Wealth

…is living pay cheque to pay cheque for most.

The desire to earn more or to live beyond your means can get us in trouble.

Quenching this desire is a skill worth acquiring ASAP.

Look around, can you spend five minutes a day with yourself to sort out these crazy moods, impulses to live in a fantasy or just abandoning ourselves at the most inappropriate times?

There are some habits or ideas that may help us live for better or worse, pay cheque to pay cheque.

What is the best habit you have going for you?

I need sleep, I try to get eight hours a night.

I have improved my sleep over the last year by concentrating on it and doing my best to improve it.

They say sleep not only keeps you healthy, but it does a lot more.

Building good habits keep me ready and willing to work to live pay check to pay check.

In this sense, I think I’m doing the best I can do.

But I believe there are better ways to live, and better habits I can learn to use to find a more stable lifestyle.

Good luck with your wealth, whatever way you do it, living pay check to pay check may not be satisfactory, but it’s not a bad way to live.

  • living with ourselves regardless of the outcomes.
  • I suggest being what we believe.
  • being willing to improve our health or to heal.
  • being aware and accepting ourselves is part of that package deal.
  • in this sense, it is best to heal for ourselves, without hoping for unrealistic outcomes.
  • sort of like being you, with no strings attached.
  • but along with illness there is pain and suffering, which is not so easy to accept.
  • it is worth learning to live day to day or second to second with pain.
  • pain management is a skill we can all learn.
  • best wishes with your health.

Does Drinking Water Help?

Before you read the excellent article on drinking water and how to set up a schedule, let me convince you to do it.

I am a big believer in good habits, but some work better than most.

By setting up a schedule for almost anything, you are probably more likely to do it or try it.

I have spent years drinking the other kinds of beverages to excess because I never had a good drinking water habit.

Not only does water have many benefits like loosing weight and flushing out toxins in the body,

but to do it right, you need to learn to do all the good habits that make water the ‘icing on the cake’.

Drinking eight glasses of water a day, only becomes manageable when you can maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Otherwise, you will not like the taste or enjoy drinking the amount of water that brings all the benefits.

Considering that water helps maintain and regulate the human body or any other living thing on the planet, it is a pretty worth while thing to look into on your own.

The other thing about good habits is the need for internal motivation,which means you need to get to know yourself and find out what works for you.

If this does not get you drinking more clean healthy water, read the article on the link below.

Good luck, good life!

The Neurological Need For Sleep

How the body is regulated is far from a coherent form of understanding, but it is clear that we need sleep, nutrients,exercise, cleaning of all major systems and proper levels of resources to maintain the body and mind or and soul.

Without some or all of the above we breakdown through fatigue, we rust and self destruct through diseases.

Sleep restores energy levels, completes repairs and cleans and disposed of garbage in the body.

A healthy functional body does more to optimize and correct mistakes.

To go without regular sleep is a form of great harm.

Perception Of Hell On Earth

The infinite varieties of hell are subject to the individual, groups and society at large.

But there is no place like home.

We all, carry a shadow which take a life time to befriend.

We dance around our hell by acting it out in real time and place with all those people and everything that is found on hell on earth.

For many, hell is just a metaphor for our bad self.

And for many more it is a reality found in their day to day affairs.

Most of us attempt to maintain our mental health but find hell on earth when we lapse as a consequence.

This is why it is important to make ‘the good life’ a priority and to befriend our hellish aspect of ourselves.

There is an abundance of creativity we use to create hell on earth and we can use this creativity to find peace and the ‘good life’.

The challenge is to embrace our Jungian shadow and make him our best friend.

A Trip For Your Mental Health

An altered state of consciousness is scattered through out our day.

Some people regulate their mental health with a day off.

Others, do it in less obvious ways:  go for coffee, go for a run, stay inside on a rainy day, go out at night, do exercise or a combo of all the above.

To lose our mental health can seem outrageous.

Generally, we go see our GP who will refer us to a mental health specialist.

In the hospital emergency, we may feel we are loosing our minds, or may do harm to ourselves or others.

At this crisis level, we are sent to the emergency and become temporarily secured for further treatment.

If someone wants to confine us, it is for a good reason, and we are released on our own or with some restrictions.

It is frightening to loose control with a mental health problem, but rarely is it so chronic that we need to be in long term treatment.

Today, a new kind of therapy with psychedelics are being explored and tested by our best science and institutions.

Perhaps, we will have a pill and a therapist to ‘take us on a trip’ to relieve our mental stress or problem.

Until then, it is important to become educated on how to prevent and maintain our mental health.

It is good to plan for a mental health appointment with your GP, learn about going to the emergency when having a severe mental health problem, and to stay informed about our mental health.

We already keep journals and diaries, talk to friends and family and we can ‘google it’.

There is probably more we can do to maintain our mental health.
