The Antidote to the Killer of Motivation!

Has this ever happened to you? You feel excited about starting something new, perhaps a new food and exercise plan. You’re doing well with what you planned for yourself for several weeks-maybe even a couple of months-and then BOOM! It hits you! The “I don’t want to do that today/anymore/right now” syndrome. It happens to all of us at one time or another-or perhaps for some too many times… And, when it does, it doesn’t feel good. It provokes unhelpful thoughts and feelings of I’m a failure, I’m not good enough, why can’t I feel…

Motivation for the Unmotivated!

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily. Zig Ziglar Feeling unmotivated to exercise, get organized, eat healthier, de-clutter, plan for your next vacation or anything else?

Motivation & Summertime Mode-Can they go together?

So, today, I’m offering you some ways to get that R & R either for yourself or as a gift for the mothers in your life! Check out the package of audios I put together to…

Exercise & Happiness-What’s the Connection?

Having a bad day? Feeling down? One of the ways to increase your happiness level is to exercise-move your body! Moving our bodies releases those wonderful feel-good hormones called endorphins, as well as other mood-enhancing bio-chemicals—and they are all legal!? The effects of these mood enhancers can last up to 12 hours! That’s a lot of mood enhancement without putting artificial chemicals in your body! Exercise also works on reducing the levels of stress hormones that get produced when we’re stressed and anxious. So, not only are we getting a boost of mood enhancers, we’re…

Does Exercise Make You Happy?

If you have been following me for a while, you know I walked the Camino de Santiago from Porto, Portugal to Santiago, Spain last Fall (of 2021) with my husband and some friends. We covered at least 160 miles. That’s a lot of walking-but to be fair, it was done over 2 weeks with a few rest days in between. Nonetheless, we walked 8-10 miles a day. It was great!
