If you could know what's happening deep inside your body from testing a single strand of hair, would you do it? Absolutely! A few weeks ago I visited Dr. Richard Cordaro to get a hair analysis test in which a sample of a person's hair- typically from the back of the neck- is sent to a laboratory for measurement of its mineral content.
'Do you medicate or meditate?' is a question I ask clients to get them to relax about the idea of adding meditation to their lives. Meditation is anything- sitting, walking, gardening or dancing- that clears your mind and allows you to focus on a single thing or idea for an extended period of time.
You can do both- have fun and stay fit this summer in the Hamptons! I'm excited to share my health and fitness article feature in this week's Hamptons Magazine where I spill my simple secrets that make a big difference when leading a fit and healthy lifestyle. Hope you enjoy it!
Last year I gave my self permission to try a new way to cleanse and heal the body with what I call 'Reiki + Shamanic' colonic. Being a Taurus, stubborn and hard headed, it took me a while to get comfortable with the idea but I'm glad I did. In a nutshell, this 90 minute long session helped me release and detach from old, tired and heavy ideas (reiki) as well as foods, toxins and junk that was clogging up my body and immune system.
When it comes to training for strength, I believe that the best way to shape a muscle is to 'stretch it before you flex it'. This 'stretch within a strength' technique is very effective at recruiting more lean muscle as well as giving the body a long, lean and balanced shape.
Teaching clients how to have great form while exercising is what I do best. To me, having great posture and form while working out is the key to connecting with your body as one. It is also a great way to progress the move without adding extra weight or resistance.
I believe that a fit mind gives you a fit body because we are constantly facing challenges like finding time to eat right and exercise. And we must be mentally fit to make all the right choices.
This week I took Carol through a basic but effective exercise routine that can be done everyday and anywhere including the office. Don’t have time to exercise before or after work? Now there are no more excuses- I will show you some of the same moves I showed Carol so you can stay consistent and motivated to stay fit this summer. Let’s get going!
