Too Blessed to be Stressed

April 26, 2007

Next time you are dealing with a stressful situation, remember “Too Blessed to Be Stressed.” When you are focused on your blessings, you won’t be thinking about your stress-ings!

When the work is piled high on your desk, think about how thankful you are to even have a job while so many are unemployed. When work is driving you crazy, think about the fact that you are healthy enough to work. When you are sitting in traffic, be thankful you can drive a car while so many have to walk miles just to get clean water. When the restaurant messes up your meal, think about how many unfed mouths there are in the world. And as I told my dad who lost the love of his life, my mother, “You had the kind of love for so many years that many people spend a lifetime searching for and never find. Let’s be thankful for that.”

Just as the sun is always shining behind the clouds, there is always something to be thankful for in the midst of a stressful-dark moment. When you remember you are blessed, you won’t be stressed. When you’re feeling down and blue, remember the words “Thank You” and say “I’m Too Blessed to Be Stressed.” This will help you not only find joy and peace in the Magic Kingdom, but also experience the magic in everyday life.

What Stops People From Changing Their Lives?

April 20, 2007

By Dr. Harlan Kilstein

I’ve dealt with a lot of personal changes issues over the years.

I’ve seen people make radical changes in their lives in just minutes.

I’ve also seen people who have gone to therapy for years and are stuck in the same place as when they stared.

Guess what makes the difference?

It’s the mindset.

If someone tells me they don’t think something is going to work. They’re right.

If someone tells me they know something is going to work. They’re right.

Our mind creates our reality.

People who are locked in to the road to failure sometimes are so used to failure they want to stay in that comfort zone.

But then there are those who are so fed up of not living the life of their dreams and want to take action.

ARE YOU TAKING THESE SUPPLEMENTS?

April 15, 2007

The simplest health boosters.

If you were to stop a Men’s Health editor in the hallway and ask him what supplements or pills he took this morning, he’d respond: “Who are you? And what are you doing in our hallway?”

But after introductions, he’d be happy to tell you. Some of the guys (the muscular ones) use creatine and various protein powders.

But the most common answers you’d hear would be:

  1. A multi-vitamin.
  2. An aspirin.
  3. Fish oil.

Two pills and a packet of goop: 30 seconds.

The multi-vitamin is just smart. The aspirin is for guys who know it could save their heart. The fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, is for your heart and everything else. (And we wash it all down with green tea.)

Omega-3’s are one of the most thoroughly studied supplements. It’s pretty clear it cuts your risk of heart disease, prostate cancer, stroke, asthma and arthritis.Just today there was more news about fish oil.

Read about it here…


The Supplement Every Man Needs

April 15, 2007

We know you don’t eat much fish. (We’re not spying; all the studies say so.)

But you should definitely take fish oil every day. It’s becoming the go-to supplement of the 21st century, like aspirin and multi-vitamins back in the last century. It helps your heart, protects you from cancer, and basically helps you live a long, healthy life, like all those Icelanders who eat so much fish.

Today’s news contains more reasons to start slurping up a packet (or take a capsule) every day: it’ll keep your brain young, and specifically, your vocabulary robust. The stuff fights Alzheimer’s in old guys, and protects the “verbal fluency” of middle-age men.
It’s the no-brainer supplement for your brain.
