Music, Dance And Your Sanity

Music, Dance and Your Sanity
"To do science? To really do science? You don't live in the world," he says. "You live in an attitude." Gerald M. Edelman, M.D., Ph.D., founder of the Neurosciences Institute, La Jolla, California. Following this same concept, "In Real Estate and Business it's about Living in an Attitude!" Ted Borgeas, "From the Chicken Coop".
The benefits of music and dance during the decision making
of buying or selling your home has extended as far back as
Aristotle and Plato. Even Reigning Monarchs had court
musicians and dancers, for their entertainment but possibly
for the relaxing affects from their stresses of boredom? Well
buying and selling a home sure doesn't have boredom but a
lot of anxiety and even stress. With modern technology and
the advent of television and the Internet combining visual,
auditory and artistic qualities these medias have extended
numerous benefits to our homes and businesses.
Applying music, dance, laughter and mirth to the buying and
selling process of properties, has acquired critical acclaim
because of scientific studies that can now measure some of
the perceived health, stress and anxiety release attributes
from music and dance.
One of the best definitions for science and probably for the
home decision makers, I believe was a statement made by
Gerald M. Edelman, M.D., Ph.D., founder of the
Neurosciences Institute, La Jolla, California. He explained
the difference between scientists and other people. "To do
science? To really do science? You don't live in the world,"
he says. "You live in an attitude." Dr. Edelman's statement
"You live in an attitude," can extend to every facet involving
not only in science but our emotions, perceptions and
responses of mind as related to the pressure of the multiple
decisions and complexity of buying and selling your home. Of
course with the right Attitude of Gratitude, especially with the
right Real Estate Professional can contribute a lot of
pleasure and happiness. Responding to each emotion still
encompasses an
Attitude of Gratitude, which can be helped, developed and
improved, as related to our need for sometimes, Heroic and
Daring humanistic actions to these emotions, yes especially
when buying and selling your home or for that matter,
including your family, finances, location and the magnitude of
other disclosures.
The Neurosciences Institute, during their research, has
discovered a way to measure how the human brain
processes intricate tones, presenting incredibly new insights
into the effects of music. While there application may be
directed towards disorders of hearing. I believe, future
studies will extend far beyond into the emotions involved for
any home transactions. But don't let technology interfere with
the Romance of the Home due your transcending enjoyment
of also listening your intuition.
Ted Borgeas uses the same concept, in addition to others,
as Hospitals that are now utilizing the media of combining
soothing music with associated pleasant and relaxing nature
scenes on television, not only in the patient's rooms but also
in the waiting and recovery areas, but instead at his office
and while showing homes in person and on the internet. He
can recall utilizing soothing music and encouraging and
positive conversation regarding the patient's postoperative
responses to projected recovery during surgery in the
operating room. He knew the positive subconscious
interpretations by the patient while under anesthesia aided in
they're perceived recovery and healing and applies the same
principles to homebuyer and sellers.
"People are now using music to help them deal with sadness
and fear." Dr. Anne Blood, a researcher at Massachusetts
General Hospital in Charlestown Massachusetts. "We are
now showing in our study that music is triggering systems in
the brain that make them feel happy." What a startling
revelation, especially since music lovers and people lovers
have known this since eternity!
Our interpretation of applying dance and music to buying or
selling a home may not include Aristotle's and Plato's ancient
perceptions. But the concept of music and dance not only
stimulates physical movement, either overt or imagined but it
also affects our immunological system based on studies
relating to music, laughter and humor.
Dancing is not only physical exercise, including footwork,
rhythm, tempo, balance, control, showmanship and style but it
also helps in transcending thought. Try dancing to any type of
fast tunes and think at the same time? It is especially
beneficial, in times when we may have nasty unbeneficial
feelings and thoughts or confusing perceptions about
properties. It is guaranteed to change you attitude; to a
relaxed Attitude of Gratitude!
"I frequently perform solo dancing, yes, by your-self, utilizing
various types of ethnic music with marvelous results". This
author has utilized music, dance, laughter and mirth, in
conquering his prostate cancer. This of course was in
conjunction with the Physician's God inspired therapies! Try
it? It works.

Benefits of Lavender Green Tea

In Health
Organically grown Green Tea is rich in polyphenols and anti-oxidants that fight free radicals that damage cells and tissue. An 8 oz. Cup of Green Tea has as much potency as a cup of blueberries, a best source of anti-oxidants and as much vitamin C as a lemon. It also contains magnesium, riboflavin, niacin, folie acid and potassium.
Larch Arabinogalaetin (AG) is a good source of natural dietary fiber. Women who increase fiber from 12 to 24 grams absorb 90 fewer calories from fat and protein. Men who increase fiber from 15 to 36 grams absorb 130 fewer calories. Larch (AG) moves waste through the digestive tract promoting intestinal cleansing, making it the safest dietary supplement. Unlike psyllium, larch increases mineral absorption, and like our green tea, it contains no sugar, sweetener, seasonings or colorings.
AG provides us with healthy bacteria that fight free radicals in the digestive tract. The digestive tract is the site of the vast majority of free radical production. A healthy digestive tract directs nutrients to the organs of the body and eliminates waste.
Skin Care
We eliminate toxic materials through the digestive and urinary tract. Should these organs fail, toxins will attempt to exit via our skin, decreasing the quality of our skin. Green tea, larch, and lavender are frequently used in skin care products.
Weight Management
Green tea has been sold in health food stores as a safe way to reduce weight. Green tea is thermogenie. That is, it bums fat. If we don't burn fat, we will soon wear it.
Weight Management & Stress
Does stress causes you to reach for comfort food7 Comfort foods are often used to deal with emotional events. Lavender is emotionally balancing; that is, it picks us up when we are down and helps to calm us when we are tense. Possibly reducing our desire for high calorie sweets. Long before Lavender was used for fragrance, it was considered a culinary delight. Enjoy the taste of Lavender Green Tea with Larch and profit from the many nutritional benefits without the calories.

