Super Foods are Hiding in Your Fridge

The easiest and most straightforward way of giving yourself energy, preserving your body and losing weight is probably available at your neighborhood food store, or it might even be buried in your kitchen. Don’t be alarmed, be excited.

Many health experts from around the world have been advocating for the incorporation of superfoods into our diets, and some say that merely adding a few of them to your daily menu is enough to provide your wellbeing with an instant boost.

What is there in superfoods that makes them so desirable?

Some of these superfoods are rightly considered exotic, and are only available in health food stores. Among these, you can find acai berries (that come from the Amazon rain forests), goji berries (another rare fruit), Spirulina (a miracle working seaweed) and others. The good news is that most of the superfoods are far more accessible than we thought, and as a matter of fact, they are already available at our house. Despite the fact, that some of these healthy foods are underneath our noses, we do not consume them on a regular basis. 

Among the superfoods, you can find at the nearest market or supermarket you can find: legumes, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, blueberries, strawberries, quinoa, salmon, dark chocolate (with more than 70% cacao), and many green leaves – the greener they are, the healthier they are. For this reason, kale has become the object of such legendary tales, that have turned it into the unofficial king of superfoods. Spinach, mangold and Bok choy are high on this list as well.

Apparently, turning to a superfood-rich diet is super simple, and super healthy: replacing processed foods or less healthy foods by superfoods, will not only grant our body important nutritional values, but will also provide energy and assistance to the different body systems. Some of them even boost the discharge of mood-improving hormones.

Knowing What You Should Do vs. What You Really Want to Do?

I know everyday what I need to do, but do not always do it.

Some days I wake up late and star slow.

Some days I spend binge watching TV.

Is it a set back?  Yes and no.

Some days I need to rest.

That does not mean I will not get back up and start going after my goals again.

I will not beat myself for a detour on my journey.

I will reach my goals and lead a fulfilling life.

 

R.M. Drake

You shouldn’t look for answers in people who have left you.
There are no revelations there. No guides. No fulfillment’s of any kind.
You’re not going to find a map to paradise in these people.
You’re going to find confusion and a lot more questions, perhaps even more than you can handle.
And I know people change, that is if they want to but why give in?
Why trust who has broken you before?
I mean, people live and sometimes they have the nerve to come back but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to let them back in.
You don’t have to.
You owe it to yourself to be happy.
Besides look at you now, you’re a goddam superstar and in their absence you have found more of yourself and your smile.
You’re stronger and to be honest, you don’t need to spiral around the bulls*** their universe brings.
You don’t need people who have hurt you to convince you of how beautiful you are.
You’re a flower, and you don’t drown the moment the rain starts falling down.

Is the Wind at Your Back or Are You Walking Into It

This is something I deal with every week.  Am I helping myself or hurting myself.  Days I am depressed I am generally not doing what I need to do, to get where I want to be.  Days I am happy I do what I need to do, to be where I need to be.

The saying from Nike is priceless,”Just Do It.”  Easier said than done, but moving forward is better than staying still.  Moving forward means things can become better.  Doing nothing means things will stay the same.  Either way, those are your choices.  The world will change regardless.

Feel Depressed? Ideas to Feel Good Again

When you are down there can be many little reasons why you are depressed or many big ones or a combination of factors.  Do not overthink it.  Keep it simple. 

  1. Hunger can cause depression.  Are you eating well?
  2. Lack of exercise can cause depression.  Go outside for a walk.
  3. Water.  This is an odd one to me, but if I pound a liter of water I will feel better.  No idea why, but it works for me.
  4. Create a daily to do list
  5. Create a list of priorities, goals, and dreams and prioritize them.  This often inspires me
  6. Call a friend
  7. Post some positive things to your blog(we all have one)

Get Comfortable Asking for Help

As a rule, most people do not like asking others for help. You don’t want to feel like you are burdening someone else or you don’t want to feel obligated to someone else. But I learned from my Rich Habits research that self-made millionaires get comfortable being uncomfortable with a lot of things. Asking for…
