The Most Innovative Things Happening In life

 Listen as Tony Robbins and Les Brown motivate you to succeed in 2019 and beyond. Learn how to be a creator of your life rather than a manager of your life.
We are not made to survive, were made to thrive. Human beings, our spirit, our capacity to adapt, our ability to grow, our ability to learn with lightning-like speed, our ability to find a way to serve others, that calling inside of us that we have as a parent or as a friend or someone who truly cares when we put our fear aside because there’s something we want to serve greater than ourselves – we all have that ability to find that passion in our life.
A lot of people start out with a new year and it becomes a trigger for a possibility of a new life. But that disappears after a few disappointments, after coming up with a few New Year’s resolutions that within a week or two they’ve already broken.
I’m going to talk to you about just the simple core of what you and I are made for. We are not made to survive. We’re not made to manage our pain or get through it. We’re made to be creators of our lives. We can create anything! Anything we can dream about we can create.

I know that sounds like positive thinking (just BS), but in your soul they have been times in your life, I know, when you’ve had something that you wanted so much. Maybe you wanted something for someone you care about. Maybe you want something for yourself. But you became so obsessed with something – achieving it, experiencing it,  whether it was a transformation, you know, in yourself, a change in your business…
Somewhere in your life you got obsessed enough to really want to create something that you may not have even known how you were going to do it. But you just wanted it, desired it that you started all of a sudden taking action, and you got insights. And before you knew it what used to be just this Impossible Dream became a reality.
Is it fair to say that in some stage in your life that there are some things today in your life that were once just a dream or a goal, that once seemed difficult or impossible, whether it be the job you have or the relationship you’re in and might be taking for granted. Is it is there anything in your life today that was once like that? Well then, you and I are creators.
And very often, when we get overwhelmed by so many things we feel out of control by, we start getting to being managers of our life – managing our pain, managing through the situation.
You’ve got to allow yourself to be able to take advantage of uncertainty. Yes, the world is uncertain right now! Uncertainty is change, change is life. We both know that. We all know that. But if you and I are going to become masters, we have to understand that we don’t have to work on change. Change is automatic, progress is not.
If you’re not going to make progress, progress comes when you tell yourself the truth and you’re able to feel the uncertainty and take action anyway. 
The thing that stops us all is fear. It’s no surprise: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear  of not looking good. And that fear we could translate into the simple thing of uncertainty. Great leaders know how to step into the uncertainty and bring the certainty to the situation.
Most people in life, we really feel like the level of stress in our life comes to how much of life do you feel like you control? Or how much does life control you? Do you tend to control more of what’s going, on are events controlling you? It’s very easy that those events start to take control unless we take control of what’s between our ears – our own mind
You see, what you and I focus on massively affects how we feel – whether we’re thriving or surviving. If you focus on what you can’t control, if you focus on the past, if you focus on what’s missing from your life constantly, that pattern of focus will make you frustrated, overwhelmed, depressed. Focus equals power. If you want to thrive, you got to focus on what you can control. You got to focus on the difference you can make. You’ve  got to focus on what’s already in your life that you’re grateful for.
So one thing that leaders do is they focus on the things they want, they focus on what they can control, they focus on what they have. They have a combination of gratitude, strength, and commitment. They really unleash the second element: they have a vision. They have something that they’re after, something they want to create, something they want to contribute, something they want to give, something they want to make happen. And that’s when they become a creator again instead of a manager of life. 
And it’s easy to lose that sense of vision in your life through disappointments. Hey, we’ve all had them. What makes somebody a leader is they build this certainty, and not only with focus, and not only do they get a vision for what they want, but they bring that certainty into their body.
