So many times we allow negative experiences from our past to negatively affect us.  These negative experiences can have such a huge impact on our lives, as children and as adults.  I discuss this and more in this week's episode.

When striving to reach your health goals one important decision we need to be aware of but can often be overlooked is who we chose to be around.  There is a saying, "Show me your friends and i'll tell you who you are."  Quite often we become like the people we're around.  We lean on those around us a lot.  We share our successes and challenges with them.  It's important these people be the ones who support and encourage us.

If you are in a situation where you do not have a healthy support system, don't let this stop you from reaching your health goals.  There is something you can do about this. We discuss this and more in this week's episode.

Let's face it....this world is not set up for us to be healthy. Illness & obesity is on the rise.  Diseases that were associated with the older generation is slowly making it's way to our youth. Something has to change.

But there is an even more powerful solution to the decline in health. The solution is eating real foods. Wholefoods are real foods. The more wholefoods you consume the more nutrient packed your diet will be.  So we dive into what wholefoods really are, what they are not and address some common misconceptions when it comes to wholefoods.  So let's dive into this episode on wholefood nutrition 101.

When completing a program or working towards a health goal one of the most important things to do is to take action.  More importantly taking consistent action.  Unfortunately more times than not people don't take consistent action because they may be overwhelmed or not believe that they can actually reach their health goals.  So they start their program only to fall off.

One of the first ways to combat this is not to beat yourself up.  It is important to acknowledge your feelings and be honest with yourself. And you want to begin the process of determining ways to address these feelings of doubt.  One effective ways to address this is through mentorship, guidance & support.  Successful people have coaches. This helps you to avoid common pitfalls, provides accountability, support & guidance.  This can be done in person or virtually.

Another way to combat the overwhelm or lack of believe in achieving your health goals is by chunking it down.  Chunking it down is the process taking a larger health goal or program and breaking them down into small actionable steps.  Chunking it down combined with coaching, mentorship & guidance is an effective recipe for health success!
