Why Organ Donation Is Important and What Kind of Organs Can You Donate?

Are you wondering about how to incorporate healing music into your day? Good news! I've got 3 easy tips for you! First of all, how do you define healing music? Composers have been writing music specifically designed for healing or soothing/calming purposes for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Then again, there is music that has been written for many other reasons, that millions of people find to be healing, calming, comforting and soothing.

As you probably know, when we are feeling stressed out, our bodies produce a substance called cortisol. Cortisol is very damaging to the body and causes damage to organs and all of our body systems. When we listen to soothing music, our bodies begin to relax and natural healing processes take over. After all, our bodies are naturally designed to heal themselves. If you get a scratch or a cut on your body, you don't need to do anything to make it heal, although putting a little Neosporin on it will prevent infection. But that doesn't actually cause the healing. It simply speeds the healing and prevents your cut or scratch from getting infected.

Most of us, without even thinking, turn on some kind of music first thing in the morning. It's usually something that we really like, but not necessarily. It can actually be something that we just "tolerate," waiting for something better to come on. So my first tip is:

Become intentional about what you listen to! Think for just a minute, before you turn on your radio, or phone app, or even YouTube, exactly what you're in the mood for. Are you looking for energy and some sonic caffeine; or are you looking for something that will calm you and help you start your day with relaxed focus.
Are you wanting to connect with people that will uplift you and make you feel"apart of" and not "apart from?" This leads us to tip #2:

Join a community chorus, band, or drum circle. If you played an instrument in the past and would like to again, please dust off your old instrument. If you always wanted to but couldn't, sign up for some lessons at the local community college or music store. You will be so glad you did. With or without training there are groups you can join today and sing or play a percussion instrument. It will lift your spirits and make you feel a part of something bigger than you!
And finally tip #3:

Have you been to hear a live, professional, symphony orchestra, ballet, or opera? Live musical performances are the best of all because you have the vibrations of 70 or 80 instruments as well as hundreds of people around you who are loving this music. Look in the newspaper for a live, upcoming performance by one of your local performing arts groups. Invite a friend, or several friends, plan dinner before, read a little about what the performance will be about, and make a fun evening of it. Who knows, a whole new world may very well open up to you!

Good health is a prerequisite for happiness and fulfillment. So how does one pursue health? How does one build a healthy physique? And how does health set the stage for success?

Ten healthy habits:

Remove sugar from your diet. The down sides of sugar are numerous including:
Sugar Feeds candida. We all have candida. Healthy bacteria feed the gut. problems occur when candida overwhelms the system. Excessive yeast in the system can cause mental illness. This has hit me on a personal level. I was psychotic when I was a teenager due to excessive sugar consumption.
Sugar makes your blood acidic. A healthy body is seventy percent alkaline and roughly 30 percent acidic. Viruses cannot live in an alkaline environment. Alkaline foods are all vegetables. Acidic foods are all sugars, meats, poultry, and dairy. Sugar is the king of all acidic foods.
Sugar promotes aging and wrinkling. Take sugar out of your diet if you want to remain free of wrinkles.
Sugar can lead to osteoporosis. Take sugar out of your diet if you want to remain fracture free as you age.
Sugar rots your teeth. Do you want to maintain strong bones? Take sugar out of your diet. Give yourself the gift of health.
Remove gluten from your diet. There are five primary reasons why gluten is dangerous. One: Celiac disease is on the rise and most people are undiagnosed. Two: Gluten sensitivity is common and can ave serious effects. Three: Gluten can cause brain disorders including depression, schizophrenia, and autism. Four: Gluten can be addictive and can lead to other addictions. Gluten can cause problems with the cerebellum, with speech, and with brain ataxia, resulting in mental decline.
Incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Some of the benefits of exercise include: weight control, reduction of heart disease and high blood pressure, elevated mood and energy levels, increased libido, and having fun
Take up the practice of tai chi. Benefits of tai chi include increased balance, strength, and aerobic capacity. relief from fibromyalgia, and stress reduction.
Do balance exercises daily. Balance can become an issue especially as we age. Doing a daily ten to fifteen minute balance routine can pay off in terms of reducing the chance of falling and fracturing a hip.
Do some aerobic exercises daily.
Make your diet mostly alkaline.
Maintain a cheerful attitude.
Be tested for allergies and remove all allergens from your home and from your diet.
Eliminate all dairy.

Raised in an alcoholic home, I became depressed and riddled with anxiety at an early age. In an effort to build a good life, I turned to my love of classical music for comfort, financial resources, and a place in the community. Over the years, I have dealt with depression in a variety of ways, from counseling to alternative and traditional healing modalities. One of the purposes in my life is to convey hope to those who have suffered from depression and I hope to do this in my writings and in speaking engagements