We don’t realize is that our mind is directly affected by the way we use our body. If you change the tempo what you move, if you change the way you breathe, if you change the way you use your voice, you literally change your biochemistry. It’s something that you make as a habit. You drill it into yourself.
If you envision something clearly enough and you bring certainty to it over and over again, if you engage your physical body, you get yourself moving and you get yourself in a state of certainty in the way you move and the way you breathe, you focus on what you’re excited about in your life, you focus on what you want to create, what you want to bring to your children, what you want to bring to the world – and it changes your state!
We all know what happens when you’re out of state, when you’re burnt out, when you’re frustrated, when you’re overwhelmed, you snap and then people sometimes feel bad about it. You didn’t mean to – it’s just the state you’re in.
So to thrive this year take uncertainty and bring certainty to it. To thrive this year, get what I call a compelling future. Pick anything! A goal, a dream, a desire – something that excites you so much that you’re going to feel yourself compelled to actually find a way to make it happen. 
You’ve done it before: you’ve gotten obsessed. You didn’t even know how you did it, but things happened and you’ve got yourself to where you want to be. Let’s make that happen this year right now – regardless if it’s later in the year or it’s the beginning of the year. You’re made to thrive not survive. 
Nothing changes your life like decision. I mean real decision now. And when you make a decision, you cut off from any possibility except the thing you’ve committed to. If you make a real decision – every bit of you is committed to something – it’s amazing how life will move from the force of nature of a human being, man or woman, who says this is how it will be. I don’t know how I’m going to get it done. But I know this is what I’m going to do. And, I know why I’m going to do it. 
Any man hasn’t figured out what he’s willing to die for isn’t fit to live. If you can find something you’re so excited about, if you can find something that will drive you with that certainty, and you add to that decisiveness – you can change anything!
Decisiveness is the ability to make a decision even though you’re uncertain, once again. What keeps you from making a decision? Fear of failure. If you’re going to lead your own life, you got to make decisions. Make the decision! If it’s right or wrong, you’re going to find out quicker than if you sit around.
And the interesting thing is the more you make decisions, the better you get. What makes somebody a leader? What makes somebody a leader is they’re willing to make the decisions other people won’t make. They’re willing to put themselves on the line, knowing that they’re going to be wrong in some of those decisions. But you’re going to find out quicker and you can simply adapt and change your approach to still get where you want to go. Be decisive!
Don’t like your body? Change it. Don’t like your relationship? Change it. Start by changing YOU. And, if you’ve changed you and it’s still not right, then change it.
But the way you make any change happen starts with a decision. All action, all results are mother or fathered, if you would, by decision.What’s one small decision you can make right now that would take in a direction you know you need to go?
What’s a big decision that might be really tough?
But if you really made it, truthfully it would take you on a new direction in your life, because whatever direction you head into will lead to an ultimate destination or destiny. When you know, what’s right, it’s time. When you’re still fearful, it’s still time. You want to change your life? Decide! Decide something you’re going to do. Decide something radical. Commit to an act moves you forward instead of thinking more. Because we all can get caught up.
You get in your head you’re dead. The brain is a great thing to strategize with, but there’s a point where you’re going to get back in your heart and you’ve got to put yourself on the line and do something.
So if you’re going to thrive this year, bring certainty to your decision-making by just putting yourself in that state and trusting. Trust you’re a creator, not just a manager of life. What do you have to do? Get a vision for what you want. 
What else? Decide. There is no such thing as decision without action. A real decision, you… make it happen. You do something.
Never leave the site of making a decision to something that’s important without doing something in that moment that commits you to follow through. Take some action in that moment.
