Words to inspire the belief that we have all we need to be the change we wish to see.

I love you too

I saw a meme on social media last week. Jenny Nordbak wrote, “My three year old said goodnight to all of us tonight and then in the dark I heard her little voice say, ‘Goodnight myself. I love you. [pause] I love you too.’ Don’t let anyone take that from you little one.”

What an innocent example of self-love. How do we lose it as we grow older? When does the story we tell ourselves about ourselves become less empathetic? When does it start to comment on how we look, how successful we are, what we do and don’t have? Continue reading

For our brain to thrive

I read an article by author Benjamin P. Hardy this week and he said we need four things every day for our brain to thrive.  Nutrition, oxygen, information and love.

He said we have to eat foods that fuel us and cut out the things that make us feel rotten.  Fill up on nuts, greens, berries, fish and dark chocolate.  And cut down or eliminate sugar, alcohol and white flour.

He said our brain needs three times more oxygen than our muscles and the best way to give it more oxygen is to exercise.  Whether that means you run, walk, skip, plant, lift or bike… do something.  Every day.  Just move.

Your brain is also a muscle that needs to be worked.  And it needs a daily dose of new information.  So change your scenery, the people you interact with, the books you read.  Give your brain a reason to find new connections.  Remain curious.  Ask questions.  Discuss things outside your comfort zone.  Change your mind.

And finally love.  It can be from a partner, family, friends, children or pets.  That unconditional feeling of acceptance and validation.  It is oxygen for the soul.

So let’s keep these four things in mind each and every day.  To thrive and not just survive.  To live our best life.

 

Negative and positive ions

There are negative and positive ions all around us.  And in fact, the negative ions are better for us.  They are found in the woods and by waterfalls.  Positive ions are not great for us.  They are found in clothes dryers, phones, computers and air pollution.

But the positive and negative will always be there.  We need positive and negative charges to make electricity.  We can go for a walk in nature, but if we want to communicate our inspiration from that walk, it will most likely be done on a computer.  Negative ions and positive ions together again.
