Song of the day 71#

Colors of the Wind
You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know
You don’t know
You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
How high will the sycamore grow
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind
💚

Dreams do come true?

Last night I had a weird dream. A heavy dream.

I dreamed that I was struggling to climb a rough, muddy hill. The path was harsh, there were obstacles along the way, rocks falling down and that it was really cold.

I also dreamed that the hill was so slippery and slimy, and even if the journey was so hard I still got to arrive at the top where a long and scary crocodile met me on the way.

I was so happy that I managed to arrive at least at the top but I was so frightened when I encountered the forceful animal.  The animal though did not try to bite me or fight with me, he just chased and followed me along the way.

The new path on the top was green and beautiful, surrounded by amazingly old buildings and stones. It felt like every single one of them had their own soul and purity, bringing magic to the place.

I was so disappointed though that I could not be free and eventually team up with the crocodile. His deeds were bad and cruel, bringing up to life stoned creatures and stealing their kind soul away.

One by one, the stones became cold and scary creatures and the crocodile was bringing them to life despite their will.

During the dream I felt so many things, that I cannot even explain. I felt sadness, disgrace, joy and then fear, unwillingness and helplessness.

I don’t even know how to understand this dream and how to explain it. All I know is that I felt it and just want to know the path to escape the crocodile.

How Autumn changes your organism

Good morning, dear readers!

As you know yesterday I posted an article about autumn, beauty and gifts that are brought with it. Today, however, I am going to tell you in a few rows how it affects the autumn season of the body and how we can protect it from the changes that occur.

With the sudden change in the temperature of the autumn season, the rays of the sun, the human body is affected, and at the same time the lifestyle too.

Low quality of sleep during the fall

The short days of autumn and the long nights bring changes in our body. The quality of rest decreases, causing us to be more sleepy, thus more susceptible to anxiety and depression.

According to the Harvard Institute, in October we sleep more, with 2.7 extra hours per night. Thus, we are affected by a condition called hypersomnia, which can be defined as the opposite of insomnia.

However, this long rest is not exactly beneficial for the body. The eyes are affected by low ultraviolet sun rays during the day in autumn in comparison with the summer time, so our habits are affected. As a result, we sleep longer but wake up tired in the morning.

It is recommended to enjoy the fresh air and the sun’s rays as much as possible, and respect strictly the sleeping hours.

We become more susceptible to infections and colds

During the fall the viruses act more easily due to the humid environment and cold. As the temperature drops in the thermometer, the world becomes sick much easier.

The appearance of allergens in the air, different types of pollen and mold can seriously affect the body during the fall. The best way to protect this factor from negative factors is to maintain proper hygiene, protecting us from germs.

Mood swings

With the beginning of the school the traffic intensifies, and probably the volume of work will give us a headache and all these can affect the mood, making us feel that we lost control.

The best solution is to meditate for a few moments every day and keep in mind that we are human beings and we do not have to load the program more than we can carry.

Healthy food

Autumn is predicting the coming of winter, the cold season. Winter is the season of comfort and cold, when the land is barren and the food is rare.

Our bodies want to consume more dense foods, such as fats and carbohydrates, and our metabolism can cease within a preservation area to create the layer for the following winter season.

It is important to focus on healthy and seasonal foods such as potatoes, pumpkin, beetroot, also soups and stews. It is very important to have an active life, practicing sports and take care of our own body.

Dehydration of the body

With the lowering of the temperature we have a higher chance of feeling dehydrated. If during the summer we drink more water due to the unbearable heat, during the cold seasons we consume more hot drinks such as coffee and tea that does not hydrate the body as good as water does.

To avoid dehydration the most recommended is to consume at least two liters of water per day.

Conclusions

Autumn is a season of transition, meditation and inner reflection. At the end of the day it is important to honor the changes of the season and the changes within us. Let’s use all the resources available to improve our body and become a better version of us.

Schimbarile organismului uman ce au loc toamna

Buna dimineata, dragi cititori!

Dupa cum bine stiti ieri am postat un articol cu privire la toamna, frumusetile si darurile ei imbelsugate. Astazi insa voi incerca sa va povestesc in cateva randuri in ce mod afecteaza anotimpul toamnei organismul si cum putem sa il protejam de aceste transformari.

Odata cu schimbarea brusca a temperaturii din anotimpul toamnei, a razelor soarelui, poposeste si schimbarea organismului uman si totodata a stilului de viata.

Calitatea scazuta a somnului pe parcursul toamnei

Zilele scurte de toamna si noptile lungi aduc modificari in corpul nostru. Calitatea odihnei scade, determinandu-ne sa fim mai somnorosi, astfel mai susceptibili la stari anxioase si depresii.

Conform unui studiu realizat de catre institutul Harvard, in luna octombrie dormim cel mai mult, cu 2.7 ore in plus pe noapte. Astfel, suntem afectati de o conditie denumita hipersomnie, ceea ce se defineste ca opusul insomniei.

