The reason For Stress

Very true. Had to think about that for a while as one does when Eckhart  has profound words. Thinking is good we don’t do enough of it. I mean constructive thinking. We are entertained by so many things we never actually sit and think about creative  ideas any more. I think I speak for a lot of us.

  1. Stress – 62% of workers think their social media use can cause stress and affect their performance. 1 in 5 workers experience stress after receiving  a friend request from their boss. Spending time on social media can take time and energy away from work, and that can cause stress. I would have thought that solution would have been easy,  don’t spend time on social media while at work

 

2. Viagra can make you color blind – This is not a worry for normal doses. Taking too much can affect the cones of the eyes that help you see color. One case as example is that a 31-year-old man saw re for nearly a year.

 

3. Over 53 drugs interact with Grapefruit juice – Grapefruit contains a chemical that can affect how medicines are absorbed. eg too much statins or too little antihistamines of what you need and can have harmful consequences.

 

4. Don’t follow-up your pills with mouth wash – some antibiotics can react negatively  with alcohol which is an ingredient of mouth wash. Metronildazole given for dental infections, taken in conjunction with alcohol may cause stomach pains, nausea, headaches. flushing and sometimes vomiting.

5.  Dont lie down for about an hour after taking tablets – It slows down the pill’s ability to reach the stomach.

Reduce Stress Naturally

 

how-to-relieve-stress-naturally-techniques-for-relaxation

There are times when the stress in your life takes your breath away.  Your mind scrambles and you are unable to think or take action in a practical, calm way. You can’t always go to the beach for a beautiful quiet place or under a beautiful tree or pasture sometime you are in traffic, in a hotel room, somewhere that is not so aesthetically beautiful. You need to take action just where you are.

Two things I do:

1. Stop just sit still, or stand still count to 10 – Just be still. (thats what I call an Oh Shit! moment)

2. Breathe – Don’t panic,  Take four deep deep breaths before you do anything. This is a good practice when someone has upset you and you need to do this before you reply. It will help you to stop saying something you may regret later.

Here are some suggested ways to reduce stress, naturally: 

  • Give your mind a break from information overload. We live in a world that includes too many forms of stimuli, like television, radio, cell phones and the Internet. Make a sincere effort to get away from this by turning them off when not needed. We all need time in the day to shut down the noise. Be silent and just listen. Make a time before the family wake up. I find that 5am is a good time for me for those night owls maybe once everyone is in bed shut that tv off and just sit in silence for even a couple of minutes to start increase the time as the weeks go by. You will find your sleep will be more restful and your energy levels will increase. Always have a full glass of filtered water before you go to bed and when you rise. Going to bed hydrated will allow that good night sleep that is so essential to our bodies. 
  • Start meditating. Find a quiet spot in your home or office and learn mindful meditation techniques to clear the mind of all the day’s stresses. Learn to listen to your body by deeply breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth, making note of your heartbeat and the sensations of your body.
  • Allow positive thoughts to replace negative ones. Focus on the good things in your life and let those things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things dissipate. By paying attention to the positives, the negatives won’t seem as powerful in your life. Before you go to sleep write down 5 things that you are grateful for that has happened in that day. I have a note book by my bed so that it reminds me to do this. Believe me it makes a difference.
  • Some time in the morning or evening  get outside and take a brisk walk, ride a bike or go for a run around your community. Bring extra Kangen Water® to keep hydrated during exercise. Taking in the fresh air and clean water will have a naturally refreshing effect on your spirit. Good time to go for a walk hand in hand with your spouse and or kids.

Day 22 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

DONE! Day 22 – My work is done. Hopefully this small effort has made anyone who has been watching any one of the last 22 days, aware of the traumas that our veterans suffer while away and on their return home. So let us all be compassionate and helpful in anyway we can. Donation would be good at ‘Getheadstrong.org
Mind you I must add this was the second take, I actually did 44 pushups as my camera man cut my head out of the picture in the first video. I was breathing a little heavy in the second take.

_hz

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Mitch King 
to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.
You can make donations to assist in the rehabilitation of our veterans with PTSD on the website of ‘Getheadstrong.org

Day 3 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness for PTSD

Day 3

Just got back from the gym so energy level a bit low especially when I had to do this twice because the first time the wrong button got pushed  and was not filming, LOL not.

Today I nominate my friend Bron Hay to take the challenge.

2.What a Gosh Heart is?

tumblr_mxtc6lDIJ41r0lhi8o1_500

They take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.

Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor–a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it–and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.

Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this– first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts–for years.

The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place.

This scaffold of connective tissue–called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance–can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.

This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart–one that won’t be rejected–can be grown.

4. 85% of people use music to reduce their daily emotional stress.

To incorporate music into a busy life, try playing CDs in the car, or put the radio on when in the bath or shower. Take portable music with you when walking the dog, or put the stereo on instead of the TV.

Singing (or shouting) along can also be a great release of tension.  Calming music before bedtime promotes peace and relaxation and helps to induce sleep.

  • Music’s form and structure can bring order and security to disabled and distressed children. It encourages coordination and communication, so improves their quality of life.
  • Listening to music on headphones reduces stress and anxiety in hospital patients before and after surgery.
  • Music can help reduce both the sensation and distress of both chronic pain and postoperative pain.
  • Listening to music can relieve depression and increase self-esteem ratings in elderly people.
  • Making music can reduce burnout and improve mood among nursing students.
  • Music therapy significantly reduces emotional distress and boosts quality of life among adult cancer patients.
