Smoking Addiction – Say No with Strong Willpower

When we came into this world, there were empty hands. There was no burden on the mind in childhood, no complaints from the child. There was lightness in life, it seemed that spreading hands would flutter slightly with feathers, fly away.

Gradually began to grow in the burden … and also of mind. As all the conflicts, responsibilities, problems, challenges and anxiety increases, heart-brains became overwhelming. But live, and smiles too. In this way everyone took their own ways to calm their minds.

Someone chose the path of meditation, yoga and other exercise to calm his mind, but such people were very few. Someone wanted to throw every worry in the smoke, but was it really frozen in every bit of smoke? Did not one more burden on the mind come? Quite a sense of harm to your own body?

Is it really difficult to quit smoking habita?It’s difficult, but not impossible. You must have seen many people around you, who have overcome their addiction with the help of the will. There are many instances where those people have left their habit of smoking which could not stay without it for a while. Why do not you when they can?

Make a list of benifits of quiting smoking:

First of all, you have to come out of the heart that you can not quit this habit. There is no such bad habit in the world that you can not leave.

After this, the second step is settling your mind. Make sure that you will do this. Then start exploring the path. Get advice from those who have completely overcome their addiction. Talk to your family and close friends about what they think about your habit and why do you want to look away from this? Make a list of what benefits you will get from quitting smoking and what to do to stop them. Keep it with you.

Why Others Make ill

When you focus on the benefits of quitting smoking, you will also seriously consider how smoking affects the health of the people around you. You must have heard about second hand smoking and also know how dangerous it is?

You are responsible for your own loss, but the person next to you is harming your health without any mistake. Due to being with you, your family is paying a heavy price. If you talk about mental impact, think about yourself or your children. What will they be learning? Their soft lungs may have been affected, and they may have an impact on their mind too.

Why do we smoke, only because of our bad habit? Think about your family who want you to leave this bad habit. If you really want to quit smoking then make a firm determination and leave smoking for your children, friends and family from today.

Are You Really Weak? – Absolute Awareness

In fact, you are not. You do have that strength but you do not use it. So, go for it, use it and break the greatest obstacles.

The Absolute Awareness State is here. Already reached the peak of the mountain after so much effort and now it is time to rest.

When the physical body has rested for the amount of time needed, then it is time to descend. One cannot stay there any longer.

It is not that easy because the state of the physical body is so blissful. It does not want to descend. It wants only to remain at the peak and stay like that but it is not possible.

The physical body is still alive and the journey is a successful one. This physical body has succeeded in finding its root.

Now, it is time for it to continue on living and it cannot live at the peak. This is because in this world one cannot live in this State only. It has to come down again and live life as it has to be lived.

So, to descend from that Absolute Awareness State is not that easy. It has taken months and even more than a year to be settled again in this modern world.

Cooling Down (Warm Out) After your Workouts

Your workout is not complete without a warm out. In fact, it is as important as the actual workout and the warm-up.

After an intense workout, your muscles are tired and sore; they need to be cooled down.

Why is this important?

Cooling down helps reduce the level of lactic acid that build up during the exercise thus reducing cases of muscle cramping and stiffness.

Warm out or cooling down is also vital in helping you to gradually recover from post-exercise blood pressure and heart rate.

After the exercise, your body is burning with high temperature, increased heart beat and your blood vessels become dilated.

So if you stop abruptly, it could result in a pass out or extreme fatigue. Doing a physical activity that stretches your body at the end of the exercise gradually brings you to normal condition.

Just like warm-up, cooling down also involves continuing with the workouts but with reduced intensity and pace. It could be the last 10 minutes of your workout. Some of the cooling down activities include:

  • Walking for 5 – 10 minutes after intense activities such as running, squats.

  • Stretching your body for 1 – 2 minutes especially on body parts that were actively engaged during the workout. Stretching reduces the tension after exercise. It also stabilizes blood circulation and enhances healing of break down muscles.

  • Hydrate:

  • The weight that you immediately loose after a workout is normally water. Apart from replenishing lost weight, drinking water improves body strength and flexibility. It also reduces cases of muscle soreness.
  • Massage:

  • There is no unanimous agreement on this but some research shows that massage after an intense workout can improve muscle recovery.

Health and Fitness Parameters

Let’s assume that there was a workout school out there that you could attend; you’d be taught five main subjects:

  • Cardio respiratory fitness,
  • Muscular endurance,
  • Muscular strength,
  • Flexibility
  • Body composition.

