I wish I knew then what I know now!Written by Kenia Morales
I often hear people say: “I wish I knew then what I know now”. In fact I am pretty sure that we can all relate to this particular phrase. Let’s face it; we all have made irrational decisions at some point of our lives.
I am also sure that many will love to travel back in time and change a thing or two. But, when you think about it mistakes are necessary in order to learn some of life’s valuable lessons. Picture a child jumping on a couch. His mother obviously more experienced in general foresees danger and tells him: “stop jumping on couch, you might fall off and get hurt.” The child is having such a good time that ignores his mom’s command. What happens next? Just what mother predicted. Chances are that if child hit himself hard, he will be likelier to learn his lesson or at least give it a second though before doing it again.
One Minute MeditationWritten by Steve Gillman
Maybe learning to meditate intimidates you, and in any case it's tough to find time for daily meditation. The solution to both problems is an easy meditation you can learn right now, that will only take a minute to do each day.
An Easy Meditation Technique
Breathing through your mouth expands your chest, but if you breath through your nose you'll notice how your abdomen extends. You see, nose-breathing causes diaphram to pull air to bottom of your lungs. This delivers a good dose of oxygen into your bloodstream and brain. It also tends to relax you.
Breathing through your nose is healthier, and it's basis of this one-minute meditation. You simply close your eyes, let tension go out of your muscles, let go of your thoughts (to extent possible), and take four slow, deep breaths through your nose, paying attention to your breathing.
