2018. Inspirations and Motivations. (are you still good on your new year resolutions?)

That last digit change seems to signify the need for new beginnings for a better year every year. HOPE is what gets us through daily and that is already a positive start.

So in the spirit of The New Year Resolution some reflections for an auspicious start and move forward into the Chinese New Year:

1. Dust off, move forward NOT Dust off, move on. 
The latter seems to have a tinge of regret - leaving behind things you can't or didn't accomplish. 

Never hold on to your regrets because you will fear the future. 

Dusting off is removing the cobwebs. We dont want to hold on to the cobwebs, do we? 


2. Be a SMILE. Don't be a FROWN. 
Try this:
Do you see how it lights up your face?

Do you see how it brings everything down?

Everyone likes to be around a happy person. 

When you tell yourself to be happy, your brain listens to you. 

Positivity is infectious. Just like a smile. You smile and the world smiles back with you. 

Negativity zaps energy. Although they come in strong at the beginning, all the time (and oh my! Aren't those stressful times?!), they always gets negated out eventually.  And they end up in their own sorry negative circles. 

Leave them behind. Life is just too valuable for negativity. Dont give anyone the permission to make you unhappy!

You want to surround yourself with positive people who supports your move forward, not people who tears you down because of their insecurities.

3. Be grateful for what you have and do not dwell on what you don't have. Don't be an "if only" or a "would haves" because by that terms, you stop living and continue regretting.

4. Be human. Be humane. Be more humane.  

We bash ourselves hard all the time over failures.  We judge ourselves harshly sometimes. We are unkind to ourselves.

No wonder we are super stressed. 

Be kind to animals and to ourselves. 

5. Obstacles doesn't exist. They are all challenges. When you think this way, you shift your gear to a problem solution mode.

After all, every wall is a door.

Happy new year all year round everyone!

Yours in healthy, beauty and happiness,
Dee Dee

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
