MANY WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TOWARDS BUSINESS SUCCESS!!!

Entrepreneur-Success-1024x562

There are internal and external motivators. You are in charge of your internal motivations but it is also very important to have external human motivators who push you in the same basic direction that you want to go.

The best motivator is to surround yourself with competent talented humans who share in your vision of what your company should be. You can’t succeed alone no matter how confident you are or how much you believe in yourself so surrounding yourself with confident, competent, and talented humans is essential for long duration business success.

You must understand what your weaknesses and strengths are and hire personnel who complement your weaknesses and make for an overall strong company. The other approach is to minimize your weaknesses by personal effort but this is time consuming, there is no guarantee that you will succeed in strengthening your weaknesses, and in business time is of the essence so hiring someone with strength in your weak category is often the smartest quickest approach.

Perhaps the second most important motivator is an ability to remain optimistic through some failures which are inevitable in a growing business enterprise. Understanding that failure is an opportunity to learn what not to do is very important in any enterprise. If your vision is clear and functional then most failures will not put your company on the verge of bankruptcy.

Motivating yourself to overcome the fear of failure or pushing yourself into decisively acting in the face of some uncertainty is vital to business success. Remaining confident and decisive in the face of adversity and beyond is essential in any growing business. Believing in yourself and your vision is important to maintain, especially at times when it seems almost everything is conspiring against your success.

If you have emotional intelligence then that is very important but to stay motivated you need good role models to learn from. Read about successful entrepreneurs and imitate their good points and network with other successful entrepreneurs who can give you some important vital advice on what to do and who to further associate with. Business ultimately is a human enterprise and you need relevant input from other successful business humans.

Consuming healthy food and drink, getting enough exercise, and enough sleep is vital to staying in peak optimistic performance mode.

Geoffrey James gives an extensive list of how to stay motivated in a business in this link.

10 HABITS WHICH SHOULD INCREASE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY!!!

Productivity-Tips-For-Bloggers-Who-Work-At-Home

Have a clean orderly desk or work environment. Clutter or messiness means more time looking for what you need. After you finish a task file away what you may need in the future and discard everything else.

Schedule your time which includes family time or time away from work. Scheduling is a major way of staying efficient and there is no reason why you shouldn’t continue the good efficient habit away from work. By scheduling you will usually find some time for everything of importance in your life.

Prioritize your tasks based on importance and deadlines.

Break up large tasks into smaller ones if possible.

Eliminate distractions which can mean not answering phone calls, just simply closing the door, or posting a do not disturb unless it is an emergency sign.

Don’t procrastinate but start on important tasks or assignments as soon as possible.

Take 10 minute work breaks every hour or two during which you can meditate, close your eyes and think, exercise in place, or eat a healthy snack.

Reward yourself after completing some difficult task with a work break.

Use technology wisely. Use calendar and scheduling apps and check your emails only about 2 or 3 times a day unless you are a salesman or manager. Stay away from time wasters like Facebook and Twitter.

You need to recharge your batteries if you are working smart and hard so try to eat healthy organic food, get enough exercise, and get enough sleep at night so you will feel refreshed and energized in the morning.

THE TRUTH ABOUT RUNNING*

f167687b598b4deb85a33a0af8d0083c

The cheetah lifespan is from 10 to 12 years and sometimes as long as 17 years in captivity. The predatory shark which mostly cruises and bursts into momentary action to catch prey has an average lifespan of 20 to 30 years. The migratory wildebeest lifespan is about 20 years. The lumbering or slow moving elephant lives to about 70 years. The slow Galapagos tortoise lifespan is over 100 years.  The average pope lives to be about 86 years old and many do not have an active exercise routine to keep them healthy.

We can infer from these lifespan facts that the fastest sprinters live the shortest lifespan, the marathon running wildebeest lives longer or about 20 years, and the slow elephant and slowest large tortoise lives the longest.

In effect, if you run or exercise very fast much or do much marathon running then your joints and body will wear out much faster. If you lead a relatively slow paced life with mostly walking and sitting still then your life will generally be longer unless you eat unhealthy food which will lead to metabolic deterioration sooner than with healthy organic food.

The primary wear and tear on your body comes from too much exercise, too stressful a job, and too much unhealthy food. What is too much? That sometimes is an individual question to be answered because you can abuse your body if you have good genes and get away with much more abuse than if you have bad genes and abuse your body the same way.

Running as a way of life is foolish and if you do it at all then it should be in moderation such as slowly running for 5 to 10 minutes once in a while, sprinting fast for about 2 minutes once in a while, and fast walking for about 20 minutes about three days a week.

If all you do is housework then that is usually enough exercise for the average human. The average human is not a body builder nor an extreme athlete so we should not base our exercise routines on what they do to stay in normal physical form all the time.

If you want a technological comparison then you must know that the heart of a racecar, its engine, does not last very long when driven at fast speeds. Usually the faster the speed the more quickly the engine will wear out due to high heat, friction, and very fast moving parts.

The lesson is to do something fast in moderation but don’t become a fanatic about it if you want to live a long life and healthy life with good genes and eating as much organic food as you can afford.

One example does not prove the rule but my dad was a cooperative manager, tailor, led an active life moving around, almost never ran, walked routinely in his retirement years for about 30 minutes each day, didn’t smoke, drank occasionally, and lived to a ripe old age of 99 before his bladder gave out from wear and tear.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PLAYFULNESS+

i_love_playfulness_walldecal-r21fb537dfdb54b648a852218740ce29a_8veny_8byvr_324

Playfulness: n. doing an activity(s) which is primarily entertainment and seldom achieves a serious and/or an efficient utilitarian goal(s) other than exercise and/or doing a sport(s)

Many animals and young offspring play and it primarily is a form of exercise and helps physical and mental coordination. With play you can frequently learn how skillful or coordinated you are relative to other offspring and in nature it is frequently a testing ground for dominance in pack animals where the strong and coordinated usually dominate.

Motor skills are improved and refined during play and for humans it is frequently a form of entertainment or recreation. Some humans make money playing sports so to them it becomes a very serious business or professional enterprise and can be called work and not play although they may derive much satisfaction from it.

Adults enjoy playtime even though it frequently takes the form of watching other humans play, especially offspring or athletes.

Education is usually a serious activity but it has been shown that if you can inject playfulness as part of the education process then you will better succeed at motivating students to learn. Adding humor, making a game out of the subject material, or just rewarding achievement with playtime is an efficient way to educate and motivate students.

THE TRUTH ABOUT LIFESPAN+

long-life2

While accidents, disease, radiation, toxic chemicals, addictions to drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes, and dangerous or very stressful jobs can make you die prematurely there is considerable disagreement as to what can potentially extend your lifespan. Reducing caloric intake or not eating as much has proven that in rats it can extend your lifespan minimally but all other techniques are not proven.

Your best bet at living a long life is eating healthy organic food, exercising moderately, and not getting involved in dangerous or very stressful occupations or activities. Heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimers are almost inevitable diseases for most humans and if you don’t get any of the big three then chances are great that you will die of old age or natural deterioration.

Sometimes organ replacement will add a few more years if your organ has been prematurely damaged and needs replacement but it will not make you live much past your genetic predetermined lifespan.

Lifespan is primarily genetically determined or you are born to potentially live to an approximate age provided that you don’t do any of the things which can make you die prematurely. Life extension is a billion dollar industry and there are many charlatans trying to convince you that they have the secret to longevity. The truth is that you have an inborn lifespan predetermined at birth and there is very little which you can do to change it.

