How Does Bliss Reduce Stress Relieve Stress and Promote Relaxation?

Between work responsibilities, raising a family, and keeping up with social activities, most people are stressed out. Stress can have an impact on all aspects of your life as it can make you cranky, irritable, and it can cause health problems.

There are many ways people seek to relieve stress including:

  • Practice yoga.
  • Meditate.
  • Listen to music.
  • Take a hot bath.
  • Drink.

While drinking alcohol can be detrimental to your health, there are beverage companies who make drinks that claim to relieve stress. One of the drinks making this claim is Bliss Reduce Stress.

What is Bliss?

The manufacturer of this drink is Neuro, which produces a line of nutritional drinks, some of which qualify as dietary supplements that can help with various conditions. Along with Bliss Reduce Stress, they also make drinks that claim to boost energy levels, one that promotes sleep, and another that contains ingredients to help hydrate your body.

Bliss Ingredients

The ingredients in Bliss are what gives it the ability to reduce a person’s stress levels. Its list of ingredients includes:

  • L-Theanine
  • Vitamin D
  • Chamomile
  • Alpha GPC
  • Pomegranate
  • Acai
  • Blueberry

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is an amino acid that is found in both green and black teas. It is known for its ability to reduce stress, to help people relax, and to improve sleep. It works by altering some neurotransmitters to produce a calming effect and counteract the effects of the caffeine found in the teas.

Although the studies done on L-Theanine frequently used doses 10 to 20 times higher than in a cup of tea, they did result in several benefits. In a Japanese study with college students, researchers found that the students had reduced levels of anxiety and smaller increases in blood pressure when under physical and psychological stress than participants given placebos. In a Canadian study, there were improvements in sleep quality for boys with ADHD.

Vitamin D

Most people get adequate amounts of vitamin D by going outside, which is why this vitamin is known as the “sunshine vitamin.” To ensure you get an adequate amount of vitamin D, you should spend 10 to 15 minutes outside without wearing sunscreen. If you’re going to be outside longer than that, then apply sunscreen after the 15 minutes are up to protect your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.

Vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus to strengthen bones and teeth. It also supports the health of the nervous system and brain so they can function properly.

Alpha GPC

Alpha GPC is the shortened name for L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine, which is a natural choline found in the brain. It’s the result of the breakdown of a fatty acid found in soy and other plants. It can help improve memory and learning abilities because Alpha-GPC increases the levels of the chemical acetylcholine in the brain.

While it is a dietary supplement in the United States that enhances cognitive abilities, in Europe, it is prescribed to treat Alzheimer’s. Some of its other uses include treating other forms of dementia, strokes, and mini-strokes known as TIAs, or transient ischemic attacks.

Chamomile

Chamomile is an herb that has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. Most people in the US know it is found in tea that can relieve upset stomachs, but it can also promote relaxation and help people go to sleep.

Does Bliss Work?

Of course, most people want to know does Neuro Bliss Reduce Stress work to help people relax and reduce their stress levels? There have been a few studies with Bliss Reduce Stress and its predecessor Neuro Bliss, which have backed up claims that it helps with stress relief and improves concentration.

One such study was done at Swinburne University in Australia and results showed that it significantly reduced stress, there were reductions in cortisol levels, and there were shifts in brainwaves to the alpha spectrum, which produces a relaxed state of increased focus. Reducing cortisol levels is important because cortisol is known as the “stress hormone.”

Cortisol and Stress

When you experience high levels of stress, your body releases the hormone cortisol. Research has shown that high levels of cortisol can cause damage throughout the body. It can:

  • Interfere with learning and memorization.
  • Lower immunity.
  • Reduce bone density.
  • Cause weight gain.
  • Increase blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Cortisol can also make people susceptible to depression, mental illness, and lower life expectancy. Fortunately, the ingredients in Bliss Reduce Stress help to counteract some of these effects by strengthening bones, improving cognitive functions, and lowering stress to prevent the release of cortisol.

User Reviews

The results users of this drink get will vary, but their experiences can help others to decide whether to try the drink. Often the best place to read Bliss Reduce Stress drink reviews are on third-party sites that sell it, such as Amazon or Walmart.

Reviews on this site are usually from people who have bought and tried the drink, so they do not receive money to write reviews for it. These sites allow you to get real opinions from users of the drink so you can make your own decision about buying it.

You should pay close attention to the reviews as the star icons are not necessarily referring to the drink, but to the service from the site on which it was bought. So, when reading reviews, read them carefully so you can make a fair assessment of Bliss and not the website or seller of the drinks.

The Bliss drink is available in three flavors: tropical lychee, citrus berry, and white raspberry. Along with buying them from online retailers, they are available at many department, grocery, and convenience stores, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding them.

