“The Purpose and Contribuiton Conundrum”

Some years ago, I didn’t even want to talk about having a purpose let alone transcending in any way. As time went by, I discovered that there are no greater drivers at any age than growth, purpose and contribution. When I faced depression for having lost my main income, most of my work and got a divorce (both huge breakthroughs from toxicity, but still a loss) and then my 5 day old cat died in front of me of feline panleukopemia – even if she was already a rag when I got her to the vet. I had to regroup and rebuild myself brick to brick in the awareness to evolve from said toxicity and build a stronger, happier,more fulfilling life.

Shortly after, I met a man that changed my life – he said the magic words… Discover a life by serving another, that will give purpose and meaning to yours.

Ah! then my focus started on looking for ways in which I could change the world doing exactly what I loved. My search got me to several different answers – teaching people how to eat better building and focusing on a purpose greater than I am got me up every day. I was already a learning and kind of a wellness/ fitness junkie at that point.

Soon, I discovered that three things were key to one’s life – Growth, Purpose and Contribution.

Having a purpose means giving meaning to your life, having a reason to get up.

Making said purpose about contribution gives it the pull of making it about something greater than yourself.

As in anything in life, I’d recommend you start small.

You can start with a gesture, a good tip. Really seeing and acknowledging those who cater to you in any way a waiter, the valet, bus driver, etc..

Give away a smile, giving away your time and experience to help others.

Start a charity, volunteer or give away your time and talent to help others.

Live a life with purpose and get up with a smile on your face!

Extinguish Burnout by Doing these Three Things!!!

  1. Breathe – You’re perhaps thinking, I do that every day. And I’m sure you do! The trick is doing it in a mindful way. And here’s my favorite way to do so. It will work if you’re a beginner or an advanced yoga or meditative practitioner. Aternate Nostril Breathing  –  Close your right nostril with your right thumb inhale   27 in left, deeply through your left nostril. Close your left nostril with your right ring finger exhale 27 out right, inhale from that very same nostril – 26 in right, cover it and then exhale from your left nostril – 26 out left, inhlae from that nostril -25 in left … keep on repeating the procedure and count down from 27 down. I typically get to 16 and feel a lot more calm.
  2. Move – may it be 2 minutes, 5 or 10, but move! A great tip is to dance in your place, walk, still running, etc… If you’re at your office, get a standing desk or (if you get the chance) wak while on the phone. Should that not be an option, walk 10-20 minutes after lunch at a brisk pace, the movement and oxygen will clear and calm your mind.
  3. Avoid simple carbs (sugars and white pastas),processed and pre-packaged foods (sweet rols, breads, chips and sodas …) and alchohol. All these will spike the sugar levels in your blood.,your body produes more cortisol and your body, then, stresses from within too!

And remember, “The cyclone derives its powers from a calm center, so does a person.” Norman Vincent Peale.

 

Happy Friday!

One Word, and You Can See the World!!

On our One.By.One series, today it’s the Power of Words day. So as the tecnhique would call… work with ONE word and today we will work with NO.

No is a monosyllabus said in a flat tone, without shouting or violence, with no explanations or excuses. Use NO to set clear boundaries, say NO to toxic foods, people and emotions. No is a word that allows for balance and gowth, it allows you to soar to your possibilities and manage your time wisely.

One Ingredient at at a Time!

Hello!

Welcome back! On this one to series… We invite you to try this, substitute one ingredient at a time!

If you’re familiar or have been following my FB group Unshakeable Balance, you already know that I’ve been sharing common recipes, and substituting the high-carb ingredient for a low-carb one. Again, One Ingredient at a time! Our program is to help you heal, eat better, live a more balanced life and MOVE! Our One By One technique is the slow but steady road to dieting… As we practice what we preach, we know that substituting every single ingredient in your meals will make the dish taste completely different. So, instead of accidentally turning your favorite spaghetti and meatballs into zoodles with tofu, replace one ingredient only.

For example, you can start by using whole grain pasta; or if you have a spiralizer, you could try zoodles instead leave the meatballs and sauce as they are. As you know, we’re into eating real foods, and building a sustainable diet, and a sustainable planet while at it, so we suggest you try making your own fresh tomato sauce rather than using a canned variety, very likely to be packed with preservatives.

One Push-up Is All It Takes…

Hey!

I’ve been preparing and modifying my page to make it about you!

You might be wondering… is THIS even true? And the answer is Yes, and No… First let me clear that no… NO, a singlel push-up, plank or any other exercise will not make you fit. Unless, unless that is what you start with first thing in the morning and stack up on it. The principle behind this idea is that to change your life and your body; and ultimately to achieve every and any goal in your life you need to start small and keep on moving forward. You might have heard about this as Baby Steps, stacking mini-habits, and so on… I will call it the One Push-Up principle. And here’s your strategy: Day 1: ONE Push-up, 10 second plank (or half a plank). This will get you moving. If on day 1 you want to do more, please go ahead. Just fair warning DO NOT over-do it! The idea is that you enjoy your workout, diet and therefore are willing and able to do more and to keep to it.

Here are two strategies:

The 3 plank work-out. 3 planks, 10 timed seconds each. One front plank, and one to each side. If you don’t have the strength to hold them, yet, do each with your knees and forearms to the floor. Stack up 10 seconds every three days and as you move forward and get stronger get further from the floor, first try holdin your weight with your palm, then take turns and put your legs up while your forerarms are brining you full support

The 3 exercise strategy. Exercise 1 – 10 squats, back straight, Exercise 2 – 10 push-ups, on your knees if you’re a beginner, full if you’re not a beginner, Exercise 3 – 10 V-up crunches. Raise them on 5 every week, and add a new exercise.

Enjoy!
