Qigong - Getting Started

One of the most common things that I hear from people about starting a new wellness practice such as qigong is, "I'm going to start when _____ because then I'll have more time."

The intention is great, but it has been my experience that if you wait for that "perfect time," it isn't going to happen. There will never be a shortage of things to do or reasons you have no time to take care of yourself.

The truth is, there will never be a better time than right now.

So often we forego caring for our own health because of the needs of others. But to be a great caregiver for someone else, you need to be a great caregiver for yourself.

I like to use as an example something I have noticed with children. Children can be amazing teachers for us if we're wise enough to realize all they have to offer. When we tell our children one thing, but do another, thay are always adept enough to learrn more from our actions than from our words.

You give a great gift for yourself and those who love you when you respect yourself enough to nurture you. How better to show your loved ones to respect themselves?

Spring Forest Qigong has given me an amazing way to nurture my body, mind, and spirit. I feel great, have lots of energy, and I've rediscovered the playful spirit I though I left behind long ago.

I know that I have more to give to people in my life because I know that my own needs are met.

I wish you all great health and happiness in whatever you do.

Many Blessings!
