Most people are complacent when it comes to their health. Although most people honestly believe that health is one of the most important things in life, their actions and even their other beliefs say different.

Long term successful weight loss is not about eating less food for a limited period of time. To experience successful weight loss, it is important to examine our relationship with food and our body. The last 2 posts talked a lot about our body but what about our relationship with food? Understanding why we eat is critical to ensuring that we don’t overeat and we don’t fall into a myriad of diet traps. (more…)

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned the importance of loving yourself and your body just the way it is. I also acknowledged how this is not necessarily an easy thing to do. Many of us are so focused on the negative and the things that we want to change.

I came across this quote and simply had to share it.
“The old saw ‘what you don’t know can’t hurt you’ just isn’t true when it comes to body chemistry, nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle. Ignorance leads to poor nutritional choices, chemical deficiencies, and the kinds of diseases that prey on an undernourished body and shorten the life span.” – Dr. Bernard Jensen (more…)

Did you know that the kitchen is the room that contributes most to both our health and our wealth??
In the Organize 4 Health program, we spent 5 weeks simply focused on the kitchen…. yes, it is that important!!!
Not only is the kitchen the place where we house and store our food but it is also where people gather and according to Feng Shui, it is highly symbolic to our wealth.
In addition to giving your kitchen a good pantry, refrigerator, and spice closet makeover, decluttering the cabinets and and clearing off the countertops can make a world of different. Not only can it make it easier to prepare healthy, nutritious food, but it can enhance the energy flow in your life.
I recently interviewed Ann Bingley Gallops of Open Spaces Feng Shui. During the interview, Ann provided us with some great tips including: (more…)

This is the time of year for planting. Many of us are planting vegetable seeds or flower seeds in anticipation of fresh vegetables and beautiful flowers.
We usually spend a lot of time and energy caring for our plants. We feed them, nurture them, enjoy them, and appreciate them. Why not do this for ourselves?
This spring, I encourage you to grow right along with your garden. And here’s how:
- Decide what seed you want to plant. What area of your life do you wish to cultivate? Maybe you want to change an old habit or maybe you want to add some quiet time to your schedule. Whatever it may be, chose to “plant the seed” that calls to you (not the one others want you to plant).
- Decide where that seed will grow and thrive. In other words, plan out how you will begin to implement this new goal, habit, or desire.
- Plant the seed. Begin taking action. Follow the plan you designed and put the plan into action.
- Feed and water your plant. Continue to take action. Take the time you need to acknowledge yourself for your successes and give yourself space for setbacks. Revisit your plan and adjust as is necessary.
- Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Take the time to celebrate your accomplishments and success. Reward yourself and allow others to celebrate with you. Share your achievements.
- Appreciate the growth and beauty. Appreciate how you have grown. Appreciate who you are as a human being and all that you offer the world. Appreciate the manifestation of your gifts.
