"If we are truly in the present moment,
and not being carried away by our thoughts and fantasies,
then we are in a position to be free of fate
and available to our destiny.
When we are in the present moment,
our work on Earth begins."
About one in five Americans experience a form of the winter blues called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), according to fastmed.com. Symptoms include anxiety, irritability, fatigue, a lack of energy and thoughts of suicide.
The causes of SAD are still unknown, but some experts link the condition to an imbalance in serotonin and melatonin, the chemicals in the brain that regulate sleep, mood and energy levels.
For people suffering from SAD, the recommendation is to get outside during sunny days and participating in activities that boost mood.
Brrrr! It’s cold outside and it’s not just our nippy toes and frozen fingers that are complaining about the dropping temperature. Our bodies may be shivering on the outside but on the inside our sore joints and achy muscles are protesting too, with many of you telling me that your symptoms worsen in colder weather.
Massage can help elevate your mood and also decrease muscle and joint pain.
Let us help you get through the dark cold days of winter!
