Self Care BIZ Tips for BIZ-Y People: A = Awareness

Are you WELL  AWARE about what is going on with your health?  Sure I know you are ultra busy doing your daily to-do list, running from meeting to meeting, dealing with interruptions, putting out fires, eating out alot at lunch meetings, not always able to make healthy food choices, managing all your emails and social media, working longer hours than is humanly possible, missing out on family time, exhausted, never getting enough sleep, super stressed out – WHEW!  How do you keep it all in perspective so you don’t overdo?  Or have you already overdone?  And yes – your health and your career could be in jeopardy!

It’s time for some perspective on how you are living your life.  It’s time for some AWARENESS so you don’t crash and burn.  Here are some tips:

A – Allow time for yourself

Put ME TIME on your calendar every day.  If it’s not on the calendar it won’t happen. Before I fill up my week I schedule time for Jazzercise 3-4 times per week and that makes it more likely it will happen.  You may have to block out time for breaks and a “lunch hour” – yes, we used to give ourselves an hour for lunch, not 10 minutes to gulp down some fast food! You can also schedule an appointment on your calendar with yourself to do whatever helps you regroup and relax for a bit.

W –Weigh your priorities

What exactly is your goal for the day and how much time do you actually need to accomplish it?  Write it down and block out your calendar at the beginning of the day so when all the other distractions occur, you can better manage them by saying NO or delegating or making time on your calendar.  There is nothing more stressful than not getting something done you need to do before you go home, and then you either go home late to get it done, or you take it home and work on it in the evening during your family time. Not a great idea.

A – Act “AS IF” your life is manageable

The great thing about your brain is it responds to what you are thinking.  That can be bad if you are thinking everything is out of control, you’re frustrated all the time, you constantly use negative language –  your body then decides to open the flood gates to release stress hormones into your system and set you up for headaches, gut aches, all kinds of aches.  On the other hand if you think life is good, business is manageable, work is joyful, and only positive words come out of your mouth all day,  your brain can also be tricked into opening the flood gates to release “feel good” hormones and then you feel good and don’t have stress-related ailments.  So if you act “AS IF” all is well, then you will be well.

R – Reconnect with your true self

Who are you really, and are you fully expressing your true self in your work and home life?  If you are not being true to yourself, your body isn’t happy and you are setting  yourself up for stress once more.  If you are managing your own business, you must have started out believing that this is what you were meant to be doing – it was your destiny.  If it hasn’t worked out that way, then either it wasn’t your destiny, or you need to do some tweeking so the business reflects positively on you and your efforts and you don’t collapse and burn in the process. Take a day off to do some reflective work on whether this business is right – and HEALTHY – for you.

E – Engage with relaxation

When you are relaxed, there is no room in your body for a busy mind, stress, anxiety or sleeplessness.  Your body is calm and at peace and in a free and healthy state.  It is what your body wants and your mind can help you achieve this.  Do 10 slow deep breaths whenever you feel the stress building to activate your parasympathetic nervous system which is designed to calm you down. You can do this anywhere! Schedule relaxation breaks throughout the day and use techniques like tapping, progressive muscle relaxation, visualization of a calming place, or get some fresh air while taking a relaxing walk outside. Relaxation helps you create true awareness of how you are doing at any given time.  And it feels great too!

N – Notice how you feel in the present moment

The present moment is all we have and yet we often don’t stop and do a quick check on how you are doing.  You can set the timer on your computer, phone or watch to ping you as a reminder that it’s time to check in with YOURSELF.  Then do a quick body scan from head to toe to see if you are experiencing any stress, muscle tension, or pain and do some slow deep breathing to release the angst.   Also note your mental state.  Are you feeling negative or positive?  If you are feeling negative, say positive things like – today is a great day, I love being here, my colleagues are so fun to be with – or write positive words like, joy, peace, happiness, love.  These techniques will shift your mental state from negativity to positivity, and once again, your body will respond with less stress hormones and more relaxation.

E – Enjoy your life

Life – Balance should be your mantra.  If stress is the order of the day at work, then relaxation should be the balancing factor when you go home at night.    We don’t always make a transition from work to home and often carry the stress home with us.  Instead, use the drive-time going home to play enjoyable music or no radio at all. Look for great sights to appreciate like nature, a cool car you admire, kids playing – notice things that bring you joy.  Get out of your work clothes when you get home and put on comfy stuff that helps you complete the process of letting go of work.  Try not to bring work home if at all possible.

