Fitness apps in your phone or tablet

a

Howdy friends! Today’s been a busy day! Reading and jogging took over my time and my mind. I explored some new places of my town that I didn’t even know they existed! unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me, so photos will be taken the next time I’ll visit the place and show you in a couple of weeks.

I wanted today’s post to be brief and useful (as always), so I thought to give you a short list of apps that help you work out at home, my absolute favorite!

Ready? Here we go..

  • 7 minutes work out: The best app that keeps you in shape in only 7 minutes per day and trust me it works!
  • All-in-Yoga: For Yoga lovers, like myself, it contains over 300 positions 45 programmes to choose depending on your needs and it costs $3.99.
  • WorkoutTV: The ultimate app that gives you a wide variety in training to choose and it’s absolutely necessary!

I believe that’s enough for one day. Try them out and let me know what you think and if they work for you as good as they work on me. Kisses until next time!

Know when to sleep to wake up on time!

sleepparalysis

Hello beautiful and amazing people! Today it’s Easter here in Greece and most of us are celebrating in a pretty traditional way, eating lamp, reg eggs and weird food like kokoreci and mayiritsa. Easter is a family holiday, where we all gather together, eat, laugh and gossip! Usually people start coming to our house early in the morning and I have to be awake to welcome them, so going to bed on time is important, as I have to be fresh and energetic for the next day. So, knowing what time is best for going to bed in order to wake up in time and restless would be really helpful.

FOr that reason I would like to share with you my big discovery on the subject of sleeping. As I was wondering through stumbleupon if came across this amazing app, called sleepyti.meIt is as easy as this: You set the time you wanna be up and it shows you the best time to go to bed. Peace of cake in a simple preface.

Now that you know all about it go check it out, like I do and lemme know in the comments if it worked for you!

Cheers! 🙂

Radical Quote #30

Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too!

Be a champion in only 2 minutes!

Yup, that’s right! You can change the way you feel in such a short amount of time. According to Amy Cuddy‘s research our posture is not only an expression of our mood and feeling, but it can also work the other way round. What I mean is that it can actually affect the way we feel and think about ourselves.

It is a fact that body language is all about communication and even small gestures can make a difference. Social scientists have spent significant time on researching the non-verbal exchanging messages between people. “How we judge others, how they judge us and what the outcomes are”. However, the most important thing that we often forget or neglect to consider is how our own non-verbal signals affect us, our thoughts, our feelings and our physiology.

When we feel powerful and full of pride we expand our body and extend our chest forward. Also, in cases of victory we open our hands wide in the air, forming a “V”. On the other hand, when we feel unconfident and powerless we tend to crawl up, shrink, grunge and avoid getting close to other people.

Amy Cuddy gave the most inspirational TED talk on the subject and explained in details how our body can change our mind and not only the other way round. So, the results of her research are the following:

If you want to feel more powerful all you need to do is take a power pose for 2 minutes. And by power pose I mean something like this:

high-power-poses

It can drastically and immediately boost your self-esteem and put your mind in a state of victory. It is a simple and it really works!

From me have a powerful Sunday and let me know if you tried it and if power poses worked for you. They certainly worked for me!

Web-comics that can lift your mood up!

First of all I wanna apologise for being late! I was in a comic convention in Athens the whole weekend and I just got back to my hometown. Due to this today’s post is gonna be all about comics that you can freely read from your pc. Here we go.

1. Girls With Slingshots. The artist Danielle Corsetto does an amazing job narrating the daily adventures of a group of young girls and their friends. What makes it so special is her humourous approach of everyday issues on employment, relationships and sexuality.

2. Nimona. Noelle Stevenson is a unique artist who created the story of Nimona, a shape-shifter who lives in medieval ages and serves (and also being served) by a dark scientist – knight, under the name Blackheart. Together they try to save the city, while Nimona’s secrets about her origins are about to be revealed.

3. Zen Pencils. The talented artist Gavin Aung Than quitted his day job a couple of years ago to be devoted exclusively at his web comic, where he pictures events from the lives of great men and women so he inspire and encourage others to follow their passion and find fulfillment. It will sure boost your esteem and positivity.

That’s all for today, let me know if you liked the comics and if you know more worth-reading web comics! See you next time!
