Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probable reason why so few engage in it.
CONTINUING ON A NEW SERIES, 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.
This week is coming to an end and we are also counting down to some cooler weather, Autumn arrives in 7 days.
Yes, less than a week to go and the leaves will be starting to change!
The other day, we started out with explaining what life is?
This is a fundamental part of why we exist and these days some of us are forgetting the properties of life.
Dan and I have talked about this and thought it would be a great idea to blog about, after all its part of keeping healthy.
Biologists have identified various traits common to all the living organisms we know of.
Although nonliving things may show some of these characteristic traits, only living things show all of them.
Let’s start with the first characteristic trait, organization.
Living things are highly organized, meaning they contain specialized, coordinated parts.
All living organisms are made up of one or more cells, which are considered the fundamental units of life.
Even unicellular organisms are complex!
Inside each cell, atoms make up molecules, which make up cell organelles and structures.
In multicellular organisms, similar cells form tissues.
Tissues, in turn, collaborate to create organs (body structures with a distinct function).
Organs work together to form organ systems.
Multicellular organisms, such as humans are made up of many cells.
The cells in multicellular organisms may be specialized to do different jobs and are organized into tissues, such as connective tissue, epithelial tissue, muscle, and nervous tissue.
Tissues make up organs, such as the heart or lungs, which carry out specific functions needed by the organism as a whole.
Tomorrow the second characteristic trait, metabolism.
Stop going on a wild goose chase.
Ironically, the single-minded pursuit of happiness is leaving people less happy.
It is the very pursuit of happiness, that thwarts happiness, according to Viktor Frankl, a famous Austrian Neurologist and Holocaust survivor.
If you’ve read Dan and my posts, and are now wondering how to take that first step to figuring out what your true purpose is in life.
We are here to help you reframe your mind and actions so that you can embark on a journey of finding true meaning to your life.
Everything that you can do and accomplish in life are bound by the Life Multipliers.
These are the true essentials needed to achieve excellence.
They’ll put you on a path that gives great meaning and satisfaction in life.
The best thing of all?
They already exist in each of us.
We just don’t always make the most of it or sometimes we aren’t even aware of the power that each of these skills have to help us in life.
On its own, each skill is unique and can help you through different stages of life, or problems.
But as a whole set, these 7 Life Multipliers in the coming posts will give you full transformation over any situation.
No matter what phase of life you’re in, what you’re striving to achieve or what you’re lacking, your pursuit of meaning in life will be much faster when you’re able to make use of not one.
But all the life multipliers.
SEPTEMBER – 16th, 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?
Today is a bitter sweet day for both Dan and I!
This date was when my father past and also when Dan’s mother past seventeen years apart.
Both were mentors in our lives and have given us true respect of life.
Also, this is my little sister’s birthday, wishing her a life of happiness.
Plus, for seven years we celebrated; Mexican Independence Day.
Living in Mexico gave Dan and I a life of adventure, taught us to enjoy it and gave us wonderful friends.
However, today I am to honor my father; for he was a barber for many years I chose this celebration in honor of him.
Barber Day – September 16, 202
Barber’s Day is celebrated on September 16 every year, join this celebration if you enjoy making others look beautiful!
Did you know barbers in the Middle Ages were not only skilled at haircuts and wet shaves, but also at pulling teeth, dressing wounds, and performing operations!
These barber surgeons were known for much more than just styling men’s hair.
They even founded the first barber’s organization in France in 1096.
World Barber’s Day celebrates this sense of community, it’s a demonstration of how ordinary barbers can contribute to extraordinary differences.
World Barber’s Day emphasizes how, in just one week every barber can make a real and significant difference in the world
Barbers used to be the most talented men in their tribes, and they generally specialized in more than one discipline.
People were quite superstitious about haircuts and shaving back then because they thought that bad spirits entered the body through the hair.
Only the most trustworthy individuals were entrusted with the task of barbering, which was usually the priest or the clan leader.
In recent years, there has been a growing appreciation for the unique role that barbers play in assisting people with their mental health.
One such example is a non-profit venture in which a salon doubles up as a meeting place for men of color to discuss their issues.
A similar program is taking shape in the U.K., where the N.H.S., the country’s public health service, announced a 2020 initiative to provide mental health first aid training to barbers.
Barbers have been practicing their trade for thousands of years, but it is only recently that barbers have gained recognition for their contribution to humanity.
Booksy, which supports thousands of barbers, took advantage of the chance to commemorate a day when customers and barbers get together to contribute money for various social causes.
Barbers are often self-sufficient, driven entrepreneurs that work relentlessly to keep their clients happy.
It’s a lot to handle, so Booksy created National Barber Day to remind barbers that taking a day off; taking some time for themselves, and talking about their difficulties are perfectly acceptable.
Aside from acting as a therapist for their consumers, they can also choose to donate together to help a social cause.
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.
THE GRAND ESSENTIALS TO HAPPINESS IN THIS LIFE ARE SOMETHING TO DO; SOMETHING TO LOVE AND SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR.
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-
At the court of King Henry VIII, the cooks in the vast kitchens at English palaces like Hampton Court would labor to produce elaborate dishes to tempt the king’s palate.
A favorite was different sizes of game bird, from a swan to a lark; all slotted inside each other.
Meat was surprisingly highly spiced.
Not just to disguise the well-hung flavor, but also as a leftover habit from medieval times.
The crusaders bought the tradition of using spices into western Europe.
Food has always excited us, interested us and given us energy.
This is as true now as ever!
We bring our world literally into the body through the foods we taste.
Tomorrow, KEEPING AN INTERNAL BALANCE-
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!
SUMMARIZING ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM-
It is barely recognized, but nevertheless true, that animals and plants, as well as men, can live peacefully with their most notorious microbial enemies.
The world is obsessed by the fact that poliomyelitis can kill and maim several thousand unfortunate victims every year.
But more extraordinary is the fact that millions upon millions of young people become infected by polio viruses, yet suffer no harm from the infection.
The dramatic episodes of conflict between men and microbes are what strike the mind.
What is less readily apprehended is the more common fact that infection can occur without producing disease.
Rene Dubos, Microbiologist (Mirage of Health, Harper, 1959)
To a member of modern society, the suffering no harm that Dubos mentions appears
extraordinary, but as he goes on to say; it is the more common fact.
In a community properly endowed with health, the extraordinary event would be anybody getting sick at all.
To summarize the immune system:
• The capability of the immune system, when functioning properly; is far greater than generally imagined.
• The general level of health in civilized society is marginal, and therefore so too is the general level of immunocompetence.
• This accounts for the generally accepted high incidence of all kinds of infections, particularly influenza and the increase in VD, herpes, hepatitis, candida and so on.
• Also associated with marginal health and poor immunocompetence is the relentless increase in cancer.
• The immune system cannot be artificially boosted; all it needs is a supply of decent blood with plenty of oxygen in a body free of stress and it soon regenerates of its own accord.
Tomorrow, Factors that Affect the Immune System-
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
SO FEW ENGAGE IN IT
Until Saturday, ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands.
But, like the seafaring men on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides,
and following them reach your destiny.
