Well it's that time again...a time of resolutions, "New Year New You's", great intentions, poor planning and sadly, more often then not...disappointment.
And even though I periodically bring up the fact that I don't believe in waiting until the magical day that seems to be January 1st to make change, I have to admit I enjoy and appreciate the collective energy of everyone's intention for change at the beginning of the year.
Today I wanted to share something that happened to me. It wasn't anything blatantly earth-shattering or in-your-face. In fact, it was simply a series of thoughts that ran through my mind.
Thoughts that occur everyday but today I caught them "red-handed" in the act. See if you can relate my friend.
It's that time of year...lots of sunshine, outdoor activities, vacations and more. We're outside moving and grooving, soaking up the rays, splashing in the water and having an overall great time!
It's also the time to be extra diligent on staying hydrated!
While you may know everything we're about to cover, it never hurts to have a friendly reminder. 🙂
When you hear the word "mediation" do you immediately think of a monk sitting on a mountain top at sunset in the midst of a deep transcendent state of mind? Does it seem like only those who devote hours a day to the practice are the only ones who can benefit? Or maybe it's just "not your thing"...
I want to make a bold statement...meditation is for EVERYONE. Now, it's not often that we can make such a grand generalization, but in this case I think it's safe to say we can.
Welcome to the inaugural "episode" of Q&A Thursday! The idea here is to take a day each week and answer your questions. These will typically be videos but this week I ran into a technical glitch. As they say, "the show must go on!"
This week's question come from Diane.
You've been through this before…you've made the same promise to yourself - "I'm going to eat better."
If you hold the thought longer than a minute you may even make it so far as to take action on that promise for a day or two. The problem then becomes that "life" rears it's ugly head, you lose focus and your old habits take over and you're back on autopilot (not in a good way).
I'm here to tell you that it is in fact possible to make good on your intentions to eat well and live a healthier lifestyle. I also have some good news for you...it's not that hard. Sure it'll take some time (we'll get to that in a moment), but it's not as hard as you might think.
Let's go over my Top 4 Strategies to get you started down the right path.
