The Top 3 Things U Can Learn from a FIFA World Cup Player

If you’re alive and paying attention to the world around you at all, you know that the 2014 FIFA World Cup is currently going on. As we were watching the game yesterday I realized that even though these players are clearly some of the best in the world, there are still some basic things they practice that we can also do in our own lives. Feel free to add to the list but these are the top three things that jumped out at me:

1) They take care of their bodies.

These players clearly are amazing athletes with incredible bodies but they weren’t born that way. They worked and continue to work hard every day to make sure they’re are able to do their jobs on the field. While you might not need to be in the same kind of shape as one of these players, they are a great reminder of just what our bodies are capable of if we feed them and treat them right. Take care of your body and watch what you’ll be able to do!

Hey, someone is actually asking teenagers for their opinion. What a novel idea.


Hey you out there! Yo! Excuse me!

Yes, I’m talking to you. You are a teenager right? (If you’re an adult reading this page ‘cause you’re curious and because no one ever shared the secrets to life with you that’s ok too.)

I need your help.

You see, I’ve put this blog together to be helpful for teens. The secrets and tools I’m sharing are concepts and universal truths that most adults don’t share with you guys because they think you can’t handle it, you’re too immature, your brains aren’t developed enough for it, blah blah blah. (And PS – aren’t you sick of being told that you do things differently or can’t do things at all because that part of your brain hasn’t developed yet? I get that its science but I also think it just discredits you but now I’m really getting off topic.)

That Awkward Moment When U Notice Someone’s Zipper…


That awkward moment when you notice someone’s zipper is down but you don’t want to say anything because you don’t have a good excuse for why you were looking that low.

Seriously, when I read that I just cracked up because how many of us have had that moment? So freaking embarrassing.

Laughing out loud reminded me though of how important it is to laugh.

Laughter is present moment awareness.

Laughter is being in the now.

Laughter is meditation.

So, laugh at yourself. Laugh with others. Laugh alone. It’s a sure way to be in the moment and to suddenly feel better about, well, anything.

Here are some more jokes to get you going.

Fine For Now

fine for now

One of the nicest things about being in the Now or the present moment is that for that very moment, that one breath, that millisecond – you’re fine.

In that one moment you just are.

You are you.

And you’re fine for now.

The more you practice this, the more addicting it becomes. It’s like a mini-vacation for your mind.

So just stop.


Feel your breath filling up your lungs.

Feel it leaving you.

See, you’re just fine for now.
