  • You Write the Script on How Others Treat You

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | August 8, 2016

    thoughtfulYou write the script for how others treat you. Treat yourself with respect and kindness, expect respect and kindness. Treat yourself with love and compassion, love and compassion will be the way others treat you.

    The people in your life are following your lead. They’re acting, behaving, and relating to you according to the rules you set. Here’s an example. I had a client who was so frustrated because she kept dating “the same type of guy.” She couldn’t understand why she was constantly mistreated and taken advantage of. Read more

  • Food: It's Not About Willpower

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | July 19, 2016

    binge-eatingIf you’re like many of my clients, you may have struggled for years, often decades, having a dysfunctional relationship with food. Food and emotions are so intertwined, which can lead us to eat for any number of reasons other than physical hunger. We can eat socially, mindlessly, emotionally, or have binge-eating behaviors that keep us overweight, frustrated, exhausted and unhappy. But it's not just about willpower.

    Binge eating can happen because:

    We’re over-hungry, which leads to overeating.
    We haven’t created a strategic plan for our eating.
    A trigger (person, place, thought or feeling) encourages a binge. Read more

  • Yoga For Beginners

    by Paula Gallagher | July 13, 2016

    yoga-class2I am a beginner. The group of ladies on my street have been trying to get me to go with them for years. However, my perception of yoga – silent, meditative, slow – never appealed to me. Personally, I'm a mover. I need to run, jump, climb, sweat to feel like I am getting a workout. How could such a slow gentle workout, well, be a workout? I was wrong. Finally caving in, I attended my first class in yoga for beginners and found myself thoroughly challenged and feeling strong afterward.

    If you have never attempted yoga and are skeptical about its benefits, here are some tips. Read more

    by Paula Gallagher | July 12, 2016

    happy-workplaceWhether we’re tired, stressed, hungry, or distracted by problems at home, it’s okay to have a rough day every now and then – but it shouldn’t become a regular occurrence. These quick tips for a happier workplace can help you get back on track and enhance productivity, fight fatigue, and reduce stress, all in a day’s work.

    1. Make the most of your lunch break: Taking a short break can help you refresh and restore, increasing your productivity for the rest of the day. Step away from your desk and take time to enjoy your meal. If it's nice out, head out for a 15-minute walk. Make sure you also pack an energy-filled lunch. Protein powers up your body for a busy day, warding off a dreaded afternoon energy crash. Read more

  • Emotional Eating: What Are You Really Hungry For?

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | June 13, 2016

    midnight-snackWhat is emotional eating? Emotional eating is when we eat to soothe, calm, numb and relax, in response to our problems or our pain. We’re self-medicating, and food is simply our drug of choice.

    Why is this important? First of all it’s important because we may be doing this and not even know we’re doing it. You can’t change what you’re not aware of. In becoming aware, that’s the first step to changing something. Often we’ll be stressed, or we’ll be anxious about something, or there will be an issue that needs our attention... and what do we do? We stuff ourselves to stuff the pain. And we don’t even realize it. Of course, we’re not handling the problem at all and it’s leading to weight gain. Read more
