Meditation and Mindfulness Can Literally Turn You Into a New Person

Long the province of, shall we say, “fringe” types, mindful meditation is now a well-regarded, mainstream practice that’s just as likely to attract buttoned-up business types as long-haired wannabe yogis. Studies show that people who regularly practice mindfulness enjoy several meditation benefits: healthier, more balanced lives, less stress, better performance on reasoning tests.

But that may only be the tip of the iceberg. What if mindful meditation could literally change the structure of your cells — or at least the genetic code that governs their activities? A new study suggests that this may be the case.

Longer Telomeres?
According to a just-released study published in Scientific American, mindful meditation may produce changes in telomeres, which are the “endcap” segments that adorn each of our chromosomes. Specifically, they slow telomeres’ shortening, a natural process that occurs over years or decades and has been linked to health problems like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Overall, longer telomeres are associated with longer lifespans. The study unambiguously showed that breast cancer survivors who practiced mindfulness had longer telomeres than peer groups who received other forms of counseling.

Other Genetic Benefits
Meanwhile, a 2013 study from the University of Wisconsin found even that mindfulness had even farther-reaching genetic benefits. Individuals who practiced intense mindfulness over the course of several hours were found to have lower levels of inflammation-inducing genes and higher levels of the gene-regulating “machinery” (proteins) responsible for limiting the negative effects of inflammation. This resulted in lower levels of damaging inflammation in mindful participants’ bodies, reducing long-term risks for related conditions like heart disease and some forms of cancer.

Mental and Emotional Benefits of Meditation
Of course, mindful meditation has a range of mental and emotional benefits as well. People who regularly practice mindfulness forge new neural connections at higher rates than their non-meditating peers, promoting problem-solving and reducing the incidence of emotional problems. Simply put, mindful meditation is a holistic approach to healthier, happier, smarter living.

More to Come
Can mindful meditation really change your body? The jury will be out until more studies have been completed, but the science looks promising so far. And given all the well-documented meditation benefits that we’re already sure about, it seems silly not to give it a try and see for yourself. What do you have to lose?

At long last, my RN license was finally issued by the New Jersey Board of Nursing, it seemed like I waited forever for it. But I still thank God for however difficult and long the process might have been, in the end it's all gonna be worth it.

Now the other half of the challenge would be finding a job and practicing nursing for the first time here in the United States. Even though I've been an RN in the Philippines for almost 8 years, and even though Nursing is Universal, there are still differences which I have to overcome and adapt to.

I'm so excited to finally start my nursing career here, I just hope it's going to be soon! Have a nice day guys and happy blogging...

Need better balance in body, mind and spirit? Try Ayurvedic cooking

Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems for promoting health and well-being on the planet. Most closely associated with Indian food, Ayurvedic methods are easily adaptable to any cuisine. While the overall philosophy is both intricate and elegant, the dietary principles can be broken down into several very simple concepts.

Those who follow the first and most basic guideline of an Ayurvedic way of eating now have a trendy name: Locavore. Ayurveda has, for centuries, been based upon the idea that all of the foods you eat should be natural, containing no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and that a healthy, balanced diet is made up of local foods purchased and prepared only when they are in season in your area. Eating natural foods from the area in which you live and work is believed to bring you into harmony with your environment. Because Ayurveda is a holistic discipline, meaning that it is designed to enhance every aspect of your life, this environmental balance is important.

Second, becoming familiar with the six tastes of Ayurveda—sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent—is essential to helping you understand and master the basics of planning and preparing meals according to Ayurvedic principles. These flavors are generally listed in the order in which Ayurveda tells us they are digested, so plan your meals accordingly. Start a meal with something light and sweet, such as a fruit salad drizzled with honey. Or combine sweet and sour with fruit and yogurt or hard cheese and lemon chutney. Use the pungency of chili peppers or ginger to balance and bring out the bitter flavor of leafy greens seasoned with the astringent kick of pomegranate. Eating the six flavors in the order in which they are most effectively digested helps promote gastric health and curb cravings to contribute to an overall sense of well-being.

Cooking methods are the third key to the Ayurvedic approach. Science tells us that cooking tomatoes releases the lycopene that your body cannot extract efficiently when they are eaten raw—a truth known to Ayurveda for 5,000 years. This is also why carrots are most often served raw, because cooking destroys their beta carotene.
Spices are the fourth building block in constructing healthy, balanced and delicious Ayurvedic meals. Turmeric, ginger, cumin and coriander are the bases of most Ayurvedic recipes. Turmeric is believed to aid digestion, as is ginger. Tamarind, honey, lemon and spicy chilies also bring flavor to Ayurvedic meals. A mixture of caraway seeds and fennel seeds is often put out in dishes to sweeten and freshen the breath after dining.