S – Sleep more

Most of us are exhausted!  Too much work and not enough rest will do that every time.  Getting enough sleep is crucial for what you need the most in your business –  cognitive functioning, good decision making, managing stress hormones, preventing weight gain and gut health problems and preventing mistakes.  Placing a value on 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is a challenge, but can be life-threatening if it doesn’t happen.  Add sleep to your priority list and schedule your bedtime and wake time so it has a place on your calendar.  After all, if it isn’t on the calendar it won’t happen.

S – Stay focused

A major challenge for any executive with multiple responsibilities and interruptions is to stay focused to accomplish what needs to be done. Keep as much structure in your day to stay on track.  When distractions occur, use triage thinking to minimize the impact.  Is it life threatening? Deal with it.  Can it wait? Schedule it into your calendar at your convenience.  Is it not appropriate for your attention?  Delegate it.

Hope these tips will create more awareness about how you can take back your life at work and at home.

Be Well on Your Journey

Spring Into Feeling Good Again

Spring is on the horizon and I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a little plump around the middle.  Even though I try to be active during the winter months, I still am less mobile and seem to rely on “comfort foods” more often.

But the sun is getting higher in the sky, and this means it’s time to start recreating my usual wellness lifestyle that I have let slide a bit.  And one of the best ways I know how is to partner up with a bunch of other people feeling the same way and doing a “Sugar Buster” program together.  After all, if it wasn’t for my addiction to sugar, I wouldn’t be eating all that sweet stuff that sabotages me every time.

How to Create a Positive Mindset for a Positively Positive Year

What happens to you when negativity takes over and you can’t see anything good in your life, your work, your day?  Does it mean you are losing your mind, or are you just losing your perspective? Is there anyway to turn around “stinking thinking”?

I know what it is like to get caught up in negative thinking and it never ends well.  The more you focus on negative thoughts, the bigger and badder they get and the bigger the toll it takes on your body, mind and spirit.  Being in a state of chronic negative thinking can make you sick!

“Many negative emotions such as anger, fear, and frustration become problematic when those emotions turn into a more permanent disposition or a habitual outlook on the world,” explains Emiliana Simon-Thomas, PhD, science director of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. And then you are at risk for ailments such as depression, heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, stroke, decreased immunity, inflammation.  http://www.health.com/heart-disease/can-negative-thinking-make-you-sick

So this is serious and no one wants to go down this path if they don’t have to.  But what strategies are available to break out of this cycle? Here are some ideas.

Awareness

Did you know you have control over your thoughts, and if you are always thinking negatively you can change that right on the spot?

Try this activity.  On a sheet of paper draw 2 columns side by side

In the left column, list all the negative words you can think of.

Once you complete the list, how do you feel?

In the right column list all the positive words you can think of.

Once you complete the list, how do you feel?

Notice that you feel better after writing the positive words and feel worse after writing the negative words.  So words matter!  Try to notice when you are using negative language and try to reframe it toward positive words when you catch it. This means paying attention to what you are thinking and correcting the thought before you speak it.

Practice

Now, identify what is leading to all the negative thoughts you are focused on and practice changing from negative to positive. Draw another 2 columns side by side.

List negative statements you make in the left column.  Ex: I get stressed out when I am at work.

Now rewrite each statement in the right column using positive words. Ex: I am grateful that I have the ability to provide support for people who need my services.

After you complete both lists, focus on the right column only and see if it changes your thinking from negative to positive.  Don’t give any attention to the left column because it will drag you down again.  Remember you have control over your thinking and you can only hold one thought in your mind at a time.  So choose which one you want to hold – negative or positive.

Tools

Positivity Self Test takes 2 minutes to complete. Your score provides a snapshot of how your emotions of the past day combine to create your positivity ratio. Do this as often as you want since it changes each time.  http://www.positivityratio.com/single.php

Loving Kindness Meditation.   This is a tool to improve compassion and resilience.  Practice it regularly to change your perspective. Access the recording from this link. https://ggia.berkeley.edu/practice/loving_kindness_meditation#

There are many ways to “refresh” your attitude and these are just a few.  As a wellness professional, I believe the answers lie within us. We just need to seek resources that will help us uncover our truths.  Bottom line is if you are stuck in negative thinking, make the decision to take a first step forward.  There are many resources available including wellness coaching to move forward with your goals.

10 Step Guide for a Rockin’ New Year

The word TRANSITION means the passage from one form, state, style, or place to another = CHANGE!  Some of you are cringing thinking about change, but others are thinking – BRING IT ON!  How many transitions are you experiencing right now?  

