Could Working Less Land You a Promotion?
By Jo Miller, Women's Leadership Coach

One of the greatest career-killing mistakes women make is believing that if they work hard enough, reward and recognition will follow. The problem is that hard work is usually rewarded with more hard work, not necessarily a promotion.

We can't promote you. You're too valuable. After six years as her company's top salesperson, a software sales account manager was disappointed when a younger peer was promoted and became her manager. The newcomer had been with the company six months and had never met his sales quota, but he was popular with the young staff on the team. The sales account manager suspected the executive team did not promote her because they could not afford to lose her significant contribution to the company's revenue. Meanwhile, a person who performed poorly moved up the ladder because his superiors could visualize him as a leader.

You can be passed over for promotion if you are seen as irreplaceable.
A director of IT asked her boss for a promotion, a raise and more challenging work. The boss agreed that she was capable, but he thought it would be too hard to find someone to replace her. The promotion was given to a male colleague who had less experience, but who competed aggressively for the promotion.

Position yourself on the radar for promotion.
What are the factors that can help you attract more responsibility, and not more hard slog?

In 1987, Jomills Henry Braddock II and James M. McPartland published a report on minorities, equal employment opportunities and institutional barriers. Their paper provides valuable insight into how you can position yourself for career advancement that is still relevant today.

Braddock and McPartland wrote that the three types of information considered to be most important by decision makers when identifying candidates for promotion are:

- Performance ratings.
- Internal recommendation.
- Production or sales record.

When deciding who to promote, decision makers look at your workplace results, work output and sales and production records. They also look at qualitative information such as your performance evaluations. But the significant difference can come from subjective information such as word-of-mouth recommendations from other leaders and stakeholders.

Credentials give way to visibility.
A great pedigree and hard work may get you recognized initially, but it won't guarantee advancement.

Early in your career, you will be evaluated largely on credentials. Decision makers will look at factors such as your education or successful performance in your current job. As you move up through the organization, decision makers overlook results and credentials in favor of more subtle interpersonal signals such as trust and working with people they are familiar with. To be considered for promotion, you need to be visible. Show your superiors that you are on their team and that they can count on you.

Hard work alone will not get you on the slate for promotion.
In fact, if you are burying yourself under an immense workload, you may be neglecting to transmit those other vital signals.

Action you can take NOW!
In their 1999 paper "Women and the Leadership Paradigm; Bridging the Gender Gap," Roslin Growe and Paula Montgomery emphasize the fact that work performance makes up only part of the recipe for promotion. Four techniques that you need to be aware of are:

- Be able.
- Be seen as able.
- Know what you want.
- Help others to help you.

To get promoted, show that you understand what your job entails, and be dedicated to those tasks.
Visibly display the competencies that you know will be valued and rewarded. Set career goals, then plan and strategize how you will get there. Let them know you are ready, and expect to move up the ladder. Use mentoring and networking to engage others who can help you.

Hard work alone will not get you promoted. Good work plus visibility will.

Believe it or not, but introverts are one of the most interesting people in this world.

Yes, you may think they are boring and don’t give a damn about you when you meet them at a public event. But once you try to meet them alone and know what they really are, I bet you will fall in love with them in an instant.

After all, they are so much full of mysteries that they have never spoken of in front of the world. And when you get to know all of it, you understand how introverts are just stereotyped by everyone and how they are so much more than just that.

So, if you are planning or already dating an introvert, you will agree to these reasons that say it is the best thing to do.

1. They are good listeners.
Having good listening skills is a talent that not many people have, but introverts are a master at the art of listening. They love to listen to what the other person has to say and only speak when it is required and not for the sake of speaking.

2. They always know what they want.

As introverts spend a lot of alone time, they have a clear understanding of what they actually want in every aspect of life. This comes as a plus for you because if they are with you, it’s something they have clearly wanted and they are not at all doubtful about being with you.
3. They notice details. 
What can be more special than having someone in your life who notices every tiny thing about you? You will be surprised at how they use those tiny details to make you feel more special each time.

4. They are good at advice. 
Since introverts think twice before they speak and they listen more than they talk, they are good at giving advice too. As they take in whatever is going around them, they think through before telling you something.

5. They give you your space.. 
Since introverts want their own space most of the times, they are good at providing the same. Yes, you have to be okay with them leaving a party a bit earlier than you, but you will also have the liberty of staying at the party for as long as you want.

