Increasing Your Health Wealth

“You’ll either find a way or you’ll find an excuse,” Mel Robbins.
Wow. I came across this quote while reading over the holiday and it really rang true

Whether you made any New Year’s Resolutions or not, you’d probably like to feel good and avoid disease, right?

Answer this without thinking too hard or censoring your answer: What is one thing that you’re doing consistently that, if you changed, it would open up the doors for you to gain better health and not have as many symptoms like low energy, cravings, weight gain, poor sleep, or body pain?

Maybe it’s saying YES to taking that walk, saying YES to fresh veggies with your dinner, or saying YES to sticking to your bedtime.

It doesn’t have to be big. What’s one small, healthy action you can replace in your life right now?

What is one small action you can do consistently that will increase your health wealth (the investment that is ALWAYS worthwhile)?

Start there.

If you’re interested in skyrocketing your health wealth, having a customized plan so that you can regain your health, fix your symptoms, and get the most out of your life, I’d love to talk with you.

Until next time, I’m wishing you Unstoppable Health!

3 Secret Tools for Staying Healthy & Slim This Holiday Season (Part 2)

Last time, I shared 3 secret tools with you so that you can stay slim and healthy this holiday season. In case you missed it, you can access those tools here.
Today I want to share 3 more secret tools with you so you can have an amazing holiday and go into 2018 feeling unstoppable!

3 More Healthy & Slim Holiday Secret Tools

1. Celebrate earlier in the day and get to bed at a reasonable time (lack of sleep weakens your immune system and also leads to poor blood sugar balance (translation: your body will want to store fat and you are more likely to get sick). Staying up later on occasion can be okay, but making a habit out of it will certainly make any goal you have that much harder.
2. If you drink alcohol, sip on drinks and savor them to keep alcohol intake lower. Also have a glass of water in between drinks.

3. Do some emotional “prepping” before partying. This cuts down on nervous eating and drinking & keeps you mindful so you can enjoy socializing even more. Emotional stress is taxing to your physical health: Your hormones, weight, energy, and immune system all suffer when you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed or anxious.

Some great ways you can keep your emotional stress level down are going outside for fresh air or a walk, mindful breathing, journaling, repeating words of encouragement or a motivating mantra to yourself (in your head or out loud), thinking of 1-3 things you feel grateful for, enjoying a 3-minute Pleasure Meditation, or using a HeartMath Inner Balance biofeedback device. You’ll benefit the most from doing some emotional prepping in the morning before getting out of bed, at night before going to sleep and a few minutes before going to a party or event. Start by picking one of these ways to prep and do it once a day. You can even do some of these preps while you are waiting at a traffic light, before eating a meal, while drinking water…with awareness, it easily fits right into your day!

Have you met anyone who enjoys yo-yo’ing health? Me neither. If you’re ready to get off the seesaw, all it takes is willingness and replacing the tools that aren’t working for you. These tips will help you feel and look great all year long. Pick 1 of these tips to get started living smarter, not harder. Good health is your greatest asset in life! When you feel good, you engage with life more and enjoy life more. Everybody wins! You absolutely can too.

Until next time, I’m wishing you Unstoppable Health!
