Recipe for Life Happiness & Wellness

Earlier last week I spoke about my inability to accept things I can't change. Coping with stress is what I'm always learning to do because if I didn't I wouldn't be able to function or get back to being content and happy. Some people can be upset about something, and just get over it, given time. I'm not one of those people and if you aren't either then you especially need to work through your problems as they come up. Don't let things pile up. That shit builds up into serious hostility, aggression, and a negative chain of events.  I'll go through it like everybody else except I do something about it. I do an array of things when I'm stressed. The first thing I do is: Sleep. I have to fuckin' escape. Ever since I was a kid, if I was in trouble which was quite a lot, I would just go to sleep. Run far from the situation, and rest up. If I had a conflict I face them head on. I'll confront people, settle it, and then go into a deep slumber. It's how I always have dealt with my problems, but as problems gradually became a fact of life, it beat me down at one point, where I became depressed.

Everybody is going through their own crap. For whatever ails your mind, body, or soul, this is the recipe for wellness. Whatever is wrong can be reversed or improved. Western medicine focuses solely on prescriptions. We don't have faith anymore, not in God nor our bodies, or ourselves. If something is wrong with us, in a fit of desperation we run online to find a product that will miraculously cure us. I'm guilty of it myself. After going through bouts of hair loss steadily for almost a full year, I spent hours and hours reading and learning about different products and what people said about it. Products do help, I'm not saying they don't, but we need find a middle ground where we believe in ourselves and nurture our bodies. We should take good care of ourselves, the way we would nurture our children keeping a keen eye to when is nap time and when the next feeding is. We know when they need to be mentally stimulated and when they need to
be held, given tough love, etc.

Now in hindsight being past that phase for now, I realized that you can buy any bottle promising happiness and success but it's all an illusion. You've got to fix anything wrong from the source. No matter what's wrong with you, no matter what happens in your life. This is the recipe to Wellness and Recovery... To Life and Happiness .

Overall Wellness Recipe

  1. Nutrition- cut out everything that comes from a drive-thru window, cardboard box, and eat only wholesome foods. If there's an ingredient you can't pronounce or recognize, you shouldn't eat it, like some shit that says azodicarbonamide. Seek out only single ingredient foods/home-cooked meals. Alkalize your diet. Seek out a naturopath if you feel that you may have allergies
  2. Sleep- 8-9 hours every night on schedule 
  3. Reduction of Stress- remove yourself from toxic people/situations, re-examine your surroundings at home/city, move closer to your job, take up yoga, hot baths, massages, laughter, whatever to get you in a de-stressed state. Talk about your problems, seek out support, and ask for help. 
  4. Exercise- 30 mins a day 3-5 times a week. Do what you can to the best of your ability, nobody's asking you to freakin' train for a triathlon. Get those endorphins going so you can feel really good. 


  1. Pray every chance you get.
  2. Take action, precisely in the above order. 
  3. Be consistent 
  4. Be patient
  5. Love yourself, be grateful for every moment. Do the things you really love. I do, and it works wonders. 

Whatever is going on starts with you.
