What Air Conditioning Does to Your Body


Affects Indoor Air

Symptoms include headaches, dry cough, dizziness and nausea, trouble concentrating, fatigue, and sensitivity to odors.

If you work in an air-conditioned building with poor ventilation, it can raise your risk of “sick building syndrome.” Symptoms include headaches, dry cough, dizziness and nausea, trouble concentrating, fatigue, and sensitivity to odors. Forced indoor air may also slightly raise your risk of COVID-19. But the CDC says the risk is small. Lower it even more with regular filter changes, opening windows, and covering coughs and sneezes.

Dehydrates You

Air conditioners suck moisture out of a room to bring down the humidity and cool it off.

Air conditioners suck moisture out of a room to bring down the humidity and cool it off. This can pull water from your skin, drying it -- and you -- out.

Dries Out Eyes

The lack of humidity in air-conditioned spaces can dry your eyes.

The lack of humidity in air-conditioned spaces can dry your eyes. This can make them irritated and itchy and may even make your vision blurry.

Boosts Metabolism

Studies show more time in cold weather may help you lose weight.

Studies show more time in cold weather may help you lose weight. Your body may develop a greater amount of healthy, energy-burning “brown fat” as it deals with more frigid air. Air conditioning in hot weather can help keep you in a cool state, but you’ll also have to lower your indoor temps in the winter to see a real benefit.

Helps You Think

A 2018 Harvard study showed that students who lived in dorms without A/C during hot summer months did worse on cognitive tests than those who had cool central air.

Irritates Airways

Studies show that people who work in air-conditioned buildings have more respiratory problems (irritated nasal passages, trouble breathing) than people who work in buildings with natural ventilation.

Can Make Your Head Ache

If you spend time in indoor spaces with HVAC systems that are dirty or not well-maintained, you’re more likely to have headaches or even migraines.

If you spend time in indoor spaces with HVAC systems that are dirty or not well-maintained, you’re more likely to have headaches or even migraines. In one study, 8% of people who work in unhealthy indoor air environments had headaches 1-3 days a month, and 8% had daily headaches.

Lowers Your Heat Tolerance

Your ideal temperature depends in part on whatever temperature you’ve recently been exposed to.

Scientists have coined the term “adaptive comfort model” to describe why spending more time in air conditioning makes it harder to deal with hot temperatures. Your ideal temperature depends in part on whatever temperature you’ve recently been exposed to. The more you hang out in spaces pumped full of A/C, the less comfortable heat and humidity will feel.

Pollutes the Outside Air

Older A/C units can release CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). This is a refrigerant that can harm the ozone layer, heating up the Earth. The U.S. Clean Air Act began phasing these coolants out in the '90s, but there are still many in use across the globe.

Ramps Up Allergies

If you keep your A/C clean, it can help tame allergies.

If you keep your A/C clean, it can help tame allergies. But an HVAC system can quickly become a home for microbial allergens. Be sure you have your system inspected regularly and keep it well-maintained so you don’t add to your allergy issues.

Helps You Sleep

Experts say sleeping in a room that’s between 60-67 degrees is ideal for the best rest.

Experts say sleeping in a room that’s between 60-67 degrees is ideal for the best rest. This is because your body cools down as part of a natural sleep cycle, so a cool room helps that happen. Sometimes A/C is the tool you need to get your sleep space to the right temp.

Saves Lives During Heatwaves

Air conditioning may come with some negative effects, but there’s no doubt it can be lifesaving when temperatures soar.

Air conditioning may come with some negative effects, but there’s no doubt it can be lifesaving when temperatures soar. Once your body temperature goes above 102 degrees, you’re at risk of heat exhaustion -- nausea, cramps, dizziness, feeling faint -- and if you continue to heat up, you could get heat stroke.





Big Steps On Life's Path

There is a freedom that comes with awareness, because with it comes the opportunity to make a choice.

Life is a journey comprised of many steps on our personal path that takes us down a winding road of constant evolution.

And each day, we are provided with a myriad of opportunities that can allow us to transform into our next best selves.


One moment we are presented with an opportunity to react differently when yet another someone in our life rubs us the wrong way; on another day we may find ourselves wanting to walk away from a particular circumstance but are not sure if we can.


Eventually, we may find ourselves stuck in a rut that we can never seem to get out of.

We may even make the same choices over and over again because we don't know how to choose otherwise.

Rather than moving us forward, our personal paths may take us in a seemingly never-ending circle where our actions and choices lead us nowhere but to where we've already been.

It is during these moments that awareness can be the first step to change. 

Awareness is when we are able to realize what we are doing. 

We observe ourselves, noticing our reactions, actions, and choices as if we were detached viewers.


Awareness is the first step to change because we can't make a change unless we are aware that one needs to be made in the first place.

We can then begin understanding why we are doing what we are doing.

