9 Ways to Live Longer

9 Ways to Live Longer

Live healthy, live longer By just making a few changes in your lifestyle, you can help yourself live longer! In a recent study, it was found that four bad behaviours – smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not exercising, and no eating enough fruits and veggies – can hustle you into an early grave, and in effect, age you by as many as 12 years. The good news is, there is something you can do about it, to correct these and other unhealthy behaviours. Adopting the following nine habits will help keep your body looking and feeling young! Don’t overeat If you want to live to be 100, leaving a little bit of food on your plate may be a good idea. Did you know that studies on longevity round the world found that the oldest Japanese people stop eating when they are feeling only about 80% full. Research has confirmed that eating less helps you age slower. It was found in a study in 2008 that limiting calories lowered production of T3, a thyroid hormone that slows metabolism – and speeds up the aging process. Overeating is a common and complex behaviour in today’s culture. More people eat more junk food than they should, and there are more people overweight today than five years ago. Get Busy Did you know that having sex two to three times per week can add as many as three years to your life! Regular sex may also lower your blood pressure, boost your immunity, improve your sleep, and protect your heart. So ‘getting busy’ can burn an impressive amount of calories – sometimes...
10 Fun Ways to Burn 200 Calories EASILY

10 Fun Ways to Burn 200 Calories EASILY

Most of us want to lead an active fun lifestyle, burn those calories, and stay in shape. Right? But when the term ‘staying in shape’ is bantered around, connotations of gym visits, jogging miles, lifting weights…. pops up, and there goes our momentum for staying in shape. Some of us love going to gyms, many of us don’t! Well, I just found a list of 10 fun – yes FUN!! Activities that burn about 200* calories each, without requiring you to hit the weights or step foot in a gym! Now that to me is my type of staying in shape. (*Calories burned vary by individual body type. Calories based on study done by Mayo Clinic. www.mayoclinic.com ) 1. Lace up those shoes. Get a breath of fresh air by hiking. Trekking your favourite trail for 28 minutes will help you get physically fit while allowing you to enjoy nature. Take a friend or family member, and enjoy the hike with someone else. There are some beautiful national parks around, or small mountain climbs – find one that you would enjoy, and go for it. 2. Let the courts do the talking. Playing basketball for a mere 21 minutes will get you through 200 calories in no time. Get a group together or swing by your local community basketball court for a pickup game. This doesn’t mean you have to be good at it, it just means you are enjoying a game with friends. If not basketball, netball, or even squash. 3. Strike it out. Need a slower pace? Try bowling. Don’t worry about your strikes or spares–after 55...

What does Financial Freedom mean to you?

What does Financial Freedom mean to you?

Some of you may be thinking, well, what is financial freedom? When preparing to write this blog, I came across literally hundreds of ‘definitions’ of what others say financial freedom is. Often there is a misconception that having a lot of money gives you financial freedom, but while it is wonderful to have an abundance of income or wealth, there are people who are in this position, who are not happy. On the other side of the coin, there are people with a modest income and home who consider themselves financially free. So you see, financial freedom is more than money. Financial freedom means different things to different people. Some people may want to travel the world and in order to do so, sell all their possessions and travel! To them, they are financially free to do whatever they want. Another person may want to work from home so that he/she can see the family more frequently. Already, just with two examples, you can see that there are so many different ways to have financial freedom. How you define it is up to you. As far as I’m concerned, financial freedom is the ability to do what I love, be my own boss, work from home or anywhere I choose, and have the freedom to live life as I choose. I have a vision, and financial freedom certainly plays a major role in the success of that vision. What does it mean to you? I want you to think about this question. It may take some time for you to answer it clearly and honestly. But, if you are...
Amanda B Transformation Story

Amanda B Transformation Story

I have never been heavily overweight, but I did struggle for many years with a few extra kilos, but more than that I was unsatisfied with the lack of progress I was seeing in my body shape, even though I exercised regularly and ate a balanced diet. Although my weight had not altered much by the end of the 90 day transformation program, my body measurements had changed dramatically to my great satisfaction. I’d lost 29.5cm from my total body measurements with 8.5cm off my waist alone. I had not been able to achieve this using any other exercise method nor diet. I could see more definition across my whole body and when the compliments started coming, I knew others could see the dramatic changes as well. More than a year later I have retained my weight and also my measurements. I’ve tried to remain on a well balanced eating plan and continued my usual exercise routine and by taking my nutritional supplements recommended to me by My Lifestyle Choices, I’ve had the energy and motivation to continue to look and feel great. I’m grateful I’ve had the opportunity to undertake this program and to have benefited now and well into the future from its success. Thank You! Amanda B. Queensland Results: Lost 29cm and...
