Priority – said a friend

Posted in Dreams, Great thinking, Insecurity!, Introspection, Thoughts, Work by nagaje on August 2, 2010

Your priorities are not determined by what you say they are. Your most genuine priorities are expressed by what you actually do with your life and your time.

Look around you, and you’ll see very clearly what your priorities have been up to this point. Those priorities have brought you to where you are right now.

 If something is truly a priority for you, you absolutely are able to find a way to reach it. If it’s not a priority, it’s probably not going to happen for you.

 You can set your priorities and you can change them at any time to be whatever you choose. But merely wishing for something does not make it a priority.

The priorities that are really priorities are the ones that dictate where you focus your awareness. The priorities that truly matter are the ones in which you invest your interest, your attention and, most importantly, your action.

 You can follow whatever priorities you choose, and in every moment you are constantly choosing. Remember, as you go through each day, to choose those priorities that will bring the special joy and fulfillment that is yours to live.

Lacking sleep?? It’s time to Wake up!!!

Short Sleep

 Short sleep duration (<5 or 5-6 hours) increased risk for high BP by 350% to 500% compared to those who slept longer than 6 hours per night. Paper published in 2009..

 Young people (25-49 years of age) are twice as likely to get high BP if they sleep less. Paper published in 2006.

 Individuals who slept less than 5 hours a night had a 3-fold increased risk of heart attacks. Paper published in 1999.

 Just one night of sleep loss increases very toxic substances in body such as Interleukin-6 (IL-6), Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-alpha) and C-reactive protein (cRP). They increase risks of many medical conditions, including cancer, arthritis and heart disease. Paper published in 2004.

 Sleeping for <=5 hours per night leads to 39% increase in heart disease. Sleeping for <=6 hours per night leads to 18% increase in heart disease. Paper published in 2006.

Complete and partial lack of sleep increased the blood concentrations of High sensitivity C – reactive protein (hs-cRP), the strongest predictor of heart attacks. Even after getting adequate sleep later, the levels stayed high!!

 Ideal Sleep

 I cannot explain here the ideal sleep architecture. But in brief, sleep is composed of two stages: REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and non-REM. The former helps in mental consolidation while the latter helps in physical repair and rebuilding. During the night, you alternate between REM and non-REM stages 4-5 times.

 The earlier part of sleep is mostly non-REM. During which, your pituitary gland releases growth hormones that repair your body. The latter part of sleep is more and more REM type.

For you to be mentally alert during the day, the latter part of sleep is more important. No wonder when you wake up with an alarm clock after 5-6 hours of sleep, you are mentally irritable throughout the day (lack of REM sleep). And if you have slept for less than 5 hours, your body is in a complete physical mess (lack of non-REM sleep), you are tired throughout the day, moving like a zombie and your immunity is way down

Finally, as long-distance runners, you need an hour of extra sleep to repair the running related damage.

Breathing Therapy Makes you Relax

Posted in Belief, Get Set GO!!, life, sucess, Work by nagaje on October 20, 2009

The nose has a left and a right side; we use both to inhale and exhale.

Actually they are different; you would be able to feel the difference.The right side represents the sun, left side represents the moon.

During a headache, try to close your right nose and use your left nose to breathe. In about 5 mins, your headache will go.  

If you feel tired, just reverse, close your left nose and breathe through your right nose. After a while, you will feel your mind is refreshed.

Right side belongs to ‘hot’, so it gets heated up easily, left side belongs to ‘cold’.

Do you notice the moment we wake up, which side breathes faster? Left or right? ?

If left is faster, you will feel tired.  So, close your left nose and use your right nose for breathing, you will get refreshed quickly.

This alternative natural therapy without medication is something that he has experienced.

So, why not give it a try?

How to cut Jackfruit ?

Posted in Food, fruit, Work by nagaje on June 7, 2009

jack fruitCheck if the white, gummy latex flows from the jackfruit stalk when the slightly underripe fruit is harvested.

howtocutjackfruit_what you will need

You will need some cooking oil and a sharpened knife to cut the jack fruit. All through out make sure you donot lose focus. Else you will cut your fingers.

howtocutjackfruit_split it at the centre

Make a cut at the centre and run the blade all along the jack fruit. The centre of the fruit is a bit tricky and you will need some strength to cut through. Split the jack fruit open. howtocutjackfruit_clean the gum at the centre using stickThe ripe fruit is somewhat laxative. Clean the latex or gum from the centre using a stick. Roatate the stick and the gum will come off. This is important because it causes digestive ailments and diarrhea. It is the raw, unripe fruit that is astringent and indigestible. Mix the gum or latex with vinegar and you can heal a snake bite. howtocutjackfruit_chop the end of each fruitNext remove the bulbs carefully by choping off the gum at the tip. The threads that are used for making chips can also be removed. Be extra careful with the knife.

Voila. You have cut your first jackfruit. Wasn’t that easy ? They say that each jackfruit tree produces 150 – 500 fruits annually and is useful during morning hangovers – “useful in overcoming the influence of alcohol on the system.”

How many of us are happy with our jobs???……Le’mme take a guess!! … Not many ………

In fact when it comes to JOB …………..I am damn sure nobody is happy …….  

There is something they keep looking out for in the name of career pathing…. .. Or whatever…Else how do you answer to the stifling problem Attrition????? Which each big buck company is striving hard to reduce??? 

Why does a job become dissatisfaction???? B’coz that’s not what we really want to do!! 

 Though most of the times some of us are not even aware of what we want to!! 😦 

Now why these side-tracked careers happen in the first place??!!?? Blame our up-bringing or our good old education system… there is no space for Innovation….. Thinking….Individuality. Let alone get passionate about anything at all……

 Many of us study to get a job or even professional career but are we really trying to tap the inert potential …. 

Believe me each of us are good …. Infact … We can best in some or the other ……. Human beings are GIFTED!! and have no doubt  on this… take a good look at yourself…… I do  think you do trust yourself!! 🙂 

There are enough of people out there who had everything going good who bought a flat and a fancy car and fat salary with loads of platinum credit cards to add spice … but one fine day they left everything and took their road to heaven….. and believe me it was the road least expected!! Daringly different and that gave solace to their lives!!  

The change in career was entirely 180 degree shift …. IT to a Restaurant Owner.. IIT to Catering….. HR to Drama….Quality to Marketing….Advertising to Holistic healing… hmm… now that’s what I call CHANGE!!! 

 And all they can say is the inner craving … childhood dream….everything seemed dull and drab… it just happened one day….. kinds….Well any regrets … BIG HECK NO!!! Never want to return back …….. and are content !! 

Wrote so much.. Am I content???? With what I am doing……….Hey boss that is what I am trying to scream out loud……   No I am NOT…..Are you …???? I know U are not too………….;-)

 Time to take a look  at what you are doing  !!! and think what you want to do!!
