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 …

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. …

How Our Dinner Menu Can Help Solve The Water Crisis

How Our Dinner Menu Can Help Solve The Water Crisis

by in Moving & Eating.

California has been in a severe drought for the last four years, which means local governments have started rationing water for showers and sprinklers, and farmers have started drilling into our groundwater supply. Surveys show that 90 percent of Californians are concerned about conserving water, but they’re not given the big picture. Long showers and lawn sprinklers are not the reason we are in a water crisis. It’s easy to follow the flow of water. If we stopped eating animals, there would be no water crisis here in California.

Even the thought of Full Time employment makes me sick, like that can even begin to Fill me. It’s insulting. That I don’t need anything else because I’m full. Am I? Who is actually full, satisfied, content? Is that all it takes-  40 hours? 40 hours every week, and we are filled, and then we decompress in a day, maybe two, we are emptied out, we lose our fullness, in bars and clubs, night life, catching up to the most recent episode, & have to do it all over again… We have to go get full all over again.

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture

by in Moving & Eating.

I preface with, this is unfortunate…. The Colossal Hoax Of Organic Agriculture originally from Forbes By Henry I. Miller and Drew L. Kershen Consumers of organic foods are getting both more and less than they bargained for. On both counts, it’s not good. Many people who pay the huge premium—often more than a hundred percent–for organic foods do so because they’re afraid of pesticides.  If that’s their rationale, they misunderstand the nuances of organic agriculture. Although it’s true that synthetic chemical pesticides are generally prohibited, there is a lengthy list of exceptions listed in the Organic Foods Production Act, while most “natural” ones are permitted. However, “organic” pesticides can be toxic.  As evolutionary …

Is There A Formula To A Good Life? What can we do to live a long life? Research is showing that our relationships matter more than we ever guessed. In fact, they might matter more than fruits and vegetables, visits to the gym and annual check-ups. According to research the answer lies in a simple yes/no question which can likely predict whether you will be alive and happy at age 80? “Is there someone in your life whom you would feel comfortable phoning at four in the morning to tell your troubles to?” Is there someone in your life whom you would feel comfortable phoning at four in the morning to tell your troubles to? …
