Best Tips to Improve Your Health - Live Successful Life
8 powerful keys to good health – plain, simple and fast:
- Look out the window for a couple of minutes every hour when you do detailed work. You need to stretch your eyes to prevent fatigue and strain. No window? Then close your eyes and imagine looking out at a landscape. Healthy eyes are alert.
- Start grazing instead of gorging. Because you eat smaller meals more frequently, you will stabilize insulin levels, speed up metabolism and are less likely to overeat. Also digestion will improve which means more nutrients are absorbed and heartburn is reduced.
- Read labels – you might not eat it when you know what’s in it. If there are multi-syllabic words you have trouble reading, don’t feed it to your body.
- Eat blueberries and you can freeze them: These power-packed berries manage weight because you eat them slowly, help prevent urinary tract infections, strengthen the retina of the eyes and contain Resveratrol to benefit your cardiovascular system and promote healthy aging for skin.
- Drink hot green tea – a great anti-inflammatory, has been shown in laboratories to benefit the skin and protect it from sun damage; because you sip hot tea, it helps you to slow down and de-stress.
- Don’t sit all day at your desk or plop down and watch TV all evening. Take frequent breaks like a three-minute walk; include calf raises to promote circulation in the legs with some knee lifts and marching in place. Three minutes here and there add up to a great workout- exercise is cumulative.
- Do something nice for someone else, as simple as a smile or saying something positive (a sign that you celebrate life). Then be sure to receive a kindness, present or compliment that comes your way with a simple thank you without the qualifier. The secret to good health is the balance between giving and receiving.
- Recall a time when a person (people) really encouraged you. Remember how terrific and empowered you felt when they praised specific traits. Tap into those traits today to give you the confidence to feel less stressed and anxious. Now soar.

Learn what the six basic fears are and how to eliminate them.
There are many factors which influence our day to day lives, most of which are fear driven. Understanding these fears and learning to overcome them is the first step to being a more successful person in every aspect of our life. Napoleon Hill in his book "Think and Grow Rich" illustrated these six basic fears.
The following tips describe the six basic fears and how to eliminate them.
Fear of Poverty:
Believe it or not but having a fear of poverty is actually a good thing. It can be a strong motivating factor to keep pushing ahead. The problem arises when we become so engulfed by this fear that we do nothing.
How to eliminate the fear of poverty:
The simple fix, for the first of six basic fears, is to change the way you think. Negative thoughts will sabotage your life and only lead you to being more impoverished. It may sound like a cliché but thinking positive can make a huge impact. Start doing and stop being lazy. Go out and find ways to improve your life. If you are having trouble in a specific area, find a book or a CD on the subject to help motivate you and correct the problem.
Fear of Old Age:
Have you ever noticed that some people are younger than there age or others seem old for their age? You can see the fear of old age in people who begin to shy away from new things or don't want to participate in activities because they feel too old. Being old is a state of mind not a number.
How to eliminate fear of old age:
To eliminate this fear you need to understand the advantages that come with age. Age should be seen as a sign of strength, wisdom, and character. As we grow older we offer so much more to the world in terms of knowledge and skill. Sure you may not be able to dunk a basketball but chances are you could run circles around people younger than you mentally. This is the time in your life to use your mind not your body to produce amazing things that add value to the world.
Fear of Death
Everyone on some level fears death. The one who claims not to fear it is only deceiving himself. The problem arises when this fear takes over your life and keeps you from living.
How to eliminate the fear of death:
You will never completely eliminate this fear but you can add meaning to your life and know that it meant something. Many soldiers die in wars, what keeps them going is the belief in what they are doing. The best way to overcome this fear is to believe in something greater than yourself. Whether it is through spirituality or religion, the belief that we have a purpose in life will go a long ways in alleviating this fear.
Fear of Loss of Love:
This fear can be seen by intense jealousy or fault finding. If you are afraid of losing love, you will be constantly suspicious and looking for signs of inadequacy.
How to eliminate fear of loss of love:
Not being loved stems from insecurity. Understanding where this insecurity comes from will help you to overcome it. Chances are there has been a negative psychological event in your past that has conditioned you to be this way. In order to fully overcome this you need to change the way you think. Sabotaging yourself by attacking the ones you love will only reinforce your fear.
Fear of Criticism:
Nobody likes to be criticized but fearing criticism will only lead to an inability to get ahead. A fear of criticism can be seen in extravagant spending, self consciousness and a lack of poise among other things.
How to eliminate fear of criticism:
First you need to stop focusing on what you are bad at and find the things that you are good at. Again it comes down to your thought process. If you are always focused on what is wrong then you will never see all of the great things you have to offer. Everyone has something unique about themselves to offer the world. Stop the self pity and be proud of the things you are good at no matter what others say.
Fear of Ill Health
This is a very powerful fear and usually leads to the very problem you fear. Typically this fear manifests itself via hypochondria, excessive exercising, self-coddling, and intemperance.
How to eliminate fear of ill health:
Many times this is psychological in nature. If you find that you have an excessive fear of ill health you really need to see a therapist. This is a very unhealthy fear to have and will only lead you to the very thing you fear. The mind is so powerful that you can actually think yourself sick. Changing your thought process is the only way you will overcome this fear.
If you really do have health problems that cause you to be sick frequently then you need to focus on the things that will keep you well. The mind can not only make you sick but it can also help you heal. Use it to your advantage.
The six basic fears are all centered on negative suggestions that our mind has perceived throughout our life as being true. It's our mindset which creates these fears and it will take a change in the way we think to eliminate them. Like the cliché says "think positive", it really does help.

