Maintaining balance in your life requires keeping your body healthy. I’m sure you’ve been bombarded, with the rest of modern society, on tips for eating healthily, maintaining a healthy weight, and getting fit. With all the information already out there, you’re likely to be bored with just another blog about “losing weight” or “getting fit.” Great! That’s not what this about.

Maintaining a healthy body does require proper nutrition & physical activity, but when this becomes your driving force, your mind & soul suffer, & you become out of balance. When your main focus in life is counting every single calorie, carb, & fat gram, and/or working out before, during, & after work or school, you’re taking so much time and energy away from the two other aspects of yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I truly believe in nutritious meal planning & being physically active, but moderation & balance are truly key.

Also, don’t forget the need to rest your body! This is vital in keeping your body healthy, & developing & maintaining balance in your life. Imagine your body as a car. Your car needs fuel and maintenance (food) to run (exercise) efficiently, but if you drive your car constantly without fuel, maintenance, & never stopping, it’ll eventually be “ragged out.” And to further use this illustration, your car needs the computer (brain) to run effectively, as well as a driver (soul) to ensure it gets where it needs to go & to know when something’s not quite right. The mind, body, & soul are interdependent, and one is no greater or lesser than the other two. Future articles will assist you in your journey to a healthier body. Please read the next post, which addresses keeping your soul healthy.

Maintaining balance in your life requires keeping your mind healthy. How do you do this? Taking care of your mind, or keeping it healthy, is like taking care of anything else in your body. You need to use it, be mindful of thoughts you allow to flow through, and by letting it rest. Your mind is a powerful thing, and too much or too little focus on the mind can throw your life out of balance. Continue reading Mind (1 min read)

You may have heard the success stories about people earning a 6  figure salary by setting up a Forever Living Business and working part time hours either alongside their full time jobs or as a main source of income. I was certainly inspired by the countless plethora of Youtube videos that indicated quite aggressively, the promise of financial freedom, 5 Star holidays, a car…blah blah blah.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”- Audrey Hepburn

When we talk about broken or failed relationships, what comes to mind first is that someone probably cheated. And then there are the other reasons such as incompatibility or irreconcilable differences; physical or verbal abuse; possessiveness, jealousy, & trust-issues that lead to fighting, etc. Continue reading Relationship Drifts (1 min read)

A simple action that changes your life.

We’re bound to earth by the laws of physics. When we jump, we defy these laws, even if just for second.

Jumping also is an amazing exercise. You concentrate energy into your muscles, load them up and then — BAM! — in less than a second, it snaps and contracts, launching you into the air.

5 Simple Tips that Will Revolutionize Your Thoughts on Public Speaking (2 min read)

There are a very select few people that have absolutely no problems speaking in front of a crowd of people. One of the best speakers I have ever known, my dad, once told me, “It doesn’t matter how many times I have given the same speech in front of the same people, I will always have a butterfly in my stomach.” To this day that is something I think about every time I speak in front of any kind of crowd. You know what, that butterfly is totally ok. Check out our first tip!

1) Everyone is nervous!! So what!! Don’t let the nerves get to you. This is the most obvious tip that anyone could give you. You will then look at them and roll your eyes with the classic cliche of “Easier said than done.” I want you to take a look at your situation from a different point of view, though, every single person that is sitting there about to listen to you has and will have to speak in front of people at one point or another, and every single one of them will be full of the butterflies. Why does this even matter? They aren’t up here right now!  It means that they understand. They get it if you have a stumble here or there. You don’t have to be 100% perfect in every inflection and pronunciation. In fact, if you do stumble over a word, laugh about it! Being a real person makes you easier to listen to. Let’s be clear, though, you don’t have free reign to bumble through this speech, which leads me to my next point.

2) Be prepared. Stumbling through a speaking opportunity is the fastest way to lose your audience. They will spend the entire time you are on stage thinking about how you just can’t seem to get it together. The way to combat that problem is to make sure that whatever happens you can roll with the punches. By roll with the punches, I mean that if something were to change and throw you from your “scheduled speech” i.e. Someone has an important question that diverts the direction you were headed. If you know your material so well that even a screaming baby can’t throw you off your game, then you are ready to get on stage. The best way to be prepared is not to have everything written down word for word. This lends itself towards the stumble. If you are even slightly off with a pronunciation or misread one word you have written it can derail your flow and wreak havoc. However, if you have main points written down and you have prepared and studied your subject, then whatever happens in front of you, it can be taken in stride and your speech is like a single flowing river.

3) Practice. You may be saying you just told me to be prepared! Practice and preparation are hands in hand, yes, but the act of practicing your speech is so integral that it deserves its own bullet point. More important then the act of practice is the method. As I have mentioned before knowing the speech word for word is going to cause stumbles and “um’s”. Practice doesn’t mean to read it 153 times. You need to be in front of people! Grab a spouse, a son, a daughter, even a stranger and deliver your speech to them. Be clear, though, you are not looking for feedback from them. YOU need to get used to being in front of people. Period. Doesn’t matter who. The feedback will come later in another point.

4) Get Feedback. You can’t have feedback from just anyone, though. That’s why we don’t want to hear the feedback that the stranger has to give. Let’s get our feedback from someone that we know will be totally honest. That knows the subject that you’ll be speaking on as well as anyone. You! We all have a smartphone or a webcam on a laptop easily at our disposal these days. Be sure to set it far enough away that you can see all that is around you as well because those hands you got moving all around need to be captured as well.

5) Be Yourself! This is the most important and also the hardest one to follow. Once on stage everyone wants to become this expert. Let me tell you something, experts are BORING!! No one wants to listen to someone drone on and on, but the guy or gal that everyone in the office knows and loves already, that person is way easier to listen too. You don’t have to be hilarious or crack jokes, (in fact I don’t recommend that) but if you are certain to be you, you relax and instantly become easier to listen and relate to.

These are just a few quick steps and there will be and are more tips on my blog at theartofbeingunforgettable.wordpress.com.
