Hello again Natural Health Family. I was able to go to Chicago over the weekend and learn a lot about health and healing. The seminar was a great refresher of different things I have learned. Sometimes when we see it differently it helps to gain a different perspective of the same material and so we go from learning to applying the information. One aspect that was brought up was what we have the ability to control, mainly our focus. 

During the seminar, we were taught some martial arts and how it can be applied in our lives. The instructor wanted to show more principles of what he used to be better at his craft. As we stated, focus is important in any area of life. He also discussed when fighting with another that leverage is important. When we are able to find leverage then we can find a solution to many situations. This doesn’t always mean more about attacking or fighting the other person. Rather it is more about using defense and being able to adapt to a tight spot we may find ourselves in. 

Life can throw us some curveballs. When we talk about health it is important to realize it is our adaptability to any situation that ultimately helps with the integrity of our own health. Sometimes when life seems to speed up and be moving fast it can be our own ability to slow ourselves down. Many times people may get caught up on things they themselves can’t control. This brings different attitudes of worry and frustration. However, when we focus on what we can control such as our focus we are able to take the necessary steps for the change that is needed at the time. 

We may not always find ourselves in the best of positions. However, being able to accept what is can allow life to unfold in ways that actually can help us see something more clearly and take the next steps to get where we want to go. We can’t control everything but we can control our focus and our ability to adapt to life’s changes.

Have a great week!
