Best life in Chicago

Today’s post will be about Chicago,

It has been a little while since I last wrote but I thought I would give this one a personal touch and write about my great city. As you may know by now, I live in the great city of Chicago. Chicago is AMAZING! There is so much to do here and I feel alive and healthy enjoying everything in this great city.

Everything from food to transportation is unparalleled in this city.  Whatever your heart desires you can get in this great city and the transportation is first class! Last week I enjoyed a ride with the best limo service in town to go and eat sushi and MAN it was great! Not only was the limo amazing but the whole experience with friends, eating Japanese and then going to party all night!! YEAH!

Although many times the traffic in this city can be slow and sluggish, having a limo take you around in luxury is nothing short of amazing. The reason for this is that I took some time to reflect and write down all the blessings I experience on a day to day basis. Normally I write about all the things that affect our cells and bodies and this article certainly contributes to that.

Our happiness and the blessings we experience contribute tremendously to our health and being able to call someone who picks me up and takes me for a ride in comfort and luxury where I can have a drink.. or a couple, and be dropped off in the location of my choosing is simply mindblowing.

You may disagree with me since this is the life you know as you grow up. For me this is a relatively new life and I enjoy every moment of it. I also, cherish it because none of us know how long we have until we don’t have any of this anymore. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Since this is a reality, do yourself a favor and go with luxury at least one weekend and let the great limo company in Aurora, IL take you for a ride in the Chicago area.

Until then keep living a life that your future generations will thank you for. We only have one life and we are not alone but many generations shall come after us to live and cherish this life.

 

 

All about that attitude

hey all, its been a while and I want to give you an update and give you some valuable info. First of all, as I said in the title, this post will be about attitude. The importance of having a great attitude. Here is a short story of me during a crisis.

Here is a short story of me during a crisis. I was starting school and I had no money to pay for my bills and a place to stay since I had to move closer to school. It was last year and I desperately wanted to have a great place and be able to pay for school. The time came closer and I had to do something. A friend of mine offered me a job writing some stuff for him to make some money and then another couple asked me if I wanted to do their maintenance. These are my parents’ friends and although I know them I never thought they would actually respond to my email in such a positive way. I had the freedom to work whenever and they paid me a flat fee per month which was enough to pay for my rent! what?!

So here is what I actually did. I emailed a bunch of friends saying that I was going to college and I needed money. If they had some ideas on how I could earn some they should let me know. Obviously, most of them did not respond but a couple did. All throughout I had a great attitude because I knew that my time would come and I would be ok. That gave me confidence to go out and crush it! I feel so good although it is hard work but I know I can make money.

Anyways, hope this encouraged someone today and remember to have a great attitude!

simple is good

Hey guys,

Its been a while since I last wrote and I am thrilled to write more. Life has been good and I have discovered a little more about myself over the holidays.

Firstly I discovered how fun and joyful simplicity can be. Not only doing less but getting less distracted. Here is what I mean. I used to start one thing such as writing and while writing I would check my email, look into facebook, and read some international news as well. That, I found, is very destructive. I got less done and at the end of the day, I felt as if I was exhausted.

Secondly, I discovered the joy of living a life that is more purposeful. What I mean with that is that I plan my week. I see what needs to be done or what I want to get done and spread it out over the week. This ensures that I don’t burn out during Monday but at the same time I get some things done each day.

I decided to get less distracted with social media by limiting it to one time a day and putting it into a specific time frame to ensure limits.

All this to say that I hope this helps someone else who may struggle with an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and anxiety because of the lack of time management. Don’t give up. NEVER give up! Take some time and simply write down what you want to get done and prioritize it. Make a system to get things done.

Another thing I discovered was that if I work out in the morning then I have a much better day. Weird. I know. But somehow it works. Maybe because of the endorphins that it releases to your brain.

Anyways, leave a comment and hope this post helped you in some way.

Aloe Vera and cells

How Aloe Vera can restore our bodies

I don’t know about you but I have researched and proven this for myself already. In this post I simply want to share my knowledge and expertise with you although it will be a very simple post.

Aloe Vera is the in the top 20 rank of best selling herbals according to Aloecorp  and it has incredible benefits for the body. Most people know about the benefits for sunburn but most don’t know about the benefits for bloating, stomach aches, or constipation.

My friend, Carlos, who is the owner of a roofing company in Aurora has had terrible stomach aches and he has taken Aloe Vera for  it. Last week he told me that he feels rejuvenated and he can’t believe how wonderfully it has worked for him.

