:: LIVING WITH PURPOSE IN 2019 ::
In the upcoming weeks, I’m going to offer you a series of five lessons with strategies, actions and mindset shifts to help you stay in the miracle of the new year called LIVING WITH PURPOSE.
“Purpose” is my word of the year and I’m not keeping it to myself!
These will be simple and significant actions, habits or thoughts you can adopt that will help you live your life with purpose and intention this year.
They’re practical and sustainable, they won’t take a lot of your time, and can make a big impact if you bring them into the fold of your life and keep doing them.
I know because I’ve personally tested them : ) and my clients have, too.
I first shared these lessons with my private group called WOMEN ON THE MOVE and they loved them so much that I felt I needed to roll them out for the masses.
They’re too good to be exclusive.
Here we go …
Welcome to the second of five weekly lessons in 2019 where I offer you my best teachings, guidance, tips and tricks that will not only get your year off to a strong start, but help you keep that momentum to reach your goals and improve the quality of your life in 2019.
How do I know this?
I know from personal experience because these things have improved or even transformed my life.
I also know because these are the practices I offer to my clients, and if they were consistent and committed when it came to doing them, then things that needed to change — changed.
Some of those changes I helped people make last year …
~ anywhere from 15 lb. to 60 lb. happy and healthy weight loss journeys
~ taking a leap of faith in a career and landing in an ideal job or starting a new business (sometimes after waiting months — or even decades to do it — it’s time to stop waiting, by the way)
~ becoming a person who works out and sees herself as an athlete after years yo-yo exercising and quick-fix diets
~ important decisions about relationships — whether they were friendships or marriages — maybe it was time to find a companion for life … maybe it was time to leave a relationship … maybe it was worth staying and working on it … whatever direction, people stopped sliding and started deciding
I could go on — I also have a special place in my heart for helping women cope with and heal when it comes to depression or anxiety. I know firsthand what that is like and that things can and will change — never give up.
LESSON #2: MOVING YOUR BODY ON PURPOSE
If you’ve been here for a while, you’re probably not surprised to see this coming from me : )
I’m deeply dedicated to spreading the good news about having a lifelong relationship that involves supporting your MIND and BODY by moving your body on purpose, more days than not.
As a therapist, life coach, group exercise instructor and personal trainer, I get the WHOLE picture — I’ve lived it and I study it constantly.
It delights and fascinates me that all of these movement miracles are housed within the very vessel that carries you through each day — you don’t have to go anywhere to find this. You already have all you need.
Again, I have evidence besides my opinion that supports my hype.
– greater sense of overall happiness
– more creativity
– better sleep
– it can offer you instant gratification AND long-term results
– “buffers” the brain to deal with life’s stressors
– connection with others
– key player in the treatment of depression
– re-routes the “fight or flight” response for those of us who deal with anxiety
– fends off memory loss and dementia
– it can be fun — I swear — and look for that until you find it; there’s no sense in hating your way into fitness
AND … I’ve even developed some ideas / plans for 10 minute workouts– you can do these in your living room without equipment.
At the end of the video, you’ll see me demonstrate modifications of exercises I shared with you in that PDF.
Also, my cat makes an appearance in the last few minutes.
Lol — although I didn’t think it was so funny at the time.
