Sanskrit Salutation To The Dawn

Listen to the salutation to the dawn,
Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life,
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence.
The bliss of growth, the splendor of beauty,
For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well spent makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day.
Such is the salutation to the dawn.

Walk, Strength Training and Balance

As a certified athletic trainer I have trained the 60+ population. There are three keys to help you maintain your health and avoid unexpected fall: walking, strength training and balance training. A committment to an active life can improve the quality of your life.

Seek a balanced Life. There are five focus areas of health:

  1. Social Needs: Communication, family, others´ perceptions of us, relationships, status, and acceptance-anything to do with others.
  2. Physical needs: Nutrition, hygiene, exercise, physical fitness, sleep, sex, shelter, stress management-anything to do with the physical body.
  3. Emotional needs: Intimacy, love, acceptance, touch-anything to do with feelings and the heart.
  4. Spiritual needs: Values, directions, belief, sacrifice, faith, relationships with the universe, goals, personal perceptions, self worth-anything to do with where you are and where you are going.
  5. Intellectual needs: Competition, cooperation, challenge, learning, thoughts-anything to do with your brain and thinking

Develop a personal relationship with these areas to balance your life. One of the key elements to a balancing act is music. It has been said, "Music in any form is one of the greatest ways in which we can give to ourselves as well as allowing us to give vent to emotions in a positive way."
