This week’s challenge is a piece of cake, Apples. (Hmm. We’ve gotta get a better metaphor going than “cake”. What’s with the carb cliches? Cake, toast, bread. I can think of many things that are greater than sliced bread. But I digess.)
I challenge you to tell me what you’d like to see more of here at the blog. Fitness tips? Information about a particular supplement? Helpful information for a specific nutritional interest? We’re always searching the headlines and journals for the latest nutrition, health and wellness information you can benefit from. I get emails from dozens of you every day with excellent health questions and suggestions (my apologies if it takes me a few days to respond!). If you haven’t spoken up yet, and there’s a health issue you’d really like to see covered, I’d be happy to answer it. Just click on “Comments” below. You’ll be directed to sign in to the forum, where you can quickly and easily post your request. Getting to know my customers better, as well as hundreds of new friends from around the web, has been incredibly rewarding. I look forward to talking to you!
Here’s your weekly health challenge:
We all have areas of our health where we would like to improve. For some of us, it’s wanting to lose weight or get fit, while for others, it’s feeling the need to manage stress better. Health concerns can accumulate and quickly turn into a snowball of worries. Soon you’re buried under an avalanche and the pizza delivery service is sounding really good.
This week, I’m going to challenge you to focus exclusively on the single most important health issue you need to work on. If you can tackle your most significant health concern, the rest is cake! (Wait, make that fresh fruit…or…well, you get the idea.)
Tell me what your biggest health issue is in the forum. (You can also comment in the blog forum by simply clicking on the Comments at the bottom of this post.) I promise you, the Bees and I will work with you. You might be surprised to find that other readers are working on the very same health issue. This week, Apples, stop the snowball!
With holidays, taxes and spring fever upon us, April is a hectic time for all of us – to say the least! April showers? More like April avalanche.
My challenge to you this week: get organized now so that you don’t shortchange yourself in the exercise and sleep departments this month. We all have our different systems – personally, I like to plot out the essentials for each week and not worry too much about every detail. Some of us do better when every last thing is accounted for and planned. Whatever system works best for you, get an early start on it so you can enjoy this busy month and let your list do the stressing for you. (I know, easier said than done, but go for it anyway.)
If you’re already a master of organization and time management, I’d love to hear your secrets. Drop me a line in the forum!
This week’s challenge is all about appreciation. With all that is going on in the world and at home, it’s easy to become worried and anxious from time to time. That’s not healthy, but it is part of life!
This week, focus on appreciating what you do have. Even when life is difficult, there are things to be thankful for. Count what blessings you do have, and trust that more are just around the corner.
Something to think about: spending a few moments counting blessings is much easier than the exhausting “personal development” trend that is so popular of late. Improving yourself is a vital part of good health and a satisfying life, but the irony is that this prescription can become yet another stress-inducing measure on your personal fix-it list.
Instead, just take a few minutes at a given time every day this week to reflect on what you appreciate. It’s simple, but it works.
