It’s January, the time of year when people like me in the health and wellness business normally launch a detox program and write about how to develop healthy habits. This year, instead of doing that or setting any big goals, I’m pausing and realizing that if I’m overwhelmed with all the get-healthy e-mails and social […]
Morning rituals are important because what we do first thing in the morning sets the stage for the whole day. This is the time we’re least likely to get interrupted and can accomplish things we most want to get done. Rituals help us start off on a positive note and give us a sense of […]
Yolanda Hadid writes about her battle with Lyme Disease in her book Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease to help bring awareness about Lyme (a tick-borne illness), which is becoming epidemic and is poorly understood by conventional medicine. Yolanda goes from being a TV star of The Real Housewives of […]
Taking a few minutes out of your day for simple self care practices and to relax is so important. When you don’t take time for yourself, your life can start to feel like a treadmill of all work. Try scheduling time for you into your week and you will feel the difference in your levels […]
There are many studies proving that practicing gratitude does amazing things for our emotional and physical well being and is one of the easiest and most direct routes to happiness. When we’re caught up in the busyness of our lives, it’s easy to forget sometimes that we have so much to be grateful for. We’re […]
You’ve probably heard the saying, “You can’t go home again.” A friend once said it to me when I expressed regret about leaving England 33 years ago, and I agreed. When I moved to the states with my first husband, the deal we made was that I would go back to visit once a year. […]
I often get questions from people who are thinking about becoming health or life coaches, or who are enrolled in a coaching program. If you’re one of them, this post is for you. The idea of having freedom and quitting your job to work from home in your yoga pants is tempting to a lot […]
Why is it that we get in our own way by self-sabotaging our success? Why can’t we keep to goals and get what we want? Most of us start with good intentions but instead find ourselves struggling, or becoming paralyzed by fear and self-doubt. It’s not that we don’t have willpower or are lazy, it’s […]
We tend to think that pursuing wealth or buying something we really want will make us happy, but research shows we would happier spending our money on experiences, not things. According to Psychology Professor Thomas Gilovich of Cornell University, we adapt to our possessions after the newness wears off, but we remember experiences for […]
I just got back from The Feminine Mastery Retreat in Maui, where I learned how to “manifest my dreams” and “emerge as a butterfly.” It was led by my mentor from last year, Cyndie Silbert, the author of True Calling. I decided to work with Cyndie while working on my coaching certification, because I started to […]
It’s that time of year again when many of us are thinking about making our New Year’s resolutions. How many of us actually keep them, though? According to this data, about 45 percent of Americans made New Year’s resolutions in 2015, with losing weight being at the top of the list, followed by getting organized, […]
We’ve all heard the expression that someone has “presence.” You think of a person walking into a room being so magnetic that people are drawn to them. To me, presence isn’t really the same thing as having charisma; it’s more about projecting confidence in ourselves. It’s an outward way of being that affects how others […]
If you’re not familiar with Bulletproof™, it’s one of the leading companies specializing in human performance. Dave Asprey, the founder and CEO of Bulletproof, has an interesting story: he’s a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who used to weigh over 300 lbs; he spent a lot time and over $300,000 “biohacking” his biology (basically […]
I recently got back from the 2016 Bulletproof Biohacking Conference in Pasadena, CA, September 23-25, and it was even bigger and better than last year’s conference. I haven’t heard the official attendee count but about 3,000 people were expected. It was a fun, party-like atmosphere, and, as always, free Bulletproof® coffee was flowing nonstop. I […]
A friend once told me I had no joy in my life, so I immediately got defensive and responded that I did. When she pressed me for an example, all I could come up with was that my only joy was taking my dog for a walk. How sad is that? Don’t let that happen […]
In today’s hectic, connected world, we’re so busy and distracted by all the information coming at us, that we’re just living on autopilot and don’t realize that our nervous systems are stuck in the “fight or flight” stress response. When we’re in this mode, we’re producing cortisol, which is really detrimental to our minds and […]
