2013: A {Healthy} Plan for Progress, Not Perfection!

by Ron & Lisa Beres on January 2, 2013 · 0 comments

Ron and I hope you experienced a joyous and peaceful holiday and savored some well-deserved rest, time spent with loved ones and a merited mental (and/or cyber) break.  Ahh, the holidays always seem to depart too fast as the pressure of New Year’s goals wrapped in glittery bows of guilt loom just around the corner.

On a recent trip to our local gym we observed the typical increase in members that we have come to expect at the start of a new year. We both noticed that this new-attendee enthusiasm tapers off almost as quickly as the second calendar month rolls around as many peeps revert back to their old, comfortable habits and routines. This, in conjunction with the plethora of weight loss advertisements that seem to appear like clockwork each January, got us thinking about how, as a society, we need to understand that lasting and positive change comes from a shift in the mindset; not the calendar date.

Our hope for you this year is that we act as your dream team coaches to help empower you to live your best life with a full commitment to change.  In 2001, when I became sick from toxins in my newly remodeled home, I realized that in order to change my health, I needed to eliminate the source of the problem.  It was a complete mind, body and spirit overhaul because you can’t have true health if these three are not in alignment.  Hence, losing 10 or 15 pounds and surrounding yourself in a cesspool of toxins at home or work, isn’t going to solve your problems.  If you don’t feel good physically, you won’t mentally.  Not to mention, many of the chemical toxins found in our homes and personal care products are linked to obesity, thyroid issues and other endocrine system disruption.
