Life Coaching Towards Extraordinary Health and Fitness – What Stops Most People

Studies have shown that out of all the areas of life, people from most nations of the World rate “Health” the most important area of life and “great health” as the most important thing to have in life. So why is it so difficult for most people to consistently take action towards creating that result for themselves?Limiting BeliefsOf course there are many reasons or factors that could stop a person from taking consistent action towards great health and fitness in his or her life. But the most critical element that this article will focus on is “beliefs”. The beliefs that people have what it takes to eat in a more healthy way, to create a lifestyle that supports greater health and the beliefs that people have about “working out” or exercising seems to be the main factor that stops most people from creating the level of health and fitness that they desire for themselves.Their beliefs are also what keeps people in the repetitive cycle of exercising and/or eating healthy food and then stopping or “slacking off” for a long time and then starting again and stopping, and on and on it goes. Beliefs about what it takes to eat healthier, exercise, etc are what prevents consistency.What kinds of beliefs you ask? Well, let’s take exercising consistently as an example. This is what will possibly run through the mind of a person who hasn’t yet integrated the discipline and focus that is needed to be consistent with exercise:
“I have got work to do and must finish that first.”
“It is going to take too much time to exercise and there is so much I have to do.”
“The traffic on the way to the gym is going to take too much time to get through.”
“It is ok, I can give this workout session a miss because I won’t lose much if I miss this session.”
“I do not have enough time today. It is going to take at least 3 hours to get ready, pack the bag, drive to the gym, workout, then shower and change, and drive back home.”
And the list goes on and on…..Examples of beliefs that people have that stop them from consistently eating healthier food are:
“I will be missing out on all the good food I love to eat.”
“It is too much trouble and/or takes too much time to prepare healthy food.”
“It is easier to just go out an eat.”
“Healthy food (like organic) food costs more.”
“My body will be fine. It knows how to take care of itself.”
And that list goes on and on….So, the question we must really stop and ask ourselves when these beliefs and thoughts come up is – “Is it really true??” Is it really true that it takes too much time or too much effort or that you have to miss out on all the other stuff you like to do or eat? I’m just going to hallucinate that you answered “No, it’s not true.”I guarantee you, if you would just take a little bit of time to do a little research of your own or even easier, get a coach who knows about these things, then you will find out that lots, if not all of the beliefs you have that are stopping you from being consistent with the behaviors that support your greater health and fitness, are ALL UNTRUE and not valid.There are numerous ways, tons of strategies that you can use in order to create an even more healthy and fit body and lifestyle. But the first and most important thing to realize (and is what is the key that you get from this whole article) is that, you must first become aware now and realize how your beliefs about what is possible and not, are the only things that are stopping you from creating the quality of health and fitness that you really desire. And the quickest way to get out of the B.S. or belief systems (pun intended) is to ask yourself the question, “Is what I believe about this REALLY true?” At the very least that will cause your brain to begin to question what it is believing and open up to other possibilities. Once it is open to other possibilities, it can then go find them and present them to you.Of course this whole article is NOT for you personally but maybe you know other people close to you that desire more health and fitness and need a few pointers in order to create the consistency that they need to create greater health and fitness for themselves. And if you are wondering how I am pretty accurate about what runs through people’s minds, well guess what – I’ve obviously has those thoughts before.Thanks for taking the time to read this…

How Much Should You Spend on Entertainment

Entertainment is an important part of our lives. There’s virtually no one in this world who does not want to laugh or have fun among friends and family. Quality entertainment helps enliven the spirits and makes feel fresh and alive. The best entertainment suspends reality for a while and takes to a new place and leave behind all worries and troubles.So how much should you spend from your pocket for entertainment at your party or reception? In today’s world whatever we do, budget plays an important factor. Keeping this in mind, we should also plan for our budget when it comes to entertainment for a party or wedding reception.Always remember that the key towards entertainment is to get the maximum of enjoyment without spending huge amounts of money. Of course it depends on the type of entertainment option that you are choosing for. Going for a high profile party or some event in a five-star hotel will always and automatically cost you more than arranging for a small party at a friend’s place. Based on the type of event, you need to plan for the budget. Normally with a few hundred to thousand dollars you can easily organize an event with good amount of entertainment.Spending for an entertainment or event also depends on the number of people coming to attend it. For example, if your party has around 100 people, it may cost you $500-1500 to organize your party’s entertainment. The amount will increase if the number of guests increases to 500. The type of venue that you choose is also a major factor to ascertain your costs. Organizing a small party at your own home or a friend’s place will cost much less than a big venue or banquet hall.As music is an integral part of entertainment, most events and parties include some type of music performances. If your event is going to be more than 4-5 hours or you have a theme to the entertainment, you may have to shed some extra money. However, it will may make your party more exciting and enjoyable and be worth of the money that you are paying.Always keep in mind that paying extravagantly does not always make a great party. You have to spend prudently yet effectively.
