5 Ways To Seriously Boost Your Immune System

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

How do we prevent madness and bodily sickness? Eat healthy – sure. Exercise – sure. But, there are other ways, powerful techniques that will boost the immune system and holy system in far more profound ways. Exercise your imagination regularly.

By Patiently Practicing You Can Produce A Miracle

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Genius is eternal patience – Michelangelo Be patient. Be kind to yourself. Others might give up, get frustrated, and overtime get tired and burned out. They might blame the practice, saying it doesn’t work; while it is a normal reaction to blame something that doesn’t work, look closely. If you do something haphazardly and fail, don’t blame the system. Find out what can be done differently and make the necessary adjustments. Remember – Genius is eternal patience.

12 Health Benefits of Quinoa, According to Science (+8 Delicious Recipes To Try)

by in Moving & Eating.

In recent years, quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) has become a buzzword among the health-conscious. Considered a trendy superfood, quinoa’s superior make-up earns its status. Quinoa, a seed among grains, can be served hot or cold, and is typically boiled in the same manner as rice. It is simple to prepare and makes for a great substitute to other grains that might not be as nutritionally complete, such as wheat and rice. Quinoa is coated in saponins, which are bitter-tasting compounds that act as a natural pesticide. Because of this, it is important to thoroughly rinse and soak quinoa before cooking. Saponins are found in other vegetables as well–they are the agents …

Understanding and Managing Stress

Understanding and Managing Stress

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Stress is something we all experience from time to time and it can be caused by a whole host of different situations. Some of the most common triggers include relationships, money and work or a huge change in our lives, e.g. a bereavement, moving house, unemployment or divorce. But sometimes, the cause of stress can be something minor like finding it difficult to deal with children or feeling unappreciated at work. In other cases, there may be no identifiable cause. Not all stress is negative, as research has found that stress, at a moderate level, can actually improve our performance level. Small amounts of stress can also make us more …

I Get Said "No" To A Lot.

I Get Said “No” To A Lot.

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

I get said no to a lot. It’s the industry I’m in, I put myself out there – sometimes people vibe with it and sometimes they don’t. “It’s exactly how it’s supposed to go.” … One of these days I won’t have to keep saying it – I’ll know it – in my marrow: it’s exactly how it’s supposed to go, something bigger and better is on the horizon. But until I know it, I say it, I remind myself, and I share with y’all – Who are just as brave and courageous and putting yourself out on the line. So thank you for inspiring me.

Is POWER The Talent You Have That You’re Not Using? Consciously or unconsciously, you are pruning your life of everything that is not relevant to what you really are as a human being. Powerful. I think human beings are so fucking powerful. I think our minds and wills and hopes and belief systems can bend space and time, I don’t just think it, I know it, physics has proven it. “When two or more minds come together with the same intention, anything is possible.” – Napoleon Hill We’re all blenders, we are all a Vitamix, some of us are just plugged in.

Denmark Will Be The First Country On The Planet That Will Become 100% Organic!

by in Moving & Eating.

What could be more environmentally and socially advantageous than an entire country going 100% organic? The Danish government has actually announced that it will transform the entire country’s agriculture into organic and sustainable farming. This means that Denmark will be the first country on the planet to become 100% organic. Denmark is at the fore-front when it comes to organic items and how they trade with the world, nevertheless the Danish government has actually set a bigger challenge. The federal government has handled to raise a huge 53 million euros in 2015 in an effort to turn the nation into a 100% organic powerhouse. This is likely to be the …

It Pays To Find Your “Flow”

It Pays To Find Your “Flow”

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

It sounds like common sense: if you want to do more creative work, you work hard. Harder than everyone else. But meaningful work doesn’t have to lead to exhaustion at all: a few hours of total concentration and focus can change how you work and the progress you make. To attain peak productivity, you’ve got to have a plan. Your best work happens when you are in the mental state of flow. In positive psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process …

My Services Are Worth More Than This Latte

My Services Are Worth More Than This Latte

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Why is it that people still ask me to help them with advice — in exchange for coffee? Don’t get me wrong. I like coffee. And I couldn’t be happier that you are finally waking up and ready for big change. Or that you are leaving one job to start your own. (Congrats, you’re an inspiration.) But the “pick your brain” email has become something of a problem for many entrepreneurs. Work is work, inspiration is work, art is work, so all those people are essentially asking for free work. There’s no latte on Earth (even with Starbucks’ newly-raised prices) that would cover what my consulting, story for corporate, entertainment charges to come to your office, interview …

Everything Created Must First Be Imagined

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Einstein wasn’t just smart, I mean, yeah the dude was smart, but more importantly his imagination was BOOM BANG – out of this world! Literally and figuratively, he was imagining what others couldn’t, he saw what could be, and turned it into what is. IMAGINATION goes hand in hand with HOPE. IMAGINATION / HOPE HOPE / IMAGINATION It’s medicine. The medicine to explore what can be. For the sick and trauma filled I work with, through the power of story we tap into imagination, we tap into what was and what could be. This what could be, this imagination and hope is essential to recovery, essential to life. I gotta know there is …

We Have To Be Better Pigeons

We Have To Be Better Pigeons

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Why pigeons? Pigeons are everywhere. They are vegetarians, (unless they are in NY) which is sustainable. What is commonly referred to as a pigeon is actually a “Rock Dove”- which is cool. The pigeon has contributed to both World War I and II, notably by the Australian, French, German, American, and UK forces. Thirty-two pigeons have been decorated with the Dickin Medal for war contributions, including Commando, G.I. Joe, Paddy, and William of Orange. A grand ceremony was held in Buckingham Palace to commemorate a platoon of pigeons that braved the battlefields of Normandy to deliver vital plans to Allied forces on the fringes of Germany. Three of the actual …

Food— The Good Times And The Bad

Food— The Good Times And The Bad

by in Moving & Eating.

We still look to food to do much more than nourish our bodies and satisfy our hunger. We turn to food in times of great joy and great sadness. When something wonderful happens, we celebrate with a dinner out. We drink champagne, we eat cake, we splurge on nice meals. Food becomes part of the rejoicing. And the opposite is true, too. There’s a long tradition of providing food to those who are grieving. We band together to provide meals to friends in crisis—you may, at some point in your life, have signed up on a spreadsheet or email thread to bring meals to someone mourning, someone recovering, someone struggling. …

If You Ingest Without Excretion You Will Die

If You Ingest Without Excretion You Will Die

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

If you ingest without excretion you will die. You can not take in without letting out. This is true for food and knowledge. Knowledge without some outside function is toxic. Spiritual food without some sort of sharing is spiritual indigestion. We must let out for all that we put in. We must give for all that we take. Vice versa – we must put in if we let too much go.
