Lisaveta Ramotar Shares Her Secret Motivation Hacks That Can Change Lives

Lisa Ramotar Guyana

Lisaveta Ramotar has achieved a high level of success due to staying motivated and focused. She shared a few simple hacks anybody can do to stay focused.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 19, 2020 / — The Ways Lisaveta Ramotar Stays Motivated

Success for Lisaveta Ramotar has always required a lot of hard work, dedication, and endurance. She believes that those who genuinely want to reach their dreams have no choice but to be motivated almost always. And yet, there are days when Lisaveta Ramotar wants to do nothing more than be idley scroll the internet or just read a book instead of working.

And yet, Lisaveta Ramotar fights through these feelings and sticks to her duties. To her way of thinking, there is nothing about herself that makes her different from anybody else. She has the same types of hopes, dreams, and desires as anybody else. However, she has mastered many kinds of motivation hacks that make her dreams well within her reach – and sometimes within her grasp.

These hacks are things that Lisaveta Ramotar has discovered work for her and other people as well. The main goal behind them is to create as much motivation as possible and keep them focused on their dreams. Anybody – and she stresses this very heavily – can do them if they are consistent, persistent, and ready to fight for what they believe. That's why she shared her hacks – to make the world a better place.

The Best Motivation Hacks Compiled By Lisaveta Ramotar

One motivation hack that Lisaveta Ramotar knows may not sound right to some is the importance of good posture and presentation. Though she is a firm believer in the fact that physical appearances shouldn't matter to the perception of a person's worth, she knows that when she keeps good posture and presents herself well, her motivation and confidence increase substantially.

Once she achieves this type of physical balance, she moves on to controlled breathing. Sometimes, people cannot motivate themselves because their goals seem impossible to achieve. This anxiety can rob them of motivation, but controlled breathing, meditation, and obtaining high levels of relaxation help to increase her focus and motivate Lisaveta Ramotar to work harder than ever. These simple tips are how Lisaveta Ramotar starts her day almost every day.

However, she also believes that creativity is vital to motivation. While for some creativity could be picking up a guitar or painting a picture she thinks that other things like expressive writing or gardening can also enhance a person’s creativity and distract from the general routine of mundane work. Does it matter if it's good? Lisaveta Ramotar doesn't think so. What matters is engaging your brain, keeping it active, and making motivation a part of your life. So turn off the TV, stop watching Netflix, and get to work. Remember: success and motivation can be fun if you let them be so.

Micah Raskin Discusses the Psychological and Physical Benefits of Gardening

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

NASSAU COUNTY, NY, USA, July 31, 2020 / — Micah Raskin, a professional poker player and local philanthropist, loves to garden. “You wouldn’t think it to look at me,” laughs Raskin, “but it’s a passion of mine. I love to be outside, and I love to watch things grow. There are few things more satisfying than nurturing life in the quiet of nature.”

And other than putting delicious veggies and fruits on the table or decorating your home with lovely flowers, gardening offers a variety of benefits both physical and mental for those who enjoy it.

Get Your Vitamin D With Gardening Says Micah Raskin

Vitamin D increases levels of calcium in your body, which helps your immune system function better and makes your bones stronger. Studies have found that exposure to sunlight increases vitamin D levels in adults, and gardening is – usually – an outdoor, daylight activity.

“Being outside always gives my mood an instant boost,” says Micah Raskin. “And when you live in New York City, a little extra greenery and sunlight can keep you sane.” Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen and sunglasses so you don’t damage your skin or your eyes!

Gardening Decreases Your Risk of Dementia Says Micah Raskin

A study from 2006 found that gardening lowers your risk of dementia by 36%. More than 2,800 people over the age of 60 were tracked by researchers for 16 years. The study concluded that physical activity – and gardening in particular – reduced the risk of developing dementia in future years.

“It doesn’t surprise me a bit,” says Micah Raskin. “When you’re gardening, your mind is at rest – you’re much more mindful of your surroundings and your actions. I know mindfulness and meditation are also recommended to stave off dementia. Gardening is my favorite form of meditation.”

Micah Raskin Says Gardening is Great Exercise

“Obviously there are all kinds of gardens,” says Micah Raskin. “But no matter how large or small your garden is, you’re going to have to do a little physical labor to take care of it.”

