World Water Day – 22nd of March

Water – the source of life and even more that that. We could not live without water but do we really appreciate it? Thanks to this day we should really learn to treat water with more respect, appreciation and care. Water is an essential condition for our life and health.

Water is the cradle of life; if there had not been water on Terra, we would not be alive today. Still, the quality of waters all over the world is not what it used to be, especially because of humans’ actions everywhere. We should be more and more numerous to respect water surfaces and keep them clean.

Myself I am a big admirer of seaside places; some people love lakes, other would never get away from the ocean if living there for long…or some love rain – I could agree with all of them. I cannot explain why but water surfaces give me beneficial emotions, energies and I feel so happy whenever I spend time besides any type of water surface. I also love rain, as long as I don’t get completely soaked…In my home town, June is the “‘rain-month” already for many years now; it is raining a lot every June, but later in the year, thanks to that, I find the best fruits and vegetables in the fresh markets all over the country.

You all know much more about water, be it through your work or private lives; this day is meant to remind us all of the value of water and make us cherish all the water zones we have – on the continents or outside them.

The Buddhist Masaru Emoto has said: “Water has the magical capacities to give birth to all things and to keep information“. This thought is something wise we should meditate about, especially that our bodies contain, as you all know, lots of water. Drinking enough water also adds up a lot to our general physical and emotional health.

Enough talking – now, dear readers, go and drink a glass of mineral water, look at the drops of dew on the grass, check the clouds, wash your hands with warm water, listen to a waterfall or whatever puts you in a magical contact with…. Water. May you be blessed with healthy “waters” to drink and to admire!

Healthy forests and water – celebrated on 21&22 March Ziua internationala a padurilor si ziua internationala a apei

Water in all its shapes and forms is what creates still and will hopefully will forever create for us health, beauty, balance, divinity, mind relaxation and emotional awareness or whatever is inspiring each of you. It is difficult to just define water as H2O or a forest by ”just a bunch of trees”; we all know water and forests are much more than that and this is proved by a history of more than 3.000 years, Terra being so far 100% the only planet with usable water resources, not to talk about the amazing forests and green areas we have here and we should cherish, just like we cherish our families and friends as we could not survive wihout breathing or drinking.

Like I was mentioning to you in an earlier article, I have been using the Ecosia search engine every day and I’ve just received a short message from them – ”your searches are planting trees in Brazil”. It is a small gesture from my side but it gives me back infinite happiness to know that I can do something good for anyone (like this Brazilian man in the video who reminds me a bit of my Grandpa who died and whose health and longevity may be from now on enhanced, thanks to these trees, too). A happy coincidence and a wondeful story about water and forests that I truly hope you could find some time to discover after you finish with all your daily tasks 🙂 Here below you have the link, sent to me by Ecosia:

Despite not being a doctor, I have been reading on a constant basis about general health and longevity for already 20 years; as I would not trust one single source of information, I always read things about health from different sources, in different languages to which is added my own experience about health, nutrition and general well-being. A very simple advice I would give all of you and that can apply to many situations when you have a head-ache is to drink a glass of water, mineral water would be just perfect. Many times, a lack of hydration at the level of your brain can easily cause nausea or low/medium headaches. Water is the best in this situation and, on a regular basis, try to eat enough water-food (like fruits, veggies) and drink enough non-alcoholic drinks – thinking of this photo above, aloe juices are also quite good IF there is not too much sugar inside.

There are many things and stories I have also about forests, about water, some from my own experience and others I know from my family and friends. I have been walking and spending time in forests since I was small and every time it has felt like a magical experience. It is not only the trees, the landscape, the flowers, vegetation or birds. But a walk in the forest is a portion of health & immunity nobody can otherwise offer you – and it is for free. Cut a forest and you cut your own health. Stay true to yourself and grateful to your home land that welcomed your first steps just like any other lands where you have lived so far and respect Nature – it will give you back much more than respect, it will give you back infinite benefits and the promise of a true and eternal friend.

A few more photos connected to any of the two subjects of my little story here – I truly hope you can find some favourites or that many of these can make your day better and your life more meaningful.

Stay healthy, faithful to your hearts and stay away from anything that is fake and badly-targeted; escape this foggy & chaotic atmosphere by using your wisdom in order to benefit from your many qualities as many years as possible, in health and happiness. See you soon hopefully with other good ideas or stories 🙂
