5 Tips To A Tighter Body Without Killing Yourself

Change Your Lifestyle And Lose Weight 

These days, people who want to shed unwanted pounds aren’t committing to ambitious workouts or restrictive diets. Lifestyle is the new watchword.

Have you been counting your calories, but not seeing results that make the effort worthwhile?

Perhaps you spend so many hours in a gym that you could drop on the spot. Most of all, stop fretting over watching your weight refuse to budge despite all the dietary changes you make and all the exercise you do.

Most people try fad diets at one time or another, even though they do not produce the desired results. The idea that exercising will magically burn fat away is gradually fading, despite the

The idea that exercising will magically burn fat away is gradually fading despite the fact that, exercise is necessary for maintaining your health. Many studies have shown that the best way to lose weight is making a major change in lifestyle.

A lot of people that have tried doing this can lose 60 or more pounds and are able to keep that weight away as well.

This is the way they did it.

1. Eating sensibly.

Calories are really not that hard to understand. It all comes down to eating less than you are using. If you hate counting calories, make healthier food choices so that you don’t have to.

Don’t eat portions that are too large and start to put lean proteins, vegetables, whole grains, and also fruits into what you eat each day.

Our NatraLife Get Lean! program can provide you with the guidance that you need as well as a community of like-minded individuals that will assist you in achieving your goals.

Check out my NatraLife site here and then drop me an email with your mailing address, and I’ll mail you a FREE booklet explaining the program with recipes, eating plan, and weight loss tips – 24 pages in all including a Q&A section. 

2. Exercise realistically

It is surprising to those who work extra hard in the gym how people who walk only an hour a day are able to lose more weight than them. 

This is what you should know. They do not become members of the gym, buy expensive equipment or engage in reps that are painful. They walk consistently, every day and it adds up to success.

In fact, I gave up my gym membership a few years back when I was diagnosed with A-Fib…probably not a good move at the time as I ballooned up to 222 pounds. At 5′ 10″, that gave me a body mass index that put me into the obese category. Walking was difficult without stopping for breath.

I started the NatraLife Get Lean! program as of the date of this writing just about 30 days ago after reading several articles on the dangers of “belly fat” – at 74 years of age, I am not finished doing what I need to do – and have dropped 16 pounds to date and more importantly, am showing significant loss of belly fat.

Now at my age, my metabolism has slowed, but you know what? I am proof that you are never too old to change. Imagine the results if I was younger! Oh, and guess what? For exercise, all I do is walk…but I do it every day!

3. Get yourself supported.

Having others around who are supportive is one of the keys to losing weight.        

If you start to surround yourself with those that always want to eat junk and don’t like to care for their weight at all then you are more likely not to do well with your weight loss.

4) Sleep better.

If you do not get the sleep your body needs, then your body will not produce enough insulin. Without the right levels of insulin, your body cannot keep your appetite under control.

If you are not getting enough sleep, you are more than likely going to make very bad decisions when it comes to your daily diet. Insulin regulates your metabolism, so when you get proper sleep you also have the energy to stick to your daily exercise routine.

5. Keeping track of how things are going. 

An effective way to reach your weight loss objectives, one of the most notable known to science, is to keep a personal journal. 

When you keep track of what you eat and how often you exercise, it can help you to have more success overall. The habit of documenting progress, keeps you constantly in check with your daily habits, clearly showing what works for you, and what definitely does not work. 

Keeping track of your progress can also help you to note problem times or other negative influences on your progress. If you are not sure about the essential value related to writing down what you consume, be mindful that individuals who have recorded their eating habits regularly, lose twice the amount of weight compared to people who don’t. Try the journal for a while, and see the truth about your eating habits.

Try the journal for a while, and see the truth about your eating habits.

