Who needs extra energy?! It seems to be the daily struggle that so many Americans have. If you read your Facebook Feed or watch Instagram stories, more and more people are talking about feeling sluggish and needing a pick me up or a boost.
Over the last five to ten years, self-care has become a buzz word. I am sure you hear about it almost daily! Originally, it meant taking care of one’s own mental health. These days it can mean a multitude of different things.
When I was coaching a team member yesterday, we had a deep discussion on success which turned into a discussion on mind set.
He had been on a call I did recently where I talked about “what you think about, you bring about.” Well, he realized that he was thinking about all the things that were not happening to move him towards his goals and dreams. He was not thinking about what he wanted to happen in his future. He asked me how to change this.
There are some days that the day gets away from you or you have too much on the plate. Does that ever happen to you? At least, that can be my life! Too many scheduled items or maybe a few unexpected phone calls, can change my day quickly.
A family favorite, these delicious bite sized morsels are great energy snacks, desserts and even a health breakfast grab and go! There are numerous variations on the add-in items but my favorites are the Cacao Nibs and shredded Coconut. Yum!
Are you looking for a fun side dish that also uses up all the extra squash lingering around since the final fall farmer’s markets? Well, look no further. This simple, tasty dish adds to the dining appeal!
When we don’t feel like moving forward, it is simply because we don’t have enough reasons to help stimulate our motivation. If only someone could just turn on the switch to power-up the sense of urgency… how different would life be?
To begin living with a sense of urgency, it’s important to understand how it originates and manifests in people’s lives. Well, there are actually two ways a sense of urgency can be created. One way is forced upon you by external events, people, and circumstances, and the other way is created from within.
“Last night, I ran into a friend who works as a clerk on the graveyard shift. He attended a program I did on the power of thought not long ago. He mentioned that he was trying to create a vision for the future–but all he could see was cracked mirrors. He asked me what I thought would cause that.
I replied that the likely causes were watching too much TV (he nodded), reading the daily newspaper instead of positive books (he nodded), hanging around with negative people (now he’s nodding furiously), or all three. ‘Busted,’ he says.
