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 […]
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 […]
I would recommend Biz as a coach to anyone who is interested in making real change in their lives.
I had ideas or maybe just many fleeting thoughts about what “healthy” living is supposed to be but had nothing that was really about me or my best health. I felt overwhelmed with all the choices and opinions out in the world about how to achieve health or what to eat or how to exercise. I was working at a very busy pace, dealing with burnout and not feeling fulfilled or in line with who I really am. I didn’t have the […]
I know it’s been a while. But it’s like riding a bike. It’ll all come back to you. ~ Unknown
Bike riding is so commonplace we use it as a cliché for learning and retaining new skills.
This is referred to as muscle memory; however, it has nothing to do with muscles, but rather the brain.
What is muscle memory?
Permit me to explain … however, please keep in mind I am not a psychologist and this isn’t a psychology class so will do my best to explain this phenomenon and then will even show how this relates to Whole Body Health. ::giggle::
Psychologists usually […]
