For example, cooking meals at home can help you save money and time. This becomes especially helpful when you’re trying to shed pounds in a hurry for a destination wedding or family reunion!

7 Best Weight Loss Habits that Actually Work

So, in order to help you get on the right path, here are some no-diet, no-exercise ways to start losing weight and keep it off for good.

Don’t diet

Many studies have shown that the number-one predictor of future weight gain is being on a diet right now.

The reality is that if you’re cutting your calories dramatically, it’ll reduce your strength, muscle mass and bone density – and you need all 3 to be healthy! On top of that diets are depleting your energy levels and make you feel constantly more hungry.

This is why it’s so important to focus on building better habits instead of focusing on a number on the scale.

Plan your meals in advance to avoid impulse eating and cravings

We all know that not eating enough can cause you to gain weight and have a general sense of unhappiness. However, it’s not just starving yourself that can lead to weight gain; many people overeat because they are unprepared, or don’t know what they want to eat. This might be the perfect time for a meal planner app! These programs can help you organize your meals in advance so you know what and when to eat helping you with your grocery list.

Don’t go fat-free. Fats are important for your digestion

Fats have been demonized for their high calorie content, but they are essential for our digestion. Fats help to give us the fuel we need to function, and they are needed so that our body can absorb vitamins A, D, E and K. In other words, fats are actually really good for you!

Instead of cutting fats, you’ll want to focus on eating healthy fats at every meal

Drink a glass of water before every meal and snack

Drinking a glass of water before a meal can help reduce hunger and prevent overeating. Research has shown that this simple step can help people lose weight. It also helps to have a clear mind throughout the day and hydrate the body.

Make sure you’re eating enough protein when trying to lose weight

Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet. Protein can help you feel full and has been shown to increase satiety. It also helps prevent weight gain and muscle loss that often happen when you’re trying to lose weight.

Protein can be found in many different foods, but it is important to note that not all protein sources are created equal. For example, some sources of protein have a higher amount of fat in them, which could make it difficult for people who are trying to lose weight. It’s also important not to eat too much protein because too much protein could lead to kidney disease and other health problems.

The best source of protein for someone who is trying to lose weight is lean chicken or turkey breast without the skin on it (it’s good for your heart). Other good sources are lentils, beans, peas, surprisingly parsley is an immense source of vegetable protein/

Stay active. Engage in regular physical activity for at least 30 minutes each day

One of the most important things you can do for your health is staying active. Physical activity is essential to maintain a healthy weight and improve your heart, brain, and immune system. Regular exercise can even help prevent certain diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or cancer. Regular exercise has also been shown to reduce anxiety levels and improve sleep quality.

You really don’t need a 20 pages exercise plan in order to stay lean. You do, however, need to carve out time to move around. Train yourself to say yes to more movement. Take the steps. Walk these 2 blocks to the grocery store. Subscribe to a good online yoga and dedicate at least 15-30 minutes daily. Keep the things simple. Just add some more movement. Step after step after step.

Watch less TV, and turn off your phone after 9 pm

Ditching the TV and turning off your phone after 9 pm are two changes that can greatly improve your sleep. The blue light emitted from screens is inversely correlated with melatonin levels, which helps you fall asleep and regulates our circadian rhythms. To get our best rest, we should avoid these lights for at least an hour before bedtime.

New Moon in Aquarius

❤️ New Moon in Aquarius! New Year of the White Metal Ox!

The new enters our lives more and more. The question is whether we will be in sync with it or not.

How to synchronize with the upcoming New Moon in Aquarius, which gives the beginning of the White Metal Ox year?

Here are the seven steps:

1. On 11.02.2021, wide open the windows of your home, ventilate well as a symbol of throwing away the old and the stale energy. The next step is to light frankincense and work your home in a clockwise direction. If you do not have frankincense, you can use a bay leaf or incense sticks. That will purify and renew the energy and help you enter the new year fresh and renewed.

2. From the evening of 10 February for 24 hours, lighten your diet if possible and based on your health condition’s specifics. That will purify both your body and your thoughts. They are connected.

