Big Payoffs for Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness meditation improves mood and emotions by lowering negative thoughts and reducing anxiety and stress. It ensures a healthy life by enabling a healthy mind to run a healthier body. Here are some ways in which mindfulness or meditation helps in boosting one's health.
1) Balancing emotions- Meditation can help in boosting one's spirit and invite positivity, helping one to cope and allows any negative thought processes to release. It, in turn, reduces anxiety, stress, depression, and other harmful products of the mind.
2) Increasing grey matter- According to the examinations done by Britta Hölzel of Harvard Medical School, mindfulness meditation helps in increasing the grey matter of the people. It increases the efficiency of learning and retaining memory in the hippocampus of the brain.
3) Killing the silent killer- Meditation has proven to help increase one's learning capabilities. And, there is no doubt that it reduces and eliminates stress, the silent killer. Mindfulness meditation maintains the equilibrium of the body and mind, which thus helps in dealing with stress.
4) Staying healthy- People practicing meditation regularly, have a healthy outlook in life. It helps them to enjoy their lives and reach their full potential by being productive. All these are positive thoughts built up using meditation.
5) Resistance to diseases- As per a Harvard Medical School study, people who indulge in meditation for an extended period have an increased number of active genes. These active genes act as a resistance force or barrier to various diseases and disorders.
6) Meditation for Hepatitis C for Liver- According to medical studies, stress can lead to liver inflammation. Doctors believe that the people and children who meditate regularly are less prone to liver diseases and Hepatitis C. Due to stress, the killer cells multiply in the liver, which increases the anxiety levels in children and adults.
7) Healthy heart- People with less stress and anxiety levels have healthier hearts than others. And these people are the ones who indulge in practicing meditation religiously.
8) Slow Aging- People with less stress, anxiety, tension tend to live longer than those who succumb to a lot of pressure. Telomeres are proteins responsible for protection against aging. This protein can get a boost through mindfulness meditation.
9) Psychological Pain- According to Jon-Kabat Zinn of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, points out that meditation helps to cope with pain, anxiety, depression, and stress, which accompanies illness. He found that people who meditated every single day were less prone to suffering from chronic diseases.
10) Improve Attention- Meditation increases the concentration power of a person's brain. It has come to the attention of doctors that by meditating for just four days a week, one can enhance and sustain one's attention level.
11) Boosting immunity- According to several studies, that meditation has increased the level of T-cell activity in the person's body suffering from HIV or breast cancer. A study later proved that mindfulness meditation not only increases the strength of immunity in the body but also gives it a boost to fight even cancer and HIV.
12) Better Sleep- For stabilizing one's sleep, meditation is essential to provide rest to both body and mind.
13) Progress in weight loss- Meditation can help in focusing on a goal that a person wants to achieve. Meditation helps in coping with stress eating, which has been studied in the obese.
14) Eliminating loneliness- Meditation is known for reducing stress and other harmful elements of the mind. It provides a boost to the person's brain towards positivity and thus helps him/her in getting out of loneliness.

Yes, Eating Veggies Actually Improves Mood
Did you know that eating more vegetables can make you happier? Yes, really. Increasing your intake of greens each day can actually make an impact on your mental health, and by eating just two and a half servings daily, you may notice a significant change in your overall happiness. It's no secret that the food you eat can play into your mood and general comfort in your body, and functional medicine expert Amy Sapola, PharmD, director of Farmacy at The Chef's Garden in Huron, Ohio, took to the mindbodygreen podcast earlier this week to explain why.
Listening to how your body feels after eating certain foods is essential to determining the best nutritional pattern for your physical and mental health, but here's a hint: a cornerstone of this should be vegetables. Referencing a randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Sapola described 75 adults in North Dakota who weren't hitting their recommended veggie intake. "In this study, they had their control group, which kept eating very few vegetables, and then their intervention group, which was given vegetables from different groups."
The intervention group ate two and a half servings of veggies (plus legumes, avocados, and other nutrient-dense plants) per day. At the end of eight weeks, these participants scored higher on a happiness scale compared to both their initial rating and the control group. "It's a small study, but it speaks to the gut-brain connection and the power of simply making very small changes," Sapola says. "These people weren't eating 10 or 20 cups of vegetables a day. It was just two and a half cups."
One interesting point of note in this study is that two and a half cups is still not an exceptionally large amount of vegetables, especially in relation to what leading health care experts recommend. "When you look at some of the therapeutic interventions with vegetables and people like [physician] Terry Wahls, M.D., she recommends 12 to 15 cups of vegetables a day. So two and a half is still on the very low side," adds Sapola. "The Mediterranean [diet] plan usually has around four cups of vegetables a day." Moral of the story? Even small dietary changes can make a major impact on your well-being.

