PETS help you LIVE LONGER, healthier LIVES

Having a dog is associated with a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease or other causes, according to a 2017 study that followed 3.4 million people in Sweden. Researchers studied men and women between the ages of 40 and 80 and followed their health records (and whether they owned a dog) for about a dozen years. The study found that for people who lived alone, owning a dog can decrease their risk of death by 33 percent and their risk of cardiovascular-related death by 36 percent, compared to single people without a pet. Chances of having a heart attack were also…
I believe everyone should meditate. Even you. But if you’re anything like I used to be, you’re totally uninterested. The reason I avoided even trying meditation for so many years was because I didn't think it was a worthwhile practice. I really didn't think there were that many benefits.
10 minute read Despite fat shaming being the #1 tool used to whip people into shape, it's the most harmful tool you can include when trying to lose weight for longer than one summer. The reason - it's destructive? It weakens you! And it shames you! And it's not nice to treat people like that.
I want to share a powerful idea with you. And it's very simple. It goes like this: Stop trying to feel better. Once I realized that—my life changed. Like the total necessity of looking to your own inner wisdom and instincts, rather than looking for a solution in the external environment.   The problem is this: Most of us know what we should do.
Our culture today is neurotically focused on unrealistic expectations: Be content. Be joyful. Be healthier. Be the greatest, better than your friends. Be sexy, smarter, faster, richer, most admired, more creative, more envied, and more popular, more Zen.
Most people aren't aware of this, but everyone owns a psychological immune system. Just like your body's immune system will bring you back to health when you're sick, your psychological immune system will do the same at times when you're feeling frustrated, confused, anxious or sad.

ARE you a SELF-IMPROVEMENT Junkie?

There’s a contradiction with the self-improvement inspiration and it is this: the ultimate goal of all self-improvement is to reach the point where you no longer feel the need to improve yourself.

Why we FAIL to ACHIEVE our GOALS

The New Year is just around the corner and let’s imagine for a moment that you have decided that you want to become rich. Maybe you’re sick of your student loan debt. Maybe you’re sick of paying overdraft charges and eating frozen waffles for dinner every night.

It's too SMALL

No...I'm not talking about your weenie, or your paycheck or the size 5 pants that been hanging in your closet for over a year. I'm talking about your dreams Dreams… we all have them. Or, so we say. Often, we keep our dreams in check because we don’t want to feel dissatisfied. We limit them. We hold back. And we settle for less. What is your dream?

Celebs, Vision Boards And Achieving Dreams

What do Jack Canfield, Oprah, Steve Harvey, Ellen DeGeneres, Katie Perry and many others have in common? They all use vision boards. Celebrities have hopes and dreams, just like us. But these celebs were able to get to megastar status by writing down goals, creating vision boards, and working hard. When Katy Perry was 9 years old, her teacher invited the class to create a vision board. She pasted a picture of Selena holding a Grammy. Fast forward 15 years, Katy was nominated for her first award!

THE MOST significant QUESTION OF your LIFE

Everyone wants to feel good and live an untroubled, happy and easy life, to fall in love and have great sex and relationships, to look great and make lots of cash and be admired and respected and a total badass to the point that people part like the Red Sea when you walk into the room. Everyone would like that — it’s easy to like that.

Why not being SPECIAL will make you HAPPIER

It’s funny; a lot of people who travel to the third-world claim that people are “happier” there. They often follow it up with some trite testimonial about materialism and how we’d all be so much better-off if we learn to live with less. This might be a fallacy. Poor people in developing cultures aren’t happier; they’re just less worried and less stressed out.
