Welcome to a New Year!

Happy New Years!

Glad to have you here at Insight Writer in 2011. Hard to believe it… Does anyone remember when we were partying like it was 1999?

Anyhow, as most of you know, I took a little break over the Christmas season to have a nice refresher with friends and family, and now I am ready to commit more time again to writing great articles for you!

First, I have an old article I would love to have you read called… Every Day Is A New Day To Start Fresh

And every year is a new year!

This is one of my favorite times as it gives me time to sit down and gain some perspective. To be reflective about the past and to look toward the future with renewed hope.

You may also want to read my article, Reflecting on Your Life, this time of year…

It gives a couple tips on how to reflect and what to reflect on…

And lastly, I want you to read my article entitled… Thinking of Doing Something? Do It NOW!

Hey, we all make New Years Resolutions. No better time then now to do that thing you have always wanted to do. And by now, I mean this year.

As some of you know, I’ve decided to move forward with one of my major life goals… Writing a Book…

This blog is the outcome of my writing practice…

It’s not always formatted right, sometimes I misspell things or use grammar incorrectly. Sometimes paragraphs or sentences are too long, or too short. Sometimes it doesn’t flow properly, and sometimes what I am writing just doesn’t make sense.

Hopefully, if you have been with me for some time you have seen my writing improve? :-)

In any case, it’s time to put all I have learned together in a book. To make it more uniform. To sharpen everything up. To get my points across better then I ever have before.

I’ve spent the better part of the fall writing about health, diet, and exercise. There is still plenty to write, and I will continue to write health articles throughout the year, but my new focus is going to be personal finance. In other words, how to best manage your money.

I want to give that subject a good six months to cover it as fully as I can. Then the last six months of the year I really want to hone in on what personal development is. Personal development is what will actually help us meet our health and personal finance goals.

Once this year is done I will have a great book outline, and a lot of the raw material for the work. Next year will come the rewriting and rewriting and rewriting that it takes to make a work of some significance.

Why am I doing it?

Like training for a marathon, it is a personal goal for me. Also, I feel I have a lot to offer people. I am starting to get emails from people who need help in their personal lives. People are asking me for custom dieting and workout plans. People are asking me if college is a good idea, or where to invest their money. People want to know how to pursue their dreams.

Each day that goes by, I am learning more, I am experiencing more, I am observing more, and I am figuring out more solutions to more problems. If I can help someone with just a portion of their life then I have succeeded.

Again, thank you all for visiting Insight Writer and for being loyal readers. As always, I welcome your thoughts, feelings, comments, questions, and whatever else you have for me!

Cheers,
Jeremy

What Exactly is Health?

What is health? How do we improve it? Why should we improve it?

These are questions we don’t think about too much until we become “unhealthy”.

By thinking about it this way, most people see health as the absence of illness, injury, or pain. But health isn’t just about the absence of bad things happening to our body. It incorporates everything we know that contributes to our general well-being in mind, body, and soul.

There are many things that we can do to improve our health…

1. Exercise
2. Get Enough Sleep
3. Maintain a “healthy” body weight
4. Avoid environmental contaminants
5. Practice safe habits
6. Eat “healthy” food
7. Drink clean water and breath fresh air

And those are just a few things to think about to keep our bodies healthy. We also can practice a lot of things that help keeps our minds and our souls healthy.

Human beings have defined themselves as having three separate parts for a very long time. Many different societies talk about the gut, heart, and mind as three separate things. And science has shown that nervous system near the gut and heart can sometimes have a “mind of their own.”

There are many ways to define health, and many categories of health to look at. A person can be perfectly healthy in their body, but be sick in their mind. Or they can be sick at heart while their mind and body are functioning perfectly. And each area can affect the other. A person who has a sickness in their body can become depressed about it, and depression can lead to a sickness in the body and heart.

The complexity of what health is boils down to a very simple idea. Good health is what allows you to do all the things you would like to do in this world. And poor health is what takes away many of your options. In other words, good health brings freedom.

“The wish for healing has always been half of health.” – Lucius Annaeus Seneca

As Seneca said, a desire to be healthy is half of health. It is where everything begins. If you do not want to be healthy, then you will suffer the consequences of your lifestyle. If you do desire to be healthy, then everything else you desire in life becomes that much easier to attain.

For me, health comes down to one’s ability to accomplish things in life. I desire a little more in life then mere survival. And because of that desire I have to care about my health. For without health, I couldn’t achieve many of the things in life I set out to do.

