I’m not talking about what makes you happy in
the moment, but rather, what really drives your life. What gives your life
In a study published in the Journal
of Positive Psychology that examines self-reported attitudes toward
happiness and meaning, the researchers found a meaningful life and a happy life
overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately different, reports Emily Esfahani
Smith in TheAtlantic.
The easiest way to lower
your blood pressure is to listen to a Paraliminal every day.
Many scientific studies have
shown that three or four months of daily meditation lowers the upper blood
pressure number (systolic) 4 to 10 points (or mm Hg)—that can be significant.
Since using Paraliminals can get you similar results as doing meditation, try
it to see what happens for you.
You can buy a blood
pressure cuff to measure your own blood pressure from Amazon for $30.
They are very easy to use.
I’m surprised at how many of
my friends are acting and looking older.
It’s almost as if they’re
playing the part of an old person.
Now, there’s nothing wrong
with being old. Heck, I turned 60 a couple of years ago, and I’m no young ‘un.
I certainly love all the benefits that come from the experiences of life. It is
immensely satisfying to embrace the wisdom.
Despite ever growing
awareness about the pernicious effects of sugar, ranging from diabetes to
obesity, the average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of added sugar each
day, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Beyond candy, refined
sugars can be found in everything from sodas and peanut butter to barbecue
sauce and bread.
Could we be addicted to
It’s possible, according to
Princeton University researchers who have studied the signs of sugar addiction
in rats. They’ve shown that rats bingeing on sugar demonstrated the three
elements of addiction: a behavioral pattern of increased intake and changes in
brain chemistry; signs of withdrawal and further changes in brain chemistry
upon deprivation; and, signs of cravings and relapse after withdrawal is over.
