How To Live In Peace And Harmony

The first thing to learn is to discover what you truly love to do in life which may take many years to realize and can change as time goes by.

Learn to listen to your inner voice again and again.

Dale clarity to the process that you think of things (understand “so that” what happens to you) and be aware of what you are going through for that is your reality. Meditate on this so you can focus your energy.

Be aware of what is called “intuition” and is nothing to channel your ownself.

Search inside yourself for stimuli that motivate you to act. 

Take a few minutes a day, to feel something as simple as breathing, take time to calm thoughts , to talk to God who is in your inner being.

Soon you will know that we are not alone. Every human being, is accompanied by his spiritual guide or angel, part of the same being.

From that point you can start to listen and learn to channel the good energies.

So learn to focus your awareness and trust in yourself better and generate a lot of inner peace and joy that takes you away from everything negative.

The goal is not to secure or to predict the future, but know that this can change with our free will. We conduct our lives and decide whether or face we put aside the obstacles we face, having God as a guide.

God is the absolute good, nothing bad could come from Him.

What we build is a state of positive perception, manufactured by our consciousness and share this vision with God.

Fear causes only darkness, loneliness, restlessness and feeds the other polarity of existence.

We are born into the light and over the years we forget who we are, where we started and where we go. So you should feel the importance for you to recognize your identity.

Only daily exercise, prayer and meditation fill us with Love, Peace and Harmony.

You should be aware that free will allows everyone to choose as you want to feel.

In our universe, there are many more possibilities than we can possibly imagine and one is part of it.

Connect with God as your guide

Accept and review your life experience, and give thanks for what you have experienced.

God is much more than he have shown us. When we let go of the fear of God, which was instilled in us, we feel His love and dialogue flows.

Liberate also the fear of death. Ask God for the courage and serenity to accept the game when it is time that God has chosen for us.

Do not feel guilty for nonexistent things or things that have led others who want us to govern.

Learn from every experience you live

When you can think of situations you do not like, once it has passed the moment of anger, and when you begin to understand the situation, try not to judge and not be judged. Ask yourself what should I learn in this regard that happened to me or that is happening to me? Why did this happen?… And if it continues to anger yourself, repeat several times the words, “I’m sorry and I love you, I’m sorry and I love you” (It is a Hawaiian technique, implemented by Dr. Hew Len Ihaleaka). Because that being is showing you something, crossed your path just because you want to experience that. There are no coincidences.

Remember that if you do not find an answer to a particular situation, you can generate a fault. That is why you should concentrate on finding. For what? Every experience you live.

When a being generates fear, it is because it has not been able to face their own truth, it does not connect with the positive, not cultivate peace and harmony.

Often, fear leads to a better understanding of himself. Because this brings us to resolve and clarify our own life plan, and that is when the connection with God is experienced, leaving the feeling of fear is nothing but give strength to the negative, not to perform certain actions.

Deliver and trust in God your problems for it is not for you solve. Ask serenity and calmness to address and wisdom in the time to act.

We generate fear what we do not know and this leads only to devaluation.

People are paralyzed with fear, and can be manipulated easily.

Humans have two basic feelings that we manifest daily: fear and love. When we connect with fear, we are separated from God.

Practice this exercise repeating these words: “Fear, I admit, but you sit in the back seat, because now I will manage.” With this you are taking control and fear disappears.

 

Healthy Lifestyle: Beneficial For All

As we read in the publication online MedicalXpress, patients with diabetes should have a healthy lifestyle, just like the people who do not have the disease life. A new study suggests that lifestyle for people with diabetes should not be different from that of the general population, although people with diabetes may benefit more from some aspects of this type of lifestyle, such as nutrition.

The research has been led by the Dr. Diewertje Sluik, Department of Epidemiology, German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke, Nuthetal, Germany, and colleagues. In their work they investigated whether the associations between lifestyle factors and the risk of mortality were different between people with and without diabetes.

The study involved almost 7,000 patients with diabetes and more than 250,000 without diabetes, indicating the huge selected sample and thus the certainty of the conclusions. The risk factors studied were body mass index, waist / height, more than 25 groups of different foods, alcohol consumption, physical activity in leisure time and snuff relationship.

