Discover How Happiness, Fun, and Success Gives You Inner Peace

Having fun, enjoying life is the way you want to live. However, many people live feeling stressed instead of feeling inner peace.  If you are at the point where you have spent too many days not enjoying yourself it’s time to create change. When was the last you took some time off? Switching from my fast paced lifestyle in New York to being on Aruba’s “One Happy Island (my home away from home) was night and day. Making the shift was worth it because I feel the best I’ve felt in ages after returning from a 3-week vacation at the Casa Del Mar Resort with my family and friends.  In case you have never been there, the island of Aruba is only about 21 miles and located in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea. Aruba may be small, but it’s a perfect place to unwind and relax. Don’t let it take years for you to invest in your well-being and have fun and immerse yourself in feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Relaxation is key if you wish to gain the full benefit from any vacation. Your mind and body need time, peace, and quiet. Once you make the decision and get settled then your mindset is ready to take full advantage of your vacation experience.  Whether on vacation or in life, it’s good to unwind and truly “BE”.  One of my most favorite experiences was taking part at the resort offered the class, Chair Yoga for the second year in a row with an incredible teacher, Gladys M Duarte. I discovered again how this low impact exercise strengthens your body and calms your spirit. It was also a great way to meet people in a fun and relaxing environment. I encourage you to find one in your area, so you can incorporate inner peace and exercise into your life. 

Needless to say, we had a blast. I ended up participating in 9 classes over my vacation. The vibrant Caribbean backdrop didn’t disappoint, my classes took place around beautiful trees near our pool and you could feel the wonderful sea breeze while working through each routine. I’m filled with plenty of fond memories and if you are struggling with stress, anxiety, or find it difficult to relax then I highly recommend chair yoga. By the end of the three weeks, I felt better than when I arrived and filled with a sense of well-being. It was a feeling of renewed peace and tranquility, and one I’d like for you to experience as well.


Some Benefits of Chair Yoga:

  • It’s a great way to relax from head to toe giving you a sense of peace as your mind relaxes.
  • Chair yoga is a quick way to stretch your body and relieve tension. It’s much healthier for you instead of reaching for food to comfort you.
  • It will increase your range of motion by opening your hips, moving your shoulders and neck. It feels so good.
  • Total body benefits as it increases blood circulation and stimulates the elimination of body toxins.
  • Improves balance, posture, flexibility, and mobility of the feet, toes, and hands.

Note- On September 17th Gladys will be here in the states at “NY Fit Fest” in Long Beach, New York, teaching with other world-renowned athletes, leading activities ranging from sunrise yoga, meditation, surfing, dance, health and more.

Life is full of choices. Make your well-being a top priority and plan some quiet time into your life. You’ll find yourself less stressed and it’s good for your overall well-being because you will feel refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Having a ritual to start your day will lead you to more success. Your mindset matters and how you feel determines the actions you take each day. My coach Sheri Kaye Hoff put together a group of expert professionals sharing their ideas for creating a successful mindset. It has helped me to live my life in a proactive manner instead of reacting to all that comes my way. I would like to share and inspire you to create a success ritual now, contact me and we’ll create a plan that will provide you the best outcome for your life. 

 Instead of focusing on problems and what is negative lean into success by establishing new habits. Make the commitment today by living a life filled with health, wealth, and happiness. When you look for solutions, new opportunities, and instill within yourself the desire for something better you will enjoy life. Routines give your life meaning and purpose. Decide today what goals are most important and what you want to achieve. A focused effort for real change can make a difference in your life and the lives of others. All you need is a plan and put in the effort to get you there. 

Here is how I define success.

Simple Practices I Follow for Focus on a Successful Mindset

Writing down what I am grateful for gave me an uplifting feeling to start or end my day.

Having a commitment to exercise at least 4 times a week relaxes my mind, releases tension, frustration and strengthens my body.  I ride my stationary bike for 30 minutes, lift weights or do pushups to motivate and inspire me.

Changing my diet from a regular routine of pizza, Chinese food, white rice and gravy, bagels, fried foods and chips to reducing each one of them one at a time. Approaching food in this manner helped me to create new habits of choosing healthier foods without depriving myself while on my well-being journey.  Instead of a seeing this change as a “diet”, I looked at it as a slow and steady lifestyle change. Framing within my mind in this way helped me to overcome mentality what was keeping me from achieving my permanent weight loss.

