Your Health IS Everything

As you get settled into 2017, what are your greatest wishes for your health this year? If you're like 72% of the population, you know it's important, you just don't know where to begin.

Stop Taking Things Personally

Stop Taking Things Personally

"We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor things and sometimes taking things too personally." Dalai Lama Taking things too personally can add unnecessary stress to your life.  Sometimes it's hard to avoid, right?  Something may be going wrong in your personal life and then you get on a call with a colleague, sponsor or prospect, and then BAM!, something they say triggers you.  You internalize and react, rather than listen and respond.  Not a good call. Let's face it, when you aren't a good match for someone else, it's challenging to not let their words affect you.  You may find that happening quite a bit due to your sensitive nature or that you are going through a stressful time in life. If you find yourself feeling offended by others remarks or actions more often than not, you'll end up limiting yourself.  It's a waste of energy to experience things at the levels that cause you...

In The Meantime

In The Meantime I've got a couple of clients who are in transition right now, and their biggest struggle is The Meantime. Can you relate?  There's always something that is changing in your world, isn't there? And the most challenging aspect of change is what to do in the meantime. By most standards, waiting sucks. You feel out of control, your spirit diminishes and you may even get a little depressed. The flip to 'hunky dory' may be a stretch at first.... would you settle for 'OK'? RESETs: You feel the windup..... you know you're going to that place - what do you do?!  Here are a few RESETs for you to practice to keep you out of a downward spiral:  Be Graceful - a lot of times when you're in the meantime, you have a little tendency to get out of sorts, don't you?  Taking a moment to switch into your higher power will keep you in a state of grace and good standing. ...

Breathe In Life

Breathe In Life

Breathe In Life Spiro: the root for both breath and spirit - to inspire - fill the body with breath, and the spirit with awareness. The first and last thing you do in physical form is breathe. How do you breathe - do you breathe primarily through the nose, mouth, upper chest, mid chest or diaphragm? Think about the different areas of your body your breath affects...... your brain, your heart, your nervous system. When you are able to breathe evenly, you support your body, your mind and spirit, allowing them to be joyous and calm. Holding back your breath is unhealthy! Do you find yourself not breathing some times. Sounds funny, but 73% people in a recent study weren't even aware that they weren't breathing properly. How deeply do you breathe? Breathe deeply..... regulate your body chemistry  keep your pH, electrolyte balance & blood in flow  reduce anger, anxiety and stress in your mind & body  increase your cognitive, performance &...
