15 Motivating Quotes For A Healthy Lifestyle

Don’t you want to live as long and happy as you can? Have less medical bills. Wake up with more energy throughout the day. Don’t worry about high cholesterol and blood pressure. These are all things that you can attain while living a healthy lifestyle. No one said it was easy. You have to be mentally strong and have will power made of steal. That’s why I decided to give you 15 motivating quotes for a healthy lifestyle.

1. The best feeling is when you know that no one thinks you can do something. Then you prove them all wrong.

Do It Because They Said You Couldn't

2. Nothing worth having is ever easy to come by. The same goes for a healthy life. There may be some hard decisions and a lot of discipline, but when you get what you earn you will appreciate it so much more.

Earn Your Body

3. Some people may think you’re crazy for giving up certain foods. Some people may think you’re even crazier if you workout two or three times in a day. Soon enough they will be asking you how you managed to do it.

First They Ask Why, Then How

4. Worry about the big picture. That means a life long habit of training your body and eating well on a regular basis. Your body will take care of the rest.

Forget About Getting Skinny. Eat Well And Exercise

5. Don’t give up just because you think you’re trying and you don’t see the results that you want. You can push yourself to limits that you never thought possible, only if you really want something.

Work Harder

6. Everyone has will power, including you. If you make a decision to change something in your life then mean it. Go as furiously as you can towards that decision. Don’t waver. That will give a chance for doubt to seep in.

It's Not About Will Power. It's About Change

7. When you hit obstacles in the road, more often then not you can’t control it. What you can control is how you respond to that obstacle that made you fall. It’s your decision how confidently you get back up and back on track. Only worry about what you can control.

It's Not How Far You Fall. It's About How Long It Takes To Get On Your Feet

8. It’s not about how fast you’re moving. As long as you’re moving towards your goals, you are making yourself better. That’s all that matters. Being healthy and strong is a lifelong journey, so you don’t have to rush.

Keep Moving Foreward

9. Look back at #6. It’s all about your mindset. If you make a decision and stick by it, everything else will take care of itself.

Losing Weight Is A Mind Game

10. Whatever your best is, give that effort in everything that you do. If you try your hardest then in the end there will be no regrets. You will be ultimately happy with the result.

Run Faster. Eat Better

11. You only get one body and one life on this earth. Respect yourself and love yourself enough to take the best care of yourself.

Take Care Of Your Body

12. You are the only one who can change you. You are the only one who can make decisions for yourself. You are in full control so there is no excuses. Chase after the body, mind, and health that you want.

You Are The Creator Of Your Own Destiny

13. Nothing will happen if you stand by idly, or just wish for it. A healthy lifestyle requires work, and no one is going to do it for you. Climb your own ladder to success.

You Can't Climb The Ladder Of Success With Your Hands In Your Pockets

14. To reach a goal, first you have to figure out what you want. Picture yourself as the person you want to be and then go after it. Constantly have a clear picture in your mind. Think about it all the time until you reach it. Then guess what? Set another goal to make yourself even better.

You Must Begin To Think Of Yourself As Becoming Ther Person You Want To Be

15. You are mentally and physically stronger than you ever thought possible, but you won’t ever figure that out until you put yourself in that situation. Pursue situations that challenge your mind and body.

You Will Never Know Your Limits Unless You Push Yourself To Them

If you haven’t already started making changes in your lifestyle to be more health conscious, I hope this motivated you to do so. Your body is counting on you. Just simple changes in your lifestyle can save you tons of money on doctor visits and medication. It’s definitely worth the effort. The beginning can be the hardest part. But NEVER quit!

Read This Before You Give Up On Your Meditation Practice

There’s a lot of information out there about meditation, and it can get very overwhelming and confusing, to say the least. Along the way, a lot of mistakes happen, even if you’re an advanced meditator. If you ask me, knowing which mistakes are the most common can take your practice to the next level and stop you from giving up on your practice.

Here are the five most common mistakes people make while meditating:

1. Not truly understanding what meditation is.

You know it’s good for you, you understand that it raises your vibration and can help you to achieve a higher consciousness level. But there’s more to it than that. When you’re meditating, you are achieving spiritual awareness on a conscious level.

This means you are aware of your spiritual body and your physical body at the same time while you’re conscious (and by that I mean not sleeping). It’s very important to understand this because you’re accessing your spiritual tools when you’re in a meditative state. You quiet the mind when you achieve a relaxed state. This allows you to become more aware of your spiritual body.

