The year of Lifestyle Medicine

The year of Lifestyle Medicine

This year has proven to be a year of great change,especially for the medical community. The underlying issues faced with health are more than sickness, they are dis-ease, where the body mind and emotions are not at ease. 

Now more than ever a light is shining to make new conscious choices, habits and actions for your health. This requires a clearing out and cleaning of negativity, toxicity and past limiting programming. From food, movement, entertainment and news your lifestyle patterns dictate your behaviors and outcomes. For this to change, you need to change your patterns and behaviors. 

Lifestyle Medicine looks at all of you, your habits, patterns and behaviors. It’s here you can be given a new formula and plan for your health.

Lifestyle Medicine chooses vitamins, minerals, herbs, mindfulness, empathy and the present moment to prescribe health for you.  Health after all is a series of positive choices, habits, actions and non-negotiables.

When you recognize what you are putting into your body, mind and in your environment are not improving your quality of life, you make a decision, a choice.

A decision. 

Lifestyle Medicine is all about empowering people.  When people are empowered you make choices and decisions that are for your good. You take your health and well-being into your own destiny.

Resilience is a by product of Lifestyle Medicine.  When you have the right systems, structures and plan in place you will navigate health with more confidence, greater clarity and more innate wisdom.

Growth is a natural state of life and living supported by the foundation in Lifestyle Medicine. Growth is powerful in increase, expansion and new.  It may begin messy and unknown,  yet once grounded with consistency, growth brings more to life and living.  Lifestyle Medicine maximizes people’s living and life.

How I built my foundation of success doing the opposite.

How I built my foundation of success doing the opposite.

They thought I was crazy.

“Who would need or want what you have to offer”,  they said.

I was determined in my ethics, clear in my feelings and actions. I knew without a shadow of a doubt my head and heart were aligned, in integrity, stable in thought and feeling.

“Why would you do that”, they interrogated. Repeatedly

I spent hours at the gym training.  I had a plan in place that gave me time every morning to focus on my health and set up my day.  Before my work began, training clients, and teaching classes. And my foods; clean, purposeful and energizing.  

After all they were Dr’s, lawyers and business professionals, their version of success held more relevance to happiness, health and success than mine could. 

There was no proof to my ideologies. 

Who was I to prove them wrong?

I decided the idea of setting up challenges which would give me opportunity to test my skills, nourish my strengths and have me show up everyday was a greater fire starter in me than following the ideologies presented to me.

Yes, I was willing to take it on, challenge their version of succes, health and living.

I focused, set my path and stayed the course.  I build a foundation for lifestyle which includes health, success and growth. It includes financial and spiritual wealth, mental and emotional health and habits which are grounded and practical for success.

My KPI’s have been resilience, excellence, detail, and brain training actions

In order to excel and exceed one must be willing to go beyond the current standards and norms. 

I had just decided I didn’t want to fit into their version of success. 

Success to those of you who desire more from living and your lifestyle want your health, fitness and wellness goals to be at the forefront of your living.  You understand Optimal Performance is the foundation for success.

This busts through the myth that success comes from having a specific career.

A career is a choice.  Growth, Personal Development, and Innovation are optional.

Your Endocrine System- The Hypothalamus: CEO of your Body

Your endocrine system is made up of glands found throughout the body. These glands, which produce hormones, send hormones into the bloodstream or into the fluid around cells, and receptors to be distributed among organs and tissues, and “programmed” to respond to the hormones. Essentially

The Future of Wellness

The Future of Wellness

Learning to implement and apply good habits in every area of your life can be challenging especially with so many time commitments. It takes discipline, focus and a plan that works for you.

Overcoming disruptive eating patterns, excuses for why you’re not working out, finding ways to spend time with the one’s you love and disconnecting from work and social devices giving them your full attention are all shifts in wellness.

These behaviors and patterns most likely were not modeled for you or deemed as important. Today they are absolutely necessary. The solution and answers lie within your planning and preparation. Taking the time today to support your overall well being.

I named this post the future of wellness. Former generations didn’t place much effort or emphasize on their health and well being. Work, providing for their families took a top priority and that was how many spent their time and energy. Now, with so many options for support, knowledge and information for wellness and how it impacts every area of your life, making it the center of your overall living brings order and structure into your daily habits and routines.

Taking full responsibility for your wellness brings you the opportunity to set the course of your future with how you spend your time. Having optimal health from clean nutrition, exercise and mindfulness today brings you energy, vitality and less stress. This leads to good decision making, ability to know where your priorities are and act without hesitation. You can separate work from family time without pressure, guilt or a need to get things done. You find freedom in taking time for yourself, knowing you know what you need to regain your confidence, keep yourself sharp and center yourself in all situations.

Does this resonate with you?
