How To Start Losing Weight

Body image is crucial to a lot of people. If you currently struggle with your own body image due to excess weight, then you may feel self-conscious about the way you look. If you are ready to make a change to your life and weight, you need to learn how to start losing weight effectively.


To start with, you should see your doctor. Too many end up going on a diet and doing exercises without consulting their physician. This can be potentially dangerous, especially if you have a pre-existing condition. Consulting with your doctor can also help you gain some insight as to what kind of plan would work for your personal needs. After all, they already know a lot about your health.


You need to create a written plan. This plan should detail what your goals are and hat steps you have to take to get there. Putting it in writing helps you clearly see what needs to be done to get to your goal. For instance, if you want to run a  marathon, list that and put what hurdles you need to go through in or…

Creating a Personal Development Plan

Creating a personal development plan can transform an individual’s life. It can help a person get in touch with their internal feelings, determine exactly who they want to be, and how they want to live their life. A personal development plan is often used by younger individuals that are constantly bombarded by peer pressure. However, adults can benefit greatly by creating their own personal development plan, to take the single step forward to transforming a life.


What You Admire


It is imperative to first decide exactly what types of characteristics you admire and other individuals, and would like to internalize on your own. These might be the types of characteristics that are easy to measure such as staying physically fit. It might include taking on a better and healthier diet, or living a life full of integrity.



Choosing the right types of characteristics that you find in other individuals that you admire should be on the top of the list. Decide which three characteristics you would…

Combining Physical And Mental Personal Development For Greater Success

I am an advocate of doing personal development daily. You should listen to motivational recordings on a daily basis to improve your mental outlook and your focus. You should read motivational books daily to strengthen you motivation using another modality. You should exercise daily to improve your body and your mind. Where are you going to find the time to do all of these things? The answer is combining your physical and mental personal development. Let me tell you about my favorite method.


I am a walker. My favorite form of exercise is to get outside and walk fast. It gets the heart pumping faster, the blood flowing freely, and gives me time to use my mind. Walking does not require intense thought. I walk approximately one hour every day. I use this same time to listen to motivational audio recordings. I take my MP3 player with me when I head out for my morning walk. I have the player loaded with recording from top motivational speakers like Tony Robbins, David Wood, Jim Rohn, and e…

How To Ramp Up Your Weight Loss Efforts

If you are looking to add a little extra get up to your weight loss efforts, then you have to think creatively. Weight loss is a way of life, and it means that you actually keep the weight off afterwards too through lifestyle changes that you make. So let me tell you about some things I've been doing lately to help my efforts when trying to lose weight.



I really focus on my exercise plan. There are two things here that I make sure that I do. First, I make sure that I commit myself to each workout and do not miss any of them. In order to do this, I switch up activities often, and I find people to work out with. This keeps me inspired and motivated. Second, I do things outside of my exercise regimen that find me getting that extra activity in each day. For instance, I take a walk after dinner with my husband. Now, this is enjoyable and our alone time, but it's also exercise as well. Another example is when I take the stairs when coming back to my condo. I live on the 7th floor,…

Chocolate Is The Best Way To Help You Develop Good Health

This may seem like a strange way of improving your personal well being, but it is true, chocolate will help you in more ways than one.  The following is a list of chocolates benefits to help you improve.

Chocolate prevents cavities. Most dentists would argue that point but because of a substance called theobromine, which has proven to be equal in effectiveness as fluoride, unsweetened chocolate helps to keep those nasty cavities away.



Chocolate has been proven to lower the risk of stroke. Due to the makeup of cocoa, it has ingredients that actually help to supply more blood flow around the areas of the brain.

Developing Yourself

Personal development comes in a wide variety of activities, but it has been my experience that you have to actively want to change yourself before anything can be done. From there, you are able to grow and learn from your experiences. This will aid in all aspects of your life, from the home to the work place.


The ability to look in on oneself and see where you fall short is a hard thing for most people to do. It took me years to figure out that I needed to change and even longer to actually make the change a set reality. Often times, the need for change comes from a dark part of your life, but you may be lucky enough to have insight or others helping you to know where you need to improve.


