Think you don’t have the gas to go the extra mile? Read on.

I love metaphors. You can get so much information across in such a tight bundle. Metaphors are essentially picture-thoughts, they’re a snapshot of a combination of many different thoughts. They save you time and energy when you’re trying to help a person learn something new.

One of my all time favorite metaphors is the car metaphor. You know how it goes: Your a car, food is gas, yadda yadda yadda.

Looking at this metaphor in connection with the “going the extra mile” metaphor, we can make it more powerful and productive for ourselves.

Many times I hear people say that they just don’t have the “energy” to do all the things that they want to get done. I hear that and I understand and i’m throwing another perspective at you:

What if going the extra mile is what you need to GENERATE extra energy? ( Did you know that you can some awesome techniques to fill your Vitality Tank to overflowing when you purchase my new book, “Master Keys to Health and Vitality”?)

The human is a remarkable piece of machinery, pieces of which scientists are still trying to work out and undertsand, although many older cultures that came before use seem to have understood and used that knowledge practically. Think about going theextra mile like this:

If movement generates energy, then isn’t it safe to assume that more movement will generate energy? To be more specific, when you keep moving your body, you continue to stimulate your nervous system and cardiovascular system.

Furthermore, we generate energy aerobically, by breathing. So if you keep moving at a comfortable pace, won’t you continue to breath and generate the necessary energy?

Even better, God designed our body to rest and work, so you can always stop, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, refocus your mind on your mission, and get going again. Of course, depending on the type of “mile” you want to go, you may need a healthy snack.

Think about how much better you feel after shutting your eyes for just a bit. We have a built in Rejuvenation Mechanism that gets activated when you close your eyes. Take advantage of it and soar with the eagles 😉

Another gift that God created that I’m truly grateful for some weeks is Spark. It’s an awesome caffeine supplement loaded with B vitamins and Amino acids to help power you through those Low Vitality Peaks in your day.

Best,

Are you treating exercise “like a multi-vitamin”?

You’re wondering what I mean by the above question, and here’s what I mean:

Are you one of those people who go to the gym and spend an hour or so lifting weights and running on the ( insert machine name here)?

Most people take the “one shot, one kill” approach to exercise and fitness, meaning that they prefer to get all of their exercising and fitness-ing over and done in a given timeframe, namely an hour.

In my mind, that’s the “vitamin” approach to health and fitness. Like you take all your vitamins at once, so too do most of the population “take” their exercise.

Did you know that you can get into amazing shape in as little as 30 minutes a day? Amazing, right?

Did you know that you can accumulate that 30 minute criteria over the course of the day, meaning that you can break up those 30 minutes into 3 time frames of 10 minutes each?

Awesome!! Is what you’re thinking…

The only criterion that have to met to make sure that you are getting the most from each 10 minute timeframe are:

1) You must work hard enough to induce heavy panting

2) See number 1

That’s it. As I’ve mentioned many time before, intense exercise increases your rate of breathing, which in turn increases your bodys’ fat burning ability. Intense activity induces EPOC, or Exercise Post Oxygen Consumption.

The goal is to work yourself into a heavy pant, 3 times a day, 5 days a week.

Its so easy, but so effective.

Listen carefully, because what you’re about to read will change your life( and wardrobe):

All you need to do to get into better shape is to work yourself up to a heavy pant, 3 times a day, 10 minutes at a go.

You can find anyway you choose to make yourself pant. Take the steps( run up the steps). Make love really hard( read: passionately…) Run around the house until your out of breath. The possibilities are endless.

Ask yourself:” if I could think of five ways to make my 10 minutes of exercise fun, what would I think of?”

No excuses. If you have space and an imagination, then you can get into better shape Right Now.

Now, I’ll warn you up front: when you exercise hard, you’ll breath heavier, and you might take a few moments to recover your normal breathing rate. That’s perfectly normal, and as you continue to work in your 10 min intervals, you’ll find that you return to your normal/baseline breathing rate faster and faster.

Another benefit of this interval training process is that you train your heart to beat stronger. Many people don’t realize this, but having a strong heart will help you survive a heart attack.

Proper cardiovascular training will condition your heart and help you survive a cardiac event.

So get up and make yourself breath hard and heavy and the world will watch you zooming by!!!

Sincerely,

Amir
