CONTINUING OUR 12-STAGE JOURNEY TO WELLNESS
This week our journey focuses on BREATHING & RELAXING, the second of 12 keys to wellness in the Wellness Inventory. We can survive for many weeks without food, several days without water, but without air, life ceases in a matter of minutes. When the air is clear, your lungs strong, your body relaxed, and your mind at peace, you experience total wellbeing. Unfortunately, this ideal is seldom realized.
If you have resisted exercise in the past, it is especially important that you design a program you can live with and stay with — a gentle, step-by-step program that will appeal to your fun-loving inner child or provide companionship or quiet time alone. In "Move for the Health of It—Do Something Aerobic" John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., provides you practical tips for creating just such a program.
A good chair at the appropriate height provides a solid foundation from which to work. In "Too High or Too Low" Erik Peper, Ph.D. and Katherine Hughes Gibney guides you as you explore various options until you determine the most comfortable height.

Over the past twenty years, yoga and music – two powerful approaches to optimal health – have garnered enormous credibility in the western world. In "Derive the Most From Life" Russill Paul discusses the yoga of sound, a highly specialized yogic system and methodology that brings together universal healing principles found in yoga and music into a single, unified approach. It requirs neither the extreme flexibility of yoga postures, nor the complexities of music.
Sometimes a child won't have a bowel movement for many days, and parents aren't sure whether or not to be concerned.

In "That Old-Time Religion" Philip Goldberg reflects on a recent historical trend: the separation of religion and spirituality. He encourages investigating the mystical corners of your own faith and/or outside of it. By integrating those elements into your spiritual path you are essentially restoring religion to its original meaning: to reconnect with the sacred Source of all that is. That, after all, is the ultimate purpose of religion and spirituality, the place where both come together.
