5 Daily Habits to Remain Highly Motivated

There’s nothing like being born naturally motivated. People are just people, all flesh, and bones but it’s the life they live that sets an example. It’s the habits that make you a success and a happy person. The richness of life doesn’t lie in vanity or workaholism but some simple, healthy habits.

If you often find yourself pining for motivation, follow these simple 5 habits:   

1. Do something as you get out of bed 

As you start getting things done, you will feel motivated without even trying. A lot of people don’t realize this but meeting deadlines will help you stay motivated. Getting things done indirectly helps you stay motivated as it gives you a sense of fulfillment. So, start your journey of getting things done as soon as you get out of bed. Try some yoga to keep yourself fit or just make your bed to avoid a messy bedroom. Don’t procrastinate your dog’s play hour. Wake up early every morning and take your dog out for a long walk. It won’t just give your pooch the exercise he/she needs but also refresh your mind.

2. Value even the smallest tasks you do 

People won’t tell you that driving a cab for a living or being a full-time nanny is a noble job. But perhaps, the outlook is old-fashioned.  Always connect the tasks you do every day and your job to something more valuable.

What do you think will happen if nannies stop doing their job because it isn’t noble enough? Well, a lot of working couples will have trouble raising their young children and balancing work. If drivers stop driving cabs, people will struggle with public transport a lot. So, it doesn’t matter how conventionally noble your job or anything you do is. You’ve got to be able to value it to understand the value of every little thing you do. Appreciate yourself for making a small difference every day.

3. Following and completing a to-do list

Whether you make one on Google Keep, Evernote or the good old notepad/stick-it notes, to-do lists are a great help. Journalizing the tasks you want to accomplish and crossing them off the list will surely help you stay motivated.

It’s a great way of feeling energized and pumped to accomplish other tasks with same vigor.

4. Be kind to self 

People are generally polite and emphatic to others but being kind to one’s own self is just as important. A guilt trip and self-critique are the biggest paralyzing factors. However, if you keep them in check, they might just motivate you. But you’ve got to be nicer to yourself. You don’t have to outshine everyone all the time. People make mistakes but don’t be too hard on yourself.

5. Don’t run away from responsibilities

When you start taking responsibility, you save yourself enormous time and energy that’s generally wasted in shifting blame. Soon as you grow accountable, you start taking relevant decisions and cut fluff and clutter from your life. People become more motivated when they know that they are accountable for the outcome. So, be responsible and do everything keeping in mind that the output depends on your own efforts.

Final words

You don’t have to wake up at 4 AM every morning and follow a crazy workout routine. Nor do you have to wear ostentatious suits to look professional. Little things like accomplishing small tasks soon as you wake up, accepting responsibility help you keep your spirits high.

You should be kind to self, learn from mistakes, move beyond paralyzing criticism to perform better. And, try following an organized method of accomplishing tasks to stay motivated. These habits will surely work their magic.

Find absolute power in Commitment and reach your goals

You need commitment! #simple

Mention commitment in a sentence, and you’ll have most guys and girls thinking of relationships and marriages.

But that’s not what we are going to do today. We are going to discuss how commitment can change your life.

I chose ‘commitment,’ and it turned my life around. I committed to a noble cause, the cause of removing all disempowering and toxic habits from my life.

It hasn’t been that long, but I noticed how much cutting myself from these habits has empowered me.

In the beginning, these commitments seemed hard. So naturally, I looked for support and joined some online groups. I found that we were all in this together and I had come a long way to give up now.

Don’t break

I have often read people saying that if you fail once, don’t stop, keep trying.

But think of this way: What if I follow a no-carb diet but slip and eat a cheeseburger on the 11th day? A guilty me would go back to the no-carb diet post the slip but what if I slip again?

You can’t take a break from your commitments on weekends or every 10 days. There are no vacations from commitments.

Slipping, following the routine, slipping again, back to the routine; no that doesn’t work. What do you think this vicious and perpetual cycle of slipping and routine will do?

