"It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. 
It is nothing but work, work, work."
-- Henry David Thoreau

Is relaxation possible only when we’re not working? 
No. With awareness and practice, we can be relaxed 
no matter what we are doing. In fact, when we work
in a relaxed state, our productivity increases as our 
effort decreases. For true relaxation, we need to 
connect with our bodies -- to consciously and
intentionally become aware of tension and release it.
"Anxiety breaks a man’s backbone."
-- Hebrew proverb

"Don't hurry, don't worry. 
You're only here for a short visit. 
So be sure to stop and smell the flowers."
-- Walter Hagen

methods to relax, concentrate, focus, reflect, 
contemplate and illuminate yourself.

Title: An Introduction To Color Therapy

Artwork from Collection Painted by Rev.Bola


According to Color Therapists, colors are capable of influencing,
many aspects of our lives, including our mood,
mental state and energy levels including our non-physical energy centres.

According to Color Therapists, these centres form the non-physical energy that control the human body.

Each colour is thought to be associated with one of these seven energy centers,

If a person's energy center or spiritual dynamic so to say,
is thought to be out of balance or weak,
the color it's associated with is believed to help strengthen it.

Red is thought to be linked to the base center and the spine, hips and legs.
It's thought to stimulate and boost physical energy, strengthen willpower,
increase circulation, clear congestion and is linked with sexuality.
Too much red may overstimulate and possibly promote anger or aggressiveness.

Orange is thought to encourage joy, socializing and optimism,
which is why it's considered useful for depression or sadness.
Orange is associated with the sacral centre and it's believed to benefit the kidneys, urinary tract and the reproductive organs.
It also manages a person's sexuality, gender and family issues
Too much orange is thought to lead to tiredness, pessimism and confusion.

Yellow is associated with the solar plexus centre.
An imbalance in the solar plexus is thought to promote fear,
apprehension, confusion, lack of determination, introversion or power issues,
which this color is believed to balance.
Yellow is associated with the intellect and mental processes and is uplifting.
The solar plexus centre is also thought to influence the digestive system.
Too much yellow is believed to lead to poor concentration and hyperactivity.

Green is a color that's thought to encourage emotional stability,
purity and calmness. It's related to the heart centre,
so it's believed to help with emotional issues,
such as love, forgiveness, trust and compassion.
An imbalance in the heart centre is associated with fear of relationships,
mistrust, jealousy, isolation and insecurity.

Blue is related to the throat centre and is said to be connected to the throat and lungs. It's thought to enhance verbal expression and communication,
artistic expression and willpower.
It's a calming colour and is believed to help insomnia, anxiety,
throat problems, high blood pressure, migraine and skin irritation.

Indigo is associated with the Brow centre, located between the eyes,
and is related to the eyes and the lower part of the head.
It's said to encourage greater intuition and strengthen the lymph system,
immune system and help purify and cleanse the body.

*Purple or Violet*
Purple, or violet, is associated with the crown centre,
which is at the top of the head. It's thought to encourage spirituality, intuition,
wisdom, mastery and mental strength and focus.
Too much purple is thought to promote pride and arrogance.

Title: *How to Increase Your Motivation*

Title: *How to Increase Your Motivation*

Motivation is...

 A process that initiates, guides and maintains action. 
 A reason for taking action or behaving a certain way. 
 An inspiration for accomplishing something. 

It’s important to recognise that motivation changes depending on what you value most 
and the situation. You have the power to change the expectation you put on yourself 
and how you feel about the tasks at hand – in order to increase motivation. Past 
experiences, beliefs and even your culture influence your motivation. There are two 
types of motivation: intrinsic and extrinsic. 

When you have low motivation you feel stuck and sometimes frustrated with what life 
has dealt you. You’re usually not working towards a life you love, but instead might 
complain about the life you have. With low motivation you tend to think your 
weaknesses define who you are, rather than realise that you can grow and learn. 

When you have high motivation you make choices and take action to create what you 
want in life. For instance, if you wanted to work in a certain industry you would seek out 
the resources and gain the knowledge you needed to get a job in that industry. With 
high motivation you tend to have a natural interest in what you do; and if the natural 
interest isn’t there to begin with you create one to keep yourself motivated. You seek out 
ways to build your weaknesses into strengths and are eager to move through setbacks 
and failures – you see these as ideal learning curves. And with high motivation you 
recognise that your actions make positive changes… so keep moving forward.
