1. WHAT NEVER WORKS WHILE JOB HUNTING...
Desperation does not work in the Job Market. Build your network before you need it. Just as you will be offered a loan in high amounts when you do not need it - you will be offered good jobs when you do not need one. Grab one when you are at the top.
2. WHY LOYALTY TO YOUR EMPLOYER IS CAREER SUICIDE.
Are you a loyal employee to the company? Yes? Then you are an idiot. The only loyalty you must have - is to yourself and your brand. Remember this much - the day you are useless - you will be replaced. If you are good - you will be kept as an star employee forever.
3. PEOPLE TALK NEGATIVELY ABOUT YOU? GOOD! HERE IS WHY!
What do you think your Boss & your Colleagues would really say about you behind your back? That is the reality the world speaks about you.
4. WHAT IS YOUR WOW-FACTOR?
Tell me - What is your WOW Factor? Now. Right Away. Right this moment. And then elaborate on it for the next 5 minutes. If you cannot or could not do this - chances are - you are fooling everyone including yourself that you can sell yourself.
5. IMAGINE YOUR CHILD HAD AN ACCIDENT...
If you want to make an evolve - it will only happen if it takes place with a sense of urgency and importance. Want proof? Lets assume - your child met with an accident. What would you do? Would you give excuses? Would you say you 'do not know' what to do? Would you ask others for their opinion? Would you simply plan things out? Or would just 'get things done'? Compare the same with how you are approaching the most important goal of your life - your career, what you earn and how much you earn per month.
6. ARE YOU #1 AMONG 4000?
In the Middle East - In any given week - for a given vacancy, around 4,000 people apply for the position. Ask yourself - out of 4,000 people who are competing for the same position, package and promise - where do I stand? If you are not number 1 - then it is a game of lottery winning.
7. WHEN SHOULD YOU START JOB HUNTING?
Get a new job before you get into shaky grounds with your old employer. The best time to being - is when you are at your peak in the existing job. The only other time I would recommend is - Now.
8. STAY UPDATED OR GET OUTDATED
Make sure the image, updates, personal & professional information and photographs Online & on Social Media is the one you want your potential employer to notice. Also - Update your Resume & LinkedIn Profile regularly.
9. FOLLOW THE '10' PRINCIPLE AND BECOME AN INDUSTRY EXPERT!
Make sure you read the top 10 publications of your industry, network with the top 10 clients of your industry, make friends with the top 10 experts in your industry, make sure that the top 10 decision makers have your Resume and yes, you make 10 new contacts every year related to your industry!
10. WANT TO BE A LEADER? DO THIS!
Learn the art of writing articles, offering suggestions & ideas on LinkedIn & its various groups. How can you become a leader if you cannot communicate your ideas both verbally and in writing?
11. LINKEDIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FACEBOOK.
Most people spend more time on Facebook than on LinkedIn. Guess where do Industry Professionals spend more time on? Also - ensure LinkedIn is your advertising platform through the value you offer its readers, users and viewers.
12. UPDATE YOUR CONTACT LIST
Update your professional contacts frequently. Do you know that within a span of 12 months - anything from 10% to 20% of all your contacts have either changed their jobs or are not longer available on the same contact details?
13. KILL THOSE YOU LOVE
It may sound rude - but do away with people who are useless and time wasters - even if they are members of your own family. Surround yourself with only those who add value to your life. Remember this much - sometimes the ones who are the closest to us - become the reasons for our success. Or failure.
14. HAVE AND MAINTAIN THE A-LIST!
Have an A-List of contacts whom you get in touch with at least once a month. It's who you know and not what you know that would bring opportunities into your life.
15. KEEP IT FRESH
Make & Network with new contacts every single month. The more 'right' people you know - the better it is for you. There are countless possibilities and probabilities. You do not know what you are missing - until you go out there!
16. YOU = KEY-WORDS
Ensure you use keywords in LinkedIn to describe you, market you and promote you. They become the foundation on which others connect with you. What are your keywords?
17. YOU ARE SMARTER THAN THE SYSTEM? REALLY REALLY?
Don't think you can outsmart the system with shortcuts. People assume by just re-creating their Resume at the last minute or putting in some fluffy words or just trying to squeeze in a Resume at a job opening will land them a super-high paying job. Wrong. Think again buddy!
18. DO WHAT KIM KARDASHIAN DOES!
Ensure you can grab people's attention all the while. Everyone is competing to be noticed. So in a crowded competitive room of professional- how noticeable are you? Remember - it is better to be noticed, than to be ignored!
19. ENSURE THIS EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Ensure people endorse you and recommend you. BUT here is a thumb rule! The bigger the names, the bigger the positions, the bigger the brand - the more valuable your Profile becomes. For instance - getting 3 recommendations from the CEO of 5 different multinational companies would do more wonders than getting 50 recommendations from middle line managers.
