Happy New Year! Let’s talk about your mindset, creating community, what’s bad for your heart, core stability helps prevent injuries, fasting diets and living smarter.
THOUGHTS FOR THE MONTH
“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each year find you a better man (or woman).” Benjamin Franklin
“Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Marie Curie
“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” E.M. Forster
“We have to change ourselves before we can change our circumstance”
By David Meltzer
I wish people would stop focusing on rearranging their furniture and start rearranging their thoughts and mindset. Nothing changes unless you do.
So when things go right or go wrong, look between your ears, look self-reflectively, and listen when you continually hear the same response from others, see the same things, feel the same way, or think the same thoughts.
In order to break through and become the person you want to become, you have to weather the layers of uncertainty and get through the turbulence of life. Bet on yourself and the abundance of the universe with confidence knowing that when all is said and done everything will be worth the effort and trials.
Everything will come in the right way at the perfect time…just don’t quit.
The only metric of success that really matters is the one we ignore:
The activity that’s bad for your heart
Author: Bryan Hubbard
When it comes to maintaining a healthy heart, all exercise isn’t equal. Lifting heavy loads at work seems to be bad for your arteries and heart, while intense sporting activity has a positive effect, at least according to new research.
It all seems to do with the way different types of activity affect your heart rhythm. An abnormal rhythm suggests a problem with the walls of our arteries and this, in turn, can lead to cardiovascular disease.
It’s a new way of looking at heart disease, say scientists at Inserm in France, who wanted to assess how different activities affect heart rhythms. Although we’ve been told that all forms of exercise are good for the heart, the Inserm research team wasn’t so sure, and tracked the heart health and activity of 10,000 volunteers for 10 years to find out.
The participants completed regular questionnaires where they logged their activity in sport, in their leisure time, such as gardening, and at work, and the health of their arteries was also checked.
Although general movement at work is good for the heart, lifting heavy loads isn’t, they discovered. Intense sporting activity is the best for maintaining a healthy heart.
