Show Up Strong
because your health is important to building confidence in how you look and feel so you can do the work you love most

 

This past Sunday in the New York Times a doctor wrote an article and stated that African Americans fair the absolute worst in every health outcome that is measured. It was true twenty years ago and it is has not changed today.  It is really hard to say no to make changes and stick with them. A healthy life is worth every ounce of work you put into it. You owe it to yourself, your children and the area you were born to impact in a big way.  B

Why is being healthy important to you?

For me being healthy means being able to keep up with my growing son, my professional life and personal relationships. This is important to me because when I can participate in everything without being tired and impatient it makes me feel successful.

Tip # 1

Establish a clear health outcome you want to change. This could be your blood pressure, your weight or your sleep habits. This is something you can measure and track.

Tip # 2

Define how you are going to move the needle towards your health outcome. This could be walking five blocks a day or limit ice cream intake to twice a week. Again this is something you can track.

Tip # 3

Speak to those you love about what you are doing and how important it is to you.

Tip # 4

Let your love ones know how they can help be successful. This you can define before you have this conversation so they know what to do to support you.

Tip # 5

Celebrate your success often.

Get the look you want and feel great on the journey this builds your confidence and makes communicating and connecting with others easier. You can create it, yes you can. Other women have done it and you are no different. Believe me, when you are comfortable with how you look and feel, it shows and makes everything you do a lot easier.

NY times article

You may have read books and you may have changed your diet and then stopped because your spirit has been broken by not seeing your health outcomes as fast as you would like. If you need a partner to remind you of how important your health is to living the life you love reach out to me for  help.

Begin the conversation with yourself about good health and sticking with it today and if you want help building your confidence that the life you dream of is possible, hit this link and schedule a complementary One Jazzy Life Discovery Session.

3 Tips to Positively Link My Money and Mindset

Posted by on May 15, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Boy is money a tough subject that is” charged” in so many ways. Think about the assumptions you make about how your life would be different with more money and even dare I say less money. These assumptions help you to craft the conversation you have with yourself when setting a personal financial vision.

Its raining money

Just say for example, and you know this has never happened to me, : ) that you are window-shopping on a warm summer day and you run across a super fly dress and shoes that you just “have to have”. You think to yourself “dammit I work hard every day and I am taking care of stuff, why shouldn’t I treat myself.”

 

I am not saying you should not go for the glad rags but I am saying be in touch with your financial vision and make choices that support your long and short-term vision.

 

3 Tips to begin to positively link your mindset and money

 

1# Begin by creating a financial vision.

I don’t care if you did it twenty years ago or you have never done this. Sit still one day soon and think about how you want to live and write each aspect down. Don’t play yourself by saying, “I am not going to write that, who am I to think I could live that large?”

 

2# Meet with a professional

Meet with a professional and begin with your vision and work backwards to what needs to be done. Don’t get sold on how they think you should be living, let them work with you on a plan that you feel comfortable with. If your plan needs tweaking be open.

 

3#Mind your words

Be mindful of how you phrase all of your conversations about money from the point of the choices you are making and not from the “I am broke or poor” perspective. Remember the words you use matter.

 

There are enough jobs and money for everyone to have what they desire, however, it does require some commitment to a rigorous plan and taking some leaps of faith.

More Protein is the answer.

Posted by on May 9, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Now we are talking about the protein you need to build the life you want. So bare with me for a minute. Proteins we eat help us build a healthy body. The proteins we need to build our authentic One Jazzy Life are the habits you commit to daily.Are you thinking to yourself one or all of these questions, how do I make the leap to a fresh healthier look, a more meaningful career, financial stability and time with great friends? You fill in the blank.

 

You know this just as well as I do and that is when you feel great you have more to give in ever area of your life.

 

3 Reasons Protein is Important

  • Get in the habit of making a decision and executing
  • Begin your day by saying something great to yourself
  • End your day by reviewing all you are grateful for

The conversation will sound something like this in your head. Do I really have time to wake up early go to the gym, come home shower and maybe have to take help a small fry (child) get ready for the day as well? I don’t think so!

 

Reframe. I have decided that I am going to exercise and maintain a healthy weight therefore let me start with two days a week of working this into my weekly routine. Every morning  say something positive  to yourself like ” I am marvelous and this journey is smooth as silk.” Then you might journal at the end of the day on two or three happenings of the day that you are especially grateful for.

 

Can you imagine if you did this for a month. The confidence YOU build with each and every step is powerful.Your decision may be different but let it be where you feel you need to fortify. Make the choice to add “protein” and build new habits, it feels good. A good that last forever.

