Connecting To The Month Of Joyfulness


Even though the weather has been cold and snowy, there is the potential for joy this month just like all other months. We can tap into joy no matter what is going on in our lives. We can be joyful even when we are challenged, because we are learning what we need to learn. Give yourself time to play, to dance, to meditate, to travel, to do whatever brings you the most joy . Within each of us is an inner child who absolutely loves to play and have fun. When we get older, we forget to laugh and take everything so seriously. "Sickness comes from a lack of joy and healing comes from joy" -Reb Nachman of Breslov. Happiness is an inside job. You can have everything that other people dream of and still be unhappy or you can have very little and be very happy. So, put some music on and dance around your house and find the joy in the day-to-day routines and be grateful for what you have!

We would love to hear from you. Please give us feedback and share your experiences!
We are always looking for writers to share their thoughts.

Challenges Ahead

What makes challenges, challenging?

Written by Ara Wiseman

Oftentimes, I tell my students that feeling balanced fluctuates from day-to-day. It would be nice if we woke up one morning to realize that we have arrived at balance. Unfortunately, balance is not static. In every facet of our lives there are always going to be different challenges affecting our balance to provide us with an opportunity to grow and challenge ourselves.

We tend to grow and learn at the outer edges of our comfort zone. If we always stayed within that "comfort zone", never took any risks and saw the challenges that we face as obstacles, not opportunities, then we are just asking for more challenges. We will remain stuck in familiar patterns and never step outside ourselves to see that there is so much more to experience outside our self-imposed limitations. We want to remain safe, but safety does not mean holding on for dear life. I see it in my practice and with my friends, everyday. And I understand how hard it is to see it in ourselves.

Steps To A Healthier You

- Get plenty of rest & get your zzz's. Your body needs downtime to repair cells and to rest your heart.

- Drink enough water to hydrate your brain and body. Drink at least 1 liter of pure water for every 40 pounds of body weight. It is best to have your liquids unpolluted with artificial sweeteners, sugar, caffeine, or alcohol. Water also flushes out toxins. Squeeze fresh lemon in your water.

- Do not consume too much caffeine. Caffeine is the world's most popular psychoactive drug. Avoid all caffeine sources within 10 hours of going to sleep, including coffee, tea, green tea, chocolate, and caffeinated soft drinks. Instead, drink natually decaffeinated beverages, herbal tea, coconut water or water!

- Make sure to exercise. People who exercise regularly maintain a more constant weight, are less prone to overeating and cravings and are more confident. Exercise is the healthiest alternative for getting the endorphin rush to reduce stress.

- Do not consume foods that stress the body, such as sugar, excessive amounts of chocolate, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, soft drinks, junk foods, white flour products, and fried foods. High glycemic carbohydrates cause a spike and then a drop in blood sugar, which affects your overall health and mood.

Interesting Dr. Neal Barnard Talk

Neal Barnard MD discusses the science behind food additions. Willpower is not to blame: chocolate, cheese, meat, and sugar release opiate-like substances. Dr. Barnard also discusses how industry, aided by government, exploits these natural cravings, pushing us to eat more and more unhealthy foods. A plant-based diet is the solution to avoid many of these problems. Neal Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
