7 Reasons Why Your Next Hire Needs To Be A Health Coach

 

rw0412weig_16_2220_0

Millions of dollars are spend each year on health care, preventive care, medical technology and education. Yet every year thousands  of Americans are diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes due to rising obesity levels.

Americas waistline gets larger by the day and unless we wake up and do something about our own health and nutrition this health crises will just continue to grow. You can get yourself out of health crises with the help of a health coach guiding you to make the right choices for your personal divine health and nutrition.

The well-rounded knowledge a health coach provides on nutrition, diet and exercise is something your doctor does not know much about as it is not their field of expertise. Keep in mind today’s doctor has 1 class of overall nutrition in medical school. So when faced with finding a solution to elevated cholesterol, triglycerides or weight loss a general answer from your doctor most likely is “diet & exercise” and “a prescription for xyz”.

A certified health coach, myself included, is trained in over 100 dietary theories and lifestyle coaching techniques to help you discover what exactly is holding you back and what is going to bring you success. A health coach will not only customize a nutrition and wellness plan according to your goals and desires, but also encourage you to make small attainable health and lifestyle changes.

You get a plan tailored to your unique specific needs, out of hundreds of diets and exercise plans that a health coach takes into account, there will be only one that will set you up for success. It simply comes down to the fact that no one nutrition plan works for everyone. A health coach understand that we all have different needs, obstacles and health concerns through taking time to get to know you, your current diet, your health and wellness desires, what diets and exercises you have tried in the past and your medical history.

By implementing small changes, one at a time, we will find what works for you so you can achieve all your health and wellness goals. Taking into account physical, emotional and lifestyle factors and fitting it in with they way you live, will ultimately lead to your vibrant transformation.

With a health coach you got a healthy-living advisor, a supportive mentor, not a drill sergeant. A health coach will help you achieve the goals you have together, motivate you and keep you accountable trading your old habits for new ones.

Emotional, mental, physical and spiritual support come also along when hiring health coach. You might just wanted some nutritional support, getting you healthy, some exercise tips, but a well trained health coach takes all of the above into account when working with a client. The ultimate goal of a health coach is improving your quality of life, health and well being through effective sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes.  

A health coach demystifies all the information available online, in books, magazines, TV and social media keeping  you from overwhelm. The right health coach will guide you to find the right exercise for you, provide you with a personal nutrition plan and recipe suggestions based on your unique needs.

A health coach can be a a helpful mentor on your journey to your divine health and wellness.

The side effects of a healthy lifestyle include some fabulous perks such as lower medical bills as you have less visits to your doctor, increased energy and vitality through clean eating (no more sugar crashes), balanced cortisol levels ,also due to healthier eating habits, keep your stress level in check and finally your self confidence and self worth will up level as you become more health-oriented and notice changes in your physical appearance.

So if you have previously been unsuccessful in achieving your health and wellness goal on your own why not seek the help of a certified health coach. Take your self care to the next level, be unapologetic about it and own your health and well being.

You only got this one life, why not make it the happiest, healthiest and divinely inspired one you know you so desire to have!

3 Tips To Transforming Your Wellbeing

Untitled design

If making your health and wellbeing a non negotiable, than you are more powerful than you give yourself credit for. Sure there will be times you doubt yourself and face challenges along the way, but if you preserver and push through I know you will drive and succeed in achieving your desires and goals.

Here are a few tips I came to live by when I started out on my journey to divine health and living my life to its fullest every day.

Commit

Listen to your intuition and make yourself , your body and wellbeing top priority by transforming the way you think and feel about food, exercise and every day living. Adapt a 90/10 rule with your time, resources and attention flowing to feeling and looking fabulous. Include clean eating, exercising, journaling, meditating and lifting your vibration every day by living life to its fullest. Incorporate daily self care rituals that elevate your femininity, revitalize and rejuvenate you.

Upscale

Set your bar for divine health and living higher every single day. Surround yourself only with the finest and purest people, healthy food, gorgeous fashion, luxury travel and all life has to offer you. Create an environment that does not expose you to anything harmful, toxic or disruptive. Allow yourself the level of self care that has you showing up looking and feeling your best. Be the queen of your life!

