How to Enjoy the Holidays Without Ruining Your Healthy Eating and Fitness Lifestyle - Article by Ty Howard

The holiday season, Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, is often packed with guilt-ridden yummy treats and large, delicious, holiday meals. To also include during this time of year; tight schedules, and a string of parties or gatherings that make keeping a regular diet routine and staying fit more challenging. With morning and afternoons spent eating, then watching television, followed by evenings of more eating, drinking, and television; many people tend to pack on extra weight faster than they can say, “That was good, I’ll have some more.”

The amount we eat during the fall holiday season has a proven track record that’s known to ruin the most committed person’s fitness and healthy eating routine. It’s also known to leave numerous people sluggish and unmotivated to restart a fitness or healthy eating routine once they’ve arrived on the other side of New Year’s Day. The struggle, and thought of having to work longer and harder to lose the weight again, becomes deep regret and is hampered by negative self-talk.

Right here and now…pause…take a deep breath in and hold it for three seconds…breathe out slowly…and smile.

Do not fret, this holiday season you can still have fun. You can make it from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day without ruining your commitment to healthy eating and fitness – and here’s how:

Have a few ground rules.

Make your ground rules for eating and exercise throughout the holiday season goals realistic.

A prepared mind means a person often wins at the end of the day. While most of us are opposed to denying ourselves “forbidden foods” during the holiday season, this holiday season you’re going to win because you’re going to enjoy and indulge it with a few general guidelines that you will create, commit to, and follow. For example, at parties, stand up, then step away from the food and table, and move around the room — it helps with your digestion and makes it harder for you to keep piling food and desserts on your plate. Avoid anything fried; use vegetables instead of crackers for dips. Eat slowly, and stick to small portions and healthy choices.

Continue your exercise regimen. Watching what you eat during the holiday season is one thing, but for true consistent fat loss or weight control you must also incorporate regular exercise. Do not abandon what has gotten you to the health and fitness level were at before the season.

Eat and drink healthy options and portions.

Eat a health protein snack and one to three big glasses of water before sitting down to dinner or heading to the holiday party. The protein will help you to feel full for longer, and the consumption of water beforehand will help you to stay hydrated and decrease or eliminate high-calorie beverages and the temptation to overdo it with alcohol. Drink less alcohol, eggnog, punch, soda, and coffee, these are beverages heavy in calories.

Avoid temptation and overindulging.

Whatever your game plan is that you create for the holiday season — stick to the ground rules, no matter what. If the break room at work is full of holiday treats throughout November and December, take more breaks at your desk, and pack and bring your own fresh fruits or veggie snacks to nibble on. While at a party, dinner, or family gathering do not over pack your plate or your children’s plates. Only give yourself and your children just enough to eat; what your positive voice considers to be healthy options and portions. Eat slowly and avoid repeated trips back to buffet to make plate-after-plate. Eat more fruits, vegetables, protein, and less refined carbohydrates.

Listen to your positive voice.

Something tells me, you’ve been very disciplined and driven with your fitness and healthy eating routine this year. So, you know what I mean when I say, listen to your positive voice versus your negative voice. Let’s face it, it’s the holiday season, the time of the year for thankfulness, joyful gatherings, giving, food, desserts, gifts, fun, laughter, traditions, celebrations, family, friends, co-workers, etc. In the midst of it all, it will be your positive voice to pull and get you through by reminding you to stay committed to your ground rules, exercise, and keep a healthy eating routine. Hear and embrace your positive voice each time when it speaks to you saying, “It is okay to have fun, eat, drink, give, and share joy and laughter – but don’t get carried away.”

Treat yourself, eat your favorite foods.

If your family and friends are like my family and friends, the holiday season is always packed with nonstop traditional foods, drinks, desserts, and more. And more times than not, there will always be something you must have and enjoy each year because it might be something that is only prepared during this time of the year. Do not attempt to deprive yourself of your favorite foods. This will only set you up for a disappointing binge. Allow yourself a small portion as your preferred treat and savor it.

Have fun.

Everyone deserves and should have fun throughout the holiday season. Holidays are an opportunity to catch up with family and friends. But the focus on food and eating during this season can be very rough, especially for those who have committed themselves to a fit and healthy way of living. Holiday meals and traditions do not have to be the downfall of what you’ve worked hard for all year. With a little preparation of your ground rules, you’ll be ready to face any November through December holiday season head-on, and enjoy it.