20. DARE TO DO THIS...
Dare to do things differently - in every possible area and avenue of your life (Dress Sense to how you use Social Media).
21. THIS WAS ONE OF THE BIGGEST SECRETS OF MY SUCCESS!
Get yourself a Professional Mentor & Coach. I wish someone had told me this secret when I was just 7 years old. The magic I have achieved in 6 years - imagine what more could I have done had I been practicing the amazing techniques all my life! Self-Study does help. Self-Help to a certain limit. But there is nothing in the world that can replace being guided by a Professional Mentor!
22. THE MOST AMAZING TRAIT YOU MUST INCULCATE!
Read and Educate Yourself with the latest Industry Trends. The more you read, the more it opens your mind to what is happening around. Can't read?. Fine. You can watch YouTube videos? You can listen to MP3's instead of listening to the nonsense that plays on the Radio? Today the oppotunities to study and learn are endless. Stop giving excuses.
23. THE 3 IMPORTANT SKILLS OF BEING NOTICED!
Practice 3 Key Skills - Self-Marketing, Self-Promotion & Self-Sell. However, keep in mind - there is a way in how you do that. It is not just about posting photographs and pictures of yourself online or being limited to smart posts and quotations that you get from the Internet. Do you know what the Gift Economy Is? Read and find out!
24. WANT TO LEARN HOW TO CLOSE A DEAL?
Communication (which includes listening as well) & Negotiation are two key skills that will help you anywhere and everywhere where connecting and making the deal is concerned.
25. NETWORKING 101
If you go into a room filled with 60 people and you have 2 hours - do you know what has to be done? Do you know how to break the ice with strangers? Do you know how to get the information you are looking for? Do you know how to make the guy listening to you or meeting you for the first time - want to know you more? If you don't - its time to learn this skill now.
26. EUREKA! YOU FINALLY GOT THE BILLION DOLLAR IDEA?
Forget it. Ideas are worthless. And if you wonder why no one else is implementing your idea -chances are - many already did it and it didn't work out. Want something better? Take an existing idea or product - and make it better. If in doubt - remember Steve Jobs, the iPod, iPad and iPhone.
27. STICK AND STONE BREAK BONES!
Remember the quote "Stick and Stones may break my bone but words never hurt me?" Between thinking of a great idea and implementing an not so good idea - Implementation is everything. It's only when you start doing or working your idea - will you come to know what works & what doesn't. And yes, how you can improve on it.
28. DO WHAT EVERYONE DOES - RIGHT?
Wrong! The Grass is always Greener on the other side. So remind yourself this when you assume that changing country or company will solve all your problems. Most probably - the biggest problem - is YOU. And yeah - just because people are doing something in large numbers - doesn't mean they are probably right. I don't want to get into any controversies here - but think of all the Atrocities committed throughout history. You will always see people committing these crimes in large numbers!
29. THE KEY TO SURVIVAL!
Evolution is the key. How have you evolved since the last year? Or the year before? Or the year before that?
30. BHAG!
Do you have a BHAG? (Big Hairy Audacious Goal courtesy James Collins and Jerry Porras). If not - set one up.
31. THE P'S & P'S
Keep in mind everything is a process. And every process has procedures. However, if you are smart enough - you would know where the loopholes are and how to maximize on them.
32. THIS TRAIT CAUSES THE WORLD TO GO AROUND!
Likability is a key factor when being selected. So when you are facing unfair competition from those who are even more attractive than you - focus on this Trait! So the question is simply this - On a scale of 1 to 10 - How likeable are you?
33. GET NOTICED OR GET LOST!
At the Red Carpet Event, every single celebrity tries to outdo the other in some crazy way or another. It can be an amazing dress, almost naked dress, crazy dress or something as ridiculous as what Shia Labeouf did one evening on the 12th of February 2014. He sported on a paper back stating "I Am Not Famous Anymore". Uniqueness is what would help you get noticed. Although I wouldn't recommend you to follow what Mr. Shia Labeouf did, I would recommend you stand out always. So - Do you stand out from the rest of the crowd?
34. THE BILLION DOLLAR QUESTION
Personal branding is what would help you position yourself. Are you a Brand? Do you know how to make yourself one? In fact, do you even know what is a Personal Brand? If not, you better get to speed with reality!
35. IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH?
As human beings, temptation is what makes us finally cave into what we shouldn't. That is why no matter how hard people try - McDonald's with its burgers, Snickers with its Chocolate Bar, and even Nike with its over-priced Shoes - ensure its customers keeping spending their hard earned money on stuff they don't actually need. The message = Desirability. It is what you should communicate to the potential employer. Do you know how to make yourself desirable like these amazing brands?