You cannot do any justice to the time spent working out or the calories burnt if they do not lead to any kind of progress or learning on these five core areas of fitness.

Cardio respiratory fitness:

Ability of the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen and nutrients to working cells or muscles which are demanding them — let’s say you’re climbing stairs, then your leg muscles will demand more blood supply, oxygen and nutrient delivery and will need to remove or recycle waste products (like lactic acid).

Muscular strength:

The greatest amount of force (maximal effort) that a muscle or a group of muscles, can exert at one time. This is called muscular strength.

Muscular endurance:

The ability of a muscle or group of muscles to perform repeated activity over a period of time. For example, if you are moving furniture or if you are making laddoos, then you would be using your muscular endurance.

Flexibility:

Ability of joints to move through their full range of motion (ROM). For example, a bowler would move his shoulder through a full range of motion before coming in to bowl.

Body composition:

This refers to the fat mass that you carry as compared to the total body mass you have. For women this should be 25% or under and men 20% or under. For example, when someone says they want to look toned and not flabby, they actually mean that they would like to reduce the fat mass and increase the lean mass (bone and muscle), basically improve body composition.

Now the moral of the story is, when you make improvements on the first four parameters of fitness, it results in improvement (lowering fat mass) of the fifth parameter, that of body composition. Learning these ‘subjects’ or making improvements on these fitness parameters leads to an improvement in overall health, sense of wellbeing, sharpens your kinaesthetic (bodily) intelligence and yeah, improves your appearance and looks too. It also leads to perfect harmony in our hormones, leads to stable moods and puts the mind into the ‘feel-good’ mode, unlike the high-strung or run-down state of mind that most weight-loss plans lead to. Every time I am invited as a speaker at medical conferences or colleges, I strongly urge the medicos to use the term ‘improve your body composition’ or ‘make improvements in strength and stamina’ while advising their patients versus the often used ‘just lose some weight’ as a remedy to lifestyle diseases or aches and pains.

Draw Your Thoughts

Before we invented language, we communicated and thought in images. But for many centuries, words have been our primary way to communicate. And that’s why we also think in words. When I think, I talk to myself. And when I take notes, I also talk to myself.

“Create a chapter about drawing your thoughts,” is what I wrote in my notebook when I came up with the idea for this chapter. I find that fascinating. One of the best-known thinkers of all time, thought visually.

Now, we don’t have to become this great at drawing, but I think we can still learn something. Drawing frees your mind from the constant verbalization. I started drawing the images for my blog posts over a year ago. My drawing skills haven’t improved, but my articles have. And one of the reasons is that I take time to think about how I can visually share my idea. I want readers to immediately “get” what I’m trying to share in the article by looking at my drawings.

That’s why I think a lot about visualizing an idea. Sometimes I draw a graph, sometimes I emphasize a sentence or word, and I even make simple cartoons. After I make the drawing, I often edit my article to make my idea clearer. And some articles even start with a drawing.

It’s All in The Mind- A Short Motivational Story

There was a boy who was born with a severe physical disability One of his legs was so weak, that he had to have a brace on it. At first, he was not at all bothered by this handicap. But when he started going to school, he became dejected. He could not run; he could not climb trees; he could not play games like all the other boys.

Sensing his depression, his father decided to take the boy to a famous temple in a distant town. It was said that when people prayed at the temple, miracles happened to them. It was also said that the handicapped people who went there, could throw away their braces and crutches and walk freely. They were healed completely.

Father and son set out on a pilgrimage to the temple. They entered the shrine, and offered fervent prayers for the boy’s leg to be healed. Suddenly, the boy sensed a wonderful feeling of warmth within his heart. He felt that he had been truly healed. He opened his eyes and rose to his feet. He glanced at his leg – but it was as withered as ever.

“It’s no use being here,” he said to his father. “Let us go. God has not heard our prayer.”

As he neared the temple gates, he had a wonderful sensation. He felt as if a great hand passed over him, and he cried out, “Father, Father! You were right! I am healed! I am healed!”

Startled, the father looked at his leg – and saw no sign of healing. The brace was very much in place.

“Father, God has not taken away the brace on my leg,” the son explained. “But He has taken away the brace on my mind! I no longer feel handicapped. I no longer feel an inferiority complex.”
