Sleep Tip from the Mentalist TV Show

I like watching the Mentalist TV show and yesterday I got finally around to watch my latest recorded show. To my delight and surprise Patrick Jane's character gave this tip to help you fall asleep:

If you have falling asleep you can count sheep or on your in-breath say or think 1 and then when you breath out say or think 2. On your next in-breath say or think 1 and when you breath out say or think 2. Keep on repeating this and you will be surprised that when you wake up it is morning.

Give it a try and then connect with me on Facebook and let me know what happened . . .

Found a Great Site: Practical Tips for Productive Living

Just recently I came across this treasure trove of a site. It is called Marc and Angel Hack Life - Practical tips for productive living. The put together lists of helpful information for a productive life.

Here are just a few of tips of the list: "101 Simple Truths We Often Forget"
  • 1.  The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing.  Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
  • 11.  Growth begins at the end of your comfort zone.  Stepping outside of your comfort zone will put things into perspective from an angle you can’t grasp now.
  • 20.  Having a plan, even a flawed one at first, is better than no plan at all.
  • 33. Being successful is a journey, not a destination.
  • 39.  Everyone you meet is better than you at something.  We all have different strengths.  What worked for someone else might not work for you.
  • 47.  Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
  • 57.  Screaming at people always makes things worse.
  • 65.  Family isn’t always blood.  They’re the people in your life who want you in theirs – the ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.
  • 82. Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go.
  • 99.  No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.
Now don't you just want to know what the other Truths are? Follow this link and check out the post.

What We Can Learn from a 108-Year Survivor of a Nazi Concentration Camp

Just came across this powerful 12 minute video about Alice Herz Summer a 108- year-old survivor of a Nazi Concentration Camp.  Her positive outlook is what helped her survive.

Alice Herz Summer Quotes from the Video

  • Complaining doesn't change things or people. 
  • Be grateful for everything in your life.
  • Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the bad and focus on the good. That's the way the life works. That is the essence of optimism.
  • Smile a lot.
  • Hatred eats the soul of the hater not the hated.
  • Everything is a present.

I once read this quote that totally agrees with what Alice says.

 "We live our lives looking forward,
but we make sense of our lives by looking backward."
