Seven Tips to Create Your Ideal Body

Seven Tips to Create Your Ideal Body

Here’s what I tell anybody and this is what I believe. The greatest gift we have is the gift of life. We understand that. That comes from our Creator. We’re given a body. Now you may not like it, but you can maximize that body the best it can be maximized. ~ Mike Ditka

Visualize the Body You Want

Is exercise part of your daily life? What are your eating habits? Have you seen someone who has the body or fitness level you want?

My sister Tiffany has been a fitness enthusiast for years. She is in excellent shape and looks fantastic. I have been in the gym with her when she is training and I can’t count the number times someone has come over to her and said: “I want a body like that” (motioning towards her). The wonderful thing about observing this over the years is that these people have been motivated by looking at her and have created a vision for what they want. What my sister has taught me and her clients is physicality is more than just an exercise regimen; physical fitness is manifested through healthy eating, an active lifestyle and fostering mental, spiritual and social well-being.

Discover Your True Beauty

Discover Your True Beauty

That’s the thing about inner beauty; Unlike physical beauty, which grabs the spotlight for itself, inner beauty shines on everyone, catching them, holding them in its embrace, making them more beautiful too. ~ unknown

What comes to mind when you hear the word “beauty” in association with another human being? Do you immediately think of physical characteristics or attractiveness? How would you define beauty?

The list of people associated with the word beauty or beautiful is long and distinguished. As human beings we tend to be enamored with physical beauty. The popular media floods us with endless images of men and women who fit the sociocultural essence of beauty. Every year, People Magazine even dedicates an entire issue to the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World.” Sensationalism of beauty simply intensifies stress rather than deepens satisfaction with self.

Laughter: Tonic to Your Body and Soul

Laughter: Tonic to Your Body and Soul

Live by this credo: have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. ~ Red Skelton

What Makes You Laugh?

Reward Your Body – Make Better, Healthier Food Choices!

Reward Your Body – Make Better, Healthier Food Choices!

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well ~Virginia Woolf

Food Choices. Yuck or Yum?

Who decides what food you eat? Do you think of food as a ‘yuck’ or ‘yum’ decision? How does the food you eat affect your health?

Food choices – when it comes to eating healthy, sometimes it feels like a battle between ‘yuck’ and ‘yum.’ Quite frankly, at times the idea of choosing healthy food seems quite boring and tasteless. We have all been there before, especially when we were kids. Remember your parents sitting a plate of peas, lima beans, and carrots in front of you? Did your taste buds say: ‘Yuck?’ Mine did. Now, as an adult, my taste buds don’t find favor with peas, lima beans, and carrots. I choose not to eat them. Instead, I choose to eat spinach. My taste buds say: ‘Yum.’

Silence the Inner Critic and Love Your Body

Silence the Inner Critic and Love Your Body

This is a call to arms. [This is] a call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world. ~Oprah Winfrey

Your Body’s Inner Critic

Are you comfortable with your imperfections? Do you feel bad about your looks? How often do you apologize for being yourself?

Your body’s inner critic is heavily influenced by society’s idea of beauty. It can make for a never ending head game for many of us. Especially, when you start thinking you are a problem that needs to be solved. This simply opens the door for your inner critic to walk in and take up residence in your mind. The inner critic says, “Geez, I’m overweight and have bad skin. I wish I had a six-pack,” or, “What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I look as good as the person on the cover of that magazine,” or, “I wonder if a plastic surgeon can make me look like I did way back when?”

Self-Care – Make It #1 on Your 'To Do' List

Self-Care – Make It #1 on Your 'To Do' List

Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list. ~ Michelle Obama

Your Body, Your Temple

Do you treat your body as if it is sacred? Do you have a regular exercise and fitness regimen? Are you eating healthy meals? When is the last time you went to a spa to pamper yourself?
Your body is your temple. Think about it. It is the only place ‘your self’ has to live in. Life’s responsibilities are countless for many of us. And in trying to juggle those responsibilities we neglect to take care of ourselves–our temple. We might think about our physical health but that is often where it begins and ends.
