I love my skin and am committed to its well being. Like our body, our skin is trillions of cells. Each of them is coded to defend us by making survival genes. Genes that fight off all the bad guys that harm and age us.
I love mother nature! But like any machine, our cells break down too and aren’t able to fight the way they did when we were young…… Until Nrf2 Activation showed up. Plant nutrients proven to activate the control and command center instructing the cell to make these survival genes as powerfully as they did when you were young. It is an activator of cell intelligence replacing the old science of supplementation, taking something because our body isn’t making it.
So let’s learn 9 surprising facts you may not have known about your skin….
Focus is everything yet we live in a world that is constantly fighting to grab our attention, it is almost impossible to stay focused on the things that truly drive our life forward. The older I get the harder it is to stay focused, which is why I have found 5 hacks to slay my day and keep my focus and calm.
1. Set up your day the night before.
If I don't start here, my day starts running off the tracks before I even get up. Our phones grab us, family, friends, co-workers, or computers start pulling for our attention. As the saying goes, if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail. This doesn’t just apply to big life goals. Every single day needs a plan – and that plan should happen the night before the day actually starts. Carve out 10-15 minutes of your evening in undistracted solitude. Take a look at your calendar, master task list, and determine the top 2-3 things you want to accomplish the following day. I tend to fill my calendar with 20 items and...
2020 was met with great anticipation. The start of a decade with promises of a brighter future. All our hopes and dreams moving with us into the new year.
That is until right before our eyes, everything changed.
All that we thought and believed was possible shifted in a second to nothing we could have imagined or planned. Whether it was Covid attacking our health or shelter in place changing how we live. Stuck in isolation and waiting for something to change. For the world to get better or even back to normal. The fact is, there is no normal. It is time to create a different, better world.
The unknown can frighten and overwhelm us or inspire us. We all have good days and bad. Dreams and hopes fulfilled along with heartache and losses. Pain and sorrow in one moment turning to joy and gratitude in another. It is the roller coaster of life that we all get to ride. No one is special or excluded from the pain.
But each of us chooses how we move through it. Stuck in fear with the...
“Oxidation” is the chemical term that describes removing electrons from an atom. Your cells are made of molecules that contain electrons, and these electrons can be “stolen” by an unstable atom that needs another electron to be stable. When this happens in your body, it can lead to tissue damage. Think about an apple that you cut and leave out. It turns brown, starts to shrivel and wrinkle, and gets mushy. That’s oxidation. Another example is rust—that’s metal oxidizing, getting holes and becoming weak and discolored.
Our body is really busy. Digesting food, breathing in and out, using our muscles, even thinking, are all hard work. This work can generate byproducts—like free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that start oxidation—they need an electron from another molecule to become stable. You need some free radicals to stimulate important physiological processes, such as helping the immune system function correctly...
This morning as I was writing in my journal
I stopped for a moment and found my inspiration
My sight landed on our children's first violin
Where their music life began
My heart is still full with music that filled our home
Long hours of practice, even when they didn’t want to
Whether it was the violin where they began
Or drums, cello, electric guitar, keyboard or piano
Music still fills our home
It all began with a commitment to practice
Practice is the skill required to be good at anything in life
Where have you practiced and developed your talents?
Where has it led you in life
My daily practice is stillness
It guides me into the quiet corners of life
Allows me to observe the influences of my mind
The beat of my heart that ignites passion
The moments I breathe life into my years.
Being my own life architect and helping others be theirs
Is a commitment to being intentional
Choosing where your life is headed
Why it is important
So you can live the exceptional life that is you
It is why you were...
What is your passion?
What drives the path of your life
When you hop in the vehicle of your body every day
Where is your IGS taking you
Your IGS is your Internal Guidance System
Do you have a goal and vision for your life
Do you believe how seeing a future you love
Will drive you towards that destination faster
But the fact is, we plug a destination into our GPS
Before we drive towards the location we desire
But don’t think about our life
And determining the destination where we want our life to go
As a life architect
I help people see a road to build a different future
Create an impact with income
Make a plan and mentor them to hop into their body
And drive towards the vision that motivates them
Fast or slow, you choose
One that is simple, affordable and only risky
If you stop and give up on you
Which sadly people do
Which is why I am grateful
Grateful for mentors who believed in me
Until I saw the results and believed on my own
I pour their gift of love, guidance and belief
Every day into...
What is aging?
What is your relationship to it?
Are you passionate about your life?
Do you take care of your body?
If you could live longer would you want to?
Not in the old broken down body that ages
But in a body that is repairing itself
Because you got it to work again
Powerfully protecting you again
The way it did when you were young
This is why I do what I do
I help people understand aging
And why it isn’t inevitable to let life damage your health
Science that proves the power of your internal defenses
To repair, restore, regenerate wellness
It is your healthspan we are talking about
The healthy, happy, grace filled moments
In life that make you happy
How do you honor the miracle of you
Do you thank your body for all the ways
It heals you in every second
Your eyes so you can see
Your heart so you can feel
Your voice so you can speak
Your health so you can be happy
Your muscles so you can run
Your brain so you can think
Trillions of cells conspiring every second on your behalf
The miracle of you...
Are you ready?
Wake up today with a plan to live life anew
Choose to be 10% happier, healthier, more loving and peaceful
It will not happen without a plan
Knowing what you will do differently today
So your life will be different tomorrow
I love to help people be their own life architect
ReThink Living by imagining what your life could look like
Sit still and dream again
So let’s get started
Life is like a puzzle. You wake up in the morning, open the box, and there are all of these pieces you have to put together. Getting started can be overwhelming, exhausting and stressful. Sometimes we just want to crawl back into bed and put the covers over our head. Crawl under a rock and hide. And sometimes we do.
But if you take a moment and a deep deep breath (my favorite way to calm the stresses), you begin to see the pieces come together….. The picture of where you are going. You start with the outside first, the finished picture, which is the vision of where you want to go. Vision builds belief and belief creates action.
Action is essential to get anywhere.
You are the engine to your dreams. Having a plan and the skills required is the first step. The skills help you know where to begin and how to get where you are going. Fill in the outside borders first . Build the structure and the steps that will get you to where you want to be.
Now what if you had a mentor…....
Usually when we think of habits, we are focused on creating new habits. New behaviors that will make our life better. “I am going to sleep more, work out more, eat better, be happier more….”
The list goes on and we are left with more pressure to do. As if our To Do list wasn’t big enough already!
I believe we need to start on the inside. Figure out what sabotages our success and keeps us spinning on the hamster wheel of scattered and unfulfilled. Why can’t we get our chores done simply as we did when we were young
I believe it is the stories we tell ourselves before we even get started. The stories that steal our confidence, courage, belief and sense of value. I have a whole closet full of self sabotaging stories…. Actually a whole housefull.
So here are my 4 Habits To Break
