    Health is a reflection of the relationship you have with your body.  ~Terri Guillemets

    If your body could talk, what would it say to you? "Thank you for feeding me healthy foods and exercising me. I feel great. I look great. Oh, and thank you for  the importance you place on getting plenty of sleep so I can rejuvenate myself. I've shown my appreciation by removing those bags under our eyes."

    While it may not use the same 26 letters you and I do, your body does in fact communicate with you on a daily basis. Let me ask you,  continue »

    "It's the same thing for me every year. I make up my mind in December about changes I want to make in the upcoming year (usually involving getting in shape) but a few months into the year (or sooner), I'm right back into my old habits. I really want to be successful this year. Why can't I ever seem to make my resolutions last?"

    Why? Because that's your story and you're sticking to it.

    Look at what you wrote to me. The answer is right there. It's all good though, because fixing it is easy. I'll explain in a minute.

    A little background first. continue »

    "I'm not happy with myself, but I don't know what to do about it.  I constantly put stuff off and then feel like crap about it. I have trouble sticking with anything – even focusing. The truth is, it seems without even wanting to, I start arguments. I say stuff that I later wish I hadn't. Bottom line, I feel like a bitch. I don't even like me. What's wrong with me? How do I become a better person?"

    Well, my friend, you just continue »

    "This sucks. I'm a good person. I don't deserve this. Why me?"

    Yes, I'm sure it does and I'm sure you are.

    Maybe it's not a question of deserving or not. Maybe "Why me?" isn't the question to be asking. Maybe better questions are "What is this telling me?" and "What's the best possible way I can respond to this?"

    We can't have that now, can we? How can you be a happy bitch without your beauty sleep? Let's get our snooze on.

    First, let's address the problem. Why is it so difficult for this woman to sleep well? For that matter, why do millions of people have difficulty sleeping? Helping people catch more Z's is a multi-million dollar industry. Perhaps even billions. Between the latest and greatest pillow-top mattress adorned with 350 thread count sheets to over-the-counter and prescription sleep aids, a whole lot of people are making piles of money on our inability to sleep.

    Do we need to spend more money or  continue »

    I realize this title isn't the most uplifting of posts I've had. It was not my intention this week to write about this. However when I logged in the other day and realized that someone, a wife, mother, daughter, teenager, father, I have no idea who, typed these exact words into his or her browser and landed on my blog, posting about it became my most immediate priority.

    Somewhere out there is a precious human life contemplating whether or not he or she has a reason to continue living. I have no way to reach this person directly, other than to post this and hope he or she comes back and reads this. So to my unknown visitor, this is for you. Even if it wasn't you, please read this.

    I want to address this first from continue »

    Well if that ain't the question on the minds of about 98% of adult women, I don't know what is. This is going to be interesting. What I’m about to tell you isn’t what you’re used to hearing.
     
    Let's start with the question "Why can't I lose weight?".  Part of the problem lies within the question itself. You see the language we use is a reflection of the way we think. The question reflects ineffective thinking.
     
    How so? By asking this, you are looking for reasons you've been unable to succeed. Trust me. You will get them. Without realizing it, you’re continue »
