Issue 1

Welcome to my first monthly ezine.

What's in it for you? A connection, some challenges, a few questions to encourage you simply to reflect about how you live your life vs. how you want to live your life.There's opportunity to focus on where you'd like to change and grow. I invite you to call or email to let me know your reaction, what's useful or what you want less of.

IN THIS ISSUE:

1: Personal Life Coaching: THE FACTS OF LIFE COACHING
2: Wellness: IF YOU DON'T LOOK AFTER YOURSELF WHO WILL?
3: Weight Loss: FOOD FOR THOUGHT AND THOUGHTS ON FOOD
4: Thoughts from my swing: I'M NOT USUALLY A SWINGER BUT -

1: THE FACTS OF LIFE COACHING
What would life be like if changes were easily accomplished? Finding enough time for the want-to-do's and not just the have-to-do's, adjusting your relationship with your significant other or recreating your career can be difficult. Of course, you can sometimes change these things or others on your own by giving yourself the time and motivation you need not easy but possible. However, the fact remains that when all of your personal resources are drawn upon, you are still limited by just YOUR perspective.A life coach can prompt recognition of fresh ideas and freedom to broaden your viewpoint to other perspectives. Being a nonjudgmental outsider, a life coach acts as a stimulus, a motivator to action and a cheerleader. How great would it be to have someone to help reduce your struggles?

2: WELLNESS: IF YOU DON'T LOOK AFTER YOURSELF, WHO WILL?
Looking after yourself maximizes your chances for a healthier and happier present and future. The line-up for body transplants is very long. Why not be proactive while you're waiting? Many individuals are held hostage by expectations of the people surrounding them. Pleasing a parent, a partner, a friend, a co-worker or a child is often the reason for self-neglect. An errand or obligation can easily be the reason for not engaging in physical activity, whether it's a trip to the gym, a brisk walk or dancing in front of the TV.So, I ask you what is the difference between a reason for self-neglect and an excuse?

3: WEIGHT LOSS: FOOD FOR THOUGHT AND THOUGHTS ON FOOD
It's no secret. The way to lose weight is to eat less. That sounds easy but you and I know that it's not. One way to eat less is to feel fuller sooner. If you eat more slowly, you'll eat less, since it takes about 20 minutes for food to reach your stomach and for the brain to get the message that you are indeed filling up. So, how do you prolong a meal? Start with a healthy course, like a green salad with a little dressing, half a grapefruit, a sliced orange, medium sized apple or clear soup.Try to GO SLOWLY! Take a few minutes rest before moving on. Then eat your main course - slowly of course.Pay attention to your stomach.When it's satisfied then stop eating. What would it be like not to clean your plate? Up for the challenge?

4:THOUGHTS FROM MY SWING: I'M NOT USUALLY A SWINGER BUT-
My birthday present from me to me last June was a two-seater swing.It has become my cottage by the lake, my cabin in the mountains and my special place for informal meditation and processing life. But simply, it is the swing on my front porch where I can hide behind the shrubs and observe the passing world or not. It's where I, as a human being, take over from me, as a human doing.I'm looking forward to sharing some of the insights from my swing with you.