While in a meditative state, you can access both bodies and the information they hold at the same time. When you consciously become aware of your spiritual and physical body at the same time, you have a lot more access to the spiritual tools you were born with. And these tools can be very helpful in everyday life.

2. Not knowing what it means to “achieve” a meditative state.

A common misconception is someone thinking that in order to achieve a meditative state you need to be in a quiet room, sitting in a certain position, controlling your breathing. Here’s the thing: Most people are meditating every day without even knowing they’re doing it.

A meditative state can happen when you’re staring at the TV, when you’re staring into space, when you’re daydreaming or relaxing in a chair, and even right before you fall asleep. When your body is relaxing and your mind is quiet, you naturally achieve a meditative state.

But this can actually create a problem. You don’t realize that when you’re relaxing, falling asleep, or driving home from work—that’s when you’re most likely to stress out about your day. What is happening then is that most people naturally achieve a meditative state on their own. They are usually going over all of their problems, so it’s a Catch-22. And when you get into a meditative state, it’s the most powerful time to visualize.

3. Not understanding what being in a meditative state feels like.

You can feel dizzy. You can feel vibrating inside your body or even like you’re vibrating outside your body. You can feel like your arms are shaking or your legs or your body. You can feel like you’re being pulled upward.

You can also feel as if your energy spills into the entire room, as if your spiritual body protrudes from you, almost like you can touch the walls with your body. There are a lot of different variables on how meditation might feel to you. It’s not cut and dried. Some people think you’re supposed to feel a certain way or you didn’t achieve a meditative state. That’s simply not true. If you release all expectations, then you’re going to take a nap or go to sleep. Then you allow yourself to approach the edge of falling asleep, and your body will naturally go limp and relax. And your whole body will relax. It’s more natural.

4. Thinking there are strict rules for how meditation has to happen.

You must be sitting up. You must meditate at a certain time of day, each day, and be consistent. You must be sitting in a chair. You can’t eat red meat. You can’t fall asleep!

Actually, none of that matters. It’s interesting how many rules people want to meditate by, but you’re naturally a spiritual being. You access the spiritual part of yourself every single day. It’s not something you have to work to achieve, it just is. What you should work toward is being aware that it’s happening.

It’s happening whether or not you’ve ever consciously meditated a day in your life. It’s happening, and you are spiritually achieving.

5. Thinking one type of meditation is better than another.

Meditation is being spiritually aware on a conscious level, so it doesn’t matter how you achieve that awareness. If it’s guided meditation, then do guided meditation. If you don’t like guided meditation and you find your mind wandering, maybe try being more aware of your meditative state before you fall asleep.

Everyone meditates for different reasons. Everyone has a different agenda. Someone might want to have a deeper spiritual connection, someone else might want to connect with spirits, while others want to learn how to relax and lower their blood pressure.

There are no rules when it comes to achieving a meditative state. The key is awareness. Be more aware of when you achieve this state, more aware of how often throughout the day you achieve this state, and become more conscious of what you are doing and what you are thinking about while in a meditative state. Then utilize this time to the best of your ability.

Good luck!

Imagine Yourself Happy

Flashbacks of traumatic scenes—such as a bombing or death of a loved one—are one of the hallmarks for those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Mentally healthy people are also affected emotionally by images that we encounter in our day-to-day lives. For example, you might replay an embarrassing moment at work, and feel increased anxiety about your job, or envision a relaxing Sunday spent at the beach, and feel more relaxed. A new study looked at how guided imagery could be used to tweak the images, leading to greater happiness.

Guided imagery is a technique that been used by psychotherapists and other trained practitioners to treat a range of issues, such as insomnia, chronic pain, post traumatic stress disorder and grief. The close relationship between the human imagery system and our emotions can cause deep emotional perturbations. Velikova and her team wanted to see if people could learn to use guided imagery on themselves, similar to a meditation practice.

Thirty healthy volunteers underwent a two-day workshop to learn guided imagery techniques, such as imagery transformation; how to use positive imagery for future events and goals; and how to enhance mental balance. The group then used these techniques at home for 12 weeks, for 15 to 20 minutes a day.

Via EEG measurements of the brains of the participants, the researchers were able to compared the brain activity as “before and afters.” The results? The EEG data showed changed in the region of the brain known to be involved in imaging pleasant emotions and contributing to life satisfaction. There was also increased connectivity between areas of the brain linked to image processing between the two hemispheres. In psychological tests, the subjects’ depressive symptoms were reduced, and volunteers reported feeling overall more satisfied with life and more efficient.  

