Longevity is the quest of many individuals. To live a long life and yet remain physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy is a challenge requiring not only great wisdom but also knowledge and information..

On this page, you will find longevity news to empower your mind to take the right actions and choices in life so that you may live your life as if everything is a miracle.


The recent CNN health news “Learn to Live with It: Becoming Stress-Free” is enlightening: it shows you how to live a stress-free life to live longer and healthier..

“People the world over believe that stress comes from external sources.

One complains of a nagging wife or hysterical husband. Another finds fault with the demands of work or the exploitation of management. Someone else grumbles at summer being too hot or winter being too cold.

Everyone thus lives with the belief that factors outside themselves produce stress -- so their entire focus is on correcting the external world. Yet despite our best efforts to fix these external factors, the problems remain unsolved and our minds continue to be consumed by stress.

Pleasure or pain, joy or sorrow, peace or stress-these are not found in external objects or beings. They are found in the relationship you have with those things.

In life, be it with business or family, relationships matter. Lack of a proper relationship leads to frustration and builds up stress. Ironically, people take utmost care to choose the "right partner," but fail to set up the "right relationship" with that person -- and lose peace and harmony in the process.

It is not whom or what you meet in life that matters but how you meet it.

Your relationship with the world is entirely dependent on the nature of your inner personality. Your inner personality comprises two things: the mind and the intellect.
The mind desires and feels. The intellect reasons, judges, and decides.

When the intellect loses control over the mind's desires, you become disturbed. Stress is the mental agitation caused by unfulfilled desires. Thus the fundamental requirement for a stress-free life is to develop a strong intellect and control desires.

Intellectual strength is distinct and different from intelligence. Intelligence is mere storage of information-knowledge acquired from external sources and educational institutions, from teachers and textbooks. Any amount of intelligence cannot, per se, develop your intellect. The intellect is developed by individual effort through exercising one's faculty of questioning and reasoning.

With the lack of development of the intellect, people fail to understand that every human being is distinct and different from another-that each is governed by his or her own singular nature.

Therefore, we should assess the nature of each human individually. But few follow this practice in life. Without making individual assessments you are not able to relate to others properly. As a result, you expect one to behave differently from one's fundamental nature.”

Words of Wisdom

Always put yourself in someone’s shoes, and look at everything from his or her perspectives, instead of from your own. In addition, we are all inter-connected with one another somehow and somewhat. Understanding the “oneness of all life” will take away much of your stress in everyday life. Let go of your ego to let go of all your attachments, which are the sources of human stress.
NO EGO NO STRESS may show you how to use human wisdom to let go of your ego to live a stress-free life as if everything is a miracle. Letting go of your attachment to your ego-self is not easy; you also need the wisdom of letting go.

(CNN) Multitasking Brains

"Our brains on multitasking aren't nearly as good as we think they are. Let's say you're working on an activity over here, on the right side of the brain, and suddenly you're trying to multitask another activity, like talking on the phone.

You're not actually doing both activities at the same time, in fact, you're now diverting your attention from one part of your brain to another part of your brain. That takes time, that takes resources, that takes brain cells.

What happens on the other side of the brain is that you're starting a brand new activity, so in fact you're probably slower and not nearly as good at doing both activities at the same time.

We can shift our focus really fast, sometimes it takes just a 10th of a second  But the time doesn't matter as much as the bandwidth the brain requires to move back and forth. Now that might affect your performance, and might also affect the quality of the work that you finally produce.

Take an everyday activity like driving. When you look at the MRI of someone who is in driving mode, see how much of their brain is activating there? Now if you just layer in one more thing-if person is listening while they are driving-and all of a sudden the amount of attention, the amount of brain bandwidth going toward driving decreases by about 37%. So you're not multi-tasking, you've in fact reduced the amount of attention you're now paying to your driving.

There's about 2% of the population that are super multitaskers. It's sort of a genetic gift. Most of us don't have this gift. But these are people who are truly able to do several different activities at the same time without losing efficiency or losing quality as they do all that work.

This may or may not surprise you, depending on your perspective, but there have been studies that show women are generally better at multitasking than men. Also, people who thought they were the best at multitasking are almost always in fact the worst. Perhaps they were multitasking too much when they thought they were good at multitasking."

Words of Wisdom

The bottom line: whether you are a woman better at multitasking than a man, or a genetically gifted super multitasker, do not multitask. The reason is simple: wisdom in living in the present moment. According to Tao wisdom, the ancient wisdom from China, only the present is real: the past was gone and the future is yet to come. If your mind can stay in the present (what is known as the presence of mind), you will see things very differently, with much clarity. If, on the other hand, your mind is shuffling between the past with memories and the future with expectation, you will not have the wisdom to see the reality of things. Wisdom is the capability to see things as they are. Be A Better And Happier You With Tao Wisdom shows you how Tao wisdom can make you a better and happier you and live in a stress-free world.
