Episode 7 Way To Wellness: How to Eat for Success10/03/2019 Duración: 16min
Let's talk about food. I love food! Despite the differences in how we all may eat, there are a few common factors in eating for success that we can keep in mind: - Nutrients - Satisfaction - Nourishment In my Cliff's Notes version, nutrients are the vital necessary substances your body needs to be a healthy living organism. Satisfaction is that sense of fulfillment, of contentment when you've eaten for your own best interest and benefit. Nourishment is your fullness, and the sense of your needs being met in such a way that you feel truly fed and gain mind-body alignment. We dive into all this and MORE this week on our way to wellness so we can shine a light on how to eat for success and the steps we can use to take ACTION today!
Episode 6 Way To Wellness Podcast: Goals Aren't Everything03/03/2019 Duración: 15min
If you've spent any amount of time searching out the best ways to accomplish your healthy living goals, chances are you've run into a lot of nonsense on The Internets. There are those who will scream that goals ARE everything, that you need their help to accomplish them, and that's how they sell you on their services. I'm not that kind of health coach. So, in episode 6 of the Way to Wellness podcast, I share how I set and accomplish goals (yep, I still do, but with a twist) and how(if you are like I was and the word 'goal' made you cringe with intimidation) goals should actually function by improving your life - not making it harder. I even share a little about a goal I didn't reach last month and the cool thing that happened instead. It could happen for you, too! Let's get to it.
Episode 5 Way to Wellness Podcast: Discomfort24/02/2019 Duración: 22min
In this episode of the Way to Wellness podcast, I'm going there. The topic that people don't like to talk about: discomfort. Even the word itself makes you think of one of those squirming actors in a hemorrhoid cream commercial. BUT, what if I told you that the emotional discomfort we all encounter can serve a very valuable purpose? Have you noticed the patterns of discomfort in your own life? Do they stem from big life decisions? What else do they stem from? This episode went longer than usual because of the 2 major ways you first experience discomfort, the 4 ways you can make discomfort meaningful, AND the kayak story I promised in episode 4. So what are you waiting for? Give it a listen!
Episode 4 Way To Wellness: Accountability16/02/2019 Duración: 14min
Being responsible for where you are presently, and taking the necessary steps to get to where you want to be are amazing things. YES! I get even more excited when you decide to let me be your guide and supporter on this path. But accountability in coaching? I beg to differ. During a coaching training class earlier today, one particular instructor mentioned that one of the benefits of coaching was that we facilitate accountability for our clients ... urk. It just rubbed me the wrong way. Surely I can't be the only one?! Join me as I break down the three reasons WHY this internal reaction came up in response to the way the instructor conveyed 'accountability,' and the ONLY time when I think it actually does work.
Episode 3 Way To Wellness Podcast: Finding the Time03/02/2019 Duración: 12min
We all struggle with time. Finding the time to live our lives, work our jobs, spend time with our families, friends and furkids, exercise, eat right, drink enough water, be well-rounded people ... geez, you get exhausted just listing all these things, much less doing them. Finding enough time to dedicate to your health and wellness goals can be a serious barrier - but it doesn't HAVE to be. In this podcast, we touch on our perception of time, the reality of time, and how to make the MOST of your time. Finding the time isn't about locating a loophole in the space-time continuum. The REAL story is that you have the ability to take control of the time you have and maximize it to your benefit.
Episode 2 Way To Wellness Podcast: The Secret to Motivation27/01/2019 Duración: 10min
Here's a riddle for you! What's the one thing everyone wants to get, keep, and generate more of? Motivation! You guessed it. You're so smart. Often characterized as the 'why' behind our actions (which I could do another whole episode about that damn 'why' ... matter of fact, I WILL do an episode about it) motivation gets all the credit for 'lighting the fire' under our proverbial arse. In the second episode of the Way to Wellness podcast, I present a distinctly different take on motivation than anything you've probably seen before - especially those who promote health and wellbeing. Hint: I do not tell you how to find motivation. Listen and find out!
Episode 1 Way To Wellness Podcast: How to Get What You Want20/01/2019 Duración: 13min
Hello, listeners! Welcome to the first episode of the Way to Wellness podcast, where you discover your OWN way to wellness and OWN it. See what I did there? My name is Kacey, and I am a wellness coach and writer based out of Pelham, Alabama. I record this podcast in my home office, the headquarters of my freelance writing and coaching business. My desire to help people create healthier lifestyles for themselves has taken shape through one-on-one coaching and by educating and informing with the health-focused material I write. Any way I can get the information out there and into your hands (or in your ears) is what I want to do in order to show you what is possible for you! Why am I so passionate about health and wellness? About 3 years ago I lost 20 lbs and performed a complete 180-turn on how I was living my life, and I want to help you, the one struggling to do the same. It would have been such a meaningful experience for me to have support while I worked to tear down my old way of life and build a new
