    I listen to music and not necessarily calming music. I can easily get lost in the lyrics, which keeps me from listening to the thoughts going through my mind.

    Thanks, Proma, for the excellent information and advice which is critically important to the health and well-being of every person. I agree that it helps a lot to start "shutting down" about an hour prior to one's designated bedtime. That means no electronic devices, as you note, including mobile phones, computers or TV.
    Personally, I find that listening to soothing music helps me fall asleep faster and take my mind off the rigors of the day and challenges of tomorrow. The bottom line here is that those who are sleep deprived will fail to function at 100% capacity, which is detrimental to one's work and other life activities. Thus, it just makes good sense to make sleep a priority for a variety of reasons. Lastly, those who just can't get to sleep and/or have insomnia should consult their doctors regarding the appropriate medication to remedy this issue.

    #4 Thank you for your comment, @Lisa Vanderburg! I will be very happy if this post can make a difference in someone's life. I am sorry to hear about your insomnia and your husband's Parkinson's Disease. I understand how difficult it is as I have seen people very close to me suffering from the same. Have you tried meditating before going to bed? That is one thing that literally gives me that gentle nudge (more like a push) to fall asleep. Applying slight pressure on parts of your palm and fingers can also help induce sleep by relaxing the nerves. I will get back to you with more information, if you think that could help.

    I agree @Proma - sleep is a very important issue for many people today. It is almost like we are trying to deny being human by being able to stay awake all day and night. we have forgotten the richness of sleep, of dreams, of allowing our sleep to help us process what has occurred during the day, so we can wake up with new insight. Sleep is like eating. We can not live without eating and drinking - we love to eat and prepare meals. We can do the same with sleep by creating a ritual that suits our selves. Whilst eating is often a group activity, sleep and preparing for sleep is more a time for ourselves.

    The last 15 mins of the day, alone all by yourself. Critical moments in our continuing health.

    If i could add a thought to this critical 15 mins.

    Judgement is all around us during the day. Reviewing and deciding right and wrong will sometimes load us up in the judgemental wave.

    Take a few moments to recognize that ideas can twist and turn without judgement of others. Separate the journey of wisdom from the people.

    Great thoughts thanks

    #3 That's excellent, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! I thought my body needed 9 hours of sleep for me to function properly, but these days even 7 hours have become a luxury.

    #1 I agree, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. Reading makes me sleep better. Meditating before sleep makes me fall asleep mid-meditation. The peace and calm it brings is too tantalizing to continue in a state of awareness. Television helps a lot when it comes to fleeting thoughts as they help a lot in diverting our attention. Especially the late night tele-shopping programs with their repetitive ads, help even more to lull people to sleep. Thank you for your comment!

    Everyone should heed your advise about sleep, for once that door is cracked it's hard to shut @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal! Healthy sleep is essential to maintain; a battle I lost to insomnia since 1997. My husband has Parkinson's Disease, and it's a constant mantra to all newbies in PD to don't let that door open (eventually it does anyhoo). In sufferers, this becomes an enormous monster as they progress (degenerate); the parasomnias take over the ship! I wrote about it : https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-we-do-dark-parkinsons-lisa-vanderburg/

    I used to sleep much better when I read before falling asleep, yes, even on my kindle. I have been trying to keep my phone "at arms length" and it works fairly good for the most. I fall asleep a bit earlier when I do this. Some people have incessant thoughts like a merry go round and they are hard to shut off no matter what you try. I find the TV works better when those thoughts are present, it sort of drowns them out. A good night's sleep is vital to a good day. Nice article @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal and great infographics!

    #16 Thanks @Tausif Mundrawala. You have added some excellent points in your comments. Toxic thoughts make home in our mind so easily. They are the reason for most of the problems in life. Physical exercise and meditation is a simple and ideal combo-solution. Even 30 minutes a day can make a big difference. And yes, this science is the treasure of India and so thankfully, equally accessible to all.My effort is to help as many people find it for themselves and their loved ones. .

