To honor the work that Charities do, in 2012 the United Nations decided to nominate an annual International Day of Charity as an official day of recognition and celebration.
The reason the date was chosen is because it is the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
Here in Cumberland County we have dozens of important charities that rely on citizens for ongoing service to our community.
To help one of those agencies that serve children you are cordially invited to join Nature’s Way Massage in the

Have you been wanting to try yoga but felt intimidated by large classes of fit, young, experienced yogis? YOUR TIME HAS COME.
No matter what your age, fitness level or experience, we have your back for beginning a new journey with yoga.
The benefits of yoga are recognized by the American Osteopathic Association. Below is an excerpt from the Association’s website.
“As an osteopathic physician, I focus a lot of my efforts on preventive medicine and practices, and in the body’s ability to heal itself,” says Dr. Nevins. “Yoga is a great tool for staying healthy because it is based on similar principles.”
“The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome,” explains Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.”
Other physical benefits of yoga include:
- Increased flexibility
Increased muscle strength and tone
Improved respiration, energy and vitality
Maintaining a balanced metabolism
Cardio and circulatory health
Improved athletic performance
Protection from injury
Aside from the physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which is known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. “Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate,” says Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life.”
Yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing can help improve a person’s mental well-being. “Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration,” says Dr. Nevins. Body- and self-awareness are particularly beneficial, she adds, “because they can help with early detection of physical problems and allow for early preventive action.”

One of my favorite singers is Van Morrison. This time of year I keep hearing the lyric, “I can get through February”
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.
Don’t brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the “winter blues” or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.
I confess I struggle every February with SAD. Over the years I have developed a little formula that ensures that “I can get through February”.
If I can’t get to Florida I Get in front of as many fireplaces I can find. A tanning bed is good but age and quality of the equipment is important and remember “less is more”
This is a perfect time to start yoga or that fitness program that you have been planning for another day. There are seven days in and someday isn’t one of them. We have teamed up with Well by Nature to stare a Yoga and Fitness program.
Plan an event, get with friends, build a Dream Board.
Book a vacation, write down all your Blessings, start a journal, buy a very large book and don’t stop until you’ve read it, take music or art lessons. Book a Massage!
This year was a little worse than most so I went to my Doctor and she did a blood test that revealed that I was vitamin deficient so she prescribed some special vitamins. Maybe you should check with your Doctor just in case. – Terry Owens
