Okay here it is folks. The last item on the list of things to do in 2014
JOIN A MARTIAL ARTS
Yes that’s right, join a martial arts. Martial Arts is a powerfully awesome thing for you to do.
Here is a few reasons why:
Helps develop self discipline
Boost socializing skills
Promote physical activity
Learn to set and achieve goals
Improves self esteem
Instills a sense of respect
Encourages non violent conflict resolutions
Improves listening skills
Helps develop team work
Improves your overall health
Learn self defense
Improves many other areas of your life
IT’S A LOT OF FUN!!!!
ANd the list could go on and on. But I want you to seriously think about taking martial arts if you aren’t doing so already. And if you are already taking a martial arts I ask that you learn more about the non physical aspects of your art like history, the deep meanings, and philosophy of the art.
Only two more items left after this one. How are you liking the list of things to do in 2014 so far?
Item Eight: Learn
Learning is fun and makes you sharper. It allows you to have educated and valuable opinions about all sorts of topics. So I suggest you strive to learn at least one new thing everyday. It can be something big or small. It doesn’t really matter. As long as it adds some sort of value to you as a person and you enjoy learning it. If you only learned one new thing every day for one year you will have learned 365 new things. That’s really a lot.
Well we are on the last four items you should do in 2014.
Item Seven: Travel
Whether you already travel now or you don’t you should travel more. Even if it’s one cool place each year. Pick somewhere you have never been to before and go there. It can be close by or far away. It doesn’t really matter. Just get out there and have an adventure. Meet new people and hear their stories along your trips.
Well we are just over half way through the list of things to do for 2014.
Item Six: Set Goals
Set goals and not resolutions. Set out to achieve specific goals for 2014. The goals must have a time limit and be specific and measurable. The more details you have about your goals the clearer it will be in your mind. The clearer in your mind the easier it should be. Also pick goals that are meaningful to you. Don’t pick the generic things everyone does. You are you and your goals belong to you only.
Well we are half way there. Day 5 of 10 for the list of things you will do for 2014
Item Five: Move On
2013 is gone and so is every other year. Time to focus on 2014. Focus on the present and you will get more things done and you will enjoy the moment more. And there is nothing you can do about the past now. It’s done and over with.
Day 4 of 10 of the list of things you are going to get done in 2014.
Item Four: Be Kinder
This is a pretty simple one. Strive to be kinder to everyone you meet and greet. If everyone did this one item we would live in a little better world. Simply go through your day treating others how you want to be treated. I’m pretty sure we all want to be treated with courtesy and kindness, yes?
So here is day 3 of 10 for the list of ten things you are going to do in 2014.
Item Three: Drop Toxic Habits
Make up your mind to drop toxic habits that are not good for you or others around you. And I am not just talking physical habits but also mentally and spiritually toxic habits. What habits are you doing that are hurting yourself and the people around you? Strive to eliminate them from your life. It’ll make you feel better and healthier.
Okay here is day 2 of 10 for the ten items you are going to do for 2014.
Item Two: Eat Clean or Cleaner
Eating a healthy diet will make you feel better and make you healthier. Do this year strive to clean up your diet. If you are already eating pretty clean and healthy how can you improve your diet and nutrition further? If you need some huge improvements in your nutrition and diet plan I suggest doing your research, read some good books, and maybe even see a Naturopathic Doctor or Nutritionist to help you with it. Make it a goal to clean up your diet.
Okay it is now 2014. Have you made any resolutions that you may or may not keep yet? I created a list of ten things I think we all should do in 2014. So for the next 10 business days I will post one item each day for you to think about and make happen.
Item One: Exercise More.
Our bodies were designed to move around and endure and adapt to physical activities. So figure out a plan that allows you to do a little more exercise each day then you do now. It can be anything like exercise classes, martial arts classes, weight training, cardio, sports, or whatever. Don’t make any excuses. Just make it happen.
