Raising Healthy, Happy Children

healthy-happy-childrenToday we are experiencing an epidemic of overweight children.  What happened to kids playing outside all day until the street lights came on?  Why are our children no longer playing kickball, or climbing trees?  It seems as though every place we look, there is an electronic device attached to our children…cell phones, tablets, laptops, iPods, and the list is ongoing.  It is fair to say that an obese child will have a greater tendency to become an obese adult.  While the chubbiness may appear to be cute when they are younger, we all know that this is not the case as they enter into adolescence and adulthood.  Unfortunately, the children may develop an inferiority complex and other personality issues.

Let’s come together and help these children reclaim their lives!  How?

  • Prepare healthier meals together
  • Schedule physical activities for pleasure (i.e. bike riding, walking, swimming, sports, etc.)
  • Educate on the importance of health and one body
  • Shop for more fruits and vegetables to have as snacks
  • Listen, did I say listen…again I say listen

Take the time to talk with your children and take the time to actually listen to their responses.  Try to find out if your child is stress eating.  Pay attention to your child’s schedule and change in behavior.  We can help our children combat obesity, depression, and other conditions battling our children, in order to do so, we need to make ourselves available.

If you are unsure of how to talk with your child about a given topic, schedule your COMPLIMENTARY phone consultation with LAE-LAH Inc. and let us help guide you.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You.signature

Success—How is it Determined?

 

How successful are you, really?  How do you know?  Who determines your success?  Furthermore, what determines your success?  Are you measuring your success by your neighbors and those around you, or are you measuring your success by the goals you have set and worked toward achieving for yourself?

Hint—the key to success is not to measure it by the standards of the world.

A State of Contentment

contentAre you looking to achieve a better life?  Start by assessing what you have and where you are in life—then count your blessings.  Many of us overlook the fact that we are healthy; have clean water to drink; have friends and family; live in decent housing—what is wrong with us?  Starting today, make a commitment to enjoy the natural things in life, something as simple as the trees.  With all the building going on, our trees are constantly being cut down.  Why?  Because we want more!

One of the presenting issues in today’s society is the desire of wanting more—more than what we have, more than the next person—just more.  Unfortunately, finding ourselves content in our current state seems to be a rarity.

Did you know that it takes a lot of time, effort, and energy to strive for things beyond our control?

This is self-defeating behavior because it leads to increased frustration and an ongoing longing for more—more peace, more joy, more love.  All of these things are found and received when one allows Christ to be their center.

Soar Like an Eagle

Aim high to reach your goals.  Stop settling for mediocrity!  Do not allow yourself to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of competition or “comparisonitis”—be free to be you.  I realize and accept the fact that change is one of those difficult things for many people—declare not to be that person any longer.  We experience change on a daily basis and it is all around us.  The weather changes, time changes, the days change—why are we so afraid of embracing change?

As children, we were sculpted in the different ways we should act, look, and respond to certain people and situations.  Life changes that for all of us.  We have encountered different paths and discovered many new ways of managing life circumstances.  Now we must spend some time chiseling our sculpture.  Break away from the negativity, cut off the bruised pieces, and let’s begin to heal together to positively impact the world in which we live.

This is not going to be an overnight adventure, this is going to be a life long journey.  Today is a good day, no EXCELLENT day, to begin.  We know that tomorrow is promised to no one, so let today be the day that you initiate this endeavor.  This track may find itself easy for some, while difficult for others.  Do not let that deter you from participating.  Simply CLICK HERE to schedule your complimentary phone consultation with LAE-LAH Inc. to begin.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You. signature

Power of Positivity

positivityAre you looking to overpower the negativity in your life?  Start by focusing on the positive instead.  Did you know there are so many ways to view situations and still get the same message across?  Imagine the child who constantly runs through the hallways of the house and the parents are yelling “STOP RUNNING IN THIS HOUSE!”  Do you realize the same message can be presented in a positive manner by just saying “please walk?”  Same message—different perspective.

As you place more of your attention and energy on the positives in your life, you will begin to instantaneously feel better.  There will be less stress prevalent in your life.  People around you will appear calmer.  Energy feeds off energy, whether positive or negative.  Once you start putting more positive energy into your atmosphere, it will spread like a wildfire.  Do not take my word for it.  Try it!

Perhaps you want to take this new discovery to a new level.  Find out how by scheduling your COMPLIMENTARY PHONE CONSULTATION with LAE-LAH Inc. right now.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You.signature

Inspiration Bound

inspiration1It’s not rocket science—life can be difficult.  It can be downright frustrating at times.  Many people are struggling trying to balance work and home life, finding themselves in situations beyond their control.  Would you like to know a great way to overcome such demands?

If you answered yes, read on…

You can start by surrounding yourself with inspiration—inspirational words, inspiring people, inspiring scents—yes, these things do exist; however, you have to be willing to allow them into your circle of influence.

Are you looking to do something creative in your life?  Start by releasing yourself from all the “killjoys” currently present in your life.  Sad, but true, not everyone has your best interest at heart.  There are some people who stay close to you, hoping to see you fail.  Yes, they want to be able to see it “firsthand”, as they float along their life and strive to make themselves look good by making you feel bad.

inspirationWhen is the last time you read an inspiring story or gazed upon the beauty of God’s great creation?  Today is a good day to delve into the Bible and read the “Greatest Love Story Ever Told” and/or take a walk outside as you embrace the trees, the skies, the birds.

After doing such, don’t you feel a sense of increased energy?  Are you not experiencing moments of refreshment?

Inspiration is such a powerful thing because it reaches the very core of our being.  Inspiration is contagious—share it with others.  Perhaps you are looking to learn more about the beauty of inspiration and how you can incorporate into your daily living.  Schedule your COMPLIMENTARY PHONE CONSULTATION with LAE-LAH Inc. today.  Be Blessed.  Be Whole.  Be You.signature
