The constant principle of pi has me thinking of life’s other constants too, like the ever-circling demands for our attention, energy and time.
Pi is an everyday thing, after all, yet many obstacles and opportunities that arise in our daily lives are as unknowable to us as the principle of pi.
Albert Einstein’s quote about figuring out what matters shows that all the answers may not be found in the language of math:
“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.“
But how do we know what counts? In a recent post, I wondered how we go about determining which life choices deserve “the prestige of our ambition and creativity”. Investing in your home base — the body, the place where we live — is a great place to start and here’s why:
The fact is our skin works hard, and that’s why skincare deserves our focused attention because it plays roles in our health, our identity and in our behavior.
New evidence suggests that we get immune support from pathogens from microbes living in our skin, regulating a delicate balance between protection and inflammation. But these microbes even play a role in determining who we go to bed with, so in some sense they’re another part of our skin that defines us, making us who we are.
Let’s do the math: With just 5 minutes of focused attention on your skin morning and night, you’ll be putting up to 15 antioxidant-rich skin-conditioning oils to work for you with Eu2Be lotion, oil and soap:
- Anti-aging benefits of refined skin texture and plumped fine lines
- Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents
- Vitamins A, D, E, plus lecithin, potassium, proteins, beta-carotene
- Skin-healing fatty acids
I’d say that’s 5 minutes well spent.
