Synergy Success E-Zine, May 2012  


"One's health can be judged by which he takes two at a time

  ...pills or stairs." ~Ashley Berberich



Greetings to YOU and a Warm Spring Welcome to our community of high-achieving women

who want to turn Stress into Strength at every opportunity! 


ATTENTION: If you're a service-committed professional, heart-centered business owner, leader, mother, busy woman, or "Type-A" personality, This one's for YOU!


As "Mission-driven Women" who tend to burn the candle at both ends, the #1 factor in creating and sustaining Balanced Success (so we can burn brightly without burning out) is taking full responsibility for the care and maintenance of our irreplaceable bodies.  Too often we take our health for granted, paying attention only after getting ill, or pushing ourselves so hard  for so long that it's exhausting to even think about getting up off the couch.


I believe more than mind-set, more than knowledge or skills, and more than any other resource (even money) it's exceptional self-care, or lack of, that will determine whether or not we are happy, healthy, and fulfilled while achieving our goals.


While most of us take great care in the Spring Cleaning efforts outside ourselves, (fertilizing flowerbeds, planting vegetable gardens, washing patios, purging winter clothes, organizing closets and making our homes sparkle and shine),  too few of us realize that our Spring Cleaning efforts aren't complete until we've done some Spring Cleaning to restore the radiance inside ourselves. 


It's time for an honest self-check:  Do you have low energy, a few extra pounds, bags or dark circles under your eyes, food cravings, headaches, fatigue, mood swings, poor concentration during the day or trouble sleeping at night?  If so, you're not alone.  Many of us desire to look, feel, and perform better, yet we feel strapped for time and energy, stuck in a cycle of using stress hormones, sugar and caffeine to get by.  Some of us are on the edge of adrenal exhaustion or perhaps burnout.  I know because I've been there.      


Ready for a Fresh Start?  Want to get energized, radiant, & ready for summer fun with a small group of amazing women, be sure to grab your spot in the "Fit for Summer" 24-Day Challenge I've created just for you!  Come hear how Advocare has helped to uplevel my energy over the last 6 months, as well as improved the health of our whole family.


Join me on May 16th at The Gathering Place for the Kick-off meeting, Nutrition Tips and Product Seminar.  Enjoy sampling Delicious Spring Salads (I'm making a few personal favorites that nourish your adrenals) including recipes you can use at home.  You'll leave with proven tools, detailed instructions, great new friends, and your 24-Day Challenge bundle ordered and your questions answered.


If you've tried in the past to get on track and stay there all on your own, be assured you will not fail here.  Not on my watch.  No, not this time!  You'll each have Private calls with me to answer your questions and concerns.  


Perhaps we'll cross paths this week at the Synergy Success Circle? or maybe at SOAR For those of you who are up for a challenge, I'll see you on May 16th Until then, I wish you well. 


Here's to taking back our Health, Confidence, and Energy...Together!

High-Energy Health Tips
  1. Think RAINBOW when you're planning a meal.
  2.  If a label has more than 10 ingredients & you can't pronounce half of them, put it back on the shelf!
  3. Shop the outside aisles of the grocery store, that's where the whole, fresh foods are.
  4. Top 10 High-Energy Foods:  Blueberries, Organic Eggs, Sea Vegetables, Sweet Potatoes, Wild Salmon, Kale, Cranberry juice, Garlic, Oatmeal, and Cinnamon.
  5. Get 8 hrs of Restorative Sleep...Limit Alcohol and Simple Carbohydrates before bed.
  6. Consume less sugar, white flour products and processed junk foods, which stress your body & deplete energy.
  7. Stress Less: When stressed, your body produces excess Cortisol which stores fat and interferes with hormone balance. 
  8. Build Resiliency so you can Respond, not React, and bounce-back quickly in the face of challenges.
  9. Clear your Clutter and Minimize your to-do list by Learning to say NO when overwhelmed.
  10. Surround yourself with Positive People! Enough said.

**BONUS: Drink Water!  At least 1/2 your body weight in ounces, every day.  We have no storage system for water, and need to replenish our water stores daily.
