Natural Anxiety Relief
Did you know that reports of anxiety are up 25% over the past couple of years?
I personally think this number is low since anxiety shows up in different ways for different people … and it’s not always easy to recognize it as anxiety.
A few ways it can show up: feeling restless or agitated, having headaches and/or unexplained pains, trouble focusing, feeling tired, disrupted sleep, worrying, or rolling the same-old, same-old thoughts over and over in your head.
One of the best natural ways to …
You're Welcome! My 3-Step Excuse Buster
Has this ever happened to you before?
You’re planning on making dinner after work … but as soon as it’s time to start cooking, you start to think:
- I'm too tired
- I don’t know what to make
- I'm too hungry to wait that long
- I have too much to do
- I'm stressed
- I really just want to watch something on Netflix
And you’re tempted to give in and hit the drive-through (or make the takeout call).
I get it!
By the end of the day, making dinner can seem like a LOT of effort in your head…
This Could Have Been Really Bad...
I’m going to tell you a little story about a crazy week I had a while back. And I’m sharing this because I’m 99.9% sure you can relate.
It all started when my schedule suddenly became unexpectedly crazy (work & home).
Which meant I didn’t get a chance to work out as much as usual, or even get outside to take a walk.
And because I was busy, my food choices were more “grab & go” than normal. And, of course, I didn't sleep well.
Which made everything feel even crazier, which made me crave even…
Are You a Stress Eater?
If you've ever had a stressful day (or year) that affected your eating habits, you are NOT alone.
In a study, more than 75% of adults said that stress played a role in their eating during the past month.
This included overeating eating junk foods, or not eating. Many of them said it happened weekly.
They also said it made them feel sluggish, lazy, disappointed in themselves, and/or irritable.
The good news is that I have a few tips below to stop stress from getting in the way of your results…
The Number 1 Enemy of Your Goals
If you could call out the #1 enemy of your goals, what would it be?
There are so many to choose from:
- Not having enough time
- Lack of support
- Not knowing what to do
- Your genetics
The list goes on and on!
But what if I told you that none of those things are actually your enemy. (Seriously!)
That’s because … drumroll … the number one thing standing in between you and your goals is:
We can ALL get in our own way from time to time.
Here are just a few ways we let it happen…
This D-Word is a Game-changer
Setting goals is great.
And setting FUN and meaningful goals is even better.
But what happens AFTER you light that spark of motivation?
Here’s one of my favorite quotes:
“Motivation will get you going, but discipline will keep you growing.”
The other day I mentioned how our brains are hardwired to like trying new things (aka fun goals).
Well, I believe we’re also hardwired to admire discipline.
Just think of all the inspirational movies that have become classics over the years!
Your Personal Energy Crisis
Did you know we are in a personal energy crisis? Studies show that most adults feel tired at least three days a week, and some of us even feel tired every day.
I’m going to be focusing a lot this month on how you can actually CREATE more personal energy.
And I’m kicking it off with a completely achievable list of ways you can set yourself up for a high-energy day.
The best part is that none of these suggestions will take you a long time … and they actually WORK!
9 Easy Morning Habits to Boo…
Strengthening Your Immune System
I’ve got a hot topic for you in this email. And if you ask me, it hasn’t gotten enough attention over the past couple of years.
It’s your immune system, and here’s why I think it needs more attention.
Your immune system is basically like your very own Marvel superhero universe, working hard to protect your body 24/7 from invaders.
Here’s the overlooked part: when you strengthen your immune system, you actually create a fitter, stronger, leaner, and healthier body.
Strengthening your immune …
Take Action to Get Results
The other day I outlined the only success formula you’ll ever need to get the results you’re after.
ATTENTION + SUPPORT + PROVEN PLAN + ACTION = RESULTS
But there’s something you can do to make that winning formula a MAGIC formula.
It’s probably the only “hack” or “secret” I endorse (because it just plain WORKS).
Identify your top 2-3 specific actions that will get you there the fastest (safely).
And then just give THOSE your attention and focus. Don’t let yourself get bogged down with all…
Put This Formula on Repeat to Get Things Done
We all have that one thing (maybe more!) we are great at.
- Nailing that headstand in yoga class
- Keeping our checking/savings accounts balanced
- Home DIY projects or organization
- Cooking a big meal
It’s true, you might have some natural talent for those things. But the reason you got “great” at them wasn’t because of the talent.
It was because you gave them your attention and energy.
You also probably had some guidance (whether you know it or not!).
It could have been learning from a …
