Water is water. No other fluid counts as water. Water is the healthiest drink on the planet is water. There is no better nourishment for us to consume. You need to be mindful of this and always have water with you and stop throughout the day and drink just pure and simple water. You need to steer clear and avoid negative no nutritional harmful soda pops and sweetened juices. Get more water in your life.
Here we go! Holiday eating is always a challenge even for the most healthy of us. I want to share some tips with you to make things a bit easier this holiday season. First, eat a little bit before holiday events so you are not starving when you get there. Next, do your thing when you get there and don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for not eating. You are the one that is going to step on the scale in January and have to deal with that number. You can politely say no or politely say yes and take a small amount. Also, here’s a tip I have been doing for years and have had great success: Use a smaller plate – both during the holidays and all throughout the year. Even if you fill it up, it will be less than half of what you would have on a regular big dinner plate. Lastly, I want you to resist going back for seconds or thirds. Go get a drink of water or tea if you are still feeling hungry or you want to have something in your hand. Focus on the people at the party and Let’s not overeat and overdrink this season! This is your life. You need to make good choices today. Right now.
What is a vision board? It is a board you look at every day focused on the vision of the life you want to have. You find pictures of the life you want and stick it where you can see it every day. It may sound silly, but it really works. It has worked for me and countless others. When we focus on the life we want, we move towards that life and those goals. It is pretty simple to get started. Go to your local office supply store for a basic corkboard or a home decorating store for a fancier one if you wish; pick one you like and put it up in a place in your home you are daily like your home office or a hallway.
Next, cut out pictures that align with the vision of what you want your life to be. Some ideas for the vision board: a picture of someone in your age range with the body you aspire to have, the marathon you want to run, the project you want to start or finish from writing a book to renovating your kitchen, or the vacation or trip you want to take. Get started on creating a vision of the life you want to have and be living moving forward.

STUDIO GUEST MIKE, The Around the World Runner
No matter how fast you are or slow you are – there are always runners faster and slower than you. Do your own thing, but track what you do so you can see your progress. Start with walking and running. Walk once around the block and then run once around the block. Running is great way to not only boost your metabolism, but change your metabolism. Mike decided to have a goal to run as far as going around the world once and has run 90% of his 22,600 goal miles so far. Listen to my chat with Mike and how he accomplished this goal and still is running.
MONEY, MONEY, MONEY
Money is and always will be a hot topic. It is one of the biggest stressors in people’s lives and one of the top 3 reasons why relationships end. You need to live BELOW your means. It doesn’t matter if you are making $40,000 a year, $400,000 a year, or $4 million a year. True wealth and financial success is living below your means, having savings, and having no debt. It is not the dollar amount you earn or where you are on the spectrum that is financial success. It is to live below your means and take care of your debt and put money in savings that is success and freedon. If you do these simple things, you will be amazed at what happens to the stress level in your life. You need to have a map and plan. Listen to Dr. Dave talk about how money can stress out your life and how you can be debt free and not be a slave to the bank and your debtors.
TOXIC PEOPLE AND TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS
If you can fix it, do it! Do everything you can to fix it. Nowhere does it say you have to be with someone or have someone in your life that is toxic. If you cannot fix it, get out of it. It will change your life to get the negative people and negative energy out of your life.