A Vital Tool For Your Fitness Success

A Training Diary is a Vital Tool For Your Fitness Success
I know you've heard this before and it seems
"basic". But it is an important key to success.
And apparently, it isn't heard enough because
I'd say less than 1% of the people I see in the
gym keep track of their workout.
An essential part of the organization needed to
get each workout day right is a training diary.
At its most basic minimum this is a written record
of reps and poundage for every work set you do and
an evaluation of each workout so that you can stay
alert to warning signs of overtraining.
After each workout reflect on your evaluation and,
when necessary, make adjustments to avoid falling
foul of overtraining.
A training diary or journal is indispensable for
keeping you on track for training success. No matter
where you are now -- 180-pound squat or 500, 13-inch
arms or 17, 135-pound bench press or 350 -- the
systematic organization and focus on achieving goals
that a training journal enforces will help you to
get bigger, stronger, and leaner.
As simple as it is to use a training log, do not
underestimate its vital role in helping you achieve
your fitness goals. Most trainees are aware that
they should record their workouts in a permanent
way, but few actually do it.
And even those trainees who keep some sort of
training log usually fail to exploit its full
potential benefits. This is one of the major reasons
why most trainees get minimal results from their
Your training journal is extremely important and
should be more than just a list of weights, sets
and rep.
When used properly, a training journal enforces
the organization needed to get each work-out right,
week after week, month after month and year after year.
By recording your poundages and reps, you log your
entire training program and the week-by-week breakdown
of how you work through the routine (s) in each
training cycle in the journal.
A training log eliminates reliance upon memory.
There will be no, "Did I squat eight reps with 330
pounds at my last squat workout, or was it seven?"
Refer to your journal and you will see precisely
what you did last time--i.e., what you need to
improve on if you are to make your next workout a
step forward.
With a well-kept and detailed journal, you'll know
with absolute certainty what is working in your
program and what doesn't. Are you stagnating? Not
making the progress you want? Go back and consult
your journal at a time that you were making fantastic
progress? What were you doing then that you are
not doing now?
You must be 100 percent honest when entering data.
Record the quality of your reps. If you did five
good ones but the sixth needed a tad of help from
a training partner, do not record all six as if
they were done under your own steam. Record the
ones you did alone, but note the assisted rep as
only a half rep.
It is not enough just to train hard. You need to
train hard with a target to beat on every work
set you do. The targets to beat in any given workout
are your achievements the previous time you performed
that same routine.
If you train hard but with no rigorous concern
over reps and poundages, you cannot be sure you are
training progressively. And training progressively
is the key to making progress. But for accurate records
of sets, reps and poundages to have meaning, your
training conditions must be consistent.
If at one workout you rush between sets, then at the
next workout you take your time, you cannot fairly
compare those two sessions.
If one week the deadlift is your first exercise and
the following week you deadlift at the end of the
workout, you cannot fairly compare those two workouts.
And the form you use for each exercise must be
consistent and flawless every time you train.
Likewise, if you do 3 sets of the bench press and
one workout you take 1 minute between sets and the
next workout you take 3 minutes between sets, you
can't be sure that you've progressed from one
workout to the next.
Get all the details of your training in black and
white, refer to them when appropriate and get in
control of your training. In addition to control
over the short term, this permanent record will
give you a wealth of data to analyze and draw on
when designing your future training programs.
Keep accurate records of each workout, each
day's caloric and protein intake, how much
sleep you get, muscular girths and your body
composition. Then you will remove all guesswork
and disorder from your training program.
But all of this is just a bunch of words. You
have to make the theory and rationale come
alive with your conscientious and methodical
practical application. Do exactly that now, and
take charge of your training!
Most trainees have neither the organization
needed for success nor the will and desire to
push themselves very hard when they need to.
But these are the very demanding essentials for
a successful fitness program.
Find out how you did in trying to make today
another step toward achieving your next set of
short-term goals. Have all of today's actions--
training (if a training day), diet and rest--met
or exceeded the goals for the day? If not, why
A daily critical analysis of what you did and
did not do to take another step forward will
help you to be more alert to improving tomorrow.
Take a few minutes each day to review your
Take as much control over your life as you can.
Learn from your mistakes. Capitalize on the
good things you have done. Do more of the
positive things you are already doing and
fewer of the negative things.
