How to learn being more grateful and why you should do it.

As you may have realized I am writing positive posts for the new year. Everyone has new year resolutions. Things they want to improve or do better. So here is another one. It is said that being grateful has tremendous health benefits. Are you grateful? Do you know why it is good to be grateful? It is a sure fact that in life we both find a lack and an abundance. 


We tend to see what we don't have. Yet we forget what we have in life. Yes we tend to see what we are missing and forget what we already have. On this I recall a quote I once saw. "I cried because I had no shoes till I saw someone who had no legs." I think this quote tells alot. 

The physical benefits of being grateful


  • Improved immune system
  • Blood pressure is lowered
  • Feeling more refreshed when waking up 
  • Sleep better 
  • Taking better care of yourself and your health



The psychological benefits of being grateful


  • You will feel more positive
  • Alive awake and alert
  • You will experience more please, joy, happiness and be more optimistic


The social benefits of being grateful


  • You will find you are more outgoing
  • You will find you more forgiving
  • Won't feel as lonely or depressed



Consider keeping a gratitude journal

Every day remember something that you are grateful for during the day. It helps you to realize what you can be grateful for. The idea is that instead of doing to become grateful. Consider what you went through. Reflect on the challenges. This way you will be able to embrace who you are.
to being.

Consider these questions


  • What did I do for....
  • What did I get from...
  • Did I cause any difficulty or troubles....


Doing this will help you to see people differently and from a different perspective. You will also realize you dont take them for granted. A lot of us do that and don't even realize it.

Use your senses. Smell look and touch. Taste and see. Feel. Doing this will help you experience gratitude. 
Consider promising to yourself to be more grateful. If you do that it is more likely that you will do it.
 Consider what you say. People who are grateful don't talk the same way as the ungrateful person. You become what you think. Yes if you think of good and positive things. You become more grateful.
 Smile at others. Say thanks. This also helps you to trigger gratitude in your life.

These are just a few ways we can train our brain to be more grateful. It will improve our happiness and levels of joy. While at the same time we will become more aware of every precious moment.

I hope this article helped you. I know I learned a few things that I have to consider in my life. Please share so others can benefit from it too. If you have any questions comments or suggestions. Please feel free to comment below or contact us.

The secret to happiness

You ever looked at a family? Or a couple. Or just people in general and think they look so happy. What is their secret? I know if we are not happy we tend to wonder what is the secret to happiness. We all experience times that we are unhappy. But today I want to give some advice on realizing the secret to happiness. It isnt as complicated as it looks.


1. Don't look for a specific outcome to an event.


It is life after all. Even with the best preparation and planning. There is still no guarantee that it will turn out as you hope. If we expect a specific outcome we lose out on our happiness.  Then we become over obsessed or we feel miserable.


2. Discover your view of success and happiness according to you.


No two people are alike. The same can be said about our outlook on life. Or what we define as success. If we follow other people's opinion of happiness or success. If we are everything for others. We tend to lose ourselves in the process. We forget we are different and unique. Losing out on our own special gifts. Yes we all have unique traits that should be seen by the world. It can be considered out ultimate gift to the world.


3. Commit completely to what makes you happy.

I will start with a quote from Mahatma Gandhi. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” So we have to be fully committed to what makes us happy instead of settling for less. We tend to do that. We tell ourselves just this once. End result is once became many times and unless you are real and honest towards yourself you will always struggle to be happy. Once you are fully committed to what makes you happy. You will find that you don't need the will power to continue. Learn to live proactively instead of reactively.

4. Be grateful for what you have right now.

In life there is many things we have. There is also many things we don't have. Once we realize we dont need to be focused on what is missing. But remember the wonderful things we do have in life. Our views change. Right now as read this. You can think of your loved ones. Your friends and family who enrich your life. Your work or even admire nature. Even your health is a blessing.

5. Don't leave for tomorrow what you can do today

As mentioned in the previous post. Live in the moment. Life changes. What is today may not be tomorrow. So appreciate the moment while it is with you. Realize what is important for your happiness and live for that. Happiness is about accepting and embracing the now. You ever saw quotes like You will me when I am gone? Yes that is life. So accept the moment and see the beauty of it.

6. Instead of going for what is good go for what is best.


Here I want to recall a conversation my mother and an uncle had. My mother said :Half a glass is better than an empty one" (Speaking about an opportunity). Now comes the reply from my uncle. "Why accept the half glass? Why not consider the full glass instead?" That is the the beauty of realizing the difference between good and what is best. Do you ever find yourself in this situation? My mother often speaks about it. So it is something that I too remember. There may not be many things you will consider as best. But when you realize what you want and where you want to go in life. You will see the difference between good and best opportunities.

7. Do you play it safe?

I think many people do this. People that are happy tend to move away from their comfort zone.  Life is about growing. We never stop learning. If you do step away from your comfort zone you will discover you are more aware of the moment. Life isn't about playing safe. It is about experiencing every moment. Realizing the beauty that life has. Yes there is lots of sadness. But how will you discover the delight of happiness if you don't experience sadness? Only then will you realize the value of being happy.

These are a few insightful ways we can change our thinking and realize the beauty of happiness. Not every moment will be happy. But every moment of happiness will matter. It is always good to remember that. 

I hope this article helps you discover happiness. If you have any questions or comments feel free to comment below or contact us. Please share so others can discover happiness too.

Learning to live life with contentment

We approach a new year. We make promises and commitments to ourselves. But how many of us consider learning to be more content? Yet we all desire it in our daily lives. Dont we? At the end of the day what we did matters. Not to others but to each one of us. So today I want to discuss how we can learn to be more content in our lives. It will take honest in depth soul searching from your side.


1 Consider what is important.

Remeber what is important to you. What is it that you want to do? How do you want to spend your time. What exactly is it that you want to accomplish?

2. Consider the commitments you make.

Do you find that your life is just to busy? That you try doing everything while ending up exhausted in the process? Then start by accepting that you can not do everything. Leave the less important commitments and focus on the more important commitments. 

3. Learn to do less every day
Learn to leave time after each appointment.  Dont try make appointments back to back. If you do that you end up more stressed and you will feel rushed. You will end up doing less than you planned and you wont feel good at the end of the day. By leaving time between each appointment you will be able to be more focused and relaxed.

4. Consider leaving many things from your to do list.

Learn to simplify your to do list just down to the essentials. By doing this you will be able to slow down feeling more relaxed.  Slow down and enjoy each task you take on. It is good to focus on the task no matter what it is. Also it is good to pay attention to each task you want to take on.  

5. Live in the moment

It may seem easy to do but you may find it is challenging. So remind yourself to live in the moment. Unless of course ot means pain. That isn't an option and nothing to be enjoyed. 

6. Focus on each task

What ever it is you are doing . Make sure it is one thing at a time.  If driving enjoy the journey. Take the time to enjoy the journey. Don't be rushed to reach your destination.

7. Remove stress from your life
Find out what cause tension and stress in your life and try to eliminate them. Just don't do anything. Yes. Make time for you. It is your time to recover from your day and what ever caused stress. This is the time you use to find your balance again.

8. Learn to focus on the present moment. 
Do things that you find pleasurable. Don't delay on things that make you feel it is all worth it. Make the time now and stop thinking maybe later. Time waits for no one.

These are suggestions that can make us feel content. At the end of the day when you are relaxing and getting ready to sleep. What you feel and think matters. Living life rushing means you lose out on the beauty of the moment. The thing to remember you don't get the moment back again. 

I hope this article helps everyone including me. If you have any suggestions or comments feel free to comment below or contact us. Please share so others can also know how to learn being content and appreciate the beauty of life.

Consider fat loss instead of weight loss and see effective results

If you are one of the millions that makes a commitment to lose weight as a new year's resolution. You probably did lots of research. What adds to weight gain and what helps you lose weight. Some way are debatable and some are just plain a risk for your health. As many may have realized. So today I am telling you the way to lose weight and gain muscle. So as the image says we will discuss fat loss as an effective way to be healthy.


1. Leave your scale 

First thing to know is that your scale doesn't recognise the difference between fat and muscle. If you start exercising you will find you gain weight. Yes it may be distressing to many. But at the same time you will find you lose inches. Now that is the idea of weight loss isnt it?

2. Consider the amount of calories you take in

Our bodies are created wonderful. But if you don't know what you doing you can actually kick in starvation mode if you cut calories completely. It is a survival mechanism that we are created with. So losing inches will become more difficult. The secret is to consider smaller amounts of calories. Meaning smaller portions and you will find your body will burn those unwanted fats at a increased rate.

