10 benefits of juicing..

When you eat food, the body tries to break it down as much as it can to find any nutrients in what you’ve chosen to eat.  Then it sends any nutrients to the 100 trillion cells that make up YOU and the cells use those ‘materials’ to regenerate – so, you literally are what you eat. 

When you’re juicing, the juicer extracts all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables for you, saving your body energy because it doesn’t have to break down all the food itself.  It can absorb the juice quickly and use its saved energy to heal and repair. 

If you asked me what was the one thing you could do to transform your health today, without a shadow of a doubt, I’d tell you to get a juicer.  The benefits of juicing are vast, but here are just 10 of my reasons why juicing is so good for you:

1.  Juicing is the fastest way of getting nutrition into the body.  Your juicer extracts the juice out of fruits and vegetables by separating it from the fibre.  So, you’re left with a juice and a tasteless pulp at the end (because all the goodness has been taken out).  The juice (full of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals) is very easy for your body to absorb, which means it gets to your cells quickly to nourish and repair them.

2.  Juicing is an easy way to eat enough vegetables.  Most of us struggle to chew our way through enough vegetables or we get stuck in the “same salad” rut. To combat the trend of ill-health in the western world, 10 servings of fruits and vegetables each day is what we need to aim for, and juicing is the ultimate head start.

3.  Juicing protects heat-sensitive nutrients and gives them to you.  The heating process in cooked and processed foods destroys the micronutrients in vegetables by changing their chemical composition.  Juicing raw vegetables harnesses their highest possible nutritional value.

4.  Juicing is the antidote to the modern, acidic diet.  When you feed your cells acid-forming foods like sugar, white flour, alcohol, coffee and meat, the blood becomes acidic and the body will start to struggle.  To balance the effects of an acidic diet, we need to significantly increase our intake of alkaline-rich foods (you guessed it) like vegetable juices.

5.  Juicing is a quick way to change how you feel.  One fresh juice, on an empty stomach, every day will start to give you more energy and improve your mood.  And the variety of minerals, vitamins, phytonutrients and enzymes protect your cells from disease and premature aging.

6.  Juicing helps you absorb more nutrients from vegetables.  Most of us have busy lives and our diets are ‘sub-optimal’, which for more and more of us means that our digestion has become impaired and it’s harder for the body to get the nutrients from our food.  Because the juicer does the hard work in separating the juice from the fibre, it’s far easier for the body to take in most of the nutrition.

7.  Juicing gets you more compliments.  You’re made up of around 100 trillion cells, so when you drink fresh juices and your cells become clearer and healthier, you’ll start to look different too.  Better skin, a ‘glow’, healthier hair, weight loss, better mood and more energy are some of the side effects!

8.  Juicing is a lifeline when you’re sick.  We’re surrounded by stress in our diets, environment and lifestyles, and juicing is one of the best ways to keep the immune system healthy and prevent illness.  There are thousands of testimonials for using juicing to u-turn chronic illnesses and conditions, from allergies to diseases.

9.  Juicing gives you that extra spring in your step, no matter how healthy you are.  Even if your diet is squeaky clean, nowadays where stress and environmental pollution are unavoidable, juicing makes sure your cells and blood are getting all they need to stay clean, nourished and hydrated.

10.  Juices are simple to make and kids enjoy them too.  All of us need excellent nutrition to be healthy, especially children as they grow at a rate of knots.  Having a juicer in the kitchen will let you introduce them to loads of raw fruits and vegetables, and in general if they’ve made it, kids will want to drink it..!

TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM FOR MAXIMUM PROTECTION AND IMMUNITY.

CS-Pouch-Set-Mangosteen-295x295

With the fast, worldwide reach of the media, it seems like every year we hear about a new illness outbreak looming on the horizon. In 2001 it was anthrax, 2002 was West Nile virus, 2003 was SARS, and in the following years it’s been H1N1 influenza, Ebola, and Zika viruses, among others. And now in 2020, we have a new coronavirus emerging.

