“Being relentless means demanding more of yourself than anyone else could ever require of you, knowing that every time you stop, you can still do more. You must do more. The minute your mind thinks, ‘Done,’ your instincts say, ‘Next.’ The greats never stop learning.” — Tim S. Grover Relentless

Great athletes separate themselves from the pack. They work harder, stay focused, and have the confidence in their abilities to not only win but to persevere when they falter. …

That has really been my secret to handling life’s ups and downs, however, the last two years have been very hard for me. …

Everyone has heard the phrase “opioid addiction”, but few understand what that really means. Journalists, patients, and even many doctors believe they know what addiction is, but they are often wrong.

This leads many people to be diagnosed with addiction when they do not have the disease. The consequences of a misdiagnosis can be serious because of the stigma associated with addiction.

The Stigma of Addiction

There has always been a stigma attached to people with addiction. People with an opioid addiction diagnosis ironically often have difficulty obtaining treatment for the disease because of social and even legal consequences. …

Who enjoys trying to button their favorite pair of jeans only to find fastening them roughly as easy as trying to fit a basketball through the eye of a needle?

Everyone experiences water retention on occasion. While bloating normally indicates nothing more than hormonal shifts over the course of the month, psychologically, rocking a muffin top harms self-esteem.

How to bust the bloat? While commercial over-the-counter water pills promise relief when taken regularly, these tablets upset the balance of electrolytes in the body, ironically leading to greater retention once usage ceases. …

You’ve tried all the fad diets: Atkins, Paleo, Keto, plant-based, intermittent fasting, no-sugar.

You’ve joined support groups, 24-hour gyms, attended boot camps and enrolled in employee wellness programs (not always by choice).

You’ve spent anywhere from one day to months counting points, calories, fat grams, carbs, and steps.

You’ve eaten more than your fair share of salads with dressing on the side, no dressing at all or even worse, with just vinegar or lemon juice.

By now, you’ve probably abandoned the diet and exercise program you began on January 1 and maybe even started a different one. …

How do you start your day?

Hitting off the snooze button and hoping to catch a few more precious minutes of sleep?

Wishing it was the weekend already?

Grabbing your phone to check your messages?

Rushing to get out of the door? Dreading what’s ahead of you?

The way you start your day sets the tone for the rest of the day. It’s like steering your brain in that direction.

Choose wisely and get ready to get empowered!

1. Don’t waste time sleeping in

Sleep is important and restorative, we all know that. But. If you oversleep, if you wake up late, then you tend to miss a good part of your day. Learn to get up early, or earlier than your usual, even if that’s 30 minutes earlier. Make it a habit to notice it and plan on how you will use the extra precious minutes to empower yourself. Then, enjoy your morning routine! …

Ketogenic diets — or “going keto” — gets fantastic results. Celebrities and other A-list stars confirm this, and I see it all the time among my clients.

When these women eat a diet high in healthy fats, moderate in protein, and very low in carbohydrates, they drop weight fast. Their insulin and blood sugar levels stabilize. …

Many people overlook hormonal issues when evaluating why they suffer from various health woes. Hormones serve as the human body’s computer processor, telling organs and cells what to do. When the delicate balance gets lost due to aging, exposure to environmental toxins or severe stress, physical symptoms begin to disrupt daily life activities.

When people mention hormone issues, many automatically gravitate to thoughts of premenstrual or menopausal women. However, hormonal imbalances impact both women and men, albeit in different ways. Those suspecting their body chemistry may have lost its hormonal groove can often find relief from making dietary changes that promote hormone health. …
