How Do You Eat an Elephant?

How Do You Eat an Elephant?

How do you eat an elephant? One bit at a time. It is good to get excited about starting a program. It propels you to move forward but you have to watch out because after that “high”, the dip happens. You come down and now it is your dedication, consistency, and mindset that needs to push you along. And it is challenging because it may seem like you are not making progress at all but if you can get through it I guarantee that you will achieve your goals and come out of it a much better person. Anything worth achieving in this life requires a little bit of struggle, and that is great because you get to learn. As I say all the time, “It doesn’t get easier it becomes more manageable.”

Santa Fe It’s That Time of Year!

Santa Fe It’s That Time of Year!

A time for reflection and a time for looking ahead to the new year.

Many people spend most of their energy on the looking ahead part, but I think reflection is as, if not more, important if we’re going to learn and keep growing and progressing, as well as appreciate life for the journey that it is.

Have you taken a few minutes to think back over this past year?

Who were you one year ago?

In what ways have you grown?

What small (or great!) things did you accomplish this year?

What lessons did you learn?

Who came into your life that you are grateful for this year?

What did you let go of so you could move forward this year?

What new dreams took root this year? New ideas? New adventures?

What is one brave thing you tried this year? What is one fear you faced d

own?

What is one way you made a positive impact on another life this past year?

Now don’t get me wrong, 2016 was a year of a LOT of challenges for so many people, but often we forget that there were 365 days, 8760 hours, and 525,600 minutes this past year and they can’t all have been bad!

I encourage you this week to take a minute to reflect and pull out the positives and the constructive lessons from this past year before you put it to rest and move forward once again.

2016 was an amazing year of growth as we had a successful move to an amazing new space.  We were joined by Elizabeth, who is really helping everything run smoothly.

And for the Sooh family, we were chosen by Bodhi, our new son who has really made our family complete.

I hope you find many lovely minutes, hours, and days to be grateful for from 2016! I’ll share my personal lessons with you next week. 😉

For People In Santa Fe: The Amazing Benefits of Keeping Fit!

For People In Santa Fe: The Amazing Benefits of Keeping Fit!

Ekemba Sooh | December 26, 2016

Eight trusted benefits of keeping fit, even at old age

Keeping fit is a great way to stay healthy. Exercising on a regular basis has countless positive effects on the body and the mind. A study done on 25,000 volunteers has shown that physical exercising is more important to health than just losing weight. Overweight people who are fit have lower chances of developing heart problems, diabetes, or osteoporosis. Who can practice fitness? Is fitness for you? The good news is that anybody, regardless of age, can benefit from fitness. Fitness exercises range from developing flexibility to building up strength and losing extra pounds.

  • Keep a healthier heart – Fitness makes the heart work faster and it helps increase and strengthen the muscle of the heart.
  • Develop stronger muscles and bones – Fitness exercises that work the muscles, such as weight lifting, develop the muscles and increase bone density. This translates into a body that is more resistant to fractures and injuries. People over 40, who have higher risks of developing osteoporosis and arthritis, can maintain a younger body for a longer time through fitness.
  • Helps in weight loss – Fitness burns calories and reduces body fat. If you exercise on a regular basis, you will not only burn calories while you’re at the gym, but you will also burn calories while you’re resting. If you join fitness with a healthy diet, you will have a fit and excellent looking body.
  • Helps in stress reduction – You have outnumbered stress factors in your life, stress is very dangerous to your health, and it can give you a general state of crankiness and anxiety. Exercising relieves stress and triggers the secretion of endorphins in the body. Endorphins, also called “the happiness hormone” create a state of relaxation. There is something called “a runner’s high”. This basically means that people feel happier after exercising.
  • A more restful sleep – Stress and health problems sometime cause insomnia and other sleep disturbances. Fitness will give you a deep and restful sleep, which is important for the body to be able to recover and function normally.
  • Increased ability to focus – Research shows that people who exercise think faster and clearer. Fitness does not only do wonders for the body, but it also benefits the mind, through improving circulation in the brain and taking away the stress that sometimes clouds our judgment.

Long-term benefits of fitness:

  • Reduced blood pressure – High blood pressure can lead to strokes and heart attacks. Heart problems are the leading cause of death in the world. Fitness means a stronger heart, which pumps blood more efficiently through the body and the force put on the arteries decreases. Regular exercising is one of the drug-free methods to treat hypertension.
  • Improved posture – Fitness helps maintain a strong backbone with a healthy posture. It helps with back problems and back pain that are often associated with a sedentary life.
