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 even Oprah. I get a dose of motivation while I walk.



Personal development is not limited to motivation, though. You need to expand your knowledge to help you fulfill your goals. I add audio books to my playlist that help me learn the skills to obtain my goals. This can include books on financial development, fitness, proper diet, memory improvement, or any other skill you need to learn.


I split my hour walk into two sections. The first 30 minutes I listen to motivational speakers to get my mind moving in overdrive. Then I switch into learning mode. The last 30 minutes of my walk is spent listening to teachers explaining ways I can improve my life using their techniques and systems. You cannot imagine the power of starting your day this way. You go from sleeping to physically alert and active in moments. You go from sluggish thoughts to excitement. You go from wondering how to solve problems to getting the advice you need to move forward. You do it all before you start your workday.


I have not forgotten about the reading time. I have an inexpensive exercise bike in my home. It is setup in the family room where everyone watches television. In the evening, I get on my exercise bike and pedal slowly while I read. This helps me wind down from the day and still get a little additional exercise. I am spending time with my family and reading inspirational words. I do not worry about the disruptions from the family or the television. I am reading to relax and absorb. The words flow into my subconscious where they provide the greatest benefit.


There is one last piece of advice I want to offer. Write down your goals and read them before you start your morning workout and after you finish reading your inspirational book at night. Plant those goals deeply in your mind while you continue your personal development quest. You will be surprised as you start seeing your goals moving closer day by day.

The Most Effective Weight Loss Program Involves Better Habits

Every member of the family probably recognizes the best way they can stay fit and remain slender, even if they require significant amount of weight loss. Typically, fit families are those that have established habits based on a healthy lifestyle. This is often challenging within a busy home, where both parents are off working throughout the day.


Managing a weight loss system in an active family requires dedication of consuming a balanced diet, and performing regular exercise. While it might appear to be much more convenient to simply stop by the fast food joint for dinner, than to prepare a healthy meal, in the long run it can cause significant issues and diminish the health of the family.

Hair Loss In Women

Hair Loss In Women



Every one of us loses hair every day.   We lose it during our shower, we lose it while we blow dry our hair or when we brush our hair and this loss is all normal.  Typically we lose an average of 50 to 100 hundred hairs per day and normally for each hair we lose, we grow a new one to replace it.  However, at times hair loss may be a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist for possible treatment.  Here are some possible causes of hair loss in women and how to deal with them.

Alopecia

This is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the hair follicles.  This disease affects 4.7 million people in the U.S. and occurs equally between women and men.  The cause is not known for sure, but may be triggered by illness or stress.  The condition can occur in three in three different forms including alopecia areata, alopecia universalis and alopecia totalis.
