Keep-Calm-And-Have-A-Good-Day-Baby

What’s good people!

Just a quick one today…..

Our health is very important and without it we cannot go very far in life as it’s our health that keeps us strong and in a state of balance…I feel this is something we can all agree on…

Hence why I thought it would be important to share this chart with you all today. (Do your own research on this one, as many charts vary!)

ACID VS ALKALINE

There are some MAJOR misconceptions within the health industry, some that I have found out recently which are rather shocking to say the least. I look to share this with you guys in due time. For now, enjoy the chart and educate yourselves, friends and family.

Keep being the best version of YOU and no one else 🙂

Love as always.

Wassup people,

How’s everybody doing on this fine Monday.

The weekend is over and we are back on that Monday cycle.

Most people dislike Mondays and for a good reason LOL – You’ve just had a few days of freedom and now you are back to that 9-5 grind! Early starts, late finish I hear some of you say. I know how it goes. But there is light at the end of that tunnel, trust me!

That’s why you gotta try and find something that you love or at least find bearable.

I find that what helps us go through in life is setting goals. It adds depth to day to day living. Rather than just grinding to live, we are also working towards something rewarding.

 

A goal could be anything from loosing weight to saving up for a new car.

 

But when setting goals, a lack of motivation will hold you back and can be seen as a measure of how far you can take that goal.

The video I want to share with you guys today is a video that somewhat changed my life back in 2011.

 

I had no direction in my life. I was lost.

 

I’ve shared it on here before previously, but the message is so powerful that I felt the need to share it again in hopes that you can take something from it (and some of you may not have seen it before)

 

 

Motivation is your friend if you allow it to be…

 

Powerful right…(That’s if you watched it of course LOL)

Had a guy feeling like I was in Church in one of them American movies LMAO 😀

Anyways, that’s me for today…

I hope you enjoyed the video 😀

Have a Great Week, Stay Strong and Keep Grinding!

What’s good people!

BEFORE I START – A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL WHO FOLLOW ME!

NEW AND OLD FOLLOWERS! YOU GUY’S ARE MY INSPIRATION AND KEEP ME GOING!

It’s been a long time I know…

I hope everybody is well and Happy Belated New Year!

New Goals, New Success, New Money, New Job, New Relationships – Now is the time to embrace the new. If you’re into Numerology, they say that it is the year of the 1 which represents new beginnings!

I haven’t written anything in ages – I’ve been working full time and trying to balance out my life since moving home last year. Blogging had to take a side step whilst I got my priorities in check. Plus I needed time to get my mind right…

But it is a New Year and I am feeling better than ever and I hope you are too.

At the start of the new year we all need some Motivation, especially mid week where things can get a bit tiresome. So I hope you find the below video helpful whatever your situation.

Keep strong my people, stay motivated and keep pushing through even when life seems all down hill – There is light at the end of that tunnel (44)

I love you all…

Hello My Good People,

How are we all doing on this fine day. Summer is now officially here and the BBQ’s have started, the tops are coming off and the music is pumping out of those car stereos.

Welcome Back Summer 🙂

I hope you are all doing extremely well, sticking to your goals, enjoying life and trying to live stress free.

I know this can be difficult at times though as we do live in a negative world – But surround yourselves with good people, stop watching the media (it show’s nothing but negativity – would you agree) And do activities which brings you both joy and happiness. I would say this is a great start to cutting of some of the negativity in our lives.

My energy as of late has been towards writing my book/e-book that I am putting a lot of effort into at the moment. Also, I have invested in a microphone and I’m working on creating program packs for you guys to listen to as MP3 files – Great for listening to first thing in the morning, whilst driving to work, at the gym, whilst relaxing or before bed.

Some of the topics I look to cover will include: Motivation, Goal setting, Wealth, Health and Happiness – The basics for any human being to be happy, successful and to live a life with true value.

Today is just a quick post though about “Worrying, Stress, and Clearing Your Mind”

As a people, we tend to worry and over think and this naturally leads us to stress. And as we all know, stress can lead to a number of things:

Stress-free-zone

Say No To Stress

1) Anxiety

2) Depression

3) Lack of Sleep – Lack of sleep within itself causes health issues

4) Physical Illness

5) Poor Mood/State of Mind

So it makes sense that we do all we can do to try and not worry and over think right?

