  • Consistency vs. Intensity

    Wise Words coming at you from one of the greats, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson today: “Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” I know, I know - the consistency talk can start to sound a little repetitive (there's a joke in here somewhere), but it's because it's truly valuable information that we need to hear on repeat! If I asked you which is more important, consistency or intensity, where does your mind go? I get it - we're looking for the biggest bang for our buck. Increased intensity and output can be a useful measure of growth and success. But what about the days where you're ....

  • The Most Important Meal of the Day?

    The Most Important Meal of the Day?

    It's Breakfast! Right? No- wait it's lunch now? But my biggest meal is dinner... somebody make it make sense! Sound familiar? Would it be at all surprising to you if I told you all of this and none of this can be true all at once, hence why it's so confusing and why there seems to be so much conflicting information floating around out there? Let's discuss, one meal at a time, in no particular order- but we'll start with breakfast. I know we have ALL heard "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" uttered many times before. Perhaps you've said it yourself! The first meal of the day is appropriately named for "breaking your fast" from the hopefully long and restful night of sleep ....

  • The Un-sexy Power of Habits

    The Un-sexy Power of Habits

    We're meditating on these Wise Words this Wednesday! “New goals don't deliver new results. New lifestyles do.” When was the last time you felt like you saw real, tangible results? How did it happen? Was it simply deciding one day on a new goal and then BOOM there it is? Or was it the consistent, mindful, day-to-day choices that got you where you wanted to go? Of course goal setting is a crucial piece of the puzzle. It's a great idea to check in periodically and take inventory on where we are and where we want to go - whether it's physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, career-oriented, fitness related, family friendly, or most likely a wild combination of all the ....
