Live a more enjoyable and meaningful life
How will you remember this time of early 2020? How did you live?  Will you recall how you were possibly quarantined, riddled with angst and fear, hoarding toilet paper? OR... Will you remember how for the first time in a long time your family shared meals together, played games together, talked, laughed and loved together? It's time to flip the switch for a more enjoyable social distancing experience. The way you took the time to relax and partake in some self-care and reflection. You finally finished that project you put off. Implemented your health and exercise routine? The constant and elevated stress of daily living and working melted away, allowing you to be more mindfully present in each moment? Social distancing has given us the gift and opportunity of being able to do a lifestyle “re-set”.  Living a more enjoyable and meaningful life. Gratitude, compassion, empathy, and joy can be… View More
Are you putting living your best life on hold?
Are you putting living your best life on hold? Do you ever just feel like you’re putting living your best life on hold? Maybe you’re waiting for the perfect time to do what it is you’ve always wanted to do. You might think you need to get yourself to a better career position before you can have fun. Perhaps you don’t think you deserve to take time for yourself when there are so many things that your family needs. Regardless of your reasons, putting your life on hold and waiting for someday to do the things you aspire to is rarely a good idea. The fact is, we’re never guaranteed a tomorrow.  Instead, decide what it is you want out of your life and take action steps to get it right now. Not tomorrow. Not someday. Take a look at the following suggestions to get started living your best life… View More
Stop Trying to Lose Weight for Your Healthiest Life!
Stop trying to lose weight! No More Restricting Calories! Based on my personal experience and working with my health coaching clients, I have learned a very important lesson. The secret to living your healthiest life is to not “try to lose weight!” I know this may sound counterintuitive, but let me explain. Time and time again, it is proven that counting calories or restricting our food intake is not a sustainable plan for maintaining our ideal weight or optimizing our health. In fact, most people (as high as 90%) of people who do lose weight, end up gaining it back and many actually gain back more than they lost! The problem is, when you focus on trying to Lose Weight , there is a finish line, an end result. And once you reach the goal, you take your foot off the gas and resort to the old habits that led to… View More
Money Coach versus Financial Advisor?
 WHICH PROFESSIONAL SERVICE DO YOU NEED? “What do you do?” I’m often met with a confused look among business mentors, associates at networking events, and friends who don’t quite grasp, at first, exactly what a Personal Finance Coach or Money Coach  does. I have one family member, in full-fledged support, disappointed because he had just gone to a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) for a consult. After two meetings, he had transferred his portfolio of assets through this new financial advisor. Said family member would rather have had me provide this service for him in support of my professional endeavors. I gently explained that my services do not compete with those of his CFP and that I could still help with the coaching aspect of his issue. A win-win-win for us all! I’ve spent several minutes of a conversation going round and round with one business advisor, explaining what my business… View More
Daily Practices for a Happier More Mindful Life
Find something every day to be happy about can change your life!

Five Steps to Help You Reach Your Goals in Life and Career
Staci Witten, ACC, CPLC I could talk all day about goal setting, but chances are you have read the books and listened to the seminars on the topic. However, even though you are familiar with the topic, you still may not be meeting your goals.   Why?   In order to reach a goal, you have to really own it. To really own a goal, you must really want change.   And, to change you need to know why you want to change. In other words, you need to know your “Why?”  You discover your why by examining the various areas of your life (Faith, Health, Family, Career, Social, Family, Recreational, Environment, and Finances ) and determine where you need or want change.  To assist you in the process, download my complimentary tool (It’s absolutely free to the Living Healthy List community!) Career is the area I want to focus on today.  But,… View More

5 Ways to Feel Like a Kid Again and Why It Matters
Feel Like A Kid Again! “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” George Bernard Shaw When was the last time you remember feeling like a kid? I mean that in the best possible ways; playful, carefree, in the moment, moving your body with abandon, completely unself-conscious? If you picture a beautiful summer day, kids are laughing and squealing with joy as they run and play, doesn’t it just make you smile? Many adults think of play as only for children. It turns out there are incredible benefits of play and innumerable ways in which to enjoy i..

