Fluid or crystallized, clues are clear


Can you get happier…

…at 75 than you were at 25? That’s an astounding “Yes” says Arthur C. Brooks in his book “From strength to strength“. Because happiness is not a thing – it’s a feeling we can master. Apparently if you experienced A LOT in your youth, your happiness at an old age is less likely. But also ‘if you don’t do anything with your Life, you won’t know when it’s over‘.  

Fluid intelligence to crystallized intelligence.

As our strengths change, we need to switch from the trajectory that once made us successful to the next one, that will make us successful in a broader sense. Young people have fluid intelligence (hard work, focus, quick analysis), but old(er) people have crystallized intelligence. The latter one is not about hard work or even focus. It’s about wisdom and passing on knowledge. Purpose is action.

10 most healing oils

You know what your favourite oils are… If you don’t quite understand what they are for, this Naturally Living Family lays it out what works. Here are 10 best essential oils for healing.


Results of using essential oils are not equall to how fast they penetrate our body. Some will work immediately, other effects may be felt after an hour or even several hours. The resolve may happen after several weeks or even months of using them. What makes one person sleep in 5 minutes, may not work at all for another person. Experimenting is good after reading thoroughly the safety guidelines, and inside labels (peel in opposite direction to the black edge of a label to find extensive instructions).

Homemade floor cleaner

The benefit of making a homemade floor cleaner is you can customize the blend and use essential oils for bugs to help keep them away! Whatever you hate in your home: ants, spiders, centipedes, mosquitoes, stink bugs, crawly creatures without a name, you can prevent while NOT using toxic remedies. Read how to make home made cleaner that repels bugs.

Essential oils that stain…

…and your laundry routine. While it’s beneficial to add essential oils to our laundry, you should know which ones and how. Good idea: premix oils in Thieves Laundry Soap or natural softener. Bad idea: add oils directly to clothes. Some essential oils can leave stains on your laundry due to a naturally occurring dark or yellow coloring from the original botanicals.

“You are already…

smarter, kinder, more ambitious, better looking, than 99.99 percent of the people who now have what you dream of having and who now do what you dream of doing.

Getting there is not about being better, more deserving, or smarter, my friend, it’s about realizing you already are, and acting like it.” ~The Universe Talk