    Prevention is better than cure. Why to make ourselves addicted to medicines when one can wade through the negativity with the help of meditation. Meditation helps to remove the toxic thoughts from our being which inhibits our growth. None of the other factors or cosmetics can make us more attractive than a workout regime followed by deep meditation. The feeling is indescribable as it makes us feel more blessed from within.

I went to the beach, he went Elk Hunting in the Mountains of Colorado. I haven't had this much time to myself since before kids. It gave me time to relax a bit more and think healthy thoughts. Just having some solitude helped me. Thanks for this!

    @Puneet Srivastava It's always fascinating for me to find that something that we thought of as 'new age' emerges from age-old wisdom. This wisdom that you've shared would today be referred as 're-framing' - changing the meaning/implication/experience by integrating it into a new context. And yes I agree with you, it has a major part to play in the realm of wellness versus illness. Thanks for sharing.

    I never understood and probably will never understand the notion of foot fetish, but I totally understand the reality of foot care. Toes are a weird thing and for most a people a forgotten appendage of the body, that is until one cannot touch them without some kind of pain. The rubber tire we accumulate around a belly becomes the first impediment to reaching our toes. I can sympathize with illness that makes for greater impediments. This is not a subject much discussed but today at least it is !

    Just like every vital sign, sleep patterns follow certain rhythms. You can't expect to have the same sleep every day, throughout the year. Some days you may need less, others you may need more. What's important, in my view, is what you do during the time you are awake.

    This can be done in a type of hypnosis when it is unknown to a person like you did with your Mother.
    It's using language to open the person to considering possibilities. Direct hypnosis is easier & faster.

    If the wife is our better half, then sleep is our other half Puneet! Without sleep we are dead in no time and without proper sleep we are walking zombies, however sprightly our behaviour! I wish every living person gets a minimum of 6 to 7 hrs of uninterrupted sleep. I'd call any person who does not get 6 hrs of clear sleep, abnormal. He or she is making mistakes unaware, messing up others or their own bodies, slowly but surely. Without proper sleep, a lot of errors of judgement, impulse, rage and what not are surely bound to occur. They are inevitable. Sleep is the most sacred function of the body. I hate to disturb folks when they are asleep. Even couples should respect that function and try not to destroy the sleep pattern in the name of intimacy or togetherness as a routine. (The occasional jaunt apart ;)

    This is what I try to tell germaphobes, that they are in a battle against themselves but that just simply adds to my pet peeves about how personal branding can dumb us down to the level of caricature, even though I do realize that you have a positive opinion generally about personal branding.

    We have created weaker immune systems and rising allergic reactions through obsessive (near OCD) attitude to cleanliness. In trying to eradicate bacteria through an arsenal of antibiotics we have made relatively harmless strains of bacteria into evolving and more dangerous strains.

    There was a time when I was young when if a child got chickenpox a mother of another child would expose their children to it if they thought that it passed an immunity to it, one that protects their child from the greater discomfort of shingles later in life. Yet today no mother would expose their child to chickenpox because chickenpox has mutated through the decades and today can have the potency to be lethal.

    It is surprising that someone who has become socially conscious through his partnership with his wife, has been relatively slow in becoming more attuned to the function of microbes and how they are essential to the very fabric of life and when we are aware of their role how this can lead to smarter health and a greater understanding of symbiosis. It is good that he is now biologically conscious about the essence of the microbiome because understanding this is on par with understanding the human genome, and this should not remain an undiscovered part of our being (or in the case of microbes, the being within our own being).

Worship rituals across the country involve shelling of many coconuts and the flesh is partaken by all, along with the water. You will be amazed at the number of edibles that are made with coconuts. The coconut waste like the shells are used to make creative artefacts, and the skin/fibre are recycled to make coir mattresses and various other household items.

