“People who are never challenged by life don’t have the opportunity to learn how to overcome adversity, which enables them to develop coping strategies, identify who the important members of their social network are, and feel competent after they make it through,”.
Roxane Cohen Silver, PhD, the University of California, Irvine
Researchers have found that a lack of sleep diminishes your attention and concentration, thereby affecting your problem solving abilities. Without adequate rest, you cannot learn well. It also keeps you from “consolidating” memories, so you cannot remember what you learned from day to day.
A 2011 Roehampton University study found that early risers had the fewest signs of depression and anxiety when compared to those who slept in.
Numerous studies have shown the benefits that negative IONs have on the body, but did you know:
“The normal ion count in fresh country air is 2,000 to 4,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter (about the size of a sugar cube). At Yosemite Falls, you’ll experience over 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. On the other hand, the level is far below 100 per cubic centimeter of Los Angeles freeways during rush hour.”
Grab your VITALITY+ Performance Band and head to the mountains to expose yourself to the negative IONs your body needs.
While Steve Prefontaine became one of the most decorated long-distance runners of his generation in college, few remember how bad Prefontaine was in high school. Prefontaine could barely run a race during his freshman and sophomore years of high school, but was determined to change course during the summer of his junior year. His work ethic led him to become one of the most popular athletes of the 1970′s, though his untimely passing in 1975 was described as the “end of an era,” for distance runners. His spirit lives on with the inspirational quote, “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”

Tim Tebow reminds us to BELIEVE!
Tim Tebow once again showed great heroics in the Broncos last playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers throwing an 80 yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas to end the game in overtime. After the play, Tebow could be seen on bended knee thanking the Lord. In the stands, posters could be seen with the words: BELIEVE, BELIEVE, BELIEVE, referring to comments made by Tebow after a comeback win in a previous game, in which he attributed the win to his faith in God and the belief he has in himself and his teammates, and the belief they have in him. Watch the following clip:
Tim Tebow has found ways to witness, how about you? Witness in a whole new way with the John 20:31 Believe Witness Band.
