Have You Been Too Busy?

Randy Glasbergen
We all want to be labeled "too busy" because it sounds productive. Well, you can count me out now because I've learned my lesson well here. I hate being tagged "too busy" because it makes you the most unproductive person in the universe.

I find myself too busy now and then especially when titles I have to write about pile up. That's when I realize I'm most unproductive. I do lots of works but I don't get to do what I really love doing. Yes, I love to write, but not for other people. I love to write for myself---for my own blogs.

Been away much of the recent holidays. I decided I'd just spend time in a farm or any place rural where life is simple and time is slow. I want to live a free life, free from being too busy. I just want to be "a bit busy" now and then with things I love doing---reading, cooking, blogging and spending quiet moments with God looking afar. To me, these are things that really matter. I'm productive when I do them.

I don't want to go back to doing anything that looks like work.

The reason why most people love being too busy is Job Security. Being buried in hard work makes them feel needed and important. In a sense, yes, but it's more like slavery to me. Like how the slaves in ancient Egypt were needed and important to build the huge pyramids. It's meaningless to be too busy like that---building pyramids for other people and later finding yourself dead and buried in that same pyramid, not as Pharaoh but as his slave. It's what makes most people exhausted and lonely.

Here's how to beat loneliness in life. Buy a PDF copy of my e-book.

I'd prefer that no one needs me in their offices as an employee, but that everyone needs the product I sell in my own business. I want a business that would just render me "a bit busy" with the things I really love doing. Some folks are in business, but they turn their businesses into another form of slavery that makes them too busy. It's because of business security---they're scared of losing money.

Makes you understand more why fear is a cruel master. But God says perfect love casts out fear. You have to do what you love doing in life, and what you love doing in life will surely keep you from being too busy.

So, are you too busy?

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
