Plan the event and work it! Tried and true recommendations that have worked for years for One-to-One clients to not just maintain their weight during holiday seasonal eating but to actually lose weight from November to January 1.

Pathway to Health and Happiness

When I begin a partnership with a One-to-One Wellness Coaching client, as a trained wellness coach I ask a lot of questions. Rarely do I ask a "why" question because oftentimes the answers come from the past and we happen to be in the present and moving forward. Instead, I ask a lot of "what" questions. Some of these questions follow:

1. What accomplishments or events must, in your opinion, occur during your lifetime to consider your life satisfying and well-lived?

2. What is your secret passion in your life? Something you may or may not have allowed yourself to do so far, but which you would really love to do.

3. What unique gift or knowledge do you have to contribute?

By pausing to answer these types of questions of ourselves, we begin to "see our path" and have a clearer sense of what we wish to do with our lives rather than just why.

Enjoy the process - more questions to come!

Injury and Recovery Series: Cartilage Regeneration

Injury and Recovery Series: Cartilage Regeneration

We should continue to be aware of the progress of regenerative rather than reparative "fixes" for our bodies. Amazing what is becoming available compared to a few years ago! The goal of course is to not get to the place where this is necessary. So if you are feeling discomfort or pain in your body, don't wait until it becomes chronic and causes serious damage. Instead, contact One-to-One and let's partner for your health and happiness.

Wonderful information for this upcoming Holiday season of plentiful food. Focus on gratefulness, family, and friends rather than the food.
Also focus on maintaining weight during the holidays rather than losing weight (if you need to). This way you will have "succeeded" since many Americans pack on pounds during November and December. Then call One-to-One to achieve additional success at the first of the year and be on the lookout for our Quick Start 2012 packages available soon for those living in the Fort Wayne, Indiana, New Haven, Indiana, and surrounding communities.

How Does Stress Affect My Body and Quality of Life?

"The issues are in the tissues" is an expression I heard long ago. It is only with the current research and partnering with client's for their Corrective Exercise programs and behavioral Wellness Coaching for positive lifestyle change that I now fully understand what this expression means.
Thomas Hanna, PhD, who created Hanna Somatic Education, taught that the neuromuscular system has two basic responses to stress. He called these responses the "red-light reflex" and the "green-light reflex." The red-light reflex, also known as the startle response, is the sustained adaptation of the neuromuscular system to negative stress. For example, if you feel threatened, your body draws inward to protect itself from the stressor. You tighten your abdominals, round your shoulders forward, clench your jaw, narrow your eyes and push your head forward. It's as if you had just been punched in the stomach. The red-light reflex contracts the spinal flexors.
In contrast, the green-light reflex contracts the spinal extensors. It is responsible for readying the body and preparing it for action. An example would be a soldier standing as tall as possible, ready to respond to a challenge.
It is important to be aware of these instinctual responses as they create pain and dysfunction in the body. It also demonstrates the need to incorporate stress reduction practices with One-to-One Wellness Coaching into a Corrective Exercise program for clients.
Please remember, stress is not just an adult experience - children experience it as well. They, too, are candidates for One-to-One programming and will benefit greatly. The One-to-One
studio is convenient for clients living in Fort Wayne, Indiana or New Haven, Indiana and surrounding cities as well.
Begin this day with awareness of your breathing, and observing your thoughts, return your mind to your breathing. You will have taken a step toward happiness and reduced the stress in your mind, body and spirit.
Be well!

Thank you to Justin Price of the BioMechanics in San Diego, California for his description of Thomas Hanna's work which appeared in the January 2008 IDEA Fitness Journal.