 

I hope we agree that adding habits that fortify your authentic One Jazzy Life is good.

 

Having a vision of your One Jazzy Life

and a plan to get there that you are willing to execute is step 1, if you need help setting that vision click the link below and schedule a complementary no obligation 30 minute One Jazzy Life Discovery Session.

Conversation Starter of the Week

Posted by on May 1, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Every week you have a lot to do.

Begin your week with your top three priorities.

When you look at your top three priorities at the beginning of your week check your daily activities against movement towards crossing those priorities off. This requires some planning however implementing this one task each week can increase your productivity. When you speak to yourself with that still voice that no one else can hear, what are you saying. Are you sure you can achieve your top priorities for the week?

Get sure by breaking them down into bite sized task and what  your productivity soar. As your productivity soars professionally and personally your confidence will soar as well. Mom will not think you are running yourself ragged she will see the method to your madness is calculated to tee and is yielding the results you desire.

This is easy to do. Write your top three priorities on a sheet of paper and then list the activities under each one of those priorities in order that they need to be accomplished and start on Monday with number one on each of those list. This works on personal and professional priorities.

Sure things will pull you away from this and you have to budget time for these unexpected events but it can be done. You can use your voice to keep yourself on track and use your voice to speak to other about your priorities and say no nicely when you need to.  If you need a tool on saying no nicely shot me an email at janicesaunders@onejazzylife.com.

Add a comment below on how you are going to use your voice to keep yourself on track each week.

Cheers to living One Jazzy Life

Jazz Up Your Health

Posted by on Apr 29, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

While hanging out with friends this weekend in none other than Atlantic City, NJ I got into a discussion with a physician friend of mine who practices in our nations capital. We were talking about HEALTH and the fact that 70 % of the women we knew were seriously overweight. The first thing I said was that every last one of them was depressed because you can’t enjoy your life and want to live a long life if your lifestyle, by way of poor eating habits and not exercising says I am not happy and want to die slowly. That says to me that you don’t care and would not mind if you die tomorrow.

Now I know that statement is seriously extreme but extreme is where the problem is. As a woman, you are usually in charge of what is eaten in the house hold. You have the ability to shape the eating habits of your man and your children. They take your lead. Yes there are factors that contribute to poor eating habits and not exercising however, if  you want to live a long life filled with a healthy career, healthy relationships healthy finances and a healthy spiritual life you have to take good care of  your body so you are in top form for all of these endeavors that require your full attention.

Have you read books, tried stuff for a few weeks then stopped or have you just done nothing because the task of taking charge of your health seems too hard. Are you thinking what will I do if I want cake or ice-cream or fried chicken? What if I don’t feel like exercising. How do I tell my family and friends I don’t have time for “that” whatever “that” is today because today is my exercise day.

RELAX, YOU CAN DO THIS

Learn how to have a conversation with yourself centered around how much you love yourself and want to be more healthy. When you have begun this conversation you can then extend this conversation to others who are important to you who need to know how much you value life and want to be LIVING good for a long time.

Jazz Up Your Health, a  new coaching program designed just for you,  uses improving health habits as a base for building your Confidence so you can Communicate with others more effectively and Connect more intimately with others for opportunities.

For less than the price of a pair of shoes you can invest in yourself to develop some new strategies to put you on the magic path to living your life more abundantly, check out Jazz Up Your Health.

Program begins May 1st so don’t delay. Click this link and have more information sent to you today.

Jazz Up Your Health, new coaching program

Show Up Strong because your health is important to building confidence in how you look and feel

My Dearest Soul Sister ,

Are you struggling with a voice in your head that is not supporting the way “YOU” really desire to be?

Have “YOU” thought lately that your health habits are not they way “YOU” know God intended.

There comes a point in life where you suddenly feel like you are running out of time, nothing is really exciting anymore and you’re not getting out there the way you know you need to in order to make the advances you like personally and professionally.

It could be how you feel about your weight.

The truth is that the secret to your long life, happiness and fulfillment begins with establishing good health habits for you and those you love.

After working in the pharmaceutical industry for twenty five years no one knows it better than I do that women of color are at the worst end of every health outcome that is measured. YOU have to take control TODAY.

This is kind of how it happens….

*College is hardly ever kind and you put on some weight.

*After college you gain 10 pounds that first year out.

*Then you gain another 10 pounds over the next two years while you were trying to loose that first 10.

