CONTINUING SERIES ON EMBRACING THE PRESENT MOMENT AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO? BONUS, THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING.
HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY!
How was your Thanksgiving?
As I got up yesterday, the first thought that came to my mind was; the secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?
Every, every minute?
So, that is what Dan and I actually did yesterday, we lived in the moment with all the Thanksgiving trimmings and thankful for having that experience.
Life’s not the breaths you take.
The breathing in and out.
That gets you through the day.
Isn’t what it’s all about.
Yup, just might miss the point.
Trying to win the race.
Life’s not the breaths you take
101 WAYS TO HAPPINESS; by Mike Annesley.
Since all the research of keeping healthy, leads to making your cells happy; this book will help your mental health to be happy.
That is the first step in keeping your cells happy and keeping your body healthy.
CHAPTER 1; HAPPILY, YOURSELF
If you can maintain good health and mobility your chances of being happy in later life are hugely increased. But all too many of us demote fitness to a low priority especially when work pressures impinge.
Walk 10,000 steps daily if you can.
Do cardiovascular workouts for at least 30 minutes twice a week.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator whenever you’ve a chance.
As you age, don’t overdo joint straining exercise such as running marathons may not be for you.
Accustom yourself to treat moderate exercise as a relaxing and essential part of your routine.
THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING
The most primitive of the senses, smell connects us directly with our memories, emotions, and instincts.
When we smell something, we are actually absorbing some of its molecules, making aromatherapy a form of natural medicine.
Here are some specific suggestions for balancing fragrances:
Invigorating Cooling Calming
Lemon Jasmine Lavender
Orange Mint Vanilla
Clove Lime Sandalwood
Cinnamon Rose Neroli
You can also use a process known as neuro associative conditioning to consciously link a healing response to a given smell.
First choose a favorite aroma and inhale it whenever you are feeling relaxed, calm or happy.
Your body will begin to associate pleasurable feelings with the smell.
Before long, just a hint of the fragrance will invoke your inner healing response.
How many are you out there are left-handers?
I raise my left hand! When I was growing up, I learned everything right-handed; which made everything I did the wrong way.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
Can you guess the code name for Brisbane, Australia, during World War II?
Yes, it’s LEFT.

CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
HOW SAFE IS
THROUGH PICTURES AND VIDEO"S
Dan and I grabbed an opportunity nine years ago, when we took on the adventure and moved to Mexico. Back then, we didn’t know what to expect, except that both of us were alive and ready for a change. We had been going to Tijuana for cancer treatments and knew somewhat what we were heading into. We ended up living in the center of the country however; better for travel purposes and it was nothing like what we had thought about. To this date, we are back in the states living in Virginia and what we took from Mexico was friendships, culture and understanding of their ways of life.
DAN AND SHERRY'S WITH PICTURES AND VIDEO"S
Through thousands of pictures that I took, Dan and I are showing how safe Mexico is. There is a saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’; this is so true! A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.
Today will continue the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown. Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy. A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 10; BUTTONS AND TRIGGERS
ACT; DON’T REACT.
Prior to a full-blown earthquake there are geological symptoms that act like buttons to warn that tension is escalating between the earth’s massive places of rock that float over a fluid core.
Something eventually has to give to ease the tensions, or the ground shakes uncontrollably, splits occur and anything in the way is splintered by the titanic power that explodes and implodes with incredible magnitude
The same is true of us as people.
We are conscious of only our surface lives, unable to see the powerful movements deep below our surface experiences.
Tensions and pressures can develop that must find release.
They release in healthy ways or they implode and explode uncontrollably.
Continue tomorrow –
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. In the coming week, Dan and I will be blogging the benefits of ELDER. It’s amazing what and how elder can help keep your body healthy?
Did you know that elderberry reverses signs of aging?
Well, it does!
You do not need to splurge on a plethora of anti-aging products anymore.
A small quantity of elderberry juice is important if a healthy and glowing skin is what you want.
Elderberries are an ideal source of polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins, carotenoids, phytochemicals, and flavonoids.
They act as vital building blocks for a radiant and glowing skin.
Daily intake of small quantities of elderberry juice along with a healthy and balanced diet will protect your skin cells from degenerating and keep your skin soft and smooth and give it a natural and youthful glow.
It will also make your skin firmer and prevent sagging.
You can reverse skin aging by making elderberry juice your elixir.
Therefore, you should definitely try and incorporate elderberries in your diet.
The bottom-line is that elderberries are great for your overall health and you should consume more of them.
Are you ready for some elderberry recipes?
Stay tune for one tomorrow -

Guided Meditation: Acceptance of The Present Moment
