Fatigue can whack us upside our heads any time of year, any time of day, especially during the holidays. So much to do. So little time.  Am I right or am I right?  I’m exhausted just thinking about how tired I am!!!

What to do?  How can we recharge our batteries, rev our engines, and strut our stuff when our holiday to-do list is longer than our arms?

Here are a few of my best energizing secrets that will bring a smile to your face, a bounce to your step and a zippidy-doo-dah to your holiday!

1.  SHAKE the DOLDRUMS OUT of YOU

Sing, chant, hum, dance, prance, bang your drums, run in circles, skip, and/or walk backwards. Do what you have to do to shake the doldrums out of you! We don’t want anything to get in the way of you claiming what’s yours!

2.  ADD a HINT of RED

As Bill Blass says, “When in doubt, wear red!” Red is the most energizing of all colors. Just a hint of red will do; no need to dip your entire body in it! Try wearing a pair of red earrings, a red scarf, or even a red pocket square.

3.  SPLASH COLD WATER on YOUR FACE

A quick splash of cold water, first thing in the morning, may energize you even better than a cup of caffeinated coffee! No kidding.

4.  TAKE a WIFF of PEPPERMINT

The strong smell of peppermint will not only wake you up, but it will help you to move through your day more quickly and efficiently. Keep a bottle of essential peppermint oil in your purse or drawer at work for a quick pick-me-up!

5. RUB Your EARS

Did you know that by stimulating certain pressure points on your ears you can increase blood circulation and energize your entire body? It’s true! Vigorously rub your ears for one minute and feel the energy flow.

6. BREATHE

Most people are “shallow breathers.” This type of breathing causes carbon dioxide to build up in your blood and make you doze-y, snooze-y and lethargic. By taking in a few deep breathes, you will get the oxygen moving through your system again. This will help you to become alert!

7. EMBRACE IMPERFECTION

Trying to be perfect can be exhausting, and it can lower glucose levels in your brain, making it that much more difficult to function! When your “perfection gene” gets activated, remember to embrace imperfection. What a relief! Enjoy the wave of peaceful and calm energy that now flows through you.

8.  STRAIGHTEN UP

Slouching can cause your brain to receive up to 30% less blood and oxygen. It also compresses your internal organs, compromising their efficiency. Hunching over your computer promotes shallow breathing.

9. FEED your FAT HEAD

Approximately 50-60% of your brain is pure fat. The fat serves as insulation for your brain’s billions of nerve cells. The better insulated the cells are the faster your brain sends messages and the speedier your thinking. Eat a mix of healthy fats for energy and productivity! Here are few excellent choices: wild salmon, mackerel, anchovies, dark green leafy vegetables, or avocado.

10. REDECORATE

Changing the colors of your four walls can give your home and your brain a much-needed lift. Or – if painting your home is just too much to do, especially during “the” season, then try repositioning your furniture to get the chi (energy) moving again throughout your home.

I hope one or two or all ten of these energizing tips work for you!

Happy Holiday Energy to All!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: How Did She Lose 60 Pounds…one word answer?

"Your gain is my pain. Call me."  ~  Janice Taylor,  Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

“Your gain is my pain. Call me.” ~ Janice Taylor, Anti-Gravity Coach, Helping You to Rise Above and Go Beyond (self-Imposed) Limitations

One of my star clients, who just happened to have permanently removed over 60 pounds of excess weight, told me that one of the most important components to her success was—in one word—diligence!

That’s right folks. She did not talk about her food choices. Nor did she talk about exercise. While both were important parts of her healthy living/weight loss plan, she knew that her mindset was the most important factor to her success. And her mindset was about commitment, concentration, dedication…in a word…diligence. She persevered even when she did not feel like it.

Chew on this Mattieu Ricard quote and see how you can apply it to your permanent weight removal efforts.

“Being diligent in your practice should not depend on your mood of the moment. Whether your meditation session is enjoyable or irritating, easy or hard, the important thing is to persevere. It is when you don’t feel like meditating that it might have the most beneficial effects, because at those times meditation is working directly against some obstacle that stands in the way of your spiritual progress.” Mattieu Ricard from Why Meditate?

Rewrite so that it “fits.”

“Being diligent in your practice should not depend on your mood of the moment. Whether your weight loss efforts are enjoyable or irritating, easy or hard, the important thing is to persevere. It is when you don’t feel like eating healthfully that it might have the most beneficial effects, because at those times your new way of life is working directly against some obstacle that stands in the way of your spiritual progress.”

Just when you think you cannot say no to the donut, just when you think that you “deserve” a huge serving of comfort food, just when you are sticking your hand into the bag of cookies, just as you lose your resolve, know that you are working directly against some obstacle that stands in your way of your spiritual progress.

Yes, that bag of cookies is standing in your way of being your best self; those unhealthy choices are creating a detour that takes you off the Path to Sveltsville. Healthy eating, healthy thinking, healthy actions; all that we are talking about and working on transcends the number on the scale.

“This” is a spiritual journey. You may think that your goal is to simply lose weight, but this goal far transcends your body size. You are creating habits that have the power to take you beyond “temporary emotions.” Your new habits are your roadmap, your blueprint; they are your path to “freedom.”

Think how empowered you have felt in the past when you honored your commitment to your healthy eating/healthy living goals. Even when you didn’t feel like it; especially when you did not want to, did not feel like it, when you were flooded with emotions and thoughts that were leading you away from healthy living. Even during the holiday season!

Be Diligent. Stay Focused. Make Healthy Choices.

Deliciously and Diligently Yours,
Janice

Here, Our Lady of Weight Loss and Janice Taylor (that’s me), whip up 4 amazingly delicious and artfully presented turkey sandwiches.

The Day-After Thanksgiving Our Lady of Weight Loss approved Sandwich Recipes!

TURKEY BACON CLUB. NO joke! Use fat-free mayo and turkey bacon with your leftover turkey and serve up a Turkey Bacon Club sandwich.

OPEN HAM SANDWICH. Thinly sliced ham followed by a nice dollop of Dijon mustard, topped with a thin slice of reduced-fat cheese on a fat slice of whole-wheat toast. Pop it in the toaster-oven. Watch cheese melt. Eat. Enjoy!

WHITE EGGS AND HAM (or TURKEY) OMELETTE. Use egg whites as your base for a ham or turkey omelet. Be sure to toss in a bunch of crunchy, colorful veggies! Want to add some of that low-fat cheese? Go for it! And now place it on a thin slice of your favorite bread.

TURKEY (or HAM) PIZZA. Get yourself a thin-crust pizza (Boboli makes a good one), sprinkle on bits of turkey and/or ham, a little of that cheese. Some of those crunchy veggies. Wowzer!

What are your favorite day-after Thanksgiving sandwiches?

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
