Tony Scarborough was the first ever guest on Rebooted Body, all the back on RB001 in April 2013. And those challenges are precisely why I invited him to be the first ever in-studio guest---to talk about healthy living in the real world. Last week I did some equipment upgrades which also gave me the capability of having an in-studio guest (versus recording everything over Skype). Not only do we talk about the challenges that Tony has faced (so you can hear how he has worked to overcome them), we talk about the politics of health and how to win even though the deck is stacked against you.
While gluten gets all the attention these days, a potentially more problematic group of foods is creeping into our bodies and wreaking havoc.

It doesn't hurt, but my legs fall asleep really fast, so I just sit regularly when I meditate. It doesn't have to be perfect either, just trying over time, maybe from a chair at first, to standing just a minute here and there will gradually improve you in unexpected ways. Mentally, in wu ji, the practitioner empties their mind, filling themselves with the classic chinese concept of void, or nothingness.
A handy side note is that one of the skills a person is eventually able to develop using wu ji is the ability to 'listen' to their own bodies. Esoteric stuff aside, there are even Harvord studies out there that indicate beginning taiji even at advanced age, in most conditions improves muscle strength, flexibility, mental health, even bone density (somehow, I dunno how). Fitness experts have been promoting the benefits of early morning workouts since Richard Simmons started bouncing around in Lycra tights. Early morning workouts are a popular choice, especially when you know how to best work them. People often find that mornings are great for longer endurance workouts as the heart rate is naturally lower, which means you can tolerate more before the body (and mind) asks to quit. I am an early morning workout girl mostly because I like to trick my body into exercise before my brain wakes up enough to interfere!
The most important life lesson I learned was trying something three times (maybe even four times) before you stop trying and  move on. As part of the original monastery training, a monk didn’t answer direct questions from a student unless it was a well thought-out question. They did this because they were preparing a student to deal effectively with problems in the real world. I traveled to South Korea one time, and I found it fascinating how much you have to rely on your intuition when you don’t speak the native language of a country.
In life, whenever we try new things, we have to go into new places with only a small amount of information.
When I started doing meditation, I began to build separation from this egoistical mind, which is consistently making these comparisons.
That’s what happens when we meditate: We separate from the part of ourselves that dwells on comparisons, and start learning to live a life that isn’t driven by our egos.
For example, when I got to his house to train, he’d make me wait for a minimum of a half-hour, sometimes longer. Keep in mind, it’s not like I could call him; I don’t think the guy ever turned his cell phone on. But after a few years of this, it never bothered me; and not only that, it spread to every area of my life. When you let go of your ego needs, it’s easier to accept and even benefit from whatever comes at you.
By  creating happiness inside, he was able to increase that emotional state by spreading it to others. We must cultivate happiness from within, and work to spread it around to everyone we interact with.
The practice comes with a myriad of well-publicized health benefits including increased concentration, decreased anxiety, and a general feeling of happiness. This is unfortunate, and a possible reason is that many beginners do not begin with a mindset needed to make the practice sustainable. You will only get to the next level in meditation by setting aside specific time (preferably two times a day) to be still. Breathing deep slows the heart rate, relaxes the muscles, focuses the mind and is an ideal way to begin practice. This is very common for beginners as we think “hey, what am I doing here” or “why can’t I just quiet my damn mind already”.
Although many of us think of effective meditation as a Yogi sitting cross-legged beneath a Bonzi tree, beginners should be more experimental and try different types of meditation. A great practice for beginning meditators is to take notice of the body when a meditative state starts to take hold. Preferably an instructional guide AND one that describes the benefits of deep meditative states. Meditation is a life-long practice, and you will benefit most by NOT examining the results of your daily practice.
Finding your breath and “being present” while not in formal practice is a wonderful way to evolve your meditation habits. For beginning meditators, the slightest physical movements can transform a meditative practice from one of frustration to one of renewal.
Meditating with a partner or loved one can have many wonderful benefits, and can improve your practice. Without a doubt, early morning is an ideal time to practice: it is quieter, your mind is not filled with the usual clutter, and there is less chance you will be disturbed. Once your practice is through, spend 2-3 minutes feeling appreciative of the opportunity to practice and your mind’s ability to focus.
Meditation is hard work, and you will inevitably come to a point where it seemingly does not fit into the picture anymore.

I’ve also offered a lot of insight as to why you might still be struggling with sugar cravings, despite your best efforts to break free. We currently have clients in over 26 countries around the world and many of them have told us point blank that this is the best investment theya€™ve ever made in themselves.
Meditation works best for laying down at home or finding a peaceful setting in the country and sitting on a log or a patch of grass.