“Yes” and “No”, politely.

It’s tough to say “no” to your co-workers, family members or a stranger at a holiday dinner or party, so when they offer food or a treat to you that you know is loaded with calories, tell them thank you and take it. Say it looks tasty and you wish to take it with you because you’ve just eaten. Ask them to wrap it up for you for later — and give or share it with others so you do not ruin your healthy eating lifestyle on foods and treats loaded with calories during the holiday season. It’s okay…you do not have to be impolite because someone wants to give you food or a treat. Saying “no” and “yes” politely will keep feelings and relationships healthy and filled with joy throughout the season.

With countless parties, traveling here and there, delicious dessert exchanges, family gatherings, and plentiful holiday meals this time of year, even the most committed fit and healthy-eating person can be tempted to overindulge. Sure, the joy and spirit of the season is a great time to enjoy food, drinks, and treats, but you do not want to wake up on the other side of New Year’s Day kicking yourself for overdoing it. Thankfully you will have a few ground rules, continued dedication, and restraint on your side, so you can prevent ruining your commitment to healthy eating and fitness — and still have lots of fun throughout the holiday season.

8 Reasons Why We Should Always Be Thankful by Ty Howard, Motivational Keynote Speaker & Author – [ Article ]

November 13th, 2016 By:


8 Compelling Reasons Why We Should
Always Be Thankful

8 Reasons Why We Should Always Be Thankful - Article by Ty Howard

Copyright © 2016 by Ty Howard. All rights reserved.


It is easy to be thankful for the good things that happen to us in life, and it’s a good decision to do so. Yet, at the same time, it is even more life-enhancing and empowering for us to be thankful for all the other things that happen in our life, too.

A study from the University of California San Diego’s School of Medicine found that people who were more grateful (thankful and appreciative) actually had better heart health, specifically less inflammation and healthier heart rhythms. Based on the study, these filled with gratitude people also lived longer, happier lives.

This brings me to sharing with you my 8 Compelling Reasons Why We Should Always Be Thankful:

FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

If you’re fortunate to be a person whose family cherishes and supports you, be thankful. Friends are the extended families we make. Friends influence and help you to develop into who you are and sometimes who you want to become. They remind you of the value of having friendly and supportive relationships, and what it means to have people outside of family to enjoy and grow through life with. Family and friends are the individuals you can trust and rely on to be there for you through good and challenging times; many people today do not have these types of relationships, so be appreciative.

“Feeling gratitude isn’t born in us — it’s something we are taught, and in turn, we teach our children.” ~ Joyce Brothers


THINGS YOU DO HAVE.

At least you have your health, clothes, shoes, food, a roof over your head, a job, family, friends, opportunities, resources, etc. Heard that before? I am grateful for all that I have right now. It is easy to get trapped into thinking only about the things you feel you want to have or deserve to have that you currently do not have. Stop… take out a piece of paper and a pen to write out a list of things you do have right now, and count your blessings for all of it. We may not have everything we say or think we need right now in our lives, yet, in all honesty — we do. I, you, have been blessed to see another day. Be thankful.

“When you are grateful – when you can see what you have – you unlock blessings to flow in your life.” ~ Suze Orman


AWESOME OPPORTUNITIES IN FRONT OF YOU.

People often complain about their job, calling it the daily grind or worse. But having a job is something for which you can really be grateful. A job probably gets you out of the house every day and adds variety into your daily life so that you are not just sitting at home on the couch. Even more, a job helps you pay your bills and means you’re not standing in the unemployment line or wonderful how you’re going to eat each week.

If you happen to be someone who is currently unemployed and seeking a job, opportunities are there for you, too. I encourage you to continue seeking and interviewing for jobs. If you’ve grown discouraged during this process, motivate yourself to lift your spirits once again and press on. Flip a potential negative situation into a positive one by thinking when it comes to potential opportunities; you can find a new job, go to college, participate in an online training course, or create and start your own entrepreneurial business. Opportunities are everywhere. Be thankful.

“Whatever life throws at me, I’ll take it and be grateful for it as well.” ~ Tom Felton


NATURE.

How lucky are we to have parks, trees, rivers, trails, animals, mountains, hills oceans, and four seasons? Nature is such a blessing, and one for which we should always be grateful. Nature helps us to feel connected to every aspect of this Earth — the ground, the sky, the oceans, and every creature in between; everything. Be thankful.

