Let's talk about Why New Years Resolutions Don't Work
In most cases we set goals without having a real plan only because we think we're supposed to. It's the New Year and we heard we're supposed to set goals, so we don't but don't exactly know how.
We need to start with achievable goals first and build a sustainable plan that will last, instead of jumping in with two feet having no idea why or what we're doing.
Working together is important, even if you're used to doing these things on your own. There's a reason this hasn't worked in the past, most likely because you've tried to do it on your own.
Find a community, find a support group and you'll quickly find out how important it is.
Consider other goals as well. In most cases people only set wellness goals, but what about financial for example, what about adventure. Do something you're not used to, think outside the box and you'll be all the better for it!

Even though the holidays is supposed to be the most joyous time of year, it can certainly be the most stressful. So we put together a check list for you to follow, to help you keep your stress levels low at this time of year.
Exercise is the #1 way to reduce stress!
Unfortunately it seems as though exercise is the first to go when we're stressed out. Do yourself a favour, get to exercising to prevent too much stress, and when that stress arrives, don't miss out on any of your workouts.
This is another great way to reduce stress. There are many different ways to practice breathing. The easiest one is, breathe in for a count of 5, hold for a count of 5 and breathe out for a count of 5.
Try this cycle 10 times around and watch that stress melt away!
Reduce Alcohol Consumption
Easier said than done especially during the holidays. We're not saying don't drink at all. What we're saying is, you don't have to over indulge every night. You don't have to have an alcoholic beverage every time you watch a movie, wrap presents (or open them ;)), or every time you visit family.
Many people don't know alcohol contributes to stress, anxiety and depression. So skip the booze blues this year and try a different type of beverage.
Create Healthy Habits
More people than we know create unhealthy habits at this time of year. So why not flip the script and start creating healthy habits. It'll make starting out in the New Year that much easier!
Create healthy habits like some of the exercises on this list to reduce your holiday stress.
Add quality foods to your diet
I know that we'd rather not think about better nutrition at this time of the year. We want the appetizers and pie's and drinks. But we should really consider adding quality foods to our diet.
Quality foods will help reduce stress, they will help heal your body and they'll even put you in a better mood, especially when things are a bit more stressful during the holidays.

On this episode of Exploring Mind and Body we're going to talk about Self Care During the Holidays.
Self care during the holidays is so important. In fact it could be the most important time of the year.
We have appetizers, and family and finances, all in which could stress us out. So we have to continue to take care of ourselves especially at the most stressful time of year.
A. Believe that you're worth it
Believe that you're worth it because you are. You deserve to be strong and healthy all year long, especially at this time of year!
We love affirmations as constant reminders of who are, and or who you want to become. Help yourself have that belief in yourself by continually reminding yourself using affirmations.
C. Make a plan
If you fail to plan you plan to fail. Have a workout plan, have a nutrition plan, take all the thinking out of it. Make sure you have a plan that you can stick to and find a professional to do it for you if you're not sure how.
D. Make yourself a priority
Remember that you deserve this. So make yourself a priority. We make everyone else in our lives a priority and we put ourselves last. Put yourself at the top of the list and you'll have more to give.
E. Make time for yourself
We all have the same hours in the day, it's not that we don't have time, it's more so that we don't make the time it takes to get our workouts in, or to meal plan and prep.
Make that time because you deserve it!

Choosing Better Ingredients is a way of life, it really is. Choose better quality isn't just about ingredients, it's what you choose on a regular basis.
Let's take ingredients first. The better ingredients you put in your body, the better your body will feel, the better your body feels the more confidence you'll have. And the more confidence you have the better you'll be able to perform your day to day tasks.
Consider feeling energized, having mental clarity; how about being in more control of your mood and emotions.
It all starts with choosing better, for your body, for your life.
If you choose better quality ingredients, you tend to make better choices in your life.
Choose better to whom you hang out with, choose better to what you do with your personal time, choose a better environment.
It's a way of life, choose better because you deserve it.

Fermented foods is without question, one of the best ways to improve digestion.
Some of my favourite fermented foods include: Kombucha, Sauerkraut, Kimchi and Miso.
I choose to make homemade kombucha but there is some great local businesses that produce their own, which in my opinion would be better than a mass produced product.
If you are purchasing Sauerkraut make sure it's raw and needs to be stored in the fridge.
Kimchi is my favourite of all of these and again I choose to make my own. Pay attention to the store bought kimchi products, many are packed with toxins that won't do your digestive system any good.
And last on my list is Soy products. In most cases I choose to avoid soy. Unless they are fermented. You can find health benefits from both Miso and Tempeh.
All the best in your search for improving your digestion!

It's so important to have an attitude of gratitude. Might sound cliche to some, but show your appreciation on a regular basis for the smallest things will change your entire mindset and outlook on the day.
Try waking up in the morning and thinking of just a few things that you're grateful for. It doesn't matter how small; doing this for a few days and then a few weeks you'll quickly find out how powerful our mind is.
Before long your mind will start to be attracted to positive things in your life. When you're focused on the positive instead of the negative, more things start to open it's arms to you.
You'll find yourself in better relationships, a healthier environment; you'll create more abundance in your life.
All by starting with an attitude of gratitude. Stop complaining, avoid those people that are always in that mind frame, create your own positivity and let the rest take over.

