Being Mentally Strong

abyss-adult-brave-2932I loved this post from a friend so much I had to reblog it!

Site Title

Grit. Resilience. Mental toughness. We hear a lot about these attributes. Of course we have an abundance of strategies and techniques for developing psychological resilience.

When most people set out to become fit, they’re thinking about their physical fitness. Getting in better physical shape tops the list for many.

In this case, if more people focused on their mental fitness, however, they’d likely become more successful in achieving the goals they set for themselves – physical fitness or otherwise.

Building mental muscle is the key to self-discipline, delayed gratification, grit, and perseverance. These are the skills you will need to become the best mental version of yourself.

We all would like to be able to deal with life’s ups and downs with strength and grace, and learning to manage your emotions is another important part of becoming mentally strong.

Keep in mind, being mentally strong doesn’t mean you don’t experience…

All About Chia Seeds

20160306_134830

You all probably remember the famous “Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia”.  How many of us grew those chia plants back in the day and had no idea what it was?  Well, I have just become a user of these cool little seeds.  Top 8 reasons why to incorporate Chia Seeds into your daily diet:

  • One big reason is you get a lot for doing so little.  Chia seeds are packed with so many nutrients and very few calories.  They contain 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 5 grams of Omega-3s out of the 9 grams of fat, 18% of the recommended daily allowance of Calcium (RDA), 30% of the RDA of Manganese, 27% of the RDA of Phosphorus, a generous amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3/Niacin, Potassium, Vitamin B1/Thiamine and Vitamin B2.
    • In just 1 ounce, you get a power-packed 137 calories (this is just 2 tablespoons).  Since a lot of these calories…

BEYOND YOUR LIMITS 

Reblog of a fellow blogger’s poem that inspired me. Hope it helps to push you to your next level. So brighten someone’s day and share it as well!😄

INSPIRATIONAL POEMS

With every moment you breathe,
With every second you survive,
You compete with yourself,
For supreme best, you strive!

Don’t stop till you reach a point,
Where you’re fit to be called a great man,
Don’t be satisfied with what you have,
Push your limits, harder than you can!

Keep battling, keep proceeding,
Till flags of glory are unfurled,
Remember, your battle is with yourself,
Your battle is not with the world!

Don’t make the world your opponent,
You yourself be the one,
Get better with every mistake,
You make during this long run.

Battle till your last breathe,
Author the most glorious life story,
Remember the journey is tough,
Beyond your limits, lies your glory!

– Nikesh Lilani

Partners in Crime? HBP and SD!

A reposting if you missed the article by yours truly before. A reminder that over time something as little as not getting your sleep can be extremely detrimental. Share this with someone you love.

Is High Blood Pressure linked to Sleep Deprivation (SD)?

I thought about this as I awoke this morning, not feeling very rested and knowing I should have went to bed earlier.  Also, I thought of my family members in the US that I felt compelled to text after a troubling 4:00 a.m. nightmare.  They often are still up as I rise at 6 or 7 a.m., which tells me…… they are most likely not getting enough sleep either!

Could we be destroying our health from just lack of this one simple thing…..sleep?  Studies have shown that less than 6 hours per night of sleep could possibly have a correlation to increase blood pressure.  Sleep helps our blood to regulate our stress hormones and helps our nervous systems to stay healthy.

Over a period of time, not getting the proper amount of sleep could decrease our body’s ability to regulate stress…
