Emanate Change to Eliminate Road Blocks

RoadblocksChange is Constant… it will happen and it does happen. If you really want to make change and get rid of those road blocks here is something I came across the other day and found it fitting…

Take that first action step.
And then take another one tomorrow, and another the day after that.
Every single day from now on take another step forward toward your goal, toward the change you want to make.
Never stop and never give up!

MOTIVATION- Staying There!

Have you set your 30-day goal yet?   GREAT !

Often times the hardest part can be staying motivated throughout your chosen journey.

Setting small attainable goals along the way can help with that feeling of getting stuck or keeping you motivated along the way.

•Define your goal
•Write it down
•Make it positive
•Set a deadlines
•Give it meaning – have a sincere emotional attachment to it
•Make it challenging yet realistic

The goal is not an end, but a means to another goal.. Look at the them as “stepping stones” and each stone represents an achievement.

After all it’s the journey that counts!

Take that first step…

POP QUIZ! – What’s Going to Make You Smarter?

Smarter and less prone to diseases?
A. Solving a complex brainteaser?  Or
B. Taking a walk?

The answer is B. Take a walk!

Exercise has numerous pro-health effects on the body- especially on the brain.  When you exercise you exercise your genetic make-up.  Aerobic exercise not only turns on genes linked to longevity but also targets the gene that codes for the brain’s “growth hormone.”

Aerobic exercise has been shown to reverse memory decline in elderly and increase growth of the new brain cells in the new brain’s memory center.

Exercise is not just good for the body but the brain too!

Going Off Track & The “Rain Shower Effect”

There’s a term I believe it’s called the “rain shower effect”.  Say you’re writing a paper or working on a project and you get stuck in the midst. How do you get unstuck.  You leave what you’re doing and do something totally unrelated.  This allows your mind to free itself of this stuck pattern you have fallen into and then suddenly you find yourself free flowing with ideas. Like a rain shower!

What does this have to do with going off track?

Sometimes we get so stuck in our routines that it feels like we are going in circles & going nowhere.  Stepping off the track can help us gain that freedom and suddenly your mind is flowing with inspiration or the ideas we were looking for to finish or even start that project.

If you’re on a training or nutrition program you may find it helpful to step off the track once in a while, so long as you don’t fall off completely and take what you’ve learned and bring it back on the track.

Routines are great they help accomplish goals. But don’t get so stuck in your way that you close your mind off to learning new things and opening the door for other opportunities.

Here’s something to try:
Change your training routine and do something completely different or maybe even go a little crazy & have dessert  : P

Sometimes by letting go we can gain so much more.
