Our best source of the how to of staying eternally young is to watch the young
Toddlers have a lot to teach us about how to stay creative forever.
 
1) THERE IS ALWAYS MORE THAN ONE SOLUTION

The more difficult the problem you need to solve,
the more you need to let yourself go crazy with imagined solutions,
the more improbable, impossible and fanciful the more you will relax,
have fun and just like magic the practical solution will present itself.
 
It is almost as if the only way you can coax sense out of nonsense
is to join in on the nonsense.
Anyone who has had to explain sense to a toddler knows of this technique.

2-CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS

Once the sensible solution has presented itself.
Challenge it. Just like a toddler does.

1) MUESLI

Many people are making the change
from consuming sugary cereals or fatty fried breakfasts
to eating a portion of muesli in the mornings.
This is no surprise, as muesli is often specifically marketed
to the health-conscious crowd.

However, you may be dismayed to learn that the type of muesli
that you can find in most stores is actually quite bad for your body
if you are trying to shed fat or maintain a healthy weight.

There are some muesli mixes which can have up to 500 calories per serving,
can have a high fat content and can contain an unacceptable amount of added sugar.

If you hate the idea of giving up muesli but are committed to eating healthily,
the best thing that you can do is make your own muesli.

HOW TO MAKE HOME-MADE BANANA CHIPS
You can put sliced banana in a food dehydrator or opt to bake banana slices in the oven.
 

BAKED BANANA CHIPS
Preheat the oven to 175-200ºF/80-95ºC.
The low temperature allows a dehydrating effect as opposed to a real baking effect.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or a silicone sheet.
Remove the banana peel.

Slice the bananas into thin slices.
Make sure they're all fairly much the same slice width, to ensure even cooking.

Arrange the slices across the baking sheet in a single layer
and do not allow the slices to touch.

Drizzle freshly squeezed lemon juice over the top of all the banana slices.
This helps to hold back natural blackening and adds a slight tang.

Place the sheet in the oven.

Forward movement is made with small accomplishments

 

Starting today,
1) GIVE UP
Needing the opinions and approval of others to make your decisions.

 
Parents are charged with knowing what is best for their chidden
but all good parents will admit to the angst they suffer
trying to figure out what is best because nobody can know what is best for anyone.
 
Only you know your heart song, what inspires you what it is you need to feel purposeful.
Only you and know you.
Only you know how you are affected by your experiences
 
Even when people are at their most helpful they cannot know what is best for you.
You have to do exactly what’s best for you and your life,
Be who you are and say what you feel
because those who mind do not matter and

Happiness: everyone wants it, yet it seems difficult to define.
 
One thing which comes out of all of the attempts to define it
of all of the people who declare themselves to be happy
and score high on the happiness scale
not one of them has ever defined it as partying until you drop
and getting so wasted that you cannot remember what happened the night before.
 
Some people have a head start on happy
because they were born with what has been called the resilient personality.
The good news is that for the rest of us
there are at least 7 ways we can affect how happy we can be.

Happy people but this one at the top of their list
 
1. MAKE GOOD FRIENDS

The Work life balance experts would have you believe
that we can divvy up the various pieces of our lives

THE REALITY Throw out the scale.
The MAGIC is to be found in RHYTHM

Rhythm is all around us we just have to tap into it.

When is the winter going to end.

Enough already .
Every year no matter how long or how short,
we hear ourselves bemoaning winter.

Constantly watching for a sign that spring has arrived,

constantly being disappointed can sap anyone’s optimism
and set you up for the Winter Blues

If your winter blues are more than the seasonal kind
and you are suffering from a depression which has nothing to do with weather
then seek professional help.

For the rest of us who are just plain grumpy , fed up and not working at our peak
because we are feeling crushed by the weather.
Help is here.

The best antidote to the Winter Weather Blues is action.

Get some fresh air and take a walk outside.
Going from the house to the car, car to the office, office to the car,
