Living in Luxury is Not a Pipe Dream


Living-in-luxury

 

Living in Luxury!

Observing the lifestyles of the rich and famous is a fun pastime for many of us. We dream of how cool it would be to live in the lap of luxury as they do. Fancy cars, premium restaurants, exotic vacations, mansions . what a life they lead! But, for most people, this dream is quickly followed by the thought not for me. And often some sort of condemnation of the rich follows to soothe our wounded ego because of how we’re not able to achieve what they have. 

Several serious fallacies surround the idea that what the rich and famous have cannot be achieved by most other persons. The ideas of scarcity and the moral wrongness of wealth are two of the primary culprits perpetuating the idea that a life of luxury is a pipe dream. The universe is abundantly overflowing with all that is needed for everyone it is individual thinking and feeling that directs the flow. If you believe in lack, lack is what you will get. If you believe in the infinite abundance and love of the universe, that is what you’ll get. The idea of the moral wrongness of having or acquiring great wealth and luxury is absurd in the face of a universe of unending supply. 

Dare to think outside of fear-based, limited supply ideas. You can live a life of luxury. There is no wrong in achieving a comfortable and abundant life. Your life is your responsibility. Your neighbor’s life is your neighbor’s responsibility. This is what makes giving to others and gratitude for what you have so rich. Giving to others is not an obligation, it is a choice motivated by love. Gratitude for what you have and what you receive will grow what you receive. Living in luxury can be yours if you choose it. By allowing yourself to enjoy that luxury without guilt, you are simultaneously allowing others the same right. In other words, you are loving others as you love yourself.

If The Doctor Is Cute, Screw The Fruit. Lets Shake Our Body


They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor is cute screw the fruit. Some people believe that having a balanced diet is enough to sharpen your brain and make it very dynamic and well functioning. But for me, I do believe that the fastest way to mentally reach your absolute peak is through shaking that body.

The brain and the body both are two components of a single entity. They both go together and can never be separated. But why work out the body if the brain is the target?

As an athlete growing up practicing Taekwondo every other day or so since I was a kid back then in 1995. I can tell from a professional perspective that an apple Might be nothing compared to regular physical exercising.

Here are some scientific proofs to defend my thesis. Many scientific tests conducted on animals and human beings themselves found that the brain is nourished by the blood coming straight through arteries, pumped by the heart. Not only that but here are some other benefits:

Exercising makes the blood carry the nutrients and oxygen that your brain and cells need to burn for fuel.

Exercising helps lower the blood pressure and reduces levels of artery-clogging cholesterol.

Exercising improves circulation of blood within the brain

Exercising relieve depression and improves the mood and confidence.

It strengthens the heart and keeps blood sugar level balanced especially for diabetics.

On top of all of this, Exercising boosts the nerve production which makes the brain cells form new connections with each other.

It’s therefore very important that we choose some fun exercises we love to do that would push our heart’s rate 50% faster than our rate at normal days because that will definitely benefit the heart and the lungs and our whole body system. And after a short period of time we will feel mentally and physically more energized and friskier than ever.

But to top it all, I am not a fan of an apple a day keeps the doctor way. Rather I am a fan of having a romp between the sheets.

Sleep more to Succeed


The successful people often pride themselves upon their own accomplishments in activities, hobbies and also jobs. They routinely smash through objectives and aims and being leaders in society. But this has a price tag.

With each achievement, a possible and potential failure looks excruciating which generates a disorder in our lifestyles by making us pass up family gatherings and stay over the working hours in order to avert such failure.

For a lot of achievers, hunting the impossible provides them a meaningful purpose. But the latter throws off our lives’ natural balance. In most cases this imbalance gives way to stress and depression which are the leading reasons for illness prevalence in many countries.

Stress causes significant damage in our immune system and hypertension and also causes an increase of weight. So getting more and more sleep is critical to maintain an equilibrium and sustain our overall health. A study in 2005 revealed that individuals that get less than 5 hours of sleep are 2.5 times more likely to be diabetic.

So striving for Perfection sometimes isn’t worth the payoff. Keep in mind that working hard at the appropriate time and getting much rest are quite essential to maintain a lively productive schedule.