Most of the ingredients found in Bliss Reduce Stress are natural, and the product only contains 35 calories with nine grams of sugar. If you have a problem with stress, then you could try this drink to find out if it works for you in reducing stress and providing the relaxation you desire.

12 Ways to Avoid Distractions

Distractions are killing your productivity. Top Time management tips to stay focused. These time management strategies give you options to avoid and conquer distractions.

Has this happened to you? You go online to investigate a topic and you find yourself sucked into a vortex of interesting articles that no longer have anything to do with what you were researching…but you may need it another time. You made a quick call with a friend to clarify an appointment but they wouldn’t let you off the phone. You are working on a project and your project team is constantly coming in to ask you random questions. Getting things done can be a challenge with all the distractions that surround you on a day to day basis!

Here are 12 ways to combat distractions. All of these are time management tips you have heard but are likely forgetting and /or not applying. Maybe one or two are new for you and will give you a new perspective on blocking distractions and staying focused!

Handling distractions:

  1. Timers

Set timer to create a psychological marker. It makes it a game and put some urgency into your mind to get you to think faster on your feet to get things done more effectively and efficiently. You also can plan breaks in between each timed session giving you’re the reward for your focused attention.

It works! Check out the Pomodoro Technique for more structure around your timed daily blocks.

  1. Set deadlines

Setting deadlines is another urgency trick for our brain to help shift us into action. Without a deadline, it is easy to procrastinate and continue to push off the activity. A deadline makes the task a project and allows you to plan for completion. It will have the effect to get your more focused and block out distractions more easily.

  1. Turn off electronics

Duh. Your bells and whistles will distract you and interrupt your train of thought. This is the same as multi-tasking and has been proven as a big no-no for productivity. Depending on which study you read, the experts say it takes 23 minutes to get back your full attention on a project matter.

Plan the times you look at your devices and turn off the ringer.

  1. Schedule breaks

Breaks are an essential part of rejuvenation. How you manage your energy tells you whether you will make good use of the next hour or squander it away. When you allow yourself a short break to get up and take a walk, watch a short video or listen to some music, you are helping yourself be more focused on the time you are working. Without breaks, your threshold to keep your attention on one thing can be easily broken. Breaks are not lazy rather a productivity strategy. Einstein was an infamous napper and he seemed to be pretty focused and productive.

  1. Track distractions

Get a handle on your distractions by tracking them. I know it may seem annoying but record all the distractions you have for a week. You will be surprised at what you learn from this exercise and how much better you can avoid them when you realize where they are coming from.

Here is a free resource to track distractions http://p10app.com/distraction-tracking/

  1. Brain dump

David Allen is a big fan. Dump out all that you have in your head so you can be free to focus on the next activity. Give yourself 5 minutes before you end a block, leave a meeting or start something new and write down where you were, what is next and anything else you need to let go of. Evernote (https://evernote.com) is a great tool for that and has a great search engine to find it again.

  1. Get up earlier

You don’t have the time? Here is one way to make more time. Get up earlier and use the peace and quiet from the morning to get the most important things to you done first.

  1. Make a plan

When you have a plan for the day, you can be more focused on achieving it. It makes you more proactive versus getting caught up in whatever comes along. This sense of control keeps you more focused and more resistant to distractions.

  1. Connect to purpose and why important

When you are connecting to why something is important, this provides another psychology means to stay focused. You connect with its importance and stay on track.

  1. Clean up the clutter

Clutter creates distraction. Clean your desk before you leave and clear your head before you start the day and see how big the increase is in your ability to stay focused.

  1. Get more sleep

No “if’s”, “and’s” or “but’s”, sleep makes a difference in making us more resilient and more resistant to distractions. Most people stay up late doing nothing important. Use that time for true recharge. Watching TV, despite our excuses is not a productive recharge. If you find it hard to focus, give yourself another 45 minutes of sleep and see how that might add to your ability to focus. You won’t know until you try it. Top performers don’t say they will sleep wen they are dead!

  1. Say no

Practice saying no to people. If you are overloaded that in itself is causing a distraction. Look at your calendar and respectfully bow out of a few things to get your focus back.

It is only your responsibility to proactively block distractions so that your environment is productive. You have to protect your space and time because if you don’t manage your time, someone else will.

What is time management? Well, managing distractions is a subset of your time management efforts. Managing distractions is how you manage time. Staying focused during the time you have can be the most important time management skill.

It is time to build this new muscle and get one up on the distractions that are sabotaging your goals and your productivity.

