My Secret to Feeling Great

Blonde woman receiving Well Being Spa treatmentI started getting massages every other week about 20 years ago. For a large portion of that time I had a wonderful massage therapist who came to the house for 90-minute sessions, and when she moved I was prepared to go with her.

I have also frequented spas in hotels, Burke Williams, Glenn Ivy and Massage Envy to name a few other places I have been fluffed and folded. I maintain my need for this service as it relieves stress and helps heal injuries (I have also had more than my share of sports and other injuries).

Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies have found massage helpful for:

  • Stress relief
  • Managing anxiety and depression
  • Pain
  • Stiffness
  • Blood pressure control
  • Infant growth
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Boosting immunity
  • Cancer treatment
So if you can find the time and you want to feel better, treat yourself to a massage.

Prayer and Meditation

Hands in Prayer PositionPrayer is talking to God, meditation is listening for His response.

Prayer and meditation are the oldest and most practiced therapies our world knows.

Practiced daily they can lower blood pressure, facilitate healing, and change our thoughts and behaviors to ones that are more healthful and happy.

I have a pretty hectic schedule and tend to only sleep 4-5 hours nightly. How do I manage to get everything I need to accomplish done? I meditate. Some days I meditate up to 5 times for a total of 2.5 hours. I recently heard Deepak Chopra explain why he meditates up to 4 hours daily. He said, “My body is busy, but my mind is at peace.”

Ultimately, there is no wrong way to meditate — it is simply the act of bringing your attention back to whatever your intention was. So give it a try. See how much better you feel.