While a belief in vegetarianism is at the heart of the Ayurvedic way of eating, if you are not willing to give up meats, poultry and fish, you can apply the Ayurvedic way of thinking to how you incorporate them into your daily menus. Choose organic products made from animals that have been gently and freely raised and humanely dispatched. Use meats as flavoring rather than as the main part of each dish, and be especially sure to balance all six flavors in meals containing meat.

First time on ICE...

I was good at roller skating way back in high school, but there's a really big difference being on ice for the first time. Aside from feeling like your toes are frozen, it's very slippery I could almost feel my butt on the icy ground as soon as I let go of the railings. My butt did meet the chilly ground two times LOL, but it was such an exciting and exhilarating experience, especially if you're homebound for weeks with nothing to do but wait for your RN license to finally be issued.
A lot of thanks to my good friend, Joy Barrete (who never let go of the railings for more than a second hahaha), for making this experience a very unforgettable one. Next time, we'll skate like a PRO!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Madeline!

Kids grow up in a blink of an eye nowadays! One moment they're in your arms, the next they're climbing up whatever it is they can climb on! But I'm not complaining, coz they might grow up fast but we raised them as great kids. Kids who have deep family values which would guide them to become better individuals in the future.
Keep safe and healthy Madeline, Tita Bing is always right here for you! We love you so much!

Fingerprinting done, finally!

All I needed to have my RN license here in New Jersey is to be fingerprinted by Identogo to complete the Criminal History Background check. But that wasn't an easy task. Because of the USCIS error in my name, I couldn't get one decent and valid identification issued by a U.S. federal, state, or county to present to any Identogo facility.
But we went to DMV anyway and get an I.D. with my wrong name, and presented it to the Identogo clerk. I was so nervous she'd turn me away, but all she did was scan the barcode at the back of my DMV I.D. and fingerprinted me. My fingers were cold and shaking (didn't know if she noticed it), I'm afraid she'd stop anytime and tell me "Oh, your name in your ID doesn't match the one written in the Universal Fingerprinting Form". Fortunately, the whole ordeal went quickly, and I expelled the breath I was holding on as soon as I got out of the facility.
I just hope the FBI or the NJ State Police will look into USCIS system and find out it was just a mere typographical error. Until then, I'll just keep on praying that everything will finally fall in its right place.

USCIS Biometrics

Just finished my biometrics at USCIS Application Support Center, Philadelphia today. It was real quick, less than 10 minutes and we're on our way back home to New Jersey. I just hope that they will also process my replacement green card just as quick (fingers crossed). I heard that the wait time from biometrics to receiving the new green card is around 2 to 3 months.
Just so frustrating that they made an error in your card, but you will be the one to suffer the consequences of their incompetence. So damn waste of precious time.

Happy 2nd Birthday, my baby Judd!

2 years ago God has gifted me the reason to believe again that happiness isn't just a word or a state of emotion. It's a place where hearts meet and be bound forever with the love that could last a lifetime, and even way after forever.
Happy 2nd birthday my baby Judd Grey! Though distance may have separated us physically, our hearts will always be in that happy place waiting patiently until we can be together again.
I love and miss you so much baby!!!

Welcome 2015!

This blog needs some CPR, and since it's the New Year I think now is the best time to do just that.

May 2015 brings us prosperity and success in whatever endeavors we have. Let us list down all the New Year's resolutions we've been dying to do and give our very best to make them into reality. Plans and ideas are great, but making it an action verb is far greater.

Let us welcome 2015 by being pro-active and productive. God bless us all! Happy blogging and Happy New Year...

Congratulations Ate Jam!!! You made it. This is not the end though. Instead, this marks the beginning of a new adventure. A future full of promise, but be ready to face challenges and obstacles along the way. Enjoy the journey.

The Abreeza Experience

@children's playground
Yesterday we went to the new Robinson's Mall called Abreeza, and I felt "Dubai Sick". The mall was patterned like the ones in Dubai, down to the parking lots, restaurants, cinemas, and designer stores. I never thought I'd miss Dubai this much, the places I went and the people I've known and came to love. Anyway we had such fabulous time, though it's kinda tiring because the mall is so huge. It's just so sad that almost everything is a whole lot more expensive! We dined at Hukad, and the food was superb! They serve old fashion Filipino cuisine, with unlimited rice (this is the best part LOL). Later we watched "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and we all loved it, it was so funny and so filled with adventure and action.

pwedeng pang billboard? hehehe

We didn't go home last night. Instead, we spent the night with my good friend Agirl coz she's home alone. Jam and arena were so hyperactive, they just love it when their boring routine get some flavor.

