Walk in Place Exercises

I'm so glad you've decided to join me again for today's Health Talk post. Walking, for me, is the least boring of all exercises. As I said in a previous post, I walk from one end of the house to the other and back several times a day. If it's a nice day, I enjoy a powerwalk outside. But it's also fun to walk in place. That's probably the easiest way for me to walk, because as I've also mentioned, I sit most of the time to craft, write, transcribe, etc. I take frequent breaks, so walking in place is one way I will spend those breaks.

Today, Coach Natasha is showing us a few of her fancy moves in this 10-minute video. I'll admit that I can't mimic a couple of the moves. So, for those, I just keep my legs moving, either marching in place or walking from side to side or forward and backward.

As with all the other Health Talk videos that I show you, there are longer videos you can exercise to as you and your doctor feel you're able to do more. The great thing about walking in place is you can do it almost anywhere you have a few square feet available. AND it can be done outside as well as inside. No more rainy-day or it's-too-cold or it's-too-hot or there's-no-place-to-walk excuses. Walk in place!

Have a blessed and healthy day,

Worry is Waste

How many moments do we waste worrying about things we aren't able to control? I know I've had my fair share of moments like that. I won't say that I never worry anymore. Human nature is to worry. But I worry much less these days, because I trust God to take care of all my needs and problems. According to my NLT study Bible, worrying leads to immobilization, but concern leads us to action. I like that they have shown me the difference between worry and concern. Let's, now, read today's Scripture about the impacts of worry and the effects of trusting God from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 6:25-34 says, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your

Buying and Care Tips for Outdoor Plants

These first  2 tips came to mind when I was buying 4 new outdoor deck plants this past week at Lowe's. First of all, at least at the Lowe's I visited, all of their hanging basket flowers were badly wilted and turning brown. I'll have to say, that was a first. All of their plants usually look amazing. I'm not sure if it's because of all the local rainfall, and maybe they haven't been watering them regularly, and that was why they looked so shabby. Because typically, someone would be watering the flowers at about the time we arrived; always have been in the past, and no one was doing that on the day we visited earlier this week. Or maybe they've let Mother Nature overwater them. I don't know. Regardless of the reason, I passed on buying hanging basket flowers. I'm the type of person who really needs to start with healthy flowers. Therefore, I brought home 4 in regular pots, because they all looked healthy. So, my first tip is to pay attention to the

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u
