Today is the winter solstice. The shortest day of the year. A time of maximum yin energy yet it's surprisingly warm.
It's a good time to celebrate the stillness of winter with meditation or contemplation.
From now on the days will get longer by about 15 minutes a week. Nature starts to come back to life, renewal, regrowth and a gradual expansion into summer.

Tai chi and kung fu teach you to adapt fluidly to change. Many people resist change and they suffer because of it. They are too tight in their body which leads to rigidity in their thinking.
We learn instead to become softer and more malleable. To recognise that change is happening all the time.

Nothing ever stays the same nor should it. It is those who can adapt to change who thrive the most. Those who don't can never be happy. They will become more and more tense as they resist change.

Soften your breath and your body and embrace change whenever you can.

Come along to one of our friendly classes and see for yourself.

When talking to someone in person or online are you benefitting them or belittling them?
So many suffer with negative self-talk so pointing out their good points can be very powerful. It's even more powerful if you do it to yourself. You may be amazed at how others respond when you treat them nicely.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses and we are all valuable, worthwhile people.
Value yourself. Value others.

Strange but true.
All of the seven countries in the world that eat the most saturated fat have got less heart disease than all of the seven countries in the world that eat the most.
Think about that.
Saturated fat is actually good for you. It doesn't clog your arteries and certainly doesn't make you fat. You need it. You have evolved to eat it. All low fat products are a con. They replace healthy fat with unhealthy sugars and chemicals that your body doesn't recognise as food. Stop eating them. Stick to full fat and be healthier, happier and slimmer.
