I’ve been talking a lot about mindfulness recently because of its effect on both your results and wellness …And I can’t NOT talk about its impact on your sleep. You probably already know that not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, appetite, focus, productivity, performance, health, and even your waistline. But get this… Mindfulness meditation has been shown to cut the wake time of people suffering from insomnia by up to 50%.
How mind-blowing is that?
Mindfulness meditation can be as simple as sitting quietly with your eyes closed for 5-10 minutes, focusing on your breath, or you could use an app like Headspace or Calm. Plus … it can have carryover benefits to your overall health and wellness.
It’s all connected …

The list goes on and on!

Every once in a while I get a panicked email or call from someone who wants to “lower their cholesterol down x points before their next doctor’s appointment a month from now“ or “get ready for a marathon in two months”. Don’t get me wrong: Those are all important goals … but they absolutely are not possible (at least in a healthy and sustainable way) in only a month or two!
Ever eaten at a gourmet sandwich shop and tried something new … and was BLOWN AWAY by the deliciousness?!Well, I’ve got a recipe for you today that’s based on one of those sandwiches. I’m drooling just thinking about it. It’s crunchy (the toasted bread) … creamy (the avocado & hummus) … and tangy (the sauerkraut).
