3. Share your Stories:

You have to share your childhood stories which you heard from your grandparents because nowadays I am not sure still how many elderly people are doing this or in other words not sure how many of them are ready to hear from them.

4. Watch and Listen Carefully:

You have to keep a track of your child’s outdoor activities. What activities they are doing and what they are talking about often. Encourage those activities and build on them. Try to find out their inner talents and lead them to grow in that field. Finding the inner talents of a kid is very important for parents because many of them are not allowing them to explore and dumping them to do another activity. Many Parents are doing this mistake, try to find out what your child is capable of. Every kid will be capable of something, finding that one is the toughest part here.

5. Sculpt:

You have to provide a chance to your children to move and create, it’s like you are sculpting their brains. Play fosters connections and prunes. As kids already knew to sculpt sand and snow, they will sculpt their future.

6. Safety:

Every parents major concern is safety, that’s why most of them are not allowing their children to play outside. Just organize a play-date which really is about playing.

5 Ways to Get your Emotions under Control:

1. Realize the Situation:

Sometimes you need to avoid some circumstances which triggered unwanted emotions. When you know that you will most likely get angry when you are in a hurry, then don’t extend the things till the last minute. Try to avoid that situation to happen. Leave the place before 10 minutes or reach office before the actual time you need to and you won’t be bothered so much in the traffic.

2. Change the Situation:

The Emotion where everyone is trying to reduce is the disappointment. You are always expecting something, for example you like to serve “perfect meal” to friends and family, but when something goes wrong and at the end only huge disappointment remains. You try to modify the situation by finding the best recipes which is within your range of ability.

3. Attentional focus:

Let’s assume a situation where you constantly feel inferior to the people around you who looks great. For example, when you are at the gym, you notice the regulars on weight machines who lift three times as much as you can. You will feel low and can’t help but watch with envy and wonder at what they are able to do. You should change your focus from them to your fellow gym rats who will help you feel more confident about your abilities. Just focus on what you are doing and eventually you will gain some strength you desire.

4. Changing your thoughts:

Deepest emotions are beliefs which drive them to the core. You feel low or sad when you believe you have lost something. By having a second thoughts you may not be able to change the situation but at least you could change the way you believe the situation is affecting you.

5. Change your response:

If everything goes wrong and you can’t able to avoid just modify your focus or change your thoughts on the alternate response. The final motto is to realize the situation accordingly and get control of your response. In some situation, you might leave some unwanted words, you should see the situation from other side, later you will realize how you reacted in the situation and the next second your mind will say you could have reacted in a different way. Similarly, when you can’t stop laughing when everyone looks serious, gather your inner resources and try to change your facial expression.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

Why do we call “Failure Leads to Success”, for most of the people failure is a scary word. After years of conditioning by parents, education system and teachers, they have taught that failure is the one which needs to be avoided and in all your works no failure should be there. If there is any failure, then we feel low and some feel like their life is done.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success
Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

The environmental truth is that failure is inevitable and at the end without any doubt if you keep on trying, failure will lead to success. For example, when you take the best people in all respective fields, at the beginning they would have faced n-number of failures. Bill Gates is one of the richest man in the world, but at the beginning when he tried to start a company, it was a huge loss. Famous author Steven King’s popular novel, Carrie, was rejected more than 30 times before it got published.

When you see every successful person, there will be a failure story within him. Just they all learnt from their mistakes in failures and used them as a key to the success.  

Listed out the five ways where you can lead your failure to success:

Learn from the Mistakes:

Mistakes is the precious and gifted opportunity to learn something new in depth with the work you have done. The least it teaches you not to repeat the same mistake and never be afraid of making them. Till you reach your success, there will be more failures and mistakes than you will ever remember, but if you take it as a lesson from each mistakes and you will get more wisdom who never dares anything will.

Failure teach where you stand at your work:

Knowing about yourself is the important factor in achieving success. Few things teach about ourselves, like where you stand at the work you are doing and how far you are aware about the same. Failure means you have courage, you have the strength to endure and face it. It shows you that you have the capacity to face all kinds of failures and to accept them and value them as an experience. It’s very important to remind ourselves what lead up to a particular failure.

Don’t try to Hide your failure:

We all have a mind-set to remember our victories alone and forgot our failures. It will be very useful if you keep a track of your failures. Talk to yourself about the failures and keep a journal and reminders of your failures. The idea is to not to completely think about the failure, but to value them and use it as an experience in order to avoid the same mistake in future.

