Day 5 of 31 Days Blog Challenge: What are you reading?

photodune-1091994

For My Reading Pleasure

I am not a big romance novel reader like most women and I like my sci-fi in the movies. My reading is all over the place though. The inner nerd in me loves books on holistic health, wellness, diet, nutrition, herbs, essential oils, crystals, and all things new age. At any given day, I could have four books that I am reading sitting on the bed. Well maybe not READING but more like skimming through the good parts. For example, today I have open, the Tarot and Astrology book by Corrine Kenner.

Tarot And Astrology by Corrine KennerMy current study situation is on tarot and astrology. This book fascinates me because it combines my two loves of tarot and astrology for an enchanting read . There is a lot of meaning in tarot cards to do an in-depth reading and to add astrology gives the reading a much deeper narrative. While having that book open, I am also reading The Essential Oils Hormone Book by Dr.Mariza Snyder. Random I know. Many of my women clients, and self included, suffer from hormonal issues. When carefully blended The Essential Oils Hormone Solutionand applied properly, essential oils can promote balance to hormone imbalances. I have been using essential oils since 2005 and live by them. Another book that is on my bed is The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer. This book was one of our recommended readings for my life coaching certification. I reference this book often when coaching clients and for a pick me up for myself. The last book that I am reading and reference often is Diet and Nutrition; A Holistic Approach by Rudolph Ballentine. It’s an older book and was also a recommended reading book for a nutrition certification that I took several years back. Diet and nutrition are essential to life. People need to understand the fundamentals of it. 

Die and Nutrition; A Holistic Approach by Rudolph Ballentine, MDWhat I find particularly captivating about this book is how it examines the effects of food and eating habits on the mind and emotions. What seems like a purposeless reading list to some, is a gold mine to me. My reading selection reinforces the holistic health and wellness work that I do so that I stay sharp and on my game when assisting my clients to be the best that they can be.

Day 4 of 31 Days Blog Challenge: My Day In The Life of NUBODI

A Day In The Life

I’ve seen blogs where people talked about what their day was like as an entrepreneur and thought I would share my day as well. When I left Corporate America to become self-employed, I thought my days of getting up at the crack of dawn were over. I was wrong.

NUBODI At Work
A Day In The Life

Most days began at 6 AM when I enter the gym. I hit the treadmill for about 30 minutes and then pound out the weights for another 30 minutes then another 15 to 20 minutes grilling my abs. After a good workout, it’s off to the showers and get slayed. By this time, it should be around 7 ish. Now to cake on my face. If anyone knows me, they know them eyebrows give me drama EVERYDAY and take most of my beauty time.

Dressed and ready for the day, I head over to Starbucks for my green tea, Trenté berry water, bagel and fruit. I handle my business out of one of four places because I am not that disciplined to work in the house to actually get work done. Starbucks, Panera, Wegmans and the library are all on my route for mobile offices. Once I decide on location, then I get crackin on NUBODI business. Well, I have to read the news first while I eat breakfast and drink my tea, THEN I get crackin.

On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I do client work such as face to face consultations or SKYPE/ZOOM consults and coaching. If no clients are scheduled, I catch up on the administrative work. On Tuesdays and  Thursdays are product days. I am filling orders and whippin up products. Saturdays are for local deliveries and post office runs. Sundays are for scheduling my calendars, brainstorming and relaxing.

During the evenings I try to hit the gym again around 6 pm to get some cardio and ab work in. If an evening work out is not possible, at least I got my morning routine in. I hope to be able to scale back some of my day after things normalize but for now this is how NUBODI rolls. Being an entrepreneur is great and allows for flexibility and creativity.

Do you have ideas to start a business? Do you need business coaching for a business that you already have to move to the next level? Let NUBODI coach you through some of the processes that may be challenging you.

Day 3 of 31 Days Blog Challenge: Top Places I Want to Visit

In my track and field days, I traveled many places within the United States but never outside of it. I didn’t travel really at all while my daughter was younger because I was focused on building us a life and supporting that life. I knew when my daughter graduated from high school that I was going to be ready to travel the world. Now that I have my passport, I am ready to stamp it up!!!

planning-a-trip-tips-and-challenges-2
My 5 Places I Want To Visit

I have mapped out some places that I would like to visit. I would like to travel to many places but here is my short list.

A few of the places I have some personal reasons for going and other places I just want the experience of being there.

Top Places I Would Like To Visit.

