  • Take Care of the Caregiver - How to Maintain Your Health and Sanity

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | May 18, 2015

    caregiverRecently, I was asked to comment on: “How to take care of the caregiver?” Are you caring for others? Finding yourself exhausted and overwhelmed? If so, this is for you.

    How do you remember to take care of yourself when you’re a caregiver?
    If we’re spent, depleted and exhausted, we don’t have much to give. As a caregiver, it’s crucial to take care of ourselves so we have the energy, focus and patience to deal with others within our care and reach. If possible, it’s best to plan our our self-care plan because “if we fail to plan, then plan to fail.” That may mean getting in a quick workout early in the day, planning out healthy meals and snacks so we have what we need vs. being at the mercy of whatever is available, and writing down what we need to do for ourselves on a daily basis as an appointment, if necessary. Just as we respect our other appointments, if we schedule time for “an appointment with ourselves,” it’s more likely it’ll get done. Read more

  • Becoming a Positive Thinker: 7 Proactive Tips to Create the Good Life

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | April 20, 2015

    yes2While it may seem as if good things just seem to happen to "good" people, and the good life seems to be easier for some to attain than others, here’s some good news.

    These people don’t simply “get lucky.” Instead, they’re proactive in the way they live their lives. They’ve made a choice: to take deliberate action, avoiding what often becomes the chaos of reacting. And the experiences they create begin with the thoughts they think.

    What can you do to bring more positivity to your life, and the lives of others?

    How Positive Thinkers Think

    How does the positive thinker create the good life just by thinking differently?

    Positive thoughts naturally lead to positive feelings.
    Positive feelings lead to positive emotions.
    Positive emotions then promote positive behaviors.
    Positive behavior creates positive outcomes.

    A real example of applying these proactive steps could look something like this: Read more

  • 7 Spring Cleaning Strategies to Feel Healthier, More Energetic and Happier

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | April 6, 2015

    spring-clean-your-lifeWe've all heard of "spring cleaning," which is a time to get rid of what you no longer need, declutter, change over your closets, and get ready for longer days, more sunshine and more opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. While spring cleaning can be a great way to get your home in shape, it's also a great time to tune up your life to feel healthier, more energetic and happier. Here are seven areas that may need your attention after a long winter:

    1. Your eating plan: Short days, holidays, vacations and travel over the last few months may have left you with winter weight gain, raging sugar cravings and some unhealthy eating habits that need to go. Want to look and feel better ASAP? Ditch the sugar and refined foods and instead opt for whole, real, nutrient-dense foods. Skip "frankenfoods" that come from a factory for foods that come from the earth. Your body will respond by happily shedding those extra pounds while giving you tons of energy, better sleep, clarity, a greater ability to focus, fewer cravings and so much more. Read more

  • 9 Strategies to Lose Weight and Stop Dieting... Once and For All

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | March 23, 2015

    healthy-livingStruggling with excess weight? Whether you’ve recently gained a few pounds or chronic dieting is a regular way of life, here are nine strategies to lose weight and stop dieting... once and for all. Ready? Here we go:

    1. Kick Your Sugar Habit. If I didn’t have thousands of clients who’ve done it (including myself), I wouldn’t be as convinced that this is the single greatest, most important gift you can give yourself for lasting weight loss, energy and health. Imagine your cravings gone, fat melting away, endless, steady energy and so much more. That’s what happens when you kick sugar to the curb.

    2. Find Your Motivation. There’s a deeply personal reason why you want to get the weight off. Sure you want to look and feel better, but dig a little deeper and what you’ll find is the real motivation behind the attempts you’ve made in the past. Do you want a new relationship, confidence to change careers, energy to keep up with your kids? Identifying your “why,” writing it down, and reading it throughout the day can help keep you motivated and on track.

    3. Identify Automatic and Habitual Behavior. We’re creatures of habit and the majority of things we do throughout the day prove it. Just try to brush your teeth differently, put on the other leg of your pants first, or change your morning routine and you’ll see what I mean. How does this apply to weight loss? Read more

    What is a migraine? It is a severe, painful headache that can last anywhere from several hours to several days. Migraines differ from traditional headaches in that they are usually accompanied by other symptoms such as sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, or flashes of light.

    Who is affected? Migraines can affect adults and children, but are most often reported by adults. Women are three times more likely to suffer from migraines than men.