Many people think that being healthy keeps them from enjoying things in life. They often talk about how boring life would be without alcohol and delectable treats. How boring life would be without dangerous behavior and other things that threaten health and life itself. People with this mindset have a very shallow view of health, and perhaps a very shallow view of life itself. I would go as far to say that they lack understanding of just how precious life is and can be.

Life can be very enjoyable without the things that bring you joy, but threaten your health and life. And many of the things that people view as unhealthy can be healthy and enjoyable in moderation. Striving for good health does not mean depriving yourself of some of the finer things in life.

Health is a mindset with the belief that life is precious. That it deserves respect. That your life is worthwhile. It is not to be wasted.

Good health is, in the end, making the most of your life. Enjoying it to its maximum potential. Health is the great enabler of life.

This is our 2nd challenge in The Personal Health Challenge Series…

How To Setup Google Alerts & Your Google Reader

I just found a great article about setting up Google Alerts…

Google has so many wonderful products, especially for bloggers who want to either find more related stuff on the web or learn how to do better SEO.

Someone recently just told me they found my site by using Google Alerts and I thought to myself, “Why am I not using that?!”

I love browsing the web, maybe a little too much

But if I can get at the information I really want, without sifting through all the garbage first, I will save myself tons of times, and headaches.

So in comes Google Alerts….

If you aren’t familiar with it and want to try it I recommend this article to get started…

Reaching Y’s in the Road

Decisions

Some we make without much thought, others we think about so much that we never decide.

Some are easy, and some are tough. Some can even be considered impossible.

Yet in all of this we must make the decisions we are faced with. That is what makes us human.

Sometimes we are forced to decisions and other times we decide the direction we would like to go.

Although forced decisions often have undesirable consequences, its the decisions of simply choosing a direction that are often the hardest to make.

“Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” -William Shakespeare

I suspect most of us simply achieve greatness by our decisions.

Not only do we get to choose how we achieve greatness in this life, we also get to define what greatness is.

For some it is as simple as living by a moral code everyday. Or doing your work to the best of your ability. Or simply making sure the needs of your family are met.

That is my Y in the road…

As I stand there I think about how it is all up to me. There is no outside influence that can truly determine my path for me. Or even help me with it. The task and burden is mine alone.

For some these thoughts don’t matter. They live their lives how the see fit and make decisions as they come. Some see no decision to be made at all. Just things to be acted upon.

I think about these things all the time. What the future holds and how I can effect it with my decisions. What course of action now will produce the best outcome?

While some of this thinking is good, taken to an extreme, it can be very unhealthy. You forget the present for the future…

You lose yourself in a world of ideas, and possibilities, and even fantasies. Things not based in reality.

Yet, our world is based on such fantasies.

” . . . I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.” -Abraham Lincoln

Some of the greatest advancements of mankind have come through dreamers. Men and women who thought the present could look very different in the future. People who weren’t afraid to try…

“If we are to be really great people, we must strive in good faith to play a great part in the world. We cannot avoid meeting great issues. All that we can determine for ourselves is whether we shall meet them well or ill.” -Theodore Roosevelt

And so my main crossroads has been reached in my life’s work. Do I continue with the direction I am heading in. With a certain outcome that will almost assuredly be a good living for myself and family, and will provide me with a certain amount of job satisfaction. Or do I strive for something more? To be a leader and someone who strives to unite people for the common purpose of overcoming some of the world’s most vexing problems?

This is the essence of my dilemma. Why I wrote my post on monotony last week, and why I am writing this post today.

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.” -Woodrow Wilson

And so I say all that to see that my Y in the road was not really a decision at all. For me, it seems that I contrived the decision point in my head to make the complex simple. Yet, something like this can never really be a singular simple decision. It is one of those decisions you have to make everyday when you get out of bed in the morning.

It is necessary to be slightly under employed if you are to do something significant.James Watson

And so on I go trying to add my little ray of sunshine to the world.  I will worry less about the work I do for a living and more about the work that really changes people’s lives. Not to lessen my work any, it really does change people’s lives in a small yet tangible way. Yet, there is always more work to be done.

So in a sense my decision was already made. Just as each past Y in the road has brought me to where I am today. Each future one will simply be an unfolding of who I really am.

And thinking like that makes everything seem all right with the world…

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill

How to Overcome Our 3 Biggest Enemies in Life

We have many enemies in our lifetime that try to keep us from our best. People oppose us. The environment opposes us. Time, circumstance, and chance all oppose us on occassion. Yet, consistently, we find that the biggest enemy to our success in life is ourselves.