The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus outbreak centered in Wuhan, China a “public health emergency of international concern,” with cases diagnosed as far as Europe, Thailand, Japan, and the US. This currently rivals the SARS coronavirus outbreak as far as total numbers, but the relative good news is that the fatality rate is much lower at 2 percent right now. Unfortunately, the media coverage and medical system response is enough to create panic for anyone.

Fortunately, all viruses share the same fundamental weaknesses, and there’s so much we can do to safely, easily, and naturally exploit these weaknesses to boost our immune system and protect ourselves from getting sick. For instance, did you know the magnesium chloride that is commonly used even in hospital ICU departments to save lives can also help fight off a virus? It’s true, and magnesium chloride is readily available for home use as well, so you don’t have to get sick to have access to it. And you can easily make it into a gel to apply to your children’s skin, so you don’t have to worry about getting them to take a pill.

With a basic understanding of how common viruses spread, some simple common sense precautions, and nutrients to boost your immune system, you can help protect your family from this public health menace.

click here for video. —->    COMMON SENSE GOES VIRAL

The first thing you need to know about fighting off viruses is that the earlier you start, the better your interventions work. Don’t wait until you have a fever and cough, start at the first sign of a sniffle or that feeling that you might be coming down with something. Pay attention to local media and area schools with what they announce is going around, and boost your immune system ahead of time so you never have to miss a day of work.

When you have to go out in public during a viral illness outbreak (like flu season) to run errands or attend events, make sure you understand how the virus is spread and take appropriate measures. Most viral illnesses that cause outbreaks are airborne. This means they spread through tiny droplets that come from coughs and sneezes, and can travel all the way across a crowded room through the air, landing on solid surfaces or being breathed in.

Door knobs, shopping carts, keypads at the checkout, chair arms, and even the items you touch while shopping can all have contaminated droplets on them. While you are out, take special care to not touch your face and wash your hands regularly, or at least once you leave the store. If you are immune-compromised, wear a mask.

School children should wash hands regularly throughout the day, and athletes who play sports like basketball need to be aware the germs can travel on the ball and they need to use a towel (not their hands) to wipe sweat from their faces, and wash their hands after playing.

THE SEEDS OF GREATNESS.

IMG_2391

If you can muster up the courage, energy, and persistence to plant the following seeds of greatness into your daily routines, you will be well on your way to becoming your greatness.

1 – Be Hungry For More

The first seed of greatness is that you must be hungry for more.  To truly tap into your greatness, you need to have some ambition.  At a minimum, you must be driven to be better than your former self.  If your greatness is the ever-expanding concept of your potential, you must have an internal urge to become your best.

As you change and grow as a person, your personal concept of greatness will change and grow as well.  And so long as you are hungry and driven to realize that better you, you place yourself on the path of greatness.

Be hungry to exceed your own expectations.

2 – Pay Attention

Your greatness is relevant to your imagination and your will to realize that ideal.

However; all too often we get so busy that we fail to recognize that we can become more.  We let life distract us.  And being distracted, stuck in the day-to-day monotony of making a living will stifle our ability to grow.

As such, a primary rule for unleashing our greatness is related to paying attention.  Essentially, we must become more aware, aware of ourselves, our trajectory, our lives, and our place in it.

And to become more aware, we must practice mindfulness.  So how does one practice mindfulness?  Well, mindfulness can be practiced by taking time each day to think about your life.   Some of the best ways to do this are the following:   mediation, long-walks, solitude, and going for a drive.  These are just a few ways that you can practice mindfulness, but it is by no means an exhaustive list.

3 – Strive Your Face Off

If you want to reach your greatness, you are going to have put in a lot of work.  You must plant the seed in your mind, that greatness requires effort.  Know, that your best self will not appear out of the blue just because you can imagine it.

Michael Jordan practiced 5 to 7 hours a day throughout his life.  He had to train and practice to show up as the person we’ve all come to admire.

Pablo Picasso painted 13,500 paintings, created at least 100,000 graphic prints and engravings,  produced 34,000 book illustrations, and  designed over 300 sculptures.

