Did you have a great morning today!?

If you did, it probably wasn’t by accident. You either:

  1. Made the decision (even if you didn’t consciously do it!) when you woke up to have a GREAT morning. And/or …
  2. It was great by DEFAULT because you’ve created your own morning routine that set you up for a successful day!

What you do in the morning can set the tone for the ENTIRE day.

It’s kind of like the domino effect.

And it’s not just the “day” that gets set up for success …. it actually creat…

First, I want to wish you a very happy Labor Day! I hope you get outside and have some FUN today! 

Do you ever struggle to get out of the house in time for work/school – with no plan or schedule.

Have you experienced a “clothing” emergency? Is there frequently a daily last-minute struggle to slap deli meat or peanut butter between two slices of bread to bring for lunch … as well as some yelling and sometimes even a few tears?

Not to mention fighting over the bathroom! Or doing battle over the…

Have you ever gone through a time in your life when you felt “in the flow”?

Wasn’t it GREAT?

You had LOTS of energy, your sleep was on track, you felt productive, and you were positive and optimistic. Not to get woo-woo … but you felt “in sync.”

Chances are, one big reason was that your body was running in its natural rhythm – basically, following your body clock. And it turns out there’s nothing woo-woo about it.

I have a quick and powerful tip to get back to that feeling if you’ve lost it.…

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.

Don’t get me wrong. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having weight- or…

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

DIGESTION.

Caring for the Caregiver john-moeses-bauan-8YVaEljM-9I-unsplash

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 …

I have a little assignment for you today that might lead you to a delicious weekend project!

Go into your kitchen and look inside your pantry … and then open up your fridge and take a look in there, too.

BUT there are actually foods that help FIGHT a major factor in aging. Plus, they can re…