Yes, there are rare individuals who eat crappy food, don’t move around much, smoke and drink much booze and live quite long but they are the exceptions to the rule and it is a lifestyle which I wouldn’t advocate for longevity for the average human.

LIST OF 13 IMPORTANT BAD HABITS AND GOOD ONES TO REPLACE THEM WITH!!!

all-bad-habits-start-slowly-zig-ziglar

Ideally you should quit cold turkey on bad habits, especially the very bad ones, but unfortunately you are deriving some satisfaction from them and the best realistic alternative is to cut back on them or spend less time on them and to gradually replace them with good habits.

Realize that most bad habits are not a question of yes or no or of doing them or not doing them. The real understanding and truth is that you should have as little of the bad habit in your life as possible. A little of the bad habit does not necessarily have terrible bad consequences and sometimes even a moderate dose of the bad habit is perfectly understandable and acceptable.

 

BAD HABIT: Eating too much of the wrong food:

GOOD HABIT: Eat and drink only when hungry or thirsty even if this means once a day. Start gradually replacing or adding varied organic food to your meals.

If you snack during the day or after work then try snacking on nuts, seeds, fruit, vegies, and meat jerky.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with healthy foods. If you don’t like the taste or it seems tasteless then add your favorite spices, dips, or dressings. Flavorings which you like the taste of will make almost anything healthy which you eat just as satisfying as the overly processed food and fast food which you are used to eating.

If you are hooked on sweet food then try replacing it with sweet natural fruits whenever the urge for sweet food arises. Eating chocolate once in a while or any sweet treat once in a while is not a serious health offense.

 

BAD HABIT: Talking too much

GOOD HABIT: Spend less time less frequently talking to gabby humans. Talk mostly to humans who are important in your life and spend very little time on the rest.

Learn to talk briefly, concisely, and to the point and try to listen more and talk less. Don’t be afraid to interrupt a conversation which is becoming too boring or change the subject to something more interesting.

Social media is the same thing. Limit your frequent communications to humans who are important in your life and only respond to others if they have something new or interesting which they are trying to share.

 

BAD HABIT: Going into debt or impulsive and excessive shopping

GOOD HABIT: Set aside or save about 10% of your monthly income for emergencies such as car repairs, home repairs, medical emergencies, etc. so you don’t have to go into debt.

Before you buy make sure it is something you need and not just want. Ask. Can I do without it for a week or month? If the answer is yes then don’t buy it.

Make lists of things to buy and then don’t do any impulse buying but stick to the items on your list to buy.

Check the things that you have already bought to see if they will satisfy your need to buy something. You may be surprised by how much hoarded items of clothing and kitchen items you have which can be reused again.

Learn to budget your money or break it down into categories and try not to overspend in the category on a monthly basis. If you have allocated a specific money amount for entertainment per month then try not to exceed that limit.

Try to remember the unit prices of grocery food and try to comparison shop always before making up your mind to purchase an item. Try to get the best deal or best value per price paid.

For organic food price should not be an issue because tasty organic food is always the best buy. You will pay more but usually you will eat less off it and the long duration value to your good health is priceless.

 

BAD HABIT: Being stuck in a bad job

GOOD HABIT: Switch to another employer with the same job or learn new skills and knowledge necessary for a new and better job.

 

BAD HABIT: Not sleeping enough

GOOD HABIT: Plan your sleep time so you almost always get 8 or 9 hours of sleep. Prepare for sleep by winding down before sleep with sex, calming music, meditation, a boring show, or soothing shower or bubble bath.

 

BAD HABIT: Smoking too much

GOOD HABIT: Switch to e-cigarettes or smoking a pipe or cigars or don’t inhale the cigarette smoke when you do smoke. You can also try meditation or exercise each time you have an urge to smoke and remind yourself mentally how bad smoking is for your health and well being.

 

BAD HABIT: Watching TV or gaming too much

GOOD HABIT: Be selective in what you watch and only watch something which you really like. Limit your viewing or playing time to not more than about an hour a day. Instead of TV go on the internet and try learning something new and hopefully interesting and useful.

If you are addicted to one genre such as sports then try expanding your interest into other areas such as organic gardening, landscaping, wood or metal working, 3D printing, house repairs, investment, and cars and try becoming an amateur expert on the subject.

 

BAD HABIT: Drinking alcohol too much

GOOD HABIT: Drink a wide variety of beers or low alcohol content drinks  and try drinking for the taste of it and not the buzz.

 

BAD HABIT: Too many medicines or drugs

GOOD HABIT: Start eating healthy with as much organic food as possible, drink healthy with unsweetened drinks, and get some moderate exercise.

Your body will eventually try to cure itself having the right natural chemicals and movement.

Before popping a pain pill try to discover the cause. Is it is too much stress, overwork, or doing the same thing for too long? You will frequently discover what to avoid or do differently the next time and it is far better than popping an instant cure pill which doesn’t cure anything but just masks the symptoms and may even make the situation worse with bad side effects ready for more pill “cures”.

Start replacing medications with homeopathic remedies and see if they have fewer side effects which artificial drugs are notorious for.

If you are suffering from depression or other mental problems then the solution is frequently a change in lifestyle. New and better friends and not mind altering psychiatric drugs with terrible side effects which often make the situation worse. Pills almost never address the true cause of your problems which is frequently the shitty eating and drinking, and the shitty environment and lifestyle that you are living in.

 

BAD HABIT: Living in a messy environment

GOOD HABIT: Clean up regularly and put back some order in your life. It is frequently true that a messy environment leads to a messy disorganized problem filled life.

 

BAD HABIT: Associating or interacting with bad, depressed, unhappy, pessimistic, and badly addicted friends

GOOD HABIT: Start looking for and start replacing those bad friends with optimistic, happy, and smart friends but remember that you too will have to improve yourself in the process and change to more optimism, happiness, and smartness if you want to keep those new good friends in your circle of acquaintances for longer than a day.

 

BAD HABIT:  Too much pornography 

GOOD HABIT: A sexual relationship with a significant other should be your goal. Too much pornography will ruin healthy relationships with a significant other with unrealistic sexual expectations.  The good habit is a healthy real sexual relationship with a human.

 

BAD HABIT: Too much gambling

GOOD HABIT: The gambling should be for fun and not profit. Trying to make a living from gambling is only possible for some very talented clever experts with outstanding memories who know how to beat house odds and not for those that believe gambling is just a matter of good luck or being lucky with the odds heavily against you.

 

CONCLUSION:

Many of us eventually get stuck in a rut of old bad habits which lead to a rather boring hopeless depressing situation. The key to getting out of such ruts in the first place is to maintain an active curiosity and desire to learn new things and have new experiences rather regularly.

If you have an interesting life thinking about many things, experiencing them, and keeping up to date with your knowledge then you will make an interesting conversationalist with humans that you meet. You will frequently have something in common to share or talk about.

When you stop trying to improve yourself then you begin to die as a human emotionally and sometimes even physically. Expand your intellectual horizons beyond the brainwashing media and poor role model celebrities. Do research on your own and discover some interesting topics to think and talk about. Yes, you probably will need a dictionary at first to get used to the buzzwords but once you learn what they mean the rest is rather easy.

I am interested in almost everything outside of sports and religion and have an opinion or two about almost everything. I have blogged for about two years now and have never had a dull moment even though I was on the computer researching and writing sometimes as many as 12 hours a day. Yes, I have a life outside of blogging but my blogging has helped make me a wiser man in everyday life too. Sharing this lifetime of useful knowledge is one of my ongoing passions. Enjoy!

