Health News

In the news, specifically the health news of EVERY January, all is about diet and fitness. This year, do something different- has the old diet and fitness routine worked for you? I thought not. It is always good information and good to learn if you never heard of it before (HA!) This year, dare to be daring! I am my own experiment, and always try new things out on myself first, before I suggest them to others! How about anti-diet, anti-fitness- Did you know you can be healthy using an anti-diet? Eat what you are hungry for at the time (this will change routinely, for good variety) Don't be fit, be healthy, don't sweat, but have fun- doing whatever you do for fun- walking in the sand, talking with a best buddy, swimming in the ocean, swaying to the music, etc. Be YOUR own experiment- I am my own experiment and I, alone am responsible for the way my experiment turns out!

Your Body

Body is the name of our human vehicle in which we travel through life within the constrictions of time and space. We get so attached to our bodies, and sometimes overly critical of this magnificent creation of beautiful & useful form & function.

Your Mind

"Your Mind is a terrible thing to waste" or rather, put in a better context: your mind is a precious organ to care about, take good care of and save! Sometimes, a mind is all we have... ie: Stephen Hawking.
The mind is thought to be the seat of perception, self-consciousness, thinking, believing, remembering, hoping, desiring, willing, judging, analyzing, evaluating, reasoning, etc.
Mind is the aspect of intellect and consciousness experienced as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will, and imagination, including all unconscious cognitive processes. The term is often used to refer, by implication, to the thought processes of reason. Mind manifests itself subjectively as a stream of consciousness...
Make up YOUR Mind- do it for you- do it yourself!

Train Your Brain

To train your brain, thinking is vital. Relaxation is key. Communication is required. Many think that traing the brain is like training the body- not so. The brain needs a break more than a workout, it needs peace more than action, meditation more than perspiration. PET and SPECT scans show the wear and tear on the brain, it can also show the healing that can occur as care and feeding is sustained. There is great hope for healing of the brain due to proof of brain plasticity, start training your brain now!

Inspiration vs Perspiration

All Inspiration is as simple as relaxing and breathing in. When this happens, the brain gets an influx of oxygen, so we can actually become inspired! Perspiration, on the other hand is water leaving the body through the pores, being squeezed out to be perspired. One is easy and effortless, the other is hard work! Which would you prefer?

All the New Year Resolutions Made & Broken

New Year Re-solutions are made and broken every year. Why not make this year different and get to solutions instead. Any problem that is a bother, devise a solution for it. This calls for inspiration, not list making. If you really insist on a list, get other people's opinions (who you trust) and have a brainstorming session, then make a list or diagram of various different ways to come to the same solution- then pick the easiest, fastest one- which will seem effortless to complete! Don't let the Thinktanks have all the fun- make your own Thinktank, so you can have more fun solving problems in 2011!
"Rarely do we find people who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think." ~MLK
