  • Overfed and Undernourished: You Are What You Eat

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | November 10, 2014

    drive-thruAccess to nutritionally depleted, technologically created, chemically treated “food” has many of us taking in thousands of empty calories, each and every day, without realizing the cost.

    The saying, "you are what you eat" carries a serious measure of truth. If you’re like most people, you’re overfed and undernourished. And when it comes to your weight and overall health, that’s no laughing matter.

    It’s so easy to grab prepackaged, convenient vending machine, drive-thru or shelf food – but what price are you really paying for all that “convenience”?

    • Larger sized clothing
    • Higher medical bills
    • Decreased energy and quality of life

    Our bodies are designed to eat fresh, natural, whole foods that supply us with an endless variety of vitamins, minerals, fiber and incredible nutrients.

    Think about all the many benefits (including better, fresher, more satisfying taste) that healthy foods provide. Is it really worth it to save a few short minutes of your day, pulling through the fast food drive-thru and spending your hard-earned dollars on items that can take even more from you – like your health, youth and energy?

    You may not realize it, but here’s what also happens when you eat this way:

    • Since foods that don’t nourish you can’t truly satisfy you, you overeat to try to find that satisfaction.

    • These are the foods that are the root cause of many illnesses and diseases.  Read more

  • How Daily Choices Impact Your Life: 5 Keys to Healthier Living

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | November 3, 2014

    daily-choices-questionsMost of us make hundreds of daily choices without much thought as to how they will impact our lives.

    • What to wear
    • What to eat
    • How to relate to other people
    • How to care for our bodies, minds and spirits
    • How we "show up"
    • How we nurture ourselves and those we love... and so much more

    Many of these choices are more like habits, and we don’t recognize them as choices because we don’t even realize we’re making them. But by changing how you view your daily choices, you can easily and positively impact your life and health, moving closer toward the life you truly want.

    Here are five keys to healthier living that are made possible simply by understanding how your daily choices impact your life.

    1) Nutrition / Fitness / Wellness

    What daily food choices are you making? Do you usually go for chemicals, toxins, and other unrecognizable substances and ingredients? You’re probably thinking, “Of course not!” But take a closer look. Healthier living starts with what you put into your body and daily choices should include real, whole foods that are rich in nutrients, avoiding those convenient but highly processed foods with no nutrients, just empty calories.  Read more

  • Workplace Stress: 10 Tips for Better Health on the Job

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | October 27, 2014

    stress-at-workDid you know that workplace stress continues to be the cause of many health issues, including:

    • Physical and emotional illnesses
    • Chronic conditions and diseases
    • Premature aging
    • Weight gain
    • Digestive issues
    • Sleep problems
    • Depression... and more

    So, if you’re feeling stressed on the job, here are ten tips to help relieve workplace stress for better health.

    1. Learn how to say “No”... and mean it! Though it should be a no-brainer, when you’re already overextended, taking on additional tasks only creates more stress and anxiety. Learn to say “No” and mean it, instead of piling more onto your already overextended workload.

    2. Make your workspace work for you. Personalizing your workspace with things that calm and soothe you is one of the best (and easiest) ways to create a more peaceful environment on the job. Use pictures of loved ones or photos of serene settings, a calming figurine or inspirational quote placed on your desk, even music playing softly in the background to change your workplace atmosphere. There are also apps you can download with sounds like waterfalls, birds, rain, wind or whatever sounds give provide you with serenity and calm.  Read more

  • Being Friends With Yourself: Why Speaking Positively Brings Freedom

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | October 20, 2014

    mirror-reflectionDo you shower your friends with compliments, praise and approval? You probably do, because you know that it makes them feel proud, valued and respected. You see and understand the benefit of speaking positively to your friends when you see the happiness it brings them. It feels good to bring this joy to others, right? So, why is it so hard to speak to yourself this way? Being friends with yourself brings many positive benefits, both to yourself and to others.

    For many of us, negative self-talk is a way of life.

    Without realizing it, many of us willingly put ourselves in a self-made prison. It’s bad enough that we feel negatively about ourselves, but what’s worse is that we keep these negative beliefs going as we continually share these negative thoughts with our co-workers, friends, spouses, and even our children.  Read more
