There are many reasons that we gain weight.It’s an insecurity for a lot of us, and sometimes even when we cut our calories we still can’t manage to drop those last few pounds. Now that summer is unfortunately coming to an end, it’s often harder to stay on top of a healthy diet and stay in a workout routine. There are a lot of smoothies and drinks out there claiming to help you shed pounds. It’s hard to decipher which ones actually work or not. So to cut down your research time, I’ve done all the trial and errors for you. Below I’ve listed some drinks that can help rev up your metabolism and can teach you how to lose weight easily. Losing weight should be fun and your drinks should be too.

1. Green Tea

    • Bring 8 oz of water to a boil
    • soak 2 green tea bags for 3-5 minutes
    • take mint, lemon and honey to add flavor

    This is a drink that you can drink hot or cold. If you drink it cold, I recommend putting the mint in ice cubes. I like drinking this first thing in the morning because it boosts your metabolism and is a healthy way to start the day.

          Drinking black coffee can speed up your metabolism by almost 10 percent. It’s the caffeine that gives metabolism a boost by revving bodily functions. I recommend black coffee first thing in the morning, or right before a workout. To add some flavor without the calories you can add a pinch or two of cinnamon.

                  How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                  How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                  Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

                  But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

                  No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

                  Advertising

                  When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

                  1. Relax as You Meditate

                  A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

                  Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

                  Advertising

                  Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

                  2. Practice Daily Affirmations

                  Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

                  What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

                  Advertising

                  So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

                  1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
                  2. Use present tense (I have)
                  3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
                  4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

                  Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

                  Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

                  Advertising

                  I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
                  My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

                  Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.

                  Begin practicing these positive thinking tips right now. And I wish you continued empowerment and growth on your positive thinking journey.
