Are You Asking Yourself The Right Questions?

its up to you
We all have heard the famous quote attributed to Albert Einstein that reads,
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different.”
You don’t arrive at the destination of your dreams because of one big choice. It happens as a result of the small choices you make all day long. Asking yourself powerful qestions give you the power to make the higher choice for yourself at every moment of your life. If that’s not what you’re after – if you want to indulge in ‘poor me,’ if you’re committed to being a victim and not going for all that you desire, then don’t use these questions. But if you are committed to being the responsible creator of your reality, to being the best ‘you’ that you can be, and to having your life make a difference, these questions will show you the way.
Here are some questions that will show you the way:
Will this choice propel me toward an inspiring future or will it keep me stuck in the past?
Will this choice bring me long-term fulfillment or will it bring me short-term gratification?
Am I standing in my power or am I trying to please another?
Am I looking for what’s right or am I looking for what’s wrong?
Will this choice add to my life force or will it rob me of my energy?
Will I use this situation as a catalyst to grow and evolve or will I use it to beat myself up?
Does this choice empower me or does it disempower me?
Is this an act of self-love or is it an act of self-sabotage?
Is this an act of faith or is it an act of fear?
Am I choosing from my divinity or am I choosing from my humanity?
Once I started asking myself these powerful questions when making choices, my life changed. Start asking yourself these questions today!

TGIT-Great News For Red Wine Drinkers and Scandal Fans

red wine

TGIT red wine drinkers: I have scandalous news. A new study says that drinking a glass of wine can equate to an hour of exercise.   Ok before you run out to the Wine & Spirits there’s more! I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that the study that was  published in Journal of Physiology a few months ago annonced that resveratrol, a natural compound found in certain fruits, nuts, and …….red wine, could actually “enhance exercise training and performance.” There is still more. The principal investigator for the study, mentions that resveratrol can also offer the same benefits working out does!

The  bad news is if the wine is not red  it doesn’t count AND  and it only works with one glass — so gulping  a bottle a week doesn’t equal  four to six gym sessions. Don’t let that get you down.

There are plenty other benefits to that glass of wine.  We’re all aware that wine is one of the healthier choices you can make when consuming alcohol, but just how healthy is it?

Wine is said to be the most calorie friendly alcoholic beverages,  adding up to only 100 calories in a typical five-ounce glass. Wine also contains antioxidants and can help prevent heart disease, as well as lower bad cholesterol and the formation of blood clots. Another bonus? Apparently red wine acts as a mouthwash because the flavan-3-ols in it can reduce “bad bacteria” found in your mouth. I’ll just give all of the Olivia Popes out there another moment to continue rejoicing!

Other than the fact that red wine still qualifies as an alcoholic beverage, which isn’t exactly the greatest thing you can put into your body, it’s still good to know that indulging in a little red vino can do more than just make you tipsy faster.  Its an hour’s worth of cardio!  So grab your glasses and work out tonight with the Gladiators!