It's so important to understand what we put on our body ultimately goes in our bodies.
Our skin is our biggest organ and we need to treat it right. The problem is, no one wants to hear this information.
Who wants to spend extra money on products, and have to read all the ingredients each time you buy.
Not many, I mean I certainly don't. But it's necessary to know exactly what goes in your body, what it does to your body and it's affecting our health.
In this show I talk about a few things we should stay away from when it comes to cosmetics or the toxins in your bathroom.
I hope you enjoy the show and I hope it's eye opening to some.
You can find more details in my book called Detoxify Yourself which is what I'm referencing throughout this show.

My name is Caroline Collins, some may call me CC, and I originally am from the countryside of western Massachusetts.
After being physically attacked and fearing my life 10 years ago, I realized I knew nothing about how to use my body to protect myself. I sought after a martial art and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu found me. After completing my Master’s in Science Education, I moved out to California from Massachusetts to train with the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor and world champion athlete, Cobrinha, and simultaneously start my career in my other passion: nutrition science education. My aim was to teach people how to live healthier and happier in their bodies through conscious existence and natural nutrition.
After five years of teaching, serving as a teaching fellow for the National Science Foundation, I left my job as the science department chair in LAUSD, to train and compete Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu full-time and to start a health food business that provides natural nutrition to athletes. That small business brought me to larger current business and the full-time athletic pursuit brought me to now, teaching fitness through applied, scientific, and strategic knowledge. I also design and create nutrition programs for clients, with various needs and lifestyles.
My goal is for my clients to feel beautiful and look beautiful with confidence, strength, and technique.
Along with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I have been training Capoeira for 6 years, an Afro-Brazilian Martial Arts. I also have trained Yoga for 17 years, Snowboarding for over 20 years, and just overall athlete.

May times we don't consider what our personal environment is like. We don't consider cleaning it up, or we don't think about why our life feels like it's a disaster.

Matt’s passion for enlightening others came out of his own experience with health issues as a child. Since suffering from health issues as a child, he has since tested many allopathic drugs, “alternative” treatments, and diets, ultimately coming to find that the science of mitochondrial medicine is the first to have clearly proven that the cause of all “chronic” disease is mitochondrial dysfunction, the first cause of which is artificial light frequencies altering biologic cycles.
He is currently focused on research in the field of photobiology, the scientific study of the beneficial and harmful interactions of light on living organisms.

I'm an award-winning author, speaker, teacher, technologist, and feminist. My long-time practice of meditation and mindfulness informs my view of the mixed-up roles of men and women.
There are many paths to transformation and change. One of the most critical changes is for people who identify as females to understand and live their vast, core power. People who identify as men must reawaken and revive their innate ability to imbue profound, resonant love into their lives and world. I teach meditation and mindfulness to help people log into these core qualities.
I’ve authored three books:
- The Power of the Loving Man (to be released on March 17, 2020)
- American Buddhist Rebel: The Story of Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz (winner of four literary awards; U.S. Best Books--2, The Eric Hoffer Award, and the Benjamin Franklin Award)
Additional book and audiobook projects are underway. Through my company, Skye Pearl, I focus on creating truthful and powerful global communications through various forms of media.
I especially want to reach out to:
- Women and men who desire to learn more about meditation,
- Parents who want to raise sons who respect women and girls who respect themselves, and
- Young, college-age women who are ready to come in to and claim their power.
I am a Director of The Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism. I lead the grant category titled “Women in Buddhism.” Over the past decade, we’ve awarded grants to over 150 Buddhist organizations, most of whom are involved in social movements including teaching meditation and mindfulness at schools, prisons, military veteran facilities, homeless shelters, hospitals, city streets, and youth organizations.
I began my career as a freelance journalist and soon segued into Hollywood public relations, landing A-list clients in a number of entertainment sectors. Intrigued by the field of computer science, I left public relations in the 90s to take in-depth training in computer science. I was soon managing multi-million dollar IT projects for top Wall Street firms. Throughout my working life, I have taught and practiced meditation and mindfulness and observed first-hand the urgent need for upending gender norms to achieve world balance.

