Once you’ve updated your phone, you’re ready to start working out with the Fitness app. To get started, open the app and tap the Continue button at the bottom of the screen. The application will ask you to provide your date of birth, height, weight, etc., but it is not mandatory to fill in this section. Next, you’ll be prompted to set a daily move goal, which is the number of calories you’re burning. You can choose to set a light, moderate or high goal based on your activity level or activity level – and the app will assign you a movement goal. Now your app is officially ready to use.

Whirlpool and music for perfect meditation https://adroberts.net/whirlpool-and-music-for-perfect-meditation/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 18:45:36 +0000 https://adroberts.net/whirlpool-and-music-for-perfect-meditation/

Sufi practitioner and meditation expert Meera Ekin took FICCI FLO members on a spiritual journey during a session held recently in the state capital. During a three-hour session, she talked about the art of meditation through music and swirl during a group number.

“We follow the Mevlevi order of the Sufi poet (Jalal al-Din Muḥammad) Rumi and the learning I received from the teachings and meditation progression of my Guru Anantaji (Garg), followed by the Advait teachings, the Zen process, Osho meditation and more. Here we first prepare the body for the best, followed by Sufi whirling (an act of meditation) and chanting (zikr),” shares the expert from Bangalore.

During the spinning, known as Sema, they presented Khwaja Mere Khwaja…. “It’s a way to connect the heart, body, mind and soul with the divine. Such group performances add energy, but ultimately it’s a solo journey,” says Ekin.

She guided the members not to believe in duality. “You and God are not two entities as such…in fact, everything is divine and one. Whirlwind, satsang, discussions, introspection and meditation are the means to go beyond the mind – the state of meditation. The human mind is very unstable and it easily transports us to various places, even during meditation. Listen, we can’t control our mind and thoughts because things will surely come and go, but we have to believe that what the mind says and shows isn’t always true and control leads us to ultimate meditation. adds Ekin.

Lucknow Chapter President Simu Ghai says, “The Dervishes’ meditation techniques have filled our hearts with divine love. After two hours of preparation, the limbs swirled for about an hour. Our members enjoyed the session and learned a lot from this session. “

  • Rates on 5-year fixed rate loans averaged 15.94%, down from 15.05% the previous seven days and from 14.88% a year ago.

Whether a personal loan is right for you often depends on several factors, including the rate you may qualify for. Comparing several lenders and their rates could help you get the best possible personal loan for your needs.

It’s always a good idea to comparison store on sites like Credible to understand how much you qualify for and choose the best option for you.

Here are the latest personal loan interest rate trends from the Credible Marketplace, updated monthly.

Personal Loan Weekly Rate Trends

19-september-tendances-personal-loans.jpg

The table above shows the average prequalified rates for borrowers with credit scores of 720 or higher who used the Credible Marketplace to select a lender.

For the month of August 2022:

  • 3-year personal loan rates averaged 15.03%, down from 11.04% in July.
  • 5-year personal loan rates averaged 16.52%, down from 13.72% in July.

Checking your rates will not affect your credit score.

All Credible Marketplace lenders offer fixed rate loans at competitive rates. Since lenders use different methods to assess borrowers, it’s a good idea to ask for personal loan rates from multiple lenders so you can compare your options.

Current personal loan rates by credit score

sept-19-bar-chart-loans.jpg

In August, the average prequalified rate retained by borrowers was:

  • 9.05% for borrowers with a credit score of 780 or higher choosing a 3-year loan
  • 30.84% ​​for borrowers with credit scores below 600 choosing a 5-year loan

Depending on factors such as your credit score, the type of personal loan you are looking for, and the repayment term of the loan, the interest rate may differ.

As the chart above shows, a good credit rating can mean a lower interest rate, and rates tend to be higher on loans with fixed interest rates and longer repayment terms.

How to get a lower interest rate

Many factors influence the interest rate a lender can offer you for a personal loan. But there are steps you can take to increase your chances of getting a lower interest rate. Here are some tactics to try.

Increase credit score

Generally, people with higher credit scores qualify for lower interest rates. Steps that can help you improve your credit score over time include:

  • Pay your bills on time. Payment history is the most important factor in your credit score. Pay all your bills on time for the amount owed.
  • Check your credit report. Check your credit file to make sure there are no errors. If you find any errors, dispute them with the credit bureau.
  • Reduce your credit utilization rate. Paying off credit card debt can improve this important credit score factor.
  • Avoid opening new credit accounts. Apply for and open only the credit accounts you really need. Too many serious inquiries on your credit report in a short time could lower your credit score.

Choose a shorter loan term

Personal loan repayment terms can vary from one to several years. Generally, shorter terms come with lower interest rates because the lender’s money is at risk for a shorter period.

If your financial situation allows it, applying for a shorter term could help you get a lower interest rate. Keep in mind that the shorter term doesn’t just benefit the lender – by choosing a shorter repayment term, you’ll pay less interest over the life of the loan.

