TCOY Wellness

2014 July bridge JOURNEY bwMy life’s personal journey and career experiences as a former professional athlete and coach (30+ years) have taught me a lot about the human body, commitment, choices and discipline.  LIVING WELL

Think back to someone who has blessed you as a mentor. Coaches, teachers, and mentors provide  insight and guidance through knowledge and expertise.  With decades of experience of living the TCOY (take care of you) lifestyle, my clients are empowered and endorse my coaching due to the outcome based results.  LinkedIn profile    Inspiring Well-Being

My TCOY philosophy is to focus on total well-being:  Mind, Heart, and Body.  Simple disciplines or errors in judgment over time will reveal themselves in life.   Where you spend you time, energy, and money reveals your priorities.  As a coach, we work together and I challenge you to take inventory and make the changes as needed.  The bond between a coach and client is one of respect and commitment.

Are you taking care of everyone but you? A valuable lesson people need to be reminded of is:  “take care of you”; thus “TCOY”.  We can be of little help to ourselves or others if our personal health fails.

Someday is another word for procrastination.  In regards to your well-being, the sooner you begin to take care of your body, the better off you will be. If not now, when? When you create a mindset for wellness, your lifestyle changes and your Quality of Life improves. Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.  What pathway are you choosing? All things are possible!

Are you overwhelmed by demands on your time, choices to make and simply do nothing. WARNING:  choosing to do nothing is a choice too. Avoidance is not a solution nor the answer when it comes to your health and it can cost you your life!

Change your thinking ~ change your life.  Focus on what you want in your life and take action to receive it. Neither wellness nor sickness occur over night, they are a result of choices over time.  Your daily choices become habits; those habits can be a blessing or curse as time passes.  ACTION REQUIRED – Your health is my business!  Start creating a better YOU from this day forward.

Some excuses that can cost you your life:

*I just can’t change.
*I feel pretty good right now.
*I don’t have the time or energy.
*I am not sick, so I’m healthy.  Right?
*I can’t afford it, my budgets too tight.
*I have more important things to think about and do.
*I get confused and overwhelmed about where to begin.

I welcome the opportunity to provide guidance for sustainable wellness and more joy in life.   If you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?

You Don’t Have To Be Sick To Get Better!

Are you ready to change

How do you respond to change? Is your initial reaction to change negative? Seek to embrace a positive mindset through a training process of seeing good and growth resulting from change.

Learning how to deal with change reduces emotional and physical stress; thereby allowing you to enjoy life even during the transitional stages.  Since change is inevitable, the best offense is a strong defense.

Being prepared and knowing how you respond when stressful situations arise allows you to PAUSE and divert the possible “runaway train wreck” by taking a time-out to regroup.  This is a training process and there will be times the past reactions will beat out the new behavior.  That’s ok, this is when we ask for a “do over”.   Rather than beating yourself up on what you didn’t do, find favor in what you did do and then continue on.  Life is a journey of many races.  Be encourage rather than defeated.

Joan Lunden’s book, A Bend In The Road, is a reminder we can’t stop changes from occurring, but we can control how we react to them.

Excerpts from My Secrets to Resilience -

 -Sallie Krawcheck

I believe that what I’m doing matters. 

I recognize how fortunate I am.

I feel a responsibility to the people who’ve helped me.

I listen to the critics, I course-correct, but I don’t dwell. 

I’ve loved my jobs. 





We all know that hope is a good thing, even an essential thing: there is no life without hope, or so the saying goes. Psychologists believe hope might be the most important feeling, state, or emotion we can experience. Their studies show that hope is key to good health, the best predictor of a meaningful existence, and an indicator of academic and athletic performance. LINK

The Art of Connecting

a teacher in the making

Have you ever notice how well kids and animals connect without words?

Today’s society has more ways to communicate than any other time in history but the question is, are you truly connecting or just sharing information and wanting to talk?

Communicate: to give information about (something) to someone by speaking, writing, moving your hands, etc.

Connect:  bring together or into contact so that a real or notional link is established.

The ability to hold a natural conversation is key to success in the professional world. Knowing when to initiate a discussion, keeping it interesting by asking effective questions, sharing your own stories and ending dialogue with kindness is an art.

I see life this way, there are no strangers, only people you haven’t met yet.  If I’m standing in line or see someone sitting on a bench, the odds are pretty good I will acknowledge them with at least a smile and perhaps start a conversation.  I’ve met some very good friends by such an encounter.

Is this outside of your comfort zone?  Learn how to create connections in conversations by following these seven steps – Excerpt article:

1. Exude confidence. When you’re comfortable in your own skin, you make others comfortable. If you take the attitude that you bring something to the table, you will see that attitude reflected in others. Remember: Attitudes are worth catching make yours infectious by being full of enthusiasm

2. Show up with something to say. Always be on the lookout for material to start up a conversation.

3. Begin with a question. Besides showing interest in someone, one simple question can start an entire conversation. Asking something a bit unusual sets you apart from the crowd. Rather than, “What do you do?” ask, “How do you enjoy spending your weekends?”

4. Find common ground. The surest way to build rapport is to find something you have in common and build on that interest. Don’t shy away from topics that have nothing to do with business. They often create the perfect connection.

5. Focus on others. Putting your energy and interest in another person marks you as a great conversationalist.  Keep that back and forth volley going with conversation.

6. Be inclusive. Excluding others in the group is a conversation killer. Make eye contact with everyone in the group, not just the person who asked you a direct question.

7. Close a conversation with class. When a conversation naturally lulls, take advantage and say, “It’s been a pleasure talking with you. I hope our paths cross again soon.” Before leaving, be sure to thank the hosts.
