5 Things Happy People Don’t Do

(And What They Do Instead.) We all want to be happy. Some of us do a really good job at keeping our emotional set point pretty high, while some of us struggle to find joy in anything. And then there are those of us feeling like we’re at the mercy of external circumstances making “happy” a wild rollercoaster ride. So what are truly happy people not doing (and more importantly – not thinking) that distinguish themselves from the rest of us? After lots of conversations, research, and reflection it seems to come down to these 5 simple things. Happy people don’t: Suppress emotion. As a conditioned left brained thinker this was a hard one for me to get. I’ve understood emotion as a function of thinking, not simply a natural component of the human condition. That’s since changed for me and

5 Secrets To Reach Your Fitness Goals

This week I’m sharing the wisdom of my dear friend and mentor, Aniela Gregorek, co-founder of The Happy Body Program. I credit both Jerzy and Aniela Gregorek  for significantly changing my life and introducing me to an approach to health that is instinctive, sustainable, and REAL. These secrets below have become my way of life and as a result my natural default is radiant health, freedom, and joy. Interested? Read on… By Aniela Gregorek In moments when we admit that our diet and exercise habits aren’t working, it’s easy to fall into “if only…” excuses. Instead, we can turn the corner on old habits and discover an exciting new direction that gets us off that old treadmill. If you want to become truly lean and fit, you need a holistic, sustainable routine that works for your mind, body and spirit. It’s actually easier than


Hardship Required

Does overcoming personal hardship imply making a significant difference in the world? When I think of people that make a big impact it seems that every one of them has overcome hardship. Ok, maybe not everyone, but most. I stop and ponder the motivation. The empathy and compassion these folks are tapped into isn’t fake, it’s real  – they have a deep genuine desire to connect with those that are in need and improve their lives. Why? Because they personally have known the suffering. I don’t know if you know much about Tony Robbins, but in his latest book he talks about his childhood. Pretty rough stuff. And look what he’s doing now. Pretty phenomenal. Then I reflect on my own life. By no means did I suffer greatly, but in my own way I had personal hardship. When I

Stand like Batman. Solve your problems.

  This year I said I’d be getting real. What’s more real than Batman? I don’t know about you but this year has started off with a bang and I can barely keep up. More obligations than I know what to do with, mental preoccupations that are my own fault, and a 2 year-old reigniting separation anxiety. Wine please? Maybe I’m tapping into the collective consciousness that is hope and optimism in the January month – new beginnings, fresh starts, invigorated commitments. Or maybe I’m just committed to being busy. Either way, there’s a lot going on. I’m sure you can relate. For the most part, I think I’m rocking it. But I falter when the word “should” creeps around the corner and invades my thinking. Particularly around parenting. I’m pretty stellar at keeping that word and all it’s variants

Getting Real

    It’s a bit hard to begin writing this year, so I’ll begin by getting real. Last year I committed myself to blogging regularly, grow a following, and share the essence of common themes I see emerge in conversations. I’ve been convinced that by sharing the “secrets” of my work, I could make a difference. While I’m certain I’ve made at least a small difference from the feedback I receive, something’s been tugging at me telling me there is an opportunity for more. While the tips and tricks I share may be helpful, it’s been feeling too surface level. After some deep personal inquiry at the end of 2014, I think I know what’s next. I’m getting real. Sometimes life is tough. It can be brutally painful and hard. And then it can be blissfully serene. Things either make no sense

Holiday Eating Tips – Food vs. Joy

(Holiday Eating Tips – originally published on The Womens Project as Food vs. Joy.) Wouldn’t you agree that the holidays bring up just as much stress as they do joy? As Christmas music starts to play, twinkling lights begin to go up, and cloying scents of cinnamon and pine waft through department stores, our nostalgic childhood memories are summoned by familiar feelings of joyous anticipation and comfort.  It feels wonderful. Until it doesn’t.  Crowds, hyper-materialistic consumerism, and weight gain, oh my! We might be pretty good at controlling our experience around mobs of crazed shoppers, but what about all the amazing food?? I mean, we HAVE to eat to stay alive, right? While we can avoid Black Friday for sanity’s sake, we cannot forgo sustenance.  It’s not so easy to eliminate the things we need to survive (read: fudge), especially