Interview Bill Walsh | Quantum Productivity

I am so excited today and want to welcome you to our first episode.  You are here because you want more.  You want the knowledge, the skills, and the resources on how to achieve more in your life.  By this, I mean, have your cake and eat it too.  Health, love, money, and balance.  Take charge of your productivity will do more than inspire you.  It will open you up to a new perspective.  For our first show, we are going to talk about dramatic productivity growth, or quantum growth in your productivity.  We want to get as much out of life as possible.  It is my experience that quantum productivity occurs when we learn how to manage our energy vs. our time.  This radio program is dedicated to you gaining new insights and perspectives around the ten core elements of time and energy management.  We will be speaking with various authors to get their perspective on those areas.  It’s important to know that these areas are relevant to you individually but also your business.  Strategies are cross contextual.  Today, we are so honored to have Bill Walsh here to talk about his concepts.  He is CEO and founder of Business Coaching Venture Capital Firm Power Team International.  Bill hosts and speaks all over the world.  He loves to help people to understand specifically what it takes to build business successfully.  He is a venture capitalist accomplished author, speaker and radio personality.  Bill, I am so excited to have you here today.  Welcome.

B:  I am excited too.  Congratulations on your first show Penny.  Everyone listening, this is a show you want to plug into all of the time.  I know the quality of your work. 

P:  Thanks Bill.  I have seen your passion in helping people grow their business.  I would like you to share what really motivated you to get into self-development?

B:  I was about 14 years old I was around individuals where the parents would take their kids and go racing.  Certain parents had every weekend off.  They could leave on a Friday and come back late Sunday night.  They couldn’t worry about going to work, and they had extra money.  It was about quality time with quality people.  They owned their own time.  They told me you need to figure out what it takes to find something you are passionate about and you will live a life that only some people can dream of.

P:  I like what you said about owning their own time.  That is what take charge of your productivity is about.  Owning your time.  From watching other people’s parents you saw what you wanted for yourself.  We want to learn from the best.  Could you share what and who really influenced you the most?

Quantum productivityB:  My dad did.  He was an electrician and he obviously worked unbelievable hours.  He would put in x amount of hours and then get a check for that.  He also said to me, do what you love.  Whether you fail or not, is part of the story.  It will work out as long as you are serving people.  He was one of my first coaches.  Football, baseball.  Even though he worked during the day, he still coached.  As I got older, I selected mentors.  I looked at individuals that lived a life of quality and integrity of serving lots of people.  I figured out ways to get connected with those individuals.  People like Brian Tracy, Les Brown, John Grey, and I have been blessed with work with the sharpest people in the world.  By creating value first in their lives and then building an amazing relationship with them. 

P:  Mentors are so important.  To the listeners, who are your mentors?  I like how you said select those people to have as your mentors.  I want to encourage the listeners to make a note to select their mentors.  What characteristics do they want to aspire to?  What leaders do they want to follow?  So important. I want to ask you about your book.  You talked about the eleven obvious laws of business success.  Can you share what are these laws and uh, what inspired you to create these?

B:  Most of the laws are common sense.  It’s not that we don’t know these things, like serve others at a high level, or how important our time is, or how to understand our own value.  What happens is we get clouded.  People watch tv and it is designed to pollute your mind.  People thing garbage in and garbage stays.  When it stays, it pollutes.  Until you go back to the basics, mastering the mundane, most people like to get up early or go to bed late.  What if you were totally inspired, that is one of the big things I talk about in the book.  I believe motivation is a spark.  To start the juice flowing.  The problem is you can’t push people to do things.  It’s like pushing a rope.  It doesn’t work.  Inspiration is something that will pull you where you are going.  Imagine waking up so inspired about your life that you get pulled into your success.  What happens if you motivate a bunch of idiots, what do you have?

P:  A motivated bunch of idiots.

B:  They are all jumping around and not going anywhere.  Then the old self-doubt comes back in.  When you can truly inspire someone, they get pulled into their lives in a form of passion and purpose.  They know in their mind and heart where they are going.  That is what people find a powerful presence to succeed.  It comes from within.  Not the outside.  Those are some of the things I talk about.  It’s about common sense wrapped around in stories.  All of the stories you hear about are about 15 years in the making.

P:  I like how you said inspiration vs. motivation, I had an amazing mentor a number of years ago who said, he is not here to motivate me because the motivation comes from within.  He is here to take away any roadblocks that keep me from moving forward.  I thought is was an insightful way to look at motivation.  You have to motivate yourself. 

B:  You can motivate all you want but if you don’t educate, they are going to die.  What I have learned is that you don’t know something until you live it.  Once you live it, you can own it and know it.  I do believe that external motivation is never going to move you very far.  Internal inspiration will get you as far as you want to go in life. 

