1:DON’T DIET, DO A DETOX.
If you are unable to lose weight even though you are pounding the gym every day, please have an honest look at what you are eating. If you are experiencing the any of the 12 Symptoms that you are in toxic overload, then you need to give your body a rest. For 7 Days, cut out:
- AND ALL PROCESSED FOODS
2: STOP THE FAD DIETING.
Believe me, I did every diet in the book growing up….none of them worked. I’d drop the weight, feel good for a while, then put it all back and more. It was not until I started to eat a Plant Based Diet, following the 80-10-10 Rule, and doing my daily Hour of Power, that my weight shifted and stayed off. What you need to cultivate is a Lifestyle of Health and Happiness that works for you! When you put High Vitality, Organic as possible food and beverages into your body, your body loves you back by shedding the pounds. You don’t have to Eat Less, You Just have to Eat Right.
Most of us are not sleeping well. I know this. When I am out of balance, the first indicator is I’m tossing and turning at night. When we don’t rest, the body does not have time to restore and reset itself. Sleeping rebalances the chemicals in your brain, helps with lean muscle growth, improves energy levels during the day, and decreases stress levels. If you are having a hard time falling asleep at night, try taking a relaxing Epsom Salts Bath and doing my 10 Minute Meditation before bed. It really works!!
4: YOUR HOUR OF POWER.
Many of you know I owned a Yoga and Fitness Center in Kingston called Shakti Mind Body Fitness. I wish I knew then what I know NOW about developing a healthy lifestyle…. I could have helped so many more people. I used to see so many people doing 2 or 3 classes a day, but never able to lose weight. It was always such a struggle! In those days, I too used to think more is better and would often do 2 classes a day, no matter how tired I was. Today, I do one hour a day of exercise, followed by deep stretching and meditation. I also take rest days to allow my body to recuperate and some days I move my body, but in a more gentle way. I’ve learned to stop fighting my body into perfection but loving it as it is. Develop and Hour each day, just for you, that works for you. If you are hating what you are doing, it will never work!
5: TAKE CARE OF YOU!
Yes, no one else is going to do it for you, I promise, so stop dreaming. Learn to practice Radical Self Care. Taking time in nature, meditate, take a long bath, extract yourself from negative people and situations that drain your energy. Learn to say no. This my friend, is a game changer.
