Just gonna throw some random thoughts out this morning in absolutely no particular order…
For my plant eating friends, I just learned last week that DAIYA is pronounced DAY-A. I have definitely been pronouncing it wrong and they do make a good cheese. Think Good Day-a.
If you are a blood donor, or want to be, your blood is needed now more than ever. Covid has kept many regular donors away. When we were there yesterday, it was pretty empty, so you can get in and out pretty quickly and the place felt extremely safe. You get a mini health screening and a Covid antibody test as well. If you donate at OneBlood, for the next week, you get a bunch of goodies, including a $20.00 gift card. The best take away, though, is that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you know you are helping to save lives! I realize some people just can’t do it for any number of reasons, but if it’s because you have had bad experiences at the doctor’s office, I promise these people, at the blood bank, are trained to draw blood. I bruise more easily than most, but never on account of a blood donation.
On the fitness side, I often have people telling me they can’t train because they injured something. When fitness is your business, you learn quickly that you do not have that luxury, but learning that is a such a gift. If one thing hurts, do something else. I have had the experience of working with stroke patients who, in using what they could, made huge strides in improving their entire being and have even see people come back to class without their walkers and canes. If your wrist hurts, go for a walk. If your feet hurt, do some upper body work. The best way to heal is by continuing to circulate warm, oxygenated blood. If you are stuck, message me and I can try to help.
Thanks to those that reached out already this week, wanting to help with the F.F.I.T. project. Any way you can contribute is appreciated. Remember, the T stands for together, because together we are so much bigger than apart. It definitely takes a village.
If you are looking for inner peace today, stay away from the news. Feed your mind the right nutrition. Watch a good comedy and laugh out loud. Listen to music. Sing out loud. Laughing and singing are great for our lungs, throat chakra and just make us feel all around good. If you were gifted with a good voice, sing even louder!!
Do some yoga. Meditate. Play some word games. Connect with a loved one. Read a book. Look at the ocean, the mountains, the snow. Be in awe of nature. Craft. Paint. Create. Love. Give. Sing some more.
This year taught us that we don’t have control over many things…but we do have a lot of control over ourselves. Your actions determine your attitude and your attitude is directly related to your health…and peace! Go make it the best day ever. Namaste.
