Life is change. Sure, that seems like a simple sentence. But, indeed, it is the most complex sentence in existence in reality. Change happens once in life all the time that it happens, each time that it does happen. Nothing ever stays the same. That is the point of this article with a small twist: The only thing that does stay the same is the fact that time passes, and we all need to take the proper actions in relation to time and its capacity for change and progression, or we do miss everything.

As we can tell by concepts and realities of the past and future, time is not just an idle concept we can ignore. As the old saying goes, “remember death, remember change.” Sure, unless we take the proper actions, we are all doomed to changes we do not want. That is the total reality of the situation.

Sure, rationality is adaptation in every genuine sense and way that counts. Unnecessary rigidity never counts, for it always creates problems, especially in relation to time. In fact, unnecessary rigidness is a crime against existence ultimately in this sense: It ultimately leads to the unrealistic, “I can beat this irrationally” thinking or the “short cut” doing of the cheater, which never works ultimately.

Look 10 Years Younger

Look 10 Years Younger

The third of a series of fascinating articles by Derek Boughton about how to look, feel and be years younger naturally.

In the first article we introduced the concept of Facial Isometrics. In the 2nd, we worked on the specific exercises for the neck and chin area. So let’s continue with these anti-aging techniques by moving up a bit!

A. Sides of mouth

While doing these, make sure that you concentrate on using the muscles all the way out to the edge of your face – don’t just use your lip muscles.

a) The action is to pull the side of the lip straight out to the side. As usual, firstly do the left side for at least 10 times, then the right side, then alternate left and right and finally stretch out both sides at the same time.

b) Now to use the opposing muscles, pull the left end of your lip away from your jaw-line and towards the centre of your mouth. Repeat on the right side; alternate; then both sides in together.

To finish off here, alternate the last movements of 5 a) and b), that is, both ends in then both ends out 10 times making sure you complete it with both sides out – I say this because I would rather my mouth ‘remembers’ to smile out than pucker in! Remember the saying “I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.”

B. Mouth to ears

This is one of my favourites and is … Continue Reading >>>
