6 Tips to Beginning a Healthy Lifestyle[EXTRACT]
Adopting a healthy lifestyle sometimes requires a support system. Working out can be much more fun when you’re accompanied by someone else. And if you lack self-motivation, a solo workout and healthy eating can be challenging. If you’re ready to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, you’ll need to adopt some healthy habits to help you reach your goals. Here are six tips to help you adopt a healthy fitness and lifestyle regimen.1. Plan your workout schedule. Plan out your weekly schedule just as you would with work. Make yourself and your health a priority. Schedule in workout sessions on a daily basis just as you would a meeting for work. Commit to going to your workouts.2. Get a workout buddy. Family and/or friends are a great place to start. Having a workout buddy can help motivate you, push you and guide you during workouts. In addition, working out with someone else helps keep you accountable. You’re more likely to stay on track when you’ve got someone else counting on you for a workout.

3. Find a class that inspires you. What type of exercise will get you to the gym? What’s most important in the beginning and throughout your healthy lifestyle is to participate in workouts and activities that inspire you to move. Do you love cardio dance classes, body sculpting class or boot camp at your local gym? Determine which activity you would like to do most and gravitate to that activity. In addition, classes are a great way to start working out. Classes provide an instructor that will help motivate you and keep your workouts safe to avoid injury.4. Get involved in an activity or club. Have you ever thought of getting involved in an activity such as tennis, swimming, golf, softball or a running club? Organized sports activities and clubs provide a great environment for working out with like minded people. In addition, sports groups and clubs are the perfect way to keep you interested, involved and on a training schedule.5. Set short and long term goals. First and foremost, it’s important to be realistic with your goals. Whether your goals are to lose weight, improve endurance, excel at a sport or simply to become more active, goals can be a great way to keep yourself on track. Make sure to track your progress as well. Whether you journal your steps toward your goals or create a calendar or use an app on your phone, keep a record of the steps you are taking to reach your goals and by what date you would like to reach your goals. Each person is different and each person’s goals should be specific to you and your fitness level and lifestyle.

Seven Rituals For Living a Fulfilling Life

Seven Rituals For Living a Fulfilling Life[EXTRACT]
The quality of our lives, to a large extent, depends upon how to choose to live it. Sure, there will always be challenges, but that’s just the nature of life. Our overall well being can be shaped by a few simple principles. We can live haphazardly and or we can create an environment that is more conducive to peace and contentment. Listed below are seven rituals you can adopt that will lead to a happier and more fulfilling life.1. Gather with family. The family unit is the nucleus, the hub, in most of our lives. Family is where we can let our guards down and be ourselves. Family is where we can go to share stories, be encouraged and not be judged. Yet, it’s so easy to get caught up in the daily rigors of life and become scattered. It would be great if we could all return to the days of gathering at Mama’s house for Sunday dinner, but for many of you that’s just not feasible. But, if you happen to live in another city or state and can only make it home on holidays, then adopt a family to huddle with on a regular basis. If you’re married (or single) with children at home, make it a practice to eat a meal together each day.

2. Do something you enjoy. Most people really only need an hour or two a day to do something that they really enjoy doing, whether it is reading, watching a ball game, taking a walk, gardening, or just sitting or lying still, thinking about whatever comes to mind. This is one of the most important things you can do to help yourself achieve balance.3. Guard your private time. Trying to juggle all of the demands for your time and attention can be overwhelming. YOU should be at the very top of your list of priorities. When YOU are right everything else will fall into place. If getting time alone is something you would like to make a priority, but you don’t have time, then something definitely needs to give. Don’t allow work and other distractions to intrude on your personal time. Do a little less so that you can spend more time with yourself. Just as you schedule your doctor’s appointments and your parent-teacher conferences, you should put private time on your “to-do” list and stick to it. Carve out time in your day to contribute to yourself. Spend a day at the spa, hang out with your friends, take a long luxuriant bath, or whatever suits your fancy!4. Take care of your body. Regular exercise and healthy eating habits should not be taken for granted. They should be incorporated into your daily life. Come up with a regimen that fits into your schedule. Just walking 30 minutes per day, taking the stairs rather than the elevator or parking farther away from the building are minimal activities than can reap benefits. Whatever you decide to do, apply discipline and consistency.5. Be a giver. Showing compassion for others keeps you humble and demonstrates where your priorities lie. There is no greater feeling than knowing that you are helping to meet the needs and making a positive impact in the lives of others. Giving is just as much a blessing to you as it is to the recipient.

6. Keep your finances in order. When your finances are out of order it can affect others areas of your life, particularly your relationships. There is peace and harmony in your household when the finances are in order. Financial weight will make it difficult to focus on our other responsibilities and keep you from pursuing your dreams.7. Stay connected to God. Attend church on a regular basis. Make it a daily practice to spend time in the presence of God. Set aside at least 15 minutes each morning getting centered before rushing off to work. Prayer and Scriptures will help to keep you grounded in the midst of challenges and chaos encountered during the day. Whisper silent prayers throughout the day and end your day with prayer and inspiration.Practicing these tenets on a regular basis will help to ensure that your life remains balanced. A balanced life is a “healthy” life. If you desire to live a happier and more fulfilling life, start incorporating these seven rituals today.

