Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

(Oh NO! I'm guilty of Numbers 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6. My excuse? They say, for our brain cells, it's also the survival of the fittest. Meaning, when you do these things, you kill the cells that are not halthy, and you are left with good and healthy cells only. Haha... Yeah, right!)

How do we change the world?

One Act of Random Kindness at a time.

- Evan Almighty

(Just finished watching the movie - credits still showing as I type this entry with God issuing a new Commandment: Thou shall do the dance!)

Wow! I can't believe I cried again. From this movie no less. Especially when God spoke to the wife after they left him to build the ark. One story that I learned, or relearned I should say, is that:

When you pray to God for patience, He wouldn't give you patience but rather He would give you the opportunity to be patient.

When you pray for courage, He will not give you courage but will give you the opportunity to be courageous.

Nice, right? I am currently rediscovering my Faith and this movie is very timely.

A very wonderful movie to watch on a lazy Saturday. 4.5/ 5

Think again.

Agatha Christie

I now know who Agatha Christie is. Shame on me. Am I the only one who doesn't know her?

Apparently, she is the "Queen of Crime" - not for the crimes she committed but for the crime novels, plays and short stories she wrote.

The Guiness Book of World Records, among others, calls her the best selling writer of books of all time, and one of the best selling writer of any kind (along with William Shakespeare!!!). She has sold more than four billion copies, and only the Bible has outsold her. (From Wikipedia)

Wow! Now I want to grab a copy of any of her books. Anyone kind enough to lend me one? Hehe

Quote 1

I was browsing my own site (since no one else does hehehe) and I found this interesting quote from Agatha Christie (I still don't know who she is) and I think this is worth sharing.

"I didn't want to work. It was as simple as that. I distrusted work, disliked it. I thought it was a very bad thing that the human race had unfortunately invented for itself."

I guess I have to agree, huh? How about you?

Joke Time: The State of Philippine Criminal Affairs

The NBI (National Bureau of Investigation), the AFP (Armed Forces of the Philippines), and the PNP (Philippine National Police) get into an argument over who is the best at apprehending criminals.

The President decides to test them. She releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it.

How many do you agree with? Leave a comment :)

A lousy blogger...

I admit, I am a lousy blogger.

Before, I didn't like blogging, in fact, I hated blogging.Only because I hate writing (or typing, as the case maybe), just the same way I hate texting! Just let me talk for hours, even the entire day, I'm game. Or let me read 24 hours straight, I'm game - just don't let me write.

I think it has something to do with my thoughts being too fast that my hands can't catch up. And it really frustrates me. I am also not a good typist. In fact, I am known for my typos when chatting (taht you cam read tihs is amazign).

So what am I doing here?

Oh well, I have always wanted to share my thoughts - in fact I enjoy doing it so much that's why I enjoy giving talks and seminars here and there and everywhere.

Again, I wish to emphasize, I am here to share so if I have typo errors, grammatical errors, or whatever error that may be, I hope you can forgive me. I am a lousy blogger and writer for one reason: I don't like re-reading and reviewing what I have written, so there will be errors along the way.

But then again, I'm here to share so I hope you can forgive those errors.
