It is something, nobody seems to realize and to think about it.
With every new waking up for a new day we accept it as something normal.
We do not think, neither be grateful for the new day the universe gives us.
Living another new day is something marvelous and exceptional because there are thousands of people who are not lucky enough to see the new sunlight every morning because they never open their eyes they left us during the night and we are the lucky ones and we are not even grateful for that new day we enjoy.
Our today’s society leaves us in such a hurry and stress that we forget almost everything we freely enjoy without noticing it.
We enjoy a healthy and strong body, some don’t have a healthy body but they enjoy every new day they can open their eyes and say thanks for the opportunity to enjoy a new day.
Give thanks for what you have in your life, not only for the material stuff but for the health you enjoy.
Have you ever thought about how many times you breathe per minute and per hour? But we don’t even think about it it’s just normal for us to breathe.
Have you ever thought about what you have in your precious body?
What a hard labor your heart is fulfilling every day – what do I say every second, minute, hour, the whole day 24/7/365 night and day since you were born and it cease working until you die.
But we have never thought about it until we have the first problem.
Your heart works like a slave and we never care about it or think about it how or what we can do to give our heart an easier work.
That we eat healthier that your heart has not to pump so hard to get the blood to all parts of your body. It works when you sleep. It works when you have your siesta. It works and works and works without any rest.
Did you know that your heart contracts at a rate of roughly 72 beats per minute at rest?
That is roughly 4320 per hour and over 100,000 beats per day. That is amazing what our heart is working and without really caring or knowing about it.
We do not care much about our heart neither we do know a lot about it. As long as we are living and walking and running we do not care what our heart is doing or how our heart is doing.
It starts the moment when we have a problem – when our heart suddenly doesn’t function correctly or when we have some blood circulation problem or whatever.
Than we start to worry.
Than we try or not to change our lifestyle.
Than we start to make maintenance on our body or heart.
You know the heart works like a hydraulic pump in a machine. The moment you contaminate the oil system or the moment you do not any adequate maintenance as checking the cooling system of the hydraulic oil that it doesn’t heat up too much and starting to increase the pump temperature the pump will start to lose efficiency and within a short time the pump will fail or work with lower pressure and your production is slowing down.
The same happens with our heart it needs to have certain kind of maintenance or an adequate lifestyle to maintain the heart at its best efficiency.
It has some moments of hard beat and some moments of slow beat only than is when your heart and your body will function at its best.
— start being grateful for your body, start being grateful every morning that you wake up and that you will live another day.
… thank for what you have
Give thanks for what you have in your life not only material stuff but health, that you breathe and breathe lots of times per minute per hour when you are asleep when you are awake.
Give thanks for having a nice and beautiful wife that supports you and helps you through tough times and all the good things you see and feel in your daily life.
Don’t give it for granted, it is hard sometimes to give thanks for something we feel as normal and as automatic because it is a habit that we are used to and we accept it and until we have some problems we never give a thought about it.
So, there is my next question.
There is a lot of talking about dieting, but ask yourself, is it necessary to let your body starve of something you eagerly want.
I guess not because you deserve to eat what your body desires. Okay, I do not mean that you hump everything into your mouth without limits, no this is not the way I would want you to do.
Just take a small portion and savor it in your mouth, mind and body and stop.
That’s all don’t be as an addict, eat it once in a while because you will not train your body to eat it every day, won’t you.
You have to be able to say no after enjoying something that you liked in that moment, that’s all.
Let me tell you something, not always is the best thing to do Atkins, cabbage soup, banana, hot dog, or egg diet or whatever the name of the different diets are.
What I have found out with my own body, being on a diet will bring down your weight, but for how long before you gain more weight than before your diet?
It takes not long and starve for the rest of your precious life I guess this is not the purpose of any diet or maybe yes, because they like to cheat you because they like that you buy this or that program or product to lose weight, but they don’t tell you how to do it, how to start with your idea of losing weight.
They don’t tell you that it is not only that you want to lose weight, no it is much more it is a process of preparation. You want to change a bad habit for a good one for the rest of your life.
Yes, I tell you, you have to prepare yourself and your mind to do it and to have the desire to lose weight. But don’t tell me that you have the desire but you don’t do more than desire it.
Some people they need more time for preparation than others. You have to prepare yourself otherwise you will be contempt to failure.
But this should not keep you away from your idea to lose weight on the contrary it should inspire you more.
Let me tell you something, everyone who stays on a diet most of the time will interrupt his diet. And do you know why…
because he is starving to eat something that he or she has seen and suddenly thinks one time doesn’t really matter…
I can eat it and bum she is interrupting her diet without knowing, because the truth is when you think one time this way, you will think the second time the same way.
Even if you say to yourself oh, it is only a little bit of a chocolate or ice cream and I will do a little bit more workout to get it off my body, I tell you it is not that what matters it is your will that matters.
Because later on everything you want you will get it and within a short time you don’t have a diet anymore without knowing it. You also will lose the resistant you have had for doing something different.
With other words you will lose your self confidence that is more important than any diet.
I know it is hard and I still experience it sometimes. So why start a diet when you know you cannot finish it or you know that you never will get through it…
…it is because of your heart you want to give a smoother work for your heart, you will give it less work that it doesn’t worn out too early.
With other words you want to live a long and healthier and more comfortable life.
It is hard to eat only certain things a diet allows you.
It is even harder to stay for a long time on a diet and losing not only weight but also energy because the diet you choose will suck also your energy out of your body
because you eat only some stuff without having the proper nutrients to maintain your body with energy.
I tell you I never could spend any diet more than a week or maybe even less and I started to eat what I really want and wished for.
The only thing that I recommend is: don’t eat junk food.
In my opinion the best is to eat everything that you like and that nurtures you but in small quantities without eating junk food.
With that you will see that within a reasonable time, your energy will come back and you will feel great and full of energy.
