LEARN TO RELAX.
It Is strange how few people really
know how to relax, to lot the l ed hold
thein Instead of vainly trying to hold
up the bed, says Health Culture. Give
way, let the nerves and muscles rest.
Do not anticipate your journey's end
of waste nerve force by mentally goiua,
ahead and fussing because o? delay.
Do not mentally jjet out and push the
car along because you do not reach
your destination in a moment. Relax,
drop the subject from your mind, and
you will reach your objective point
far loss worn In mind and body than
If you fussed and fumed.
You can add years to your life by
pimply breathing. It is want of
thought, want of time, want of knowl
edge that 3s at fault.
Mrs. Crowning says: "He lives most
life who breathes most air." Learn to
breathe properly and you will always
bo self-possessed. Learn to relax and
you will never bo nervous and fussy
and make others around you nervous.
Do not catch the breath with a gasp,
do not fuss with this or that little
thing. Relax and gain that repose of
manner that places you and those
around you at ease. Few people can
"let go." Only one person out of twen
ty can really drop the arm. Raise it to
its full length above the head and see
If you can let it fall, commencing with
the finger tips and so on down in per
fect rhythm. Nineteen out of twenty
. will put it slowly down. This is not
relaxing. Let it drop, and drop heavy,
too. It will not come off. The muscles
of the neck are seldom used freely. It
, is surprising how much force we use
;o hold our heads on. We do not find
ahls out until we try to let them go.
Yawning is not polite, but it is health
ful. Why? Because if given full ex
pression it stretches and vitalizes all
the muscles of the body, and then re
laxes thorn, quickening the blood sup
ply and giving it free play.
ONE THEORY OF LIFE.
It is well for a man to realize that
admiration and indulgence and ca
resses do not satisfy a woman who.
if she is able, desires to share his
whole life, or if she can only give her
sympathy seeks to know what are his
real interests. It is well for a woman
to fully comprehend that there are
