Multi Tasking


Multi-tasking isn’t just a word we toss around anymore— it’s now a very real way of life! Without it, many things would go undone. But with it, we have the chance to use our time efficiently and productively. Even when it comes to meeting our physical fitness needs!
As the owner and operator of three separate businesses, I have to multi-task every single day! Since one of my jobs is to inspire you to be healthier, I have a few tips on how to infuse your everyday “To-Do List” with several mini, but mighty, workout moves. Use these simple suggestions and you’ll not only cross items off your chore list, you’ll be on your way to a fitter, more-fabulous, YOU!
First off, the next time you’re wiping down your countertops, use small circular motions, moving your arms forward and back. Think about igniting your core as you bend to reach across the surface, pressing your dishrag down with intention and force. Bam! Your arms just received a workout, and your tummy just became a little bit tighter!
Next, re-think your chore of vacuuming floors! It can be about more than just achieving lint-free carpet! Add in leg lunges every time you push the handle forward, moving from one side of the room to the other. Turn and repeat, back to the other side, lunging on your other leg! Bam, Bam! Two tasks done for the price of one! Your legs shape up right along with your floors!
No matter what you do, remember to tighten your abs, ignite your core. Squat, lift, twist, and turn. Use your body to its fullest potential, and before you know it, you’ll become a “clean, mean, fightin’ machine!”

Feeding Body and Mind

I'm sure you have heard this before, "What you put into your body is what you get out". It's the rule in physical health-if you feed your body with alcohol, caffeine and nicotine, while you avoid fruits and vegetables you will become nervous , sick, overweight and depressed.

It's the same concept in mental and emotional  health."What you put into your mind is what you get out".  If you feed  your mind with  worry, fear, anger, with no self-discipline you will lose control over your mind and emotions. Your spirit gets agitated and you lose balance.

This reminds of a story I read awhile ago and I am going to share it here:

                                       THE TWO WOLVES
A young boy came to his grandfather, filled with anger at another boy who had done him injustice.
The grandfather said to his grandson, let me tell you a story:

"I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and hate does not hurt your enemy . Hate is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feeling many times.

It is as if there are two wolves inside me, one wolf is good and does no harm. he lives in harmony  all around him and doesn't take offense when no offense is intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so and in the right way. The other wolf is full of anger and the smallest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger because his anger will change nothing. Sometimes it is hare to live with these two wolves inside me, because both of the wolves try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his grandfather's eyes and asked,

"Which one will win, grandfather?"

The grandfather smiled and said , "The one I feed."
