What Happens in Heaven.

"In the name of God who is unique and if you try to count the blessings of him you will fail"I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around.We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received."I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so manyangels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets andscraps from people all over the world.Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed anddelivered to the living persons who asked for them."I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels workinghard at that station, since so many blessings had been requestedand were being packaged for delivery to Earth.Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door ofa very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there,idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section," my angel friendquietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed"How is it that there is no work going on here?" I asked."So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings thatthey asked for, very few send back acknowledgments .""How does one acknowledge God's blessings?" I asked."Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord.""What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked."If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roofoverhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world."If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy .""And if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity.""Also ......" If you woke up this morning with more health than illness... you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day""If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the lonelinessof imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of are ahead of 700 million people in the world.""If you can attend a holy place without the fear of harassment, arrest,torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world .""If your parents are still alive and still married are very rare .""If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair."Ok, what now? How can I start?If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in thatsomeone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessedthan over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.Have a good day, count your blessings, and if you want, pass this along toremind everyone else how blessed we all are."
ATTN:Acknowledge Dept.: "Thank you Lord, for giving me the abilityto share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people to share it with."

Today is a gift

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.His bed was next to the room’s only window.The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.The men talked for hours on end.They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words..Days, weeks and months passed.One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed. It faced a blank wall.The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’
Moral of the story:There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Grief when shared halves the sorrow, but happiness when shared, doubles the joy.If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.‘Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .’The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings a joy for everyone who reads it.

9 Common ZYM Mistakes

Exercise Mistake #1: Too much socializing, not enough exercising.
“I see a lot of individuals talking with each other in the gym,” says Scott Lucett, director of education for the National Academy of Sports Medicine and a certified personal trainer for more than 15 years. “Next thing they know, an hour has passed and the amount of time they have actually spent exercising is relatively low.” So focus on your workout -- and save the chit-chat for the juice bar.
Exercise Mistake #2: Lack of intensity.
Do you see your gym time as the perfect way to catch up on your reading? Are you leaning on the machines? Lots of people are just going through the motions, even though they may look like they’re working out. “They think that as long as they’re moving, they’re going to lose weight,” Lucett says. “But if the intensity is not at the level that it needs to be at, it’s almost a waste of time.”
In addition to increasing your intensity levels, Peterson also recommends working out for longer periods of time, increasing weights and distance, cross-training, working out on an incline, and maximizing your body weight while working out, by using a weighted vest or ankle weights, for example.
Exercise Mistake #3: Always training in the 'fat burning' heart rate zone.
You’ve seen those charts on the cardiovascular machines that list “zones.” But in the so-called “fat-burning zone,” your training intensity isn’t very high -- usually 65%-70% of your heart rate. Research, however, has shown that the higher the intensity, the more calories you burn -- not only while exercising, but after you leave the gym, when your body benefits from an “after-burn” mode.
“It’s as if you turn off your car engine, but the hood is still warm,” Lucett says. “The same thing happens with the body. You need to make sure that your intensity is higher than that chart.” Unable to work out that hard? Work your way up.
Exercise Mistake #4: Over estimating caloric expenditure.
Don’t let the number on the screen of your cardio machine fool you, either. “That’s a very general number and there are a lot of variables that play into that,” Lucett says. “The machine may say that you’ve expended 500 calories, but you could only be burning 250.”
This can be especially true when you do things to “trick” the machine, like leaning on the bars. Unbeknownst to that computer, which relies on speed and revolutions to calculate calories, you’re offsetting your weight, which means you are significantly decreasing the amount of work you’re doing.
Exercise Mistake #5: Not progressing/changing your program.
When you do the same workout over and over again, the body has no reason to change. “You’ll see an initial loss, but eventually you’ll get to a point of diminishing returns,” Lucett says.
Another challenge, Peterson says, is getting away from the machines and routines that you feel most comfortable with.
“You like the feeling of aerobic exercise, so you don’t do what it takes to maintain your muscle mass, which is the body tissue that burns calories -- the furnace,” he says. “Or you do only strength training, which maintains muscle mass, but you don’t lose weight." Those little string-bean guys who run marathons? They often don’t do anything to ensure the success of the process by, say, engaging in strength training. You have to have a mix.
Exercise Mistake #6: Spot reduction training.
Those articles that guarantee you can lose fat from your abs or glutes? Forget ‘em, say the experts. “People need to understand that genetics is the primary factor in determining where that body fat comes from,” Lucett says. “Your body is going to take fat from anywhere it wants.” The answer? Just focus on burning calories through a well-balanced training program. You’ll eventually lose the weight from all areas of your body.
Exercise Mistake #7: Improper exercise technique.
When you don’t know how to use a machine or perform an exercise properly, you can easily confuse mechanical inefficiency with caloric burn, Peterson says. Doing an exercise wrong can also lead to injury. “If you get injured, you can’t work out,” Lucett says. “And, if you can’t work out, you won’t be burning calories in the gym.”
The challenge, of course, is knowing when you’re doing something wrong -- especially if you’re relying on techniques from “back in the day.” Exercise science has evolved tremendously in the past few decades, and so have weight machines. So get an experienced gym employee to do the rounds with you, or consider hiring a personal trainer for a session or two (see tip #9).
Exercise Mistake #8:Doing too much too soon.
In addition to injuring yourself, if you jump into an exercise program too soon, you can become overly sore. Being sore isn’t bad; it’s actually your body’s way of telling you that it’s building muscle. But working out too hard, especially early on, can have a detrimental effect on your motivation.
Another symptom of overtraining is fatigue, which will impact the amount of activity you do the rest of the day. “You’re not burning a lot of calories in the gym. Most of your calories are expended throughout the other 23 hours,” he says. “It’s vital to make sure that what you’re doing during that hour translates into increased caloric expenditure the rest of the day.” The solution? Make sure you get a personalized program to help with your workout. Many gyms now have a computer that will do just this. If not, someone on staff will be able to help. Many people don’t realize it, but periodic one-on-one sessions are often included with those membership fees. Be sure to ask.
Exercise Mistake #9: Not working with a professional who is certified by an accredited organization.
A professional will also make sure that you don’t fall prey to any of these traps. “A personal trainer is your insurance policy to make sure you get the maximum efficiency out of your efforts,” Peterson says.
So whether it’s a certified personal trainer or an experienced gym employee, consider working with someone to customize your training regimen. He or she will take the guesswork out of the equation, create a personalized plan tailored to your specific needs, make sure you’re doing your workout correctly and even give you tips on proper diet - an even bigger piece of the weight loss puzzle. If you stick with it, you’ll finally start to see those pounds disappear.

