Get a Meditation Boost - Practice Starting Over

By Phillip Moffatt
www.yogajournal.com

Starting over is a powerful practice, but don't be surprised if you can't sustain your initial commitment to it. Fortunately, there are three simple things you can do to build this capacity in a relatively short period of time.

Practice, Practice, Practice!
First, establish a motivation to practice starting over by observing what happens when you waste time feeling discouraged, escaping, or indulging your restless mind. In the week ahead, notice how many times you get knocked off balance when something goes wrong at work or in your personal relationships. Don't judge yourself for getting lost. Just be mindful that this is what is happening to you. If anything, be compassionate with yourself. After all, getting caught in your reactive mind is painful. Once you're able to acknowledge how much emotional energy and time you waste, you start to realize that the starting—over practice matters and that it is worth the effort it requires. You will have the aspiration, motivation, and conviction to persevere. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote, "Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over."

 

Second, select a couple of aspects of your daily life that you want to change and begin to practice starting over. Maybe you'll choose a person you find difficult to interact with, or a particular task at work, or perhaps some behavior related to diet or speech. When you discover that you have gotten lost, say to yourself, "Yes, I just got lost, and now I'll just start over." "And" practice empowers you to remember your intentions and goals, and it helps you move through negative feelings and return to the present moment. Try practicing this way for three months in these two areas, while maintaining mindfulness of all the times you don't start over in the other areas of your life. You will start to notice a difference. Seeing this for yourself creates more faith and, therefore, still more motivation. Then, when you feel ready, add yet another aspect of your life to your starting—over practice. Be prepared for disappointments and for forgetting your commitment; after all, you are teaching your mind a completely new automatic response.

 

Finally, let meditation be your laboratory for training your mind to think and respond in this new way. Meditation is a safe environment for developing the capacity for starting over because it involves only you; nobody knows when you're starting over. Plus, it builds your ability to stay concentrated and focused, so you are less likely to be thrown off center in daily life. It also cultivates equanimity and calmness, qualities that help you simply return to your intention whenever you need to start over. Practicing starting over in meditation is very simple: No matter how many times your mind wanders, simply go back to noticing your breath (or whatever you choose for your object of concentration), without making any judgments. Don't be interested in how well you're staying with your breath. Be interested in how well you start over.

Phillip Moffitt teaches vipassana meditation and mindful movement yoga at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California, and other meditation centers throughout the United States and Canada. For information about his teaching schedule, visit Marin Sangha

Eating For Your Health
by Gary Mason

 

It is no wonder obesity and illness is on the rise.  The foods we eat are lifeless, highly processed, lacking life energy, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other essential nutrients, we need to start eating for our health. 
 

Today we lack education on how to eat correctly and the brain washing we receive from the constant advertising leaves us even more confused.
 

Here are a few things to ponder the next time you have something to eat.
 

*Is your food made in a laboratory or by mother nature?
 

*How long has it taken to get to your table from the source? 
 

*What has been added or removed from the food? 
 

People are not getting healthier although we have advanced technology and medical systems. You might be shocked to know that there has been little decline in disease since the turn of the century instead we are seeing an increase in nutrition related non communicable disease at a rapid rate. You need to start eating for your health.
 

Lets face up to the facts, we are more stressed, we eat too much of the wrong foods, our sleep patterns are bad and we are not taking near enough exercise due to sedentary lifestyles.  Due to a number of pollutants in our food environment and medicine we are suffering from many strange ailments.
 

The combination of these factors can leave you feeling very fatigued and apathetic.  We then  seek out quick fix solutions such as energy drinks, caffeine and sugar.  Although you get a quick energy fix these stimulants also come with side effects ranging from dehydration, dental caries, depletion of mineral levels from the body and ultimately leave you even more fatigued.  
 

THIS IS NOT THE SOLUTION.

 

Solution:

Nature provides a solution with Plant based whole foods. Foods that are unprocessed and contain a complete source of vitamins and minerals can help you restore and achieve balance and provide you with a longer lasting source of energy. 

When you start eating for your health you will find that Plant based whole foods help create a more alkaline environment within the body because   they produce less acidity.
 

Start by slowly introducing more raw food into your diet. Raw foods can slow down the aging process and reverse cell degeneration that accompanies long term illness.
 

Look it’s as simple as this, if your food is lifeless the less natural energy you will get from eating it. The ability of the immune system to fight disease is thus weakened.  We ultimately become the living dead.
 

A simple way to get more raw food into your diet and begin eating for your health, start incorporating a green juice every day or have a green salad every day. Green juices are packed with essential nutrients and are a great way to move you through your day filled with happy happy energy. 
 

Here’s a recipe to get you started:
 

4 Cups of Spinach

1 Large Carrot

2 Apples
 

Have fun and cheers to your health.

Teething Symptoms and Solutions
By Susan Spicer
Today's Parent


“She’s so touchy!” says Melanie Aguiar, mom to 14-month-old Ana. “The slightest little thing like falling down on her bum will start her crying.” Why is this usually sunny little girl so unhappy? “She’s cut four teeth in the last week and a half, including a molar,” says her mom.

 

Not only has Ana been irritable, but she’s been chewing on her fingers, her cheeks are bright red, and she’s had loose bowel movements. When Ana cut her first two incisors six months ago, she had a mild fever for three days, swollen gums and crying jags.

When a baby’s teeth begin to appear, it can really hurt, says paediatric dentist Raymond Lee, of the London (Ont.) Health Sciences Centre. “Cutting teeth essentially causes an open wound in the gum,” explains Lee. “The root is still developing under the gum line as the crown pushes through the gum.”

The symptoms

Parents report a variety of symptoms associated with teething: flushed cheeks, drooling and a tendency to chew on hands, diarrhea, diaper rash, runny nose and mild fever.  Read more.....

Recipe
Rosemary Sweet Potato Chips
(Yield 6 servings)
www.vegetariantimes.com

Unlike white potatoes, sweet potatoes do not have to be cooked before they’re eaten. We’ve seasoned these wholesome chips with rosemary, but you can substitute other dried spices, such as garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast, paprika, or cayenne pepper.


Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato

2 Tbs. olive oil

1 Tbs. lemon juice

1 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Instructions:

1. Cut sweet potato into paper-thin slices with mandoline or sharp knife. Place slices in bowl, and gently rub in oil and lemon juice until well coated. Add rosemary and salt, and toss to combine.

2. Lay slices on dehydrator trays without overlapping. Dehydrate 6 to 10 hours, or until crispy, shifting trays as necessary to dry chips evenly. Turn off dehydrator, and cool chips completely. Store in airtight container for several weeks.
