It must be taut and vibrating

"When our whole world shrinks down 

to just ourselves, the smallest problems 

or reversals of fortunes throw us. But 

when we widen the circle of our concern,

 we’re less concerned with the self — we’re less narcissistic, we have more perspective, 

we’re more empathetic, and more grateful. 

That has huge consequences — making us 

much more effective at dealing with stress, 

anxiety and even depression."


—Arianna Huffington

the sound of checkers

Sleep deprivation is linked to a variety of serious health problems, including heart attack, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. It stresses you out because your body overproduces the stress hormone cortisol when it's sleep deprived. While excess cortisol has a host of negative health effects that come from the havoc it wreaks on your immune system, it also makes you look older, because cortisol breaks down skin collagen, the protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic.

 "A mind is like a parachute.   

It doesn’t work if it is not open."