Well we're home now, thank God we're safe. Gotta get some sleep though, I'm on PM shift today. Have a great day guys!

Thirty & One

Thirty one tsk tsk tk... and the fine lines are becoming more prominent, I really need to start using anti-aging products :-). But each year in my life have molded me to become who I am right now, so I feel no regrets whatsoever. I thank God endlessly for blessing me with such wonderful family and friends, for without them life won't be as exciting and meaningful.

I wish myself good health, safety, and the opportunity to be a blessing to my family and to other people. I also wish for a safe world, both from terrorism and natural catastrophe, for our children's future.

Happy blogging...

Quite some time...

For so long I wasn't able to visit my own blog, much less write an entry. More than a year is quite long to be quiet, so I decided to be proactive again. This blog of mine is a personal diary, something I can look back and review some salient events that happened in my life. I made the wrong decision when I stopped updating it, and now I'm going to correct that mistake.

To summarize what happened in almost two years... I wasn't able to go back to Dubai, as originally planned, because of familial and financial reasons. I won't pout about it any longer, I've moved on. I still work as a pediatric nurse in a local hospital here in Davao, and is quite happy and contented, at the moment. I guess you'll just have to make the most out of life, whichever way the wind takes you. Anyway I'm with my family, and loving every moment of it, so I didn't really feel like so much have been lost to me. They haven't given me a chance to feel that way ;-P

Now I'm back to blogging and business. I just hope my blogger friends still recognize me. See you around friends, and have a great day!

Rainy Days

Got nothing to do, and the rain was pouring hard outside. So I went out, just to feel and smell the soothing scent of the rain. Then I noticed this fly, soaking wet, and probably enjoying every drop just as I do.

I really thank God for the ra
in, coz after the long heat, it's very relaxing to bask in its freshness. And of course I'm very grateful for the gift of water, even though it's very muddy outside.

This is a very lovely picture of the flower, minus the fly LOL...

You Gotta See This

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.

Some people would say that if you have a clear vision, you have a clear future ahead of you. Somehow I believe it is true. When I was still using eyeglasses, the advent of contact lenses felt so liberating. But as we get busier and busier nowadays, maintaining proper usage of contact lenses become quite a nuisance.

But as the popularity of iLASIK technology surge in the market, everybody seemed to be talking about it. May it be on the internet, radio, magazines, TV commercials, everywhere. They even produced this must seen iLASIK Video Contest which aims to spread the word about the wonders of iLASIK technology. The mechanics of this particular contest include submitting a video in one of the following categories:

• “My contacts are getting in the way of my good time”
• “My favorite sport or activity would be so much cooler with better vision”
• “You should see life after the iLASIK® Procedure”

Then ask all your friends to check out your video and vote for it. All of your efforts will be rewarded with exciting prizes including the grand prize of $5,000! You can submit your videos, view and vote on all entries at

So hurry and don't miss this rare opportunity to get the best vision and a brighter future.

New Moon

After two years of going on our separate ways, trying to reach for our dreams in our own little ways, Myself, Liza, Xenia, and Gemma "most popularly known as Madam" finally got together to watch the sequel of the sensational hit movie "Twilight". The movie "New Moon" served as a means for us to reconnect with one another. For us to remember the great friendship we had and always have. To reminisce the fun and laughter amidst our struggles and trials as nursing students.

New Moon is a great movie, and as for me it's much better than Twilight, although the three of them all disgreed LOL. That's how I saw it anyway. The most important part is that we've enjoyed the moment and proved that distance and time just can't take away a friendship with very tough foundation.

The Queen Of Torrents

I remembered clearly my first encounter of bit torrents. I was in dire need to download a Charmed episode, and it was not available in You Tube. So I researched the whole world wide web for any possibilities, just to watch the said episode. And that's when the whole new world of bit torrent opened up to me. It's very useful and very convenient to use. Rather than watch clips or movies in You Tube, watch in clear and precise definition in your PC or DVD.

Quickly download software and you are on your way in exploring and enjoying the world right in the comfort of your own couch. Queen Torrent offer a wide range of free torrents you'll surely love to download. You will never miss an episode of your favorite series, no need to go to the movies to watch the latest films, or you'll never have to buy expensive applications or softwares. The world is in the tips of your fingertips.

