Relax and Recharge Completely
by: Brian Tracy

Regular relaxation is essential for long life and personal effectiveness. Here are some techniques for relaxing physically that are used by the most successful and highest paid people in America.

Take Time Off Every Week
First of all, work only five or six days per week, and rest completely on the seventh day. Every single study in this area shows that you will be far more productive in the five or six days that you work if you take one or two days off completely than you ever would be if you worked straight through for seven days.

Get Your Mind Busy Elsewhere
During this time off, do not catch up on reports, organize your desk, prepare proposals, or do anything else that requires mental effort. Simply let your mind relax completely, and get busy doing things with your family and friends. Maybe work around the house, go for a walk, engage in physical exercise, watch television, go to a movie, or play with your children. Whatever you do, discipline yourself to shut your mental gears off completely for at least one 24-hour period every seven days.

Get Away On Mini-Vacations
Second, take one three-day vacation every three months, and during that time, refrain from doing any work. Do not attempt to catch up on even a few small things. If you do, you keep your mental gears in motion, and you end up neither resting nor properly doing work of any quality.

Take Big Chunks of Down Time
Third, take at least two full weeks off each year during which you do nothing that is work-related. You can either work or relax; you cannot do both. If you attempt to do a little work while you are on vacation, you never give your mental and emotional batteries a chance to recharge. You’ll come back from your vacation just as tired as you were when you left.

Give Yourself A Break Today
If you are involved in a difficult relationship, or situation at work that is emotionally draining, discipline yourself to take a complete break from it at least one day per week. Put the concern out of your mind. Refuse to think about it. Don’t continually discuss it, make telephone calls about it or mull it over in your mind. You cannot perform at your best mentally if you are emotionally preoccupied with a person or situation. You have to give yourself a break.

Go For A Walk In Nature
Since a change is as good as a rest, going for a nice long walk is a wonderful way to relax emotionally and mentally. As you put your physical body into motion, your thoughts and feelings seem to relax all by themselves.

Eat Lighter Foods
Also, remember that the process of digestion consumes an enormous amount of physical energy. Therefore, if you eat lighter foods, you will feel better and more refreshed afterward. If you eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain products, your digestive system will require far less energy to process them.

Since your diet has such an impact on your level of physical energy, and through it your levels of mental and emotional energy, the more fastidious you are about what you put into your moth, the better you will feel and the more productive you will be. We know now that foods high in fat, sugar, or salt are not good for your body. The lighter the foods you eat, the more energy you have.

Be Good To Yourself
Since your diet has such an impact on your level of physical energy, and through it your levels of mental and emotional energy, the more fastidious you are about what you put into your moth, the better you will feel and the more productive you will be. We know now that foods high in fat, sugar, or salt are not good for your body. The lighter the foods you eat, the more energy you have.

Action Exercises
Here are three things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action:

First, plan your weeks in advance and build in at lest one day when you will relax from work completely. Discipline yourself to keep this date.

Second, reserve, book and pay for your three day vacations several months in advance. Once you’ve paid the money, you are much more likely to go rather than put it off.

Third, decide that you will not work at all during your vacations. When you work, work. And when you rest, rest 100% of the time. This is very important.

Why Eating Healthy Is Important for Weight Loss?

People that eat mostly unprocessed foods including fruits, vegetables and whole grains often find that they can eat as much as they want without gaining weight. If they are switching from a diet containing a lot of meat and junk food, they find that they can eat more yet consume fewer calories. And they lose weight.

Because fruits, vegetables and whole grains are high in fiber and fluid content, they are absorbed more slowly and satisfy our feelings of hunger more completely. Processed foods, on the other hand, are not only low in nutritional value but are so slow to make us feel satisfied that we eat more of them. They are made from refined ingredients that are so tasteless they require large amounts of salt, sugar, fat, and high-priced advertising to make them attractive.

Perhaps our biggest nutritional mistake has been turning away from foods in their natural state. We have replaced them with processed foods that have been modified to last longer; be easier to manufacturer and distribute; and be more convenient to use and store.

  • Natural foods are nutritious and contain much of what is good for us including vitamins and minerals, fiber, the cancer-fighting antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, and the sustained energy provided by whole grains. They reduce our risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
  • Processed foods are substantially less nutritious and contain much of what is not good for us including sodium, preservatives, sugars, saturated fats and trans fatty acids. The most nutritious part of whole grains is the outer cover, the part that is removed to make white flour and white rice.

Eat healthy, natural foods with a high ratio of nutrients to calories and you will not be fat and you will not go hungry. You will be healthier, too.

Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will keep you healthy. While it may sound like an easy task, it can get a little boring. 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. Now, start splashing.


Union Over Separation

“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”

-- Paul Ferrini

Our ego focuses on how we are different from the rest of the world. We connect with soul when we experience how we are the same.

Any time you separate yourself from other people or from situations, you know your personality is in control. At such times, shift your perspective to build connection and you will move into soul.

“As a holistic being you shatter the illusion of your separateness and reveal your connection to everything. This empowers you in a way that the ego-driven self could never contemplate.”

-- Wayne Dyer


All Natural Sugar Free Blackberry Cream Pie
Makes approximately 16 servings

Ingredients:
Meringue Shell:
4 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons All Natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a very tiny dash Steviva Brand Stevia Powder

Filling:
1 small pkg. sugar-free gelatin (strawberry or raspberry)
1 pint heavy cream
1 (8oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup All Natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a very tiny dash Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
1 quart Blackberries cleaned

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 275F. Grease one Pyrex pie plate and set aside.
Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar then beat until whites stand in peaks. Add Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and beat for an additional minute or two.
Spread the meringue evenly in the bottom of the plate and up the sides.
Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes in a 275 F oven, then raise the temperature to 300 and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool while you make filling.
Dissolve gelatin with 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir in 1/3 cup cold water. Place in freezer for approximately 15-20
minutes (just until it begins to gel.) When the gelatin is ready, whip the heavy cream until stiff (but not dry). Fold in cream cheese

Stir in Blackberries (reserving a few for garnish if you like.) Pour over meringue shell in pie plate and let chill until firm -- about 2
hours.
