The Future You !

Here’s something I’ve done for myself and asked my daughters to do for themselves…..

….

If you are really honest, in a good state of mind, and really try to get into it, you’ll benefit.

I’d recommend that you revisit these often and save it for years to come…..

  • Picture YOU, five years from now….
  • Picture YOU, five years older, wiser, happier, better….
  • What do you look like?
    What are you wearing?
    What does your body look like?
    What is your life like?
  • Your career?
  • Your social life?
  • Your relationships?
  • See yourself smiling a bright, sincere smile….what are you smiling about?
    See yourself being excited…..what are you excited about?
  • See how confident, relieved and relaxed you are….
  • OK, what does your Perfect Day look like five years in the future? Be specific.
  • What things are you grateful for?
  • What things are you happy about?
  • Now the future you is going to talk to you….what would Future YOU say to the present you?
  • The Future YOU is going to tell you a secret, something wise and important about your life until then….what is it?
  • The Future You tells you about one great choice you made between today and that 5 year point – what was that choice?
  • What thing(s) can you do today to become the future you?

Write it down. Review it. Save it.

Take care!

Sweet thing….? or Toxic?

Not long ago I came across a book (The Belly Fat Cure, by Jorge Cruise) about cutting down my sugar intake and how it affects our energy and health – not just our weight. I’m not talking just cutting back on carbs or loading up on protein and it isn’t just about going on a diet or losing a few pounds. …..

I followed the suggestions in that book and found my energy and health improved greatly. I felt much better. The more I read in other journals the more I learned that sugar may not only be just an obesity / weight issue for all of us but it may really negatively have an impact on heart health and cancer.

There was a recent re-run on 60 Minutes Aug 5th, 2012 of how sugar may be toxic. I recommend that you watch that when you have the time.

Please, for your own health and those around you, watch these clips!

Here are a few short video summaries