From holiday over-eating to New Year reckonings about weight?  From worrying about money to wondering what else you could do to increase your income?  From working in a job that you’ve outgrown to wondering what else you could be doing? From leaving the workforce to enter the world of retirement and not knowing how to adjust? Transitions are everywhere at any time and can be perceived as negative or positive.  I prefer the latter and have some thoughts to consider.

T – Trust your instincts.  Rather than be caught off guard when things change, take the high road and note what your gut is telling you about what it going on. Keep in mind the change you are experiencing might be just what you have been secretly wanting!

R – Reset your eating and exercise program.  Have you been stuck and know you want to get healthier but not sure how to make the first move? I’m sure you have dealt with this before, so reflect on what helped you be successful in the past and recreate those steps.

A – Adjust your thinking from I CAN’T  to  I CAN.  See yourself healthy, happy and whole.  Send time every day imagining yourself being your best and being grateful for all that you are and have.  Hang up pictures to visually represent what your goals look like so you can start living in that body even before you get there.

N – Notice what you need right now. Go outside right now for a walk.  Yes – right now!  By yourself!  Take a notepad and pen along because great ideas are sure to surface while you are walking and you may want to write them down before you lose them.  Focus as you walk on what you really need right now to move forward thru this transition. This will be your starting point.

S – Set goals in alignment with your values to create the life you love.  Have you ever taken the time to really ask yourself what you want? Yes, you know what your parents want for you, what your kids want, what your partner wants, and what you “should” want.  But what do you really want?  Write down 3 dreams you have for a more complete life and post it where you can ponder it.

I – Integrate all your skills into a single focus.  By now you have probably acquired a lot of great life and work skills that make you the fantastic talented person you are.  During this transition, you might find that it is time to put them all to good use and see what emerges.  Write down a list of everything you are great at – write until you can’t think of anything else – at least 30 things.

T – Train yourself for new skills.  After I had acquired all the skills I thought I needed in life, I opened up myself to what might be next for me – the key – being open to possibilities.  What showed up for me was “wellness coaching”, or some people call it “life coaching”.  When I was searching for “what’s next for me”, a friend coached me and after just 2 sessions, I had a new direction, a plan, and I was on my way again.  I loved the experience so much, I was trained to be a coach as well as a coach trainer.

I – Invite new opportunities.  When I was transitioning out of the workforce and into my own independent wellness business, I needed to figure out how to earn money while still doing the work I am passionate about.  Because I remained open to new ideas, I was presented with a way to help people get healthy as well as make the income I needed.  The key was to stay open to new ideas and give them a chance to see if they could work for you.

O – Own up to what is best for you. Not sure what direction to take as you transition?  Your guide should be how you “feel” about what you decide to do.  As they say, if it feels right – do it!

N – Now is the time to reinvent yourself.  I wrote a whole chapter on this in the book Wise Women Speak – Choosing Stepping Stones Along the Path.  My gift to you is a free download of this chapter by clicking here.   http://carolebert.com/meet-carol/free-ebook/

Enjoy the process of your transition.  Remember, it’s about the journey not the destination.  And above all make it fun!

What is a Sugar Cleanse and Do I Need it Now?

“Cleanses” have become super popular but not everyone understands what it is and why it is important.  No, I’m not talking about cleansing something off the outside of your body.  I’m talking about doing an inside job.  So let’s explore what cleanses are all about.

The Dictionary defines cleanse this way:  to rid of impurities; to remove toxins from the body.  Body cleanses have been around for centuries.  From the Egyptians to the Romans, people have always tried to rid their bodies of toxin build up.  And today we live in a toxic soup from exposures to toxic cleaning products, toxic fabrics that touch our bodies all day long and even at night, toxic mattresses, toxic air, toxic “new car smells” (yes that is called off-gassing from chemicals used). And then there are all the toxins on food we eat, whether fresh or packaged.

But what does that have to do with doing a sugar cleanse? Did you know that sugar is toxic to the body?  Maybe it wouldn’t be if we ate less of it, but presently we consume on average, 200# of sugar per person per year.  Our ancestors consumed about 22 teaspoons per year which was fine for the body to deal with, but today we are overloaded with it to the point that our bodies respond to as a toxic substance.  And therefore sets us up for “inflammation” which is now the root cause of nearly all chronic disease.

