2016: My Selfish Year

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-images-happy-new-year-young-man-handstand-beach-image58042964

 

That’s right folks. 2016 is all about me!
I will be investing in myself and becoming a better person physically, mentally and spiritually.
I’m not a guy that’s big on resolutions so this will be my one big all encompassing “sort of” resolution.
That’s what it’s all about right? We all strive to be better in the coming year.
So I challenge you to be selfish too! Look inside yourself and take care of yourself.
Be present! Be Happy! Be Loving! Be Kind! Be Healthy!
Just Be!
Positive Change comes when we learn to love ourselves first.
So this year, be selfish! Make it about you and watch your world change for the better.

Happy New Year!

Is It Time To Up Your Salt Game?

hseasalt2

We’ve all heard that it’s important to watch our intake of sodium. But, what if I told you there’s a salt out there that’s healthy for you! It provides you with 80+ minerals and elements, plus a variety of healthy benefits that will have you asking to please pass the salt with every meal.

So, have you heard of Himalayan Sea Salt? Yeah, it’s that slightly expensive pink sea salt the you see at the grocery store with all of the other salts. Why should I pay several dollars for a fancy pink salt when I can get a box of Morton’s for about .50 cents?

Here’s a hint: That cheap table salt you’re rock’in ain’t so good. Why? Table salt is refined and stripped of all of it’s minerals. It’s also chemically treated and the iodine, one of the main benefits of salt is manufactured instead of natural. That’s right, it’s processed!

Here are some incredible benefits of Himalayan Sea Salt:

  • Increases Hydration-It regulates water both inside and outside of cells.
  • Detoxes the body of heavy metals.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • It balances the body’s PH.
  • It regulates healthy sleep patterns.
  • Supports anti-aging.
  • I supports your libido- Woot! :)

Uses of Himalayan Sea Salt:

  • Cooking-Toss that table salt and bring out amazing flavors with your pink salt.
  • Bathing-Throw it in your bath for detoxification.
  • Great for decoration-Check out Himalayan Salt Lamps and how they bring energy to a room!

Well, there you have it. Salt is good for you if you do it right.

Have a safe and happy holiday everyone!

A Look Back On 13 Years Of Yoga

yogapic

 

 

13 years ago I walked into my first yoga class. I had always wanted to try it, but I really had no idea what type of journey it would lead me on. As I lay in a pool of sweat relishing those first moments, I knew that I would be back. I knew that I had found something that would be everlasting in my life. My yoga practice has made me healthier, happier and a better human being. So maybe you won’t have the life changing epiphany that I had, but here are some reasons that you may want to add a yoga practice to your life. Or at least check it out. 

 

It Calms The Mind and Reduces Stress-Our world is a constant bombardment of information and distraction. Staying in the present moment and remaining mindful takes a calm and focused mind. The meditative aspects of yoga can teach you how to breathe and stay calm throughout your busy day. Yoga also reduces the physical effects of stress on the body. When your body is relaxed, it reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol. It also lowers your heart rate and blood pressure and boosts your immune system.

It Increases Strength and Flexibility-Yoga helps to improve flexibility and mobility, increasing range of movement and reducing aches and pains. Yoga poses use every muscle in the body, helping to create strength in all parts of the body. It also helps to improve body alignment resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscle problems.

It Helps You Manage Your Weight-Yoga helps with weight control by burning excess calories and reducing stress. It also encourages a healthy lifestyle which can lead to healthier eating habits, activities and self esteem.

It Helps You Sleep-Exercise and lowered stress leads to better sleep. There’s no denying it. A regular yoga practice promotes restful sleep and allows you to function more in the present.

 

Yoga simply promotes a healthier and happier you. We all look for that little edge in life that takes us to the next level. For me that’s yoga. Maybe it could be for you too!

Are Your Supplements Getting The Job Done?

Supplement pic

I’m not a huge fan of supplements. I prefer getting my vitamins and nutrients from real food. But let’s face it, we don’t always have time to prepare that healthy meal or snack. So, sometimes we all need a great supplement to keep us healthy when we’re on the go.

The challenge with supplements today is that they are not regulated by the FDA or any other agency, so how do we know if we’re getting a quality supplement and if it’s really giving us the benefits we need?

The answer? Know your supplier. I know, it sounds like I’m talking about a drug dealer, But, in many cases it’s the same thing. Many supplement companies are not  practicing truth in advertising. In fact, they are just plain ripping you off. 

Here are some helpful tips when you’re looking to purchase a quality supplement. 

Know Who You’re Doing Business With
Always research a company and learn about their business practices and products before giving them your credit card. Make sure they are listed with the better business bureau and that they have an excellent rating. Check out consumer advocacy sites for any negative reviews.

