It’s good to know the cure for the blues this time of year, and also the cure for stress. Often they become one and the same and if there’s one time of year they rear their ugly head, it’s the holiday
It’s good to know the cure for the blues this time of year, and also the cure for stress. Often they become one and the same and if there’s one time of year they rear their ugly head, it’s the holidays.
“Water” and “air” appear to be two of the solutions. We are spirits in the corporeal world, we mustn’t forget, and the solution to our “problems” involving nourishing that vessel.
Ko Ko Taylor is singin’ the blues. It seems her man has done her wrong.
Some other woman Is making love Some other woman makin’ love to you Somebody bring me some water I’m burning up alive My baby got another lover Don’t know how I’ll survive Somebody bring me some water!
So water is the cure for the blues.
Subscribers to my eZine were recently polled as to what helped them get through the frenzy of Christmas. They were given many choices, including “Using my Emotional Intelligence skills,” which the first person chose. I think that was the student who knew what the teacher wanted to hear.
The results of the poll however have been a neck-and-neck race involving another basic element: air. Tied for first-place are “Laughing at least 3x a day” and “Breathing. Deeply.”
THE ROLLER COASTER
Remember your first roller coaster ride, when no one warned you? That first dip sucked the marrow from your bones and you wondered what was supposed to be fun about it. Approaching the next dip, your more-experienced buddy (if you were lucky) yelled, “Laugh! Laugh!” and you did, and it was all manageable.
Letting air in, letting air out.
The word “inspiration” comes from the Greek for “breathing in.” When we breathe in, we bring in oxygen that feeds the cells and allows us to think clearly.
Breathing air in, in-spires us and we function better. Letting it out gets rid of the toxins, and the movement also prevents “the bends” from those roller-coaster moments we have.
We are spirits in the corporeal world. “we” live in bodies that are composed of elements and need the basics of air and water.
