💊The painkiller paradox, how meditation inhibits empathy, and why intuitive eating is important for the biggest food lovers.

💊Becoming Anti Anti-Inflammatory

In an attempt to find pain relief, you may be unintentionally increasing your pain. That’s right, a recent study from Science Translational Medicine has found that everyday use of steroids and anti-inflammatory painkillers like ibuprofen for lower back pain may increase the risk of developing chronic pain.

Although these medications provide easy, short-term relief, they may deprive the body of essential cells and functions that treat pain naturally. It all comes down to the utilization of white blood cells, called neutrophils. “Neutrophils dominate the early stages of inflammation and set the stage for repair of tissue damage.”

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) actually reduce neutrophil accumulation in the body. So, for people who take NSAIDS to reduce recurring pain from inflammation, chronic pain may be on the horizon.

🔥The Spiritual Meaning of Inflammatory Arthritis

🔥Inflammatory arthritis is an immune response that causes inflammation when the body attacks the joints as if they were foreign bodies. Again, the joints are about movement—mobility and expression. Energetically, inflammation means heat, which is often connected to anger or frustration. Here are some questions you can ask in search of the spiritual meaning of your inflammatory arthritis:

•Are there ways in which I attack or sabotage myself? Am I my own worst enemy?
•What emotions have I been holding myself back from expressing?
Is there anger, frustration, or resentment in my life?
•Do I feel stuck, trapped, or prevented from moving forward in some way?Am I reacting with “stiffness” when stress arises in my life?
•What if I were to move intuitively in my reactions rather than holding them back?

10 Ways To Make Your Day More Meaningful
==================================

1. Wake up early. Enjoy the sunrise. Enjoy the quiet, slow pace of the early morning. Use this time to meditate, pray, reflect, write, exercise, etc.
2. Prioritize. Remember to do the most important things to you and your family. Don’t get bogged down with all of the things that call for your immediate attention.
3. Read books that answer your deepest questions.
4. Eat your food more slowly and actually enjoy it instead of 5. just treating it like fuel. Don’t watch the news and play with your phone while eating. Just eat.
6.Go for a walk and enjoy nature. Sit in a park and listen to the birds. Go to the beach and listen to the waves crashing against the shore.
7. Watch something funny. Not just something mildly funny, like the average sitcom. But your favorite episode of your favorite comedy, your favorite late night comedy sketch, or something else that will make you laugh until your eyes water.
8. Begin a project or hobby you’ve been wanting to start, but have been putting off. Take the first step.
Spend time with the people most important to you, not just the activities most important to you.
9. Do one thing at a time. Whatever is most important to do right now, do it. Let everything else wait. Don’t even think about the next thing. Multi-tasking gets things done, but not done as well, and not done as meaningfully.
10. Help others. And be mindful of the good you have done for others and the good you will continue to do, in your work and in your personal life.

🔥Ways to Stay Motivated

✅Regularly review your goals and progress (create small realistic goals, make a goal chart for the year, break goals into categories)

✅ Accept accountability (be honest with yourself but also gentle. Don’t disapprove of yourself when you fail).

✅Keep the momentum up (once you get insight and accomplish something remember how you did it)

✅Find mentors – a mentor is someone who is experienced in the habit you want to change (nobody can motivate you. Once you are motivated and mentor simply just suggests, inspires and guides)
✅Surround yourself with positive people (find communities and groups and people who have what you are desiring or they are in the process. Socializing just to go do something for lack of self esteem is a dead end).

✅Use exercise as one of your daily goals to improve your mental health. ( find a hobby or skill that may inspire you to bring out ideas and feelings you didn’t know were even there).

🔥What are the excuses for lack of motivation for obtaining well-being. There ‘s no such thing as reasons to why you lack motivation, their merely excuses. If you like your story you keep telling yourself and sharing with everyone else maybe you wanna publish a book about it and stay stuck in your abyss.

