Love…

Love is like a fire in my chest, it spreads wildly and free, terrifying love is, for I feel afraid. Afraid of my own heart, every beat sinks me, the rush of blood turns me red, my eyes cannot look away, something merely natural but powerful. Thousands, if not millions of souls walk by and my gaze is attracted to one.  Destroys and it creates, so why does my heart take the chance? Love? A curse but yet a blessing, it distracts me from life, from people, from everything, one soul causes chaos, one soul who I may feel comfortable around. The feeling is beyond reason, explanation, it cannot be defined, only felt. Not even words can express this reaction, for it is too powerful. The heart speaks in its own language, in a beautiful and intimidating tone. Why do I feel this way? Why are people so easy to fall for? Why are specific souls attracted to me and why do I float towards them?

Feeling love is like wondering through a forest, the sight so majestic, gorgeous but yet I feel lost. It is natural, it creates intimacy, becoming one with nature, feeling love for another life, another soul. Driving me insane, at the same time bringing me harmony, killing and yet healing me. Beautiful nature is, and this soul is as natural as I am, there maybe flaws, mistakes, stress, but my heart goes beyond that, it looks deeper within, in search of beauty that this soul may not see in itself. Love opens up a path, a path that two may take. If the bond is strong, the path will never end, two in loved souls will never reach a destination. My heart searches to heal, to love and though not many can return the favor, my heart will beat endlessly and find another to whom it can share this feeling with.

Aesthetic vs Calisthenics

What is the difference?

Body weight (Calisthenics) vs free weight (Aesthetic), If you are training for aesthetics, mass or to generally look good, you are a bodybuilder and you should train like one. Muscle mass is muscle mass. … Muscle mass and body fat percentage are basically the only things you can control about your physique’s appearance.

Aesthetic Bodies^

Calisthenics are exercises consisting of a variety of gross motor movements—running standing, grasping, pushing, etc.—often performed rhythmically and generally without equipment or apparatus. They are, in essence, body-weight training. They are intended to increase body strength, body fitness, and flexibility, through movements such as pulling or pushing oneself up, bending, jumping, or swinging, using only one’s body weight for resistance; usually conducted in concert with stretches.

Video games train your brain to fight depression

Hospitals, especially extended stays in them, can make you feel isolated and alone. Pairing that with the difficulty of a bad diagnosis or a tough week of treatment makes it hard to think happy thoughts. But video games can help put a smile back on a child’s face.

Multiple studies have looked inside the brains of gamers, and they’ve found that during gameplay two regions of the brain are constantly hyperstimulated: the reward pathways and the hippocampus. The reward pathways are associated with motivation and goal-orientation, and the hippocampus is associated with learning and memory. Even when we’re not playing an educational game, we’re learning how to play the game and progress from level to level, so our knowledge-hungry brains are happy.

Studies have also looked at the brains of people suffering from depression, and they’ve found two regions of the brain that are constantly understimulated: you guessed it, the reward pathways and the hippocampus.

So if patients are struggling with depression (which can easily happen in long hospital stays or ICU stays), video games can target the reward pathways and hippocampus to help them in the right direction.

Video games can ease chronic pain.

Many times, kids who are in the hospital for long stays experience pain caused from their condition or their treatment. Researchers at the National Children’s Medical Center have found that video games can provide a distraction that aids in pain relief.

Research shows that as children get more involved in games, they become more likely to push muscles they previously would not move due to pain. By increasing their range of motion, they stretch areas that need stretching. If you add in video game extensions like Kinect, the possibilities increase.

Video games reduce anxiety.

And who has more anxiety than a child in a hospital, constantly surrounded by doctors, nurses, and needles?

A study done by the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey found playing hand-held video games as effective as taking an anti-anxiety pill before surgery. The study tested three groups of children ages four to 12: one group got nothing to ease the anxiety, one group got an oral dose of anti-anxiety medicine, and one group got a Gameboy. The medicine and the Gameboy were delivered 30 minutes before surgery. The first group saw an increase of 17.5 on the anxiety scale, the second group saw an increase of 7.5, and the third group saw a zero percent increase. The children who played with a Gameboy were totally relaxed.