7 Don'ts after a meal.

1) Don't drink tea - Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the Protein content in the food we consume to be hardened thus difficult to digest.

2) Don't eat fruits immediately - Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Therefore take fruit 1-2 hr after meal or 1hr before meal.

3) Don't loosen your belt - Loosening the belt after a meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted & blocked.

4) Don't bathe - Bathing will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs & body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease. This will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

5) Don't walk about - People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In actual fact this is not true. Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

6) Don't sleep immediately - The food we intake will not be able to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric & infection in our intestine.

7) Don't smoke- Experiment from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher).


Once upon a time a Washer man was bringing up two donkeys.
Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B.
Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the other. It always tried to pull the washer man's attraction over it by taking more load and walking fast in front of him.
Innocent Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, irrespective of the washer man's presence. After a period of time, Washer man started pressurizing Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to walk fast & got continuous punishment from washer man. It was crying and told personally to Donkey-A "Dear friend, only we two are here, why to compete with each other....we can carry equal load at normal speed ".
That made Donkey-A all the more energetic and next day it told to washer man that it can carry more load and even it can run fast also. Obviously happier washer man looked at Donkey-B.., his BP raised and he started kicking Donkey-B.
Next day with smile, Donkey-A carried more load and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for Donkey-B and it couldn't act that way....But the washer man was frustrated, so he harassed Donkey-B terribly, and finally it fell down hopelessly.
Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supreme and happily started carrying more load with great speed. But now the Load of the Donkey-B is also being carried by Donkey-A., and still it has to run fast. For some period it did, finally due to fatigue it got tired and started feeling the pain. But washer man expected more from Donkey-A. It also tried best, but couldn't cope up with his owners demand. The Washer man got angry with Donkey-A also and started harassing to take more load... Donkey-A was crying for long time and then tried its best... But it couldn't meet the owner's satisfaction.

Finally the day came when due to frustration the washer man killed Donkey-A and went for searching some other Donkeys.
It’s an endless story..........

