It’s the morning of February 11, 2017. Lester will never forget it.
His alarm rings, he tries to get out of bed, but…he can’t.
Lester’s body feels like a sandbag forced down to the mattress, his mind races, and his eyes well up with tears. The first emotion is fear. I’ll be late for work! Lester attempts to leave the bed. No luck. He calls his boss and asks for a day off for health reasons.
That day turns into weeks spent in bed with thoughts about pointless life, loneliness, and useless work. Lester is stressed. Or, as they say, he has emotional burnout. Continue reading How To Skyrocket Productivity When You’re Stressed Or Depressed

Vitamin D research continues to impress upon us the importance of appropriate sun exposure as the ideal way to optimize your vitamin D levels.
Winter limits sun exposure for many up to six months of the year. During those times, your next best bet would be artificial UVB light, as UV ray exposure also appears to have health benefits above and beyond the production of vitamin D.
One of the most damaging elements of standard tanning beds are the magnetic ballasts (which make that loud buzzing noise you hear in many tanning salons). If an electronic ballast is used, there are far less damaging EMFs, which provide most of the danger from tanning beds.

There are many uninformed individuals when it comes to knowing what’s happening within the modern day medical industry, and by no fault of their own. The world of medical science, unfortunately, has been plagued with scientific fraud and pharmaceutical company influence.
The words ‘big pharma’ are far from a conspiracy theory, which is why so many physicians and doctors in influential positions are trying to let the world know.
For example, Dr Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet is one of them. He stated that half of all the published literature could be false. Mark Mattson, the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging said that pharmaceutical companies can’t make money off of healthy people, which is why there is no funding for research and why there’s a lot of pressure for regular eating patterns forced upon us by the food industry. Continue reading Is Depression Really The Result of a Chemical Imbalance?

It’s ok where you are at, it’s okay you need space, it’s ok to gift yourself what you need.
Aloneness is something we HAVE to gift ourselves without question along our spiritual paths — even when we are with people — we have to continuously show up for our own personal and emotional needs.
This houses the potential for our continued expanded growth into the unlimited possibilities of multi-dimensional experiences and thus have those with the people we love around us. Continue reading Understanding Aloneness and Isolation During Spiritual Shifts
