Exercise Is Vital

A gym trainer says “there is nothing better than a gym for fat people”.
Exercise is indeed very helpful in burning fat and calories quickly. But people usually tend to avoid exercise due to several different reasons. For instance, you might not have time to go to gym. All in all, people usually run away from gym, exercise, workouts and all that stuff.

Today, we will try to find out that how easy it is to go to the gym and how quickly you can lose weight within a couple of weeks.
Going to a gym for the purpose of exercise and to reduce your weight is not a “big deal”. I understand how people feel about going to gym when they have so many other alternates available to choose from. You just have to go to your gym 3 to 4 days a week. If you are too busy and cannot spare time, make it 3 days per week. When you are in the gym, the actual workout time must be 20 to 30 minutes. Again you can stick to 20 minutes or 15 minutes if it’s getting hard to manage. So, you see it does not need too much time at all. I am sure anyone can easily spare 20 minutes 3 random days every week. That is not a big deal. You must have to develop interest. If you are not willing or you do not have any interest in losing weight or doing exercise, it will not going to help no matter how much time you spend in the gym. Your intention, interest and motivation are very important.

Tackling Brain Freeze

There I was sitting in my living room wondering where to begin. We had purchased a couch two weeks ago and delivery was in two days. I thought it would be a good idea to really clean up. I had done this about 4 years ago and now seemed like the perfect time again.
Fortunately, a friend of the family who has an eye of organizing had been helping me. So here I was with boxes everywhere; boxes to go to storage and others still yet to be broken down into categories.
Now I was in complete overwhelm stuck wondering what to do next. My mind was in a whirl. Can you relate? Is any of this resonating with you?
When I catch myself during these times, I’ve trained myself to shift the situation by ADDing Perspective. Until you can become aware of what’s happening, you’ll most likely move directly into “Brain Freeze” As somone I know once said “I know the overwhelm is consuming me but I can’t seem to do anything about it”
You can! As you know, ADD is situational so too Life is situational. In this situation, the burst of adrenaline has triggered one of my symptoms under stress – overwhelmed with details. Overwhelm is some form of fear. The fear is always related to something we just don’t understand. What we don’t understand may be the whole notion of brain freeze and what you can do when you find yourself in the midst of it.
The following is an exercise to unlock your brain freeze and move from overwhelm to overcome; from reaction to action.
1. Practice recognizing when and in what situations you become in my case, overwhelmed. Once you do, say out loud, I’m overwhelmed! Good! At least I know I am. This moves you from focusing on what is not working to what works: from challenge to success; from a victim, blaming others, yourself, the circumstances to a hero accepting responsibility. This puts you firmly in charge.
2. Brain freeze is a bio-neurological set back. Do not take it personally. You’re brain chemistry is rattling the cage. Take a moment to calm the agitation.
Give yourself a break literally. Take 1 – 5 minute break. VISUALIZE yourself with your completed project. In my case, my new couch at home. My older couch finding a new home. Everything stored and in it’s perfect place.
3. Once there, look around. What do you see? What do you hear? What could you smell, touch, and/or taste. Most importantly, how do you feel?
4. Breathe this in and smile. Take a deep breath and smile. By this time, you just might find that your brain has unlocked. Once your brain has unlocked, you’ll be able to prioritize, decide what’s next and get moving closer to your goal.
5. Now, take one item and only one item and complete the task. It doesn’t matter which item. The action of choosing one and completing it creates success and momentum.
Learn to focus on one activity at a time. Do it the best you can by remembering what works for you and practice taking small steps over and over. You will find that this simple exercise is translatable to so many other situations. You can move from being overwhelmed and reactive to getting what you love you really want.
Step by step you move closer to personal clarity and personal happiness.

Food Safety And Cancer

Anyone who has cancer has a compromised immune system. Disease resistance is a special problem in leukemia and lymphoma, or any kind of cancer complicated by the depletion of white blood cells called neutropenia. One way to minimize the risk of infection is something your doctor is not likely to have time to tell you about. It is simple sanitation when preparing food. Here are five tips for keeping your produce microbe-free that you probably have not heard before:
1. Fruits and vegetables with rough skins or dry skins harbor exponentially more microbes than fruits and vegetable with smooth skins or moist skins. For instance, you bring more germs into your home on a cantaloupe than on an orange. There are more potential disease-causing bacteria on an orange than on an avocado. And an avocado hosts more bacteria than a fresh apple. All your fruits and vegetables need a quick rinse, especially those with rinds usually removed before eating.
2. More germs are removed from vegetables when you wash them from the bottom up rather than from the top down. Scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that more the most dangerous strain of E. coli, O:157, was removed from apple slices that were placed in a bowl of water agitated at the bottom than was removed by rinsing them with water from above.
3. Commercial rinsing products really do work, but let’s put them in perspective. Simply rinsing produce in tap water removes about 99 per cent of the microbes on their surfaces. A commercial rinsing product typically removes 99.9 per cent of the microbes on fruits and vegetables. That extra 0.9 per cent can make a difference, but no one should be afraid to eat fruits and vegetables that are rinsed and dried as soon as they are brought home from the market.
4. Refrigeration is even more important than washing. It’s always a good idea to separate clean and “dirty” produce in your refrigerator to avoid cross-contamination. If you cannot wash your produce as soon as you bring it home, at least put it in the refrigerator right away. Germs grow more slowly at low temperatures. You can always wash fruits and vegetables a little later. Just wash them even more carefully. Remember, Salmonella is spread by uncooked meats dripping on produce. Nothing helps you prevent Salmonella in your household more than keeping fruits and vegetables separate from meat, eggs, and dairy.
5. If it comes in with gnats or house flies, wash it, peel it, or throw it away. Fruit flies can transfer E. coli from one fruit or vegetable to others, and scientists at the Volcani Center have found that the bacteria survive on their legs for as long as seven days.
One thing you do not have to worry about with fruit and vegetable cleaning solutions is how long you keep your produce in them. University of Georgia scientists have found that the various commercial products all remove E. coli and Salmonella with even a quick rinse. Dunking veggies in cleanser for a full two minutes did not remove additional germs. Just be sure to give all your fruits and vegetables a quick cleaning before you eat them.
