Health & Wellness Advice

Health and Wellness Advice

"SLEEPING BETTER" (Part 1 of 2 Articles)

Much has been written about keeping a positive attitude, focusing on goals with high purpose, choosing to be happy, finding happiness within, connecting with the Source of joy. A very specific behavior or practice to cultivate this positive attitude is laughing.

An abundance of scientific data has shown many health benefits of laughing. Some of these many benefits are: improving function of the lungs and the whole respiratory tract, releasing endorphins (natural opiate-like substance produced by the brain), improving immune function, relaxing the nervous system, reducing the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline (Both are beneficial hormones but usually are in excess, leading to high blood pressure and many other stress-related conditions.), bringing harmony to physiological and neurological systems, connecting left and right hemispheres of the brain, balancing emotions, and increasing self-confidence.

Food for the Soul

BANANA BREAD COFFEE CAKE

This month's recipe is a quick and easy banana bread coffee cake. It is especially easy, as it uses Bisquick™, a convenient baking mix. This recipe is one of those great recipes you can pull out when you forget to plan ahead for dessert, as most of the ingredients are kitchen staples. Fresh sliced together with mashed bananas make this cake extra moist, light and full of banana deliciousness.

"PHOTOGRAPHS"

Cold Mountain is a favorite film of mine. It is quite different from the well-written, but dense, novel. Both, however, capture the importance of a moment in time. Ada Monroe, the heroine, tells Inman, her long estranged beaux that they hardly knew one another. He counters the falsehood of the claim. To Inman brief moments of time are filled with thousands of memories upon which to recall. The thought makes me contemplate on how God might see us, His creation.
