The Power of Positive Daily Insights

You know how important it is to keep your body healthy, but do you think much about keeping your mind healthy?  With all of the bad news about the economy and everything else in the media it is vital to keep a positive outlook.  One great way to do that is to receive insightful daily emails that affirm how powerful and amazing you are and that good things do happen.

I currently receive two every morning that I think are very powerful.  The first is Notes from the Universe from Mike Dooley and the other is Daily Insights from Bob Proctor.  Check them out.

Qigong is Excellent Exercise

I spent 4 days at a qigong workshop and really enjoyed it.  The emphasis was on the healing aspects of qigong but I want to talk about the exercise benefits.  From watching us move through the forms you wouldn’t think it was much exercise, but you would be wrong.  The movements are slow which takes a lot of control.  Your arms are held out at either chest height or above your head for an extended period of time, which takes a lot of endurance.  Our instructor joked about how big guys who spend a lot of time working out have a hard time keeping their arms up.  Working through the forms of qigong will help you build up your endurance and work on muscles that you don’t normally pay attention to.
