The benefits of a bedtime routine
How to improve your sleep quality
How to create a relaxing sleep environment
•Use your feet instead of an elevator or escalator. This is good for your posture, your muscles, and your respira tory system, among other things.
•Participate in social or leisure activities so that you don't spend too much time in front of the television.
•Replace your junk food with fruit and you'll have less of an urge to snack, and more nutrients in your system.
•Get the right amount of sleep. Seven to nine hours is good, but any more than that makes us lethargic.
•Play with children or pets, or join a sports team. This not only strengthens the body but also stimulates the mind
A woman, 100 years old sang the following song for us in a mixture of Japanese and the local dialect:
To keep healthy and have a long life, eat just a little of everything with relish,go to bed early, get up early, and then go out for a walk. We live each day with serenity and we enjoy the journey.
To keep healthy and have a long life, we get on well with all of our friends. Spring, summer, fall, winter,We happily enjoy all the seasons.
The secret is bot to get distracted by how old the fingers are; From the fingers to the head and back once again.
Israeli neuroscientist Shlomo Breznitz once said:
There is a tension between what is good for someone and what they want to do. This is because people, especially older people, like to do things as they've always done them. The problem is that when the brain develops ingrained habits, it doesn't need to think anymore. Things get done quickly and efficiently on automatic pilot, often in a very advantageous way. This creates a tendency to stick to routines, and the only way of breaking these is to confront the brain with new information."
Our neurons start to age while we are still in our twenties. This process is slowed, however, by intellectual activity, curios ity, and a desire to learn.
Dealing with new situations, learning something new every day, playing games, and interacting with other people seem to be essential antiaging strategies for the mind.
Here are some ideas from Japanese Philosophy Book Ikigai by Hector Gracia.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