Life isn’t happening to me, life is happening for me! Even this pain or challenge or this opportunity is something that you’re going to find a way to make use of. I need to make a decision and I need to do something right now to move things forward in the direction of what I really want for my life. Even if I don’t know the final destination, I need to move in that direction. I need to take some form of action.
Most people have all these visions. Maybe they start to make a little sort of decision, but they don’t make a real decision because they don’t act on it. And if you don’t act on it, your ideas, your dreams will die in your mind. They’ll die on your lips.
Find the way to thrive on the very things that stop other people in their tracks. Thrive and what produces fear inside you and in other people. Thrive on something that you envision that you have a higher purpose for. Thrive by being decisive. Thrive by taking massive action. And if the massive action doesn’t work, what you try doesn’t work, just simply try something else. And if that doesn’t work, try something else. That doesn’t work. Try something else until you find what works!
Now, you can speed that up by modeling. By finding somebody who’s already getting the results that you want to get in your life. Somebody who truly is happy, not because everything’s going their way, but because they find a deeper meaning and a richness and everything around themselves – whether it be their children or nature or even problems.
Because obviously if we had no problems you feel dead inside. Problems can either destroy you or call you to become more. If you look at the biggest challenges in your life, if you brought certainty to it, if you brought a vision beyond the problem, if you made some decision of what you’re going to change even if you didn’t know how, and if you took immediate action with enough intensity, massive action, you probably found the cure all. You probably found a way to adapt and get where you want to be. That’s what thriving is really all about. 
But the ultimate thriving is not just breaking through and making things happen. To be open to thriving this year or any year of your life, is to remember the secret to living is giving. As corny as that sounds, it’s to connect to something bigger than yourself.
Here’s something else: it’s possible you can live your dream. If I can see it, I’ll believe it. No, no, no, no! If you believe it, you can see it!
You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case you fail by default.
You’ve got to be willing to go into action. Don’t wait around for things to be just right. Don’t wait for things to be perfect. Don’t wait for the ideal situation. It will never be ideal.
You think it was easy? No. No, it’s simple, but it’s not easy.
It’s possible you can live your dream. It’s necessary that you have goals, that you write them down, that you surround yourself with the support team, and that you are creative. You must take personal responsibility to make it happen. George Bernard Shaw said the people that make it in this world look around for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them they create them. It’s hard! No, easy is not an option. However, ladies and gentlemen, what you will discover is that it’s worth it. It’s worth it.
You must work on yourself continuously. Never be satisfied with yourself. Always know that as you invest the effort and time on you, that’s the greatest ability that human beings have above animals. See a dog can’t be anything but a dog. A tree can’t be anything but a tree. Human being, you’ve got unlimited potential. You can put effort on you and by concentrating on you and developing you, you can transform your life wherever you are right now.
But you’ve got to put a new mind and you. You’ve got to get out of your mind. You got to begin to restructure your thinking every day. You got to begin to recondition your mind. See many of us go through life making choices thinking it’s our choices…
You’ve got to die as you are now, you’ve got to be willing to give up who you are now for what you can become. Certain things will no longer fit into your life.
And so therefore as you look at yourself, you’ve got to have a vision of yourself beyond your circumstances.
You want to live life with energy and passion.You’re going to get some ideas. You can feel your adrenaline flowing and you’ve got to think about something, some idea I you had. You say  I want to go back and I’m going to look at that again! And you’ll get all kind of creative ideas.
So every day you have to sell yourself and get out of your mind those old thoughts, that old belief system. Every day you’ve got to sell yourself on that it’s possible.
That you have the vision and never give up, that you become creative and relentless and keep on coming back again and again and again, and that it’s you that you’ve got to take personal responsibility to make it happen. And that it’s hard. Easy is not an option. And when life knocks you down, jump back up and say: “It’s not over until I win!”