A change in lifestyle isn’t just about losing weight – it’s about living longer, happier, and better lives. These benefits are what you should be striving for. If you are truly serious about losing weight, you need to realize that fad diets and strange workout routines are not the way to go. The best and most realistic way to achieve and maintain your goal weight is through making significant changes to your entire lifestyle.

The Medicine of Chuckles!

Have you heard that laughter is good for the soul? Well, it turns out that it is good for the heart too!

A study inside the journal of Heart magazine discovered that LAUGHTER truly may be the best medicine! The study showed that people who watched a funny film showed about the identical cardiovascular positive aspects as an individual jogging.

Now I, nor any other reasonable person is about to recommend that you stop jogging or exercising and devote a lot more time sitting in front with the Television watching films, but the study reveals some interesting facts as to the added benefits that come from laughter.

Actually, there are several research findings linking damaging feelings, for instance, anger, worry, hostility and depression to poorer overall health.

Unfortunately, there are not as many studies displaying the positive aspects to those persons that have a happier outlook.

The key point is the fact that feelings trigger several hormones and neurotransmitters (brain messengers) which have an effect on our wellness.

Men and women who go through the day with damaging feelings like worry, fear, anxiousness and hostility, produce additional pressure hormones and neurotransmitters that relate to poorer overall health, as opposed to men and women who walk around happy and smiling. The content folks don’t have as many strain hormones running through their bodies!

The takeaway is basic, smile more!

Never worry about the petty stuff, enjoy life!

Scripture teaches to not worry about tomorrow…when there is certainly enough to worry about in the present. Besides, 90% of the things we are concerned about and worry about today, never happen!

Did You know?

Your Adrenal Glands make upwards to 50 kinds of hormones.

Don’t cook foods in plastic containers in microwave ovens…this could release poisonous ‘Dioxins’ into your foods. Use glass or ceramic containers.
Cover foods having a paper towel, instead of plastic wraps!

Several headaches are triggered by dehydration.

Prayer & meditation can reduce blood pressure. (I love to stand in the shower for quick meditation- I use deep breathing exercises and have the warm water relax me as I deep breath and exhale for 20 repetitions).

It is not really important what you do as long as you can go to that “happy” place we all have!

 

So, my friends, I hope you enjoyed these brief comments. Now enjoy life and keep smiling!

Activate Your Fat Burning Capacity

How you can Get the Weight Off… and Keep It Off!

One particular thing we know for certain is the fact that for the last 30-plus years, we’ve become far more overweight and more men and women are struggling with diabetes, including our little ones.

This leads me towards the conclusion that a lot of the guidance we’ve been provided might not be complete.

Even so, our obesity dilemma is greater than just diet regime and physical exercise. Folks have already been dieting and exercising for years and are still struggling with their weight, which tells us there is certainly another piece to the puzzle.

The often-overlooked missing ingredient is Stress as well as the impact it has on our fat-burning hormones.

Stress has grown to be the number-one dilemma right here in America, and a lot of men and women consider themselves to be under excessive stress. Our lives have grown to be so fast-paced, so go-go, with so little time for you to unwind and take pleasure in life, and all of this is due to the fact we’ve all become so over-booked.

Stress is actually a large part of this entire weight reduction issue due to the hormones it produces…Stress produces fat STORING hormones!

To successfully shed weight and hold it off, you must eat correct and workout, but you also need to regulate those hormones, so your metabolism will function the way it was created to. Once you do that, you restore regular metabolic function, which puts you back inside the ‘fat-burning zone’ — then the body will begin actually burning those undesirable pounds!

Listed here are several easy steps to get your hormones back in balance…

1. Help adrenal function by utilizing supplements that include ingredients like; Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, Ginseng, L-Theanine, Fenugreek, Gymnema Sylvestre and vitamins and minerals like B-Complex, C, Zinc, Manganese, Chromium, Calcium, and Magnesium.

Adrenal-Fuel is actually a fantastic choice for STRESS Recovery. Learn more about this fantastic product at FELIXHEALTH.

