How to raise your spiritual and emotional IQ

How to raise your spiritual and emotional IQ

spiritual and emotional IQ is the ability to see a bigger picture, to see cause and effect within your life at a level above what an average person would consider. We as human beings, tend to believe that we are destined to have life pan out a certain way. Our family and friends lives are similar to ours, so that’s our reality and we accept it. Sure there are some ‘lucky’ people out there achieving a lifestyle we could never envisage for ourselves, but you feel they’re different, special and blessed ?

But you know what? They’re not. They just have a higher spiritual and emotional intelligence that has allowed them to create their life beyond conventional limitations. I’m going to show you how you can achieve that too.

So spiritual and emotional IQ means turning life on its head. Instead of walking around and looking at how you’re the victim of everything going on around you, take a look and ask – what if I could create anything and transform everything in my life? What if my own belief systems – my actions and decisions – are causing my life to be this way, in every capacity? What if I could gain a perspective that was high enough to change that?

The cause and effect relationship to life

Those with a spiritual IQ say there is a cause and effect relationship for everything that happens in the physical universe. When I started to increase my understanding of these concepts I could instantly see I was spending every resource I had to create what I really didn’t want in my life. Back then, I was complaining, I was angry, I was confused. If someone had come and said ‘why don’t you stop creating this life for yourself?’ I would have refused any responsibility.

As you raise your spiritual and emotional IQ you start seeing a bigger piece of the world, which gives you a different perspective of these labels you’ve put on yourself. You can also see the cause and effect relationship that these things have in your life and to the results that you’re achieving. Often, these are not the results you want.

How you can change your life around today

This is how you can learn to see life through a different lens, and start recognizing limiting mindsets, and how to change them. The belief you can is the only prerequisite required for you to achieve it.

  • Don’t do anything with the view you’re the victim of circumstances. Take control, take responsibility. Don’t buy into your own ‘poor me’ story.
  • Plug into some positive things that give you the perception the control is within you. Personal development books, podcasts, a community of positive people! Steer clear of those within your circle who are permanently playing the victim. They’ll only drag you down.
  • Tune into your own language. Listen to your internal dialogue, and word choices you make while conversing with others. Make sure it consists of I can, I want, I will. And not I can’t, I won’t, I want to BUT.

Anything the mind can see and believe, it can achieve

You don’t know how quickly things can change when you get on track spiritually, emotionally, and stop engaging in the drama. Make space in your mind for you to believe anything is possible then within that space; start to create exactly what you want:

Physically – in your life on a daily basis by your every day actions.

Mentally – by what you’re putting into your mind and your internal conversations.

Visually – visualize your future and design it exactly how you want.

The possibilities are endless. Welcome to the journey towards your extraordinary life!

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

12 Practical Tips To Stay Fit For Christmas

Christmas is approaching fast, and lots of people not only tend to ruin their usual diets, but they also gain a few extra pounds. Based on studies, the majority of people tend to gain additional weight during the holiday season that starts at the Thanksgiving Day and ends with the New Year celebrations. Excessive eating is claimed to be the main cause for the additional weight gain, but it is also due to lack of physical activity and exercise.

A lot of individuals out there tend to set aside their fitness routines during the holidays since they believe that they do not have enough time to perform their workouts. And because they feel guilty after the holiday season, most of the gyms and fitness centers are packed with fresh members. Always bear in mind that you can still enjoy the holidays and stay fit at the same time. If you want to stay fit during the holiday season, especially during Christmas and the New Year’s Eve, here are some useful tips that might help you:

1. Eat Before Heading Out

First, it is best that you eat something before heading out to visits, trips or family dinners. By doing so, you will no longer be tempted to eat a lot or overindulge yourself since you have already eaten. Skipping on meals is not a good idea either, because you will only be forced to eat more later.

2. Select The Treats

Make sure to select the treats that you eat in a wise manner. You should choose something that you can only enjoy during the holiday season and not something that is readily available all the time.

3. Avoid Skipping Meals

Don’t skip meals, especially breakfast! Even though it can be tempting to skip on certain meals, believing that it will make up for the treats you consumed in the previous day, don’t do it because it will only lead to counterproductive results.

4. Drink With Moderation

It is best to regulate your drinking since alcohol, coke or other juices will only add more calories to the ones you already eaten!

5. Be Active

You should still perform your fitness routine whenever possible and if you can’t do that, simply walk more, park your car some distance away from the store or just use the stairs!

6. Get Out Of The House

Make the holidays a family affair and plan outdoor activities where everyone is involved. Even a snowball fight in the backyard will burn a lot of calories and will keep the children entertained.

7. Don’t Skip Your Strength Workouts

Always remember to perform your strength training in order to maintain that muscle mass you worked hard to get. You might be tempted to use lightweights and just do some cardio, but you can burn just as many calories by lifting weights. And with all of those extra stakes you had on the holiday meals, you might even gain some extra muscle. And this is much better than gaining some extra fat.

8. Set Realistic Goals

You should set realistic exercise objectives. Aim for at least half an hour per day and you will be very happy when you will achieve that. If you plan one hour or more and not achieve it, you will only end up disappointed.

9. Enjoy Yourself

Also make sure to set realistic diet plans! Trying to restrain yourself totally from some foods will only make you eat more. Feel free to enjoy the treats that you really love, but in small portions.

10. Drink A Lot Of Water

This can satiate your appetite as well as keep you hydrated at all times. And it will also prevent a possible hangover if you overdo it with alcohol.

11. Eat Less And More Often

Distribute your meals evenly throughout the day, and do not eat everything at once.  Instead of having 2 enormous meals, have 5 small ones.  Eat your dinner earlier and have a nice walk before going to bed.

12. Prioritize Your Workouts

Try to do them early in the morning while everyone else is still sleeping. This way you will also avoid remarks like “Oh, come on! It’s Christmas…”

So there you go! Twelve simple tips that will help you avoid gaining weight during the winter holidays, but will also allow you to enjoy yourself and have a great time with your loved ones.

Happy Holidays everyone!