Prolific writer, Paulo Coelho has written 34 books since 1974, and wrote 4 books in one year alone.

Bringing your best self into the world will be no different.  It is going to take hours and hours of practice and tons of action and extra effort to make it happen.

Just like metal needs forging to be formed into a desired shape, so too will your greatness require concentrated effort to mold and make.

4 – Experiment

Habitual experimenting is a seed of greatness.  Some of the best inventions, recipes, and businesses have come to existence due to experimentation.

As you’ve probably already know, it took Thomas Edison over 1,000 experiments before he realized his vision of the working light bulb.

Henry Ford experimented with businesses and had 5 businesses fail before one took off.

Similarly, the delicious meals and drinks we get to enjoy at our favorite restaurants are the results of endless experimentation’s.

All in all, if we want to unleash our greatness, we must be willing to try new things, take different approaches, we must be willing to experiment.

5 – Quantity Vs. Quality

This rule is related to the last two, but it is different as it relates to not just taking action, but to ensuring that we are shipping or completing our creations.  It is necessary that you get your talents, ideas, and gifts out there to benefit the world.

To realize your greatness, you must get bits of it out into the world.  Not just for the sake of getting something out there, but in order that it may serve other people.

The more we can put out into the world, the better.  Sure, some of our ideas, creations, or whatever, may not be of the highest quality at first, but you can always improve quality over time.

The most important part is just getting your great stuff out there.  Because the quality of what you have to offer the world will improve as you provide it.  So start shipping your greatness today!

6 – Always Be Learning

A.B.LAlways Be Learning is the next seed of greatness.  One of the easiest ways to become more, is to learn more.  The more we learn, the larger our capacity for growth becomes.

Why you ask?  Well, recall my new and improved way of looking at greatness, which was “as a personalized reference point, limited only by the imagination and ambition of the person considering it.”  In doing so, notice the words “limited only by the imagination” of the person considering it.

When we learn more, our ability to comprehend and imagine what is possible grows, as such, continual learning is vital to reaching our greatness.

7 – Time Travel

The last seed of greatness, Time Travel.  If you time travel, you will position yourself to realize more of your greatness.  Of course, I am not talking about actual time travel here, (which would be cool) but rather, I am talking about mental time travel.

In other words, time travel as it relates to our ability to look forward into the future using our imagination.

To time travel in this sense, try to envision yourself as the greatest at what you have a passion for doing.  Try to envision the best version of yourself, or your ideal self.

When you do this, you’ll be stretching your mind and creating a void to be filled in by action. The action that is necessary for building the foundation that your future greatest self will soon rest upon.

Time travel in this sense can also help you make those big life altering decisions easier.  Jeff Bezos once mentioned a form of mental time travel he used to tap his greatness, but he called it a ‘regret minimization framework.’

In his example, he projected himself forward to the age of 80 and asked himself a series of questions at that point, on what he would or wouldn’t regret.  The answers that came to him are what propelled him to act on those ideas that were most aligned with his greatness.

And if you know anything about Jeff Bezos, you’ll know he made the right choice.  A choice that unleashed a multi-billion-dollar business empire.

So, if you want to fortify your capacity for greatness, close your eyes and take a leap into your imagined future.

Conclusion

To live one’s greatest life….to achieve one’s greatness, a lot of hard work will be involved, a lot of discipline as well.  Determination is going to be needed, you will without a doubt, need to tap new levels of courage.

Failure will happen, and you’ll have to show some serious resolve!   But, if you’ll simply start sowing your seeds of greatness, everything will change for you.

When you begin baking these 7 Seeds of Greatness into your pursuits, you will be poised to unleash your greatness, and with that, your amazing future.

Till next time…

You Should Never Give Up On Your Dreams No Matter What!

images-5

There comes a time in most entrepreneurs’ lives when the challenges seem overwhelming. You’ve suffered consecutive setbacks and sometimes, you seriously consider throwing in the towel.

You question yourself. Maybe you don’t have what it takes after all? Maybe your breakthrough idea just isn’t realistic? Maybe you should quit now, rather than continue to make a fool of yourself. Self-doubt leeches onto your heart and soul, and despair begins to take over.

