Life's Treasures


NjA Art & Photography

For life's treasures are found within the realm of nature. 

Embrace the warmth of the sun's caress, 

let it invigorate your spirit. 

Plunge into the vast expanse of the Sea, 

its currents whispering tales of distant lands. 

Assimilate the untamed air,

 filled with the essence of freedom and untethered dreams. 

Let nature be your guide, companion, and muse. 

Discover the harmony of existence in its embrace 

as you dance to the universe's rhythm. 

Embrace life with open arms and 

let its wonders unfold in all its blazing beauty.

Let the symphony of nature serenade your soul 

as each note harmonizes with your every heartbeat. 

The whistling wind shall carry away your worries, 

leaving you weightless in its ethereal melody. 

Venture into the lush forests, 

their ancient secrets whispered through the rustling leaves. 

Climb mountains to touch the sky, 

where clouds unravel their atmospheric tales. 

Follow the path of rivers, 

where the water's gentle flow reflects the waning 

and flow of life's journey. 

Seek solace in nature's embrace and 

unlock the profound wisdom it yearns to share.

The Psychology of Color in Fashion: How to Use It to Your Advantage

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to attend a workshop called "Color Me Beautiful" with a group of people my age. The workshop was an excellent chance to learn which colors complemented our skin tones and helped us enhance our style.

The workshop was to empower us to explore our fashion sense and style by understanding which colors suited us best. We learned that some colors, like blue, pink, white, black, green, maroon, and red, could enhance our natural features and bring out our best selves. However, colors like brown could emphasize an individual's eye bags and may not be suitable for everyone.

Overall, the "Color Me Beautiful" workshop was a constructive and meaningful experience that helped us learn more about ourselves and discover which colors suited our skin tones best.

Run To Exit and Pursue Good Health

Under the weather, I am reminded of the ten factors to good health (listed below). I realized I was a bit remiss of items lately, and still, others need my intentionality. Check yours.
1. NUTRITIOUS FOOD. Generally, plant-based food sources are ideal. Avoid all forms of processed food, pork, slow on chicken. Cut on sugar, all forms of sugar. Sugar feeds and extends the life of free radicals in our bodies.
2. WATER. At least 3 liters for females and 5 liters for males daily. Avoid cold water. Room temperature or lukewarm is suitable. Taking 2-4 glasses of water before breakfast is said to help regulate blood pressure. (If you have Kidney issues, consult with your doctor on this)
3. SLEEP. Completing a five cycle of sleep (or 90 mins per cycle) is already good. However, 8-10 hours of sleep is still best recommended. However, it is not just the number of hours of sleep that matters, but the time when we OUGHT to be asleep. We should be asleep by 9 pm. The liver will only detoxify when the person is in deep slumber. And it usually happens between 11 pm - 3 am.
4. EXERCISE. Heart pumping exercise is advised for the oxygen to reach the cellular level. (if you have comorbidity issues, consult with your doctor on this)
5. CLEAN AIR. Go to the beach or a place full of trees at least once a week. Do the breathing exercise--inhale a considerable amount of air and release (exhale) slowly through your mouth.
6. SUNLIGHT. The human body has a built-in vitamin D but gets activated only when exposed to sunlight. So a 10-15 minutes exposure is ideal between 6 am, and 9 am.
7. FAITH IN GOD. It recognizes that you are NOT in control, but God is and will always be. So if things do not go your way or are too much to handle, your heart can rest by faith, trusting God to work things out. And the tension will ease away. Warning: Control-driven people most likely develop stress-related illnesses.
8. FORGIVENESS. Bitterness is poison not just to the soul but also to the physical body. Unforgiveness increases the presence of free radicals. No amount of anti-oxidants could stop the destructive effect of bitterness. On the other hand, when we forgive genuinely, we develop an attitude of humility and thankfulness.
9. CHEERFULNESS. It signals the brain to release more dopamines (happy hormones). And it relaxes the muscles. Cheerfulness is more of an attitude rooted in one's faith in God, not just some fun happenings that emits laughter.
10. BENEVOLENCE. Humans, by default, are selfish. But when we begin to recognize that we are here for a purpose to serve others, we will find meaning in our existence. A case in point is mothers. Notedly, mothers seldom get sick. Nursing and nurturing moms are usually strong and healthy, from childbearing to childrearing. By the grace of God, may His wisdom will fill us every day. May He strengthen us to choose suitable, beneficial, or promote a healthy lifestyle for God's glory. ------- *Note: from my post entitled "RUN TO EXIT AND PURSUE GOOD HEALTH!", "as gathered mainly from the health talks of Dr. Myrna Catibog" and other medical doctors turned naturalists advocates as well as some of my readings.
