Optimal health and wellness is a state of being, which arises when we move beyond unhealthy habits and destructive thought-forms that we often too easily permit. We must embrace a conscious, focused attention on beneficial practices that create optimal health and wellbeing.
The following conscious exercises (as well as various meditation methods) are highly recommended as daily practice for a healthy, happy life:
conscious deep breathing
(10 minutes, morning and evening)
Breathe through a wide-open mouth. Fill the lungs to capacity. Hold for the count of ten then slowly and easily let the breath out. During this practice let your mind rest in a peaceful place alone with nature.
Results – There will be less stress build-up and things around you will seem to move easier.
Use five minutes each morning and evening after CDB exercise for your self talk. Think of and list all your positive qualities. Begin to describe yourself in self-affirming tones. Fake it till you feel it.
Results – You will begin to build a positive ID, replacing all non-productive core beliefs.
As often as possible, and for as long as possible, take off your shoes and walk on the grass. Wear shoes without rubberized shoes, and use grounding mats at your workstation and in your bed.
Results – You will feel more relaxed and peaceful.
exercise / movement
Develop a regular exercise pattern, morning or evening. This routine should be at least 30 minutes. Walking, running, jogging, weight training, dancing, aerobics, push-ups are all great.
Results – An immediate sense of emotional well-being, mental clarity, an increase in energy and performance levels. For those who want to lose weight – exercise is a great fat burner.
Ties in with all the above.
Results – You will begin to make better life choices and reap their productive benefits.
Use 15 minutes every day to dream and affirm your grandest potential. Avoid doubts to encroach on these creative sessions.
Results – Life will begin to bring opportunities your way. Inner peace and prosperity.
a spirit of generosity
Make giving a habit. You always have something to give or to share – time, goodwill, love, etc.
Results – Immediate increases in prosperity and well-being.
Trust is a vital element of our daily practice. It is by accepting ourselves and the rest of our universe as our only reality and support. Learning to trust yourself completely gives you the foundation to stand and interact with the rest of life from a position of strength. By trusting ourselves implicitly we establish the basis from which all of our needs are met.
May Peace be with you in your daily practice
