    by Paula Gallagher | October 11, 2016

    laughingAre you female, 40 to 50, and feeling frustrated, fatigued and flabby? If this sounds at all familiar, read on.

    Many women fear 40 and beyond, thinking that the best is behind them. However, this is not the case. As a card-carrying member of the 40-and beyond-crowd, I can tell you that feeling fantastic at 40 is not beyond reach... and it can also be more fun!

    We are all aware of the aging process. Not just the physical telltale signs, but the emotional ones as well. Emotional highs and lows, anxiety, lack of sleep and chronic stress... it all requires great effort and some days it's downright overwhelming. But there are simple things we can do to continue to have vibrant healthy lives.

  • A Helpful Strategy: The One More Principle

    by Debi Silber, The Mojo Coach | October 3, 2016

    one-more-principleSo often we set goals for ourselves and look forward to the feeling of success when those goals are achieved. We set the bar high and look forward to the day we can celebrate our accomplishment and for achieving a new level of personal or professional success. Maybe our goal is to lose 20 pounds, regain our health, improve our business, our financial status or reconnect with loved ones. Regardless of the goal we set, here’s what often happens.

    While these goals can inspire us to be, do and have more, we’re often left with a keen sense of disappointment if we fail to achieve them. We feel frustrated, upset and angry with ourselves as we identify a failure to reach the goal we set as somehow failing ourselves. We may assume that failing to achieve the goal means we’re not capable of change. So often, we also respond to these setbacks by giving in, giving up and staying exactly where we are.

  • 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