P:  Energy management.  It’s not just about the time.  So many people are focused on the time aspect on it.  They will get more productive through time.  But I believe it’s about the energy aspect of it.  Passion and purpose are two important elements that make up energy management.  What is your feel about that?

B:  I believe that energy is neutral.  People think money is evil or it doesn’t grow on trees.  I believe money equals energy.  When you provide more value, you are going to get more money.  Most people spend most of their life chasing money.  Usually those people stay broke.  If they are not financially broke, they are mentally broke.  I believe that everything is energy.  We are all energy.  Some people come into a room and they literally dim the lights.  Other people come into the room and it brightens up.  You can feel their presence, even when they are not present.  It’s not about staying away from negative people.  The universe will always give you more of what you don’t want.  If you focus on negative people, you will attract more negative people.   Where if you begin to focus on only spending time with inspiring powerful, high integrity, over the top people, that is what you will attract in your life. A friend said, when you let go of some of the old, you can make room for some of the new.  Its a great principal.  So many doors open up and new people come into your life.  They are the ones who deserve your quality time. 

P:  We are going to take a short break.

P:  Welcome Back.  We are about to get into the heart of the show of quantum productivity.  I like to ask everybody who is on my show this question.  How do you define productivity and why?

A:  What happens when you are not in the picture?  I believe that quantum productivity starts with how effective are you when you are not in the wave.  So often I tell people, we operate many times from a place of unconscious competence or incompetence or conscious incompetence.  I understand that the subconscious mind works while you sleep.  I share a process called ten before ten.  Every night you will write out the ten most important things you can do before ten the next morning to be the most profitable and productive things.  We don’t realize how powerful our mind is.  Our mind will work on things even while you are sleeping.  If you write them down, you will sleep better, sleep less and sleep deeper, and you will wake up with many of the answers you are looking for relating to the task you need to accomplish the next morning.  You may even learn how to delegate.  How to learn about the things you are good at and delegate the things that you suck at.  Stop doing the things that you truly suck at.  It sucks the life out of you.  It’s a double suck.  Once somebody can step into doing only the things they are great at, they are going to understand what quantum productivity looks like.  You will begin to see how everyone around you moves in slow motion.  You become an intuitive performer.  We build them.  You only operate from a place called unconscious competence.  You wake up and know exactly what you are supposed to be doing.  You step into the flow.  You see this in sports.  You watch athletes like Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and singers like Céline Dion.  They literally own that space they are in and they focus only on the things that they are great at. 

P:  Going back to energy.  When we are optimizing our energy by flow, getting into the place where we are most energetic.  Doing things that build our energy.  Not doing things that suck your energy.  I love the ten before ten.  Imagine, if you are getting ten of the most important things done before ten am.  How great do you feel? 

B:  Try this for fourteen days.  You will see your productivity will grow.  What else happens is that your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions and your actions become your habits.  Successful people consistently have successful habits.

P:  A habit requires a lot of energy.  I am still trying to do something that is not 100 percent ingrained into who I am.  This ten before ten starts out as a habit and then it should become part of who you are.  That is the step through into that flow. 

B:  You know when you are in flow.  Smooth incredible days.  What are the top three things you can do?  Most great CEO’s don’t do more than two or three things great.  The minimum wage for a millionaire is $524 an hour.  If you goal is to be a millionaire, are you doing things that are at that wage range. 

P:  I heard you say millionaires delegate everything.  From my experience in coaching with Tony Robbins and Chet Holmes, people learn right up front as we start to work together, that the strategies they had were great in getting them to where they are now, but they are not necessarily the right skill set they need to get to the next level.  How do you think people can really change their mind set to get into this flow more often?

B:  It starts with motivation and inspiration.  They don’t just find their motivation.  They start with a big vision and that vision will pull you to where you are going.  Like Starbucks.  Everything with this company was about being the biggest brand.  The world’s largest experience coffee place.  So much is about the power of focus.  Step into your vision.  I believe as children, we are born with great gifts.  Somewhere along the line, the wires get crossed where we are told we are dumb or stupid.  We are put into an educational program that is designed for these kids to fail.  In Chicago, less than fifty percent graduate from high school.  We have the best universities in the world.  At some point, we are polluting the minds of our kids to move them away from having that powerful vision.  It’s about committing and focusing and never quitting.

P:  Do you believe there is an x factor for quantum productivity?

B:  I think you have to realize we are not productive.  That we are not doing our greatest skill set.  People take jobs for their whole lives in positions that they can’t stand.  Shea Vaugne is one of my close friends.  Her son is Vince Vaughne.  I saw the movie Internship.  It didn’t get good reviews and it didn’t surprise me because anything that pushes people to step outside the box, those movies don’t work because many times we don’t like to see people do well.  We like to see people fail or get hurt.  The reason people watch the news is because they want to see people do worse than them.  A big part of the x factor is that everyone has to realize that it is possible.  Once you can go from realizing that oh, I am not sure to its possible.  That is what the movie was about.  What was possible?  The x factor is YOU.  You are the x factor.  Are you going to X yourself off of the screen or off of the game? 

