7 Ways Meditation Boosts Your Physical Well-Being

meditation_sun

Meditation is one of the most important exercises you can do for your mind and body. You hear athletes and coaches always talk about mindset and the mentality it takes to be a champion. Well regardless if you want to be a champ on the court or in life, one must learn to train all aspects of the body. Meditation has been proven to help with not only sports performance but also a ton of over issues.

Here are 7 ways meditation boosts your physical well-being:

*  Boosts Immune System
*  Decreases inflammation
*  Regulates blood sugar levels
*  Lowers blood pressure
*  Helps reduce heart disease
*  Helps manage chronic pain
*  Improves metabolism and aids in weight loss

We’ll post more about best practices of ways of meditation but for now don’t overthink it.  It’s not some crazy thing, it’s training the mind.  Think of meditation as learning to shut down your mind for a period of time. Think about all the things that are going on inside your head each day.  Bill’s, work, family, friends, relationships, and a whole list of other things we think about daily. Imagine just being able to shut it all down and hit the reset button. There’s a reason why some of the most influential people in the world meditate daily.

We believe that no matter how strong the body may be, if the mind is weak in any form there is no balance. Just think about all the benefits from something that takes as little as ten minutes a day. Give it a try, what do you have to lose?

Why Aren’t You Following Your Dreams? Stop The Distractions Now

6a00d83451f00f69e2013488762af1970c-800wi

 

If you ask this question to ten different people were almost certain you will get ten different answers.  With things like money, time, kids, work, no wonder nobody ever gets anything done.  Well we are here to tell you that is not the case at all. If you want something bad enough you will always find a way.

We comprised a list of a few things that can help you create more valuable time for yourself. Think of this as a list of “bad habits to break” or stop now.

1. Emails – If you’re the kind of person who checks emails first thing in the morning and last thing at night, stop it now! Stop being a slave to your phone or computer, unless it’s an emergency it can wait. Pick 2 times during the day that you check emails, leave an auto-reply telling people when you check emails. Turn off your email notifications so you don’t have that distraction.

2. Don’t answer calls from unrecognized phone numbers. If it’s important enough they will leave a message. Most of these calls are just interruptions throughout the day or leave you in position of poor negotiating or off guard.

3. Do not agree to meetings or calls if no clear agenda or schedule  is made up front. We’ve all been in those 30 minute meetings that lasted well over two hours. Not getting suckered into that anymore.

4. Do not work more to fix “overwhelmingness” issues. Basically if you don’t create a plan of attack everything will seem urgent and important. Most people take on more than they can chew, or do more than they can handle. Don’t be that person, one thing at a time. Life is not a race, take your time and do it right.

5. Phone breaks – in a nutshell don’t have your phone with you 24/7. Do yourself a favor and take one day off a week from technology or start with just a few hours.  Whatever it is take a break from always being connected. Do yourself another favor and don’t sleep with the phone in your bedroom, put it in a different room even if it’s on the other side.

Let’s face it most people always say they don’t have the time or wish they could do it. The reality is you can! If you truly want it bad enough you will ultimately find a way or a way out. These are just a few things you can do right now to free you from the distractions of life and allow you to live the HellaLife you’ve always wanted. Work smart, stay humble and do the right things in life and the universe will reward you.

Stay on that Journey~

“The Comfort Zone” is The #1 Killer

11059998_1026906624001239_1103334021676711859_n

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life”
– Muhammad Ali

What is the “Comfort Zone”?

The comfort zone in our view is nothing more than a trap. Most people live their entire lives on autopilot mode experiencing very little positive or negative emotions. Due to this lack of emotion we are often not even aware that we are stuck in this trap.

How many of you can name someone who hates their job but is scared to search for a new one?  Or maybe someone who has never left their hometown before?  Or maybe even you’ve had a great idea but failed to pursue it for some other reason?

For some reason in our society doing something out of the “norm” is considered crazy by some people. It’s almost as if we’ve been programmed from childhood to be in this routine. But this can’t be what life is all about, not the one we have envisioned.

So, we are here to tell you to stop it right now! It’s time to make a change if you’ve fell into this trap. That’s the beauty of life is that you can make a change at anytime you wish.  Here’s an interesting exercise to try out, write down all the things you wish you could be doing with your life. Then we want you to write down what would be the worst case scenario if you dropped everything right now to pursue some of those things. Then, if you had to go back what steps would you take to get yourself there.  We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that you didn’t die during this process right? So if you didn’t die and you can always go back to what you were doing what’s holding you back?

We don’t expect anyone to change overnight but we do believe in small goal setting “baby steps”.   Here are some useful tips to getting out of a routine or looking to try/do new things:

1. Looking to read more – Instead of trying to force yourself to crame hours of reading why not set yourself a small goal like reading 10 pages a day.

2.  Learn new things –  This newfound knowledge can be academic or practical; it doesn’t matter, so long as it broadens your horizons. Try to learn something new everyday.

3.  Analyze your life – Every once in a while, you should put your life on pause, take a step back, and take a good look at where you stand. Figure out what you’ve accomplished so far and examine the distance between that place and where you intend to go in your life.

4.  Travel to new places – This doesn’t have to be explained much we don’t think.  Just go to new places and explore new experiences.

5.  Take Risks – This is what separates the men from the boys.  You’re gonna win some but you might also lose some in life but this is where you learn the most.

Living a HellaLife isn’t easy nor is it for everyone. But were here to tell you that everyone and anyone can make a change for the better.  Live the life you’ve always wanted, better yourself and help the world be better than the way you left it.  Confront your fears and start to breakout of that comfort zone and live that HellaLife.

To ‘Dad Bod’ or Not To ‘Dad Bod’

hot-dad-bod-600x377

 

I’m sure by now you’ve been inundated with ‘dad bod‘ articles circling around the web. It’s been a pretty big debate from what we can see (joking). But it does raise a good question about health, fitness and living a good life.

For those who are unfamiliar with the ‘dad bod’ we’ll keep it simple, males who usually go to the gym but also like to live a little so a little extra around the waist is normal to see. Ladies love guys who put the focus on fun, not physique, saying they’re friendlier, more mature and less narcissistic.

So, as a male in my thirties who’s been an athlete my entire life and knows what it takes to maintain a “healthy physique” is it worth it all? The countless days and hours training in the gym while everyone else is out enjoying life. All for some washboard abs and maybe a hot looking girlfriend or two? Now, don’t get me wrong I believe it’s important to keep the body in tip top shape. But does that mean training beastmode 2-3 hours everyday? What’s wrong with going to happy hour and enjoying margaritas and tacos?

dadbod_main_1akg0kv-1akg0lp

We love the fact that Leonardo Dicaprio somehow was made the poster boy of this new movement. Let’s not forget people he’s filthy rice and can do whatever he desires! So give us your thoughts on the ‘dad bod’. I definitely feel that you need to find balance in life and making sure you are enjoying every moment of it.
