Setting Priorities


We all get the same number of hours in a day and the real power
in an hour is in setting priorities because without priorities, every
thing seems important.

Dave Lakhani's new book Power of An Hour : Business and Life
Mastery in One Hour A Week
outlines how the change you want
in your business and in your life can occur in just one hour because
of way you harness the hour.

Here are eight steps to harness your hour by setting priorities.

1.  Choose carefully in setting priorities in every aspect of your work
      and life.

2.  Decide on what your priorities are because all priorities are not
      number one priorities.

3.  Establish and set your priorities according to what you value
      most -- this means knowing what you value, what you want
      and arranging them in the order of what matters to you most.

4.  You have a better chance of achieving what matters to you most
      by being realistic in creating possible outcomes, and concentrating
      on the results you want.

5.  Concentrate on one thing at a time.

6.  Be prepared for conflict; resolved them by applying the following
      criteria: (a) outcome will benefit more people than the other, and
      (b) outcome will cause greater harm if deferred.

7.  Focus your energy on what you value most and be prepared for
      change.  Your needs and desires invariably change, so reexamine
      your priorities at least every five weeks.

8.  Include family members; make sure your spouse -- or significant
      other -- is part of the priorities-setting process.  Children, too, must
      have some say in priorities that affect them.

Remember -- in setting your priorities to-do list look for things that
will help you feel secure, happy and fulfilled.

Get going and start because the longer you wait to identify and begin
working toward the outcomes you want, the more difficulty you'll have
reaching them.

EMFs and Public Health
[This information is intended for your knowledge
only.  You must seek prompt attention for any
specific condition and/or situation]


Electrical current installed in homes and office walls
creates significant electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

EMFs are environmental stressors with cumulative
effects.

As these stressors increases they eventually compromise
the ability to function.

If there is a predisposition to it, EMFs increase the
likelihood of serious physical conditions developing
such as allergies, illnesses and deteriorating health
for adults, children and pets.

While the World Health Organization through its
International EMF Project, is identifying research
needs and coordinating a world-wide program of
EMF studies to provide for a better understanding
of any health risk associated with EMF exposure,
placing particular emphasis is on the possible
health consequences of low level EMF -- research
and recent studies are finding that many cancers
and other diseases may be directly related to
exposure to these electrical fields.

Evidence is being found linking electromagnetic
fields (EMFs) to impaired brain function, increased
risk of cancer, headaches, fatigue, and degenerative
diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

Any environmental stressor that has this effect on
physical health needs to be addressed.

Your Stress Matters - Part Two


Last week we introduced you to stress as a choice resulting
from the choices you make with the following stressors:

Breathing, Environment, Attitude and Nutrition [B E A N]

Today we are looking at the last two stressors [causes
of stress] and a few ways to manage your stress reactions
to them.

Your Attitude...

Blaming others for your situation makes you the victim
and this creates stress reactions.

Thinking positively rather than negatively, and using
questions that begin with what and how rather than
who, when and why helps you take control of your life.

When you feel like crying, cry.  Crying is one way your
body releases your stress reactions.

Your Nutrition...

Drinking caffeine creates stress reactions.

Eating 3 meals and 2 snacks a day work wonders.

Eating white products --sugar, white flour, white rice
create stress reactions

Fresh fruit and vegetables help reduce your stress
reactions.

What about nitrates and preservatives, are they in the
foods you eat?

Bottomline, there are no "stress management pills" that
help you take control of your life, so go ahead and share
your feelings, don't act on them.  Instead discover that
your stress matters and how to live with less of your
stress reactions.

Yes, you are able to live with less stress reactions each
and every day; the choice is yours.  Discover your choices
~ your body is telling you what choices to make.

Your Stress Matters - Part One


Did you know that stress is a choice?

That's right, you choose the cause of your stress by the choices
you make with the following stressors : breathing, environment,
attitude and nutrition.

Your breathing...

Check your breathing to see when it is jammed, natural, reversed
or shallow.

Holding your breath until after you have completed an activity
(talking, walking, etc.) creates a physical response, a stress reaction.

What is your physical response, your stress reaction?
Share here...

For natural normal breathing your chest and belly expands when
you breathe in and deflates when you breathe out.

[Caution : Go slow.  Attempting to fix your breathing style by taking
in more oxygen than your body knows may cause hyperventilation.
If this occurs, cup your hands lightly over your mouth (rather than
look for a paper bag) and breathe in and out slowly.  You can do this
while sitting or standing, preferably sitting.]

Are you able to follow your breath as it moves through your body?

Your environment...

Living, shopping and working in sick-buildings and under fluorescent
lights create stress reactions.

What allergens do you live with every day?
Share here...

Yes, you are able to live with less stress reactions every day, the choice
is yours.  Discover your choices, do it now ~ your body is telling you
what choices to make.
