But the one thing I’m thinking of is

***************

EXERCISE!

Universities and other institutions have all taken on studies of this important activity.
The results are amazing:
An overwhelming number of findings indicate that 1/2 hour of exercise is as effective as medication.
That means walking 15 minutes one way and 15 minutes back to home or work.
I’m not talking the major workout here.
Some other ideas:
Put on some favorite music and move to it for half an hour
Walk around the mall, gazing at window displays without stopping to look them over thoroughly
Park farther away from work, the grocery store or bank.  Add a stroll around the block
Take the stairs instead of the elevator
Pace while you make phone calls

Add a stretch break or two so that you stay limber.
Would you like to know about one other thing that promotes wellness?

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
