  • Meat v Vegie???????

    Last post: nzkelly on 17.12.13 at 14:37 | Started by James on 27.11.13

    I was a vegetarian for nearly 18 months, and for me, that tired feeling never went away. So, I don't think it is for me. I have maybe one meat free evening meal a week, and I'm fine, but I know if I go too long I just can't concentrate.

    I know lots of healthy vegetarians, but a lot more unhealthy ones. Chips, chocolate, icecream are often vegetarian friendly. What I'm trying to say is a healthy diet is about a lot more than if it has meat in it or not. And different strokes for different folks. More about Meat v Vegie???????

  • Reasons why Facebook is bad

    Last post: nzkelly on 17.12.13 at 14:30 | Started by Prettyboy on 17.04.12

    I think one of the worst things about facebook is how isolating it can be. Most people only put up the good things in their life. If someone is having a bad day, go onto facebook and see all these happy statuses, they feel even more crap and like they have nobody to relate to.

    I work with children who thing their peers have much better lives than them. Yet their peers say the same thing. It is such a skewed look at people's lives, which is having some very negative impacts on people's expectations of life. More about Reasons why Facebook is bad

  • What's the best drink for a Kiwi Christmas?

    Last post: nzkelly on 17.12.13 at 14:25 | Started by Seokso on 15.12.13

    Sangria is a favorite in our house! The basic recipes tend to be a bottle of cheap wine, chop up some oranges, limes, lemons, a few shots of rum, simple syrup (or sugar stirred in) to taste. Leave it all in a jug for at least a few hours before serving. It works with reds, whites, or bubbly. Delicious and refreshing. More about What's the best drink for a Kiwi Christmas?

    I think everyone has this to varying degrees throughout their life. Not just about losing weight, applying for jobs, getting the back yard finished off etc. It is part of the human condition.

    Here are four little rules which help.

    1. There are no more zero days. What's a zero day? A day when you don't do the tiniest thing toward your goal. You don't need to run a marathon every day, that isn't the point. You need to make yourself, and promise yourself that the new system you are living in is a NON-ZERO system. Run to your letterbox and back. Do one push up. Because one is more than zero.

    2. Be grateful to all three versions of yourself. Past, present, and future. Stop a second and think of one good decision you made yesterday. Had a subway instead of a big mac? Thank you past self. Mowed the lawn before it rained today? Thank you younger self. The second part of this is doing favours for your future self, as if they are your best friend. Tired as hell afterwork? F**k you, present self, this one is for future self and I'm gunna do that 3k run. Hear your alarmclock and bed is too comfortable? F**k you, present self, this one is for my best bud, future self. Make sure you thank past self at the end of every single thing.

    3. Forgive yourself. Let's say you know exactly what you need to succeed, bought all the right foods, made an exercise plan, but you still didn't do it. Now you're beating yourself up, which just isn't helpful. Being disappointed causes you to be less productive. Tried to have a non-zero day, but failed? So what. I forgive you past-self. But today is a non-zero masterpiece. Forgiveness man, use it.

    4. This is the easiest. Exercise and books. It's standard advice, but a lot of people don't know exercise makes you smarter. You get endorphins, you clear your mind, and it just does future-self a favour in every possible way. As for reading, almost everything we have thought of, or wanted to know, someone out there will be an expert in.

    That's about it, man. Hope it feels real to you. You can do it! More about motivation