36. THE 4-7-30-3 PRINCIPLE
Sell-ability is what makes you from being 'employed' to 'employable'. Do you know how to sell yourself? I train my students how to do it in 4 Seconds, 7 seconds, 30 seconds & 3 minutes - time slots. Why? Because that is what works in order to succeed!
37. THE FUTURE OF COMMUNICATION?
How well do you know the art of Blogging, Video Blogging & Social Media Marketing? This skill alone will make or break your brand.
38. WHO ARE YOU?
How well do you know yourself? Rather let me rephrase it. How well do you know yourself to market yourself to stand out from the rest of the crowd so that when the employer hears about you - he jumps the gun and immediately decides - you are the one he must employ. Do you know yourself that well? If no is the answer - you seriously better stop everything and learn this skill first!
39. WALK IN MY SHOES!
Do you know the art of how to think, communicate and negotiate from the Employers point of view? Almost every employee or job search candidate thinks from his point of view. If you can walk in the shoes of those whom you are dealing with - you will always succeed no matter what happens!
40. SIMPLE QUESTION FOR WHICH MANY SAY NO...
Have you practised, rehearsed and absolutely mastered the art of the interview? Now before you become Dirty Harry and get ready to fire bullets of confidence in my direction - ask yourself this simple question - is your presentation so good that you could absolutely impress Mark Cuban or Sunder Pichai to employ you immediately? If your answer is still a resounding yes - Trust me - I would want to contact you for tips!
41. HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE A PERFECT RESUME?
Is your Resume perfect? Let me give you a method to evaluate if your Resume is perfect or not. Do this - Ask yourself - what is the salary that would keep you happy? Once you get this amount - Multiply this amount with 12 (12 months in a year). So for instance - if the salary you are looking for is USD $10,000, then multiply this with 12 months = USD $120,000. So now ask yourself - is this Resume that you are using to promote yourself - worth being paid USD $120,000?
42. THE MAGIC WORD - VASTAA
In the Middle East, especially the United Arab Emirates, there is a magic word. It is called "Vastaa". All it means is knowing the 'God-Father' who can help you get you what you want - anything from the job of your dreams to the promotion you assumed you deserve. So what is the point I am trying to make here? Simply this - Do you know the right contacts i.e. the decision makers who can make a decision and ensure you get the job right now? If you have only 5 - you will never be unemployed in your life. However, even after knowing 5, if you are still unemployed - it means you are unemployable.
43. THE MASTERMIND GROUP
Do you have a circle of trust worthy, like-minded people who can add value to your brand? If not, create one. They are what Napoleon Hill once called 'The Mastermind Group'. Here is an article by FORBES that would shed some light into what The Mastermind Group is all about.
44. SHARPEN THE SAW
Do you dedicate at least 1 hour a day Sharpening a Key Skill that will make you employable? Don't know what that means? Read Stephen Covey's Sharpening Your Saw Principle.
45. STEVE JOBS, STEPHEN HAWKINGS & SUPERMAN HAD THIS SUPER POWER...
What am I talking about? The ability to be absolutely and totally Obsessed about something. Now I am pretty aware that this would be looked upon in a negative light. After all - don't we preach having a 'balanced life' and 'keeping life in balance'? Fine. No arguments there. Do you assume any of the great legends of our world had such a luxury? Well, I have to be the bearer of bad news. It doesn't work. So the question here is - Are you totally and absolutely obsessed about your Professional Growth? On a Scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest) where do you rate yourself? And now - where do you think you should rate yourself if you had to get the job of your dreams?
46. TAKE A NEW KIND OF A VACATION...
When was the last time you took a Professional Wellness Vacation - To Focus Strictly on your Professional Growth and Development? When will you plan to take it? What will you choose to develop during that time?
47. FIND OUT THE WEAKEST LINK IN THE CHAIN...
No matter how strong a chain - do you know where it breaks off during pressure and stress? At its weakest link. Do you know the 3 key areas that need the most development and growth - the ones that can literally break you and cause hindrance to your career growth? (or are you assuming you know?)
48. YOUR BIGGEST FRIEND OR GREATEST ENEMY
Are you aware of the fact that Your Immediate Boss can make or break your career prospects in your company? So is he on your side? Or rather - ask yourself - Is your boss someone whom you would like to be - one day? If not - you better change your boss and your company!
49. IS YOUR ORGANIZATIONAL YOUR COFFIN?
Study your company management structure, hierarchy and history. Do you think there is a place for you to move, grow and evolve into? Or are you wasting your time for the next many years in the same position with the same package? And no matter how hard you work or how many hours you put in, the reality is - you will never grow further? If so, better change jobs and change it fast!
50. BE PRACTICAL
Hope is NOT a strategy. In the same way Praying, doing Charity, or lighting candles to your favorite gods may give you a spiritual sense of fulfilment. However, it is NOT what will work in the real world. Be practical.
