New Study : Drink Water Only When Thirsty

Introduction

Many studies have shown that human body and blood comprise about 70% and 71% water. Recently, there is a popular conception stating the recommendation of eight glasses of water a day, but many people see it as fallacy; thereby find it very difficult to achieve. Though, water is essential for body functions, preventing many health conditions and enhances overall body performance. However, there has been no global consensus on the amount of water to be consumed per day. It has been observed that many unhealthy drinks have taken the place of water especially when one is feeling thirsty. This is yet a new study that clears the air on why you should drink water when feeling thirsty. Continue reading “New Study : Drink Water Only When Thirsty”

Satisfy Your Inner Craving

“The body craves material satisfaction. More, more, more, and more. We’re never satisfied. We never have enough. We always want more. We are trying to satisfy an inner emptiness, an inner craving. We’re trying to satisfy it with endless material consumption. But this is not the answer—this is to accept that we are the body, but it does not lead to happiness.” This simple but sublime truth was put forward by Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda, a world-renowned yoga spiritual teacher, during a video based on happiness.

Jagad Guru went on to say that “this drive, this desire for more sense flashes—more and more sense gratification—is a very big problem in third world countries. Everybody’s identifying ‘I am the body. Get more sense flashes. I’ll be happy. Therefore, I have got to go to those places where I’m going to get more sense gratification, where I’m going to get more sense enjoyment. Obviously, I can’t stay where I am. There’s nothing here, nothing’s happening here.’”

The Death of Happiness, Real and Apparent

No work, no reward.

It’s an age old saying that no one pays attention to anymore. Society needs to realize that it is raising a generation of people that do not understand the simple concept of work vs. reward. The real happiness is harder to attain when there is no work involved in getting it.

As we have learned it is not so much about the destination as it is the getting there, the new generations must learn that just because they live in a world where almost everything is available with minimal effort (except money) this doesn’t mean they should only make the minimal effort. “Happiness” is available in an online order, a home delivery, or a phone call away. But as the bar for happiness is continually lowered via its easier and easier attainability, so the experience of happiness is continually dimmed.

Wrong Place , Wrong Time ?

I was listening to a news reader announcing the tragic death of a young man early that very morning. Even though it was his day off, he had taken the place of his work mate and in the course of the morning had fallen to his death. The news reader concluded the item by saying, ‘He was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Recently a young man was killed by four assailants who initially only wanted to rob him. It was the early hours of the morning and the man in question was at a money machine getting cash for a taxi home. Because it was very unusual for him to be both alone and in a strange part of the city his death was described as, ‘Being in the wrong place at the wrong time.’

A small girl sitting in her bedroom in an inner city somewhere in the United States is killed by cross fire from two warring gangs. Wrong place wrong time. Continue reading “Wrong Place , Wrong Time ?”