3. It is good to light 5 (preferably white) candles on 5 consecutive days. 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15.02

4. Voluntary sacrifice! What is that unnecessary something in yourself that you will metaphorically sacrifice? A quality that you know is time to break up with, that is not good for you. The one you should not wait for circumstances of your life to press you to release. It is good to decide by the dawn of 11/02/2021. Carefully meditate on it. And then just leave this something in the old year.

5. The new year begins on 12.02.2021; as you can see, these are mirrored numbers. That is a sign that a powerful energy portal is opening. This time is particularly great for unlimited and bold dreams! Use those during your meditation or before sleep.

6. The Metal Ox is a conservative being, so these next few days, don’t wear red; it will anger it. Also, avoid beef at the table. The Ox is a domesticated animal, so it is best to be home on the evening of 11.02

7. The Ox is revered as a sacred animal in India, Nepal, China, and it will reward anyone who’s patient, consistent, and persistent. Jupiter – the planet of luck and happiness, is the planet of Taurus. It is believed that Taurus brings happiness, luck, and fertility to the consistent and hardworking.

I wish you an inspired New Beginning!

Dreams come true!

Renewal and Expansion!

And let the Light lead us on the way!

Meditation

❤️ Meditation – touching the Divine

There are often ups and downs in our lives, success, failure, gain, loss, joy and disappointment, pain, suffering, chaos, confusion, insecurity. And no matter how much we strengthen our ego, develop our confidence and personal qualities, we still remain vulnerable and dependent on external circumstances, people, situations, and events.

But there is a place in us, deep inside us, where everything is fine, there we are independent and free, a place that is our true nature, a place where we are “at home.”

Hermann Hesse writes in Siddhartha:

Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.”

And as one of my favourite authors, Deepak Chopra says:

“People need to know that they have all the tools within themselves. Self-awareness, which means awareness of their body, awareness of their mental space, awareness of their relationships – not only with each other but with life and the ecosystem.”

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts. the average person thinks every day”.

There are many types of Meditation,

but everyone can find the one that is best for him. You don’t have to be a Tibetan monk or a Zen Buddhist to meditate. Everyone can meditate, and this is our most natural state.

I like Meditation, in which you just sit relaxed in the silence and focus on your breathing, or as it is said in Buddhism – you do not focus exactly but merge with your breathing. You pay attention to everything that happens to you – such as passing thoughts, desires, feelings, etc., but nothing is analyzed, evaluated, determined.

You don’t need to stop your thoughts or try to control your reactions. The mind is best directed by simply being released. We constantly have thoughts in our heads, and they flow constantly. The mind is like a naughty monkey jumping from branch to branch, and if you try to tame it, it will start jumping even faster. But in Meditation, when you just “observe” the passing thoughts … they subside, stop, and a “gap” appears between them.

Many authors claim that you should not think about anything during Meditation that you should stop your thoughts. But it is challenging, if not impossible, to consciously say to your thoughts, “STOP.”

There is a modern zen-koan:

Can you not think about anything without not thinking about it at all?

If you sit and think, “I don’t think about anything, my mind is empty,”… that’s thought again. So you shouldn’t try to stop your thoughts, and you shouldn’t think about it. It would help if you did not give any pompousness to the Meditation or expect too much from it. It will only hinder you. You just sit and watch … and let everything happen. Let it just be. If any thought arises – “do I do it right? “or some emotion appears, not to go into it and evaluate it, not to blame yourself, not to stop it, but to observe it … and then it flies away.

It is best to imagine that you are sitting and watching the sky – birds fly there- big and small, loud and quiet, clouds cross – white or black, turbulent or calm. But they fly back and forth, they come and go. They go, and the space remains calm and clean. Its peace and balance cannot be disturbed. Relax, and do not think whether your posture is correct. Get rid of any restrictions and any desire for control. If you try to follow some technology strictly, it will only strain you. Get rid of everything and don’t even think that you are relaxed or how Meditation should happen. Go beyond the limiting mind that is always trying to define. When you are calm, you will just feel. That is how the magic of Meditation happens.

