3 Cravings you must have in the New Year

3 Cravings you must have in the New Year

  1. Craving to meet new like-minded people and expand your circle of friends
  2. Craving to make a difference in other people’s lives
  3. Craving to get healthier yourself

Now if that sounds like something you can commit to, and you don’t mind taking the time and energy to make that happen, then you are in the right place right now.  Of course if this is not your desire, you may stop reading now, but I do wish you a very happy and healthy new year!

For the rest of you, want to learn more?  Read on.

As I ended my career in the corporate world and branched out on my own,  I realized I still had more to offer and craved these 3 things.  I never saw myself retired so I knew I had to create a new path for myself that would still be fulfilling personally but would also allow me to continue making a difference in the health and wellness of others.  The path I chose fell into place because I was OPEN TO POSSIBILITIES  and was WILLING TO TAKE CALCULATED RISKS.

If you are at such a crossroads as this, then I have 8-STEPS  that moved me forward into a place of new challenges, renewed energy, exciting possibilities, more relationships and support than at any other time in my life, more fun and travel, better health (I thought I was super healthy, but found out I could do even better) and even opened a path to financial security (that was a bonus!)  Believe me this was a welcome surprise to me at this time in my career and I felt rejuvenated and ready to tackle a NEW BEGINNING in life.  So are you ready for a new beginning this NEW YEAR  too?

SHIFT Happens

There’s a shift going on.  Can you tell?

Warm to cold.

Light to dark.

And most recently, beautiful fall days have descended into rainy dreary November 

How does this effect you?  Take it in stride?  Or resist it all the way? I always try to put a positive twist on things so here are tips to approach all these changes.

S – Settle into it and “go with the flow”

H – Honor the changes as the natural rhythm of the universe

I – Investigate any resistance and make peace with the cause

F – Feel the energy of the transition and the new refreshing energy that comes with it

T – Treasure this universal flow as a gift

So how will you proceed with this annual shift of the seasons?

I would love to invite you to hear a recorded call from Dr. Christiane Northrup that will enlighten and inspire you as you face the transitions  going on.

Embracing Transitions: The power of making a change

In general, the vast majority of people on this planet resist change. For many, change brings on anxiety and a fight or flight response. And for the outliers and early adopters, who drive innovation – they see change as an opportunity. The good news is resistance is dynamic. Whether we are running from or toward ‘CHANGE’ – it ignites an inner power and heightens our awareness for interacting with the world. Transitions can be transformative.

Astrologically, since 2012, Saturn has been in Scorpio clearing the playing field for what no longer works, our shadow side emerged in order to be healed with lots of endings,  particularly in relationships. This year Venus has danced with Mars 3 times, with the finale on November 2nd.  All in the service to make us whole, teach us to stop projecting our power onto others and ultimately take responsibility for our experience. These are the attributes that can make a transition a transformation, whether you’re an empty-nester, ending or just beginning a relationship, embarking on a new venture, retiring from a job or finding yourself in menopause.

Please join Dr. Christiane Northrup and her sister Penny Northrup Kirk to hear more about CHANGE as opportunity and how you can more easily trust the process!

Burn Baby Burn

It’s fall, foliage is starting to die off, dry leaves  are in piles everywhere – and instead of feeling down,  it brings me joy!
happy_baby_in_leaves.jpg
I Iove gathering it all up and burning it on a beautiful fall day.  Great exercise, great smells and fills my need to have a fire and burn something until it is all gone and back to nature.
Metaphorically speaking, it’s another way of looking at getting rid of something that I need to let go of that no longer serves me so I can welcome in what’s next.  In this case – Winter.  A season I am never ready for each year but when the hint of the first snow fall is upon us, I get very excited and just can’t wait.

 

So what are you still hanging  on to that is not serving you? Is it time to let that flame die out and allow yourself to be open for the next great thing coming for you?  When you release what you no longer need, you make space for something new.

 

I would love to hear what you are willing  let go of and the hint you have of what is coming next.  Click here and tell me all about it!
And if you need some coaching around that, let me know that too!

Your Challenge Today – What’s age got to do with it?

This is my current thinking about my life today. The numbers keep piling up but I still feel and think the same.  So do I define myself by what society says my age should be like, or do I challenge myself to accept that I am growing older but I have an ageless outlook that cannot be defined with a number. What about you?  Do you still “act your age” or act as if you are ageless?  Here are my thoughts in my latest video.

So what are your thoughts on the numbers  game?

Recently, has your age-number stopped you from doing what you truly wanted to do?

Is your age-number holding you back from being all you can be?

What would happen if you forgot about your age-number and did just what you wanted to?

 

I would love your comments about this.  Click here and let me know!

Be well on your ageless journey!