Health Food Supplements You Should Know About
Health food supplements (supplements) are one of the hottest selling products in the market these days.  In the US there are billions of dollars in sales every year. Recent surveys show that more than half of the adults in the U.S. use supplements in different forms, such as tablets, capsules, powders, soft gels, gel caps, and liquids. Its' not surprising that studies show a close correlation between health and nutrition.   When you have an insufficient amount of nutrients your body's defense mechanism is weakened causing medical problems from the common cold to severe long-term illnesses. The higher use of health food supplements is attributed to public awareness of health issues and improved standard of living. Types of Health Food Supplements There are different types of supplements, including macronutrients (amino acids, proteins, essential fatty acids), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), enzymes (digestive enzymes and antioxidant enzymes), probiotics (beneficial bacteria in the gut),… View More
Your Financial Freedom Wellness Quiz
Celebrating Financial FreedomFor years now my kids have spent the Fourth of July with their grandparents and dad.  It’s a “kid-free” few days for me.  I have the freedom to choose how I want to celebrate.  My tradition is doing whatever I feel like doing each year! Whatever the plans, Independence Day is always the perfect time to reflect on and celebrate freedoms.  It's a great time for your financial freedom wellness quiz. As a Personal Finance Coach and Educator, one of the most prominent freedoms that I give thought to and celebrate is financial freedom.   Financial Freedom Defined There are many ways financial freedom is defined. For many, it means retirement from work. Personal Finance guru Dave Ramsey says,    "Financial freedom means that you get to make life decisions without being overly stressed about the financial impact because you are prepared."    Entrepreneur, financial educator and author Robert Kiyosaki defines financial freedom as the point… View More
Is Better Sexual Health Only An Apple Away
You've heard the phrase an apple a day keep the doctor away, correct?  It's common knowledge that eating a diet full of fruits and vegetables promotes optimal health.  What if that apple is the key to better sexual health?  Could it be that simple? Is better sexual health only an apple away? Let's explore. Tom is 45-years old. He is married with two children and has a good job.

Are Your Boardshorts Damaging Your Brain?
For over 30 years, Al Baldwin held court over his kingdom on the Gold Coast beaches of Australia.  Dosing out suntans like a mobile house painter greek god with pump, hose, and can.

When it comes to men's health more often than not us blokes won’t see our doctor unless there‘s something wrong under the trunks.   When you type men’s health into a search engine you get “boardshorts medicine” results.  You know everything under the boardies is considered“men’s health”.  That's it!

Feed Your Beneficial Bacteria
Your gut and its inhabitants, the microorganisms that make up your gut microbiome have many key functions that influence your overall health. A healthy gut microbiome is important for men and women of all ages and something to take into consideration when it comes to your lifestyle and dietary choices.  I bet you've never thought to feed your beneficial bacteria. Research continually shows that your gut microbiome can influence your overall health.  Specifically through the production of metabolites that can positively or negatively interact with your immune, cardiovascular, metabolic, and nervous systems. Although a ‘healthy’ gut microbiome has yet to be defined, there are properties that are strongly associated with healthy people.   Bacterial diversity describes the balance of the different types of bacteria. It is a measure of how many different types of bacteria are present and their amounts. Bacterial diversity is important especially to increase the beneficial bacteria. Healthy… View More

Eat Well Without Going Broke
There is a common myth that eating healthy and fresh, including organic produce, dairy, and meats,  is expensive and is out of reach for many families.  As a Personal Finance Coach & Educator, I have indeed seen clients spend thousands of dollars per month on their groceries and supplements.  After all, when you don’t have your health, what else is there?  Some would argue it is worth holding on to, or restoring, at any cost.   I assure you that you can eat well without going broke! But what about those of us that want to feel great and sustain eating well, while living within our means? On the heels of the recent Living Healthy List "Diet Demystified Summit" (here's just one interview that talks about food.  You can get gain access here if you missed it) I want to provide some tips and a resource for those who struggle with the… View More

