Dare to be Wild Challenge – learn more

It’s that time again!  Join millions of people all around the world by making a New Year’s resolution.  What’s it going to be this year?  Experts state that the majority of people will not keep their resolution and will fail to reach their desired result.  The most common reasons why resolutions are broke include:  the resolution is not realistic, the resolution is not specific and measurable, or the individual doesn’t have any accountability or motivation to work towards the goal.  So, make sure that you make a resolution that is reasonable, you can track your progress, and you can surround yourself with people who will support your effort and push you to stay focused on your goal.

The top New Year’s resolutions focus on health and wellness.  Is your resolution to stay fit and get healthy, or is your resolution to lose weight for New Year 2017?  Millions of people will try and they will join the local gym, and they will exercise, and they will go on a diet.  And, by mid-January or at the end of the month of January, it’s likely that 80% or more will have given up on their resolution.

Here’s a suggestion, this year try something new.  Don’t keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect a different result.  You know what that is…  Insanity.  So, go ahead and change your plan.  I’ve got an idea for you.  Why not try a challenge this year?  You’ve seen the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise funds for ALS.  The Ice Bucket Challenge really motivated people into action and it raised a lot of money.  Well, there’s another challenge that you can consider joining and it could really change your life.  It’s called the Dare to be Wild Challenge.  Click on this link to get more details and find out how you can take the dare and join the challenge.

This year don’t make a resolution, instead join the Dare to be Wild Challenge.

  • The challenge will help motivate you to change your lifestyle, eating habits, encourage you to be more active, and lead you to a healthier lifestyle.

  • Improve your health and well-being.

  • Feel better, look better, and be better.

  • Change your life!

 Thanks for reading.  Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Stress Management Tips

Stress is a killer, literally.  We experience stress every day and it has a huge impact on our health, well-being, and quality of life.  Heart disease, cancer, and chronic respiratory diseases are the three top causes of death, but I would argue that stress could be #1 because it beats us down, weakens our immune system, and it causes disruption to physiological, psychological, and cognitive functioning.

Usually, a person will respond with the fight or flight response to stress.  So, we take on the stress and deal with it, or we simply run away from stress.  Sometimes, a person may not even be aware that stress is affecting their behavior or health.  Stress can be a hidden force, or it can be very apparent to the individual.

Sometimes it is difficult to know what is stress.  So, something might occur or possibly nothing occurs, but the individual perceives a problem and then he or she must figure out how to deal with it, or possibly they might not want to deal with the stress at all.  There may be some signs that a person is under stress or you may not notice any external things showing an aroused state due to the stress.  Sound confusing to you?  Stress is not easy to define and it can affect people in different ways, but we do know that stress can have a devastating impact on our life.

Think about all of the ways stress can influence your life.  You can be stressed in a number of different ways.  Here’s a short list of some of the top stressors in our lives and examples of the stress:

  • Work stress:  A fireman going into a building on fire.
  • Family stress:  Dealing with aging parents or your children, or your siblings.  Or, a new baby is born to young parents.
  • School stress:  Taking final exams or the SAT.
  • Marital stress:  Relationship with your spouse is always changing and stressful.
  • Financial stress:  Trying to pay bills that are overdue or you lose your job.
  • Environmental stress:  Winter arrives, it gets colder and daylight hours are much less.
  • Holiday stress:  From Black Friday to Christmas and then New Years – lots of stress!
  • Political stress:  Presidential elections and fallout from Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
  • Food stress:  Allergies, toxic foods, chemicals, additives, junk food, and obesity.

Stress is a constant and we will be bombarded by stress every day in many different ways.  You just can’t get away from stress, unless you live on the planet Mars.  Look, you first have to accept that stress is a fact of life and it’s all around us.  Next, you have to look and listen for the signs that stress may be causing problems in your life and identify what is causing the stress.

When you have awareness of the stress in your life, the next step is to figure out a way to reduce the stress, or a plan to manage stress when it occurs.  So, we’re now talking about stress management, the plan that you will use to allow your body, your mind, and your spirit to work through and get rid of the toxic by-products created by the stress.  Yes, stress can be very toxic and cause extreme damage to your physical and mental health.

