We’ve all got a lot on our plates these days. All of us.
We’re at a point where it’s time to return to normal.
The question is this: What is normal anyway?
Certainly it’s not what we had before. It’s time to make way for a better life..
Whether we’re interested or not, our spiritual centers need encouragement, support, and protection. Inner fitness smoothes out the bumps in our travels through life.
I don’t know if I speak for everyone, or even anyone, but I find myself embracing this new normal while experiencing grief.
With a grounded inner core, a new normal is easier to find and recognize. Essential requirements for inner fitness include encouragement, support, safety, and self-confidence.
There are things you can do:
Positive thoughts are essential – even before you get out of bed. When you wake, ask yourself “How can I be happy today?”
Happiness is the great equalizer. You are never too young or too old for happiness. Happiness doesn’t need education. Happiness doesn’t need good health. Happiness is the only thing I know that is available to everyone.
All happiness needs is for you to “be happy.”
Listen to Your Body.
When you listen, your body will talk to you. It will never lie to you as healing begins. Inner fitness is real.
Are you trying to adjust to your new reality? Do you want to change your life? Is something wrong, and are you trying to find out what?
Tune in to your body several times a day. Do you have pain anywhere? Is your spine aligned? What is your energy level? Are you hungry? Thirsty? Tired? Joyful?
Good Health is a Priority.
When you value your good health, you become a valuable person. You love yourself. When you expect excellent health, your thinking changes. Life unsticks itself.
Claim your wellness!
Respect Your Emotional Self
Your feelings are opportunities to grow. Emotions are messages from your body which will help set you free. Your emotions can help you understand pain, extra weight, sorrow, fear.
When you remove these feelings, you make way for joyful health, peace, grounding.
A better life emerges.

Include Exercise Every Day
In 1513, Ponce de Leon discovered the Fountain of Youth in what is now St. Augustine, Florida. The Fountain of Youth still exists and keeps people everywhere healthy. There is at least one branch of it in your neighborhood, located on a sidewalk or roadside where you can walk every day.
If that’s not convenient for you, another nearby branch is in your local fitness center. You’ll be healthier when you visit it regularly.
Take a Grounding Break
Try meditation, walking your dog, giving your cat a massage, or staring out the window into nothingness.
The activity isn’t so important. What’s important is that, when you complete this small task, you’ll have given yourself a refreshing, grounding break.
You’ll continue with your day feeling more positive, relaxed. Your fresh new take on the day will ripple out to those around you.
Review Your Situation
Now might be a good time to write about important moments in your life. You don’t have to focus on what happened in your life. Focus, instead, on what you did about what happened to you.
Write short stories, essays, poems, or keep a journal.
Whatever you choose, if you need help, you may find it at your library.
Reflexology and Reiki
Do not overlook a weekly session. Both these modalities bring homeostasis which is crucial these days. Both these modalities are adaptable to many different situations.
Do you practice Reiki? No? Find a teacher. If you do…have you thought about a Reiki circle for your area?
We all need more Reiki. We all need more reflexology.
When I think about Reiki and reflexology, my heart sings!