Africa
Egypt – I want to visit the pyramids and study the writings. From what I have read, the writings and markings of the walls of the pyramids are deteriorating (or someone is erasing them on purpose) and the history will be gone forever.
Ghana – Africa is the birth place, the Mother Land and I want to see and study the history, ancestry and beauty of Ghana.

India
Varanasi – Known as the Spiritual Capital of India, I am drawn to visit a place where I can  enhance my spiritual practices. This holy city is also known for people performing rituals and prayers in the streets. I could learn a lot there.
Sikkim– This beautiful city has been called Home of Ancient Buddhist Monasteries. Having dabbled in Buddhism studies, this city would enlighten my mind and further develop me spiritually.

France
Paris – This city is beautiful with many attractions such as the Eiffel Tower. My love for Italian food and the sexy Italian language would probably keep there.

Brazil
Rio de Janeiro – Their carnivals are some of the most amazing events in the world. “For two weeks every February, Carnival turns Rio into the party capital of the world. The city explodes into a riot of colour, music and dancing, with nearly every person in Rio getting involved.” Just the culture alone had me at HELLO.

United Arab Emirates
Dubai – Another beautiful place to visit that is on my list of top 5. Aside from the food, culture and adventures you can have there, just the experience alone would be amazing. “Traveling to Dubai is one of the greatest anthropological experiences one can have.”

There are many more places that I would like to add to my list to visit within my lifetime but these are just a few. Visiting these places would not only expand my cultural knowledge but also broaden the holistic health and wellness work that I do.

Day 2 of 31 Days Blog Challenge: My Dream Job

My Dream Job

When I was in high school, we would discuss our futures and where we saw ourselves. My dream job was to become a lawyer.  I felt like I argued very well and quite throughly enjoyed arguing with people so I would be good at being a lawyer. I didn’t enjoy the hard work it entailed in my pre-law classes. That dream quickly fizzled out during my freshman year of college.

My Dream Job
My Dream Job

I later changed my major to criminal psychology after I transferred to another college. I didn’t get into holistic health and wellness until later after I became an adult and a mom. Ultimately my dream job was to become self-employed. I knew that I liked working for myself and making money after I started doing hair and nails in college. However, just after my daughter was born was when I realized that the inconsistent clientele and hard work needed to bring in the clients wasn’t for me and I needed steady income.

Many businesses and attempts to be self-employed followed but nothing stuck. It wasn’t until I truly got involved in the health and well being of me and my daughter that I developed a passion for holistic health and wellness. I was fascinated by the subject and everything that I was learning. I shared it with anyone and everyone who would listen. I found myself sitting in classes that I was taking thinking I could teach this. So teaching was now on my radar.

I got my first teaching gig at the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) teaching holistic health and wellness workshops. While I didn’t consider myself a traditional teacher, I prefer the term holistic health and wellness educator, I enjoyed educating men and women on all things holistic health and wellness that I could talk about it for days. So to circle back to the topic of this blog, I am living my dream job of being self-employed which includes educating on holistic health and wellness subjects. Sometimes it takes life to come full circle to bring you back to what your passion really is.

NUBODI provides a variety of holistic health and wellness e-courses to inspire, motivate and provoke curiosity that supports you on your wellness journey.

Day 1 of 31 Days Blog Challenge: Meaning In A Name

Happy December people!!! I can’t believe it is the end of the year already. Time flies when you are having fun. I wanted to end the year with a blog challenge so that when I kick off the new year, I will have fresh new blog topics for you to read. Day 1 of this blog challenge begins with the purpose of my blog’s name.

NUBODI Blog

What’s in a name?

When I established my holistic health and wellness business, I started with healing work such as Reiki and chakra balancing. I saw the energy work as the inner healing and wanted to make sure that was the focus. While I was already into the herbs and crystals I did not have the experience to construct client sessions. I studied how to apply herbs, oils and crystals to create client sessions and build programs for my clients. Even with herbal medicine and clinical aromatherapy under my belt, I felt my holistic health and wellness business was still not complete. As a holistic health practitioner, I acknowledged that I wasn’t fully representing health and wellness without nutrition.

After receiving my certification in holistic nutrition, I became a vegetarian and grew more conscious of my own nutritional health. It wasn’t enough to coach men and women about holistic health and wellness when there were so many who needed additional assistance getting through certain areas of their lives. The holistic coaching became a critical part of a client’s health plan for their wellness journey. Last but not least, being a former athlete who participated in track and field for eleven years, I concluded that I needed to add the element of physical fitness to make my holistic health and wellness business complete.

