✔️According to the National Institute of Health, 8 out of every 10 people complain of back pain at one time or another leading them to seek out pain relief.✔️Do you have an aching back? Most people turn to the medical profession who will prescribe medications. Some choose all natural relief methods, but above all there is one way to get long term relief from persistent back pain.
The answer? Improve your posture first and foremost. Good posture holds the key to relief of not just back pain but sometimes other common body complaints too.
✔️Good Posture Helps to Improve:
* Tingling and numbness in hands
* Tingling and numbness in feet
* help ease breathing ✔️The human body was designed to move – not to sit in a chair for several hours at a time. Over time, bad habits lead to fatigue, depression, pain and headaches. poor posture doesn’t benefit your health.#getfit#family#home#exercise#detox#fitness#weightloss#health#diet#healthy#goals#back#love#healing#beauty#instagood#work#lifestyle#relax#posture#zen#summer#eatclean#diy#yoga#workout#organic#coach#picoftheday#backpain

Is there any way to control your adhd with out the use of medication? And if so how?
There are definitely ways to manage your life when you have ADHD that don’t require medication. Our “treatment options” tag has information about that.
I personally am not taking medication right now. I still consider it to be where people should go first, because it’s often the best immediate solution and because without it the other stuff is really hard to implement.
Since there have been a few asks lately looking for information about this, I’m going to quickly outline what I consider the key points in any ADHD treatment plan, instead of directing everyone to the tags like I have been.
Diet - A good diet that has lots of protein (not like ridiculously high, just higher than average) is important for good brain function. Other important components here include Omega-3 fatty acids (found in eggs and fish, for the most part) and plenty of vegetables, as well as complex carbohydrates (e.g., whole wheat bread and pasta, beans, potatoes).
Exercise - Regular exercise (especially cardio) is amazingly good for your brain! It wakes up your entire body and keeps dopamine in your system, which is great since dopamine is one of the primary neurotransmitters involved in ADHD.
Sleep - When we sleep, our bodies do a bunch of things like healing and rejuvenating. Our brains do that, but they also work through all of the events of the day, committing things to long-term memory and stuff like that. We need to make sure we’re getting at least eight hours of sleep per night to make sure our brains are functioning at their best.
Supplements - Krill oil (or other fish oil), rhodiola, reishi, and other supplements listed here (my father-in-law’s business) can be helpful in promoting optimum functioning. Dr Amen also has some suggestions in his book Healing ADHD.
ADHD Coaching - ADHD coaches help you learn, develop, and implement strategies that work for you, so that you can better manage your ADHD symptoms and be able to do well if you have to stop taking medication.
Talk Therapy - Sometimes you have a lot of stuff you need to work through, so this can be very helpful, whether you see a counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - This is a type of behavioural therapy where the practitioner (a psychologist or social worker with training in CBT) helps you think through your behaviours and come up with better ways to react to different situations.
Meditation - If you’re able to meditate, this can be really helpful in getting your mind centred and teaching your brain to actually concentrate or focus on what you want it to.
Mindfulness - This is something I’ve been hearing more about lately, and it seems to be about getting us to focus on the actual now and the immediate future, rather than dwelling on the past or thinking really far into the future. Being truly present in the moment instead of jumping ahead in conversations or tuning out because something else caught our attention.
I’m sure I’ve missed something, but this is just an overview of the things I have read about or implemented myself. As you can see, there are lots of options for managing your ADHD! And like I said at the beginning, even if you take medication your treatment plan needs to include at least diet, exercise, and sleep as well. Coaching is another good thing to include.
For the fourth time in two days, he’s caught you watching TV with Amanda. Twice he’s seen you head outside to check the mail. Three times, he’s seen you tell Amanda to have a nice day. So many little counters are running in his head. It’s all filled up with you, and you alone.
You’re everything in the world to him. You’re you. You’re the one who stuck with the hot mess he was all throughout college, and he hasn’t lost an ounce of his affection. As a matter of fact, he gained it. Even since you moved into the little cul de sac, he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about you. He admitted to himself in college that he loves you. Now, he’s come to terms with the fact that he adores you in every possible fashion.
A switch had been flipped inside him. A switch that he never thought anyone would manage to flip. He’s turned away from focusing on exercise and coaching the twins. He’s been distracted with you. “When should I ask them out?” “Do they feel the same about me?” “Is it normal to be this invested in them?”
