Hi fellow bloggers! It has been an exciting week with temperature changes from 81 last Friday to snow and freezing rain yesterday. My body has no idea which direction it is heading. One minute I am running a fever from a drastic increase in temperature to freezing to death a few days later. My asthma is acting up and I am on an antibiotic. In addition that time of month came. God knows exactly how much my body can withstand. I pray the weather will improve and the temperature outside will approach a consistant degree. Meanwhile, each day I take slowly relying on God as He sees fit.
In many ways, I look forward as our community garden grows. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs awaiting harvest in the future. Recently, I have found my body craving a natural diet verses a diet full of chemicals. I am buying Kosher meats and eating organically when possible. My body is a reflection of what I eat. Therefore, I must make changes in my eating habbits. I have gained a tremendous amount of weight since I moved away from home 19 years ago. I have no excuses but myself. My confusion is Jesus Christ teaches I must put others before myself. I misunderstood what Christ meant. How can I put others fist in my life when I abuse my body with bad eating habbits? I am not setting a great example to others. Accourding to the Bible my body is a temple where the Holy Spirit dwells (First Corinthians 6 (19-20)). Hence, by taking care of my body I am honoring the Holy Spirit. More to come in the future...
PS: I hope everyone is feeling better. As for headaches and nausea I recommend eating candied ginger, burning citrus soy candles, foot massages, and classical music very low in the background. In addition, relaxation techniques work well too such as meditation/prayer. For dizziness in the car, I recommend accupuncture. As for the brain fogginess? Doccument everything: use a computer or digital tape recorder to record your thoughts. Find out how you learn. I need to have music in the background and I need to keep moving. I sit on an exercise ball instead of a chair. I have to read things out loud and answer myself out loud to memorize something.
According to Gardner and this webpage: http://www.tecweb.org/styles/gardner.html
Howard Gardner of Harvard has identified seven distinct intelligences. This theory has emerged from recent cognitive research and "documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways," according to Gardner (1991). According to this theory, "we are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Where individuals differ is in the strength of these intelligences - the so-called profile of intelligences -and in the ways in which such intelligences are invoked and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse problems, and progress in various domains."