2. Stabilize blood sugar and fight cravings by consuming low-glycemic foods. These consist of things like meats, fish, poultry and lean green vegetables. A NatraLife Super Food Smoothie (LEARN MORE) can make a fast & healthy meal replacement.

3. An irritated digestive system is actually an enormous stressor! Improve the health of your digestive tract by utilizing good digestive enzymes and probiotics. NatraLife Super Foods Blend and Organic Aloe Vera Concentrate can also help.

If you are experiencing chronic digestive problems, such as indigestion, bloating and gas, try to limit or avoid common food allergens, such as dairy, coffee, soy, and sometimes wheat and corn products. Combine foods properly — Don’t consume foods that include protein and sugar or starches within the same meal…for example, meat & potato, high-protein meal followed by dessert, protein shake with fruit added, ice cream, etc.

4. Take time for you to loosen up and reflect on positive things! Do 3-5 minutes of deep breathing, pray, or take a walk. This step alone can dramatically reduce stress hormone levels!

Give these tips a try for just 30 days…you will be pleasantly surprised!

Secret Video of how to tell if your Produce is Organic or GMO – http://goo.gl/yUz14K

Organic produce is a reliable source of non-genetically modified fruits and vegetables.

As you’re shopping in the supermarket look for the stickers on fruits and vegetables.

If there are five numbers in the PLU code and the number starts with an eight, this tells you that this is a genetically modified fruit or vegetable.

If there are five numbers in the PLU code and the number starts with a nine this lets you know that the produce was grown organically and is not genetically modified.

Building a Business – So Much To Do, So Little Time

Considering an adventure into the realm of online marketing to bring in a few extra dollars, or even better, to build a successful venture that will allow you to retire from the 9 to 5 rat race? Well with any venture, planning is necessary, especially a business venture.

In one of my former lives as an auditor, I found that the best approach to understanding a business process was to lay out a diagram. a flowchart. This kind of visual both aided understanding of the flow of the business and would later serve as a reference in presentations. Taking the time to properly lay out a schematic saved countless hours of retracing steps.

A business process is a collection of activities that create a product or service within an organization. These activities are also related as they are the steps or activities that support the same end goal the same result.

The focus of this article is to show how information systems can assist in business processes and then I will introduce you to a ready-made, or “turnkey” process that will enable you to hit the ground running!

If you are the type that just can’t wait, run on ahead and check out the “turnkey” system that we have developed for you:

TRY THE SHORTCUT

If you are still reading…

A typical business, even a small one, will usually have many different processes some are related directly to creating the product or service and some support the organization.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the example above, within the accounting functional area, a business may have a process for accounts payable accounts receivable a general ledger. In the marketing area managing customer service and so on.

It doesn’t take too much imagination to see that information systems can be a very important part in all of the processes listed here by making a business more efficient and helping a business create a better product.

As you might imagine some business processes could be very complex and trying to explain the process to a new member might be very difficult if you just gave them a list of the different activities.

One way we make processes easier to understand is by creating a visual map of the process we call that either a process model or a process flowchart.

This slide shows a flowchart of an online software purchase.

 

It’s not too difficult to see how the process works.

It still uses the same symbols that we saw in the other flowchart the difference is a lane for each actor or role within the process.

Not only do we see the process activities themselves but we see who is responsible for or who performs each activity.

Many software applications give you the ability to create flow charts.

For example, Microsoft Word Excel PowerPoint in the insert shapes area you’ll have the flowchart symbols you can use to create a basic flow chart.

 

Although it’s not included with your standard Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visio is a great tool for creating flow charts and charting business processes and it even has some templates that you can start with and then modify as you need.

There’s another set of symbols you might consider when mapping or creating a flowchart of a business process. These symbols are called business process modeling notation symbols.

You can find these symbols in Visio but you will not be able to find them and Microsoft Word or Excel. However, if you’re charting a very complex process this method actually can be very useful.

