Two Quick Fixes That Will Help You Slim Down
how to increase your energy and lose weight in two simple moves
Does the everyday grind seem to tap all of your energy reserves? Are you eating three small meals a day and still not losing weight? Here are a couple of tried and true changes you can easily make and notice gains in energy and losses in weight. Give them a try and you will see the results.
Eat Less More Often:
How many times do you eat each day? You probably eat no more than two meals a day? You may snack in between, but if you take a hard look you will probably notice that there is no order to your food consumption. Your metabolism will run at its most efficient level by consuming six small meals spread evenly throughout the day. That's right, simply eating six small meals spread about 2.5 hours apart will produce noticeable results in your energy lever and your waistline!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!:
If you lack energy chances are that you are dehydrated. Consequently, dehydration is also a primary cause of obesity. Drinking ten or more 8-ounce glasses of water each and every day will help you shed pounds and destroy extreme fatigue! Your body is a water sponge...you must have an adequate supply of water to operate at you peak! 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.
If you simply make these two simple adjustments you will feel a difference. Now getting eating and drinking.
Have a sensational week!

Hi-Impact Results From Low-Impact Exercises
Not everyone is made for high-level exercising. But you can become fit without bouncing around in a leotard, battering your joints. Forget all the huffing, puffing, lugging, lifting, and straining. Movement therapy is a gentle – yet effective – group of sports that include yoga, tai chi, and Pilates. Just don’t be fooled by their mild manner. These activities can whip you into shape without breaking a sweat.
All three have ancient Eastern roots and are merely different interpretations of the same principle: keeping your body and mind in harmony naturally leads to better health.
It wasn’t until recently that modern science confirmed the many physical benefits of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates. With them, you can improve your balance, flexibility, and strength – no matter what your age, weight, or fitness level.
No Pain – but great gain
Yoga, tai chi, and Pilates are gentle enough for anyone to try. If you consider yourself in bad health or disabled in some way, you’re a perfect candidate for these movement therapies. You can ease into the programs slowly and set your own pace. It’s easy to stick with them and you’ll see improvement quickly.
Here are just some of the benefits you will get from these soothing approaches to fitness.
• When you were a child, tripping and falling meant just another minor scrape. But as you get older, taking a tumble can have serious and crippling effects. If your sense of balance is as bad as Humpty Dumpty’s, these are the safest forms of exercise for you.
Just like the trick to growing tomatoes is to keep the main stalk strong, the trick to great balance is to keep your core muscles strong. The bands of muscle in your abdomen, lower back, and buttocks are the center of strength and control for the rest of your body.
All three examples of movement therapy are relatively stationary, but because they strengthen your core muscles, your balance will improve quickly – preventing falls – and you’ll develop greater flexibility and strength. Soon you will be moving with confidence again.
• Tai chi and yoga are especially recommended for people with arthritis. Gentle yoga can improve arthritis in your hands, for example, and tai chi’s precise, flowing movements help keep your joints limber, relieve your pain, and keep you active.
• The dance-like stretches, poses, and maneuvers within each of these movement therapies will gently strengthen and tone your body. Pilates is especially good as a strength-training workout.
• Add yoga or Pilates to your exercise regimen if you need to improve your heart health.
• In today’s hectic world, it may be hard to squeeze an extra 30 minutes of exercise into your schedule – at least without feeling even more stress. The beautiful thing about movement therapy is that it combines stress relief with exercise, so you kill two birds with one stone.
All the activities – tai chi, yoga, and Pilates – are done slowly, with intense focus on proper breathing and posture. They all relax your body and calm your mind.
As you can see, you can boost your overall health with these joyful, health-giving movements.
Things to know before you give it a go
Just to be safe, make sure that you take these precautions before starting any new exercise program.
• Get your doctor’s approval on your fitness plan, especially if you’ve badly injured your back, neck, knees, or shoulders in the past.
• The stretches, poses, and movements of these therapies should not hurt. If you feel pain, stop and check your technique before continuing.
• Pilates is the most intense of the three exercise forms. You may want to try one of the less strenuous programs first if you are out of shape.
• Be forewarned, you might get addicted to these calming sports.

The Power of the Mind
"I want to know the thoughts of God;
the rest are details."
-- Albert Einstein
Everything -- absolutely everything -- that happens in our lives has a spiritual cause. Events on all other levels -- mental, emotional and physical -- are only effects.
When we are struggling with any challenge, whether it be ill health, a lack of money, a lost job, poor relationships, an accident, whatever -- we need to look for the spiritual learning. We can ask ourselves, "What quality does my soul want me to live more fully?"
"If you start to think the problem is ‘out there,’ stop yourself. That thought is the problem."
-- Stephen Covey
