Welcome to the 127th edition of the Carnival of Healing
We’ve got an interesting carnival for you this week with lots of submissions, covering topics from what to eat when you’re expecting to coping with the death of a loved one and a whole lot of other interesting topics. For your convenience the carnival is broken into three sections: fitness, fatness and food; surgery and other medical woes; and coping and comforting. If you haven’t read last week’s carnival, you can find it at Natural Pain Relief. So, without further ado, here’s the carnival.
Fitness, Fatness and Food
Kavit over at Wellness Junction gives you 5 ways to quit eating junk food. Guess I have no excuse now.
Under the heading of is this caveat really necessary comes Alfa King‘s advice to swallow your saliva while chewing veggies. Spitting is making a comeback and nobody told me?
To keep the Bridezilla in you at bay, Neelakantha offers the pre-wedding day health guide. Good advice to stay healthy all the time if you ask me.
If they can always see you sweat, James Chambers offers all sorts of information and advice at Hyperhidrosis. Take your pick on which post your prefer. I couldn’t decide.
Mike Remer talks about the challenge of holidays and cold weather on our dietary habits at My Path to Fitness blog. My favorite part is where he compares us hibernating in our homes to our ursine friends:
The major difference between bear hibernating and human hibernating is that the bears stop eating and we eat more.
Ain’t that the truth!
Surgery and other medical woes:
Coping and Comforting:
As a lifestyle mentor and professional coach, I get a real kick out of watching people understand that they have the power to change. It’s like the proverbial light bulb going off and someone saying, “Wow! I can have anything I want!”
Lorraine Cohen practices “giving herself an ‘A'” over at Powerfull Living. As an educator I can vouch for the transformative power of treating each student as an individual in need of discovery. It’s like finding the sculpture hidden in the block of wood. When it happens, it’s marvelous.
Anna Farmery at Widow’s Quest writes about seeking reconcilliation not resolution when dealing with the death of a loved one–an interesting take that is worth a look. She also tackles the art of forgiveness in a meaningful way.
James de Lelys of healingthroughwords uses allegory to make his point and to plug his new book.
Decisions needn’t be a chore. In fact, it’s a profound privilege to be able to make decisions for yourself. Consider the alternative. Would you rather have someone else make your decisions for you? The ability to make your own decisions is a good definition of freedom.
And I’ve decided to end the Carnival here.