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton


KINDNESS IN YOU AND ALL AROUND YOU.

The act of gratitude is never enough if we cannot be good to people around us. Be inspired to deliver continuous acts and words of kindness each day. Believe in and find the good in yourself and the people around you. Be the kindness you seek. And be thankful.

“The trick is to be grateful when your mood is high and graceful when it is low.” ~ Richard Carlson


FORGIVENESS.

Forgiveness is an act that frees us so we can bring more love, understanding, and peace of mind into our lives. Forgiveness releases negative energy and creates space for positivity. The release of negative energy also frees you to live more productively and gratefully with less stress. When we forgive, we are not changing the past, we are changing our future. We’re giving ourselves permission to rise above the situation or person we forgave, so we can move forward again. To have this ability, coupled with emotional intelligence, be thankful.

“I know that when I pray, something wonderful happens. Not just to the person or persons for whom I’m praying, but also something wonderful happens to me. I’m grateful that I’m heard.” ~ Maya Angelou


UNIQUENESS.

Everyone is unique in some way, but in many ways we are different when it comes the talents and gifts that we can have. Some of us are good at getting along with people, some of us are good at inventing, some of use are good at creating, some of us are good at sports, some of us are good at acting and entertaining, some of us are good at math and sciences, some of us are good at fashion, some of us are good at imagining things, some of us are good at writing, some of us are good at leading people, some of us are good at doing things most people considered weird or extraordinary, and some of us are good at multiple things.

It’s Okay to be Different, UNIQUE, YOU! Especially in a world where many people fear and struggle to be themselves. Be thankful.

“I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.” ~ Woody Allen


LIFE.

You woke up today breathing and with a pulse. You get the opportunity to appreciate another day, and hopefully you will be blessed to do so again tomorrow. You get the opportunity to see your family, friends, co-workers, classmates, unique people, nature, pets, etc. You also get the opportunity to appreciate nourishment and all that life has to offer.

Life is a gift. Life is priceless. It’s filled with lessons. It can get complicated. It can be rewarding. It’s a beautiful thing. This gives you every reason not to quit on life—and to live your life to the fullest every day, no matter what! Be thankful.

“‘Thank you’ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” ~ Alice Walker


There you have it, my 8 Compelling Reasons Why You Should Always Be Thankful. And I will add to it, “Being Thankful is AWESOME!” You should want to read about it, analyze it, practice it, celebrate it, make it a permanent way of life, and more importantly, consistently journal about it.

Find a way to always be thankful — no matter what. You will find new value, comfort, healing, and heartfelt goodness inside and outside of you each time you do. Be thankful.

Making Self-Love Your Permanent Healthy Habit by Ty Howard, Motivational Speaker & Author – [ Article ]

February 8th, 2016 By:


Making Self-Love Your Permanent Healthy Habit

Copyright © 2016 by Ty Howard.   All rights reserved.

 

Do you know the path to happiness? This path usually varies from person to person. What makes one person happy might not necessarily make another person happy. Yet, the common thread that exists regardless the varying path a person takes is the fact that Self-Love has to always be present on one’s journey to happiness. Without Self-Love happiness cannot and will not sustain itself in the present. When you love yourself through a high amount of self-esteem, self-respect, self-worth, and peace of mind, you will continuously find yourself happy with yourself and life. This is why I encourage everyone to make Self-Love a permanent healthy habit.

How can you make Self-Love a permanent healthy habit and fixture in your life? Below are some practical and useful techniques for developing and achieving such a beneficial reward for you and your life:

Stop having undue expectations of oneself: Have reasonable expectation, and be happy when you are able to achieve them. And, love yourself for that achievement, and give some reward for that. When we focus on the positive things in life, we tend to be happier. And, when we focus on the negative things, we don’t have time to look at all the wonderful things. Obstacles and failures will always be there, and the biggest thing would be to take it in one’s stride.

Stop comparing and stop procrastinating: A lot of people waste their lives and energies in comparing themselves with others, and procrastinating themselves. When you compare yourself with others, you are bound to be unhappy, as there would always be somebody who is doing better than you. So, your comparison should only be with yourself. You should try to compare yourself with whatever you were some time back. When you don’t aim for perfectionism, you would be able to get things done soon, and in a better way. Also, it would help you in performing better in all other areas of life.