When stress happens, and it will just like shit happens, you must be ready with your stress management plan.  First, don’t think you can just ignore the stress and it will go away.  Deal with your stress and manage the stress, and reduce the stress in your life by taking action.  Here are some stress management tips and stress reduction guide for you to use when you encounter stress:

  • Moderate exercise can help to manage your stress and releases endorphins to help you feel better. Plus, you’ll strengthen your muscles and your heart with physical activity like walking, biking, swimming, tennis, yoga, weight training, recreation, or sports.
  • Yoga is one of the best stress activities because it enables you to breathe, slow down, stretch, and become more focused on your physical needs.
  • Meditation, Deep breathing, Relaxation strategy, Imagery:  A combination of mind and body to help you focus, be calm, clear your mind, rejuvenate, and to focus on very positive things that make you feel good.
  • Do things or activities that make you feel happy and healthy.  It can be a physical activity, a hobby, reading, listening to music, creating art, taking a vacation, or anything that will lift your spirits.
  • Get more rest and slow down.  We live in a world that moves very fast and it seems to always be on the go.  So, take time to allow your body to get rest, go to bed early, take a nap, and make sure that you don’t sabotage your health by bringing on more stress due to sleep deprivation.
  • Drink more water.  Water is great for your health and it will help to flush away the bad stuff out of your body.  Eight cups of water each day is a good plan.
  • Eat better by reducing the processed foods and replace with natural whole foods that are packed with the nutrients that you need to be strong.  Good food consumption will help you feel better and be prepared to deal with stress.
  • Talk it out and communicate with your family, friends, and the people who care about you.  Share your concerns and allow others to help you deal with the stress that is disrupting your life.
  • Be ready to change your habits, your thinking, and be open to doing things a new and different way.  You know that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  Change it up!  Make some adjustments or just try something new.

Okay, I hope that you can use some of these stress management tips to deal with things that are happening in your life in a better and healthier way.  You have a choice and you can decide to manage the stress with some of the ideas presented in today’s blog post.

Peak Performance by increasing your Physical and Mental Energy

I think it is safe to say that most people want to win, to be first, to be the top, or to be the best.  How do we prepare to reach the goal of winning, coming in first place, or simply to know that we have achieved the highest level?

Performance is a word that can relate to almost any activity, task, test, event, sports, work, game, or just about any thing that we do.  We want to perform, look good, show our best, reach our potential, highlight our strengths, and be at the top of our game for the performance.

Put it together and you get Peak Performance.  What is peak performance?  The definition that I found surfing the Internet states that “Peak performance is a state that is also known as peak experience, the zone of optimal functioning and flow. It refers to a moment when an individual puts it all together, when they are in the zone, when everything flows, and when they achieve an exceptional performance.”  Achieving peak performance requires physical, mental, and emotional energy to be at optimal levels.  It also means that the individual is maximizing their ability, the peak performer is extremely confident and may seem to effortlessly be performing at the highest level, and he or she is locked in with total concentration and focus on their performance.

Some examples of peak performance in recent history, the Chicago Cubs baseball team winning the World Series, Michael Phelps 28 medals in the Olympics, and Donald Trump finding a way to win the 2016 Presidential election against all odds.  There are many examples of individuals, teams, companies, and organizations that could be categorized as peak performance.  One of the most famous athletes who frequently performed “in the zone” was Michael Jordan.  He always seemed to have the best games in the biggest championship games under the most pressure.

OK, so what about the regular ordinary Joe, Jack or Jill and how would they benefit from peak performance?  Clearly, performance is usually judged and the result often can lead to positive rewards, benefits, income, well-being, notoriety, self esteem, or some other value or desired outcome.  If you perform well, you reap the rewards that come due to your performance.

How do we prepare ourselves for peak performance?  The keys to peak performance are preparation, having the desire or motivation, and possessing the information required to perform at the highest level. I believe that some of the most important factors for peak performance are physical conditioning, nutrition, rest, and mental fortitude.  Therefore, you must be ready to work for it by getting regular exercise, physical activity, eating a diet full of foods that provide the fuel to power you, getting enough sleep, and getting your mind to be completely focused on your path to achieving peak performance.

I think that all of these factors:  physical fitness, nutritional habits, sleep patterns, and the power of your mind are essential to getting “in the zone” and peak performance.

