When it’s time, it’s time.

Make sure you take baby steps… “Inch by inch , it’s a cinch and yard by yard is hard”. Changing habits can be difficult, only if you let it. Just introduce or replace an old habit with a new one a little bit at a time… this will start a routine that can develop into a pattern and ultimately a habit.

Some of us have habits that aren’t the best for us and we don’t even know why.

Let me tell you a story: When I was a kid, we always had canned ham for Easter, you know, the kind you dress up with diamond slice marks, cloves and pineapple. Well our ham always had the ends cut off, so I asked my Mom why?

She told me that is what her mother did, so I then asked my Grandma why she cut the ends off. She told me that she never had a pan big enough…

So, is there anything you’re doing to your mind or body that may not be the best and you have no idea why?

Welcome to the Month of Health Awareness!!

What a great time to try some different things, for the mind and the body.

Exercise can be fun, forget the term “work”out… exercise is movement, why have we been so resistant to movement?? As the saying goes, “If you don’t use it you’ll lose it”. So let’s start moving.

Many of us have gotten in the habit of eating food that tastes good in place of eating food that is good for us. In my coaching, most people have just decided to be more mindful of what they eat on their road to being more healthy. So just start off being more mindful and you’ll most likely see the results.

And for the mind… Have you been stinkin’ thinkin’, or maybe need a check up from the neck up??? This month starts a new You!!! YOU are a WINNER, you see the positive and let go of the negative,  life is great and you are grateful and thankful for everything in it… because that’s the way you roll.

Remember, this month is not punishment, it is the opportunity to add years to your life and life to your years!!

Fired Up?

You bet!
I’ve been talking to a lot of people lately and their vocabulary has been changing.
From last years defensive talk of putting their helmets on and attempting to fend off the blows that the recession have been dolling out, to “enough is enough” and switching their mindsets, to that of going on the offensive – and making plans to charge ahead.

History has shown us that the times of greatest resistance has brought about the greatest opportunity, and the resilience of humanity has always fought back after the initial shock has sunk in, which has always turned things around…for the better.

I wonder if the recession had a conscious, it would have known that it “Poked the Bear” one too many times?

Should I do this…

Or should I do that?

Decisions, Decisions?

Remember – No decisions, is a decision.

When it comes to the decisions to “strap up” and start moving forward….the time is now.
Or, we can wait until we are younger, richer, or more better looking.

The government stated our…

Recession.started in December 2007.

Economics: a period of an economic contraction, sometimes limited in scope or duration as compared to a depression.
Wikipedia:

“Recessions or Crises since the Great Depression”:
There were 6.

3 lasted 2 years – and 3 lasted 1 year…so in doing the math, looks like they last an average of 1 1/2 years.

And the average time in between recessions or crises: 12 years
Things happen, over and over in history, no big surprise – until it happens.

Every Journey…

Has to start somewhere.

Whether the journey it is a camping trip, expedition, or our life.

Planning our journey, for whatever we have chosen, starts with us, and has no bearing of where we were before, in the past, with the exception of experience and what we have already learned which can help to guide us safely to where we want to go.

So we must not let our past dictate the journeys we choose, but just be an aid, and let our experiences help us for our future ones.
