The Great Balancing Act

Talk about the benefits of breathing, meditation, and how mindfulness can help you see problems through a new lens. Not only are breathing exercises great for your mental health and overall happiness; they can improve your physical well-being as well.

But what’s the ultimate goal of working these healthy habits into your daily routine? Why choose this route over, say, indulging in a few glasses of wine after a tough day or taking out your frustration on a punching bag? The answer: balance.

By creating balance in your body, you can improve natural functions, optimize healing, and focus your energy on positive thoughts and actions that lead to long-term wellness.

The Breath Of Life

Everything I practice comes from real-world experience. In my line of work, people are going through hardship. So, I need to be able to deal with their stress and mine on a daily basis. Breathing and meditating helps me calm down. 

Once you make it a habit, this calm can extend past that one moment. You can begin making things happen. You’ve become strong enough to turn the brain chatter on and off.

Making Healthy Choices Doesn't Have To Be Stressful

Some stresses in life we can’t avoid. Sometimes, we will be stuck in traffic or be forced to deal with toxic people—but why add extra, unnecessary stress? If we can steer clear of the extra stresses, we will be healthier and happier. 

It is my suggestion that people evaluate their own lives, pinpoint what causes their stress and initiate solutions in order to relieve anxiety which will lead to an overall happy and healthier life. Here’s to staying happy, healthy, and stress-free!.

When You Do the Math - Dieting Can be as Easy as 1-2-3!

A lot of us get hung up on weight loss. We spend years and years trying different diets, tactics, and vitamins and psyche ourselves out when we don’t see results. But oftentimes we overthink things and just get stuck trying to change too much of our lives.

When it comes down to it, weight loss is a matter of adjusting your eating habits. That’s it! You don’t have to change your entire life in the process. When you think of it as a simple math equation, you can start to see the process in a more positive way.

Establishing A New Health Standard

You can eat a salad for lunch and feel like you’re doing the right thing, but then you throw in processed chicken, turkey, or tuna and top it off with 700 calories of dressing, and that skews results. Sure, the salad was a good idea, and you may feel better because you think you’re eating well, but it won’t help you reach your desired health or weight any faster.

The paradigm needs shifting. The problem is that many people want to make healthy decisions, but they aren’t equipped with the knowledge to do so. As consumers, we can try to educate ourselves, but there also needs to be someone to help us make decisions. What do you base your purchases on?

Debt and How It Can Affect Your Health

Why do people get sick? A poor diet, lack of exercise, or underlying health problems are all likely causes. Stress can be devastating to your health, too. And what is one of the most prevalent sources of stress? 

I spent the past twelve years helping people with severe debt - more debt than most people can imagine. My clients would come to me when they had exhausted all their options. My goal was to solve their financial difficulties. But I quickly found that in order to do so, I needed to snap them out of a deep, self-destructive funk. If I did not, they would just get sicker, and would not be able to help themselves.

Debt, Sickness, and the Power of Listening

In my 12 years helping people get clear of debt, I met a lot of people with problems. Money problems, of course, but also pent-up worries that affected their health and happiness—trouble in their marriage, turbulence with their kids, and so forth. As I talked to them, looking for a way to solve their financial worries, I learned a skill that has been incredibly powerful in my mission to help people ever since. I learned to listen.

The importance of Proper Posture in Judaism

Every morning, I thank Gd for giving me the ability to stand up straight. Standing is an essential part of Jewish prayer, as is our posture. During special prayers like the Amidah, or "standing prayer," we position ourselves as if we were standing before Gd, with straight backs and tucked chins. We don't keep our hands on our hips or cross our arms, but stand straight and humble. At the times where we are required to bow, we bow enough to separate the vertebrae from one another. While proper posture is an important part of our devotion, it is also extremely beneficial to our overall health and it allows us to better serve Gd , our family, and our community.
