It is not easy to stick to a fitness routine. This is especially true when you are just getting started with exercising. Sometimes, you will not have the motivation to workout. Motivation is an important part of life. Without it, you would have no reason to work hard in life. Likewise, in its absence, you will have no energy to exercise. 

Considering that physical activity is important, it is crucial to stay motivated all the time, so that you do not lose track of your fitness goals. Unfortunately, many believe that finding motivation is a difficult task. So, they start skipping workouts claiming they will hit the gym the day motivation will find them. 

But, by waiting for motivation to find you, you only hurt your progress. Imagine what would happen if you went for a whole month without feeling motivated? Are you not going to put on weight during that time? 

In this book, I will give motivation strategies to keep you exercising. Since we are all different, you will need to pick those strategies that will work for you. By the time you get to the end of this book, you will never complain of not having energy to workout. 

Realizing your fitness goals will become a reality. If you have always wanted your watch to go a bit faster, your wish will come true. If you never had the energy to do extra sets, you will discover how easy it can be if you are motivated. 

So without further ado, let's get started.

About the Author 


Around 45% of normal adults snore occasionally and around 25% are routine snorers. Though it may seem to be a normal problem, as it is very common, but it should not be taken carelessly, especially in case of habitual snorers, as it may be an indication of obstructed breathing. 
Now a days, there are many anti- snoring devices available in the market and every year more of them are added, promising to cure the snoring problem. Unfortunately, many of these devices are not backed by research or lab testing. Some of them may even require you to stay awake the whole night. 

However, there are plenty of proven techniques and natural remedies that can help in eliminating this problem instead of relying on these devices. In this eBook, we discuss snoring, sleeping disorders, what causes snoring, and natural remedies including home remedies to treat snoring. Apart from that, we also talk about how to deal with the snoring complaints and how to cooperate and ask your partner to support you in curing the problem.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

You are going to be surprised to know that the trend for plastic surgery, – also known as cosmetic surgery and reconstructive aesthetic surgery – is turning out to be a multibillion-dollar business worldwide. 

There are supposedly more cosmetic surgeons in some cities, than there are practicing general practitioners, or even medical specialists? Why is this so? 

This book is going to tell you all about cosmetic surgery, and why people have some preconceived notions about it. Also, it is going to tell you all about surgical methods, which are practiced by reconstructive aesthetic surgeons – the new terminology for cosmetic surgeons – in order to make you look more youthful, beautiful, or just plain different. 

Many people know about one of the scariest socialites in the USA. She has spent $4 million in the past 10 years and more so that she can look more like a cat instead of a human being. Her justification for spending all this money, in spoiling a perfectly once beautiful face and making it look grotesque and weird, is that her multimillionaire husband loves big cats, and she wants to keep him interested in her. So that is why she is looking for that perpetual feline look. 

Any woman who can go to these limits in order to keep the fickle interest of Mr. Multi-Bank Accounts is definitely suffering from an infinity complex or she does not have anything constructive to do with her time. But this seems to please her. It also gets her plenty of attention because I think she enjoys the gawking audience staring at her and wondering how one could prefer to look so ugly. Especially when some of her surgical procedures made certain that she did not need a costume on Halloween in order to scare the kiddies. 

So, here we come to these points – do you really need plastic surgery? What are the psychological aspects of this surgery on the psyche of a human being? What is the difference between cosmetic and plastic surgery? 

This book is going to tell you all about reconstructive plastic surgery, and its steadily gaining importance in the life and times of beauty obsessed human beings. 

Cosmetic surgery has become such a booming business, just because of good PR. The demand for some people to look like a popular concept of beauty is being encouraged by media people, as well as the surgeons themselves, so that more and more people go in for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

America is known as the land of opportunity and the land of plenty. There was a time, though, when people were far more content with much less. Closets weren’t filled with clothes, shoes and purses. Families did not have multiple sets of dishes to eat from. One was the number of televisions in a home and everyone watched together. 

So what happened to make us start believing we needed so much more than our parents and grandparents did? Are we better? Smarter? More entitled? Certainly not! 

I think we developed the mindset of needing more for no other reason than there are more things to have and they are all right here and readily available to us. 

Thankfully, though, more and more people are beginning to see the futility of having so much stuff. More and more people are realizing our parents and grandparents knew what they were talking about when they spoke of ‘the simple life’ and are trading their excess belongings for more time and space to do what really matters…spend time with the people they love and do the things they really enjoy doing. 

The purpose of this book is to help you de-clutter your life; to get rid of things you don’t need and to help you see the benefit of not being so attached to material possessions. 

So gather a few (or several) boxes and even some trash bags because a simpler and less cluttered life truly is a better life.

Author Bio 


I was reading one of my favorite authors, Rex Stout, and Archie Goodwin, my favorite narrator spoke about one of their clients who he did not like. She was loudmouthed, rude, overdressed, and he was glad to see that he had an excuse not to like her. She had an unwashed neck. 

I gave a grin of smug and superior pomposity. Washing behind my ears, and washing my neck properly every day when having a bath had been drilled into me when I was a baby. So I had a squeaky clean neck, hurray, hurray. But it looked like I had been neglecting my elbows and my knees and also my feet. That comes of having no time for leisurely showers because one is in too much of a hurry to shower, get ready, and get out of the house in time to catch the morning’s rush to the rat race.

Even if you are not rushing around, and you have all the time in the world to have a long leisurely bath with all those lotions, potions, bath salts, and all those chemical-based stuffs, let us look at natural methods which are going to add to a clean body and exterior. 

These notions of elementary hygiene and cleanliness were disregarded, in many parts of the world, especially in Europe for centuries, but in other parts of the world, especially in ancient civilizations like Egypt, Persia, Babylon, China, Japan, and even ancient Europe, traditional beauty recipes to take care of the body and keep it young, youthful looking, and beautiful were handed down from grandmother to grandchild, and utilized. 

Nowadays, so many of us are so busy buying really expensive brand name cosmetics, and slathering them all over our skins, that we have forgotten all about natural-based traditional methods which have been in use for millenniums, especially in body and hand care. 

People always admire beautiful and well-maintained hands because they are about as expressive and appealing a feature to enhance your personality as a beautifully formed and made up youthful looking face is. 

The time spent upon taking care of your hands, feet, and the rest of your body can never be thought wasted. However, hands and feet and other parts of your body only get a fraction of the care and attention, we lavish upon our faces. 

If you think that a hand is not expressive look at the soft and smooth, graceful gestures of a dancer using both her hands to express a variety and gamut of emotions. It is sheer poetry and you may often have seen women using their hands so gracefully even in normal day-to-day gestures. This may make you feel so envious. 

Being quite human ourselves, we look at the ill cared for, rough skinned, and possibly red hands and decided that we are going to do something about it tomorrow. 

Well, tomorrow is here today, and this book is going to tell you all about traditional recipes made from items found right there in your kitchen, and in any traditional kitchen, with natural products.
