WHY GOD CREATED CHILDREN … HUMOR

Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God’s omnipotence did not extend to His own children.

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.

And the first thing he said was ‘DON’T! ‘

‘Don’t what ?’ Adam replied.

‘Don’t eat the forbidden fruit.’ God said.

‘Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit!’

‘ No Way ! ‘

‘Yes way! ‘

‘Do NOT eat the fruit! ‘ said God.

‘Why? ‘

‘Because I am your Father and I said so ! ‘ God replied, wondering why He hadn’t stopped creation after making the elephants.

A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked !

‘Didn’t I tell you not to eat the fruit? ‘ God asked.

‘Uh huh,’ Adam replied.

‘Then why did you? ‘ said the Father.

‘I don’t know,’ said Eve.

‘She started it! ‘ Adam said.

‘Did not ! ‘

‘Did too! ‘

‘DID NOT! ‘

Having had it with the two of them, God’s punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven’t taken it, don’t be hard on yourself.

If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you ?

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !

1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.

5. The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.

6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.

ADVICE FOR THE DAY:

Be nice to your kids..

They will choose your nursing home one day!

YOGA FOR TRIMMING FAT

There are small variations in the way yogis do this sequence, but the most important thing is the synchronization of the motion of your breath with the movement of your body. Basically, all upward movements are coupled with inhalation, and downward movements with exhalation.

1. MOUNTAIN POSE

Start in Mountain pose: stand up tall, feet together or a little apart, arms at your sides. Place your palms together in a prayer position, roll your shoulders back and down and lift your chest.

2. INHALE

Inhale through your nose and extend your arms above and behind your head.

3. SWAN DIVE

Swan dive into a standing forward bend, exhaling through your nose and placing your hands on your legs as close to your feet as you can. Bend your knees a little if your hamstrings are tight, to protect your back.

4. HALF STANDING FORWARD BEND

Inhale and lengthen your spine forward into a Half Standing Forward Bend, with your fingertips on the floor and gaze focused ahead.

5. PLANK POSE

Exhale and step, or lightly hop, your feet behind you to get into a Plank pose, arms straight underneath your shoulders and legs straight behind you. Your back should be flat and your core engaged. Hold for a second, then, in a snake-like movement, lower yourself towards the floor. Then lower your chest and chin to the floor, keeping your elbows close to the sides of your ribcage, and flatten your feet to the floor.

6. COBRA POSE

Inhale as you push down with your arms and raise your head, shoulders and upper body as far as you can without straining. This is the Cobra pose. Look upwards, roll shoulders back and down and keep elbows in. Firm up your kneecaps and thighs to prevent them lifting off the mat.

7. DOWNWARD FACING DOG

Exhale into Downward Facing Dog; walk hands forward and slightly farther apart than shoulder width, and spread fingers wide for stability. Then curl toes under and press your hips upwards so your body is in the shape of a triangle, with your bottom as the apex. Make sure your neck and shoulders are released and relaxed. If your hamstrings are tight, keep your knees slightly bent. Take five deep breaths.

8. FORWARD BEND

Inhale, step forward one foot and then the other between the hands, looking ahead. Then exhale into a forward bend.

9. INHALE

Inhale and come up, arms above and behind head.

10. STANDING POSE

Lower arms into original standing pose.

NEWS: SUICIDE LINKED TO POLLUTION

Findings: Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in the United States; At least 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable mental disorder, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

Suicide may be linked to air pollution, according to new research that finds spikes in completed suicides in the days following peak pollution levels. Though the notion that suicide and air quality could be linked may not seem intuitive, similar studies in South Korea, Taiwan and Canada have also linked the two. It has long been recognized that deaths by suicide peak in the springtime months, which could be a result of social factors. However, a small but growing body of evidence suggests that physical inflammation might also be to blame.

WHY IS YOGA THE BEST ANTIDOTE FOR MODERN DAY AILMENTS

Yoga had been tried by about 1.7 million children in 2012, representing an increase of about 400,000 since 2007.

21 million American adults now say they’ve tried yoga in the past year.

Increasingly, people are recognizing integrative medicine’s value, and that we’re not so much involved in something that is way out there, but rather that we’re often on the forefront of researching and understanding how the body really works.