Keep you from reaching your goals.

You or I don’t have to be so hard on ourselves because we slipped. But we can’t move over and over again.

Nor should we accept these little failures and motivate ourselves to move past them. No, don’t hold on to them but commit to never fail like that.

The key is to accept commitment wholeheartedly and never cave into the temptations.

Say no to almost  

No one likes scoring the second position. So, why accept the almost everything.

Would you eat an almost cooked steak? Then why accept almost successful?

Commitment is scary. But the lack of commitment is what’s keeping you and me from getting where we want to be.

You must be strong, and you will find absolute power in commitment.

Intermittent Fasting: A Great Way to Lose Weight

Did you know that nearly 40% of the US population is categorized as overweight?

Did you know that an average US millennial spends $1,429 on health?

All this might not come as a surprise. However, we wanted to discuss a rising popular method thats been helping many shed weight and increase their day to day energy levels with Intermittent Fasting.

The early onset of the 21st century witnessed a new trend to lose weight. The practice of Intermittent Fasting, with different models like Time-restricted feeding and alternate day fasting blended well with the diet plans for those who gave this method a try.

With Intermittent Fasting, the calorie intake redefines itself. In most of the diets, fat is the product of glucose breaking down into smaller fragments. But, under the influence of Intermittent Fasting, the food intake shifts gradually from a “Glucose” power source to a “Ketones” power source. Therefore, the diet shifts to a healthy fat intake.

How Intermittent Fasting Helps Establish This Model?

Normalizing Insulin

In the body, the Insulin does the task of a storage house. It stores energy and releases it as and when required for body build-up. In the Intermittent Fasting schedule, whether you are going for Alternate day fasting or time-restricted feeding, the burning of the fat for energy will regulate and process the fat burning in the body. In this way, there will be considerable loss of weight with alternate day fasting acting as a way out to manage and regulate the insulin.

Boost to Norepinephrine

Norepinephrine leads to alertness, arousal, and attention. As per the recommendations of the dieticians and doctors, it shouldn’t always be activated. During the tenure of the fasting, the Norepinephrine is induced, thereby, increasing the alertness, metabolism and fat burning. As a result, quick loss of weight follows. But at the time of Intermittent Fasting, enough exposure to physical work will be reflected in the health and well-being of the practitioner.

But, it is highly advisable to all those who are willing to practice Intermittent fasting to discuss with the dietician or doctor well beforehand and accordingly take the call.

Is CrossFit Your Cup Of Tea?

If you are going through hell, keep going!! Stopping in mid-way won’t serve the purpose!

This statement is more or less apt for CrossFit enthusiasts. In CrossFit, rigorous exposure to intense exercises makes this particular exercise challenging. CrossFit isn’t just about any layman; instead, it is for those who are passionate, energetic and excited to hit the gym. For such folks, hitting the gym ain’t about just losing the fat, shaping the body and a good physique, it is more about being passionate about the workout session that you can subject your body too.

Specific Dynamics of CrossFit

Being driven by Mob’s emotion and adrenaline rush and the necessity to amend things, no matter what cost they come at. These are two aspects juxtaposed for CrossFit training. It isn’t for everyone, if you have heard this statement, consider it Biblical, as it is that way around.

For most, CrossFit might be hard because it is tough, but it isn’t that way. CrossFit is not at all harsh; it is beyond explainable terms in words. It is more or less an emotion and fortitude of mind to do the stuff.

Why Do Not Many People Prefer to Get Enrolled in CrossFit?

Well, the reason is simple, and more or less, bank on target, you don’t have the balls to endure the rigorous wear and tear. In the CrossFit exercise, the individuals go through tough training sessions. Performing repetitive activities without rest wear and tears the muscle In most cases, muscle tears become grotesque. At the same time, with the Cross Fitters, the possibility of developing rhabdomyolysis is more.

It is a situation, in which the muscle fibers break down with a release in the bloodstream, and from there, they go to the kidney. At times, it becomes difficult for the organ like kidneys to filter bouts of fibers and hence kidney ailment gradually occurs.