How does Aloe do its magic?

I am glad you asked. As far as I can tell it works on a cellular level by rejuvenating the cells and making them strong to heal the body. Since our body is made up of cells who regenerate so to speak by what we consume. Most of us eat a less desirable diet and therefore grow old and sick faster than we were meant to be. The reason why we search for the “fountain of youth” is because we all like to be young and healthy.

I have the solution! It is called ALOE VERA. If you follow a couple simple steps you can look younger and be healthier than you could ever think to be. All you have to do it get an aloe plant or leaf, peal the green part (the shell) and take a spoon full of the jello.

What does it do? It will cleanse the body from the inside out. Then it will rejuvenate the cells which make up your body and make your skin softer/younger looking and it will cure many diseases. When I first heard this I could not believe it. Guess what happened. My mom tried it and I cannot show you my face but I was star struck at the effect! It is unbelievable how much it did for her. Her skin became A LOT softer and younger looking (not in a weird way). There are virtually no side effects because it is natural. It complements the way our body was made: to cure itself.

Nothing can convince me that there is not a huge upside to taking aloe to cure whatever you have going on. If you have digestion problems and you don’t change your diet, at least do yourself the favor of taking Aloe Vera and you shall see results in a couple days. Beware though: it is natural medicine. Meaning that it won’t make you “feel great” in 20 minutes. It starts healing from the cellular level and therefore it may take a bit but it really cures, it does not simply make you “feel good again”.

Confession

I have not taking Aloe for a while and I know I should. I honestly have not made it a priority but I will. Why do say that? Because I bought 2 plants at Lowes and they are growing now. In about a month they will be big enough to cut one leaf at the time without harming the plant.

how to cut the Aloe leaf

The first thing to know is that the plant will bleed when a leaf is cut. A leaf should be cut close to the place where it’s attached to the plant. Once the leaf is detached one inch pieces can be cut off of that leaf. The green has to be peeled off and I recommend putting the white or see-through part can be put on a spoon with some honey and then taken. Aloe Vera by itself can be bitter sometimes and that is why I use honey with it.

I hope this helps and I really hope that you implement this in your diet (whatever that may be).  Many natural plants and herbs have incredible capabilities to heal and restore the body but I am convinced that none have such a diverse kind of healing power.

Please keep reading my posts and write if you want.

 

Keep noise down!

NOISE!!! There is sooo much noise everywhere. We are surrounded by a lot of racket all day long. Especially when it comes to living in the city. As for me, I live in Chicago, the big city and there is an endless amount of noise here. What does this have to do with cell health/ body health? A lot more than we think. We were made to be surrounded by nature and tranquility. Yes, people too but not cities. Cities are a byproduct of war. Therefore, we should get into nature as much as we can since most of us will never, realistically speaking, live on a farm or in the forest. That is simply not possible.

Most of us know that the color green relaxes and makes us creative. Why not go and hang out at a park more or go camping. The Summer is over, fall is upon us and before we know it, it will be cold. Lets use this time to go out and relax, breath the fresh air that nature provides. Hear the birds. Turn all electronics off. Including the phone. It is very hard for me too but it needs to be done if you want to live, not only survive in this life.

Why am I writing about the noise? Because it is a much overlooked factor of stress, anxiety and violence. Anyone who has ever lived in a city can attest to this. There is simply no way of getting around the fact that we can’t get along with everybody. There are people who are not there to help or who don’t have other people’s best interest in their hearts.

Since you have been reading this far, I am assuming that you want a change of sorts. We all want a life that is not easy but that is simpler. We crave for meaning in life and we crave to leave a legacy. We hope that at the end of our lives we have made a positive influence on others. Did my life matter? Did others love me?

In order to get on the right track, if you haven’t yet, is to live intentional. Write down what you are doing each and every moment and change the things you don’t like.

Obviusly this blog is about health from a cellular level. Since health affects our being, lives, productivity, and yes our mood, we want to be aware of things that bring us down and change them.

In my next post I will write about habits and the power of habits.

Shopping cheap

How to get cheap groceries.

As a college student there are countless things I can’t buy. This is obvious.. I assume because college students in general are poor. I would not consider myself poor but I do have restrictions. Poor people live on the street, under a cardboard box and so on. I have seen poor! And I am certainly rich compared to many.

