CONTINUING THE SERIES ON REMEMBER TO CELEBRATE MILESTONES AS YOU PREPARE FOR THE ROAD AHEAD AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE HERB – ASHWAGANDHA.
Happy Hump Day!
Your half way through the week.
Are you planning for the week-end yet?
How about, do you remember reaching adulthood?
So many questions!
Reaching adulthood opens the door for even more milestones.
As a child, you’re beholden to the path set in front of you by your parents.
But as an adult, you’re free to choose your own way.
Still, there are some key milestones that most people experience.
Tomorrow, we will be exploring the 10th experience, leaving home.
It’s the 15th day of June, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about June that’s so significant during this month?
National Smile Power Day – June 15, 2022
National Smile Power Day is celebrated on June 15.
While people say that love makes the world go round, what people forget is that it’s a smile that makes the world a much happier place.
A smile is contagious and can make everyone else instantly perk up.
Let’s spend the entire day with big bright smiles on our faces.
Spreading joy is all that this day is about.
A fun fact about smiling is that it can instantly make another person feel better about themselves, build their self-confidence, and also improve their self-esteem.
Also is, National Prune Day – June 15, 2022
On this day, the many health benefits of these dried plums are highlighted.
Prunes are incredibly rich in fiber, vitamin A, and cancer-fighting antioxidants.
What’s more, they’re also good for your vision and digestion.
It also helps prevent muscular degeneration and night blindness.
But don’t be deceived, there are many ways to eat this fruit.
If you’re not a fan of its texture, discover different ways to consume them.
From cakes, and juices, to salads, this is the time to be creative in incorporating prunes into your diet.
Despite being a popular western food product, prunes actually originated in China.
The Chinese cultivated wild plums where they processed them from sour plums to sweet fruit using molasses and brown sugar.
They’re dried under the sun before turning into this wrinkly fruit we all know today.
The sugar acts as a preservative, which makes them last longer.
These fruits are used as stock food items in case their harvest is poor, as well as snacks and meal replacements for travelers.
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.
LIVE IN THE NEW AND THE HOW WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF.
Continuing from last year 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 16; IS DIFFERENT SCREWED UP?
Continuing, REALITY CHECK FIVE; KNOW WHERE RESPONSIBILITY ENDS-
These people have a way of pulling us in and making us respond to them in the way they want.
This is the point when we must think about where our responsibility ends.
We can put up with someone’s demands but not if meeting those demands affects our own self-esteem or intrudes on our other responsibilities.
We can lend a helping hand but we are not responsible for picking someone up and standing that person on their feet.
We can be patient with the rebel but also feel free to say that’s enough if our efforts are continually rejected.
When we realize where our responsibility ends, it frees us from guilt.
We don’t have unreasonable expectations for our efforts to help the difficult person and we are free to get on with our own life.
Tomorrow, DIFFERENT BUT OKAY-
This is the spot that Dan and I have been posting, on the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs.
This week Dan and I have been blogging on the herb; ASHWAGANDHA and the benefits.
It’s amazing what and how ashwagandha can help keep your body healthy?
Ashwagandha benefits athletic performances.
Yes, it does!
Research has shown that ashwagandha has beneficial effects on athletic performance and may be a worthwhile supplement for athletes.
One analysis of research included 12 studies in men and women who took ashwagandha doses between 120 mg and 1,250 mg per day.
The results suggest the herb may enhance physical performance, including strength and oxygen use during exercise.
An analysis of five studies found that taking ashwagandha significantly enhanced maximum oxygen consumption (VO2 max) in healthy adults and athletes.
VO2 max is the maximum amount of oxygen a person can use during intense activity.
It’s a measurement of heart and lung fitness.
Having optimal VO2 max is important for athletes and nonathletes alike.
Low VO2 max is associated with increased mortality risk, while higher VO2 max is associated with a lower risk of heart disease.
Additionally, ashwagandha helps increase muscle strength.
In one study, male participants who took 600 mg of ashwagandha per day and participated in resistance training for 8 weeks had significantly greater gains in muscle strength and size compared with a placebo group.
Ashwagandha helps improve measures of physical performance in athletes and healthy adults, including VO2 max and strength.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
Until Thursday, your path has not been determined. It shall have more
experiences and pass many more milestones.
