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

Finding your purpose in life and living it out daily is a great source of fulfillment.  For me, I know mine – Coach and Life Enthusiast.  Decades of experience and being true to my belief’s, values and lifestyle have given me great personal satisfaction.  Being able to empower others gives me great joy as I witness lives being transformed as we are intentional about taking action to improve quality of life.

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?  

TCOY = Take Care of You!

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


…or should I say SLEEP ON!

Respect the amount of sleep your body requires. Give your body the rest it needs and it will reply in kind by giving you plenty of energy to fulfill your dreams. 

“Get your sleep honey and listen to your body” are two thing I remember my mom telling me when I was younger.  Both are things I embrace to this day.  The body and mind need time to re-boot and repair.

Are you finding yourself on the go all day and cheating yourself of a good night sleep?

I’ve heard people say “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” as if they’re a super hero that does can skip one of the most basic human needs falling behind air, water and food.

Sleep is the time in which the body heals and repairs itself and prepares for the next day.

Be mindful of TCOY (Take Care of You) especially during the holiday season as we tend to add more to our daily schedule by getting your rest.  You will be more mindful and the rest will enhance your immune system allowing you to fight of the cold and flu bugs.

4 Stages of Trust

3 things you give n still keep

4 Stages of Trust

Everything is built on trust. The four stages of trust:

1. Relationship. The first stage of trust represents the beginning of a relationship.  We generally start off with some preconceived notion about others. This is where a person’s or a company’s reputation comes into play.

2. Core Values. The second stage represents core values that lead to trusting relationships. Some examples are integrity, fairness, reliability, strength of conviction, and openness. When these actions are repeated time and time again, the relationship is strengthened and graduates to the next phase.

3. Consistency. The third stage, consistency, enables us to anticipate probable behavior and actions. It provides a certain degree of comfort that helps us to maintain the relationship even through difficult times.

4. Faith. The fourth stage is faith. This is the stage at which actions are so predictable that we don’t consciously have to think about the relationship. At this phase, trust has become so integral a part of the relationship that we expect it to work. It is at this stage that people allow themselves to become entirely vulnerable to others.

Definition of Success

2nd letter - success

Two minute YouTube video interview “What’s your definition of Success?


Ask the question above and you will probably get a variety of answers depending on what the person prioritizes.

Webster defines it as:  NOUN – the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”  Henry David Thoreau

Our society and culture far too often focuses on the financial aspect of success.  Unfortunately, many get to the later part of their life and realize the wall in which they placed their ladder of success was the wrong one.

During this holiday season I challenge you to take some time and ask this question among your family and friends.  If you are off course, reset your course and do it NOW.   The beautiful thing about life is it’s never to late to change and improve oneself.

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” Ayn Rand

What is Self-Care and Why it is Vital to Well-being?

Mindful choices throughout the day are not flashy and often they defy immediate gratification.  Embrace the BIG PICTURE and realize the consequences.

*Are you self-sabotaging your future with negative thoughts and habits?  

Although you cannot change overnight, you can change your direction.  Hoping things will get better will not change anything. Action is required.  Self-care is internally fueled by your thoughts, dreams and desires.

Taking care of you is not selfish it’s self love and necessary for well-being.

*Train your mind and body.

A good self-care plan reminds you of what you want to accomplish. This plan reminds you about what you need to do to take care of you.

* A foundation for what you want to do and how you can accomplish it.

You should also provide yourself with inspirational quotes and affirmations. This is the spiritual fuel that keeps you focused on your own personal well being.

In addition to inspirational quotes, you can hang motivating pictures throughout your home and office.

* Inspire you and remind you of  your why.

Track your progress. Keep a log of your exercise time and a food journal; record your mental and emotional health. Write down what’s going on inside of you so you can evaluate your feelings and proactively take care of your mental health.

*Create a Personalized Self-Care Plan

Ask yourself about what has motivated you in the past. Use this as your motivation toward the things you need to do to take care of yourself.

*You need to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else. 

A good self-care plan will provide you with the outlook, attitude, and energy to enjoy life to its fullest!

If you are feeling burned out and anxious about this Holiday Season, perhaps change is needed.

Simple has become a wonderful way of life for me as it allows more joy to flow into one’s life.  TCOY!

The Gift


Jesus doesn’t just give you what you need; Jesus is what you need. Your heart was created by Him, for Him. You can fight and claw to gain the world, but without Jesus, you will never be completely satisfied.

If there is a growing discontent deep inside your heart—a hunger that hasn’t been completely satisfied by the people, pleasures, parties, material things, or accomplishments—today is the day to open your heart to the idea that it is Jesus that you were made for. But you have to walk away from “less,” and ask Him to become your “more.” Jesus is enough for you, and He is here.

The REASON for the SEASON.  Merry CHRISTmas.