But the moral of the Story in Corporate and social life is......,
"Think all colleagues are same and that everyone is capable.... Always Share the Load equally..... Don't ever act smart in front of your Boss and never try for getting over-credit...

Don't feel happy when ur colleague is under pressure.."
It doesn't matter if u r A or B, for the Boss u shall be always DONKEY.
And most importantly, Never Work Hard, Work Cleverly.....

Calculating your Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) = 220 – Your Age.
For a 20 years old person = 220 – 20 = 200 Beats per minute.
For a 60 years old person = 220 – 60 = 160 Beats per minute.

Intensity of Exercise:-
Scientifically exercise intensity can be calculated based on the Heart Rate. The fitness benefit of an exercise can be related to its intensity. 70% MHR is the general training threshold, in the sense that those who exercise at Heart Rate less than 70% MHR generally do not improve the heart fitness.

Calculating Target Heart Rate:-
Fat Burning Exercises ------ 60% - 70% of Maximum Heart Rate.
Cardio Exercises ------------ 70% - 80% of Maximum Heart Rate.

A comprehensive physical activity should include following three kinds of activities.
1) Aerobic Exercises.
2) Strength Training Exercises.
3) Flexibility Exercises.

Aerobic Exercises:-
Are any repetitive, continuous motion, such as walking, jogging, swimming, cycling, jumping or aerobic dancing. They will improve the efficiency of your Heart and Lungs. For best results aim to exercise at 70% - 80% of your Maximum Heart Rate, at least 20 Minutes a day for 6 days a week.

Strength Training Exercises:-
Are short term and emphasize building muscle, rather than burning oxygen. Examples include weight lifting, power lifting, sit-ups, push-ups etc. Done several times a week helps building strong bones and muscles and makes everyday chores easier for you. With more muscle, you burn more calories, even at rest.

Flexibility Exercises:-
Also called stretching, help keep your joints flexible and reduce your chances of injury during other activities. Gentle stretching for 10 to 15 minutes a day for 6 days a week helps your body warm up and get ready for aerobic activity.

It is useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on how tall a person is.

BMI = Weight in Kgs / Height in Cms/ Height in Cms X 10,000.

For a person weighing 74 Kgs and Height 5Ft 9 Inches (175Cms)

BMI = 74 / 175 / 175 X 10,000 = 24.16

He is in Normal Range.

BMI Weight Status
Less than 14.9 ----- Starvation.
15 – 18.4 ------------ Under Weight.
18.5 – 24.9 ---------- Normal.
25.0 – 29.9 ---------- Overweight.
30.0 -- 40.0 ---------- Obese.
More than 40.0 ---- Morbidly Obese.

Some of the Benefits of Exercise:-
Physical exercise is the best tension reliever. It is important remedy for stress. Nothing eases stress more than exercise. Mentally, exercise provides an outlet for negative emotions such as frustration, anger, irritability, thereby promoting a more positive mood and outlook. Exercise, will keep your body functioning properly and will keep you feel both relaxed, refreshed and promote deep, restful sleep.
Begin an exercise that you enjoy. The value of such exercise, three to five times a week for 30 minutes to two hours, can not be over emphasized.

Who our best friend is.

