Remarkably simple, in theory. Extremely difficult for most of us to put into practice.However, if we can focus our efforts, our 5 minutes a day, our 1 hour a day, our day of the week, towards this intention, we are that much closer to actualizing the person we want to be or believe we can be.The trick is to do it without getting tripped up on whether others are doing the work or not.

Now a study like this cannot conclude that parabens cause breast cancer, but this is further establishing a link between them.