“So whatever thoughts and emotions arise, allow them to rise and settle, like the waves in the ocean. Whatever you find yourself thinking, let that thought rise and settle, without any constraint. Don’t grasp at it, feed it, or indulge it; don’t cling to it, and don’t try to solidify it. Neither follow thoughts nor invite them; be like the ocean looking at its own waves, or the sky gazing down on the clouds that pass through it. You will soon find that thoughts are like the wind; they come and go. The secret to Meditation is not to “think” about thoughts, but to allow them to flow through the mind, while keeping your mind free of afterthoughts. “From Sogyal Rinpoche’s Tibetan Book of Life and Death

 

❤️ Meditation – a charger for the mind
The word and the concept of “meditation” are covered in a mystical halo. Well, today, we will
 

Thus, when you observe how reactions, thoughts, sensations appear and then disappear, you realize that everything IS and IS NOT. E. And that everything that happens in us is transient. Our reactions are triggered by some processes inside us, and we react knowledgable mechanically. Our consciousness is burdened by external influences, by our initial expectations and ideas, by our attitudes. But through Meditation, you go beyond that consciousness and reach our true nature, where we are detached from the outside world. Looking at things from this state, we understand that we can react to something in a new way and that everything that happens is a kind of game, an illusion, a temporary role.

In Meditation, we come out of this role and reach the Spirit within us. Some external event can never shake it. The Spirit is free from all the ego’s needs for approval, control, evaluation, determination. The Spirit inside us is always calm – as when there is excitement on the surface of the sea, but deep at the bottom, it is calm, and no storms can affect the peace.

In Meditation, you feel that the world is as it should be, that it is as it is. And it is not necessary to fight it, evaluate it, and complain, but to ACCEPT it. We don’t have to control the world because uncertainty is part of evolution, of change. But we can simply see the world as it is, without labeling it, without interpreting it, looking at it with clear eyes, without distorting the view through the prism of our burdened ego.

The place we reach during Meditation is the only place where we can find peace, get the Wisdom, the Power, the Love, the Freedom, and the Joy within us. Through Meditation, we can reach insights, decisions, inspiring ideas, peace, and balance. Because then we are free from everything because we have got “home.”

And a final words of wisdom by Steve Jobs:
“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things – that’s when your intuition starts to blossom, and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before.”

the real luxury

❤️ The real luxury is to live the way you like

Luxury is not for cowards; it is not makeup; it is not going to restaurants or any particular dressing style.

The real luxury is to live the way you like.

With comfortable pants. In comfortable shoes. With the color of lipstick that suits you, or no lipstick at all. To have food that is delicious to you, friends with whom you are comfortable, to be together because of love, not out of a sense of duty.

Learn to give up the unnecessary,

what is obsolete and worn out. And take care of what you like. My friend’s 5-year-old daughter has been visiting us with her favorite spoon all her little life. She can afford to eat with the utensils she likes. Her mother gets annoyed every time and tries to justify herself. I started taking picnic utensils with me because I’m not particularly eager to eat in plastic. And I don’t care what others think about it.

Luxury living should not be “deserved.”

It’s about the fact that whatever item of choice is worthy for you. The cup given to you by your sister. Dad’s T-shirt, which is so cozy to sleep in. Cake made by your Mom’s recipe. The kiss of a loved one. Exciting books. Great movies. Your favorite songs. Clean bed linen. Tidy apartment. Life of your choice!

It is a luxury not to punish yourself when something goes wrong.

Socks can tear. The cake may not be tasty. Friends may not want to watch your favorite movie with you. The person you love can leave. You might not get a deserved promotion. Anything can happen. If something doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t affect your value. It just means that not everything is going the way you want it to now.

It is a luxury to choose how to live.

Sew torn socks or buy new ones. Throw away the cake and order sushi, or try to make it again. Watch the movie alone or go for a coffee with friends. Let go or fight! Look for a new job or reconsider your old goals.

It is a luxury to live by your own rules.

Move towards your goals. Don’t apologize. Don’t be in your comfort zone. Do not justify your choices, your dreams, your interests.

Say, “I deserve something much better.” And then, “I can do it.

Two Bad Bricks

❤️Two Bad Bricks

Ajahn Brahmavamso’s story of Two Bad Bricks from his book Who Ordered This Truckload Of Dung? is the inspirational story that human relationships should be built on. If you haven’t read this book, the least you can do will be to read the story here:

Two Bad Bricks

“After we purchased the land for our monastery in 1983 we were broke. We were in debt. There were no buildings on the land, not even a shed. Those first few weeks we slept not on beds but on old doors we had bought cheaply from the salvage yard; we raised them on bricks at each corner to lift them off the ground. (There were no mattresses, of course — we were forest monks.)

