Practice Gratitude. Without a doubt this simple exercise can be one of the most beneficial of our day. Towards the end of your day call to mind five experiences or moments from your day for which you feel Grateful. This Gratitude Exercise helps you to focus on what is good and beautiful in your life. Manage your thoughts, try not to be overwhelmed by negative thinking. Notice your emotions, especially the painful ones, deal with what is real and present rather than the wild unreal imaginings which can drag you down.

Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE World Health Organisation and the HSE recognise the need for us to take care of our Mental Health and Well-Being during this Covid-19 Pandemic.We need to do this consciously on a daily basis. Over the past ten weeks I have written a series of articles on how Mindfulness can help us through this crisis. I am summarising the key points of the articles in a list of ten Mindful Habits which can improve our Mental Health and Well-Being at this time. I hope you find them helpful. Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener WhatsApp Develop Acceptance. Though it is not easy, try to accept things as they are now. Of course, life is not as we would like it to be. Acceptance is the bridge that leads to a place of calm and to new beginnings. Use the Prayer: “Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference”. Mind your Mind – Be aware of the need to take care of your own Mental Health and Well-Being. This is primarily your own responsibility. Be Kind and Compassionate towards yourself and towards others. We need to take extra care of ourselves. Do simple Acts of Kindness for yourself and for others. This generates something positive within us while at the same time building up those around us. Be Kind!Manage Stress. While some Stress is a normal part of life, at the moment the levels of Stress can be very high. When you feel Stressed take a minute to breathe deeply in order to relax your mind and body. Be vigilant and try to avoid unnecessary stressful triggers, whether they are thoughts, people or places. Meditation. Schedule a daily Meditation time where you sit down for ten or twenty minutes and simply focus on your breath and your breathing. Your mind will wander quickly and often. When it does, gently return to the Breath and the Breathing. This Meditation may appear difficult but it is easier than you think. There are many good Apps available, Try Headspace or Calm.
Double diffusion occurs when the fluid density depends on two components that diffuse at different rates (e.g. heat and salt in the ocean). Double diffusion can lead to an up-gradient buoyancy flux and drive motion at the expense of potential energy. Here, we follow the work of Lorenz (Tellus, vol. 7 (no. 2), 1955, pp. 157–167) and Winters et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 289, 1995, pp. 115–128) for a single-component fluid and define the background potential energy (BPE) as the energy associated with an adiabatically sorted density field and derive its budget for a double-diffusive fluid. We find that double diffusion can convert BPE into available potential energy (APE), unlike in a single-component fluid, where the transfer of APE to BPE is irreversible. We also derive an evolution equation for the sorted buoyancy in a double-diffusive fluid, extending the work of Winters & D’Asaro (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 317, 1996, pp. 179–193) and Nakamura (J. Atmos. Sci., vol. 53 (no. 11), 1996, pp. 1524–1537). The criterion we develop for a release of BPE can be used to analyse the energetics of mixing and double diffusion in the ocean and other multiple-component fluids, and we illustrate its application using two-dimensional simulations of salt fingering.

However, O’Neill has indicated he is open to discussions with the 37-year-old, who has hinted he might like to return, as he plots the way forward after taking over from Giovanni Trapattoni. Millwall’s David Forde is currently the man in possession having replaced Sunderland’s Keiren Westwood, who took over the number one spot after Given’s retirement. Westwood is facing months on the sidelines after undergoing shoulder surgery, leaving Darren Randolph and Rob Elliot as Forde’s understudies when the squad last met up in November last year. Keane, who is manager Martin O’Neill’s assistant, will watch the Teessiders in their Sky Bet Championship clash with Charlton at the Riverside Stadium. Given, whose loan spell at Boro from parent club Aston Villa is due to expire at the end of next month, retired from international football after the Euro 2012 finals with 125 senior caps to his name. Press Association Roy Keane will be at Middlesbrough on Saturday as Ireland run the rule over veteran goalkeeper Shay Given.