How Does the Fraternity of Cross Fit Survive?

The fraternity of CrossFit built on resistance, willpower, and determination, shapes the health fraternity. In the training program, trainees get challenging exposure to a new way of building and developing muscles. The Cross Fitters are a different niche altogether. The only fuel that keeps them motivated is loud cheers of the comrades, the passion for standing unique and never-ending willpower.

A Word of Caution: Not for Those With A Weak Will Power: CrossFit Defying The Standard

Cross Fitters are Unique, and They are Different, and They are Resilient.

6 RANDOM THOUGHTS ABOUT NUTRITION

 

 

 

Avoid large portion sizes

American restaurants are particularly infamous for large portion sizes. Whenever eating out, it is best to eat until you are satisfied. Just because you have been served, does not mean you have to eat it.

“Healthy desserts” are not healthy

Gluten-free Desserts, vegan desserts or otherwise are not healthy. Just because they are marketed healthy it does not ensure that the calorie count is on the lower side of the scale. Vegan desserts are probably the biggest myth of keto diets.

What to do after a cheat meal?

There is no room for feeling guilty about cheat meals unless they are occasional. All you must do is back it up with hydration and high-intensity workout when you hit the gym. It is best to not hold the practice of gorging every week. A simple trick to achieve this is by practicing to eat the same thing on Monday as you would do during the weekend.

Relish Your Meals

Be grateful for the food on your plate. Chewing your meals properly and eating slowly also ensures proper assimilation and absorption of the nutrients during digestion.

Salads are complete meals

Salads with their fiber and protein content deliver a punch. With a lean cut of meat, lots of roughage and vegetables, they lower the frequency of hunger pangs during the wee hours that has the potential to derail your diet.

Pay Attention to your Food

Map the energy in your body after meals. Experiment and hit that sweet point. What kind of meals is making you energetic? Is it a salad? Is it a protein shake? Read your body’s reactions and plan your meals accordingly.

Why Your Sleep is a Priority

Without sleep, what are you?

Honestly, one cannot emphasize enough on how sleep affects your health. Read more to find out how.

Sleep’s Correlation with Weight Loss
Lack of sleep encourages untimely hunger pangs, increase in appetite and in turn, weight gain. This occurs because of the simple imbalance of two hormones in the system, ghrelin, and leptin. Ghrelin, on the one hand, results in hunger with a special affinity towards carbohydrates. Leptin, on the other hand, inhibits hunger. Now, how sleep affects your health is a slight shift in your sleep-wake cycle causes the levels of ghrelin in your body. This subsequently leads to increase in carbohydrate intake which when converted to fat can result in weight gain.

Sleep’s Correlation with Muscle Gain
The weekend warriors struggling to achieve the perfect six pack need their sleep too. Both duration and the quality of your sleep are key factors to muscle gain. Lack of sleep increases the cortisol levels in your blood. The cortisol levels initiate a catabolic cycle leading to the breakdown of your precious muscle. This process simply puts you back to square one. Wondering how to increase the rate of muscle gain? Do this. As little as 20-40 gram of good quality protein before bed can both decrease the rate of muscle breakdown and promote amino acid synthesis.

Sleep’s Correlation with Your Overall Well-being
Sleeping habits directly affect your mental health and sleep deprivation increases chances of clinical depression and anxiety. It affects your glucose tolerance levels which can lead to a higher risk of diabetes and obesity. Sleep deprivation, irrespective of whether acute or chronic, shows signs through your behavior. From decreased attention span, inadequate concentration in achieving results in simple tasks and memory retention, the consequences are indeed severe.

To reach the adequate amount of sleep required, simple everyday tricks are best practices. Setting a bed-time routine, meditation, limiting alcohol or caffeine intake are recommended. Within weeks of a set bedtime routine, you will experience the changes of how sleep affects your health in a positive way. Waking up tired is never an option!
