Last time I wrote about what the importance of emotional sustenance to our health and what I do to support myself with emotional sustenance.
I realized I needed to get busy again incorporating the emotional activities that give me peace and calm. So, I did exactly what I wrote I would do:
- Pulled out my bag of knitting from the back of my closet and began to finish knitting a lovely, functional sweater.
I need to CREATE as I’m relaxing. This creative relaxation nourishes my mind and spirit. Others might:
- write music
- write books
But to bring all this relaxation together? We need to regularly EXERCISE our physical body. Yes, I belong to a health club and I run the treadmill, lift weights, and stretch 4-5 times per week. When I can’t go, or just don’t FEEL LIKE going to the health club (hey, I’m human), I use this inexpensive, effective tool. 10-15 minutes seems to give ME almost as much cardio benefit as a 30 minute run:
I can’t endorse rebounders and rebounding enough. Bill and I have had one for over 10 years. (See picture above. See how the cover has become frayed from regular use?)
You can use this light-weight trampoline in the privacy of your home. It is one of the few pieces of equipment that moves the lymph system. So important for health. Go to the link above and read about the many amazing benefits.
Remember, health is wealth. Let’s protect our physical health…this most vital natural resource!
