Life gives you plenty of time to do whatever you want to do if you stay in the present moment.
STARTING A NEW SERIES ON EMBRACING THE PRESENT MOMENT AND CONTINUING ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO? BONUS, THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING.
Today turns into Tuesday!
Do You embrace the moment, the now fully?
Think right now on this moment!
Focusing on the present moment can transform our perspective on life and rid us of our worries and depression.
If you feel anxiety or depression, you are not in the present.
You are either anxiously projecting the future or depressed and stuck in the past.
The only thing you have any control over is the present moment; simple breathing exercises can make us calm and present instantly.
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
KNOW YOUR EMOTIONS
If you feel emotions bubbling, you might be tempted to put a lid on them.
Trying to bottle them up never works a blocked emotion just builds up more pressure.
Allow yourself to feel your emotions fully then respond to them mindfully with a thoughtful action plan.
By all means let off steam if it helps.
Accepting the full power of your emotions makes it easier to move forward.
THE SIX SENSES AND YOUR WELL-BEING
Touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound can improve your well-being in all sorts of surprising ways.
About a quarter of the human brain’s mass is devoted to processing information from the five senses.
Given that the brain plays such a central role in health, it’s not surprising that the five senses are closely tied to well-being.
But beyond merely proving those connections exist, researchers have recently started to explore ways to purposely manipulate them for people’s benefit.
“Interventions based on what we see, feel, and even taste can have a seemingly dramatic effect on health, “says Charles Spence, an Oxford University PhD researcher who runs a lab dedicated to studying the role that perception plays in behavior and health.
They can reduce pain, speed recovery from illness, and much more.
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?
DID YOU KNOW?
Born Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor, Queen Elizabeth II has been the United Kingdom’s monarch since 1952.
This royal lefty became Queen upon the death of her father, George VI, also a southpaw.

CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
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.
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 9 – LET THE PAST GO
Today, ACCEPT YOUR REALITY
To let go and move on, you must stop expecting something that is not going to happen.
This is where detachment comes in.
Move on to fulfill your life with friends and family who do want to be part of your life.
Sometimes unfulfilling relationships are just a matter of timing and heavy responsibilities.
Sometimes the past obscures the possibilities for the present.
Sometimes the person is unable to see you for the valuable individual you are.
Sometimes you are wanting to help someone change who is quite content with who they are.
Don’t harden your heart if feeling is not mutual, but do free yourself from trying to earn the caring that should be a gift.
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?
Elderberries aids in digestion.
Elderberries are rich in dietary fiber that helps eliminate or lower constipation, cut down excess gas, and improve your gastrointestinal health.
Fiber is also helpful in increasing your nutrient uptake efficiency, allowing you to get more nutrients out of the food.

PLENTY OF TIME ⏲️ NOW
Until Wednesday, time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time, past and future; the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.
