Happy Hump Day!
Half way through the week, Dan and I are counting down to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 9 days.
It’s mid-week, a lot of us have been through a point in life where everything seems to have reached a slump where nothing is meaningful anymore.
If you’re going through something similar, Dan and my blog will help you to find the will to live your life to its fullest again!
According to a study, you can find the meaning in your life by assessing three dimensions of your life.
Today Dan and I will be posting on the second one, coherence.
This involves how events in your life fit together.
It is assumed that life is full of surprises and all the things that happen in your life did not happen by chance.
Coherence suggests that you should have faith that in time, you will make sense of everything that has happened in your past.
SEPTEMBER – 14th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about September that’s so significant during this month?
National Food Is Medicine Day – September 14, 2022
Health and food organizations use this day to raise awareness about the barriers to good food in the U.S.
The campaign points out that many low-income families always have to deal with obstacles that make it difficult for them to get the healthy foods they need.
The goal of bringing these challenges to the forefront on National Food is Medicine Day is to generate enough buzz to encourage government and private sector entities to collaborate on developing solutions that make it simpler for more people to get healthy food.
Malnutrition is a threat that is getting worse quickly.
It is a global problem on the same level as poverty and climate change.
The World Committee on Food Security has said, malnutrition in all its forms; including hunger,
lack of micronutrients, overweight, and obesity, is a major problem not only in developing countries but also in developed countries.
Malnutrition includes everything from starvation to being overweight.
The main causes of the global burden of disease today are poor diets and the health risks that come with them.
Diets that aren’t very good either don’t have enough of certain vitamins, minerals, and fiber, or they have too many calories, saturated fats, salt, and sugar.
In 2010, 10% of the world’s disease burden was caused by unhealthy eating and lack of exercise (measured as the number of years lost due to ill health, disability, or early death).
By 2015, six of the top 11 global risk factors, such as being undernourished, having a high body mass index (B.M.I.), and having high cholesterol, were related to diet.
Obesity is usually linked to eating too much, but it can also be caused by not getting enough of certain nutrients.
Between 1990 and 2010, the number of adults in sub-Saharan Africa with a high B.M.I. tripled.
Countries in the Pacific, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Central America all have very high rates of overweight and obese adults.
So, all countries around the world need to take action to deal with undernutrition, lack of micronutrients, and overweight and obesity at the same time.
On National Food is Medicine Day, the Food Equality Initiative encourages people to join the movement by giving money to groups that help people get access to healthy food.
Subsidizing the extra costs of gluten-free food helps bring down medical costs, lowers the risk of food-related illnesses, and makes it easier for low-income families to eat healthy on a budget.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
FOR A MOMENT I FELT JOYFUL, AND THEN I FELT CMPLETELY EXHAUSTED.
Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY; TASTE-
TASTES OF HISTORY AND TRADITION-
To wealthy Romans, food was a source of voluptuous excitement.
Their famous banquets were elaborately designed to tickle the senses.
And dinning was a regular all-night pastime with hosts competing to outdo each other in the complexity; daring of their dishes.
It was customary to make your guests walk in through thick layers of rose petals on the floor.
They would drape them with scented floral wreaths and have slaves wash their hands with scented water between courses.
Also waft them with incense, all as an accompaniment to the meal itself.
These dinners must have been a totally overwhelming sensory experience of flavor, texture and aroma.
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to the findings that we all have our own blueprint.
Our bodies are precious and there are many components in taking care of them.
Throughout the blog, Dan and I have related the different ways through body, heart and soul.
It’s all about power of knowledge and learning to take care of yourself, keeping your cells happy.
Our immune system is one of the key factors in keeping healthy.
It’s important to know how it works!
Continuing on the subject that has it’s pro and con and that is; Immunization.
We begin with pointing out that no proper studies have been ever done on the effects of vaccinations, and that all the available evidence shows them to be counter-productive, if not outright dangerous.
Dr Moskowitz concluded, in any case; the whole matter is clearly one of enormous complexity and illustrates only too well the hidden dangers and miscalculations that are inherent in the virtually irresistible attempt to beat nature at her own game, to eliminate a problem that cannot be eliminated, the susceptibility to disease itself.
So even in the case of the polio vaccine, which appears to be about as safe as any vaccine ever can be; the same fundamental dilemma remains.
Perhaps the day will come when we can face the consequences of deliberately feeding live polioviruses to every living infant.
And admit that we should have left well enough alone, and addressed ourselves to the art of healing the sick when we have to; rather than to the technology of eradicating the possibility of sickness, when we don't have to and can't possibly succeed in any case.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
