[www.keralites.net] 10 PAINFUL TRUTHS , EVERYONE FORGETS TOO SOON

 

10 Painfully Obvious Truths Everyone Forgets Too Soon
You know how you can hear something a hundred times in a hundred different ways before it finally gets through to you? The ten truths listed below fall firmly into that category – life lessons that many of us likely learned years ago, and have been reminded of ever since, but for whatever reason, haven't fully grasped.
This, my friends, is my attempt at helping all of us, myself included, "get it" and "remember it" once and for all…
1. The average human life is relatively short.
We know deep down that life is short, and that death will happen to all of us eventually, and yet we are infinitely surprised when it happens to someone we know. It's like walking up a flight of stairs with a distracted mind, and misjudging the final step.. You expected there to be one more stair than there is, and so you find yourself off balance for a moment, before your mind shifts back to the present moment and how the world really is.
LIVE your life TODAY! Don't ignore death, but don't be afraid of it either. Be afraid of a life you never lived because you were too afraid to take action. Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside you while you're still alive. Be bold. Be courageous. Be scared to death, and then take the next step anyway.
2. You will only ever live the life you create for yourself.
Your life is yours alone. Others can try to persuade you, but they can't decide for you. They can walk with you, but not in your shoes. So make sure the path you decide to walk aligns with your own intuition and desires, and don't be scared to switch paths or pave a new one when it makes sense.
Remember, it's always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don't. Be productive and patient. And realize that patience is not about waiting, but the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard for what you believe in. This is your life, and it is made up entirely of your choices. May your actions speak louder than your words. May your life preach louder than your lips. May your success be your noise in the end.
And if life only teaches you one thing, let it be that taking a passionate leap is always worth it. Even if you have no idea where you're going to land, be brave enough to step up to the edge of the unknown, and listen to your heart. (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the "Passion and Growth" chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)
3. Being busy does NOT mean being productive.
Busyness isn't a virtue, nor is it something to respect. Though we all have seasons of crazy schedules, very few of us have a legitimate need to be busy ALL the time. We simply don't know how to live within our means, prioritize properly, and say no when we should.
Being busy rarely equates to productivity these days. Just take a quick look around. Busy people outnumber productive people by a wide margin. Busy people are rushing all over the place, and running late half of the time. They're heading to work, conferences, meetings, social engagements, etc. They barely have enough free time for family get-togethers and they rarely get enough sleep. Yet, emails are shooting out of their smart phones like machine gun bullets, and their day planners are jammed to the brim with obligations. Their busy schedule gives them an elevated sense of importance. But it's all an illusion. They're like hamsters running on a wheel.
Though being busy can make us feel more alive than anything else for a moment, the sensation is not sustainable long term. We will inevitably, whether tomorrow or on our deathbed, come to wish that we spent less time in the buzz of busyness and more time actually living a purposeful life.
4. Some kind of failure always occurs before success.
Most mistakes are unavoidable. Learn to forgive yourself. It's not a problem to make them. It's only a problem if you never learn from them.
If you're too afraid of failure, you can't possibly do what needs to be done to be successful. The solution to this problem is making friends with failure. You want to know the difference between a master and a beginner? The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried. Behind every great piece of art is a thousand failed attempts to make it, but these attempts are simply never shown to us.
Bottom line: Just because it's not happening now, doesn't mean it never will. Sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. (Read The Success Principles.)
5. Thinking and doing are two very different things.
Success never comes to look for you while you wait around thinking about it.
You are what you do, not what you say you'll do. Knowledge is basically useless without action. Good things don't come to those who wait; they come to those who work on meaningful goals. Ask yourself what's really important and then have the courage to build your life around your answer.
