The Language of Love


 “The sincerity of husband is known during the sickness of his wife.

 The sincerity of wife is known during difficult financial situation of the husband.

 The true love of the children is known during the old age of the parents.

 The true nature of siblings is known during the distribution of inheritance.

 The sincerity of friends is known during hard times.

 The true relatives are known when one is far from his country or lonely or sick.

 True love is known when there is no means of benefit.”

Insightful Words


Something To Ponder In Life

"Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.  
And if you really want to see what people are,  
all you have to do is look." - Auggie Pullman, Wonder Book -

"Your Deeds Are Your Monuments"

"It's not enough to be friendly. 
You have to be a friend."

"Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. 
These are the qualities that define us human beings, 
and propel us, on occasion, to greatness."

----- R. J. Palacio, Wonder Book -- Author ----

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.
