Sad to see so much trash, it almost makes me emotional. Maybe more so because so few care. It’s not that there isn’t people picking it up, it’s that we consume too much.
 
We don’t consider less waste, we don’t think about passing on a container or bringing our own.
And something as simple as commenting, liking or sharing a post like to raise awareness...we turn away and pretend we aren’t part of the problem or can't positively contribute.
 
This isn’t a far off destination, this is our backyard, this is our home, this is a destination many come to visit, enjoy and leave and don’t think about what we they left behind.
 
On top of that, we don’t consider our children, grandchildren and theirs to come by being conscious of what we’re using, buying and leaving behind.
 
What will come of our paradise? Where we travel, where will we enjoy a getaway and what about the people who call this paradise home?

There is a clear connection between sleep and sugar, unfortunately most people don’t see this connection or don’t realize that sugar is preventing them from getting a restful night sleep.
 
If you look at it as sugar being a stimulant then it might help you understand why have sugar throughout the day and especially at night will keep you up or prevent you from getting into that deep REM sleep.
 
It’s important to pay attention to our daily habits, for example if you’re regularly having sugary drinks and snacks right before bed while you’re watching your favourite netflix series or a movie. 
 
Changing your habits to healthier ones will certainly make a difference.

There really is an Art to Reciprocation. Some may feel like it's common sense, but it's really not. Most people don't reciprocate for many reasons.

Maybe they don't know how, maybe they don't know they aren't. Maybe they don't know they're in a one way relationship and can't figure out why they have issues developing life long friends or why they struggle with co-workers or business relationships.

Reciprocation comes in many forms and it shows up in every day life no matter where you look. My point is, we need to reciprocate. We need to stop only thinking of ourselves and consider how someone else is doing, what they day is like and how we can help improve their day as well as ours. 

Friends, family, intimate relationships, business connections...whatever you're looking to improve when it comes to a relationship, consider reciprocation at the root cause.

We are either reciprocating or we aren't.