51. YOU THINK YOU ARE GOOD? REALLY? TRY THIS...
Do you assume you are really good? Then apply to the top 5 competitors of your company and see their response. If they are ready to employ you and your services without a moment's hesitation - you are indeed an Industry Leader. However, if they report you to your employer - chances are, no one wants to employ your sorry behind!
52. MONEY IS EVERYTHING!
How much money do you have stored for a bad day? The thumb rule is to have 12 months salary kept in your bank account untouched - so that if and when you do lose your job - you can sit back, relax and regroup yourself after being laid off. And only after you have relaxed for a few days or weeks - go into an all out assault to finding your new job and position. They say money is not everything? Yeah Right. On the day you are without a job - you will take refuge knowing you have enough and more money resting in the bank for your access!
53. READ THIS SENTENCE 10 TIMES A DAY!
Remember the key rule - Its not what you know. Its who you know. Read this again and again and again!
54.THE MORE YOU KNOW, THE MORE YOU DO NOT KNOW!
Do you know how to Mass Unfollow everyone on Twitter? Do you know how to remove ALL your inactive friends on Facebook with a single click? Do you know how to increase your Google rankings in relation to your blog? Ask yourself - how much more you do not know - which you should be spending time learning!
55. IS THIS THE JOB OF YOUR DREAMS?
Do you REALLY seriously, absolutely and vehemently love your job and what you do? If you don't - PLEASE do yourself a favor - make a change. You just have one life to live. Stop living it doing what you do not love.
56. PENNY WISE, POUND FOOLISH?
Its tempting to save money and redesign your Resume by yourself, practice interview skills by yourself and learn new skills by yourself. Right? Good strategy to save money - right? If Usain Bolt needs a Coach, If Floyd Mayweather needs a coach, If Mark Zuckerberg needs an Advisory Board - what about you? Oh yeah, I get the argument - you do not want to be "so great" like the rest. Then, please do me a favor. Stop reading this article all together and be happy being mediocre. Just as your job as a professional cannot be done by an amateur - stop assuming that you can suddenly wear the hat of being an Industry Professional that too in an industry you have no experience or expertise in.
57. BELIEVING YOUR OWN BS?
Affirmations, Assertions, Positive Thinking - yes, this helps to a limit. However, when it crosses a certain limit - then it becomes an absolute liability. It serve no purpose being negative. Its okay to be positive. However, you must be realistic! An honest assessment of your situtation is very important. Stop lying to yourself. If wanting to change and improve is just a hope, wish, dream but you do not have the drive, desire and determination to do whatever it takes to put thought into action - then all you are tying to do - really hard - is create an illusion of change and feel good about it.
58. 3+3 COMBO!
Time. Money. Effort. Three things you need to make change happen. Oh yes, did I mention Strategy, Consistency & Coaching?
59. DO WHAT THE BIG BOYS DO!
Why do Global Brands need to constantly reinvent themselves? Why do Software Companies keep updating their software? Why does Facebook, Google and YouTube keep coming out with new features, products and services? Think about it. And then ask yourself - what about you? What new products or services can you come out with that will make you relevant to the market?
60. YOUR REAL COMPETITION... GET READY TO BE SURPRISED!
Facebook, Google, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat - None of these must-have necessary addictions existed in your college days. Today's youngsters are being introduced to this world as young as 6 years old. So the question here begets - how future proof are you for the next 5 years? 10 years? 15 years? Are you ready to face tomorrow's generation when they compete with you head along?
61. THE MASTERY YOU NEED!
Social Media & Software Mastery - Do you have it? No? Seriously No? OMG! Are you for real? Given that today our entire lives are under the microscopic lens of the world - how can you choose to ignore this avenue?
62. EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS = PPPRRRTTTTBBBBBB!
Proud Of Your Educational Qualifications & Degrees? Really? Go show them to a few potential employers and ask them - "Hey Boss - Isn't this impressive? Based on this - how much salary increase or promotions can I get?"... Remember - Unless of course it is from an Ivy League School - The answer your potential employers will give you - will give you a reality check you need.
63. MAKE GOOGLE YOUR BEST FRIEND!
Want to know how searchable or noticeable you are? Google your name. See what you get. If someone cannot find you easily and in large numbers - how exactly would be you noticeable or credible?
64. LAW OF AVERAGES!
Follow the law of averages. If you connect with 100 new contacts - chances are 5 to 10 will become the pivotal reason for your success. So what is your current target per month?
65. WE ARE A PRODUCT OF OUR HABITS!
Look at your past - say for the past 5 years or 10 years in any particular endeavor and evaluate yourself. Chances are, you will repeat the same pattern for the rest of your life.
66. HOW VALUABLE YOU ARE TO YOUR COMPANY - THE ACID TEST!
If you were to resign from your company - would your employer accept it or fight & negotiate with you to ensure you stay? The answer to this question would show how important you are to the Industry at large. Or in a micro sense - how valuable you are to your own company.