I hope you'll be blessed with this as I was.Somewhere in Milaor, Camarines Sur, there lived a fourth grader boy who would follow this route to school everyday: He has to cross the rugged plains and cross the dangerous highway where vehicles are recklessly driving to and fro. Once past this highway, the boy would take a shortcut, passing by the Church every morning just to say Hi to God, and faithfully say his, "Magandang umaga po" in Bicol dialect. He was faithfully being watched by a Priest who was happy to find innocence soup lifting in the morning, "Kamusta, Andoy? Papasok ka na?" "Opo padre... "he would flash his innocent grin, the priest would be touched. He was so concerned that one day he talked to Andoy. "From school...", he advised "Do not cross the highway, you can pass through the Church and Ican accompany you to the other side of the road...that way I can see that you are home safe...." "Thank you father..." "Why don't you go home ... why do you stay in this church rightafter school?" "I just want to say 'Hi' to my friend, God," and the priest would leave the boy to spend time beside the altar, talking to himself, but the priest was hiding behind the altar to listen to what this boy had to say to his heavenly FATHER."You know my math exam was pretty bad today, but I did not cheat although my seatmate is bullying me for notes... I ate one cracker and drank my water, Itay had a bad season and all I can eat is this cracker. Thank you for this! I saw a poor kitten that was hungry and I know how he feels so I gave my last cracker to him ... funny but I am not that hungry. Look, this is my last pair of slippers ...I may have to walk barefoot next week, you see this is about to be broken... but it is least I am still going to school.... Some say we will have a hard season this month, some of my classmates have already stopped going to school ....please help them get to school again, please God?...Oh, you know, Inay hit me again, it is painful, but I know this pain will pass away, at least I still have a mother.... God, you want to see my bruises? I know you can heal them.... Here... here and ....oh...blood...I guess you knew about this one huh? Please don't be mad at Inay, she is just tired and she worries for the food in our table and my schooling that is why she hits us....Oh, I think I am in love ...there's this pretty girl in my class, her name is Anita ... do you think she will like me? Anyway, at least I know you will always like me, don't have to be anybody just to please you, you are my very best friend! Hey your birthday is two days from now!!!Aren't you excited? I am! Wait till you see, I have a gift for you. But it is a surprise! I hope you will like it! Oooops, I have to go ..."then he stood up and calls out, "Padre, padre, I am finished talking to my friend can accompany me to the other side of the road now"This routine happened everyday. Andoy never failed. Father Agaton shared this every Sunday to the people in his church because he has not seen a very pure faith and trust in God, a very positive look at negative situations.On Christmas day, Father Agaton was sick so he could not make it in the Church; he was sent to the hospital. The Church was left to 4 manangs who would chant the rosary in 1000 miles per hour, would not smile and would always find fault in what you do, they were also very well versed in cursing if you irritate them! They were kneeling, saying their kilometric rosary when Andoy, coming from his Christmas party, playfully dashed in. "Hello God! I ......" "P----!! (a curse) bata ka!! Alam monang may nagdadasal!!Alis!!"Poor Andoy was so terrified, "Where's Father Agaton? He is supposed to help me cross the street ...and to be able to cross the street I will have to pass by the back door of this church not only that, I have to greet Jesus. It is His birthday, I have a gift right here...." Just as he was about to get the gift out of his shirt, the manang pulled his shirt and threw him out of the church. "Susmaryosep!!! (does the sign of the crossfervently) Alis kang bata ka, kung hindi matatamaan ka!!!So the boy had no choice but to cross the dangerous side of the road in front of the church. He crossed. A fast moving bus came in. There was a blind curve. The boy was protecting his gift inside his shirt, so he was not looking. There was so little time.Andoy died on the spot. A lot of people crowded the poor boy, the body of a lifeless young boy ...Suddenly, out of nowhere a tall man in a pure white shirt and pants, a face so mild and gentle, but with eyes full of tears... He came and carried the boy in His arms. He was crying. Curious bystanders nudged the man in white, and asked, "Excuse me sir, are you related to this child? Do you know this child?" The man in white, His face mourning and in agony, looked up and answered, "He was my best friend." was all he said. He took the badly wrapped gift in the bloody chest of the lifeless boy, and placed it near His heart. He stood up and carried the boy away and they both disappeared in sight. The crowd was curious...On Christmas Eve, Father Agaton learned of the shocking news. He visited the house, and wanted to verify about the man in white. He consulted the parents of Andoy. "How did you know that your son died?" "A man in white brought him here." sobbed the mother. "What did he say?" The father answered, "He did not say anything. He was mourning. We do not know him and yet he was very lonely about our son's death, as if he knew our son very well. But there was something peaceful and unexplainable about him. He gave me my son, and then he smiled peacefully. He brushed my son's hair away from his face and kissed him on his forehead, and then he whispered something...""What did he say?" "He said to my boy..." the father began, "Thank you for the gift ... I will see you soon ... you will be with me..." and the father of the boy continued, "and you know for a while, it felt so wonderful ... I cried, but I do not know why....all I know is I cried tears of joy .... I could not explain it, Father, but when that man left, something peaceful came over me, I felt a deep sense of love inside ... I could not explain the joy in my heart, I knew my boy is in heaven now but...tell me, Father, who is this man that my son talks to everyday in your church, you should know because you are always there... except at the time of his death ......
"Father Agaton suddenly felt the tears welling in his eyes, with trembling knees, he murmurred, " ...He was talking to no one ...But GOD..."