8 FALSE THINGS that cause your lack of motivation (and what to do about them)

✅You don’t know what you want (people actually do know what they want when they become intuitive and stop identifying with their EGO).

✅You're not in control of your physiology (this is total bu****it, you are in total control of yourself including your physiology and life).

✅You've made “lack of motivation” part of your identity (identification of your past and present circumstances doesn’t define who you are. Your story is just an excuse to fool yourself)

✅You're not aiming high enough (you can’t aim at any goal if you don’t have a desire. You need to shift your mindset to one of a burning desire first before you can know what to do, where to go, etc)

✅You're overwhelmed (mental ma********on is a common practice among most people. Trying to take on more things is just asking for pain. Being busy is a belief that the ego makes in which the mind listens to. Being busy not mean good or productive necessarily.

✅You’re prone to procrastination (procrastination is an effect of someone who is fueled by low self esteem usually from depression).

🔥The Difference Between Living Healthy Versus Facebook Fake Fitness🔥

🔥PEAK WELLNESS LIVING🔥

🔥The Link Between Physical Pain, Illness, And Not Loving Yourself

✅Are you turning an emotional problem into a body problem?
✅Are you using you body in an unhealthy way?

If you think being FIT starts and ends with just having a seemingly FIT BODY, chances are this will only be temporary goal, chances are you extremely unhealthy in the rest of your life. You're lying to yourself. I've experienced many people who really thinkbeing physically fit or just having a body that you use to get self glorification from others is living healthy. It's not. Meanwhile, they may have an attractive looking body but they are in boat loads of mental and sometinmes physical pain. They may also suffer from unhealthy relationships, poverty, being prone to accidents, addictions, the list goes on.

✅How Your Body Is Hiding A Seething Emotion Inside Yourself

When there is something you're not allowing yourself to feel, admit, or acknowledge, it can become a form of energy that is stored in the body. This energy causes tense muscles, less blood flow to certain organs, and eventually, illness or pain.

This hidden process of stuffing down emotions into your body is also called "somaticizing." "Soma" means body in Latin. When you somaticize, you are transferring your emotional and mental state into your body, and it manifests as physical symptoms. Because you don't face and feel your emotions directly and consciously, your body starts to speak for you through symptoms.
Many people somaticize and they don't even know it.

It starts when an emotion arises in them that they don't want or are scared to experience fully. But instead of allowing themselves to feel those emotions, they'll ignore them.

✅Or they'll distract themselves with busywork, social media, or
TV.
✅Or deny that there's anything wrong.
✅Or "buck up" and tell themselves they're above all that.

And then, months or years later, they develop inexplicable backaches, headaches, weakness, fatigue, or even a chronic illness.
What about you?

🔥Are you not feeling 100% well lately? Do you sometimes get a tightness in your body somewhere, particularly around your neck, shoulders, or back...

✅Or suffer with headaches after particularly stressful times...
✅Or have general feelings of dis-ease that can't be explained medically?
✅If so, it's possible that there's some truth you're not facing or accepting about yourself.
In other words, your physical issues could be a sign there's something you don't love about yourself.

Train Chest, Back, Lats, Core Glutes All At Once!

A Total Approach to Fitness

🔥train the chest and back muscles that tie into the core rotational structure in which connect to the hunted and hamstrings that are responsible for moving the body in any upright position that requires locomotion (walking, running, throwing, climbing, punching).

🔥These types of movements don’t have negative repercussions on the low back (lumbar, sacrum) and the pecs, shoulders, bicep tendon like traditional bilateral exercises (bent over rows, bench presses, back extensions). Stabilizing and unilateral integrity challenges the body’s nervous system to adapt to the Proprioception demands placed on the brain.

