As the summer approaches, so does your desire to achieve that perfect summer body. But it can be easy to be bogged down by all of the pressure surrounding how to look your best, and you lose track of the good habits that can help you achieve the body image you want. The key with preparing for a summer body is to simplify things. In this article, there are three main elements of achieving the summer body you want: food, exercise and mindset. All three are equally important for you in accomplishing this task, and to fully embrace all of them all but guarantees a feeling of satisfaction in your efforts come summertime. These three tips will help you attain the summer body of your dreams.

Eat Smart

Much of your summer body will be influenced by the diet you consume in the months leading up to the summer. First and foremost, make sure you’re eating enough food. It’s important to remember when talking about diet that a healthy body is a strong one, not a body that is small because it’s been lacking the key nutrients it needs to function. Speaking of nutrients, nutritional supplements like red superfood powder are great additions to your meals, especially after workouts, so you can make sure that you are getting the nutrients you need for a great summer body. In addition to these supplements, center your diet on protein, fruits and vegetables. Find new recipes that incorporate these key ingredients to ensure that you get enough of each. If you’re low on ideas, consult a trainer at a gym or a friend you know that is particularly health-inclined for help. If you can revamp your diet for your summer body, you’ll feel great, have lots of energy and of course, look great too.

Find a Workout Routine You Enjoy

Attaining a great summer body involves plenty of working out. But who says working out has to be painful and boring to be effective? If you’re going to be spending a lot of time working out to prepare your summer body, you might as well find some ways to enjoy it. For cardio, consider finding a running group or joining a sports team so you can add an enjoyable social component to your workout routine. When you’re at the gym or working out at home, make a few special playlists that you can listen to that might make your workout experience a bit more enjoyable. With fitness as popular as it is in mainstream culture right now, there’s no need to settle for a workout class you hate or a routine that you spend every day dreading. Look for an exercise routine that you’d enjoy, and embrace it.

Practice Self Love

Keep in mind that the best summer body is one that you’re comfortable in. And if you are working out and eating right, odds are you’re going to be comfortable in your body and with your habits. But if you don’t look exactly like the image on the cover of a magazine, don’t sweat it. Remember all of the hard work that you undertook to get to attaining this summer body and show yourself the love you deserve. You never know who you might inspire.

Summer body season is almost here, and if you’re looking to prepare your body for it, eating smart, finding a workout routine you enjoy, and practicing self love are three great ways to get yourself there. However your summer body turns out, you’re going to develop some great healthy habits along the way that can last you far longer than this summer.

50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
