How much do you stand up in a day?
Or, better question: how much of your day is spent sitting down?
It’s something I hadn’t thought much about until it was unavoidable.
In the last few years, while I’ve done a lot of running around the country, it’s been largely without standing or exercising much. When my body started to ache in weird ways, including tendonitis and a sore back that manifested out of the blue, I got deeply concerned.

It’s not that we’re victims of the emotions around us. We make conscious choices.

The energy of a space mirrors your own energy.
That energy is something we experience as vibrations or waves. Even color itself is a bunch of waves bouncing off of objects toward you.
These waves translate into emotions.
These emotions influence your life.