The Secret to Increased Happiness: Simplify Your Personal and Professional Life

The Secret to Increased Happiness: Simplify Your Personal and Professional Life[EXTRACT]
I haven’t done too much study into it -and frankly, I don’t want to- but it is totally baffling to me why the human race seems to have a tendency for making things more and more complicated.It affects all areas of life, personally, professionally, emotionally, mentally and physically.Some simple examples:
Forms to be filled out and other compliance documentation at offices, by both clients and by staff. The amount of paperwork is just insane. For instance, I conduct training for long-term unemployed; a normal training session lasts 4 hours. The last hour is spent with filling out compliance forms. These will then have to be processed by staff; at least another 30 minutes hour. Just to show that I did what I did, that people attended my training, so funds can be claimed from the government.
We are constantly bombarded by messages to eat more/less, exercise more/less, drink more/less, and take more/less pills and supplements in order to stay healthy. People are working themselves into stress in order to maintain their fitness and vitality.
Airport security: I haven’t seen any security measures being taken away at airports and other transport hubs. More and more regulations are added on instead.
Technology: more and more is possible, which leads to us being contactable and traceable 24/7. And with that comes an expectation of actually being contactable 24/7.
Emotional problems: we diagnose and label more and more behaviour as being symptomatic of some sort of disease, which then obviously needs complex treatment. Before you know it, your active, playful, can’t-sit-still run-around child is considered ADHD.
Doing business: there are stacks of extra rules and regulation businesses need to comply with the even be able to be in business. The amount of “boxes to tick off” is absolutely crazy.
And I could go on and on and on

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
I am not saying that there is no need for all this at all. Obviously, some of the tougher restrictions have valid underpinning (for instance to safeguard us more effectively, or the make sure everyone gets a fair share of the pie). On the other hand, I do think we have become so obsessed with what needs to be avoided, with what needs to be taken into account, with what could go wrong, with what people could do, etc, that we have gone overboard in many ways.The simple answer to this? I wish I had it. I am well aware that changing things on a macro/global scale is a virtually impossible task; there are just too many moving parts to “just” bring about change.What we can do is bring about change on a micro-level. Simplify. Simplify. Simplify.Combine this with a healthy dose of common sense, and you will be well on your way to leading an effective, unrestricted, and stress free(-ish) life.The best way to start this process off is to break every seeming issue or problem down into its most basic components. What is REALLY going on? What is the core issue at hand, without all the “extra bits”? Breaking your problem down to its core often is the first and only necessary step to its solution. When you take away all the add-ons, all the extra bits and pieces, oftentimes the problem isn’t actually that big. It’s just that it looked big. Fluff can add a lot of unnecessary stuff.Once you have found out what the real issue is, there may still be remaining “sub-issues” left. Regarding those ones, ask yourself: “whose problem is this?” Is the problem one that’s under your control, or is it something you cannot control at all (like the stock market, or the real estate market, or the weather). Scrap all thinking about issues that you cannot control. Thinking and fretting about them will NOT ever bring them under your control, so you might as well -as I say it- leave it up to the Universe.From the elements of the problem that ARE under your control, which one is the easiest to deal with to get you some instant results? Sometimes just ringing a person for help can be a major piece of the puzzle. Or putting all the paper work regarding the problem in a nicely organized folder. Or doing some quick research that could assist you with finding an answer. Stay away from thinking that you have to eat the elephant in one bite. Start at the tail or the trunk.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Finally, give yourself enough time to get the job done. Too often we think we have to solve problems right here, right now. That is not always possible, and you shouldn’t want to either. Quick, band-aid type solutions may cover up the symptoms, but generally turn out very nasty underneath. Do what you can, and wait for the “paint to dry”, so to speak. After that it’s time for the next step, etc.With all the modern technology at our disposal, life has become faster. We are supposed to do more and more in the same time. On top of that, rules and regulations that have to be addressed to actually get things done are getting tougher and tougher. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of room for a common sense approach and practical “let’s solve the issue” applications. And trust me, from my time as a lawyer, I know that rules are oftentimes not strictly adhered to anyway, in favour of practicality.With that in mind, aim to simplify your own business and life as much as possible. There are elements you cannot control -that’s just how life is; make the ones you DO control as easy and practical as possible. This will make your life a whole lot easier, and easier to digest.

Are You a Fitness Dropout? 4 Ways To Stay Delinquent

Are You a Fitness Dropout? 4 Ways To Stay Delinquent[EXTRACT]
How many times have you started a new fitness regime, only to be derailed after a week or two? Every Sunday do you vow to start fresh on Monday morning and by Wednesday, you’re so done with it all? Do you make a yearly New Year’s resolution to get in shape and by the end of January, you are eating Ding Dong’s again and snacking at midnight?Here are 4 creative ways to keep you completely off track and away from attaining a consistent healthy fitness level.Tip #1: Don’t make any goals.Goals are silly. Just wander aimlessly from day to day. Goals might cause you to actually achieve them and we can’t have that, can we? Writing them down and posting them on a mirror would make it even worse because it would remind you daily of what you want to accomplish. Remember, your goal is not to accomplish anything – it’s to stay overweight, tired and unhealthy.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Tip #2: Consistently choose the wrong foods at the wrong times. Choose foods high in fat and simple carbohydrates so your blood sugar can have crazy highs and lows all day; that way your energy level can dip frequently. Eat piles of pasta, rice and potatoes at night – that will plump you up real good. Eat potato chips at midnight with a soda. Don’t eat breakfast and for lunch, load up on that white bread. After all, if you eat six small, healthy meals a day, you might have enough energy to do all you need to do.Tip #3: For goodness sake, don’t exercise. That might cause you to burn calories and it might even increase your heart health. Stay off that treadmill…don’t get on that bike. If you do, you could build up some “feel good” endorphins and actually end up liking it. Exercise could also cause you to build some muscle and God forbid you should do that – it might change your physique for the better.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
Tip #4: Stay away from your supportive friends. They might encourage you to stay on track. They might tell you the truth about your sagging health. If you just stay away from your supportive friends, you won’t have to hear their encouraging words and heartfelt concern. Try to do this all alone.Now, you have the tools to be a fitness dropout. Put them into practice and you will never make any progress…guaranteed!
