Tough times don't last, tough people do, remember?
CONTINUING ON SERIES, WE ARE DESIGNED TO SURVIVE AND ON LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. PLUS, THE BOOK TEN-MINUTE RELAXATION FOR MIND AND BODY.
Happy hump day!
Half way through the week.
How do you feel?
Well, the purity of the environment within depends on the quality of the blood and lymph and the vigor of the circulation.
The cleansing action of the lymph being as important as its nourishing action.
And, in turn the quality of the blood is dependent primarily on the efficiency of the liver and kidneys and the quality of the food and water from which the body makes new blood.
When the quality of the environment within is just right the blood and lymph flow freely, rich in nutrients and oxygen and free of unwanted substances or toxins.
The red cells float freely and so too do the white cells of the immune system, vigorous and efficient.
When this ideal condition is achieved, all the organs of the body harmonize and everything works the way it should.
The condition of perfectly balanced body chemistry is called homeostasis.
Yes, we were designed to survive!
AUGUST – 10th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?
Update Your Bio Day – August 10, 2022
This holiday is a fun celebration twofold: first, people are encouraged to self-reflect and assess their own accomplishments, skills, and experiences thus far.
It’s a way to recenter your confidence by reminding yourself that you are good enough to achieve your goals.
What’s more, it’s also a way to prepare for future employment.
Updating your bio or your resumé means taking a step forward to your future goals, getting nearer to your dream job, and planning for a better future.
Learn more about the ways you can celebrate Update Your Bio Day.
While it seems like a 21st-century invention, bios or resumes have existed way back in the 15th century.
It was Leonardo Da Vinci who sent the first resumé in recorded history back in 1482 when he sent a letter to a regent in Milan, Italy.
His letter contained a breakdown of his skills, expertise, and experiences for an engineering job post he was applying for.
Historians note that he even hired a professional writer to craft the resumé for him to make it look decent.
However, he didn’t get the job. But the landscape of job hunting and applications has changed forever.
In the 16th century, a land surveyor from England named Ralph Agas also developed and improved upon Da Vinci’s concept of a resumé by making his version more detailed, specific, and easy to read.
This was the start of the modern resumé structure we know today.
However, the term resumé is French, which is why other historians claim that its country of origin is France.
By the 20th century, applicants began writing down a series of information relevant to the jobs they are applying for.
Some details included a brief bio (name, birthday, birthplace, address), educational background, skills, and past experiences.
As years went by, companies started to require applicants to have a bio/resumé with a neat cover letter expressing their intent to apply.
By the late 20th century, resumes evolved into printed form, making them cleaner, sharper, and more professional.
As soon as the 21st century hit, resumés started going online.
In fact, companies now use their websites to gather a pool of candidates for potential employment.
Others would simply temporarily upload their resumés in their personal job-hunting accounts and update them from time to time.
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.
YOU ARE ALIVE. SO, STRIVE AND THRIVE.
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 19; DANCING WITH PORCUPINES (last chapter of the book)
For you sports lovers, the greatest ice hockey player; Wayne Gretzky was quoted as saying, I’m not the fastest- nor the strongest- but I know how to keep my eye on the puck.
In relationships the possibilities are the puck.
Keeping your eye on the possibilities is tricky when you are dancing with a porcupine.
It’s not impossible but it takes a lot of sheer will-power to focus on the possibilities when you keep being stuck by the quills.
Yet the excitement of a difficult relationship lies in the discovery of the value of someone who hides behind prickly defenses and in affirming your flexibility that helps you bend without breaking.
You begin to see your challenging relationship as a small miracle that can bring about knowledge and change to you both.
That reality is that if you want relief beyond belief, you must learn to dance with the porcupines.
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 1; WHAT IS STRESS?
DIFFERENT TYPES OF STRESS-
THE 10 BREATHS- SPECIAL BREATHING EXERCISE FOR EMOTIONAL
Before posting the 10-minute exercise, note to ourselves; a vigorous walk-in nature can help in ease physical and mental pressures.
10-minute exercise for emotional stress.
This may not even take you 10-minutes!
The next time you feel emotionally upset or angry, find a quiet corner somewhere.
Sit down and count 10 breaths; in and out equals one breath.
They don’t have to be big.
Just deep breaths, just be even and regular.
What usually happens is that after 6 or 7 you lose count and you feel quite different.
Your pulse rate slows down.
Your mind calms itself and your awareness comes back into your body.
The problems may not have gone away.
But you will be much better placed to deal with it.
Tomorrow, THE SENSES AND STRESS RELIEF-
The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
