Eat Yourself Happy: Eat Fatty Foods

Food can greatly affect your mood, for better or for worse? When it comes to happiness and every other area in your life, food has the capacity to harm or heal. By learning about what foods to choose and avoid, you will be able to help your body and mind, and embrace happiness. Start off with looking for foods that are high in oil and yes I am talking nuts. Our brains rely on  fats, such as oils containing omega-3 fatty acids, and they do wonders for mood and improving happiness by allowing nerve cells to communicate more efficiently.  Walnuts, pumpkin seeds and fish oil are a great way to consume these. Omega-3 fatty consumptions has been have been demonstrated to reduce the prevalence of clinical depression in many different studies.

Look for fat, eating any fatty food does make you happy. "Eating fat seems to make us less vulnerable to sad emotions, even if we don't know we're eating fat," says psychiatrist Dr. Lukas Van Oudenhove, co-author of the study. For the study, researchers played sad music and showed sad photos to the participants. The participants who were injected with the saturated fat were happier than those who had been given a simple saline solution. The study is considered the first of kind to show that food's effect on mood is "really independent of pleasant stimuli". That is to say, eating fat foods makes you less likely to feel sad.

Sugar is the number one food to avoid if you wish to be happy. Sugar sets you up for a quick, false surge of energy when you feel the sugar high, which is then followed by a crash. Sugar can also harm your immune system and trigger depression.  A new study  suggesting that sugar may contribute to depression adds to a flood of findings linking sugar to a variety of both physical and mental health problems.

Because food has such a big effect on your mood, you would be wise to utilize it to its full potential. Instead of just choosing your meal based on what you desire at the moment, turn your plate into a powerful weapon that will fight depression and anxiety, and build and maintain your happiness.
You deserve the chance to feel joy, and by modifying your eating habits you can change your life for the better. Choose your mood by choosing your food, and see the difference it makes.

Baptism Pool

I was on the cusp of buying a birthing pool.   They are inflatable and relatively cheap.  Unfortunately, they are intended for women of about 5'9" height.  I, however, required the birthing pool for a man.  The man in question was over 6' tall.  He was, of course, not going to give birth but, rather, he had been born again.  The pool was required for baptism.  So instead of the birthing pool I bought a paddling pool.  The pool was 12' in diameter but only 30" high.  I set it up in the garden and filled it with water.  On my getting into the pool to try it out the week before the baptism, there was a veritable tidal wave engulfing a large section of my lawn.  No good then.  Instead I borrowed a custom made baptistry from a nearby church.  The baptism went swimmingly.
A couple of days before the baptism, which took place in our regular Sunday morning service, there was a pool tournament in our church.  The guy who was about to be baptised in the baptismal pool won…

Good News That Can Save Your Life At The End Of March

This March we commemorate the day Jesus died, Good Friday, right on the last day of the month. The significance of the death of Jesus is summed up in this verse:

 “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

 There is an amazing simplicity here – 21 words of only one syllable, one word of two syllables, and one word (righteousness) of three syllables. It could hardly be simpler than this–yet whole books could be written on the meaning of each phrase. How important is this verse? Miss this and you’ve missed the truth of God. If you get this right, you can be wrong in a lot of other places and still go to heaven. In these days of rampant theological confusion, it is vitally important that the church of Jesus Christ be firmly settled on the gospel message. That is, after all, our only message.

God has not committed to us a message about political power or military might.

“The Lord has laid on him the iniquity…

Low Carb is the Answer, don’t be fat forever.

Advanced technology is affecting our life today by causing an increase in luxuries and facilities that result in more laziness.  We can order almost anything on Amazon and get it delivered. We can get any food we want from the local supermarket. These and other cultural factors, such as the popularity of sugary foods,  have resulted in a simple horrific truth: more people are becoming obese these days. It is one of the most rapidly thriving health problems of the 21st century. This health problem is more serious in developed countries. It causes serious heart problems and results in devastated effects on body.

One cure, the one that I have found to work, is the adoption of low carbohydrate diet; a diet containing lesser amounts of carbohydrates. Low carb diet enhances your body by shifting your metabolism towards the burning of fat instead of carbs. As fats are the primary cause of obesity so they must be removed to cure the effect. When your intake of carbohydrates; which are direct …