And remember, if you wait until you feel 100% ready to begin, you'll likely be waiting the rest of your life.
6. You don't have to wait for an apology to forgive.
Life gets much easier when you learn to accept all the apologies you never got. The key is to be thankful for every experience – positive or negative. It's taking a step back and saying, "Thank you for the lesson." It's realizing that grudges from the past are a perfect waste of today's happiness, and that holding one is like letting unwanted company live rent free in your head..
Forgiveness is a promise – one you want to keep. When you forgive someone you are making a promise not to hold the unchangeable past against your present self. It has nothing to do with freeing a criminal of his or her crime, and everything to do with freeing yourself of the burden of being an eternal victim.
7. Some people are simply the wrong match for you.
You will only ever be as great as the people you surround yourself with, so be brave enough to let go of those who keep bringing you down. You shouldn't force connections with people who constantly make you feel less than amazing.
If someone makes you feel uncomfortable and insecure every time you're with them, for whatever reason, they're probably not close friend material. If they make you feel like you can't be yourself, or if they make you "less than" in any way, don't pursue a connection with them. If you feel emotionally drained after hanging out with them or get a small hit of anxiety when you are reminded of them, listen to your intuition. There are so many "right people" for you, who energize you and inspire you to be your best self. It makes no sense to force it with people who are the wrong match for you.
8.. It's not other people's job to love you; it's yours.
It's important to be nice to others, but it's even more important to be nice to yourself. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.. So make sure you don't start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don't value you. Know your worth, even if they don't.
Today, let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as incomplete as you think you are. Yes, let someone love you despite all of this, and let that someone be YOU. (Read Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It.)
9. What you own is not who YOU are.
Stuff really is just stuff, and it has absolutely no bearing on who you are as a person. Most of us can make do with much less than we think we need. That's a valuable reminder, especially in a hugely consumer-driven culture that focuses more on material things than meaningful connections and experiences.
You have to create your own culture. Don't watch TV, don't read every fashion magazine, and don't consume too much of the evening news. Find the strength to fill your time with meaningful experiences. The space and time you are occupying at this very moment is LIFE, and if you're worrying about Kim Kardashian or Lebron James or some other famous face, then you are disempowered. You're giving your life away to marketing and media trickery, which is created by big companies to ultimately motivate you to want to dress a certain way, look a certain way, and be a certain way. This is tragic, this kind of thinking. It's all just Hollywood brainwashing. What is real is YOU and your friends and your family, your loves, your highs, your hopes, your plans, your fears, etc.
Too often we're told that we're not important, we're just peripheral to what is. "Get a degree, get a job, get a car, get a house, and keep on getting." And it's sad, because someday you'll wake up and realize you've been tricked. And all you'll want then is to reclaim your mind by getting it out of the hands of the brainwashers who want to turn you into a drone that buys everything that isn't needed to impress everyone that isn't important.
10. Everything changes, every second.
Embrace change and realize it happens for a reason. It won't always be obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.
What you have today may become what you had by tomorrow. You never know. Things change, often spontaneously. People and circumstances come and go. Life doesn't stop for anybody. It moves rapidly and rushes from calm to chaos in a matter of seconds, and happens like this to people every day. It's likely happening to someone nearby right now.
Sometimes the shortest split second in time changes the direction of our lives. A seemingly innocuous decision rattles our whole world like a meteorite striking Earth. Entire lives have been swiveled and flipped upside down, for better or worse, on the strength of an unpredictable event. And these events are always happening.
However good or bad a situation is now, it will change. That's the one thing you can count on. So when life is good, enjoy it. Don't go looking for something better every second. Happiness never comes to those who don't appreciate what they have while they have it.

