1. Weight lifting exercise

One of the best thing that you could do to lose weight is probably weight lifting exercises. You don’t have to burn yourself out with sweaty sessions of cardio. Weight lifting exercises not only make your body and muscles strong, it also heats up your body resulting in burning the extra stubborn fats from your body.

In addition, weight lifting increases your resting metabolic rates and this helps you reduce your fats faster even when you are resting or sleeping.

2. Getting more sleep and rest

Sleep deprivation can lead to overeating and extra pounds. Too little sleep  leads to cortisol spikes which in turn signals the body to conserve energy to fuel your waking hours. Which actually means that the body holds on to its fat content for fuel.

4. Eating more foods with Iron

Eating foods that contain Iron is highly beneficial for you as this mineral helps oxygen to reach the cells of your body, keeping you healthy and maintaining your fitness. If you don’t take enough iron, then your metabolism rate will get slower which will eventually result in increasing fats in your body.

If you don’t take enough iron, then your metabolism rate will get slower which will eventually result in increasing fats in your body. Some good sources of iron are dark green vegetables such as spinach, red meat, sea foods, poultry, beans, peas, etc.

Health and nutrition consultant, Deborah Orlick Levy reveals that “German researchers found that drinking six cups or 48 ounces of very cold water a day requires the body to expend more calories in trying to warm the water to body temperature. This can result in an increase in resting metabolism by 50 calories a day.”

6. Doing Yoga

Rather than heavy exercises, you can try yoga. A research shows that tension reduces your metabolism, making you more fat. By doing yoga you can reduce your tension and increase your metabolism rate.

You should find an activity (even non-physical) that reduces your tension like listening to soothing music and perform it daily as it will keep you calm and stress-free.

By following these tips, you can easily reduce your weight and make yourself more healthy and energized. These tips have helped many people and have shown positive results all over the world.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
