Total-Body Benefits of the Blast Lower Belly Fat & Strengthen Core Workout!
Comparison : Comparing yourself to others simply does not make any sense! Your relationship with yourself is the most important one!
Most comparisons are considered to be dangerous. The only comparisons that are considered to be healthy are those that inspire you to make a change in your life for the better. Other than that most comparisons are damaging to our positive mental health. When you compare yourself to somebody else, you don't really focus on you!. When you compare yourself to others, you fail to accept or acknowledge the choices you truly have.
If you can concentrate on comparing yourself to how you have you changed, the results will be those choices.
How not to compare with others?
- Practice gratitude
- Unlock the power of contentment
- Don't compare your life to everyone else's
- Focus on your strengths
- Celebrate other people
- Learn to compete with yourself instead of others
Be your own best friend and only make comparisons about yourself!
Energy : Exercise boosts energy! Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. When your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily chores. Any exercise or physical activity that gets the heart rate up and the blood flowing and releases endorphins is going to raise your energy level.
Thinking Positively : Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile. Positive thinking is very beneficial for our mental health, primarily because it eliminates any form of paranoia and negative thoughts that can cause depression and stress. The process is actually a domino effect in terms of our overall health. Those who think positively feel happier and more contented with their lives. Positive thinking can lead to enhanced creativity, staying focused, problem-solving skills and overall mental productivity.
How to think positive thoughts
- Focus on the good things. Challenging situations and obstacles are a part of life.
- Keep a gratitude journal
- Open yourself up to humor
- Spend time with positive people
- Practice positive self-talk
- Identify your areas of negativity
- Start every day on a positive note
'Positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude that focuses on the good and expects results that will benefit you. It’s about anticipating happiness, health and success instead of expecting theworst.' Tony Robbins
