Thriving

“A good day is thriving at work and play while discovering the natural balance and breath of well-being.”

– Maria Lauren (Maria Elena Alberici – Riccio)

 

On this day, I was blessed to be able to walk on the beach before driving to work, where I teach a variety of exercise classes at Kaiser Permanente. This is not my regular routine, so I took a selfie to remind myself of this day. 🙂

“We are committed to improve and maintain our members’ total well-being—mind and body—because we understand that being healthy is not just about living, it’s about living well.” – Kaiser Permanente

Nurturing your mind and nourishing your body is important.

I have found that focusing on gratitude helps to deter my mind from worries and the disappointments of life.

A spiritual nurturing and nourishing includes a daily communication with God.

Gods creations, the beauty of nature and the lovely kindness of people inspire me. This reminds me of the characteristics of God’s own nature.

Opening my heart to the Holy Spirit helps me get through days when I have no ‘get up and go.’

My family and friends, as well as my colleagues and patients at work give me a sense of belonging, caring, giving and receiving. 🙂

 

At Kaiser Permanente, we promote wellness within our company and to our clients. It isn’t healthy to sit at a desk for too many hours. Make it a habit to get out of your chair to move your body, your blood, muscles etc. When you take this much-deserved exercise break, you improve brain functions with a renewed sense of energy and perspective.

Get up off your chair and walk! Exercise and be more productive!

New Year – New Beginnings – No Resolutions!

 

I resolve to make no resolutions for the New Year!

What I have already put in motion is getting rid of life’s old rubbish to make room for a new life in 2018.

My A-B-C’s: Accepting – Blissful – Connection…

  • Accepting the truth. Faithfully knowing that the truth will set you and me free even when the truth is painful.

 

  • Blissful heartfelt joy is a feeling that may fill a couple when they hold their newborn baby after a wait of nine months and a long labor. A grateful heart is a blissful heart.

 

  • Connection to the Higher Source of energy, wisdom and love.

This I pray, ‘Mold me and my life, dear Lord.’

The Creator, the Potter, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit creates you and me, the clay, for a life of purpose.

I am grateful for my supportive family and friends.