We need to be honest with ourselves and ask the Important question:

“What actually causes us stress”

Only you can ask this question to yourself…

Set aside some time and with a pen and some paper if necessary and write down that which is bothering you…It makes it so much easier and at least you can go back to what you have written down for reflection at a later date…

Once you find the root cause of what is bothering you, then and only then can you slowly start to work through the issue(s) – These exercises don’t work over night. Be patient with yourself and take your time.

“Stress could come from anything in life – Your 9-5 JOB (Just Over Broke), Family Life, Relationship Issues, Low Income or the Simple Act of Over Thinking”

Since I started practising Meditation, my thoughts have been a lot more calm and I am able to deal with day to day situations a lot easier. Meditation isn’t necessarily what you see in the movies though…

You know what I’m on about – Leg’s crossed, Aummm chanting sounds in the background and people dressed as a Buddhist or Monks… Don’t believe the hype my people LOL.

Meditation can simply be closing your eyes for 10-15 minutes a day, either sitting or lying down and just focusing on your breathing. There is scientific studies showing how Meditation works on the Human Anatomy, and I will share this with y’all if interested. You’d be surprised how many benefits there actually are once you do some research on the subject. Some key points on the benefits of Meditation to get you started are:

Meditation

focus-control

1) NEUROSCIENTISTS have found that, after just 11 HOURS of meditation, practitioners had structural changes in the part of the brain involved in monitoring our FOCUS and SELF CONTROL.

2) Research has found meditation to promote ‘DIVERGENT THINKING’ a type of thinking that allows many new ideas to be generated – Talk About Ultimate Creativity.

3) Mindfulness also affects awareness and the FILTERING out of other mental processes during creative tasks.

Worrying is Like Walking Around With An Umbrella On A Sunny Day 

I kid you not, the woman on the TV just said the above quote to her friend on an Australian cooking show that I’ve got running in the background and I just had to post it in here – What a coincidence or was that meant to happen? Hmmmmm.

Without deviating though, worrying can be avoided and this is something I tell my Mum all the time. If you knew me a few years back, you would know that I used to worry…

“A LOT”

But life wasn’t productive for me back then and I wasn’t enjoying my life like we all should be…

So I researched, bought books about stress and anxiety, watched videos, went to seminars and years later, here I am helping others with what once use to be my enemy…The beautiful cycle of life eh 😀

But listen to the irony which just came to me – We all want to be happy and worry free, yet we are the ones creating worry for ourselves…Meditate on that for a moment…

In reality, no one can create worry for you but yourself…Have you ever looked at it like that?

I have a program that I’m creating to help people stop worrying which I’m saving for my book/e-book, but here’s a step by step guide below which I think is genius to help with this issue:

keep-calm-and-say-no-to-stress-4

Learning to Postpone Worrying:

  1. Create a “worry period.” Choose a set time and place for worrying. It should be the same every day (e.g. in the living room from 5:00 to 5:20 p.m.) and early enough that it won’t make you anxious right before bedtime. During your worry period, you’re allowed to worry about whatever’s on your mind. The rest of the day, however, is a worry-free zone.
  2. Postpone your worry. If an anxious thought or worry comes into your head during the day, make a brief note of it on paper and postpone it to your worry period. Remind yourself that you’ll have time to think about it later, so there’s no need to worry about it right now. Save it for later and continue to go about your day.
  3. Go over your “worry list” during the worry period. Reflect on the worries you wrote down during the day. If the thoughts are still bothering you, allow yourself to worry about them, but only for the amount of time you’ve specified for your worry period. If the worries don’t seem important any more, cut your worry period short and enjoy the rest of your day.

I could keep going, but this was only supposed to be a short post LOL – I just can’t help myself sometimes hehehe

I hope you have learned lot’s today, and have found both the video and blog post insightful.

Share with your friends, family and loved ones and let’s all make this world a better place day by day 🙂

Peace, Blessings, and Much Love To You All

NAMASTE

Hey,

How’s it going my beautiful people and what a long time it’s been.