Focusing on my personal development and personal growth was and remains my way to success.  Hiring a life coach opened a new world of self-discovery and personal growth to embrace and experience. Getting the support I needed in several areas of my life and having an accountability partner to turn to for guidance, inspired motivated and helped me stay on track.

Going out of my comfort zone and starting a blog gave me the confidence to write my first book which was something I never imagined doing.

For inspiration, I turned to listening to audio recordings of spiritual music, meditation, and courses to keep moving forward as I pursued my dreams.

Be patient and enjoy the journey and dream big.  Keep doing the things you love instead of being worried and filled with fear of what might happen next.   Learn how to create success by taking simple steps that move you forward.  Focus on changing any negative attitude that may linger and push yourself to have a positive winning mindset. The effort will soon turn into a habit that will transform your life. Decide today to create change and improve your well-being by creating a life filled with happiness, success. You’ll discover the brighter side of life while having more fun living the lifestyle you desire.

Life has a funny way of causing you to grow. I’ve noticed over the years that you either get the lesson or situations will keep appearing until you do. One of the best decisions I did in my life almost eight years ago was when I was asked, “Why are you so negative”? This question was the turning point for me to realize it was time to become committed to my own personal growth. At some deep level I understood I needed to create changes within my outlook that would release my negativity so I could begin living a healthier happier life. Since then I’ve worked at becoming a better person and enjoying life more. There is still more to be done but I can say that now I’m less stressed, more fit, and feel a sense of freedom that had escaped me.  Magic happens when you get out of your own way. This path of growth hasn’t always been easy (and I have had plenty of bumps along the way) but it’s a journey well worth the effort.

If your life isn’t where you had hoped and you find yourself struggling, tell me, what would it be like for you to have your days filled with better health, more wealth, and an abundance of happiness? What would you change in order to live the life you desire? At times it can appear well beyond your reach, but you can create all these things and more by being the best you can be right now. Nothing more, your best self at this very moment, and then the next moment after that. Change can be overwhelming and I’ve found small steps get better results.

. The more you know and understand about yourself the better. Happiness is a choice, and the journey begins as a result of the decisions you make along the way. Better information will allow you to make better choices.

Taking the first steps toward creating your ideal life might seem challenging but the effort is rewarding when you do what is needed and follow through. What you will want to focus on next is the process of investing in your personal growth and overall well-being. Empower yourself by deciding within your mind and heart you will do the work now. You are past settling for what simply comes your way. Now is the time to harness your inner power. Look around and you will see many opportunities available right at your fingertips. All you have to do is grab them and they will help get you there. It’s time to put energy and effort into yourself. You are worth it! Let today be the day you invest in you.

We are all a work in progress. There is no reason to wish when you can take a proactive part in making your dreams a reality and live life to the fullest. There will be those that oppose you but don’t give up on your dreams. Practice will get you where you want to be.

Once your momentum gets going you will love seeing your progress and the benefits you’ll experience from investing in your inner growth. The best part is you don’t have to do it alone. You can find supportive people you trust and feel comfortable around to help you along the way. Make the intention and someone will appear in your life exactly at the right time.  You know the old saying “When the student is ready the teacher appears”. It’s so true! Out of the blue, when you least expect them to arrive there they are. This was my experience while on my well-being journey of self-discovery and it can happen to you too. Keep your eyes and your heart open, opportunities are everywhere.

Below are many of the important lessons I’ve learned along the way. Pick a few to focus on and share your results. Thank you for being in my community. I’m here for you.

27 Simple Tips to Improve Your Personal Growth and Well-Being.

  1. Enjoy the simple things in life.
  2. Smile more.
  3. Get enough sleep.
  4. Do something every day that excites you.
  5. Learn something new whenever possible.

  20. Take time off to refresh and relax.
  21. Get up early, when everyone is sleeping and do what you love.
  22. Appreciate what you have.
  23. Focus on what is positive.  Don’t dwell on the negative.