However, I am limited in what I can buy and therefore I have learned to be resourceful. One of the things I do is that I got someone to pay for my Costco card YAY! I shop bulk at Costco with some friends.

Another big thing is internet and cable. I bet you pay a ridiculous amount for it each month. I got a wireless range extender and I share internet with my neighbors. Obviously I pay half and so we both benefit. Why get my own when I get the same thing this way but I pay half the amount?

Why in the world am I telling you about shopping when you want to read about cellular health? Because I believe that everything is intertwined in life. Having a healthy life, including being frugal affects you on a cellular level.

There are few things worse than being worried or stressed out. Trust me, I know. I have been stressed and worried and it sucks. I hate it. There were moments when I thought my heart would give up because I was so stressed.

I finally learned to chill out and relax. I listened to motivational speeches on YouTube, read books and slept 8 hours a night. This helped tremendously!

Having a healthy body has to do with a lot more than exercise and healthy diet.

Keep up the good work and don’t stress.

More Sun, please!

Give me sun!

So I have been inside for a while. I mean for a couple days. The sun and I have not been friends for a while. Not on purpose but because I am so busy I have not had time to hang out outside. I have gotten pale and grumpy. I hate being inside all the time! I grew up on a farm, outside, in the sun and surrounded by nature. Eating what I found in the garden and I miss it.

I even realize that I am more easily irritated with my friends and coworkers. That is not good. It did not dawn on me until yesterday that the lack of sun is affecting me this much. WOW! I feel like I learned through my personally experience and I hope you don’t do what I did. Get at least a little sun everyday. Maybe something like 30minutes per day.

Environment

How does what we use on our bodies, the air we breath and everything we touch affect our cells?

Well, lets see. Humans have existed for thousands of years. Chemical products have only excited for a very short time. More and more strange diseases are coming out every day.

Now, before we start worrying and thinking about the apocalypse lets get back to what we do know for sure and what we can do.

Products:

Most products we use have an array of ingredients that are actually damaging to our cells. That why I find it important to read the ingredients of products I will use on myself or food I will consume.

Actually I believe that most of us know what we should and should not consume and use but we tend to not pay much attention to it until we get sick or somebody else gets sick of some product they used. This has not happened much in my circles but I am learning and reading a lot in regards to maintaining healthy cells.

You are important.

Why do I say that? You might say: You don’t even know me. Thats true. However, the question is: do we get our worth from what we do, how we look or what?

After all this talk about cells and being careful with ingredients how does that tie in with our worth? Confusing isn’t it. Well that is because we are being conditioned to think in terms of boxes, categories, stages and so on. Our lives, as westerners are lived in boxes. Here is the enjoyment box. Here the career, here the family and somewhere religion. Now what if we lived all of them on the same plain and integrated? Wouldn’t that be fun?

I am suggesting that because I want you to live a fulfilled life. My idea was never to only talk about cells and smack us on the head for how unhealthy we eat or what kind of crappy shampoo we use. I believe that we all know deep in our hearts that many of the things we do and have are not good for us.

Solution: Continue reading

Eating healthy

Hey everyone! It has been a couple days since my last post. I keep learning new things and I would love to share.

History:

Here is something new I learned this week. The constitution was signed by a group of men who cared about the freedom of the people of this country. However, the two doctors that were present were not able to get the “freedom to practice of medicine” into it for whatever reason. That means that now the pharmaceutical world has complete reign over this country. Is that bad?

Having a complete monopoly can be good if the thought and the product are great. Continue reading

Hi there!

Hi world. I just started blogging! There is much information to be shared and I want to be your guide and share my knowledge about how our cell life affects our body and ultimately our happiness.

First of all, what are cells? well, we all went to school or learned to read somewhere. That means that we all have some basic understanding of cells. Okay, so to refresh our memory here it goes. Cells are tiny structures that make up life. They are life the structure of a building. If you don’t have cells, there is no YOU. They are the smallest unit that can replicate itself and it is full of information, nutrients and they are simply mind boggling. Every organism has a different number of cells but I believe that the human body has around a 100 trillion ( I did pay attention to SOME things in school).

A cell:

A cell needs nutrients to reproduce. An cell from an animal is different than a plant cell. Each cell has a function, they make life happen. Cells in the brain are different than in the stomach. Cells are also to small for the human eye to capture. You need a microscope to see them. I still rememeber in high school whe we where in the lab looking at different cells.
