Health - How to Create a Fitness Support Network

Written by

support network

Creating a network of support and throwing the message out to the Universe every single day that you are adopting a healthier lifestyle is the key to progressing into the true you. I’m not talking New Year’s Eve, early-January-type resolutions of, “I’m going to get in shape this year,” when a few weeks into February all of your health and fitness goals are forgotten. I’m talking true commitment, a whatever-it-takes type of attitude, “This is do or die.”

Written by

I recently went on a trip to Honolulu, Hawaii and happen to read about it being the #1 happiest city in America. Granted, it's on a pacific island that offers beautiful scenery and mostly sunny and warm weather. But, I started thinking about what creates the "aloha spirit" of Hawaii, which seems to exude happiness from all the locals there. Here are 4 essential ways I believe people in the top happy areas of the United States, and the world for that matter, achieve their happiness.

I recently got a chance to live stream into the Clinton Foundation's annual "Health Matters" conference in La Quinta, CA and it was very informative and thought provoking. The conference focuses on healthcare and wellness in the USA. I've put together a brief overview of the day's panel discussions to share with you so that you may see where we are at with wellness in America and what direction things are going in.

Health - Making yourself "Crazy" over Health and Fitness?

Written by

crazy

If you just can't seem to get the momentum on your exercise program going, and find a million excuses to skip the gym and eat bad things, it may be time to make yourself a little crazy! Yeah, that’s right - wacky, insane, and wildly weird about exercise and eating well. As adults we may have a tendency to over think things, dwell on the past, beat ourselves up, or worry about the future. To an extent we must do those things to be realistic about where we’re going and what we’re doing in our lives.

20% of people are ready to take action and make a change in their lives at any given moment. But why does it take a lifetime for some people to make a change, and others simply act on it and swiftly make lifestyle changes?

Health - Going Green is Nuts

Written by

Nuts are a healthy snack, chock-full of ingredients to help you stay in shape and lower your risk of heart disease. They do contain fat, but it's the good fat your body needs a certain amount of.

Food portion sizes have gone up drastically in the past few decades. Americans now eat 100 pounds more food per year, per person than we did back then. Our bodies just don’t require that amount of extra stored energy per meal or snack (which ultimately gets turned into fat on your body).

It's never easy to get a workout in when you are on the road travelling. Hotel chains like the Hilton have introduced cardio and yoga rooms where the workout equipment is right their in your room! However, not all of us can afford to have a private gym right inside of our hotel room.

Health - The Skinny on Eating

Written by

I always say that about 70% of getting into good shape and being healthy is food management. You can exercise "until the cows come home", but your efforts could be completely erased and nullified by the choices you make on meals and snacks. What I’ve learned throughout many years as a health and fitness coach is that if you think you are doing a good job on your food management, you are not. If you think you are doing a great job on your food management, you are only doing a decent job. And, if you think you are doing perfect, you are probably only doing a fairly good job. That’s how tough it is to eat properly.

The Supreme Court of the United States has "exercised" its power regarding the Defense of Marriage Act and California Proposition 8, and you and/or a family member or friend may now want to plan for a same sex wedding. So you gotta look and feel good right?

We all have family and friends that are in their 80's and 90's and maybe even 100 plus years of age. Many illnesses start coming with these ages that can slow down a senior's momentum in life. And should an unfortunate accident occur and they break a leg or shatter their hip, it can be debilitating and often leads to less mobility and a tendency for the senior to give up hope and settle in to a cripple mindset.