    Coconut oil, besides being a tasteful antibacterial/anti-fungal/lubricant/skin conditioner/sun-screen/burn-healing lotion etc., is also supposed to be an excellent remedy for thyroid problems. Two teaspoons of coconut oil (food grade/extracted pure and with no additives) consumed every morning is supposed to regulate thyroid gland hormone production. It can be added to hot milk, tea or coffee and consumed, if you are not comfortable chugging it raw ;)

    All said, that was a real healthy buzz! Thanks for sharing!

    Interesting science around the second brain in our gut, which seems to indicate that processes of digestion and gut related reactions to emotional thoughts is delegated to this second brain. Interesting also is the finding of the level of serotonin hormone that relates to the gut.
    It seems the consciousness in our gut is not our own but the effects of millions of bacteria in our gut communicating with our enteric nervous system. Interesting also is the emerging field of neurogastroenterology as gut/brain science begins to be formulated.. If the foremost experts are still finding out about the human brain and its functioning, this ancillary study of the gut-brain relationship speaks to how much medicine has yet to learn. I am patient enough to see how this science progresses.

    A phenomenal piece of your classic scholarship, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, which always highlights that what we are being told, just might have an agenda.

    So much 'wisdom' is actually false and the reason it is passed along, despite being a PR myth, is that it can be encapsulated in a repeatable soundbite.

    Fat makes you fat. So much harm to our collective health has come from this pat, but false phrase, just because it is magnificently easy to pass along.

    "Just because I look good does not mean that I am good, so why would I master image when I can master reality first?"

    Our teeth are biologically active tissues that can be healed in ways beside throwing mercury and metal amalgam - I bet we evolve to consider this a torture device like a chastity belt.....

    I followed up on this buzz but through the physical intelligence lens that I am apply for my own learning journey here :
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    25/06/2017 #16 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    The physical aspect here is something I am totally with, but the image side, of course not. This idea that people should have "white teeth" is an abomination when at best healthy teeth are off-white not fake white. I care deeply about health but not social judgements - because I am not going to placate or uphold human resource values that belong in the dustbin of the 20th Century.

    Creating a prejudiced view of the human body perpetuates image disorder and creates markets based on bad science. Health should come before image and as the decades progress, an industry dedicated to make us believe how we should look according to a false representation of the human self, is a form of professionalism (as special interest) that should face deeper inspection as an attitude that represents thinking from the past - not a freedom for the future. Health however is freedom.

    This is a subject that is worthy of me writing a separate buzz but also worthy of including in physical intelligence - because the physical (rather than social or psychological) component of having healthy teeth is a worthy message and worth developing further. We should focus on science rather than religious belief that advocates people to be more concerned about image and cosmetic economics than in the basics of evidence based health. Personal branding is a religious movement not a science, where the chief deity is image and persona.

    To add to the cost of living in an age where there is increasing complexity is not something I am going to support but a renaissance society that gets past these dark ages of body image (whiter teeth) and moves us towards holistic health - that is a movement towards enlightenment and the kind of 21st Century life I do support. BTW would anyone advocate whiter skin???

    Smiles are the first impression when we meet one another. Oral hygiene is a priority in our personal and business lives. In the US, dentistry is expensive, even with dental insurance. My dentist advised I get an electric toothbrush, which I've had for 5 or 6 years. I would suggest a well known brand, such as Oral B and be sure to change the heads when they show signs of wear.

    #9 I concur @Cyndi wilkins - not just treatments but prescriptions. We have become a prescriptive society rather than a consultative one. This has turned doctors into prescribers and pharmaceutical companies target doctors to ensure they keep to Big Pharma's script. In that regard it is not ironic that doctors write out scripts and it is more likely today to imagine a beautiful blond sales woman walk into a male doctors office offering the doctor (prescriber) their own Pharma version of "Bad Medicine" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86gCYjwVB78

    "So we measure in studies a way of life that is sub-optimal living, but these studies don't prompt a transformation in how we operate as a society, and worse - we discover that the "experts' in exercise and nutrition studies offer cures and symptoms rather than prevention and root cause."