Are there inner conflicts which hinder you from self-actualization and happiness? Discover your self-reliance by confronting your do-I-dare mindset. It feels good to be bad once in a while because it liberates you from routine restrictions. Being bad connotes that playful, naughty side of living and the freedom to enjoy an activity you are not particularly good at doing. These two attributes are interrelated in uncovering your hidden assets to live life to the max. What’s bad might turn out to be really good for you.
For example, being bad at something often means that you are trying something new: a sport, dance, foreign language or painting – you are going to be clumsy and awful. Enjoy the awkwardness and don’t be afraid of appearing bad in front of others. Eventually you will learn the skill and become proficient.
So what if there are a few discordant notes in my life? Sometimes my soul needs to hear these bad notes.
Born to be bad
- However, our natural curiosity and spontaneity gets curtailed as we grow up:
- What will the neighbors say?
- I will look silly.
- Where are your manners?
Bad and good are often trendy judgments based on what’s in vogue. Over time we sometimes learn that what was bad was actually good for us. For example, whole eggs are a high-quality food that doesn’t raise our cholesterol as much as previously thought (current recommendations 4 eggs a week). Women trying to conceive are advised to eat full-fat ice cream every night (a normal portion, not the whole container). Being out in the sun was deemed a trigger for skin cancer. Staying away from the sun to prevent skin cancer can cause a Vitamin D deficiency,put you in a bad mood and increase your odds for other cancers.
Instead of judgment, how about reframing the question: Do I like this, or don’t I like this? Do I feel comfortable or not? And sometimes when you feel a bit uncomfortable, it is time to take a leap into the next level (this does not mean overriding your intuition, your primal instinct which warns you of danger). Rather, feeling uncomfortable, that excitement that precedes a leap out of your comfort zone, when your senses are on high alert, translates as – bad – go for it!
Here are some bad habits that could be good:
- Starting many different projects – you are a scanner and good at many things.
- Gossiping at the water cooler – a bit of social grooming. You are bonding with your co-workers if the gossip is about celebrities and not malevolently aimed at a colleague or boss.
- Doodling during a lecture or meeting – you are releasing your creative side, decoding your subconscious messages and learning info in a relaxed fashion.
- Procrastinating – you might be percolating ideas.
- Being tardy – you took some time for yourself.

A gentleman once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby.
Surprised, he asked the sculptor, "Do you need two statues of the same idol?"
"No," said the sculptor without looking up, "We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage."
The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage... "Where is the damage?" he asked.
"There is a scratch on the nose of the idol," said the sculptor, still busy with his work.
"Where are you going to install the idol?"
The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.
"If the idol is that high, who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?" the gentleman asked.
The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, "I know it and God knows it!"
Moral - The desire to excel should be exclusive of the fact whether someone appreciates it or not. Excellence is a drive from inside, not outside. Excel at a task today - not necessarily for someone else to
notice but for your own satisfaction.

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from the trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad".
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.
"Oh yes", said the son. "So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants to serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."
The boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks, Dad for showing me how poor we are."
Isn't perspective a wonderful thing ? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.
Appreciate every single thing you have.

When the great library of Alexandria burned, the story goes, one book was saved. But it was not a valuable book; and so a poor man, who could read a little, bought it for a few coppers.
The book wasn't very interesting, but between its pages there was something very interesting indeed. It was a thin strip of vellum on which was written the secret of the "Touchstone"!
The touchstone was a small pebble that could turn any common metal into pure gold. The writing explained that it was lying among thousands and thousands of other pebbles that looked exactly like it. But the secret was this: The real stone would feel warm, while ordinary pebbles are cold.
So the man sold his few belongings, bought some simple supplies, camped on the seashore, and began testing pebbles. He knew that if he picked up ordinary pebbles and threw them down again because they were cold, he might pick up the same pebble hundreds of times. So, when he felt one that was cold, he threw it into the sea. He spent a whole day doing this but none of them was the touchstone. Yet he went on and on this way. Pick up a pebble. Cold - throw it into the sea. Pick up another. Throw it into the sea.
The days stretched into weeks and the weeks into months. One day, however, about midafternoon, he picked up a pebble and it was warm. He threw it into the sea before he realized what he had done. He had formed such a strong habit of throwing each pebble into the sea that when the one he wanted came along, he still threw it away.
So it is with opportunity. Unless we are vigilant, it's easy to fail to recognize an opportunity when it is in hand and it's just as easy to throw it away.
A holy man was having a conversation with God one day and said, ' Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.'
God led the holy man to two doors..
He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water.
The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful. But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths.
The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. God said, 'You have seen Hell.'
They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.
The holy man said, 'I don't understand.. '
It is simple,' said God . 'It requires but one skill.
You see they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves.'
