The Practice of Pause

In the most recent issue of Newsweek magazine, Robert J. Samuelson wrote a column titled The Sad Fate of the Comma.

He says:

I have always liked commas, but I seem to be in a shrinking minority. The comma is in retreat, though it is not yet extinct. In text messages and e-mails, commas appear infrequently, and then often by accident (someone hits the wrong key). Even on the printed page, commas are dwindling. Many standard uses from my childhood (after, for example, an introductory prepositional phrase) have become optional or, worse, have been ditched. If all this involved only grammar, I might let it lie. But the comma’s sad fate is, I think, a metaphor for something larger: how we deal with the frantic, can’t-wait-a-minute nature of modern life. The comma is, after all, a small sign that flashes PAUSE. It tells the reader to slow down, think a bit, and then move on. We don’t have time for that. No pauses allowed.

My husband came home from work a few hours after I read the article and mentioned that a yoga instructor had visited his office as part of their Wellness Program.

“Did you learn anything?” I asked.

He said he learned that if people took ten minutes out of their day to sit quietly and relax, scientific studies show stress levels reduce drastically. In other words, he learned it’s important to pause.

He had a worksheet from the Mind/Body Medical Institute. Click here for the full set of instructions, but in a nutshell it simply says to sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and breathe (the easy part), as you clear your mind of active thoughts (the hard part).

Summers seems like an especially good time to incorporate the practice of pause because schedules can get so busy. You might be thinking: “That’s precisely the problem. I’m so busy I don’t have time to relax for 10 minutes.” But as the yoga instructor who visited my husband’s office mentions on her website, pausing will calm you down and clear your mind for better decision-making, ultimately giving you much more time.     Š

Get Better Savings by Buying Your Nolvadex Online

Nolvadex is a treatment drug that is highly popular amongst middle-aged women.  This is because this is the drug that is very useful as well as effective when it comes to treating or preventing the development of breast cancer.  The reason that this drug is very effective when it comes to the treatment of such is that the drug itself has been made particularly to bind with estrogen receptors, thus prevent the estrogen activated growth of the cancer.  Once the drug is absorbed by your body via metabolic processes, the drug’s mechanism of action as selective estrogen receptor modulator will be binding itself towards estrogen receptors and preventing estrogen hormones from binding with the receptors.  Breast cancer actually needs estrogen for growth.  However, if the levels of estrogen are being limited, in essence, you will be able to stop the cancer from growing.

Nolvadex actually has other uses aside from just solely treating breast cancer.  In fact, Nolvadex can be used for treating medical conditions such as angiogenesis, bipolar disorder, infertility problems, estrogen-related premature puberty, and gynecomastia.  Nevertheless, for more than three decades, Nolvadex has been used mostly for the treatment or prevention of female breast cancer.  If you are looking to buy this anti-estrogenic drug, then you will be glad to know that you can buy Nolvadex online.

As mentioned earlier, it is more economical to get your Nolvadex online.  However, if you buy Nolvadex online, it will take around several days before you are able to get your first dosage of the drug.  If you require to take the drug immediately, the best thing to do is to first purchase your doses of Nolvadex online and get the estimate on when your Nolvadex online purchase will be delivered to you.  This will provide you with a rough estimate on how much Nolvadex pills you will need to purchase from your local drugstore while waiting for the package of your Nolvadex online purchase.

Welcome, Loved One

A few weeks ago I was in Tulum, Mexico for a week of yoga, meditation and silent beach walks. I arrived at night after everyone else had gone to sleep. Inside my cabana two flickering candles revealed a comfy bed draped in mosquito netting with a welcome card on the pillow. I picked up the card and read what was written. Holding it next to my heart I smiled. Then I crawled under the covers and drifted off to sleep.

The next morning as I was journaling in my notebook, I thought about the card and scribbled down what it had said: You are worth loving. I had a funny feeling that what I wrote wasn’t quite right, so I went back to my cabana to double-check. Sure enough, I had misquoted the card. It actually read: I am worth loving.

Notice the difference?

Why is it so easy to believe others are worth loving, but so hard to believe it about ourselves? Why is it difficult to say? To know? To live?

This isn’t a narcissistic kind of love; rather, it’s a “love your neighbor as yourself” kind of love. Eating mindfully, treating ourselves with kindness, practicing yoga — these are ways we can love ourselves by being stewards of our body and soul.

I began practicing yoga years ago after watching my then-boyfriend (now husband) ease into a backbend with grace. To this day I still can’t do that, but it doesn’t matter because self-love is about accepting myself for who I am, not what I can achieve. I will be blogging about yoga twice a week for the Eat Wasa Feel Good team (my partner, Zandria, introduced herself yesterday as the vegan blogger).

So here’s a warm welcome to you, loved one, and an invitation to join me on this journey. Feel free to post comments, questions or ideas. You can also e-mail me or visit my personal blog, Roughly Speaking.

Oh, by the way, my name is Jenny. And I am worth loving.
