A Word From Jill

It’s a great day to have a great day!  Serenity Massage is a sponsor at Easter Seals Sunnyside Regatta at 2:15 this afternoon (July 11th).  Many companies enter teams in this paddleboat race on Lake Cheerio at Camp Sunnyside.  
Happy 4th of July weekend!  We wish you a relaxing day.  -Jill
Health tip of the day:  stay hydrated!  -Jill
No one can make you feel inferior but yourself.
Are you having a summer party and want to WOW your guests?  Massage therapy not only feels great, but is great for health.  Ask about off-site chair massages.  Call 515-270-0030 for a quote.  
I alone cannot change the world. But I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. -Mother Theresa
Were you/someone you know affected by the tornadoes in the Greenfield/Fontanelle area?  We will be in Greenfield today Thursday 5/30 from 5:30-8:30 giving free chair massages at the Gathering Place.  These are free for Greenfield residents and clean-up volunteers.  We will be in Fontanelle at Summerset Estates this coming Sunday from 3-6pm. Both are about an hour’s drive SW of the Des Moines metro; I grew up in this area.  All others can give a free-will donation which will benefit the Greater Greenfield Community Foundation.If you can’t make it and want to donate, go to GGCF (greenfieldiafoundation.org) One can’t pour from an empty cup. -Jill
Living in the moment is a component of wellness.  Ask about guided meditation.  It can be done off-site – at your workplace for example – or your organization can schedule a group session at our location.  Better yet, plan it before or after a yoga session (classes naturally happen Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:30 here) with Hortencia the yoga instructor, or contact her at https://sites.google.com/view/yoga-with-hortencia/contact Nourish your body, mind and spirit! -Jill
Be grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love.  Life is so very precious and fragile.  (Credit to My Positive Outlooks Facebook page).  I am from Greenfield area originally, and have family who lost homes (and acquaintances who lost their lives) in Tuesday’s tornado. I did volunteer chair massages for family yesterday, and will be doing more in the near future for others there. I will do my best to have colleagues available for your massage therapy needs due to less availability with me.  -Jill
Being proactive vs. reactive is a great way to be when it comes to health. Plan a self-care day, and see what good things come your way!  -Jill
Stretching is underrated.  Use unplanned waiting time to stretch.  There are many youtube videos – some even as little as a few minutes – one can access from your phone. Just make sure the video is from a qualified professional – certified yoga instructor or physical therapist for example.  Notice the difference!  -Jill
Like attracts like.  Be kind, and see what kindness comes into your life!  -Jill

Some people stay at the top of others’ minds by contacting them only when they need something.
Some people attract others by letting their inner beauty and kindness shine, kind of like a positive people magnet.
