Mayonnaise Jar and 2 Cups of Coffee
2008-05-22 19:30:00
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 Hours in a day is not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee. A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the...

2008-05-20 20:53:00
As women enter menopause their bone density decreases naturally. Doctors recommend weight bearing exercise to help keep bones strong.

If weight lifting is your choice of exercise, it is best...

Eggs: No Longer Your Diet Enemy
2008-05-15 23:03:00
For years eggs have been portrayed as a food that you should not eat for fear of raising your blood cholesterol levels. Recent studies have proven that this is not the case and in fact eggs have been found to be a nutritional goldmine. One large egg has 210 mgs. of cholesterol which seems like a lot, but a recent study from the University of Connecticut suggests that even after eating three eggs a day for 30 days, the ratio between HDL( good cholesterol) and LDL( bad cholesterol) did not change. The result is no increase or change in one’s...

Benefits of Antioxidants
2008-03-08 21:44:00
You’ve probably heard a lot about antioxidants in newspapers, magazines and on T.V. While many supplements and nutrients have been talked about for as long as you can remember, antioxidants are a more recent topic. This doesn't mean that they are less important, in fact they are a vital part of staying young and healthy. What is an antioxidant During normal processes, molecules called free radicals are produced in the body. These are basically unstable atoms or molecules that desperately want to become stable. They do this by stealing electrons from healthy cells, making them unstable and less healthy. Antioxidants ...

Exercise – A Natural Insomnia Cure
2008-03-06 22:32:00
We all know that exercise that can help you lose weight and get more energy, but what about helping you sleep? Studies have shown that people, particularly women, who regularly exercise during the day, sleep longer and better at night. So, before you reach for the sleeping pills why not try going for a run, taking a trip to the gym, or signing up for a yoga class. Many people have trouble sleeping because they are overly stressed. The worst part about this is that sleep deprivation can increase your cortisol levels, which makes you feel more stressed. It can...

Beat Tiredness with Grape Juice
2008-03-02 22:19:00
If you work hard all day, you deserve to take a break, relax, and get some rest in the evening but sometimes you just feel so tired that your evenings are wasted just lying around waiting to feel better.  If you are looking for a natural energy booster, then grape juice is a great way to beat tiredness Grape juice helps fatigue by adding iron to your diet.  Iron deficiency is common, especially in women.  It can cause severe fatigue and leave you feeling completely burnt out.  Don’t go for dark grape juices if you are anemic (low on iron).  Dark grape juices contain chemicals that can actually lower the level of iron in your system, worsening the problem.  Stick to white or light grape juice for the best iron boost.  If your feeling extra tired after a workout, you probably need to replenish iron lost from sweating.  Drinking grape juice will not only give you more energy, but also help with muscle fatigue as well.  Have you ever not...

A Balanced Life
2008-02-29 21:58:00
Do you live a balanced life or is your life more hectic than ever? Do you find that you become tired more frequently, lose patience easily, experience moodiness, and are so stressed that you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel? Do you spend less time with your friends than you would like and find that the fun has gone out of your life?  While we tend to think we can do it all, the reality is that we can't.  Many of us repeatedly forego simple pleasures, take on unnecessary burdens and, quite frankly, put other’s needs before our own. This is a recipe for ill-health, depression, and overall sadness.  It’s time to sit down and determine how to live a balanced life. Performing selfless acts is noble, but it takes a toll we may not be aware of. There is nothing wrong with being selfish. While everyone seems to be concentrating on themselves, you are focusing on them.  The first step to a balanced life is to think about you and your needs.  If y...

Treat Colds with with Lemon Juice
2008-02-27 21:21:00
The lemon has been used as a medicinal treatment since the days of ancient Rome and is a popular way to treat colds and other ailments - we still see it as a key ingredient in lots of over the counter medicines today - but why does it work so well? Let’s look at the origin of the lemon to find out. The lemon, like any other fruit, grows on trees. The fruit does not develop from the flowers on the tree, but rather are present with the flowers. Lemon s are thought to be a hybrid fruit—originating from the citron and the mandarin. Lemons have a bright yellow skin that is thick and pale yellow pulp. Lemons are hearty fruit with a strong pungent odor. Now, let’s examine the common cold. Colds are caused by a virus that mutates. The strains of the common cold are too numerous to count which is why we catch so many.  The average person may have two or more colds per year and because the cold is caused by a virus, there is no cure. Modern medicine can only treat the symptoms. T...

