Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Let Nature Be Your Alarm Clock

Since we all need to awaken our senses to the tune of relaxing it seemed very apropos to post catnipoflife's (Awakenings' sister site) latest post here. Visit both sites...the videos are a little different on each one.

Word of the Day: Relax

Life is filled with schedules and deadlines. Most mornings begin abruptly with the harsh, annoying sounds of an alarm and first words of the day are often "Hurry, hurry, you [we] will be late!" Routines govern every minute of every hour and life in the moment is lost within chaos. 

STOP! In order to maintain sanity, RELAX! Throw aside senseless thoughts of "I will never get caught up!" Because you probably never will. The only true form of 'catch-up' is red, comes in a bottle and is labeled Ketchup! You will get done what you can get done, nothing more (perhaps less if you procrastinate)! The 24 hours, 1440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds (however you look at the course of a day) will pass regardless. You cannot add to it...that is all there is! So...slow down, chill, loosen-up, unwind, RELAX!

Embrace Calming Music

A very powerful time lapse video with calming music:
 Mountains, trees, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and Northern Lights.

Blue seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation. It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order - we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky. It slows the metabolism. The paler the blue the more freedom we feel.

 The Earth. An ocean planet. Our home.

Do something exciting before you relax!