So why do we create flow charts and use business process modeling? I’ve already mentioned one reason.

It helps simplify very complex processes.

It makes them easier to grasp in a visual format.

Another important reason to create a flow chart is to help identify areas that can be improved in the process. The flowchart might reveal extra steps or bottlenecks that can be eliminated.

When redesigning or improving a process creating a flowchart of the current and the proposed process is a great way to compare the two and show how the revised process can save time money or improve efficiency in some way.

And this is what the folk at Empower Network have done in revamping the program. David Wood and Company have taken the complexities of online marketing and developed for you and me a process that not only is manageable from the get-go but also can get you setup and running in a few hours.

The product is provided, the tools and know-how are provided, and more importantly, a culture of caring is nurtured to ensure your success.

So you can go it alone, build your system, build your process, and spend that most valuable of all commodities, time.

Or…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can decide to step into a system that has designed the process, documented the system flows, and worked to put you years ahead of building an online business from the ground up:

Personalize Experiences with Digital Marketing (6 of 11)

Digital marketing case studies show that personalization can be one of the most effective ways to convert browsers into buyers and buyers into loyal customers who will be eager to purchase more products and services from you. There are many personalization tools available these days, but many of them can be quite expensive to use. So what’s a new online business owner to do?

The answer is to start with what works. If you are not doing it already, try it and you should soon start to see results.

 

Cater with Content

The first way to get the attention of your target audience is to pay attention to them. Go to their favorite sites, blogs, networks, forums, groups, and more. What are they complaining about? What issues do they have? Create content that will solve their problems.

 

Compare with Competitors

Read reviews online about top products in your niche, similar to ones you would like to sell. What are your target customers buying, how much are they paying for them, and what are they praising or complaining about? What suggestions do they make as to how the product could be better?

 

Get Them on Your Lists

You will have to work very hard to get traffic to your site. Don’t just let them click in once, then wander away forever. Instead, offer them a free special report or e-course related to your niche. When you create your emails, personalize them using the automated features you will find at sites such as AWeber.

  Try AWeber free for 30 days! – AWeber Communications 

Also, be sure to offer separate lists for prospects, customers, and for those who are coming to you from other sources, such as those signing up through a joint venture partnership.

The email addresses you collect from your partner’s marketing list will be yours to do with as you choose, but their behavior is likely to be very different from your loyal followers who have had more time to get to know you (at least initially).

This being the case, your first emails should not be hard sells, but more of relationship-building emails.

Pick up your FREE Guide to Growing Your Business from Aweber here.

When they buy, use automation to move them to a customer list. In this way, you won’t be treating everyone the same. If they have already bought product X, for example, it’s a waste of time to keep sending emails about it. Instead, offer them related products Y and Z.

 

Learn through Surveys

 6c-survey

People love to give their opinions.

Ask your customers from time to time what products or services they would be most interested. Take action to deliver their #1 choice.

This will show you are a company who cares.

                   You will also have a built-in customer base willing to buy when you launch.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

  

Don’t Drive All of Your Marketing Traffic to Your Home Page

One of the most important skills to master as a digital marketer is tracking and testing. That is, you create and launch a promotion, track the results, and test to try to improve them. This can be time-consuming if you are using your home page as the destination URL for each promotion.

Create one landing page for your customers, then duplicate it for your Facebook, Twitter, and other marketing initiatives. Create separate pages for free versus paid ads at these sites.

Match the content on the page to what you published on the network. Create slightly different URLs, and you will be able to track your results fast and see what is working best.

These simple ways of personalizing can lead to faster relationship building, for more profits.

More on relationship building next time.

Can’t Pay Taxes On Time? Here Are Five Tips

As entrepreneurs, we can get busy and the days can fly by as we engage in the activities that we love. If you are like me, you don’t like to stop and spend time on something as mundane as taxes but I have convinced myself that I should consider the chunk of money that it takes from earnings and pay the appropriate attention to it.

