Joe Vitale lists 10 immediate actions we can take to help restore the feeling of happiness during those moments when

I admit it: I don’t always feel great.

Yea, I’m surprised, too.

You’d think the author of such self-help books as The Attractor Factor and The Key, who stars in the inspiring movie The Secret, would have it together by now.

Sorry to disappoint you.

I still have my “moments.”

At least today they are only off moments where in the past they were bad days.
But if Boston can transform a prison into a luxury hotel called Liberty Hotel, then you and I can transform our mood.

So let me give you an early Christmas present by sharing ten self-help tips I do to shift my emotions which may help you, as well:

1. Pet a cat. I look into the eyes of my pets and I begin to feel more relaxed. They purr and my world changes. Ahhhhh…

2. Walk a dog. Just moving can make you feel better but having an excited dog tug at you to move you along faster is even better.

3. Play loud music. Nothing like hearing great music from Michelle Malone — or AC/DC or Stevie Ray Vaughan or Bruce Springsteen — playing at ear ringing levels to make me forget my woes. Dance to the music and unhappiness doesn’t stand a chance of surviving.

4. Make a decision. As I say in the movie The Secret, and in my books The Attractor Factor and The Key, setting an intention for how you want your day to go will realign you and your day. How do you want to feel? What do you want to achieve? Focus on that and you’ll begin to go toward it.

5. Help someone. Feeling unhappy is a selfish experience, so share it with someone you love. Just kidding. You can lift your own mood by looking for someone who is sad and comforting them. Listen to them. Buy them a cookie. Anything to take the focus off of you.

6. Feel grateful. Look around and find something, anything, to feel truly grateful to have. Gratitude is a powerful attractor of more to feel grateful for. Compared to people in the past and people in third world countries, you have it made.

7. Watch a movie. Movies shift your feelings and thoughts and can be a powerful way to improve your mood. Watch The Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges, etc. I liked the Bruce Willis movie 13 Blocks. Watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Watch Donny Deutsch’s The Big Idea. Watch cartoons. Whatever flips your switch.

8. Eat something. Yes, it’s comfort food when you reach for a meal when you aren’t really hungry and feel like crap, but food helps put you in the moment, shifts your serotonin levels, and makes your blood rush from your head to your stomach. Just don’t make this a habit.

9. Detach. Consider this a spiritual exercise and learn to detach from your thoughts, feelings and body. As I write in Zero Limits, you are the witness behind it all. Enjoy the show. Life is a play, my friend. It just seems real.

10. Smile. Look in the mirror and create a dozen different ways to smile. How would a kid do it? Go ahead. Be silly. No one is watching. You might start laughing at yourself and sooner or later, son of a gun, you’re really smiling.

Bonus Tip: Take action. Nothing beats simply diving into a project, preferably something you’ve been wanting to do anyway. Getting lost in the doing is a smart way to transcend your mood and get something productive done, as well. Forget avoiding. Start doing.

Finally, remember what comedian George Burns said –
“Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.”
Well, are you happy now?
Ao Akua,

The Sugar In Your Drink (soft drinks) Causes Weight Gain and Is Linked To Diabetes

The following report is courtesy of Todays Health Tip and Healthy and Sweet and Diabetes in Control
———————————————————————-
Researchers at Rutgers University found that soft drinks sweetened with HFCS may contribute to the development of diabetes, particularly in children.?

Since the 1980s virtually all the sodas and most of the fruit drinks sold in the supermarket have been sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)—after water, corn sweetener is their principal ingredient. Read the ingredients on the label of any processed food and provided you know the chemical names it travels under, corn is what you will find. For modified or unmodified starch, for glucose syrup and maltodextrin, for crystalline fructose and ascorbic acid, for lecithin and dextrose, lactic acid and lysine, for maltose and HFCS, for MSG and polyols, for the caramel color and zanthan gum, read: corn.”

In 2006, Rodale Press, the Prevention Magazine folks (who were right about organic agriculture), published a book called “The Sugar Solution.” Page 6 reads, “And there’s growing evidence that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), now the most ubiquitous sweetener in the American food supply, is directly linked to the national’s twin epidemics of overweight and diabetes. HFCS’s role? This sweetener seems to bypass the body’s “I feel full” mechanisms. In a study of 93,000 women, Harvard School of Public Health researchers recently linked a 10 pound weight gain and 83% high diabetes risk directly to the consumption of HFCS.”