Live

Get crystal clear on your desires and goals creating your  signature health and life on your terms. If your dreams don’t scare you, you are not dreaming big enough. There is no need to limit yourself to the slow lane. Set up the support system needed to make it all happen and have you at your A-game at all times. You  CAN have it all, a meaningful career, great relationships, divine health and a luxurious lifestyle.

You  are probably  thinking easier said than done. But as I have said many times before, if its not you who takes care of you, who will? Are you going to be okay with mediocre and watching everyone else around you follow their dreams living their life to its fullest through divine health?

Creating WOW Factor with the right Style

 

Most of us women seek out mentors, coaches and trainers to guide us when the time comes to up level our business, life or health. However, when it comes to our wardrobe and style, few of us would actually hire a professional to help us sort through the world of fashion do’s and don’ts. I always thought I had great style, knew what suited my body well and what didn’t.  Personally I also thought hiring a stylist was a waste of money, after all, I enjoyed shopping for new clothes, shoes and all  things beauty.

And how about after you lose  10,20, 30 pounds, you worked so hard for it and it’s finally time to get yourself a new closet full of clothe, shoes and accessories to show of that gorgeous body of yours. Do you know where to start? I get this questions frequently, women all excited to finally spend their money on something new, beautiful and luxuries only to be totally overwhelmed by the amount of shops, styles and all things fashion.

I was one of them until I met Marcella at an event she was speaking at. Luck had it I happened to win a consulting session with her. Needless to say after an eye opening style and color consultation, she has quickly become my go to image consultant  for my wardrobe, make-up and style questions. Knowing what colors and styles work for me and my body, where and how to shop has saved me countless hours of searching for the right outfit, shoes and make up. Time I would much rather spend at the spa, enjoying life and doing what I know I do best.

Today’s woman entrepreneur can choose between an Image Consultant, Personal Shopper and Stylist to get her looking like the successful girl boss she is, representing her brand and rocking her business Knowing which one is right for you is key.

So let me introduce you to Marcella as she helps you to de-mystifies the right type of expert to hire to upscale your look and be the best version of YOU!

I often get asked the difference between an image consultant, personal shopper, and fashion stylist.  Since “personal styling” is a relatively new industry, these terms can mean different things for different people, and sometimes “stylists,” “shoppers,” or “consultants” use these terms interchangeably without necessarily having relevant training or experience.  So here is my best explanation:

Image Consultant – Someone who is professionally trained to create an image for a person or a company as a whole to achieve their overall goal, branding and unique personally or mission to upscale their image to attract new clients, wealth, a mate and or confidence to name a few.

Image Consultants help determine a person’s or a business’s unique personalized style, most flattering  colors for wardrobe hair and makeup, factoring in lifestyle and goals, current wardrobe and budget with a personalized a plan result in transformation over the long term. As trained individuals, in all or the majority of the following; color analysis, makeup, body profiling, fashion personalities, wardrobing, personal shopping, etiquette, body language and communication skills and they are able to take the bigger vision for the client and related it in a way most suited for the client or company’s overall image. Their work can include presentations and seminars and one on one consulting.

Personal Shopper – department stores and sometimes smaller chains offer a personal shopping service.  A personal shopper is an associate that works for the store, may or may not have specific training, and is generally paid by commission.  Personal shoppers are great if you are loyal to one store and want a one stop shop.  The difficulty comes when building a well rounded wardrobe or if you like a variety of styles (specific stores can only offer you their selection) or are difficult to fit (options and styles are limited).  One drawback being commission-based, their interest could be about selling more clothes than discovering the person’s style or what is most faltering.  They also do not factor in what you currently own in your wardrobe to integrate new pieces and show you how to wear them.

