As someone who is usually hesitant to try new things I’ve found that if you give something new a try, it could result in some really nice benefits and rewards. A few years ago I wrote about trying yoga classes for the first time, and as it turns out it’s something that has really helped my pain issues when they come on. I attend hot yoga classes, and I know for many with MS this style is not an option if heat sensitivity symptoms are an issue with the disease, but yoga in other formats can be beneficial too.

Do you often wonder what you can do to improve your physical health? Many of you may have thought about how to become more mobile, flexible, or just happier about the way you look and feel. Physical wellness is more than just exercising all of the time or following a perfect diet. Let’s face it, we are all human; we sometimes indulge when we know we shouldn’t or we don’t keep up on our exercise when life gets busy or we aren’t feeling well.
I am a busy wife and mother of two who works full-time. I don’t always have time to walk or exercise and, to be quite frank, I sometimes have the time but just don’t want to do it. But I try to stay positive and not let one or two setbacks every now and then get in my way.
Did you know that there are a lot of ways to achieve physical wellness such as:
- Staying mentally positive
- Doing breathing exercises
- Trying yoga or tai-chi
These activities can help lower heart disease, improve brain function, lower blood pressure and increase flexibility.
They say “life is about the journey not the destination”, we all need to find the things that work to make our journey easier. Adopting better happiness habits right away can help you feel better. Being open to something new might make you feel happier and healthier too!
Did you know that September 21st is known as the International Day of Peace, or World Peace Day? A day that encourages peace and the strength of positive ideas and movements, this internationally observed time is celebrated throughout countries across the world.
In a society that’s currently faced with some troubling and distressing times, it’s important to reflect on the idea of peace and what it means to you. It doesn’t have to look the same from person to person because everyone is unique in their own thoughts and feelings. It’s about carrying out behaviors and actions that can increase positivity and optimism and a sense of tranquility.
The things that can endorse and increase peace do not have to be grand gestures. It can be personal and private moments where you find strength from certain actions, or it can be doing good deeds for others and promoting positive thinking. The possibilities of peace can be endless because the gestures and concept behind it are endless.
You can find peace through meditation, songs, books, your relationships with others and yourself. You can choose to get involved in community activities or ask others to join events that help promote peaceful and positive thinking. No matter the task, the idea of peace can be translated in many different forms and its message remains everlasting.
What brings you peace?