Afterward, it becomes difficult not to change because we are no longer asleep to the truth behind our behaviors.

We also begin to realize that, just as much as we are the root source behind the causes for our behaviors, we are also the originator of any changes that we want to happen. 

There is the freedom that comes with awareness.

Rather than thinking that we are stuck in a repetitive cycle where there is no escape, we begin to see that we very much play a hand in creating our lives.

Whether we are aware of them or not, our behaviors and choices are always ours to make.


Our past and our present no longer have to dictate our future when we choose to be aware.

We are then free to move beyond our old limits, make new choices, and take new actions.

With awareness, our paths can't help but wind us forward in our lives while paving the way for new experiences and new ways of being.

It is through awareness that we can continue to consciously evolve.

How to Live with Certainty in Uncertain Times

Spiritual teacher Deepak Chopra reveals how to live more confidently.
By Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra

What makes a relationship right, or an important decision?

How can you tell if deep spiritual questions have an answer?

As children, we all asked these questions.

They came naturally.

Is there a God?

Do I have a soul?

What happens after I die?


Children are too young to understand that their parents are just as confused as they are.

But the answers are given, and for a time they suffice.

If Grandma went to heaven to be with Grandpa, a child will sleep better and feel less sad.

When you grow up, however, the same questions return.


You can postpone the deeper ones, perhaps, but not in matters of love, relationships, and personal decisions.


Everyone wants to know the answers to those kinds of dilemmas.

And thus you discover that your parents, however well-intentioned, never showed you the way (unless you happen to be one child in a million who had very mature parents who could truly love and understand you).

I know I seem to be painting a very large, open-ended picture. But getting into a healthy relationship, discovering whether you have a soul and even picking the right job have something in common.

In all these cases you either hope, believe or know what the answer is. "I hope he loves me enough." "I believe my spouse is faithful." "I know this marriage is solid."

These are very different statements, and we find ourselves awash in confusion because "I hope," "I believe" and "I know" are never the same thing. We just wish they were.

If you will indulge me in sounding so abstract, there's a useful lesson here.

The spiritual path actually has only these three elements.

You move from a state of uncertainty—"I hope?"—to a somewhat firmer state of security—"I believe"—and eventually end up with true understanding—"I know."

It doesn't matter whether the specific issue is about relationships, God or the soul, about the higher self, heaven, or the far reaches of the supernatural. Either you hope, you believe or you know.

You have already made that journey—many times, in fact.

As a child, you hoped you would be a grown-up. In your 20s, you believed that it was possible.

Now you know you are an adult.

You hoped someone would love you; you believed in time that somebody did, and now you know that they do. If this natural progression hasn't happened, something has gone wrong, because the unfoldment of life is designed to follow from wish to fulfillment.

Of course, we all know the pitfalls.

Divorce generally means you didn't know if someone truly loved you.

Children who grow up resenting their parents usually don't know who to trust.

A hundred other examples could be offered.

But the important thing is to get you back on the path.

Step 1: Realize that your life is meant to progress.

Step 2: Reflect on how good it is to truly know something rather than just hoping and believing. Don't settle for less.

Step 3: Write down, on three separate lists, the things you hope are true, the things you believe are true and the things you know are true.

Step 4: Ask yourself why you know the things you know.

Step 5: Apply what you know to those areas where you have doubts, where only hope and belief exist today.

I believe that when you truly know something, the following things pertain:

You didn't accept other people's opinions.

You found out on your own.

You didn't give up too soon.

You kept exploring despite blind alleys and false starts.

You trusted that you have the power, determination, and curiosity to find out the real truth.

Half-truths left you dissatisfied.

What you truly know grew from the inside.

It made you a different person, as different as two people, one of whom has deeply loved and the other hasn't.

You trusted the process of personal growth.

You aren't afraid of your emotions.

The truth always feels a certain way; uncertainty is queasy and gives off a bad smell.

You went beyond logic into those areas where intuition, insight, and wisdom actually count.

They became real for you.

I would say that these elements are universal.

They apply to the Buddha but also any young person learning how to be in a relationship or finding the right purpose in life.


By dividing the project into its components, the huge questions about life, love, God, and the soul become manageable.

You can work on each ingredient at a time.


Are you prone to accepting secondhand opinions?

Do you have a habit of distrusting your own decisions?

Is love too painful and confusing to explore deeply?


These aren't impossible obstacles.

They are part of you, and therefore nothing can be nearer or more intimate.

Moving from "I hope" to "I believe" to "I know" is nothing less than the journey of life. You don't have to buy a ticket.


You were born with one in your hand.

12 “Notes to Self” You Should Memorize Before the New Year Begins

Written by

12 Notes to Self You Should Memorize Before the New Year


As 2020 winds down, I know many of us are yearning for a very small and selective range of life experiences—the happy holidays, the normal times, the settings and experiences that make us feel comfortable.

