Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power. ~ Shirley MacLaine
Staying inspired requires doing one’s best and avoiding negativity. When our focal point is unhappy things, they only seem to multiply squeezing out inspiration. Finding or unearthing the good in a situation or circumstance takes work and is an art form.
Negativity surfaces in many forms. Sometimes people we are close to see every inconvenience as a crisis. At times trying to share inspiration and joy with someone results with them wanting to shut you down and then their proceeding to complain about life. Similarly, you may endeavor to look at the […]
Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment. ~ Anthony Robbins
What I like most from the quote above is — achieving goals isn’t what makes […]
If you can pick it, pluck it, milk it, or shoot it, you can eat it. ~ Suzanne Somers
It is troubling to me when I hear something like this:
I think the most discouraging thing with Dr. Simeons’ theory is when he says you can go back to normal eating and still hold your weight does not seem to work out very well.
And yes, that is an actual client quote.
First, this person was correct. However, before starting to doubt the process, consider this:
Yes, it was Dr. Simeons’ “theory” that after the protocol it was feasible to return to “normal” eating. Remember, a […]
Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. ~ Daniel Boorstin
Just a decade ago, the words probiotics and were rare. By now, while most have heard the words; all they really know is it has something to do with gut health.
Who knew digestion of food, our basic energy source, would be the prime focus in the total health world today? More and more science is saying digestion, and in conjunction, elimination, are two of the most important body systems we can work on to achieve optimal health.
So what are probiotics and prebiotics and how can […]
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. ~ Unknown
Do you remember vehicles with a “reserve” tank? If you were running out of gas, it took a simple switch from the main tank fuel supply to the alternate or reserve tank.
With the next fill up, sometimes closing off that reserve tank was forgotten. The next time you ran out of fuel; it was all tapped out.
Running on empty is exactly what most of us have been doing to our bodies.
Total Body Health, to me, is the most prized […]
Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment. ~ Zig Ziglar
How many times have you read the book “Pounds and Inches” by Dr. A.T.W Simeons?
I have seriously lost count of the number of times I’ve read through its pages.
From my first round, it was a constant daily companion, keeping it by my side and reading from it every day.
In fact, when I first got it, I read it twice in the same day – front to back.
For me, Dr. Simeons’ words were enlightening and rang true. I had finally found something […]
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. ~ Groucho Marx
Happiness is a choice you make from within.
Choosing to be happy is like finding and buying a new pair shoes; you want them to fit well, feel good, look great and make a statement about who you are.
If the shoes were uncomfortable and looked bad on […]
To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself. ~ Simone de Beauvoir
While standing in a grocery store checkout line, glancing at all the magazines, suddenly it seems they are staring back at you. You see gorgeous models with perfect faces and bodies. As your self-consciousness heightens and now feeling ashamed of your body, you are certain other people are also comparing your body to the flawless cover girls.
Who, with all the photo shopping; in reality, don’t even exist. See example here.
In that moment, your body image plummeted and tanked.
Your body image perception; and more […]
