That playful spark

Play is serious stuff: it teaches us about freedom, fairness and fantasy, about boundaries and honour, rules and ruthlessness, about each other and everything else.

Friedrich Schiller once said that man “is only completely a man [or woman] when he [or she] plays”.

And yet as we grow up we move away from playfulness. We become too serious, too self-conscious, too busy to play. The challenge isn’t to become playful. It is to remain playful.

We were all born with that playful spark, that wonder, that capacity for spontaneity and delight. We are still able to become playful, at the drop of a hat, given the permission, the opportunity, and the hat. One of these hats is of course laughter yoga.

So get in touch with your inborn ability to be playful.

Suddenly it is nearly Christmas, and the end of the year is here. So we thought we’d share our Holiday Tips with you.

 

10 Tips for Holiday Health

Tip 1: Drink plenty of water

Water is essential to the health of our cells. Get into a good routine during the holidays so that this can be continued once work resumes.


Tip 2: Do the Brain Tapping (Cortices technique) twice daily

You want to be just as fresh on your holidays as you are at work. So don’t let this simple routine disappear once the holidays start. See our Brain Tapping instructions.


Tip 3: Get plenty of rest

Allow a few days at the start of the holiday to go at a slower pace. Holidays are a great time to catch up on some extra sleep.


Tip 4: Eat plenty of salads and fruit

The warmer weather makes it so easy to eat healthily. And this will encourage losing any of the weight you may have gained over the colder months.


Tip 5: Do more exercise than you normally do

Daily exercise of 30 minutes will slow down your rate of aging, according to new research. Extra fitness is good insurance for your return to work.


Tip 6: Cut down the alcohol

Ensure you have two alcohol-free days (AFDs). Remember that alcohol is very dehydrating and hence tends to age us more quickly. Too much is also disastrous for our brain.


Tip 7: Spend quality time with friends and family

Depending on how busy you’ve been you may have neglected some important relationships. Now is the time to reconnect. If the relationship is challenging, spend some time thinking about the best approach.

Meeting our emotional needs is the key to good health. Another key is accepting the choices other people make.


Tip 8: Listen to your body

Remember that as we are self-healing whatever is happening right now in your physical body is your body’s attempt to keep you healthy. While it can be a nuisance to be having symptoms of pain, etc, listen to what your body is telling you.

Is there something that you haven’t dealt with?
What can you do right now to improve this condition?

Tip 9: Do something to exercise the mind

Crosswords, Sudoku, brain teasers etc are great for the mind. What activities do you enjoy that keep you mentally alert? Make time for them.


Tip 10: Connect to Spirit/God/Universe

Spend time thinking about your life in relation to the bigger picture. Are you clear about your life’s purpose? What could you be doing in the next 12 months to feel more connected to something greater than yourself?

Stress comes from our thinking

Stress comes from our thinking

 

Healing Tip

What have you been thinking lately? Have your thoughts been positive or negative.

This winter I’ve taken time to go inwards. I’ve been doing lots of meditation and have stepped back from actively marketing my business. As an introvert it is always a challenge to talk to lots of people. And it takes me out of my comfort zone.

Which has brought me to the point of questioning the business. Do I really want to be doing this?

There are always lots of different roles that a small business owner has to do. And at times I feel overwhelmed.

 

Stress comes from our thinking

 

That is when I really need to listen to my thoughts. Using Byron’s Katie’s The Work, www.thework.com, I can ask “Is it true?” “Do I really know that it is true?”

Frequently I can see that I have made up a story to reflect how I am feeling.

Katie’s questions give us insights about ourselves. They help us to recognize the judgments we are making about the stressful situation.

Inner peace is the art of meeting ourselves with understanding. We need to recognize that the seeds for our unhappiness lie in the sub-conscious mind. These are the belief systems we have inherited as well as our unresolved emotional baggage, along with our attachments and mindsets.

Life invariably gives us people and situations that are challenging. Keeping an eye on our dominant thought patterns can help us to lessen their impact on our life. We can choose our actions rather than find that we have already reacted.
