www.raptitude There’s a difference between knowing something and living as if it were true. At the end of 2013, these truths are all lingering on that awkward threshold, for me anyway. 1) The sooner you do something, the more of your life you get to spend with that thing done — even though it takes less effort (or at least no more) than it will later. It’s the ultimate sure-thing investment and I pass it up all the time. 2) I never regret working out. 3) Whenever I’m playing with my phone I am only shortening my life. 4) Nothing makes me more productive and in-the-moment than a clean house. 5) Minute-for-minute, nothing I do is more rewarding than meditation. 6) Creative work is something that can be done at any time. 7) Acting the way you want to feel usually works. 8) Ninety-five per cent of my happiness comes from having a home, a functioning body and something to eat. 9) Our minds are geared to manage much less than we typically end up managing. Goodbye 2013, you were great. Photo by David Cain

SimplyNoise -- The Best Free White Noise Generator on the Internet. www.boreddaddy It is not often that Oprah Winfrey is lost for words! Yet this was exactly what happened when she asked the Dalai Lama a very pertinent question, which is recounted in the book by Victor Chan entitled The Wisdom of Forgiveness. She asked him, “Have you ever had to forgive yourself for something?” His Holiness replied, “My attitude towards mosquitoes is not very favorable, not very peaceful. Oprah was astounded that there was nothing else to be forgiven for in a life spanning 78 years. 1. “The topic of compassion is not at all religious business; it is important to know it is human business, it is a question of human survival.”- Dalai Lama Research now shows that when you are compassionate, you experience a similar feeling of pleasure as when you have sex, good food or a relaxing holiday. You can show compassion by understanding the person’s feelings and emotions. 2. “This is my simple religion. 3. “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” – Dalai Lama 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. comments

SimplyRain - The Best Free Rain Generator on the Internet. www.highexistence Social situations are among the most important in our lives. Yet, there is a huge chance that you are oblivious to the plethora of unwritten social rules that structure everybody’s behaviour. Failing to comply to these cultural imprints can cause irreversible damage. Just following them blindly will not get you ahead. Hacking them, however, will give you the best results possible. 1) Assume comfort in any interaction. Our brain is an incredibly complicated instrument. In most of our social interactions, we find it difficult to feel comfortable among strangers because our brain tries to protect us from exposure. This however isn’t helping us when trying to be social and meet new people, is it? This is why assuming comfort is so powerful. 2) Pay attention to people’s feet when you are approaching them. Interrupting people when they are in the middle of an important conversation is one of the most annoying things to do. If they turn both torso and feet, it means you are welcome. Admit it.

free buddhist audio : Seven body language tricks to make anyone instantly like you There's no question that body language is important. And, according to Leil Lowndes in her book "How To Talk To Anyone," you can capture - and hold - anyone's attention without even saying a word. We've selected the best body language techniques from the book and shared them below: The Flooding Smile "Don't flash an immediate smile when you greet someone," says Lowndes. Instead, pause and look at the other person's face for a second, and then let a "big, warm, responsive smile flood over your face and overflow into your eyes." Even though the delay is less than a second, it will convince people your smile is sincere and personalized for them. Sticky Eyes "Pretend your eyes are glued to your conversation partner's with sticky warm taffy," Lowndes advises. You can also try counting your conversation partner's blinks. Epoxy Eyes In a group of people, you should watch the person you are interested in, no matter who else is talking. The Big-Baby Pivot Limit the Fidget Hang By Your Teeth

The Daily Bandha The sleeping habits of the rich, the powerful, and the genius This piece was written by Hannah Earnshaw, a PhD student at Durham University in the UK, and was originally published by The Conversation. I have always been in awe of the night sky, trying to comprehend the vastness of space and the countless wonders it contains. But I have always felt a certain dissatisfaction with only being able to see it at a distance. One day I imagine that humanity will be able to visit other planets in the Solar System, and venture even further to other stars, but this has always seemed very far away. Mars is, in a way, the perfect stepping stone into the rest of the universe. Science, but more than science As a PhD student carrying out astronomical scientific research, I’m naturally drawn to the research possibilities on the surface of Mars. Being able to study the geology of Mars up close would be the ultimate research opportunity, answering questions about the history of the planet and the Solar System. Life on the Martian range. The journey of a lifetime

Buddhist Geeks by Personal Life Media on Apple Podcasts untitled 29 ways to read a person through his eyes How much would you pay to be able to read another person's mind? People say that the eyes are a "window to the soul" - that they can tell us much about a person just by gazing into them. No, it's not 100 percent accurate, and it's not magic. When a person looks upwards they are often thinking. Eye looking up but head down Head lowered and eyes looking back up at the other person is a coy and suggestive action as it combines the head down of submission with eye contact of attraction. Looking at a person can be an act of power and domination. Eyes down, looking left Looking down and to the left can indicate that they are talking to themselves . Much of our field of vision is in the horizontal plane, so when a person looks sideways, they are either looking away from what is in front of them or looking towards something that has taken their interest. Looking at something shows an interest in it. Communicating with the gaze Looking away when caught?
