These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

As Charles Darwin described in his study about the existence and nature of emotions as expressed both by humans and animals, emotions are a natural part of the living creatures. Although there might be some slight differences between emotions of animals and humans, yet, they are quite similar. Both of these creatures have distinguished emotional patterns like anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, and even surprise. With that, it is not far from reality that animals when they become parents, also become loving towards their babies. They express similar emotions and at the same time do similar things as the humans do to give whatever their babies need. This is also one way to show that they care for their young.

Here are some of the most touching photos of newborn animals in the wild which clearly express that animals, too, can show how tender and caring they are as mothers and fathers to their babies. Let these photos inspire you and show you how precious life is.

1. Mother monkey gets Caesarian

Painful as it sounds, but yes, the mother monkey just got her Caesarian to give birth to her baby monkey. This is quite a maternal sacrifice!

    2. The Canada goslings follow their mama goose

    Really cute! These goslings are following their mother goose in search for food. While doing so, they swim together in line (to avoid being lost).

      3. The Capybara swims with her newborn

      One of the cutest feature of a Capybara is that they really are persistent in terms of teaching some values to their young. You can see this in this picture of these baby Capybaras learning to swim together with their mom.

          Obedience is one of the keys to life’s success. In order for this baby hippo to learn the basics of life, he needs to obey what his mom asks him to do. As seen in this photo, this baby follows wherever his mom will go.

                  Life is harsh. Well, it is. Just like this baby crocodile, when it was hatched, his mom’s presence is absent. Although life sucks, still life should go on and be lived.

                                                              30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                                                              30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

                                                              In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

                                                              1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

                                                              Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

                                                              2. Focus on your breath

                                                              Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

                                                              3. Get organized and purge old items

                                                              A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

                                                              4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

                                                              Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

                                                              5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

                                                              Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

                                                              Advertising

                                                              6. Smile more

                                                              Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

                                                              7. Don’t worry about the future

                                                              As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

                                                              8. Eat real food

                                                              The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

                                                              9. Choose being happy over being right

                                                              Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

                                                              10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

                                                              Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

                                                              11. Make use of filtering features on social media

                                                              You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

                                                              12. Get comfortable with silence

                                                              When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

                                                              13. Listen to understand, not to respond

                                                              So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

                                                              14. Put your troubles in a bubble

                                                              Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

                                                              15. Speak more slowly

                                                              Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

                                                              16. Don’t procrastinate

                                                              Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

                                                              17. Buy a coloring book

                                                              Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

                                                              You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

                                                              19. Forgive others

                                                              Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

                                                              20. Check your expectations

                                                              Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

                                                              21. Engage in active play

                                                              Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

                                                              22. Stop criticizing yourself

                                                              The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

                                                              23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

                                                              Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

                                                              Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

                                                              25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

                                                              Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

                                                              26. Manage your money

                                                              Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

                                                              27. Stop trying to control everything

                                                              Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

                                                              28. Practice affirmations

                                                              Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

                                                              29. Get up before sunrise

                                                              Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

                                                              30. Be yourself

                                                              Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
