What Hides in the Gap between your Mind and Body

There is this bizarre gap that exists between your body and your mind which almost everyone is aware of yet so difficult to tap into. You try talk therapy. You try to exercise it out. You even try to meditate out. Yet it lingers.

Five Words and Movement FUN

Our bodies each have a distinct history and I have yet come cross someone coming back with the same health history questionnaire as someone else.  So how can we each have the same exercise program?

We can offer space for persons to rest, be the companion to someone, be someone's playmate for exercise or offer the calm of sharing quiet space. Take a moment to reflect on those lovely persons we rely upon to be the lovely bench in your life for the perfect moments and how you are that bench bringing joy and comfort to others. When I see a bench next to the path, river or playground I usually seem to find a warm smile of gratitude to those that provided the opportunity to take a comfortable moment to sit. Read More