A Whole New World

I've been working here for a month now, and I realized that I never shared it to you guyz. So here's a glimpse of my new world...for three months at least.

atik-atik og charting hehehe

I specifically requested to be assigned at the Pediatric Ward. When I was still in nursing school, I never really liked Paeds coz it's so depressing to see kids being sick. But eversince I worked in this area in Dubai, I've come to love it. Eventhough it's so sad to see ill children, thinking that I could be an instrument for their healing process gives me a feeling of contentment and self-worth.

I hope I'll get through with my training, working as a nurse here is a really tough job, and it takes a lot of courage, strength, patience, and sincere passion to care for the sick to survive.

Pamper Your Baby

Adequate sleep is very important for your baby's growth. Did you know that while you are sleeping, your cells are undergoing repair and regeneration? Thus a a goodnight sleep means healthier cells and glowing body. I used to wake up in the middle of the night coz Jam's diaper was full and she’s leaking and wetting all over. She's crying and wailing, and she won’t stop. Her cries just keep getting louder and louder each time I ignore it. So I had no choice but to get up and change her, as sleepy and drowsy as I was. I should have used a better and more absorbent brand like Pampers.

The world wide web is a very convenient way to buy baby diapers in bulk. And you will find all these at a shop named Sam's Club. There you'll have the chance to choose among the best brands of diapers and training pants, at incredibly affordable prices. So what are you waiting for? Purchase online now and give your babies the peaceful and comfortable sleep that they deserve, all night long.

Remember that sleep therapy is always good for your kids' growth and development. And of course you will also get those peaceful nights you've always wanted . Save time and money, and never run out of diapers to use for your precious little ones.

Home Safe Home

It was raining so hard, so I was just playing all by myself in our home. But each and every drop was inviting me to come out and play and enjoy the freshness of the rain. Oh I just love the smell and sound of the rain, it is so relaxing and intoxicating. So I slowly headed for the door, nobody’s watching anyway, slowly and slowly and slowly…BLAG! At last I was out in the rain! Face down into the dirty mud, I forgot I was just about a year and a half, can’t walk straight much less use the ladder. If we only have a baby gate like this back then...

Accidents do happen in our homes, where we think we are most safe. It’s not all the time that we have our eyes on our precious little ones. And kids as they are, they would always want to explore the world around them. Let them be, but we must know how to child-proof our homes.

It's a good thing that I didn't break any major bones that time, but we won't always be lucky. So don't take the risk especially when it comes to the safety of your kids. Their well-being must always come first. Install baby safety products in your home, for your peace of mind.

Hey guys, I've been real busy lately. All my time and energy is always spent in my hospital training, it's really exhausting. To all my blogger friends out there, sorry if I've been neglecting to visit your blogs, it's never intentional.

I'm just adjusting to my new routine, and believe me, working in a hospital here in the Philippines is no joke. You've got to have a lot of patience and diligence to survive. I'll try my very best to come back to circulation once I get a reign on my schedule. See you around...

This is just your lucky day girl! Now as you turn 13, may you be the best that you can be. I know there’s more to you than you ever show to everyone. It might seem like I don’t believe in your talents, but there’s one secret I must tell you, I’m your greatest fan and I do believe in you!

There is no place like home, indeed. It feels so great to be in your own place surrounded with the persons you love. Though I feel so relieved to be where I am right now, there is a part of me I left in Dubai -- my friends and of course my Shushu.

I keep telling myself it’s only 3 months, and then I’ll see him again. That way I won’t miss him so much, and I can endure the days without him. This is one of life’s trials, if we’re meant to be together, then we will get through this.

For now, I am enjoying the company of my family, most especially of my one and only baby Jamjam. We are relishing each and every moment, to make up for the time we’ve lost in the past. I just love her more and more each day, and I can’t seem to stop myself. I’m addicted…and I don’t wanna be saved.

I can't believe how much you've grown, time really fly so fast. And it means that I'm getting old too LOL. I'm so glad and proud because you've grown to become a very witty (though naughty at times) and nice li'l girl.
I love you so much Arena, and I will always be there for you...

Family Issues

Gemini (May 20 - Jun 20)
With your ruler Mercury still retrograde, certain tricky family issues that have been a persistent concern will still result in confusion. This will give everybody a good reason to ask serious questions, but the solution will be worth it.

***So true. It seems that my family has a lot of issues about me having a Muslim boyfriend, than they are showing it. Really they are so unfair. They haven't even given him a chance, they just crossed him out of the list because of his religion, which is not his fault. Could this get any worse?