After all, it is the taxpayers responsibility to ensure that taxes are neither overpaid or underpaid.

Now the smart thing for entrepreneurs to do is to project their income and pay the quarterly installments required by the IRS. This way when the deadline comes around, you are not caught with your pants down.  

If you are this squared away, then kudos! If not, this article is for you. 

 The IRS urges you to file on time even if you can’t pay what you owe. This saves you from potentially paying a penalty for a late-filed return.

Here is what to do if you can’t pay all your taxes by the due date.

 

 2016-03-25_16-23-55
 
1. File on time and pay as much as you can. You can pay online, by phone, or by check or money order. Visit IRS.gov for electronic payment options.

 2. Get a loan or use a credit card to pay your tax. The interest and fees charged by a bank or credit card company may be less than IRS interest and penalties. For credit card options, see IRS.gov.

 3. Use the Online Payment Agreement tool. You don’t need to wait for IRS to send you a bill before you ask for a payment plan. The best way is to use the Online Payment Agreement tool on IRS.gov.

You can also file Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request, with your tax return. You can even set up a direct debit agreement. With this type of payment plan, you won’t have to write a check and mail it on time each month.

 4. Don’t ignore a tax bill. If you get a bill, don’t ignore it. The IRS may take collection action if you ignore the bill. Contact the IRS right away to talk about your options. If you are suffering financial hardship, the IRS will work with you.

 5. File to reconcile Advance Payments of the Premium Tax Credit. You must file a tax return and submit Form 8962 to reconcile advance payments of the premium tax credit with the actual premium tax credit to which you are entitled.

You will need Form 1095-A from the Marketplace to complete Form 8962. Failure to reconcile your advance payments of the premium tax credit on Form 8962 may make you ineligible to receive future advance payments.

 

***

 

Remember to file on time. Pay as much as you can by the tax deadline and pay the rest as soon as you can. Find out more about the IRS collection process on IRS.gov. Also check out IRSVideos.gov/OweTaxes.
Each and every taxpayer has a set of fundamental rights they should be aware of when dealing with the IRS. These are your Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Explore your rights and our obligations to protect them on IRS.gov.

Entertain with Videos as You Provide What Customers Want (5 of 11)

 

In my last blog post, I talked about the importance of great visuals in marketing your business online and driving the kind of traffic you need to earn a steady stream of income.

At the end, I mentioned the importance of video in a modern marketing mix. Today I want to talk a bit more about how to entertain with videos as you provide what customers want.

 

Infomercials

If you’ve ever seen an infomercial or purchased something as a result of watching one, you will get an idea of how powerful a selling tool it can be. You are educating and entertaining all at the same time.

The presenter usually shows a problem and offers a solution.

Or the infomercial might demonstrate the many uses of a convenient product most people would not want to miss out on because it would make their life so much easier. And they can get this all for only $19.99 – or buy two for the same price, just pay shipping and handling.

Sound familiar? TV infomercials all use the same pricing and formula because they have been proven to work.

You can create similar videos yourself for almost any product or service you are selling, demonstrating the features and benefits of the item. With computer screen capture programs like Camtasia, you can record how-to videos and demonstrations of software and more.

Don’t have an item that’s very visual? Interview experts, or get someone to interview you.

Don’t want to appear on screen? Create a great webinar, make it seem interactive with common questions and answers, and use it online to show your audience what you have to offer.

Now that you understand the essential principles of video as infomercials, no matter what their length, it’s time to create videos and upload them. The obvious place to start is YouTube, the #3 website in the world and a subsidiary of Google.

camera

YouTube

YouTube is not just a video sharing site these days – it is a massive search engine with ads.

It also works the other way. When Google delivers the top 10 or so items in relation to a keyword on their search engine results pages (SERPS), they will give preference to videos hosted at YouTube.

