Breathe Deeply

When you provide a generous flow of oxygen into your body, 100 trillion cells become more alive! This enables the four main organs of your body-the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys- to operate and perform better. Your miracle-working bloodstream purifies and cleanses every part of your body.  This helps eliminate toxic wastes as Mother Nature planned, and the fuel and vital oxygen are carried to every cell in your body.  We are designed to eliminate 70% of our toxins through breathing.  If you do not breathe deeply,  you are not ridding your body of toxins.  The more toxic poison you burn up, the more vitality you will create!

With plenty of oxygen your muscles, tendons and joints function smoothly!  Your skin becomes firmer and more resilient and your complexion clearer and more glowing.  You will radiate with greater health and well-being for a longer, healthier life!  When you get more oxygen, you sleep better.  Oxygen is Mother Nature’s great miracle beautifier.

Deep Breathing Promotes a Healthy Body

When you breath deep your brain will be more alert and your nervous system functions better.  You will be free from tension because you can easily take the stresses and pressures in a calmer way.  Your emotions will come under control.  You’ll feel joyous and exuberant.  Many nervous diseases are due to oxygen starvation.  Deep, diaphragmatic breathing tranquilizes jangled nerves, stimulates the brain with clear thinking and more alertness to help solve any life problems and make wise decisions.  It relaxes the body and releases endorphins-natural pain-killers that create a natural high.

The intentional breather enjoys more peace of mind, tranquility and serenity.  You can concentrate better by taking long, slow, deep breaths.  Also, appropriate breathing stimulates brain cells and promotes new brain cell growth.  Oxygen stimulates your brain and logic and intelligence!

Inhale More Oxygen

People who inhale larger amounts of oxygen are happier people.  Super Power Breathing cleanses your body of psychological and physical poisons and gives you more joy and emotional well-being.

With a clean, purified body and an ample supply of oxygen you can enjoy a more youthful, energetic healthful body for a longer life.  Now, close your eyes, relax and take a few minutes to do some slow, deep breathing.

Air is an important energizer.  The more deeply you breathe pure air, the better your chances are for extending your life.  One of the most important of all physical acts is to breath correctly.  The rhythm and depth of breath affects the state of your mind and body health.  Taking deeper breaths will bring in more oxygen.

Many people suffer from poor circulation in various parts of the body, because they don’t get sufficient oxygen to produce a steady blood circulation into their extremities, they have cold hands, feet, noses and ears.  The more oxygen you get into your body, it is better for your circulation, heart, and hands and feet will be warmer.

Habits of Happy People

Habits of Healthy People

Habits of Happy People

For most of us we have many habits that do not require much thought  or discipline.  We wake up and start processes that are routine.  Forming good habits makes things easier, and it is possible to create ones that can increase positive emotions.  Here are some habits of happy people you can incorporate to make you happier and healthier.

  •      Give Thanks.  In his book The Happiness Equation, Neil Pasricha says, “If you can be with simple things, then it will be simple to be happy”.  Train your brain to look for positives instead of negatives.
  •      Say Something Nice. A shift in how you communicate can help you to get in a more positive mindset and create contagious optimism, causing the person you’re speaking with to share something more positive as well.
  •      Limit checking your email to a couple of times a day and deactivate alerts on your cell phone; unplug from all electronics at least 30 minutes before bed.  Choose one day a week to take a complete break from email and social media.  Do something once a day without your phone.
  •    Be Mindful. Stop worrying about the past and worrying about the future.  Mindfulness is being aware of your thought, feelings at the moment.  You can reduce stress and increase positive emotions.  Focus your attention on your breathing and senses, and be fully present in the moment a few times a day.
  • Get Things Done. Start with first things first.  If you’re feeling overwhelmed and ineffective about the things you need to accomplish, just take one step today.  If you are paralyzed by your inability to make a decision, remind yourself that often, one choice isn’t that different from another.  Make a decision and move on.
  • Get Some Exercise. Exercise is good for us physically and mentally.  It helps keep weight in check and makes you feel like you are rewarding yourself.  In Happiness  is a Habit, author Michele Phillips says doing something that moves your body every day, but not just for the sake of exercising.  “It will be boring, tedious and you won’t stick to it”, she writes.  Think about doing things you love, such as gardening, hiking, swimming, biking or dancing.  Find a friend to partner with.  Make it fun.
  • Know What Makes You Happy. Take time to reflect on what gives you joy (like your family, hobbies, and interests).
  • Schedule Time for Happiness. If you have an hour free, so you spend it doing something fun?  Or, do you spend it doing housework, or tackling an extra work project?  The latter is a “minor form on insanity”, according to happiness researcher Robert Biswas-Diener, PhD.
  • Socialize, Even with Strangers.  Find little ways to connect with others, including strangers, on a daily basis.  The more you mingle and chat with people around you, the more cheerful and brighter your mood is likely to be.
  • Do Acts of Kindness. When people make it a point to conduct one act of kindness a day, something magical happens… they become happier. Simple acts of kindness such as a compliment, letting someone ahead of you in line, etc. – are contagious and tend to make all those involved feel good.

The best part of habits of  happy people is the feeling of happiness-whether you feel optimism, joy, well-being.personal achievement, or all of the above. People who are in good spirits have a better out-look on life. Generally they eat better, exercise, and sleep better than those who are not.   Positive thoughts and attitudes are able to strengthen your immune system decrease pain and chronic disease, and provide stress relief.
