Share Your Table
reinventing the Sunday dinner

Every time I visit my massage therapist, which is never often enough, I notice a lithograph she has on her wall. It says “Share Your Table”. While I have never asked exactly what it means, when she is kneading my sore muscles my mind wanders to what it means to me.

With the fast pace in which society moves we have allowed certain traditions to go by the wayside. One of these traditions is “Sunday Dinner”. I remember as an adolescent my mother preparing dinner with great care then our family sitting down to good home cooked meal and conversations. Regardless of faith, Sunday is always a great day for some kind of reflection and gathering. For some it is revered as the Sabbath for others it is the beginning of the week and a good time to mentally prepare for the week ahead.

When engaging in a Sunday dinner, consider making it a potluck. If you are not familiar with potluck, I assure you it has little to do with pot or luck for that matter and has more to do with having each guest bringing a dish. A Sunday potluck dinner has benefits twofold.

  • It gives us all an opportunity to learn new recipes and tastes. It also gives us an opportunity to perhaps pass healthy eating habits forward thus improving the quality of the lives of people that surround us.
  • In a world that sometimes appears to be divisive and menacing, Sunday dinner brings us all together in a common and collective cause. It gives us the strength of numbers and prepares us to brave the week ahead with new friends and supporters behind us.

In a blog post I was reading, one person wrote about a Sunday dinner he has hosted, rain or shine, for over 30 years straight. This is what one of the guests had to say. “People from all corners of the world come to break bread together, to meet, to talk, connect and often become friends. All ages, nationalities, races, professions gather here, and since there is no organized seating, the opportunity for mingling couldn't be better. I love the randomness.”

It only takes one person with vision, persistence and leadership to create a movement. Make Sunday dinner a movement and see how it transforms lives. If you need recipes I have been blogging a couple recipes a week. Use them and take creative freedom with them and then let me know how it worked out for you. Check it out at: http://stevia-recipes.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your patronage.

Have a sensational week ahead!

YOUR MIND

The Power To Succeed is Yours
Max Steingart


Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility. Your life to a large extent is what you make of it. Nothing will happen by itself. It will all come your way once you understand that you have to make it come your way.

Choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you to success. Nobody can do it for you.
Only you can make it happen. You're the only one that has to live your life.

The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start on the road to success.

You have the power to succeed at anything. The power to fulfill your dreams is within you.

Tips On Boosting Your Energy Quickly and Easily

Walking, cycling, stair climbing - any activity that makes your heart pump hard qualifies as cardiovascular or aerobic exercise. It's one of the cornerstones of a good fitness program and it's the best way to burn calories, strengthen bones, and build up healthy heart and lungs. Below, some ways to build your aerobic workout.

Frequency: Stick-to-it-ness pays big rewards
For overall good health, aim for at least three half-hour aerobic workouts each week. For excellent health, it's best if you can aim for up to five workouts per week. For weight loss, up the ante a bit more. Try for four to six slightly longer sessions per week. Don't overdo it: even elite athletes should train no more than six days each week, giving their bodies a day to fully recover.

Intensity: Work out hard for best results.
You'll want to exercise with enough intensity to keep your heart pumping at 60 to 80 percent of its maximum rate. This range is called your 'heart rate training zone.' Our target heart rate calculator can figure your maximum heart rate and apply the appropriate percentages. To see if you're in your training zone, take your pulse. Count it for 10 seconds and multiply by six to get the number of beats per minute. For another approach, try to carry on a conversation with the instructor or a training partner while exercising. If you cannot speak without breathing hard, you're working too intensely. Ease up a bit so that you can comfortably carry on a conversation. You're in the training range.

Time: All it takes is 30 minutes a day.
Beginners can start with 20 minutes or three 10-minute segments interspersed throughout the day. Eventually you'll build up to a continuous half-hour exercise session.

Type: Ride, run or walk, whichever you like best.
Cardiovascular activity is any exercise that raises your heart rate for a prolonged period. There are plenty of exercises to choose from, both in the gym and outdoors. Pick one or several and get to it!

Do not forget to drink a lot of water before, during and after your work out. Drinking 64 ounces of water everyday will help boost your energy. 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.

Re-framing Misperceptions
over-coming prosperity issues on lack at a time

We all know what it feels like to want something we don’t have. It may be a pair of expensive jeans, a romantic partner, or rent money; it may be a certain attitude, a car, or a savings account. This is part of life, and in the best-case scenario, we experience a constant flow of money and material possessions, companions and experiences, in and out of our lives. However, many of us linger in a state of wanting and not having, a state of lack that never seems to subside. We consistently perceive ourselves as not having what we need or not having what we want. This is an energetically draining state to be in. It is also self-perpetuating because how we feel about ourselves determines what we are able to create for ourselves.

How we feel profoundly influences how we perceive our reality. When we feel we are lacking, we look around and see what is not there. On the other hand, if we feel abundant, we can look at the very same situation and see a completely different picture, one full of blessings and advantages. The more we see the blessings, the more abundant we feel, and the more blessings we attract. Similarly, if we see lack, we tend to create and attract that energy.

If you find yourself habitually residing in a feeling of lack, it may be due to a core belief formed in your childhood or even in a past life. It may be because you are out of touch with your inner divinity, which is the source of your abundance. In any case, know that your perception of lack is a misperception that can be corrected with awareness and effort. It can be as simple as taking 10 or 15 minutes each day to quiet your mind and imagine yourself in a state of unlimited abundance, handling the financial demands and others in your life with total ease, drawing from an endless supply of resources. Know that it is your birthright to be fully supported in the fulfillment of your needs and desires.