“The abbot had the best door, the flat one. My door was ribbed with a sizeable hole in the center where the doorknob would have been. I joked that now I wouldn’t need to get out of bed to go to the toilet! The cold truth was, however, that the wind would come up through that hole. I didn’t sleep much those nights.

“We were poor monks who needed buildings. We couldn’t afford to employ a builder — the materials were expensive enough. So I had to learn how to build: how to prepare the foundations, lay concrete and bricks, erect the roof, put in the plumbing — the whole lot. I had been a theoretical physicist and high-school teacher in lay life, not used to working with my hands. After a few years, I became quite skilled at building, even calling my crew the BBC (“Buddhist Building Company”). But when I started it was very difficult.

“It may look easy to lay a brick: a dollop of mortar underneath, a little tap here, a little tap there. But when I began laying bricks, I’d tap one corner down to make it level and another corner would go up. So I’d tap that corner down then the brick would move out of line. After I’d nudged it back into line, the first corner would be too high again. Hey, you try it!

“Being a monk, I had the patience and as much time as I needed. I made sure every single brick was perfect, no matter how long it took. Eventually, I completed my first brick wall and stood back to admire it. It was only then that I noticed— oh no! — I’d missed two bricks. All the other bricks were nicely in line, but these two were inclined at an angle. They looked terrible. They spoiled the whole wall. They ruined it.

“By then, the cement mortar was too hard for the bricks to be taken out, so I asked the abbot if I could knock the wall down and start over again — or, even better, perhaps blow it up. I’d made a mess of it and I was very embarrassed. The abbot said no, the wall had to stay.

“When I showed our first visitors around our fledgling monastery, I always tried to avoid taking them past my brick wall. I hated anyone seeing it. Then one day, some three or four months after I finished it, I was walking with a visitor and he saw the wall.

You can get the book here:

” ‘That’s a nice wall,’ he casually remarked.

” ‘Sir,’ I replied in surprise, ‘have you left your glasses in your car? Are you visually impaired? Can’t you see those two bad bricks which spoil the whole wall?’

What he said next changed my whole view of that wall, of myself, and of many other aspects of life.

He said, “Yes. I can see those two bad bricks. But I can see the 998 good bricks as well.’

“I was stunned. For the first time in over three months, I could see other bricks in that wall apart from the two mistakes. Above, below, to the left, and to the right of the bad bricks were good bricks, perfect bricks. Moreover, the perfect bricks were many, many more than the two bad bricks. Before, my eyes would focus exclusively on my two mistakes; I was blind to everything else. That was why I couldn’t bear looking at that wall, or having others see it. That was why I wanted to destroy it. Now that I could see the good bricks, the wall didn’t look so bad after all. It was, as the visitor had said, ‘a nice brick wall.’ It’s still there now, twenty years later, but I’ve forgotten exactly where those bad bricks are. I literally cannot see those mistakes anymore.

“How many people end a relationship or get divorced because all they can see in their partner are ‘two bad bricks’? How many of us become depressed or even contemplate suicide, because all we can see in ourselves are ‘two bad bricks.’ In truth, there are many, many more good bricks, perfect bricks — above, below, to the left, and to the right of the faults — but at times we just can’t see them. Instead, every time we look our eyes focuses exclusively on the mistakes. The mistakes are all we see, they’re all we think are there and so we want to destroy them. And sometimes, sadly, we do destroy a ‘very nice wall.’

“We’ve all got our two bad bricks, but the perfect bricks in each one of us are much, much more than the mistakes. Once we see this, things aren’t so bad. Not only can we live at peace with ourselves, inclusive of our faults, but we can also enjoy living with a partner. This is bad news for divorce lawyers, but good news for you.

“I have told this anecdote many times. After one occasion, a builder came up to me and told me a professional secret. ‘We builders always make mistakes,’ he said, ‘But we tell our clients that it is “an original feature” with no other house in the neighborhood like it. And then we charge them a couple of thousand dollars extra!’

