How To Have A Good Day Everyday

How To Have A Good Day Everyday

I am going to cover some strategies that you can easily implement and show you How To Have A Good Day Everyday.

Our subconscious filters what we take in. Our brain picks up whatever is top of mind. You spill your coffee and you’re focused on being clumsy then it is possible you will dwell on this for longer than usual. Or If you are about to see someone you find annoying you are more likely to miss anything positive or kind they are saying.

You may have heard of the term selective awareness. If you have ever bought a car in the past you may have started noticing that model of car everywhere on the road. Or may have come out of a movie with your partner and you are discussing it afterwards and you realise you both have a totally different take on the movie.

A tip is to pick a time of day when you are able to have a think you do not need long. 10 seconds or so to think “o.k. what really matters? The Neurochemistry of reward rather than failure.

There is various research on priming thoughts and how they are connected to happiness. These can be referred to as stepping stones. Think of a time when you have worn say a suit & you have knocked it out of the park. When you have put that suit on again you feel ready to take on more.

Implementation intentions make a difference to us getting things done. Instead of saying “Oh I have to exercise today…sigh” say instead “after work is when I will put on my gym clothes on.” Science has shown a 300% increase in the chances of completing these tasks when you state when you will be implementing that action.

Science has shown we can only hold three or four things in our conscious rather than the 7 previously believed. Keep this in mind when stressing over any tasks at the one time.

Prisoners are less likely to get parole if the judge has not had a break & the judge feeling overloaded.

People need to learn to say “No”more often. The trick is to start with the thing we are saying yes to. An example would be “I’m really excited by all the work I have putting into my book and it’s great to talk to you today. Due to being so busy with my book I will not be able to say yes. It has been so great seeing you and hearing what you have been up to!” So start with warmth, say “no” and end with warmth. Rather than saying “no” and then explaining yourself. When doing the latter people go into a defensive mode- fight, flight or freeze. In this mode it is hard for them to hear any of your explanation as to why you are giving them a no.
Another important tip is to not assume someone is a bad person if they are having a bad day. “Assume good person, bad circumstances” and practice empathy.
If you’re having a bad day practice generosity. This is a win win! It makes you feel good & the other person feel good and you will feel more connected to humanity. These tips were from a book I read by Caroline Webb you can get more information from her latest book How To Have A Good Day Everyday.

Benefits Of Hanging Upside Down

Benefits Of Hanging Upside Down, Or More Appropriately Inversion Benefits
Don’t just cover up symptoms; target the source of your ache!

RELIEVE BACK PAIN
Relaxes muscles, rehydrates discs, realigns & reduces pressure
EASE STRESS
Releases tension in shoulders, neck & back
IMPROVE JOINT HEALTH
Decompresses, strengthens & enhances shock absorption
INCREASE FLEXIBILITY
Improves functional fitness for an active, healthy lifestyle
IMPROVE FITNESS AND BUILD CORE STRENGTH
Inverted exercises help build a strong core, which is essential to back health
RELIEVE BACK PAIN 

Unlike surgery, mechanical traction, and other invasive forms of treatment, using an Inversion Table is a gentle, passive way to target pain at the source and care for all weight-bearing joints. This progressive form of traction allows each joint to be decompressed by the same weight that compresses it while upright. To put it simply, inverted decompression creates an ideal stretch that improves spinal health and targets back pain by helping to 1) rehydrate discs, 2) reduce nerve pressure, 3) realign the spine and 4) relax tense muscles. Best of all, decompressing on a Inversion Table takes only a few minutes and feels great!

1) Rehydrate discs

Clinical studies show that when inverted the separation between the vertebrae increases, this allows for absorption of moisture into the soft tissue of the discs, increasing the nutrient content as well as plumping the discs for better shock absorption and flexibility.

