How To Propel Past The Proverbial Slump

How To Propel Past The Proverbial Slump

  Do you feel stuck? In your business, in life, certain relationships, or health issues? Is the same nagging thought or string of thoughts keeping you up at night? Do you keep coming back to the same answer, but are too afraid to execute the solution for fear that it won’t be perfect, or turn out the way you want? Don’t let the little things get in the way of you moving forward.  I was at a business training a couple months ago, and we were covering the importance of setting up a clean and organized work environment in order to work more efficiently. I’m a BIG fan of this idea. Which is why I was shocked to hear the next speaker get on stage and proclaim, “If you’re messy, be messy. Build your business.” Right then a light bulb went off. If you wait for things to be perfect before making a move–in any situation–you will become paralyzed with fear and overwhelm. And, the fact is, sometimes you need to...

Holiday Blog Series: 5 Simple Strategies To Easily Digest Your Food

Holiday Blog Series: 5 Simple Strategies To Easily Digest Your Food

  Around this time of year my patients usually confess to me that they have been indulging in one too many holiday treats — and that their stomach is not as happy as usual.   Here are some quick and easy tips to help your tummy more easily digest your food during this treat-filled time of year. Or anytime of year!   1) Lemon with warm water or apple cider vinegar in the morning. Drinking a mug of warm (not hot) water with fresh squeezed lemon first thing in the morning will enhance your digestive enzymes and warm your Spleen and Stomach Qi (“chee” or energy), both of which will settle your stomach and help it to efficiently digest your food for the rest of the day. You can also try a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar in warm water, which will accomplish the same thing. (Though I prefer lemon. :-))   2) Probiotic. Find an excellent probiotic that is guaranteed to deliver exactly what’s stated on...

Holiday Blog Series: How To Add More Time To Your Day (Really!)

Holiday Blog Series: How To Add More Time To Your Day (Really!)

  What if I told you it’s possible to add more time to your day? You might think I’m crazy or hippy-dippy, or both. But you’ll be thanking me when you suddenly realize you have plenty of time to get all your last minute holiday shopping, cooking, cleaning and organizing done. 🙂 Sound impossible? In Gay Hendricks’ book, The Big Leap, he introduces a concept called Einstein Time. (If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it, especially if you are interested in taking your life to the next level of goodness.) Einstein time vs. Newtonian time Hendricks reminds us of Einstein’s theory that time is not some external force of nature, time actually comes from you — in other words, time is relative. Think of how time contracts and expands depending on what you’re doing or thinking about. When you’re with someone you love, hours seem to fly by, whereas if you’re waiting at the DMV to renew your driver’s license 1 minute seems like 12 hours....

Holiday Blog Series:  5 Easy Steps To Banish Stress For Good

Holiday Blog Series: 5 Easy Steps To Banish Stress For Good

  The holidays can be a stressful time of year, but many of us are experiencing stress year-round. Some of us are so stressed that we don’t even realize we’re stressed and think it’s a “normal” way of being. Ack! As an acupuncturist, I see case after case of disease and disharmony in the body that’s caused by, you guessed it, STRESS. I cannot STRESS to you enough the importance of banishing stress from your life as much as possible. As I tell many of my patients, it’s totally possible to be busy and not stressed. You can still get a lot done, in fact you can get even more done, when you are operating from a calm, centered, energy efficient state of mind.   Here’s how I do it: Throughout the day, every time I take a sip of water I stop for a few seconds, take a deep belly breath and say to myself, “Hello, Josie. Are you in “fight or flight” mode right now? Or are...

Holiday Blog Series: My Favorite Winter Salad Recipe

Holiday Blog Series: My Favorite Winter Salad Recipe

  I always find it more difficult in the winter months to make sure I’m getting enough fresh veggies in my diet. I seem to crave mostly warm, cooked meals, and the thought of a salad makes me chilly. However, the other day I stumbled on this combination that had just the right amount of heartiness for winter.   Josie’s Winter Salad: A few handfuls of baby spinach leaves (pre-washed makes it super easy!) Handful of dried cranberries (not sweetened with sugar) 1/2 can of  drained “Salad Beans” (garbanzo, kidney and white beans) 1/4 fresh avocado, cubed A few thin slices of red onion to taste Bragg’s Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette (or make your own dressing using 2 parts olive oil, 1 part balsamic vinegar and add minced ginger and sesame seeds.)   Other delicious variations: Try tossing in some cooked quinoa, wilting (quickly steaming) the spinach, adding feta goat cheese, tofu, chicken and/or nuts.   Registration opens next week for my popular online nutrition program where I share many...
