Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today, I want to talk to you about the quote of the day – more to life
Quote of the Day – More to Life
I loved this quote. Our life is always on auto-pilot. Living on auto-pilot means we don’t take time to consider the consequences of saying ‘yes’ to a social occasion, extra workload or commitment to friend or family member. Before we realize it we’ve got a calendar full of things we don’t actually want to do, because our default setting is to say ‘yes’. We don’t see the thoughts or behaviors that make us miserable. Hence we don’t know what triggers their self-destructive behaviors. Additionally, we can’t choose to stick to our diet or routine because our minds are on auto-pilot. Research showed that once our brains are familiar with an activity they ‘switch off’ and go into the auto-pilot mode. This allows us to undertake tasks without actually thinking about them and even more strangely, it showed that the brain seemed to perform the tasks better and with more accuracy when in Default Mode Network (DMN) than when in ‘switched on’ mode. The default mode network is a network of interacting brain regions that is active when a person is not focused on the outside world, measurable with the fMRI technique.
Hence, being in the auto-pilot mode we miss out on a lot of great things. You can’t remember what you did throughout the day. You feel guilty, like you haven’t accomplished much. Being on auto-pilot has its benefits for mundane activities, such as driving or grocery shopping. However, behaving with intentionality is critical when you must think through a situation, problem, or dilemma. Hence in order to have a more fulfilling life, we have to learn to use both system (auto-pilot and slow mode). Recently I have started making a more conscious effort to use both system. It has helped me immensely with my anxiety and PTSD.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to mygofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