Make sure they follow GMP requirements
GMP stands for “Good Manufacturing Practices”. Companies that follow these requirements are trusted names for supplement safety and quality.

Quality Assurance Testing
Make sure a company’s products have been independently tested by a third party to ensure quality and potency.

Finished Goods Studies
A quality company will provide finished goods studies and will usually be furnished with a “Gold” standard.

Yes, It takes a little research, but it’s your dollar so why not get what you’re paying for. These things are expensive! A favorite company of mine is BioTrust. Check’em out www.biotrust.com

If you want to learn more about the supplements you should be taking, then why not “contact me” for a complimentary health strategy session. I guarantee you will get only the highest quality coaching services.

Namaste Y’all

Be Mindful This Season and Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday

now_clock

Here we are again, another holiday season and the end of another year.
We all take time for reflection on the events of the past year and we make our resolutions for the coming year, but what about the now? The best present you can give yourself is living in the present.
This holiday season why not give mindfulness a try?
Living mindfully has shown amazing health benefits from reduction of stress, improved mental clarity, and above all happiness! Who doesn’t want a  little of all that for the holidays?
So you may ask yourself, how the hell can I ever live mindfully during this busy, stressful holiday season? Well, just live baby!
Stay focused in the present moment and experience what life brings your way, the good and the bad, and roll with it. See how you feel when you let go of what’s passed and quit worrying about the future. My guess, you’re going to have a happy and healthy holiday season.
So as we edge ever closer to new beginnings and let go of another year, I want to wish everyone an amazing holiday and a very prosperous new year.
If improving your health is on your list of resolutions, don’t forget to come see me for a complimentary health strategy session. You can“click here” for more info.

It’s Harvest time! Why Eating Seasonal Is Great For Your health

fall

As we head into a new season, it’s important that we start incorporating seasonal foods into our diet. When we eat with the seasons we get foods that are at the peak of freshness and we can take advantage of the nutritional content that we would miss with out of season foods. It’s also great for our environment. Here are some healthy tips for eating in season:

It’s good for you- Eating seasonal foods helps to support our bodies natural cleansing and healing abilities. When you eat with the seasons you replenish your body with a wide variety of important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutritents that you need to maintain vibrant health. 

It’s good for the environment- Eating in season and purchasing local reduces the amount of miles your food has to travel to reach your plate. It cuts back on the amount of fuel used and it reduces pollution.

It’s Sustainable- Seasonal foods that are grown organically are more sustainable because they are grown by farmers that care about the planet. By not using toxic chemicals, GMOs and by rotating crops to increase soil fertility, these farmers are producing healthier foods and protecting the planet.

It’s economical- When you buy seasonal organic and local foods you are supporting local businesses within in your community. You will also find that many local foods cost less than foods that are shipped in, thus saving money on your grocery bill.

It’s now fall and if the cool weather hasn’t hit you yet, it’s not far off. Make sure you adjust your diet and lifestyle to gain maximum advantage. You’ll be thankful and the planet will be thankful. Have a great fall and don’t forget to visit me “here” for great information and programs for your healthy Journey.

Namaste,

I Totally Dig The Farmers Market

Summer has arrived and all of the new growth is thriving. The leaves are back on the trees, flowers are blooming and gardens are taking root.  With the arrival of the new season farmers, local businesses and vendors join to sell their wares at community gatherings throughout the country. Ah yes, the farmers market. What a great place to go visit friends and make new friends and to taste, experience and support your local businesses. You can also get your grocery shopping done. So why go to the farmers market? Here are a few reasons to head there now. I guarantee you’ll totally dig it.

Connect with and support your community-The farmers market is a community hub where local businesses count on your support so they can bring you the freshest and healthiest foods and unique products. It’s a place where you can relax with friends and family and enjoy local culture even if you’re in a big city.

Inexpensive organic produce-Farmers markets provide a wide variety of organic produce that is less expensive than what you would pay at a grocery store. You get produce that is fresher and grown locally. Plus, you get to chat with the farmer that grew it. Pretty cool.

The Food Tastes better-At the farmers market you get the freshest and tastiest foods available right from the source. The produce is perfectly ripe and unaltered. The dairy is brought straight from the farm. Meats are naturally fed and free of antibiotics and hormones. It all contributes to better taste. Plan a meal and experience the amazing flavors and smells with friends and family. You’ll discover that the food from the farmers market rocks!

It’s healthier-This one’s a no brainer. Eating fresh, locally-grown fruits,veggies and meats are great for your health. You avoid the pesticides and herbicides, the GMOs and the alterations that happen to foods in grocery stores.  You get real food and what’s healthier than that?

It’s Fun!- Take the whole family, meet a friend for breakfast. I always bring my dog and she has a better time than I do. There’s a little something for everybody and it’s always good.