And yet, the full range of our present reality is quite different.

This year continues to give us an extensive array of experiences that evoke feelings ranging from sadness to struggle to pride to anger to love to loneliness… happiness to hope and more.

These feelings are all part of being a living, breathing human being, regardless of the season of our lives.


So, we can revolt against the unfairness of life—the unfairness of having to deal with pain, having to cope with uncertainty, having to feel lonely and uneasy and upset.

Or we can embrace every experience life gives us, including all our highs and lows—all the blissful moments and painful ones and everything in between.

Life is not just happy and comfortable 24/7. It’s well-rounded, it’s full-featured, and it’s real.


Embracing the full range of life’s experiences this holiday season means embracing every moment with our full presence, being open and vulnerable to reality, being gentle with ourselves when moments are tougher than we expected, and practicing sincere gratitude no matter what happens.

It means accepting life as it is, and accepting ourselves as we are.


It means not expecting the best to happen every step of the way, but instead accepting what happens with each step, and making the very best of it.


This isn’t easy of course, but it’s worth working on, together.


Making Progress into 2021


Yes, the New Year is rapidly approaching.

Let’s make a pact to enter it with a more open, accepting, and resilient collective mindset.




By committing the right ideas and intentions to memory.


Over the past decade, Angel and I have written various “notes to self” like the ones I’ve listed below (all of which are now excerpts from our books), and then we’ve read and re-read them until they became ingrained in our minds.


These memorized “notes to self” help us stay on track, by empowering us to make the best and most effective use of the ever-changing reality in front of us.


We’ve passed these notes on to our course students and live seminar attendees over the years, and many of them have thanked us for doing so. 

I hope YOU find value in them today, too. 

And I challenge you to memorize at least a couple of them before the New Year. (Note: For the sake of not being tediously redundant, I only wrote “Note to Self” as a precursor on the first note below.)



Note to Self: Happiness is letting go of what you assume your life is supposed to be like right now, and sincerely appreciating it for everything that it is. So, RELAX. You are enough. You have enough. You do enough. Breathe deep... let go, and just live right now in the moment.


Learning to ignore certain people and things is one of the great paths to inner peace. Once you begin to value your inner peace over your need to react and be right, you will in fact experience more inner peace, and happiness.


When things aren't adding up in your life, begin subtracting. Life gets a lot simpler when you clear the clutter that makes it complicated. It’s all about focus. What you pay attention to grows. So focus on what matters and let go of what does not.


Do your best to take a deep breath, and another. Remind yourself that the strongest sign of your growth is knowing you're no longer stressed by the trivial things that once used to drain you.


You can’t control how other people behave. You can’t control everything that happens to you. What you can control is how you respond to it all. In your response is your power.


The trick is to enjoy life. Don’t wish away all your days waiting for better ones ahead. Just appreciate where you are right now. You've come a long way, and you're still learning and growing. Be thankful for the lessons. Take them and make the very best of things today.


Forgive yourself for the bad decisions you made, for the times you lacked understanding, for the choices that hurt others & yourself. Forgive yourself, for being young & reckless. These are all vital lessons. And what matters most right now is your willingness to grow from them.


Everything gets a bit uncomfortable when it's time to change. That's just a part of the growth process. With effort, things will gradually get better. Be patient and remind yourself: Life never gets easier, you just get stronger.


If you don’t allow yourself to move past what happened, what was said, what was felt, you will look at your present & future through that same dirty lens, & nothing will be able to focus your foggy judgment. Realize this. What you do now matters more than what happened yesterday.


Impress yourself. Show yourself that you can grow and get better. It's never about competing with anyone else. In the end, it's just you vs. you.


You need to do hard things to be happy in life. Because the hard things ultimately build you up and change your life. They make the difference between existing and living, between knowing the path and walking it, between a lifetime of empty promises and one filled with progress.


If you wait until you feel 100% ready, you will be waiting the rest of your life. Realize this! Some people wait all day for 5pm, all week for Friday, all year for the holidays, all their lives for happiness. Don't be one of them.

Cheers to a New Beginning


Although none of the aforementioned “notes to self” immediately force you to do anything different, they represent a timely shift in perspective, and perspective is where peace and happiness begin.


From there, you can change your posture from one of tension and resistance to one of acceptance and opportunity.


Ultimately, the goal isn’t to get rid of all your negative thoughts, feelings, or life situations as you journey into 2021. The goal is to change your response to them.


The days, weeks, and months ahead—both before and after the New Year—will be filled with incredible highs and stressful lows, for all of us.

But in any case, we can train our minds to make the best of the present moment as it unfolds. Just take it one “note” at a time, and please know that if you’re struggling with any of this, you are not alone.


Many of us are right there with you, working hard to feel better, think more clearly, and keep our lives on track. This is precisely why Angel and I wrote our books and built our course.


