Summer Solstice Week: Our Health and the Summer Solstice
At the Summer Solstice the Earth assumes its most direct tilt into
the Sun. At the Summer Solstice the Sun at noon is in the Northern
Hemisphere very nearly over Cuba orbiting the Tropic of Cancer (again
at 23.5 º, but this time 23.5 º North).
Our good health is all we have that stands between us and the aging
process. The longer you keep your physical body in optimum health,
the longer you have your temple to keep your soul on this plane.
Detoxification is the best way to keep the body at its most ultimate
By enjoying a healthy, nutritional diet, getting good quality sleep
and moderate exercise this can keep our physical form at it's best,
always. Take the opportunities that are offered. Make the
opportunities that are not. Find your Priorities of Life and give
them merit. This is the best season to do this. This is the time when
we have the greatest energy to utilize the power we are given!
Improve Your Health
Would you like to improve your health? Better your life? Be who you
are suppose to be? We sometimes stray from these very simple facts
that can make our lives the most fulfilled. Consider these ideas:
1. Visit your Alternative healthcare practitioner at least once a
Alternative Medicine looks at the entire individual on a functional
systemic basis that integrates all components of our mental, visceral
and emotional bodies. See your local practitioner for preventative
and maintaining good health as well.
2. Eat Nutritionally Sound Food.
A balanced diet with the appropriate amounts of protein,
carbohydrates, fats and water is essential for sustaining a well
fueled body which will allow you to do everything in your life to
it's greatest potential.
3. Exercise and Move Your Body.
Movement has been shown to ease depression, increase flexibility,
keep muscles toned and help us to gain better balance. Movement also
increases endorphins. The "happy" chemical in our brain that allows
us to think clearer, function optimally and feel great!
4. Get "good" sleep.
Everybody is different with the amount of sleep they need. The one
thing that is most important is not necessarily the quantity of sleep
but the quality we get. A sound night's sleep allows our entire body
to regenerate, replenish and rebound back into a day that is full of
life and energy.
5. Welcome the Power of Nature.
"Going back to our roots" can also mean becoming in touch again with
nature. The power of the sea, sun, trees and plants have an energy
they are willing to share with us. All we have to do is pay
6. Learn to Love!
Take the time to pay attention, appreciate and love the one you're
with. Be them friends, family or your partner, learn to love
unconditionally and without expectation.
7. Strengthen your Support.
Your family and your friends are the ones who are there for you when
you need them the most. Take the time to listen to them, share
stories, show appreciation for what they do for you and what they do
for people around them. Tell them. Let them know you. Learn to love
them for who they are, not what you want them to be.
8. Stay Spiritual.
Giving thanks to the Universe/Ultimate Power/Godhead is powerful.
Religion is a bridge to spirituality. You don't have to go to a
church or synagogue in order to be spiritual. Spirit is everywhere.
Spirit is energy and it is in all things. The best part is being
aware of it.
9. Keep Growing and Laughing
Keeping the brain stimulated is one of the best ways we can fight off
the signs of aging. Stay curious, creative and learn something new
about the world. It is essential to keep maintaining a playful spirit
and to keep the mind sharp! Find laughter throughout the day. See
things on the lighter side of life. I promise, it will bring great
10. Honor Who You Are.
You are the most powerful, successful and happiest. You deserve all
that you desire and should honor all that you are. Find the complete
and satisfied soul inside yourself. You are without a doubt, an
amazing person. Take time to honor that.
Seasonal Healing is one of the best ways to remind ourselves that it
is time to evaluate our health. Our moods and bodies change as the
seasons change. See more on seasonal healing:
