First I've got to say - Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks!!!!
Did anyone watch Will and Kate’s grand entrance outside the Parliament? The hubby and I did. I loved her maple leaf hat and matching red shoes–very cool! We're 144 today, though much older if you look at our countries history. When I was in Nova Scotia there were towns established in the late 1500's! WOW! Anyway, to celebrate a little of my heritage, I've added some images to my post.
Boost Your Health ~
Most of us are health conscious today. We attempt to eat the proper foods and exercise, both of which are very important to maintain a healthy body. What about your mind?
Another hot topic of discussion with scientists and the medical community is maintaining a healthy brain. And it’s so true, if you keep your mind, body and soul in sync you’ll live, I believe, a long and emotionally prosperous life. Our ancestors knew this. Just as an example, Chi. Chi (pronounced chee and also spelled qi or ch’i) is a life giving energy that unites body, mind and spirit. This is a form of physical and mental exercise incorporated with meditation. The brain is the hub of our body, without it the other organs won’t function, and if our brain is ill the rest of our body and soul suffers with it. The brain is amazing, it can heal the body (mind over matter) and if we ever harness it’s full potential we’d be able to levitate, cross the universe, eradicate disease, overcome our prejudices–the possibilities are endless!
In order to keep your brain happy and help prevent dementia and other diseases like Alzheimer’s, you must exercise it and this is where reading comes in. Reading every day helps to work the little grey cells, it stimulates growth and enhances the memory. In the process we also gain knowledge, improve on our reading, writing, comprehension and vocabulary skills. And, if we continue this daily ritual into the twilight years we’re sure to keep ourselves mental sharp. The brain like our bodies needs stimulation. Puzzles are great, words searches and crosswords! Did you know playing video games once in a while improves on hand, eye and brain coordination? Another great outlet is board games. All these activities encourage your mind to work.
I don’t know about you, but I try to read every day and I don’t care what it is, a news article, a book, whatever I can find. I know what you’re thinking and yes, I do tons of editing and reading of my own material, which is true. But for personal growth and to expand my own imagination, I need to read what others are saying!
BL Morticia is here tomorrow July 2! Have an awesome Friday everyone!
Happy Yaoi Hunting