When you are sitting, standing, exercising, or doing other weight-bearing activities, fluid is squeezed out of your discs and into adjacent soft tissue, just as moisture can be squeezed out of a sponge. As a result, your discs lose some of their height. To prove this fact, measure yourself in the morning and then again at night. You will lose half-an-inch to three-fourths-of-an-inch in height by the end of the day. (To see this change you can measure your true height or measure your waist. Height loss can be seen in the size of the waist because although you are shorter your body mass is the same and therefore the ‘column’ of your body increases in diameter).

When you are lying down the compression in the spine is reduced enough to allow the discs to slowly reabsorb moisture and nutrition over the many hours you sleep. However, the discs may not always maintain their full height capacity, creating a total accumulation of height loss of up to two-inches in a life-time.

2) Reduce nerve pressure

The height of the discs relates to the size of the passageway for the nerve roots to exit from the spinal column, so a plump hydrated disc creates maximum clearance, helping to alleviate any pressure or pinching of the nerve root.

A bundle of nerves called the spinal cord run through the spine column; these nerves control communication from the brain to the rest of the body. Nerve roots exit between the vertebrae along the length of the spine in the passageway created by the discs. Damage to the discs or de-hydration/degeneration of the discs can result in nerve root entrapment, or what is commonly called a pinched nerve. Since the nerves extend into the body there can be pain that radiates into extremities. Through the increased hydration to the discs during inversion the discs plump in height, effectively increasing separation between the vertebras and reducing the pressure and pinching on nerve roots.
3) Realign the spine

So many of our daily activities lend themselves to misalignments and possible permanent postural changes; sitting at the computer with rounded shoulders, carrying a heavy bag always on one shoulder, even wearing high heels. Also, many of our most popular sports are one-sided and rotational, like golf, squash, tennis, which puts significant stress on the spine as well as develops muscles on a single side of the body.

4) Relax tense muscles

Muscles are gently stretched as circulation is increased, helping to reduce tension.

EASE STRESS

Stress and tension can cause pain and muscle spasms in the back, neck and shoulders, as well as headaches and other problems. Tense muscles can be attributed to misalignments of the spine, over stimulation of nerves, or poor removal of toxins by the lymphatic system and a lack of oxygen rich circulation.

“Because gravity exerts such a substantial force and because lymph has so far to climb to get to the thoracic duct’s entry into the sub-clavian vein, any inversion of the limbs or even the prone body position allows for a free flow of lymph unencumbered by the effects of gravity. Elevation of the lower limbs is often prescribed for health problems characterized by a pooling of interstitial fluids.”

Also, for centuries yoga practitioners have recognized the concept of turning the body upside down to find relaxation. The head stand position is a form of “postural exchange” (reversing the direction of gravity). Not everyone wants to do headstands, so inversion on inversion equipment creates an easier alternative with the added benefit of joint decompression.

IMPROVE JOINT HEALTH
Decompression aids in joint lubrication by altering the pressure and suction forces within the joint, helping to stimulate the synovial fluid that nourishes the cartilage and enhances shock absorption.

Mobilisation and gentle loading of ligaments can help to increase the collagen content of the tissue, which results in increased ligament strength. Strong ligaments and muscles are vital for proper joint support, and help to protect against injury. Even the Army has utilised Gravity Boots to mitigate joint fatigue injuries. Just as you brush your teeth every day to maintain your dental health, you should attend to the health of your spine with a healthy routine. There is no miracle for back pain; pills to cover up pain do not address the issue, and surgery is a last resort option. Our Orbit Inversion Table is an affordable, natural, and easy to use piece of equipment.

Tight muscles or stiff joints can also cause imbalances, which can result in improper body mechanics and an increased likelihood of injury. Using an Inversion Table provides a natural stretch that gently elongates muscles and decompresses joints, enhancing muscle efficiency, and improving mobility and flexibility.

During a normal day, your joints and especially discs will lose fluid, resulting in a temporary height loss of up to 0.5″ – 0.75″! With the bones now closer together the range of movement is reduced. Inversion has been proven to increase intervertebral separation as it reduces the pressure on the discs and helps them to re-hydrate to restore shock absorption and flexibility.