“So the ‘unique features’ in your house probably started out as mistakes. In the same way, what you might take to be mistakes in yourself, in your partner, or in general, can become ‘unique features,’ enriching your time here — once you stop focusing on them exclusively.”

You can get the book here:

 

Ajahn Brahm has been a monk for more than 30 years. He is now a revered spiritual guide and abbot of one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the southern hemisphere. On 29 Oct 2006, the Bangkok Post wrote this about him: “His clerical name is Phra Brahmavamso. His official Buddhist title in the Thai ecclesiastical hierarchy is Phra Visutisangvornthera. But the UK-born monk is known internationally as Ajahn Brahm. And he likes it that way – short and simple. He likes his teachings to be that way too. Ajahn Brahm’s accessible and practical teachings, delivered with a humorous touch, have won him an international following. Ordained for 32 years and trained under the late meditation master and forest monk Ajahn Chah, he is now abbot of the Bodhinyana Monastery in Australia.”

7 things to get rid from your life

❤️ 7 things to get rid from your life

Every change starts from the inside out.

The world is changing because you are changing. Not the other way around. YES! We are moving forward, but it is important to take our new selves forward. And for our new self, it’s essential to get rid of these 7 things. They would be a pointless burden on the road.

Here are 7 things to get rid from your life:

1. Criticism of yourself and others

It’s time to revise this habit, which only drains your energy. It doesn’t matter if you criticize mentally or aloud. Criticism is only needed for discovering and analyzing what you need to keep working on. It is a constructive critique. BUT! When it becomes a relentless river of resentment, denial, rejection, hatred, it becomes hidden aggression towards you and others. Aggression attracts more aggression, and without realizing it, you enter into a vicious circle. Everything has its positive and its not so positive sides. Learn to accept both, to seek and discover the positive in you and things.

2. Living in the past

You will not find anything new there. When you live in the past, you bring it into the present and make it your current attraction point. It is how you attract more of the same. And then you wonder why you attract the same relationships, situations, and things again. Throw away old wounds and pain. Take off your old insults and fears. Put on faith, goodwill. And go ahead. Don’t let the past steal your present.

3. Toxic relationships

These are one-way relationships. Relationships in which energy moves only from one side to the other, and there is no exchange. Only you give, save, listen, comfort, help. These are relationships that steal your energy and mood. It’s time to change. Someone only looks for you when they need something. And do you need this type of communication?

Don’t pretend to be a good person with toxic people. If you are sympathetic to them, you become toxic to yourself.

4. Excessive thinking

It is the art of creating problems that do not exist. Suppose you are the type of person who tends to think the same thing over and over again like a merry-go-round. You spend more time in your mind than in reality. It is merely the inertia of the mind. It’s time to release the momentum that steals from your present. This way, you give more importance to things that do not really deserve your concern. Just say to yourself: STOP! And return your awareness to the present. This is only a matter of a little practice. The moment you take your attention out of the thought carousel and infuse it into the present reality, and you are ready. You will feel how you got out of the grip of the mental carousel. Then persevere with this practice for a while. You will now feel how nice it is to regain the joy of life.

5. Fear of change

How do you know that what you are accustomed to or have is better than what is coming? The only sure thing in life is change. Learning to accept change is one of the essential lessons of modern times. Of course, any change is associated with leaving the comfort zone. But the moment you allow the change, you realize that it has expanded your comfort zone. It has made you more flexible and adaptable. After all, life itself is an endless journey, learning, and expansion, right? And the more you resist change and try to hide in safety, the more painful it becomes. With each change, you become more conscious, knowledgeable, skilled, and wise. Change brings expansion. Trust the change.

6. To underestimate yourself

Stop doing it. Stop underestimating yourself. You keep thinking that others are more than you. And you are inferior to them. Too often, I meet capable and talented people who, however, underestimate themselves so much that they place a restrictive barrier to their future development. And only because they do not believe in themselves. They are too critical of themselves and thus underestimate their capabilities and skills. If you have such a tendency, it’s time to stop sabotaging yourself. How? Observe how you think of yourself. You often put labels in your thoughts and characterize yourself with not very pleasant characteristics. How to stop underestimating yourself? By taking care of your confidence and self-esteem.