6. They express love differently. 
They don’t go overboard to express their love to you. Rather, they like to keep it low key and more personal. If you love that sort of romance, you are in for huge treats.

7. No unending phone calls. 
They don’t like wasting time on long phone calls while talking about nothing. In fact, they prefer it short and sweet. Or it's better if you text them instead of calling, which gives you your own space wherever you are.

Carpets have occupied pride of place in homes all over the world. The intricate designs, the color, the motifs and the traditional designs of carpets as per various locations have always held the attention of occupants of homes and visitors alike. However, due to the very fact that carpets are at floor levels and depending on the number of footfalls and the location of the carpet, the possibility of collecting dirt and grime is higher. It is important that home owners frequently clean the carpets to maintain the looks as well the appeal.

Professional cleaning of carpets make a huge difference  

With a certain amount of money invested in the carpets, it makes a lot of sense to spend a reasonable amount of money towards getting it cleaned professionally. While home owners may be tempted to try their hand at cleaning the carpets themselves by following a DIY video or instruction, it is important to note that, if handled improperly, carpets can lose their appeal. The fibres of carpets may sometimes be filled with trapped food particles or dirt and grime. These need to be removed with care and cleaned thoroughly rather than using brute force or harsh chemicals. Most of the DIY videos offer instructions about cleaning and endorse a particular product for cleaning. While the results of the cleaning may be actually remarkable, the damage that can be done to the carpet may be considerable.

Proper dusting and cleaning extends life of carpet
The life of a carpet depends on how well it is maintained. With poor maintenance it is highly likely that the carpet will not only lose its appeal, but end up with a shorter lifecycle. Periodic dusting, and ensuring that the carpet’s orientation is turned regularly to balance the weight of furniture or footfalls is necessary. Due to the availability of high quality services for carpet cleaning sutherland residents find it easy to use the services of experienced and reputed services. The agency featured here has a reputation as one of the most reliable, following best practices and processes in cleaning carpets.

Carpets offer a breathtaking appeal to living spaces and it is not uncommon to see families gathered around a carpet and enjoying special moments of togetherness. To fully enjoy those special moments, it is necessary to keep the carpets clean to prevent the accumulation of mites that are likely to cause allergies to residents. And by virtue of being invisible to the human eye, most residents fail to take adequate measure to tackle the problem. With periodic cleaning by a professional, service, it is possible to free the carpets of mites and ensure that homes have a healthy atmosphere.

A lot of care goes into the selection and positioning of a carpet, with many home owners actually matching furniture to go with the centerpiece carpet. With so much of care going into the selection, it is important to ensure that the selection is well maintained with an extended life.

From the book "Dumbing Down our Kids" by Charles Sykes

This is mistakenly attributed to Bill Gates, as a Speech he supposedly gave at Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia, California.

It is actually from the book "Dumbing Down our Kids" by Charles J. Sykes, 1995, and is directed at high school and college graduates.

Rule 1:
Life is not fair - get used to it

Rule 2:
The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself

Rule 3:

You will NOT make $40,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both

Rule 4:
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss

Rule 5:
Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping - they called it opportunity

Rule 6:

If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them

Rule 7:
Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try delousing the closet in your own room

Rule 8:

Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life

Rule 9:
Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time!

Rule 10:
Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs

Rule 11:
Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one

Suppose you can see everything—the universe as super positional waves, consciousness changing waves into energies, energies into particles, particles entangling and interacting instantly at a speed several times faster than light,particlers changing into various elements, into isotopes, into molecules, into matter, into stars,planets,galaxies,entrophy which is reverting matter into molecules, into atoms, into particles, into energy fields, into waves in super position, then how are you going to fix mathematics into this real reality?

Is your 3D seeing, which is limited to the 00.0037% of the reality, as a result of which you first give identities to matter and phenomena, and then do mathematics sufficient? Is there anything constant and unchanging fit to be given an unchanging identity with a number? After the numbing of the gigantic met morphosis, where identities vanish continuously, with numbers, you do addition, substraction, multiplication, division etc---swimming in an ocean of unreality. You ignore the fundamental fact that you live in emotions continuously, and that not even one emotion can be quantified.

After all emotions are the manifestations of breathing,smelling,sensing,perceiving, understanding and feeling in symbiosis with air as the foundation. Winds are fields, which fundamentally are the super positional waves of the universe. Your perception, not merely the 3D misleading identifications of the mind, flows as waves. Is mathematics not fettering your spirit? The word for air in Latin is spirit. You need to inhale the spirit to be spirited. Is the 3D mathematics sufficient to keep track of your spirit or the inhalation and exhalation situation that determines your morale or spirit?

