Summary:

I believe that health is our greatest gift and that being healthy is really about living life to the fullest every day. I believe that true wellness is found by finding balance in all areas of life; developing a spiritual practice, having healthy relationships, finding purpose in your career, being physically active, and by providing the proper nutrition to not only your body but also your spirit.

But finding a balance in the 21st century can be a challenge. With hectic schedules, constant distractions and a continuous stream of new information, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and confused about what to do and what not do to maintain a healthy balanced life.

After spending over 10 years studying and implementing, cutting edge lifestyle management techniques, attending courses, trainings, workshops with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts and coaching people of various ages and backgrounds…I’ve discovered that leading a healthy life doesn’t have to be overwhelming, confusing or difficult.It doesn’t have to be stressful, time consuming or full of deprivation.

It’s not too late to make a change

It may be common to have low energy, get sick a few times a year, and be five to ten lbs. over weight, but let’s not make the mistake of thinking these symptoms of an unhealthy lifestyle are normal… because they simply are not!

Sadly, most people fall into the category of “not really feeling healthy, but not really feeling unhealthy enough to make a change.” What people WILL do is much different than what they CAN do. Interestingly, most people don’t realize how unhealthy they are until they start to become healthier. This state of being “not really healthy, but not unhealthy enough to do anything about it” is a scary place to be in, because it only leads to one place…disease and dissatisfaction. 

Most people gradually fall into an unhealthy lifestyle. I’ve never met anyone that has shared with me that they wanted to feel low energy, depressed and unfulfilled. But ‘life’ always seems to happen and the next thing they know, they are for lack of a better term ‘fat, sick and nearly dead.’ How does this happen?

It doesn’t happen overnight but rather for weeks, months and years. It’s a slow and gradual process that deceives. My purpose and mission is to help guide people out of this unsatisfying state of poor health. Because the truth is that we are born to be vibrant, healthy human beings. It’s our birthright. 

Health is our greatest gift. Not convinced? Just ask someone who has recently lost theirs. It’s not pretty!  Cancer, diabetes and heart disease wreak havoc on people and their families. The truth is that cancer, diabetes, and heart disease can all largely be prevented through making healthier lifestyle choices.

So why do so many wait till their health is on the line to finally make a change? I believe it’s also this deceptive state of “not really feeling healthy, but not really feeling unhealthy enough to do anything about it.” Do you fall into this category? Do you know you’re eating the wrong foods and making poor lifestyle choices, which only give you short term fulfillment at the expense of your health? If you do, this is your wake up call. It’s time to make a change, to finally say goodbye to fast food and hello to healthy food fast. Don’t wait till you’re diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, heart disease or worse. You have a choice. When you finally start taking better care of yourself is when you start experiencing what life really has to offer…more joy, more energy, more love, more fun and more success.

I have great news. It’s not too late to make a change. As a matter of fact, it’s really never too late, because small choices lead to big changes. Just like you don’t become over weight by eating one unhealthy meal, you don’t become vibrant and healthy by going on a temporary diet. It’s through making small, consistent LIFESTYLE changes that lasting impactful results are experienced!  And you are worth it! 

If you hope to bring health into your life in any kind of long-term committed way, you must connect with your “big why” or the deep tenacious reason that lies close to your heart for wanting true wellness of both mind and body. This reason must be attached to what you value in life and where you see yourself going. Only from connecting with this strong core reason and the value behind it does the strength and motivation spring to keep you committed to making the necessary small changes every single day.

We live in a world were disease and dissatisfaction are unfortunately becoming the norm. There is a better way.  We must wake up to the realization that our lives are our most precious gift and start valuing them by taking action on becoming the healthiest, happiest, best versions of ourselves. We owe it to ourselves and the world.

How To Stay Motivated in 2015 to Accomplish Your Health Goals

Health is a journey, not a destination. Staying motivated to achieve a health goal can be a struggle .

If you go to any gym in the country the first week of January, you will see a massive influx of motivated people ready to shed those extra lbs. and start a new habit of health. But as statistics show, this doesn’t last long. By the time February rolls around, most of those motivated faces seem to disappear. Why is this?

Well, we are creatures of habit. Habits allow our brains to do less work and can actually help us accomplish more…when they are resourceful habits. But with the good also comes the bad. Unresourcful habits such as eating the wrong or too much food, not getting enough sleep, drinking too much alcohol and not exercising are common un-resourceful habits in our society.

An un-resourceful habit is a habit that may provide temporary immediate gratification but in the long run is extremely detrimental to our health and happiness. We pick up these unresourceful habits throughout life usually as coping strategies.

A resourceful habit, on the other hand, is one that will propel your life, health and happiness forward. These habits may not always provide immediate gratification, but in the long run their reward is much greater. Examples of resourceful habits are: exercising daily, eating nutrient rich foods, maintaining healthy relationships and having a spiritual practice.

Replacing un-resourceful habits with resourceful ones isn’t easy. It takes a strong desire, commitment and a strong emotional reason or what I call a big “why.”

Most people fall short of their New Year’s resolutions because they never connect with their big “why.” If this year you really want to accomplish that well-intended goal to live a healthier lifestyle, you must connect with a strong emotional reason and fully commit to making a lifestyle change.

Here are some questions I ask my clients to help them discover their big “why.”

Questions to help discover you’re big “why”…
1. What are you going to miss out on by not living a healthy lifestyle?
2. What would change in your life if you became healthy?
3. How would the gift of health enhance your life and the lives of those around you?

Here is my simple and effective step by step process to creating powerful motivation and keeping it.
1. Get clear on what you want. (Don’t move to step two until you have a crystal clear picture of what this is.)
2. Uncover the true authentic reasons for why you want, what you want.
3. Choose the most emotionally charged reason (your big “why”) and write it down.
4. Connect to your big “why” every day. Read it aloud upon waking and before going to bed.

Now imagine what your life would be like if you had strength, flexibility, endurance and clear thinking. The gift of health is within your reach! Right now, fully commit to taking massive action, connecting with your big “why” and making your health a priority. Another tip is to find a friend or coach to hold you accountable. Having the extra guidance and support greatly increases your chances of success.

Let’s kick off 2015 by embracing the possibility that we are much more than we allow ourselves to be and stop living life as if it’s a dress rehearsal.

Best wishes, health and happiness in 2015.

Coach Devin
