There are two parts to every great healthy city. The first is access to quality and affordable health care. The second is promoting and enabling a healthy lifestyle for its residents through infrastructure and amenities. With this in mind, Livability.com has named Minneapolis the Top 10 Healthiest City, 2015. Minneapolis provides residents with exercise opportunities, good food choices and strong support networks to help live healthy lives.
Today will be a quiet day. This is the title and affirmation from chapter 10 of my book "Study to be quiet." The things that we say to ourselves to begin each day can shape how we will deal with the challenges that will come our way. What do you do when you get overwhelmed? How do you deal with the stress and the pressure that each day brings? Every day, a little more pressure is added to your emotional reservoir. Every day it gets closer to capacity. Each of us should begin each day by speaking peace into our lives.
Motivational Moments: Spring cleaning: Identify what you need to keep or get rid of
Tuesday, 07 April 2015 15:15
This is the week that I start my spring cleaning. I have so much "stuff" to get rid of and will do exactly that! I realize that some of the things that I have collected through the years have got to go. Why have I been holding on to so much of this "stuff" for so long? Many of us hold on to things that we know we don't need and so it's time to let go.
Spring is in the air, and relationships old and new will be in full bloom. This is a good time to do some self-evaluation because no relationship can ever be better until you are better. Improving yourself improves your relationship. Don't worry about the other person. Who you choose to be in a relationship with is a by-product of how you feel about yourself. Two healthy people are needed to build a healthy relationship.
Motivational Moments: Take time to sit and be still for a moment
Thursday, 02 April 2015 15:26
There is value in resting and taking time out to care for you. So often we spend so much time looking out for others that we forget to look out for ourselves. Recently, my schedule has been so busy with a full time job, writing, and my Life Coaching practice, that I had to take a moment and just breathe. Don't get me wrong, I am completely grateful for all that I have been blessed to do, (especially the opportunity to help others reach their goals and change their lives), but there are times when I too have to find the time to just sit and be still for a moment.
What is a soul-tie? A soul-tie is a spiritual and emotional connection that is created when a woman gives herself sexually to a man for the first time. An extreme emotional bond is created. This was God's way of bonding a wife in a supernatural covenant spiritually and emotionally to her husband. Our current relationship is not a single life event. There are invisible forces that impact our existing relationships. One of the biggest hindrances in today's relationships is a negative emotional soul-tie. Like the unseen negative influences that a past divorce can have on a present relationship, unseen forces like a soul-tie can and will impact our current one.