3. Smaller portions matter

As mentioned before considering smaller portions (6) instead of 2 or 3 big meals is another way to lose weight. This way your body will be able to give the much needed nutrients where it is needed while at the same time you will lose those inches. 

4. Eat more healthy fats

I can hear some thinking but the idea is to lose fat why should we now eat fats. Doesnt that mean we will gain more weight? No when you consider good fats actually helps you to lose weight. No it doesnt mean I just told you to go out and have junk foods. As said consider healthy fats. Such as olive oil, egg yolks and especially fats that is rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Better explained as polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats.

5. Protein intake matters

If you increase your protein intake you will help your body to increase its metabolic rate. So you maintain muscle while losing fat. Actually by increasing your protein intake you will discover your body will burn more calories. 

6. Remember to cut down on carbohydrates

The one thing everyone will agree on is that limiting carbohydrates matter when you want to lose weight and gain muscle. The best type of carbohydrates should be from vegetables and oatmeal. While it is vital to limit sugar and starches. It is advised that you should eat carbohydrates in the morning and close to the time you will be exercising.

7. High intensity exercise

 You had to know this one would be added as a successful way to lose fat and gain muscle. It is very important to remember warm up exercises. If you know that you aren't really the exercising type and you not in the best shape for high intensity exercise then consider a low intensity exercise or cardio exercises. You can consult your doctor or physician before doing this.

8. Weight training
If you consider resistance training you will discover it helps lose body fat in a variety of ways. It is also a safe way to ensure that you lose fats instead of muscle. If it happened it would mean your metabolic rate would slow down and your efforts will become much more difficult to gain muscle while losing fat.

These are just a few ways that will help you lose fat while at the same time gain muscle. It will take commitment and effort from you. But only you will feel good with the results when you see the difference. So as the new year is closing in on us. Why not make a healthy body and life your goal? Your body will be thanking you for it. Remember the secret to weight loss actually means losing body fat.

Step by step instructions to create your own dotted flower nail art design

I haven't done any nail art tutorials in a while. So I do think it is about time. Ladies, this one is for you. We always think doing nail art designs must be difficult. But it is so wrong. Starting of with a easy nail art idea is always good. So this post is for the ladies who isnt afraid to try something new. 
It is a sure fact that hands always gets noticed. So why not try something different and see if it is what you can do.

The possibilities are endless when experimienting with nail art.So with that in mind I am sharing another great idea. If you ever thought making flowers on nails is difficult. With this tutorial you will be amazed at the result. 

Items needed.

Dotting tool. 
Or if you don't have that you can use a toothpick. 
Striping brush.
You will also need 3 colours of your preferred nail polish. 
Here hot pink, white and silver nail polish was used.

Method.

To create the flower start of making 5 dots in circular motion. Create a second set of dots. Now pull the polish gently to the centre to change the dots to petals.  
Two thin stripes were created with the base nail colour.
Then small dots were added around the flowers and along the stripes in the same colour as the flowers. 
Last a stripe was added  below top stripe and a dot was added in middle of each flower using third colour. Please refer to the picture as it shows the steps one by one. It makes it easier.

Step by step instructions.

  • 1.Start by applying your complete nail the color you prefer. Here hot pink was used.
  • 2. Now take the second nail polish and create dots with the second nail polish colour. Remember this will be the flowers.) 
  • Must be in a circular motion.
  • 3. Now you create a second set of set of dots in a circular motion. 
  • 4. Leave it for 45 seconds. Use the toothpick and from the centre of each dot pull to the centre of the circle. By doing this you create the flower.
  • 5. Using a striper brush you can now take the first color polish (hot pink) and create two small thin lines. 
  • 6 Now with the toothpick you create small dots along the side of the thin lines (white was used here again). But remember must be same colour as the flowers. 
  • 7. Create small dots on both sides of the flowers. (Again white was used here) As seen on the image.
  • 8. Here silver nail polish was used to create the last stripe. Create the stripe underneath the top thin stripe you made. As well as the middle of the dotted circles. So this will be the third colour.

