Stress Proof Life‏

THE world is made up of two categories of people: those who are stressed and those who are not. Stressful people are those who desire to control life. They like to mould life in the way they wish it to be. They are focused only on themselves. Those who have no stress are those who accept what life offers them without complaints. Their focus is about what they can do for others. 

We are merely a bio-machine as long as we believe we are mind and body. The purpose of human life is to transcend the mind and ascend to a higher state of consciousness. In that state we are truly in the divinity that we descended from. Until we reach that state of unity with what we truly are, we are in turmoil. Stress or tension can be identified as this turmoil, this confusion between our true nature and what we pretend, struggle and strive to become.

The reasons for stress in one person does not necessarily cause stress in another. Someone said that the reverse ofstressed reads asdesserts! Nowadays, talking about stress and offering solutions that work temporarily at best is a huge business.

Rather than fixing what is wrong within, people try fighting or dissolving stress by manipulating the field of outside circumstances. How long can you run? From what will you run away?

Stress becomes an inevitable part of life because we feel it is connected to the fast world outside of us. We feel there can be no life without what we termstress. The truth is, stress is just our own mind-bodys response to what happens outside of us. It is not the disturbance outside that creates trouble, tension and stress. It is the disturbance inside that does it.

Stress can be avoided by changing yourself. You can make yourself stress-proof. This is very simple. Choose not to be affected by what happens outside you. This is not impractical. It is your conditioning that influences you to get affected by what happens to you through events that are beyond your control. Nothing is inherently good or bad except what we judge them to be.

Drop your judgment about yourself, about the people around you and about the situations. You will get freedom from stress. You experience stress when you flow against the current, not when you flow with it. You lose yourself when you flow with the current. It helps you reach the restful mind state from which you can witness events around you without being touched by them. You really have nothing to lose by trying, except your stress! Be Blissful!

Beautiful Anecdote‏ – Inspiring Story

I was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80s arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00.

I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On examining it I saw it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors and got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.

While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there f or a while! As she is a victim of Alzheimer’s disease.

As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.

I was surprised and asked him, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’

He smiled as he patted my hand and said, ‘She doesn’t know me but I still know who she is.’ I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm and  thought, ‘That is the kind of love I want in my life. True love is neither physical nor romantic.

True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.

Peace is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank. The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

I hope you share this with someone you care about, I just did. Life isn’t about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain.

Health Tips for Men

Have you ever seen a couple together and thought, He must be taking his mom out to lunch-only to find that the couple is married? Its a fact: mens and womens skin age differently.

Testosterone causes men to have thicker skin, which means that it tends to sag and wrinkle less and is a more effective barrier against environmental irritants and bacteria. Not only do women have thinner skin, but their oil glands produce slightly less oil than mens, which means they have less �natural moisturizer. Men usually shave their faces, which exfoliates the dead cells and lessens the appearance of wrinkles. On the down side, for many men shaving is an abrasive experience and can account for the roughening of the skin along the jaw line and cheeks.Regardless of the inherent advantages that men have when it comes to their skin, a daily skin care regime can work wonders to maintain a vigorous, youthful appearance (that testosterone doesnot last forever, guys). Skin care for men is remarkably similar to that for women. You will want to clean your skin every day, apply toner and moisturize your skin. And always use sun block, at least SPF 15.

Protect Your Skin

Sun is damaging to the appearance and health of your skin, and even those of you who spend a total of five minutes in the sun per day-getting in and out of your car, for instance-will want to heed the following tips. Always use an SPF 15 sunscreen and apply it everywhere the suns rays might touch you: ears, the back of your neck, and bald areas of your scalp. If youre sweating or swimming, apply it at least once an hour. Wear tightly-woven clothing to prevent the sun from penetrating the fabric and getting to your skin.

Sunburns

If that week-long beach volleyball tournament has left you with sun-reddened, throbbing, blistered skin, there are a few things you can do to lessen your discomfort. Apply aloe vera to burned areas to moisturize and promote healing; chamomile steeped in water can help to relieve the sting; calamine lotion will lessen the itching; cool compresses, baths, and showers will sooth your skin, and adding vinegar or cooked oatmeal to your bath water will reduce the sting. Starchy, liquefied raw potatoes applied directly to the sunburned areas will also lessen the pain, but make sure that you wait until the mixture dries completely before you rinse it off to reap the full benefits.

Acne

Acne is a problem for many men. Thick skin and active oil glands can cause everything from the occasional blemish to full-blown acne. Mens acne treatment is similar to womens, but the products tend to be a little more concentrated. Our Baking Soda Scrub recipe (below) is non-irritating and will sooth and gently exfoliate your skin. For other tips and recipes to treat acne, go to Acne Prone Skin Care.

Baking Soda Scrub

Wet your face with warm water. Apply 1 tbsp. baking soda to dampened skin, massaging gently but thoroughly all over the face (including behind the ears). Rinse carefully removing all the baking soda, and repeat the process. Dry your face, apply toner and sun block.

Anger & love has no limits – Inspiring Story

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year old son picked a stone & scratched lines on the side of the car.

In anger, the man took the child’s hand & hit it many times, not realizing he was using an iron wrench.
At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw his father…. with painful eyes he asked ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’
The man was very hurt and speechless, he went back to car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions…… sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches ……….. the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide….

Anger and Love have NO LIMIT – choose the latter to have a beautiful & lovely life….

THINGS are meant to be USED and PEOPLE are to be LOVED, ..but the problem of today’s world is that…

People are used. & Things are loved!!! 

Gujarahi Funeral… [fun]

Gujarathi Funeral … Excellent one.

 A family in Gujarat was puzzled when the coffin of their dead mother  (Baa) arrived from the US. It was sent by one of the daughters.

 The dead body was very tightly squeezed inside the coffin, with no space left in it when they opened the lid; they found a letter on top
addressed to her brothers and sisters: Dear Chandrakantbhai, Arvindbhai, Smitaben and Varsha,
 
I am sending Baa’s body to you, since it was her wish that she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home in GUJARAT.
Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leave is consumed. You will find inside the coffin, under Baa’s body, cans of cheese,
10 packets of Tobleron chocolates and 8 packets of Badam (Almond) please divide these among all of you. On Baa’s feet you will find a new pair of Reebok shoes (size 10) for Mohan. There are also 2 pairs of shoes for Radha’s and Lakshmi’s sons. Hope the sizes are correct.
 
Baa is wearing 6 American T-Shirts. The large size is for Mohan.

Just distribute the rest among yourselves.

The 2 new Jeans that Baa is wearing are for the boys.
The Swiss watch that Reema wanted is on Baa’s left wrist.
Shanta masi, Baa is wearing the necklace, earrings and ring that you asked for. Please take them off her.

The 6 white cotton socks that Baa is wearing must be divided among my nephews.
Please distribute all these fairly.

Love Smita.
