Fitness gadgets and gimmicks

I feel compelled to have a bit of a rant today…I’m sorry if I ‘knock’ something you like, don’t take it personally!!

Being a health and fitness freak and keen blogger, I am myself subscribed to many other blogs, newsletters and health or fitness related websites, so I receive LOTS of emails about health and fitness related topics. Some are great, and some are, well, crap. If you are a regular follower of my blog, you’ll know already that I try my best not to ‘name names’ as I don’t like to be negative or put anyone else down, I just don’t think there is any need. So I’m not going to name any person, company or product in this post if I can help it, I’ll be purposefully vague when it comes to names.

There’s an app for that

I read a lot, and for the last 17 years I have been professionally involved in the tech business, specifically in the mobile phone business. Over the last year or two, I have a growing nagging feeling that there are aspects of ‘the smartphone boom’ that are really starting to bother me. Increasingly, I worry that the devices in our pockets are doing so much for us, that our brains (especially the common sense part, and the ‘gumption’ part) are in danger of atrophying away to nothing. I am bothered by the ridiculous range of apps available, and the ridiculous ways they are encouraging people to become lazier, and the ridiculous ways they are filling all our time with nonsense activities.

In the last week, I have read of several truly ridiculous new apps. There is one that’s just been released which links a certain make of car (in the US) with a certain extremely popular make of phone. So you can buy the app, sync your phone with your car, and the app enables you to unlock the car and start the engine from a distance, as you walk towards the car and prepare to get in to it. I am forced to ask the question…WHY? Why the hell does anyone need such an app? Why would any developer/company bother to put up the development costs to make such an app? Are people really THAT lazy or in that much of a hurry?

Another new app helps people find their car, if they can’t remember where they parked it in a car park. This particular app specialises in doing this in places with no mobile signal, so it uses Bluetooth or satellite signals. Oh, however did we survive the last 50 years without such a thing? Read more

‘It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up’

If you want to get on in life, if you want to beat the competition, you need more energy!

Here is an MND Video for you to watch, link coming up in this post.

I believe that MotherNaturesDiet will help you, wherever you are now, to make forward progress.

It is important to me to help you understand that MND is for everyone. I truly believe it can help everyone. It may not be perfect, it may not be “all things” to everyone, but I think it can at least help. I think that for MANY people, MND offers all the answers, the ultimate long-term sustainable healthy lifestyle.

I’m already super healthy and very fit, I run marathons and go rock climbing, but you may be in a different place to me, and that’s OK, the 12 Core Principles are not prescribed meals and exercises, they are ways of living, and you can incorporate them as much or as little as you want to in your life to make forward progress.

If you are already fit too, and just looking for ‘the next 1%’ or you are seeking ‘the edge’ in your chosen sport or competition, then MND is a way to get your body functioning optimally, to give you more energy to help you get ahead.

Maybe you are unfit, maybe you are over weight and out of shape, then MND will help get you to a better place, MND will help you lose that weight and improve your fitness. Maybe you are searching for ways to have more energy and vitality – MND can help. Maybe you want to resist the signs of ageing and turn back the clock a little – MND can help.

Whatever your goals

Whether your goal is to build big muscles, lose weight, get fitter, run a faster marathon, resist ageing, feel better, stop the wrinkles, have more energy to work at your career and provide for your family, MND can help you to make progress from where you are. I post pictures of me running around mountains and doing a lot of push-ups, but that’s just me, that’s my thing…YOUR thing might be something different, and that’s OK, the 12 Core Principles are just that, PRINCIPLES, to help you live better, live longer, live stronger.

Whatever YOUR goals, never getting sick, having more energy and feeling great will help you to achieve them, so stick to the MND way and you will make progress.

Yesterday, while I was out on the hills, I made a video about having more energy – watch it here: http://youtu.be/jmRHuRyvfKY

There is a lot of competition for ‘the good stuff’ in life

Every day I hear people complaining that they wish they could earn more. No, scrub that, they complain that they wish they were PAID more. But here is the thing – when we go to work, we need to stop thinking about “what I get paid” and start thinking about “what I EARN”. They don’t just give it to you because they like your face, you have to EARN that pay cheque!! And a lot of people seem to have a problem with the earning bit. To earn it, you have to work, lots. And the problem with climbing the career ladder today, is that someone else is always more eager than you to climb the same ladder. If you want to beat that other person, you gotta show up, you gotta put in the hours, you gotta work. And that takes energy.

It’s the same with chasing a woman, or a man – or keeping the one you already have. It takes energy, it takes effort – if you want the best, you have to be the best! If you want to create, or maintain, a spectacular relationship, you need to show up, be present, be engaged, bring some magic to the table.

It takes energy to stay on top of your game in business, in sport, in performing, in relationships, in all areas of your life.

The fantastic Tony Robbins once said that if you could have one thing to help you succeed in all areas of your life, having twice as much energy as everyone else would be the key, THE one great secret to success in all areas. I think that’s right – you know, as Bebe Ruth famously said, ‘It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up’.

MotherNaturesDiet –

MND all the way folks.