Muscles adapt to bad posture. For example, with slouching shoulders the muscles in the chest shorten and those in the back lengthen. At some point is becomes to feels strange to stand properly. Inversion helps realign the spine and stretch the shortened muscles, many users report that they stand ‘taller’ and straighter after just a short inversion session. With continued use of the Orbit Inversion Table you may experience permanent improved posture.

IMPROVE FITNESS AND BUILD CORE STRENGTH

Strong abdominals, internal and external obliques, and lower back muscles are vital for proper support of the torso. Crunches or sit-ups on inversion tables is a challenging way to develop and define the core muscles.

Most training activities designed to build core strength must be performed with great technical accuracy or they can injure the back. Inverted exercises can target every core muscle without adding risky, compressive loads to the spine.

Inverted squats on our inversion tables provide a unique leg workout, strengthening the hamstrings and quads while sculpting the glutes.

And Orbit Fitness’ Gravity Inverter is so easy to use…
Set it to your height, secure your ankles and relax. Weight displacement caused by simple arm movements give you total control over the speed and degree of rotation. Optional use of adjustable strap rotation control allows you to pre-set maximum angle of rotation.
Benefits start at the gentle angle of 20 degrees. Over time, work up to at least 60 degrees, where the pressure is reduced to zero and decompression happens in just minutes.
Invert regularly! It only takes a few minutes to decompress the spine, and the stretch feels great and relaxes tired muscles. Use an Inversion Table several times a day to achieve maximum results

Orbit Fitness Inversion Tables have helped thousands like you find natural relief in the convenience of their own homes, and takes only a few minutes a day!

How quickly things can change!

I had a lesson on how quickly the winds of fortune can change today. Saturday’s are usually one of our busiest, if not our busiest day of the week. However saying that it is retail and you never know what can happen. So today we were actually having a quiet day. We had four staff on myself and three others including our Area Manager, that manages all of the stores and two other co-workers, all with several years of experience selling fitness equipment.

We have what you would describe as a coffee table at the very rear of our large shop with some knee-high padded stools around. All four of us had pulled up a pew. Our  Area Manager Tim was on his laptop working while our store manager Gavin and I were woofing into some barbecue chicken and salad sandwiches. I had only just finished constructing two sandwiches myself when my other work mate Brian, who is in his 60s, said “Ryan you’re up!” Referring to customers coming into the store. While I am an enthusiastic person most of the time, we had had a pretty quiet day up until then & had not long ago sat down early afternoon for lunch…let’s just say I wasn’t jumping out of my skin to serve. This was a pivotal point however where I realised how quickly things can change. The customers that I walk down to greet and who had got perhaps one third of their way into the store before I got to them, asked the question as I got close by “Are you Ryan?”  Which immediately put a smile on my face as I replied “yes I am.”

The couple, in their mid 50s explained that I had emailed them almost a month ago regarding an elliptical machine that I recommended and they were down from the country to secure one of the machines for themselves. While I was serving this couple I had gone up to the till to negotiate on price with the powers that be, when I was introduced to a lady that I believe to be with her granddaughter. I had been following up this lady for the last fortnight. My colleague had served for me while I was demonstrating the features on the elliptical machine. And in turn had sold an upright bike and put it under myself, which was uplifting. While I was wrapping up the with my couple from the country & had almost finished I just needed to process payment etc, a father and son that I’d served almost an hour earlier walked back in to purchase a treadmill that we have narrowed down to be the right piece of equipment.

I reflected immediately on how quickly the situation can change.  I admittedly sighed when I was first interrupted from my lunch.  Although these three sales are not going to break and records it was just a wake-up call for myself to keep the chin up and try not to let the environment affect me me because you never know what the universe may throw at you.  All customers in that little rush had been followed up at different points and I probably got disappointed during the process when they were not willing to purchase at the time or were not looking like coming in in the near future. However a good analogy is to look at it as filling a pipeline. Put the work in, and do the right thing, you never know when you may benefit from the fruits of your labour. I know I am not going to be able to remain upbeat at all times, I am only human, and we all have our moments. However reflecting on how quickly things can change can definitely help when having a down day or seeming like you have been dealt a bad hand.

