Beautiful inside and out... What does this mean?
Having a positive attitude can help to make a healthier lifestyle. Surrounding yourself with positive influences and people will move life in a better direction, resulting in a beautiful attitude and smiles too.
"If you surround yourself with the good and righteous, they can only raise you up. If you surround yourself with the others, they will drag you down into the doldrums of mediocrity, and they will keep you there, but only as long as you permit it."
— Mark Glamack
Did you know that laughing can improve immune system function?
Laughing can increase the body's killer cells which defend the body from common illnesses. Endorphins are released when you are laughing and that can give you an overall feeling of well-being.
A hug really can do the trick.. human touch can also increase endorphins which will decrease the negative impact of stress too.
Take a deep breath!! Around 70 % of all wastes are dispelled from the body through your breath. Breathing deeply betters your mood, clears your mind, and boosts energy. Sense of smell is super influential on our moods. If you smell something that makes you happy, it does because it triggers memories and moods. This has been used in aromatherapy which is a natural way to boost the healing powers of plants.
"Ha" is the Hawaiian word for breath of life. This word was so important because just saying the word can reflect the power to heal. This word as with many others were not written down. Instead these words were kept to one's self and only passed on as a spoken word. This way the word would retain it's healing powers, or " Mana".
"It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term both for yourself and others will come."
- Dali Lama
I believe that health and wellness sprouts from a feeling of well being and love for yourself. Loving yourself and taking good care of yourself results in a happy spirit. A happy spirit will spread light to all aspects of your life and to others. Including your appearance!! If that is not beauty, I don't know what is.
Live Aloha! -B
"You, yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."
