Smile like a baby!
You cannot have positivity in life if you can’t even do a simple smile.
Smiling seems like such a small thing because it is, but it has a big effect. By smiling, you can “trick” your brain into thinking happy thoughts.
Smiling doesn’t just spread positivity, it also makes you more attractive to people and therefore, more social. You can draw in the right thoughts and the right people just by smiling.

Festival 7 pointsRead Now
Festivals are the reason of a culture to get known.
Life gave us unlimited gifts,
Why do we feel unfulfilled?
Because every day we focus on scarcity,
Because every day we focus on what we don’t have,
If we feel scared and unfulfilled we will keep losing what we have,
A feeling of scarcity is not our true nature but it is our major weakness,
Good example: “History of Adam”,
As per biblical history, Adam was the richest person on earth.
God gave Adam, all nature created on earth, as a gift to serve him,
God limited Adam not to touch and eat the fruit of only one tree.
Adam focuses on one tree that he doesn’t have, and finely he failed and loses what he has. Currently, so many individuals, societies, and nations are keeping repeating the same Adam mistake.
Let’s act altogether,
Start diagnosing your feeling; is there an area of your life where you feel unfulfilled? Repair your feeling. It is very easy, just start now to focus on what you have, and appreciate, accept and grateful for what you have now! And start to live a new fulfilled and abundant life!
We wish you a blessed holiday !

"Create a Positive and Progressive culture in your environment"
Positive thinking Improves Ageing and Resiliency!
Many scalars define ageing as the loss of ability to rapidly and completely recover from illness called resiliency. Currently, human death rates from disease increase exponentially with time. Essentially, chance of death – from cancer, heart disease and many infections, for example – roughly doubles every eight to nine years.
Positive thinking Improve Resiliency!
Studies show that how we perceive aging affects our longevity;
A 2019 study found that positive thinking about age can result in an 11–15% longer lifespan and a stronger likelihood of living to age 85 or older.
Positive thinking about aging increase a person's will to live, making them more resilient to illness and more proactive about health. That's because adjusting your opinion on aging while you're still young can build a positive perspective that can have a tremendous effect on your life expectancy. Those with a positive outlook are also likely to experience less stress, reducing their likelihood of developing chronic diseases or disorders.

In each day, we receive one powerful resource equally, which is Time.
However, time is a limited resource, how can we grow to utilize the given limited time?
We know that the past is past, past is not in our hands, future is also not in our hands, but we have one powerful resource in our hand “our present moment”, our current state ,and time is our bridges of the “past and the future”.
Our current state open up a great new opportunity, if we can learn from the past and ready to craft a better future.

Living in Harmony with NatureRead Now
Living in Harmony with Nature is the starting point to build a successful life,
In order to grow as a human being, we should build our capacity to live in harmony with all nature!. We can not be developed or grow unless our lives become reconnected and in balance, cooperation, and harmony with nature.
This week is all about to remind to living in harmony with nature, During our 4 day journey, we try to recall, some powerful nature around us. We know this nature before, but positively knowing, reminding, and utilizing the benefit from this nature has a big difference, then knowing only.
That is why we say, investing our coffee break time to remind this powerful nature around us has a mining.
If you remember, the little bacteria around the ocean produce 20% of the oxygen on earth. This is a great indication that every nature and every human being created on the earth has its own purpose...
So, we can say the first step of any growth starts from CREATING A COMMUNITY WHERE THERE IS HARMONY WITH NATURE.
A community where there is harmony, of human with human and human with other nature is very critical, as all have equal living rights and have a purpose, to support our growth.
Currently, the world is moving in the opposite directions and we are observing so many challenges every day, (conflict, health issues etc). So many scholars are now trying to advocate for the harmonious coexistence of humans with humans and humans with nature, they are advising to rationally develop and utilize resources, pay attention to environmental issues, and build the future of human growth connected to nature.
If the first step "Human-Harmony" is ensured,
we can effortlessly Sparkle our :
We can naturally control, maintain and boost our health, endurance and longevity.

Hit optimal Hydration-Read Now
Hit optimal Hydration,
Your hydration level depends on your daily water intake.
Majority of people wait until they feel thirsty to drink water, when they have already lost around 2%-3% of their body's water. Being dehydrated by just 2% impairs performance in mental and physical tasks. Dehydration is the result of your body not having enough water. And because water is imperative to so many bodily functions, dehydration can be very dangerous.
Severe dehydration can result in a number of severe complications, including: swelling in your brain, kidney failure, seizures, also affects your strength, power, and endurance.
Let’s see the % of water level in our Body,
According to a study published in 1945 and still widely cited, the amount of water in our body counts like this:-
Being attentive to the amount of water you drink each day is important for optimal health. Most people drink when they’re thirsty, which helps regulate daily water intake.
According to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, general water intake (from all beverages and foods) that meet most people’s needs are:
So, ideally men would consume about 100 ounces (3.0 liters) of water from beverages, and women, about 73 ounces (2.12 liters) from beverages.