Success Goals - One Small Step at a Time
2008-02-23 14:44:00
The best way to achieve goal success is to break them down into measurable steps and the best way to achieve those steps is one at a time. Many huge achievements take months or years of commitment and focus before they happen.  Take Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, he didn't just think “Well, I might take a walk on the moon next week”.  It took years of education; practice; knowledge, commitment and focus before he was even able to board a spacecraft, let alone walk on the moon.  The point is everyone finds it difficult to stay focused on a goal and most of us expect results far too soon.  The topsy-turvy world of self-motivation and wanting everything yesterday is evident everywhere.    Realistic expectations and a positive attitude, combined with small action steps can make your goals more achievable.  How? You must first know and understand your goal. Begin with one specific goal, and write it down often. It doesn’t have to be anyt...

Exercise Plan - Find One You’ll Stick To
2008-02-09 22:48:00
We all know how important exercise is in our quest to stay healthy and that consistency is the best policy - the biggest battle is finding an exercise routine that you can stick to and don't find yourself making all sorts of excuses to get out of!   Here are some tips to help you develop an exercise plan you can stick with. Don’t be drasticMaking an exercise plan is great, but let’s be realistic.  If you’re not a runner and try to run 5 miles a day, every day, you’ll find it hard to stick to the routine.  You should start small and make gradual increases to your exercise plan.  Start by working out 30 minutes a day, three days a week.  Once you’ve stuck to that for a few weeks, then start working out for longer periods, harder workouts, or more days.  Sure, your progress may be slower to start with, but you’re more likely to actually continue progressing.Have some funTreadmills and stair machines are great ways to burn calories fast.&...

True Friends are good for your health
2008-02-07 22:40:00
We all know stress and anxiety are bad for us.  If left unchecked, these emotional problems can have serious physical effects.  We spend millions every year on yoga classes and videos, relaxation tapes, massages, spa visits, and herbal remedies, all in a bid to reduce our stress levels and live healthier lives.  The truth is, there a great and easy remedy for stress relief that costs little no money: go talk to a friend. For years, scientists have been aware of the fight or flight response.  When we are confronted with a stressful situation, our bodies produce chemicals.  These chemicals induce us to either stand up and fight the situation, or run away.  This is how science has always viewed the situation, till now.  The problem with this theory is that it was based on research experiments using solely male subjects.  Scientists believed that men and women responded the same way to stress; however, recent studies have shown that isn’t tru...

Healthy Eating - Yes, it can taste good!
2008-02-05 22:33:00
One of the biggest reasons people aren't big fans of healthy eating is because they worry that it won’t taste good but in reality, if the food doesn't taste good it's because you aren't necessarily choosing the right health foods or need to prepare the food differently.  Just because something is good for you doesn’t mean it has to taste bland or boring.  There are plenty of ideas out there for eating healthy without making sacrifices on taste. Here are just a few of them.  Try new alternativesThe health food market has changed in recent years.  Healthy eating is more popular; so a lot of new products and healthy alternatives are now available.  Next time you’re at a health food store, look around at all the different options.  There are now healthier versions of previously unhealthy foods.  Why not try them; you might be pleasantly surprised with the taste.

Success comes in many forms...

A comment on my last post inspired me to write about how success comes in many different forms and following many different events in our lives. We tend to think of success as something that only follows a positive goal but success is also about how we react to life when it doesn’t go so well. Most of us can relate to loss of some kind, whether we have lost someone close to us, a relationship

...better known as the 80-20 rule, is based on the fact that 80% of what we achieve well is from 20% of what we do. This principle is more commonly applied to business efficiency but can be applied just as easily to any aspect of our day to day lives. Successful people achieve more by concentrating on the 20% that matters. This means that we can eradicate up to 80% of activity during our daily
