A New Approach

Updated on November 5, 2014

A Change For The Better

You have to get up

I know

Why did I make an appointment so early when I knew I would be up so late

Slowly moving

My top speed is just under a turtles pace

I keep splashing water on my face

Wake up

I'll be good

It's chilly out

My eyes wide open after a quick freeze

I am off to get a therapeutic massage

I haven't gone in over a year

I love massages

Every time I think of going

Something comes up

The few times I have gone

I leave all my cares behind

I feel like a million bucks

That's the closest I will come to being wealthy

Rich in mind and body

My body just melts into the sheets

I say wow that feels so good

I never want to leave

If you have never gone for a massage

You owe it to yourself to go at least once

My right arm usually hurts after being real busy at work

After a good massage all my pain goes away

So here it is an hour later

My body feels like a bowl of Jello

That has been molded into something nice

Rain tomorrow so I am off to do more yard work

My morning is going great

I would be still sleeping

A nice big stretch

I feel muscles I haven't felt before

They are all good and limbered up

I even booked another massage in three weeks

Now I have to save up

Once and awhile you have to pamper yourself

Taking care of our own bodies is so important

We put it off

We think of everything else to do

It's time to get our bodies in better shape

One small step at a time

I have to keep thinking the feeling I am feeling

I will do just fine

May your day go swell

Remember to treat your body like a temple

It will take care of you

Please stay well

      My sincere apology of not mentioning a " simple hand massage " enjoying given me by my mom, my mother-in Love (she was the best ), other family members...It is a way of life for ' average ' people as we are perhaps we are taking as granted when we need it always is is there as a daily bread ...

      You would believe that even a corner beet of drywalled wall is coming handy...

      Michael-Milec You would be surprised how a simple hand massage would make your body feel great. Taking as little as five minutes can make a world of a difference. I appreciate your advice and your support. Thank you very much for all your tips too.

      What we do with our body and how we take care of it is very important. Your suggestion of a massage is great idea, especially when we feel some mussels hurt and injured by overusing them. Those are times of reconsidering : Massage is a temporary relief, urging us to know what changes need to be done in order to avoid limiting chances for self-adjusting naturally, having in mind that body is created to recuperate on its own . In my life - long experience a physical labor, even a small massage chair is giving me sufficient relief as well as reminder to slow down... To ' stay well, '- to be well aware that our body is only we have and ultimately houses our soul and spirit in need functioning perfectly , when healthy and sound.

      Voted useful.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Massages are very good for you. You can pick up a book at the library and read about different techniques so you can massage each other. You can do a chair massage.Your back and shoulders will feel great. It can be a great way to end the day. A wonderful stress reliever. I also bought a foot massager that you plug in it feels so fantastic after a long day. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      I have never had a massage in my life. However with the time change, the dark days and black night I feel like a zombie. Perhaps I should consider getting a massage to really wake me up.
