What have you done for yourself lately?  Do you know the most important thing you can do for your  finances, your relationships, and your health is to first take good care of you?  If you are feeling less than wonderful about yourself, then take this month to begin changing that.  Your healthy lifestyle is essential to a healthy, happy life.  The three things that will make the most difference are:

  • Cleaning up your food choices- Following a healthy diet improves your energy levels. Learning to cook a signature dish can also be great fun. I highly recommend the movie FOOD INC. It will be hard to ever see food and agriculture the same-but the changes you will make will be good for your family and the planet. Go to
  • Getting sufficient exercise- Committing to a regular exercise program improves your mood and your confidence. Remember, exercise can be fun. Get off the treadmill and join a dance class, for instance.  Or train for a Triathlon!  Set an amazing goal and challenge yourself to achieve it.  
  • Getting enough sleep- make sure your body gets enough sleep. It's virtually impossible to be exhausted and be a nice person! Sleep well; live well.

To be happy, you must never compromise on your health. Your health is more valuable to you than any amount of money you can borrow or earn. Therefore, invest in you. Be true to yourself. Know what your strengths are, and use them.

Above all, don't wait for other areas of your life to get better before you start treating yourself better.  Remember, the other areas of your life get better when you treat yourself better.

For additional support to ensure you will continue until you have truly integrated these new healthy behaviors into your life go to 

I love to help people set the foundation of physical well-being because I know how powerful it is for creating well-being in all the areas of their life!
