Our Bodies

I have collected some facts about how our bodies work, and would love to share.  Below is an example of some Yoga poses and what it does for the body.

Do you love to sneeze? Not the cold kind of sneeze, but the satisfying sneeze, I love it!

This is an interesting article about the bodies that we see if fitness magazines, and what it takes to get there, and how it is not a normal state of being, and unfortunately that is what people think is healthy and sexy.

If we do not take care of our bodies,

Even unintentionally,

My heart goes out to the family and friends of the young boy below BDE,

Very tragic news this Shabbat , this kind hearted Brooklyn friend Ari Levin choked to death on his vomit after drinking a considerable amount of alcohol, on Friday night. 

So upset and sad why g-d takes away amazing people so quickly in this kind of way!! 😔DRINK RESPONSIBLY AND DEFINITELY DO NOT LET YOUR FRIENDS SLEEP ON THERE BACK WHILE DRUNK PEOPLE ITS NO JOKE!!!

This was written by Ari’s sister:

I want to beg something of all of you. I know a lot of you enjoy drinking, it’s a fun activity, you do it to be social. But- it’s something you need to be responsible about, not just for yourself, but for whoever’s doing it with you. I want to tell you about a boy I know. He went to his friends for shabbos, and Friday night they headed over to the house of a gevir who’s known to have an open bar, fully stocked, as much as you want. This boy drank- nothing crazy, not too much. He went downstairs pretty early to go to sleep. His friends saw him later that night, flat on his back, snoring away. They left him alone, and a little while on, woke up again to see that something was seriously wrong. I don’t know exactly what- was he gagging? Choking? Throwing up? I don’t know. They called Hatzalah, but by the time they came it was too late- this 26-year-old guy, single, his whole life ahead of him, was dead. Because he choked to death on his back. Tonight, his family is sobbing their eyes out. They’re brokenhearted. His 7 brothers, his 3 sisters, they can’t believe it’s true and they’re just beginning to grasp the fact that they’ll never be a whole family again. And his mother- she’s practically collapsing. She can’t understand how this is happening. Why his friends let this happen. How they left him alone when one little thing would have saved him.
How do I know this story? Because it’s my brother. Ari Levin. I’m the one watching my brothers fall apart as they try to grasp that they’re never going to hug Ari again. They’re crying about how they regret they didn’t get to say goodbye, they’re wishing they could tell him how much they love him, they’re sobbing it to each other and holding on to each other desperately.
I know my dear brother Ari died for a reason, even if I don’t know what that reason was. I know it was Hashem’s plan and that if it happened, this is what He meant to happen. But- I also know that right now, his friends are feeling overwhelming guilt. They’re feeling that if they had just watched over him a little better, turned him on his side, he wouldn’t have died this way. They wouldn’t have to face my parents at the levaya tomorrow, knowing that they could have done something about his death. And my parents are wishing they’d known about Ari’s plans for the night, they would have begged him not to go. Go know that you could drink the same amount you always do but this time it’s going to go wrong.
So I’m begging you guys, as a brokenhearted sister, as a future wife and mother- if you’re going to drink, please be more responsible. Know your limits, but know your friends’ as well. Watch over them and try to make sure they’re as safe as possible. Know what’s safe and what’s not. Please. The life you save could be your own.
