This is way to cut and dry. I do believe parts, for example your thoughts have the power to invent your world. But I just can’t get past the idea that everything to do with spirituality is wrapped up in a nice little package with a bow.
My name is Jordan Lejuwaan and I am an efficiency addict. I am zero days sober thanks to a recent discovery, and you can be too. I love what I do so sometimes I’ll work 4-5 hours straight without stopping. As with anything, the law of diminishing returns applies after about 30 minutes. I gradually slow down and become less enthusiastic, creative and focused with the work at-hand. Epiphany #1
Memory Loss, Mnemonics, Brain power, Improve your Memory, Memory skills, Memory strategies, Memory development, Memory improvement, Memorization techniquesWhen I decided to get my memory and learning speed handled, I was not interested in some little fix or some minor improvement. I wanted to get a truly massive result, extremely fast so I could memorize any type of information, including Entire Books. Our brain has enormous potential so I knew it was possible. After realizing that nothing like this ever existed on the planet and no one can teach me this - I have created my own Memory Training. Ability to memorize entire books is something that is considered to be impossible in our society. But the truth is - anyone can do it, including you !
Alexa Fleckenstein, M.D., author of Health20 , has a few things to say about cold showers. Within the book, she writes: “Cold water can do more than just wash away sweat, dirt, old skin cells, bacteria, and viruses:
6 weeks ago, I came across an interesting discussion on High Existence about something called “The 30-Day Cold Shower Challenge” . This Challenge is exactly what you think it is: you take a cold shower every single day for 30 days. Nice & simple right? :) Intrigued, I started reading the accounts of people taking the challenge, and soon realized that they were overwhelmingly positive.
Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it. - Richard Whately Getting up early every day to start the day off right has a huge effect on the rest of our day. Unfortunately we can not always completely trust our morning selves, especially if we are lying in a warm cozy bed and there is no immediate pressure to get up (Or we can delude ourselves with pressing ‘snooze’.) To combat this, a healthy and balanced morning routine works wonders, and especially doing it for 30 days to make it a habit .
Title of the study says it all: “Providing Social Support May Be More Beneficial Than Receiving It”: This study examines the relative contributions of giving versus receiving support to longevity in a sample of older married adults. Baseline indicators of giving and receiving support were used to predict mortality status over a 5-year period in the Changing Lives of Older Couples sample. Results from logistic regression analyses indicated that mortality was significantly reduced for individuals who reported providing instrumental support to friends, relatives, and neighbors, and individuals who reported providing emotional support to their spouse. Receiving support had no effect on mortality once giving support was taken into consideration. This pattern of findings was obtained after controlling for demographic, personality, health, mental health, and marital-relationship variables.
Spend more time out in nature: Four studies examined the effects of nature on valuing intrinsic and extrinsic aspirations. Intrinsic aspirations reflected prosocial and other-focused value orientations, and extrinsic aspirations predicted self-focused value orientations.
May 20, 2008 — Religious leaders have contended for millennia that burning incense is good for the soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is good for our brains too. An international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describe how burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression. This suggests that an entirely new class of depression and anxiety drugs might be right under our noses.
i 10 Votes It’s possible that I recently learned a valuable lesson. I qualify that statement because there are certain lessons I’ve learned three hundred times in my life, and if I took an honest look, I’d have to say I need to brush up on them again. I’m even missing those bits of wisdom we were supposed to have gathered in kindergarten.
“He who depends on himself will attain the greatest happiness” ~Chinese Proverb I was at a Women’s Leadership Conference about a year ago and had an “ah-ha moment”. We were all introducing ourselves and asked to share a few things to help with the process. One question left me baffled and ultimately changed my life; “What do you do to make yourself happy?”.
Like most quarter-lifers, I have no free time. My life is a delicate balance of getting my self-imposed requisite eight hours of sleep and making it through my daily duties. In this tightrope walk of time management there really is very little wiggle room.
If “cleanliness is next to godliness” as the ancient proverb goes, what is messiness next to? I can come up with a few options, none of which are appealing. As we start a new year, it’s natural to think about cleaning and reorganizing your space—work, home, or otherwise. I have been thinking about (and avoiding) cleaning out my apartment for months—I just always found a reason not to.
Once upon a time, people performed ritual sacrifices in an attempt to avert natural disasters. Nowadays, the most popular ritual for avoiding disasters is to accumulate money. Our ancestors didn't know when to stop spilling blood, as their gods never announced: "That's enough". Modern people can't stop accumulating money for a similar reason. A conviction (or suspicion) that the world is essentially hostile probably underlies this behaviour. In which case, no amount of sacrifice or money will remove the underlying sense of insecurity.
Most of us don’t usually think of beer as an earth-friendly alternative to improving our gardens and lawns or dealing with a host of pests. However, if you can bring yourself to part ways with some of your favorite brew, or at least invest in some of the cheap stuff, you’ll be surprised by beer’s many uses. 1. Trap slugs and snails: Place dishes or jars of beer around your garden, especially in the evening. In the morning, the slimy critters that have been drawn by the beer’s aroma/fermentation will have drowned. The beer can be reused for garden pest control until it evaporates.