Even someone with no physical limitations to speak of will find one position more comfortable than another.
It mentions positions and getting comfortable in general as well as tips for focussing and getting the most out of your meditation practices. The idea is to align the posture and spine strait, from a tucked tailbone to a raised head with slightly tucked chin, knees slightly bent with weight more so on the balls of the feet than heels.
By doing so, the person lets everything go and invites in the energy and consciousness of the universe. In today’s fast paced world, we are too busy to bother with un-progressive exercise regimes and results that fail to impress healthy lifestyle. If you don’t know when your body performs best, you’ll find yourself jumping between workouts without consistency – sometimes being able to sweat yourself silly and push personal limits, while other times you can’t wait until it’s over.
Morning is when muscles are at their stiffest, therefore warming up takes longer due to your core temperature being lowest. The brain underestimates how long you have been training because the core temperature stays cooler, and perception of how intense you are training can become dulled. Also, later in the day the excuses tend to stack up and finding time becomes almost impossible. A compassionate physician and practicing Buddhist referred me to a Taoist monk who specialized in meditation and martial arts. Also, this monk taught me that, even after multiple tries, you should work on different angles to approach things that are difficult.
I remember one instance, I had trouble explaining to the cab driver where my hotel was, and he didn’t speak English. For example, at first it was difficult to calm down; but if you stick with it, its gets easier and easier. I  compared myself to other  salesmen and would blame myself because I wasn’t making as much money as them. At the time, I hated this part of the training, but now I think it was the most important life lesson. You’re constantly worrying, thinking that people probably think you’re a loser because you’re sitting by yourself.
Think about all the fears that we have conjured up in our minds that stop us from being truly happy.
Additionally, stretching starts the process of “going inward” and brings added attention to the body. The art of focusing your attention to a single point is hard work, and you have to be purposefully engaged! Once the mind quiets, put all your attention to the feet and then slowly move your way up the body (include your internal organs).
If you have it in the back of your mind that the phone might ring, your kids might wake, or your coffee pot might whistle than you will not be able to attain a state of deep relaxation. These adjustments may be barely noticeable to an observer, but they can mean everything for your practice. Lighting a candle and using it as your point of focus allows you to strengthen your attention with a visual cue. However, it is necessary to make sure that you set agreed-upon ground rules before you begin! THIS is when you need your practice the most and I recommend you go back to the book(s) or the CD’s you listened to and become re-invigorated with the practice. Work with what you have, #8 is just a nice suggestion, you can meditate in a warzone if you so chose.
I was slacking and needed something and this article was exactly how I learned and it's amazing to me as I was searching, here it is.
Read MoreWisdom QuotesShort quotes to brighten your day - Sometimes all it takes are a few words to change your life. The worst aspect of this discussion was that I felt people were being dismissive of an infographic that was making some very relevant points.
I also gave clear examples of how perfectionism is destructive to your health and happiness. This is why I’ve dedicated much of my work to the psychology of behavior modification. If it sounds uncomfortable it's because many of us have terrible posture amd it takes some getting used to. You may remember stressful times in your life you repressed and need to truely face to move on and not just recover but grow physically and spiritually.
Some practitioners spend a dozen years or more practicing the same set of moves to try to truely understand what experiences and personal awakenings they have (gaining the health benefits the whole time of course). I picked out maybe 5-7 poses to do a routine, but haven't done them lately, because the book is in storage.
You will feel tighter and less flexible than later on in the day, as you have just been sleeping for eight hours. Try a jolt of java before your morning workout – new studies show that caffeine delays the brains perception of feeling fatigue. I was born and raised in the Northeast and currently live in the great state of Pennsylvania.
I ended up  healing myself of anxiety and stomach issues by doing meditation, and went on a great  journey of self-discovery. So I had to get out of the cab and ask several people until I could find someone to tell the cab driver in Korean how to get to my hotel. So I’d usually be sitting in the restaurant by myself fumbling with my phone, acting like I was texting someone, while worrying about what everyone at the restaurant was thinking about me.
I never get agitated anymore when I have to wait in a long line or when someone cuts me off on the highway.
Robert is currently writing a book on meditation to make it more accessible for stress relief, health & happiness. Chances are that losing the ability to focus on meditation is parallel with your inability to focus in other areas of your life!
Of course if you sit for at least that small amount of time, you are bound to sit for at least a minute, which turns into 2 minutes, then 5, then 10 minutes and so on.Making any kind of daily effort is very rewarding, the hardest part is getting there in the first place.
But we also understand that there are things you just can’t get from food anymore due to our modern environment.
Don'tA justA listen to the podcast---there's so much more available for you so come dive in! If you’re looking for a fast, 20 minute fat burning workout to start adding in one to two times a week, Tabata sprinting is our top recommendation. Nothing unusual either with reaching new levels of understanding and using that to begin from scratch once again and find entirely new meanings to the moves. If hauling yourself out of bed before the sun rises is more shock to your system than it’s worth, find another time in the day to exercise, motivation has little to do with it!
The series of mental and physical ups and downs that repeat every 24 hours (circadian rhythms) influence your athletic performance and level of energy. Failure to warm up aerobically for at least ten to fifteen minutes before strenuous physical activity (such as fast running) could result in serious injury, from pulled quadriceps and hamstrings, through to tripping up on obstacles due to being at more clumsy in the early hours. When I started to do meditation, I began to identify my ego and was able to build separation from it.
The evolutionary use for depression and some key takeaways about the root cause of depression. Additionally, the risks of heart attack are forty percent higher, and risks of having a stroke is almost twice as likely compared with the rest of the day, according to a study published in Women’s Health Magazine. How many times do you have to call or email someone to get something done in the real world? Hopefully I go off-speech better than Joe Biden does—email me and let me know what you think. Hopefully I go off-speech better than Joe Biden does---email me and let me know what you think.
Bottom line – if you are going to train in the morning, warm up like your life depended on it!
As a runner, I have to second your advice to make sure to warm up slowly though while muscles are still stiff from a night of rest. Today, this humanitarian, spiritual leader inspires one of the world's largest volunteer-run NGOs. I used to skip the warm up, until I injured myself–and that’s a horrible way to learn this lesson!