Be kind: You should be kind to yourself and towards the other people. The kindness shown to the other people, can make you love yourself, and feel proud about it. When you lend your ears to listen to somebody, or give compliments, you are showing kindness, which will make the other person happy. And, this, in turn, will make you happy, as well.

 

When you start loving yourself, you would be able to live your life in a better way. Self-Love does not mean being obsessed with oneself, or being vain. It is all about having a high amount of self-esteem and self-respect. So, it is all about changing the mind-set. When we love ourselves, we would be able to love others, as well.

So, make Self-Love a permanent healthy habit, and see yourself living a healthy and wonderful life. When you love yourself, your life would become much simpler, and easier. And, you would also see the people reacting to you in a different way, when you give a look of self-love, self-satisfaction, and self-fulfilment. Go easy on your life, and take your life one day at a time. You can get more information on self-love by reading Robert H. Schuller’s book, “Self-Love”, and my book “Untie the KnotsTM That Tie Up Your Life”.

Now, go have fun and peace of mind while Making Self-Love Your Permanent Healthy Habit.

5 Ways to Develop and Strengthen Your Emotional Intelligence by Ty Howard, Motivational Speaker & Author – [ Article ]

May 28th, 2015 By:


5 Ways to Develop and Strengthen Your Emotional Intelligence


Copyright © 2015 by Ty Howard.   All rights reserved.

Many people put a lot of emphasis on a person’s intelligence quotient (IQ). While this is an important factor in determining the success of an individual, there is another factor which is showing to be an important indicator as well. It is a person’s emotional intelligence or EI.

According to Daniel Jay Goleman (author, psychologist, and science journalist), emotional intelligence refers to how well we handle ourselves and our relationships. As adults we can remember times where we or other people have handled situations adversely because of emotions.

Think of someone who you know who has quit a job because they could not get along with their boss or because they had a negative attitude. They may have stormed out of the workplace in anger only to realize later they had made a grave mistake.

This person may have been a skilled individual and could perform their job effortlessly. As a matter of fact, they possibly could have been the best employee in this area but they lacked a high emotional intelligence (EI).

Goleman believes there are four measures of emotional intelligence: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Empathy, Skilled Relationships or Social Skills.

Since these are intangible, how does a person develop these areas in their life? Here are five practical ways to develop emotional intelligence:

1. Perform a 360 evaluation
The starting point of growth is to accurately access where a person is right now. For example, in order to get out of debt, a good start is to know exactly how much you owe. From there, you can see how much work is required to alleviate your debt, and how to effectively begin to structure and discipline yourself as you manage a budget.

The same goes for emotional intelligence. There are tests to help people determine where you are on an IQ and EI level. From this point, you will know where you need to focus your efforts moving forward.

2. Work on Self-Awareness
When we are self-aware, we become more conscious of our actions and reactions. Begin to listen to you inner voice. It is your internal compass and will generally guide you in the right direction. It becomes stronger the more it is used. Journaling is also a good way to strengthen self-awareness.

3. Work on Self-Management
Self-management refers to how a person manages their emotions. Being able to control your emotions is a big key to a successful life. Using the example from above with the employee who quits his job because of anger, we can see how if that same person could manage their emotions they would have avoided cutting off their cash flow because they got a bit emotional at work.

There are many programs that help people manage their emotions. Books like the “Presence Process” by Michael Brown can take people through a process of identifying where there emotions stem from and how to use them a fuel to move forward in life.

4. Work on Empathy
Identifying how other people are feeling is another key component of a strong EI. Be observant of others in your environment. Listen to what they are saying but also care and pay attention to their body language as well.

5. Work on Social Skills
To increase your social skills you can simply go where people are and immerse yourself. If you need a bigger push, join an organization like Toastmasters (www.toastmasters.org), Kiwanis Club (www.kiwanis.org) or Rotary Club (www.rotary.org). Toastmasters International will not only train you to speak in public but it will also help you to increase your overall communication and leadership skills. Kiwanis International and its family of clubs is nearly 600,000 members strong, annually raise more than US$100 million, and report over 18 million volunteer hours to strengthen communities and serve children. Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. If you truly want to work on and increase your social skills these are three very good organizations to get you started.

As you begin to work on your emotional intelligence, you should begin to see noticeable changes in your life. Some companies pride themselves on a strong culture of emotional intelligence because it gives them a look into an employee’s ability to control emotions, handle stress and identify biases. You do not need to wait on a company to send you through this type of training. You can build and strengthen your emotional intelligence on your own with these simple steps.