With all the challenges life throws our way it can be difficult at times to remember that successfully living a healthy wealthy lifestyle is well within your grasp. In order to make your desired life possible you first need to be clear on your goals by determining what you want the end result to be. Then you put in a plan of action combined with healthy food choices with a consistent workout regime to enhance your overall well-being.

Dedication will go a long way when making the required adjustments to lead you on your path to success. Decide today to create within your life the necessary time to ensure your success. Don’t allow your busy schedule to stop you from taking care of yourself.  When it’s all in your hands, why would you not put yourself in the best position to feel good, be happy, and be a high-energy vibration? Once you do so you will attract the right people into your life and who will help you create the circumstances that support your goals. Remind yourself you deserve to be successful and to live the lifestyle you desire. See if you can find a minimum of 5 minutes a day to begin the process and then build to 15-30 minutes from there. You may experience when you start making real change that it will feel like a struggle. This happens to everyone and is exactly why most people give up but remember you don’t have to do it alone. Reach out and find a friend or hire a trainer/coach to be the accountability partner you need so you can share your growth experience together.

When I started my well-being journey almost 8 years ago, I was not in good shape, didn’t take great care of myself, was in a lot of pain, couldn’t walk one-half of a block, and didn’t know how to exercise. I rarely moved my body and focused so much on work that I neglected to take care of myself.  This changed when I found a coach who shared a wealth of information and opened a new way of life that included an exercise regimen along with healthy eating. The change has been phenomenal in my overall quality of life. I’m happier now, more focused and successful than ever before.

My biggest surprise from my well-being journey is how empowering exercise can be. My favorite exercises include riding a stationary bike and lifting weights. I also love the added feeling of inner strength that comes from doing pushups. This is a far cry from how my life used to be because I now look forward to exercising instead of feeling like it’s a burden. What about you? Do you have a favorite exercise? Is your life where you want it to be? Do you feel good about yourself? Exercise is a great way to start feeling better about you and your life,  although it can sometimes be challenging and requires discipline. I found over the years that my outlook and view I had of myself improved when I put the work into making my goals a reality. When you’re ready there will be no stopping you.

Has anyone told you how awesome you are?

It is helpful when defining what living a healthy wealthy lifestyle means to you if you are clear on your vision and have a plan that will support you in achieving your goals. With this in mind, here are two questions for you to ponder…

How do you define personal success?  

        How will you know when you have achieved it?

        I will share my answers with you.

“Success is creating a healthy, wealthy, balanced, fun, inspired lifestyle, living life with love, happiness, and inner peace.

I will have achieved personal success when I feel and give love unconditionally, be fearless, gentle on myself, connected, vibrant, achieving my goals, choosing happiness, living in the spirit of love enjoying life at the moment.”

Making positive life changes helps you feel renewed, refreshed and you will find that your stress seems to float away. Start now to establish those habits that fuel your healthy wealthy lifestyle goals and give you permission to go after your personal success. Below are some additional insights to assist you along the way. 

Quick and Easy Healthy Tips How to Invest in Yourself:

1. Take one small step at a time, each small change will make a difference.

2. Bring someone into your confidence, I suggest this be a trainer/coach and share them what you are doing, tell your goals and ask them for their guidance.

3. Construct a simple routine that you will follow and fully incorporate into your life easily.

4. Write down 3 realistic goals. Be specific with a date you will complete them by. This is crucial because it also gives you a visual reminder.

7 Easy Ways to Begin Your Healthy Habits:

  1. Start your day with a healthy breakfast.
  2. Get adequate rest. Create downtime to recharge your batteries. Take breaks during the day to re-energize.
  3. Surround yourself with people who inspire and you feel good around. Positive people are supportive and uplifting and have good energy which is contagious.
  4. Drink water. Water helps detoxify the body and will increase your metabolism and improve your digestive function.  Start by drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day.
  5. For those of you, who do not have an allergy to wheat; eat whole grain bread and cereals, brown rice pasta instead of white.
  6. Eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meats.
  7. Eat fiber or protein-rich food throughout the day to maintain your energy levels and help you to feel full longer.

5 Habits To Avoid:

Avoid eating processed food full of pesticides, hormones or preservatives as much as possible.

