Building Self-Awareness through the noncompetitive Martial Arts call NINPO

Would you like to see some changes in your life? You can begin making these changes by building self-awareness. Self-awareness is a self-conscious state where you’re focused on yourself and your well-being.

It’s often said, “We cannot change what we will not see.” Self-awareness is the process of acknowledging not only our strengths, but our weaknesses as well. Becoming self-aware entails listening to your body and feelings and taking action based on what you hear.

If you’re in tune with your body, you’ll know when to say no to that extra piece of cake or say no to staying up late. You’ll become more in tune with your body the more often you respect it. Self-awareness is a process. The more we do it, the better we become at it.

How do you become self-aware?

These tips will help you in your journey to self-awareness:

  1. Reflect on who you are and who you’d like to become. While it’s important to notice your faults and weaknesses, it’s equally important to acknowledge your strengths. 

The better you understand yourself, the better you’re able to accept yourself as you are or change the things you’d like to be different. Self-awareness requires you to be honest with yourself and have the courage to change the things you can.
  • A full recognition of yourself gives you the opportunity to become the self-fulfilled person you’re destined to be.

Looking deep within your Mind, Soul and your Spirit, you’ll find the many character traits that make you unique. Begin by acknowledging the positive things. This will strengthen and encourage you to face the less favorable character traits without abandoning your new venture. 

On the other hand, when evaluating your strengths, don’t let your ego get the best of you. If you magnify either your strengths or your weaknesses, you can’t possibly get a realistic picture of yourself.

  • Until you examine the truth of who you are, you cannot move into the person you can become. Look at yourself in Mirror and ask yourself am I a good person or bad person you can lie to yourself because you’re asking yourself that question. Then you might get to know who you are.
  1. Pay attention to your likes and dislikes. Far too often, people make life-changing choices without acknowledging deeply rooted personal preferences.
  • Before you embark on goals for your future, have a full awareness of the things you especially enjoy and those you prefer not to have in your life.
  1. Face your inner self. During your self-awareness process, think about your motivations, dreams, fears and stressors. Think about why you feel the way you do, and then begin to work toward overcoming these inner battles.
  2. Ask your loved ones’ opinions. Talk to people who know you best and really listen to what they see as your dominant character traits and motivations. Ask them to be completely honest with you and be prepared to hear their opinions. 
  • You may not be your own best judge of character. Accept the way your loved ones see you as part of this process. Consider their opinions along with your own analysis in order to see the full picture of who you are.

Self-awareness is a necessary part of self-esteem and change. If you want to grow as an individual, begin with a complete and honest picture of who you are now. This total awareness will start your journey to becoming the best you can be. There is an other way to bill self-awareness it is through the noncompetitive Martial Arts call NINPO or to some people known as Ninjutsu.

Do You Honestly Want To BENEFIT?

Skate Your Way to Weight Loss, Fitness, and Freedom

Roller-skating
Roller-skating

Last weekend the kids the wife and I went Roller-skating , if you loved skating as a kid I did, turn your old hobby into a fun, a new workout that I’m going to recommend to my students at the my Martial arts school. Even if you’re a complete newbie, skating is easy to learn and safe as long as you follow some simple precautions.

Put some wheels or blades under your feet. Take a look at the advantages of skating and how to make rollerblading or ice skating part of your exercise routine.

Benefits of Exercising on Skates

  1. Lose weight. Ice skating or rollerblading burns as many calories as running, which is about 400 calories an hour, depending on your weight. As a bonus, skating is also easier on your joints than running.
  2. Tone your lower body. Skating engages your entire lower body, as well as your core. With one movement, you target your buttocks, thighs, calves, and abdomen.
  3. Enjoy socializing. Skating is a fun activity to share with family and friends. Many rinks offer concerts and concession stands. Sip hot chocolate and listen to jazz after your workout.
  4. Spend time indoors or outdoors. Indoor rinks allow you to stick to your program, even when it’s snowing or raining. On the other hand, skating outdoors can be especially appealing. Connecting with nature helps reduce stress and restore your energy levels.
  5. Feel exhilarated. With rollerblades, also known as inline skates, you’ll be traveling fast from the time you take off. On pavement or ice, some skaters may work up to speeds of 25 miles an hour or more. You’ll feel graceful and relaxed as you fly along.

How to Exercise on Skates

  1. Select your footwear. Proper fitting is essential. Your skate size will probably be a bit smaller than your shoe size, especially if you’re a woman. Ensure that your heels fit securely in the back of the boots. You may want to start out with recreational skates and switch to fitness skates as you become more proficient.
  2. Take a class. Working with a qualified instructor could save you from many falls. Ask the staff at your local skate shop for recommendations or browse online for classes.
  3. Learn to brake. Stopping safely in various conditions is one of the first skills you’ll want to master. Remember that figure skates brake in the front, while online skates brake in the back.
  4. Train for balance. Additional balance training may also help keep you on your feet. Ask your instructor for exercises you can perform on your skates. Practice standing on one leg with your eyes closed to increase your balance.
  5. Build up your strength. At first, your legs may feel sore as your muscles try to adapt to skating. Performing squats and lunges can help speed up the process.
  6. Plan your route. Quiet parking lots or skating rinks are ideal for your first skating practices. As you become more steady on your feet, you can venture out to skating parks and trails.
  7. Follow the rules of the road. If you’re skating on public roads, obey the same rules as a bicyclist. Wherever you skate, stay to the right. If you want to pass someone, check that you have enough room and let them know that you’re approaching on their left.
  8. Wear safety gear. Helmets are essential when skating. Wrist guards and pads for your elbows and knees will also help protect you from injuries.
  9. Intensify your workouts. There are many ways for skaters to heighten the challenge. Gradually increase your speed and distance. Bend forward at the waist to work your legs harder.