P:  Tap into that vision.  Step into it.

B:  Everybody has their own set of green glasses.  If you wear these big coke bottle green glasses, the only thing you will see is green.  You will think everything is green even though people are telling you otherwise.  So, once you can remove the green glasses and really get a view of what is going on, its incredible how powerful your vision becomes. 

P:  Opening up new perspectives.  It’s time to take a break.

P:  Welcome back.  We are speaking about quantum productivity with Bill Walsh.  You mentioned the movie the Internship and that people are not excited about movies that talk about what is possible and what occurred to me is sometimes with movies that are inspirational like that, people are fearful of it bringing them to the edge of their comfort zone.  I think a lot of what hold people back from success is that coming up to the edge of the comfort zone, the fear factor.  Can you share some of your views around that?

B:  I think that fear is what leads to self-doubt.  Self-doubt is the number one killer of small business.  Once we fail a couple times at something, we decide to quit.  That is what kills SoHo’s or people in the marketing industry.  I wish they would tell people that the two equations for success is this:  persistence plus failure equals success.  So all of a sudden, if they can remove the fear, he is how you do it.  After years in business, with absolute faith there is very little room for fear.  Understanding how someone else has already has done this.  It means you are not the first person to do this.  Are you going to commit to your big vision or big dreams or are you just going to talk about it.  Rockefeller said as he got older he would stop listening to what people would say, he would watch what they do.  Fear is going to always be there.  The question is are you going to let fear or faith take over?  If you truly have faith in where you are going, you will go far.  What books do you read?  Who are the people you spend your time with?  I challenge you today, and you want to achieve big goals, with massive results, who is on your team?  Surround yourself with really smart people.

P:  In sports, if you want to get better, play better players.  That will help my game. 

B:  Watch how they are playing.  Are your fab 5 who inspire you and move you?  Or are you the smartest person in your group?  If you are the smartest, then you need a new group.  I am also a big believer in that imagination is the open gateway to all of your unlimited possibilities.  You are powerful.

P:  Look at imagination and visualization.  A strategy that successful people use.  Olympic sports or business success.  They talk about Michael Phelps and his visualization of him getting into the water and moving through.  Getting in that flow.  Standing and collecting the gold. There were studies that showed that people who were doing lay ups actually did the same as those who practiced constantly.  A learning mindset is important, what role do you think learning plays in our productivity?

B:  Knowledge is power but sometimes I would have ignorance on fire than knowledge on ice.  I have met very smart people who are broke and idiots who are wealthy.  Learning is paramount as long as you put the learning to use.  If you think because you have done all of the studies, that you will get it.  Learning is only one part of the process.  I can give you all of the books and tapes and videos on how to be great, but learning by itself can be dangerous.  Learning in combination with experience.  I believe that one of the greatest ways to learn something is to do it.

P:  The three most dangerous words out there is I know this.  Right?  I actually heard there was a study that showed that the brain actually shuts down from listening and bringing in new perspectives and insight when you go into that mode of I know this.  It’s important to be open. 

B:  From experience you learn, what you did right and what you did wrong.  Once you start to realize that nobody has all of the answers.  We all have tons to learn.  When you stop learning you stop living. 

P:  That learning mindset that really takes us to the next level. 

B:  What do you do that you work on to really step into your most powerful amazing presence.  I know you have so much to share.

P:  Tapping into a vision and passion.  I have always been an optimizer.  I started with technology and improving prophecies.  I moved to the mindset and how people think.  How to make things better.  I think the key is the learning.  I always want to keep myself in a perspective when I can look at something that doesn’t go the way I want it to saying, ok, what does that mean exactly.  How can I learn from this?  Steve Lindor taught me these four questions:  What does that mean and what else could that mean?  You look at the different perspectives and what can I learn from this?  How can I integrate this?  Then it’s about sharing with others.  I learned a lot in Switzerland and their culture. 

B:  With all of the inventions in technology we will get more productive.  What I recommend is that get all of your most productive things done first thing in the morning.  You now have the rest of the day to yourself. 

It’s time for our last break. 

Welcome Back.  Bill our listeners have gained some powerful new insights today.  Can you tell them how they can find out more about your programs and what you have to offer?

