Does Meditating make a difference to your body and life?
18 Posts Last Activity 03/01/2017View
By listening to your body and training your brain, it is possible to activate different centres in the brain to benefit your health and mind. Tibetan monks and yogis have been practicing this art for centuries. Miraculous things have been achieved by using deep meditation. It helps with lowering blood pressure, reduction in anxiety and stress and most beneficial of all Neuroplasticity. I copy here and explanation of Neuroplasticity: Neuroplasticity: The brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment. I have practiced daily meditation for many years, it is as important to me as breathing. Along with Tai qigong a gentle excercise, I have more control over my mental and biological development. It would definitely be a huge benefit to the whole population.

Are you living where you always wanted to live?

I am just being rather nosy but am intrigued to know whether you have ended up where you always wanted to live or if you have a burning desire to have a foray/end your days somewhere else? I am a country girl born and bred but following my marriage break up I lived in Bournemouth for a year where I just didn't earn enough money to live so headed for London - twenty six years now and I have never had a single second of regret at doing so. I love the general buzz, the diversity, the history - in fact everything! So, are you where you are because of circumstance? Happy there? Wish beyond anything that you were elsewhere? I'd love to know.

Just a place to drop in and have a chat about what is happening to you today, so if you are fed up of treading in " Cowpats ", from the field of life(!), wipe your feet here ( I will be out when you do mind) Anyway I will kick off ( my shoes) and say, Good morning anyone - a rather cool one here 5°c and with rain forecast for later, although I think its much worse up country. How is it where you are ? In the news I have just heard that Jimmy Young has just died, aged 95 RIP. Shame I remember him on radio 1 and 2..., on a lighter note - News from Imperial College - A new theory about what happens when a body is immersed in warm water. The phone rings!! Yup I can vouch for that one ok folks. over to you !

Opportunities to Give Back

Hey everyone, so I’m posting on behalf of Action on Hearing Loss (RNID) and have never done something like this before but hopefully you’ll all be really positive about it. 1 in 6 people in the UK live with hearing loss and, as you can imagine, this can create a lot of barriers in day-to-day life. We work to stop the isolation hearing loss can cause and we fight to make things more accessible for those who live with this 24/7 condition. I’m really hoping some of you would be interested in supporting the work we do by joining our team of volunteers who help raise essential funds for us. There’s so many simple ways your support could help such as: speaking to community groups, placing collection tins in your local area or arranging coffee mornings. We’re a small team and so work with all our volunteers directly to make sure they have the best possible experience. Would love to know what you all think

Hello :) For those seeking a home abroad this might be of interest? We are letting go of our family home abroad, having travelled back and forth between the island since around 1994 for work and play. It is a villa with self contained annex (sleeps 8 people in total) and in the north of the island in Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca. If anyone is interested please let me know and I will send you further details. All the best, Louise

Unusual Birthday Ideas for a 53 year old man?
4 Posts Last Activity 23/08/2016View
Every year I usually manage to come up with an unusual present for my husband - but for some reason this year I am really struggling to find something. He drives Jags, loves Sci-Fi and has read endless books, enjoys cooking. I know there are loads of things I could buy - but trying to think "out of the box"...I have done all the cookery courses, aston martin drive day - surprise weekends away, glider day - any new ideas? Would appreciate any sensible suggestions!

Home Improvement and DIY
6 Posts Last Activity 15/06/2016View
There is a minefield of home-improvement ideas and so many people need more information on what works well, who to avoid and how to do things that improve our home. It maybe we are downsizing and need advice, it maybe we're considering home improvements to accommodate visiting grandchildren or just because we now have more time on our hands to do the jobs we never had time for.