Velikova and her team think that this self-guided imagery has great potential to boost everyday well being, and as a tool to treat mild depression. The team noted it could also be used by businesses to boost morale and productivity.

14 Things We Need To Stop Doing If We Want To Live A Better Life

Resolutions for self-improvement are great (if you’re the type of person who is so self-disciplined that you can actually stay true to your goals for longer than one week). As imperfect humans, we are more prone to listen when we are told, “No, don’t. STOP.” The negative seems to always be more powerful.


Here are 14 things we should all stop doing:

1. Stop spending more on material goods than on experiences. Sure, it’s great to feel pretty, handsome and sexy. A single compliment on your looks can make your whole day. However, you are not truly deprived of anything material-wise. Save up for moments you will remember for the rest of your life, exhilarating moments that make your heart pound and take your breath away. When you want something enough, you’ll figure out how to prioritize and afford it.

2. Stop making up stories to make your life seem more interesting than it actually is. There is nothing glorious about superficiality and there is nothing wrong with the mundane. Just tell the truth — to others and to yourself. Otherwise, you’ll fall for the false impression of yourself and you’ll believe you’re more worthy of complacency than you actually are. Then, you too will lose track of what’s real and what’s not.

3. Stop being afraid to say “YES” to more things. Sitting around at home, on the Internet is comfortable and familiar, but there are so many more opportunities if you just show up. Attend more meetings, sign onto new projects, go out for the sake of it, explore a new place by yourself and don’t be afraid to speak up. Feeling passionate and creative is so much better than feeling lethargic.

4. Stop beating yourself up for not having the time to work out. Also, stop making excuses when you have plenty of time to get some exercise. If you feel like a blob on a couch, your brain probably looks like a blob on the couch, too.

5. Stop hating yourself for eating dessert. But also, stop eating dessert just because you hate yourself. Chocolate may seem like an instant remedy for all of your insecurities, but there are other, more productive ways to deal with stress and emotions.

6. Stop scrolling through Twitter when you’re at dinner with friends. Stop refreshing your news feed when you’re at a party. Stop checking your notifications every time you go out. You will always be able to catch up on social media, but you only have so long with the people you care about.

7. Stop giving your time to frenemies and surrounding yourself with people who won’t reciprocate feelings of love. Stop allowing people who think negatively of you to consume your energy; they don’t deserve it. For starters, find friends you can get to know on a sober level (there’s a thought!). Make friends with people who are interesting and interested in you, too.

8. Stop being so judgmental. Consciously stop basing first impressions on physical attractiveness. People are so much more than just a Facebook photo or a profile view from afar. They might surprise you about how beautiful they really are.

9. Stop revolving your every action on what people may think. Let’s not throw it back to high school. If you think somebody is interesting or attractive, introduce yourself and tell him or her about it. If you want to join a new friend group, club or project, don’t worry about the initial newbie awkwardness. Don’t refute your beliefs or deny your values because others disagree with them. Don’t look disinterested or indifferent because you think it makes you seem cooler; it doesn’t. It only makes you seem dispassionate, emotionless and boring.

10. Stop complaining about being constantly busy. No one cares and no one will pity you except for yourself. The pity party can only last so long before it runs dry. The next time you’re idly procrastinating, remind yourself that you are not so busy after all.

11. Stop over analyzing everything. Some people will love you and then will suddenly walk away without telling you what you did wrong. Others may be fickle or flaky in trying to figure out exactly what they want, but you do the same thing. Why does every hookup need to be regretted? Why does every text, like or favorite need to have an alternate meaning? Just relax. Just let ambiguity… exist.

12. Stop erasing and regretting. Write down ideas while they are still fresh; take way too many unnecessary photos. You’re in your 20s — live more while you can still call yourself young. You have time to regret everything later. Or, simply don’t regret.

13. Stop being afraid to pursue the dream, no matter how cliché it may sound. You dream of writing books, creating films, becoming a CEO or this country’s president. Why not let the desire to make your dreams come true overpower your fears for reaching them?

14. Stop beating yourself up for not being your 100 percent best all of the time. Self-improvement is a gradual process. Self-discipline is important, but we all screw up. We all cut corners and need vacations. Give yourself some leeway and then, get back on track.
