The Whole Enchilada (or taco recipe) and Dealing with Toxic Relationships.

Yes, relationships. It all boils to relationships (not the taco, thou.) 😉

Hello again!

I will be sharing the taco recipe today along with this post… Ingredients first.

 

Step One.

Ingredients

2 cups hydrated hibiscus flower

2 red tomatoes, diced

¼ white onion finely chopped

1 jalapeno or serrano chili pepper, finely diced

¼ cup coriander (cilantro)

½ teaspoon olive oil

1 jicama in very thin slices (these are your tortillas)

Salsa, and lime juice

 

As for the toxic relationship: a person exhibiting toxic behaviors and another person buying in them. PERIOD.

You might have noticed that on my other posts I stress three things: a behavior, someone buying in and an unhealthy dance or toxic relationship they have.

Again, it takes two to tango. Maybe because of my background as a humanistic counsellor, in Gestalt and on Robbinss-Madanes training I tend to focus on empowerment and the possibility of healing. I typically do not tag others and do not diagnose in my coaching or in my practice. That’s for Psychiatrists, and DSM V criteria. But I.Don’t.Do.That.

 

Step Two.

Break the pattern. Yes, you heard me well, break the pattern. And I will set forth three roads for you to choose from, because I believe what Tony says, a choice implies at least three options.

One. Leave the scene or the relationship. On the leave part you can do it either physically or emotionally. Be bolder and do both? I know some of these relationships might be family, so the emotional part (even the physical one) might be difficult and seem impossible.

Two. Learn to laugh at yourself and take things with humor. Chances are the offender might be caught off track and either stop in the turmoil come back with a vengeance. Still take it with humor, as you’ve been warned.

Three. Observe from love. Yes, you heard well, from love, specifically SELF-LOVE. Instead of understanding and making puzzles around THEIR behavior. Take a step back, pause and love yourself more. That’s the first step to be unhooked from it all.

Ah, the taco recipe:

How to make the tacos:

  1. Put the hibiscus to boil in water for 5 to 8 minutes at medium to high heat. (You can use the concentrated tea that comes from its boiling and keep it to prepare hibiscus water, a Mexican delicacy).
  2. Dice the hibiscus in fine chops.
  3. Rinse in tap water. If the hibiscus is still a bit stiff, set it to boil for another 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. In a hot pan, warm a bit of oil and cook for the tomato, the onion and the chili peppers for 5 minutes, if you don’t want for it to be a hot dish you can remove the seeds from the peppers or not add them at all.
  5. Add the diced hibiscus flower, the coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper.

 

 

Step Three

 

Take steps forward to get out of the toxic relationships and you will see your life improve.

You will notice an increase of happiness, energy and positivity in your life. Sooo… #StepUp

It’s your time to #RISE to #RAWR and #Live2Soar.

See? Now you can enjoy better relations hips, AND healthier tacos!!!

Oh, oh, serve the hibiscus in the jicama and enjoy your tacos. You can add salsa, the lime juice or go bold and add guacamole!

Have an awesome weekend!

“I believe in harmony, the way some people believe in fairy tales… All you have to do is LISTEN.”

The title of this article is based upon this quote:

“I believe in music, the way some people believe in fairy tales… All you have to do is LISTEN.” – August Rush.

I have a wide number of favorite movies, but perhaps among the most influential  in my life was this, August Rush. Long story short, I am VERY sensitive to music and harmony.

So, let’s play with that quote for a bit and change music for harmony or balance. For your life, for your relationships, in your body and even for your business.. Allow for me to elaborate a bit.

“A system operates to serve or heal its weakest link.” So  to prevent that, organize and prioritize so you cater to your largest drivers and/or most necessary relationships first. Yes, even relationships within your body.

So going a little deeper and focusing solely on one’s self. Do you hear chatter all day long about things that are beyond your control to fix? Well, silence those and focus on what you CAN fix! Listen to your body after you eat something – do you feel bloated? Lacking energy? So, perhaps that specific food (or amount) does not suit you. How do you feel after you exercise? More energized or totally depleted?

Can you see where I am headed? One of the keys to leading a balanced life and achieving all of your dreams or the dreams in the key areas of your life, is Listening to your own body.

Leading a harmonious life from within will naturally reflect on healthier and more nurturing relationships with yourself by being able to transcend negative patterns, thoughts and emotions; and consequently with others.

Leading a more harmonious life while listening to your body will translate in feeling more energized, becoming more efficient and having more time to do what counts!

Leading a more harmonious life while listening to Spirit, God, or your inner self will naturally have you at peace, more focused, more able to deal with problems and stressful situations more wisely…

However, that kind of listening goes above and beyond active listening (which involves all your senses). I will call this kind of listening, observant listening which allows for you to recognize patterns, “side effects” (like for example when you get bloated or not), and find leverage on those things or activities that will nurture you to grow.

The Goal Keeper

Good morning everyone!

The Goal Keeper

As a Life and Business Coach I love having goals and seeing how my life improves for that reason.

I am sharing with you a format I designed for this matter. As you will notice, the goal keeper has no deadline (which are my favorite kind of goals) – the reason is that Id rather build up habits and heal emotions on an every-day basis.

To be fully honest, most fitness transformations, through diet, exercise or both show (typically) in a three week period time. I know, I know, you would like to see faster results!

Other types of transformation might seem instantaneous and powerful, but the actual result might take somewhat longer.

I do too!

So this Goal Keeper format can be used weekly, quarterly or monthly (whichever suits you).

On the second slide you will also see the Habit Tracker, this page feeds the results column in the Goal Tracker, as you will be able to notice and refine changes based on your Habit Building. The sample I used is weight-loss for it’s clear, measurable and specific. Your Freebie is here:

Strong from Within Fitness!!!

Helloo!!!

Welcome back! I am posting today with something that has been haunting me for weeks. We are all about balance, true; and about real foods, fair enough. And what about fitness? Well, we are all about what we will call in this series, real fitness too!

What does that mean? Well, that means we are traditional when it comes to building strength and we recommend and prefer fitness exercises that build strong muscles and bones from within.

Our stars are:

  1. Martial Arts
  2. Yoga
  3. Body weight exercise
  4. Dancing – Ballet, Jazz, Yoga, Zumba, Barre

Yes, I know I am leaving out a lot of popular fitness trends and techniques. However, we quote these four as our favorites, because they build strength from within. Martial Arts, such as Kung Fu, and Yoga are number one and two due to their specific mix of mindfulness, breathing, flexibility, and strength building.

Body weight exercise and Dancing made the list because of their focus on building strength from within, through repetitive movements and routines. Dancing will typically involve flexibility training while you need to add some stretch routine for Body weight.

You could make any HIIT or Tabata HITT or leave them as is. Any of these are great cardio and will get you strong from within!

Happy soaring!

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!