From lifting bags of soil to bending over and reaching to weed, gardening is a surprisingly physical activity for most people. You may not even realize that you’re breaking a sweat as you become absorbed in what you’re doing says Micah Raskin, a long-time gardener.

“Pulling weeds, hoeing the ground, digging holes, lifting tools and plants, bending and twisting to reach – it’s all really great exercise. You may not realize it at the time, but you’ll be able to tell you were exercising when you wake up in the morning,” chuckles Micah Raskin. Gardening can work new muscles and help improve your stamina, flexibility, and strength.

Nicholas Gerace Discusses the Benefits of Homeschooling

Nicholas Gerace highlighted some of the vital skills and life lessons that are more achievable through homeschooling.

LATHAM, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2020 / — Impassioned about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Nicholas Gerace coaches this discipline to beginners, children, and teenagers, while also working as an AFAA personal trainer, bodybuilding coach, and master life coach. As a firm believer in holistic health, he is an outspoken advocate of the connection between physical and spiritual energy.

Nicholas has reviewed a handful of the valuable talking points that are common in homeschooling, yet consistently neglected in typical schooling systems. All of these lessons inspire mindfulness and are critical to a child's future.


Implementing gardening into a homeschooling curriculum is incredibly helpful for a child's maturation and awareness, Nicholas Gerace says. Children are taught the responsibility of nurturing a plant, ensuring that it receives sufficient water and loads of sunshine. Gardening also stresses the importance of patience, as plants require time to grow into that picturesque finish that we initially conjure up in our minds. A child who engages in gardening discovers an abundance of health benefits, resulting from the fresh air, sunshine, and healthy eating habits. With regular time spent outdoors, children begin to understand the environmental issues plaguing our planet and it allows them to form a connection with the natural world.


Yoga sessions give children the opportunity to experience breathing exercises, stretching, and relaxation in a home setting, Nicholas Gerace states. These routines are largely beneficial, both psychologically and physiologically, as children are encouraged to focus on thematic concepts, such as peace, respect, gratitude, and healthy living. Through visual imagery and relaxation, children are empowered to quiet the mind and body. Additionally, yoga concentrates on activities that form relationships by practicing compassion, respect, and support with others. It is a wonderful foundation to establish for children because, as they grow up, they are capable of expanding on these ideas, creating a deeper awareness.

Mental Health

Most schools fail to integrate mental health into the curriculum, Nicholas Gerace confirms, but homeschooling can be a highly effective source of mental health education. After learning about the topic of depression, children may use mindfulness and meditation when feelings of sadness are encountered. By beginning these lessons at an early age, it eliminates the notion that mental illness is an unspeakable subject and instead sparks their motivation to comprehend its potential impact on an individual. Being compassionate and understanding, children become better equipped to express genuine empathy to those who suffer from mental health problems.


Schooling systems have a reputation for overlooking the creative side of a child, that special attribute which can produce magical thoughts. Although subjects like math and science might not seem to be the most ideal of creative outlets, truthfully, an astute teacher can stimulate children to think outside of the box in any circumstances. Unfortunately, the educational institutions and their guidelines often prevent these teachers from this process; however, homeschooling fosters a creative atmosphere throughout the day. Although academia is extremely vital, far too frequently, it falls substantially short of fostering and promoting creativity.


Teaching children to understand themselves to a greater extent, you allow them to discover their tendencies and adapt to various scenarios. Rather than forcing a child to learn in a specific manner, which the majority of educational institutions are guilty of, homeschooling modifies the approach to suit each student. Simply explaining why and how a child learns differently from the customary manner can produce a positive, helpful outcome. People who are increasingly self-aware tend to have a higher level of psychological health and a more favorable outlook on life.

Final Thoughts from Nicholas Gerace

Lastly, homeschooling teaches children the significance of resilience: the ability to respond and recover from problematic challenges. Life is filled with uncertainties and setbacks, but children can be better prepared for these experiences if they learn the power of resilience at a young age, says Nicholas Gerace. Protecting children from mistakes and the responsibility of responding constructively, you only hinder their growth. Whether it is unforeseen circumstances or a glaring error on the child's part, they need to realize how they can overcome these moments, particularly because it will make the next obstacle easier to overpower.