B:  Thanks for having me on.  If you love the show, share Penny’s show with everyone you know.  The world needs more Penny Zenkers.  To get more information on my programs ipowerteam.com you will find information about our Rainmaker Program, Business Success coarse, our Speaker Camps and our Masterminds.  I thought it would be cool to give out a free gift today.  About $200 audios, Cd’s and downloads and free tickets to our conferences that take place in Dallas, Miami, Boston, New York and LA.  EMVPsuccesspack.com  Go there on the website and put in the code 7777.  It will make the entire product free for all of the listeners here today.  It is a great gift for you and special thanks to Penny and all she does.  Anything that I can do to support what you are doing, just let me know.  I am one of your biggest fans. 

P:  Thank you and that’s incredible.  I know you are modest and you don’t want to talk about your programs in details.  I have a friend who just came back from your Rainmaker program.  She said it was incredible.  It helped her from start to finish on getting her business and business plan together.  Could you share a bit of information to our listeners who are entrepreneurs and want to tap into something or are just in need of some of your extra support? 

B:  I created a course called the Rainmaker Summit about 8 years ago.  I was a trader than real estate, then all kinds of companies as a consultant to help them grow, build and turn around their businesses.  Successfolio was created.  It is a business plan with an awesome website, great time management skills.  Become a great leader, have great systems and be accountable.  That course is called the Rainmaker Summit.  We now teach it 24 times a year all over the world.  We are looking for coaches and speakers to help piece these programs.  It is packed with two and half days of amazing content on launching, growing, and building your business with a whole year of follow up.  The entire program for you, your spouse and your kids, is under $3000.  We run a full private equity group who looks for companies to invest in.  We provide some of the best education in the world for business owners who are serious about creating and building a successful business around something you are great at and can serve lots of people.  If you want to learn more go to IPowerteam.com or watch the entire presentation right at rainmakersummit.com  Penny has some links on her site, you might be better off doing that.  There will be a special link on there as well as some more free gifts.  That is the best way to get more information.  I am really just here to serve you and all of your listeners. 

P:  You offer so much value and I have always been impressed with people I have talked to and the integrity I see myself directly from you.  I am attending your speaker’s camp in about a month.  I know some people who have gone through it that have raved about it because they have gone from not having that confidence to stand up what they are talking about to really being able to do that, in a way they can create a speech and also in a way they can get up and also sell their program.  To be able to inspire people from stage but also to enable them to continue that process of learning and taking it with them. 

B:  I created a speaker course because I was tired of the ones I saw out there.  It is a program called Done for You program.  You come for five days with me and we work on taking your passion, what you are great at, I will take that mold of what you already are and we have a done for you course for you.  We shoot your video, give a 90 minute presentation from selling on the stage.  What nobody else would do in the industry.  That is the neat part, we produce over 100 events a year around the world.  All different genres backgrounds.  It’s designed for someone who is very good at something and they know it serves lots of people, they are not being paid for it.  They would like to magnify their message.  Only 20 students per class.  Its $15,000 for the program.  When we finish, we own our own speakers bureau.  If we put you on a stage and you make $50,000 you send us a check for $5000.  Most speakers are great at speaker but not great at product creation, running an event, etc.  Some have a hard time getting bookings to speak.  Because of our contacts, I give you access to that.  It is without a doubt become a paramount course that people are on a waiting list to get into this program.

P: For those of you who chimed in late.  You can listen to the interview online.  Bill Walsh CEO Power Team International.  International speaker and overall just a good guy.  He walks the walk and talks the talk. 

Thank you Bill for being here. 

DOES NEURO BLISS REDUCE STRESS?

Stress is something that we all undergo at one point in our lives – whether it is school, work, family, or kids. For most, stress is prevalent in our everyday life. We live in a fast-paced society. Many people have tried the age-old cures for stress like exercise, eating healthy and meditation, but the truth is that we simply do not make the time for these things. We feel like we just don’t have the time. The very things we need to make everything work in our lives is the very thing we sacrifice. The result is thus that we are stuck in an infinite loop of bad health, sleep deprivation, and constant tension because we simply don’t have a way to find release.

DOES NEURO BLISS REDUCE STRESS?

It is for this reason that Neuro Bliss has become such a popular drink when it hit the market. This drink promises a relaxed state of mind and a stress-free experience upon consuming it. I have been reading the Neuro Bliss reduce stress drink reviews and cannot believe what I am reading. Does Neuro Bliss Reduce stress work? Many people have been absolutely excited by its wonderful properties, even those who started out skeptical about it. Reviewers have claimed that Neuro Bliss has reduced their stress levels by more than they could in years. People have even gone as far as saying that it is much better than a vacation away from home or a night out in the town over a weekend. That blows my mind but that is what people are saying.

