I believe it is a good practice to take note of the messages our bodies tell us after certain meals; both the good and the bad. Many people have mild sensitivities to ingredients and foods and never know it until they stop eating them. I learned I function much better with as little gluten in my diet as possible. I also found certain supplements that work well for areas I found I personally am lacking in.
The toxicity levels would do more harm than good. I found the rest of my required nutrients were attainable through diet alone and there was no need to supplement them.
As for hydration, take a look at how you sweat and the needed amounts of fluids for you and please, stay hydrated! Hydration is crucial to the proper function of organs and plays a firsthand role in performance for active people. As much as I preach natural healing and exploration of alternative medicine, convention healthcare still remains vital. Besides the need to go to the doctor when you hear a ligament snap or bone cracking, there also is the need for regular check-ups.
I also have the utmost respect for physicians trained to diagnose and treat illness and disease. Many of us suffer from chronic or potentially hazardous physical conditions that require monitoring, treatment or regular check-ups. Balance and utilizing the best of both worlds is the key. Stretch Humans have been stretching since the beginning of time. Yep, less than a few seconds old we are already stretching it out. It is well worth the research and time to find stretches that you will regularly do and stick with them!
The good thing about having all around daily stretches is it will become habitual. It will become contagious and you will notice others doing the same after awhile. Quoting Dov Seidman: Technology creates possibilities for new behaviors and experiences and connection, but it takes human beings to make the behaviors principled, the experiences meaningful and the connections deeper and rooted in shared values and aspirations.
Mastering Civility Civility costs nothing, and buys everything. Life is not scripted but we live it as though it were. In doing so, we create boxes that we operate within without ever really seeing the possibilities. And the problem is we think that is reality.

We are sabotaging ourselves. We act more like Coleridge and less like Keats. In I Am Keats , Asacker develops a metaphor for two worldviews as expressed through the poetry of two 19th century poets: Coleridge and Keats. Keats was passionate. He was moved by his senses and imagination. Capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries and doubts, he was uninhibited, open, and without judgment. Coleridge wants to predict an unknowable future. He is logic, order, control and progress. Coleridge wants you to live a productive and mistake-free life.
We never see the possibilities. Knowing is safe. And then, heaven forbid, we may have to change. Your old eyes adjust to a new world, and you become more creative and discerning. It is a philosophy says Asacker. Heart, then head. More at: IAmKeats. Surveys show that while some 40 percent of us make them, only 8 percent of us keep them. We may feel exhilarated when we set a big goal, but that soon gives way to anxiety.
There is a way to set goals and achieve them.
He did it by getting his pitchers to scale back their goals from lofty to bite-sized, from outcome to process. Instead, Rick refocused his pitchers on short-term, bite-sized process goals. He has to concentrate on hitting that glove. Hitting the glove on a high percentage of pitches is also the most probable path to achieving larger, outcome-oriented individual and team goals. How It Translates We can all learn to refocus on hitting that glove.
Whatever numbers they produced last year, they no longer matter. Time to prove yourself all over again. Many sales organizations try to motivate their sales forces with talk of raising the bar and hitting even bigger numbers. But that lofty-goal approach can trigger fear and worry instead.

Just like pitchers, salespeople know there are parts of the sales game beyond our control. By focusing on having daily, high-quality interactions with customers, I would make great progress toward putting a dent in my quota. Thinking about how many high-quality interactions I should have each day, I set the initial target at two.
Before you laugh and ask what I was going to do after lunch, consider the math. Two high-quality interactions per day are 10 per week, and 40 per month. As soon as I started focusing on my new simple, short-term, bite-sized process goal — two high-quality interactions with customers each day — I began thinking about my day differently.
I began prioritizing those two high-quality interactions with customers above everything else. I wasted less time. Focusing on that one small change brought about big results.
Gratitude encourages, clarifies, motivates, includes, and unifies. But gratitude is good for you too.

Gratitude puts you in the right mindset to lead. Gratitude and humility are interconnected. They reinforce each other. We alone are not responsible for who we are and what we do and that is the essence of leadership. We are never truly self-sufficient. In a practical way, gratitude provides guardrails in our life. Gratitude helps us to protect from ourselves. It is amazing how much gratitude plays into avoiding poor behavior and wrong thinking. Gratitude sets a boundary on our thoughts by making us mindful of others.
It helps us to avoid going where we should not go because we are more self-aware. Gratitude requires that we slow down and reflect.
Gratitude is the basis of emotional intelligence. It puts other people first. It says you know and you care. While empathy has been found to be essential to leadership, empathy is not empathy if it is silent. It must be expressed. Gratefulness helps to curb unproductive emotions such as frustration, resentment, and revenge. Studies have shown that it is an antidote to depression. It has the power to heal and move us forward.
It improves relationships and is a remedy to envy and greed. Instead of trying to strive with others we are thankful for what they do. Grateful people find more meaning in life and feel more connected to others. In these changing and uncertain times, gratitude is a leaders ally. Life is a continuum. Gratitude allows a leader to appreciate where they are and the resources they have at their disposal to face what life throws at them.
A habit of gratitude gives us perspective. More than a behavior it must come from the heart. It must be the mindset we lead from, manage from, and make decisions from. Gratefulness is grounded in reality because ultimately we must realize that everything good in our life is a gift.

Leadership begins and ends with gratefulness. The ability to produce at an elite level , in terms of both quality and speed. To produce tangible results that people value. Cal Newport bases his book Deep Work on the Deep Work Hypothesis : The ability to perform deep work is becoming increasingly rare at exactly the same time it is becoming increasingly valuable in our economy. As a consequence, the few who cultivate this skill, and then make it the core of their working life, will thrive. Learning is an act of deep work. An act of intense focus.
We are what we focus on and that is increasingly, the superficial.
