UK Research by charity Mind has found that work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives. With the deepening economic crisis, mental health issues linked to work are on the rise.
One in six people of working age in the UK are considered to have mental health conditions, ranging from stress and anxiety and those with depression, which is relatively common, to those with rarer disorders such as schizophrenia.
It would make good economic sense for businesses to become proactive and hire health care providers that specialize in relieving stress. This move could easily provide a cost effective to lower stress.
Ise Jingu is the shrine most central to the identity of the Japanese as a people and as a nation.
Here is a request for prayers …time is relative, and healing comes from the Absolute.
Changing our thoughts, offering gentle suggestion to those around us who are broadcasting painful thoughts, and prayer can offer benefits at any time.
Much love, Tsukina
A Japanese Monk Sent this Prayer Request
The damage of earthquake in Japan is devastating.
Unable to cool down the reactor(s) we are facing a possibility of nuclear plant explosion.
Please join our prayer. Feel free to forward this prayer request to anyone.
It would be great if more people can pray.
Here is a translation of a message/oracle from the Ise Shrine in Japan:
After sunset (each day or any time-editor’s note), we need strong power of prayer.
Please let me deliver the message to as many as possible.
We can stop this earthquake with our prayer but right now the nuclear plant is in danger.
Please everyone heal the suffering, sadness, anger, worry about nuclear plants.
Please do not think that this accident will bring justice.
Please care for each other. The energy toward conflict and fight is also fueling the things happening right now.
Please stop the conflict and stop the fight and change the worrying voice to the power of prayer.
Please pray that as many people as possible can be saved.
We will be O.K. if our hearts start connecting with each other, the earth will be healed.
There are the sound/vibration that can release the karma of earth.
Anyone who can make prayer sound, anyone who can do reiki,
anyone who can do long distance healing, ( everyone that prays-editor’s note)
please direct your energy to the center of Japan .
The exact location is above the Hachiro gata, Akita Prefecture .
If you can sing, please sing.
Humming is fine too.
Let the earth listen to the sound.
Please send gratitude to the earth.
If the mother earth wakes up then everything will stop.
The word Song/Sing writes in Japanese Kanji that small possibilities
support a big lack.
Please send your prayer to the earth to wake up the spirit.
I will be in meditation after the sunset.
I will pray for the light shining the sky even in the darkness.
Please everyone be safe.
Thank you for supporting my heart at this very difficult time.
Gratitude for the life.

Early AM meditation and exercise will create a new healthier you:
Exercising and meditating early lets your body decrease food cravings which will reduce your calorie intake for the day. Exercising and meditating daily significantly increases brain functioning for four to ten hours after your AM workout and meditation ends.
Getting up earlier means your body will be more ready to go to sleep earlier and you will sleep deeper and wake more refreshed.
Regular exercise and meditation at the same AM time let’s your endocrine system regulate your hormonal system and encourage a stable circadian rhythm.
Through regular exercise and meditation, the normal body rhythm stabilizes. This critical rhythm cycle prepares the body and mind for waking and exercise several hours before you actually open your eyes.
Regular exercise and meditation decreases stress and improves your health and wellness:
1. Circulating normal levels of hormones through the muscles at regular hours, prepare your body for exercise and meditation by regulating blood pressure, and heart rate.
Your organ systems’ energy can relax, refresh, rest and ready itself to function at peak efficiency at normal hours. Then your metabolism can normalize and in conjunction with all body’s hormones involved in activity and exercise, begin to elevate during sleep and help you be more alert, energized, and ready to exercise and meditate when you do wake up. 2. Increases your digestive energy so you will be hungry after exercise and be able to have a quality breakfast to start the day. Cravings and snacking will decrease, so many people can loss weight. 3. Your colon energy will improve and you will be able to have better elimination at normal times during the day. 4. Weight loss, improved muscle tone and increased stamina are often the bonus for
regular AM exercise and meditation.
The gift to yourself that keeps on giving
Exercising and having a quiet meditative time for yourself daily, brings your mind, body and emotions into a harmony that will increase your peace, patience and communication with yourself and others.
Finally, a parent produces a toy to help decrease germ fears in young children. Helping your children, students or patients to learn to take care of themselves without fear is the goal of disease education and hygiene classes. Viruses, the cold gem, the flu bug, ear ache virus are a few of the teaching tools developed by this company.
“Modern medicine” and biopharm. industries have done plenty to amp up people’s helplessness to fight germs or illnesses.
One parent did not know how to help calm her young 4-year-old son’s fear of germs after preschool lessons on hygiene. Then mom found Giant Microbes, a company dedicated to creating teaching toys with a message.
After giving her son a stuffed viral germ toy, he quite incentently wiping down everything he encountered with anti-viral tissues and could return to being a happy child again.
Will you find a giant stuffed cold germs, or cuddly E. coli, hugworthy heartworm under your tree this season?
Mini microbes are the new items this year, measles, rubella and the oh-so-popular diarrhea are the new Christmas tree ornaments. The toys are true to the microbes they represent.
Sales have spread virally through Facebook into niche markets such as museum shops and college bookstores. The toys depict each microbe at a million times its actual size or larger, and each comes with an often breezy but informative information card about their origins and avoiding illnesses they spread.
Now the Giant Microbes line has gone beyond the common microbes to exotic ones such as malaria and sleeping sickness, tiny critters such as dust mites and bed bugs, and water dwellers like copepods and algae. Some students take them to classrooms during their student teaching stints. Others use them as biology study tools.
Some American Red Cross divisions use the stuffed red blood cell in school presentations, and the Education Centre Library serving Ontario’s Canadore College and Nipissing University has dozens of Giant Microbes in its lending inventory. Resources
