Healing Naturally With Water When we make an effort to live a life wholly committed to good health, it’s best to get back to basics.

Water benefits us in many different ways, and each of them is important to enable our bodies to be their best.

9 Keys to Success

9 Keys to Success

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Many a time my head failed me, my hands failed me, my feet failed me, but, thank God, my heart never failed me. Men and women succeed because they take pains to succeed. Industry and patience are almost genius; and successful people are often more distinguished for resolution and perseverance than for unusual gifts. They make determination and unity of purpose supply the place of ability. Success is the reward of those who “spurn delights and live laborious days.” We learn to do things by doing them. One of the great secrets of success is “pegging away.” No disappointment must discourage, and a run back must often be allowed, in order to take …

It’s Time To Put Technology Back In Its Place

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

It’s Time To Put Technology Back In Its Place  Most everyone seems to agree that life is getting busier, crazier, and more frantic with each passing day. We’re bombarded by more information than we know how to process—news, ads, commercials, blogs, tweets, music, pics, and more ads. Crazier still is that we have more devices, programs, and apps than ever before to make life easier. And unquestionably these new innovations help make our lives better. We can text with close friends halfway around the world and let them know we’re loving them. We can share pictures of our daughter’s birthday party with relatives thousands of miles away. We can check our …

I'm Talking About Dedication

I’m Talking About Dedication

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I’m Talking About Dedication I’m not talking about singing songs; I’m talking about the dedication of our entire beings to Life’s service and our short time on it. It goes something like this: Today I dedicate my mind to you. I want to think on things that are good, right, pure, and excellent. I want to take captive any thoughts that aren’t true. Today, I dedicate my eyes to you. I want to see others the way you see them. I want to view my circumstances through the lens of hope and faith. I want to look at life as one who is confident that you are with me. Today, …

I'll Do Whatever It Takes

Are You Willing To Do Whatever It Takes To Be Free

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I’ll Do Whatever It Takes! Sounds kind of drastic, doesn’t it? Before you starting thinking that we are advocating self-mutilation, keep in mind that this was spoken as part of a broader message about the true nature of righteousness. I’m making the point that the eternal consequences of doing harm to others and self are real enough that we should be willing to take radical, drastic action to avoid or remove anything that causes us to stumble. What action may be required in your case? If you are not stumbling, maybe nothing. If the Internet is a stumbling block for you, are you willing to get offline, or give up your smartphone for …

When You Help Others Grow, You Grow, Too

When You Help Others Grow, You Grow

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

When You Help Others Grow, You Grow It is wired so that when you help other people grow, you grow. You never grow faster than when you’re in fellowship with other believers and encouraging each other’s commitment to a full, abundant, blissful life. Keep yourself in training for this life. How do you keep training for a full life? You get a team, a spiritual partner. Have you noticed that it’s always easier to work out when you’re working with somebody else? You need someone to walk alongside side you through your journey of faith, and you need to make the same commitment to other people. Nothing affects your life more than your commitments. …

Living Large

Living Large

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Living Large “We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively!” In other words, live compassionately, graciously and all-encompassing. “Smallness” comes from within us, and not from life, has nothing to do with life. When our mind can’t comprehend the miraculous thing that is the miracle of life, allowing grace, bliss, and power to awe us, we criticize or dismiss what we don’t understand and shy away from the unknown. Rules, limits, regulations, and discipline …

Food Is A Tool; It Isn’t More Important Than That

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Food Is A Tool; It Isn’t More Important Than That Life demands nothing else of me, but that I sit there and be with god.

I Am Over Feeling Frustrated With My Choices

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I am over feeling frustrated with my choices. I am over feeling uncomfortably full to the brim with all the wrong things. I am over eating the things I know will make me feel bad.

I am not missing out on anything. I don’t have to explain my choices for wanting abundant energy, lack of chains, and perfect health. No more suffering if I can control it – I can control it!

Eating With Mindfulness

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Eating With Mindfulness …. A guest post from Ali over at Homey Improvements A healthy life doesn’t happen just because it’s something you want. It happens because you work for it. As humans, we are creatures of habit; we like to do things the same way. We get up the same way, go to work the same way and eat lunch the same way. That makes it easy for our daily habits to let us go on auto-pilot. Unfortunately, that tends to be where we fall into trouble. Eating without thinking about what you’re doing can lead to several problems, one being the tendency to overeat. While weight gain and unhealthy habits …

Oxytocin And 10 Ways To Produce More

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Oxytocin And 10 Ways To Produce More What is Oxytocin? Oxytocin performs two very important functions that allow the human race to continue. But these functions have various beneficial side effects. 1) Oxytocin is released when you have an orgasm. For men, interestingly, it is only released when you have an orgasm with someone you love. 2) Oxytocin is released when a woman is in labor. It helps the cervix stress so it’s in less pain. It’s released for women, that is. For men, when the female cervix starts to expand it’s the beginning of about nine years of agony. Basically, Oxytocin is the hormone that is there at the …

There Is More Than Enough Time

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

There Is More Than Enough Time There is never enough time is always what I hear, never enough… Or so we think. There is extra time all around us, if we are conscious about our judgment of time. The following four thoughts about time may steal your time. A change in perception can give you a better sense of time. 1. Time is money. According to researchers Sanford Devoe and Julian House, thinking of time in terms of money shapes how we view time well spent.Devoe and House asked participants to take a period of time to enjoy music or putter around the Internet for pleasure.

Dreams Don’t Work Unless I Do

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Dreams Don’t Work Unless I Do. Thank God I dream, for bigger and better, about the legacy I intend to leave behind, for perfect days and magical nights! At the same time, it’s hard not to get lost in them. Hard not to get upset with how you saw it and how it is. A fine line. Sometimes I think it would be easier to slay demons, easier to fight Goliath than chase a dream; sometimes its running without direction. All of it at times seems easier than paying student loans. Dreams are safe and instantly rewarding. Dreams create expectations. Expectations are dangerous, they need to be observed and handled …

The Laws Of Productivity

The Laws Of Productivity… Here are some laws of productivity that are consistently observed and practiced among serial idea executors:   Break the seal of hesitation. -A bias toward action is one of the most common traits. While preparing properly as you start a new project is certainly valuable, it’s also easy to lose yourself in planning (and dreaming) indefinitely. We must challenge ourselves to take action sooner rather than later. The minute that you start acting (e.g. building, writing, performing, drawing, sharing a concept with your community), you start getting valuable feedback that will help refine your original idea – and move forward with a more informed perspective. Start small. …