I have to admit I absolutely love this design. You dont have to use the colors used here. But it gives a great idea how it would look using these colors. I hope you find this article helpful and that you are inspired to create your own design on your nails. Or for someone else.

How to know if someone on line is interested

Here I want to share the on line answer to know if someone is interested in you.  As life becomes more technology based. We spend hours on the Internet using our favorite chatting platforms. So I want to show how to know if someone on line in interested in you.. Especially with social sites like Twitter Facebook and Google+ . Please know I am also sharing warnings and advice. As social sites are filled with those bad types of people too


If the person is on a website that doesn't really allow them to tell much about themselves. That is a clear way to know he or she isn't interested in you. But websites like Facebook Twitter and others a person can talk more about himself or herself. The person will be sending you pictures of himself/herself. But will make sure it is good looking pictures. Please note if the person sends many pictures that means the person is just trying to impress you. Does he or she ask you questions? How many siblings do you have? What is your IQ? That is just trying to get to know you. Not being nosy. (Iam still working on believing it though) But always remember if the person gets too personal you don't have to answer or respond. Some times the intention is to find out how perfect you are. 

Now comes the other part. Does the person ask you for inappropriate pictures? Yes then there is no interest in you. Sorry but it is true. The person is just looking for someone that will do what they asks. No real interest in you. There is a difference between talking about yourself and bragging. Does the person brag? Then again the person is just trying to impress you again. If they wants to meet you somewhere. Make sure it doesn't mean the bedroom. The person is the same as the loser mentioned above. Be smart and wise. 

Then some warnings. Never send a picture of yourself unless the person does that first. Never meet someone without letting a loved one know where you will be and more details. If you are threatened. Then it is important to remove ban or block. Or best to report the person to the social website. 

I hope this article cleared up whether someone is really interested or not. Someone on line is interested in you. Also to know when to know a person isn't interested. Feel free to comment or suggest future articles. Or even contact us to ask a question

Keeping your children safe

It is that time of the year. Everything is more excited and lots busier. Festive season around the corner. Shopping and planning started. Everyone feeling more festive. So with that in mind I am writing this post. Yes it is very serious. No mistakes can be allowed. So what am I talking about?

As things get busier we tend to neglect where our kids are. Yes our most precious gifts from God.
It takes a moment to lose them. So my words. Watch them when going somewhere. Hold them close to you. Keep an eye on them. Even when going to places where its very busy and excitement everywhere. 


Be alert. Rather be overprotective and your children is around you, than not realizing the dangers. It always happens to others? Well. Always remember for other people you are the other person. It can happen to you. So always be focused on your kids. Life changed. Rules changed. Dangers has became a reality. This isnt written to make anyone worry. No this is written to help parents and guardians. To be more aware of where your kids are. Creating awareness is very powerful and life changing.

Going somewhere where there is lots of people? Those people you want to protect your kids from. They may be there too. So be mindful of that. I have a saying. It takes one second for life to change. Yes just one second. I some times feel amazed at how neglectful parents can be. I think the right word is unaware. Not neglectful. Most arent aware how quickly things can change. There are so many who watch their kids and it is wonderful. But there is also many that believe nothing bad can happen to them or their kids.

Remember it takes only a second for life to change. Not even more needed. Be aware and teach your children. Todays society changed. Is it wrong to be fully alert when it comes to your children? Especially when they are younger and rely on you to keep them safe. As the parent you are responsible to keep them safe.    

This is something I am very concerned about. That is why I am writing this. 
Please share this so others can see it too.
You never know how it can change someone's life.

5 natural home remedies for tooth abscess that works

Today I want to discuss home remedies for tooth abscess. You may think it isnt serious. But is very serious and life threatening if not treated. So why is that? Because its an infection that can get into the bloodstream


Symptoms tooth abscess

  • Tooth aches that is persistent
  • Ear neck and jaw pain on the side where the tooth is aching
  • Sensitive to temperatures, hot or cold
  • Tooth that is discolored
  • Swelling on your face or jaw
  • Pain if you chew
Now comes the home remedies. These are effective and helps. But even I have to say that you should remember if it is severe and you have breathing difficulties. See a dentist as fast as possible. Do not delay.

Garlic
This is one of natures most potent cures against a variety of illnesses and cures many things. Because it fights infection and inflammation. 
You can chew raw garlic or apply the juice on the affected area.