These may or may not be YOUR biggest enemies, but I would wager a bet that they are MOST people’s enemies. Those enemies that try to tear us down are laziness, fear, and self-doubt.

Laziness. Ok. Pop Quiz. Raise your hand if you are lazy. Did you do it? Of course you didn’t, you were too lazy, right? All joking aside this is one of the biggest problems we face as humans. Our lack of inertia, momentum, willpower, whatever you would like to call it. What causes it? I think the word is contentment.

If you are content with what you have then you won’t try to do anything to acheive anything else. If your house is dirty and you think you should clean it, but don’t, what does that tell you? You are content to leave it dirty and are therefore lazy. 

That old enemy laziness is conquered with these weapons.

  1. Simple, plain old action. Don’t procrastinate, do it NOW!
  2. Up your standards. If you aren’t content with something then you are more likely to remedy the situation. In fact, with higher standards you will recognize the problem to begin with.
  3. Stop making excuses. ANYONE can rationalize themselves out of doing something. How about you try to rationalize yourself into DOING something?
  4. Realize that laziness makes you waste your life away. Anyone that dreams of building a life worth living talks about leaving a legacy. Well how can you leave a legacy if you accomplished nothing because you were lazy and just got by? Having a future perspective just might help you overcome your laziness.
Fear. Does fear make you fearful? It should. FDR once said that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Today many people are gripped in fear. They are fearful for the future of the nation, their company, their community, their family, and the list goes on.
We are fearful of what we don’t know or understand. We are also fearful of what we can’t control. The economy is something most people can’t understand and even less people can even begin to control it.
Fear can be healthy if it saves your life. It is unhealthy when it paralyzes you and keeps you from thinking and making right decisions. 
The weapons to conquer fear are many:
  1. Courage. Look fear in the eye. Oftentimes, what we fear isn’t the reality of a thing, but the image of a thing. If we try and see our fears for what they really are we often become less afraid or lose that fear entirely. A roaring lion suddenly becomes a purring kitten.
  2. Test your fears. Overcoming fears can be compared to swimming for the first time. (Or second, or twentieth, depending on who you are.) You stick your toe in, and it is shockingly cold as first, but then you sit there for awhile with your legs in. Then step by step you get in until you are swimming underwater. You are no longer afraid because you tried it. So go ahead and try it!
  3. Learn acceptance. You can’t know everything, and you can’t control everything. Accept it! Roll with it. It is amazing how once you give into those two facts that your fears just vanish.
  4. Realize that you are good enough to succeed. Why do we try to live up to everyone else’s standards but our own? Fear won’t hold you back if you tell yourself you are good enough to be yourself. It shows that you have integrity. I can’t tell you how many people need to hear these exact words. “You have permission to be yourself.” For whatever reason, many of us were raised in such a way that we needed permission to be ourselves. The biggest thing you can do for yourself and those around you is to tell them it’s ok to be their special unique selves. Do it in words and action. You won’t know how much energy that releases until you try it.
Self-Doubt. This is the ugliest enemy of all. Primarily because it is wrapped up in the first two. It is hard to conquer this enemy without facing the other two first. This is the big boss.
Why do we suffer from self-doubt? Because we are too lazy to try and we fear that we might fail. It’s just one horrible vicious cycle that we need to break free from if we want to live life to the fullest.
Here are the big guns to conquer the big boss:
  1. Find Encouraging Friends. Don’t try to do this by yourself. When you got to face a big boss, call in the calvary. This is the #1 thing I can say about conquering self-doubt. I hate to say this, but your friends and family can be some of the biggest sources of discouragement in your life. I’m not saying ditch your family or friends. What I am saying is that everyone needs a cheerleader or two in their life that will cheer for them no matter what the circumstances.
  2. Be an encourager. We all lift each other up. No one can lift themselves up by their bootstraps. If you are lifting your friends up, they will have more self-confidence. If they have more, you will too just by being around them, and you will all gain confidence together.
  3. Be open to making mistakes. This seems to be the #1 piece of advice to any aspiring entrepreneur from entrepreneurs who made it. Everyone makes mistakes, but the more mistakes you make, the better you get. (You are learning from your mistakes, right?) People like Michael Jordan and Tigers Woods have failed just about more times than anyone. However, by failing so much they have succeeded way more than your average person.
  4. Realize that life is short, and you need to play hard. Conquering self-doubt and the rest of your enemies really comes down to perspective. Life is way too short to not play hard. We play around the game instead of playing in the game. If you are focused on actually playing in the game, self-doubt will become a distant memory. How can you doubt yourself when you eventually find yourself doing what you doubted in the first place?
I honestly believe that a whole new world awaits us once we can conquer our enemies. A world we can hardly imagine. There are plenty of enemies out there, but I certainly think these are three of our biggest. Now let’s pick up our weapons and go pick us a fight! ;-)

Let This Recession Make You Richer

*This is a guest post by Daphne @ Joyful Days.

