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

How To Find Your True Life’s Passion and Purpose In order to awaken your true life’s purpose you need to be ready to accept ‘change’.

Let's Call It Finding Our Purpose

Let’s Call It Finding Our Purpose

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” ~George Eliot In a nutshell, lifestyle dezine embodies the attempt on your part to dezine a life of your choosing, whatever that looks like. It’s your life, your plan, and you call the shots. Just because your parents lived in a small town, got married at 17, and worked a 9–5 for 30 years, that doesn’t mean you have to do the same. You have choices and, with the growth of the web, your choices have compounded exponentially. You control your life and what happens in it, and, once you realize that fully, you give yourself room to grow, …

Plant Based Vegan Diets Most Effective For Weight Loss

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Plant-based, vegan diet most effective for weight loss  A new study by the University of South Carolina confirms one big draw of saying no to all animal products: the ability to shed weight faster than those who consume a diet that contains meat and dairy. Celebrating World Vegan Month may be the answer for those looking to shed a few pounds and gain other health benefits. The study, conducted by the university’s Arnold School of Public Health and published in The International Journal of Applied and Basic Nutritional Sciences, compared the amount of weight lost by those on vegan diets to those on a mostly plant-based diet, and those eating …

The Difference Between Routine and Ritual

The Difference Between Routine and Ritual

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

The Difference Between Routine and Ritual William James, at the dawn of modern psychology, argued that our habits anchor us to ourselves. As someone equally fascinated by the daily routines of artists and with their curious creative rituals, and as a practitioner of both in my own life, I frequently contemplate the difference between the routine and ritual, these two supreme deities of habit. They seem to be different sides of the same coin – while routine aims to make the chaos of everyday life more containable and controllable, ritual aims to imbue the mundane with an element of the magical. The structure of routine comforts us, and the specialness …

Too Much Facebook Leads To Envy And Depression

Too Much Facebook Leads To Envy And Depression

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Too many people walk around comparing our insides to peoples outsides. Constantly checking Facebook to see what your friends are doing could lead to some serious depression. A recent study conducted by researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Bradley University and the University of Missouri Columbia found that heavy Facebook (FB, Tech30) users can experience envy — which can ultimately lead to extreme sadness. The researchers surveyed 736 college students and found that, basically, if you quietly stalk your friends on Facebook and then realize that your life doesn’t measure up to theirs, you feel bad about yourself. “If Facebook is used to see how well an acquaintance is doing financially …

How Updating the Design of Your Home Can Improve the Energy of the Space

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

How Updating the Design of Your Home Can Improve the Energy of the Space Dane O’Leary It’s true that having a sleek, sophisticated home and being on the cutting-edge of what’s trendy gives your space that “Wow!” factor that’s sure to garner praise and envy. On the other hand, there’s nothing like having a home that evokes a sense of comfort, coziness, and homeyness — bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, the living areas; they all beg to be used, beckoning your guests to make themselves at home. But how can you ensure that your redesign will give that sense of coziness, that improved flow of energy and sense of hospitality, that …

It’s no coincidence that the world most successful people woke up and triumphed in the early hours of the day. Eager to begin doing what they love.

How To Take Care Of Yourself During A Bad Body Image Day

by in General, Moving & Eating.

How To Take Care Of Yourself During A Bad Body Image Day 1. Recognize that fat isn’t a feeling. It’s a word. There are always underlying emotions that we attach to feeling fat. When the “I feel fat” thoughts start up, try to identify what you’re feeling underneath the body dissatisfaction. Are you feeling lonely? Anxious? Invisible? Scared? Ashamed? Inadequate? Whatever the feelings are recognize that they are separate from your body. 2. Treat yourself as you would a friend. Because it’s difficult to be kind to ourselves in the moment when the body hating thoughts take over, try responding to your thoughts as if you were supporting a friend. …

12 Things Successful People Do Differently

by in General, Moving & Eating.

I’ve always been fascinated by people who are consistently successful at what they do; especially those who experience repeated success in many areas of their life throughout their lifetime.  In entertainment, I think of Clint Eastwood and Oprah Winfrey.  In business, I think of Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett.  We all have our own examples of super successful people like these who we admire.  But how do they do it? Over the years I’ve studied the lives of numerous successful people.  I’ve read their books, watched their interviews, researched them online, etc.  And I’ve learned that most of them were not born into success; they simply did, and continue to …

Did you know, you can quit your job, you can leave university? You aren’t legally required to have a degree, it’s a social pressure and expectation, not the law, and no one is holding a gun to your head. You can sell your house, you can give up your apartment, you can even sell your vehicle, and your things that are mostly unnecessary. You can see the world on a minimum wage salary, despite the persisting myth, you do not need a high paying job. You can leave your friends (if they’re true friends they’ll forgive you, and you’ll still be friends) and make new ones on the road. You …

Body, Mind, Soul. Connect All Three For Limitless Living.

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

Body, Mind, Soul. Connect all three for limitless living. It’s pretty hard to live a limitless lifestyle when you can’t get out of bed. Living a life full of vitality requires a connection between mind, body, and spirit. Like a link in a chain when one is broken the others become weak and vulnerable. How can you create an environment where those three things are aligned more often than they are not? I recently finished a book titled Body Mind Mastery by Dan Millman.

For most of the last two seasons (except for last weekend), the Seattle Seahawks have been the most physically prepared team in the NFL, a collection of perfectly honed athletes that can outrun and outmuscle opponents at will. The Seahawks’ secret weapon, though, just might be the team’s willingness to give a sports psychologist the freedom to roam the training facility, locker room and even the sidelines every game, to make sure their heads are as sound as their bodies. For nearly three seasons, Michael Gervais has spent three days a week with the team, instilling what he and …

The Movement Culture. Whenever I need a bit of physical inspiration, I reach out to Ido Portal and his movement culture.