One of the fundamental dictums of Quantum Physics is, that the Universe in super positional waves, changes into particles because of notice by consciousness. Your life is not based on any determinism of nature but completely dependent on your own thoughts and actions. You are not a 3D body at all. You are just a flow of consciousness, with the ability to change the super positional waves of the universe into particles that create the event configurations you desire. What you need is the power of your own will and clarity. If you can see everything, change your 3D seeing into holistic feeling, then you get the power to change your future. What counts is your power to feel. When you can see everything, you cannot see yourself as you see yourself now as a 3D body. You are not a body at all. You are a wave in nature, rippling in changes along with changes and influencing the changes with your conscious notice.

Nature has created you as an entity of feelings and emotions. They are based on nature’s basic operation of your breathing, smelling, sensing, perceiving, understanding, influencing, changing the nature in super positional waves into particles because of your feelings and emotions, which translate into matter at the particle level, because of your un-noticed conscious notice. The disease economics has made your own participation in the Universe by your conscious notice into an inert greed filled lunatic notice. Spiritualism is not Economics or Commerce. Economics and commerce are just the stampedes of greed. The stampede is creating the destruction of nature—land,water,air, life forms,geography,the nuclear balance at the atomic level…,destroying the basic feature of the Universe, conscious notice changing the super positional waves into particles.

If you want to control and direct your future, then you first improve the quality of nature near you, plant trees, allow water to be pure, fight the poisoning of the air, so that you can breathe, smell and sense healthily. There is also the phenomenon of Quantum Entanglement, which means that if anything happens to a particle, it automatically affects its twin which may be billions of light years away at a speed faster than light. Your thoughts and the resulting notice by your conscious notice, have such gigantic cascading effect. Start planting trees, help living forms, improve the quality of conscious notices and build your own future in the configuration you desire.

A doctor is working down their long list of patients, powering through the day, striving to use their skills to get them better. Some of the patients will be follow-ups who they already know, others will be brand new patients, who they are meeting for the first time. Of course, the job of any doctor is first and foremost to heal their patient in whatever way they can. That’s what all the medical school and residency training was all about: to get them to a position where they can safely and competently do this. But the crucial aspect of healthcare which is notoriously under taught, is how to communicate with your patients. That’s most of what any doctor does, and a fundamental universal truth in healthcare, as I’ve written about previously.

We are slowly getting better at this, and it’s being taught more in medical schools, but we still simply don’t think about this anywhere near enough. After physicians graduate and are thrown out onto the medical floors, they quickly realize that it’s the bulk of what practicing medicine is all about. That’s why we need to foster the skills necessary to maximize ones’ communication potential (remember, it’s not only important for success with your patients, but also for success on the career ladder and everything else you do in life). The ability to communicate well is everything. On that note, what could be more important than making a great first impression whenever a doctor meets a patient for the first time? As doctors, it should be our absolute goal to start building a relationship of trust right from that very first meeting with a patient, and get off to a flying start. Because if a patient doesn’t develop that feeling of trust, and yes—also likeability, towards you, you may as well pack up and go home—because that patient will already be thinking about how they can get another doctor. It’s human nature, and we don’t have very long to make a good impression. Did you know, research actually suggests whenever we meet someone for the first time, that judgement about the other person will be formed in only the first few seconds? Yes, about seven seconds to be precise. This happens with anyone, even a random person on the street, but is especially important for a doctor to keep in mind. In those first several seconds, we as humans are primed to judge the other person’s friendliness, cooperation and competence. This happens at an entirely subconscious level, and is believed to go back to caveman dies, even before speech started, when we had to make snap judgements about the other person very quickly. We can debate whether those first impressions are always right or not, but they do get imprinted in our minds, and we all know from our own experiences that it’s very difficult to come back from a bad first impression.

Speaking as somebody who regularly teaches communication skills and has coached a lot of physicians on this, even the most hardened physician is very responsive when they are told (diplomatically of course) that they can do better and improve their skills in this area. Nobody wants to hear that they come across badly when they meet new people!

