Beat Depression Relieve Anxiety

Overlooked Cause of Anxiety, Depression, Migraines, Heart Attacks, and Cancer

What if the cure for stress, anxiety, and depression could never be found in a pill? What if the cure for migraines, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer could never be found in drugs, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy?

anxietyWhat if the billions of dollars that we spend on the application of surgical and pharmaceutical cures is simply managing symptoms, while the root of our mental-emotional and physical ills evades us? What if we are failing to address the true cause?

Whether you’re aware of it or not, it’s likely you have a bias toward seeing everything in terms of physical cause and effect. In fact, this bias may be so ingrained, that you wonder what other possibility exists. After all, isn’t this what we’ve learned from science over the past several centuries?

What if this “reduction of everything to material causes” is simply a bias—and one that discounts the very source of mental-emotional stress and all kinds of illness? What if, instead, physical symptoms appear after they have manifested from a more primary layer of your being? What if treating this more primary layer could result in real cures?

In fact, this view is not all that far out. It has been recognized and documented for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurvedic medicine, as well as in healing traditions such as Qigong and Reiki.

In all these disciplines it is recognized that the source of illness lies in the energetic dimension and it is communicated through to the physical within the bio-chemical, electro-magnetic, and connective tissue systems of your body.

Before you think that we’re talking about placebos and pseudo-science, did you know that Reiki is now accepted as complementary treatment in more than 800 hospitals in the U.S. alone? This is because it works.

Reiki has well-documented research showing that it improves patient sleep by 86 percent, reduces pain by 78 percent, and reduces anxiety by as much as 94 percent. In addition, it has been shown to increase speed of healing by as much as 50 percent. Pretty remarkable for a simple form of “energy work.”

O.K. so how does it work?

Reiki, Qigong, TCM, and Ayurvedic medicine begin by seeing the body as an expression of a more primary subtle energy system. Health is the result of the smooth free-flow of subtle energy through the energy body. Disease begins with the disruption of energy flow, with some blockage or tension that causes energy to become stagnant.

The cause of energy disruptions can be physical injuries which cause “emotional shock” such as from a car accident or, more commonly, they are the result of tensions caused by mental stress and emotional trauma. When tension and stress overwhelm our ability to handle them well in the moment, they become stored as tension in your “energy body.” These tensions disrupt energy flow. Left unresolved, over time, this is the seed from which illness grows—whether that is chronic anxiety, depression, migraines, digestive issues, heart attack, or cancer.

Subtle energy techniques aim to recognize, relax, and release that tension and restore the smooth flow of vital energy. This in turn enables your body’s own self-healing mechanisms to come back online so your body can heal itself.

Now, this doesn’t mean that there is never a use for drugs or surgery. These can be vital and life-saving first measures. These can manage immediate life-threatening symptoms. However, to facilitate true healing, we must work on an energetic level to restore the free flow of energy which characterizes good health.

What if you could learn to access this subtle energetic layer to facilitate your own health and well-being on a daily basis? What if doing this could release layers of tension that have accumulated in your energy body over the years, dragging down your energy, mood, health, and vitality?

That is the promise of energy meditation.

Beat Depression

How to Beat Winter Blues With Exercise

Shoveling is one way how to beat winter blues with exerciseWhenever it snows my skier friends get all excited. But some people, like me, just get the winter weather blues. We all know exercise helps beat depression, but having to dig your car out in a blizzard is sure a handy excuse to ignore the gym, and curl up on the couch instead.

Sometimes winter depression is brought on by fewer hours of daylight. But winter blues can also result from feeling worn out by the repeated assaults of ice, snow, and bitter cold. Add the anxiety of hazardous driving conditions, and it is easy to feel undone by Mother Nature’s wrath.

Winter blues may mean you need a change in attitude.

I used to spend Christmas with friends who lived out in the country in upstate New York. There would be a well over a foot of snow outside, but after dinner my irrepressible hostess would announce, “let’s all go cross country skiing!” In the cold. In the dark. But it was fun because she loved it so, and none of us could help but share in her enthusiasm.

Because of my friend, I know that our attitudes about winter can be changed, and the more we make it fun, the less stressful it will be. It’s not as easy if you don’t have a snow loving buddy, but braving the elements can actually make you feel better. You get fresh air, sunlight, and a double shot of aerobic exercise just trying to make it to the curb. Plus winning over the elements can boost your confidence about what you achieve if you want to.

To get the most of winter exercise, keep these tips in mind:

Find cold weather clothes that make you happy. For me, silk long johns and cashmere socks make winter almost welcome. Splurge on brightly colored hats or gloves, water resistant outerwear and snuggly boots that are just plain fun to wear.

Be sensible about weather changes, and aware when the temperature becomes dangerously low. Frostbite weather is not the time to be brave. If the pros say to stay inside, take their advice, and do some yoga instead.

Get walking with traction grips. If walking is your exercise of choice, slippery roads and sidewalks can make you feel trapped inside. But you can beat winter walking blues with traction grips. These are inexpensive, stretchy, wire loop grippy things that you slip over the soles of your shoes or boots, which cut into ice enough to let you walk more securely. Different brands can be found at outdoor outfitters and sporting goods stores, as well as online, and can make walking in winter safer and more enjoyable.

Step up to snow shoeing. Once thought of only for artic explorers and people who use dog-sleds as regular transportation, snow shoes can turn your entire yard into an aerobic workout path. One of the hassles of walking in deep snow is what an effort it is to get anywhere, an effort that can make you feel defeated before you start. Snow shoes let you skim across the top of the snow, are less expensive than skis, and give you a fun activity you can share with your family.

Cross country skiing: a total body workout that gets you places. If you live in the flatlands, or have no desire to ski downhill, cross country skiing could be for you. It’s a terrific total body workout, warming you up all over, getting your heart pumping and helping blues busting oxygen flow to your brain. It is hard to feel depressed when you are invigorated and sailing along in the sunshine, and if you’ve ever seen news stories of people skiing down the streets where no cars can pass, you need never have cabin fever again.

Shovel your neighbor’s sidewalk. What a great way to lend a hand to someone who may need help, and beat depression at the same time. We can pay a gym for weights to lift, but nature provides plenty of lifting to do, which can give us the satisfaction of doing something worthwhile. Be sure you heart is healthy before you do too much heavy shoveling, and use a bent handle shovel to protect your back.

Keep some exercise videos at hand. If you have any floor space at all, there will be an exercise video that fits it. Yoga, tai chi, hand weights or stretchy cords, the options are endless. If people live under you, or your walls shake, floor routines can still get your blood pumping and warm you up on cold days. Some workouts are even available for online streaming, so it doesn’t matter what you do, just do something. Your body and your mood will thank you.

I’ll never be a fan of winter, but I do know that letting it get me down gets me nowhere. Not every cold day may be a fun one, but the more we beat winter blues with exercise, the stronger we will be to beat the bad weather when we need to.
