Envisioning Your Own Well-Being

May 24th, 2013

Reading Level: Leisurely

Are you your own worst enemy? Check what you believe  your life is destined for!

When you envision your present situation and then the rest of your life, what do you see? Do you see a life of continual lack, illness, struggle, and disappointments? Or instead, do you envision that you are destined for a good life, an effective, satisfying life? There is an old saying, “Be careful what you wish for.” Why do people say that? Because there is great power to your thoughts just as there is in your words. People who believe that they are destined for a satisfying, effective life are more aware of the right opportunities when they present themselves.

Metabolism: Speed It Up

May 21st, 2013

Here are 6 easy tips to help you burn more calories and better manage your weight!

These are some excerpts from the footnoted Metabolism article below:

1. Don’t skip breakfast – Your metabolism slows down overnight and will continue to lag if you have too few calories for breakfast.

2. Eat small meals and snacks several times a day – Eating less food at a time but more frequently (instead of more food a few times a day) increases your metabolism.

3. Choose wise food types – Pick foods which are healthy proteins and take more energy to digest, high fiber foods which make you feel full and take longer to digest, soups, beans, fresh vegetables and fruits. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »

Loving Your Life

May 17th, 2013

In each of us is the innate desire to live a life that we truly love.

I read a valuable article which covers many essential aspects of rebuilding your life to be the healthy, effective life that you desire to live. Kim Child’s article featured quotes from 3 life coach experts, footnoted below, to explain how to make lasting changes for a life that you will love. She discovered most effective life makeovers involve starting with (a) small steps, (b) setting boundaries, and (c) reaching out for support. Here are excerpts from the main points in Ms. Child’s article:

First, look at what is already working well in your life.

Even when a person feels like everything in his life must be changed, usually there are some things that are working well which should be noted and appreciated. Life coach Victoria Moran suggests to list 10 things for which you are grateful about in your life each morning before getting out of bed.(1)

Second, take time for prayer, meditation, and/or journaling before the day’s agenda begins.

This is essential to craft a health lifestyle and stay centered [on what is healthful, best, and important] in the midst of change Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »

The Power of Change

May 14th, 2013

Most people fear change; it is wiser to fear the lack of it.

Each of us have areas of our lives in which we need desperately change as well as those in which we greatly desire to see change. It may be in our personal relationships, career, health, spiritual life, or even projected retirement investments. Too often our frustration goes on for years due to one of the main points in the post on Reaching Success, “You have to follow through with a plan.”

Wishful thinking, as opposed to vision casting, will only lead to continued disappointment.

To put an end to the disappointment of a lack of change, one must first vision cast (Create a mental image of the changes you want as well as put them in print.) and then act. Wishful thinking will not accomplish anything. Be aware of how dangerous to your fulfilled life are thoughts such as:

I’ll work in this goal when I have more money. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »

Allergy Relief

May 1st, 2013

Reading Level: Leisurely

Your allergy symptoms can be minimuzed by any of a wide choice of natural remedies.

Yes, it is that time of year again with allergies in full swing!  I researched through some sites to find reputable info on natural remedies for allergy treatment. I’m posting excerpts from 2 sites below. The first excerpts are from a health site called Mother Earth News. The second set of excerpts is from an interview with Dr. Cliff Bassett which took place on Good Morning America. It is significant to note the agreement between the 2 sources for natural allergy relief. Please follow the links to read these articles in their entirety.

These excerpts are from Mother Earth News suggested natural remedies. Please click the above link for their full article.

Neti Pots have been used in India for thousands of years to flush the sinuses…It’s a bit like using nasal spray. [Studies show it is also an] effective way to treat seasonal allergies in children, and markedly reduced their use of antihistamines. Netis are inexpensive and widely available online and at natural food stores. Use about twice a day during allergy season..You also can use a neti pot before bed to prevent snoring caused by allergies and promote optimal overnight breathing. [Find full description for use on the Mother Earth News site.]

Quercetin A natural plant-derived compound helps stabilize mast cells and prevents them from releasing histamine. Quercetin also is a natural antioxidant. The recommended dosage is about 1,000 milligrams a day, taken between meals. It’s best to start treatment six weeks before allergy season. Those with liver disease shouldn’t use quercetin, so please consult your doctor. Immerse Yourself in the Full Healing Contemplation Here »
