Happy Holidays to you my friends!
We are getting closer to that time of the year where we focus on navigating spending time with family… holidays gatherings… lots of food… lots of charcuterie boards… gift giving… traveling… parties… kids… cooking… baking… doing ALL the things during the holidays.
What do your holidays look like? Do they tend to be a little crazy?
Maybe your holiday season last year was incredibly quiet, so this year if you plan on seeing more people and being more active it might feel a bit more overwhelming. Last year things were still shut down in New York for the most part so our holidays were really quiet.
Not a lot of people were traveling or were able to travel last year because of the pandemic (depending on where you live), so maybe integrating back into a busy holiday season feels like a bit of a shock after experiencing an extended period of quieter times.
Self-Care has always been a popular a buzz word. When we think of self-care, we tend to think about getting a massage, or spending the afternoon with a friend to get a manicure, or taking a bubble bath, or going to a yoga class.
Pre-covid we incorporated self-care into our busy lives when we could. We knew it was important and felt proud of ourselves when we actually followed through with making it a priority.
At the very beginning of the pandemic and into the summer of 2020, my husband and I were focused on exercising, eating healthy, meditating, and doing whatever we could to take care of our health and wellbeing.
Our stress levels were incredibly high so keeping our health in check was important. I was trying to keep my businesses alive, we were worried and unsure about our daughter’s school situation, at one point during the summer we were dealing with evening curfews in New York (which was crazy!). Then we were pretty sure my husband got Covid… and the list...
Yes! I am on the Celery Juice wagon. The Medical Medium has won me over and I am a Celery Juice convert.
I wish I would have known about all the incredibly healing properties of this magic herb earlier… but I guess timing is everything.
I’m halfway through my 30-Day renewal program and as a part of this program I’m drinking 16 – 24 oz of fresh organic celery juice every morning.
My morning routine basically looks like this:
6:45 am: Drink 20 oz of water with 5 Super Amino Tablets from Purium.
7 – 8 am: Go for a hike with my husband and our dog.
8:30 am: Drink 16 – 24 oz of fresh celery juice.
9 am: Drink my Purium Power Shake
As you can see from my schedule I drink my celery juice on an empty stomach, then wait 30 minutes before consuming anything else (including water).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t add anything to your celery juice when you drink it, if you want to receive the most benefits. No lime… no...
One of my stories is that nothing ever works out for me.
It’s been playing over and over in my head a lot lately. The voice has been getting louder and louder… especially over the past few years.
If I were to sit down and make a list of all the things that have worked out for me, I’m sure it would take a significant amount of time. It’s not lost on me that throughout my life I’ve achieved a lot and have been very successful. Intellectually I know that I’ve accomplished a lot. I recognize that I’ve had many incredible experiences and I’ve lived an amazing and fulfilling life on so many levels. But my story is that I can’t do anything right… nothing works out for me… why do I even bother. Blah, Blah, Blah!
I KNOW that everything happens for us (and not to us)… I KNOW we create our own realities and circumstances… I KNOW our challenges help us to learn and grow and evolve… I KNOW the...
I learned about them from Dr John Amaral, who studied with and was mentored by Dr Donny Epstein.
The 4 Sacred Seasons are Discover, Transform, Awaken & Integrate.
When you’re in the season of Discover, shit is hitting the fan so-to-speak. Life has thrown you a curve ball and you’re being asked to discover something about yourself that you’ve been avoiding, suppressing, numbing, resisting… all the things we do as humans to evade the stuff in our lives we need to take a closer look at, acknowledge and accept about ourselves or our situation.
Transform is the season when you are full of energy and you take massive action! It’s actually more painful for you to NOT take action in this season. You see the future… the future is now… you set goals and work towards achieving them. You feel invigorated, motivated and excited about what you’re creating so there’s a lot of momentum and action.
In this post I’m going to get into how our minds work and I’ll walk you through why who you are right now is the sum total of the thoughts that are always playing in your head.
Who are you right now?
Are you stressed out?
Are you overweight?
Do you live in fear most of the time?
Wherever the buck stops, let’s first review what your thought patterns are, then how you can MASTER THEM, and ultimately achieve your desired outcome.
If this is your first time here, let me introduce myself. As an international entrepreneur, a success coach for women, and a speaker, I own a number of businesses, I travel a lot, and generally have a pretty hectic lifestyle.
Training my brain has helped me with everything I’ve achieved and want to accomplish. Whether it’s a big goal, or smaller action step, focusing my mind in the ways I am going to share with you has been a...