In August 2007 researchers at Rutgers University found that soft drinks sweetened with HFCS may contribute to the development of diabetes, particularly in children. In a laboratory study of commonly consumed carbonated beverages, the scientists found that drinks containing the syrup had high levels of reactive compounds called carbonyls that could trigger cell and tissue damage leading to diabetes. These reactive carbonyls are also elevated in the blood of individuals with diabetes and linked to the complications of the disease. Based on the study data, Chi-Tang Ho, PhD, professor of food chemistry, estimates that a single can of soda contains about five times the concentration of reactive carbonyls found in the blood of an adult person with diabetes.

Safe Home Cleaners

To clean with natural products all you need is:
Baking soda
Vinegar
Borax
Hydrogen peroxide
Liquid castile soap
Organic essential oils (optional)
Mixing bowls
Spray bottles
Micro fiber cloths
Vodka (optional)

Baking Soda is great to scrub your bath and kitchen. Put it in a glass grated cheese container with a stainless steel top that has holes in it, and just sprinkle the baking soda on the surfaces and scrub. You may add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to this. Lavender and tea tree oil have anti-bacterial qualities.

Baking soda mixed with apple cider vinegar is a bubbly combination that has many uses. As a drain cleaner, sprinkle baking soda down the drain then add apple cider vinegar and let it bubble for 15 minutes, then rinse with hot water. This is a safer alternative to dangerous drain cleaners. Baking soda and apple cider make a wonderful spa-like bath for soaking away aches and pains and detoxing. It also cleans the tub and the drain.

Baking soda can also be used as a fabric softener in your laundry.

To polish silver, instead of using toxic silver polish, fill your kitchen sink with hot water, add a sheet of aluminum foil and baking soda, and let the silver pieces soak until clean. It is an easy and fun way to clean silver.

Vinegar can clean almost anything in your house; you can add liquid castile soap, essential oil (optional), and filtered water, then clean floors, windows, bath, kitchen, etc. Vinegar can also be used as a fabric softener. Never use dryer sheets — they are toxic too. In the laundry, use vinegar in the wash cycle to prevent fabrics from fading.

Commercial window cleaners contain butyl cellosolve — a toxic ingredient that is not listed on the labels, so vinegar and water is much safer. Use a micro fabric cloth, not newspaper, which contains toxic dyes.

Borax is a good laundry booster and cleaner (it can even remove mold) — and is safe and non-toxic.

Hydrogen peroxide is a disinfectant, and is safer to use than chlorine bleach for disinfecting and whitening. Lemon juice is also a natural whitener.

Liquid Castile Soaps can be found in health food stores and are safer than commercial liquid cleaning products.

Organic essential oils may be used in homemade cleaning products depending on your personal preference and tolerance to these scents. Never use synthetic fragrances or air cleaners.
Commercial fabric refreshers also contain dangerous chemicals, therefore, use vodka in a spray bottle to freshen up chairs and upholstery. The vodka is cheaper, non-toxic and the alcohol evaporates, and is not harmful. The alcohol in hand sanitizers is harmful, however, and should not be used on children since the alcohol absorbs into your body via your skin. Therefore, use only hand sanitizers that are plant based from the health food store, or just good old soap and water.

Walking for Better Health

October 23, 2007 by · Leave a Comment

Many of us struggle with the concept of regular
exercise. We lack an understanding of how to create
an effective routine, our motivation is virtually
nonexistent, and we just don’t have the time…so we
say.

Luckily, we have the natural ability to walk, a
simple and effective form of exercising.
Walking is considered a low-impact exercise that can
gently ease you into high-impact fitness training.
According to the Mayo Clinic, walking can reduce the
risk of heart attack, help lower blood pressure,
control weight, lift spirits, and reduce stress.

The WalkingSite, www.walkingsite.com, suggests a
person walk 10,000 steps per day, or five miles.
However, most sedentary individuals only average
between 1,000 and 3,000 steps a day. by wearing a
pedometer, a person can easily track the amount of
steps taken on a daily basis. And there are several
simple ways to increase the amount of steps you take.
It is never too late to start a standardized walking
regimen.

Getting the exercise you need for better
health is as simple as strolling around the block,
hiking the stairs, or cruising around the mall.
Remember, start out slow, keep track of your progress,
and increase at your own pace. With a little focused
effort and dedication, you can get the cardio exercise
you need without the cost of a gym membership.