If your treadmill is starting to bore you, maybe it’s time to trade it in for a pair of skates. They’re not just for kids or Olympic athletes. You can skate your way to greater health and fitness.

At the end of the day, however, you can identify the friendships that have a real foundation.

 

Identify these truths in your relationships to determine which ones represent true friendship:

  1. Friendship withstands disagreements. Anybody you consider a true friend can attest to the fact that disagreements undoubtedly happen. But that person can also confirm that your bond withstands those disagreements.
  • True friends know that regardless of the differences or disagreements, the foundation of the relationship still exists. 
  • A sign of true friendship is when two people continue to live well with each other after a disagreement.
  1. Friends keep it real. The beauty about friendship is that there is rarely any pretense. Friends share their vulnerabilities with each other. They trust that their quirks are accepted by each other.
  • Your true friends hardly worry about what you think of their actions or behaviors. They know that if there’s one person in the world who understands them, it’s you!
  • It’s also safe to say that your real friends avoid sugar-coating anything they’re saying to you. Expect to get their opinion as real as it comes!
  1. Confidentiality is respected. When the matter of confidentiality comes up, you can tell a friend by whether your request for confidentiality is respected. True friends acknowledge the importance of maintaining your trust.
  • With true friends in your Martial arts life, you can feel comfortable sharing your deepest secrets. Your secrets will be just as safe with friends as they are when you keep them to yourself.
  • Your private space is important to you, and a genuine friend understands that. They understand when to step aside and give you the time you need. And they do this without feeling offended.
  1. Support is unconditional. It’s true that Martial arts friends sometimes have different interests and beliefs. But even when viewpoints are different, your Martial arts  friends still offer support to each other.
  • Martial arts Friends usually offer advice to each other. And even when the advice you get is different from what you want to hear, you know it’s coming from a genuine sentiment.
  • If you need someone to lean on when you’re going through a rough spot, your real Martial arts friends instinctively know. They’ll show up when you least expect it and bring loads of hugs with them!
  1. Achievements are celebrated. It’s unlikely that you’ll find a true friend who doesn’t celebrate your achievements. The questionable friends may feel envious of your success. But true Martial arts friends get just as excited as you do about your victories.
  • You’ll likely even find a true friend helping you prepare for an upcoming test at the dojo. Even if it’s a success they want for themselves, they’re happy just knowing you stand a good chance of passing your test.
  • Sincere friends take the time to congratulate each other. They give gifts, treat each other to dinner, and make other special gestures. They like to show that they care.

 

Have you identified anybody who embodies a true friend after looking at these indicators? If you have, latch on to that person as long as you can! A genuine friend can be difficult to find. You’ll find great joy when you nurture your friendships.

 

Commit to being the kind of friend to others as you want them to be to you. Friendship works both ways!

Happiness is a girl-smiling-with-happinessMartial arts Happiness is one of life’s simplest concepts, yet it’s sometimes difficult to come by. You’ve probably gone through times when you wondered why your life is less than happy.

Seekers of happiness sometimes overlook basic ideas.

Ensure you possess these four key attitudes in order to make happiness yours:

  1. Be positive. Having a positive view on life is an effective way to ensure happiness. Although you’ll have difficult times, there’s usually a positive outcome or lesson to be learned.
  • Make an effort to overlook the negative aspects of a situation. It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to change what happened, but you can definitely decide how to respond.
  • Positive thinking gives you confidence to go after your goals. Consider the times you’ve doubted your ability to do something. How often are you able to succeed when you doubt yourself?
  • When you think positive, you’re able to hold your head up, regardless of the situation. You know that your future is rarely defined by what happens to you in the present.
  • Embrace positive thoughts and watch happiness come your way!
  1. Be grateful. It’s sometimes easy to overlook the blessings in your life. Negative circumstances can cloud your vision. But when you possess an “attitude of gratitude,” you’ll find that happiness pushes you through the gloomy days.
  • Even when a situation has a less than favorable outcome, avoid dwelling on it. Instead, be grateful for the experience. Now you’ll know how to proceed the next time.
  • Make time during your day to meditate on the things that you’re thankful for. You’ll notice that at the end of that session, a sense of relief takes over you. That relief represents happiness from knowing that you’re truly blessed.
  • A grateful attitude helps you be satisfied with what you have, instead of wishing you were in someone else’s shoes.
  1. Be kind. Many of us misunderstand kindness. True kindness is often experienced when you sacrifice something you have and want to meet someone else’s needs.
  • How many times have you been truly kind today? You’ll recognize true kindness from the warmth you feel inside after sharing something material, or even a kind word.
  • Approaching others with a heart of kindness allows you to deal with situations without getting angry. Happiness thrives in the absence of anger.
  1. Be forgiving. It’s easy to let feelings of hurt and anger affect your desire to forgive others. But it’s necessary to forgive in order to live a truly happy life. When you forgive, you let go of your pain. Letting go makes room for peace of soul and mind. That peace leads to happiness.
  • Practicing forgiveness helps you to grow and lead a happy, mature life. Growth and development poise you for success and joy.

 

These key attitudes to living a happy life seem simple enough in your Martial arts. Try practicing them one at a time until you’re comfortably happy with your progress. Eventually, you’ll be able to experience the kind of happiness your thought only existed in fantasy worlds!
