The squeaky wheel may get the most oil, but it’s also the first to be replaced.
CONTINUING THIS WEEKS POST ON, WHAT IS LIFE ABOUT AND WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE? AND WHY DO WE EXIST? PLUS, CONTINUING ON THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
As I wake up this morning, my heart is with my family and friends in Florida.
Awaiting to her from my mom, for her power has been out since yesterday.
Growing up in Florida, I remember those days, preparing for a hurricane.
I know how stressful this can be, praying for all.
Continuing the series, what is the meaning of life?
In combining our physical and mental functions, we can control our bodies and keep them healthy.
It took me a long time to realize this for myself.
Hopefully, this will help you, our followers.
The last two weeks we posted on, self-empowerment, self-control, renewable vitality, emotion mastery and conscious communication along with smart focus, learning & adaptability, and constructive thinking.
Simple Ways to Find Out What Life is About-
Today, we will explore the fourth one; Try a Hobby.
Find a hobby that indulges your interests and simultaneously challenges your skills.
Dive into a pursuit that has always intrigued or fascinated you, but you’ve never had the time to explore on your own.
Practice a new instrument, go fly fishing, try painting, learn a language, the world’s your oyster!
According to science, when we take part in enjoyable hobbies, our brain releases chemical messengers called dopamine, which helps us feel happy and pleasure.
SEPTEMBER – 29th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about September that is so significant during this month?
National Coffee Day – September 29, 2022
While the U.S. and Canada celebrate National Coffee Day on September 29, other nations mark this day throughout the calendar.
International Coffee Day happens just two days later October 1.
The International Coffee Organization has pledged to help struggling coffee farmers worldwide make a living wage.
The history of National Coffee Day seems a bit, well, cloudy.
We believe September 29 came about as a jolting reminder to get back to work following a long summer; even though it’s a full week after the first day of fall.
After all, Americans have turned procrastination into an art form.
On the other hand, the history of coffee itself clearly goes back to 15th century Yemen.
As for Europeans, they got their first taste about 100 years later, with Venice leading the way.
Per the National Coffee Association, it wasn’t a smooth ride.
Some people reacted to this new beverage with suspicion or fear, calling it the bitter invention of Satan.
The local clergy condemned coffee when it came to Venice in 1615.
The controversy was so great that Pope Clement VIII was asked to intervene.
He decided to taste the beverage for himself before planning and found the drink so satisfying that he gave it papal approval.
Mainland Europe’s first official coffeehouse (no, they didn’t serve lattes) opened in Venice around 1645.
Back in the U.S., if it weren’t for the Boston Tea Party in 1773, Americans may never have swapped tea for coffee.
When the colonies revolted against King George III’s hefty tea tax, tea was out, and coffee was in.
Things really started to percolate in the mid-1800s when brothers John and Charles Arbuckle started selling coffee to cowboys in the American West.
James Folger successfully introduced coffee to gold miners in California.
Upon returning to San Francisco in 1865, Folger became a full partner of The Pioneer Steam Coffee and Spice Mills, which eventually became the J.A. Folger & Co. in 1872.
Other brands including Maxwell House and Hills Brothers soon entered the coffee market.
A yearning for specialty coffee took hold in the 1960s and a little Seattle company called Starbucks changed everything in 1971.
Today the U.S. coffee shop market has grown to a $45.4 billion industry, according to Allegra World Coffee Portal’s 2019 Project Café USA report.
Dry coffee sales topped $9 billion in 2017 in the U.S.
Thanks King George III!
Several months ago, I did a series on coffee the herb.
Dan and I welcome you to go to the blog page and look on the right side of the page, click on hashtags# coffee.
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.
HAPPINESS ALWAYS LOOKS SMALL WHILE YOU HOLD IT IN YOUR HANDS, BUT LET GO, AND YOU LEARN AT ONCE HOW BIG AND PRECIOUS IT IS.
Today Dan and I will be continuing 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 always with you; 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.
HAPTER 2; THE SENSORY JOURNEY; TASTE-
EATING PATTERNS AND STRESS-
It is also important to void eating when you are severely stressed or anxious.
It is far more supportive in your system to calm yourself, either through a relaxation technique like the ten-breath exercise or taking a break, going outside and then returning to eat your meal.
If you are stressed, your abdominal area will be tensed up and this can affect the efficient function of your digestive system.
Eating while watching angry or violent scenes on TV can upset your digestive balance, eating in a relaxed and calm atmosphere is a pleasure and supportive to your health.
This may be why it was often the tradition in medieval monasteries to eat in silence!
Tomorrow, MEDIEVAL MOOD FOODS-
As I ponder over all that I have learned, I have come to find 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 separate ways through body, heart, and soul.
It is 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 is important to know how it works!
Germs and Viruses????
Continuing from yesterday, it was in 1916 while studying typhus that Dr Enderlein observed microscopic living entities in blood samples which he called protits.
This, which could move; unite with other microorganisms and disappear.
Later, using dark field microscopy, he observed that these micro-organisms could change in form through a cycle of countless variations.
And he also described how different types of protein-based micro-organisms flourished in blood cells and plasma of all animals.
This representing an essential part of the normal life process.
As part of the normal life process, these microorganisms live together within the body in a mutually beneficial relationship known as symbiosis.
However, he noted that with any deterioration of the body's interior environment in which the pH of the blood becomes either acid or strongly alkaline the normally harmless microbes would begin to change and in stages evolve into forms of a pathogenic nature, just as Bechamp had said.
Enderlein recorded these observations in his book Bakterien Cyclogenic (The Life Cycle of Bacteria), published in 1925 (translated from the German by Dr Phillip Hadley), at which time he became a member of the Microbiological Society of Vienna of which he was later to become president.
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
SQUEAKY WHEEL ⚙️
Until Friday, celebrate what you’ve accomplished,
but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.