It happens all the time, but I’m here to tell you why you should never ever give up on your dreams. Consider these six reasons:

1. What’s the alternative?

6927950_821e4

If you give up now, what are your options? Where will you be in life? Adrift? Aimless? Imagine how that will make you feel. Perhaps there’s a particular product or service you’ve launched that is plainly not going to be “the one” that leads you to extreme success. Regard it as nothing more than a detour on your journey to success.

We all get sidetracked from time to time and, although you probably can’t identify a reason why right now, there’s probably a good reason Opportunity #1 didn’t work out. But, once Opportunity #10 or Opportunity #20 proves successful, you’ll realize why. Consider the billionaire author, J.K. Rowling, who created the “Harry Potter” series. Her idea was rejected 12 times before someone finally gave her a chance. Ultimately, perseverance paid.

2. Mistakes happen.

 

There’s not a straight line to success. You’re going to hit bumps in the road that will feel like mountains. But, you can get over them. In fact, making mistakes is necessary to creating a successful company. If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not experimenting. You’re not trying new approaches. You’re not going anywhere. They key thing is to make sure that you learn from the mistakes.

We’ve all heard stories about famous figures who have failed numerous times. Abraham Lincoln, for one, failed to win several positions before becoming president of the United States. Another example, Walt Disney, had to close businesses en route to worldwide success.

And, just last year, while most Americans were relaxing on Labor Day, 64-year-old Diana Nyad became the first person to swim the shark-invested waters between Cuba and Key West — some 110 miles —without a cage for protection. She succeeded after her fifth attempt in 35 years but says she learned something new from each of her failed efforts. Can you imagine what it takes to make that physical and mental journey? Failure is a necessary part of the journey, but it’s never the end until you decide to quit.

3. You need passion in your life.

47844-1dn_e5ugnhfl3v7j8jd8jkw

If you give up on your dreams, you’re living a life unfulfilled. I can’t imagine not being passionate about something. Do you really believe you can build a large company and help tens of thousands of people if you have a wishy-washy approach and don’t feel strongly about your personal endeavors? If you don’t have a mission — if you don’t have a purpose — are you wasting potential? Live life with purpose and you will never be bored. Absolute conviction is everything.

4. Anything can happen.

Untitled

Don’t give up today because the breakthrough you need might happen tomorrow. All of the hard work you invest in yourself will pay off in the long run. It may well be that you’re running in a marathon despite the fact that you were only expecting a short sprint. If you’re at the point of giving up, give it another shot. “Hail Mary’s” exist for this. And then, repeat this every day.

5. The joy of success.

image of friends

Most of all, don’t surrender your precious dreams, because one day, you will achieve them. And, when you do, the ecstasy will make all of the agony so worthwhile. Imagine being able to celebrate with your family and friends who have been rooting for you — think about the pleasure you will all feel.

Crossing the finishing line and realizing that you completed your goal will provide for an indescribable sense of accomplishment. So, go for it and don’t quit because you certainly don’t want to miss out on the experience of savoring the success.

6. Proving them wrong.

Haters-gonna-hate-chrissystyles1-37246818-469-353

Last, but not least, don’t give the naysayers the satisfaction of seeing you give up on your dreams! There’s nothing wrong with wanting to prove them wrong. It’s quite common to have dream-stealers infiltrate your life. It might be colleagues or business acquaintances or even (sadly) family and friends. They are negative influences who sow seeds of doubt.

I’ll never forget when I was trying to raise capital for my previous business, BlueLithium. There was a general partner of a big firm who lectured me for 10 minutes and said, “Your chances of success are pretty much zero.” Of course, that only invigorated my drive; I can’t help but wonder how he felt when I sold the company for $300 million a year later — I was delighted to prove him wrong. Cheers to those who doubted you because eventually, they will want to be part of your team.

Dreams are essential for an entrepreneur, and with determination, you will achieve them. The road is never an easy one, but it’s absolutely worth it. Your dreams are only awake if you are.