67. CHANGE IS PAINFUL, POWERFUL & A PLUS POINT!
Maybe you need to change everything about and I mean everything. Have you thought about how that can impact your life - if you changed everything? However, keep this in mind - its not just external that has to change - you from inside also must.
68. YOUR VALUES - ARE THEY GOOD FOR YOU?
They say - Live your life according to your values. However, if you are not happy with your life right now - its time you had a serious look into your own life and ask yourself - which values you need to change.
69. WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM THE WRESTLERS!
Have you noticed the World Wresting Entertainment? For every Undertaker, there is a John Sena, for ever HHH, there is The Rock. Did you notice - all of them have a different costume, walk-in music, storyline, finishing move, style of doing this and presentation? Ever asked yourself why? The day you get the answer to this question - and yes, implement the answer - you will become the most successful person in your industry.
70. THE MOST IMPORTANT TIME OF YOUR LIFE
The 1st 3 hours of your life after you wake up - are the most productive ones in your life. How do you spend the 1st 3 hours of the morning after waking up? Dressing Up + Staying stuck in Traffic + Reading Emails? And you expect amazing changes to take place in your life?
71. WHAT ARE YOUR S.M.A.R.T GOALS?
Do you have a target for yourself this year? Do you have a master goal? Have you broken this goal for the next 12 months into breakable, achievable chunks? In fact - do you know what you are supposed to achieve this week? If not - what are you doing? Where are you headed? What do you want in life? Can you quantify it, measure it and evaluate it?
72. TAKING SMALL RISKS AND FREQUENT ONES!
Practice taking small risks early on in life and take them frequently. The more risks you take, the better you will be at knowing what works and doesn't work. Never ever ever be happy just being and doing the same.
73. CONSTANT AND NEVER ENDING IMPROVEMENT
This year I have invested in one of the top online coaches for my online presence, Graphic Designing Course to learn how to digitally animate my photographs (which I use rampantly on Social Media), Video Animation Course (as I use YouTube frequently) and also enrolled for a language school in Koh Samui to learn Thai. All this cost me a lot of money. So what are you striving to learn? How much money are you planning to invest?
74. SACRIFICE (NOT THE ELTON JOHN ONE)
Without Sacrifices you can achieve nothing. With prioritising your time to focus on your goals - you cannot achieve anything. So what are you ready to prioritise and sacrifice in order to reach your goals?
75. THE BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED!
My friend Dave Ross (1991 World Champion of Public Speaking for Toastmasters International) said this one quote "I will never let anyone outwork me." This is a principle I have followed to heart which has been the foundation to my success. Apply it and trust me - it will work wonders for you.
76. WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID THIS...
Never Ever Ever Ever Ever Ever Ever Give Up. When you keep at something - you will succeed at some point. Agreed there will be ups and downs - but if you are truly committed to achieving your goal - chances are - you will succeed it at.
77. THE DANGERS OF EARLY SUCCESSES
There is one danger I must warn you about - Early Success. Or Succeeding in itself. It can give you a false sense of confidence and infallibility. I have seen it happen to many people. Do not assume that just because you have succeed once or a few times or in a particular endeavor - you will succeed at everything or always.
78. SALARY IS IMPORTANT... HOWEVER
Remember - when choosing a job, salary is only one part of the equation. The other factors may make or break you completely. Most importantly - read in between the fine lines. Especially - when things don't go so well. In fact, evaluate the place where you are planning to work or apply - check out the people who work there. Evaluate them. Check out and find out what happened to those who left. Most probably - the same story may repeat itself with you.
79. SO WHAT NEXT?
What key decisions have you taken after reading this article? If you have read it all the way to this point - it means you surely want to change and improve. So now the question remains - what will you do, when will you do it and how will you do it?

Positive and Negative CrossFit Debate
As we approach the New Year, I thought it might be a good ideal to rehash the reason for CrossFit workouts and reasons you may not want to consider Crossfitfor 2019. Although I believe in and use a CrossFit program, I can understand why some may choose not to. Below I will lay out my best arguments for and against partaking in CrossFit exercise.
Pro CrossFit Argument:
CrossFit consists of a variety of different exercises. These include strength training and calisthenics. They are designed to work your whole body and not just one specific region or part. These are set up as a quick, high intensity circuit workout.
A CrossFit workout is designed to test your will and fitness. It is typically performed as fast as your body and mental fitness will allow. Most require skill or balance. A person should take the initial time and energy to properly learn the lift or routine.
CrossFit participants are a close knit community. They strive to not only be the best they can be, but also push their surrounding partners to kick it in gear. They will keep you excited and push you to levels of fitness you may have thought unattainable.
