Setting Positive Goals
creating a space for optimism in your future

Now that we are well into the new year, how many have you written down your goals? Quite honestly, I am still working on mine but, since it is raining today I thought it would be a good time to finish them up. Here are a few ideas that got me started and maybe they will help you:

Be optimistic: This will leave you with great hope for the future. Perhaps you have been thinking about positive ways to manifest your goals in life. This would be a good time to use your optimism and set your intentions for your future.

Consider: Consider what you want to achieve within the next few months. Write down your ideas, remembering to be specific with your goals. You may want to repeat what you have written out loud and then put your goals in a place where you can easily see them. Doing this exercise might help you not only articulate your aspirations but also allow you to put your expectations out into the universe. You could find that the universe listens to you once you convey what you would like to receive.

Clarify: Clarifying our goals encourages us to approach the future with an optimistic and open mind. It is important to remember that the universe gives us everything we ask for but not always in the package we expect, particularly if we are not specific about our goals or if we doubt what we will receive.

By approaching our future with a positive outlook, we place our intention for a hopeful outcome into the universe. This increases the likelihood that our dreams will manifest themselves in a beneficial way. By setting your intention for a hopeful future today, you will find that the universe will respond to you in a positive way.

Have a sensational week ahead!

YOUR MIND

Accepting Change With a Smile
Max Steingart

Sooner or later you'll experience a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success. Since the beginning of time,
everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis.

A closer look will show you that most "crisis situations" are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are. In fact, most changes in your life will take place out of either"inspiration" or "desperation."

Whatever comes your way, give it meaning and transform it into something of value. Your personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.

A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

Five Practices To Keep You Physically Fit
There are lots of ways to be physically active and it all counts.

1. Always remember that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. Newton was right all along - inertia is tough to overcome for any object, most especially a human body. You get into a groove to exercise, both physically and psychologically, and the momentum can be so strong and so effective."

2. After you exercise, take a few minutes and close your eyes, and really think about how good your body feels, how clear your mind is of stress and confusion. You may not like the time when you're exercising, although hopefully you will learn to enjoy it, but that after-exercise buzz always feels great."

3. Don't overlook the physical activity you get in your everyday active life, like doing housework, gardening, walking the dog, or playing with the kids. There are lots of ways to be physically active and it all counts, so you may be exercising more than you give yourself credit for."

4. Think of it this way: There are 168 hours in every week. If you exercise for just four of those you'll feel really good and accomplished the other 164. It's really just a small investment, isn't it?"

5. There is no inherently bad food on the planet - it's often a question of how much you're eating. I don't like the word 'diet,' which is often about denial and the elimination of food. Instead, sit down with a registered dietician and get your eating patterns analyzed. Just as you should start an exercise routine and gradually increase the intensity, so you should gradually introduce a healthier pattern of eating."

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.

Soulful Voyages
Travel Sensitivity
by Madisyn Taylor

Traveling can be hard on sensitive souls; routine and a few favorite items can make your journey easier.

The journeys we take are often as exhausting as they are exhilarating. The thrill we feel as we travel to a new environment may be undercut by our sensitivity to change, strange surroundings, and forced shifts in our usual habits. Air, road, and sea travel can be extremely taxing, and many people find sleeping soundly in a strange bed exceedingly difficult. There are, however, numerous ways of taking the stress out of both short voyages and lengthy sojourns. Since much of the comfort we feel in our day-to-day lives stems from the fact that we enjoy the regularity of routine, adapting your typical customs to correspond with your travel schedule can alleviate the unease you experience while away from your home. Likewise, when you ground yourself by honoring the rituals that are a part of your daily life, you’ll no longer feel like you’re out of your element.

If you find yourself disconcerted by the foreignness of your surroundings when traveling, packing a few reassuring items from your home in your luggage can help you stay balanced. Photographs of loved ones, a favorite tea or snack, soft slippers, or even your own pillow can soothe the rigors associated with travel by plane, car, train, and ship while en route. Holding a crystal, gemstone, talisman, or medicine bag in your hand during particularly stressful periods of travel can help you stay relaxed and alert. Items imbued with healing or calming energy can help you de-stress once you reach your destination. As you unpack your travel altar, light a stick of sweet-smelling incense, or bask in the glow of a meditation candle, you’ll gradually begin to feel more grounded and serene in your new location.

During the course of your journey, try not to forget to indulge in those activities that center you and sustain your emotional equilibrium. If you tend to sleep and wake at the same time each day, maintaining that schedule will ensure you stay strong and healthy. Taking time out of your voyage agenda to write in a journal, meditate, do yoga, or walk can help you reconnect with yourself in an alien setting. However you restore your tranquility, your conscious choice to surround yourself with comforting possessions and focus on your well-being will make traveling a joy.

YOUR RECIPE

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Low Glycemic Chocolate Angel Food Cake
Total Servings 12
Serving Size 1 slice
Carbs Per Serving: 11.7 g
Prep Time:<60 minutes
Skill Level: Easy

We all know we are no angels but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be entitled to Angel Food Cake! This light and airy low glycemic and high protein cake satisfies chocolate lovers without tons of calories or carbs. Enjoy it plain or dress it up with fresh fruit, custard or a whipped topping.

Ingredients
½ cup tapioca flour or arrowroot
¼ cup cocoa
1 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
10 egg whites
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Sift together tapioca flour or arrowroot, cocoa and half of the Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites on low speed, slowly adding salt and lemon juice. Increase the speed. As soon as whites reach the soft-peak stage, begin adding remaining Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash to taste Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder, a little at a time. Beat until whites are glossy and stiff.

Sift dry ingredients ¼ at a time over the whites, folding them in after each addition.

Spoon batter into a 10-inch ungreased angel food cake tube pan with a removable bottom or a 10-inch bundt pan. (Do not use a pan with a no-stick surface and do not grease the pan.) Tap the pan once on the counter to help distribute batter.

Place pan on the middle rack in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Edges will pull from the sides of the pan.

Place cake (still in the pan) upside down on a rack. Traditionally, the pan is inverted on the neck of a wine bottle or funnel to cool. After an hour or more remove from pan and enjoy.
