I hope our newsletter finds you and your family well.
If you feel tired and jaded and have little enthusiasm for life, it is possible that you aren't making time for fun. We all get into a grinding routine of getting up, going to work, coming home, doing more work, going to bed.
Leisure time is vital in order to keep enthusiasm for the other aspects of our lives. We have a right to this free time but often feel guilty about taking it. Work off tensions by gardening, pursuing a hobby, or joining a club.
Take time to be alone and doing nothing but breath.

Everyone makes mistakes and the busier you are, the more mistakes you will make. The only question is “How well and how effectively do you deal with the inevitable ups and downs of life?”
In this newsletter, you learn the difference between a positive and negative worldview. You learn how to benefit from your mistakes and how to remain positive in the face of adversity.
Blocks As Stepping Stones
On the other hand,
people with a benevolent or positive worldview see the world around them
as filled with opportunities and possibilities. They believe that everything
happens as part of a great process designed to make them successful and
happy. They approach their lives, their work, and their relationships
with optimism, cheerfulness, and a general attitude of positive expectations.
They expect a lot and they are seldom disappointed.
Two of the most common ways to deal with mistakes are invariably fatal to high achievement. The first common but misguided way to handle a mistake is the failure to accept it when it occurs. According to statistics, 70 percent of all decisions we make will be wrong. That’s an average. This means that some people will fail more than 70 percent of the time, and some people will fail less. It is hard to believe that most of the decisions we make could turn out to be wrong in some way. In fact, if this is the case, how can our society continue to function at all?
Cut Your Losses
By remaining fast on your feet, you will be able to out-play and out-position your competition. You will become a creator of circumstances rather than a creature of circumstances.
First, imagine that your biggest problem or challenge in life has been sent to you at this moment to help you, to teach you something valuable. What could it be?
Second, be willing to cut your losses and walk away if you have made a mistake or a bad choice. Accept that you are not perfect, you can’t be right all the time, and then get on with your life.
Third, learn from every mistake you make. Write down every lesson it contains. Use your mistakes in the present as stepping stones to great success in the future.
Work out hard. The harder you work, the more endorphins you release into your system. You might want to schedule your hardest workouts for the most stressful days of your week. If going through an emotionally trying time, consider it an excellent opportunity to up the intensity of your normal routine. Naturally, we must remind you not to substantially increase the amount of weight you're lifting or the intensity of your exercise without consulting your physician.
Work out early. Exercise has a well-known residual feel-good effect, probably due to endorphins that may linger in the system. The duration will differ for each person and each workout, although you can generally count on four to six hours of leftover effect, after which the endorphins will taper off. During unusually stressful times, an early morning workout might help get you through the tough day. But don't push it if you're not a morning person. A lunchtime workout would be fine.
Hit the big muscle groups. The bigger the muscle group you're working, the greater the effort, the greater the release of endorphins, and the more oxygen flow to your brain. On days of high stress, consider spending more time with your squats and bench presses than on your wrist curls and toe raises.
Shed some light on the subject. Scads of research show that sunlight has a positive effect on mood. (Just ask anyone afflicted in mid-winter with seasonal affective disorder.) So open the blinds to your gym. Or, if sunlight isn't readily available, flick on the overheads.
Make some noise. Music you enjoy, whether Beethoven, The Beatles or punk rock, can make your workout more enjoyable and stress-alleviating. So might having a workout partner with whom you can share the excitement of the sport.
Shake it up. The last thing you want to do is add to your stress with boring workouts. Keep things interesting with varying exercises, sets and reps. And if one day you want to skip the gym altogether and do something else, that's fine.
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.
"When humans find themselves surrounded by nothing but objects, the response is always one of loneliness."
-- Brian Swimme
Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning. We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals.
How much time do you devote to building relationships with things?
"Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self."
-- Maxwell Maltz
"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."
-- George Eliot
