Yoga Mat Maintenance Tips

I have a lot of my yoga clients ask me how often to wash your mat? How do you wash your mat? How do I keep my mat looking and feeling good! So Here are some tips to keep your mat looking and smelling divine!

# 1 it is a good idea to give your mat a spray down after your practice with a tea tree oil solution or an organic mat spray. You can also grab one of the handy dandy disinfectant wipes from the yoga room and give it a quick once over if you are borrowing one.

#2 […] Read more

Don’t Forget About The Long Slow Walk

It’s going to come as no surprise that I love the gym.  I like to exercise and get my daily workout (even one with burpees if I must).  The gym is great, but what about other exercise?  Surprisingly, I have grown to appreciate the long, slow walk as another form of exercise.  However, this one is more mental exercise.  Perhaps even something more.

I’ve read various estimates about how far our ancestors walked daily (between 4 and 10 miles), and I can’t help but wonder if all this walking is something that could be beneficial for us today.  To be clear, […] Read more

8 Steps to Success

I was listening to a great sermon by Pastor Mark Brewer Sunday morning and he was speaking about the 8 rules that the Navy Seals live by to get through not only buds but through combat training and battle.

#1 Happiness makes you successful and it makes you have purpose and meaning in all that you do. You notice that people with a purpose tend to be more successful then people who are just living life day to day with no real direction.

#2 Don’t Focus on the Struggle Focus on the End Result: Make your purpose stronger than any road block. When […] Read more

PM Rituals… Helping with Better Sleep 2.0

Continuing on our ritual kick we spring off last week’s topic, MORE MORNING RITUALS… HELPING WITH BETTER SLEEP, and talk about some evening rituals to help with better sleep habits.

I believe one of the biggest reasons why people don’t get enough sleep is at times it can be hard to literally go to sleep. We get frustrated because we need to rise early to start our ‘busy tomorrow’ and all we can think about is how we can’t stop thinking and need to relax and FINALLY go to sleep (speaking from personal experience)!

While we may not be able to literally […] Read more

Reasons Prohibiting Your Weight loss Goals

Do You think you eat really healthy, maintain a good exercise routine, but you still can’t seem to lose the pesky lbs?

Here are some important tips that could be the road blocks keeping you from your goal.

#1 Your Eating Foods That You Think Are Healthy and Are Not:

Two things I hear from my clients often are “I thought I was eating healthy” or I don’t really eat much. Both are inhibiting your ultimate success. There’s a saying you can’t outwork a diet. Nutrition is 80% of it.

Eat most of your starchy carbohydrates (like potatoes, quinoa, and sweet potatoes) on days […] Read more

Your Comfort Zone is Variable

I catch myself avoiding trying new stuff or pushing my boundaries.  My mind is happy to live inside my comfort zone, and I wonder why this is.  Usually, I think it has something to do with my mind’s self serving interest in keeping me alive.  There existed a time when getting outside the comfort zone meant real danger, and a likely chance for my untimely demise.  Though this threat is existent in today’s world, it is rarer in form than several hundred or thousand years ago.

What do I mean by comfort zone exactly.  Perhaps I should clarify.  Imagine a circle. […] Read more

Limit Excuse Gain Success

Get rid of limiting excuses that are road blocking you from your ultimate success.

Don’t let your excuses or intimidation get in the way of growing and achieving more in life than you can ever imagine.

You hear people around you all the time justifying why it is they are in the positions they are in. As creatures of habit we can tend to focus on retreat and all the things we are not doing and it becomes a crutch. We start to hobble instead of skip to our purpose and passions in life.

When we get stuck don’t let it keep you […] Read more

More Morning Rituals… Helping with Better Sleep

“I just want to get healthy.”
“I want to get back in-shape.”
“My goal is to lose some weight.”

I ask, “So what do you think you need to do?”

“Eat better.” “Start a workout routine.” “Workout more.”

I can’t remember the last time someone answering me with, “I need to sleep better.”

Sleep (believe it or not) is the first thing on your body’s agenda for optimal health and healthy bodyweight, but unfortunately last on most people’s daily agenda.

A good night’s sleep, every night, is critical for ALL aspects of your health. There is no part of your biology which can function optimally, even if […] Read more

What Are Your Expectations?

Ever listened to a podcast?  I’ve known about them for a while, but never thought to give them a try.  Then technology made it easier for me to do so by allowing the pairing of my phone with my car stereo.  That, coupled with the annoying amount of advertising played on local radio forced me to explore other auditory entertainment.  I tried podcasts, and have stumbled upon a few that are most entertaining.

One in particular is called Invisibilia.  This podcast’s aim is to

Explore the tangible forces that shape human behavior – things like ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions.

I’ve been enamored […] Read more
