Gratitude is the most Valuable Quality

When we think about happiness it is always associated with gratitude and is most likely a huge desirable trait and quality in that it is usually not enough to simply decide to be grateful but we must actively practice it to cement its place in our lives.
There are many reasons why gratitude is such a desirable quality, aside from its inherent goodness. As we recently wrote in a piece on the benefits of gratitude, performing simple daily acts of gratitude can have a big impact on your health and happiness. These effects are particularly evident in the practice of gratitude journaling. It only takes a few minutes a day, but it can give you a lasting mood boost that can take you from feeling “okay” to feeling “great” on a more regular basis. If you’re wondering what a gratitude journal is or how you can jump on the journaling train, read ahead to learn everything you need to know about keeping a gratitude journal. most people like to know how they can benefit before they start a regular practice. That’s an understandable desire, of course. I would never start eating boring but healthy food on a daily basis without hearing about the fantastic benefits it could bring to my life.
Here citing exact words from Wikipedia ¨Gratitude, thankfulness, thanksgiving, or gratefulness, from the Latin word gratus ‘pleasing, thankful’, is a feeling of appreciation felt by and/or similar positive response shown by the recipient of kindness, gifts, help, favors, or other types of generosity, towards the giver of such gifts¨.
In a stuck moment, it’s hard to see positive forces when obstacles are blaring and fears are looming. This is a good time to be grateful. Not grateful for what has us stuck, but appreciating what doesn’t. Gratitude helps us see our situation in a way that can lessen panic and open up our thinking to new solutions. With the only purpose of sharing this feeling with my readers I want you all to stop for a minute and think how will you get benefit from practicing gratitude, and maybe encouraging some of you who are on the verge that if we put together our thought and feelings and we balance what we have in life and for a simple fact that we got up in the morning and we could see the light..... that is one big reason to practice GRATITUDE and definitely will be a good decision for you. Once you’ve seen all of these wonderful potential benefits, I think I know what your decision will be, well I hope you all have enjoy this post and if you like it please be Grateful and share it with your loved ones and friends and let´s spread the good vibes.

1:1 coaching our lives

This subject its being on the web for a while and I want to share with you some Q&A about it:
What good is life coaching?
Why do I need someone to tell me how to live my life?  
How would listening to someone else talk about what they think I should do really help me? Am I not capable of being my best self on my own?
These are some of the questions that many people have been asking themselves and has contributed to a misunderstanding of what life coaching is, how it works, and how it can help people find out what drives them and apply it to create a better and more fulfilling life.
If this description of life coaching sounds like it could benefit just about anybody, it’s because it can. Life coaching is not therapy or counseling, which pairs a mental health professional with a client who may be struggling with an illness or disability.
It’s not mentor ship, in which a professional is paired with a more experienced professional. Life coaching is also distinct from a training relationship, where a teacher or trainer agrees to share their knowledge or skills with a client for a short period of time.
Life coaching can help fill in the gaps in our master plans and clarify the path from where we are to where we want to be. It is a partnership between the life coach and the client designed to help the client explore their options, focus on their goals, and create a personalized action plan.
Life coaches do not give their clients a list of boxes to tick or a strict set of steps to follow, rather they aim to help their clients discover their own motives and goals, and aid them in finding the best path towards them.
I strongly believe that a life coach is important in our circle to help us thru our moments.

Happy Cooking,

How To Survive the Holidays

Soon a Holiday is coming and let all prepare for it
Let’s start with super healthy tip: Rest up the night before a
holiday feast by getting at least seven hours of sleep.
A recent study found that after a short night’s sleep adults ate
about an extra
300 calories and tended to choose higher-fat, higher-calorie foods.
When women lack sleep they may feel less full after eating,
while men tend to have an increased appetite. By getting your
good night sleep  you will save calories and make healthier choices.
The holidays are a time to enjoy friends, family and food. And,
contrary to popular belief, you can have all three without putting
on the extra pounds!
On average, Americans gain approximately one to two pounds during
the holiday season. While this weight gain isn't dramatic,
research shows it tends to stick and accumulate over the years. Luckily,
those pounds can be avoided through mindful eating in moderation
and a few simple strategies.
In preparation for a big holiday party or feast, do not skip meals
throughout the day as this may result in overeating. It is especially
important to have breakfast, as research shows that those who
eat this important morning meal tend to consume
fewer calories throughout the day.
Include lots of fiber in your diet by eating fruits, vegetables
and whole grains. Fiber-rich foods are high in volume and will
satisfy hunger, but are lower in calories.
Holiday meals tend to be large, buffet-style and include second and
third helpings. While one might not eat an entire cake, a common
mistake is eating large portions of foods that are perceived as healthy.
It's important to include nutrient-rich foods in your diet, but
also remember that these foods have calories as well and should
be eaten in moderation. Using this approach at the holiday dinner
table will allow you to maintain a healthful
eating plan — one that can also include dessert.
There are many strategies to help you avoid overeating. Using a
smaller plate, for instance, allows you to put less food on your
plate and encourages proper portion sizes.
Also, start by filling your plate with vegetables and salad before
going to the entrees and desserts. Eating a salad before your
meal can help you eat fewer calories overall.
Eat slowly and savor every bite, and before you go back for
seconds wait 10 minutes to see if you really are still hungry.
Finally, after dinner, get some physical activity. This is a great time
to go for a walk and catch up with family members, or play catch or
a game of basketball with the kids.
