Healthy Body Healthy Mind for 2015

Running_Healthy_Man_Woman3_7937

As the new year approaches, many of us set new goals for ourselves to accomplish.  We aim to eat more healthy.  We put together a new exercise routine to implement for a physically stronger and better self.

Often times we forget about our minds and how they are truly connected to our bodies.  Many think of the two as separate systems and that they function independently.  Science, however, has proven that they are not two but one and every part of the body is the mind expressing itself through that part.  When something goes wrong it is usually a combination of physical and emotional causes.  There is strong belief in the statement ” As you think so you become”.

We truly are in charge of our attitudes and feelings but we cannot determine the outcome of every circumstance in life.  WE DON’T CREATE OUR OWN REALITY BUT WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO OUR REALITY.  Like a ship on the ocean, we can’t direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.  It is extremely important to guard our thoughts and the things that we allow to enter into our minds on a regular basis.  It is equally important to make available “quiet time” to feel what your body is feeling in order to awaken our intuition.  Partake of positive and healthy nutrition for our minds just as we do our bodies and counteract negative stresses in the form of mindful activities as we do with physical exercise for our bodies.

Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!   Don’t forget to submit your story and why you feel you would enjoy experiencing a complimentary coaching course with Eden Myers at edenmyers1@gmail.com.  As a certified coach and wellness advocate, she strongly believes in paying it forward and is anxious to share the benefits of this course with you!

Be a Diligent Guardian of Your Body

Most people would feel bad about destroying the property of another person. Yet they are not kind to the very property that they have been gifted………….their body! Guarding our body, mind and soul is very important. If it is not a daily practice now, we must protect our health first of all by paying attention to what we put into our mouths. Eat smaller portions. A plate full of greens and whole foods with a diet omitting ingredients that we cannot pronounce is an excellent way to care for this temple we were given.

Along with a proper diet and a practice of good habits, we must also protect ourselves from negative information and people. We often fail in this endeavor as we let useless information and stupidity into our minds. By watching television and listening to the media, we allow the trite and negative to enter our minds ever so slowly. From all of this we do not grow wiser but instead we become less informed, and poorer. Feed your brain with positive and empowering information.

Take a look at the people we let into our lives. Are we allowing in those who are negative, those who poison our potential? Are we always allowing ourselves to be hurt? If so, these people must go! Don’t think they will go on there own for they will stay around as long as we allow it. At the same time, it is uniquely important to surround ourselves with people who are positive, inspiring and possess a kind spirit. Invite them into your home, into your circle of friends and into your life.

It is up to us to be fierce guardians of our happiness and our humanity.

Eden Myers, certified Life Coach of the Proctor Gallagher Institute encourages one and all to be especially diligent during the holiday season when energy can run low, patience can run ragged and stress runs high. Go with the flow, live in the now and share the love in your heart! edenmyers1@gmail.com

The Wonder of Being Human

people_together

The wonder of being human is that we have the ability to change ourselves. First we must realize this power that we have and then harness it. When we begin to make changes the reactions we get from others may surprise us. The desire to make changes is there but our internal beliefs may not be strong. Many family members and piers will have the same beliefs.
They may try to pull you back to your old way of thinking – to their way of thinking. They may be convinced that they are helping you. You must move forward in the direction of the growth you desire otherwise you will live in limbo and continue to long for a better life – the life that you desire to live.

Three things can hold us back. Regret, indecision and fear. I remember the saying, ” Sorrow looks back, worry looks around but faith looks up!”

Regret can haunt our thoughts. What if I did this……..I probably would have got that promotion. I should have saved more money. If I hadn’t given in, I would not have made that mistake or if I would have finished school I would be farther ahead in life. Get clear of these thoughts and let go!

When we are indecisive, we will encounter circumstances that are positive but we interpret them as negative. Focused intentions are important. Focus on solutions to a problem and write them down. Ask others for ideas and options that can help. It’s better than sitting around and worrying. Force yourself forward!

Fear is the power of what if. Thinking right away of the worst that could happen, we talk ourselves out of ideas and solutions. Don’t focus on the problem. Focus on the opportunity.

Have a good plan. Focus on it relentlessly and look to the future for resolutions!

Are you feeling stuck in areas of life such as relationships, career, lifestyle or health? You are in the right place. You can write the pages of your life to create the life you have always wanted.
