Gratitude is Good For Your Health

Dr. P. Murali Doraiswamy, an expert in brain and mind health, once said, “If [thankfulness] were a drug, it would be the world’s best-selling product with a health maintenance indication for every major organ system.”

 

I so believe that to be true. Sometime life throws you a curve that you wonder how the hell you are going to handle it. You do in a couple of ways – major stress which is so detrimental to your  health or you show gratitude for the great things you already have and you will be surprised how well you handle a difficult situation.

Wisdom of the ancient dictate that events are just that Events, some perceived to be good or bad.  It is your belief about the event that upsets you, not the fact that it happened.

Here is a few short ways to handle situations with Gratitude

 

Write thank-you notes

Give verbal praise and say “thank you” more often

Give thanks at each meal

Change your perception – Its up to you t0 handle a situation the best you can

Be mindful of your nonverbal actions – smile or a hug

Prayer and/or mindfulness meditation – Grateful for, such as a pleasant smell, a cool breeze or a lovely memory.

Nightly gratitude ritual written down – This is an excellent habit to get into 

Spend money on activities instead of things – spend money on experiences.

Embrace the idea of having “enough” –  Minimalist lifestyle

Spend more time in nature and  barefoot

Try tapping – Glad I found this article cause have not done this in months (showed in video). This is well worth watching.

 

Here is a video, not a short one but one that could affect the rest of your life in a way you never thought possible.

Survive Crisis No 7

You are driving and about to hit something about to be hit.
I know about this one as I have hit a few Kangaroo’s in my time.

 

Deer-Crossing-Road

 

Jeff Payne a former professional race car driver and the CEO of the non-profit  firm “Drivers edge” in Las Vegas.
The three biggest objects you are likely to hit on the road is another vehicle, debris, and wildlife.
Here is advised to either avoid the accident or minimize your damage.

 

a. ESP – Use it. Be ready for the unexpected especially when you sense the traffic is erratic. If the car in front slams on his brakes look to see if the right lane is clear and move over. At least maneuver your vehicle to minimize the impact.
Your brain should be predicting what the surrounding drivers will do. Especially if everyone is driving like mad men. If you are totally focused you will never be distracted. The same goes for motorcycles.

 

b. Embrace smooth and cool – The first instinct when something appears in front of us is to hit the brakes and swerve – No No No – not a good idea. sudden moves could cause you to overcorrect lose control and make the situation worse.

c Minimize the impact. – If you cannot avoid impact, alter it. If you are the only one in the car try to angle it so the front passenger side takes the hit. If you have someone else in the car angle it so you take the hit on your side.

 

d. Focus on the main event. – If you come upon an object in your lane do not fixate on it. Your eyes act as your guide, if something falls off the back of a truck and you stare at it, you will for sure hit it. Look for an escape route and that is where the car will go.

 

e. Hit the gas – The only time you will want to accelerate is when you are about to hit a large animal. If you slam your brakes on before, say hitting a deer the front end of your car will dip and this makes it more likely that the animal will fly up over your hood and come through the windshield. Speeding up before you hit will make the front end rise and confine it to the bumper.
Aim for the rear end. If an animal bolts it does not bolt backwards. You may miss it or at the most graze it. In that case not too much damage will be done.
