    CALORIES & EXERCISE 101
    Calories are the amount of energy in food. When you do not use the energy it is stored as fat. This happens when you take in more calories than you burn off through daily activities.

    5 Tips To Making It Happen This Year!

    Happy New Year from all of us here at Team MAA! The start of the year is a crucial time… It’s a unique window of opportunity to take the right actions that will set you up for the rest of the year. In this window of opportunity, you have two choices. To settle or to take action. For most people, they will let another year slip by. It will be a different year with the same excuses. They’re going to continue settling, continue going through the same bad habits they know they need to change, continue to get stepped on by the same people, avoid the challenges they know are holding them back. They’ll start off their 2019 with good intentions… ....

    A Note For Parents About Setting Expectations

    PARENTS - REMEMBER THIS..... Sometimes we set unrealistic expectations for ourselves and our kids. But that only leads to frustration and STRESS. But if we look at things more “realistically,” and set goal to make them better… We’re happier overall :) Here are some things to remind yourself as a parent: “All kids misbehave sometimes. It’s okay for a child to act out sometimes.” “It’s okay that I don’t have all the answers as a parent. I can figure things out as I go.” “I always have a second chance. If I didn’t handle something well with my child the first time - I can do better the next time.” ....

    6 Awesome, Easy Tips For Better Homework This Year!

    Get the energy flowing first
    Moving the body motivates the brain. Try having your child walk or bike after school, play outside, do chores around the house, or go to the dojo (karate school). Make sure your child has had a chance to run, walk, or jump around before sitting down to do homework. If they are a student of the martial arts, a few kicks or blocks in a safe place will do the trick. Turn off screens and cell phones
    Before your kid tackles homework or does anything that takes concentration, turn off the television. Or if others are watching it, make sure your child is far enough away that he/she can’t be distracted by it. Also, shut down or move him/her away from ....

    5 Unusual Forms of Meditation That Improve Focus & Concentration
    We've talked about meditation a lot in these newsletters. I don't care who you are - a grungey, hardcore MMA guy or a house mom just wanting to get in great shape... Meditation will change your life. Why? It's pretty simple. We live in a crazy world. Mental stimuli is everywhere. We all have deadlines, responsibilities, relationships, careers or school, etc., etc., etc. But our minds are cups that can only hold so much. The thing is, most of us don't spend time "emptying" our cups. That's what meditation is. It empties your mind, so you can feel clear and focused when you ....