It is essential to realize and accept that mistakes are part of you growing up.

And they don’t define you as incompetent, silly, or bad. Start noticing and paying attention to your good qualities. And they are so many. Notice and enjoy the small successes and victories. You managed not to get angry, and you kept your composure in a critical situation. You have shown empathy and supported someone in need. You have kept your dignity despite the difficulty and so forth. The examples can be countless. The point is to notice them, to reflect on them. Everyone has good and not so good qualities. Whichever you choose to focus on is up to you.

❤️The best things in life
Let’s remember what some of the best things in life are. Maybe then we will realize that our days are not so
 

7. Trying to please everyone.

You don’t need it at all, because you also don’t like everyone. But the desire to please everyone has stolen so much from the beauty of life. Any attempt to please someone just to be approved by them takes you away from yourself. In order to please everyone, you betray and lose yourself. And even if you make everyone like you, it still won’t be an indicator of your worth. And you, your value, you determine it yourself with your attitude towards you.

Do you like yourself is the important question?

Do you approve of the path you are taking? Are you satisfied with the choices you make? And the strange paradox is that the less you depend on others’ opinions about you, the more they start to like you. You are important. Try to please yourself because you will share your whole life with you. The others come and go. But you will stay with you.

Get rid of these 7 things, and you will feel that you are regaining your life and the joy of life.

Sometimes, it is important to get rid of the old unnecessary burden in order to move forward. Change starts from the inside out. And every little step along the way is worth it because this is the way to you.

You are Wonderful… LIFE IS WONDERFUL!

Dr. Hinohara’s advice for longevity and fulfilling life:

Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara is one of those to whom Japan is indebted for its many centenarians. He himself was a worthy example with his incredibly active life – after turning 75, he published over 150 books, including the bestseller “Live Long, Live Well“, distributed in 1.2 million copies. After celebrating his 100th birthday, Dr. Hinohara continues to treat people and give lectures. His life remains dedicated to the good cause – to guide and advise people on achieving health and longevity. In July 2017, the Japanese doctor left this world at the age of 105.

One does not get energy from food and sleep but from joy.

Do you remember how in childhood, if you had fun, you forgot to eat and did not need sleep? It’s the same for adults. You should not plague your body with strict rules of eating and sleeping.

energy from foodPeople of all races, nationalities, and genders can live long. They have only one thing in common – there is not a single fat person among the long-lived. For example, at breakfast, I drink coffee or milk, maybe orange juice with a spoonful of olive oil – it is good for the skin and arteries. At lunch – milk with biscuits, or nothing if I’m too busy. When I work, I don’t feel hungry at all. My dinner – vegetables, some fish and rice. Twice a week, I eat 100 g of lean meat. So you should not get all your energy from food but also from joy and happiness!

It is not necessary to retire at all.

But if this is unavoidable, try to do it as late as possible. Today, the retirement age in Japan is 65, but it was introduced half a century ago, when life expectancy was 68, and centenarians across Japan at the time were a total of 125 people. Today, Japanese women live on average to 86 and men to 80. Those who passed the 100 are 36,000 people.

To stay healthy, go up the stairs and carry your bags. I even skip steps to train my muscles.

When doctors advise you to do specific tests and recommend surgery, ask them if they would give their loved ones the same advice. Doctors cannot cure everything they tell us. Why suffer unnecessary suffering? Sometimes music and animal therapists help more than surgeons.

Pain is a mysterious thing. The best way to deal with it is to find something exciting. When a child has a toothache, it is worth involving him in play to forget the pain. There is a lot of fun in our hospital “St. Luke” – music, animals, art therapy. This helps a lot.

Don’t try to accumulate so many material things.

Remember – no one knows when his last hour will come. And he won’t take any of that with him.

Science alone cannot help people.

Science puts us under one denominator, but we are all different, and disease is closely related to our soul. To understand the disease and help man, we need not only science but also art.

Living long is wonderful.

Up to the age of 60, we work for our family’s good, and it is easy for us to reach the set goals. Then, however, we have to do good for the good of society as a whole. Since I turned 65, I have been working for free, 18 hours a day, seven days a week. And I enjoy every minute.