 

Vine.co

Twitter is become a popular social networking site which allows users to publish, or tweet, content that is no more than 140 characters long. Their sister site, Vine.co, is worth checking out because Vine is to video what Twitter is to marketing content.

You are allowed 6-second snippets only, enough to engage and entice your target audience. Teen sensation Hayes Grier has more than 4.3 million followers. The secret to success on all video sites is consistently posting high-quality, interesting content.

 

Streaming Video Apps

Two popular new apps that allow you to stream video live to your followers are Periscope and Meerkat. If you want to create buzz about a product, service or live event you are hosting, these are ideal.

 

Other Video Sharing Sites

Flickr and Instagram also allow short videos in addition to images. Build out your offerings with short, sharp, keyworded videos.

 

Facebook Video Ads

Facebook has always allowed videos, but their video ad opportunities are booming. I’ve had some good results with these, even higher converting than my ads with good images.

 

Google AdWords Video Ads

Google now allows video ads and will show them on their search engine results pages.

Start making your own videos and see what a difference they can make to your traffic and profits. And look out for my next post, in which I will discuss how to personalize your user’s experience through digital marketing.

See you in the next post!

To your Success,

Power Up Your Digital Marketing with Visuals (4 of 11)

 

In my last blog post, I talked about a number of ways to get short-term customers to become long-term clients. The difficulty is attracting the attention of your niche audience in the first place.

If you haven’t been paying enough attention to the visual aspects of your marketing, I want to review a few essentials that could help get you even more traffic and potential customers.

 

Supporting Images Everywhere

These days, a web page or blog post doesn’t really look complete without a supporting image to give the visitor to that page a quick glance at what the content will be about.

When I was studying communication in college, I learned the 100-70-50-30-10 rule. 100% of readers will look at the headlines and the pictures. Based on what they see, 70% of them will read the first paragraph of the article, 50% the second, 30% the third, and 10% the fourth. So you need to grab their attention as best you can right from the outset.

The same is true of digital content. If you’ve ever seen an image and/or headline that made you click over to another page, you’ll know what I mean. In fact, the entire trend of what is termed curated content is based on this principle.

 

Curated Content

Content curation is all about sorting through large amounts of niche-related content on the web and presenting the best posts in a meaningful and organized way. By curating content, you are offering readers more of what they are looking for, from top sites, quickly and easily.

Reddit and StumbleUpon will let you curate headlines and images, and share them on your social networks as well. On Reddit, you can search for specific types of content to curate, such as images and infographics. Curating will make your own site visually appealing without having to create everything from scratch.

 

Sharing on Social Media

Untitled design

Almost all of the main social networks allow images. It’s just a case of which networks make the images more prominent that others. Pinterest, for example, is dominated by images (or pins) that are pinned to a virtual pin board. Statistics show that the audience is around 75% female and 50% have bought something they saw on a board, at an average spend of around $45. If you’re looking to tap into this consumer demographic, start gathering your images.

Facebook encourage images; in fact, you must have an image to participate in their ad network. Google+ and Tumblr also allow for attractive images. Twitter has recently started permitting them as well though I find the interface a bit clunky. Don’t forget Snapchat and Instagram.

 

PowerPoint Presentations

Turn your PowerPoint presentations into shareable decks, jpgs and videos, all in minutes, with the Save As feature of your program. Upload your decks to SlideShare.net, now owned by LinkedIn, and see how it can boost your traffic. Use the share buttons to spread the word, and the embed code to show the slideshow at your own site or blog.

 

Videos

Untitled design (1)

YouTube is the #3 website in the world. Video is a golden marketing opportunity. Camera shy? Save your decks as videos and upload them to YouTube. Then use the embed code to show the videos on your site without having to worry about them taking up large amounts of storage space. I will discuss video in more detail in my next post.

Add visuals to your digital marketing mix and see what a difference they can make to your traffic and profits.

 

To your success!
