Eliminating Stress Under Stress
Copyright (c) 1994-1999 Wayne Pickering

Here's what you can do if you wake up and are not feeling too chipper, and you have a full day ahead of you. I try to get my thoughts focused on how grateful I am that I am physically able to get out of bed. As I've been in 23 countries I have seen the worst of the worst when it comes to those who are physically disabled ... leprosy ... spinal bifida … war wounds...

The next thing I try to do is focus on how many people in my audiences have told me what a difference I've made in their lives. Can you remember when you were hungry and you thought of a food you liked and your mouth started watering? Well, just the thought of it initiated the digestive process of saliva. If your thoughts can promote such a change in the body, think of what a good thought will do to give you a head start on the day when you're feeling sluggish with no pep! It is then that is seems easy for me to roll out of bed and thank God that I can.

Now, the next thing I always do is focus on getting a good walk in ... weather determining where to do the walking. The easiest form of exercise is walking outside in the fresh air!

If the weather is nice outside, start your walks at a military pace - 3 miles an hour (that's a mile in 20 minutes). Then get them to 4 miles an hour (that's a mile in 15 minutes). Then, ultimately, 5 miles an hour (that's a mile in 12 minutes). That might seem too difficult, but the record for the mile walk is 5 minutes and 47 seconds. So, 12 minutes per mile is very achievable ... and think of the oxygen you're getting to your brain for better clarity. And the walk helps to increase the mitochondria (energy portion of the cell) … hence, lots more energy and you'll feel so much better. Aerobic means with oxygen ... anaerobic means without oxygen. Do your exercises to where you feel great. There's nothing to support that we should feel miserable after we exercise ... Have Fun!

But you're in a strange city and it's raining and miserably cold, so, what can you do? I always walk to the top of the hotel and walk each of the floors from top to bottom. Then I visit the exercise room now that I'm warmed up. I tend to do all my hard training when I'm home and just do maintenance while I'm on the road.

From Daytona Beach, FL ... This is Wayne Pickering reminding you that you are very special and the envy of billions of people on this planet. So treat yourself to the best of health ... you deserve it.
