Ask the Questions and Celebrate Everything!

Goals and intentions are the focus of many conversations this week ... It seems like "The Holidays" are all about "What we are going to Get" and, with the New Year, the focus is shifting to "Who we're going to Become!"  I love this cyclic process.  

It's interesting to ask the Questions: 
  • What are my core passions?
  • What are my short and long term goals?
  • Did I accomplish what I wanted last year?  
  • If I continue on this road, will I meet my goals for this year?
  • How will I recognize Divine Guidance and assistance?
  • What is my intention?
  • Where will I put my attention?
  • When will I feel joy and "no tension?" 
And I love the resources that appear as we each take stock of where we are and where we want to go. For my health, I'm participating and supporting others in the Stop, Challenge, Choose 12 week Contest. For my spiritual development, I'm participating in a Baha'i Deepening course. For my mental health, I'm delighting in the materials and exercises from the Passion Test.

I love being of service to clients, friends and businesses ... give me a call ... together we can discover your passions and life's purpose, improve your health and vitality, and increase your wealth and happiness in every way!

Holiday Tips: Fill Yourself up with Laughter!

Laughter really is the best medicine!


Filling yourself up with the company of good friends and rollicking laughter will fill you up and intercept the gnawing "hunger" that we often feel this time of year ...

Just 15 minutes of laughter increased the level of pain tolerance by 10% and the kind of laughter that works best is a belly aching laugh that usually only happens when you are with others.

The goal is to experience "A rattling good laugh with friends!"  Click here to read more.

'Tis the Season to be Stressed?

OK, "Tis The Season" to make merry and be a bit stressed!

We're on the count down through Chanukah, Winter Solstice, Soyaluna, DongZhi, Christmas, Boxing Day, Kwanzza, and New Year's Eve ... I'll bet you, like me, have a lot on your mind ... we are being bombarded by Ho Ho advertising, missing loved ones, unattainable expectations ...there's a lot to do.  This can lead to feelings of exhaustion, guilt, and being chronically a day late and a dollar short!

So, since all of us are on the determined journey to better physical, mental, and financial health, all the posts from now until December 31st are going to focus on "Holiday Survival Tips."  These tips can be used anytime of the year!  The ones that have been posted so far, in case you haven't read them and would like to look them up, include:

All I Want for Christmas ...

"All I Want for Christmas ... " 
I'm hearing "that" song and thinking about what I really want and wondering if it is in alignment with what you want too.

I'd like a little more time:
  • to explore my creative talents ... maybe I'll make a few gifts?
  • to be present with my kids and grandbabies ... to just laugh and play, share love and make memories!
  • to be prepared with healthy snacks and meals so I don't get caught in a hungry, vulnerable moment, then stuff myself and slide up a notch in my belt buckle.
My Solution: 
I hereby acknowledge that I've been a workaholic and will take better care of MYSELF from this moment forward!!! I don't have to wait until "after the holidays" or January 1st!!

Here are a few wonderful quotables from clients this week:
(Do any of these resonate with you too?)

​S​
tress
​ is my undoing​
 - 
​I have way too much on my "To-Do" list and find myself ​
swing
​ing​
 
​through​
 the​
 drive 
​through​
 - 
​I'm ​
eating out
​ because I'm not prepared and have 
no time to cook
​.
 

​When I wonder off Program, I go hunting for ​
sweet & salty
​ snacks - I'm soooo happy that there are so many options on Program!!

​I'm doing a Restart. I've been off plan for 6 months, haven't been eating mindfully, and have regained a bit of my weight.  By the end of the day, I'm ​
starving
​!  It's like I 
panic
​.  Old memories from 50+ years ago come up - when my mother, who was anorexic, wouldn't let me eat when I was hungry. I remember going to bed crying because of the hunger pain in my tummy​
​.
 
 
Thank you so much for being there for me!!! I really appreciate you ongoing help, support, and friendship!!!​
 

So here's the deal:
You are entitled to nourishment, pleasure and good health.
You are also gifted ​with tools and insight to help you set reasonable, attainable, AND sustainable goals!!!

Here's a visual testimonial from Craig. He has lost 105# and is off all of his health related medications. 
Studies show that for every 50# lost, we gain 10 years of quality life. What better gift than more time with those you love
​???​

Call me! Let's check in on your current reality, set some goals, adjust some habits, and make more progress ... Let's celebrate and share what we have accomplished!!!

I'm here to help and learn. Thank you for teaching me to be a good coach!
