Inspirational and Motivational Monthly Downloadable & Printable Calendars

If you are looking for a different way to motivate and inspire yourself on a monthly basis, you can see whether monthly downloadable calendars will do the work for you. I have found the monthly calendars recently and am sharing with all. I do like it as each month there is a different theme.

For non-Reiki practitioners and wants general motivation, try this site, Action for Happiness:
https://www.actionforhappiness.org/calendars
Personal remarks: Suitable for all.

I came across “Action for Happiness” website by chance and like the fact that they have monthly motivational calendars plus other interesting things.

For Reiki practitioners and believers, here is the link to the Reiki Rays site:
https://reikirays.com/68595/chillax-reiki-calendar-july-2019/
Personal remarks: This will be more useful for people who have knowledge of Reiki and the terms.

I use both calendars and it just adds more dose of inspiration and motivation to my daily activities.

Look and see whether it can benefit you too…Have an inspiring day! 🙂

Drinking Water from Copper Cups

You will know the benefits of copper vessels if you happen to be in the Yoga and / or Ayurveda line. Alternatively, if you have had Indian traditional upbringing, you will also be aware that drinking water from copper vessels is important.

I spent my younger days with my great grandmother, grandmother and all the elders. In those days (that is in late 1970s), silver ware and copper ware were the most used by Indian families. The elders in my family taught me the benefits of drinking water from copper vessels and eating from either copper or silver wares. Come to think about it right now, those days glass wares were not common and so was plastic wares too. The most common types of plates and utensils were usually made of copper, silver or wood.

As days passed and modernization took place, Pyrex glassware were the trend and so was forgotten the copper and silver wares. Nowadays, I try to make changes to my daily life based on what I learnt in my younger days. One of the many things that my elders taught was to drink water early in the morning out of a copper cup/mug. I re-started with that practice and I should say it rather makes a slight difference to my body systems. Benefits are not major and visible immediately. As with any healthy changes to food and lifestyle, the results will be visible or experienced slowly. The results I experienced was a better “feel” of the inner systems mainly in the digestive system. Other results are not visible to me, but I do believe it does well for my body systems one way or another.

While Indian elders and traditions tells of benefits of drinking water from copper, there are always reports contradicting that. I am not here to debate which theory is correct. I am sharing what I have learnt in my younger days and a practice I am putting back into my life and influencing my family members at the same time too. Moreover, drinking water once in the morning from a copper cup is not much work or something to debate about. It all comes down to how much you believe and trust what has been said (or learnt) or passed down from generations.

2018 Diary / Planner by Orange Circle Studio, Succulents

Purchased the below planner from Amazon.
Best features I love: lightweight, starts from August 2017 and has a monthly features plus weekly. Vibrant colours, with lovely inspirational quotes.

Downside: the monthly planner box might not be big enough to hold many matters. If your handwriting is the big type, you might have a difficult task to keep everything in the box.

Other than, it is a lovely and a good buy. And I have already started planning my August… 🙂