[www.keralites.net] How To Live Well Into Old Age

 

How to Live Well into Old Age
There's something to look forward to about getting old - contentment and satisfaction increases with age. Research has found that people in their 90s are even happier than people in their 70s. But before you start to celebrate, you need to ensure that you get there. It's never too late to make a new start. Even if you've neglected healthy habits earlier in life, there are still benefits to changing your lifestyle now. You can reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and bone fractures by making smart changes with exercise and by eating healthily.
Use technology to track your habits
When you start making changes, it's useful to have a fuller picture of your health and charting your progress helps give you insight into your progress. You can monitor your exercise with activity monitors and pedometers. You can also log your exercise and food intake with smartphone apps or monitor your blood pressure with a home blood pressure machine.
Wear sunscreen and say goodbye to wrinkles
Using sunscreen daily prevents wrinkles and protects skin from unnecessary aging. The benefits aren't only reaped when starting young, although that doesn't hurt. You can start later in life. Use a product with SPF of 30, minimum.
Adopt a pet
Pets can help fill the void that an empty nest often creates for some people. Studies have shown that people with pets have lower cholesterol, heart diseases and overall visits to the doctor. Having a dog also gives you a reason to go for a daily walk, which is an excellent form of exercise.
Exercise to decrease your chances of Alzheimer's
Exercise can help boost the blood flow to your brain and facilitate the growth of new brain cells. Studies have shown regular exercise in middle age can lessen your risk of memory and cognitive degeneration by 39%. You don't have to enter marathons - 30 minutes of walking, biking or gardening five times a week is more than enough to boost blood flow.
Rediscover sex
Just because you're aging doesn't mean you have to forgo sex. It's important as a form of exercise and for your happiness. With age, the experience might be different, and better - you have more time, fewer interruptions, and you know what you like.
Beware of salt
Blood pressure tends to increase as we age, and sodium is often the cause. Salt is often hidden in food such as packaged or canned foods, bread, and rolls. If you want to combat sodium naturally, eat a banana. Their high potassium content keeps your blood pressure low and helps lessen the effect of sodium in your diet.
Be more selective with your food choices
Because your metabolism slows down with age, you need fewer calories in your diet. This means you have to be more selective about your food and choose foods packed with nutrients. Good choices are leafy green vegetables, fruit or foods fortified with vitamins, such as cereal and milk. It's also advisable to cut down on candy and sugary drinks, as they tend to have lots of empty calories.
Include good fats in your diet
While it's old news that saturated fats wreak havoc on your arteries and heart, it's not as well known that they can damage your memory and concentration. While it's a good idea to cut down on foods saturated in fats (e.g. red meat, butter), it's equally important to add good fats to your diet. Examples are fatty fish, seeds and nuts. These fats have added value for both your heart and brain.
Choose strength-building exercises
A recent study found that regular strength training helped reverse the aging process in muscles in older people. Make sure to include both aerobics and muscle building in your exercise choice.
Be a social butterfly, and volunteer
Studies show that people, who socialize with family and friends, have lower risks of memory problems and generally have sharper minds. Similarly, volunteering has been linked to longevity and lower rates of heart disease. Studies reveal that the earlier you start, the lower your health risks.
Include balance exercise in your life
When choosing a form of exercise consider, Tai Chi or other balance-focused movements. This can help you prevent future falls and injuries. A study found that six months of Tai Chi helped reduce the chances of falling in half.
Engage in learning
Seeking new experiences keeps the mind young and healthy because they help build new pathways in the brain. Try a new language, musical instrument or new hobbies. This can also help you make new friends and expand your options for excitement and happiness.

[www.keralites.net] Recognise Heart Attack Before it happens

 

The main cause of early deaths in the US are heart attacks. The stress of life, coupled with the junk food that we keep consuming, are major reasons why this illness is becoming more common.
Leading
 a healthy lifestyle, with plenty of exercise, and trying to limit your levels of stress can help significantly decrease your risk of heart failure, but another thing that can be just as useful, even lifesaving, is being aware of the symptoms of heart failure a month before it happens.
The following are symptoms that could be warning you of the possibility of a heart attack in a month. If you experience any of these red flags, get yourself to a doctor immediately. Even if it eventually turns out to be something not as serious as a heart attack, isn't it better to be safe than sorry?
Heart Attack - Symptoms - Before it Happens 
1. Fatigue 
When your arteries become narrow, your heart receives a lot less blood than it's used to. As a result, your heart has to work overtime, leaving you feeling tired and drowsy all the time.
2. Shortness of Breath
When your heart is getting less blood than it's used to, your lungs are not going to be getting the oxygen they need. This is because the two systems depend on one another, so if one isn't working up to scratch, the other won't be either. If you are having difficulty breathing it's best to see your doctor as soon as possible, as this could mean that a heart attack is just around the corner.
3. Weakness
When, all of a sudden, your body becomes weak, it's because your blocked arteries are not allowing your blood to circulate properly. Poor circulation will prevent your muscles from getting the oxygen that they need and, as a result, you may feel very weak and may even collapse.
4. Flu or Cold Symptoms
Heart Attack - Symptoms - Before it Happens 
If you experience flu symptoms out of the blue this could be because a heart attack is about to happen in the not-so-distant-future. Many people who have had heart attacks say that they feel like they developed a cold before their attacks.
5. Dizziness and Cold Sweats
Poor circulation will also restrict the blood flow to your brain. This is life threatening in itself, and will at first cause dizziness and clamminess. Do not ignore this!
6. Chest Pressure
If you are experiencing the onset symptoms of a heart attack, chances are you have also been experiencing a discomfort in your chest - whether it's minor pain or a built-up pressure. This discomfort will gradually increase until the heart attack itself happens.

[www.keralites.net] BEAUTIFUL EXPLANATION BY SWAMI VIVEKANANDA

 

Beautiful explanation by Swami Vivekananda:
Explaining the meaning of 'Association'. He said:
"The rain drop from the sky: if it is caught in hands, it is pure enough for drinking. If it falls in a gutter, its value drops so much that it can't be used even for washing the feet. If it falls on hot surface, it perishes. If it falls on lotus leaf, it shines like a pearl and finally, if it falls on oyster, it becomes a pearl. The drop is same, but its existence & worth depend on with whom it associates."
Always be associated with people who are good at heart.
