The power of positivity

I am amazed at how contagious positive emotion/positive energy is. How ones entire mental and physical state can be changed simply by the act of somebody greeting them in a positive manner. A mere kind word or two can make someones day. I see it all the time.

Recently I saw a very big example of it that you may find interesting. In a movie that came out not too long ago called “The Lego Movie,” the theme song to it was “Everything is Awesome.” The song itself was very blah. It was only intended to be a kids movie catchy tune. Certainly nothing that was remembrance worthy. And truthfully after a couple of minutes, its repetition got real annoying. But instead of fizzing out, the song blew up. It became so big that they had a long elaborate performance of it at the 2015 Oscars. “Why?” I kept asking myself. But the answer is simple: “Everything is Awesome” is an extremely positive statement, and people are just eating it right up. Just saying it makes you want to smile.

Come to think of it, I can’t think of a more positive statement. For the longest time I was going on the belief  that the most positive statement was: “Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes” (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure), but “Everything is Awesome” is one that more people will get behind.

We all have the power of creating and spreading our positive energy, and it should not be underestimated. A kind word can save a person’s life; seriously. People want your positive energy, and they want to give it back to you. Help people if they need help, compliment people if they look down. Smile even if you have no reason to. Smile long enough and that positive energy will infect everyone around you and they will respond positively back to you, and then you will have a reason to smile.

Just GO!

Go fast, go slow, go at a crawl pace if that is all you can do, but GO!

“Go” and proper diet are the answer to the overwhelming majority of health problems these days.

There are many many ways that one can GO. One can GO biking, running, mountain climbing, kayaking, boating, hiking, dancing, even walking. Whatever you can manage to do that gets your heart racing, and body sweating is what you gotta do.

Can’t move your legs? Move your arms.

Don’t have the time? Oh I see, you have bigger priorities than your health, like making sure you catch Game of Thrones. Perhaps American Idol, or America’s Got Talent. What could possibly higher priority than your health and wellness? (rhetorical, there is no greater priority).

Right now you should be concerned about how to incorporate a regular regimen of “GO” in your life. Make it priority. This combined with a reasonable diet will neigh eliminate all of these ailments: heart disease, obesity, cancer, allergies, and just disease in general.

I can not prove this. I do not have a PHD in Health and Wellness. But proof is not necessary, and neither is a PHD. I cannot ignore the fact that everyone that has a regular regimen of “GO” in their life have significantly fewer ailments, and neither should you. look around. The active are thriving, and the lazy are dying. People continue to pretend they do not notice. People continue to act as if their ailments were due to circumstances beyond their control. Yet I look at the lifestyle they lead, and I look at the active lifestyles of those in similar situations as they, and I see them thriving. The petty excuses of “It’s genetic”, “it was an accident”, or “It just happened. Just a random occurrence” don’t really hold much weight against the results one will see just by looking around at people’s lifestyles and the results of those lifestyles. One need not have a PHD, one merely needs some common sense.

I urge everyone to take responsibility of their health and wellness, and live a “GO” lifestyle. The only alternative is illness and disease.

Handling Stress / Problem Coping

YouAreSmallWhat are your problems really? Have you really taken a step back and examined your life from a more comprehensive POV where you can see more clearly what your priorities are? Or are you too busy being involved (consumed actually) in the problems you have right now? Here are some tips I live by to handle stress, problem solving, and just life in general:


  • Don’t sweat the small stuff.
  • “Control” for the most part, is an illusion. The only thing a person can actually have any control over is their own thoughts and actions. One can’t control the things around them, and certainly not the people around them. In my experience, it is the people who try so hard to control everything around them that end up being the ones that end up losing control of their own thoughts and actions. In their struggle to control everything, they end up losing them self. So in the end, one cannot control the situation, one can only control how they interpret and react to the situation.
  • If a problem is hurting any of ones values, discard it. Simple solution. Often the solution to a problem is simply to get rid of it.
  • Always look at the big picture. Is the problem worth the time, and mental energy being devoted to it? Remember that you are just one person living in a big community, big country, big world, big galaxy, big universe and in the grand scheme of things your problems are not worth squat. It may not be worth spending even two minutes of an already short life worrying about trifles.YouAreSmall
  • In my experience there is no such thing as the “wrong” thing to do and the “right” thing to do. There is only: “What can I live with?”. Don’t get caught up in what others perceive as the wrong thing to do, and the right thing to do. Choose the solution that permits you to be able to live with yourself.