The No.1 Way To Eat (In My Opinion :-)

For sometime now I have been using intermittent fasting as part of my life. Another name for this lifestyle is five and two (5:2). I have tried many different diets or styles of eating including cutting carbohydrates doing the paleo diets and also looked at the Atkins diet. What I have found with other eating patterns or diets are that you need to be super strict all of the time. Personally I find I can hold strong on these diets for four or five days however I find when you break them you break them bad and really go all out and possibly wreck any good doing that you have done.

One of the things I love with the five and two style of living is you only need to be strict on two days of the week you can loosen the rains on the other five days of the week because effectively you are eating 3500 less calories per week by being strict on those two days. Although the two days that you are fasting you are still allowed 500 cal for women and 600 cal for man. I know in some cultures they go without food or even water for long periods of time and I keep this in mind if I feel I’m being hard done by on the fast days. I also think about my body burning my fat stores on my FD (fast days)

Some of the foods I personally like to eat on these fast days are boiled eggs, small tins of tuna, cup-a-soups, or yummy salads. The other thing I like to concentrate on is feeling my belly with fluids, I will have a large green tea or black coffee A large pints of water this is not only healthy for the body it also feels you when you are thinking about food on these fast days. I heard a professor from the a professor of dietrics and nutrition from the University of Queensland talking about the 5:2  diet and she spoke very highly of living this way. Some of the benefits she spoke about were rejuvenating the body, saying as humans we put far too much fuel into our body that is not needed. Giving your body time to reset and actually have less is beneficial for hair growth your skin and generally producing new cells, I think she put it as.

I find that I think about eating heavy on the day after my fast day on my NFD or as they call it non-fast day. However I believe eating light on my fast day probably shrinks my belly and makes me more conscious of food so naturally I tend to eat less.

Another huge benefit I believe is if I do eat a burger driving through the drive through or eat a line of chocolate I don’t feel like the world is going to end! Which is how I have felt when trying to live on a no sugar diets or when trying to cut carbs for long periods of time. I have found as I have got older that my focus is more on my health rather than trying to cut kilos to get and Instagram style wash board stomach. (which I must add I’m never actually got to ha ha ha)

Above I have included a photo of a simple explanation of the 5:2 diet and there is a link to the 5:2 Facebook page also there is over 50,000 members on this page and it is a priceless resource if you are wanting to try this style of living, the community is fantastic also. Feel free to leave any comments or ask any questions I’m no expert but am definitely a large fan of living this way

PS if I miss a week or two during the festive season I know this style of living get you back on track fast

Sample Bike

We received a sample recumbent bike today from the brand Sporttop. The other staff and I were keen to see it built and test it out for ourselves as the two elliptical machines that we offer from this company have a lot to be proud of. All I can say is I hope that the powers at be decide to stock this bike. The first thing you notice is the super comfortable seat which is something that customers get caught up on quite often when testing out this style of bike.The bottom part of the seat is super soft but the extra bonus was having the backrest on a gas strut and easily movable back and forward into any position.

The other thing I notice from the get go was the handles to the side of the seat. These are super comfortable and have cut outs to fit your hand ergonomically which is really cool. The other thing I like is being able to adjust the resistance or mode on these handles not just on the console. The other noticeable difference between this and other bikes was how smooth use the resistance or load was after changing up or using it in a interval style programe the difference between an easier level and the higher levels was not ridiculously noticeable because the bike was so smooth. You can really feel it has a good large flywheel. Fingers crossed we end up stocking this item super impressed from the get go without knowing too much about this bike.

Sloppy Service

I like to keep positive I don’t like to spew out negative crap, however I have a gripe regarding driving through and grabbing take-away from the fast food outlets.

I regard myself as a relatively healthy person however I am not perfect and enjoy fast food from time to time. I have noticed a trend when going through the drive through at fast food outlets and maybe it’s just me? I seem to receive a bag full of the wrong items…no I should correct that, normally most of the items are right, however there seems to be at least one mistake each time.