I know I’m 4 months late, but:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

I’ve had a hectic 2014 and it’s been one of the busiest and craziest years of my life. From slipping into cardiac arrest, to becoming a public speaker, to starting my own business and becoming self employed – All from the back of my two Bodybuilding shows and modelling shoot at the end of 2013.

2015 started of pretty wild also, but the storm is now calm and I am able to breathe and continue to focus on the things that I really love to do – What else is life about eh?

I’ve learned so many lesson over the past two years (where has time gone so quickly) and feel that I have grown as an individual that can deliver some new juicy content for you guys over the next few years to come…

Today I have no particular topic in mind, but just wanted to catch up with you all and make it known that I am still about and living well. Also to let you know what I’ve been up to as I’ve had hundreds of emails asking what I’ve been getting up to…

Well,

Something happened to me that I never thought was possible…

I TOOK ON TOO MANY GOALS TOO SOON

Now – Not ever in this life time did I think it would be possible for me to take on too much at one go, as I like to think of myself as a pretty balanced individual. But I made that mistake last year and will forever have the experience with me to help me through tougher or similar situations. (I don’t use the concept of mistakes any more, I simply view them as lessons learned)

Now in life, we all want to be successful, healthy and wealthy (I at least hope so anyway) and this leads us to setting goals, doing affirmations and incantations (an affirmation with emotion and reaction).

Life ain’t easy folks, and we must do all we can do to help us get through periods of tough times in our lives. Here’s a list of a few tools that I use to help me through periods of darkness in my life or to help get me through challenging goals. I hope you will also find them useful.

We Can Get Through Anything in Life – 5 Step Program

Don't Give Up

1) Self Talk – As I’ve wrote before, talking to yourself ISN’T a sign of madness. It’s simply an exercise which can be used when you find yourself down about something. Talk to yourself as you would to a loving child. Ask yourself why you’re feeling tense or uptight. You may find that the answer you receive helps you to ease the apprehension you are feeling at the time. I find this exercise also helps to bring me to a state of calmness if I am ever feeling anxious, tense or nervous about anything.

2) Writing Things Down – Writing things down whether using the “Diary” approach method or simply by just scribbling down your thoughts and emotions on a piece of paper is a good way to release anxious energy and a powerful tool if you don’t want to share your issue with anyone.

Writing yours goals on a piece of paper and having them up by your bed so you can see them everyday is also worth doing and highly recommended.

3) Speaking with People – The good ole days before smart phones, where people use to communicate with each other more face to face or actually speak on the phone LOL. Speaking with like minded people helps you to align yourself with that positivity energy needed to get you through that dark spell. Try to build a good circle of people around you that can be there to help you when you need them most.

4) Read Books/Articles – Remember guys, we now live in the DIGITAL AND INFORMATION age where access to information is only a click away (You got that smart phone right LOL)

On a serious note, there are so many books, ebooks, audio books and articles out there that you have no excuses not to better your life. Reading the right books and getting the right information will help you through anything.

A simple search on Google for:

“Self Development”

“Self Improvement”

“Achieving Goals”

“Law of Attraction”

“Motivation Quotes”

Will help you on your path to a better life…

We have a wealth of information out there waiting to help us, we just have to go out there and search for it.

Visualisation-quote-on-beach

5) Visualisation – Visualisation works simply by you envisioning yourself in the position you want to be in life right now. It’s that simple and rather a fun exercise (LOL, I’m sure we all do it sometimes – Better jobs, careers, loving relationships, holidays, new cars – It can be anything that put’s a smile to your face)

Once you’ve had some reflection time and you know where you want to be in life and you have a clear visual representation of this of this in your mind – GO OUT THERE AND GET IT!

AND DON’T LET NOTHING OR NO ONE STOP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY!

My philosophy is this –  We only live one life in these physical bodies of ours, so we might as well make the best of it and do as much as we can whilst we are here (Without taking on too much at once of course LOL)

And Remember

~Tough times don’t last, Tough people do~

It’s been great catching up with y’all 🙂

Stay Blessed and Much Love
