One Surefire Way to Lose Weight

scale

How can I lose a few pounds?

As a health coach, I get asked this question over and over again. And the answer is simple: MOVE!!

If you just want to lose a few pounds, get an extra 20-30 minutes of walking in a day. If you work from a desk, get up every 1/2 hour or so and move for a minute. The more you move; the more you lose. After just a few weeks, I promise you’ll see the difference.

Losing large amount of weight is indeed more complicated. And that’s where I come in as Health Coach. I counsel on habits, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle areas, relationships, careers and likewise. When you really want to shed a lot of weight, you really have to dive in with both feet.

I love working with my clients; whether its in person, over the phone, or through video chat. The personal connection and the relationships that are built while helping others achieve their health and life goals is life changing and so special to me.

I give no-cost consultations weekly.. and I’d love to chat with you! We can talk about where you are and where you’d like to be, and what we can do to get you there!!

Embracing New Beginnings

path 1

“It only takes one idea, one second in time, one friend, one dream, one leap of faith, to change everything, forever.”            -Anonymous

In the movie Stranger than Fiction, the main character Harold Crick, does the same thing, at the same time, every day. His daily routine revolves around the tick of his wristwatch, thus making his life extremely dull and predictable. But one day his watch stops and his life is forever changed. Being thrown into a world of uncertainty, Harold finds difficulty in adapting to the world around him until he consciously chooses to start embracing his new life.

Do you ever feel like Harold Crick? Are you fearful of stepping outside your comfort zone? Do you struggle with change? Often, the scariest part of beginning again is the transition zone that occurs between ending one thing and starting another. We make excuses and do whatever we can to avoid the pain of this fearful place. However, the state of transition allows us to evolve from within while making peace with the past and allowing the uncertainty of the future. It is truly the place where the most personal growth and transformation occur. Transition zones can be terrifying, but they can also be the most passionate and enlightening moments of our lives.

Starting again doesn’t have to be scary; beginnings can be exhilarating and freeing. With change come opportunities and the chance to see things from a different perspective. Beginnings give insight to our lives so we can see what is truly fulfilling us and what is not. The great perfection in beginning again, is that whatever happens next, you’ll be stronger, wiser, and richer for it. Remember, every day is a chance for a new beginning. You are an eternal being and whatever you have once dreamed… the universe still dreams for you.

May 2015 be your best year yet!

How to Stay Healthy While Traveling

plane

by Autumn Pappas, Contributing Writer

Keeping your immune system in tip-top shape while you travel starts with being well-prepared. Here are some tips on how to stay healthy while traveling this holiday season!

Get quality sleep and enough of it, especially the night before you leave on a vacation. Know how much sleep you need to stay healthy and what you need with you to get the best sleep possible. You often cannot choose what kind of bed or mattress you will sleep on; but you can bring other things with you such as a sleep mask, favorite pillow, comfy pajamas, or a meditation tape to help you sleep more soundly. Also, if at all possible, adjust the room temperature so it is right for you.

Stay hydrated before and during your flight by drinking water. Pressurized cabins dry out our mucus membranes, which in turn makes it more difficult for us to release toxins from our bodies. Pack your own blanket and pillow to avoid getting any germs from a previous passenger. Additionally, eat a healthy meal before you fly out.

De-stress each day while away whenever possible. Take a walk, stick your toes in the sand, read a book, or listen to a meditation tape. Notice when you feel stressed while traveling and choose effective ways to relieve your stress.

Bring healthy snacks, supplements and superfoods with you. Airlines and hotels typically have unhealthy snacks, and grocery stores are often not convenient to get to. Pack nuts, fruits, or trail mix for a quick on-the-go snack. Goji Berries are the perfect superfood to take on a trip! They are light, travel well, and are loaded with nutrients and vitamins.

Lastly, stay active while away to keep your immune system strong. Use the stairs, participate in your local exercise classes, or use your hotel’s gym if possible. Many vacation destinations also have bikes for rent.

Be happy, be healthy, be well!
