How Can You Stay Active During A Busy Work Day

As a professional woman or an entrepreneur it can be easy to get bogged down with work. Let’s face it you have meetings, you have clients, and now that most people are home, you also have family duties. It can be extremely difficult to focus on your health and wellness. I completely get it. It can feel defeating when you make those brand new health goals to get that lean, fit body, all to realize that the day is over and you missed yet another day to workout.

 

Many women in the professional or entrepreneurial field like yourself have a tendency to put their health last because they just cannot seem to find the time in their schedule. This cycle continues for years and then the goals that were originally set are now forgotten. It is as if they have accepted that this is how their life is going to be. The business and/or workload now control their lives.

 

 

Now they feel drained and extremely low on energy because their work is their life and the needs of...

How To Feel Deserving

If you struggle with feeling deserving of all the good things in life you are not alone. Many people feel this way and for very specific reasons. Some people have experienced traumas that have made them feel so bad to the point where anything good feels foreign to them. Some people have experienced situations where every time something good happened to them someone put down their accomplishments and made them feel small.

 

When people treat you poorly or minimize your accomplishments it is super easy to not feel deserving. Those feelings of guilt creep in. You no longer feel worthy because someone made you feel less than. You feel as though good things are for people better than you. It is because of this mindset that you and many others sabotage the goodness that tries to enter their lives.

 

These are common behaviors and typical when abuse or neglect of some sort occurs. According to the International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice there is a relationship...

Is It That You Can't Afford Health Coaching? OR Is Health Not A Priority?

When I hear "I can't afford holistic health coaching" I actually cringe...

Here's why: As a holistic health coach I know how important it is to not only eat healthy, but live a healthy lifestyle. If both those areas are lacking in any way I know DISEASE, DEATH, and/or extremely poor quality of life is inevitable

 

SO

 

When I hear "I can't afford holistic health coaching" immediately I hear "I am not going to put myself first" AND "My health has to take a backseat". Let me tell you I have been there where I put my health on the back burner. Back when I was traveling and doing various speaking engagements I did not pay attention to my health as much. I knew my body needed rest. I knew my body wanted to eat certain foods, but I kept going against it, until ONE day it started to gradually shut down. My liver was damaged, my kidneys were not able to flush anything out, and because my body could not process protein, I started to smell like bleach.

5 Ways To Boost Immunity

Having a healthy immune system is imperative to achieving optimal health and improving quality of life.  When the immune system is healthy the body can fight off airborne pathogens.  It provides great defense against pathogenic organisms.  An immune system serves as a protective barrier.  It identifies and eliminates what it needs to support the body’s natural defenses.  The immune system is similar to that of a surveillance camera.  It is always watching.  Every part of the body is being watched by the immune system.  It consists of the lymphatic system, bone marrow, spleen, skin, bloodstream, thymus, lymph nodes, and mucosal tissue.  Immunity may not perform the same tasks as the liver or the heart, but it consumes enormous resources, which produces the large number of cells that it depends on for optimal function. White blood cells and red blood cells are important to cultivating a healthy immune system.

How To Manage Your Time As A Mom

 

Whether you are a stay–at-home mom or a working mom managing your time can be difficult.  You are not only taking care of yourself, you are taking care of others.  When you do not have good time management you can feel stressed, overwhelmed, and extremely anxious.  There is a sense of not feeling balanced and not at peace.

As a mom many people are demanding of your time.  If you are married with children then your husband and your children require your time.  If you are not married, but have children then children require your time.  Add working on top of this, well many people need you.  However you need yourself as well.  Managing your time is a form of self care so you can visibly see where you can find time for yourself and others.

When you are able to manage your time you can feel clear-headed and feel a sense of accomplishment.  Everything you set out to do that day you were able to implement because you planned ahead...

Can Stress Eating Make You Leptin Resistant?

There is so much happening in the world right now and it can be tempting to eat due to stress. Stress eating is the act of putting food in your mouth due to an uncomfortable situation whether internal or external, which is causing you to eat in order to cope. Many people stress eat and I have even had a long history of stress eating. Instead of getting to the root cause and using other tools to deal with the emotional unrest I was dealing with I turned to food.

My favorite food to eat when I was stressed was cheesecake, lots of cheesecake, lavender and lemon cheesecake to be exact.  I would get an entire cheesecake, which was approximately 8 slices and almost eat the entire thing.  I looked at eating lots of food as a reward for everything I was dealing with.  Who can relate to this feeling?  It’s the thought that you put in your head to make the food you choose to put in your mouth a valid option for coping with your specific issue.

I kept...

Are You Being Heard? [Your Husband Does Not Take Your Stress And Anxiety Seriously]

 

 It can feel isolating to have stress, depression, and anxiety.  Sometimes mental health issues are not recognized as a “true” illness.  It can be frustrating to wake up each and everyday feeling chronically unhappy, overwhelmed, drained, debilitated, and just not good.  It can be frustrating to feel all of these things and feel as if you are being dismissed because of it.

Some people have the mindset that only physical health issues are real and mental health issues are not.  This mindset really needs to change.  People are really suffering and their pain is real.  I struggled with depression, anxiety, stress, PMS for many, many years.  Trauma played a huge role in this process.  I will never forget when I was 11 years old watching “Dark Shadows” and not being able to get up off the couch.

I was so debilitated.  My stomach was having spasms, my tears stuck to my face and the sweat stuck my shirt to my...
