Life doesn’t get much better!

Sure we have our ups and downs, ins and outs, ahead and behind, we can go on and on, it’s just called balance, everything in life has balance.

We breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide, plants do the opposite.

The tide rises and then retreats, there is day and then night.

So what’s the big deal about setbacks?? They’re only balanced by comebacks.

And challenges…love ’em, they are just balanced by opportunities.

WOW, what a world we live in…it doesn’t get much better than that.

It’s easier to give than to take?

Yes, when we are talking about our daily calorie intake.

Most of our calories we take in per day is “usually” around the same amount as we are often considered creatures of habit…if we stick to meals and nothing in between.

But is is much easier to “give” our daily calorie intake a bit more than it is to “take” some calories away.

Most “splurges” associated with foods,  contain about as much calories as a meal, and a splurge is something we do in addition to a meal, before, after or in between.

Just understanding that it is much easier to splurge than to take away an entire meal,  is what needs to be remembered.

Stop chasing…

And start embracing!

Got that one from my friend Snowy, National Sales Manager at Oneill!

We may all feel like we are chasing our own tail, in these times, and we need to start embracing what is real in our lives.

Let’s focus on what really matters…like our friends and family, and be thankful for all  that we have.

Tough times pass – they always do, so let the negativity be around our lives, but not within our lives.

Acknowledgment and Recognition…

Are on the “Top of the List” of the things people desire most in their personal and business life.

Starting with ourselves, is the best way to get what we deserve, without relying on any external input…which we can’t always count on.

When was the last time you really acknowledged or recognized yourself for a job well done? On a daily basis, I hope…for it not only gives you the “pat on the back” that you have earned, but a great motivator for the future “jobs well done”.

So make a habit of doing the internal rewarding…your pride and self esteem will thank you.

“Looks like she fell out of the…

Giving tree and hit every branch on the way down”.

That would be a pretty sweet thing people could say about us…it’s all about our “Brand” – and a brand is just about what people say about us, not what we say about ourselves.

So what is your “Brand”? Is it good, bad or in between?

Remember, it’s not what you say about yourself, it’s what others say about you.

And it comes from what you do and how you do it – keep this in mind, when you want to create a brand for yourself.

Breathing…

It’s something we need to do.

We can go without food for weeks, water maybe days and without air…most likely not more than about 2 minutes.

Yes, it’s pretty important…nearly all functions of our body, down to the cellular level  are aerobic, meaning they need oxygen.

Yet, in our daily routine, most of us just sit and move less than the past which brings our respiration to a very shallow level, giving us just the minimum amount of oxygen in order to survive but not thrive.

Breathing more deeply will not only allow our body to function better, but oxygen is also an antiseptic.

Will you take this challenge?: Breathe deep 10 times s-l-o-w-l-y in and out and if you have the patience to finish 10 deep breathes – see how you feel…you may want to put it in your daily health routine:)
