Ghandi: “There is more to life than increasing its speed”

How you react to stress may influence the relaxation technique that works best for you:

  • The “fight” response. If you tend to become angry, agitated, or keyed up under stress, you will respond best to stress relief activities that quiet you down, such as meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing, or guided imagery.
  • The “flight” response.If you tend to become depressed, withdrawn, or spaced out under stress, you will respond best to stress relief activities that are stimulating and energize your nervous system, such as rhythmic exercise, massage, mindfulness, or power yoga.
  • The immobilization response.If you’ve experienced some type of trauma and tend to “freeze” or become “stuck” under stress, your challenge is to first rouse your nervous system to a fight or flight response (above) so you can employ the applicable stress relief techniques. To do this, choose physical activity that engages both your arms and legs, such as running, dancing, or tai chi, and perform it mindfully, focusing on the sensations in your limbs as you move.

13 Fitness and Nutrition Tips For Your Best Body

You know that diet and exercise are important when it comes to creating your best body, but you may be overlooking other techniques for getting into the best shape.

Turn the following 13 simple tips into habits and watch as your body transforms.

1) Eat a Smart Breakfast.
Most people load up on carbohydrates and simple sugars for breakfast. Cereal, pastries, smoothies and juice are all poor choices when it comes to starting your day off right. Center your breakfast around protein and healthy fat, and you’ll have energy for hours. Try a protein shake, eggs, lean breakfast meat, or a handful of nuts.

2) Get More Sleep.
If you’re not getting at least 8 hours of sleep each night then you could use more sleep. This is especially true if you’ve reached a plateau with weight loss. Give your body the 8 hours of sleep each night and make weight loss easier.

3) Just Do It.
If you’re really ready to achieve your best body ever, then dig down deep and commit. As Woody Allen famously said, “80% of success is showing up.” This is absolutely true when it comes to fitness. Show up to your workout. Even if you’re tired. Even if you’d rather be doing something else. Just do it.

4) Plan Ahead.
Take one day each week to plan your healthy meals for the following week. You don’t have to do all the shopping and cooking on that day, simply jot down what you plan to eat. This small act of planning ahead will keep you on track with healthy meals even when the week gets crazy busy.

5) Cut Out Gluten.
Many people don’t realize that they have a certain level of sensitivity to gluten, which causes intestinal inflammation and bloating. Also, gluten-filled foods are typically high in carbohydrates, which contribute to weight gain. When you cut gluten-filled items from your diet don’t fall into the trap of simply replacing those items with other high-carb items. Choose non-packaged, whole foods instead.

6) Believe In Yourself.
Do you believe that you have what it takes to transform your body? If you want to succeed in weight loss then you have to believe that it’s possible. Give yourself a pep talk and dig down deep for the courage and discipline to apply these healthy changes to your life.

7) Eat Less Dairy.
Dairy products like cheese or cream add extra fat and calories to your meals. Pass on the dairy and you’ll eliminate unnecessary calories, making weight loss quicker.

8) Sleep and Wake at the Same Time.
This tip sounds so simple, and yet it’s a powerful way to increase your daily energy. Get your body on a schedule and watch how much more productive and energetic you become.

9) Include Veggies at Every Meal.
Most people aren’t too crazy about vegetables, and probably eat less than they should. Make it a point to include a vegetable with each of your meals – even breakfast. The increase in fiber and other nutrients will give your body that extra boost that you’re looking for.

10) Ditch Packaged Food.
Throw out those packaged foods! This is one of the easiest things you can do to achieve quicker weight loss results. Packaged foods contain chemicals and additives that will slow your fitness results.

11) Drink More Water.
Being hydrated is key when it comes to creating your best body. Drink water throughout your day and limit caffeinated beverages to once daily.

12) Forget Artificial Sweeteners.
Sure, these sweeteners don’t contain calories, but they are known to increase your appetite and cravings for carbohydrates. In the quest for your best body, put down the diet soda and reach instead for some water.

13) Exercise With a Pro.
Are you exercising as efficiently as possible? Do you challenge your muscles enough during each workout? Are you keeping the routine new and fresh? These are all factors that will be taken care of for you when you work with a trained fitness professional. Working with a pro ensures that you make the most of your exercise time.

So there you have it, 13 tips that will take your results up a notch.

Why are you so afraid of change

What are you so afraid of? Here’s my thoughts on what and why we are afraid of change….
it’s because we allow society to define us. WHAT? Yes.

If we try to change something about ourselves from the inside out, well then we will have to explain to others why did are trying to make a change.

Pick something.

Now think about working on changing that.
Right away, did you think of 1,000,000,000 ways not to do change or do what you want to do? I bet you did! 🙂

If you didn’t then why the hell haven’t you done it yet?

Doh.

Here’s a very personal example of how society worked on defining me and here’s what I did about it and will do about it.

I guess this story is my way of telling the world to keep your opinions to yourself and stop putting crap into other people’s space. It’s not your space to take!

OK, to my story. I spent a weekend in NH about 3 years ago, it was summer and we were at a lovely place on the water, the sun was out, etc…you get the picture.

At that time I was 132 lbs 5′ 7″ and about 18% body fat. BOOM. What does that mean? It means I ate right for my goals, it means I woke up at 4am every day to exercise my heart, my body and my soul. It means I took time to take care of myself. Also, I got so many “wrong” comments and assumptions thrown at me at that height, weight and being that lean….ugh. Does this happen to you, do people try to define you without knowing you? Do you define others consciously or unconsciously?

Back to the place on the water….I was checking in and wearing a v-neck sleeveless workout top to keep cool and comfortable. Just as the Innkeeper was beginning to show us around, he stated – STATED – not asked, not a conversation with me, he stated, “oh, you must be a swimmer.”

Honestly, I didn’t even know that was directed toward me. Here’s why……

1. He put his definition of what [he thought] I do into the space in the room.
2. He put his definition of how I look into the space in the room.
3. He didn’t ask me directly.
4. He didn’t ask period.
5. I CAN’T EVEN SWIM!!!! So why on Earth would I think that he was “talking” to me. He clearly defined me in his mind already as a swimmer.

What a dumbass!

My response when I realized he was “space talking” to me…. “No.”
Him: (….waiting for me to say more….awkward 3-5 seconds go by…for him it was awkward, not me. I was quite confident with my response of no.) “oh.”

And then we moved on to the task at hand, showed me around and get me to my room, thank you.

Do you get frustrated when people define you? There was no way I was going into the description of, I get up at 4am, I eat for my goals, I…blah, blah, blah…you know why? He wasn’t worth it because he already had a story made up, a definition of me. When you define those around you knowing them or not, you screw with their world and space. Knock it off!

Ask people, “Hi there, you are very fit and I am curious how you manage to get it done, do you have a minute to tell me about it?”

I could have been a damn ballerina….

Fitness and nutrition is NOT about how you look, (It’s so sad that society surely defines it that way though) it’s about how you manage your body, mind, soul, chemical and hormonal balances, feeding routines, emotions, health and wellness.

If I had to change again, I would do it because now, I am not afraid to tell people that they are incorrect about who I am, what I do, why I do it, especially when they respect my space and don’t define me. You don’t respect my space, you don’t get my respect.

So, why are you afraid to change when it comes to your fitness, nutrition, health and wellness?

Are people defining you and making you feel like they’re taking your space?
