Look For The Possibilities

The main them of this week's blog has been adopting new perspectives for the management of stress in our lives.  To change a situation, a new outlook is needed.  
I’ve quoted Albert Einstein to help gain understanding that to solve a problem a new consciousness needs to be developed to discover the solution.   We are resourceful beings with strengths and abilities that we tend to take for granted.   I’ve asked that a look be taken at the basics of daily life to gain a better understanding of the tools already at hand to alleviate daily stress.   Developing time management skills, eating nutritious foods, and getting sufficient sleep are strategies that can be readily utilized to alleviate stress which promotes health.  The choices we make daily are choices that can result in minimizing stress which promotes health.  Continue to explore techniques you can incorporate into your daily life that will bring you the benefits of a less stressful life.
Contact me if you would like additional information.
I leave you with the following T’ai Chi Saying:
Tension is who you think you should be.  Relaxation is who you are.
Remember to look for the possibilities.