So for any doctor, what types of things can you do in those first 7 seconds to make a better impression on your patient? Here are just 3:
Facial expression

This is obviously the first thing that someone will notice when they look at you. Few things could be better received than a genuine smile (known as a “Duchenne smile”) and a facial expression that conveys friendliness. Of course, smiling doesn’t come naturally to everyone, but is the most simple thing you can do if you want to appear approachable or trustworthy. The opposite of this would be looking stern, closed off, or worst of all, uninterested in the person in front of you.
Eye contact

Maintain constant eye contact in those first few seconds. Don’t glance at the patient and then look away instantly—whether it’s to look at your chart, a medication hanging from the IV line, to find a chair—or anything else! Without getting into the psychological and scientific reasons why this is important, and I could talk for a very long time on this: just think of it as telling the patient they have your full undivided attention at this low point in their lives.
Body posture and movements

Does your body posture and the way you first greet the patient display an aura of calmness and competence, or does it do something quite opposite? If you are clearly in a rush, hurried or looking tense yourself—your patient will sense that in a second. Even the way you walk into the room, upright and confident versus slouching and hesitant (hopefully very few doctors do that) will get processed in an instant. Your goal is to radiate that you are calm and a good listener.

These are just 3 brief things you can do to make a great first impression that says you are a friendly, caring and competent physician. Even for a highly educated professional like a doctor, you cannot escape the laws of human nature and behavior, and you can have a list of publications as long as your arm—but it will come to naught if you don’t understand how to communicate!

Let’s be realistic, there’s unlikely any amount of teaching or coaching that can make somebody who is a terrible communicator into an outstanding one, or somebody who is un-genuine, more genuine (fortunately this applies to very few people in healthcare). But you can take things up several notches if you want to. My latest teaching series that I am in the process of finalizing is called: “Mastering people and interpersonal skills”. These seminars, also a shortened keynote version, are designed for physicians and medical students, but would actually be the same learning points for any customer service facing professional. The communication skills are applicable everywhere. The reason why I feel so passionately about this topic is that I am somebody who has worked in healthcare systems in 3 different countries (England, Australia and the United States) and have also seen healthcare when relatives have been unwell in a 3rd world country too (India). I am convinced that a huge proportion of the everyday problems and frustrations we face in healthcare are simply due to poor communication. Competence and knowledge is something we are all good at and have reached a certain standard through rigorous training. It’s the so-called “soft skills” that we are not so good at (I’m not a particular fan of that term, because “soft” can also imply un-important). Whether it’s doctors with patients, amongst healthcare staff, or even how administrators communicate with their workforce—we too often forget the simple basics of communication. Ultimately, it’s probably the single most important skill you can have for both career and life success, and also your own personal happiness in whatever you are doing.

As for this communication lesson, start with thinking about the first several seconds you meet someone!

Five Worst-Case Interview Scenarios
By Kate Lorenz, CareerBuilder.com Editor

You thought you were prepared for that interview. But sometimes even the best laid plans can't ward off unexpected disaster. Besides having a getaway car waiting to quickly whisk you away from an awkward situation, there are ways to overcome even the most embarrassing interview situations.

Certified career counselor Susan Guarneri says to keep in mind that you are only human, as are your interviewers, and everyone knows that stuff happens. When the unthinkable happens in an interview, what's most important is how you manage the situation.

Here are some suggestions on how to handle unforeseen interview mishaps.

You're Late

Whether you overslept or your train stalled on the tracks, either way, you know you're going to be late for your interview.

Solution: "If you can see you're going to be late, immediately call ahead and let them know," Guarneri advises. That way you won't keep your interviewer waiting and you give them the chance to call the shots -- squeeze you in for a later appointment or reschedule for another day.

You Forgot Your Résumé Materials

You grabbed your briefcase, but left your portfolio stuffed with your beautifully printed résumés, letters of recommendation and work examples sitting on your kitchen table.

Solution: "This can be easily handled if you planned ahead properly," Guarneri suggests. "Don't rely on just a paper résumé. Have your résumé available online somewhere, such as a blog, personal Web site or in your e-mail. Then it can be instantly retrieved from the interviewer's office."

You Have a Wardrobe Malfunction
Somewhere between your house and the interviewer's office your smartly pressed suit ends up looking stupid. This happened to one of Guarneri's clients who was splashed by a passing cab right outside the building of the company with which he was going to interview.

Solution: Guarneri recommends continuing to your interview and briefly explaining what happened. Almost everyone has had a wardrobe malfunction occur at an inopportune time -- your interviewer will likely be empathetic to your mud speckled trousers.

