To Drink Coffee or Not to Drink? What are the Pros and Cons?

Ok…So I have been on and off of it…feeling guilty and not knowing if I should or shouldn’t…but after hearing an Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) module with Joy Bauer on it and researching it on the web for cross references, if discovered like most things… it’s all within balance..ENJOY!

***FACTS:***
-3-5 cups of coffee a day for middle aged people are 65% less likely to develop dementia or Alzheimer’s. (Alzheimer’s Journal 2009)

-Only women age 65+ who drank more than 3 cups a coffee per day had 33% less decline in memory over a 4 year period than women who drank 1 cup.

-White, Green and Black tea have the same amount of caffeine dependent on brewing time. http://www.livestrong.com/article/146904-caffeine-in-green-tea-vs-black-tea/
***NOTE***
//Unfiltered = (Turkish, French Press, Expresso Coffee)// raises your LDL (bad cholesterol) so it’s not recommended for those with high cholesterol to drink often. If this is you…alternatively just use a shot of regular filtered coffee when getting a latte :-)***

//Sleeping Issues = Caffeine spikes within 20 min and lingers 3-8 hours// so make sure you’re not drinking it 3-8 hours before sleepy time.

//Decaf = Sensitive to coffee// if you get headaches, become irritable, nauseous, or shaky from caffeine…you may want to stick to drinking decaf

//Gastro Intestinal Issues = Crohns, Colitis, IBS? Both regular and decaf is an irritant. Listen to your body if you drink coffee and it makes you feel unwell in the stomach.

The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt

This book is quite amazing! An a must read if you are looking to get more insight on the human condition. Jonathan explains it with simple clarity with deep insight and intellectual sensibility. Most people pursue happiness outside themselves. Others think that it comes solely within. Jonathan explains how it comes from in between.

Happiness is not something that you can find, acquire, or achieve directly. You have to get the conditions right and then wait. Some of those conditions are within you, such as coherence among the parts and levels of your personality. Other conditions require relationships to things beyond you: Just as plants need sun, water, and good soil to thrive, people need love, work, and a connection to something larger. It is worth striving to get the right relationships between yourself and others, between yourself and your work, and between yourself and something larger thank yourself. If you get these relationships right, a sense of purpose and meaning will emerge. – Johnathan Haidt

LIFE is a GAME

OH….To be, to do, to be again.
Wash, rinse, dry and repeat.

OH boy! The universe certainly gives me the things that I NEED and not necessarily what I WANT.

Just when I think that things are going oh so well and smoothly! BAM! I’m knocked down.

People and events are in our lives to test, guide and support us.
You choose how, when and why they should be in your life.

The real question is how am I testing, guiding and supporting and loving myself?
Is it in a way that is serving me?
If not, can I change it?
Do I want to change?
It won’t be easy, but it will be damn worth it!
I am damn worth it!

CHALLA!!!

The unmysterious human condition to be surrendered to…
❤ LIFE IS A GAME, You choose how to play! ❤ x

HOW TO DEAL WITH IMPOSSIBLE PEOPLE

UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS NOT YOU… IT’S THEM. THE BLAME GAME…

Impossible people have complete mastery of blaming skills and the inability to see themselves and to take responsibility for their actions…further projecting their bad behavior on you to. Blaming is what impossible people do, and they do it well.

Chances are, the more often they blame you, the more they themselves are actually at fault. Instead, you are only facing the facts, for your own sake.

If you accept responsibility for your own faults and resolve to improve yourself, it’s probably not you. Impossible people “can do no wrong.”

Remember the last fifty times you tried to have a civilized discussion with an impossible person? Chances are, every such attempt ended in you being blamed for everything…

Desirable Relationships

What you do most desire in a relationship?

I have discovered along the long, traveled and beaten path that I desire: Continual Growth and Development. Patience and Perseverance. Emotional Adaptability.

As an explorer in the realm of emotions and interpersonal communication, I trust and believe that I will learn a lot about what makes a relationship good or bad.

My thoughts on love and love relationships…amongst physical attraction, and common interests, the notions of reciprocity and being able to be present, creatively conscious and mutually responsive in a relationship are no doubt a few fundamental keys to a successful relationship.

I am continually learning that the true test of a happy relationship is whether myself and the other person can steer the right course between evolution and stability, avoiding the reefs on both sides.

CHEERS TO LOVING!
