Eight Questions That Will Help You Get The Most Out Of Life

At the first of the year I wrote a blog about the importance of setting goals for the upcoming year, and how to ask pivotal questions that can help us evaluate where we are and what we want to accomplish. The start of fall is a good time to check in with your goals and decide if you need to reevaluate. Goals are the key to our success and our ability to lead purpose driven lives. They propel us forward and prevent us from getting stuck in the quicksand of fear, the kind that holds us back and allows too much time to pass before we realize that we didn’t pursue our dreams.

The morning after she left I was tempted to stay in bed and allow myself some time to reflect, maybe to shed some tears and yearn for the past, but I knew what I had to do. I got up and taught my Pilates class, followed by a run, and finally I allowed myself some time to be alone in my

How to Challenge Your Fear of Change

Mindfulness is the art of being present and living fully in the moment, letting go of guilt over the past and worry about the future. It helps us manage stress by embracing qualities such as patience, letting go, trust, and acceptance. Today as I was listening to a book about mindfulness, the author mentioned something that made me stop and take a pause. It's something I know so well, but in the context of what he was saying it became more vivid. It was simple: "Every ending is a new beginning." It reminded me that endings signify change, and while change often induces stress, change is opportunity. No matter how difficult, change allows us to embrace new experiences and to grow and learn as

What if I don’t want to hire a trainer, but I want to design a safe, effective program that will give me results?
