3. Consuming coffee daily can drastically decrease your chances of developing liver cancer and disease
Italian researcher Dr. Carlo La Vecchia, Milan’s Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri conducted a study that shows consuming at least one cup of coffee daily can lower the risk of liver cancer by 40%! Additionally, some results showed that if you drink three cups a day, the risks reduce by more than 50%. According to a study at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program, coffee consumption can lower the incidence of cirrhosis of the liver for alcohol drinkers by 22%. Research also showed that drinking more than two cups of coffee daily reduce the risk of death from liver cirrhosis by 66%.

4. Whistle While You Work: Music can Enhance Your Work Performance?

Listening to music during work is frowned upon However, music can actually help your work performance?
The researchers found that listening did improve task performance on simple tasks, but not on complex tasks (Oldham 1995). Nonetheless, for the employees that listened to music, the music made them more relaxed and in a better mood at work. The researchers also found that the employees that listened to music were less likely to quit (Oldham 1995).

It seems carefully tailoring the music you listen to while studying, based on the subject matter and your mood, can help keep you focused — so long as you stay away from lyrics while doing language-based work.

5. People who are easily distracted tend to be more intelligent.

People who often find their mind wandering have too much brain. Specifically, the easily distracted tended to have more grey matter. So says Ryota Kanai and his colleagues at University College London, who found larger than average volumes of grey matter in certain brain regions in those whose attention is readily diverted.

6. Why we fear the things we do

The amygdala is probably one of the smallest structures in the human brain. It’s just a tiny mass of neurons (Bailey, 2014). It’d be easy to dismiss it, but you shouldn’t-and here’s why. The amygdala has a lot on its plate. For one, it controls the secretion of hormones that are responsible for fear and aggression (Bailey, 2014). It also interacts with the hippocampus to deal with your memory (Bailey, 2014). It’s no wonder, then, that the amygdala is what is responsible for controlling your phobias.
Is it something innately born, the answer is probably not. The research conducted shows that a genetic link is highly unlikely (Goode, 2015). It’s much more likely that phobias are the product of our environment or experiences.

Let your imagination fun free

This is so easy for some but for others not so easy.
It appears, for me I need to train myself to imagine. I don’t dream that much at night, well if I do I don’t remember the dreams.

I seem to be a person that accepts what the present reality is at this moment and don’t take the time to dream or expand my imagination.
I think I know what I want, but don’t take the time to think about it much. I just except that it will or won’t be a reality. I think most of us have this same issue.
What I am saying is that we don’t allow ourselves to be distracted from what we are doing in our life, we just keep plowing with our heads down. In reality I believe we should allow our imagination to soar as it may take us in a direction that could give us complete harmony, success and happiness. Sow some seeds.
I was reading an article on the Belief Website. I began thinking about the article and realising that I don’t make use of my imagination enough and could see some of the reasons why.

I am sure I am not on my own with this. We are often too busy to take the time for ourselves, to stop and take in our own imagination. We are surrounded by demands, noise, expectations, opinions. This often distracts us from where in life we would like to be. We forget to be True to ourselves.

Here are some suggestions for you and myself included to get that imagination “fired” up

1. We need to stop, find a space to ourselves and ask “What If”. Start the day dreaming who knows where it will take us.

2. Fear Kills imagination – This is such a truism. Sometimes I am so fearful that I wont get my dream because I want that dream to be real, or that if I let my imagination run free and it feels so good ,I fear I will never achieve it. That needs to stop I just need to slow down and enjoy the picture, just breathe it and take pleasure in that place. Give yourself permission to dream and release your imagination.

3. Take the time, allow your mind to reawaken the child in you. As a young child we normally have great imaginations. We need to get that back.

4. Let go of reality – Start to play with your mind, allow it to wander everywhere, until it finds a peaceful picture that is relaxing and new that it wants to dwell on.

5. Dont Limit yourself – Be at a place that is so beautiful that it is almost unbelievable. See yourself so rich, the richest person in the world, if that’s what you want. See yourself extremely healthy, young, fit. See yourself anything you want to be.

6. Write the dream down. Write down what your imagination has allowed you to imagine. Draw a picture. Each day you could imagine something different.

7. Don’t try to analyse – just let that imagination be what it is. Let your mind do the wandering. Have no expectations, let the mind cleanse.

8. Never say “no” to your imagination or dream. Saying “No” turns the imagination to “Off”

9. Don’t accept failure – the more you take the time to imagine the more your imagination will blossom. Just keep practicing and trying.

10. Don’t forget to Breath – To inspire ourselves we need to be relaxed and 4 good deep breaths will start you on your way.

I wish you great success and remember “Dreams are Free”

Love & Fear

Pro skateboarder Mike Vallely at Orlando Skate Park by Rick Andrews

Do you know what happens inside our bodies in reaction to love and fear? I didn’t know, but I was intrigued when I researched it and now I’m going to share it with here.

It all started off by me reading an article today about Love and Fear, which I thought was so interesting. I had no idea about the actual chemical process that is triggered by Love and Fear.

A threatening stimuli cause stress hormones of adrenalin and Cortisol. By contrast, love, or soothing stimuli, causes the increase of the hormone Oxytocin.

Sudden fright or fear is associated with the production of Adrenaline, which in turn increases the heart rate, causing muscle reaction and alertness. You become sweaty, your breathing becomes more rapid and you often feel a shiver go through your body.

Long-term stress or fear produces Cortisol. Cortisol has a different effect on the body than adrenaline. Cortisol is more detrimental to the body. Cortisol begins to break down non-essential organs and tissues to keep blood sugars available to feed vital organs. Chronic production of Cortisol at high levels (long periods of stress) begins to digest bones, muscles and joints to get these essential nutrients.

What happens in this case is blood fats and sugar become elevated. This is a cause of many disorders; one of them is reaching for high-calorie foods.

An example of prolonged stress that can cause health problems is the threat of loosing your job, commuting in heavy traffic each day to work, an unreasonable boss and dreading going to work. Marriage problems can also create stress that produces Cortisol. These problem or life issues may not be always be outwardly physically detrimental to the body, but the production of Cortisol, because of this stress, is extremely hard indirectly on the body.

Fortunately for us our amazing body system has a hormone to counteract the harmful hormones. The anti-stress hormone is called Oxytocin. Oxytocin can promote better health.

We need to know how to kick Oxytocin hormones into gear so that our stressful conditions do not destroy our bodies.

There is a lot of ways that can help our body produces Oxytocin:

  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Prayer
  • Pets
  • Support groups
  • Stillness, love and appreciation
  • Laughter and joy
  • Intimate relationships
  • Cuddling
  • Stroking
  • Companionship and caring

The more Oxcytocin the body makes the stronger our immune system is and our body and mind become stronger also. The more Oxytocin the body produces the more nerve cell’s receptors grow. I guess it’s like a healthy plant; the more you feed it the more it grows and spreads.

Oxytocin has many positive affects on the body:

  • Allow you to handle fear in a more controlled manner
  • Helps to heal
  • Helps reduce addictions such as sugar, food and chemical addictions
  • Helps you live longer and healthier
  • Helps make you more receptive sexually
  • Helps with confidence
  • Keeps you calm and relaxed

So this is a good example of why you should try to keep you life as stress-free as you can. Stress and fear have obviously got a lot of harmful effects on the body and mind; if not controlled they will have long term and terminal results.

On the other hand the effects of love and joy are so beneficial for the body.

I had very little knowledge of the chemical effects of these hormones and find it quite fascinating, as I do with all our body functions. Our body is quite the perfectly designed machine.

Needs to be serviced regularly to keep it in top form.

Never take it for granted.