You Forget the Name of the Person You're Interviewing With
You're nervous during an interview and it's common for your mind to go blank.

Solution: If you didn't write it down on, don't see a nameplate on the desk, or can't read it off of certificates adorning the walls, don't fake it, Guarneri warns. Find an opportune time to ask the interviewer for his or her business card, by saying something like, "Before I forget, could I have one of your business cards?"

The Interviewer is Distracted.
Another of Guarneri's clients entered an interview only to find the interviewer sitting with his head in his hands and didn't even look up when her client entered the room and sat down.

Solution: If they're not listening when you're talking, are they bored? Are they stressed with other projects? "Pick up on the emotional cues the interviewer is delivering," Guarneri says. "Then recognize the situation and get their attention." In this case, her client said, "If this is a really bad time, I can come back." It ended up the interviewer had just found out his dog had died. Although it wasn't the ideal situation, this gave her client, who has a dog, a chance to connect with the interviewer and they both began sharing dog stories. (He ended up getting the job with just that one interview.)

Guarneri says job seekers often stress when something goes wrong in an interview, but how you manage a challenging situation can say a lot about you. She had a client who flew to Buffalo, New York for an interview and was snowed in by a winter storm. He ended up arriving at the interview three days late, with a rumpled suit (the only clothes he had to wear for the three days) and mismatched shoes (he lost his shoes and had to buy new ones at a nearby thrift store). His perseverance and genuine interest in the position -- along with a healthy dose of humor about the whole situation -- landed him the job.

Science is the declaration of independence of the Brain from emotions. All emotions are simply Bias for science and all of them shall be shunned. To achieve that independence, science has been creating machines that do the work of organs, the ideal, the undeclared ideal being to devise a mechanical substitute for every organ. We are all getting mechanized by science.

Emotions are the crystallizations of breathing, smelling, sensing, perceiving, understanding, harmonizing, cooperating, coordinating, rapturing, enjoying, and living -- in symbiosis with nature. Once the human organism could distinguish among thousand different smells and sense and interact on the basis of that versatile smelling. For a mere binary of the Computer the machines could create such a big language. But when the base is one thousand smells, imagine the variety of interactions and emotional contours or waves, in the emotional intelligence and emotional interactions.

The emotions being the results of breathing, they depended or got created by the air. The troposphere essentially is a ocean of emotions. And science wants to banish emotions from observation. Breathing is the participation of a person in the subject matter of study as a ripple of symbiosis in the ever changing waves of the met morphing phenomena of nature. Science shuns participation in and with the subject matter. Science strives to separate the observer from the subject matter under study. The scientist must be a spectator only, a spectator who must observe as a machine without emotions. For the scientist the troposphere is a big disturbance. So he/she invented the Air Conditioning etc, where the air is dictated to blow as per the directions, --- the air incapable of emotions. The air in the AC room is not only controlled the hot air or heat is sent outside into the troposphere. The AC keeps the air inside conditioned and heats up and pollutes the air outside. Imagine the emotional havoc the AC is generating. After all, all emotions are based on breathing. The AC disconnects one from the general flow of emotions of the troposphere and creates heat or the extra movement of molecules outside creating the disturbance at the molecular and ultimately at the atomic level. The AC is creating a big emotional anarchy.

Emotions, the emanations of breathing are not based on the 3D affliction or drawback. The 3D is essentially blindness to the gigantic whole. The scientific or the non emotional outlook is the ultimate foolish outlook. It is ignorant of its own ultimate aim, to remove breathing from observation.

The Surprising Benefits of Running in Water Every Student Should Experience

Water exercise is one of the best methods of keeping fit and enjoying your workouts. It has multiple benefits for your health, such as increased flexibility, better blood circulation, and improved fitness.
A JOSPT study (May 2012) has actually proved that stationary running can release pressure, both at the physical and emotional level.

There are two ways of water running:
· Shallow water running –water goes up to your hips, puts more pressure on legs
· Deep water running – water goes up to your chest, puts more pressure on arms and abs

Over the years, there have been multiple injured athletes who have chosen this method of exercise in order to keep fit or even establish a new personal record. Water running releases tension in your body, and gives you the opportunity to move even when you are sore, hurt, or injured. Here are some surprising benefits of water running and why you should try it.

