6 reasons why getting back in shape can spice up your love life

6 reasons why getting back in shape can spice up your love life

Getting in shape and getting that body of your dreams can do wonders for your relationship, even if it means taking time to be alone or get away from the kids to get to the gym. Exercise is one of those sort of selfish things that we do for ourselves that ends up making us better and happier people, and better happier people usually end up making other people better and happier too. It may sound weird that taking 5 hours a week to spend away from your partner could make you both happier, but it really is true; getting yourself into a good level of fitness can offer several benefits to you and your relationship: you will look better, you will have more energy, you’ll be more confident, you will have more magnetism, you will have a better (ahem) performance, and people who are fit are just generally happier people; all of these benefits can make for a better relationship read on to find out how.   You will look better Getting fit means you are going to have a better body, and everyone likes a better body right? We live in a world of 6 pack abs, shining smiles, and figures with perfect proportions, and while your partner probably loves you like you are, they are going to have no problems touching those new abs of yours. People like being with people who look good, there is nothing like truly feeling that the person you are with is the most attractive person in the world.     You will have more energy People who exercise and maintain...
Defense mechanisms: How your way of coping with the world prevents your growth.

Defense mechanisms: How your way of coping with the world prevents your growth.

You are awful. Seriously terrible. I mean you just plain suck!   Did you feel that anger boiling up inside of you just a little bit? Or, did you start thinking of all the reasons why what I was saying wasn’t true? Or, did you feel your defenses raise up to safeguard you from the mean things that I was saying? If you felt anger, disgust, an overwhelming urge to exit out of this article, or even a sense of pride start bubbling up inside of you, then you my friend just experienced your confidence preservation mechanism kicking in. By the way, I didn’t mean all those things that I said about you, I was just trying to prove a point.   So what is a confidence self preservation mechanism? A self preservation mechanism is a complex process that takes place in your mind; it is activated anytime your idea of who you are (your ego) is threatened. Imagine that you see yourself as a lighthearted and fun person, and then all of a sudden, one of your friends starts telling everyone how serious you are; they tell you to lighten up, they tell that you need to learn to relax, and they tell you that you need to let go and have more fun. If you have a pretty strong inclination that you are an easy going and fun person, chances are your defenses are going to spring up pretty quickly. At first you might try to laugh it off (diffuse the situation), then you might try to act like they never said it at all (denial),  you...

How to turn bad habits into powerful opportunities for personal growth

How to turn bad habits into powerful opportunities for personal growth

I know what you are thinking… “How could spending 4 hours per day surfing random videos on Youtube and checking Facebook possibly be a good thing? Not your problem, ok, let me try again… “How could buying a gym membership but only going once in 6 months; or promising to eat better but then going on a junk food binge after only 2 days of dieting: how could these things be good things?” Alright, if I still haven’t gotten you yet, I think this one will… “How could the fact that I never do that thing… (yeah you know THAT thing), that thing that you always say you should do, will do, could do, but never actually do…how could that possibly be a good thing?” Well you are in luck, because the fact that you realize you have a bad habit that needs to change is a step in the right direction. Even more so, it means that you fit in with 100% of other human beings in the world, because just like everyone else on the planet, you aren’t perfect!   I know I am certainly not perfect Despite devoting the past year and half to becoming better, learning new skills, becoming more fit and productive, I still have room for improvement. Just understand this fact right now…you will never be perfect, you will never achieve your full potential, and you will never reach some magical moment where you turn from a worm into a butterfly and fly away- off into the sunset. That being said, bad habits aren’t really all that bad as long as you identify...
How snacking more can help your health

How snacking more can help your health

We have all heard the advice to eat more frequent meals, eat smaller meals, and to snack more often, but why have we heard so much about this theory, and what benefits can be gained from snacking more and eating less? Snacking more can offer several benefits to people who are looking to get healthier, build muscle, or lose weight. Snacking can encourage you to eat less, it helps you to eat more healthy foods, it helps with portion control and portion sizing of food, and it can help you maintain your energy levels and preserve your muscle mass.   Snacking helps you to eat less While eating more snacks may sound like the last thing that can help you eat less throughout the day, it actually can greatly help your progress in portion control and the amount of food that you eat. When we get super hungry, not only are we more likely to eat unhealthy foods, but we are more likely to eat more. When our stomachs get empty, we often become desperate and the only thing we can think of is when we are going to eat next and how much we are going to eat in one sitting. Snacking helps prevent us from becoming famished, and in doing so, decreases the chances that we will overeat. It takes a little bit of time for our bodies to process what we eat before we start feeling full, so when we allow ourselves to become ravenous animals seeking out anything to eat, we will often eat at a rapid pace that leaves us stuffed, before we have...