Aries (Mar 20 - Apr 18)
Frustrating as the current delays are, they're preventing you from going in a direction you'd later regret. Invest in exploring all options now and it will help when early October's Aries Full Moon demands swift decisions.

Taurus (Apr 19 - May 19)
Your irritation with sudden developments could easily overshadow other far more rewarding events. So deal swiftly with those problematic situations, then focus on developments that involve who and what you enjoy most in life.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)
Recent discussions highlighted unspoken problems. Initially, you were concerned these would only cause more upset. But now you're fascinated by the enlightening and unexpected facts that come to light.

Leo (Jul 22 - Aug 21)
Obviously situations which involve seemingly unnecessary details or other people's pettiness are tedious. However what emerges explains others' persistently odd behaviour and, better still, reveals clever ways to deal with them.

Virgo (Aug 22 - Sep 21)
Because today's Virgo New Moon offers profound insights, pausing to examine your passions and objectives in this situation of chaos isn't just worthwhile, what you learn could substantially alter your priorities.

Libra (Sep 22 - Oct 22)
You, and those closest at work or at home, are struggling with often unfair dilemmas. Gentle probing leads to revealing and hugely productive discussions about issues that, previously, you've studiously ignored.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 20)
You thought that by avoiding open conflicts, you'd also waste less time debating everybody's version of the rights and wrongs of these situations. Now everybody is airing his/her views anyway and this is clearing the air.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 - Dec 20)
If others are not open to new ideas, let them work on whatever concerns them. For yourself you must try to stay focused on learning more about new opportunities and how intriguing concepts could benefit you.

Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
However in depth your exploration of recent perplexing developments may be, you'll still have only part of the picture. The shift in arrangements, the attitude of others and your own perspective will inevitably take time.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Obviously, everybody's interested in how you intend to deal with rather peculiar circumstances you're facing. Be enigmatic. You need time to think and, more importantly, to learn more about where changes are headed.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 19)
Acknowledge that there is no single, universally acceptable way to deal with the changes sweeping through your life. This frees you to allow each day's events to unfold without trying to figure out where they're going.

I have been longing to buy a nice digital camera for Jamjam. I can’t help but notice that she has an eye for photography and arts. Everywhere we go, she will take pictures however simple it is.

Mixed Emotions

I really don't understand what I'm feeling right now. It's like everything is happening too fast and I could not get a reign on it. Things are spinning out of control. I am very excited because I'll be with my family for 3 months. But at the same time, scared of what major effects this huge decision will have in my life.

I just hope I made the right move, and I pray endlessly that everything will be just right. Thy will be done...

Gifts For All Season

Gift giving is natural to man, we are after all an inborn pleaser. We love to make people happy, especially the ones who are dear to us. And giving them gifts for whatever occasion is a very common practice all over the world. They say it's the thought that counts, I believe that. But it will be more than OK if the recipient actually likes the gift, right? So you have to be more creative and add a personal touch to it.

There is a particular gift for every occasion, and it surely depends on who you will give the present to. And when you're too busy to think of perfect gifts, most of the time you need the help of the experts. This perfect gift ideas will definitely help you decide what to give to who.

And since Christmas is already in the air, avoid the rush and be ahead of the others. There are plenty of unique and exciting Christmas presents in store for you. But wait, I almost forgot that Halloween comes right before Christmas, so go on give the kids their trick-or-treating gifts, to make their experience more enjoyable.

Just Stand Up

This song keeps playing on my mind over and over again. Maybe it's one of God's ways to enlighten me and to tell me never to give up. I love this song, from Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and a lot more popular pop divas.

Read between the lyrics, it's very inspiring. And I'd like to dedicate this song to my good friend Belle, this song is for us bro! Just hold on...

Public Opinion Matters

The internet is such a huge place it could swallow you whole without you even knowing it. You could get lost in its vastness if you are not smart enough to know your way around it. As your world wide web journey continues, you will definitely encounter the bad guys (most frequently those heartless and most hated scammers) who will stop at nothing to squeeze your hard-earned money out from your online pockets. But as we live on a well-balanced world, the good guys do exist, sites that are offering free website reviews which will provide you the guidelines, the do's and don'ts of internet life, and how to survive and be successful in your daily internet transactions and interactions.

We have every reason not to trust anyone or any website in the internet. So what better way to verify their legitimacy than to check what the public has to say about them? really put all the pieces together. A site where you can search for the most popular websites, whether they are legit or just another scam bag off to make a fool out of you. Their enormous database is constantly updated so more and more sites are being reviewed and rated by the most!

You should never let innocence become your downfall, check out the credibility of the site first or the quality of the product before spending a penny. It is always better safe than sorry.