1. Hypothesis Proved – Less injuries
Compared to land running, water running decreases injure predisposition by 45%.The natural setting will reduce the pain in local muscles or joints by at least 90%. There is no need to stop working out if you are injured anymore.

The JOSPT experiment is one of the most important studies conducted on this field. With the help of
AssignmentHolic writing service, the experimental team chose two groups to make tests on: injured athletes and completely healthy individuals. They selected 11 women and 11 men, and measured the forces that apply to their bodies while they exercise in the water. They had them run at different speeds, so that there was a significant time difference at the end of the experiment. Results have showed that water running decreased potential chest injuries by 50% and potential leg injuries by 40%.

Just like in sport, the real life will bring you experiences which can potentially injure you. Use metaphor of running with fewer injuries right now, while being a student and you’ll know how to take care of yourself properly.

2. Conditioning with No Forces Applied to Your Body
As I was mentioning before, water running does not apply any type of pressure onto your muscles. The water’s buoyancy will reduce the tension in your body, and soon, you will feel like new. Of course, water running should be accompanied by healthy eating and mental strength. But here is the good thing: if you start working on your physical health, the rest will easily come.

You are going to feel healthier and stronger, and therefore, change your eating habits and diet. You’ll feel the need to give up fast-food and enjoy some well-cooked vegetables. Eating healthy and exercising will have an impact on your mind too. A healthy mind can only be part of a healthy body. You’ll solve problems quicker, develop emotionally, and increase your productivity. And then, at the end of the day, you’ll reflect on how water running has indeed had a powerful impact in your life. Good benefits for students, right?

3. Deep Water Running – Really Cool
Running in deep water is another form of releasing tension within your body.
Studies show that chest water running decreases forces applied to your body by almost 50%. When your muscles are not tensioned anymore, your blood circulation starts functioning better. That means an improved blood flow within our bodies. Since everything is connected to the brain, an improved blood circulation also means expanded mind focus, since your brain receives more oxygen.

All this activity will liberate hormones’ activity and endorphins to the brain. That makes us feel euphoric and powerful after a workout. Stretching after water running is also recommended by specialists, since cardio exercises are considered heavy training. When we work out and stretch, we feel good, release pressure and tension, become euphoric, smile, and conquer the world! Water running is great method of exercising even when we are not feeling it.

4. How Does It Help
Water running is beneficial for a good number of reasons: 

· Sharpens our hearing. When we run, we improve circulation throughout our entire body, including our ears. Imagine running in water! 
· Softens our skin.
Research shows that people who run are less exposed to skin cancer; running softens your skin by developing more cells within your body.Besides that, the water in which you run in will expand your habit of staying hydrated (because who doesn’t drink a lot of water after such an intense workout?)
· Beats migraines. No more medication needed, just run in that water!
· Eases anxiety. If you ever feel panicked about something, run – water running will make you feel 100 times stronger, and give you time to think.
· Prevents disease.
Water running is one of the best methods to exercise without injuring yourself. If you are an athlete, a runner, or simply a student who enjoys working out, try this effective method, and see it for yourself. You’ll not only feel better physically, but improve your mental and emotional condition as well.

We are all struck up with the false 3D self identifications and self concepts. But we are part of the ever changing nature, nature automatically subsuming us, while we briefly exist as a ripple. In the name of science, the ripple is trying to erect fetters that separate it from the ocean, with first cutting away the enlightenment, with separated subjects, often drivel and non subjects as subjects, with definitions, scopes, assumptions, limitations and confusions or worse deliberate confusions called obfuscations. All these subjects struggle in the false 3D equations. The urge to be part of nature is called bias and we paralyze real perception, in 3D concepts, by suppressing the basic art urge in us, to participate in the Universe as the Universe.

If you can see everything and if your eyes are not really blind and suffocated in the 00.0037% of the false reality, false because we do not realize that the reality is changing continuously and not the unchanging 3D, and if you change your perception to breathing, smelling, sensing and perceiving, you then experience your reality as the macro body as the Universe.

Now struck up in the false 3D self concept, we have created the I, you, He, She, It, They and in the name of science we remove the emotion or nature content in those identifications. By removing the emotion content as we want to eliminate bias, we ignore the fact that we all breathe and as a result perceive and understand emotionally or with the surrounding air as part of the wind flow, in reality as the ocean of air or ocean of understanding. Our perception is part of the air surrounding us and our understanding is part of the troposphere.

