Good Health is More Than Fitness and Nutrition

Health Health and Fitness Coach Wellness

Every day I continue to learn that good health is more than fitness and nutrition! Emotional fitness is an important piece in the 7 dimensions of wellness.

Emotional health affects our physical body greatly by changing cell structure and creating hormonal imbalances, not to mention how it wreaks havoc on our mind!

Emotional health is the ability to resolve even the most difficult challenges of your life. It requires us to let go of the toxic emotions of fear, anger, resentment, guilt, and shame. These are deadly emotions that cause all kinds of pain and disease. Continue reading

Are the People in Your Life Contributing to Your Sense of Well-Being or Detracting From it?

Health Life’s A Stretch – Blog Wellness

There was a time in my life when I wanted to continue to develop and grow, and those around me didn’t share the same desires. The simple truth was I had to go off and find new people who were growing and evolving like me.

Other times we may have to work side by side with a negative co-worker, or to learn the best ways to communicate with our children. Continue reading

Good Health is More Than Physical Fitness and Nutrition

Body Life’s A Stretch – Blog Mind Spirit

As I look back on the past 6 months mourning for a loved one, I clearly see that good health is more than physical fitness and nutrition. While they are the building blocks, it doesn’t stop there! Living through the grieving period has brought me to a larger vision of good health.

I’ve identified 7 dimensions of well-being from the university of California Riverside, a public research university.7 dimensions to well-being

Each of the 7 dimensions contributes to our overall sense of well-being.

Making Peace With My Past – The Best Holiday Gift

Intuition Life’s A Stretch – Blog

Looking back I remember a period between Christmas and New Years when everyone around me was celebrating and in the holiday spirit. I was not. I was approaching my 10th year in silent misery secretly asking life to bring me peace about my past. I was in a life by default that was clearly not working, and impacted by a history that needed healing and closure.

holiday heal the pastAs I sat in my car reflecting on my life, something prompted me to take a drive to the house I grew up in. I parked my car in front of the house wanting to knock on the door and go inside. I took a deep breath, walked to the front door, and rang the bell. Not knowing where this was going, a Rabbi’s wife answered the door. I broke down and asked her Continue reading

Resolving Inner Conflict

Body Life’s A Stretch – Blog Mind

Resolving inner conflict is a behavior pattern I’ve grappled with for as far back as I can remember. What I have learned over time is to identify and remove the triggers that control us and cause discomfort in our mind and bodies. It often feels easier to resolving inner conflictdistract ourselves from having to look at various situations in our lives. We have a drink or go shopping, but that doesn’t mean the emotions held inside are gone! Pushing away annoying thoughts only make them appear more intense when they arise. It’s the resistance to the flow of energy that causes the pain and tension we often feel.

Emotions are energy and Continue reading

Rediscovering Me

Body Mind Spirit

This summer I took a trip to Sanibel Island myself. With my suitcase and books on tape in hand, I recognized that for the first time in a long time I was feeling the effects of the great divide. The divide between my mind and my body. The divide between being there for others and being there for myself. Feeling depleted and sucked dry I asked myself “What about me?“ In that moment I knew that I had to disengage and let everyone around me stand on their own. Wayne Dyer says “Anything that divides us weakens us.”

When I returned friends asked “How was your vacation?”. I took a moment before sharing the truth. Continue reading

Here’s a New Twist to Yoga!

Body Breathing Techniques Breathwork Mind Yoga

I decided a long time ago that it was not okay for anyone else to struggle with anxiety and nervous tension as I did most of my life. On the outside, I looked like I had everything under control but inside I was struggling to keep it together. My mind was always jumping around from the kids, to my job, to my marriage and so on producing everything from aches and pains, to mood disorders. Continue reading

Press Pause and Breathe!

Breathing Techniques Breathwork Yoga

Throughout the years, I’ve allowed my fitness practice to evolve as I continue to grow. Yoga has taught me how to explore my life as well as my body. I see Yoga as a tool for self-regulation, self- exploration, and self-awareness. It allows us to get in touch with our unexpressed emotions and can release them through our body!

Without breathing we wouldn’t be alive but ironically most people don’t pay attention to how they breathe until they have trouble breathing! The breath connects the mind and the body so by developing your ability to pay attention to your breath, by being aware of your breathing, something way beyond the physical happens!yoga class delray beach Continue reading
