o Live longer and have a higher quality of lifeThe good news is…you don’t need the magic fairy with her wand to grant you any of these wishes. You can have all of the wonderful benefits listed above and not have to wait for that fairy to pay you a visit.You are now saying so, what is it and how do I get all of these things in my life?The simple answer is ‘proper exercise’.But I hear you say “I hate exercise”.And the answer to this is: “Change your mindset”.Whether you like to exercise or not doesn’t really matter. It is simply not an option but a choice and that choice is totally dependent on you. Somehow you need to change the “I hate” to “I love” to exercise. Tell yourself it makes you feel good, it will help you lose that excess body fat, it will help you be a calmer and saner person, it will make you live longer and the list goes on and on. Whatever it takes is what you need to do.To be able to improve your life in every way and be the person you are meant to be means you must include proper physical activity into your life. If you don’t feel this is necessary and that you can get by without it you are simply cheating yourself. Your life cannot be complete without proper exercise and to start making your life better this is the place to start.Every one of us needs proper regular exercise. It is our natural state to be fit, strong and energetic. If we are not in this state we cannot function properly, either physically or mentally. We might get by without it in our younger days, but as the years pass the toll it takes will make itself apparent in many different negative ways. It will get to the point where the deterioration and degeneration will impact life greatly as the downward spiral accelerates.It is so much easier to take charge and take action to guard against this. If you are new to exercise or do not understand what proper exercise means seek the help of a fitness professional. If you fail to do your program correctly, or fail to use the right exercise such as strength training exercise you will not get the results you hope to get. It is way more than simply going for a walk. We all have legs and we all walk but this will not give you significant anti aging health and wellness benefits.If you have never experienced how good for your inner sense of wellbeing you can get from a regular exercise program you have something great to look forward too. It will become so much easier to be the person you want to be. You will soon have more energy and vitality, a better mind set and attitude to everything in life and a gentler calmer disposition.If you can learn to love exercise and how it makes you feel, you will not have to force yourself and will want to actually do it. This can happen little by little over a period of time. Allow yourself to have this gift and in return you will have access to your health and fitness wish list.

Solo Adventure Holidays

Adventure holidays are often associated with groups of people but this is actually a misconception. Many adventure holidays are actually geared towards solo travellers. These holidays can be great for individual people looking for adventure as the small group of people who are all likely in the same boat often become friends. Adventure holidays are a great way for a solo traveller to enjoy new and amazing experiences without feeling alone.Often lone travellers are more determined so are perfectly suited to trekking holidays such as the Inca trail. The Inca trail is a world famous trek. The traditional route to Machu Picchu is only 33km long but those 33km take 4 days of trekking spanning a journey through cloud forests, and over amazingly beautiful peaks highlighted by seeing ancient ruins built over 500 years ago as you make your way to the lost city of the Incas. The Machu Picchu was initially thought of as just a few rural buildings when it was discovered, but due to its scale and amazing crafting the location was likely a site of importance. There are many theories on the Machu Picchu’s purpose but when you see it for yourself you will be able to ponder your own theories.A benefit of a solo traveller travelling in an organised group of like minded people is that often it is easier to keep costs down. Simple things such as sharing a room if you stay somewhere as a group with someone of the same sex, can save you from paying a single person surcharge. Another benefit is safety, as nice as heading off into the wilderness sounds it is far better to know there are other people around you to help if you need it, such as in a worst case if you got injured.Trekking is one of those unique holiday activities that can be highly sociable. but when you want it you can savour the space and expanse to yourself and feel like you are the only person for miles. You are sure to return from your holiday invigorated and with a boost in self satisfaction and confidence at what you have achieved on your trip, having plenty of interesting tales and often a collection of new friends.

Health and Fitness With Fire Pits

A key component to health and fitness is to simply get people off of the sofa. Even better, spending time in nature is conducive to achieving greater levels of fitness. So get outside, get active, and enjoy all that the green space surrounding your home has to offer.While spending time outdoors, it makes sense to eat there as well. You can prepare delicious and nutritious outdoor meals by using a fire pit. The pit allows you to cook healthful foods such as grilled meats and vegetables. And you can use either wood or charcoal with your pit, offering the flexibility of various cooking options.So, when you’re revamping your eating habits, why not throw in a few pit cooked recipes each week? Grill some chicken over the pit and arrange it over fresh greens for a delicious salad. If you wish to branch out from the grilling aspect of the pit, try traditional campfire foil packets. Take your meat of choice along with plenty of vegetables and place in a double layer of foil. Fold the foil to form a packet and crimp the edges securely. Place your foil packet upon the hot coals of your pit and toss a few coals on top of the packet. In less than a half hour, you should have a tasty, pit-cooked meal.Another healthy pit-cooking option is a play on the old campfire tradition of roasting wieners. Unfortunately, we no know that the wiener is not the healthiest of fare. But you don’t have to give up the roasting just because you forgo hot dogs. Try skewering veggies on a long stick, and roast the veggies. You can even add chicken or beef to this shish kabob for a heartier meal.Even if you’re on a diet, you can still enjoy a sweet, pit-cooked treat to end your meal. Try grilling a banana or some pineapple over the grill. Top the grilled fruit with a touch of honey-sweetened yogurt. Or on a cold night, warm some cider in a campfire pot for a deliciously toasty drink.With such tasty food coming forth from your fire pit, it will be easier than ever to reject fast food and other diet destroyers. Instead, enjoy time in nature, and savor the healthy taste of pit-cooked meals.
