Sports watches are special types of wristwatches designed to assist you with a specific outdoor activity such as walking, bush walking, triathlon or deep water diving. Sport watches differ in many ways. When you shop for a sports watch you will find significant varation in terms of features, price and design. Prices can range from under $10 into many thousands of dollars.
Recreational sportsmen and women are typically tempted to go for a cheap sport watch with only a basic timer feature which is perfectly fine, if this is all that you need, but a lot are more ambitious about their intentions and can benefit considerably from the sports modes and value of a mid to higher-range sports timepiece. The better quality watches tend to be both more proven and offer better features and performance, especially when applied to particular pursuit.
Some examples of the different types of sports watches include:

When you go about your day, you’d often give yourself a -to do- list for the things you want to do during your work day. It’s easy to think about your tasks and tell yourself to do each one until they’re all done. But realistically, this often isn’t the case. You might end up spending too much time on one task that you end up wasting the rest of the day not able to finish everything on your -to do- list. Here’s where a technique called time boxing can help you manage your time better.
This technique will help you see your workday in terms of hours and minutes. Instead of doing tasks and allowing yourself to spend an uncertain amount of time on the tasks, you will need to do the tasks within a set amount of time. Let’s say you need to do an article about global warming, set a minimum and maximum time for the tasks involved in writing the article. You can probably set a minimum of 30 minutes for research, then another 30 minutes for the draft, a maximum of an hour for the article itself, and 30 minutes for proofing and editing. Start doing each task and focus on each within the stretch of time that you have set. And when you reach the end of the time, you need to stop and drop the task. You’ll end up with a task that is time-pressured and you get to finish the task within the set time, with more time to spare for a break or for other tasks.
Time boxing also helps you see and predict the amount of time you will need to spend on each of your tasks. You can assess yourself and set the time for each task according to your capabilities. You need to do this before you actually start your work day. And once you are able to, you end up with a -to do- list that also includes the minutes or hours you have set up to spend on each task. You end up with your time being managed well.

A religious rights leader in the US recently sparked off a debate with his comments on the inappropriateness of Yoga for those of the Christian faith. Arguments have since flown fast and thick on all sides over the linking of Yoga with specific religions.
As a proponent of Yoga as the ultimate challenge for the attainment of holistic wellness, I have been extremely pained to read all things related to the matter. For one, I havent been able to fathom the reasons as to why this should even be thrown on the table.
It is true that Yoga originated in India, the same country which produced great religious systems such as Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism. Indeed, India is one of the two regions of the world which has been the cradle of religious thought, the other being the Middle East which produced Christianity, Islam, Judaism et al.
Two of the greats, Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci, changed the face of the summer Olympic games forever. Carl Lewis is noted as the sole athlete that helped track and field move from its original amateur status in the Olympic games to the professional status, as we know it today. As for Nadia Comaneci, being the first gymnast to score a perfect 10 ever in the history of the Olympic games has raised the bar for all gymnasts after her. Now retired from the Olympics both Carl Lewis and Nadia Comaneci are still very outspoken about their sport and help to promote it. Being Olympic stars and motivation speakers they have become very quotable. Here are eight of my most favourite quotes from each athlete:

Louis Canning, “The Good Wife” (played by Michael J. Fox)
Michael J. Fox is widely considered one of the most charismatic and charming actors in the business. So it’s no wonder that Fox’s character on “The Good Wife” is also perceived as being quite the charmer. While Louis Canning may be a bit of a controversial character, this skilled lawyer is excellent at endearing himself to judges and juries. Canning, who suffers from a neurological disease called tardive dyskinesia, famously worked hard to bring a class action lawsuit against a chemical company that dumped pesticides near a residential area. The residents of the neighborhood experienced terrible health problems as a result.
