Swearing helps us battle pain – no matter what language we curse in

Swear words have many functions. They can be used for emphasis, for comedic effect, as a shared linguistic tool that strengthens social bonds and maintains relationships, or simply to cause offence and shock. They are words that can be emotionally electrifying. We can express utter horror, disdain, or just frustration through the utterance of aContinue reading “Swearing helps us battle pain – no matter what language we curse in”

Medical marijuana laws reduced alcohol consumption

SAM COMMENT > Look for the liquor, beer and wine industries to be lobbying against the passage of laws making marijuana possession and use legal. They of course are well aware of alcohol sales, yet they represented to lawmakers and to the public that alcohol plus other drug usage would increase if marijuana became legal. MarijuanaContinue reading “Medical marijuana laws reduced alcohol consumption”

Plants Are Medicine With Benefits And Side Effects

Then I googled BENEFITS AND SIDE EFFECTS OF EATING CHICKEN (even though when looking up aContinue reading “Plants Are Medicine With Benefits And Side Effects”

Eat-To-Store

It’s not the feeling of hunger we need to shut off. We who are fat rarely ‘feel’ hungry. We think it. And right now the brain is more powerful than the gut in those who are overweight. We feel full nearly all the time. It’s when the level of full drops a slight amount thatContinue reading “Eat-To-Store”

Are You Hungry?

Am I hungry? I am not. Am I hungry? No. You sure? I am not hungry, so shut up. You say no, but your actions say yes. You eat anyway. Boundaries need to be repaired. You’ve got a huge leak, when you say no, but act yes. Retrain your brain to accept no as theContinue reading “Are You Hungry?”

Listen While You Work

TIP > I like to watch videos, as I’m sure most of us do, otherwise there wouldn’t be a zillion of them produced on You Tube and other venues.

BEANS AND THE LONGEVITY FACTOR

MY TAKE-AWAY >  You don’t have to eat prefermented food, such as sauerkraut and yogurt. All you have to do is eat raw foods that when ingested will naturally ferment in your digestive tract. You don’t need to take probiotics, because when you eat the raw food, the body naturally produces the probiotics. When youContinue reading “BEANS AND THE LONGEVITY FACTOR”

I Got Up This Morning…

Shar Walking Log – Aug. thru Oct. 2017

I decided not to document number of floors climbed until I get serious about doing them – which I eventually will. On the iphone the floor recordings are not that accurate.
