If you can always find a way to start, you won’t be stopped.
We're told to make our goals specific, but is that smart? First, let's cover the positive aspect of being specific. The more specific your plan, the more intentional you are about doing it. Which one off these sounds more intentional to you? Let's go bowling sometime; Let's go bowling at Valley ...

Dieting and cleanses don't work long term because they are too extreme a shift from one's current behavior. First, the subconscious brain will resist the changes (because it prefers known behaviors/habits), making them difficult to sustain over time.

Even if the person is able to fight through brain resistance and "stick it out," they will then face biological resistance. Many animal and human studies have found that long-term calorie restriction (a staple of dieting and "cleanses") causes the body to significantly lower metabolism and increase food efficiency. This combo makes weight gain easier and weight loss more difficult.

It's almost laughable how we react to studies like the one on The Biggest Loser. Here's an excerpt from Mini Habits for Weight Loss:

"What do you think is the recipe for weight loss on the show, the one that produces massive double-digit and even triple-digit weight loss numbers in a short amount of time? It’s the same one we just covered. Exercise for hours every day and severely restrict your calorie intake to create a big calorie deficit.[1] Yep, that will do it! Considering the information we’ve just covered, go ahead and take a guess about what happens to these contestants during and after the show.

During the show, contestants lose a massive amount of weight, some of them dropping well over 100 pounds. What happens next?

A study followed 14 Biggest Loser contestants for six years after the show, and all but one of them regained weight after the show.[2] Four became heavier than when they started the show. Even worse, nearly all of them suffered from abnormally low metabolism for their size, and lower metabolism than when they started. Low metabolism makes weight loss much, much harder, and weight gain effortless.

When this study came out in May 2016, I saw Good Morning America discuss it, and those on the show acted as if we hadn’t known about this concept for decades. My first thought was, 'Why are they acting surprised?'"

This how the body fights to keep its former weight, and it's extremely effective! We see it as a bad thing, but it's a phenomenal survival adaptation. If you lived in a time of famine, such an adaptation could save your life.

Mini Habits for Weight Loss is a game changer. It is one of the only weight loss strategies designed to avoid neurological and biological resistance. It does not target external change, it targets subconscious change. It's not a plan for 30 days, it's a plan to change your preferences for life.

FOUR DAYS UNTIL RELEASE!

Relax!
Mental relaxation is elusive. Even during physical relaxation, the mind can stress out. It benefits the mind AND the body most to relax the mind directly because the mind controls the body. It works inside out. Stress-related ailments like anxiety often manifest physically into things like ...

Admit it. Foxes are impressive. Here's how to live like one!
Foxes are cool. They'd be even cooler if they were “foxi” in plural. Here's how to live like a fox. Use Your Available Tools Like the Fox Uses Its Tail. The fox tail — What? Yes, I know it's cute. Would I snuggle with a fox? No, I would not snuggle with a wild animal.

A different approach to the new year.
At the end of the year, most people reflect on what they've done. Most humans won't even get 100 years to live, so it makes sense to think about each one that we live. I believe it's healthy to continually want to get better at life. You can do that and still be content.

Are you playing to win? Or not to lose?
Bronnie Ware worked as a nurse for seriously ill people for many years, often being with them just before they died. In her conversations over the years, she noted that people in her care told her they had the same types of regrets. She wrote a blog post about it called “Regrets of the Dying.

"Mini Habits for Weight Loss is a revolution. It convincingly demonstrates through science, logic, and clever strategies that weight loss success is not about how hard you try, it’s about how smart your approach is. The world has been 'trying hard' to get healthy for decades. Let’s try something smarter now."

"The true measure of success is not how you measure up to an arbitrary goal that you or society has set, it’s how you measure up to who you were the very moment before this one. If you’re any amount smarter, wiser, faster, stronger, better or further along than you were last minute, you’re succeeding!"
Is there an area in which you feel like you're “behind” where you should be? Do you feel behind in friends, money, respect, free time, happiness, productivity, fitness, health, organization, relationships, or success in general? If an area comes to mind, think about it as you read through this ...

As a male who finds calculus easier than matching clothes, I benefitted greatly from Tannya's expertise and sense of style. We did more in 2 hours at 3 stores than all the clothes shopping I've done in my life combined. Seriously. As I wanted a simple and small wardrobe, she picked out clothes that were basically all interchangeable. And I'm not sure how she did it, but the clothes she picked out for me actually fit me really well. I always had such a tough time finding clothes that fit me, even at the same stores. I'm very happy with my new wardrobe, and the whole experience with Tannya was enjoyable. She has a real knack for fashion! Highly recommended! ~ Stephen Guise (international bestselling author of "Mini Habits")