  1. Limit white bread, pasta and starches (empty calories) having no value nourishing your body.
  2. Look at the labels to see how much salt and sugar is in the food you are buying. They are both very addictive. The more you have sugar and salt, the more you will want.
  3. Keep unhealthy junk foods away as far as possible. Avoid temptations if you can.
  4. Avoid soft drinks. Regular soda (1 can of coke) has a ton of sugar, 16 teaspoons. Diets soda has 0 calories but has artificial ingredients which are not healthy for you and will wreak havoc on your metabolism.

Improving your well-being starts with learning new habits which include healthy eating, exercising regularly and having plenty of fun along the way. As you embark on your well-being path, it will serve you well to remember that it is OK to ask others for help. We all need support and what better way to make big changes in your life than to reach out and open up to others who can help you in the process. You can do this by taking simple small steps on your journey and by finding your right balance so you can continue to feel good as you set yourself up for success. Explore and experiment until you find the right combination for you. Get started with a few easy healthy habits and when you see how good you feel you will be ready to add a few more. Start today because it’s those small victories that lead to incredible leaps of success that will ultimately create the healthy, lifestyle you desire.

Are you ready for more happiness in your life? Most people are caught up in all that can go wrong that they miss out on all the joy right in front of them. Finding mine has taken years of work and self-discovery. As I look back on my own journey what has helped me the most is in being thankful for the lessons learned and the ability to embrace each experience by being present in the moment. As it turns out this past month turned out to be one of my happiest yet. It was jam-packed with excitement, family time, personal development training, and celebrations to treasure for a lifetime. 

My adventure started with a Mother’s Day filled with fun and an array of emotions as I thought of my own mom (RIP) and everyone who may be missing their mom on such a special day. Time has helped me to heal so the day was not as sorrow filled as it has been in years past. Over time I’ve learned to focus on the good times we shared instead of being sad I’m not with my mom. Redirecting my focus has allowed me to enjoy the day by being fully present for my own family. If you’ve lost someone so special then you too know and understand how it feels. My hope is you were also able to fully enjoy your day. My day started with my husband, Neil giving me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and making me a delicious breakfast. Then my daughter gave me a certificate saying we were going to spend time together at Muse Paint bar creating a picture of flowers (we had so much fun together). Then before I could soak everything in, Neil gave me tickets to see Barry Manilow! I was so surprised and still get excited all over again just thinking about it. Barry happens to be my most favorite singer for the past 40 years and I never get tired of seeing him perform. We finished off the night with more family and had a barbecue together sharing laughs, memories, and plenty of love. It was a perfect day.  

Last month was great for my personal development as well since I was also able to attend a Retreat Weekend in Portland Oregon. It was there I had the opportunity to see my coach face to face and meet up with friends who also take part of the six-month mastermind program (a customized blend of group coaching in an environment where it is a safe place to talk openly filled with continuous learning). There was so much wisdom shared, and genuine support from one another. While spending time together, we were challenged to stretch beyond our limiting beliefs and also learned the importance of living in the moment for an optimal life experience. It was life changing and filled with many a-ha moments. Not only for myself but also for everyone within this group. A very special time I will always cherish.

After spending my alone time in Oregon it was back to New York to take part in one of the proudest moments any parent can have. My daughter, Amanda completed her Masters in Special Education with honors.  As it turned out the honors ceremony was on the first day back after I returned from my trip. Needless to say it was a busy day. That weekend we went to the graduation ceremony to celebrate her success. Neil and I are very proud of her accomplishments, and know without a doubt she will make a difference in the lives of every child she touches and will continue to be a positive influence in the years to come.

 

 Every single second is an opportunity to change your life because in any moment you can change the way you feel.” – Rhonda Byrne

Life is filled with twists and turns. Taking small actions toward what you want to achieve can create a new perspective on how you go about achieving your hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Have you or someone you’ve known ever challenged you to create goals beyond what you had imagined you could do? I know I have, and it’s made all the difference in my life! Goal setting is not rocket science but why go about it the same way over and over again? One of the best approaches I’m learning to help you succeed is to focus on improving your weaknesses so they become your strengths. You can do this by putting a plan in place that will keep things fresh and will help you feel renewed. Start by deciding that during this process of growth you are going to have fun, choose to be happy and do what your heart wants you to do. Life is short and can pass us by pretty fast so you want to take care of yourself and not spend too much time sweating the small stuff.

