Sometimes we all need some reminders to keep us on track and keep us motivated. This applies to all areas of your life from your day to day activities, health as well as food & diet. It is important to make it a habit to continue to grow and continue to improve.

Here are some quick tips…

Day to day business

Quit Multitasking

Once hailed an attribute, several studies have shown why it’s a bad idea to attempt mult-tasking. Not only does it eventually affect your memory, it will eventually prove counter-productive, leaving with numerous loose ends. It’s better to focus finishing one thing at a time.

Health

Go For A Brisk Walk

Studies show that a daily brisk walk can significantly improve your health by helping you maintain a healthy weight, strengthen your skeletal and muscular system, and enhance coordination and balance.

Food & Diet

Eat a Better Breakfast

Scientific studies have confirmed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make it count. Have a healthy breakfast with servings of protein, fruits and vegetables. This will help you get the nutrients needed to start the day effectively.

Inspiration

Reward Yourself

Always treat yourself, whether for a job well done, or for achieving a goal etc. The psychology behind rewarding yourself is that you will demand more from yourself and be more disciplined in going after what you want, simply because you enjoy being rewarded.

Have An Amazing Day!   . .   .

5 2220

Yes, today April 22nd is Earth Day!  Before I embraced Internet Entrepreneurship I was a professional ‘tree hugger!’ Really it’s true! I’ll post my complete bio here one day but I have my undergrad in Earth Sciences and in Environmental Studies and my Masters of Science in Environmental Health from Tulane University and I’m finishing up my PH.D. from the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan.

Anyway, today i am dedicating my Earth Day to a place i love dearly – Zimbali Retreats www.zimbalijamaica.com This place gets my dedication today as it’s a retreat that’s completely off grid.  That means that their electricity is solar powered, their hot water is heated by a solar hot water heater, their water is harvested and filtered rainwater, their drinking water is from a local spring…..amazing!

Most of their food is grown right at the retreat on their organic farm and is often cooked outside on a wood burning fire.

It’s an amazing place and getting back to nature has helped me to clear out negativity, balance my inner self, and focus on some inner healing.

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to address the balance in my own life.

I cannot speak highly enough about this place, the staff and the owners Mark & Alecia.

Now the only problem I had when I went to the retreat for the first time, was that I couldn’t turn off my marketing head… so of course I made the owners shoot some videos that i could upload to their channel!

So watch their new welcome video:

What did you think of the video?

So, if you are suffering from “nature-deficit disorder” – which so many of us computer geeks are, make plans today to find a place like Zimbali Retreats where you can get back to nature!

So tell me, what are you going to do to get back to nature?