So how did we get so overloaded with sugar?  Back in the 60’s the sugar industry was studying the effects of sugar on the body and noticed a link with heart disease, so of course stopped the study and pivoted over to high cholesterol and high fat being the culprit.  https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/09/13/493739074/50-years-ago-sugar-industry-quietly-paid-scientists-to-point-blame-at-fat

Because of this most major health organizations got on board promoting low fat diets including the healthcare system. And to help out the cause, the food industry then created a myriad of low-fat food options, which coincidently were also high carb which translates into high sugar once it breaks down in the body.  So we started a grand experiment of the worst diet for health (high carb, low fat) which has led to skyrocketing rates of obesity, Diabetes, and many other chronic diseases, which we know today are related to inflammation. http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0057873

So back to sugar as the culprit.  We now recognize the link between sugar and heart disease but also to cancer as well.  https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/1819573

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/10/171013103623.htm

This is serious! And it is not getting any better since the food industry has upped their game with more sugary snacks on the market that are even bigger than ever.  You see it every day – giant sized candy bars, giant muffins, giant bagels, giant bags of chips, etc.  In addition if you are a label reader of food packages, you will see sugar has been added to 75% of all packaged foods.  A very subtle way to get us to like the taste of a product and so we want more and more.  Yes, most of us are addicted to sugar and can’t seem to stop.

Why can’t you stop eating sugar easily?  Because it is 8 times more addicting than cocaine.  It actually “hits” the brain at the same location as drugs which causes the release of “feel good” hormones and of course the addiction cycle continues.

So what is a person to do?  It is not easy to just stop or just cut back because of the addictive property of sugar overload.  That is where a sugar cleanse becomes useful. It is a process that allows your body to release the hold that sugar has on you by bringing your blood sugar back into control which in turn stops those incessant “carb cravings”. It changes your chemistry and gives you back the control you need to resist sugar and appreciate the taste of whole natural foods.  And they taste really good once you re-educate your palate.

Here’s what a quality sugar cleanse can do for you:

  •        reduces the load of toxins going into your body
  •        helps speed the process of removing toxins from your body by adding in cleansing foods.
  •        removes the most inflammatory foods and helps you identify foods that you don’t tolerate
  •        helps heal your gut which is one of the greatest locations for inflammation in the body.
  •        gives you tools that you can use in your everyday life after the cleanse.
  •        supplies optimal foods that fuel your body.
  •        supplies pharmaceutical grade micro-nutrients to combat free-radical buildup
  •        gives you support and holds you accountable.

What I find interesting is that the healthcare system probably won’t recommend this strategy for clearing your body from sugar addiction, probably because it doesn’t require using any drugs.  So if sugar is an issue for you, why not give a sugar cleanse a try.  Of course, beware of any sugar cleanse that is loaded with sugar!  So read the labels and make an informed choice, and then go for it.  

How might this help you with your New Year’s Resolutions?

3 Ways to Assess Your Wellness Literacy

Early in my nursing career, I remember developing frustration over taking care of patients who had conditions I sensed could have been prevented.  Of course I wasn’t taking the greatest care of myself either at that time.  What was really going on with me was not being true to myself by being a bedside nurse. I had an innate knowing that there had to be a better way to deal with my nursing career.  That “intuitive hit” propelled me away from the bedside and into the role of School Nurse which seemed a better fit for me.  I could now teach students, staff and parents how to stay healthy.  At least I thought I could.

What I soon discovered was I had a knowledge deficit.  I really didn’t know much about prevention and wellness, just all the medical skills of basic nursing.  That worked well for me doing clinical work in my job, but I was a novice at education.  I remember being asked to present a class on heart health by a science teacher, and because I was a nurse he assumed I knew everything about health.  As it turned out, he knew more than me and I was quite humbled by that experience.  I really felt I had let him down, was totally embarrassed and needed to correct that right away.  I knew I was not fully equipped to take on the role of prevention specialist, even tho I was a nurse.

So back to school I went to pursue everything and anything that was being offered on health education, prevention and wellness. And what I discovered was I had a lot to learn.  But I found it to be FUN and effortless and therefore knew I had found the type of nursing that I could excel at – Health and Wellness.  Before I knew it, I had completed a Masters Degree in Health Education and was perfectly poised to embark on my career as a wellness specialist.

Now back to the role of the traditional nurse.  Not everyone wants to abandon that role and I totally appreciate that.  After all I still believe nurses are awesome!  It is still the best background I could ever have pursued to get me to this next level which is a better fit for me.  We have a tremendous background on the workings of the body and illness and disease processes, but truth be told, we are not prevention specialists.

