Meditation and Chicken Painting

Nothing ever really changes in my life. Thankfully I still have a loving family, with needs, a full-time family practice, rescue dogs that love me, and a boarding kennel to operate.  Sometimes I have no control over these obligations.  The only control I have is how I handle each obligation or situation.
So, I have been working on meditation. Yep, sitting quietly or standing in a tree pose helps me refocus, center my thoughts and push out negative feelings.   

  • According to several books on Meditation, meditation brings the brainwave pattern into a relaxed state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, and delicate.  With regular practice of meditation:
  • Anxiety decreases
  • Emotional stability improves
  • Creativity increases
  • Happiness increases
  • Gain clarity and peace of mind
  • Problems become smaller
  • Meditation sharpens the mind by increasing focus and expands through relaxation
  • Meditation makes you aware - that your inner attitude determines your happiness.

So if you see me standing in the middle of the clinic in a tree pose, know that I am working on being a better person.  

This week for my crafty side I started a painting.  I am not a painter, but there is something relaxing about sitting with a paintbrush in your hand and being able to add color and life to a blank canvas.
Here is hoping you have a perfect week
