Last night I told my mom. when she said she was grateful 2019 was almost over, there were good things which happened in 2019.
Be grateful for the good things in 2019 and leave behind the rest.
I say again: BE GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD THINGS IN 2019 AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND.
Going further, be grateful for the lessons learned from the bad things that happened in 2019.
Overall, move in 2020 with a grateful heart. Forgive the events, people, and perhaps most importantly, yourself. Gratitude for the what was and gratitude for what will be. This is the best way to progress into the next decade.
I end with my favorite Scripture. Philippians 4:4-9:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
According to me ( based on present day life style ) you are wasting part of your life if you are doing these things.
You are always on phone,texting or browsing while at dinner or in the rest room,even during meetings.
90% of the day you are always complaining,be your job,love affair,family,friends and my list can be never ending.
You believe in ‘Fairy tales’,which exists in movies and stories.
You are stuck with past.You continue to regret your past and forget to move on and look for change in your life pattern
You give least importance to maintaining your health,be food habits or exercises.
You do not plan.
You watch tv or pornography or play video games all the time.
you have addictions like alcohol,drugs or smoking.
You go on grumbling about your hurt feelings.
you are busy gossiping and lying almost all the time.
You are judging all the time someones way of life. ( Irony here !….this includes me here because I am making a list based on my thinking that you are wasting your day and life ! )
“A great chunk of our lives is wasted on thoughts that bring nothing. We all think about something but, in the end, we only close the day thinking a lot and doing nothing but little.” Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
When diet is wrong,Medicine is of no use .When Diet is correct, there is no need of Medicine.
But sadly, many times we love to over eat, eat wrong food,and express lack of time for daily exercises. Many other excuses are readily available.
Some of my friends who are diabetic,regularly eat sweets ( which is forbidden),and they come up with statements saying that their sugar is under control since they take their diabetic medicines regularly ,as if the diabetic medicines give them the license to over eat the sweets.
Some other friends with Hypertension ( High blood Pressure ) eat food rich in salt, like pickles,salt laced chips etc.( salt is restricted for hypertensive patients).
They happily tell me that they are care free since medicines they take to control the BP, will also take care of their salt in the food.
What is your type ? Do You eat food and medicine also like my friends ?
If you ask me, yes,I find many times difficult to resist the food,over eat some times and take pancreatic enzyme tablets for better digestion,whenever I felt I overindulged.
Every year, on May 31, WHO and partners around the world celebrate World No-Tobacco Day, dedicated to highlight the health risks associated with the consumption of tobacco and promote effective policies to reduce consumption.
The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.
As you notice,all the three person are enjoying smoking,and on the left side one can see the notice stuck ( local language ), ironically telling that the area is prohibited from smoking and offenders will be punished !!
Time for some humor
“I know that every cigarette I smoke takes five minutes off my life, but it takes ten minutes to smoke it… that’s a five-minute net gain!” Ed Byrne

Here are 5 tips to improve yourearly morning workouts, along with the benefits of early morning workouts, and a quick 30 minute workout you can do with no equipment.
Why Early Morning Workouts Are Great
Exercise in the morning provides a wide range of benefits that offer physical and mental gratification:
Strength training exercise can boost metabolism for up to 48 hours so doing your workout in the AM is a great way to jumpstart your metabolism.This elevated metabolism will ensure you are burning calories throughout the day.
Exercise also promotes endorphins in the brain, which can elevate your mood and start your day off on a positive note.More so, your sense of accomplishment from knowing you have your workout done before you even start your workday will elevate your mood and keep you from stressing over it later if something unexpected arises. According to research, exercise significantly increases mental capacity and exercising in the A.M. can allow you to harness that increased brainpower.
5 Tips For Better Early Morning Workouts
1. Pre-Plan Your Pre-Workout Meal
If you find that you have more energy eating something before your workout, planning your pre-workout meal the night before can be helpful. Research has shown more calories tend to be burned with some fuel in your body before a workout. However, each individual knows his own body best, so finding out what works best for you is essential.
Eating a small to medium sized meal may provide ample energy for your workout without the bloated feeling that comes with larger meals that can affect performance. A great way to kick start your daily meal plan is to make a shake the night before. A healthy pre-made smoothie is versatile and can provide ample fuel to power you through a workout.
Human sleep cycles follow a daily cycle called circadian rhythms. Using an alarm clock, establishing meal times, and even routine workout times are all cues that reset our rhythms. People who consistently exercise in the morning teach their body to be most ready for exercise at that time of day.
Go to bed 30-45 minutes earlier so you can stay on your normal sleep schedule. This will ensure the 30-45 minutes it will take you to get your warmup and workout done in the morning won’t come at the expense of adequate rest.
Research also suggests that morning exercise improves sleep so getting into a good routine of an earlier bed time might not be an issue.Exercise in the morning can help to set the body clock for a day of activity and a night of sleep, while exercise at night can potentially push back the sleep part of the sleep-wake cycle. In one recent experiment women who exercised in the morning averaged a 70% better nights sleep versus non exercisers.
3. Set Everything Up The Night Before
Whether its pushup blocks, a jump rope, bands, or your workout attire, make sure everything is laid out before you go to bed so you won’t be scrambling the next morning. This will save you crucial moments and give yourself the peace of mind that you don’t have to rush your workout. Knowing you have made sufficient preparations will ensure a worry free sleep and stress free morning.
Another great option is to create a new playlist the night before or start your workout with a new song you really enjoy and look forward to hearing. This will help you get out of bed in the morning and get those energy levels fired up early in the morning.
4. Perform A Longer Warm-Up
Your body temperature is naturally lower in the morning and the last thing you want to do is open yourself up for injury. When you begin to exercise, your body undergoes a number of changes such as an increased blood flow, increase respiration rate, and an increased amount of oxygen delivered to muscle cells. In order to ensure these bodily changes respond properly you should gradually prepare your body by performing an adequate warm-up.
Benefits of a solid warm-up:
Prepares your nervous system for the impending exertion of exercise
Heightens your mental acuity
Loosens up your joints and muscles for the prevention of injury
Allows your heart to gradually adjust to the increased activity, thereby increasing the blood flow and sending the proper amount of oxygen and nutrients to your body’s cells.
Perform at least 5-10 minutes of muscle activation and dynamic flexibility movements to get your blood pumping and mentally prepared for you morning workout.
5. Start With Exercises You Enjoy And Recruit A Partner
You’ll be more likely to get out of bed and into your workout if you perform exercises you enjoy. Whether it’s a brisk run, yoga sessions, or a bike ride, perform a morning workout you appreciate to ensure you will stick to a routine and not come to dread that morning alarm. Recruiting a partner can also help with consistency. A pre-arranged workout time with a partner will force you out of bed and take the option of “going back to sleep” out of the equation completely.

The following workout should take you only 30 minutes and require no equipment. It’s a great option if you are on the road on a business trip, or don’t have time to run to the gym.