His workaholic attitude has been stripped away from him. melted off of his brain like it was nothing. It was nothing. You are everything.
Now he sees you again.
It’s the middle of the night, and someone had pulled up to the front of your house.
You went with him. WHY did you go with him? Are you two in a secret relationship? Is he hitting on you?
No matter what the cost, Craig would make you hate Robert with every fiber of your being. He would make you hate everyone else in the universe if it meant he would have your undivided attention and love.
He loves you, and he’s not letting go of that fact.

One of the first steps I tell my Challengers is to set up 1-3 healthy goals to work on during the month. You might not be able to achieve those goals in the next 30 days but you can definitely work “towards” achieving them. For example, a great beginning goal is to drink more water and less caffeinated/sugary drinks.
Second step is to form a plan to achieve this goals. Because you can have a goal all year long but if you don’t have a way to “enforce” it, what’s the point??? For example using the goal above, if you’re a person who doesn’t drink any water at all, but you drink 8 sodas, coffees, juices, etc, then you could start on day one drinking 1 water and only 7 of the others. Day two, 2 waters, and 6 of the others, and so forth. This not only saves you from having a major headache from quitting altogether but usually taking smaller steps works better for beginners.
While step 1 and step 2 are vital steps, step 3 is just as, if not more important, for a successful journey. And more times than not, not having a “WHY” is the reason so many people fail at their journeys.
Step 3: Create a “WHY”. A “why” is just that. Why did you begin this journey? I tell my challengers don’t give me b.s. answers such as “to lose weight” or “be skinny” or “to get healthy”. I want them to dig deep because this “WHY” is going to help carry them through those hard days. It’s going to help get them past those temptations. It’s going to help them climb over those plateaus. That’s no small feat. So you want your “WHY” to be strong! Examples of mine and some of my awesome Challengers have been these:
“I want to be able to fly on an airplane and know the seat belt will fit around me.”
“I want to be able to play with my kids without getting out of breath.”
“I want to be able to see my grand kids graduate.”
“I want to get off my blood pressure medications.”
“I want to be able to shop in the regular section of the clothes store.”
When you have these 3 things: Goals, A Plan, and A Why, you have set yourself up for a successful healthy journey. If there was ever a 4th item that you need, it would be a heart of commitment, discipline, patience, and grit to get you through. No one said living healthy was easy. But living unhealthy is not easy either. So which do you want to do?
The best decision of my life was when I made that decision 4 years ago to stop living unhealthy and start living healthy. It’s been a lot of small goals each month pushing forward little by little. Even after 4 years I’m still learning and perfecting it.
As you get healthier, you always have ways that you can challenge yourself but it does get easier! In fact, you’ll start loving it and craving it! I know, I wouldn’t have believe it either 4 years ago but it’s true! It just takes that one decision. That one first step and then the second, third, and fourth. One day at a time. One workout at a time. One meal at a time. Living the best you possibly can.
And you will have moments where you fail. We all do! That’s okay! Learn from them and push forward! We’re all in this together! <3
This was really hard to post, and I still haven’t posted it on my Instagram or Facebook! Here are my results with The 21 Day Fix. This is only 21 days, guys. You can do anything for 21 days, and trust me, the habits will stay!
This is what 9 pounds and 12.5 inches looks like.
But it’s actually so much more.
This is what “I’m-so-over-feeling-this-way” looks like. This is what waking up just a little earlier each day to work out for 30 minutes looks like. This is what getting closer to my goal looks like. This is what “I’m-tired-of-being-nervous-at-every-costume-fitting” looks like. This is what taking some time on Sundays to meal prep looks like. This is what a new found happiness looks like.
I’m starting another round with my own group of challengers tomorrow and will be doing another one in just a few weeks. Join us! I’m so grateful for the 21 Day Fix and what it’s done for me. I’ve tried pills, fasts, liquid diets, cleanses, literally every weird thing you can think of- and I finally put in the real work to get these results. It was SO SIMPLE, guys! If I can do it, anyone can. I’m so grateful for this program, all the support I received, and the chance that I have now to coach others in their journey. Thanks beachbodyhq for helping me take my life back.
