Why did humans need it? There was the time when humans were more interested in the struggle for survival against the elements, and against dangerous animals and also other human beings of other tribes. Slowly and steadily, human beings began to get more settled. Peace came onto the earth - or at least in their regions. Settlements began to grow. People began to settle down to an agriculturalist style of living, instead of going in for the Hunter lifestyle followed by their ancestors. Their Hunter ancestors 10,000 years ago - and ours, perhaps 25,000 years ago, and more - were not bothered much about gathering plenty of physical and material belongings to them. The concept of "your" and "mine" was not a common thing at that time. Nevertheless, they knew that they needed some basic materials to survive. These included clothing, hunting weapons and shelter. Utensils, they could do without, because all they needed was to have any hollow space available, and there they were, they could cook the food hunted during the day, and next day move their camps to other hunting grounds. But as human beings began to settle down, and began making permanent places in which to live, there began a steady search for knowledge and the expansion of mankind's creative and artistic sensibilities. That is when the concept of Your and Mine came into existence. The instinct of possessing something which was not easily available or which was just the possession of one particular person began to crop up in the lives of human beings. And that brought with it sorrow, jealousy, envy, greed, and all the other negative emotions, which unfortunately are parts of our lives today.
Quirky Girl's TEN POINT PLAN for a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE EVERY PERSON IS DIFFERENT EVERYONE STARTS FROM WHERE THEY ARE NOW YOUR LIFESTYLE CHANGES ARE TAILORED PERSONALLY FOR YOU The biggest challenge with most conventional 'diets' is boredom. The same old boring 'diet' foods - always feeling on the edge of hunger - can't eat this - shouldn't eat that. Not allowed to drink alcohol - red wine is more fattening than white wine - beer is full of calories - dry cider is better for you than sweet cider. Says who? Not me. We've heard it all before - it didn't work then and it never will work. No food or drink is banned on the Ten Point Plan. You learn to eat the food you love in the quantities that suit the person you wish to become. If you eat properly balanced meals which suit the lifestyle you live, you will never feel hungry and resort to 'yo-yo' dieting of bingeing and starving. BELIEVE IN YURSELF.
