The truth is that many of these foods have been around for centuries. Their health benefits are backed up by science. The only novelty is the term “superfoods,” which is mostly used for marketing purposes.
VEGETABLES, FRUITS, RED MEAT, SALMON, OILS,
These nutritionally high-powered foods are marketed as a possible cure for heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, aging, and even cancer. Even though no official standards exist for the term “superfood,” it shows up in health magazines, blogs, and medical websites. Everyone is talking about the healing benefits of spirulina, acai berries, and chia seeds, and more.
However, this doesn’t mean that superfoods are just a fad. On the contrary – they boast a high nutritional value and exhibit health properties, such as decreased susceptibility to infections, cancer prevention, stronger hair, and nail, improves digestion, and stronger immunity. Other benefits of superfoods include increased energy, younger-looking skin, fat loss, and improved brain function. On top of that, there are no side effects to worry about.
CATCH: For the superfoods also known as healthy nutritious foods, to take full effect in your body you have to eat them everyday, not only once in a while or to be “in a eating healthy fashion”

TAKE: Be happy, eat everything you like: red meat (don’t panic, red meat is good for you), eat the right portions of anything “FOOD”, a well-balanced diet, exercise and you will live a happy healthy long life. Superfood is just a marketing term, it’s not a miracle.
When we learn how to enjoy the moment, we can become calm, focused, and happy. Look deeply, and you will discover that you deserve to be happy regardless of who you are, what you’ve done, or where you’re going.
You deserve to be happy just because you’re alive. Give yourself permission to be happy and at peace at this moment.
WASTING YOUR LIFE AWAY?
Then start living now, breathing now, be absolutely conscious of your living state at every moment of your life, every second.
You waste your life away when you constantly replay the past in your mind, imagining a future that never comes. You end up living every day trying to “live in the future” that will never be present.
We can plan for the future and act according to it. Putting in action our plans with a passion to accomplish our goals, but always living in the present!
Some people say the following words are cliché. In my opinion, they have truth in the message and they are worth mentioning them:
Yesterday is history
Tomorrow is a mystery
But today is a gift
That is why it is called the present
The past is a foreign world
The present is an instant lost
The future is a projected illusion
So why not just live in
The Here and Now!
59 years ago I was born. This year I am going to celebrate non-galore since next year will be my 60th one 😮 Honestly, I don’t feel my physical age. I feel a lot younger in many ways: many goals to achieve, patients to attend, lives to save, plans to follow, deals to conquer. Happiness and cheerfulness run in my blood.
So, I welcome many years to come for me from now on, and many years to keep on blogging! I am going to tell you a secret: I really love blogging.
Don’t let yourself wallow in negative thoughts. Not only is that unproductive, but it’ll only make you feel worse. Negative self-talk is something that most of us experience from time to time, and it comes in many forms. It also creates significant stress, not only to us but to those around us if we’re not careful.
By letting go instead of pushing, your mind opens up and stays more relaxed. This also keeps your mind open to receive different thoughts. In fact, it may take a little while for a newer, more positive thought to take root, especially if you have a long-standing habit of negative thinking. Have some patience as you gradually introduce your brain to more positive thinking.
“If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.”
“Life will bring you pain all by itself. Your responsibility is to create joy.”
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see in truth that you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
