Today is a day to renew our own lives. This article will be the start of a series of on how to relax and get your soul and body together so that you can be whole when this is done. I want to start with breathing because learning to breath properly is important in the relaxation process—not only physically but emotionally. When you started through your divorce did you ever feel like you were in between breaths? Like the next one would never come? You would never again feel that fresh air in your lungs? Divorces can be a long drawn out process that completely takes your breath away. Learning to breathe again is an important step to recovery. No matter where you are in the process it is important to take that first breath and realize that you can.
The intuitive person is someone very special. It is as if they possess magical powers. Sometimes called discernment, this personality type can see a person for who they really are.
If you are a student and are guilty of committing one or more of these bad habits you should ditch them now.
Seattle, WA—Not even a bike crash could stop award-winning Ed Sheeran from performing across Asia on his most recent tour. He’s still playing full sets every night and selling out shows and doesn’t plan on stopping bike riding anytime soon.
Stress can be cured by not indulging in nicotine, caffeine, or alcohol. I was a functional alcoholic for years before I decided to quit drinking altogether. This helped a lot, including my use of medications. To this day, I do not touch alcohol. Stress generally causes those who suffer from it to feel tense or wound up from the anxiety that stress can cause. Exercise can help improve your mood, at least 30 minutes a day can help. I don’t know much about relaxing my muscles either, which I need to do more along with feeling my feelings. I’m trying to do that whole, eat enough protein thing too.
Disability. When you hear this term, what is the first image that pops into your head? Someone in a wheelchair? Someone who is blind? What emotions do you feel? Sadness? Pity? Relief that you don't have a disability? Or rejection of the term "disability" in regards to yourself? Do you make assumptions as to what the "disabled" person can and can't do?
Sleep is a basic and necessary human function. Yet with all the advancements in modern science and medicine, we still don’t know what sleep ultimately does. When you really think on how little we know about sleep and its function, the thought becomes baffling considering this is something every human spends around a third of their life doing.
I guess I should start off by letting you know that I’m nobody special. In fact, I’m probably physically more inept than a lot of people. When I started breakdancing back in 2001, I noticed that there were different types of intellect out there. I made up some of them that made sense to me: Street smarts allowed you to read other people well, book smarts was how much actual information you can retain in your brain, creative smarts is knowing how to integrate all your thoughts for something useful, and then there was the dreaded physical smarts. I don’t mean using body language either (I think body language would fall under street smarts). Physical smarts to me was how much control you have over your body to do things. For instance, if someone showed you a few basic dance steps, someone physically smart would be able to understand what was needed and be able to perform it identically with the same rhythm.
So you want to start going to the gym?
Cigarette smoking accounts for more than 480,000 deaths annually in the United States. This is almost one in every five deaths. No wonder that smokers are interested in ways to reduce the health risks of this harmful habit. Unfortunately, most of them either don’t work or increase the chances of physical consequences.
Chiropractic is a form of holistic healthcare that can benefit everyone, from young to old. Sadly, the healing message of chiropractic is not reaching many due to communication barriers. The deaf community is considered to be an under-served population in terms of holistic healthcare and the primary reason is because the message of true health and wellness is not being communicated in their main language, American Sign Language.