As expected, the researchers found that overall mortality was 62% greater in people with diabetes compared with those without. The complications of the disease end up being the main cause of these deaths.

Always arguments were also confirmed. For example intake of fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, oil, pasta, chicken and vegetables were associated with a lower mortality risk and intake of butter and margarine reflect the opposite. All this both in patients with diabetes and patients without diabetes. However the health benefits of a healthy diet were greatest in patients with diabetes, who had better controls than in those who did not have diabetes.

As for lifestyle, no differences between people with and without diabetes in the study including aspects such as alcohol consumption, physical activity and smoking were detected. The authors say: “It seems that the intake of certain food groups is more beneficial (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, pasta, chicken, vegetable oil) or detrimental (soda, butter, margarine, cakes, cookies) with respect the risk of mortality in people with diabetes. This may indicate that people with diabetes may benefit more from a healthy diet than people without diabetes. However, in terms of lifestyle recommendations for a healthy diet should be similar for people with or without diabetes.

 

Valentine’s Menu: Mistakes To Avoid

We know you have a perfect place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The perfect location, decor, tableware and menu, say everything just goes well virtually. However, often when we think what we will prepare, cannot be undone when things go wrong. To help you with the right menu for Valentine’s Day, down below are the mistakes you should avoid.

What good is a roast beef, or however much we might like a plate of lasagna with bechamel, it does not seem the most appropriate course for a celebration on a Valentine’s night as we leave too full and sleepy, thus it can ruin the night.

Watch your breath

Maybe a kiss is the most magical things to celebrate a Valentine’s Day. Imagine a decorated a table, a few glasses of wine, candles illuminating the room and two faces are close, then it got ruined by an awful breath!

If you prepare a salad, you should not include onion or garlic (or its variants such as shallot, chives, etc) or you can expect a persistent breath in your mouth or your date, to spoil that moment of happiness.

Find out about possible allergies and intolerances

When we go to an exotic restaurant, one of the first questions they ask us when we sit down is if we have allergies or food intolerance, lest we bring food that does not sit well for us. If this year you will surprise your partner preparing Valentine’s dinner, it costs nothing to ask before cooking if there are any foods your date does not like or cannot take.

Imagine that you have decided to prepare a recipe of pie as an appetizer or a flaky pastry filled with custard for dessert and you discover after hours working in the kitchen that your companion is gluten intolerant. Suppose you prepare a dish with cream and your date cannot take lactose or if you have made ​​an Indian or Mexican menu and your partner cannot tolerate spicy dishes.

In addition to making a great effort for nothing, you will feel bad knowing that if you had asked, your Valentine menu would have been a success.

Avoid heavy digestions

A gargantuan dinner, a real feast “to unbutton the pants button” can be a great fun for an occasion like a meal of friends, a birthday or a party of any kind, but is not the most suitable for an evening dedicated to love.

The same applies if the menu includes ingredients that produce gases that make us feel bloated or food that may cause flatulence, that really would ruin any subsequent intimate moment.

It is not the ideal day for a plate of broccoli or cauliflower or other foods with similar effects as they can cause gas and bloating.

Watch your smile

Perhaps the feature that we are most attractive of is our smile . Teeth clean, white and… no bits of food or small pieces of spinach, parsley or mint ruining the moment.

Beware of dishes that include sorts of herbs chopped or dishes like creamed spinach, etc. The color green is the worst when stresses between the incisors who is about to kiss…

Happy Valentine’s Dinner

If you take care of all these details and prepare a light, simple and with good ingredients, then surely the celebration will be a success.

Varieties of high-caloric meals, snacks, sweets are some of the temptations that almost all of us enjoyed last holiday season. As a result, we all gained a remarkable amount of weight.