Failure is the road to Success:

It seems illogic but a failure by definition is an unplanned outcome. It will route you to a path you would otherwise have avoided. It will take you to a place you would otherwise never have gone. If any unplanned things happened, we should consider it as an opportunity. Pay close attention to the opportunities that your failures give you and indeed you have to be open to them.

Failure is a Part of Success:

Without failure there is no success, failure is a part of success and opposite of success is apathy. Those who have failed many times are the people that succeed most often. Without giving up, they try again and again until they reach the success. You will never make it, if you quit at the first loss.

So the point here is, don’t feel low and stop when you face any failures. Use them as an experience and keep on trying at one point you will reach your success. Good luck!

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?

Before getting into the topic let’s see how your body processes the food you eat, in order to provide all your body cells with the energy they need. And also what happens to the energy when you have diabetes and the system doesn’t work properly.

When you eat food that contains carbohydrates, its broken down in the stomach and digestive system, into glucose, which is a type of sugar. Our body needs glucose from food because that’s what gives us energy. Carbohydrate containing foods are things like Sugary foods, Starchy foods and some dairy products, and fruit. This glucose then moves into the blood stream and the body detects that the blood glucose level is rising.

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

In response to that, the pancreas, a little gland that sits just underneath the stomach, starts to release a hormone called “Insulin”. It’s insulin which helps our body to get energy from the food we eat.  The blood stream then takes the glucose and the insulin to every cell in our body that needs it. To make this easier to understand let’s talk about the muscle cells. At the muscle cells, it’s insulin that allows the glucose to get into the cells, where it can be used for energy. It’s a bit like insulin is a key unlocking the door to the cells, so the glucose can get in. In that way, the glucose level starts to decrease but the blood glucose level can be topped up at any point by the liver releasing extra glucose that it has stored.

The blood glucose rises again and again the pancreas produces more insulin to move with that glucose through the blood stream to the muscle cells, open the doors, and let the glucose in.

The body functions better with blood at an optimum level. It doesn’t like it if the blood glucose rises too high. Normally there is a cycle within the body which balances out the glucose and the insulin level and this is achieved by the food you eat, the pancreas and the liver.

CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

However, for some people, the system doesn’t work properly and they will develop diabetes. Mainly there were two types of diabetes, Type-I and Type-II.

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?

Type – I Diabetes:

In type I diabetes, the body isn’t making any insulin at all. This is because of an auto-immune response whereby the body has destroyed the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. We don’t entirely know why that happens in some people and not in others. About 15% of all cases falls into Type I diabetes. The most common type found in childhood. In Type-I diabetes the carbohydrate-containing food is broken down into glucose as normal. That glucose then moves into the blood stream. Normally, the body would produce insulin to let that glucose into the cells, but in type I diabetes, there is no insulin being produced so the glucose can’t get into the body cells at all. So the level of glucose in the blood rises and rises. The body then tries to decrease the level of glucose; it tries to get rid of the glucose through the kidneys. That’s why people who have undiagnosed type I diabetes tend to go the toilet a lot to pass urine.

The kidneys filter the glucose out of the blood and also take a lot of water with it, so the person with diabetes will get very thirsty. The urine contains more of glucose which creates an environment where it’s quite easy for bacteria to thrive, so it’s also quite common to get thrush or genital itching. Likewise, the blood haves a high level of glucose as well, so more bacteria than usual will tend to breed in flesh wounds, and they might be slow to heal.

CHECK YOUR GLUCOSE LEVEL

Glucose can also build up in the lens at the front of the eye causing the liquid in the lens to become cloudy. That can mean that some people with undiagnosed type I diabetes can have blurred vision. Because the glucose can’t get into the cells to be used for energy, somebody who’s got undiagnosed type I diabetes is going to start feeling very tired, lethargic and unable to go about their normal daily routine. But the body still needs an energy source in order to work properly. So what it does is, it starts to break down its fat stores and that can lead to weight loss.

What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?
What Causes Diabetes | Types of Diabetes?

Type – II Diabetes:

Over 85% of people falls under type – II diabetes. It is a little more complex because there’s slightly more processes at work. Either the body isn’t producing quite enough insulin, or the insulin it is producing isn’t working properly. That can be due to overweight, because a build-up of fat can stop insulin doing its job properly but it can also happen in people of a healthy weight.

So in type- II diabetes, the carbohydrate containing food is broken down into glucose in the stomach and digestive system as normal. That glucose then moves into the blood stream. The pancreas starts to produce insulin, which moves with the glucose through the blood stream to all the body cells which need glucose for energy. However, the glucose can’t always get into the cells because the locks to the cell doors have become furred up with fat deposits. That means that the insulin can’t open the cell doors properly. So the level of glucose in the blood continues to rise.

