If You Smoke…STOP!

Friday, April 20th, 2012

We al know this…smoking is bad for us. You can’t be healthy and smoke.  I don’t care how many times a week you go to the gym, it doesn’t matter how much cardio you do, being able to swim like Michael Phelps won’t help you if you smoke.  But, even though we know it, there are still millions of people doing it every single day.  There are actualy some people who have a 2 to 3 pack a day habit.  That is 40 to 60 cigarettes a day! 

Let’s break that down.  One cigarette takes on average about 8 to 10 minutes to smoke (from lighting it, to smoking it down to the filter).  On the low end that is 320 minutes of smoking a day OR 5.3 hours!  On the high end you’re looking at 600 minutes of smoking OR 10 full hours dedicating your time to a deadly addiction. 

I’m not even mentioning the time it takes to leave your desk, walk outside of your office (smoking at your desk went out of fashion in the late 80’s – about the same time that Miami Vice went off the air (remember Don Johnson’s character, Sonny Crockett was always smoking at his desk) and find a place at least 25 feet away from the building (that is the law here in Washington State) and then light up. 

Even on just a common sense level we know that that this is insanity.  How can we be productive when we’re having to walk away from our work two or three (or more times) a day to go outside for a cigarette.  I’m not even talking about having to be stuck out in miserable weather conditions to “enjoy” something that is wreaking havoc on your body.  Think about this…the time that is spent smoking is making you less productive.  It’s probably even keeping you from reaching your goals.  Let’ say that it’s 4 times a day that you smoke outside of your office.  You smoke once before work, twice during work, and once after work…that’s about 1 hour a day that you gave away to cigarettes that you can’t get back. 

What if you took that extra hour to spend with your spouse or children?  What if you spent that time working towards fulfilling the dream you’ve always had of owning your own business?  How much closer would you be towards achieving your goals?

How much better off would you be financially if you stopped smoking?  In 2011 the cheapest place you could purchase a pack of cigarettes at was in West Virginia for $4.74 a pack.  The most expensive place was New York at $11.90 a pack!  That’s for 20 cigarettes that are literally robbing you of your health, time, and now money. 

Again, let’s crunch some numbers…starting on the low end…let’s say that you only smoke 1 pack a day and you lived in West Virginia in 2011 (remember, the prices are always going up) you would be paying $142.20 a month just for the privellege of smoking.  If you lived in New York City in 2011 and you smoked 3 packs a day (it can be stressful living in the big city) it would cost you $1,071.00 a month for the privellege to smoke!  That’s $12,852.00 a year!!! 

There is good news though.  First, it really isn’t your fault.  This “product” has millions upon millions of dollars behind it that goes into advertising that makes you want to smoke, some of the greatest research minds in the world have forumlated the product to make you addicted.  To learn more about “It’s Not Your Fault” click here.

The other good news is that there is help.  You can use “Guided Meditation” or “Clinical Hypnotherapy“.  If you live in Europe “click here” for a great resource.

I know that quitting smoking isn’t easy…but it can be done.  Do it for yourself, your family, and your finances.  I wish you great success in achieving your goal of being smoke free.

Yours In Health!

Walking Is For The Cool

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Okay, so maybe the title to this blog is an obscure reference to a song that only one of our loyal readers,  Michael Walker from Thorne Smith Blog might get…but it’s true, walking is a cool thing to do.  As I’m writing this thoughts of the late, great comedian Bill Hicks come into my mind and if he were alive I’m sure he would be laughing at this post and saying, “Walking, isn’t that pretty standard in a bi-ped?  Left foot, right foot, repeat.”  

Yes, walking is pretty standard in a bi-ped but you’d be amazed at how many people try to get out of doing it.  People will take an elevator (to go up one floor), they will take an escalator to avoid walking up stairs, and they will loop around the parking lot of the grocery store for five minutes (or longer)  just to park a couple of feet closer to the entrance.   

Actually, the grocery store is a great place to start getting in some walking.  It’s as simple as this…take the parking spot that is as far away from the entrance to the store as possible.  Do this wherever your errands take you to…the mall, hairstylist, the bank, etc.  Before you know you will be getting in more and more walking. 

At the grocery store one way that you can easily get in more walking is by returning your shopping cart.  Never just leave your shopping cart next to your car and drive off.  Take the extra two minutes (or less) to return your cart back into the store…you’ll be doing your body good.

Please Return Your Shopping Cart For Better Health

Dr. Noah Mckay – 21st Century Genius

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Dr. Noah Mckay, M.D., was taken from us far too early.  He had so much more to teach us and we had a great deal more to learn from him.  I truly believe that Dr. Mckay was on par with Einstein, Tesla, and Newton.  He was able to extend his life by 20 years.  20 great years.  Not 20 years of sitting in a rocking chair or crawled up on a sofa…20 years of traveling the world, living life, experiencing love and happiness.  He did it by tapping into the power of Quantum Physics for health, happiness, and longevity.  Here is a video of Dr. Noah in action.  I hope that you will enjoy it.

Yours In Health!