I’ve had to put on my big-girl panties and up my ‘mother’ game in a serious way, with varied success. For me, some of this involves the following: The Sisyphean task of housework - it’s constant and thankless. The house seems to be messy again before I’ve even finished tidying. And the dust. Seriously, where does all the dust come from? I will never under-appreciate my weekly cleaning lady again. Trying to work, study, and be of valuable service to my awesome clients… View More
Lisa Pepper-Satkin
The importance of understanding the difference between a coach and a therapist and why it’s important to hire mindfully. In the mid-2000’s I answered my internal call to move from my traditional therapy practice to that of an Executive Therapeutic Coach. A change that fully embodied and reflected my passion for assisting others. A change that enables me to help individuals like yourself on their journey to a more fulfilling business and personal life. Let me explain! I entered the world of the professional psychotherapist, hoping to aid others in finding and expressing their authentic selves. My dream, like that of so many others, was to facilitate, guide, and compassionately assist those seeking to work through the blocks that inhibited them from living a full and happier life. In some measure, I achieved this. Something was missing, though. In reality, I was faced with the continuous pressures and frustrations of… View More

Real Talk About About the Stages of Change
My own transformation, from a burned-out psychologist to a vibrant community volunteer, and ultimately to a calm and centered coach, took about 20 years.

A Solution to Fear and Anxiety
As a Midlife Courage Coach, I understand that most women deal with fear or anxiety every day.  You may not think that you are.  But, you are!  Even the most put together of us is combatting some type of fear or another and we really do need a solution to fear and anxiety to help us move forward in our lives. I don't necessarily mean fear for your safety, that's a separate issue.  It's something much more deeply seeded and personal. Have you ever thought that: you are not good enough smart enough educated enough Maybe your fear is how people perceive you.  Are you constantly saying yes to requests from others?  Do you take on tasks whether at work or in your personal life that you really aren't interested that leave you overwhelmed and short on time?  There is a solution. Are you afraid of success?  It seems counterproductive… View More

Growing up, I had a huge passion for performing. My schedule would consist of school, show choir practice, musical practice, voice lessons, dance lessons, and practicing on my own. When I went to college, I didn’t have that full schedule. I felt alone, bored, depressed and didn’t know the focus of my education.  I went to the gym to cope. There, I quickly learned how nutrition and fitness could impact anyone’s life. My passion for movement in performing shifted to movement in fitness. My studies in college changed from unknown with a music minor to a Bachelor's Degree in Health Promotion from The University of North Texas. After college, I continued my education and training to expanded my knowledge and experience. I am certified in group fitness, personal training, nutrition coaching.  Currently, I'm working on my Master's in Exercise Science. Currently, I am a  manager at a corporate fitness center… View More
The Secret to Losing Weight for Good
The secret to losing weight for good isn't as complicated as you might think. By far, weight loss, in the form of diet and/or exercise, is the most popular New Year's resolution. As a health and wellness coach I am thrilled that people want to be healthier, and, ‘TBH’... we all want to look better. For me, however, the most compelling reason to make this resolution is that ultimately how you will feel. Physically, you'll have more energy, feel lighter and quicker, and stronger. The most powerful benefit, however, may be what it does for your self-confidence and self-esteem. You feel beautiful from the inside out. I know... you've made the resolution to lose the weight every year and you are frustrated that you have to keep starting from scratch! You might even feel that you've tried every diet, every pill, everything! But... Did you know that the secret to losing weight… View More

Imagine waking up in the morning excited to get your family on its way and get to work, feeling in control and confident about your success - without any guilt for what you’re not doing. Imagine having the energy you need to get through your busy day, get dinner on the table, and to exercise. Imagine feeling like you again, loving, fun and at peace. Hi! I’m Lauren Weinberg. As a busy working mom, my days were hectic, stressful, and I was always flying by the seat of my pants. I was putting my wellness and happiness last and eventually, I crashed. I suffered from burnout. That all changed when I decided to design a life that worked for me and my busy family instead of always playing catch-up. The first step was making small changes that helped me start feeling in control. For example, I created an easy breathing… View More
Escape with Massage for Better Health
Massages are often thought of as a luxury. You get the chance to escape from the chaos of your everyday life and capture a moment of relaxation. But what many may not realize is that massage therapy not only provides an escape but a wealth of health benefits. As I continue on my educational journey, I am soaking in vast amounts of knowledge to empower people to manage stress and gain vitality and health naturally. Embrace the health benefits of massage therapy   I have to be honest, I am guilty of categorizing massages as a “treat” or a luxury item. But after studying the aromatherapy aspect of massage therapy and how it relates to the systems of the body, I am setting aside funds to be able to embrace the health benefits of massage therapy.  If we look back in history, we will see that in the 1900s, Marguerite… View More

