PLEASE WATCH THIS MOVIE.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, watch this as soon as you can. Not because it’s a good movie, but because it sends an incredible message. We are all a part of saving our world, it’s in everything we do every day. Everyone is happy complacently waiting for the end of the world because most of us are too lazy to do the little things that only take a little effort every day. But that’s a tiny sacrifice to make for the bigger picture. Share hope, creativity and inspiration. Recycle, live selflessly, protect the planet that gave us life. We are the #peopleoftomorrow. Make the future happen.

Ladies, we need to learn to commit to loving and respecting ourselves. A man learns how to treat a woman based on how she treats herself. Make sure you are always carrying yourself in a manner worthy of dignity and respect. 👑💎✨ #motivation #quote #quoteoftheday #dailyquotes #lifequotes #dearladies #selfrespect #values #selflove #loveyourself #realtalk #truth #lifestyle #livewell #setanexample #personalgrowth #lifecoach #lifelessons #womenempowerment #womenempoweringwomen #womenwhoinspire #wordstoliveby #wordsofwisdom

Project Live Love!
#LiveWell
Today I am embarking on a new challenge! I will be in the heart of Atlanta working with the homeless and less fortunate, helping to meet several of their needs such as prepping and serving food, free hair cuts, “call home” stations, handing out personal care kits and SEVERAL other helpful things!
I will not be alone, as several other volunteers will be participating in living the love!
I feel with the amount of reach and impact I have with my blog, House Of Alexzander, it is very important to be an example and set the bar for the future. By helping out today I hope to not only better other peoples lives, but also inspire someone else to do the same. Being able to change and impact someone’s life in a positive way is the most rewarding thing. I feel its one thing to work a job and get paid, but it can be a life changing experience to work for the sheer simple goal of showing love to someone who needs it and is willing to receive it!
Be sure to check out the Project Live Love website to find out more about what I’ll be doing today to give back to my community, and even how you from home can help!

Since most of my college expenses are paid out of pocket I need your help to raise at least $1,200 to attend a Street Photography Workshop in Los Angeles, CA held by world renown street photographer, Eric Kim. This will cover the cost for the workshop tuition as well as the airline and hotel accommodation cost.

It would mean a great deal to me to go and attend this workshop to gain the knowledge and get valuable, once in a lifetime experience that this opportunity has to offer. Please reblog and share this post! Anything that you donate will surely help me reach my goal!

5 Overlooked Causes Of Hunger

Feeling famished on your diet? If so, you have probably considered boosting your fiber intake, adding protein, drinking plenty of water, and other classic strategies to help combat hunger. But what if these strategies fail you? What do you do when you still have a hankering so intense, you struggle to focus on anything else? That’s when you need to take a look at your lifestyle and assess whether any of the following 5 issues may come into play…

1. EXCESSIVE LOW-LEVEL CARDIO: Multiple studies in recent years have suggested that cardiovascular exercise is an effective way to suppress and manage hunger. Once recent study suggested that appetite can be better controlled by exercise than by simple restraint-take note, dieters who struggle to say “no!” But if you’re chained to the cardio machines for hours on end at a moderate intensity, it could send your hunger soaring. Of course, not all cardio is the same. If you find yourself racing for the bakery post-cardio, consider mixing cross-training into your routine. 

2. LACK OF SLEEP: It’s no secret that deprivation can damage your workout performance and make for a miserable recovery period, but it may also influence how well you can stick to your diet plan. A single night of sleep deprivation causes hunger levels and appetite-stimulating ghrelin levels to rise drastically. There’s a simple relationship: The less you sleep, the more you put yourself at risk for uncontrollable hunger. You probably don’t need an academic study to tell you that if you’re feeling tired and cranky after a bad night’s sleep, it’s going to be hard to stay positive about a diet. 

3. THE “SEE-FOOD” DIET: Speaking of temptation, a growing body of research suggests that exposure to delicious food increases cravings. Big surprise, right? The food you see in pictures, on TV/Internet commercials, or on your coworker’s desk can create a feeling of hunger in you. Smell is another powerful hunger stimulant. If you walk into a room filled with the aroma of delicious food, don’t be surprised if your stomach starts rumbling. It’s almost impossible to totally shield yourself from hunger-spiking “food porn,” but if you’re feeling famished, it’s probably a good idea to try. One recent study found that people who struggled with weight control in the past are especially susceptible to the temptation brought on by exposure to food. If that describes you, do your best to build a wall around you!

4. TIME OF DAY: Most of us have been conditioned to grow hungry at the typical meal times: in the morning after waking up, at midday, and in the early evening. If you’ve switched over to a higher frequency meal plan, don’t be surprised if you still experience some hunger when those old meal times hit. This may be especially acute if those around you are eating, since hunger can be socially triggered. If nostalgia for those 3-square-meals-per-day impacts your ability to stick with your diet, then you may want to consider being flexible about your meal times and moving at least a couple of them in-line with the traditional times. Your body will probably catch up to your new system with time, but you might feel a powerful hankering until it does!

5. DRINKING YOUR FOOD: High-protein, low-carb diets have been shown to help control hunger and increase feelings of post-meal satisfaction, but when it comes to suppressing hunger, how you get that protein still matters. If your shaker bottle has taken the place of your knife and fork, take note: A pair recent studies at the Nutrim School of Nutrition found that solid protein meals are more effective in suppressing hunger than similar liquid protein meals. So, when those supplements may help you to reach your fitness goals, don’t forget that they’re supplementing food!