Fashion Stylist –typically work for photo shoots, fashion shows, and magazine spreads.  This is the most artistic/creative side of personal styling, as the idea is to push boundaries and show creativity, not necessarily create everyday looks but can show you new possibilities.  Also, models tend to be a certain body type and looks can be adjusted (think hidden pins and clips, plus Photoshop) so what you see on the page may or may not work for your body in real life.  One of my favorite parts of fashion styling is the access to the latest trends, designers, and pieces, often before they are even available in stores.  An asset of a fashion stylist is the ability to take what’s new and make it look eye-catching and attractive, so you’ll be inspired to try it yourself.

Hopefully these definitions have answered some questions and will make your styling choices that much easier!

Tuning Into YOU

 

To life a happy, healthy abundant life well all comes down to making the right decisions at the right time. Bold moves and even the smallest choices we make daily ultimatly predict our happiness, success and woes.

 

Hope in the palm

Deep down at our core we all now what we are capable off and know what is best for us. However as the years go by we take on habits, thought patterns and beliefs that derail us from our true self. Being able to listen deep into your heart and soul and really hear your inner truth becomes a challenge for many of us.

Thankfully re-learning to tune into your intuition is just like coming back to the gym after taking a sabbatical. You too can reverse this with a few easy steps retraining your intuition just like your spiritual muscle we talked about a few weeks ago.

I can tell you from my personal experience that knowing when its your intuition speaking or your thoughts going crazy with you is not easy to differentiate. But with time and practice you too can hone in to your inner wisdom and hear clearly what your intuition is telling you. Just like creating your healthy body this is a gift only you can give to yourself.

No matter where you are on your journey, start by working out your intuition daily, just like you would meditate and exercise.

  1. Clear out the mental clutter, get rid of anxiety and delete stress from your life. Making your mental and physical well being top priority and a non negotiable is key. This includes relaxing bath, spa treatments, getting plenty of sleep and down time as well as meditating and journaling.
  2. Restore your mind-body connection by finding a workout you love to do, whether its yoga, zumba or kick boxing be present and pay attention to your breathing and how you feel afterwards. Regular exercise will improve your mental focus, clarity, help you sleep better and increase your mood and energy level. Since intuition is something you feel deep down, being in harmony with your body matters.
  3. Let your feelings guide you and choose what makes you feel amazing. You can start practicing the next time you are out shopping. Rather than thinking logically about the use or cost of something ask yourself whether you love it. Its always a good idea to listen to our body and senses, they are there for a reason.
  4. Stuck and don’t know how to continue? Ask the universe rather than thinking it over and over again. Work through questions on what your next step in business, with family should be or how to take better care of your health by putting pen to paper and letting it flow asking for divine guidance. A regular spiritual practice, however that may look like for you,  will give you the foundation and strengthen you and your deepest inner wisdom.

“Prayer is telephoning to God, and intuition is God telephoning YOU.” ~ Florence Shovel Shinn

Visualizing & Creating Health that Inspires

 

 

ac1d3e9c463547707b407246fc0a6b1f

We all know vision boards are tools that help us clarify and maintain focus on specific goals we have in life, career and business . You create a collage of pictures of what you would want to see in your life, achieve in your career or business, simply what life will look like when you reach your goals. But what good are all these things when you are not well, when you are not at your vibrant best due to health challenges and can’t even enjoy your achievements to the fullest and highest vibration possible.  Shouldn’t a healthy body, mind and soul be included on your vision board?

Having visuals to represent your divine health goals and desires are powerful tools to focus your mind, strengthen your confidence  and inspire the actions needed to make it all happen. On a subconscious level your mind really doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagination, yet it influences your life daily on what you attract, how you behave and go about life. Practicing affirmations and mantras over and over again reprograms your subconscious mind puts you in higher vibration and ultimately up levels you.

Creating a vision board to have in front of you out in the open as a daily reminder, to immerse yourself in and mediate on will imprint your goals and desires even further into you subconscious mind. How many times in your life have you had a “deja vu”. It happened to me more than once only to realize that whatever was in front of me or I was experiencing was part of my vision board, something I kept visualizing and desiring for a period of time.

