Breezing Through The Holidays with a Positive Mental Attitude
ho ho how a positive mental attitude can affect your health
and holiday

Nothing else contributes as much to one's sense of well being and health as a positive mental attitude especially during the holidays. A Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) can make a crucial difference to our lives. The difference between brooding over our problems and moving ahead; between living in the shadows and claiming a place in the sun, between wallowing in self-pity and helping others overcome.

In the sphere of health, nothing can contribute as much to a sense of well-being as a positive mental attitude. "I feel healthy, I feel happy, I feel terrific," is one of the slogans advocated by Napoleon Hill and W. Clement Stone in their influential best-seller Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude. They recommend one to develop the PMA philosophy. "Prepare for any possible emergency. Always have something to live for. Never abandon hope", are some of the principles.

"He has lost the will to fight, to live" is a statement one hears often. Sometimes, doctors are baffled. While one patient succumbs easily to a particular disease, another makes a miraculous recovery. The miracle is often effected through PMA. While Negative Mental Attitude (NMA) spells defeat and death, PMA represents life and achievement. It is the wonder drug that enables the severely disabled to participate in the Olympics, travel across the world and climb the Everest. Here is to your Positive Mental Attitude in the coming New Year... because Attitude Determines Altitude.

Risk Not Want Not
Max Steingart

If you don't take some risks, you won't get the chance to succeed. While you are trying, you are winning.

The law of averages is on your side. The more you try, the greater your chance of succeeding. Never get discouraged.

Every wrong attempt is another step forward. People that make no mistakes usually don't make anything.

Make up your mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand defeats.

Your mistakes are stepping stones to success and Your installment payments to victory.

You can't be a winner and be afraid to lose.

Basics for Back Health
4 tips to keep a strong spine

You've may of heard this line before, but once again, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! This same philosophy is well applied when it comes to injury in the musculoskeletal system. Many back injuries occur on the job, and most often for health care workers. Although, improper ergonomics and lifting can also occur outside the work place. Back pain can be purely physical, although in the realm of mind/body medicine, back pain may be symbolic of not feeling supported. [1] Here are a few tips to keep in mind [2] :

  1. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises at least 2 or 3 times a week.
  2. Sit and stand up straight.
  3. Avoid heavy lifting. If you do lift something heavy, bend your legs and keep your back straight.
  4. If you are overweight, lose weight to help lower the strain on your back.

Back pain could be beyond a basic strain, especially if it persists, worsens, or is associated with other symptoms. Here's a few tips to know when you need to see a doctor [3] :

  1. Numbness or tingling
  2. Severe pain that does not improve with rest
  3. Pain after a fall or an injury
  4. Pain plus any of these problems:
    Trouble urinating
    Numbness in your legs
    Weight loss when not on a diet

Keeping a strong back will give you strength and support in other aspects of your life. Remember take care of your body, and it will take care of you!

Revealing Your True Self
Our true selves exist whether we acknowledge them or not, often buried under fears and learned behavior.

Identity is an elusive concept. We feel we must define ourselves using a relatively small selection of roles and conscious character traits, even if none accurately represents our notion of "self." The confusion surrounding our true natures is further compounded by the fact that society regularly asks us to suppress so much of our emotional, intellectual, and spiritual vibrancy. Yet we are, in truth, beings of light—pure energy inhabiting physical bodies, striving for enlightenment while living earthly lives. Our true selves exist whether we acknowledge them or not, often buried under fears and learned behavior. When we recognize our power, our luminosity, and our divinity, we cannot help but live authentic lives of appreciation, potential, fulfillment, and grace.

At birth and throughout your childhood, your thoughts and feelings were more than likely expressions of your true self. Though you may have learned quickly that to speak and act in a certain fashion would win others' approval, you understood innately that you were no ordinary being. There are many ways you can recapture the authenticity you once articulated so freely. Meditation can liberate you from the bonds of those earthly customs that compel you to downplay your uniqueness. Also, communing with nature can remind you of the special role you were meant to play in this lifetime. In order to realize your purpose, you must embrace your true self by letting your light shine forth, no matter the consequences.

Rediscovering who you are apart from your roles and traits takes time and also courage. If, like many, you have denied your authenticity for a long while, you may find it difficult to separate your true identity from the identity you have created to cope with the world around you. Once you do find this authentic self, however, you will be overcome by a wonderful sense of wholeness as you reconcile your spiritual aspect and your physical aspect, as well as your inner- and outer-world personas. As you gradually adjust to this developing unity, your role as a being of light will reveal itself to you, and you will discover that you have a marvelous destiny to fulfill.

Video Instructions Here
Serving Size 8 ounce servings
Carbs Per Serving: 15.8g

Skill Level: Easy

Nothing defines the fall and winter season like a nice cup on hot chocolate or as my family called it cocoa. A lot of people don't realize the amazing health benefits of cocoa. A recent study has found that cocoa is rich in powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants can protect you against a range of diseases and reduce the effects of aging. Further studies suggests cocoa may be richer in antioxidants than drinks like tea and red wine.

Conventional hot chocolate is loaded with sugar. Here is an amazing cocoa recipe that is low in carbs and sugars yet is really delicious. I have this almost every morning during the winter months. You have to try it, seriously.

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup
Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash to taste of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups regular milk, nut milk or soy milk
1/2 cup hot water (for richer and creamer use milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a saucepan, combine cocoa,
Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a tiny dash of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder , cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and salt. Blend in hot water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil, stirring for 2 minutes. Add milk; stir and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Beat until foamy. Serve hot with cinnamon sticks, if desired.
