Day 2: Have you ever stopped to notice just how tense your body may be? I've noticed for some time now that even while watching television I am clenched. My muscles are at attention in the worse way and I grit my teeth. This started 5 years ago after Hurricane Katrina and I tried all types of things including medication (which I dislike). Meditating is the only thing that truly seems to be effective, but after a few hours I would notice I'm tense again. While sitting at my desk reading a few great blogs yesterday I noticed my body was tingling (in a very good way). Every muscle in my body was at ease and I was not clenching my teeth together! I believe I am achieving this now, because I am more mindful of how I'm treating myself. My body does not deserve the lack of attentiveness I've given it and now a beautiful Aha moment has arrived. Throughout the day whenever I notice myself tensing up I immediately corrected it. This is only day 2 my friends! Just imagine what nuggets we'll produce by the end of this journey!
*Tip* When you're at your desk or where ever you may be be mindful of what message you're sending your body. Allow every muscle to relax. If you do this often not only will your body thank you, but you will feel awesome!

Today's Kind Act: I'm going to buy myself that 8GB memory chip for my new cell phone that I've always wanted, but denied myself the joy of getting it.
How are you treating yourself today my friends?