No matter how bad it is or how bad it gets, I’m going to make it!  Say that to yourself everyday.

How to Improve Your Memory

How to Improve Your Memory

Those first signs of slipping memory can be a little alarming – especially if you know the dreariness of that route. You may first see it in your 40s, or even younger, with memory loss symptoms like slower facial recall or where you left your keys.

What groceries were you supposed to buy? Wait – you forgot your grocery list at home.

While it’s normal to forget things on occasion, it’s a pattern to watch. The makers of Brain Pill natural memory supplement believe it’s important to keep your brain active. Challenge your memory – just like a muscle, give your brain a good workout daily with these memory-boosting tips courtesy of Brain Pill:

Use Your Memory Daily – Your brain needs a workout just like the rest of you. It’s a case of ‘use it or lose it’, so use your brain every day. Try crosswords, for example, or read a section of the newspaper you’d normally skip. You might also take a different route to work, for example, or learn another language or how to play a musical instrument.

See Your Friends – You’re not an island, dude. Depression and stress can both lead to memory loss, which is why you’ll want to socialize often – especially if you live alone. Be with others and take them up on their invitations. Life gets better when you do.

Organize Your Life! – You lose points with a cluttered home because you’re more likely to forget stuff. So make lists and notes of appointments and things to do in a special notebook or on your calendar. Heck, download an app on your iPod and write down what needs to get done. Speak it out loud too, to reinforce it in your memory, and check-off your tasks when completed.

While we’re on the subject, try to stay focused on the task at hand and limit distractions. You’re more likely to recall information if you concentrate specifically on that rather than multi-tasking. Put another way, focus on what you want to remember later and you’re in better shape to remember it quickly.

Sleep Well – Shut-eye helps your memory. Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep each night. So make time for adequate rest – go to bed earlier if you have to and work on your sleep hygiene. Your memory will thank you when you try to remember stuff the next day.

Eat Healthy – Do you see a pattern here? Your memory likes healthy living. That extends to your diet, with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Opt for low-fat protein, like fish and skinless poultry. Drink plenty of water too, and watch the alcohol intake.

Exercise Daily – This boosts blood flow throughout your body. That includes your noggin. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity (like walking) each week, says the Department of Health and Human Services, or 75 minutes of something with greater intensity, like jogging, though even a few 10 minute brisk walks per day will suffice in a pinch.

Stay in Touch With Your Doctor – Chronic conditions can affect your memory, to say nothing about the rest of your health. So follow your doctor’s recommendations, be it for depression, your kidneys or anything else in your medical history. Review your medications often with your doctor as well – some medications can reduce your memory.

Try Brain Pill

We can’t end an article on how to improve your memory without mention of Brain Pill natural memory supplement. That’s because it’s simply rocket fuel for your brain; a cognitive booster with clinically proven nootropics like cognizine, vinpocetine and ginkgo biloba, which increase alertness and blood flow in your brain.

Studies also suggest the ingredients in Brain Pill enhance and may even protect memory. They don’t call it ‘Your Unfair Advantage’ without good reason – better memory is linked to higher cognitive function. Your brain is more efficient with a sharp memory, which gives you better intelligence, and the financial and social rewards that go with them.

Try Brain Pill to improve your memory. Combine it with the memory-boosting tips we’ve discussed in this article, and you really do have an unfair advantage. Your memory will like it too, and you may finally have a solution to that pain-in-the-butt issue of where you left your keys!

Restore Youthfulness Within and Regain Looks, Health, and Energy

Restore Youthfulness Within and Regain Looks, Health, and Energy

Getting older, although a undisputable fact of life, is still something that many of us relish. Although gaining experience and knowledge is a good thing, feeling older and looking older is not necessarily something that all of us look forward as we age. But why do we have to look and feel old? Who said we couldn't retain some of that youthful glow even as the calendar clicks by? Well the team of researchers who have been working on the revolutionary product GenFX couldn't agree more.

GenFX is an amazing anti-aging tonic that not only makes you feel younger, but it makes you look younger as well. GenFX is a unique anti-aging releaser that helps a myriad of symptoms of aging that we are susceptible to including:

  • Memory loss
  • Decrease in muscle mass
  • Loss of libido
  • Negative mood swings
  • Slower metabolism
  • Decrease in vision
  • And looking older!

If these are things that are affecting your life and making you wish you were twenty again, then the GenFX anti aging tonic could be exactly what you are looking for. The Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a naturally occurring hormone that starts to decrease in production around the age of 25. So as a result of your body's ability to produce less of this hormone, the adverse affects kick in, such as more wrinkles, more body fat, baldness, and osteoporosis among others.

The good news is that studies have proven that increasing the HGH production in your body actually has a positive effect on decreasing these symptoms of aging, meaning you will feel and look younger! HGH is a natural biological compound that is secreted by the human pituitary gland and so GenFX mimics that process and basically your body starts to replicate more HGH naturally.

