10 Deeply Moving Life Stories Remind You The Loveliness Of The World

10 Deeply Moving Life Stories Remind You The Loveliness Of The World

With all political changes, wars, and oppression that are going on in the world today, we can easily fall under the influence of negative messages seen every day, and truly think that this is the end of the world. Yet, it all comes down to perspective. Yes, there are terrible things happening to good people, and so much injustice, but what we focus on is ultimately our own choice. If we decide to look at the positive, we would soon witness to so much more love, compassion, help and generosity, since there is so much more of it in this beautiful world we are living in.

Storytelling has always been one of the most effective ways to inspire, soothe, and keep us alive. Sometimes we don’t even need magic stories and fairytales, as real life tells the most beautiful stories that inspire and make us believe in the good in people.

Here, at Lifehack, we decided to celebrate positive examples, kindhearted people, and ideas that bring us together, rather than apart. It is our belief that we all benefit from sharing inspiring stories of great acts of kindness and loveliness that our world is abundant with. Here is a list of 10 real-life deeply moving stories to remind us of the loveliness of the world.

    Cori Salchert and her family run a ‘house of hope’, as they named it, where they nurture and provide care for babies that have been diagnosed with terminal diseases, when their parents can’t take care of them or cannot stand the pain of watching them suffer and pass away. Corey has found her purpose in making the lives of the babies a little bit easier, and making sure they spend each day surrounded by love and care. This heart-warming story has left many of us speechless in the presence of such love, blessing us with hope in humankind at the same time.

      Who can forget the photo of Murtaza Ahmadi, a 5-year-old Afghan boy, who enjoys his favorite game of football wearing a shirt made from a plastic bag with hand written name of his favorite player Lionel Messi on the back? The image of the “saddest football shirt in the world” reached Messi himself, who then arranged to have his two teams’ shirts – Argentina and Barcelona – to be signed and sent to the boy along with a new football. Murtaza wore the shirt with the greatest smile on his face as he was showing his best football moves. This heartwarming story doesn’t end there, as the little boy got to meet his idol at a football game in Qatar, where he showed his love and appreciation for the player by refusing to leave the pitch as the game was about to start.

        Another touching story of human loveliness comes from Fresno, CA, where Lynea Lattanzio found the most beautiful purpose for her 6-acre plot of land – to transform it into a 12-acre cat sanctuary and rescue facility. Now a non-profit organization, it has made sure that no cat is left homeless or loveless.

          Leaving a witty and powerful message on a receipt she covered for the table of homophobic people next to her, Natalie Woods showed that there is another way to fight against prejudice and hostility. After hearing the family sitting near her in a restaurant being “disgusted” about their “liberal, gay” nephew, she decided to act in a rather unexpected way. Instead of accumulating or expressing anger, she sent a powerful message that, unlike any fight, can actually make people question their beliefs. Natalie paid for their meal, and left a note on the receipt saying: “Happy Holidays, from the very gay, very liberal table sitting next to you. Jesus made me this way. … P.S. be accepting of your family.”

            This story about a little girl, Juniper, is real-life proof of the power to bring hope even in the most difficult of times. Born 16 weeks early, the doctors and her family have struggled to keep her alive. The change happened as her father decided to start reading to her about “the boy who lived” – Harry Potter. J.K. Rowling’s magical story brought hope for Juniper’s family, as the girl started getting better and stronger page by page. Juniper is now a healthy and strong 5-year-old who has a special set of Harry Potter books sent directly from her favorite author along with the note: “To Juniper, The girl who lived! With lots of love, J.K. Rowling.”

Whether they are questioning adoption, looking for financial assistance, or they are making other important decisions, they can be assured that their babies are getting all the love and care they need, with all legal rights still granted to them.

                After coming out to her family as transgender, Zoe had to take up another challenge – coming out at work. The reaction she got from her work colleagues is a beautiful example of genuine acceptance and understanding for another human being. She had a party thrown in her honor and received many beautiful gifts, acknowledgements and words of encouragement. Something that should be a lesson to all of us on how to celebrate diversity, instead of condemning it.

                      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                      10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                      Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

                      Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

                      So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

                      Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

                      Video Summary

                      1. It is easier.

                      When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

                      2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

                      Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

                      3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

                      Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

                      4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

                      Advertising

                        If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                        5. It could lead to better sleep.

                        Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                        6. It can help your skin.

                        For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                        7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                        Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                        8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                        Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                        9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                        For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                        10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                          Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                          Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                          Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                          Sleep well with your naked body!

                          With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                          Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
