Cheerful and Wishful Wednesday: Kindness Pictures And Words of Reflection

CARE!

It is so easy to find gloom and doom stories around the web, but try to find positive and cheerful news, I dare you, it takes a long time. But it’s worth the effort!

I found this GREAT contest about kindness and compassion picture taking contest. If you don’t need the cash you can donate it later. After all, competing and sharing awesome photos that show kindness, love, and tender care is what the world needs now…it is what WE all NEED now!

Research has shown that viewing images of peace, kindness, and compassion has a dramatic impact on a person’s happiness and wellbeing – and that’s why photographers from all over the world are now being asked to share their kindest photos.

Every day, people are exposed to negative images, stories, and experiences,” says David Fryburg, founder of Envision Kindness. “We know that this exposure is stressful to the viewer—it causes anger, anxiety, depression, and can affect behavior, disconnecting people from one another.

“To help counterbalance the negative, let’s share diverse, positive images. We know that these images have great power to bring out joy, gratitude, optimism, love, and compassion.”

Superfood Term Is It Just A Marketing Strategy To Sell?

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”

ITALIAN FRUIT PARFAIT LIP BALM

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.

Wasting Your Life Away? Be Happy Now!

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.

motivation inspiration dr martha castro noriega mexico tijuana america california los angeles

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.

motivation inspiration dr martha castro noriega mexico tijuana america california los angeles

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!

motivation inspiration dr martha castro noriega mexico tijuana america california los angeles

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 Mysterious Blogger said it differently but I liked it so much: “The present is an instant lost”

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!

Inspiration Monday: Depression Getting Rid of Negative Thoughts Part 2

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.

Milton Erickson

happiness motivation inspiration dra martha castro

“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.”
Mark Twain

happiness motivation inspiration dra martha castro

“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.”

Kahlil Gibran

“Being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect, means you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.