So by taking the GenFX anti aging tonic you are essentially tricking your body into thinking you are still 25 years old. Soon a youthful glow will reappear, you will notice less wrinkles, your libido will increase dramatically, you will lose weight, and your confidence level will increase significantly. The side effects of GenFX will be so positive you will soon wonder what took you so long to start taking this supplement. The ingredients are a blend of amino acids and natural herbal components. This means that GenFX will work with your body to promote a safe and effective production of HGH. There are no side effects with this natural product and thorough clinical trials revealed no other adverse problems.

And now GenFX comes with a 90 day full guarantee, so if you give it try and are not fully satisfied with the results, you can return it for a full refund. So there is no risk and no obligation. But you will not even have to worry about that. Within weeks you will start to feel the results of this amazing product and start to look and feel younger. You will be thrilled with your increase in energy and your new outlook on life. You will look and feel great and wonder why you didn't try this amazing product before!

Causes of Hair Loss

Causes of Hair Loss

Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss is one of the body changes that most people fear of. Just like menopause, hair loss can easily divulge a person's age. But unlike menopause, which can be kept from everyone but yourself, hair loss can be detected or seen by almost everybody. At about the age of 35, the effect of hair loss can already be seen in men -- either their hair line recedes or a "dome" begins to appear at the back of their hair; some even experience both. In, it is stated that 65% of all men are suffering from the effects of hair loss and a majority of them have Male Pattern Baldness. Women, on the other hand, are affected by hair loss in a different way. Starting at the age of 30, their hair gradually thins out. By the age of 50 or shortly after their menopausal stage, the scalp becomes more noticeable because of lessened hair strands all over the head.

Different factors may cause hair loss. Aging and genetics are only a few. But in men, basically, it is caused by dehydrotestosterone hormone, or DHT. This hormone's chief purpose is to develop the traits of men such as deep voice, larger muscles, and mustache. However, it also develops Male Pattern Baldness. What this hormone does is it accumulates and develops in the DHT receptors found around the follicles of hair. As the hormone has established itself, it will eventually kill the hair as well as the follicle, making it hopeless for hair to grow back. According to, DHT production in women is as not as high as in men, hence, women do not suffer from the same radical hair loss as men do.

DHT increases as men age, killing more and more of the hair follicles. Excess production of DHT can lead to baldness. Although every person has this hormone, there are some who only produce enough amount of DHT. Fortunately, they are the ones not suffering from extreme hair loss.

Other factors for hair loss in both men and women are:

1. Disease or illness - Losing hair could be a sign of being unhealthy. Illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosis and syphilis, or thyroid disorder show hair loss as a symptom. Chronic kidney dysfunction may also cause lots of hair to fall as it makes them unhealthy, dry, and breakable.

2. Side effects of medications - Drugs that contain lithium, beta-blockers, warfarin, heparin, amphetamines, and levodopa (Atamet, Larodopa, Sinemet) can cause numerous hair to fall off. In addition, some medications being used in treating cancer like doxorubicin can cause rapid but temporary hair loss.

3. Hormones - Different kinds of hormones compromise the human system and an imbalanced production of those could affect the normal growth of hair. An example of this is women's menstrual cycle. Hormonal changes take place in the ovulation period that could cause some hair to lose, so as thyroid and pituitary disorders.

4. Zinc deficiency - Along with diarrhea and eczema, hair loss appears to be a symptom if one has inadequate intake or if the body poorly absorbs zinc.

5. Hair abuses - Too much treatments to hair such as coloring, perming, bleaching, corn rows, and usage of curling irons can wear out and eventually kill the hair. Even excessive use of comb and strong shampoo products can add up to hair loss. Combing the hair for about a hundred times will not really make it healthy; rather, it will lessen the strength of the hair and make it brittle. Shampoos' strong chemicals, on the other hand, can dry the hair up.

6. Giving birth - About a month after a woman gives birth, some of her hair strands have the tendency to fall off easily. Hair strands that fall off are usually from one portion of the head, leaving moon crater-like hair. The falling off of hair in this instance actually does not lead to baldness and it is not permanent, though the recovery period will take up to a year.

