While some complain about the thorny rose bushes, others rejoice
and praise God that thorns have roses. You must have heard the old adage, "Your attitude determines your altitude." Attitude is one of the most important factors that leads to joy and fulfillment, as it governs our perception.
However, how do we go
about establishing a more positive attitude as a daily habit? It is
simple; we just need to take a daily dose of vitamin G!
Want to learn more about this vitamin? Then read on....
Your Attitude Determines Your Happiness
is a choice; we are as happy as we choose to be. If we don't know how
to be happy with what we have, we will never be happy with more. It's a
myth that having more of anything will make us happier. So, how do we
choose to be happy then? Through the potential of the mind, instructs
our beloved Lord, Shree Krishna:
उद्धरेदात्मनात्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत् |
आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बन्धुरात्मैव रिपुरात्मन: ||
uddhared ātmanātmānaṁ nātmānam avasādayet |
ātmaiva hyātmano bandhur ātmaiva ripur ātmanaḥ ||
(Bhagavad Gita 6.5)
yourself through the power of your mind, and not degrade yourself, for
the mind can be the friend and also the enemy of the self."
we can change our attitude, no one can do it for us. Trials and
tribulations come alike to all humankind, we all have our burdens. What
counts is how we carry those. Two prisoners look out the same prison bars; while one sees dirt, the other sees stars.
take a pause and reflect on your life deeply. Take stock of your life -
a healthy body and mind, the infinite divine knowledge available, the
free will, the intellect that guards and
elevates the thoughts, a Guru/spiritual preceptor that dispels the
darkness of ignorance, supportive family and friends, fulfilling career,
etc. Do you see how your life is full of blessings that you hardly
notice? Have you counted all these blessings and many more that God has
bestowed upon you?
we are and have been are sheer gifts of God. Are you grateful for all
these blessings in your life? Do you celebrate and express your
gratitude every day for what you have received? In other words, do you
take a daily dose of vitamin G? If you do so, you naturally attract
happiness says, H. H. Swami Mukundananda ji in his video message below.
He gives us a quick insight into how to change our attitude to feel
gratitude. The daily dose of vitamin G changes for ever how we
experience life and the world.

Wellness for Life
Daily Dietary Check
health is essential for numerous reasons but the most important of all
is that a healthy body and mind allow a person to nurture the spiritual
health of the soul. We need to ensure that we maintain a healthy body,
mind and soul in order to serve the Lord because we are His servants and
this is the only purpose of our life.
These check points will help us to keep track of our daily diet:
- Consume 1 lemon daily either in the early morning with warm water or squeeze the juice over salads.
- Take 2 servings of fresh seasonal fruit (i.e., one moderate sized fruit)
- Take a handful of sprouts.
- Have a fistful of nuts and dry fruits.
- Take 4 servings of fresh vegetables either cooked or in a salad.
- A bowl of yoghurt or buttermilk with your meal.
your choice of cereals to include whole wheat,
oats, barley, quinoa, millets, spelt and rye throughout
- Have at one bowl of dal or lentils daily to ensure protein intake especially if you are a vegetarian.
- Vegetarians should eat flaxseed or alsi to ensure intake of the Omega 3 Fatty Acid.
- Drink water at the right time.
- Avoid cold drinks and iced preparations with meals.
- Try to convince your mind to relax before eating to enhance the digestive process and be conscious of what you eat.
- Avoid overeating by getting off the table before you get to the point of total satiation.
- Rest a while after lunch instead of diving into tasks that require physical or mental exertion.
- Take a comfortable short stroll after dinner to enhance the digestive process.