These invaluable resources are filled with proven guidance on how to do just that. And believe it or not, Angel and I review a lot of our own material on a regular basis too, just to center our minds on these proven principles.



Creating Connections While Apart

If you are apart from your family, you can decide upon a reminder together, and create a simple ceremony of connection that defies any distance.

Life's journeys may sometimes take us away from our families and friends, but there are many ways to stay connected. Aside from making use of the technology available--speaking on the phone or seeing each other from across cyberspace--we can create simple ceremonies using nature and our own thoughts to connect our hearts across the miles.

The first step in creating your ceremony is to look to nature for similarities in the different surroundings. The second step is agreeing upon something that is meaningful to all involved. If your mother loves birds, then perhaps each time you hear a bird chirp, you can think of her and mentally send love. You may choose the sight of a butterfly, the feel of a breeze or raindrops, or the scent of flowers to remind you of a special someone. The pink glow of sunset might be your favorite time to send a thought, or perhaps the warming oranges of sunrise. We can all see the sun, the moon, and an array of twinkling stars when we look to the skies. The monthly full moon may be your time to connect with your loved ones, or the first star you see each night, knowing that they, too, are gazing into the night sky and sending love. You could choose a day that you would usually celebrate together, such as a holiday or a solstice. If you once shared Sunday brunches in the garden, you can each seek out a garden on Sundays. Or you can choose a specific time and account for the time difference in order to connect by heart and mind at exactly the same moment.

With practice, we may learn to recognize the feeling that comes when a loved one sends energy our way, and the feeling of soul-to-soul communication. In this case, distance may indeed make our connections stronger. There is certainly much to make us think of our close friends and loved ones often, but when we decide upon a reminder together, we create a simple ceremony of connection that defies any distance.




Experience The Story of STUFF and our Environment


Making Change Together






Leaving the Earth a Better Place

by Madisyn Taylor

It is a great act of love to leave the earth a better place when we leave, than when we found her.

We inherit this great planet from our parents and from the generations that came before.

Then, in concert with the surrounding culture, our elders teach us how to care for the land and the sea, ourselves, and each other.


They model ways of being in relationship with every other expression of life on earth. But whether they act with care or carelessness, compassion or cruelty, generosity or greed, we have the ability to choose our own individual way of relating with the planet and its inhabitants.

From our first breath here to our very last, we will find infinite opportunities to influence our environment for the better.

We can decide now to act with intention in order to leave this amazing planet brighter and more beautiful than when we arrived.

If we enjoy environmental activism, we might feel moved to clean up beaches or plant trees.

But, we need not feel limited in our ability to contribute positively.

There are many ways to leave a legacy of love.

We might begin by radiating affirmative thoughts and feelings about how magnificent the earth truly is.

We might create and tend a special garden, one that provides an abundance of food and herbs for ourselves and our loved ones.

Or we might create a garden filled with sweet-smelling flowers to uplift our hearts.

We might even honor the earth simply by trying to be the best person we can be while we are here.

Such goodwill can have a domino effect, inspiring others to contribute in their own way as well.

We spend our lifetimes being nourished and enlivened by the rain, sun, soil, and wind.


Our experience is blessed by other living beings, from plants to insects to birds and humans.

We receive so much; giving back just naturally feels good.

When we live our lives with intention of leaving this temporary home a better place for generations to come, we are perhaps leaving behind the best gift of all.

52 Morning Meditations for a Peaceful, Productive Year

52 Good Morning Mantras (That Will Change Your Life)

“What day is it?” asked Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.


Here are 52 morning mantras – one for each week of the year (note: you can start your year of morning mantras anytime you want).  I choose one of these mantras every Monday morning and sit quietly for two minutes, repeating it silently in my mind as if I were meditating.  I also write it on a post-it note and stick it next to my computer monitor for the duration of the week.  This weekly ritual has helped reduce unnecessary stress in my life by reminding me to keep things simple, peaceful and in perspective.


  1. The secret to being grateful is no secret.  You choose to be grateful.  Then you do it again and again.  Every day.  When you forget, begin again.
  2. If you worry too much about what might be, and wonder too long about what might have been, you will ignore and completely miss what is.
  3. You don’t know what the future will bring.  So your best strategy for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present.
  4. Two things, more than anything else, define you daily: Your patience when you are struggling, and your attitude when you are not.          Read More on the web page.

21 Precepts to Live Your Life


Editor’s note: These 21 precepts were just as Miyamoto was giving away all his possessions in preparation for death and I think many of them still apply to our modern society and lifestyles and hence I’m sharing them there.


Accept who you are, know your strengths and weaknesses, don’t over qualify yourself to the world but definitely don’t under estimate your potential. The world and everything in it is truly amazing, see it, explore, make the most of everything; take nothing for granted.
