Happy Longevity Mindsets

“Growing older is inevitable. Aging is optional.”

This is a quote by longevity expert Dr. Mario Martinez, a neuropsychologist and author of “The Mind Body Code.” Dr. Martinez has extensively researched centenarians across the planet who have lived healthy, happy lives. He’s found these centenarians share several common mindsets. 

For example, they:

  • Find wisdom and novelty in every challenge.
  • Focus on the future and what they can do – not on past aches and pains. 
  • Know that forgiveness is an act of self love.

No matter how old you are, the lessons from these individuals can apply to your life right now. If you want to know more, check out his book!

I’d love to hear if any of these mindsets resonate with you!

You Are Enough!

So much of the self-help industry is about becoming “better” in some way. 

Ironically, striving to be better can sometimes make us feel worse, like we are falling short in some way. 

I love helping my clients become their best selves – but never at the expense of beating themselves up.

If you don’t love and approve of yourself exactly how you are, right at this moment, it can be hard to improve or change – at least in a way that is fun and long lasting.   

Why? 

Because if we are not accepting and loving ourselves, we likely have an “inner mind critic” who is making us feel awful.   

When we feel awful about ourselves, it is hard to feel motivated and excited about changing or improving anything. 

This Valentine’s Day, is there some place in your life where you could be kinder to yourself? For example, if we are carrying some extra weight, can we learn to love, appreciate and honor our amazing body anyway?

Or if we unintentionally yell at our kids, can we try to love and honor what we are doing right with them? Can we show compassion towards ourselves?   

In that space of love and acceptance for ourselves, we create motivation for true and permanent changes.

You are enough in every way – even if you want to improve something!  

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Decide On New Beliefs

Have you ever been so tired of wanting to do certain things, but feeling too afraid to actually do them?

Skiing is a perfect example for me. I had been wanting to go, but I was terrified.

Over the past 10 years, I’ve sustained multiple injuries while skiing: dislocating both shoulders, tearing knee cartilage, and hurting my fingers. 

I love the mountains, the sport – and my family loves to ski, too! 

But fear has ruled my decision to avoid skiing for a long time. My thoughts included: “It is so easy to get hurt.” “I am afraid to ski,” or “I am too old.” 

Recently, I decided to conquer my fear of skiing. Over holiday break, my family and I visited Colorado.

I decided I would try to become a good skier while not being ruled by past fears.

First, I took some lessons to re-learn proper techniques.  

Second, I imagined myself skiing well. Then I focused only on good skiers as I rode the chair lift.

Finally, and most importantly, I focused on true thoughts that gave me energy while I skied. Thoughts such as: 

  • “I know how to ski.” 
  • “I trust the skis to do their job.”
  • “Skiing is fun.”

Guess what? I had a very fun time skiing and, miraculously, I was not afraid.

I had plenty of evidence that I had good reason to be afraid, but I don’t want to be ruled by fear in any area of my life.  

Beliefs can be changed if we want them to be changed.

Are there any beliefs that you would like to change?  I’d love to hear!
