Tai Chi is Meditation in Motion

Tai Chi Water

If you are looking for internal peace, the ancient Chinese practice of tai chi may be the answer. Whether you are feeling stress from everyday life or have physical issues such as high blood pressure, the calm and relaxed movements of tai chi have been producing calmer minds for over 700 years.

I have found tai chi a great way to stay fit, mentally and physically. Tai chi forces you to focus and be conscious of every movement of your body and every breath you take.  It totally takes your mind off any stressful thoughts you may normally have related to work, family or other normal everyday issues.  For a brief period of the day you are immersed in this calming technique.  After you have finished your tai chi session the relaxing effects of tai chi typically stay with you the rest of the day.

I highly recommend looking into tai chi. It does not take any special skills or athletic ability.  Anybody can join a tai chi group at any age.  Within a very short time you will find yourself enjoying the mindful engagement in fluid motions that relax your mind and body.   You will find tai chi groups in libraries, hospital health centers, senior centers, community centers and private organizations.  I practice tai chi in a park with a group of friends.  We add Chinese music to our tai chi sessions to add to the enjoyment.

Baby Clothes Featuring Chinese Zodiac Cartoons

From infant’s body suits and t-shirts to baby coveralls, a new line of basic baby clothes is now available online at zodiacals.com and in selected King Kullen supermarkets on Long Island, NY.  A complete list of participating supermarkets is available at the zodiacals.com website.Miss Piggy 4X4.png - 6-17-17

Zodiacals Baby clothes put a new twist on basic clothing for infants. Every baby needs a soft t-shirt, body suit or coverall to sleep in. The new Zodiacals garments are not only ultra-soft to keep baby cozy, the adorable animals add a special meaning to wearing the garment.

Each Zodiacals garment features a cartoon character created by award winning Chinese American artist Tiffany Chang. The characters are based on 2,000 years of Chinese legend and each animal has a special meaning.  Monkeys, for example, tend to be clever and curious.  Roosters tend to be trustworthy, sharp and sociable.  Goats tend to be sensitive, sweet and charming.  Mothers can select cartoon characters that match their baby’s personality.

The new Zodiacals baby clothes are available in sizes from three to twenty four months. The short-sleeve t-shirts are made with 100% cotton so that they feel soft on the baby’s skin yet resist the wear and tear a growing child will put on clothes.  The bodysuits feature a lap-shoulder neckline so you can get the baby dressed and undressed with ease.  The 100% cotton coveralls will be your go-to footed coveralls throughout the year.
