CHANGE AND YOUR THINKING
by Rev. Dr. Arthur Chang
 
All humans seem to share a strong tendency to change their lives for the better. Change is the great law of life. Because change is constant, no previous response to our circumstance can sustain a desirable condition indefinitely. Change, like the ocean, is constantly lapping at the shore of our resolve. No territorial line drawn in the sand of our perception is safe from the breech of the invasive and unrelenting waves of change. Throughout our lives, if we are wise, we will discover change is no enemy to an open, flexible mind—that we can meet change with resilience on its own terms, even as it presents itself as one of the five unavoidable givens of life: “Everything changes and ends.”
 
The ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, observes, “If someone wishes for good health, one must first ask oneself if he is ready to do away with what causes his illness. Only then is it possible to help him.” Hippocrates’ observation for good health is an appropriate guiding principle for dealing with change. After all, change is process and the whole universe is in a coordinated dance of process. The image of the Hindu gods, Brahma, the creator, and Shiva, the destroyer, are at play, while Vishnu, the sustainer, keeps things going, in spite of them. Process theology speaks of things becoming and perishing. Brahma and Shiva represent these forces respectively.
 
Every entity must respond to the Law of Process. Hippocrates, aware of this process, said, “Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against Nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illnesses will suddenly appear.” Our inattention to our poor eating and exercise habits are often causes for high blood pressure or diabetes. Indeed, “they do not come upon us out of the blue.”
 
To change our thinking for changing our lives is to use the miraculous tool of thought, or more precisely—consciousness. An embodied thought that can lead to negative results may also do just the opposite when we make the necessary change. If we are aware of a negative tendency in our process of navigating the flowing stream of change, then, by taking responsibility for our consciousness, we can guide this mental stream into a positive flow. Changing our lives for the better means finding positive ways for using the principle governing behavior.
 
As Hippocrates observed, we must think about what we need to give up. We must bring into harmony the archetypal forces of Shiva, the destroyer, and Brahma, the creative force within and around us. The old consciousness that gave rise to bad habits must be destroyed by a positive use of creative laws if we are to produce and sustain (like Vishnu) the life we desire. Thus, the principle: “Change your thinking, change your life,” applies.

Each one of us today is the result of the use he has made of the Law, either consciously or unconsciously. As soon as we realize this we shall see that what we are now (or what we now have and experience) is the result of what we have thought; and the answer to what we shall be is contained in what we are now thinking, FOR WE CAN CHANGE OUR THINKING!

Exercise: 7 benefits of regular
physical activity
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Want to feel better, have more energy and even add years to your life? Just exercise.
The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. Everyone benefits from exercise, regardless of age, sex or physical ability.
Need more convincing to get moving? Check out these seven ways that exercise can lead to a happier, healthier you.
1. Exercise controls weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn.
Regular trips to the gym are great, but don't worry if you can't find a large chunk of time to exercise every day. Any amount of activity is better than none at all. To reap the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your household chores. Consistency is key.
2. Exercise combats health conditions and diseases
Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight is, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol, and it decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Regular exercise helps prevent or manage many health problems and concerns, including:
·        Stroke
·        Metabolic syndrome
·        High blood pressure
·        Type 2 diabetes
·        Depression
·        Anxiety
·        Many types of cancer
·        Arthritis
·        Falls
It can also help improve cognitive function and helps lower the risk of death from all causes.
3. Exercise improves mood
Need an emotional lift? Or need to destress after a stressful day? A gym session or brisk walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and less anxious.
You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
4. Exercise boosts energy
Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance.
Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily chores.
5. Exercise promotes better sleep
Struggling to snooze? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster, get better sleep and deepen your sleep. Just don't exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to go to sleep.
6. Exercise puts the spark back into your sex life
Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can improve energy levels and increase your confidence about your physical appearance, which may boost your sex life.
But there's even more to it than that. Regular physical activity may enhance arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don't exercise.
7. Exercise can be fun … and social!
Exercise and physical activity can be enjoyable. They give you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting.
So take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. Bored? Try something new, or do something with friends or family.
The bottom line on exercise
Exercise and physical activity are great ways to feel better, boost your health and have fun. For most healthy adults, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends these exercise guidelines:
·        Aerobic activity. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. To provide even greater health benefit and to assist with weight loss or maintaining weight loss, at least 300 minutes a week is recommended. But even small amounts of physical activity are helpful. Being active for short periods of time throughout the day can add up to provide health benefit.
·        Strength training. Do strength training exercises for all major muscle groups at least two times a week. Aim to do a single set of each exercise using a weight or resistance level heavy enough to tire your muscles after about 12 to 15 repetitions.
Moderate aerobic exercise includes activities such as brisk walking, biking, swimming and mowing the lawn. Vigorous aerobic exercise includes activities such as running, heavy yardwork and aerobic dancing. Strength training can include use of weight machines, your own body weight, heavy bags, resistance tubing or resistance paddles in the water, or activities such as rock climbing.
If you want to lose weight, meet specific fitness goals or get even more benefits, you may need to ramp up your moderate aerobic activity even more.
Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any concerns about your fitness, haven't exercised for a long time, have chronic health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes or arthritis.