The last recession, which in my part of the world happened around 2002, was worse for me than the current one, even though all the statistics say this one is worse. The reason this time is much easier for me is that I learnt enough from the last one not to get hurt again. I got richer from the last recession, and you can get richer now too.

Make this recession pay you by making sure that it’s the last one that ever costs you. I won’t try to convince you that a recession is a good thing. For many people, it is not. The best thing you can do is to make this the worst one you’ll ever have. If you make the most of this unsolicited opportunity, this may be the best recession of your life.

1. Understand that the first time is the hardest

The next time a recession comes along (and it will) you will be no stranger to it. We do not fear what we know. The second time round, your coping mechanisms will be in place. Use this one to practise a few: play computer games all day to escape the despair, curse and moan to your best friend all afternoon over tea, go for long runs… do whatever it takes. Next time, you’ll have a whole bag of tricks to employ once you see tough times coming.

2. Learn some financial survival skills

The last recession came when I’d just given up a full-time income to start freelancing. Some months I didn’t have enough income to pay the bills. I had to risk my savings in ‘punting’ stocks, watching prices like a hawk, buying and selling within daily or weekly fluctuations. It was unnerving, and I wouldn’t do it now, but at the time you just do what you know to do. If you survive once, you’ll know you can survive again. This confidence itself is priceless.

3. Change your financial habits

I decided I didn’t want to live on the red line ever again, and trained myself to live on only half my income, saving the other half. This means that you can lose half your income and not worry too much. The savings over the years also allow you to make investments which generate a cashflow to back up your principal income source. If you manage this well, you will sail serenely through the storm of the next recession.

4. Build safety nets

Identify where the recession hurt you most. Was it most painful to cut back on your insurance, sell your house or car, or forego the family’s annual holiday? Start building safety nets for these areas so you won’t be caught offguard again. You may want to switch to insurance plans or mortgages with flexible payment schedules, or start putting aside part of your monthly income in a separate holiday account to protect the parts of your life that are most important to you.

5. Be thankful that it’s only temporary

For most of us, the good times will eventually be back. I hate to pull this “think about the hungry children in Africa” stunt but it is true. Some people will live in need all their lives. Some fathers have already sold a kidney so their families can eat. Some mothers will send another daughter into prostitution. If you have phone or electricity bills to pay, you are already better off than many people. Be grateful for what you have.

So there you go. This recession can make you richer in so many ways: in experience, in financial skills, in money habits, in safety nets, in gratitude of spirit. May this recession be your worst one ever, and may it be your best one too by helping you get richer!

Daphne has a lifestyle her friends envy. She is practically semi-retired in her 30s and just loves her life. Her blog Joyful Days was started as a challenge by a friend to help others find and live the life of their dreams as well.

Chronic Inflammation is the Real Killer

Time magazine did a report entitled Inflammation: The Secret Killer back in 2004 that showed how inflammation is linked to many diseases ranging from heart disease to cancer to Alzheimer’s.

Inflammation is a response by the body to remove harmful particles such as pathogens or damaged cells from the body and heal the area that is inflamed. Without an inflammation response your cuts and wounds simply wouldn’t heal.

Cutting your skin or having a pathogen such as a virus invade your body is a form of acute inflammation. This means that the inflammation is very pronounced but goes away in a relatively short amount of time as the body heals itself.

Chronic inflammation is where your body continually acts like it needs healed in a certain area and continues to pump various nutrients and chemicals to the site needing healed. This results in a simultaneous destruction and healing of the cells in question.

What does all this mean?

As with nearly everything in the body, what was meant for good has somehow changed around into something bad. The body attacks itself instead of attacking the real problem.

So what causes chronic inflammations?

A whole host of things cause inflammation including injuries, foreign particles, toxins, irritants, and immune reactions due to hypersensitivity.

Hopefully most of you are trying to avoid injury, the common cold, and know to avoid known toxins and irritants such as those you are exposed to through cigarette smoking. With that being said, we will focus on how the food you eat causes a chronic inflammation response.