THE TRUTH ABOUT HEALING*

Feng-Shui-Healing-Environment

Usually healing is thought of as either the healing of the body or mind when in fact total healing means a healthy body and a healthy mind combined.

An unhealthy body does affect the mind in devastating ways and can lead to depression and feelings of desperation and hopelessness.

A mentally ill mind or severely addictive behaviors can ignore the vital necessity of eating healthy food and getting enough exercise and thus also cause an unhealthy body.  Add to this the bad side effects from psychiatric drugs which cause real chemical imbalances in the mind and this can even make your mental illness worse in the long duration.

You may have a dysfunctional personality brought on by childhood abuse and/or neglect and may have been victimized by bad relationships with bad humans with their own history of abuse or bad addictive behaviors.

If you are messed up mentally then chances are great that most of the humans in your life have also been messed up and you have imitated many of their bad behaviors.

Modern fast paced society expects instant healing or cures which frequently only mask the symptoms and heal or cure nothing.

Feel depressed? Pop a feel good pill or get high on a drug and get instant relief.

Feel tired? Gulp down an energy drink and get instantly energized.

Feel pain? Pop an over the counter pain killer and the pain momentarily goes away or decreases in intensity.

Do you have a non-life threatening infection? Pop an antibiotic pill. 

Do you still feel depressed, tired, or are in pain the next day? If you do then pop some more pills or drugs.

You are on a treadmill of self-destruction and you don’t even realize it and the predatory drug and predatory beverage companies are making an incredible profit at your expense and not helping your overall health one bit.

Unhealthy food and drink, not enough exercise or movement, bad childhood, bad adult friends, bad habits, and a terrible job can make your life a living nightmare.

You can’t change a bad childhood and bad habits are incredibly hard to change but you can eat healthy food and drink, get enough movement in your life, try and find better friends, and try to get or retrain for a better job.

All this will take an incredible amount of selfcontrol and determination but ultimately you are responsible for changing your life from an unhealthy to a healthy one and heal your body and mind in the process.

Stop blaming others for your bad health but start blaming yourself and then motivate yourself to do something about your bad health.

Don’t know where to start? Start reading and researching the internet for advice on how to change bad health habits after you identify the bad ones which you have. Search my blog by keyword and get reeducated in the things which should really matter in your life eg. food, exercise, bad habits, etc.

AN EXAMPLE OF A RETURN TO BASICS IN PSYCHIATRY AND NOT PUSHING PILLS OR DRUGS!!!

Mental-Disorders

I am pleased to see that a return to basics or healthy organic eating, drinking, moderate exercise, sleeping naturally, and living healthy lifestyles is being shown as a realistic alternative to pill popping of psychiatric drugs for a majority of so called sick patients with bipolar disorder. This advice should go much further and be propagandized as a potential cure for most depressions, anxiety disorders, and other vaguely defined psychiatric behavioral not chemical “disorders” unless you are talking about insufficient good chemical food nutrients and too many bad chemical food ingredients which can cause metabolic imbalances and impaired natural mental functioning.

Using artificial drugs or natural drugs in too great a quantity or for too long then you are also messing with your metabolism with a high potential for inefficient brain functioning.

This puts the responsibility of living well right back into your lap, puts much of the historical blame to a large extent on bad psychiatric advice and drugs, and reinforces the importance of the basic four priorities in life which is healthy varied nutritious organic food, healthy drinks, moderate exercise, and enough natural sleep.

What the article doesn’t say is that being honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, competent, somewhat caring, and faithful will improve your bad social lifestyle. Good social interaction is also important for many and is something which many don’t have. Many socially stress unnecessarily without knowing how to make improvements in relationships and suffer much mental anguish.

Yes, parents and bad role models are largely to blame for dysfunctional social lifestyles which can’t be changed overnight but even here with enough self-control, determination, and proper guidance and encouragement you can make some constructive progress even as spoiled adults. Proper guidance and encouragement takes much time, energy, and money after a crisis so don’t wait for a miracle to happen in your life because proper guidance and encouragement is reserved for the financially well off in this society. You may have to live with a shitty personality but you can be a healthy shitty personality if you don’t ignore the four basics of healthy living and it is almost a guarantee that you will have almost no health crises in your life other than injurious accidents.

THE MOST IMPORTANT PRIORITIES IN LIFE: HEALTHY FOOD, HEALTHY DRINK, MODERATE EXERCISE, AND ENOUGH SLEEP!!!

cropped-healthy-lifestyle-logo

Rich or poor we all need healthy food, healthy drink, moderate exercise, and enough sleep. Even if you are poor or on welfare then you can still budget your time and money and afford good food, drink, can move around, and sleep well. You may have to cut back on impulsive inefficient shopping for other life’s seeming necessities but with enough self discipline you can decrease spending on luxuries which only seem like necessities and you can decrease the quantity of food and drink consumed and concentrate on eating quality nutricious food in lesser amounts.

If you are unhealthy and stressed out or depressed and were not born that way then chances are that you are not eating healthy, drinking healthy, getting enough sleep, and not moving around enough. Even if you are a social recluse or social “failure” then you can still be a healthy one if your four primary needs are met.

Most animals in nature eat, drink, exercise, and sleep and stay healthy unless they are pack animals who depend on others for their food supply and would starve otherwise. Humans are pack animals but they seldom starve because they get fed and so are entirely capable of living on their own without having to socialize as a necessity.

Our western society is getting increasingly unhealthy and dysfunctional social behavior and addictive behaviors are frequently being blamed as the primary causes for bad health. While dysfunctional social behavior and addictions can be contributory causes to bad health the fact is that few are eating healthy food, drinking healthy, moving around enough, and getting enough sleep.

Too many artificial drugs are being used to fall asleep, feel good, escape reality, help us socialize, and mask illnesses brought on by bad nutrition causing many bad side effects which frequently lead to taking more artificial drugs to cure the incurable circumstances. Psychiatrists, drug companies, and drug pushers are making a killing selling addictive drugs with bad side effects which are then treated with more drugs.

Is insomnia one of your problems? Check the side effects of your illegal as well as legal drugs because they are notorious for disrupting your sleep habits, especially psychiatric or mind altering drugs.

Nutrient deficiencies in overly processed food, lopsided intake of sugar and artificial sweeteners, and traces of many unhealthy artificial additives resulting from factory and mono culture farming has ruined the quality of food and drink for many humans. Their number one and two priorities are not being met. The sooner we all switch to eating a wide variety of certified organic food and drinking drinks not artificially sweetened, the sooner will the health of the general population improve.

CONCLUSION:

A pill or drug to instantly solve every problem in society is the dangerous myth which is devastating so many lives in western society. If you have a dysfunctional personality then you will not find a quick fix  with a feel good drug but you can at least try to make sure that your primary four needs are being met without any artificial drugs being added to the healthy mix of the big four.

FIND AND PRACTICE GOOD HABITS TO REPLACE OR DECREASE THE BAD ONES!!!

good-habits

We all have many bad habits which have become part of our everyday lives and if we eliminate them from our lives then what do we replace them with to fill the void? Replace them partially or totally with good habits.

In a nutshell the good habits are

eating and drinking healthy,

moderately exercising or moving around physically,

financial responsibility,

working smart and hard,

having good relationships with important humans in your life,

improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

and taking time out to think about the priorities or goals in your life and making small adjustments as needed or drastically changing the priorities in an emergency or crisis situation.

In a nutshell the bad habits are

eating and drinking unhealthy,

not exercising or moving around much,

financial irresponsibility,

working stupidly or doing the minimum amount of work,

having bad relationships with important humans in your life,

not improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

not taking time out to think about and readjust the priorities or goals in your life,

not being prepared for emergency or crisis situations,

and being trapped in bad addictive chemical behaviors.

