On Gratitude

Truth of the moment

Matters more than what’s gone by

Or what’s yet to come

For both are not there in your hand.

So how about being grateful

For the moment that is now!

Practicing Gratitude every day

Consistently in time

Transforms the spirit of the being.

Life becomes even more meaningful.

So take a moment every day

To sense the world with heartfelt Gratitude.

The Senior Brain

An interesting read today definitely worth a share!

Please take time to read the following article:

THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.

The director of the George Washington University College of Medicine argues that the brain of an elderly person is much more plastic than is commonly believed. At this age, the interaction of the right and left hemispheres of the brain becomes harmonious, which expands our creative possibilities. That is why among people over 60 you can find many personalities who have just started their creative activities.

Of course, the brain is no longer as fast as it was in youth. However, it wins in flexibility. That is why, with age, we are more likely to make the right decisions and are less exposed to negative emotions. The peak of human intellectual activity occurs at about 70 years old, when the brain begins to work at full strength.

Over time, the amount of myelin in the brain increases, a substance that facilitates the rapid passage of signals between neurons. Due to this, intellectual abilities are increased by 300% compared to the average.

And the peak of active production of this substance falls on 60-80 years of age. Also interesting is the fact that after 60 years, a person can use 2 hemispheres at the same time. This allows you to solve much more complex problems.

Professor Monchi Uri from the University of Montreal believes that the brain of an elderly person chooses the least energy-intensive path, cutting unnecessary and leaving only the right options for solving the problem. A study was conducted in which different age groups took part. Young people were confused a lot when passing the tests, while those over 60 made the right decisions.

Now let’s look at the features of the brain at the age of 60-80. They are really rosy.

FEATURES OF THE BRAIN OF AN ELDERLY PERSON.

  1. The neurons of the brain do not die off, as everyone around them says. Connections between them simply disappear if a person does not engage in mental work.
  2. Absent-mindedness and forgetfulness appear due to an overabundance of information. Therefore, you do not need to focus your whole life on unnecessary trifles.
  3. Beginning at the age of 60, a person, when making decisions, uses not one hemisphere at the same time, like young people, but both.
  4. Conclusion: if a person leads a healthy lifestyle, moves, has a feasible physical activity and has full mental activity, intellectual abilities DO NOT decrease with age, but only GROW, reaching a peak by the age of 80-90 years. So don’t be afraid of old age. Strive to develop intellectually. Learn new crafts, make music, learn to play musical instruments, paint pictures! Dance! Take an interest in life, meet and communicate with friends, make plans for the future, travel as best you can. Don’t forget to go to shops, cafes, concerts. Do not lock yourself alone – it is destructive for any person. Live with the thought: all the good things are still ahead of me!

👀 Information!

A large study in the United States found that:

▪The most productive age of a person is from 60 to 70 years;
▪ The 2nd most productive human stage is the age from 70 to 80 years old;
▪ 3rd most productive stage – 50 and 60 years old.
▪ Before that, the person has not yet reached his peak.
▪The average age of the Nobel Prize laureates is 62;
▪The average age of the presidents of the 100 largest companies in the world is 63 years;
▪The average age of pastors in the 100 largest churches in the United States is 71;
▪The average age of dads is 76 years.
▪ This confirms that a person’s best and most productive years are between 60 and 80 years of age.
▪This study was published by a team of doctors and psychologists in the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE.
▪They found that at 60 you reach the peak of your emotional and mental potential, and this continues until you are 80.
▪ Therefore, if you are 60, 70 or 80 years old, you are at the best level of your life.

Pass on this information to your family and friends aged 60, 70 and 80 so that they will be proud of their age.

Truth of movements

True learning happens when we realize we are the teacher and we are the student. And life teaches the greatest lessons without anyone uttering a word or at times in just the sheer presence of a good soul .

Likewise as we dance from our heart without a spoken word and open ourselves to realization and acceptance of new possibilities… true dancing happens!

Cherish The Gift

Cherish the gift of movement…

Isn’t it wonderful to be able to dance…. to tell your body what you want it to do?

If you are a dancer respect the gift of dance in you .

Even if you are not a trained dancer, acknowledge the ability of expressions and respect the beauty of movements in them .

After all we have a beating heart ….We are all gifted with movements . Let’s cherish the gifts of both the movements and moments in time.

The English Language

A fun share

I received a marriage invitation. In the end was printed. ” Your presence itself is a gift. We don’t want any gifts at the marriage.”
I read it again and again. Was getting confused…

Finally I came to the conclusion, that I am not invited. And decided not to attend.
😂😂😂
English is a language which must be carefully handled; otherwise, it leads to wrong and opposite meaning.

Dedicated to All English professors.

Learnings from children

Every now and then

As the world becomes a burden

We adults need reminders

To notice the enthusiasm in children

A child teaches many things

That we could learn from

Happiness is a state of mind

Engagement is being in this now

Perseverance is a journey towards success

Today is a celebration of childrens day

Am thankful for all the lessons learned

And am grateful for the new learnings.

🙏🌺🙏

I dedicate this post to my child and my teacher of many many things great and small …

and to all the children across the world.

Happy Childrens Day!!!💕😊💕

Choice rests with you

There are certain good things

Which manifests themselves

In this journey of life

But to do so you need to allow

The pathway to unfold the potential

Just care to be open to possibilities

Allow space for new 

Allow hope to find you

Make way for the good energies

Make an intention to believe in yourself

Your life is as good as you allow it to be.

The choice rests with you

A reason to be!

Embrace the complexities

As much as the simplicities


Life is beautiful yet challenging


In every now there is pain & pleasure


In understanding this wisdom


Moderation of thinking is possible


Life is absurd as much as it is vivid


Sometimes the next step is unclear


And yet every step leads to more


Life continues its path in the living


From darkness to light


Changing in every moment


Remember to be grateful


To the challenges and complexity


As without them the simple doesn’t appear


To realize the value of one another


We need to respect  its significance


For each has a reason to be!