These and some other factors cause hair loss. There may be a lot, but the good thing is, there are also quite a lot with regard to medical options of treating this condition. Medicating hair loss can be done by undergoing surgical treatments like scalp grafting, taking oral medications like finasteride pills, or using topical applications such as ProFollica�.

Each treatment is different in approaches, processes, requirements, and applications. For example, hair loss surgery is a proven effective method and so are pills. But both can only be applied to and taken by men. The surgery is usually recommendable to severe cases of hair loss, while pills like finasteride can cause harmful effects to women. Perhaps, the most convenient way to address hair loss treatment, for both men and women, is through applying topical products. This kind of remedy, like ProFollica�, usually comes in a system. This system has natural ingredients, which make it safe for anyone's usage with hair loss condition. It is up to the person and to the doctor, if he is to consult one, what treatment he'll rather or willingly try.

Old beliefs, such as cap wearing bringing about hair loss or combing the hair more than one hundred times will make it healthier, have long been proven untrue. With some tips and causes given above, indeed, knowing the right causes will make one smart on choosing the right solutions.

When Do You Know You Are Emotionally Mature? 26 Suggestions

  1. You realise that most of the bad behaviour of other people really comes down to fear and anxiety – rather than, as it is generally easier to presume, nastiness or idiocy. You loosen your hold on self-righteousness and stop thinking of the world as populated by either monsters or fools. It makes things less black and white at first, but in time, a great deal more interesting.

  1. You learn that what is in your head can’t automatically be understood by other people. You realise that, unfortunately, you will have to articulate your intentions and feelings with the use of words – and can’t fairly blame others for not getting what you mean until you’ve spoken calmly and clearly.
  1. You learn that – remarkably – you do sometimes get things wrong. With huge courage, you take your first faltering steps towards (once in a while) apologising.
  1. You learn to be confident not by realising that you’re great, but by learning that everyone else is just as stupid, scared and lost as you are. We’re all making it up as we go along, and that’s fine.
  1. You stop suffering from impostor syndrome because you can accept that there is no such thing as a legitimate anyone. We are all, to varying degrees, attempting to act a role while keeping our follies and wayward sides at bay.
  1. You forgive your parents because you realise that they didn’t put you on this earth in order to insult you. They were just painfully out of their depth and struggling with demons of their own. Anger turns, at points, to pity and compassion.
  1. You learn the enormous influence of so-called ‘small’ things on mood: bed-times, blood sugar and alcohol levels, degrees of background stress etc. And as a result, you learn never to bring up an important, contentious issue with a loved one until everyone is well rested, no one is drunk, you’ve had some food, nothing else is alarming you and you aren’t rushing to catch a train.
  1. You realise that when people close to you nag you, or are unpleasant or vindictive, they usually aren’t just trying to wind you up, they may be trying to get your attention in the only way they know how. You learn to detect the desperation beneath your loved one’s less impressive moments – and, on a good day, you interpret them with love rather than judge them.
  1. You give up sulking. If someone hurts you, you don’t store up the hatred and the hurt for days. You remember you’ll be dead soon. You don’t expect others to know what’s wrong. You tell them straight and if they get it, you forgive them. And if they don’t, in a different way, you forgive them too.
  1. You realise that because life is so very short, it’s extremely important that you to try to say what you really mean, focus on what you really want, and tell those you care about that they matter immensely to you. Probably every day.
  2. You cease to believe in perfection in pretty much every area. There aren’t any perfect people, perfect jobs or perfect lives. Instead, you pivot towards an appreciation of what is (to use the psychoanalyst Donald Winnicott’s exemplary phrase) ‘good enough.’ You realise that many things in your life are at once quite frustrating – and yet, in many ways, eminently good enough.
  1. You learn the virtues of being a little more pessimistic about how things will turn out – and as a result, emerge as a calmer, more patient and more forgiving soul. You lose some of your idealism and become a far less maddening person (less impatient, less rigid, less angry).
  1. You learn to see that everyone’s weaknesses of character are linked to counter-balancing strengths. Rather than isolating their weaknesses, you look at the whole picture: yes, someone is rather pedantic, but they’re also beautifully precise and a rock at times of turmoil. Yes someone is a bit messy, but at the same time brilliantly creative and very visionary. You realise (truly) that perfect people don’t exist – and that every strength will be tagged with a weakness.
  1. You learn the virtues of compromise. You learn to settle in certain areas – and recognise that you’re being mature rather than weak when you do so. You might stay together with someone primarily for the children, or because you’re afraid of being alone. You might put up with some inconveniences because you know that a friction-free life is a mirage.
  1. You fall in love a bit less easily. It’s difficult, in a way. When you were less mature, you could develop a crush in an instant. Now, you’re poignantly aware that everyone, however externally charming or accomplished, would be a bit of a pain from close up. You develop loyalty to what you already have.
  1. You learn that you are – rather surprisingly – quite a difficult person to live with. You shed some of your earlier sentimentality towards yourself. You go into friendships and relationships offering others kindly warnings of how and when you might prove a challenge.
  1. You learn to forgive yourself for your errors and foolishness. You realise the unfruitful self-absorption involved in simply flogging yourself for past misdeeds. You become more of a friend to yourself. Of course you’re an idiot, but you’re still a loveable one, as we all are.
  1. You learn that part of what maturity involves is making peace with the stubbornly child-like bits of you that will always remain. You cease trying to be a grown up at every occasion. You accept that we all have our regressive moments – and when the inner two year old you rears its head, you greet them generously and give them the attention they need.
  1. You cease to put too much hope in grand plans for the kind of happiness you expect can last for years. You celebrate the little things that go well. You realise that satisfaction comes in increments of minutes. You’re delighted if one day passes by without too much bother. You take a greater interest in flowers and in the evening sky. You develop a taste for small pleasures.