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

Addictions are usually thought of as addictions to a chemical substance frequently accompanied by severe withdrawal symptoms but processed food and drinks are also filled with lopsided chemicals some of which humans are addicted to such as sugar, caffeine, and carbohydrates. The withdrawal symptoms are sometimes increased anxiety and cravings for the food or drink.

I like to think of important bad habits as addictions to important bad behaviors with withdrawal symptoms similar to food and drink or noticeable increases in anxiety or craving for the bad behavior. The truth is that good habits are also addictions which you can develop a craving for. The choice is yours. Which addictions do you want in your life?

Sexual and gambling addictions or compulsions can do much harm to their addicts who definitely develop cravings for the bad behavior habits when isolated from them. Not everyone gets addicted to compulsive shopping, promiscuity, pornography, or gambling so if one does it a little or sometimes does some in moderation then it can’t be considered to be an addiction or bad behavior all the time or in every instance.

In a crisis situation you may have to go cold turkey or exclude the bad habit completely from your life. Realistically most bad habits are eliminated or reduced in small steps with good habits eventually getting lengthier time wise and more frequent and gradually replacing the old bad habits.

If you are eating unhealthy then start introducing tasty healthy organic snacks and eventually tasty healthy organic ingredients into your meals. Even organic food and drinks are not always tasty so feel free to add your own spices and sugar free sauces to the organic food and drink to suit your taste.

Keep gradually increasing the frequency and quantity of the organic food and drink. Eventually the tasty healthy organic food and drink will replace much of the unhealthy food and drink in your life if you unrelentingly persist in your goal of more healthy eating.

Sure society is so structured that becoming an organic fanatic is not only expensive but hard to do, especially with meat, and if you indulge in unhealthy eating once in a while then don’t feel guilty about it because it will not kill you or ruin your health dramatically.

Unfortunately the herd instinct or doing what others around you are doing is a very compelling force and it is very hard to overcome. This is why you should seriously consider finding new best friends with more good habits which you hope to get and leave behind your old best friends with the old bad habits which you have and want to get rid of.

If your best friends eat unhealthy, don’t exercise, are financially irresponsible, don’t like to work, have bad relationships with important humans, and have severe chemical or behavioral addictions or compulsions then the chances are that you will never rid yourself or decrease those bad habits in your life.

Birds of a feather tend to flock together and if you find yourself a member of a group of humans addicted to many bad habits then the situation for improvement is hopeless unless you miraculously become an independent selfmotivated good habit fanatic and live a life of relative seclusion or isolation.

Many humans have large egos and feel that they have almost no bad habits to get rid of. Knowing what a bad habit is or selfawareness is the first step on the road to a better you!!!!!!

Even after selfawareness you may feel that you are getting too much pleasure or satisfaction from your bad habits to want to change them. That is why the freedom to choose is such a heavy personal responsibility for all adult humans and many choose wrongly in the short duration and end up in misery in the long duration with bad health, financial bankruptcy, bad relationships, a bad lifestyle, and sometimes even death.

All good and bad habits start in childhood so you are truly at an unfair or unjust advantage if you have parents, relatives, childhood friends, and teachers with many good habits who serve as good role models.

THE TRUTH ABOUT STRESS

stress-at-work

Working too feverishly, having too much to do, making many mistakes, having many serious problems in life, having too much responsibility, too much worrying, and having unhappy relationships can all cause unhealthy stress levels.

Job stress can sometimes be decreased by trying to schedule your time better and spending more time on important priorities and spending less time on relatively unimportant priorities. Taking some time out to plan ahead and work in a controlled orderly way is much better than working relatively randomly and chaotically which is what stress frequently originates from.

You relieve stress by taking some time out to do stressless things or by living more responsibly. If responsible living and working does not relieve severe stress on the job or in family life then the only option may be to change to a less stressful job or to get a divorce.

Daily stress relief may mean taking some time off to meditate, think about happy things, exercise, a bath, a massage, listening to music, or viewing a movie, video, or the TV. Getting enough sleep is frequently priority number two after eating and drinking healthy. To handle stress optimally you need to recharge your body with good food and good sleep on almost a daily basis.

If humans in your life are causing you stress then try to avoid them as much as is possible or read up on relationship books or articles which make suggestions on how to improve your relationship skills. Change your philosophy from “everything that you do annoys me” to “most of the things that you do don’t affect or phase me”.

Stress: n. (personal and/or human(s) demand(s)) and/or (environmental demand(s) and/or pressures) which affect an organism’s complete reaction(s)

THE TRUTH ABOUT EXERCISE

1047

All you need to know is when to exercise, how much to exercise, how to exercise, where to exercise, with whom to exercise, and what exercises to do.

You may get enough exercise on the job or doing housework so you may not need to set aside time to exercise in a formal way. When you have a break during your sedentary job or after work you can do the exercising.

Unless you are a determined body builder on a daily schedule of exercise then you don’t have to exercise every day because it can become very boring. If you have a sedentary job or lifestyle in old age then you should probably exercise about 20 minutes three times a week but not feel bad if you don’t exercise at all for a week or month at a time because when you are young the lack of exercise will not hurt you in the long duration.

You can exercise at a slow pace or you can make it a fast cardio experience by increasing the speed of the exercise or do more repetitions of the exercise per minute.

You can exercise in the office, on land, or in the water.

The exercising may be done alone or with someone in pairs or as part of a team.

Unless you are a muscle builder natural forms of body movement are the best which don’t use artificial devices or exercises which accomplish something useful such as gardening or doing housework.

Natural body movements which are walking, running, deep knee bends, toe touching, situps, climbing movements such as climbing on a chair and then down again or walking up and down stairs, push-ups, sitting on the floor and getting up from it, jumping in place or doing jumping jacks, and lifting weights with feet and hands are the most useful natural body movements.

In the water swimming and diving are the best forms of natural body movement.

Of course natural body movements can be rather boring to do and you may want to participate in an individual, pair, or team sport. Windsurfing, surfing, canoeing, jet skiing, dirt bike riding, skiing, skating, bowling, golf, aerobics, yoga, and martial arts moves are things which you can do on your own. There are also pair and team sports but it is not always reliable and convenient to have to depend on someone else for a regular exercising routine and individualized sports are by far the best reliable alternative.

You can invest in a treadmill to exercise by walking fast or running when the weather is either too hot or too cold outside.

If you are elderly and can only sit in a chair or lie in bed then you should be exercising on a daily basis for about 20 minutes to avoid stiffness of the joints or minimizing arthritic pain by slowly and/or rapidly moving your arms, hands, feet, head, and torso if possible.

Finally stop believing the myth that exercise will help you to lose weight because it won’t!!!!!!

CONCLUSION:

Most humans don’t exercise at all because they are too lazy or get enough movement on a daily basis so they really don’t need a regular exercise routine to participate in. Individual rather than pair or team sports are the best because you don’t have to depend on someone else to get in your exercise quota.

Agility exercise with natural body movements is the best which will nicely tone your body no matter how heavy you might be and keep you fit and healthy if you also eat healthy food and drink.

THE FITNESS INDUSTRY IS SCAMMING GULLIBLE HUMANS

Fitness Myths
Here is a reprint of an article posted May 15, 2012 by momentmatters which outlines the
tricks used by the fitness industry to get you hooked on their product or service with the
mythological miracles they promise you like weight loss, hot looks, and miracle diets.
Posted on May 15, 2012 by 

The fitness industry has a spur of growth these recent years, due in part to illnesses like diabetes and obesity. And of course, thanks to Hollywood we all want to be hot. And that’s the promise of the Fitness Industry, be it a club membership or DVD take-outs – you will be hot and sexy when you buy their products and services.

