Why Should I Exercise?
Is your day non-stop? Are you always on the move? No time to exercise or relax? Exercising will give you more energy and time.
Recent studies suggest that overweight is more often caused by the lack of exercise than overeating. From age 20 on, most Americans show signs of obesity, gaining ½ to 1 ½ pounds per year, mostly in fat, primarily because of too little exercise. Your enemy is the television, sofa, and car.
Here are eight reasons and benefits to show you how exercise can help you.
1. Exercisers pay half as much in medical bills each year as those who don’t exercise, and exercisers only have one-third the number of sick days.
2. Exercise enables your cardio-respiratory system to function more efficiently as your lungs take in more air and deliver more oxygen to the tissues, and your heart pumps more blood with each contraction and delivers more oxygen to your muscles. It helps to fight stress.
3. Regular aerobic training lowers blood pressure, reduces the chances of a stroke.
4. Exercise increases muscle strength.
5. If you’re under stress or suffer from insomnia, exercise can help bring relief.
6. Regular exercise can slow most symptoms of aging such as; fat accumulation, weakened muscles, reduced balance, flexibility, agility, and reaction time.
7. Many doctors prescribe exercise for some types of depression. The body hormone, beta-endorphin, secreted increased amounts during exercise, is a natural euphoric or antidepressant, which may account for “Runner’s High”.
8. Exercise will make you look and feel better—an irresistible appeal to your vanity and an excellent argument to exercise regularly.
Exercising on a regular basis promotes efficient breathing, relieves tension, increases circulation, lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and keeps you more alert. An appropriate exercise program should include exercises for strength (machines & weight training), endurance (aerobics), and flexibility (calisthenics & yoga).

1. Practice control.
When angry, don't snap at anyone. Never throw a tantrum. Stay calm and collected. Be adult enough to take control of the situation and transform your anger into something more productive and passive. As soon as people think your anger goes to volcanic proportions easily, they will find it hard to come to you.
2. Keep nurturing your relationships.
Your relationship with your family, friends and significant others is too precious that you must not neglect it whatever happens. Go out and have fun with them. Do things together. Happiness will never fly from your side as long as the people who matter the most are close to you.
In the end, using people for self-empowerment means becoming a better and more lovable person. It's a win-win situation: the people know they can turn to you anytime and vice versa.

Light is all around you. You give and receive light. You are the light! Without light, there would be no life.
Your face is no exception. Your face reflects and responds to light.
The way it reflects light reveals a lot about you, and the way each facial feature reflects or responds to the light.
An example would be a person with very deep set eyes. Trying cupping your hands around the eyes as if you were protecting them from the light (the sun). Deep set eyes are a metaphor for protecting or guarding yourself as if backed into a cave. You may look relaxed, but you are constantly analyzing your outer world to protect your inner self.
Opposed to that, are eyes that protrude out (convex) or bulge out into the light (Susan Sarandon). You want to be included. You want to get involved, participate in everything, and you may feel left out if you’re not included.
Another example of response to light is very low heavy brow ridge. This feature of the forehead protects the brain. The forehead indicates your thought style. The brow ridge is like the bill of a cap, shading you from the light. You usually want to know the right way of doing things and like to follow set procedures and rules. You don’t use theoretical or philosophical approaches. You concrete plan of action.
Light does affect your face and its personality. Use it to your advantage and share your light and energy.
Want More Success?
5. Do random acts of kindness.
You don't have to do a John Rockefeller and blow your savings to charity. Little acts of kindness matters the most, and this can be as simple as giving someone a surprise you-take-care card or helping an elderly cross the street. When we were kindergarten students, kindness was taught to us and greatly practiced. Now is the time to revive the good deeds and this time, let them stay for good.
6. Contact your old friends.
Sad how some friendships are destined to goodbye, but thanks to technology, you can do something about it. Relive the good old days by flipping your yearbook and look for the great people whom you want to communicate with again. Adding these old friends to your roster of support peers will surely make you feel good all over.
7. Develop your personality.
Are you grouchy, grumpy and generally morose? Whoa, you can't go through life with those. Get rid of the bad traits and habits that perpetually hamper your growth. And really, who wants a grouchy friend anyway?
8. Be confident.
Be able to stride to the other corner of the room and introduce yourself to people with that winning smile of yours. Just remember: be confident, not arrogant.
