Get your body back in the "Flow"

Get your body back in the "Flow"
Have you ever gone through a time in your life when you felt “in the flow?"
 
Wasn’t it GREAT?
 
You had a TON of energy, your sleep was on track, you felt productive, and you were positive and optimistic. Not to get woo-woo ... but you felt “in sync.”
 
Chances are, one big reason was that your body was running in its natural rhythm – basically, following your body clock. And it turns out there’s nothing woo-woo about it.
 
I have a quick and powerful tip to get back to that feeling if you’ve lost it.
 
But first, it’s important to remember that our bodies CRAVE routine. Especially healthy routines!
 
When you’re NOT following your body clock, you can feel fuzzy, unfocused, and tired. 
 
You can also feel hungry … even when you’re not. 
 
Over the long run, it can spell disaster for your health. It can affect:
 
  • Your heart health
  • Your metabolism
  • Your digestion
  • Your skin
  • Your body’s ability to repair DNA damage, and
  • So much more! 
PLUS … disruptions in your body clock (aka circadian rhythm) are linked with obesity, diabetes, and mental health issues.
 
This month, I’m going to focus on ways you can upgrade your daily & nightly routines to feel more “in the flow’ … and get those results you’re working so hard for!
 
And if you’re not working hard for them YET … it can help you finally find the energy to make them a reality.
 
I want to start with ONE TIP that can go a long way toward helping your body clock get into sync. 
 
Your body’s “clock” is actually located in your brain’s hypothalamus, right above where the nerves of your eyes cross. 
 
It’s made up of thousands of nerve cells that sync your body’s functions and sleep-wake cycle through hormones and other signals.
 
→ One MAJOR thing that affects it is LIGHT. (A clue we’re meant to sleep at night: we don’t have night vision like most nocturnal animals.)
 
Light and darkness trigger a LOT of different actions in your hypothalamus.
 
So … the tip is to GET SOME NATURAL LIGHT during the day! 
 
GO OUTSIDE. And even better, while you’re out there, go for a 20-30 minute walk … which is another way to help tune up your body clock.
 
And this is just the start … I’ve got great strategies coming your way soon on how to accelerate your results by tapping into the power of your own body. 
 
But for now ...
 
Make it an amazing (and light-filled) day :-). And if you haven't grabbed my latest eBook & Workbook, "Good Morning & Good Evening Rituals" grab it for free HERE!

Why “hustle & grind” doesn’t get you the results you want

Why “hustle & grind” doesn’t get you the results you want
Here’s something you might be surprised to know if your social media feed is anything like mine.
 
The “hustle and grind” is NOT the fastest path to your results. 
 
In fact, for some people, it’s a path to NOWHERE.
 
Especially if you have responsibilities … like a career, family, home, pets, etc.!
 
It’s true: the idea of “go hard or go home” might be exciting at first. 
 
But a few weeks later? Not so much.
 
This way of thinking can leave you feeling tired, sore, and worn out! All that stress can actually work AGAINST you.
 
There IS a better path.
 
  • Listening to your body’s cues
  • Making small, sustainable changes that add up to BIG results
  • Creating new healthy habits that actually support your lifestyle
  • Doing properly programmed workouts that help you reach your goals and GIVE you energy, not drain it
  • Eating the right combo of nutrient-dense foods that support your body’s needs AND goals (and doesn’t make you feel deprived)
  • Integrating lifestyle tweaks (sleep, stress management) that keep your hormones and body in balance. 
The best thing? It’s about building a healthy lifestyle that you can follow (and enjoy!) for years to come.
 
I can show you how I can help, just like we’ve helped hundreds of people to reach their wellness goals. 
 
My upcoming 28-Day Total Body Transformation Challenge is perfect if you've been wanting to make changes, but just don't know where to begin. You'll receive a step-by-step plan to create new habits that will stick. All done with my coaching and a supportive community of people just like you! We start September 13th. You can look up the details HERE or just reach out to chat. 
 
Looking forward to connecting,

P.S.
Here's what one participant said about the 28-Day Challenge, "I love this challenge. I learned 
that even if I don't stick to the plan 100% of the time I can still lose weight. I am proud to announce that I have lost a total of 10lbs during this challenge. I'm well on my way to my wellness goals." Randi R.

The Magic Formula for Success....

The Magic Formula for Success....
Are you ready for the secret to body transformation success? (This secret actually contributes to almost EVERY kind of success.)
 
It’s that the BASICS will get you (at least) 90% of the results you are looking for!
 
The quality & quantity of foods you eat … how much & what kind of movement you do every day … how much sleep you get …  how much stress you’re under.
 
They all add up to SUCCESS.
 
“The big secret in life is there is no secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” – Oprah Winfrey.
 
The best thing about all of this is this: every single one of the basics impacts the OTHER basics.
 
They work synergistically to not only help you FEEL BETTER, but also reach your goals.
 
This is what I’m talking about (just one example!):
 
  • When your nutrition is dialed in …
  • You have more energy to exercise, which helps
  • Boost your mood and relieve stress, which makes it easier to 
  • Get a good night of sleep, which helps
  • Balance important hormones that help you stay feeling full & satisfied, which
  • Makes it easier to keep your nutrition on-track.
  • And around it goes!

Do you have morning rituals? Here are four of mine...

Did you know that we are actually in charge of our attitude every day? Some days when I'm in a funk, or grumpy, I remind myself that I have the power to shift my energy and attitude at any time. I just have to decide. One great way to do this is beginning your day with rituals. Things you do every morning that help set the stage for an incredible, happy day! Here are a few ideas.

1. Gratitude: Before you get out of bed think of 10 things you are grateful for. It could be that you have a warm cozy bed to sleep in. It could be your fur baby that's snuggled beside you. Or if you are really tired and can't think of much because you really don't want to get out of that warm bed, be grateful you have feet that will hit the floor, eyes that you can open, and the roof over your head. Sounds simple, but can really be profound.

2. Eat a healthy breakfast: Filling your body with clean nutrients will power you through your morning. Mentally, it feels awesome to know that you are making a decision to fuel your body with the power it deserves.

3. Personal Development/Meditation: I notice a huge difference in my attitude when I make the time to read or meditate. If you aren't a reader, there are great books on audible. I love listening to books while I'm driving around. Podcasts are another great option. One of my favorite ones is "The Quote of the Day." Most are about 10 minutes, and the speakers are always inspiring and give a great message!

4. Practice visualization: Personally, it helps set the tone for my day. The visualization piece is huge for me because it reminds me of my "why," and motivates me to kick ass because I'm on a mission! You can even break it down and visualize how you want your day to go. Have an important meeting? Visualize the way you want it to go! Seriously, this works. A great book to help you learn the art of visualization is, Mach II with your Hair on Fire by Richard Brooke.
Yours in health,
Colleen
