How To Maintain Your Stamina As A Warrior

Already, those of us who have disagreements with the Party of No are weary. There are so many issues that enrage us that the level of vigilance can be harmful to our well being. We must pace ourselves and take good care of our bodies and minds in order to be real warriors.

  • Exercise
  • Eat well
  • Get enough sleep
  • Take a break from the news
  • Take a weekly break from social media
  • Pray
  • Meditate more
  • Try yoga

On a day when the last of the protesters are being warned away from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's epic standoff with the Dakota Access oil pipeline it seems appropriate to share the advice on how to be a true warrior according to Chief Sitting Bull, a Hunkpapa Lakota holy man:

"For us, warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children the future of humanity."

My personal suggestion is to find a way to volunteer on a one to one basis with another human being besides being involved in protests. It does your heart good. I am a CASA; a court appointed special advocate with an organization called Voices for Children. As a volunteer you are trained to work with children of all ages who are in the foster care system. Your main function is to write regular reports for the judge assigned your child's case. It is an up close and personal way to do a little good in this world. There are hundreds of other opportunities that can enrich your life in unexpected ways. Make time for others as a way to renew your social justice resolve.
