START THE DAY RIGHT
did you know that according to the circadian rhythm and ayurveda of course, the best time of the day to exercise is 6-10am
This time of the day is predominantly kapha which has the qualities associated with water. This means the body can be a little dull and heavy, prone to retain water or generating congestion.
The mind and the body are still waking up with the emergence of daylight and it needs a jolt of exercise, meditation and food to synchronise itself with a new day.
When balanced with a little bit of exercise and food at this time of the day, the kapha energy stops being dull and instead becomes a steady, calming influence on your morning work!
Maybe that’s how your dharma gets fulfilled on a day at time by following the daily rhythm? It’s that simple but not so simple ::::
A few weeks ago I met Amy Peake. A woman on a mission to ”to restore dignity and create social uplift by creating employment for groups of women refugees” 🌎 Amy’s charity @loving_humanity ❤️ creates micro sanitary product factories which can be shipped to refugee camps & slums across the world 🌍 These remarkable factories are then staffed by refugees or vulnerable local women who produce washable and disposable sanitary products for themselves & their community. ”Menstruation and incontinence are not a choice. Every man, woman and child deserves personal comfort and dignity, even in the direst of circumstances. Our wider vision also is that girls everywhere should be free to attend school unhindered by a lack of a ‘period pad’.” I know many of you, myself included, have suffered with period problems. I can't image not having access to sanitary products when that MEGA bloody period kicks in. Can you? 🙁
SUMMER LOVE IN WINTER BREEZE:
I woke up to sun over my head.
And tidal waves at my feet.
I just turned and found,
It was you beside me.
I climbed up snowy peaks.
Dived into coral reefs.
I opened my eyes and found,
Your hands on me.
I travelled with my windows down.
And listened to Sufi on the stereo.
I took a breath and found,
It was you breathing me in.
I've watched the stars on the darkest nights.
And I've camped under the northern lights.
I looked up and found,
Your eyes fixed on me.
Defy all seasons, defy the change.
Light some candles, spray lavender scent.
Recount the time lost without love.
Wander the streets, hum some old songs.
I dreamed enough for a lifetime.
You're all the places I wanna go.
Songs I wanna sing, a garden I wanna grow.
Shatter all clocks, let the time freeze.
And make summer love in winter breeze.

According to MedlinePlus, a service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), Oil spills can affect human health. Problems could include skin and eye irritation, neurological and breathing problems, and stress. These can be very harmful to the people that live around these areas where oil spills happen the most. It is our job to do something about it. #health#oil#spreadtheword#cooltheworlddown

So many people use the word "humbled" incorrectly and for some reason it grinds my gears a l'il. To be humbled means that you have been brought down, evened out, to become metiphorically sobered. It is NOT something that happens when you're praised, given presents, lifted up. To be humble is to be realistic of your view of importance, which generally is not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. This isn't to say you're unworthy of feeling amazing and being praised, it just means you need to pick another word to describe how you're feeling other than "humbled". Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. 💃🏼
The staff here at the Trinity Parkway GameStop would like to extend a big thank you to Mr.Stowers and all of Delta Sierra middle school for allowing us to be part of their 2019 Level Up Live gaming tournament. This event provided a safe yet fun environment that brought together a diverse group of young individuals all with a passion for gaming and competition. I am truly excited to have witnessed the cheering and excitement first hand and cannot wait to see y'all next year. Get to training!
Jose G. and the staff of GameStop Trinity Parkway.
P.s. DSMS kids comment if you think I should go 1v1 vs Mr.Stowers at the next tournament. 😎 (we'll pick a game later)

SEEK KNOWLEDGE EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO GO AS FAR AS CHINA FOR IT.
. “Beta ilm to haasil karna hi hai naa chahey uske liye Cheen jaana padey”, aunty said smilingly 😊. And, since then we always call her ‘China waali Aunty’ lovingly ❤️.
Well, this proverb was not new to me. I always heard my elders mentioning it.
“Ilm haasil karo agarcha Cheen jaana padey”
(Seek knowledge even if you have to go as far as China for it)
By Allaah, so true ❤️!
Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.
Al-Thawri said: “It is the knowledge for which no person has any excuse for not knowing.”
You know what…sometimes I feel that the root cause of all the mess happening around, in homes and in the world, is the lack of knowledge. In the name of Islam people are propagating their own whims and desires, doing whatever they want under the tag #muslim , #hijabi , #niqabi , and what not. And, the sad part is that we simply don’t know what’s wrong. Hence, we can’t even fix it.
I was just reading #Mybedsidebook 📙.
And, you are reading with me.
. “Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim. Knowledge makes you aware of what is duty, what is recommended, what is forbidden, how to perform your duties and recommended acts, and how to avoid what is prohibited. Therefore, you must have the knowledge and cannot dispense with it; for on the practice of it your happiness in the world and the hereafter depends.”
The Book of Assistance ❤️
By the way…
This famous saying ‘seek knowledge even if you have to go as far as China for it’ is not a hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as believed by many. The Hadeeth is just ‘seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’ The latter part is just ‘Made in China’…Ooops…I mean…is just fabricated 😉. #happyreading #themightofpen

58% of you said your kiddo didn’t love the cake smash on their 1st birthday... you said they kind of felt like this 😬😬😬😬
So, your child cried through or refused to touch their adorable baby cake and you’re confused and kind of sad... 😢
Let’s talk about WHY. 🧐 When an unfamiliar or unpleasant texture touches your baby’s skin, it can send messages to their brain that don’t make sense. Maybe they’re backwards or mixed up, but they just aren’t being efficiently transferred throughout the nervous system. 🧠 .
This causes your child to have an ‘adverse’ reaction, which could be anything from crying, gagging, or avoiding altogether. 🙅🏼♀️
As they continue to grow, they continue to avoid noxious textures, and it gets harder and harder to desensitize their nervous system to have more of an appropriate adaptive response. 👐🏼
So that’s where OT can come in handy! We help the process along, and teach you how to help your child across all environments! So when I’m doubt, communicate your feelings to your pediatrician and advocate for OT! 🖤

🚫Did you know in many countries there are no regulations on who can perform #cosmeticinjectables or laser procedures? Any person can leave you #botched .
🇺🇸In the US the laws vary by state but all loosely mandate that aesthetics be performed by someone with a medical license under an MD.
Experience and particular medical practice background (pediatrician, urologist, ER nursing, etc) has no bearing to the FDA or state medical boards, licensing accreditation’s.
🔊What I am about to say may be controversial but needs to shouted from the rooftops.
I’d propose that savvy patients in the unregulated countries may be safer than naive patients here who are solely expecting regulations to protect them from being botched.
If patients do not do their own research, or worse put $$ over health and results and use unlicensed providers or attempt to self inject don’t they hold the responsibility for poor outcomes?
Every (repeat it again) EVERY injector has some less than stellar results, it’s how we learn over time but consistently great outcomes come with experience. And yet no amount of experience creates an aesthetically artistic eye.
What qualifications do you look for when looking for an aesthetic pro? And when you see someone botched, do you think or say “poor thing”??
🆗Disclaimer: this is not meant to be a competition slamming post, don’t misconstrue and do not post any negativity, we are a community and I like it that way.