Even when I make a point of asking for something specific, like a toy for a female child, if possible, they seem to forget it. This I can live with I understand it’s not life altering. My major  gripe is ordering a couple of large messy burgers to drive off down the road and tackle, then reaching to the bottom of the brown paper bag to find no napkins! This puzzles me. Are the staff so young they have never driven a car and tried to eat a messy meal? or is it simply a situation of just not giving a hoot? I wonder am I being too sensitive? Is it the fact that I worked in hospitality for a number of years and it just seems obvious to me if you are eating you are going to want a napkin whilst enjoying your meal.

The best service and quality of fast food I have received is actually overseas. Most recently on a trip to Bali. I love nothing more than enjoying the Indonesian food. The first thing I want to do when I get off the plane is hook into a large mound of Nasi Goreng or similar. However on late nights commuting back to the Hotel  I find we shoot through a drive through all race into a fast food restaurant to get an easy fast meal. I could not fault the customer service, even with a communication breakdown at times. The freshness and temperature of food and also getting the order correct with bulk condiments and napkins. It is obvious that the employee’s & management take pride in what they are doing. Again I don’t like to bitch and moan however I feel the service they are providing is not rocket science.  It is a tried and true method of what should be speedy service and a simple yet effective meal when on the run.

Statistics show that as many as one in eight Americans have at some point worked in that largest franchise restaurant train chain in the world at some point in their life it is staggering that same chain serve as many as 68 million people worldwide per day. I’ve gotta say as wired as ‘The Golden Arches’ has it, I personally like to support the burger chain that started in good old Innaloo, Perth Western Australia 45 years ago, just minutes away from where I work most days of the week. They say ‘the burgers are better’…and Jack Cowan the founder has an estimated net worth of over one billion dollars and has part ownership of KFC, Domino’s, Channel Ten & Fairfax Media just to name a few. It is staggering looking at some of the statistics for what both fast food chains have done.

Some of the other statistics I found interesting in regards to Australia setting benchmarks for the rest of the world are the McCafe which believe it or not was introduced in 2004 and has gone on to boost McDonald’s brand in sales by a reported 60% and has spread to a other parts of the world. The “Create Your Taste” idea was another Australian first that has gone on to be popular and introduced in some of the other 118 countries that McDonald’s operates in. For interesting statistics & history on both companies click the link below. Please feel free to comment also. I would love to know if you find service frustrating at times. Or even what’s your favourite menu choice when eating fast food? Personally I’m a burger head!

Add WHAT? To Easily Peel An Egg?

One of my absolute favorite foods is eggs. They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet. Taste super yummy a variety of ways, are quick as to prepare and are not expensive for what they are proven to do for your body. Boiled is an easy way to carry eggs if you are not hooking straight into them and it is one of the simplest healthiest ways to eat them. Don’t you just hate when peeling them becomes a monumentus pain in the behind if you score a stubborn batch? Well read to the end & I have a super easy addition that will make peeling your googie simple and fast every time!

-Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a baby chicken. Really… eggs are pretty much the perfect food, they contain a little bit of almost every nutrient we need.

– Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.

-They Are High in Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health-The antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin are very important for eye health and can help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. Eggs are high in both of them.
-Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios-eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams.

-Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke-In one review of 17 studies with a total of 263,938 participants, no association was found between egg consumption and heart disease or stroke.

– Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight-In one study of 30 overweight women, eating eggs instead of bagels for breakfast increased feelings of fullness and made them automatically eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours.

On top of everything else, they are also cheap, easy to prepare, go with almost any food and taste awesome.

So how do you take the headache out of peeling a boiled egg?-Add a tablespoon of bi-carb soda and a teaspoon of salt to the water. I cook mine for exactly 7 minutes, then straight into cold water to stop the cooking process and voila. You will have an egg that just wants to pop out of its shell! Please feel free to leave a comment. How do love to eat your eggs?
