Kim Kubsch Stress can be seen in many ways. April


was Stress Awareness Month, so what did you see when you look in the mirror? Maybe tired eyes, poor self-esteem, a sad face, weight loss or gain, angry behavior, mood swings, stiff body or tense eyes? When stress gets the best of us, how do


we deal with it to avoid further impact on our health? As a Certifi ed Tai Chi-Qi Gong Instructor, I continually witness how people enhance their overall health, improve balance, fl exibility and coordination and replace stress with serenity. Three 95 year old ladies continue to enjoy Tai Chi twice a week at Renaissance Senior Living! One major benefi t of Tai Chi and Qi is


Gong the fl owing movements that


promote a calm focused awareness, relaxation and harmony. Easy and gentle routines serve as meditation in motion and are suitable for all ages and fi tness levels. No equipment is needed and Tai Chi can be practiced anywhere, including outside in the backyard or in the comfort of one’s living room. The simple movements offer a fl owing harmony that can be done standing or sitting. Turning off the verbal mind and focusing on pleasure is a skill to incorporate into our everyday wellness routine. Another way to reduce stress is with


deep breathing to encourage relaxation whether dealing with insomnia, anxiety or chronic diseases. The peaceful, fl owing Qi Gong movements nourish and heal, while continually fl owing Tai Chi restores health, balance and harmony. “During Tai Chi, you focus on movement


and breathing. This combination creates a state of relaxation and calm. Stress, anxiety and tension should melt away as you focus on the present, and the effects may last well after you stop your Tai Chi session. The concentration required for Tai Chi forces you to live in the present moment, putting aside distressing thoughts,” according to Mayoclinic.com. Letting go of expectations is a third way


to stress less. “I take Kim’s Tai Chi class twice each week as “mental vacation.”


Convention in June, which will be held at Fort McDowell Casino and Resort on June 5-9. Here we will learn how good a job we did with all our programs. Good luck to this year’s President Carol Eib and all her offi cers and chairmen! Our last project of the year was to give


an Easter Party to our adopted second grade class at Mesa Academy for the Arts.


We brought each student an Easter pail fi lled with a chocolate bunny, plastic eggs stuffed with treats, a stuffed bunny and as usual, our friends at Sun Lakes Walgreen’s donated candy for the kids. At the previous two parties, the children


had entertained us with the Pledge of Allegiance and by singing the national anthem. This time, Americanism Chairman Christa Marshall


and Historian Sandra


Iosue showed the class how to fold the fl ag correctly as President Carol Eib read the meaning of what each fold meant. We told the story in a language that second graders could understand. To join this great bunch call our
