Start Your Day With These Six Movements

Start Your Day (with these six movements)As I’ve gotten older, I realize that I’m not the limber leopard that I once was.  No longer do I spryly jump out of bed physically and mentally ready to chase the day.  It takes time to ease into the day, especially when it comes to my physical body.  My joints are little more stiff, and my muscles are a little tighter.

I have a funny feeling that you know what I’m talking about.  That’s why I wanted to share 6 simple movements that I do to start my day – after having my first trusty Cup o’ Joe, of course.

1. Reach for the Stars.  One arm at a time, reach as high as you can toward the ceiling.  Reach slowly and deliberately, and as you reach, let your eyes follow your fingertips.  [Repeat 5 – 10 times on each side.]

2. Reach Over the Top.  One arm at a time, reach as high as you can overhead and bend to the opposite side.  In other words, “reach for the stars” with your right hand, then bend to the left, reaching as far as you can.  It’s basically a side-bend with an overhead reach.  [Repeat 5 – 10 times on each side.]

3. Rotate and Reach.  One arm at a time, rotate and reach as far as you can to your opposite side.  For example, reach with your right hand as far as you can to the left at shoulder height, rotating your shoulders at the same time.  Again, this movement is to be done slowly and deliberately, holding for a second at the peak of your reach.  [Repeat 5 – 10 times.]

4. Touch Your Toes. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill “touch your toes” movement.  Instead of just bending down at the hips or back, I want you to reach for your toes by squatting.  Even if you can only reach to knee-height, that’s okay.  Any and all movement is good.  [Repeat 10 – 20 times.]

5. Touch Your Other Toe.  The only differences between this movement and the previous is that you’re going to reach one hand at a time to your opposite foot.  For instance, as you squat, you’ll reach your right hand to your left foot (or knee).  Then, on your next squat, you’ll reach your left hand to your right foot (or knee).  [Repeat 5 – 10 times on each side.]

6. Touch Your Heel.  Maybe you’re seeing a pattern develop.  This will be similar to the previous movement, except you’ll be reaching to the heel on the same side as your hand.  For example, as you squat, reach your right hand toward your right heel (or the back of your knee).  Then, on your next squat, reach your left hand toward your left heel (or the back of your knee).  [Repeat 5 – 10 times on each side.]

Start your day with these six movements, and you’ll prep your body to win the day!

To You,
Change That Up!

What Emergency...Good morning.
Loving this market isn’t the right thing to do to borrow words from the song “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac.
It seems like many parts are moving in different directions and on Thursday, so did the major market indices as the Dow was the hardest hit followed by the S&P 500 as the Nasdaq hit a new all-time high.  One thing about divergences, they snap back, but the only question is which direction?

Now here’s the rest of the news:

“Heads, Gold Wins: Tails, Gold Doesn’t Lose” –Jim Rickards
Jim analyzes gold’s recent history and concluded that, if we don’t understand gold’s price, then we’re asking the wrong questions.  Jim thinks buying gold is a no-lose proposition…

How To Shift Your LIMITING BELIEFS Around Money…

You may be blocking income from flowing in due to mindset.  To quote Ray Higdon, “Read Stories.”

“Read stories of those who overcame tough obstacles with limited financial resources and pay notice to some of their habits and patterns to adapt into your daily routine.”

Although with more money you do have more choices; it has nothing to do with money.  What is im-portant to understand is that it’s your choice … the compounding of those things you choose through-out your journey.  In reading articles, stories, books, biographies, etcetera, we often see ‘just how lucky we are’.  Another great change: start hanging around different people … people who make different levels of income and are in different professions.  Richer people can have various personalities … just like poorer people.  Start getting yourself in different situations where you’re around people of money and see how they operate.

As a small boy, it was pointed-out to me: Money does make you a good or bad person … money just makes you more of what you were!  [more good OR more evil]

Two more quick thoughts! … on this Wealth Wednesday:

  1. Never walk away from wealth … however small.  By stopping to pick-up that ‘nickel on the ground’, you are declaring to the Universe ‘I want more money attracted in-to-my-life!’
  2. Seeming a contradiction, don’t be afraid to give ‘some of your money away’.  Tips and gratuities instantly come to mind.  So is it to give outright to others.  [REMEMBER: money doesn’t make you morally superior … after-all who picked up the nickel?]

Give-a-penny … Take-a-penny,  😉

Today is a great day!  Not surprising … as-pretty-much is going our way.

Caryl and I slipped away to “our most favorite place on Earth.”  We have many such places, but Kimberly, British Columbia — is one of them.  (Don’t let the picture fool you, as we were still traveling to Kimberly, at this time!)  Although, it is a might quiet and peaceful.

Mid-week trips-away are not really vacations — very enjoyable … just-the-same.  Employer’s have mixed feelings about “days-away-from-work.”  You might not want/have to come back.  (Ever thought of starting a business?  Me too…)


Come From Aways, Do You?

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