  1. What people in general think of you ceases to be such a concern. You realise the minds of others are muddled places and you don’t try so hard to polish your image in everyone else’s eyes. What counts is that you and one or two others are OK with you being you. You give up on fame and start to rely on love.
  1. You get better at hearing feedback. Rather than assuming that anyone who criticises you is either trying to humiliate you or is making a mistake, you accept that maybe it would be an idea to take a few things on board. You start to see that you can listen to a criticism and survive it – without having to put on your armour and deny there was ever a problem.
  1. You realise the extent to which you tend to live, day by day, in too great a proximity to certain of your problems and issues. You remember – more and more – that you need to get perspective on things that pain you. You take more walks in nature, you might get a pet (they don’t fret like we do) and you appreciate the distant galaxies above us in the night sky.
  1. You cease to be so easily triggered by people’s negative behaviour. Before getting furious or riled or upset, you pause to wonder what they might really have meant. You realise that there may be a disjuncture between what someone said and what you immediately assumed they meant.
  1. You recognise how your distinctive past colours your response to events – and learn to compensate for the distortions that result. You accept that, because of how your childhood went, you have a predisposition to exaggerate in certain areas. You become suspicious of your own first impulses around particular topics. You realise – sometimes – not to go with your feelings.
  1. When you start a friendship, you realise that other people don’t principally want to know your good news, so much as gain an insight into what troubles and worries you, so that they can in turn feel less lonely with the pains of their own hearts. You become a better friend because you see that what friendship is really about is a sharing of vulnerability.

  1. You learn to calm your anxieties not by telling yourself that everything will be fine. In many areas, it won’t. You build up a capacity to think that even where things go wrong, they are broadly survivable. You realise that there is always a plan B; that the world is broad, that a few kindly souls are always to be found and that the most horrid things are, in the end, endurable.

