You are your thoughts!

How does this work?  
Neurotransmitters help to send messages in your brain.  Our thoughts trigger chemical reactions that either increase or decrease these in our brain and impact our well-being.  
So think positive thoughts and you will boost your immune system and reap the benefits of increased wellness.
Meditation and relaxation techniques can quiet the mind and lead to more positivity!
And that is what I wish for you all.

quote of the day

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A little bit of energy...

Well after my 12 hour days, I have been trying to get in shape by going to the gym to do 30 minutes of cardio - treadmill, elliptical and bike.  Also, I have started doing situps and boy does it hurt to laugh these days!!! My abdominal muscles haven't ached like this in a good while... 

Had a good workout session tonight!  It is harder to workout after work the second and third day of working 12 hours shifts back to back.  My motivation is to get results!!! Oh not to forget my few minutes in the sauna that are very relaxing after a hard days work!!!  And soooo worth it!!

When I was a little younger, this was the regular routine.  I loved working out for 1 to 2 hours at least 4 days a week.  To maintain that exercise routine, it really does take a lot of discipline.  We all can get lazy, very easily.  Anyway, it's just wonderful to be able to stay motivated. 

Fitness is the key to a long and healthy life!!

Powers of believing

As each week goes by, I busy myself with new goals and objectives for the year.  I thought of making a  move from my current residence but there's nothing like home, sweet home.  So for the time being, I will just make some new updates to my liking and will remain in Irvine, which I call paradise.  I love where I live.  I am originally from Virginia and it is very green there.  I love trees and Irvine has a lot of green spaces.  It means so much to me and my well-being to live where there is so much nature surrounding me, where I can feel at peace.

I am excited because I passed my boards and now can concentrate on my true passion: writing!  So I am going to begin a new writing project.  I would like to write a children's book.  That's just a thought right now!  We will see if it comes to fruition!  But everything starts with a thought!  Whatever your heart desires, it will always find a way!  Wishing everyone a safe and warm weekend!
Love,  Nikki B.
