Accept Yourself Fully, Without Judgement

1) You've recognized something needs to change. 2) You've figured out what that something is. 3) Where do you go from here? Accept yourself fully, without judgement. Inner turmoil arises when we judge what we need (fulfillment), because it’s not what we want (judgement).

Coming Out Isn’t Binary (Sexuality or Otherwise)

I posted a short video where I expressed that we can come out about things beyond sexuality. You can watch here if you missed it. A client responded to it saying that they agreed, but that coming out isn’t binary. I think that’s correct. And goes for sexuality or otherwise. It’s not as simple as gay or straight. Wanting to…

When Shifting Your Mindset Doesn’t Work

If this mindset shift thing is so simple, why doesn't it always work? Because you won't let it. You have to let go of the old belief, to fully embody the new one. Unlearn what is no longer serving, get out of your own way, and embrace what will serve you better!

How to Shift Your Mindset

Once you recognize that you have a belief that is limiting your progress, how do you go about changing it? You create a confirmation bias. Focus on what you want, not what you don't want. Once you understand this mechanism of actively change your filters, you can be strategic about it.

Have You Tapped Into Your Truth, Mission, & Power?

It’s been rapid growth for me since I began my inward journey of self-discovery, waking up to my truth about who I am and what I ultimately want out of life. Investigating my internal operating system, working through what's blocking my potential, and taking action on living an intentional life. I think that this “water dam effect” (rapid growth) occurred because…

Sustainable Habit Change

Have you ever seen someone take on a new dietary or lifestyle change, only to go back to their old ways after a few days? I see this a lot in January with New Year's resolutions. People jump right into a 6 day per week exercise routine after not working out for the past year. Most will find themselves exhausted…

Digest.. Emotions?

As you know, holistic health is much, much more than the physiological components: sleep, nutrition, exercise. As I learn and grow on my own wellness journey, I am recognizing that the psychological components, are a lot more mechanical, and less elusive than I used to think. My goal with Life Meets Health is to take what is portrayed as the ultra-complicated,…

But WHY Are You Doing It?

The basis of Life Meets Health is to #MakeHealthyYourNewNormal. In the beginning, there is a lot of “because Coach Erica says so.” I tell you want to do initially to begin to lay a solid foundation of physical health through prioritizing sleep, sound nutrition, and adequate exercise. Once inflammation starts to go down as you are giving your body what…

What’s With Allergens?

I’ve talked about inflammation, and how harmful it is, inhibiting our ability’s to thrive. If you want to work towards decreasing inflammation and jump on the anti-inflammatory train, simply start to eat more real food like well sourced meats, healthy fats, and lots of produce. As you eat more of the good stuff, you’ll naturally start to crowd out the…

Nutrition is the Gateway Drug Part ll

As you’ve heard me speak about in my last post, living a healthy lifestyle is not exclusively about physical health, although it is top priority. We need to get enough high-quality sleep, not nightly doses of Z-Quil. We need healthy nutrition consisting of balanced meals, made up of real food. We need to move daily, and strength train regularly. There…

Nutrition is the Gateway Drug

The reason that I chose to pursue the health coaching path vs. the nutritionist one, is because living a healthy lifestyle is not all about food, it just starts with food. When it comes to living a holistic and healthy lifestyle, nutrition is just one aspect of it, albeit it’s a huge one. When I start working with a client,…