We think that our Brains only do the thinking, that the entire environment does not participate in our perception, and the poor Brain unable to bear the gigantic burden has abandoned the work and surrendered the work to machines.

As machines do not have emotions, and as the mind has divorced the body and nature, now we do economics, that is destroy nature or the Biosphere, by converting nature into a resource.

Tenacity means continuing an effort for an objective, despite every obstacle, failure after failure, continuously taxing the mind with morale boosts. If the objective is a noble mission, then tenacity becomes hormonal, a habit that enables one not to give up. That enabling habit needs emotional reinforcement, which means, breathing, smelling, sensing, perceiving the positive opportunities, reinforcing the enabling hormones and not allowing the mind to do mischief by negative thoughts, analysis.

The problem with the mind is, it can think and analyze, only by suspending the experience and feeling. One can either think or analyze or one can experience and feel, but, one cannot do both at the same time. Continuous thinking, analyzing, revising..., leads to the continuous suspension of the actual effort. It means that the reinforcement which one gets by breathing, sensing, perceiving the positive opportunities..., encounters stumbling blocks, and the removal of the stumbling blocks diverts one away from the main effort. The mind creates often fatigue, while the Amygdala gives positive reinforcements.

Tenacity flows from breathing and often not by analyzing. There are always positive and negative possibilities. Once a decision is taken, analysis must be stopped. Then the gigantic troposphere reinforces, by providing the morale boosting air to breathe, sense the opportunities and embed them in the hormonal communication, making the Amygdala assert.

Gardening is often taken up as a hobby by many people as it helps one relax and have a focused mind. However, indoor breeding has been a new sensation. Cannabis, commonly known as marijuana or pot seeds, mostly needs to be grown inside because of legal issues in many countries. A certain procedure needs to be followed while you are breeding.

The basic procedure or requirements of cannabis to grow are:

· Proper soil for the plantation
· Warmth
· Water
· Light source
· Nutrients
· Humidity

It is important to know how much of each is required by the plant to grow. But knowing the requirement is not an easy job unless you have experienced it.

For indoor growth of the cannabis, LED lights are a great boon to breeders.

With a varied range of LED grow lights available in the market, they provide a very safe ground for the cannabis to grow. Choosing the right grow light is very important. One of the major factors that a breeder should know and focus on is the number of lights that are needed to help with the growth. It is important to know the quantity of plant you are growing, the size of your room, the power of the light that you have purchased because all these factors determine the amount of light that you will be using in the growth of your cannabis.

Advantages of using LED Grow Light

Consumption Of Electricity
The consumption of electricity by LED grow lights as compared to similar other means of lights that help in the growth of cannabis is very low whereas the output and production are very satisfying. They can produce the ideal temperature that is needed for the growth of the cannabis plant.

The Perfect Temperature That Helps In Growth
Since cannabis needs a set temperature and environment to grow, outdoor growth can be a hindrance as natural weather conditions often does not remain the same. However, in indoor breeding, the LED grow lights stimulate the growth of plants by providing the correct amount of temperature and the environmental setting to be precise so that the cannabis has a healthy growth. It automatically adjusts the environment for the growth of the plants so that there is no unnecessary disruption.

Indoor gardening is not as costly as it seems. It is pretty cost-effective, and the result will satisfy you to every end. The LED grow lights are cost effective too. But it also depends on the strength of the light that you are buying. A light with lower wattage will cost less whereas a light with more wattage and better distribution will cost more. But it is not that costly that you cannot afford to buy it.


LED grow lights for cannabis are the best alternative that helps in the healthy growth of the plants and that too, at a minimum expense. Its usage is wide and around the world and has helped many breeders in the growth of their plants.

Emotions are the manifestations of breathing, smelling and sensing. As long as one breathes, one lives in emotions. Emotions are not confined to a person within one. They are the ripples of the Troposphere, and every other organism, if its breathing is not poisoned due to Industrialization, smells the emotions, as a result of which its own emotions get triggered. The Troposphere blows emotions as winds. Every organism, under the scheme of creation is constituted with the spiritual powers. Emotional life flows as the troposphere. Emotions are the main communications, not the Shannon and Weaver mechanical signals. Those signals are pollutions of the air. The Latin word for air is spirit. Spiritual powers are powers one derives from the air by breathing.