You decided to join a fitness club. On the facade you saw beachfront bodies, hot, sexy, and sizzling! Expectedly, models are the lean and muscular ones. It doesn’t mean that they got fit in that gym, but seeing them makes you believe. Admit it, most people are visual people. Seeing what you want to be is enough to persuade you.

You may or may not notice, but the trainers are marketing savvy. You signed the contract and gave them permission to bill your credit card. Often times, they still make you choose your personal trainer. And you’ll see, some are more expensive than the others. Paying them more doesn’t guarantee you better results. It’s still all you, you do the work for your own body, not the jam-packed trainers themselves.

The next step is to measure your current fitness or health status. How can you know if you are obese, overweight, fit, or underweight? They measure your BMI (body mass index). This scale, created by the US government is flawed! It’s purely based on height and weight but what about fats proportion? What if you just have huge bone density that adds to your weight? And all other considerations are not accounted. According to this scale, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Michael Jordan are all overweight. However, it’s the most popular and easiest measure. But if your BMI surprised you, you may just have the body of Brad Pitt.

They offer the services of in-house nutritionist. They will give you a tease, and make the nutritionist assess your diet for the first time and recommend some changes. Diet and nutrition is common sense. Eat what the caveman eats, all natural and avoid processes and you’re good. Paying extra for nutritionists or books is expendable.

You got started. The leeway to steadfast weight trimming and strength building is the equipment and machinery. But you and your trainer will spend less time in it. Instead, your trainer will drive you to “stability balls, resistance tubing or bands, and balance tools”, more on exercises you can’t do alone. These trainers are told to veer away from constant use of equipment, because when the person learned how to use them (and it’s damn easy to learn), they won’t need trainers and will stop the service.

It’s a psychological game! They get you psyched up in the start, then when it’s been months and you do the same exercises over again, they intervene and re-psych you up to keep you paying the membership. It’s an industry, meaning a business. It doesn’t care if you get healthier or leaner. What it cares about is your money.

Their programs may not work out for you, really. Our genetic makeup is part of the equation, but would they say it? No. They trick you to believe what the best looking body is, but each of us look at our best differently. And then they promise you that the best way to achieve it is through their gym.

If you noticed nothing’s changed, or at least on the timeline they promise you, it’s also planned out. They’ll say that despite the program, diets and supplements they served, it all falls down to individual differences. It didn’t work out for you because it isn’t right for your body, and you keep on finding what works for you. Yeah, you’ve gotta pay them more.

Their gym is a breeding ground for germs, thanks to the sweaty bodies all around. From athlete’s foot to flu, they have it. And these clubs, if not all of it, are not mandated by law to handle medical emergencies. Some trainers can’t even do CPR. Thing is, we are prone to injury when exercising. And heart attacks, due to improper exercise or overexercise, will need immediate help in matters of minutes.

Fitness industry doesn’t have a federal regulation to keep private data. Doctors, psychiatrists, lawyers, all these professionals are ruled by law to preserve nondisclosure of any private information you shared with them. But the fitness industry doesn’t have that, and unfortunately you have to share your medical history to them at the beginning of your program. Be prudent as these people are free to gossip about you.

It’s hell hard to terminate a membership. Even if you communicate that you want to quit, chances are you signed a contract in day one and they’ll keep earning from you credit card even after you stopped. You better read before you sign, because if you sue them, they just present your signature and they win.

Sure, there are people who got their magazine cover body, and fitness clubs helped them. But not all trainers are qualified to be one. Their management will employ many to meet the sky high demand, and see for themselves if they’re good with being a trainer. If not, oh well, drop him and get another.

Even the professional and ethical can’t escape the demands of business, and what kept their growing bank account are some tricks here and deceit there to get you excited and believe all the miracles they claim.

I’m not implying that we quit our membership. Our body will always clamor exercise, and their services shot straight to that humane need. But you deserve to know all their secrets; and you can be fit at home, at work, at school, at Disneyland park, wherever.

THE TRUTH ABOUT LAZINESS

laziness-cure

Laziness: n. using a minimum amount of energy on many actions causing delay and/or slowly doing a delegated action(s) which frequently requires more speed and more energy

There is basically physical and mental laziness and it is mostly society which promotes both forms of laziness culturally and if you are a victim then you are only partially to blame for it.

Physical laziness conserves body energy and is a very efficient way of surviving which the body frequently prefers. Only about 3% of the adult population exercises regularly unless you consider physical labor on the job exercise which will increase that percentage somewhat. The second reason for physical laziness is the sedentary culture which promotes the physical inactivity of its citizens.

There is a saying that a body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion when not physically tired.

Young offspring are physically active but by the teenage years this physical dynamism has been reduced by cultural emphasis on physically passive schooling and computer, TV, and cell phone usage.

Not all humans are as physically coordinated as the best athletes and many are disappointed with school sports because it makes them feel inadequate physically so they choose not to participate in sports because sports are seldom emotionally rewarding for the average human.

Our minds are still active even though we are couch potatoes but physical activity has been conditioned out of us culturally.

Most of us enjoy watching physically active or dynamic human personalities and events which are not boring. Most of us do not prefer watching physically lazy humans if given a choice.

If you are physically lazy then you can blame yourself but a boring unfulfilling job which doesn’t pay much and living in a city may limit your choices of being physically active in a non-boring way.

Not having a good memory may make you poor at schoolwork or having too good a memory may make schoolwork very boring.

Not succeeding at difficult largely USELESS schoolwork may make your mind lazy and not want to do anything difficult mentally which will kill your motivation to learn new information which you could successfully use in your life. Poor education or lack of USEFUL education and brainwashing by the media and commercials is the major reason why most citizens are mentally lazy with little motivation to improve their many bad mental habits.

Little logical reasoning ability is taught because of a heavy dose of liberal arts keeps humans stupid and lazy mentally by making them learn largely USELESS information which they don’t use in life. They are not only trapped physically into inactivity but their USEFUL mental activity is also very minimal and lazy intellectually.

Garbage information into the brain means garbage information output by the brain and makes the brain mentally lazy because very little makes sense and can be applied to real world living experiences. One glaring example of this fact is that many high school graduates don’t know how to budget their money with a calculator and enter the adult world living paycheck to paycheck profligately spending every cent.

CONCLUSION:

If you are lazy physically and mentally then blame it on your lazy parents and the largely illogical liberal arts educational system trying to make education fun and easy but NOT very USEFUL in everyday life as an adult.

WHAT EXERCISE DO YOU REALLY NEED?

stretching-exercise-hd-desktop-wallpaper

It is a great myth that you have to exercise in a gym with artificial machines to get optimal health benefits and lose weight. Exercising using natural body movements to tone your body is all that you really need to stay healthy and no amount of exercise will make you lose weight permanently. 

 

Only a starvation diet will make you lose weight and who realistically wants to starve themselves on a permanent basis? All weight loss programs without starving don’t work permanently so why be disappointed every time and waste much of your time trying to do the impossible current weight loss fad.

 

For all the lazy exercisers walking fast about 20 minutes about three times a week is all that you need. This is a rather boring routine so you can make your exercise sessions more interesting by doing an assortment of natural body movements which stretch your body or even give you a cardiovascular workout.

 

For a cario workout try jumping jacks and make them more interesting by leaping high as you do them or by flexing your knees or body torso as you are doing them. Running in place or jumping as high as you can is an excellent workout which you can do in the house, especially when it is raining or terribly hot or cold outdoors.