Today, I want to provide information and make a suggestion to help with nutrition and mental focus.  Many people struggle with their diet and probably don’t include all of the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals in the foods that they eat.  Foods are fuel that power our body, mind, and emotions.  Bad foods, junk food, and fast food doesn’t usually offer much in the way of good stuff for a person to be able to perform at their best.  Most people due to circumstances are unable to eat the right things, therefore, they are not prepared and able to perform they way that want.  So, to overcome this obstacle, we must consider a food supplement that can deliver all of the powerful nutrition along with ingredients that help our mind, mental clarity, focus, and emotional well-being.

I have found New Earth Edge as my new best food to achieve maximum performance.  What is New Earth Edge and what can it do for you?  Active lifestyles demand highly nutritious foods to rebuild, recover, nourish, and protect our muscles, ligaments, heart, lungs, and every cell in our bodies. Being active is also about being proactive and nourishing your body with the very best nature has to offer—whole, all-natural superfoods from Earth’s most powerful natural botanicals.  DON’T SETTLE FOR SYNTHETIC VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS—GET YOUR ATHLETIC EDGE WITH WHOLE SUPERFOODS from New Earth.

Here’s a list of New Earth Edge products for Peak Performance:

Edge is a 30-day supply of daily workout supplements that come from powerful superfoods  designed to provide maximum energy, mental clarity, joint health, and maximum recovery from the stress of workouts.*  Each daily packets contains Drive, Focus, Flex, and Rebound.

Drive is an energy provider that is taken prior to your workout and is made from the most powerful superfoods.

Focus promotes optimal concentration and clarity so that you can accomplish mental and physical tasks with efficiency.  Focus is used before each workout to improve performance.*

Flex supports your joints and cartilage and strengthens your body to absorb the stress and force of daily activities and workout.*  Flex is taken after each workout.

Rebound is a post workout supplement that helps the recovery process and provides needed nourishment to help fuel and speed recovery  and diminish soreness felt from exercise or athletic competition.*

Build is a workout supplement and powerful protein drink made from natural and pure whey protein.  Each serving of the Build protein drink supplement yields 22 grams of quality protein to maximize muscle growth and strength.*

Prepare yourself for Peak Performance by using the right food supplements that will help provide the powerful nutrients that you need for maximum results by your body, mind, and spirit.  Food might be the very most important factor that will determine if your performance is at the highest level.  Don’t cheat yourself by only using low grade foods and supplements.  New Earth can help position you to be the person you want to be.

Clean Eating, Natural Superfoods, and Wild Food Products for your Health

Welcome to the New Earth Challenge, “Dare to be Wild“.  Have you considered a clean eating diet or tried to eat clean over an extended period of time?  First, what is clean eating?  Eating clean foods for your meals and snacks means that you eat whole food, wild foods, fresh, pure, natural, organic foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean protein.  A clean food diet will eliminate the junk foods, processed foods, and the bad foods that contain synthetic additives.  In addition, when you eat clean, you’ll limit consumption of foods that are high in sugar or salt.

Eating clean will help you get a good dose of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that will help you to be healthier and stronger.  In addition, cutting out the bad junk foods will likely also reduce the amount of calories that you consume on a daily basis.  So, the outcome might be some weight loss and you will probably experience health benefits by eating natural superfoods and wild food products.  They are simply good for you and will help you feel good.

In contrast, bad foods, desserts with lots of sugar, fast foods, and processed foods are usually loaded with calories, fat, and don’t offer the nutritional value that you get from clean foods that are pure and loaded with nutrients.  Bad foods or fast food may temporarily make you feel good, but the long-lasting effect over a period of time is unhealthy and not good for your health.

Changing your diet, adjusting your lifestyle, and moving to a clean eating menu will require effort, persistence, and a focus on your goals which might be losing weight, getting in shape, eating better, and in general, improving your overall health.

The New Earth Dare to be Wild 90 Day Challenge is a new food challenge that can help guide and motivate you to achieve your health and fitness goals.  You can go to the Dare to be Wild information page to learn more about this challenge, and how you can get started.  Believe me, you’ll be glad that you accept the Dare to be Wild challenge and take the Dare to be Wild pledge.  The New Earth challenge will help you to eat clean healthy foods, drink more water, and get more physical activity.  At the end of the 90 day challenge, you’ll feel like a whole new person!  So, check it out and invite others to join you – click here to get started now.
