4 Things That Will Make You Value Your Job (Besides the Salary!)

22 August 2015

I spend approximately 25% of my life at work. Since this is such a significant part of my life, my job absolutely has to be part of my life design. In all honesty, designing my work life has been the most difficult element of my life formula (even attempting to express how I’m trying to go about designing this element of my life in this blog has been an effort for me when words typically hit the paper no problem!)

How to Know When Your Formula Is No Longer Working In Your Life

22 August 2015

As I was talking to my best friend last week, I began to think more in depth about the whole concept of a formula or a design for my life. In that discussion I confided in her that over the last little while I’ve been taking stock of what my own formula is by knowing where I have things together in my life and also where I don’t.

How to Define Your Fitness "What" & " When"

15 August 2015

Does fitness feel like that thing you SHOULD be doing, but that you inevitably find a reason not to do? I’m a fitness video junkie, I’ll admit it. My collection is almost embarrassing (and the fact that I recycle and give away videos as soon as I’ve determined they don’t meet my rather stringent criteria, or I get bored with them, means the rather extensive library remaining is all the more shameful!)

Don't Resist Chances, Take Them Like Vitamins!

15 August 2015

When Kelly invited me to be a guest blogger for her site, Your Formula for Life, I was delighted! Kelly’s insightful website and Facebook posts are motivating and I greatly enjoy following her blog, however, I am not at all sure I belong here. In fact, my reply to her invitation was “I am not sure I have anything insightful to share. My formula for living consists of copious amounts of coffee, minimal sleep and flying by the seat of my pants, probably not what you’re looking for!”

Following My Curiosity

8 August 2015

I have been working as a Pilates instructor since 2005 and a Pilates instructor trainer since 2007. Looking back over the last 12 years I realize how much I have accomplished. I remember going through the training in 2004/2005, life was good. I enjoyed the group of people I was working with, I embraced what I was learning and I was excited about the future. It didn’t seem like work because I loved what I was doing.

3 Steps to Creating The Best Formula for Life

6 August 2015

How in the world is one supposed to start designing a formula for their entire life? In a recent discussion with a friend who admittedly is looking for the “next thing” in her life, I came away from the conversation contemplating how I knew where to start in my own formula and when I knew it was time to move on to the next thing.

Ever found yourself disappointed or angry because you did the very thing you’ve been trying to quit? Or you can’t seem to stick with something you know is good for you? You aren’t alone in this. I, for one, have had some very stern conversations with me regarding my bad behaviour.

How to Eliminate the Spending Clash With Your Spouse

30 July 2015

Today I’m going to do what some would think is politically incorrect…..I’m going to talk about money. Specifically I want to address how people in otherwise loving, caring relationships can have very different opinions and habits when it comes to spending money and this can cause either a platform for great collaboration as a couple, but more often it is the cause of a great deal of stress.