The path to personal development can be long and hard, but that isn't to say you won't have fun in the process. If you enjoy reading, there are thousands of books that can help you for whatever aspect of development you want and need. You may not realize it, but the books HR speaks about to …

Confidence Is Key

Let’s face it; if you want to succeed at anything, you need to have a certain level of confidence. This doesn’t mean that you need to boldly and fearlessly attack every aspect of life. There certainly may be areas where you lack confidence. You need to identify, however, the areas of life where you need to be confident in order to succeed.


The first thing you need to do is to identify where you need more confidence, and where you don’t. Let’s say, for example, that you are afraid of public speaking, and you need to get over that to succeed. In this case, you need to gain confidence in speaking in front of people. If you lack confidence in cooking a good meal, that certainly won’t matter to your speaking ability. You need to identify where you need to gain confidence, and where lack of confidence doesn’t matter. This doesn’t mean that you can’t gain confidence in other areas, though.


One of the dangers of a lack of confidence is that it can fuel failure. Failure then leads to decrease…

How My Personal Development Plan Overcame My Depressive Lifestyle

For more than the last decade, I have been in a strong, unyielding battle against my depression. My condition is a result of an odd kind of illness. At first, it showed no types of physical signs, and I felt no symptoms, other than being depressed. I had no stressful event that occurred in my life that served as a trigger. However, I was still depressed.

When I first started feeling my depressive thoughts, I avoided admitting I had any kind of real issue. I just figured that it was a part of the growing process, and that everyone experienced what I was feeling. Eventually I recognized that I was feeling a high level of stress and anxiety that others did not.

It did not take long before I started developing rashes on my body that were stress-related. While the doctors first began treating my skin condition, it became evident that there was an underlying problem – my depression.


It was only at this point that I recognized that I had some type of serious issue that needed to be dealt wi…

Best Personal Development Tips to Achieve Your Life's Goals

Personal development is important to achieve the goals of your life. All humans, at some stage in their lives, would feel that they need to improve some aspect of their lives. Even the most successful person on earth would have some area in his life that needs to be improved. Before improving anything in your life, first you need to accept that you are lacking in that particular aspect or quality in your life. This could be done through your own comprehension or else you could ask someone close to you. Do not be shamed of accepting that you are imperfect. Nobody is perfect in this world, for that matter.

If you don't ask for help, you would not get help. If your life is not working as you intended and you don't see any need to change anything. You may be resisting something about yourself. You may be not wanting to accept that you must change for the better. This may be because you are ashamed of seeing yourself as being imperfect. Until you accept your imperfection, you canno…

Being Kind To Yourself: A Short Guide - Personal development

A lot of people don't realize how important it is to be kind to yourself. They think it a silly, immature notion, but they don't realize that being kind to yourself is one of the best things you can do in your life.


Think about it, you are probably not that kind to yourself when you are in deep thought. At least once this week, you may have called yourself an idiot, fat, crazy or some other negative adjective. And the truth is this: when we are not comfortable with ourselves, no one else is going to be comfortable with us either. That is why it is absolutely imperative for you to make sure that you are being kind and gentle with yourself. Here are some tips to help you to do that.


First, monitor the thoughts you are thinking. Everyone is unkind to themselves sometimes, but you have to think seriously about how you talk to yourself on a regular basis. When is the last time you thought something nice about yourself? If you're like a lot of people, you simply cannot remember…

Aspects Of Personal Development

There are many aspects of our lives that help define who we are and how we feel. One of the largest areas of our lives is related to the work that we do or our profession. Therefore this aspect tends to form the most important part of our own personal development.

There are some simple questions that you need to ask yourself regarding the current job you do. Do you enjoy your work or do you just slog away to earn the money you need to survive? Does your work leave you with a sense of fulfillment or does it seem to suck the joy out of your life?


You may be surprised to know that a large percentage of people work just to earn money and take no pleasure in what they do. This in itself is not always a bad thing because money earned can be used to buy some enjoyment such as funding holidays, hobbies, etc.


On the other hand, people who work only for remuneration may not know what they are missing. True fulfillment can really only be achieved when all areas of your life are balanced and com…