If you find yourself needing to pull yourself out of a funk, you can do so by changing your mindset and by shifting the language you use. It all starts with you accepting things for what they are.  Seeing life with all its ups and downs allows you to make better decisions about your plan of action. This small exercise will unlock your inner peace and is a great way to center your thoughts so you can begin finding the answers that will turn your weaknesses into new strengths, and also allow you to enjoy each day. 

When I started on my well-being journey I never imagined what an impact a change in perspective could be. The power to believe, added with simple consistent action steps has lead me to discover new strengths which had been hidden from my view.  The writing was never my strong point, math was. I didn’t even have to write a business letter in my corporate job, and my boss would put together the proposals to prospective clients so I didn’t get much practice. I do remember as a child that I did love writing letters to my teachers, friends, and family thanking them for their love and support.

As I grew life changed, I found other interests, that didn’t include writing.  A breakthrough appeared when one of my coaches gave me the assignment to write a poem. I wrote back to her expressing my apprehension with a big “Are You Kidding Me?” She wrote back and said, no she was not kidding and that I could do it. Yikes! I remember the fear and worry that filled my spirit. It was crazy that my coach had more belief I could write a poem than I did in myself. Instead of saying “I can’t” (one of my favorite answers before I started coaching), I dug deep and found the courage to move beyond my comfort zone and I started to write.  

Little did I know how much fun the process would be. It has opened up a new set of possibilities both personally and professionally. I learned when you find the courage to do something and continue to do it you gain a sense of confidence that spills over into all areas of your life. When I grow hesitant about trying something beyond my comfort zone, I do my best to remember back how fear used to fill me and how the flood of overwhelm would be so strong it would leave me paralyzed. Then I remind myself how I overcame all of that by finding the courage within myself to push through. This is something that has helped me time and time again. We all need a bit of encouragement and to help you make the shift take a moment and read my poem The Power of Inner Peace is Within Reach. My hope is you will realize all you can accomplish by changing your old way of thinking so you will explore new opportunities.

Putting myself out there in such a way was quite a challenge, especially since I knew that writing was not a strength I possessed. It was five years ago when I wrote that poem and had the courage to share on my blog. It taught me a valuable lesson in trusting myself and in the process of cultivating my untapped abilities. It goes to show you the power of how one thing can lead into another so that you can grow into who you are meant to be. Which, by the way, later on, another seed was planted by my mentor, when she said to me “you have a book in you.”  What? Writing a poem was such stretch that I laughed at the idea of writing a book. It was only with the support of my coach and working on having a positive mindset that I was able to discover that there really was a book in me when I published “Journey to Wealth”.  It took time and plenty of revisions but I’m proud to say it’s published and available on Amazon. Who knew? I didn’t, that’s for sure! Don’t doubt yourself. Your thoughts and perspective make a huge difference in what you do, Unlock the strength inside of you and take the steps needed so you can move forward today with a healthy outlook. 

How to Turn Your Weaknesses into Strengths

  1. Realize the impact of attitude on life. Raise your awareness to what your weakness might be and accept them, instead of going to the place of frustration.
  2. Ask someone you can trust for help that has done what you want to do.
  3. Start with doing one simple step. Practice to gain confidence and get better and better each day.
  4. Don’t take criticism or feedback personally. Not everyone is going to like what you do. Ask yourself what you can learn from the feedback that has been given to you.
  5. Change your thought process to think solutions. Focus on how to fix the problem, not on the obstacle. Don’t stay in a place of anger and keep focusing on what is negative, focus on what is positive
  6. Believe in Yourself. You are ready for unexpected challenges that arise. Think back to those challenges you already have handled in your life.
  7. Learn from your past mistakes, don’t beat yourself up, press on.

Start today by doing something you have never done before. The time has come for you to break through your challenges and gain a new perspective that will empower your new way of thinking. Do this by creating a plan and make it simple enough for you to follow. Revise as needed so you will stick with it. When you put in the effort to master a new skill, you will become excited again. The energy and revitalization you feel inside as you chart a new course in your life will become the foundation that will enable you to do even more. An opportunity exists at every turn. Take advantage of it. Create change in your life with small actions steps that move you closer to increased wealth and well-being.