Plogging for Health and Environment
If you haven't tried plogging yet, it's about time you hop on this fitness trend that's great for the environment. The incredibly popular activity of jogging while picking up trash along your route is something individuals are having fun with across the globe—and for good reason. There's so much healthy goodness your body gains from plogging, and science proves it. Ready, set, let's learn the wholesome plogging habits that slow aging!
Started by Erik Ahlström in Sweden, "plocka upp" (which means plogging in Swedish) can be life-changing. Not only is the endeavor extraordinary for your overall mental and physical fitness, but it's also quite infectious and benefits the environment in a seriously major way. You may even be inspired to initiate a plogging event in your own community and help spread this positive effort to friends and neighbors. As you help clean up your world, take a look at the many plogging habits that slow aging.
Your heart will beat with pride as a result of your plogging efforts, and a happy heart is a healthy one. Performing service to your community in a special way is plain old nourishing. Studies have proven that the more selfless deeds you perform, the more happiness you experience—and it will help you live longer.
Research performed at Carnegie Mellon University reveals that individuals 51 years of age and over who consistently volunteered their time were at lower risk of developing high blood pressure than adults who did not. High blood pressure is a major cause of stroke, heart disease, and early mortality. Individuals who volunteered a minimum of 200 hours each year lowered their high blood pressure by as much as 40%. The research indicates that performing this kind of volunteer work could be an effective method to help you avoid hypertension.
Your surroundings are integral to your mood and overall health. Not only is the air you breathe and the food you eat negatively compromised by pollutants, but a community that has litter scattered about can also encourage other residents and people traveling to that particular place to be litterers, too.
Doing your bit to keep your environment clean not only inspires others to keep it that way, but also helps generate a world that is clean to live, eat, and breathe in. This is a huge golden reason why plogging makes so much sense. Think of inspiring a huge number of ploggers to get an abundance of exercise while cleaning up the earth. The activity may motivate people to be mindful of not littering in the first place!
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: When you go out onyour plogging run, make sure to wear the Schumann Resonance Crystal. It will connect your more deeply to the Earth and make plogging even more effective

Health & Healing Hack of the Week
The imagination is your interface with the physical world. We have been taught that when something is in the imagination, it's not "real". We have constant evidence that this must be "true", because when we imagine something, it just seems to only be in the imagination, not in the "outside world". The news flash here is that when you imagine anything, the quantum particles of which you and your world are made, begin to change and re-form in response to the imagining. The truth of the matter is that once it is imagined, it is already on its way to you. Sure, you may need to respond with physical action as a "player" in the physical actualization of what was imagined, but essentially, it is a matter of simply observing the manifestation. I go into this explanation, because we need to acknowledge how powerful the imagination is, especially when it comes to healing the body, or any facet of our lives--past, present or future. One of the most basic tools is LIGHT. Light IS consciousness, so when you create light for healing purposes, this light is a powerful agent for doing so. In the ancient arts of Taoism, there are many "light meditations" to use in any number of ways. I recommend reading the works of Mantak Chia, a Taoist and QiGong master. One of the most basic uses of light, is to simply send it to whatever needs healing in the body, whether it be a slight discomfort or an unwanted chronic condition. The body responds to light with its own healing powers, which are considerable (see intro). Imagine the light infusing and becoming the part of the body needing it. You'll find that by consistently using this method, healing will speed up, and the condition addressed will not "get worse" or have "complications". The light can be various colors, shapes, motions and intensities. The key is to KNOW this light is performing a valuable service to the body. -- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)

NEW! Water Alive!
Many different research studies have demonstrated that magnetically treated water altered its physical properties and that this was due to "changed dimensions of water clusters" that led to an increase in conductivity, pH, dielectric constant and in vaporization enthalpy, but a decrease in density and surface tension. According to Dr. G. Pollack, structured water is the 4th phase of water beyond liquid, solid and vapor. This kind of structured water is naturally formed and can be found in mountain springs, glacier melts, water falls or water from unpolluted sources. It is also found inside the cells of fruits and vegetables. It has less viscosity and surface tension resulting in better penetration of cell walls and causing enhancement of hydration and bio-availability. Vital Force Technology has collected energy patterns of the world's best waterfalls and created a new formula called Water Alive. MORE INFO