Clove oil
It is a super anti fungal product because it can destroy infections as well as treat gum problems. It can even remove infections. 
You can gently brush your teeth and then massage the clove oil on your gums. ( not too much) Remember work gently. Or it will create the worst pain possible all over again. You can also chew cloves.  


Salt water rinse.
This one I think is known by many. But do note that this method will not give immediate relief. It takes a few times to see the difference as well as pain relief. Salt is effective because it stops the infection from spreading as well as give pain relief and fight infection and inflammation. 
Take a teaspoon of salt (plain salt or epsom salt) with a glass of warm water. Now rinse your mouth as you would with mouthwash. Do as many times as needed. 

 Apple cider vinegar
Raw organic apple cider vinegar helps to disinfects and helps to reduce swelling
Rinse your mouth with a tablespoon apple cider vinegar. Do this 2 or 3 times every day or as needed. Or you can drink a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a glass of water. Two times a day. 
Apple cider vinegar disinfects and reduces swelling.

Baking soda
Baking soda works because its naturally drains the abscess.
Start by mixing half teaspoon salt and baking soda.
Now take a cloth that is damp and place it on the mixture you made. Place it between your cheek and the area that has the abscess. Leave it there from 3 up to 5 hours. Or you can rinse your mouth with baking soda. It is 1 teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water.  

Please note
If you have a tooth abcess it isnt just something that goes away. As the bacterial infection can spread through your body. Affecting your heart and brain as well. So for best results consult your dentist. Always remember good oral health. Eat healthy and avoid sugary drinks. 

From personal experience I can say that one of my relatives suffered from tooth abscess and almost died. So please do not waste time by thinking it isnt important. It is an infection that can infect your body and not just a tooth or your mouth.

I hope this article helped you. If you have any comments or questions feel free to contact us. Or comment below. Please share so others can benefit from it too.

This is why you should start to drink water if you havent started yet

Theoretically what happens when you drink more water? Let's say 3 liters a day. 
It is said that if you drink enough water you wont suffer from colds or flue. Some would actually recommend it. Others will say appearance of skin improves. Some say that they find they are energized. Unnecessary snacking stops as three liters of water doesn't make you feel hungry. Others will say they find that they are hungrier than usual. Some will swear by it that it helps you lose weight


So what is the benefits of drinking water then
  • Weight loss
  • Fights wrinkles
  • Headaches and dizziness stops
  • Clear skin
  • Fight infections
  • Helps you exercise more efficient
  • Energy booster
  •  Helps the heart work more efficiently
  • Keeps you regular 
If you feel you want to improve your immune system as well as have some flavorful water that has fruits in. Just click here.

Tips to help you drink more water
  • Start with a glass of water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach
  • Always have a bottle of water close by
  • Eat foods that has high water content
  • Use a flavor if you don't like the taste of water 
  • Use a timer or alarm to remind you every time you should drink water
  • Some will suggest drinking water through a straw
For healthy ideas to help you drink flavored water please click here. Not only is it healthy and delicious but it isn't full of sugar.   

Water is very important for the body. It keeps us hydrated. Is a natural detox as it gets rid of the toxins. But as with many things too much water can be dangerous too. I confess use an app that reminds me to drink water. But I don't rely on it telling me. I stay with my goal and drink water. 

 Weight loss
For weight loss many will tell you drink warm water with the juice of one lemon. Others add two garlic pieces to the warm lemon water. It improves your metabolic rate and get your body burning fats faster. 

Now I started drinking three liters of water a day. I have my one liter bottle with me where ever I go. It is summer and hot. Strange how easy drinking three liters of water is then. Have I seen differences? I can say that it does help with weight loss. If you drink water your skin looks well hydrated. Many skin problems clear up when drinking water. Your skin becomes clear. But I never had any skin problems. So that is the opinion of a dear friend.

Update
It has been about a month since I started. As I started drinking water I started noticing that my skin has improved. That starts within one week. Not that I ever had skin problems but it looks better still. Improved younger clear radiant. These are a few I can describe what happened. I can say you will lose weight if you drink the needed amount of water. Not that it was a reason that I started drinking water. I started because I want to live well and healthy. Now if I don't drink water I get thirsty for water, where in the beginning I struggled to drink 3 liters. Now it seems my body wants the water.
