How Eating Differently Can Change Your Life

Eating clean (or improving your food choices) is not about changing WHAT you eat, but it is ALL about changing HOW you eat.  It’s true!  So many people wait to eat something after they are all ready hungry or they eat by the clock.  But eating encompasses far more than just grabbing something on the go to get you through to the next meal time. So what do I mean by changing HOW I eat? By changing HOW you eat, you should consider these five things.  I would suggest that...

The Breakfast Experiment

The Breakfast Experiment

The report is due in two hours.  Or perhaps you’re in the middle of a mid-term exam.  Or you’re making sales calls. Suddenly, bam!  Around 10:30 a.m. and from out of nowhere you hit a wall!  All you want to do is look out the window, or better yet, take a short nap. Hmmm…the first question that pops into my head is, what did you eat for breakfast? I hate to say, “I told you so,” so I’ll turn to Mom, who has said it countless times:  Breakfast is the most important meal of...

Your Glass – Half Empty or Half Full

Your Glass – Half Empty or Half Full

Picture a big glass goblet filled to the halfway mark with water.  How do you see it—half-full or half-empty? Did you know that consistently finding the glass half-empty—and the world as a difficult place— is a hallmark of negativity?  So today I am hoping to help you change your way of thinking.

Beyond the Salad: Root Vegetables

Beyond the Salad:  Root Vegetables

When you think about healthy eating, salads and green vegetables usually come to mind. But how about adding a little more variety to your plan?  During the cold winter months, salads don’t help to fill you up, ground you or help you stay warm.  Instead, your body needs other grounding foods, like meats and seasonal root vegetables that you can toss easily into a soup or stew or roast in the oven. Root vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, and turnips, are a rich...

When we were first referred to Mrs. Cathy Dick at One Degree Forward, my first question was, “Is she a doctor?”  If the answer had been yes I think I would have refused.  Instead the answer was like a breath of fresh air.

I have been working with Cathy as my life coach and for the first time in my 36 years I finally know what I want to be when I grow up!  Now I feel like its an accomplishable goal!  I have a purpose now and I’m so excited!

What a huge difference Cathy made in my office at work!  She helped me organize the mountains of paperwork and chaos and now it looks great!  I have a system that I know will work for me because she made sure that things were organized by how I use them…everything in its place!  I value Cathy’s creativity, integrity, originality and helpfulness in all the organizing/time management projects she does.  Next I plan to take her Time Strategies program so I can get my business calendar, appointments and desk organized.  Can’t wait!!