12 Ways Intermittent Fasting Can Melt Unwanted Fat Fast

While browsing through some weight loss materials, I see this term that catches my attention…”weight loss resistance”. WOW! There is actually a term that describes my current situation perfectly, and there must be others like me. I am struggling with trying to reduce my weight by 15 more pounds, but my previous diets and exercises are no longer effective. I need a new approach. Maybe I need to try intermittent fasting for weight loss, but I need to research it thoroughly.


I am a cautious person, and I do not jump into something different without having some knowledge about the idea. Intermittent fasting for weight loss involves eating for a certain period of time and then not eating for a specified time period. According to certified dietitian Leslie Langevin of Whole Health Nutrition, the method works by getting your body out of storing fat and using stored fat for energy. This is the reasoning that explains the success of losing weight with fasting. Of particular interest is the idea that the dreaded word “diet” is not in any of the sources I read. Instead, intermittent fasting is a lifestyle change.

How Does Intermittent Fasting Help With Unwanted Weight?
Research indicates that intermittent fasting is an effective strategy for weight loss. There are several ways that eating and fasting helps you lose unwanted weight fast.
1. There are different models to follow
You are free from just one restrictive plan that some diets use. Find the model that works for you. This is not a starvation plan. Calories for consumption are available each day. You decide which days you want a lower amount of calories, or you choose how many hours you want to fast between meals. The most popular options are:
  • The 5/2 Plan (fast for 2 days).
  • The 18/6 Method (fast for 18 hours each day).
  • Alternate Day Fasting (fast every other day for 24 hours).
  • The 20/4 Plan (only eat during a 4 hour period).
There are more options available on the above link. Choose the eating and fasting windows that suit your lifestyle. How long you go without food is totally up to you.

2. Makes it easier to cut calories
Overall, you consume less calories. Less eating produces less calories. It is important to not over-indulge during eating periods. The only calories you need to count are the ones you consume on fasting days. The recommendations for caloric intake on fasting days are 500 calories for women and 600 for men.
3. The body burns fat faster and more efficiently
By fasting. you lose weight, reduce body fat percentages, and improve your overall health.
4. Allows for insulin levels to lower
Insulin increases after eating. During fasting, insulin decreases. According to Dr. Naiman, after 18-24 hours of fasting, insulin is at its lowest levels and this is a prime time for fat burning and cellular repair.
5. Reduces cholesterol
One of the benefits of weight loss is a reduction in cholesterol.
6. Increases hormone levels
Fasting triggers the production of human growth hormone. Increasing HGH promotes faster weight loss and more energy.
7. Natural pattern for our bodies
Based on our ancient ancestors’ eating patterns, we only need to eat when food is available. This approach increases the time that our bodies use stored energy. When your body uses stored energy, you lose weight.
8. You learn the difference between when you need to eat and when you want to eat
Being aware of when you need to eat helps to reduce these unhealthy eating habits:
  • Grazing all day long.
  • Mindless snacking before bedtime.
  • Emotional eating.
Studies show that when your body adjusts to this new pattern, it does not lead to any type of binge eating.
9. Increases metabolism
Some people may tell you that fasting decreases metabolism because you feel sluggish. This is simply not true. Fasting increases metabolism because your body relies on stored energy. One study of 11 healthy men shows that a 3-day fast increased their metabolism by 14%.
10. Less likely to cheat
Since intermittent fasting for weight loss is so easy to follow, it reduces the chances of participants cheating. It does not have diet restrictions that make us cringe. You can enjoy a meal and not feel guilty.

11. Easy plan to follow
All you have to do is eat, do not eat, and eat. There is no need to stress about good foods or bad foods. You do not need to measure foods. You simply eat reasonably and then stop eating for the time period that is best for you.
12. Affordable
This method for weight loss does not require membership fees or purchasing special meals. Actually, you should see a decrease in your grocery bill because you are eating less food.
The success of the intermittent weight loss plan is dependent upon a few factors:
  • Not overeating.
  • Not under-eating.
  • Finding the right model.
Intermittent fasting for weight loss has so many positive aspects, the biggest being that it provides weight loss success. In the future, we may hear more about fasting and its anti-aging and disease prevention abilities.