CrossFit provides measurement or fitness tracking to monitor your gains. In other words, you can compete both against yourself and other gym members. This is one of the many reasons that people tend to stick with and enjoy CrossFit, as compared to a normal exercise routine.
CrossFit diet and nutrition are also a big part of the overall picture.There are numerous tips and advice on a good diet or Paleo Diet. A CrossFit workout coupled with a good diet will provide amazing results!
CrossFit Negatives:
Many people opposed to CrossFit stress the importance of an individual program verses a class or group workout. Sure, all people are at different levels and often times a workout for one person may need to be different for another. This dilemma can be avoided by stressing proper technique and safety to newer participants.
Specific needs of a beginner are not often addressed. Since every workout is for the group, some weaknesses of a specific person may be detrimental. This too can be minimized with a properly trained CrossFit instructor.
Flexibility issues or prior injuries should always be accounted for before starting a rigorous CrossFit routine.
My Conclusion on Whether or Not to Use CrossFit:
Like any other workout, use common sense. Prior to starting any workout program, get cleared by your healthcare provider. By following good sound diet and training principles, you are probably a great candidate for CrossFit. I have personally witnessed amazing transformations of pudgy, out of shape males and females who took on the CrossFit challenge and became a person they thought they never could be. That is why I hesitate to say that this person or that person should never be allowed to start at a CrossFit gym. As long as they are in sound health, why shouldn't they be allowed to give it a try.
As you probably guessed, I believe the CrossFit pros far outweigh the CrossFit cons!

Doing simple some exercises can help reduce our high blood pressure. That finding, from a review by researchers for the American Heart Association of more than 1,000 scientific studies published between 2006 and 2011, may surprise some people. Which simple exercises are they talking about and how effective are they at reducing hypertension?
The experts, including epidemiologists and cardiologists, looked at three types of therapies as alternative treatments to prescription medication:
  1. behavioural therapies such as meditation,
  2. non-invasive procedures including acupuncture and slow deep breathing, and
  3. three types of exercise - walking, resistance or weight training and hand grip exercises.
The findings, reported in the journal Hypertension, recorded all three types of therapies reduced hypertension. However, some were more effective than others at lowering our high blood pressure.
Which is best at lowering our high blood pressure?
Isometric hand grip exercises: such as those used by golfers to build wrist and forearm strength, lowered high blood pressure by 10 per cent after four weeks of doing the exercises for 15 minutes a day, five days a week. This type of exercise can be done in many ways. For example:
  • pressing your hands together in a prayer position and pushing firmly and counting to ten, then resting for ten seconds and repeating this cycle four more times; or
  • holding a stress ball in your palm, squeeze firmly, hold for ten seconds, then release. Repeat four times daily;or
  • using an isometric hand exerciser. This is like pliers but with a spring in the middle so that with each squeeze you use your hand muscles.
Slow deep breathing: Slow deep breathing was effective at lowering our high blood pressure when performed for 15 minutes three or four times a week There was not strong evidence that acupuncture worked.
Walking: Walking was found to be the best form of exercise, with the biggest reductions in hypertension seen when it is intense and frequent. Half an hour of moderate or high-intensity walking each day will help lower our high blood pressure. The benefit of this form of exercise lasts for almost 24 hours.
The novelty of this research is the effectiveness of some simple forms of exercise. While they can help to reduce hypertension, these exercises should not be relied on their own to lower your high blood pressure.
Fewer health risks
All medications prescribed to reduce hypertension carry a degree of risk of the patient suffering from side effects. In a small number of cases, these side effects can be severe. These alternative approaches posed fewer health risks and side-effects than prescription medication.
Managing high blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle
There is an issue with studies such as the one cited above that we as hypertensives need to be aware of. That is, the research is only looking at a specific aspect or aspects of a problem. On their own, the alternative treatments investigated by the researchers are not as effective as some prescription drugs. However, they often make the prescription drugs more effective. Nor did the research take into account the beneficial effects of lifestyle choices such as:
  • having a healthy balanced diet that is low in sodium and contains at least five different fruits and vegetables each day;
  • losing excess weight;
  • low alcohol consumption; and
  • avoiding the use of tobacco products
If you are serious about reducing your hypertension to normal levels, the best approach is to follow a healthy, more active lifestyle.

A few minutes each day topping up our tan would be a very convenient way of lowering our high blood pressure. Nor would we have the side effects associated with prescription drugs. Is sunbathing more effective than drugs? The popular press' reaction to the recent publication of research in this field would have us believe so, but is it fact or fiction?
What we are really talking about is Vitamin D deficiency, which, whilst being a far cry from sunbathing is not unrelated to it as our main source of Vitamin D is synthesized by our bodies from sunlight.
High blood pressure and lifestyle choices
When we think about our lifestyles and high blood pressure, we more often than not focus on the effects of our modern 'Western" diet or as it is also called SAD - Standard American Diet, and our sedentary lifestyles.
