You’ll Lose Weight Fast If You Can Overcome These 3 Barriers

Have you ever noticed that it takes you longer to lose weight than other people?  Trying to rack your brain to figure it out, well rack no further!  We have 3 great strategies to help you lose weight fast!  Three things you should focus on: be aware of how much you’re sitting, keep track of how much and what you are eating, how much you’re exercising, and being conscious of your proportion size!  Say you’re busy 24/7, no worries!  There are ways you can do this even though you have a crazy schedule!  When doing these you will begin to notice you CAN regain your body back!  No more fat belly or flabby arms, just your beautiful self!  Read on to see how this can change the way you lose weight!

Step 1. Being Aware of How Much Your Sitting!

Some of our problems come from not being as active as we should!  When trying to lose weight keeping active is the first step!  Staying active is as easy as taking the stairs vs the elevator, or parking a little farther away to get a few extra steps in. Extra time is not necessary for staying active. While at work instead of walking from point a to point b, you can jog. To maximise the effects, take a minute to look at some quick and effective exercises that can be done anywhere and anytime of the day! Soon you will be able to see a difference!


Step 2. Keep Track of How Much and What You’re Eating, As Well As How Much You’re Exercising!

When losing weight the one thing you don’t think about is logging your exercises and what food you eat. That’s normal, you think you will not forget, but with busy schedules you can’t remember everything single thing. When our schedules are crazy, your mind is in the moment. So when it is time to eat, you are not thinking about what you had before and that you are watching your calories. You’re ready to stuff yourself with whatever you can get your hands on. The best way to be aware of what you eat is to log it. It can be done with a little notebook, or with an app. In order to keep track of everything completely, keep it in order.


When it comes to exercise, there are many ways to go about it.  You could get an app that goes off at random times and you do an exercise for just 10 minutes then and there. Another way is to pick a time each day to set aside for exercising, like 30 minutes in the morning or before bed.


Step 3. Be Conscious of Your Portion Size!

Portion size is one of the major culprits in making it difficult to lose weight at the rate that is most desirable for us. The best way to help with our meals is starting with smaller helpings and adding more as needed. You can also add a little grain, and more protein enriched sides as you want to fill yourself up with more healthier things. You should chew slowly in order for the food to digest at a faster pace. One thing you need to do is STOP once you are full. Overeating is how our weight loss is prevented.

Well folks, there you have it!  Three new strategies to help you lose weight!  When feeling stressed from not reaching your desirable weight, keep in mind you need to stay active!  As well as keeping a log of what you’re ingesting and how much you’re exercising!  Lastly watch your proportion sizes and making sure to eat slower!  Good luck when following these steps!  Remember you can do this!

8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

Less is more.


Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

1. Create Room for What’s Important

When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

2. More Freedom

The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.


3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.


It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

5. More Peace of Mind

When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

6. More Happiness

When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.


7. Less Fear of Failure

When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

8. More Confidence

The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