Get a co-signer

You may be familiar with the concept of a co-signer if you have student loans. If your credit isn’t good enough to qualify for the best personal loan interest rates, find a co-signer with good credit could help you get a lower interest rate.

Remember that if you are unable to repay the loan, your co-signer will have to repay it. And co-signing a loan could also affect their credit score.

Compare rates from different lenders

Before applying for a personal loan, it’s a good idea to shop around and compare offers from several different lenders to get the lowest rates. Online lenders generally offer the most competitive rates and can be quicker to disburse your loan than a physical establishment.

But don’t worry, comparing rates and terms doesn’t have to be a tedious process.

Credible is easy. Simply enter the amount you wish to borrow and you can compare multiple lenders to choose the one that suits you best.

Hospitality: welcoming foreigners | Cape Cod Daily News https://adroberts.net/hospitality-welcoming-foreigners-cape-cod-daily-news/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 19:10:49 +0000 https://adroberts.net/hospitality-welcoming-foreigners-cape-cod-daily-news/ Hospitality is the foundation of Benedictine spirituality. Saint Benedict insisted that hospitality is one of the highest values ​​for monasteries, writing:

“May all arriving guests be received as Christ.” Rule of Saint Benedict 53:1

The “guest” can be a stranger, a friend-to-be, members of our community who are marginalized, or our closest friends and family. Hospitality involves being truly present to others, being aware of their needs and challenges, and responding to them with respect as much as possible. For our loved ones, we must welcome each other again and again, forgive each other as we grow together or apart, give each other grace and space as we grow. Recent news has caused me to reflect on the importance of extending hospitality to the health of our minds and to the souls of organizations, communities, states and countries; consider how I have given and received hospitality, and how it has been refused by myself or others. Inadvertently or intentionally, we often do not welcome others. We are human – busy, thoughtless, oblivious – it is forgivable, but what we have witnessed – immigrants lured to an unknown place with the promise of shelter and work – goes beyond the denial of hospitality. Diana Butler Bass writes about Radical Hospitality in her Cottage Sunday Musings, commenting on the appalling news that “immigrants are lured from a San Antonio shelter by the Governor of Florida and shipped to Massachusetts because some sort of stunt politics is deeply cruel. the use of people in distress for political purposes. And the mirth and amusement this episode inspired among self-proclaimed “Christian” politicians was nauseating… A church on Martha’s Vineyard was home to unexpected arrivals, “unwitting angels,” as guests worthy of treatment worthy, is a testimony of kindness and generosity, a vision of the world as God intends it – to practice hospitality towards strangers. I encourage you to read his letter which includes an excerpt adapted from his book, A People’s History of Christianity: The Other Side of the Story (2004). She “points out that NO ONE can call themselves a Christian unless they practice hospitality to strangers…If every religious community were like a swarm of bees, running to meet the displaced, the lost, and the unexpected strangers with equal pleasure, the same zeal, and eagerness as the early Christians. Theologian Letty Russell once noted, “The word for hospitality in the Greek New Testament is philoxenia, love of the stranger. Its opposite is xenophobia, hatred of foreigners. Philoxenia turns strangers into friends.

What a difference philoxenia would make a difference in our world — and in our politics — right now.

I also offer excerpts and links to other thoughts I have written on hospitality: Hospitality to Friends Friendships, old and new, are a treasure, a gift of hospitality and a welcome from other in your life. Friendships create a space to come home to, an opportunity to be fully seen as who we are and who we want to become. Friendships are an opportunity to accept another’s hospitality as well, to see ourselves through the eyes of our special friends. Friendships with women are part sisterhood, part mothering, part chair counseling, part spiritual direction. The Cell Phone Problem We need to look away from our cell phones and all the distractions of a busy life long enough to remember the Benedictine value of practicing hospitality. Being hospitable is our chance to respond to God’s great generosity to us. Hospitality is being present to others, taking the time to appreciate the presence of the other and being attentive to what the other shares. Humor is the hand of hospitality Hospitality can be different from one situation to another. It could be opening up your home to someone else or serving a meal, but it could also be cracking a joke to break the ice or ease some tension. Humor is the hand of hospitality. Hospitality and Icon of the Holy Trinity Fr. Thomas also gave us a special gift, a replica of the icon of the Holy Trinity by Andrei Rublev. A religious icon, picture or image, communicates a deeper spiritual meaning often used in prayer and meditation for Christians around the world. It was a special image for him, used as a holy card for his ordination and his first mass in 1992. our new home. The three angels in the icon symbolize the three strangers whom Abraham welcomes into his tent in Genesis.

Abraham’s Visitors

The Lord appeared to Abraham by the oak of Mamre, as he sat at the entrance to his tent…he saw three men standing near him. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them… He ran to the herd, chose a tender and choice calf, and gave it to a servant, who quickly took it prepare. Then he took curds and milk, and the calf that had been prepared, and set them before them, waiting for them under the tree while they ate (Genesis 18:1-8). ]]>