*Then all of the sudden you are 30 years old and married with 25 extra pounds and wanting to have a baby.

*Then you have a baby and gain 50 pounds .

*You loose 25 when the baby is born and then for two years you are busier than you have ever been in your life and cooking healthy meals is important but falls by the way side to sleep.

*Now you are 35 years old and 35 to 40 pounds over weight and you are happy because you have made your dreams come true

BUT

The weight.

I created a Jazz Up Your Health a highly inspirational part online part individual coaching program for women who are ready to

1.Create Confidence and take control you have over your health outcomes

2. Dream the brightest dream and Communicate to others how important this is to your life.

3. Step into actually Connecting your everyday life with a blue print to keep you moving towards this clear and inspired vision for yourself.

There is limited space in this program so I can give each of you the individualized coaching attention to make the transformation you desire possible so don’t delay. Let me know you are interested today by clicking the link below.

Jazz Up Your Health begins Friday May 1st.

Have you given up. Have you just said forget it, it is not worth it, it is too hard or I won’t be able to do it anyway.

You are not alone, I’ve been there too. I have been there in my career, my marriage, my parenting, and my business. This is a hellish place where your confidence plays tricks on you. When I was there in my career some years ago, I could not get going everything I touched to move up did not work. Finally I stopped trying and focused on what I loved and things began to shift, but this did not happen until I told myself a different story. The honest truth about what I wanted.

You know you can accomplish your goals too and even when that little voice in your head  says all that negative stuff and you just put stop typing, if you were planning to write a book. You just stop exercising when you are trying to loose a few pounds. You just eat junk when you know your pressure is high.

Tell yourself a new story. The story of the truth about what you really want and watch doors with opportunities open out of nowhere.

How do you strengthen that voice in your head so nine times out of ten, you keep pressing towards your goal. My philosophy is that this begins with the conversation you have with yourself. When you have faith in your higher power, mine is God, and you take focused action, watch out. With faith and focused action you can achieve your goals and when you add coaching you can propel yourself to the life you desire even quicker.

One of my private clients has just switched positions and is attracting opportunities left and right. The switch wasn’t easy, it was painful, full of doubts and fears and in the end she is happier and busy doing the type of work she loves with people who she enjoys being with so much more. Our coaching helped smooth over the bumpy patches of this past year.

Are you working to create a new outcome in your life? If so reach out to me at janicesaunders@onejazzylife.com to  see if working together could accelerate your growth in the area you desire.

Five Tip Tuesday

Posted by on Apr 7, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Some years ago I met women who were up in years but they looked twenty years younger than they were. I wanted to be a lot of things in my life and one of them was to look like they did at 70. Their skin glowed, their bodies were tone and strong and they were sexy!
I created 5 Tip Tuesday because Women are usually Tired, Overworked and Stressed and I know you want more for yourself

Start small with…
Why is being healthy important to you?

These women

Tip # 1
Did not eat meat.

Tip # 2
They brushed their skin with a dry skin brush before showering

Tip # 3
They showered with the water hot, warm, cool and ended with ice cold to close the pores and invigorate the body

Tip # 4
They used vitamin e oil on their faces several times a day

Tip # 5
They stretched daily, not hard yoga but simple stuff like touching your toes by bending forward

Get the look you want and feel great on the journey.

love letter to me

Dear Janice,

I am so proud of you, you have finished the book you had been planning to write for some years, you are speaking to women and girls about Using their Voice to Make an Impact and Make Their Dreams Come True, you have been invited to speak at a business conference this summer and you have group and private coaching sessions currently.Remember last year you hadn’t taken the risk to attend a conference to promote your business and you were still faltering in the voice you were using to speak to yourself about the value your business brings to the clients you serve. This you know and are sure of today and you have to feel good about it. You Rock!Kitten valentine with copy space

You may not be everywhere you want to be at the moment however the progress is just what God intended for you. You are doing a better job at managing your time and resources than you have done in recent years and for that you should treat yourself to something wonderful for Easter if you so desire.

If there is an area of development, which there always is, you know the area of patience is where you dip down into the hinterlands of the negative numbers. You let your son push your buttons to make you crazy as a loon. Get a hold of yourself and focus on the words he shared with you just this morning, ” Mom you are three in one, you made me, you take care of me and you spend time to love me”. Even though you did not know what to say or do except to give him a kiss,  after all I know you wanted to pull every strand of your hair out over breakfast, this is the true reward. You are good and keep your hand in God’s and you will be alright.

Love

Janice