Best Outdoor Activities for Staying in Shape in 2017

By Rachael Rettner

You may be wondering exactly where the first half of 2017 went, but if you still need to get in shape, don’t fret — there’s still time, and the balmy days of summer provide a great opportunity for exercising.

For getting fit and staying in shape, exp

erts say there’s no single type of exercise that’s considered “the best.” The most important thing is that you like the activity you choose to do.

Here on this page, we’ve pulled together important information on some of the most common outdoor activities, as well as tips on how to stay motivated and avoid health risks while you exercise outdoors this summer.

One of the simplest ways to get fit outdoors is to take a walk; research shows that brisk walking on a regular basis can improve the health of your heart, lungs and circulatory system; reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes; and help you maintain a healthy weight. Walking is also a low-impact exercise, so it’s easy on the joints and muscles. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), just 10 minutes of brisk walking, three times a day for five days a week (for a total of 150 minutes per week) is enough to improve your aerobic health.

Like walking, running helps improve your cardiovascular fitness. If you chose to run rather than walk, you don’t need to exercise for quite as long. According to the most recent physical activity guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), adults can do 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity, such as running, to get the same benefits as 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity.

Swimming is another good way to improve your aerobic fitness, and it offers health benefits similar to those of walking and running. What’s more, because swimming is easy on your muscles and joints, you may be able to exercise for longer in the water than you could on land without increased muscle or joint pain, according to the CDC. Swimming may be particularly good for older adults, as it may help strengthen core muscles and reduce the risk of falls, one study found. In addition, swimming may help people with arthritis increase the use of their joints without worsening their symptoms, the CDC says.

Hiking not only gives you an aerobic workout, but it may also be good for your mental health; a number of studies suggest that spending time in nature reduces stress levels and negative thinking. What’s more, if you don’t have time to work out during the week, a long hike or two on the weekend may offer health benefits similar to those seen in people who exercise more frequently, according to a recent study.

Cycling is another low-impact exercise that provides health benefits but is easy on your muscles and joints. And studies suggest that even a little biking can help people avoid weight gain. Although men may have concerns about how cycling could affect their fertility or sexual function, a recent study found no link between cycling and infertility or erectile dysfunction. Biking may even be good for your mental health, with some studies finding that cycling to work is linked with better well-being than driving to work.

How to get Six Pack Abs?

The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…and the way to a man’s abs is through the kitchen. Not all carbs are evil. It’s the simple, white carbs that you want to avoid. Whole grains (aka “slow carbs”) are rich in fiber and go through your system much more slowly (hence the name) than simple, refined carbs (the white ones). So don’t shy away from the browns -brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat and oats.

Getting six pack abs isn’t necessarily about counting calories. But you do need to get rid of the fat on top of your abs to expose the muscles underneath them — and eating a bit less will get you on track. Eating any breakfast was associated with increased feelings of fullness, a reduced desire to eat, and lower levels of ghrelin (a hunger-stimulating hormone) throughout the morning. But a protein-packed breakfast was associated with these benefits over the course of the entire day.

Exercise your core muscles. Once the fat on top of your abs is gone, you’ll need washboard abs to be underneath. In the comfort of your home, you can exercise your core muscles — it helps posture, too!

Here is a 10 minute video on how to workout those abs at home!

The Perfect Push Ups

I’ve been executing push ups for awhile now, they have worked on my chest, triceps and core. The action requires for you to push yourself off the ground using your arms. Keeping the back straight and arms shoulder width apart. Push-ups exercise use the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, with ancillary benefits to the rest of the deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis and the midsection as a whole.

Here is a video below on how to perfectly execute a push up and how to avoid wrist injuries as well.

The Secret

The Secret is a best-selling 2006 self-help book written by Rhonda Byrne, based on the earlier film of the same name. It is based on the law of attraction , that thoughts have frequency. It states that you must think positively and you must coordinate your life to events you want to happen. For instance, you want a car so you must get a garage first. You want to get married, you buy a king sized bed. You want to make space in your life for things you hope for so when they come they have a place to be.

The Secret says that the world’s smartest and most successful people are aware about the law of attraction. That’s why they talk so much about things like vision boards; once you envision what you want for your life and make a conscious note of it , you are emitting that frequency to the world and