All these excesses cause a range of nutritional imbalances, which is why January is the most convenient time to get back to good eating habits and follow the tips we propose to start the year in a healthy way:

  • Make it a habit to eat 5 portions of fruits and vegetables during the day. Inserting a piece of fruit or a glass of fresh juice at breakfast will start the day in a healthy manner. As for dessert during dinner and mid morning or afternoon tea, fruits are the best allies. At lunch and dinner, boiled vegetables, fried, mashed or cooked in salads and as a garnish, are essential to balance the daily menu.
  • Exercise is the perfect complement to a healthy diet to keep a healthy lifestyle. We must find engage in a physical activity that is most compatible with our daily routine and avoid “binge” gym that are difficult to maintain over time. Such as taking the stairs instead of taking the elevator, walking instead of taking the car for short trips, bicycling or walking to school or work, and if you are away, down a bus stop before. The active family leisure is a good option to reduce a sedentary lifestyle in the whole family, especially in children.
  • Do not consume unhealthy snacks, so if we cannot resist taking snacks, it is best to consume fresh fruits, as they are the best and healthiest snacks. However, it is recommended that you have 5 meals spread throughout the day: breakfast, mid morning, lunch, snack and dinner.
  • Add in the usual recipes, varieties of fresh vegetables, which are always seasonal, tasty and cheap. With this, you get to maintain a healthy and balanced diet.
  • Water is your best drink. Hydrating your body with lots of water is vital for your health.

We want to help you face the new year with energy and vitality, so always deal with your hunger with fruits and vegetables!

How To Be Productive This 2015

With the start of a new year and the emergence of new aspirations and new projects in our lives, more than ever necessary to revise our work schedules and better time planning should be practiced by about everyone. The goal for this new year in terms of productivity is clear: work less and get more.

Well, perhaps this goal is the same every year. You may be rethinking your schedule and your way of working. We will share with you some considerations you should be taking into account with the reorganization of your daily life so that you can truly fulfill your goals this year.

Work more on what really matters.

Surely here is the key issue. Throughout the day we keep busy doing work and yet we feel that we have not advanced in achieving our goals, why? How can it be that there is no progress even if I have been working all day? The reason: yes, you are working, but with tasks that has a low value. The key is to analyze what are the tasks that provide real value to our objectives. They are usually those tasks that require more effort on our part and which do not draw benefits and immediate gratification but long term.

Remember the Pareto Principle (80/20 Rule): 20% of an action produce 80% of the effect, while the remaining 80% originates only 20% of the effects. This translates into a language that everyone can understand, so what does it mean? It means all activities done throughout the day only require 20% of them and will produce approximately 80% of the effects/results.

Well, if you want to be really productive and not just in appearance, if you want to achieve the goals and dreams you have for 2015, you have to work more on those tasks that really matter.

How to work more on what matters?

The first step is to be clear what really matters and what does not matter (task of little value). To do this, you have to sit in a quiet place and think about the tasks which will lead you to the goals that you have raised this year. Consider the tasks that will mean a real step forward in achieving your objectives. Weigh tasks that are difficult or more inexpensive as more effort and time will be required for them to complete.

The second step is to analyze your day and see what tasks are consuming your time.You have to know what state you are now to implement improvements in the use of your time. It helps if you put it in writing on paper or on your iPad/tab, wherever you want, what matters is that it can be captured somewhere to see it.

Need more time…

Everyone needs more time to do what really matters. Typical is the excuse that “yes, if I know what I have to do, but right now, I do not have enough time.” The reality is that you never have time, you are fooling yourself.  Time is always enough. The important thing is not how long it is but how it is used than is available.

How to buy time for what matters?

Save time on tasks of little value or that contribute nothing to our lives. You have to identify these tasks in your daily life and apply one of the following solutions:

  1. Eliminate those tasks or activities that contribute nothing to your life or even harmful

Get rid of all unnecessary tasks. For example, watching television, spending too much time on Twitter or Facebook. Imagine the amount of time you can save for those tasks that really matter.

  1. Make the tasks of little value in blocks

Do the tasks that are needed to be done all together in the same space of time. Dedicate a particular day or a few hours a day. Not only that you value your time, but such approach will also free your mind from worry of having to do those tasks.

  1. Delegate functions or tasks of little value

Are there tasks you hate doing or are of little value to your work? Find someone (paying or not) who is willing to do them for you. Indeed, you can always find the right man for the job.

Conclusion

Remember: It is not about working more or harder than last year, but do it in a smarter way. Identify what is going to mean significant in the long run. Be more selective with your idle activity and directly eliminate it, reduce or resolve block tasks of little value.
