6 Tips for Remaining Childlike Forever

4282486008_2bc67ffe8d_o

    There is an insurmountable beauty in children. They are innocent, untamed, and just the way they are. They have no facade, no pretense, or no shame. They have no apologies, regrets, or evil. They simply do what their hearts say or tell them to do. And as innocent as they are, they do just exactly that.

    All children have is this witty, jovial, and free nature that many of us lack. What if we adults were more like this? Just experiencing life simply on its terms, just letting it be.I feel more adults should act child-like as it keeps their innocent intact, providing them with true happiness, as well as simplicity. It has so many benefits that can provide you with a life long of happiness, tranquility, and composure. So how can you remain childlike forever? Just follow this advice:

    1. Always Act Like a Child

    Celebrate like a kid would. When you are happy, your whole face shows it. Smile whenever you get the chance or opportunity. Life is too short for worries, troubles, and fights. Be the person you were meant to be. Always enjoy the little moments in life. Whenever you will, you will feel like a child at any given opportunity. Children wake up each morning looking forward to the day and see opportunity in everything. For example, when you get off from work because of inclement weather celebrate like there is no tomorrow. Days like this don’t always come so seize the opportunity.

    2. Don’t Let People Tell You “Be More Mature!”

    If others tell you “grow up” or mature, don’t heed acting like your child-like self. You are you not them. Don’t try to be like them either. Be only yourself. Nobody should tell you to start acting more mature because you are who you are for a reason. You are not someone else and can act the way you want, whenever you want. As always, do what your heart tells you. The heart forever remains child-like whether we choose to grow up or not.

    3. Hold On To Innocence

    Always hold on to your innocence, no matter how selfish people may act around you. Innocence can have no price tag placed on it. It is something that is cherished and should be cherished more often. It keeps our bodies, hearts, and minds pure from all of the negativity the world throws at us. It gives us reason to be ourselves, without nagging, criticism, or skepticism.It is something that is so beautiful and pure that cannot be described in mere words. It truly is something that is essential in becoming child-like as all kids are innocent and pure. Cynicism is only something we acquire through life experience.

    4. Laugh often

    Laugh at every opportunity you can get. Life is too short for chances. So, make the most of them and use laughter as the best medicine to act like a child for the rest of your life. Seize every chance you get to laugh till your stomach hurts forever and ever. You will be thankful for laughter is the best medicine. (It also lengthens your life)!

    5. Simplicity is key

    Don’t get caught up in lies, false statements, and clever tricks. Be the person, simple, innocent, child you truly are. Don’t try outwitting people or beating them at various things. Just act in simplicity and you will live a life of laughter. Eventually, these people will get their due but it won’t be because you wasted your time worrying about them.

    6. Stop over-thinking

    When we over-think we needlessly stress out our minds and bodies. Don’t drain your mind of the energy when you will need later on for more important things. Over-thinking only leads to negativity and doubts. It does no one good. Just trust your instincts and never over-think. It just hurts you and the people around you. Kids never over-think. At times, they don’t even think when they should be thinking.

    11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

    11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

    Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

    Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

    1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

    Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

    2. Stress Relief

    Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

    3. Improved Sleep

    Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

    4. Appetite Control

    Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

    5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

    When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

    6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

    Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

    7. Mosquito Repellant

    Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

    8. Pain Relief

    While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

    9. The New Anti-Viral

    Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

    10. Improved Cognitive Function

    Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

    11. Money Saving

    With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
