The Power of PMA
shape your life with a positive attitude

Nothing else contributes as much to one's sense of well being and health as a positive mental attitude. A Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) can make a crucial difference to our lives. The difference between brooding over our problems and moving ahead; between living in the shadows and claiming a place in the sun, between wallowing in self-pity and helping others overcome.

In the sphere of health, nothing can contribute as much to a sense of well-being as a positive mental attitude. "I feel healthy, I feel happy, I feel terrific," is one of the slogans advocated by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone in their influential best-seller Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. They recommend one to develop the PMA philosophy. "Prepare for any possible emergency. Always have something to live for. Never abandon hope", are some of the principles.

"He has lost the will to fight, to live" is a statement one hears often. Sometimes, doctors are baffled. While one patient succumbs easily to a particular disease, another makes a miraculous recovery. The miracle is often effected through PMA. While Negative Mental Attitude (NMA) spells defeat and death, PMA represents life and achievement. It is the wonder drug that enables the severely disabled to participate in the Olympics, travel across the world and climb the Everest. Here is to your Positive Mental Attitude in this New Year... because Attitude Determines Altitude.

Have an excellent day.

YOUR MIND

The Desire To Win Is Everything
Max Steingart


Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is. Success is connected with continuous action.
It's largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.

You're not finished when you're defeated, you're only finished when you quit. The most important quality essential to success is perseverance.

It overcomes almost everything, even nature. You can have a fresh start any time you choose, for your "failure" is not in the falling down, but in the staying down.

It's not over until it's over. If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try again. If you've got the courage to stick it out, you can win.


YOUR BODY

Water Works
drink up to keep energy flowing

“You need to keep drinking water to replace the fluids you’re losing.”

Sweat acts as your body's air conditioner, helping cool your body's core temperature and muscles, which can generate eight to 10 times more heat during exercise than at rest. Drinking plenty of water - staying hydrated - during exercise, whether it's a run on a treadmill or a session with weight machines, keeps your cooling system running right and your muscles working at top form.

Humans sweat more than any mammal and, under normal conditions, you'll lose about one to two quarts of fluid for every hour you spend exercising. You need to keep drinking water to replace the fluids you're losing. Besides cooling the body, water helps your cells absorb minerals, vitamins, and glucose, the all-important muscle fuel that allows you to exercise.

Water and your workout
Staying hydrated is one of the most fundamental performance goals for any exerciser. It's important to drink fluids before, during, and after exercise. For optimal hydration, you need to:

Drink at least 20 ounces of fluid two hours before your exercise session. This provides the body enough time to absorb what it needs and excrete the rest.

Drink another eight ounces of water 15 minutes before you begin exercising.

Bring a water bottle to your workout.

Drink during your workout. While exercising, consume a cup of water every 15 minutes. Don't rely on thirst. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already be two quarts of fluid below normal and in a dehydrated state.

Drink after your workout, but weigh yourself first. While the scale may show a post-exercise weight loss, it's not body fat that's been lost, but water. To regain proper fluid levels, drink a pint of water for every pound of weight that's been lost.

Keep yourself hydrated! Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.

YOUR SPIRIT

How Can I Serve In The New Year

"God has no other hands than ours."
-- Dorothee Solle

"One act of beneficence, one act of real usefulness, is worth all the abstract sentiment in the world."
-- Ann Radcliffe

"Past the seeker as he prayed came the crippled and the beggar and the beaten. And seeing them... he cried, ‘Great God, how is it that a loving creator can see such things and yet do nothing about them?’... God said, ‘I did do something. I made you.’"
-- Sufi Teaching

"To learn to get along without, to realize that what the world is going to demand of us may be a good deal more important than what we are entitled to demand of it -- this is a hard lesson."
-- Bruce Catton
