Can you Change How You Think?

Posted on February 28 2017

For years, I have used mindfulness, meditation, and breathing techniques.  They are amazing modalities to calm and de-stress and I cannot imagine them not being part of my daily routine. But I will admit they don’t always work to change the way I think.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes you really want something that you know you can have intellectually but somehow you fall into a pattern of either procrastination or excuses (some of which you minds perceives as very convincing!)  We are wired in such a way that our mind is on auto-pilot when it comes to fears, worries or beliefs.  Its as if it sneaks up on us and holds us hostage.

I found something several years ago that not only fascinated me but took me a while to believe it would really work for me.  To my surprise it helped me pretty quickly. I was able to release my limiting beliefs and now it is another “go-to” when I am find myself replaying negative thoughts of worry.  For me, it comes in handy as a mindset reset!.

It a technique that is easy, not time consuming and can be done any time, anywhere. While some judge it a “woo-woo”, I have found remarkable results in using it to extinguish the very thoughts that can sometimes hold me back from the things I want in my life.

I’d love to share more with you so you too can benefit.

I think you will really enjoy this. Check it out here.

Have a wonderful day!

Is this a Challlenging Time to Start Eating Healthy?

Posted on December 10 2016

fb-cover-christmas-2016As I sat to write today, I had the pleasure of enjoying the room around me. Although I am not a big fan of crowds for big sales., I treasure the the Christmas season. This year I decided to complete my decorations early enough to be able to enjoy them longer.

As I opened the box of ornaments, memories flooded in. Each one reminded me of a special person in my life and the place they hold in my heart. The ones that best inspire me are magic, dreams and belief.

This brings me to the subject of belief.  What stands in your way of your success with healthy lifestyle change?

I hear over and over again how difficult it is to stick to eating healthy over the holidays. I wonder if it is the voice of experience or a voice of defeat? Or have you convinced yourself you really believe you can’t do it?

As Henry Ford said ” whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right”.  This is true! Belief is the most powerful virtue you can hold. It determines you success or failure.

There is no dispute that making healthy choices can be difficult around this time of year. However, if you knew that the average weight gain between Thanksgiving and New Years is 7 – 10 lbs,  would that give you pause? Would you believe that a few more weeks wouldn’t really matter since you would start on Jan 1st?

This is the thing….no one wants to diet during the holidays! Instead, how would it be to maintain and not gain? If temptation of foods around the celebrations is what puts you over the edge, start by being mindful. Just notice what your mind is telling you and how your body is responding. Keep a log of what you are observing.  Chances are you will most likely make better choices.

Till next time… Believe you can!

Coming Back to Basics

Posted on November 03 2016

This humble-and-kindyear has been a difficult one in the world. With the rise of violence and divided beliefs and values, it is heartbreaking to see the division of relationships and unity I believed we could have.  

I look around and notice the basic foundational values of respect and consideration for others is missing.  I see it more and more in adults and fear that children are growing up to think  this behavior is “okay”.  When I heard this song, it gave me pause. So simple, yet so critical.

What began as a mother’s prayer became a message to all of us.  It is not just for our children but for all of us to take to heart. May we all live with respect, humility and kindness.

“Humble And Kind”
(written by Lori McKenna)

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the key’s under the mat
When childhood stars shine,
Always stay humble and kind

Go to church ’cause your mamma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you”
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why:
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind

Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
“I love you” ain’t no pick-up line
So always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you”
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re going don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind
