Does Your Life Need A Boost?
By Marge Pickering-Picone
“How you do anything is how you do everything!” That was a statement by T. Harv Eker who inspired me in a seminar I attended several years back. That quote popped up in my head several times in the past few months while hearing excuses or avoidance statements from those needing to make improvements in their lives. This statement can be applied to many situations, however let’s relate this first to the success or failure of our personal weight loss programs.
If you are dieting, that one drink, that one piece of cake or one ear of corn, can set your weight loss back by days, weeks or stop it all together. Many wonder if we cheat a little bit today on our eating habits, does that mean it caused us to fail at properly taking care of our health or diet? Bluntly, the answer is yes, because it rarely happens just once. We say it is only a “little bit” here and a “little bit” there, but when this happens every day it definitely starts to add up. We work so hard at accomplishing something in between those “little bits” that we ultimately get angry with the outcome when we are not meeting our expectations. Ultimately, blaming whatever is on the other side of our finger pointing: the product, the company, the therapist, the teacher, the parent, the store; as long as it is anything or anybody but us.
“How you do anything is how you do everything,” can also be applied to other aspects of our lives, such as: relationships, careers, friendships, workout programs, etc. If you consistently whine and keep avoiding the things you need to address, you will keep replicating the same behavior over and over. If you skip practice, will it really matter? If you don’t call family members, they’ll get over it, right? One day you realize how disappointed you are in some of your life choices, but people that know you don’t think anything of it. They know you to skirt over or not complete your tasks properly or arrive on time, etc. I am here to tell you that You CAN change how you do things by taking the first step. How you do everything can only be changed by you!
If you are trying to create a new habit of any kind, you need at least 17 days to consistently repeat the cycle over and over to cement it into your brain. Once you do, it becomes part of your day, way of life or that one more step closer to the goal to achieve the success you are striving for.
I have had several clients call recently about needing to get back on track with their supplement programs. They felt a little embarrassed that they have been slacking. I asked if they noticed the slacking in other areas of their lives too? The answer was astoundingly YES! That is why they were calling to re-ignite their programs as they need and want to be excited and productive in all the other areas of their lives. They realized that when they are wiped out, nothing gets accomplished. They have no patience or tolerance for their work, children, chores or even attending fun functions. Life is becoming a “Chore.”
If it is time for you to get back on track, call for an appointment. We will try to accommodate your time schedule so you don’t miss out on any more goals, fun with family or friend gatherings. Get those summer chores done by enhancing your energy and eating properly. If you could use coaching, we have that too! Remember, “How you do anything is how you do everything”.

The Use of Acupressure for Stress Reduction
Our emotional responses constantly struggle to find balance. Unfortunately our body’s intricate stress response is easily put off its course. Instead of being bothered by an insult or upset, we can become deeply aggravated causing an increase in the levels of cortisol within the body and creating an imbalance. One way to help relieve your stress is through Acupressure.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually apply pressure on healing points, which help to stimulate the body’s natural self-healing abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. Acupressure is effective in the relief of many stress-related ailments and is ideal for preventive healthcare and boosting the immune system. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain and promotes vibrant health. Acupressure uses the same pressure points and meridians as Acupuncture, but does not use needles; Acupressure uses gentle firm finger pressure. When the acupressure points are stimulated they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body’s energy to aid in healing. Acupressure is highly effective for relieving muscular tension as well as healing emotional pain. Daily emotional stress causes the body to shut down, causing blockages within the internal flow of energy, which results in physical ailments and emotional imbalances. Acupressure techniques help release muscular tension, open blockages and restore the flow of the body’s energy, thus reducing stress.
The Benefits of Acupressure:
- There are no needles
- Complementary to Western medicine
- No negative side effects
- Helps free and release blocked energy
- Rebalances the body to a natural state of health
- Boots the immune system
- Aids in detoxing the body
- Promotes circulation of blood
- Aids in the body’s ability to self-heal
