This is a strategy that I have recently adopted into my own life. It’s a subtle reminder that everything – the good and bad, pleasure and pain, approval and disapproval, achievements and mistakes, fame and shame – all come and go. Everything has a beginning and an ending and that’s the way it’s supposed to be.
Every experience you have ever had is over. Every thought you’ve ever had, started and finished. Every emotion and mood you’ve experienced has been replaced by another. You’ve been happy, sad, jealous, depressed, angry, in love, shamed, proud, and every other conceivable human feeling. Where did they all go? The answer is, no one really knows. All we know is that, eventually, everything disappears into nothingness. Welcoming this truth into your life is the beginning of a liberating adventure.

In a 2016 study, researchers found evidence that the popular mouthwash Listerine can control gonorrhea bacteria in people’s mouth and throat.
While the antibacterial fluid is used to kill harmful oral bacteria, researchers of the new study said that it could also be indiscriminately killing the beneficial strains of microbes that provide protection against obesity and diabetes, as well as those that help the body produce nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide helps regulate the insulin levels of the body. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism, balancing energy, and keeping the body’s sugar levels in check.
Frequency Of Use
Mouth washes act on all bacteria in the mouth, the good and the bad. By removing the good bacteria it permits the harmful bacteria to grow and increase.
Latest research is recommending that you should limit your use of mouthwash to just once a day to avoid eliminating the helpful bacteria in the mouth.

For people on Medicare, there are some changes to be aware of for 2018
“Medicare is going to replace everyone’s Medicare card starting in April 2018 through April 2019. The cards will be replaced on a scheduled basis. Everyone will get a new card that will have the Social Security number removed and replaced with a unique ID number. It will look different. Nobody needs to initiate anything.”
“There are a lot of scams. There are people calling Medicare beneficiaries, saying they need to pay $35 for these new cards. But Medicare will never call to verify a Medicare number,” or ask for money.
For people on Medicare, there are some changes to be aware of for 2018.
The open enrollment period for Part D prescription drug plans and Part C Medicare Advantage plans is Oct. 15 through Dec. 7.
Prescription drug plans, known as Part D, are advisable for people on Medicare if you are not enrolled in an HMO with drug coverage.
In the past, Medicare allowed companies to merge their enrollees with existing plans,”we have not heard if that is still true.
It’s important to read the annual notice of change from your company. “If people choose not to renew, they have extra time to find other coverage, but it’s important to pay attention to the dates.”
You shouldn’t risk a coverage gap. If this particular plan ends Dec. 31, you have until Feb. 28 to renew. But that leaves two months uncovered — you don’t want to do that.
Many older Americans who have Affordable Care Act insurance policies are going to miss a Sept. 30 deadline to enroll in Medicare, and they need more time to make the change, advocates say.
A lifetime of late enrollment penalties typically await people who don’t sign up for Medicare Part B, which covers doctor visits and other outpatient services, when they first become eligible at age 65. That includes people who mistakenly thought that because they had insurance through the ACA marketplaces, they didn’t need to enroll in Medicare.
What is the difference between clinical depression and depression?
Clinical depression is the more-severe form of depression, also known as major depression or major depressive disorder. It isn’t the same as depression caused by a loss, such as the death of a loved one, or a medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder.

Adult dance classes are a great way to treat any form of mental illness.
It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Centre.
After the community sing-along, led by Alice at the piano, it was time for the star of the show – Harry the Hypnotist!
Harry explained that he was going to put the whole audience into a trance “Yes, each and every one of you and all at the same time,” said Harry.
The excited chatter dropped to silence as Harry carefully withdrew, from his waistcoat pocket, a beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.
“I want you to keep your eyes on this watch” said Harry, holding the watch high for all to see.
“It’s a very special and valuable watch that has been in my family for six generations,” said Harry.
He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, “Watch the watch — watch the watch —- watch the watch”
The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth.
The lights were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.
One hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch.
They were all hypnotized.
And then, suddenly, the chain holding the watch broke!
The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst into fragments on impact. “SHIT!” shouted Harry.
It took the staff three days to completely clean up the Senior Citizens Centre and Harry was never invited back again.
When nothing goes right… Go left.

Adult Dance Classes Increase Weight Loss & Mental Health
The reason why people dance tango is to get the feeling of connection. No other dance allows such a close and deep connection. This is why people persist with that goal for a very long time. If it were not for that, people would give up the dance requires a lot of sustained effort to develop that connection. It’s human nature – we all want to connect with other humans.
The beauty of tango is in the oneness of the union rather than the performance of the individual. In tango nothing is ornate, but everything is exquisite and elegant. To tango is to indulge yourself, not to impress others.
