Let’s Take a Look at Distilled and Other types of Water

2 Comments

I was looking up information on WebMD recently about the different types of water.  Certain types of equipment mention using distilled water specifically.  I was surprised at the information I found and thought it would be interesting to share.  Summarily it stated that:

Distilled Water

It’s steam from boiling water that has been cooled and returned to the liquid state.  Salt, minerals and other organic materials have been removed from the boiling process.

Tap Water

This is water that comes straight from the faucet.  It may usually have been disinfected with chlorine and sediments removed.

Filtered Water

Filtered water is tap water that has been strained through filters to remove chlorine and other bacteria based on targeted chemicals.

Purified Water

This is water that is free of microbes and chemicals through the process of reverse osmosis.  This is achieved by forcing water through a membrane to get rid of chemicals, minerals and microbes.  Other methods of purifying water is described in the WebMD article.

Spring Water

Though not specifically discussed in the initial article that the other types of water were mentioned in, Spring Water should definitely be mentioned in this conversation.  Spring Water is also known as Mineral Water…although mineral water can also be made artificially by adding salts and other items back to distilled water.  This water comes from natural springs where moving underground water is used without processing.

Learning How to Be ‘Always Ready’ [a different take on an old post]

Comments are closed.

During my military days, I was once assigned to a unit who had a motto of, “Always Ready”. (Tish was cool as hell when everyone snapped to attention and yelled it out– …was a lil bit corny tho…) It was a training unit and I believe the ethos behind it was that, as an individual and collective as a unit; we should always be ready to contribute to the accomplishment of the mission.

Therefore, being mentally, and physically prepared and present were essential in meeting goals.  Even during personal crisis, you had a contribution to make.  Now, I wished I learned how to totally apply that to my overall life.  I was great at compartmentalizing as I think many were.  It helped me to displace and set aside the private side of my life to accomplish things on the ‘Soldier’ side.

In reflection, incorporating my entire self might have worked better for me.  For some, separating ‘work life’ from ‘personal/home life’ might work great… but that shit doesn’t work for everybody.  I think I’ll go more into depth about in an eBook, but for now we’ll keep pushing on the concept. (You know I like to keep my posts close to 300 words or less.)

So, the question is, How Do You Become Always Ready? I can say for me, learning about myself helped a lot.  Getting proper rest and exercise also helped.  The last thing I’ll mention here is motivation.  Some people are givers.  If you are one, learn to give that same energy you are willing to give to the job, to yourself.  Doing so might put you on the path to finding happiness.

I hope this helps!  Visit my site often!!

I’m working on a few eBooks as extensions about various topics I’ve posted on! 😉

Let’s Talk About Salt

Comments are closed.

The other day, I was sitting at the table and was trying to decide which salt to use;  Table Salt or Sea Salt.  My inner self quietly asked, “why do you need to add extra salt at all?”  And I replied:  Because I want it!! I love that taste and flavor!   So, I reached over and added a “little” of each. 😳  Yep, I did that.  Now, I’m writing about why–amongst other things.

I usually reach for the salt shaker because of habit.  In my younger years, when I exercised a lot, or did a lot of manual work, it wasn’t an issue because I got a chance to sweat a lot.  Which, I think that might be the case for many people.  But now, I have a need to create a new habit.  Paying more attention to what and how I eat.

I’ve actually been moving in that direction for quite a while …since my days in the military.  But, Read More

The Red Delicious is My Friend

Simply put, I like Red Delicious Apples because they make me feel good.  I usually eat apples on and off throughout the year.  But, in particular around this time of year …and spring time I usually like to eat them because they help open my clogged nasal passages and sniffles.

I’ve often felt that there were a lot of health benefits to eating apples and believed that there was some truth to the axiom “An apple a day keeps the doctors away”.  So, I stopped being lazy and decided to actually do a little research.

Every Man Is an Island [Revisited]

resting

Looking at the partial quote of John Donne’s “No man is an island, entire of itself”, I find truth in the implied recognition that ‘Every man IS an island‘. You just have to find out if and how you are connected to the neighboring pieces of land aka people.

For in truth, each person is accountable for his or her self. That is not to say that people should be, or are selfish. However, I am saying that, in reality, after all is said and done; you are accountable for you.

To that end, each person has to make a decision on what he or she will choose to do when a situation turns critical. Some will choose to be a friend to the end. Some will choose to look out for themselves. But regardless of what “they” have decided to do—the choice is and will be theirs to make.
