Saw these on facebook today and thought it was a brilliant Idea.
2. There are fences around London that are made from WWII medical stretchers. During the war Great Britain tore down fences and used the metal for the war effort then recycled the stretchers back into fences when the war ended. These fences still have the curved hand holders.
3. Stats on feet –
- 52 is the total number of bones in your two feet. That accounts for 25% of all the bones in your body.
- 40 is the age at which you may need to start shopping for larger shoes. Muscles, tendons and ligaments in the fee weaken with age causing your bones and the rest of your feet to spread out .
- 250,000 is the number of glands in your feet. (FYI they can secrete up to half a pint of sweat daily)
4. Your Smile – Research shows
- A big grin makes your face more memorable than a neutral expression does.
- Feedback sent to the brain by uplifted facial muscles and that includes a fake smile can ease anxiety.
- From a psychological perspective, a person who is smiling appears more trustworthy than a person who is either frowning or holding a neutral expression.
- According to Shawn Achor, the author of The Happiness Advantage, by making smiling a part of our everyday practice, we help our brains create happiness loops that encourage more positive-thinking patterns.
- according to biochemist and artist Sondra Barrett. In her book, Secrets of Your Cells, Barrett explains how cells can distinguish between safety and danger, find and repair problems and create an overall sense of balance within the body.
5. Plants know then they are being eaten. There are certain plants like nasturtiums that emit toxins as a defense mechanism in response to the sounds of a caterpillars chewing – even when the sound is played as a recording . Who knows this discovery may someday help reduce the use of man-made pesticides.
- The French population yearly consumption of butter is around 18lbs per person. Amazing isn’t it considering it has one of the lowest numbers of heart problems.
2. Even before we are born we yawn. Studies have shown that even 11 week old Fetus yawns. The activity of yawning is said to be rejuvenating the brain.
3. Most pilots and copilots on major airlines are not allowed to eat the same food – to avoid the possibility of food poisoning sickening the entire flight crew. Also the risk of being killed in a plane crash for the average American is 1 in 11 million. The risk of being killed in a car accident is 1 in 5,000.
4. Some trees emit chemicals that attract enemies of their enemies. – Trees may look passive and helpless, but they’re savvier than they seem. Not only can they produce chemicals to combat leaf-eating insects, for instance, but some also send airborne chemical signals to each other, apparently warning nearby trees to prepare for an insect attack. Research has shown that a wide range of trees and other plants become more resistant to insects after receiving these signals.
Trees’ airborne signals can even convey information outside the plant kingdom. Some have been shown to attract predators and parasites that kill the insects, essentially letting an embattled tree call for backup. Research has mainly focused on chemicals that attract other arthropods, but as a 2013 study found, apple trees under attack by caterpillars release chemicals that attract caterpillar-eating birds.
5. Our feet are the home to about a quarter of all the bones in our bodies – There are 26 bones in each foot—one less than in each hand. When we’re born, those bones are mostly cartilage. The bones in our feet only completely harden around age 21.
Bert feared his wife Peg wasn’t hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid.
Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.
The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.
“Here’s what you do,” said the doctor, “stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”
That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.” Then in a normal tone he asks, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”
So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Peg, what’s for dinner?”
Still no response.
Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”
Again, he gets no response.
So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. “Honey, what’s for dinner?”
Again there is no response.
So he walks right up behind her. “Peg, what’s for dinner?”
(I just love this!)
“Dammit, Bert, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!”
We don’t run around in bare feet enough. We are either in our running shoes or off to work in our work shoes.The benefits of going bare are enormous and we need to do more of it. Earthing with the ground have so many health benefits that we are so not aware of.
I have read about this for years but never passed on the information till I read it on the Dr Axes website who I have great respect for his information. He confirms the information from many health guru’s.
I found this article on a website called http://news2matters.com/4996395-16011312.
Often when we are massaging our feet we don’t realize what organs we are stimulating and I thought this was a good diagram to show you where the pressure points are. Often if you are not feeling the best massaging these pressure points will give you an idea of what is happening in your body. Usually the area that is the problem will show up as a tender spot on your foot.
Try it and see and you will probably be impressed with the result as well as having a good night sleep.
Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. Massage can be applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device.
We can easily say that one of the best massages is the feet massage. Some parts of our feet are connected with different organs in the human body. Make sure you massage your feet every night before going to bed, and we guarantee you that you will feel these positive effects:
This is also from another site which actually names the pressure points. The site is Health and Love page
This looks so much fun
