Nature's Reminders

Observing nature is a wonderful way to start a day. This morning watching the eastern sky gave a vivd reminder of the wonder and color which surrounds us on a daily basis. With a forecast of clouds and rain the chances of seeing a sunrise were limited. However, there was a brilliant red line above a local rise with bare trees that looked like a scene from a photograph. As time passed the colors changed from the brighter hue to softer shades of pink, blue, and purple then disappeared behind the clouds. This reminds me of a statement I overheard from a flight attendant on a recent trip. He said he loved his job because he got to see the sun everyday even when it's cloudy. We always take it for granted that the sun rises everyday even when we can't always see it. Taking a moment to realize how much this relates to our lives gives us a better appreciation for all our gifts and blessings. At this time of the year it is very easy to feel and see the acts of of love and caring, which seem to fade with the season. Looking at nature with it's subtle changes and chances for renewal can reminds that the nurturing love and caring are present and available everyday if we take the time to stop and enjoy these gifts. Using all your senses to enjoy the free gifts that nature can supply can be a wonderful way of reducing or relieving the stress from today's hectic lives!

Healthier living and stress management is augmented by enjoying nature and being outdoors. As we look forward to fall and cooler weather we need to plan activities which will help balance our work lives with activities that can help us remember to relax and refill our personal need for calming our minds and nourishing our bodies with activities. After the vacations are over and we return to the new school year and back to routines, we tend to forget to replenish our spirits with getting back to basics. Schedule a regular time to follow the natural instincts to get and enjoy nature!

Volunteer to become Healthier

While it is beneficial to improve your life through regular exercise, did you know you can also help other people? If added motivation is needed to start exercising, think about signing up for a marathon or a 5K walk. Training for these types of events helps improve your health, but also helps the cause through fundraising . It is incredible how spiritually satisfying it is to finish a marathon event with hundreds of other participants and know your efforts will help someone else. Find a walk in your area to participate in and help a cause. You will meet so many wonderful people as you improve your health!

Lifestyle Changes are Personal

When contemplating changing to a healthier lifestyle, you need to learn what works for you. There are many opportunities to achieve the goals you desire, but the changes you attempt need to be lifelong changes not a temporary situation. When choosing to improve your health examine the details and options in any plan you want to pursue. Success will be achieved when a positive attitude and determination are part of your endeavor. Making the plan to succeed is the first step and following through will insure personal satisfaction and confidence.

Projects for the future

A new project being developed is a Wellness Education Center. This will be an opportunity to learn about living a healthier lifestyle. Coordinating the efforts to gather wellness educators into one central location is the purpose of this project. Unlike the fitness and exercise establishments in the area, this center will provide an opportunity to learn about corporate, personal and financial wellness. Healthy eating with cooking demonstrations and workshops, informational seminars and stress management education and practical application of the techniques will be a part of services being offered. Similar to the wellness centers in Oregon, this will be a place where the mission is to "Help People Live Healthier Lives". This educational opportunity will be located in the Berks County, Pa area and is planned to open in 2010.

Today's meeting included a presentation by member Chuck Holder. He represents Prepaid Legal Services and he spoke about the benefits of being proactive in having a legal service available to you on a 24/7 basis. Features such as will preparation and identity theft protection are two of the many advantages to having this service. This is beneficial to businesspersons and other people interested in having legal advice and support at a very reasonable cost.

Finding out about businesses and learning about ways to grow a business to unlimited potential is a definite benefit in belonging to this group. As the owner of KEF Consulting, LLC I have learned many tips to help me market my Stress Management Seminars and Health Promotion Programs to reach a wider variety of potential clients. I am also in the process of planning a project to open a Wellness Education Center in 2010 and asking for opinions and advice of more experienced business owners has provided me with valuable insights. My membership in this group has been an asset as I develop my entrepreneurial skills.
