Healthy Living – Lunchtime

Did You Know a Stress-Free Lunch Will Recharge You?

Enjoy lunch in peace: Whatever you do, don’t eat lunch at your desk. One of the worst things you can do is work through your lunch. Set aside at least 25 minute when you are free of tasks to enjoy a nutritious meal. This will give your mind the ability to reset and refresh itself while you are enjoying your favorite healthy meal.

Today’s Reflection: A Path to Happiness

Give up being right. Instead radiate peace, harmony, love, and laughter from your heart. Deepak Chopra

Troubled ~ Hafiz

TROUBLED 

Hafiz

Troubled?
Then stay with me, for I’m not.
Lonely?
A thousand naked amorous ones dwell in ancient caves
Beneath my eyelids.
Riches?
Here’s a pick,
My whole body is an emerald that begs,
“Take me.”
Write all that worries you on a piece of parchment;
Offer it to God.
Even from the distance of a millennium I can lean the flame in my heart
Into your life And turn
All that frightens you
Into holy
Incense
Ash.

The Divine Image ~ William Blake

To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
All pray in their distress;
And to these virtues of delight
Return their thankfulness.

For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
Is God, our father dear,
And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love
Is Man, his child and care.

For Mercy has a human heart,
Pity a human face,
And Love, the human form divine,
And Peace, the human dress.

Then every man, of every clime,
That prays in his distress,
Prays to the human form divine,
Love, Mercy, Pity, Peace.

And all must love the human form,
In heathen, turk, or jew;
Where Mercy, Love, & Pity dwell
There God is dwelling too.

Longevity Tip

When she died at age 116 in 2015 Gertrude Weaver of Camden, Arkansas was the world’s oldest woman. When asked, she attributed her longevity to kindness: “Treat people right and be nice to other people the way you want them to be nice to you.” Her advice to those aspiring to a long life was a bit more specific: “Use a lot of skin moisturizer, treat everyone nice, love your neighbor and eat your own cooking. Don’t eat at fast food places.”
