Keep Moving For Healthy Balance

I recently accompanied a friend to a class for back problems. The speaker was a physical therapist that specialized in sports injuries...talked about using our muscles all the time…with awareness in different activities. When we get up out of our chairs we should use our leg muscles to lift us up instead of heaving ourselves up with...never to young or old to benefit.

If you happen to find it difficult holding still in your mind for any length of time, know that is o.k. A minute would be sufficient as a starting point if that is where your level of comfort is. Desire and effort is what counts.

    Quotes about Hope

    If you need some hope, look for the good in others, in yourself, and in your Maker. At various times throughout life, there are setbacks and tragedies. These bad things are part of being human. The hope is what keeps us going and helps us to find happiness and joy in the suffering.

    Instead of running from pain and suffering, we should embrace it. Why? It allows the soul to mourn and finally to heal properly. The whole process is somewhat complicated and different for everyone. However, there are things that can help.


    Prayer can bring hope to those filled with despair. The very act of prayer helps you to go outside of yourself and focus on the positive. If you are in deep despair, you can at least pray for hope and it will come. Prayer has a keen way of focusing the mind and helping us to stop focusing on self. This act, alone, helps humans to break out of the ego or pain like state.

    Doing Things

    If you want more hope, it is important to keep doing things. Even the little things like keeping your car clean or going on a bike ride will infuse a lighter spirit. That’s why it is good to do little things for others that need hope. Having the little things done, in life, makes everything a little easier to do.

    Quotes of Hope

    It’s good to have information about how to be hopeful. Quotes are often a good source of inspiration. For example, humor enlightens the mind, lifts the spirit, and comes at will. It’s the sure fire way to live life. And, hope is something you get from God and yourself. It can’t be handed to you.

    Positive Stories

    It is also a good idea to tell yourself hopeful stories. Did you ever work for something important and get it? Do you feel a certain joy when helping others or when doing good? Telling yourself some positive things can also help you find hope.

    Where there is light there is also truth and with truth comes hope because truth tells a wonderful story.

  • ‘The Untethered Soul’ Soars to the New York Times Best-Seller List

    OAKLAND, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012

    The Untethered Soul did what no previous New Harbinger Publications book has doneit hit the New York Times Best-Seller List.

    The Untethered Soul is currently #5 on the New York Times Paperback Advice list for the week of August 26. Additionally, The Untethered Soul has risen onto the following best-seller lists: Wall Street Journal (#5 in Non-Fiction and #7 in e-book Non-Fiction), and Nielsen BookScan (#1 in Self-Help and #7 in Non-Fiction), among others.

    Although The Untethered Soul has been one of New Harbingers top selling books since they co-published it with Noetic Books in 2007, its sales have increased exponentially in the past few weeks. National TV interviews have generated sales bumps for many New Harbinger titles in the past, but never has the Bay Area publishing company seen such a result as it has with this book.

    Matthew McKay, publisher and cofounder of New Harbinger Publications, says, In our 40th year, New Harbinger Publications has our first New York Times bestseller. Its no accident that bestsellers are rare for small to medium size publishers. New Harbinger has always been a house driven by high editorial standards we still are. As a result, books we deeply care about, that have the capacity to change lives, are now making their way into the hands of so many more readers.

    Sales manager Julie Kahn states, The Untethered Souls appearance on the New York Times best-seller listfive years after its initial publication dateillustrates both the efficacy of our publishing model and the universality of the topics our books explore. We are most grateful to our buyers for supporting and hand-selling this phenomenal book.

    About The Untethered Soul

    In The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, spiritual teacher Michael Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.

  • Barbara Anne Syassen Turns to Nature as Source of Well-Being

    QUEENSLAND, Australia (PRWEB) December 05, 2014

    In The Tree That Talks (published by Trafford Publishing), Barbara Anne Syassens childrens storybook, young readers and adults are guided toward living better lives, where their emotional, physical and spiritual health is improved through nature and the power of positive thinking.

    The Tree That Talks has been selected for inclusion in the Gold Seal program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential. It was also given a glowing review by the U.S. Review of Books.

    The Tree That Talks helps children learn how to change a negative thought into a positive one. In the book, Syassen encourages young readers to live in the moment. She believes learning and applying this art can help children create a positive frame of mind which enriches their lives and the lives of those around them. The book also contains information/meditation activities for parents, caregivers and teachers to use for their children.

    An excerpt from The Tree That Talks:

    Yes, thats right, replied the tree. If you dont worry about yesterday or tomorrow, and enjoy what you are doing right now, this will help you to be happy. It will also help you when you are having trouble making friends, or doing your school homework and many other things.

    The tree continued On days when you are upset, feeling sad, or not happy about the situation you are experiencing, then think of something that makes you happy. This could be hugging me or someone you love. The happy thought helps to make the sad thought go away.

    Syassen hopes The Tree That Talks influences a shift in peoples lifestyles.

    Children are being brought up with an abundance of information and technology, encouraging an indoor lifestyle, detached from the natural world outside and its healing properties, she says. This book encourages children to spend time with nature and make the most of what it has to offer them. It also encourages parents to spend time with their children outdoors with nature.
