Day 73

image (35)Our lives are often dominated by the needs of work, family, children and a host of competing responsibilities. That’s why I’m asking you to find some time just for you. It isn’t selfish and it doesn’t detract from your other duties but it will help to restore some much-needed balance to your life. Set aside some time for yourself every single day. Use it for whatever you want. Meditate. Dream. Think about your goals. Think about your own needs and welfare.

 

Make this an important part of your daily routine.

 

Set aside time to make plans for yourself. Focus on you and use your special time to consider how to improve your well-being. Let the seeds of creativity germinate in your imagination and help you fulfill your individual needs, opening up greater possibilities for self-expression and personal fulfillment. As you take care of others and your daily responsibilities, take time to care of you as well.

Day 86

I’d like to encourage you to develop a much healthier relationship with your body. This is a subject we touch on a regular basis because it’s so important to total well-being. We tend to have the most negative reactions to our bodies and this is potentially harmful to our health, happiness and well-being. So I’d like to remind you to start the day by remembering to smile at yourself in the mirror. It might feel uncomfortable but it helps to establish a more co-operative relationship between your body and your subconscious. Learning to appreciate the miracle of your body, despite what you might feel it looks like, is a fundamental step towards healing, restoring, rejuvenating and strengthening your body. So let’s show some positive appreciation for the home we live in for the entire duration of our lives: our bodies.

Day 88

Language forms a vital link between the world of our thoughts and imagination and the way we connect to the outside world. But have you noticed how easy it is to use negative language rather than positive expressions? We say ‘should’, ‘might’ and ‘maybe’ rather than ‘will’, ‘shall’ and ‘definitely’. Shifting our language into a more positive framework helps to focus our energy on precise outcomes and encourages our minds to overcome obstacles and concentrate on achieving our goals. Conditional expressions reveal an expectation of failure. Clear statements of intent reinforce our will to achieve whatever we set out to do. Become more aware of the words you use. Watch out for negative, weakening words that dilute your power to fulfill your goals. Choose positive, powerful expressions and feel the difference in your outlook. Let your daily use of language become a key to success, fulfillment and well-being.

Day 101

If you’ve ever wondered why our physical posture seems to present such a challenge in our technologically advanced society, you might want to look at the posture of people who live in what appears to our western eyes to be much simpler environments. I’ve always been impressed by the typical posture of the Afar people of East Africa, who display the most natural and efficient bodily posture, perhaps reflecting Nature’s original intention of how our bodies are supposed to function. We share the same DNA as these amazing people and have very much the same capacity to employ our bodies in such a natural and superbly efficient manner. The differences between us though are striking. We wear shoes that rarely promote good posture. We sit hunched on chairs for hours in meetings and in front of computer screens. We display the signs of constant stress that reflect the daily fears and anxieties of our lives. We have strayed far from the original efficiency of our evolutionary development. Now I’m not suggesting that we strip off our western attire and become nomadic cattle herders to regain our inherited capacity for better posture but if we can learn to relax and activate our deep, abdominal core muscles, the changes to our health and well-being can be astonishing. It’s what Nature intended.

Day 133

I listened to a man today who lamented the fact that he’d never tried skiing. In his mid-fifties, he felt he’d left it too late to begin. The incident reminded me of another man that I met many years ago who was in his eighties. We were on a ski slope and he was waiting to meet his instructor and start his first skiing lesson. The main difference between those two individuals lay in their attitude. If you feel that old age has suddenly overtaken you, you’ll look for evidence to confirm your view and you’ll be sure that you were right to surrender to the limitations of infirmity. But our attitude shapes our expectations and can either harm or enhance our well being. We certainly need to keep our bodies moving, stretch carefully every day, give the cardio vascular system a chance to work properly and make sure we’re in good enough shape to tackle any physical activity. But the willingness to pursue a new sport can be a powerful incentive to get in better shape and encourage us to take better care of our bodies. I knew a wonderful man who was still skiing black runs in his eighties and I recommend his example to anyone who needs a little encouragement to find new ways of enjoying sport.

Day 135

Prayer is a controversial subject because it easily draws us into the realm of religion, faith and personal belief. Whatever the religious or philosophical background that shapes the act of prayer, it is worth remembering that prayer can have a deeply calming and reassuring influence on our feelings. Evidence suggests that spiritual pursuits can greatly enhance our health and well being. Awareness of our thoughts, feelings and behaviour, inner contemplation, prayer and meditation all serve to calm our thoughts and connect us to a deeper aspect of ourselves. The advantage of prayer is that it often focuses our attention on the needs of others, turning our concerns for ourselves towards the challenges that others must face in their lives. This can help us to put our own problems into a better context and, in praying for the welfare of others, we find peace and comfort in the face of our own, personal challenges. We are so much more than a collection of chemicals driven by our genetic programming. We should never underestimate the power of human potential nor dismiss too easily the power of prayer and contemplation.