Think about the times you flipped through magazines, Instagram or Pinterest. How do these gorgeous, fabulous and breathtaking pictures make you feel? Don’t you just want to hop on a plane to the Amalfi Coast or buy that stunning dress right there and then? You are filled with excitement and that’s the kind of high vibe energy you want to bring into your life, health and well being every single day.

To build a vision board that supports your ideal health and wellness goals  I put together three tips that surely will set you up for success.

  1. Get Crystal Clear on Your Goal(s)~ not getting specific enough because you are afraid it won’t happen anyway is not going to serve you here. Fear of failure never produces the desired outcome. Narrow your goal down to its smallest detail. Is it a certain amount of weight you want to lose? Do you want to tone your arms and legs? Look and feel vibrant like your favorite A-lister? Get of medication? Make better food choices? Add pictures of a dress or bikini you desires to wear to a special occasion, vacation or event. Find images of your favorite healthy foods and new ones to try. Is there a time in your life you think you looked and felt your best? Add a picture of it!
  2. Up- level on a Personal level ~ add inspirational affirmations, mantras and quotes to your board that raise your confidence, courage and desire to create the healthy body you want. Let life support you in every possible way and include taking care of yourself spiritually, physically and creatively. How would you like to further develop yourself? Is it attending a yoga retreat? Checking out a cooking class or trying a  Barre class? Create a mediation practice? Perhaps its hiring a personal trainer, chef or coach ? Use beautiful pictures that show how it would feel and look to be in these places or have someone in your life to support you on your health journey .
  3. Create Your Best Life~ be the woman who unapologetically goes for the healthy body she desires and wants.  Taking care of your body and health amazingly carries over into all aspects of your life. Do you want to create your dream wardrobe when you have reach your ideal healthy weight/body? Visit your favorite spa more often? Be more visible in your business, with your family and friends?  Scan  magazines and Pinterest for images that paint the picture of your dreams and represent who you desire to be and what you want to attract into your life.

 

It might be a bit overwhelming at first to get started, it might be even a stretch for you to faith in something that is new to you. I know you are committed to seeing your desires through and achieving your goals, give yourself permission to creating a vision board that keeps you happy, healthy and excited in high vibration at all times.

The Art of Receiving in 6 easy Steps

 

I am sure you or someone you know has brushed off a compliment indented to make you or them feel better with a comeback that was anything but a simple show of gratitude.  No matter how hard some people try, their compliments just don’t find a landing pad, bouncing off again and again. Most women can not receive a complement, especially if it is spoken in truth. We shake our heads, duck in embarrassment, push them away and laugh them off.

Who’s to blame? Where does it stem from?

I’d say it is pretty much in our DNA, from young on women are shown and told to do and give for others – whether that’s family, friends, clients or their community – it’s always everybody else first. Women suck at receiving, we can’t take it, don’t even know how to take in hard earned rewards because we are so blocked that we push it all away without even noticing.

Even when we have a good thing going for us, a happy marriage, a promotion at work, success in our business or for life just moving along great. We don’t even see this as our own accomplishment, our very own doing and giving. Until one day when all comes crashing down on us and we feel emotionally drained, physically ill, exhausted and resentful.

What it really comes down to is simply our lack for self  love. And to receive the love, gratitude, touch and attention coming our way we need to love ourselves first. While we certainly can go out get another self help book on  Self Love, Emotional Healing and such we can also simply start by opening our receiving channel

hands-receiving

Some simple tips on how this might unfold:

  1. Start by responding with a “Thank you.” the next time you receive a compliment and take an  extra long breath to really take it in.  See how that feels.
  2. Compliment yourself when finished with a difficult task, a mile stone reached and just because, even for the smallest of things. Take a good look at your self – You deserve it! 
  3. Express gratitude daily! From simply tipping the salon girl more to sending “Love Notes” (thank you’s) it will make you feel divine from the inside out.
  4. Do good for you, practice self love and self care by taking extra good care of your body and fabulous you, the more fabulous you are to everyone around you the more fabulousness’s comes back to you.
  5. Pay it forward every day in one way or another. This might just be paying for a cup of coffee for the one behind you in line, giving up that parking spot closer to the door  or wiping the gym equipment for the next person to use.
  6. And finally just say YES to life, self love and receiving!