FINALLY – An EASY Way to Get Moving

Why are we so resistant to exercise?  The CDC says 80% of the US population doesn’t get the recommended amount of exercise for health.  So which group are you in – the 80% or the 20%?  Are these some of your excuses when it comes to exercise?

  • I tried it before and I always stop after a few weeks
  • I don’t feel better right away and in fact I hurt all over.
  • I don’t see the benefits soon enough so why even start again
  • I don’t have the time
  • I’m too tired at the end of the day
  • I’m too busy to fit it in
  • I don’t need to exercise because I am on my feet all day
  • I’ve gotten this far without exercising so why start now
  • I’m too old to start exercising and I might hurt myself
  • I have a health condition and can’t exercise
  • I’m too lazy

Well guess what.  I fall prey to many of those excuses as well, but at one point in my life I realized a huge benefit from regular exercise and I’ve never stopped since.  Watch this video and find out what it was.

Yes exercise became my tool to MANAGE STRESS.  Now that I use exercise as my stress management prescription, I’m much more motivated and have received huge benefits that continue to keep me coming back for more.

  • I get to burn off all the pent up energy that can turn on my body and create pain
  • Moving my body immediately changes my attitude from negative to positive
  • I get to be around other great women who want to feel better which inspires me
  • I feel better being with others
  • I’ve gained many new close friends to share feelings and reduce the anxieties of life
  • We get to laugh a lot because our instructor is so fun and pumps us up
  • My endorphins also get pumped up and I “feel” what others call a “runner’s high”
  • I forget about all the day’s irritations and just focus on my body’s movements.
  • I get really creative when exercising and come up with cool new ideas for my work
  • If I feel any depression at the beginning it all dissipates while I’m working out
  • I feel a great sense of accomplishment at the end and feel relaxed and calm
  • I sleep better

And oh yes – people ask me how I stay so fit and think I am younger than my age.  Now that is the best self-esteem booster of all!

So what are you waiting for.  Stop thinking of exercise as a chore, or torture or a waste of time.  Start thinking of it as a way to reduce stress (who doesn’t experience this daily) and you don’t have to take any drugs either.

Still need some support to get up and going? I work with others who are stuck and need a good coach to inspire them into action.  I can do that for you.  Just contact me here.

Be well on your exercise journey!

Getting Older is Looking Better and Better

My head is still spinning after viewing Dr. Christiane Northrup’s latest PBS Special Glorious Women Never Age.  Inspiring, energizing, educational and entertaining. She is the role model we all need as we continue on this path of aging – oops – drop that word and replace with living agelessly!  That’s what she is all about and that’s what I am all about too. How about you?

Here are a few nuggets from this powerful show – and now a DVD if you were able to pledge to support PBS.

  1. Reframe the Term Aging

Words affect our biology so we need to use “feel good” words instead of all that negative talk like aging leads to deterioration and decline, which is how many of our institutions frame the aging process.

  1. Address and Change Cultural Programming

Your beliefs about aging are more influential on how well you age then what the culture dictates to you. So tune in to those cultural messages but don’t adopt them.  Reject them and continue with your own “healthy” path.

  1. Stop Participating in Ageism

Don’t fall prey to saying  “I’m having a senior moment” when you forget something.  Remember it is probably due to information overload rather than pathology.   And stop saying  “I’m too old to do that or wear that”.  Says who!  I’ll bet you can come up with ageisms on your own.  Remember, growing older is an opportunity to increase your value and competence.

  1. Enjoy a Sweet Life by Keeping Your Blood Sugar Stable

We consume far too much sugar and it is leading us down the path to inflammation, obesity, Diabetes, sugar addiction, depression, stress, I could go on and on. This is a critical issue we must deal with if we are to be ageless beings. Start adopting a low-glycemic lifestyle and you will be amazed at how much better you feel.

  1. Don’t Take Life Sitting Down

Get moving and stay moving to allow gravity to exert it’s “pull” on you and keep muscles and bones from deteriorating.  Astronauts living in a weightless environment without gravitational pull return to earth deconditioned.  So get up every hour off your chair where you are experiencing weightlessness and move, jump, run around for 10 minutes!

  1. Develop Centenarian Consciousness

People over 100 have these characteristics in common.  Rebellious, defiant, future oriented, have a positive outlook, use rituals of pleasure, aren’t obsessed with age, don’t like to be around old people.  Some great ideas here to consider for your plan on living agelessly.

  1. Establish a Sub-Culture of Anti-Aging

We all need good support to thrive so create a variety of “tribes” to belong to.  Hang around healthy positive people and remember – Community = Immunity.  You all will benefit from each other by creating something special that is not old or young but something else.

Hope these tips peak your interest and to go deeper, I highly recommend Dr. Northrup’s book Goddesses Never Age – The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality and Well-Being.