As I continued to structure the business, in my mind’s eye I kept seeing a whole body, a NEW body. I thought that when you completed the inner work to match the outer work that was done, you transformed yourself into a NEW BODY. The name NUBODI was born. I like to be different and play with words so I changed the way you spell new body. The term NUBODI refers to healing the mind, body and spirit from the inside out, to fundamentally build a NUBODI.

As for the spelling of the blog name, by the time I actually got around to blogging, the name NUBODI was taken. I wanted my name so bad and wanted to keep with my brand, so I came up with NUBODI4U.

So you see, there’s a method to my madness in this holistic health and wellness business.

Are you looking to start your holistic health and wellness journey? Or are you already on your holistic health and wellness journey and want to take your journey to the next level?

Goal Setting for Success

Hard to believe this year is almost over. With only one month left in the year, you should already be working on your 2020 goals. Setting goals can seem easy but just stating what you want to accomplish, but without the necessary details to back up those statements, is really just wishful thinking. “Goal setting involves the development of an action plan designed to motivate and guide a person or group toward a goal.” With the advancement in technology, there are so many tools that can assist you in achieving your goals.

photo_career-corner_April-2018_goals

Meeting a Goal Takes Hard Work and Courage

“Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors, helps guides your focus and helps you sustain that momentum in life.” Getting a fancy book just to write what you want to achieve in the new year, is not going to get you what you desire most out of life. Being the healthiest, best version of yourself means taking care of your mind, body and spirit and being organized doing it. Your goal setting should include all of those areas of your life; mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, professional and business (if you have one or are trying to start one).

“Personal goals can provide long term direction
and short term motivation.”

  1. Setting mental health goals can greatly improve your life in so many ways. A few of the mental health goals that you can include are setting boundaries, cutting out the mental chatter, or removing electronics for a certain period of time or during a period of time.
  2. Emotional health goals may be a little harder to set. First you have to admit that you need to even set emotional goals. Some emotional goals can include: being comfortable with discomfort, making peace with what you cannot control, or communicating your feelings more.
  3. Spiritual health goals can mean many things to different people. For those that are religious, finding a new church home or a church community could be a spiritual goal. For others that are not so religious, a spiritual goal could be to sage (smudge) more or just finding more quiet time.
  4. Physical health goal setting is more commonly done than the other areas mentioned. Most people set goals to lose weight, eat healthier or create a workout routine.
  5. Financial goals are often either left out of goal setting or lumped in with career goals. A financial goal could be to pay off a certain amount of debt where as a career goal could be to increase your knowledge in a certain area of expertise.

“When you write your goals, don’t write what you think you can achieve, write what you want.”

Those are just a few examples in goal setting that you can achieve. Whatever your goal setting mission is, NUBODI can assist you with creating clear and precise goals and help you achieve them.

Do you need life/life purpose coaching? Want assistance in achieving your goals?

Healthy Eating During The Holidays

Are you ready for the holidays? They are HERE!! My favorite time of the year where I eat EVERYTHING!! Thanksgiving is the only time where I have more than two sides on my plate or at the table for that matter.

Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family.
Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family.

The holidays are also a time where people overeat and pack on the pounds. While the new year is always the time when people start their fitness goals, why not get a head start and incorporate healthy eating habits during this holiday season.

Here are 5 tips for eating healthy.

  1. Eat small portions of food
    Chances are, there is going to be a LOT of food to choose from and you are going to want to eat everything. Don’t do it, its a trap!! Instead of grabbing heaps of every food item offered, grab a smaller portions of the foods that you love the most. Calories add up and you would have eaten way more then you intended.
  2. Drink healthy and responsibly
    Drinking alcohol on an empty stomach while you are waiting for food to cook can cause problems later. Alcohol can increase your appetite and diminish your ability to control what you eat. Drink water in between glasses of alcohol. Water will fill you up and you won’t eat as much but it will also dilute some of the alcohol.
  3. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
    Nibbling on fruits and vegetables while you wait for the main courses will help you feel fuller and you won’t eat as much of the heavier foods.
  4. Eat regularly
    If the food is already out, eat small meals throughout the day instead of saving your empty stomach for a BIG meal. This can cause you to overeat.
  5. Eat mindfully and slowly
    Eating slowly can help with better digestion, better hydration and easier weight loss are among the many benefits.

    There are many other ways to incorporate healthier eating habits during the holiday and while traveling.