And no, this does not make you a silly, selfish or arrogant woman. As I heard one great woman, Mama Gena, say “Unacknowledged  good turns to s**t.” and I don’t think any of us really need more of that.

Remember the more you receive the more you can give.

The Art of Balancing a Healthy Body

 

Most of us think of the difference between healthy and sick as black and white. That disease is something outside of ourselves, taking over our bodies and making us sick every now and again. Western Medicine tents to work that way, waiting until strong, painful symptoms appear  and only then prescribe medications and treatments. Unfortunately this can in many instances come too late or have long term consequences.  We ourselves ignore subtle signs that something is wrong physically frequently. As long as there is no obvious symptoms we think all is well and our body is just humming along.

Traditional Eastern/Chinese Medicine, Chiropractors and Acupuncturists few the body differently. Here truth is the body is always working to stay healthy by fighting disease and staying in balance. Disease happens when the body can’t reset itself and breakdown occurs within. This will create illness such as the common flu to more serious diseases such as cancer.

Looking for the root cause of disease, pin pointing the cause and removing it should allow the body to heal itself and naturally bring it back to balance at a cellular level. For this holistic balancing act to be successful several key components such as the emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, social and environmental are to be considered. There has to be a yin and yang balance, one complements the other working together to bring back equilibrium.

While Western Medicine separates the body and mind connection when looking at disease, Eastern Medicine always considers both, however trends show we are seeing more physicians incorporating a more integrative approach to caring for their patients as more information and studies come available.

Here are few tips to keep your body healthy, glowing & in balance as you create and live your healthy life.

  1. Practice Mindfulness – make your mental health top priority. To be at your A-game  you need to stay focused, positive, sharp & untitledpresent all the time. Life happens, so to not go into drama or loss it, practice daily meditation, gratitude, journaling and prayer to clear your head.
  2. Have Fun – we all have a full life and in order to maintain a healthy body we must balance our emotional, physical or spiritual wellbeing. Go move your body and have fun with your family and friends.
  3. Reboot Often– find your personal favorite way to rejuvenate your body. Whether it is a day at the spa getting relaxing body treatments, a massage to clear away any tension, a detox wrap or a sauna visit, it will boost your wellbeing and give you that healthy looking glow from the inside out.
  4.  Keep it Natural – balance your nutrition style with natural supplements to optimize nutrient intake and keep natural remedies at hand for the sniffles and such. One of my favorite books is Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health by Rosemary Gladstar full of natural remedies for the entire family. At the same time get yourself acquainted with a medical practitioner in functional and integrative medicine who combines modern technology and a holistic approach.

My personal experience has taught me that really the best way of preventing disease, burnout and total shut down is to simply living a  balanced life. Desiring to live a long, happy and healthy life requires prioritizing every aspect of your personal wellbeing.

Transformation with easy Ayurveda

 

13108_234082316728480_1746762943_nA few years ago while pursuing my degree in Alternative Medicine I spend one semester learning and exploring the world of Ayurveda under the watchful eye of a fabulous Ayurvedic Doctor, teacher and mentor. Had it not been for my many other responsibilities with my children and family I might just have put in another 7-10 years (that’s how long it takes according to my professor) getting my Doctorate in Ayurveda. I did however incorporate many of it’s philosophies into my and my families life and continue to pass on some of the simple principles to my clients.

If you are interested in bringing some of it into your life, let me share some of this fabulous ancient wisdom with you!

The ancient practice of Ayurveda dates back over five thousand years in India’s history. The philosophy of Ayurveda translate from Sanskrit as “knowledge of life” and teaches that each of us is bound by similar energies, patterns and environments, yet totally unique in our own. Ayurveda is a way of living in tune with your body aligned with the earth to achieve optimal health and success. Creating a plan for your everyday life that is exclusively yours through it’s holistic approach.

