Powerful and Easy Ways to Transform Unhealthy Core Beliefs

Lost in Thought; How to Focus a Busy Mind

How many times have you gotten “lost in thought”? Your mind is thinking one thought after another and you’re not present to what’s happening in the moment.

Mindfulness, A Better Way to Weight Loss

The definition of Mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment with a sense of curiosity, open heartedness, interest, and nonjudgement.

Health and Food

When driving in unknown territory and using our GPS, we trust it’ll provide information to get us to where we want to go. If the GPS gives us the wrong information, we will end up at a location where we don’t want to be. Similarly, the food we eat provides our bodies with directions and materials for proper cellular functioning. The wrong food choices could send us down the wrong road with respect to our physical and mental health and aging.

Powerful Ways to Unlock Insight and Awareness

You’re in line checking out at the grocery store, and you hear the ladies in front of you talking about a mindfulness class they just attended. They mention how they feel like they shifted into a happier more productive place. You may begin to wonder, “What exactly is mindfulness?”

Mindfulness, at its core, is about focusing one’s attention in a deliberate way inwardly. It’s about learning who we are and our place in today’s world. It’s all about awareness and staying present in the moment curiously and nonjudgmentally. It gives us the ability to live our lives with a sense of clarity of purpose and presence, thus creating a life of greater satisfaction, balance, and well-being.

What if weight loss wasn’t about food?

How many times have you been watching a movie or television show and been so preoccupied, that you look down and you’re at the bottom of the chip bag or the pint of ice cream? It happens in the blink of an eye, but how does that happen?

When our eating becomes largely automatic and mindless, we are eating from a place of emotional or distracted habits. These habits can lull us into making mindless food choices and overeating.

2018 – The Year You Become Your Own Heroine

The Dalai Lama tells us, “The point of life is happiness”. Make 2018 the year of empowerment and happiness for yourself. The year where you make a commitment to improve your life, by taking back your power. It’s time to begin to live the life you were meant to love. When we talk about power, we aren’t talking about a force to get your way; nor are we talking about money, status, possessions or force. Personal power is based in your confidence, strength and feelings of competence. When one has personal power they strive for satisfaction and meaning in their life, self-assertion and a desire for healthy, loving relationships. In 2017 you may have faced many challenges, and dark times. You may have found yourself asking, “How did I get here”? Let 2018 be the year you empower yourself to live the life you have always dreamed of; the life you were meant to love.

Detox and Heal Your Mind Through Meditation

Knowing that the mind and body are interconnected we can begin to learn and understand how to heal mentally and physically through meditation. We are always under the influence of our emotions and thoughts, and when we begin to still the mind we can begin to heal. It is through the stillness of the mind where we can find peace and healing energy.

HELP! I Want to Meditate, But I Don’t Have Any Time

Yesterday I got a call from a client who told me, “Help! I want to meditate, but I don’t have time”. With our busy lives filled with things to do from the moment we open our eyes to the moment we close them, it’s hard to figure out when to have time to meditate.

But what if I told you there was a way to strengthen your mind, and have the ability to skillfully know where to focus your attention, while losing your preoccupation with negative thoughts and living in autopilot mode?In our exercise-obsessed world, we work on our bodies without ever giving a thought to exercising our mind.

Shinrin-Yoku – Forest Bathing

Mindfulness comes to us in many forms, and having the opportunity to combine it with shinrin-yoku is one of the most luxurious things you can do for yourself. Shinrin-Yoku is the ancient art of forest bathing. It’s not just “a walk in the park”, it’s a sensory perception experience focused on seeing, hearing and smelling. The participant deliberately immerses himself or herself with nature. In Japanese medicine shinrin-yoku plays an important part in preventative medicine and healing.

Kim S., Business & Marketing Automation Mentor

I didn’t realize how much I was mindlessly eating until Joanne opened my eyes.The past eight weeks have been life-changing! I lost 10 pounds easily because, unlike before, I am mindful about almost every bite I take, and I have stopped feeling guilty about the food I eat. I now not only savor my food but I’m more aware of how I live my life in general. I would definitely recommend this course for others.

Thank you, Joanne!