My Menopause Experience
I was a bit floored; I’ll be honest with you. Recently, I created a survey entitled, “My Menopause Experience”.  I wanted to get some input and feedback from women experiencing different stages of menopause that would help me find the best ways to support them. There were three questions I asked which I was especially surprised by the answers. The first was “Who taught you about Menopause?” The multiple-choice answer was: A. Your Mother   B. Your Grandmother   C. Your Sister and D. Other (fill in).    Over 70% of the women polled said either “no one” or they researched it themselves online and in the media. The second question was: “Do you feel you had a solid understanding of menopause either before, or upon entering this phase of your life?” It was truly concerning to me that 77% of the women polled said “No”.  Can you imagine how different each of their experiences could be or have been, with some… View More
The Magic of Menopause: What You Need To Know
There are so many myths and misconceptions about menopause.  Often times, a women's perception of all phases of "the change" will determine her experience with it. Every woman needs to learn about the magic of menopause.

The Rebalance Formula™ for Food Sensitivities Master Class
Do you experience fatigue, digestive problems, migraines, body aches, anxiety or depression? Have you ever considered that food sensitivity could be the cause? Back in 2008 I was feeling awful. I suffered from such intense fatigue that on some days I couldn’t even leave the house. I had persistent body pains from my head through to my feet. What’s worse, the decline in my physical health meant that I started becoming what I refer to now as “Mean Mommy”. Because I was suffering so intensely, it made it very difficult for me to be patient and present with my kids. It was a difficult period of my life, but everything changed when I decided to adopt a gluten-free diet. Quite frankly, the results were shocking (in a good way!). Within two weeks, I was a completely different person – or more accurately, I started feeling more like myself than I… View More
Here’s a shot of courage!
The way I see it, there are two kinds of courage. One starts as a reaction. You respond to an emergency or a situation almost instinctively. It’s why someone puts themselves at risk to save another. The other type of courage starts as an intention. A conscious decision is made and a goal or a dream is pursued. This is how businesses get started, bad relationships are left and airplanes get jumped out of. There can often be many phases to reaching a big, gutsy goal. But in my experience the same first step is required, no matter what the ambition. And that first step is to declare it. For many of us this is a hard thing to do. It may feel impossible or scary.

By Lori Bryant Woolridge As a spiritual coach who specializes in love, relationships, and feminine confidence, I often get asked some version of the soulmate question.   Do they exist?   Where is mine?   How do I know? For many, believing in soulmates is a source of both angst and hope. Angst, because not having found theirs, they feel something must be wrong with them; and hope because of the idea that a very special someone-- the great love of their life—is out there waiting, gives them something to hang their loving desires upon. And I say, keep hope alive! Because with hope comes possibilities, and with love all things are possible. But it's important to temper that hope, and those lovely possibilities, with the knowledge of what soulmates truly are and the important role they play in your personal growth and soul’s evolution. Otherwise, you can lose out… View More
The “List” of Never Ending Shoulds
By Audrey Elegbede The last few days I have been overwhelmed by my ‘List’. You know the one. That list of things that loom: getting the kids camp packing done, scheduling the cat’s appointment with the veterinarian, contacting my son’s teacher for next year or our daughter’s track coach, preparing next month’s child care, organizing for next week’s graduation open house, and making sure there is toilet paper in the house. Oh, and making sure I get at least 6 hours of sleep, work a full week, and am emotionally and physically available to support my children and my spouse. (If I left anything out, it only means those things have fallen off my list, and I will hopefully rediscover them again later.) As a parent, the ‘List’ is tremendous. No doubt. As a special needs parent, however, the ‘List’ feels a little more complicated. This list also includes doctor… View More

Manifest Your Dreams: Create a Vision Board
Sheree Clark, Midlife Courage Coach Manifest Your Dreams: Create a Vision Board When I first introduce the concept of vision boards to my Fork in the Road clients, most have heard of them. However, only a handful have actually created one. A vision board is a pictorial representation of what you would like to have in the next chapter of your life. It can be literal, like a picture of the car you want, or suggestive, like a photo of a sandy beach. It might be ethereal or symbolic, like trees to signify nature, clouds for space or sunrise for peace. The end vision board can appear simple with just a few select images and lots of white space, or more complex with every inch of the board covered. All that matters is that it looks and feels good to you, that you believe you can attract or create your… View More
