Be Inspired

March 4, 2019

Inspiration is something that triggers the flow of ideas, passion, and happiness in everyone. Doing something that constantly inspires you is the best way to live and work. When you do something that keeps you smiling, something that keeps the desire in your heart burning, you cannot help but be happy. When you help others with your time, your energy, or when you give things to other, those too give back a sense of gratitude… gratitude that you were able to make a difference in someone’s life. So if you could find inspiration in your work and share that with others, you will succeed in keeping yourself happy while you make a difference in other people’s lives. That should be how we all wire ourselves. We need to find our purpose. We need to find what we are here to change; whom we were meant to serve; and how we were meant to live. I swear every time my birthday approaches, I turn into this philosophical person that checks and rechecks if I am where I am meant to be; if I am doing what I am meant to do; and if I am truly happy where I am. Sometimes thoughts like these can be...

Have you ever wondered why cats’ eyes always glow at night?

Have you ever wondered why cats’ eyes always glow at night?

February 27, 2019

Have you also wished you had their amazing night vision? Cat’s eyes glow because of a layer in their retina called tapetum lucidum. Unfortunately, humans don’t have this layer. However there might still be hope, an article I once read said that the color of the glow from a cat’s eyes depends on the amount of zinc and riboflavin in the cells of their eyes. Looking at these 2 vitamins, Riboflavin and zinc are actually amazing vitamins for vision, even for humans. Riboflavin or vitamin B2 is one of the Essential vitamins for humans. It helps the body breakdown carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, so the body is able to utilize them better for Energy. A lack in Riboflavin means the possibility of blurred vision, as well as cracked skin, skin rash, anemia, and fatigue. Zinc on th other hand, is an essential mineral used to improve and prevent macular degeneration, night blindness, and cataracts. Aside from those benefits to the eyes, zinc also improves and supports the immune system, the repair and healing ability of the body, and over all health of the different organ Systems. So, let the cat keep reminding us to add Riboflavin and Zinc in...

Have you compromised on your dream?

Have you compromised on your dream?

February 13, 2019

Have you compromised on something you thought at one point you could do, and when things started becoming tough you gave up on it? I did. A few times in my life I thought I could do more, and then all the challenges popped up, and i thought “this is too hard”… and decided it wasn’t worth it. My excuse was that “I was good where I was.” “I was happy with what I had.” And they seemed to be all good reasons. What I failed to see was that the dreams were given to me to pursue a bigger goal, to be able to do bigger things, and be able to impact more lives. It wasn’t gonna be as difficult, I just didn’t want to see and consider all the possibilities. I only saw what I saw and knew what i knew. After meeting amazing business coaches and the #1 wealth creator JT Foxx, and listening to their experiences and advice, my eyes opened up to things I couldn’t see before and processes and solutions I didn’t even consider earlier. So, next time you think a dream you have (or even one you have held on for a...

Chew Your Food For Better Health

Chew Your Food For Better Health

February 11, 2019

Chewing is a crucial part of the digestion process. After your start “salivating”, as you start thinking of food, your body creates the digestive enzymes to breakdown food. Then when you actually eat, chewing is the next process and the one that will help your body breakdown your food effectively. You see chewing chops, cuts, grinds, and macerates food, before it goes into the esophagus and the other smooth muscles cells involved in the digestion process. The chewing process is part of what is called the mechanical phase of digestion. Without the proper breakdown of the food in this phase, it becomes more difficult for the rest of the system to digest this food effectively. After all teeth are only in the mouth and not in our gut. When the food goes through the stoma and the intestines, it is churned and mixed thoroughly with the digestive enzymes. Food that goes through this process that isn’t broken down well by the teeth, tend to cause bloating, because undigested food, encourages bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine. This accumulation of bacteria can cause gas build-up, as well as diarrhea and/or constipation. So, next time you put food in your mouth,...