Totusi, aceasta odihna indelungata nu este intocmai benefica pentru organism. Deoarece ochii ne sunt patrunsi de raze ultraviolete in timpul zilei toamna mai putin decat vara, obiceiurile noastre de somn sunt afectate. In consecinta, dormim mai mult dar ne trezim tot obositi dimineata.

Recomandat este sa ne bucuram de aer proaspat si de razele soarelui cat mai mult, si sa respectam cu strictete orele de odihna.

Devenim mai susceptibili la infectii si raceli

In timpul toamnei virusurile actioneaza mai usor datorita mediului umed si rece. Odata ce temperatura scade in termometre, lumea se imbolnaveste mult mai usor.

Aparitia alergenilor in aer, diferite tipuri de polen si mucegaiurile pot afecta grav organismul in timpul toamnei. Cea mai buna modalitate de a ne proteja de acesti factori negativi fiind pastrarea unei igiene corespunzatoare, ferindu-ne de germeni.

Starea de spirit

Odata cu inceperea scolii traficul se inteteste, probabil si volumul de munca de la serviciu ne da batai de cap si toate acestea ne afecteaza starea de spirit, simtind ca lucrurile ne scapa de sub control.

Solutia este sa meditam pentru cateva momente in fiecare zi si sa ne amintim ca suntem fiinte umane si nu trebuie sa ne incarcam programul mai mult decat putem duce.

Alimentatie sanatoasa

Toamna prevesteste venirea iernii, sezonul rece. Iarna este sezonul rece in care pamantul este sterp si mancarea este rara.

Corpurile noastre doresc sa consume mai multe alimente dense, precum grasimi si carbohidrati, iar metabolismul nostru poate incetini in incercarea de a pastra aceasta energie pentru sezonul de iarna care urmeaza.

Important este sa ne concentram pe mancaruri sanatoase si de sezon precum cartofi, dovlecei, mere, sfecla, de asemenea supe si tocanite. Pe langa nutritie este la fel de important sa avem o viata activa, practicand sport si avand grija de corpul nostru.

Deshidratarea organismului

Odata cu scaderea temperaturii avem mai mari sanse de a ne simti deshidratati. Daca pe parcursul verii bem mai multa apa datorita caldurii insuportabile, in timpul anotimpurilor reci consumam mai mult bauturi calde precum cafea si ceai care nu hidrateaza organismul precum apa.

Pentru a ne feri de deshidratare cel mai recomandat este sa consumam cel putin doi litri de apa pe zi.

Concluzii

Toamna este un anotimp de tranzitie, de meditatie si reflectare interioara. La finalul zilei este important sa onoram schimbarile sezonului si schimbarile dinlauntrul nostru. Haideti sa utilizam toate resursele disponibile pentru a ne imbunatati organismul si a deveni o mai buna versiune a noastra.

Welcome back, dear Fall

I’m not sure if the fact that I was born in September is a reason to love you more, but I really missed you, gray autumn.

Since the summer I felt that something did not fit in the decor. The breathable heat, the scorching sun and the sweat made me want you more and more.

Many people become nostalgic with the arrival of your season, autumn. But I don’t feel that at all. I love the sweet expression of wind after the drizzle of summer, the cool splashes of rain entering the skin burnt by the sun, the sky steeped by clouds.

Maybe you feel what I feel, dear autumn. In a way, our feelings are reciprocal at this time of life, feeling together an unexpected sadness.

Like me, you change the shades of your soul to more serious and dry colors, from light green to dark brown, orange and red. We mature together in the monotonous dance of life, a long-desired season.

From the early hours of the morning you bring cold and moist shivers, sprinkling mist over the summer bedding, possessing the entire world. As a hesitant young girl you play with the temperatures and make changes to the world at your leisure without thinking about the consequences.

So while the morning is cold and ignorant, the noon brings unruly sunshine and high temperatures. In the evening it is much harsher than in the morning, the degrees falling far below the thermometer.

Nothing compares to a cup of hot tea, sipped intensely in front of the fire that burns the wet wood. Even the mohair in the cardigan braided by the mother has its place and handles the skin frightened by low temperature.

I like the sound of wilted leaves freshly fallen from the trees and their unmistakable scent. I would play all day hiding in the dry garden behind the house, enjoying myself as a child of your gifts.

The aroma of ripe apples, the sound of walnuts tumbling on the ground from the old tree, the cherries full and tasty in the fall, the burgundy plums and black grapes, all are gifts brought by you, rich autumn.

The strong smell of resin and wood, the stratified wood in algorithmic rows on the thick wall belonging to the house fence. The hard working people preparing for winter healthy and delicious preparations, all of which are part of your favorite activities in the fall.

The same activities are repeated every season, but each year is special in its own way and you make this possible every fall. Thank you for being here!
