Our Small Request

We hope you can join us often as we explore the positive elements of creation of which we are all a part. We will do our best to keep you abreast of positive developments in the world. We ask only a small favor: We wish to keep religion and politics out of our work, for they so often lead to misunderstanding. With this, we wish you the brightest day, and we look forward to exploring the wonderment of life with you. For more about this blog, see our side menu.

Life Expectancy

In the past century, life expectancy has risen dramatically. Best of all, our quality of life at “advanced age” has also remarkably improved. A big key to our longevity is our understanding of heart disease. Another big change has been the realization that we can actually take care of ourselves through proper thinking, nutrition, and exercise, thereby avoiding getting sick in the first place. We now have enough information readily available that can show us how better to manage almost ever aspect of our lives, and most importantly, our health. This link will take you to the American Heart Associations site, with an article that focuses on heart health. Taking care of our heart, physically, mentally, and emotionally, is the basis of a fulfilling life.

  1. I totally agree on this. I have recently read a great book by Dr. Deepak Chopra entitled "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind", and he explores this subject intimately. We can live a very long life on this planet with the right frame of mind and the proper care of our bodies, but it's up to each individual to take action and treat the body with respect. The right foods will give life, the wrong foods will take life. And never say "I'm too old" to do this or that, but rather, say, "I need to learn" to do this or that. It is our duty to expand our awareness.
    I encourage everyone to read Dr. Chopra's many critically acclaimed books.
