Hey, what's for lunch ?? Squats !!

Did you know that squats make great energizing lunch break exercises? Well, now you do. The great thing about doing squats on your lunch break is that you don't have to work up a sweat in order to reap the benefits, and they can be done almost anywhere, your desk, in the break room, outside and even in the restroom, if necessary, Plus, doing squats regularly helps tone up leg muscles and chase the fat awayyyyy. And get this, it only takes 10 to 15 reps to feel refreshed. What a perfect way to energize on a short work break. 

Are YOU Trading Sleep for Work ?? Yeah, you...

Hey, Marco here. We all work, and realize that SLEEP is so vital to our health, yet so many people give it up to work at their jobs more. This is a study finding and it applies to just about all socioeconomic levels. Being a short sleeper wast correlated with having several jobs. The study's lead author, Dr. Mathias Basner, recommends several ways to combat this problem. One is to reduce the commute time, which was factored in the study. Another was more flexibility in work start times. Cutting back on working several jobs per single person would also help. At least seven hours are necessary for optimizing one's mental and physical productivity and output. 
If you're struggling to shed a few pounds, ask yourself why you spend so much time on the job, which btw, can also be a fertile ground for over eating. Just a thought... Hugs !!

Can You Be Depressed and Motivated ??

Marco here. Are you depressed and motivated? Do they even go together... The two terms seem to be mortal enemies. Nevertheless, yes, you can be down in the dumps and motivated at the same time. It just means giving yourself the freedom to get going. 
Realize that you don't have to be happy to be motivated. You don't have to be cheery to do pushups, yoga, jumping jacks or ride a bike. The best exercise to do when depressed is weightlifting because it empowers you in a way that mere jogging, walking, or swimming don't. Turn that inner frustration into physical power... Hugs !! 

20 minute Guided Mindfulness Exercise ( and kick depression's arse)

Mindfulness is "the intentional, accepting and non-judgemental focus of one's attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment", which can be trained by a large extent in meditational practices. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the results of a ground-breaking study that found that meditation appears to provide as much relief from some anxiety and depression symptoms as antidepressants.

Crap, What next ?? 24,000 chemicals tainting your bottled water..

Tap water is by no means something to reach for when looking to achieve optimal health (check this out to see why that is). But unfortunately, the common alternative of bottled water isn’t really much better. Not only does the massive amount of plastic used to produce bottled water desecrate our lands and oceans, but research has actually found bottled water to harness thousands of health-destructive chemicals. German researchers have discovered endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in water bottles that could adversely affect development and reproduction. In fact, there are 24,520 suspect chemicals found to be present in 18 different water bottle brands that could be wreaking your health.
These endocrine disruptors chemicals can interfere with the hormone system, they can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, cardiovascular disorders, metabolic disorders and as mentioned earlier,  other developmental disorders.

One Hour Candle Meditation with Gentle Rain Sounds

I am off to my meditation room. (time to leave Earth for a while...) 

Your One Hour Meditation Candle

Growing Older is a Wonderful, Beautiful dream... Love "YOU"

A legend tells of a man who used to carry water every day to his village, using two large pitchers tied on either end of a piece of wood, which he placed across his shoulders.
One of the pitchers was older than the other and was full of small cracks; every time the man came back along the path to his house, half of the water was lost.
For two years, the man made the same journey. The younger pitcher was always very proud of the way it did its work and was sure that it was up to the task for which it had been created, while the other pitcher was mortally ashamed that it could carry out only half its task, even though it knew that the cracks were the result of long years of work.
So ashamed was the old pitcher that, one day, while the man was preparing to fill it up with water from the well, it decided to speak to him.
We all, at some point, grow old and acquire other qualities, and these can always be turned to good advantage.
“I wish to apologize because, due to my age, you only manage to take home half the water you fill me with, and thus quench only half the thirst awaiting you in your house.”
The man smiled and said:
“When we go back, be sure to take a careful look at the path.”
The pitcher did as the man asked and noticed many flowers and plants growing along one side of the path.
“Do you see how much more beautiful nature is on your side of the road?” the man remarked. “I knew you had cracks, but I decided to take advantage of them. I sowed vegetables and flowers there, and you always watered them. I’ve picked dozens of roses to decorate my house, and my children have had lettuce, cabbage and onions to eat. If you were not the way you are, I could never have done this. We all, at some point, grow old and acquire other qualities, and these can always be turned to good advantage.”