 

Pushups, rotating arms, deep knee bends, stomach curls, squat thrusts, toe touching while standing,  standing on one leg, head nodding, and stepping up and down on a stool will exercise your arms, legs, stomach, and neck.

 

If you want to ritualize the exercise then try yoga positions and Pilate’s moves.

 

If you are a senior citizen, can barely stand, and have joint stiffness then repetitively flex your arms, legs, neck, and body from a sitting or lying down position.

 

CONCLUSION:

Save a boatload of time and money by not going to a gym but doing exercise in and around the home. Tone your body with natural body movements and you will be healthier for it. You will not lose any weight exercising but you will be healthier at the weight which you are currently at.

 

Remember, no exercise will make you lose weight but exercising will improve your mental and physical health and that is really the realistic benefit which you should be looking for in your life of good habits to do.

5 IMPORTANT GOOD HABITS TO REPLACE BAD OLD ONES

5-good-habits

Schedule your time:

Most humans waste much time, energy, and money by talking too much or socializing too much, by doing trivial relatively unimportant things in their life, and by spending too much time on bad habits which can be improved. One of the most important things which you can do is to prioritize your life and schedule your time away from work so that you have enough time devoted to the things which you think are most important in your life.

Setting a specific time for doing activities is important so the scheduled routine becomes as automatic as possible or becomes a good habit. 8:30 PM put the young offspring to bed by making them put away toys, showering, and dressing for bedtime. 9:00 PM reeducating yourself by learning new knowledge and skills necessary for a better job. 10:00 PM discuss or do things with significant other. 10:30 relax with entertainment. 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM sleep.

Life is not always predictable and your schedule will be interfered with occasionally and you can adjust the times to fit your desired lifestyle but do try to maintain a regular schedule as frequently as possible and you will be establishing good habits to replace the bad ones.

 

Budget your money:

If you are impulsively spending and living from paycheck to paycheck and never have enough money for emergencies such as car repairs, appliance breakdowns, household repairs, or medical expenses then you should seriously consider budgeting your money. Budgeting your money means planning to spend money on things which you really NEED and not on things which you impulsively WANT. It also means setting up separate savings accounts for future education, retirement, and emergencies.

My evergreen book HOW TO SAVE MONEY can help you with budgeting and money management in general.

 

Learn to eat healthy:

Nothing is better for your health than eating healthy food. You should gradually switch to eating minimally processed unsweetened varied certified organic food as frequently as possible. No one can automatically switch from fast food and sweet deserts and treats but at least don’t eat them as frequently any more. Consider artificially sweetened or food with sugar added to be eaten as a treat only once or twice a week.

Snack on nuts and fruits and bring healthy sandwiches to work if you eat more than once a day which is not necessary for most sedentary jobs. Experiment with your food and don’t be afraid that you will poison yourself if you try to eat something new, especially if it is a new natural organic fruit, vegetable, nut, or grain.

Eating good healthy nutritious food instead of a habit of eating unhealthy overly processed food is going to be the hardest bad habit to break so do it gradually by scheduling to eat healthy once a week and gradually increase it to eating healthy at least 4 times a week.

 

Exercise occasionally:

You don’t have to exercise every day and 20 minutes about twice or three times a week is all that you need. You can even go for weeks and months not exercising at all because many of us get enough exercise doing housework and taking care of the offspring. If your job is very stressful then a regular daily exercise routine may help a little in reducing the stress.

 

Improve your relationship skills:

Learn to be more honest, sincere, and truthful with other humans and you will develop good trustworthy relationships with family, close friends, and acquaintances. Learn how to sincerely care for humans without becoming overly generous with your time, energy, and money.

My evergreen books LOVEALL, MODERN PARENTING, and GOOD MODERN BEHAVIORS can help you to learn what caring or nurturing and protecting means in real life and you will become more respected and admired by the humans which you interact with, especially your family.

CONCLUSION:

Most of us lead very inefficient lives wasting much time, energy, and money which could be better spent elsewhere. Scheduling time for budgeting, healthy eating, exercise, relationships, and important priorities in your life such as education and making them good habits or things which you do on a regular basis will help greatly.

It takes about 3 months before a new habit becomes an automatic good habit so don’t get disappointed if you are not getting instant good results with the new schedule which you are working on. Be persistent and remain as selfmotivated as possible and get other humans, especially your significant other, to encourage you in your new lifestyle changes. Dare to succeed!!!!!!

11 Biggest Fitness Myths

Exercise-Myths1

Here is a link to womenshealthmag.com with an article on 13 fitness myths.

http://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/fitness-myths-0

Two of the 13 fitness myths are actually true for many humans based upon my personal knowledge and experience.

TRUTH: You don’t need to exercise every day and can in fact skip exercise for a week or months and not cause any bad effects on your body. You may not feel as wide awake and energized and relieved of stress if you don’t exercise daily but most of us, excluding old people with muscle stiffness problems, don’t exercise daily and survive just fine.

TRUTH: Working out can make some humans hungry. Some people may not get hungry after a workout, especially if they exercise on a daily basis and have established a standard routine of eating and exercising. I on the other hand from personal experience do frequently feel hungry after heavy exercise because I live a rather sedentary life and don’t exercise or eat on a regular basis. After I suddenly exercise vigorously my body demands food and I feel hungry.

MYTH: You can target your fat burn

MYTH: You shouldn’t work out on an empty stomach

MYTH: No pain, no gain

MYTH: You should stretch before you work out

MYTH: Lifting heavy weights bulks you up

MYTH: Exercise machines beat free weights

MYTH: Running on a treadmill is as effective as running outside

MYTH: You can’t work out when your sick

MYTH: Sweating means your out of shape

MYTH: Crunches are the best moves for your core

MYTH: Running beats walking

13 EXERCISE MYTHS

Young Couple Jogging at the Beach

If you burn about 200 calories working out for about half an hour you are losing 200 calories of fat.

You lose almost no fat at all because your body first uses up its glycogen calorie reserves in the muscles and liver. You may lose very little weight because of water dehydration but you quickly gain back the water weight lost when you drink something. If you are using an exercise machine and it says that you have used up 200 calories that does not mean that you have lost 200 calories of fat.

Exercising turns fat into muscle

Fat cells and muscle cells are located in different parts of the body and a fat cell does not change into a muscle cell when you exercise.

Working on your abs muscles will reduce belly fat.

You will not lose belly fat because any loss in fat is distributed throughout the whole body and just exercising your abs will not only not reduce belly fat but will not reduce fat in your body during exercise. Only much less caloric intake or eating much less will reduce some weight if any and if you are eating more than 500 calories a day you will probably not lose any weight at all.

Stretching is best before a workout

Cardio is best before a workout because it starts blood flow and warms up the muscles preparing them for a strenuous workout and preventing injury. You really don’t need a strenuous workout so cardio and stretching is a waste of time. Stretching after a workout is fine but there is no scientific evidence that it does anything beneficial to your body.

Weight lifting will bulk up women

Women do not have testosterone levels which are needed to build muscle mass so lifting heavy weights will not bulk you up during a regular exercise session.

You need 8 glasses of water daily

Drink only when thirsty because you get most of your water from the food you eat and that will probably be only one or two glasses of water a day.

Going gluten free with energy bars etc. will make you lose more weight

Unless you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, there is no reason to avoid gluten and realistically most gluten free foods have twice the carbs and much more sugar than regular versions of the same food. There is no scientific evidence that gluten affects weight loss.

You are too old to get in shape.