My name is Kyle Flynn, I am the Owner of The Blueprint LA which is a Group Training Facility built on Culture, Community and Connection. I was born and raised in the City of Torrance and am the middle child of 3 boys. Growing up I participated in every sport under the sun and loved to compete. I was never a good student so I focused my energy on sports, being active and escaping from the classroom.
When I was in High School I excelled in Football and ended up earning a Scholarship to the University of Arizona State to play for the Sun Devils. Unfortunately, I found myself in some trouble and ended up going to LA Harbor College to play Football at the Junior College level. After a year and a half at Harbor College I was able to earn a scholarship to play Football at San Jose State University to play for the Spartans.
My Training Career started after I was finished in San Jose and moved home. I came home and was dead broke, found a local gym and asked if I could start training there. At the time I was living out of a 1983 Chevy Blazer and didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. I spent many nights sleeping in my car and eating off the Taco Bell Dollar Menu with the Tip money I earned from giving away Free Personal Training sessions to get my name out into the Community.
I slowly caught some momentum and started to realize more and more that my purpose in life was to empower other people and connect them to their passion and purpose through fitness. I grew my Personal Training business into a group training business over the course of 3 years and decided it was a good idea to open up a Training Facility. In 2015 The Blueprint LA was established and I was officially a business owner with zero plan, zero experience and zero guidance. It was the best decision I have ever made.
We struggled tremendously our first 2 years and I contemplated closing our doors because we only had 7 members and I was losing a lot of money every month. Instead of throwing in the towel I decided to buy out my partner and go all in. Second best decision I have made.
Over the past 3 years we have transformed hundreds of peoples lives and provided this community with a sanctuary of Empowerment, Passion and Positivity. Over the past year we have expanded from 3000 to 9000sq ft and are training a community of 350 people. I am planning to start hosting workshops for Gym Owners/Trainers that are looking to get in this space that need a guide. During my years of struggle it wasn't until I reached out for help that I saw the light.

The 4 Agreements is one of my favourite books. It offers incredibly life lessons that we could all use to live by that will without question improve our quality of life.
In this episode Drew shares his perspective on each agreement and how they've changed his life for the better in different ways.
Starting with the first agreement: Be Impeccable with your word. It's just want you say but what you think about yourself and others.
Agreement number 2: Don't take anything personally. A difficult task without question but one that can be improved on over time and practice.
The Third agreement is, don't make any assumption. We have no idea what other people are going through in their lives. It's always a good idea to avoid making assumptions.
And finally the fourth agreement: Always do your best. Without question, how you do one thing is how you do everything. So strive to do your best no matter what it is that you're doing.

Mark is a Boston marathon qualifier, New York marathon qualifier and Abbott World Marathon Majors Six Star finisher. Mark has completed over twenty-five marathons on four continents.
Coaching History & Philosophy
In 2016, TEAM PAWS, a national charity selected Mark as their training coach overseeing their 550 plus marathon athletes nationwide for the Chicago and New York City Marathons.
Mark goal over the course of his running career has been to inspire other athletes. He believes training is 30% percent physical and 70% percent mental. It is his job to define the objective of his athletes, analyze their results and provide constructive feedback.
As a coach, he provides the athlete with this expertise by explaining the “why” with the goal of empowering the athlete to train optimally. He tries to instill the power of belief, so when his athletes are truly tested, they believe in their ability to accomplish their goal. Mark believes this approach will sustain them in their darkest moments when they want to quit, but won’t!

There is a proven and repeatable path to success and in this show that's exactly what Drew teaches you how to do. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. You don't have to start from scratch, if there's something you want to achieve someone has done it before or someone has done something similar in another industry.
All you have to do is follow the path to success that is clearly paved for you. In this show we'll go over just a few simple steps to help you get there.
For example the very first thing you need to do is decide what it is you want. Sounds too simply, no? The fact is, you won't be able to follow any other steps if you don't have the first one down.
After you decide you come up with a plan, after the plan you find an accountability partner, mentor and or coach.
From there we need to follow the path, stick with the plan and what may be the most challenging, we need patience. We need to give our plan time to develop which almost always takes longer than expected.

Ariel Garten is probably one of the most interesting people you will meet. She is a Neuroscientist, psychotherapist, mom, former fashion designer, and the female founder and visionary of an amazing and highly successful tech start-up Muse.
Muse tracks your brain during meditation to give you real-time feedback on your meditation, guiding you into the "zone" and solving the problem most of us have when starting a meditation practice- letting you know when you are doing it right.
When she is not reading brains (literally) or investing in, inspiring and advising other start-ups and women in biz, you can find her on stages across the world, from TED to MIT to SXSW, inspiring people to understand that they can accomplish anything they want by learning what goes on in their own mind.
Ariel is also the co-host of the Untangle Podcast.

Dr. Trent Mozingo grew up on a small farm in Southeastern Indiana where he learned the hard work that goes into raising food from the ground up. With a large garden, farm-raised beef, pork, and chicken eggs, his family always had home-cooked meals that were raised on the farm.
Growing up, Dr. Mozingo never knew the value of his childhood education until he began his pursuit of becoming a chiropractor at Palmer College of Chiropractic. There he learned how the human body works, and he applied his childhood education to understand how food plays an important role in keeping the body working at its best.
Dr. Mozingo wrote his first book, The Weight Is Over, to help people understand the inner-workings of the human body and to help them take control of their own health. With great detail and reader-friendly analogies, The Weight Is Over takes the reader on a journey to build an understanding of how their health came apart, and how they can put it back together.