In response to this, the pancreas produces even more insulin, so the blood glucose levels continue to rise and the insulin levels continue to rise. This situation is further complicated by the cells, who are desperate for energy, sending out emergency signals to the liver to release stored glucose. The blood glucose level goes up and up and the pancreas produces more and more insulin, until it can’t cope anymore and eventually it wears out.

The symptoms of type – II diabetes come along very slowly and some people don’t have any symptom at all. So, for that reason, people can live with type II diabetes for up to 10 years before that realize that they have it. Type II diabetes can be treated in a number of different ways. Initially It may be sufficient to make changes to the food you’re eating and to take extra physical activity or lose any weight that be appropriate.

Positive Thinking | How to Enlighten Your Life with Your Thoughts

Is it really possible to change our life just by thinking positively?

It seems to be the attitude of people and the truth is “THE MIND IS EVERYTHING. WHAT YOU THINK, YOU BECOME” – The Buddha

Positive Thinking | How to Enlighten Your Life with Your Thoughts
Positive Thinking | How to Enlighten Your Life with Your Thoughts
Positive Thinking

Why are Positive thinking being So Powerful?

The Power and Energy of positive thoughts contains a basic physics in it. Thus everything is energy and everything has a specific vibration and kind of like attracts like – the power of your thoughts couldn’t help but it will attract the situations with similar vibrations.

You might say that vibrations of your environment and circumstances affect your own vibration and certainly It is true when you allow them to.

When the high vibrations of love and happiness have far more power comparing to the low vibrations of fear and negativity.

Since the Human condition is designed to be like “Seeing is believing”, we will allow the negativity to dominate our positive thinking and keep on allowing the negative thoughts.

The Prominent thing that we don’t do is increase our vibration of positive thinking to the point where “believing is seeing” and this is where your thoughts will override your negativity around you and start to influencing your circumstances.

Positive Thinking | How to Enlighten Your Life with Your Thoughts
Positive Thinking | How to Enlighten Your Life with Your Thoughts
Psychology of Happiness

General Line of Thinking:

Just look at yourself and look at the people in your life as objectively as you can.

Do you (the people you know or yourself) actually believes your lives at the mercy of influences like the bosses, the economy or government related jobs or family obligations and educational or financial status etc.?

Do you live always expecting the weekend?

Did you see your life as a struggle always?

Always blaming, condemning or complaining about yourself?

In general, you are unhappy and feel like your life is bored?

If you can say yes to any one of the above points on some particular level, then assume that you are not alone in the world. Everyone in the world faces some problems at least one they might have. That’s one of the God’s little trick and it is the design of human life.

We simply don’t believe that our thoughts/ thinking have the power to influence our physical reality.

What Kind of people do you Admire?

When you look at some people you admire, whom you think has got it all in life. There are plenty of millionaires over there. Here we are talking about the people whom living the lives like you wished to live. That’s why you are recognizing them and because they are on your radar to show you that you can live the same life.

Not Good Education, Luck or Family Fortunes

When you see some of the most powerful / Influential people would have been born in the unfortunate poverty and might have come across all sorts of obstacles. The only difference is the quality of their thoughts and positive thinking.

They Think Positively

They will always think in terms of what can be achieved and what couldn’t be done. In terms of possible things.

A positive, happy, successful people will choose to see beauty and blessing in everything. They will always look for the opportunities.

They won’t allow the negative vibrations or thoughts to affect their sense of well-being. And at last the more positively they think, the more they can attract the good things they want in life.

Tips to Think Positive:

Assume that if you start giving appreciation for everything you are doing in your life. Not only the good things but also the bad, the unpleasant, the painful moment.

What if you start seeing blessings and learning lessons in everything and the beauty of all people?

What if you realize that the happiness and Joy does not depend on anything but your decision to be happy?

What if you said “I can’t allow this to bring me down” I can able to deal with any kind of situation and Joy of living?

The Power of Positive Thinking

Seriously saying take Inspiration from Little Kids

There is no limit for their imaginations, it is unbound as the universe. They will think in terms of possibilities. Indeed, they don’t have any responsibilities but they don’t have the freedom to do what they want.

You do it, if you choose to do it so! Successful people have the responsibilities and obligations but things all fall into place for them, because positive thinking determines and decides their lives.

Life is truly what you make it and think to be

Have a Positive Life!

Either you unconsciously think about negative thoughts and life will continue as it is or you aware of your thoughts and change them.

Everyone has the potential and power to choose to be happy, to think positively and raise your vibrations. By raising your positive vibrations, you will soon feel the change and your life will blossom.
