Three things in life – your health, your mission, and the people you love.
Continuing the SERIES ON BELIEVING Starting today on SERIES OF HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO KEEP OUR BODY CELLS HAPPY
It is TGF, have you ever wondered why they use TGF for Friday? Its title is THANK GOODNESS FOR!
So, I guess it is correct, for we all wish for Friday – the weekend begins. It’s time to relax and unwind from the stressful week. This is the time for us to give our body cells a break and thank them for holding you up all week long.
Every second, millions of your cells die, and need to be replaced with new ones (worry not - it still makes only a small fraction of your total cell count). While young, your body is creating more cells than it loses; as you age, this gradually turns around. In any case, in order to sustain life of all those cells - that is, your own -
This is where the saying you are what you eat, for you have to supply them with necessary nutrients.
It is the bloodstream that carries this flow of life: blood forced out of the capillaries by the pulsating force of heartbeats baths the cells with nutrients and body-produced substances they need for proper functioning and regeneration. After fluid exchange with the cells, most of intracellular fluid is absorbed back to capillaries (small portion is absorbed by the lymphatic system), taking cells' metabolic waste to the channels of elimination: intestine, kidneys and skin.
The constant flow of blood ensures that this process never gets interrupted. So, you see why you have to make sure you keep your body cells happy!
The big picture is as simple as that. Contents of the tissue fluid vary with the tissue and organ it surrounds, according to their specific functions. As long as it contains just what it needs to accomplish its nourishing, regulatory and janitorial functions to body cells, you are healthy.
If it is missing something, or contains significant levels of destructive or interfering agents - the notorious among these being free radicals, chemical toxins or energy fields - your health suffers: the stage for the onset of a disease is set.
Its all about the body cells and how we treat them! Your cells nourishment and protection are the two out of three main ingredients of the recipe for health. You want to keep your cells happy, and give to them all they need to function, regenerate and multiply optimally. And, just as important, to protect them from harm.
Part of making sure that your cells get what they need is paying attention to your body's metabolic preferences. Not only that it will make you feel better if you eliminate foods that fall short of making you feel energized, or cause discomfort - foods that your body does well with may tell you something important about your health.

TOUCH IT OUT
If you’re used to constantly being around people and getting swept along with the crowd, spending time on your own can take some adjustment. At first it might feel slightly scary, but stick with it. Being happy in your own company is an important foundation for your mental health. Start slowly by spending just ten minutes in your own company without any distractions. Do the things you really enjoy and take time to be present in the moment.
Challenge yourself to a solo date. The cinema is a good option once the lights go down and the film starts, you don’t really need anyone to talk to. Plus, you get to choose which film you want, and you don’t have to share your popcorn.
I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person. By Olivia Wilde

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. By Henry Ford
This life is yours, take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life, no one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life healthy, exciting, worthwhile and very happy. By Susan Polis Schutz
As I continue to be re-reading my book that I wrote four years ago; it’s a personal journey of my everyday experience with treatments that I received in Mexico. In relations to the current series of BELIEVING, entry from 5-14-11; SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH.
What is the truth? Is it what the media says? Or even what our doctors tell us? We learn from a young age to believe and listen to our parents about what and whom to trust. But did we listen to them! The answers to the questions above are for us to take heed to our hearts. Since I was diagnosed and researching, I found out the only person you can rely on is yourself. By doing this you will obtain the knowledge and be able to make up your own mind.
I have always taken into account people’s opinions, and did not take it that we are on this earth for only a short time. We need to take control of what is good and what is not. I am very passionate about keeping people informed by showing what is around us; this is why I am creating this journal, to show everyone there’s another way to take care of your health without harmful things. We can do this for ourselves by not using manmade chemicals.

Yesterday, Dan and I both did our meditation and Qigong; however, the day came and gone. Went on some sites regarding my book to update information. Well, if you know how these things go, it took me the whole day to get correct information on these sites. Nevertheless, walking was out of the picture. I guess one day, Dan and I can play hooky from walking. Did you walk? Here is a WALK AT HOME video if you can’t get out.