90% of our EnergyRead Now
90% of our energy comes from “oxygen”!
Ocean , is one of the powerful source of oxygen. Scientists estimate that 50%-80% of the oxygen production on Earth comes from the ocean. The majority of this production is from oceanic plankton, drifting plants, algae, and some bacteria that can photosynthesize. One particular species, Prochlorococcus, is the smallest photosynthetic organism on Earth.
This little bacteria produces up to 20% of the oxygen in our entire biosphere. That’s a higher percentage than all of the tropical rainforests on land combined.
Let’s back to our power house “oxygen”
Oxygen is the most important nutrition of our cells, every function in our body is dependent on oxygen, and it is the power for our body and muscles.
Oxygen is the element that our cells need to create energy, to keep us going and to make us perform at higher levels. Increased levels of oxygen help us perform better, giving energy to both our mind and body.
If we lack oxygen we are not able to perform physically, and we will feel tired and experience fatigue.
Is your current breathing optimal?
Optimal breathing has a great influence on our health and well-being since it is directly linked to the oxygen level in our body. A healthy adult takes between 12 and 20 breaths per minute. But we should actually all take a much lower number of breaths - around 6-8 breaths per minute.
Despite the large numbers of breaths we take, most of us are still not aware that we do not breathe optimally.
Today coffee break nuance: integrated this 4 simple action as one part of your coffee break activity, and boost the level of oxygen in your body:
1. Take a Fresh open Air,
Fresh air, bring you additional amounts of oxygen to your lungs and you feel energized.
2. Drink water,
Human lose on average about 400 milliliters of water per day.
In order to oxygenate and expel carbon dioxide, your lungs need to be hydrated.
3. Eat iron-rich foods, ( Your Lunch)
Certain foods can help improve the oxygen levels in your blood. Iron is a mineral needed for our red blood cells, the cells that transport blood around the body. Great sources of iron-rich foods are green leafy vegetables like kale and broccoli, fruits such as apples, and lean proteins such as eggs, poultry, and fish.
4. Movement (or Exercise )
The better we are at obtaining and utilizing oxygen through making movement , the more energy our cells are able to produce. Increased oxygen utilization will, therefore, strengthen our endurance.
Those of you, who experience MASSK- “Accelerate Transformational leadership Level I and Level II and Health workshop program”. We believe you already integrate this simple step’s and other powerful techniques we shared you as part of your daily life.
Those of you who don’t test the program we highly encourage you to join recent calendar and experience this life changing opportunity.

Sunrise (Day) and Sunset (night) is Prefect
Here is how,
Morning sunlight help you boost your mental and physical wellbeing. A 10-15M, morning sunlight exposure helps for a strong bone. Yet most of us thought morning sunlight is for a little baby right?,
Exposure to morning sunlight helps your brain to increase a hormone called serotonin.
Serotonin is associated with boosting mood; reducing stress and helping a person feel calm and focused. This is the critical element to produce the best result in our working hour’s right?
The sun’s benefits go beyond fighting stress, and mood-boosting,
According to researchers, those who live in areas with fewer daylight hours are more likely to have some specific cancers than those who live where there’s more sun during the day. These cancers include colon cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, ovarian cancer, etc
Without enough sun exposure, your serotonin levels can dip. Low levels of serotonin are associated with a higher risk of major depression with seasonal patterns (formerly known as a seasonal affective disorder or SAD). This is a form of depression triggered by the changing seasons. So, you’re more likely to experience this type of depression in the wintertime, when the days are shorter.
Due to this connection, one of the main treatments for depression with seasonal patterns is light therapy, also known as phototherapy. Anxiety-related disorders and panic attacks have also been linked with changing seasons and reduced sunlight.
You may ask what about darkness or sunset?
The night darkness triggers the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping you sleep. Also, it has powerful antioxidant benefits that could help lower the risk of eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration. That is why night time sun light exposure is not recommended.
The darkness hormone wants more darkness to get released and support you for proper and healthy sleep.
Start today to build a positive relationship with this natural gifts and boost your mental and physical wellbeing.
Enjoy the positive life journey!