As I mentioned in my article on Food Intolerance and Allergies anything that you are intolerant too will cause inflammation. Again these include, but are not limited to, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, soy, and wheat. You could be eating these things all your life and not realize how much they are hurting you.

You may or may not be intolerant to the foods listed above, but it never hurts to do your research and find out for yourself. With that being said, here is a list of pro inflammatory foods…

  1. Sugar – Of all foods nothing is more inflammatory than sugar in it’s raw form. This is because sugar causes a high insulin response and insulin itself is very pro-inflammatory. Insulin is the primary hormone that helps move nutrients into our cells. Limiting sugar intake in all its forms will help you to manage your inflammation response.
  2. Foods High in Omega-6 – While Omega-6 fat is an essential fat for the body we tend to get too much of it, especially in terms of how much Omega 3 fat we ingest. It is best to try and get equal amounts of both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fat in our diet. Foods HIGH in Omega 6 include oils such as soybean and corn oil which are used in processed foods and beef that is raised on a large amount of grain instead of grass-fed. Foods HIGH in Omega 3, which are the foods you should eat more of include, fatty fish such as sardines, salmon, and halibut, flax seeds, and walnuts.
  3. Trans Fats – These are the worthless fats otherwise known as hydrogenated vegetable oils. Avoid them at all costs.
  4. Alcohol – Not necessarily a food, but pro-inflammatory in any case. Alcohol can help contribute to all types of inflammation. Like all things, if you must drink, do it in moderation.
  5. Grains – Grains contribute to inflammation, if not through gluten (or other protein) sensitivity, then through increased insulin response. While “whole grains” have been touted as being better for you than refined grains (due to a lesser glycemic index), they are still not as good for you in terms of your other foods choices.

When you take all the above together you will realize why processed foods are the worst thing you could possibly be eating. Combine some sugar, wheat flour, and soybean or corn oil, and you have a recipe for inflammation disaster.

Pro-Inflammatory Foods To Avoid – Straight from Dr. Perricone and Oprah. :-)

So what is the solution? Eating anti-inflammatory foods.

  1. Fruits and Vegetables – Whole fruits and vegetables, juices don’t count because they usually have too much sugar in them. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables gives you a ton of antioxidants. Oxidative stress is one of the primary causes of inflammation and antioxidants help prevent it.
  2. Fatty Fish – Again, fatty fish has a high amount of omega 3 fatty acids in it which are anti-inflammatory. You can get it by eating the fish, by taking fish oil supplements, or both.
  3. Green Tea – The flavonoids in green tea are known for their high amount of antioxidants and therefore their high anti-inflammatory properties.
  4. Herbs & Spices – Many of the herbs and spices we eat everyday have great anti-inflammatory properties. The top three to eat are garlic, turmeric, and ginger.
  5. Rest – Again this isn’t exactly a food, but getting adequate sleep every night and having relatively low chronic stress in your life will also help to prevent inflammation in your body.

With all the research coming out about inflammation it is good to incorporate what we are learning about it in terms of our own preventative health. Limiting the things that cause inflammation, and increasing the things that limit inflammation in our bodies and our lives will go a long way to improving our overall health and livelihood.

Personal Finance Challenge #27: Mind Over Matter

The phrase “mind over matter” has often been used in self development circles to help us realize that the mind can be more powerful than the body or any other physical thing. Believing in the phrase can help people gain the confidence to achieve things they never thought possible.

Mark Twain stated it more humorously when he said, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

The same can be said for your personal finances. If you don’t mind, then it really doesn’t matter.

I really love the dialogue between the Cheshire Cat and Alice in Alice in Wonderland.

“Alice: Oh, no, no. I was just wondering if you could help me find my way.
Cheshire Cat: Well that depends on where you want to get to.
Alice: Oh, it really doesn’t matter, as long as…
Cheshire Cat: Then it really doesn’t matter which way you go.”

The way you think is the way you act. I truly believe that once you start thinking about your personal finances in a different way, you will begin to act differently. Once you begin to act differently you will start to see different results in your life. But it all starts with thinking differently.

Notice I did not say that once you think differently you will act better and get better results. That all depends on what you decide to think and what you consider to be a better result.

As I have said before, you have to begin with the end in mind. You have to visualize the final result, and as you begin to visualize the final result, you will naturally start making the decisions that will get you there.

This is our 27th challenge in The Personal Finance Challenge Series…
