Philosopher Epictetus Thinks Being Clingy Is Not Worth It
Clinging to things out of our control only gives us pain, agony, and suffering but being content in controlling ourselves is the true mark of happiness. The outside world has no control over our happiness unless we allow the world to have it. This is what the famous Philosopher Epictetus believed.

Before following your gut instincts, do this...
We all heard the cliche sayings like "listen to your gut" or "I just have a gut feeling..." but do we actually understand what it means to listen to your gut? Because if I'm being honest, I never understood how to. The only thing my gut ever told me is that maybe if you didn't eat that pint of ice cream last night you wouldn't have to unbutton your pants every time you sit down. Well, now that there is a lot more research being done and readily available information on gut health and the community of bacteria living there, I took the opportunity to educate myself on just how much influence our gut health has on our body and thinking minds and it turns out, it plays a MAJOR role in just about every small to life-changing decision. Knowing this key piece of information should make you think twice before really listening to your gut, however.

Here’s Why You’ve Been Missing Out On Great Sleep: 6 Benefits Of A Hybrid Mattress
When it comes to sleep, I don’t mess around. My bedroom is my sanctuary and getting into bed after a long day is something I look forward to probably more than I should admit. But it wasn’t always like that. I spent so many years of my life being a “bad sleeper” and never really knowing why. I blamed my lack of good sleep on my night owl tendencies and my so-called insomnia. In my early 20s, I’d sometimes lie awake until 3 or 4 in the morning because my mind and my body could never sync up and allow me to get comfortable enough to sleep. I knew my lack of quality sleep wasn’t good for my health and I tried almost everything on the market to improve my sleep. From different supplements, sleep gummies, essential oils, weighted blankets, sleep masks and even white noise machines, I literally tried it all. Little did I know, I wasn’t addressing the root of the issue — my mattress.
A Love Letter to Meditation
Some love is instantaneous. That first glance across the room. That first interaction that brought sparks. This love lightning can find us with people, activities, places, food, songs. I definitely fell in love with chicken parm at first sight. And the process of making pasta by hand. And with a raspberry macaroon I had at a fancy bakery. Okay, so maybe I fall in love fast with good food and food creation. This I know about myself, and is a love I have continued to foster over the years.

Dune’s Boost Water Might Replace My Favorite Post Workout — Here’s Why
We’ve all heard it countless times in our lives: to live a long, happy, and healthy life, you should eat nutrient-dense foods, exercise often, and drink plenty of fluids. It sounds like a simple concept, but for many years (especially in my early twenties), I thought of working out and eating healthy as something totally unnecessary. I was so very wrong in this thinking, and boy, did I learn that the hard way.
100 WEIGHT LOSS TIPS- HELPFUL ADVICE TO GET YOU STARTED
INTRODUCTION There was also a time when the thought of losing weight didn't even occur in our society, people ate what mom cooked for dinner and they went to work. The difference in that society and today's society is that work was not behind a computer screen, but on their feet in the fields or on a warehouse floor. People worked physically because that was the only way to work, in fact, that's why it was called work! It was often during this time that people could eat anything they wanted because they were burning much more calories than what they consumed.

Because of their rapid evolution and wide distribution, ammonite fossils provide a useful tool for indexing and dating rocks. It is said that the original discus used by the ancient Greeks in their Olympics was in fact a fossilized ammonite. In India, ammonite fossils are identified with the god Vishnu and are used in various ceremonies. They are mostly collected in Nepal, from the bed of the River Gandaki where it cuts through Jurassic sediments. These fossils are known as “shaligram shila”. The word ammonite is derived from Ammon, an Egyptian god who took the form of a ram. Ammonites are similar in appearance to a ram’s horn.