    @CityVP 🐝 Manjit ...I would suggest they offer 'treatments' rather than cures...'Cure' is a dirty word in modern medicine...Unfortunately, for far too long the general trend has been to comply with the norms of modern bio-medicine and diagnostic tools...completely dismissive of the complexities of the human emotional system as being in large part the underlying cause of disease...Instead it operates solely on an "evidence based" system of diagnostics, ignoring any intuitive sense they may have as irrelevant...
    This continuous cycle of treating the "symptoms" has created massive healthcare costs, making pharmaceutical companies rich by keeping people medicated and sick...If we consider the fact that our immune systems respond directly to our emotional state by manifesting physiological symptoms as a result of psychological stress, we begin to realize that if mindset can contribute to disease, surely then, it has the power to reverse it as well;-)

    #7 Absolutely and spot on your writing "In ageism we find the metabolic equivalent of knowledge and that meme which the young now believe is a millennial view, was actually put there by the same boomers who now are the victims of their own youth age obsession with youth culture".
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    19/06/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #3 Appreciate that. Ironically as digestion of new knowledge, many technological companies believe that young people are more open to new knowledge and that the metaphorical metabolism of older people slows down for innovation, but if that was true then why does the technology industry celebrate boomers who made the most fundamental contributions - people like Tim Berners-Lee and Vint Cerf who is even older? Why not call them yesterday's news and hold aloft some new 20 something?

    In ageism we find the metabolic equivalent of knowledge and that meme which the young now believe is a millennial view, was actually put there by the same boomers who now are the victims of their own youth age obsession with youth culture. In the narcissism of the 60's when boomers celebrated themselves, but now they have done unto themselves what they did to their own generation. It is payback time for their own beliefs - or at least those who still sniff and snort on this 20th Century mindset.

    The same theme flows into my contemplation of a GENERATION X2 https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/generation-x2 So whether it is concrete or abstract as an idea, it is worth reflecting upon, because otherwise we accept either an inherited orthodoxy or a mythology whose myth is in need of busting. For now before I get to the sociological layers under the physical - it is worth looking first directly at the physical.

    #1 I am focused here on actual physical and metabolic differences between me as a 16 year old and me as a 56 year old, though the example actually used alludes to 19, the end of our teenage years. The adult body needs far less of the food fuel type that a still growing and developing teenager does. I noticed that I continue to eat for the body of a growing teenager, when I should be more mindful about what a body of a middle aged person does - and I am not getting any younger in that regard. Whether physically outside or metabolically inside of me - unless I shift towards body-building as a goal, what my family prepare is guided by the needs of our many young adult members - and an adjustment for me is necessary - even if in the past I ate like a teenager for a teenage body - those times have now passed on, and it is time embrace age appropriate physical intelligence.

    #3 Yes I do like the idea of applying conservative risk. The irony today is that our family meal is a meaty barbecue. Whoever said that if you push an idea into the universe, it comes back to you may be onto something. The video above says that potato crisps are the second worst thing after processed meats - and here I was in the back garden with the family watching processed meat burgers on the barbeque and my family passing around a large plate of potato crisps. I find it quite ironic especially in the context of my buzz today. The synchronicity here is at least interesting for me to contemplate, if not ironic.

    #1 There is a category for classifying knowing, but acting differently - it is called risk taking, but I write this to underscore the nature of risk I have entertained here - and this morning I chose superficial risk. Risk is how human beings left the cave and created the urban and incredibly networked world we live in - but the lesson today in terms of physical intelligence is a self-reminder about appropriate risk. There is reckless risk which I don't engage in (like extreme sports) and then there is conservative risk, which is what most entrepreneurs actually engage - so the lesson of the sausage is also a lesson in reminding myself that our attitude to risk, then flows into other areas of our life where risk can be usefully applied.

I enjoyed reading "Even if I know what is being said has some home truth behind it, I remain edible irrational - in other words if it looks good enough to bite and swallow, I still do it". In the Cynefin framework we discuss the the known know, the known unknowns and the rest of them. Here you know and yous still eat the stuff. May be we need to add a new category to classify knowing, but acting differently.
