If it scares you…do it!

Bodytek Personal training

The content here will improve any career, relationship, hobby, sport, challenge, or adventure that you apply it to. By overcoming our fears we free ourselves to be and do anything, no matter how fantastic it seems. Achieving the goals we fear may bring us results in true personal growth, willpower, and strength that lasts a lifetime. Thank you “Bud Bilanich” for laying it down so clearly, Lee

If you want to become self confident, you need to do three things:
1) become an optimist;
2) face your fears and deal with them; and
3) surround yourself with positive people.
Today, I’d like to focus on fear — that uncomfortable feeling that prevents you from taking the action necessary to get what you want in life.

Where do you define yourself?

Bodytek Personal trainingYes. Periods of anxiety and being scared allow the sympathetic nervous system to override the parasympathetic system.

The subsequent release of catecholamines such as adrenaline cause your heart rate and strength of contraction to increase, in order to supply your muscles with more oxygen and glucose. Your heart therefore gets a workout, just as it would if you went on the treadmill. Your blood pressure increases, as does your breathing rate and depth. These are all good effects.

The Sneakymonia…

Walking Pneumonia.
SickMany people may be aware of traditional pneumonia, which is a serious infection of the lungs. If a person gets regular pneumonia, they will need hospitalization in order to get themselves healthy again. And yet, there is a type of pneumonia that is as harmless as a flu. It is called walking pneumonia. What is walking pneumonia? Walking pneumonia is a relatively minor lung infection that is caused by the Mycoplasma pneumoniae organism. And although the bacteria is causing an infection in the lungs, the disease itself is so minute that it is possible the body can cure it without additional treatment. This is why walking pneumonia developed its interesting name, since it is possible to do things normally despite what is going on inside your body. Of course, treating walking pneumonia nonchalantly is definitely not recommended, since the disease still produces uncomfortable symptoms and can be contagious. “sourced from the definitive guide to Pneumonia: http://www.walkingpneumonia.org/
