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.
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.

“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.
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.
"We can't fear the past. Fear is a future thing. And since the future’s all in our heads, fear must be a head thing."
-- Tom Payne
It helps to understand that fear is usually a projection into the future. We typically fear what MIGHT happen rather than what is happening now.
Susan Jeffers notes that 90% of what we fear usually does not materialize. So replace your images of disaster on the TV screen in your mind with awareness of what is really happening. And don’t allow your thinking to change channels.
"I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me."