You are never too old to get in shape as long as you can move your feet or arms. If you have never exercised then start off with five to ten minute walks and gradually increase it to about 20 minutes. You don’t have to exercise every day and two to three times a week is usually all the exercise that you need.

You need a long workout

As mentioned in the first myth you don’t lose fat during regular exercise and if you do go and exercise for very long periods of time you will probably only burn about 200 calories per hour or lose about half an ounce of fat per hour beyond the first hour of exercise.

You will get back the fat by only eating about two slices of bread after exercising so there is no point in exercising a long time to reduce weight because you won’t lose weight unless you starve yourself by taking in less than the minimum amount of calories which you need on a daily basis.

You need a gym membership to get results

Weight lifting for 30 minutes will not lose any fat because your glycogen will be burned up first. Any exercise done at home is just as beneficial to your health.

No pain no gain

The truth is that if you are experiencing pain your body is telling you to stop or at least slow down what you are doing until the pain goes away.

Exercising at night interferes with sleep

Exercising before going to sleep makes you more tired and more likely to fall asleep but you do need a few minutes to relax from strenuous exercise just before sleeping. Moderate exercise will not interfere with sleep but strenuous exercise is not recommended immediately before bedtime.

More hard exercise is always better

The truth is that too much exercise of the same kind will burn you out. Your muscles need relaxation and quality varied exercise is better than quantity single type exercise.

NURTURING EXERCISES FOR OFFSPRING WHICH TEACH RESPONSIBILITY AND INDEPENDENCE AS A BONUS

Car-Washing

There are many things offspring can do inside and outside the house which will exercise them and teach responsibility and will help them to lead independent lives sooner, especially when they start living on their own as adults.

The added bonus is that if both parents are working the offspring will be able to take care of themselves and household responsibilities no matter what their gender and will get enough exercise doing so.

All of the following exercise skills can be taught before they become teenagers and if they can’t do so you are not being responsible good teaching parents but overprotective fools.

Walk and/or running with the dog and feeding the dog

Cleaning and refilling the cat litter box and feeding the cat

Taking out the garbage and removing the trashcan from the curb

If you have a yard pulling weeds, raking yard trash, planting flowers and herbs and vegetables and older children can mow the yard and trim bushes

Vacuuming or cleaning floors

Washing windows and provide them with a ladder if necessary

Wash the car exterior and clean the interior (a stepladder can be used to wash the roof of the car)

Preparing and plating frozen food and/or certified organic food and favorite family recipes if there are any

Putting and removing the dishes and tableware into and out of the dishwasher or having them wash everything by hand

Have them put food on the table and then clear the table when finished

Teaching them to shop for food for the whole family in the supermarket and/or health food store

Cleaning kitchen cabinets, kitchen appliances, and the bath room

To gain access to a high microwave, stove, and high refrigerator shelves provide them with a sturdy non slip foot stool, custom made if necessary

Doing the laundry and put away clothes where they belong

Cleaning and organizing their rooms

Supervising younger offspring if there is more than one offspring in the family

Doing individualized exercises like pushups, jumping jacks, squat thrusts, sit ups, aerobic exercises, yoga, martial arts, and family agility training with cotennis as explained in my evergreen book COMMON SENSE.

For those that have the luxury to go out have offspring do swimming, snorkel diving, canoeing, skating, skiing, rollerblading, skate boarding,  and bicycling.

As adults offspring will frequently not have the luxury of playing team sports so individual sports are much more beneficial for a lifetime of healthy personal exercise which can be done anywhere and anytime.

If you teach your offspring all the above skills you won’t have to worry about them living on their own as adults and you will have peace of mind knowing that they will not be living messy and disorganized lives and will be getting plenty of exercise on their own.

10 SPORTS MYTHS AND WHAT THE REAL TRUTH IS

1318525602_kick_demonstration_fail

MYTH: Running barefoot on a hard surface is better than shoes

An unnatural running on a hard surface with bare feet can cause high impact joint and tendon stress which deforms the foot unnaturally spreading the foot and forcing it to be flatter than necessary.

MYTH: 30 minutes of exercise will burn fat

The percentage of energy from fat burning does not appreciably increase during exercise where your body muscles use up mostly the stores of glycogen in the liver and muscles in the body and you will have about the same amount of fat after the exercise than before it. Fat is a secondary source of energy and very little of it gets used during exercise. You will definitely not lose weight due to fat burning but more so due to a depletion of water from your body.

MYTH: Exercise or movement is the best remedy for sore muscles

Sore muscles is your body telling you that you have exceeded your exercise limit and should reduce movement and give time for the temporary inflammation to die down and let the muscle repair itself before embarking on more strenuous exercise.

MYTH: Music helps in training

Energetic music can motivate you to exercise more but you won’t be as sensitive to body cues which are telling you to slow down or rest because you are exceeding the body pain threshold and the music is masking it to some extent.

MYTH: Eat carbohydrates before exercise

Carbohydrates should be eaten much before the exercise and preferably the night before so that the body has plenty of time to digest and store the energy from the carbohydrates as glycogen. For exercise lasting less than 90 minutes loading up with carbohydrates will not affect performance at all so eat a varied balanced meal instead.

MYTH: Take magnesium for muscle spasms

Usually muscle spasms are due to too much muscular stress or stressing poorly conditioned muscles and rarely are partially due to one vitamin and/or mineral deficiency but an overall deficiency in many minerals and/or vitamins so the best remedy is to eat as varied a diet as possible to ensure that you are not suffering from nutrient deficiencies. Test your body blood for nutrient deficiencies before you begin supplementing with lopsided mineral and/or vitamin supplements.

MUTH: Drinking beer after exercising is healthy

The alcohol in beer decreases the testosterone level in the body minimally so it is better to drink nonalcoholic beer or just plain water which is what you have depleted during exercise and is only what you really need. I prefer drinking beer or water flavored with chunks of fruit and herbs such as mint because it creates greater satisfaction. I drink if I feel thirsty after exercising and drink it for pleasure when I am thirsty and not exercising.

MYTH: You should drink much before exercise to avoid dehydration

You can’t absorb more than the usual amount of water into the body during exercise to compensate for the greater amount of water lost due to sweating. Only drink when you become thirsty and at no other time.  Most exercise except for marathon running does not severely dehydrate you and frequently you can even get by without drinking anything at all.

MYTH: Supplements are necessary for peak performance

Most high performing athletes do not use supplements which are lopsided nutrient doses which are unnatural and should really not be a replacement for varied balanced meals of as much certified organic food as possible which should be rich in micronutrients also.

MYTH: There is an ideal ratio of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to eat

Humans are very adaptable and can survive good on a high carbohydrate and low fat and low protein diet and can survive just as good on a high protein, high fat, and low carbohydrate diet.

HOW TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF SOCIETY WITHOUT RADICAL UPDATING!!!!!!

African elephant (Loxodonta africana), herd in pond, largest terrestrial animal, Namibia, Etosha NP

Compared to wild nature human society is extremely inefficient and is paying a high price for it in the form of bad health and destruction of biodiversity through excessive pollution and stealing wildlife real estate.

There are mental problems with much depression and high stress and an assortment of behavioral problems showered with ineffective drugs and misdiagnosed labels called bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and an assortment of phobias and anxieties and sleep disorders.

Bodily health is shockingly bad with diabetes and circulatory problems and cancer and an epidemic of obesity all primarily due to the unhealthy unnatural food and drink which we are consuming in huge quantities throughout the modern brainwashed world.

Wild animals do not have mental problems nor are their bodies diseased and needing to be treated with drugs.

