The Nature of Self-Talk We all have an inner dialogue, or ongoing inner conversation and commentary that describes our experiences.  You could think of it as an inner TV commentator making comments on our daily life. The content of our self-talk can be positive or negative – like an inner-critic, or an inner-cheerleader. Your inner-cheerleader…

For many people who are not in the habit of regular exercise, the idea of getting out of breath and sweaty is not one they think of as fun, but that is just a matter of perspective. Once you get those good endorphin chemicals being released into your bloodstream from exercise you can quickly get…

The first thing to say about fats is there are many different kinds, unhealthy and healthy. Fats have almost double the amount of potential energy than carbs but it takes longer for your body to convert fat into ATP. This is because before fat can be converted into glucose it must first be broken down…

An interesting point about metabolism is that have you, like me, noticed that some people who are skinny can get away with eating almost anything and don’t seem to gain a pound? At the same time, there are others who watch their calorie intake closely and still seem to gain weight. This is a matter…

My personal experience with getting superfoods into my daily diet has been the single most powerful change in my life. This is something I have only discovered by doing it, and the same applies to you. No amount of theory or explanation will convince you of this – you simply have to start getting superfoods…

A key part of my ongoing experiment with diet to create good health and have loads of energy has been to simplify my diet. To understand the importance of this, we will need to take a very brief history lesson in human nutrition. When it comes to food and diet, our modern lifestyle is very…

During my life I have had an ongoing experiment with diet to create good health and have loads of energy. Some of my experiments included: eating a heavy meat diet, eating a mostly vegetarian diet, juicing, and the discovery of what can be called ‘super foods.’ The discovery of super foods was a huge key…

A poor diet that results in lower energy levels will lower your motivation levels. To compensate, you will be tempted to consume more sugar, coffee, and whatever other drugs of choice you are using to get your energy levels up. I know this for certain in my own life. Before I educated myself as to…

Having high levels of motivation and energy is closely related to our levels of self-confidence. Self-confidence is shaped mostly by our self-image. Most people have some element of their self-image that makes them unhappy. A big part of this is because when we compare our self-image to picture perfect images in our digital media we…

Whether we have a basic positive or negative attitude, we will find ourselves in relationships where conflict and the potential for anger and frustration are present. Challenging relationship situations always present the possibility of a negative-chain-reaction occurring. What do you do in this scenario?

Relationships are profoundly affected by the attitude and self-confidence we bring to them. The reason this is so, is because our self-confidence, and our negative or positive thinking will affect how we respond during relationship interactions. In a similar way to negative thought spirals that we looked at in earlier articles, negative relationship interactions based…

The part of our brain that holds our conditioned responses to stressful events is our neuro-network which is like a circuit board on a computer, except it is made up of nerve cells connected together to form a ‘circuit board’ in our brain. Our brain has millions of these circuits that control many of our…

As stress is a constant factor of modern life, when we don’t have a good stress management plan, life stress can quickly bring on a bad mood, health problems, and low motivation levels. You may think you are not a generally stressful person, and even if this is so, you will still experience life stress…

Discovering your passion in life comes first through some kind of experience, and as such a person’s life purpose and passion can come from many sources: places, events, people, and feelings.   While the source of a life purpose and passion may vary, there is usually one thing that defines a passion: the desire to…