Research recently published by academics from the University of South Australia has put the spotlight on how hypertension is affected by other lifestyle choices - keeping out of the sun and the use of UV blockers.
There was a time when having a suntan was considered healthy, but the rise in skin cancers, even in countries with a temperate climate, has changed that perception. There is now a general fear that sunbathing might cause skin cancer and the current advice is to use a strong sunscreen or UV blocker. This has contributed to a general deficiency in Vitamin D.
There are other aspects of our modern lifestyle that have had an effect on our production of Vitamin D. Most notably are our working arrangements.
We drive from home to work and spend the whole day inside. We then drive home again where we might spend a short time outside late in the day if the weather is fine, before spending the rest of the evening indoors. As a result, our bodies get insufficient sunlight to make enough Vitamin D.
The new research suggests that Vitamin D deficiency might be a contributing factor in the hypertension epidemic.
Can Vitamin D lower high blood pressure?
The research shows that increasing Vitamin D in the blood by 10% lowers high blood pressure and reduces the risk of the condition developing by 8.1%. The best way for us to get sufficient Vitamin D is to spend a little time in the sunlight each day without using a sunscreen.
Killing two hypertension birds with one stone
An effective way of getting sufficient Vitamin D is take some outdoor exercise, such as going for a brisk walk, jogging or cycling in the sunshine but without applying any sunscreen. We know that exercise can lower high blood pressure and that the benefits last for almost 24 hours. Add to that the benefit of increasing Vitamin D in the blood by 10% and your hypertension will be reduced by an even greater amount.
Sunbathing
Sunbathing without using a sunscreen carries the risk of ultra violet radiation damage to the skin. We call this sunburn. That does not mean to say we should not sit out in the sun for a short while and relaxing before moving into the shade. We should, however, move into the shade before there is any reddening of the skin. In this way we also get a double benefit: increased synthesis of Vitamin D; and, a period of relaxation, both of which can lower our high blood pressure.
Having sufficient Vitamin D can lower our high blood pressure. That much is a fact. Is it more effective than prescription drugs? The research is still in its infancy so it is too early to make such a bold claim.
However, the best way of lowering our high blood pressure to normal levels is by having a healthy balanced diet and by taking regular out-door exercise. That way we will ensure a sufficient supply of Vitamin D from sunlight and from our diet.

Unfortunately, tense shoulders and back pain are not uncommon ailments in today's society. In our fast-paced and high-stress desk jobs, it is not out of the ordinary to be seated for several consecutive hours, which leads to slouched and hunched shoulders and backs, respectively. This amount of time spent in a single position can take a huge toll on our posture, making significant negative changes to the curvature of our spines and tension in our shoulders. A specific type of exercise called Pilates might be your best bet to not only prevent any further damage, but also reduce present symptoms of pain and tension caused by poor posture.
Correct posture is defined as an optimal position while sitting, standing, and moving to resist the forces of gravity that are acting on our bodies. When seated or standing, our spine should have two posterior curves, a slight curve in the thoracic region (disks T1-T12), a fixed curve in the sacral region (disks S1-S5), and two anterior curves, a mild curve in the cervical region (disks C1-C7) and a more aggressive curve in the lumbar region (disks L1-L5). Any manipulations of these curves refer to poor posture that needs to be modified for optimal force absorption abilities. These abnormalities can be detected from the neck and shoulders, all the way down to the lower back and pelvis. This means the entire spinal column can potentially suffer from one area of imbalance.
Poor posture negatively affects the body in several ways. Back, neck, and shoulder pain are the most common complaints of those who suffer from poor posture. Sitting for long periods of time causes compression and misalignment of the spine and the soft tissues located within, which decreases the body's ability to move freely with full range of motion. Headaches caused by tension are another observable setback caused by poor posture. Because individuals tend to put so much tension and stress on their neck and shoulders, the supporting muscles of the head become fatigued, leading to a tension headache. Poor posture, however, causes more than just structural issues. Even your digestive system, especially the intestines, are reduced in their full potential because of the extra pressure and restrictions acting on your body. If you're experiencing digestive distress, it may be time to check and see if poor posture is the responsible cause.
After observing the downfalls of poor posture, we need to learn how to properly fix and correct it. Pilates fitness has scientifically shown the benefits and improvements it can have on individuals with poor posture. Pilates has been referred to as "Contrology", meaning that the highest level of muscle control is developed through this exercise system. When you're able to fine-tune muscle control, other skills like core strength, endurance, and balance start to develop, and each of these components are crucial for progressing towards good posture.