Jillian Michaels Says the "Logic" Behind CrossFit Training Doesn't Make Sense 12/08/2020

Jillian Michaels Says the "Logic" Behind CrossFit Training Doesn't Make Sense

https://www.shape.com/fitness/trends/jillian-michaels-crossfit-training-logic

🔥 I’ve expressed these same feelings about 10 years but with more specific detail 😂

My opinion

Yes CrossFit has many disadvantages and limitations And deter mental consequences. I’ve had close friends who were regularl CrossFit Participants who took the exercising seriously, that messed up their body’s badly in numerous of ways. The common injuries were always (shoulders, low back and knees)

🔥From a bio mechanics perspective every single exercise in CrossFit takes place on the Sagittal Plane which goes against the human organism’s primary functional cycle of motion.

Why?

👉 the body was solely designed for propelling itself through space using velocity’s coupled with what is known as the “gait cycle”. Basically movements such as running, jumping, throwing, climbing, crawling. This means multiple planes of motion, parabolic forces coupled with the primary bio mechanics are needed in order to accomplish this. And Crossfit being a stationary training regimen in which the body is always in a bi- lateral stance, moving up and down on the sagittal plane with the arms also moving up and down or front to back in the sagittal plane disconnects the primary systems that move the body which are known as the core systems. in other words, the body was meant to rotate in the trunk and connect the arms and legs to move also in a unilateral fashion, and CrossFit movements completely disconnect the core systems from the rest of the body. This explains why many cross bitters have lower back problems and knee problems. This has nothing to do with being strong or fit by the way.

🔥From a physiology perspective Crossfiters often  very prone to injury due to the fact that the workouts are always for a long length of duration. Another factor that factors into the injury occurrence is the over training of the muscular system in which CrossFitters are burning tons of calories while lacking adequate nutrition due to their popular Paleo diet in which they are starving their muscles of nutrients thus not allowing their bodies to adequately recover from previous training resumes. Don’t get me wrong I’m cross fitters not being in shape, I’ve known plenty who have very good aerobic endurance But it’s only within their type of workouts where they can control their own pace. I could share some stories from my own personal experience where I put crossfitters through one of my training resumes and let’s just say they crumpled quickly.

🔥Another factor to reoccurring injuries in CrossFitters who are inexperienced in general exercise movements, or.Don’t know how to properly move their bodies, or Who have muscular imbalances,  Who try to perform complex exercises such as Olympic lifts or muscle ups often find themselves sitting on the sidelines with a rehabilitating injury. Especially when they’re trying to muscle through the fatigue factor when they spent 10 minutes trying to clean and jerk 100 pounds as many reps as possible (amrap) and their form gets worse and worse with each rep. 

🔥 CrossFit Foundation perspective

CrossFit gyms have become very popular across the United States but have dwindled away in popularity. None of them have any system or plan of attack when it comes to doing training resumes other than the specific exercise selection and how many reps, or how many minutes. This is like building a house with no blueprint. Instead of breaking the ground laying out the concrete, etc. they just start by taking wood and nailing it together and they don’t even realize where that piece is going to fit in to the overall strategy.

🔥Olympic lifting is a Sport within itself

Olympic lifting is a very technical skill set in which the best Olympic lifters started when they were just babies and trained by real coaches who live in breathe Olympic weightlifting Solely. They exercise in Olympic lifting require a lot of flexibility in the knees and hips and levator scapula and shoulders.

Olympic lifting is first and foremost a speed strength sport it requires optimal timing both mentally and physically for an athlete to sn**ch weight off the ground and rock underneath it as if the bar travels over head. One slightest mistake and you will find yourself in a serious problem or even paralyzed if you have an accident when that bar falls on top of your head.

I’ve seen CrossFitters who can’t even squat or deadlift their own body weight, yeah but they are trying to clean and jerk or sn**ch 80 to 90% of their body weight. That is just absolutely ridiculous. I remember When I used to get questions from some CrossFit or’s who were friends of mine and they would ask me “how come I’m not getting any stronger in my Olympic lifts?” I simple answer often was “you guys don’t understand the Science of strength and efficient programming.” 

Jillian Michaels Says the "Logic" Behind CrossFit Training Doesn't Make Sense "To me, Crossfit is exercising, but it's not about having a plan."
