This has been true for me … and it’s also been true for my clients!

That’s why I’ve created my latest eBook, the Good Morning, Good Night Ritual Guide + Workbook.

It’s designed to help you create routines that reduce stress, make your daily life easier, AND move you for…

Can you believe that we’re turning the corner into September!?

This is the perfect time to check in on how you’re doing with your 2021 goals for the year.

Are you where you’d hoped you’d be in terms of your progress … or are those goals a distant memory?

As we’ve taken a deep dive into aging this month, it can be pretty eye-opening to realize that your goals are about SO MUCH MORE than what size jeans you’re wearing.

Let’s talk about a topic a lot of people feel uncomfortable talking about:

DIGESTION.

When it’s working great, life is GOOD! And when it’s not, well … you can feel bloated, gassy, sluggish, and just plain BLAH.

Lots of factors can affect your digestion – including getting OLDER.

Research shows that about 40% of older adults have at least one age-related digestive problem every year!

That includes constipation … reflux … sensitivities to certain foods … ulcers … polyps … and more.

Plus, as …

Have you ever heard that saying, “It’s not just the years in your life, but the life in your years”?

I’ve got a fun one for you today!

It’s a test that can give you a hint about how well you are aging. If you’ve done this test before, it’s worth doing again to make sure you’re still on track.

It’s called the sit and stand test.

It was designed by Brazilian researchers, and their study shows it can help predict how long you’ll live (or … more precisely … how long you will NOT live).

To do it, all you need is a clear space on the floor. Stand in the middle of the floor, and lower yourself to …

We live in a complex and busy world. We constantly multi-task and our bodies live in a constant state of fight, flight, and freeze. 

We often feel we have to change our world for good things to happen. We will be happier when we buy a new house... get that promotion at work... lose that fifteen pounds. But maybe we just need to adjust our thinking!

Mindset influences everything: self-esteem, health, relationships, and careers. It’s often just as powerful as circumstances in setting the cours…