Today every partner and component of emotional life, all organisms, lost their basic emotional requirement, the unpolluted air. One starts as a Zygote as a result of intense emotionalized, heavenly symbiosis, the orgasmic sex between the parents, as the result of the ultimate rapture. The Zygote remains as permanent land mark memory of that emotional bonding, the bond grows as the child in the womb, breathing, smelling, perceiving, hearing…through the mother, developing the emotionalized mother tongue, and ultimately emerges as the newly born bundle of love, beauty and enchantment. The new born of every organism, is the ultimate phenomenon of beauty and sublimation—the bliss. The newly of the new born starts as the beginning of spiritual powers, or the powers from the air.

And we put that bundle of beauty, the child into the stupid school, which grinds it in the Cartesian stupidity. We have today the ultimate stupidities—the AC classroom.

What does the AC do? It makes the air inside the classroom cool, while blowing the heat into the troposphere, damaging the emotional content of the troposphere. Heat means the movement of molecules. By AC the natural temperature or the movement of molecules as an extension of the troposphere gets arrested and the tiny tot is in fact maimed emotionally. That is the AC classroom of the stupid who now runs schools with AC classrooms. Emotional damage simply is damage to breathing.

As individuals we are helpless to tackle the gigantic lunacy—economics, that has infected the world, a very chronic infection. But make your tiny effort, plant trees, train the tiny tots in breathing and sensing and tell it that marks and grades are the ultimate stupidities. Make the child play and breathe happily.

How to Develop Self-love to Be Loved

The term of self-love gains more and more popularity. Is it because we lack self-love and acceptance? We are living in a very demanding society where you meet critics and harsh judgments at every step. It is no wonder, that when we face so many criticisms, confidence in our powers and abilities decreases. 

We come to the point where we stop trust our judgments, where we don’t love ourselves the way we did. And then, the question appears: if I do not love myself, will someone do? Will someone have the desire to love me? That is why we have to learn how to accept our failures. Self-love can be developed! Let’s see how: Document Your Strengths 
If you have low self-esteem you criticize yourself for every step you make. Nothing is good, nothing is right. But what if you have strengths you didn’t pay attention to? You could have easily missed them.

Start by writing down your strengths you are aware of. Day by day, write down your accomplishments, even the smaller ones. Start by seeing the positive part of your life and your actions. You will see more good in others. Who wouldn’t want his significant other be an optimistic and positive one?

Eat Healthy
How can you be happy and love yourself if you are not healthy? Or if you are not relaxed? Make time for yourself. Go and buy groceries. Like the old saying: An apple a day keeps the doctor away. A sick version of you is not the best one. Eating healthy has many
benefits on your physical and mental state

Your coordination and strength will improve, as well as your emotional stability. When your looking improves, so does your self-confidence. You will be less inhibited. It will be easier to meet people and find the love of your life. 

Save Time for Yourself
Find those things that give you the flow state. Find that things that relax you the most. And, get lost in them. Relaxation gives you some space for your emotions. Let go of the negative ones and welcome in the positive ones. Especially if you go through a stressed period, consider delegating some tasks. 

For example, if you are a student and have a thesis to do, you can pay for editing or proofreading services. In this case, you can go to https://www.aussiewritings.com/ which has a professional team that can help you. You will be more relaxed knowing that real professionals are proofreading your thesis. And you... you will have more time to find your life calling.

Accept Your Human Condition
We have all heard of the myth of perfection. That everything we do has to be perfect. That we have to be perfect. We put more and more pressure on ourselves. If we trust this myth we automatically start to luck self-respect and self-acceptance. But the good news is it is just a myth. We, humans, are prone to making mistakes and having flaws. To making bad decisions. And we simply cannot change this. 

Accept yourself the way you are. That even though you will make mistakes you have so many good sides. Embrace this version of yourself and strive to make it better. Of course keep in mind that there is no perfection and that these obstacles are just new chances to improve yourself. Love yourself the way you are. Your significant other will do the same.

It may be hard for someone to love a person, who is always the victim of own harsh and cold judgments. Begin to love yourself. Self-love can be developed and it has so many positive effects. Find time for yourself, invest in yourself. You should be your number one priority. 

You will see that the more your self-love develops the more confident and full-minded person you become. You will be more open-minded, more positive and optimistic, more lovable. Being good to yourself will attract good people. If you will sincerely love yourself, your significant other will do the same. 

Having a life partner will change everything, will boost your self-confidence and self-love because he or she will love you the way you are. Seeing a person that invests so much love in you, will make you do the same for yourself. But you have to make the first step. So, what are you waiting for?
