3 Dimensions of Health

3 Dimensions of Health

There are 2 paths. The path I am looking to show you is one that embodies all of you, values your health and success. The path I have to show you knows growth, success, health and vision are matched and elevated in the heart, mind and body through your thoughts, feelings, emotions and presence.

Your True Spirit of Health

It’s interesting that you may look for a diagnosis to prove your feelings, emotions and health. A label that gives you permission to feel the way you feel. I always go back to the story of one of the greatest athletes, Wilma Rudolph. Dr’s told 

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

These are actually exciting times for health, fitness and lifestyle. While the relevance and importance of fitness and clean nutrition is at the forefront for health, this has been a trait and essential for high performance leaders. By high performance leaders I am referring those who take responsibility, value integrity and show up in passion, presence, growth and grounded. High Performance leaders often have a background in athletics/sports at an elite level, high rank in the military,

Let me tell you why. Because to be of a high-level discipline, concentration, focus, structure and emotional intelligence is required. Forging ahead is not for the faint of heart, won’t tolerate victim mentality and accepts surrender as a rite of passage with tenacity, fortitude and dignity.

This means the fun of just trying or getting in your steps or somedays you feel like it and somedays you don’t is not to the next level of health. What it is, is building your foundation- habits, discipline, structure and commitment.

There is seriousness in your next level of health as you take responsibility.

You decide you know your worth, your abilities and you choose your goals, and faith over maybes and fears.

Responsible is response able. Your next level of health will look at your Mitochondria. Your next level of health will look at autophagy. And your next level of health will look at a balance of hormones.

We go deep, rooted, grounded and vision focused with vigor. Afterall health is synonymous with vitality.

This in itself shifts your mindset and recognition of food, fitness and lifestyle. Vitality comes through choices, finding presence and peace. Being focused on food, eating, when to exercise again is foundational. Gaining autonomy in nutrition and fitness keeps you pointing your radar to new heights. Next Level.

What I love to teach is the expectation of concentration. Concentration keeps you in the moment and open. This flow state brings more awareness, heightened feeling and senses and a place of personal power.

The power of this process and experience is no negotiating with yourself. You do. You are aware in the body out of the mind and in the spirit.

Are you ready to take your health to the Next Level? Do you want to accelerate your current foundational fitness and nutrition or are you ready to begin a foundational program?

Fitness as a Lifestyle

Mindset: The New Strength Training

Mindset: The New Strength Training

There’s alot of talk around mindset. Why is mindset so important?

Just like strength training is to your muscles i.e. growth, shape, strength and clean eating is to your body i.e. healthy weight, clear mind, good energy, mindset give you that strength and control in your thoughts and beliefs.

I’ll go alittle deeper.

Mindset looks at your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, Your thoughts are electric sending out a signal. Your feelings are magnetic, what you are feeling is drawing in to you experiences- good and bad. And your Beliefs control, dictate, oversee what you think and how/what you feel.

So mindset works in all of these areas- thought, feelings and beliefs. Change your beliefs and your thoughts shift, your feelings become less or non- resistant. You can change your thoughts by seeing new perspectives, leaning in to a new focal point. With that you can shift your feelings about the thing you were charged up about- having reoccurring patterns, negative experiences or not able to reach the results you are working towards. Your feelings shift as you allow acknowledge and celebrate your shift, essentially letting go of the old limitation. You have come into a new mindset around that pattern, topic or experience. This is growth and strengthening your mind to be in alignment with your true self.

Mindset is something to train daily. Whether it be a podcast, book, you tube, seminar, journaling, meditation, something that encourages you to think, feel and believe in the unseen…That which you Desire. Desire is a feeling, turn that on and you are on your way to seeing that which you desire in your heart to be true begin to unfold and manifest.

Just like strength training takes time to build your muscles, resiliency, mindset take proper work, focus and attention.

Mindset is the operating system behind your thoughts feelings and actions. These all lead to habits. What we know about healthy habits is they lead to results plus confidence, goal setting and action which I’ll define as the work plus rest/reset. Mindset is a series of training to find the best version of yourself. Aligned with your own identity and your own beliefs.

Being in community with likeminded people, having support systems which believe and identify what you do adds to your ability to shift your mindset into one that feels true, organic, natural in alignment and excites you.

Mindset is also what separates top elite level athletes with others. These athletes have a belief, a passion, resolve so strong they become unshakeable, unbreakable. Think Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky and Simone Biles. This is another aspect Mindset holds power.

You have many ways to work and strengthen your Mindset. Let’s get to work, what are you going to begin with?

How are your resiliency skills?

How are your resiliency skills?

Resilience is one of my favorite topics. Mostly because of the experiences I’ve learned, grown from and now have as skill sets. Here’s a few pointers I can share with you.  

Resilience in today’s growing and changing world is a necessary skill to have.  Many of the qualities making up resilience can be developed and strengthened, which can improve your ability to deal with life’s setbacks.

Resilient people understand life is full of challenges.  While these challenges arise, resilient people stay open, flexible and willing to adapt to change. Resiliency is developed as one is aware of situations, their own emotional reactions and the behavior of those around them. Awares in these perspectives gives resilient people the opportunity to maintain control of the situation and problem solving/critical thinking, aka, thinking of a new way to tackle the problem. 

Here are qualities of Resilient People:

  1. Sense of control.  Resilient people believe their actions have a direct correlation to the outcome.  This gives resilient people the capability to know trust and feel they have power in their choices that affect their situation, their ability to cope and their future. 
  2. Problem Solving Skills. When crisis emerges, or challenges appear, resilient people are able to see the solution, put a plan in place and act out, follow through on the plan.  Resiliency is the skill to rationality and calmly look at the problem and envision a successful outcome. 
  3. Strong Social Connection. When you’re dealing with a challenge having a strong social network is essential.  Talking about the challenges you are facing can be an excellent way to gain perspective, look for new solutions, or simply express your emotions.
  4. Identifying as a survivor, not a victim.  When dealing with any potential crisis, it is essential to view yourself as a survivor or problem solver. Avoid thinking like a victim of circumstance, and escalating problems. Instead, look for those ways to resolve the problem. While the situation may be unavoidable, you can still stay focused on a positive outcome.
  5. Being able to ask for help.  While being resourceful is an important part of resilience, it is also essential to know when to ask for help. During a crisis, people can benefit from the help of psychologists and counselors specially trained to deal with crisis situations. There are many options of resources to help you maintain a sense of focus and presence in times of challenge.