And yet, because we are nurses, people think we know everything there is about being healthy.  Today most people are looking for a way out from under all the drugs and surgeries that healthcare promotes, so I think nurses can become wellness advocates to help them find the way.  But first you need to assess for yourself if you have a knowledge deficit when it comes to wellness and prevention.  

So please answer these questions for yourself.

  1. Do you consider yourself an expert on how to prevent illness and disease?  YES   NO
  2. Do others expect you to know everything about how to stay healthy?   YES   NO
  3. Do you know more about taking care of diseases rather than keeping people well?  YES NO

Hopefully this was thought provoking.  My experience with nurses is they haven’t had the opportunity to focus on wellness because they are overwhelmed with all the chronic diseases they deal with daily.  So my invitation to you is to follow this Wellness Blog for Nurses http://allnurses.com/general-nursing-discussion/3-ways-to-1133982.html to start acquiring information and ideas that will help you build up your knowledge on how prevention works and how it will be the lifeline to a healthier future for our patients, ourselves, and the healthcare industry as well.

Optional FREE Bonus:  Here is a special Wellness Assessment that I use in my business that takes about 10 minutes and gives you 3 HIPAA certified reports that might be useful for you.  https://carolebert.usana.com/pwp/#/site/1009227/page/206504958

Health Risk Assessment

Healthy Lifestyle Plan

Nutrition Profile

And now please comment on whether people expect you to know everything about how to stay healthy even when you might not know, and how you handle that.

Time to Stop – Summer Sugar Shock

I know you are enjoying summer sun and fun and are in the mode of “whatever”.  I can break all the rules and indulge myself because who cares – it’s summer and I’m in a vacation state of mind.  That’s cool, but perhaps you have been over-indulging a bit with the sugar-rush that comes with a celebratory attitude.  Right?  I know I am doing that more now than usual.
What if I could offer you a sweet way out that fills your sweet tooth but doesn’t fill your body with that sweet toxin you just can’t seem to resist.
I’m excited to share with you the news that our 5-Day Sugar Buster Program, which I have used and promoted for the past 10 years (and it really works!) is NEW and IMPROVED and starts Sunday August 6.  Why is it new and improved?
Because it not only jump-starts a new healthy you in just 5 days, kills the carb and sugar cravings, adds back solid nutrition in the form of meal replacement shakes and cell-signaling technology in the vitamins provided, but also includes a “gut health” component which adds back good bacteria to set the stage for improved digestion.
Here are the features
Each “Sugar Buster RESET Kit” includes the following favorites:
5 days of “delicious” low-glycemic gluten-free meal replacement shakes
  • 8 Dutch Chocolate Nutrimeal™ single-serve packets
  • 7 French Vanilla Nutrimeal™ single-serve packets
5 AM and 5 PM HealthPak™ Vitamin packets

5 USANA® Probiotic stick packs to add back good bacteria to your gut

Helpful Program Guide with an easy schedule to follow and great whole food snack ideas

Here’s a short video of Dr. Karen Wolfe explaining the Kit to those of us who already use these products.  Thought you might like to see it too!

In addition there are 2 FREE calls with Dr. Karen for extra education and coaching, plus 28 days of followup emails for continued support.
But wait – there’s more!  I will offer optional wellness coaching for the full month so you will never be alone on this journey.
What’s not to love about all of these features!
And you won’t believe the new reduced cost. Just $99.95 plus tax and shipping.  Probably less than your grocery bill and meals out for 5 days.
Time to curb those carb cravings and get back on the path of healthy eating and releasing stubborn body fat.
Want to know more?  Connect with me by clicking the link below and I will schedule a call to answer all your questions.  Hope to hear back from you soon!

Deadline to register is July 26 so don’t miss out!

How to get your body moving

How are you doing with your food planning so far?  Got the shelves and frig re-stocked and ready for more healthy tips?  Your body loves good food but it also loves moving.

I don’t know if you are like me, but taking the time to exercise regularly always seemed more like a chore than a gift so I was reluctant to get into the habit.  So I learned to re-frame it from a have-to into a want-to.  I now think of exercise as a great stress management tool and because it works so well for that (without having to take drugs) I really want to do it and really enjoy and appreciate it.

How can you re-frame what exercise can do for you so you too will want to fit it in?

Take some time to think about how you’re going to find time to be active. Are you going to wake up early? Walk after dinner? Run during lunch? Schedule the time on your calendar, and write down what you want to do (bike, weight lift, yoga, etc.). And if you need to find a program to work out at home, look for something on YouTube. For example: search “no equipment 20-minute workout” (or however much time you have).

What’s your favorite time of day to work out?

What exercises do you like?
