So in my last post, I talked about how to live more intentional in 2017 by cutting down on the noise in our lives. Today I want to focus on getting fit by doing this:

Get Moving!

The new year's "I am going to get fit" resolution goal is in full swing for many people. I think it is a great goal to have but I also think we tend to get tired and bored just as fast. As health & wellness professionals you probably understand this behavior more than most people.

Time To Try Something New

I just discovered this event called Daybreaker and it looks like something I will definitely put on my list to do this year as a way to stay fit in a fun way. I love dancing in Zumba class and Daybreaker is all about hanging out with the fitness crowd and meeting up to dance. I know it sounds nuts but hey it looks like a lot of fun that will get your blood pumping. It's just one of the many new trends in the health & wellness space happening this year according to the blog Mind Body And Green. 

So what is your favorite workout activity to get you moving and energized towards keeping your fitness goals? Sharing is caring.

How To Live More Intentional in 2017

The first month of 2017 is in the record books.

 It went by pretty fast in my opinion. Have you thought about what you want to accomplish this year in your business & in your life? Over the next few weeks, I will introduce some ideas on how to live more intentional so that you can move forward toward your goals with clarity & focus. 

Idea #1

Turn Down The Noise

If you're anything like me you're constantly surrounded by noise from the t.v. or the phone or from the computer.

We are so connected to our technology that when we can't find our phones we go into panic mode. And yes I am sure just like me you probably sleep with your cell phone in your bed or near it. But according to an article in the Huffington Post, "We’re consuming about three times the amount of information today that we did in 1960".

That is bananas!

I now stop all things technology one hour before bedtime and read a book or listen to soundscapes until I fall asleep. Here are some ideas for finding relaxing sounds to get some zzz.

I also turn my phone on airplane mode so I can still use my alarm but not get awakened by text messages or notifications. 

Action Step: Take a step back from your life & see where you can cut out the noise of technology. Let me know about your ideas. 

 Sharing is caring.

How Are You Feeling Today?


Now that you have taken in a deep breath, I hope you are feeling healthy & whole today.

 I do understand that with so much noise in our world today that we can get bogged down. As an entrepreneur, we can especially run ourselves into the ground.

Take a minute for yourself and check out this post I did on 5 Unorthodox ways to avoid burnout syndrome for tips on how to get back on track.

What Are You Doing With Your Dash?

Today is the last day of your life.

That sounds pretty somber right? But what if it is. Are you living a life filled with integrity and in relentless pursuit of your dreams? I woke up this morning watching Joyce Meyer’s today and she was talking about this very thing:

We only get to do this once so:

What Are You Doing With Your Dash?

You only have right now. If you are not living the life you want then

Think Yourself Into Greatness!

Have you ever heard the phrase you are the sum total of the 5 people who you associate with on a daily basis? Well John Lee Dumas from  Entrepreneur On Fire podcast says something to this effect in each of his broadcasts. 

Is It True?

Well, look at where you are in your life right this minute. Are you on track to achieve your Big Hairy Audacious Goals your BHAGS? Are the people in your immediate circle encouraging or distracting you from your goals?

Only you know the answer. Stop where you are RIGHT NOW and make a pivot if you need to make some changes in your life. Some people are only along for part of our journey. It's ok to bid adieu to those people or things that aren't working toward our greatness. What things are you getting rid of in your life today? Tell me because I want to cheer you on.

Keep It Sunny!

Are You A Control Freak?

If you have been experiencing a lot of stress lately it could be that you are a control freak. We all like to be in control of various things in our lives at any point in time. But in reality do we really have ANY control? If you aren't sure you are a person that suffers from this ailment check out these 8 signs that you may be a control freak. If you are ready to let go then check out this article from Lewis Howes on how to do just that. 

Life is short. On your death bed are you really going to care if you didn't get something done EXACTLY your way? Probably not. What do you think about the idea of "letting go?"

Living La Vida Loca...Well not quite!

Being an entrepreneur is great. You get to set your own hours, work without limitations and serve your customers to the best of your ability. It really can feel like you're living the ultimate dream. But what if it doesn't and it feels like a nightmare because you are drained, stressed out and energy depleted? Then it is time to take some time for yourself and try some of these things that I do:

Wake up Early To Meditate

Do Yoga on a regular basis to stay balanced

Listen to podcasts or read motivational books

Take a midweek staycation to your nearest park

Do aerobics or go to the gym

Being a business owner is awesome and requires a lot of energy and enthusiasm. In the quest to be at the top of your game and take care of your clients/customers don't forget to take care of yourself. What are some of your ideas for self-care? Share with me in the comments below.