They don’t have sexual problems because they don’t unwisely use much time mating and do not try to make sex an unnatural prolonged entertainment experience the way that humans are doing in this hedonistic world.

Wild animals don’t waste a lot of time communicating with other animals unless it is purposeful communication.

Humans on the other hand use so much time talking about trivial events in their boring lives and waste a lot of time texting and communicating and playing games on the cellphone and computer.

Wild animals don’t have many friends in general and even pack animals don’t waste their time and energy interacting with individual members for hours without purposeful behavior.

Wild animals get plenty of exercise looking for prey and food and increasingly more humans on the other hand infrequently get out of their sofas and job chairs to move around a little during the day.

Most don’t even go out for fast walks and a minimum cardio workout about three times a week.

Wild animals play while they are young but don’t extend it much into adulthood. While playing they learn important pack rules and how to react with dominant males and females and get plenty of agility exercise improving their coordination and making it better and better as they grow so that they will be able to be agile hunters or strong and healthy foragers in their future hunts for food.

Human offspring for the most part play with trivial video games which don’t teach them any necessary life social skills and skills necessary for future jobs.

They lead boring unmotivated lives going to public schools and learning how to kill time with a thousand and one deviant liberal arts trivial pursuits and lessons in nothing of importance especially topics which will never help them in getting a job after graduation.

They read and read and read mythological literature and textbooks which will minimally help them in the real world.

  1. FOR GOOD HEALTH JUST LIKE THE ANIMALS DRINK MOSTLY WATER WHEN THIRSTY AND EAT ONLY WHEN HUNGRY WHICH CAN BE AS LITTLE AS ONCE A DAY.
  2. DRINK RAW OR PASTURIZED MILK AFTER A MEAL ABOUT TWICE A WEEK AND INCLUDE A LITTLE BLOOD SAUSAGE AND EGGS AND AS MUCH CERTIFIED ORGANIC BEANS AND GRAINS AND FRUITS AND VEGETABLES AS YOU CAN AFFORD TO EAT.

  4. IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE TIME OR ARE IN A HURRY THEN BUY READY MADE FROZEN FOOD INCLUDING TASTY SOUPS WHICH YOU LIKE IN PLASTIC BAGS AND HEAT THEM UP IN A MICROWAVE FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. IF YOU HAVE SOME JUNK FOOD DURING THE WEEK AT ANY TIME OR HAVE SOME COFFEE OR TEA THAT IS PERFECTLY FINE AS LONG AS YOU DON’T EAT AND DRINK JUNK FOOD EVERY DAY.
  5. IF YOU FIND THAT YOU ARE ADDICTED TO ONE KIND OF FOOD EVERY DAY THEN TRY TO STOP IT AND DECREASE IT TO ABOUT 3 TIMES A WEEK AND START REDUCING THE ADDICTION OR EVEN STOPPING AN UNHEALTHY HABIT BY GOING COLD TURKEY AND THEN REPLACING IT WITH A BETTER FOOD OR BEVERAGE CHOICE!!!!!!

WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE DO WE REALLY NEED?

636-01316124

MYTH: A daily standardized repetitive schedule of exercise is necessary for good health.

TRUTH: Young children get enough exercise by moving around all day and they don’t have to run to stay healthy. Teenagers don’t need daily exercise if they move during the day and they don’t have to run. We no longer need to hunt and chase wild animals so running should be necessary in the near future. The best kind of exercise would be to have teenagers work for about 4 hours a day in a safe job in the real world at less than minimum wage. They will get plenty of exercise on the job especially in a fast food outlet or urban farming and don’t need to participate in an exercise routine on a daily basis.

The truth is that one 15 minute open source exercise video can be used to teach basic body conditioning routines for humans who are not athletes.

An exercise routine does not need artificial workout aids such as resistance machines since exercising the body without help from mechanical devices is the most natural and best exercising.  Few people get a kick out of going to gyms and that is their right but the majority of people don’t have to formalize their exercise routine and can do just as well with their own private exercising routines at home. Selfmotivation is essential but this can be indoctrinated in elementary school and by parents who promote selfexercise by example.

One room in the house or a six by six foot free space in a room can be an exercise room where natural human exercise movements can be done without the aid of most artificial devices which build up the body in unnatural ways.  Such movements as pushups and/or squat thrusts and/or sit ups and/or deep knee bends and/or running in place and/or spinning in place and/or jumping jacks and/or jumping up and down instead of jumping rope which limits the degrees of freedom that your hands can exercise during the jumping and/or chin ups and/or an assortment of aerobic moves and/or weaponless martial arts moves should be popular forever.

When doing jumping jacks or jumping up and down don’t stay in one place but move around the room even spinning around while doing them and flex your knees a little and move in many patterns over the floor. Feel free to jump to different heights while doing jumping jacks and make it a nonboring real blast of a cardio workout. Also during the jumping jacks feel free to bend at the waist and twist the torso too and flail the hands around at the joints and bend the elbows. Be a wild and crazy gal or guy and enjoy yourself. That is true utilitarian personal creativity which is so rare in society!!!

Climbing trees is the best way to exercise the body in a natural way but this can be  hazardous and unnecessary to build good body coordination and fitness.

The truth is that nonathletes can exercise thoroughly at home or playing cotennis so there should be no physical education in Public Schools for all students.  Cotennis is covered in this book and is a form of agility training which is one of the best exercises in the world to develop all round health for the whole family.

Team sports are highly overrated as a form of exercise for individuals since most people do not have the luxury of gathering enough team players for two teams when they need or want to exercise.  Exercise is most practical when it can be done alone.  Team sports mostly glorify the athletically talented while most of the other players feel like losers or very incompetent.

Why should most of the student population go through feelings of athletic inadequacy playing team sports when they can be taught to successfully exceed personal fitness goals by gradual improvement and feel that they are truly making personal bodily fitness progress.  I can now do 100 jumping jacks instead of 50 is an objective desirable increase in physical fitness which achieves a sense of real individualized accomplishment which no relatively rare team goal scoring can achieve.

If you are an affluent teenager and have a tennis court available then do some agility exercise by playing cotennis with a family member and/or friend and/or partner.

Adults get enough exercise on the job unless they have sedentary jobs at a desk or computer. Here the recommendation is a speedy walk for about 20 minutes about three times a week. If you skip a week or a month without exercise it will not damage your health if you resume the speedy walking after the long duration. Some people are so healthy that they can go for years without any exercise regime because their lives are active enough with (caring for children and/or doing housework) and/or (shopping and/or visiting friends) and/or (going to public events and/or gardening) and/or etc.

Older people have to exercise their joints moderately if they sit around much during the day and do not walk but mostly sit all day and don’t depart the house for a leisurely walk once in a while. The muscles connecting the joints get stiff if not exercised and begin to atrophy which is a natural result of aging and the body can’t stay in shape without or with minimum movement.

If you begin to feel stiff in old age begin to moderately exercise those stiff joint muscles until the stiffness goes away.  If the stiffness does not go away with exercise then you are really getting old and you should exercise the stiff joint muscles every day to delay the beginning of even greater stiffness.

In old age we will all eventually be chair ridden or bedridden but even then you should not stop exercising the stiff joint muscles which you have so you will still be able to move around in the chair or bed to stay in the best shape possible.

When you are old the best form of exercise is utilitarian exercise. Do the dishes by hand and clean the floors and do the laundry by hand and try growing organic food in your garden if you have one to eat when the food is harvested. Stay as active as you can but don’t devote your time to trivial behaviors which are pointless and waste your time and energy and probably much money if it is an expensive hobby or pastime.