What exactly is Neuro Bliss?
Is it a drug? No. Neuro Bliss is a lightly carbonated drink that has been designed to improve the neurological aspects of your body in order to combat stress. It is a delicious tropical, lychee flavored drink that promises a relaxed mind and a tension-free day. There are very little calories in this drink which makes it perfect for people who are watching their figures to experience peace of mind as well.

The ingredients in Neuro Bliss are perfectly safe for consumption and consist mostly out of natural ingredients. These ingredients have been selected by experts and professionals who have studied the effects of stress as well as the causes and who have been doing research in order to prevent it. It contains soothing chamomile which is present in certain stress-relieving teas as well as a blend of healthy vitamins and minerals to recharge your engines. There are also a wide range of antioxidants included in the blend such as L-theanine which is an amino acid found in green tea that promotes focus and relaxation.
By combining these minerals, antioxidants and vitamins, Neuro Bliss provides a smooth and stable blend that exerts a calming effect on the body and the mind. It reduces stress levels, improves memory and attention by supporting important brain functions, and it allows you to concentrate on the goals of the task ahead instead of the pressure.

I am not saying not to take your vacation, or stop exercising. These are critical activities we need to recharge your body and minds. Vacation and more sleep in itself has an extreme healing effect on the body for rest and restoration. Taking your mind off your day to day for a week at a time is important to idea generation and creating fresh perspectives. This will boost your overall productivity by taking time off. People feel like they will lose momentum but the truth is you will gain momentum. Excercise is similar. Keeping your body health will go a long ay to keeping your mind healthy.

So plan that vacation and make an exercise plan. AND if drinking this on a daily basis can reduce the day to day stress you experience and leaving you a little calmer, more centered and provide more resilience when things go sideways why not try Neuro Bliss to reduce stress. In today’s stressful environment, we need to utilize all the tools available to reduce stress.
If so many people are talking about Neuro Bliss, you owe it to yourself to see what all the buzz is about.

Neuro Bliss is widely available at stores such as Target, Walgreens, Safeway and 7-11 as well as other drug stores nationwide. With its affordable pricing and delicious flavor, there is no reason why you shouldn’t try out this vacation in a bottle. It could be your everyday getaway.

3 Relaxation Techniques that Zap Stress

3 Relaxation Techniques that Zap Stress: Reducing Stress is Key to a healthy happy productive life. This is your chance as a new year approaches to make a promise to yourself.

Have ever you asked someone how they are doing and gotten the response that they are “busy” or even more perplexing, they are “crazy busy”? It can sound like overwhelm and stress and yet the more “Busy” we are the more “Busy” almost becomes a badge of honor we wear to seem important regardless how the underlying tone is that the person saying they are “crazy” busy” is overwhelmed and feeling anxious because of all that they still have luring over them and their to do list.

Sound familiar?

Over one third of Americans, experience extreme stress

You are at the extreme stress level when you are riding consistently at the 8-10 range, on a scale of 1-10, more regularly than you may care to admit.

You can take reduce stress and control of your “Busy” and your stress levels by understanding that:

Stress Is a Choice

Yes, there are those moments where you need and want to react with an adrenaline surge, however the everyday stress that occurs is nothing more than a mental mind game. You have the ability to choose how you react to your “Busy” level and the stress that occurs in day to day life. The ball is in your court.

The very familiar quote that “10% of Life is What Happens to You and 90% is how you react.”

You can control your reactions. I know it is hard, but so is the 80% of illness that is derived from stress.

The key is to use stress management tools that will help you relax and keep the effects of stress at bay. In my training programs, I teach relaxation techniques that calm the mind and body.

The best relaxation technique for you may vary and particularly if you have gotten so used to your body being tense that you are no longer aware of the feeling until you throw out your back or have a crick in your neck that significantly limits mobility. When you feel pain, the stress is acute.

When was the last time you thought about

what was going on in your body?

If it’s been a while.. or longer than a while, reconnecting with your physical self will bring awareness of the level of tension you are experiencing. To gain the awareness, practicing Progressive Relaxation Technique will help you recognize when you relaxed or tensing.

Progressive Relaxation Technique

Progressive Relaxation Technique is a simple exercise of conscious tightening and relaxing of different muscle groups. It’s best done lying down, however you can practice it anywhere by becoming aware of the tension in your body. Scan your body to determine where there is tightness or pain. Tighten different parts of your body and hold for a few seconds and then release. Take a few moments to be aware of the relaxed state that group of muscles are in. Move to a different area of your body and repeat.

Deep Breathing:

Deep breathing is one of the single most effective relaxation techniques for stress. There are plenty of different methods of deep breathing. The key is to make sure that you are breathing fully into the bottom of your lungs so that your belly, not your chest is rising. In general, most us breath shallowly and we are not oxygenating our brains enough. Breathing deeply into our lungs will re-oxygenate our brains, calm nerves and reduce muscle tension in as little as 2 minutes. You will know that your brain has been re-oxygenated if you feel dizzy.