Shifting Your Money MindsetHow much of a difference would a shift in your thinking help in making 2017 your best financial year? Would you be willing to make the change? Especially if you knew it would give you some peace of mind when it comes to your money situation. Would you be willing to do what it takes to improve your circumstances? Hopefully, you’ve answered yes. Please understand that though there are many choices there is one thing that will reap you the largest return and that is to… INVEST IN YOU!!

You can start your journey toward change by learning to separate fact from fiction and by taking responsibility for your actions as you move away from getting caught up with decisions based solely on your emotions. You need to be clear headed if you plan to actually seize the opportunities that unfold and you cannot do so if you are always in reaction mode. You must be proactive in making solid decisions based on real data not on what you ‘wish’ or ‘hope’ for. When you focus on positive thoughts you can also create goals that will inspire you to save and invest. Learn to open your mind and educate yourself by reading, asking questions, and then reading some more. Do your best to immerse yourself in understanding the areas in your life that continue to elude your grasp. Your full attention is required if you expect to master your weak spots. This is especially true when it comes to finances since so many mistakes I see people make are due to their lack of knowledge. Don’t worry, I don’t expect you to take on everything at once. You can start by reading articles from magazines, trade journals and newspapers. These sources are generally well researched and prove most helpful when you arrive at those big decisions that will impact your future.

Becoming a mathematical genius, a stock market guru, or acquiring a degree in finance is NOT necessary to become prosperous. Opportunity exists at every turn if you are prepared to take advantage of it. The journey to wealth begins with a winning mindset and an understanding that every smart decision will bring you even closer to your goals, dreams, and aspirations. When done just right this will also include those financial decisions. But you have to take the first step in changing the way you look at money and how money works within your life. If you have a mental state and belief system that supports the idea “there is not enough” then you will fully live and experience a life of scarcity. Really it’s that simple. You have to shift your money mindset if you want things to be different.

I truly believe more than anything that you can do whatever your mind sets out to do. A life free from financial worry can be yours. You just need to take action so you can create the best life possible for yourself and your family. Your future is up to you! Decide what you want, never give up, and begin now to believe in YOU no matter the circumstances. I certainly do!

It’s Labor Day, a day dedicated to those who labor, I thought I would share this video that will allow you to take full advantage of today’s theme of rest after a hard day’s work. Enjoy!

Relaxation music allows the time to be able to enjoy and become accustomed to the many benefits all driven to enhance your “well being”. If you have been following me on Twitter, then you have seen the tweet —- “Sit and be still, listen don’t do anything for five minutes. Breathe in, breathe out and follow the breaths”. So simple but what a welcomed reminder!

Take a moment for you. Be aware of the smells that surround you. Reach out, touch, listen and be grateful for who you are and all that you have. As my grandfather always said to me, ‘Bonnie, make the best of each day. Life is not perfect, challenges are always upon us, but be the best you can be.’ What a wise message for all of us to remember.

Smell the flowers that you see or imagine that are around you, and experience by reaching out to touch and feel of beauty that is deep within. You have one life to live, enjoy the moment, don’t give up, and keep your dreams alive.

Create an awesome week! ~Bonnie

Life can be so hectic. There are plenty of surprises, both good and not so good which always occur when you least expect them. My coaches have taught me that you always have a choice. Remember to choose happiness. This can be challenging sometimes; however, you need to find a way from within to calm & sooth yourself. If you are down take some time for yourself. Do something you enjoy. You can always watch an inspiring music filled video where you can dance or listen to the music. Experience how your body feels as you are uplifted & encouraged by the sounds moving through your body. Smile, breathe in and out and feel the rhythm within you. Become free.

This is one way I choose to reconnect recharge myself. This video I’m sharing with you today is one of my favorites from Marcome, who is a Canadian singer songwriter and musician. She does a mixture of pop, world music mixed with new age, jazz, and ambient voices. Marcome is a beautiful, kind, and compassionate woman, who I met on Twitter. (@Marcome)

Do you ever let your mind wander, sit, be still, and clear your thoughts? I’ve gained great pleasure sharing her beautiful videos with you. The music combined with the images are both outstanding! So relaxing by allowing you to relax and let go. Encourage yourself at every turn. You are important and YOU matter! ~Bonnie
