Happy is Now…

Thanks to Croeso i Gymru for sharing


“Happiness – not in another place but THIS place. 

Not for another hour, but THIS hour.”

Walt Whitman

Happiness can only be found in the present moment.  There’s no need to wait for it.  Grab the moment NOW! 

That’s what I did when the sun came out on a cold, frosty morning yesterday.

The simple things in life bring the most happiness.

Power of Mindfulness

Comments Off on Power of Mindfulness

Thanks for sharing…

So while looking at different blogs and discussions I found this awesome post on Thought Catalog about how being Mindful can reduce stress. I will summarize and highlight it here, but feel free to check it out for yourself!

Mindfulness is being self-aware and shifts in how we view what is happening and how we react to what is around us. This is what helps us respond in a way with flexibility and tolerance. One of my favorite professors in college taught an Event Management course. One thing we always talked about was how Nothing is a Crisis.

This mantra is phenomenal. Think of times when something was a literal crisis? It is now over, and we gained something from it. Freaking out about something you cannot change just adds more stress to your life. For an example, if there is a snow storm on the day of something you are planning with friends. You do not control the weather, unless you are Storm from the X-Men, so freaking out about that is going to cause more stress in your evening.

Something I truly like, and try to do daily, is have daily time for just silence. This can be done with prayer if you are religious or meditation. Essentially something that can anchor you to the here and now.

The first time I tried meditation it was so difficult to actually control and focus my thoughts. It took me really trying about 3-4 times to start feeling the benefits of it. Now I live for my silence every night before bed.

So give meditation a try, and see if you can find your center to reduce your stress.

Man ‘eaten alive’ by anaconda on wildlife show

Man ‘eaten alive’ by anaconda on wildlife show.

An American television presenter has been “eaten alive” by an anaconda in the Amazon rainforest in a much anticipated documentary by the Discovery Channel.

Paul Rosolie, who describes himself as “Indiana Jones with a green twist”, said the stunt was intended to raise awareness about plummeting species populations in the rainforest.

The 27-year old wore a specially designed carbon fibre suit to protect him from the force of the constriction as well as the snake’s harmful digestive juices.

The suit was fitted with cameras and a voice transmitter, while a cable was attached to his feet in order to pull him out, The Times reports. He was then smeared in pig’s blood in order to make him more appealing to the predator.

Rosolie then allowed a 20-ft long, 250lb snake to constrict him for over an hour, with emergency teams on standby. As the snake began to try and swallow him, he asked his team to rescue him as he could feel his arms “ripping out of their sockets”…