Working with  as an Ayurvedic Practitioner requires one to develop a holistic approach to health and wellness as well as the ability to focus on what makes each patient unique. A intuitive Ayurvedic Practitioner will not only ask questions about your personal life, career, business and health, he or she will finish your session with integrating an Ayurvedic analysis of body and spirit. Helping you to better understand your body that much more.

According to Ayurvedic practices what you should eat or do is different for each and everyone of us. The same goes for how to improve our health and how you should live life to its fullest. There are four principles from the base of the system that are the perfect place to start for beautiful health.

 

The 3 Doshas

In order for you to create your best life it is key for you to understand your body and knowing what your predominant energies are. Ayurveda identifies three different energies also known as doshas, VATA, KAPHA and PITTA.

Each of us is made up of a unique combination of these energies that manifest themselves in our desires, features, metabolism and personalities. For the norm most of us are made up of a combination of two doshas, rarely anyone is only one or a mix of all three. As we grow, get older and move through life and its many different seasons, the changes we experience throughout impact the doshas influences on your body and mind. To determine your make up take a quiz online.

And with that be open to change, don’t deny your hearts desire and what you love. In Ayurveda it is all about moderations and adjustments, rather than restrictions, of the things you love and light you up.

Deficiencies whether emotional, nutritional, physical or spiritual show up through addictive cravings or persistence of things that are clearly not serving you. A Ayurvedic practitioner can help you dig deeper finding the imbalance and creating new practices to enjoy or foods and herbs to add into your nutrition style.

Practice Pleasure

Ayurveda long understands that an imbalance of lack of pleasure effects the body by showing signs of depression, weight issues all the way to serious medical conditions. I am sure at some point in your life you experienced how if you wait too long to listen to your inner voice, typically something will come about that you just can’t ignore any longer.

So if you want to avoid burnout,  an emotional crises or illness the best way is to practice pleasure now, in your nutrition style, personal life, spiritual and work life.

 

Tune In                                                                                                                                  

Do you feel out of tune when you wake up too late in the morning? Do you feel different energies levels, desires and appetites throughout the year as the seasons change? Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of living in rhythm and harmony taking the environment into account all along as it is super important to our all around wellbeing.

Meaning wake with the sun and sleep at night a good 8hrs. (10pm -6pm), schedule your eating to the best of your abilities for optimal digestion, eat local seasonal foods whenever possible. Understanding this and your body’s needs will have you sail through life vibrantly.

7 Health Benefits of a Massage

 

It’s no secret I love self care, receiving regular massages, body treatments and the nurturing and relaxation of luxury spa experiences. I see how taking care of me does wonders for my health, overall glow and wellbeing. This shows up in my business and personal life by giving me the energy and vitality to do what I do.

spa-holidays-banner

Here is why massages do wonders for your health;

  1. Lower Stress as a massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol while at the same time boosting serotonin which helps the body to manage anxiety, depression and pain.
  2. Boost your Immunity by increasing disease fighting white blood cells in your body.
  3. Better restorative Sleep to keep your body balanced is guaranteed when getting regular massages. This is especially important for those that suffer chronic pain.
  4. Stimulate Adrenal Glands as they can get overwhelmed when life gets busy due to hormonal imbalances and become fatigue. A good massage therapist can locate the areas on the body to stimulate the adrenal glands and return balance to the body.
  5. Improve your Mental Performance by helping you to focus better, making less mistakes with a sharper mind.
  6. Great Cardiovascular Health,  massages lower blood pressure and improve circulation as many studies prove.
  7. Detox naturally with a massage supporting your lymphatic system in releasing all toxins life exposes you too daily such as chemicals, food and pollutants that get stored in the body and slow us down.

No matter your choice of massage, Lymph Drainage, Deep Tissue, Reiki, Swiss, Swedish or Thai to name a few, all massages deliver similar results and yet each has a specific benefit as well. For example a Deep Tissue massage is therapeutic while a Swedish massage is great for your circulatory system and Reiki is based on energy and Lymph Drainage. So choose your massage based on the results you are looking for or have a therapist suggest and create a combination of techniques for your optimal benefits.
