9 Things That Will Happen When You Have A Salt Lamp At Your Home

9 Things That Will Happen When You Have A Salt Lamp At Your Home

Himalayan salt lamps are becoming extremely popular because not only are they beautiful to look at, they also have amazing health benefits. The simple flick of a switch will have you feeling better physically, mentally and emotionally in no time!

1. Your air will be cleaner

The most obvious benefit to having a Himalayan salt lamp is its incredible ability to filter the air in your home, removing dust, cigarette smoke, pollen and other contaminants in the air.

Himalayan salt lamps help filter the air by attracting water molecules and any foreign particles they are carrying, and absorb it.This is known as hygroscopy. When the lamp is turned on, the heat coming from it releases the water back into the air, but keeps all of the absorbed particles trapped inside the lamp.

2. You’ll have reduced allergy symptoms

Since Himalayan salt lamps filter microscopic particles from the air, including pollen, dust, pet dander, mold and mildew, it can really cut out a lot of allergens from the air, making it the perfect home decor addition to any one suffering from allergies.

Also, the cleaner air will help you stay healthier, and get sick less often.

3. You’ll sleep better

Every molecule is made up of atoms, and every atom is made up of three types of particles: protons (positive charge), electrons (negative charge), and neutrons (no charge). Unfortunately, positive ions in the air can make it difficult for you to sleep. That’s because positive ions have a very negative effect on our bodies, yet positive ions are all around us. Himalayan salt lamps, however, release negative ions which will neutralize the positive ions.

Keeping a Himalayan salt lamp in the bedroom can help you sleep by neutralizing the positive ions and improving the air quality. If you need complete darkness to sleep, just turn on the salt lamp for a few hours during the day and then turn it off before going to bed.

4. You’ll breathe easier

It’s also great for people who have asthma or any difficult breathing. In fact, Himalayan pink salt is really good for clearing your airways, and there are even Himalayan pink salt inhalers, which you can buy online.

5. You’ll have more energy

Positive ions are huge energy drainers. Studies have proven that being outside energizes you because there are a lot more negative ions outside. Since Himalayan salt lamps neutralize positive ions and release negative ions, you will feel a lot more energetic at home, too, when you use one.

6. You’ll have fewer headaches

Himalayan salt lamps help enhance your mood, relax you and improve your blood and oxygen supply to your brain and other organs. This not only improves your concentration, but it also helps you de-stress, gives you more energy throughout the day, and you’ll have less headaches!

7. You’ll be happier

By increasing your blood and oxygen flow to your brain, more serotonin will be released and you’ll also be happier.

Himalayan salt lamps can be purchased on Amazon as a basket of Himalayan salt, or as a block of Himalayan salt on a base.

Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

Why Assuming Positive Intent Is an Amazing Productivity Driver

Assuming positive intent is an important contributor to quality of life.

Most people appreciate the dividends such a mindset produces in the realm of relationships. How can relationships flourish when you don’t assume intentions that may or may not be there? And how their partner can become an easier person to be around as a result of such a shift? Less appreciated in the GTD world, however, is the productivity aspect of this “assume positive intent” perspective.

Most of us are guilty of letting our minds get distracted, our energy sapped, or our harmony compromised by thinking about what others woulda, coulda, shoulda.  How we got wronged by someone else.  How a friend could have been more respectful.  How a family member could have been less selfish.

However, once we evolve to understanding the folly of this mindset, we feel freer and we become more productive professionally due to the minimization of unhelpful, distracting thoughts.

The leap happens when we realize two things:

  1. The self serving benefit from giving others the benefit of the doubt.
  2. The logic inherent in the assumption that others either have many things going on in their lives paving the way for misunderstandings.

Needless to say, this mindset does not mean that we ought to not confront people that are creating havoc in our world.  There are times when we need to call someone out for inflicting harm in our personal lives or the lives of others.

Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of Pepsi, says it best in an interview with Fortune magazine:

My father was an absolutely wonderful human being. From ecent emailhim I learned to always assume positive intent. Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different. When you assume negative intent, you’re angry. If you take away that anger and assume positive intent, you will be amazed. Your emotional quotient goes up because you are no longer almost random in your response. You don’t get defensive. You don’t scream. You are trying to understand and listen because at your basic core you are saying, ‘Maybe they are saying something to me that I’m not hearing.’ So ‘assume positive intent’ has been a huge piece of advice for me.

In business, sometimes in the heat of the moment, people say things. You can either misconstrue what they’re saying and assume they are trying to put you down, or you can say, ‘Wait a minute. Let me really get behind what they are saying to understand whether they’re reacting because they’re hurt, upset, confused, or they don’t understand what it is I’ve asked them to do.’ If you react from a negative perspective – because you didn’t like the way they reacted – then it just becomes two negatives fighting each other. But when you assume positive intent, I think often what happens is the other person says, ‘Hey, wait a minute, maybe I’m wrong in reacting the way I do because this person is really making an effort.

“Assume positive intent” is definitely a top quality of life’s best practice among the people I have met so far. The reasons are obvious. It will make you feel better, your relationships will thrive and it’s an approach more greatly aligned with reality.  But less understood is how such a shift in mindset brings your professional game to a different level.

Not only does such a shift make you more likable to your colleagues, but it also unleashes your talents further through a more focused, less distracted mind.