Pilates also focuses on promoting a consistent and balanced musculature throughout the body by increasing core strength. As additional muscles are engaged through specific exercises, the body begins to properly align and support itself, and inflammation, tension and weakness start to disappear. This emphasizes hip, spinal, and shoulder alignment, which helps to eliminate the side effects of spinal compression and shoulder tension from sitting for long periods of time. Besides structure and core strength, other fitness goals can be achieved when beginning a Pilates program.
Pilates, like other types of exercise programs, takes some time and effort to see improved results. Focused mind patterns, work and dedication are practiced when beginning a Pilates program. Working with a professionally trained Pilates instructor is your best bet to start seeing positive changes in your lifestyle and to reduce back pain and painful tensed shoulders. While many instructors may claim to be Pilates experts, it is crucial to ensure they hold a proper certification of practice. Pilates is a very advanced and developed method of exercise, and working with the highest trained individuals will improve your experienced results faster.
If you suffer from neck tension, slouched shoulders, or back pain, consider trying Pilates to improve your posture. Observable benefits can be reduced pain and tension in the back, shoulders, and spine, correct posture, and improved muscle tone, self-esteem, confidence, digestion, breathing and flexibility. These factors can greatly influence your quality of life, and lead to a healthier and fitter lifestyle. Rather than continue to suffer from frozen shoulder and back pain and increase the severity of your symptoms, learn additional information about Pilates, and make the change in your life to see these desirable benefits.

There are certain times of the year when being alone, perhaps without your children, can feel especially raw. Mother's Day, long Bank Holiday weekends, Valentine's Day, holidays and key social events can be a real struggle if we are by ourselves, separated from our children. It matters little that we usually spend lots of time with them.
Tips for being alone on Mother's Day;
- Remind yourself that it's just one day. If you miss out on a Christmas or Mother's Day it can be all too easy to run with the emotion and get caught up in a cycle of gloom and despondency. Try to detach from the feelings and make sure the next time you see them you have a lovely time together. Focus on making your together times special.
- Yes, by all means, acknowledge that some of your alone time can be a great opportunity to get chores done and catch up on jobs, but also determine to dedicate some time for yourself to enjoy a few treats. Have a leisurely bath, light those lovely scented candles you've been saving for a special occasion, read a book, watch a film, listen to some good music, prepare your favourite food. Relish having the place to yourself. Relax, de-stress and treat yourself well on Mother's Day.
- Avoid guilt-tripping your children or regaling them with details of your distress. Children are not stupid, they're good at sensing how you're feeling and will usually be far more aware of what's going on than you credit. Yes, they'll allow Dad to bribe them with holidays and expensive gifts - why wouldn't they! But they'll also appreciate your daily efforts to feed and care for them, the things you suspect go largely unnoticed.
- Maintain an involvement in other areas of life. Keep your identity and establish some interests away from the home. Keep up to date with the news, popular TV, what's happening in your locale, so you're confident enough to participate in conversations, build new social connections and attract new friends.
- Would you be interested in accepting an offer from friends or colleagues to meet someone they know? Might it be time to meet someone new and do something different? Mixing and talking to new people, particularly potential dates, is a great way to improve your confidence and self-esteem, motivate you to dress up, look after yourself and remind yourself that you're more than 'just' a Mum! Plus conversing with new people is an important skill, quickly lost if we're out of practice and haven't socialised independently in a while.
- Are you ready to consider dipping a tentative toe into the official dating scene again? Online dating sites are an increasingly popular way to meet new people and offer great practical advice. For example, be careful how much personal information you disclose, limit a first meeting to an hour and in a public place, and trust your gut instincts if you start to feel uneasy.
- Manage your expectations and don't invest everything in a new friendship/relationship from the outset. Enjoy meeting someone new, practicing your conversational skills, maybe flirting a little and making a new friend even if it doesn't result in them becoming a lover.
- Make invitations. Take charge of the parts of your life you have some control over, like your social life. Be proactive and join mailing lists. Source free exhibitions, two for the price of one offers and early doors specials on meals. Become the go-to guy for fun and also accept when others reciprocate and invite you along. Keep in touch with what's happening around you.
- Provide reasonable options. Your friends and inner circle may wish to socialise but may need to be careful about their expenditure. You could suggest a pamper evening at each other's homes, or supper parties where everyone contributes a dish and/or bottle. Or retrieve your board games and have competition evenings; I know of several people who started games evenings over the winter months and enjoyed them so much that they became a regular part of their calendar.
- Also, make time for some of the things that interest you, if you are able. Volunteer, join a class, walking group or activity you enjoy. Maybe alternate child care with other mums and dedicate some free time to mixing and meeting people with similar interests to yourself. Enjoy sharing conversations, becoming friends and, who knows, maybe meeting someone new too.
Remind yourself that each situation has pros and cons. Being single isn't the end of the world! Alone doesn't have to mean lonely. In fact many people in unhappy relationships will envy you your freedom and the fact that you're now starting out afresh. Have a great Mother's Day!