Visualization

One of my most favorite relaxation techniques is visualization. It is natural for people to spend more time thinking about what we don’t have, haven’t succeeded at, or what isn’t going right. That focus attracts more lack and more stress!

Sitting quietly for few minutes and focus on all that you do have and that which you want to bring into your life. Allow yourself to feel joy at what you desire. Anything can be possible when you are visualizing what you want. There are no limits.

As one of many stress relaxation techniques, visualization helps quiet the mind and physically relax the body. If focusing on any one thing for several minutes feels like a challenge, there are plenty of guided visualization available. You can choose something that is for relaxation only (think lying on a beach or being in the mountains) or if you want to visualize more success or abundance, visualization techniques are available for those as well.

Having a toolbox filled with relaxation techniques to assist you in taking control of your stress level and your “Crazy Busy” level makes being conscious of how you react far easier. These are relaxation techniques for anxiety as well as any other form of stress.

Use what works for you most effectively. The outcome may be what used to stress you out no longer affects you because you have made a different choice.

Ergonomics Make You More Productive

Be More Productive With In Office Ergonomics

Do you think you can be more productive with your day? What are you focused on to increase productivity? I would bet that there are many things you are not considering that can make a big difference in the productivity of you and your staff.

Man Standing at deskErgonomics has been underestimated in the past but new studies are coming out to show the true benefits. For instance, The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries reviewed 250 ergonomics case studies to show the impact of ergonomics on business goals like cost savings, productivity, and product quality.

Today, leading companies are integrating ergonomics deeply into all of their operations. An ergonomic design promotes good posture, less exertion, fewer motions and better heights and reaches, the workstation becomes more efficient. That also translates into better quality, happier employees, reduced safety issues and sick leave. See this presentation on the 5 proven benefits of ergonomics

What is ergonomics? The ergonomics definition is simply the study of work. Ergonomic product engineering takes into account human characteristics and preferences to enable the job to fit the worker. This allows the product use to take into account height, weight as well as hearing, sight, temperature preferences, and so on. Good ergonomics improves efficiency and productivity, promotes well-being and helps prevent injury.

Many underestimate the power of ergonomics. The right fit whether it be the way you hold something or how you sit is important to your health, safety, and productivity.

In a previous article, I talked about the productivity benefits of standing desks and standing meetings but that isn’t viable for all people and environments and needs to be combined with a proper ergonomic study because neither standing or sitting all day provides pressure on the back, spine and muscular skeleton. 

Companies that invest in ergonomic workstations are investing in the productivity of their environment. Time management isn’t just about scheduling, it is also about managing the physical distractions in the workplace to get the most out of the time we have. A focus on ergonomics is one of many environmental time management tips.

Let’s focus the rest of this article on ergonomic chairs.

What is an Ergonomic Chair?

It is a chair that best supports your spine and joints. It provides a greater physical comfort which translates into happier more creative workers.

An ergonomic chair should have the following features:

  • Swivel mechanism. Swivel mechanism facilitates sitting at the proper angle and easy movement.
  • Adjustable seat height. An ergonomic chair may also have a tilting seat pan to improve the angle of the pelvis and seat depth adjustment for individual setting of seatcomfortable office chair isolated on white with clipping path length
  • Adjustable armrests. Height and depth adjustment of the arm pads is recommended
  • Adjustable Backrest. A backrest that offers support for the lower back, in particular, can be raised and lowered and preferably tilted backward or forwards. The addition of an adjustable lumbar support pad is also recommended

Some benefits are:

  1. Preventing Back Pain and Other Injury

If, like most people you spend the bulk of your day sitting, the right chair is crucial. Sitting may seem like a low-impact activity but it places considerable strain on some parts of your body, especially the lumbar region. Supporting the back effectively and tilting the pelvis to encourage sitting straight instead of slouching can help protect the lower back.

  1. Productivity and output:

An ergonomic chair while reducing physical discomfort can help to stimulate productivity through more effective by fostering better concentration, creativity, and quality. They will spend more time focused on the tasks than their aches and pain. People will take less unnecessary breaks to relieve the discomfort. All of these breaks in concentration cost the productivity of the workforce.

  1. Long-term Savings

In the long run, companies save money by instating ergonomic chairs and workstations. People suffer less from fatigue and physical discomfort that can turn into muscle and spinal issues, reducing the number of days that employees are absent is a hidden cost that should be considered.

The care and attention your employees feel from creating a comfortable environment are translated directly into employee loyalty and engagement. This reduces employee turnover.

A happy workforce is a productive workforce.
