Do you ever feel that you have a 6th sense? I often wonder why it’s such a taboo subject. As a child growing up in the 70s, I learned that anything extraordinary was to be feared, that it was supernatural. That’s quite a normal attitude in western society.
I often wonder about the timing of events. Just the other day Elizabeth and I were walking our dog Oscar (now ten and a half months old, if you’ve been following his progress ) towards the park in the morning.
I love to imagine that we live in a magical world. Aside from the dark lord element of the Harry Potter story, I think many of us would love to live in a world where magic was happening all around us and that we could use it.
Oscar is our puppy. He’s a yellow Labrador Retriever and is almost 8 months old. He arrived in our lives last October, as a cute, 8-week old bundle of love and play. He’s completely changed our lives for the better.
Given that stress is linked with illness, it might be no real surprise to learn that a positive outlook can have health-giving effects. At the very least, positivity spares us some stress but it seems to also have immune-boosting effects, as you can see below.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently. I’ve made an observation that when people learn a lot about health and nutrition, even though they enjoy better overall health when they act on their knowledge, they tend to get more colds. Of course this doesn’t apply to everyone but you might spot yourself if it does apply. And I have to admit, I went through that phase myself.
