10 Day Sugar Challenge: Starts August 21, 2017!

The next 10-Day Sugar Challenge is just in time for back to school! What a great way to close out summer and take charge of your health!

Sugar cubes picDid you know that high sugar intake is not only linked to dis-eases like high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and inflammation but sugar can also aggravate other conditions like hormonal imbalance, headaches and migraines, yeast infections, joint pain, and overgrowth of the “bad” bacteria in our gut?

Some of you might feel like you are addicted to sugar. Or maybe you might think you don’t eat much sugar until you decide to really clean it out of your diet (What? It’s in bread and deli meat?). Maybe you are usually pretty low-sugar but you just want to get yourself back on track? Or perhaps you’re ready for a little end-of-summer reset? Wherever you are, we have a level to support you in your health and vitality!

If any of these sound like you, I have the perfect solution for you!

Join the next 10-Day Sugar Challenge starting August 21st!

 

What you will get:

  • private Facebook support group with daily suggestions, tips and ideas to address any sugar cravings. You can also post questions, get support from other members, and stay connected to the sugar retreat community.

Nourish Yourself Group: Next enrollment starts in August 2017

Nourish Yourself Group: Next enrollment starts in August 2017

I’m thrilled to be putting together an exclusive new online group called Nourish Yourself. There is currently a group running, but the next one will start August 2017.  I am excited about creating a really dynamic, positive, focused group of women who will support each other in self-care practices, truly nourishing ourselves, and cultivating our mind-body-spirit connection so that we can show up powerfully in the world.

I’m calling the group Nourish Yourself because I think these times are calling for us to nourish ourselves in so many ways—food, movement, sleep, creativity, joy, and self-love. I also think we are more powerful together, which is why I want to create a group experience.

Having facilitated and participated in many groups over the years, I know how fantastic a well-guided group can be when we compassionately hold each other accountable, draw on our collective wisdom, celebrate the positive steps forward, and raise each other up.

What you will get out of the group:

★   Discover a personal solution that works for you because one size does not fit all!

★   Develop a platform for personal growth and transformation that addresses your thoughts, feelings, habits, and patterns to create new ones that help you achieve your goals around health and nutrition.

★   Practice ways to let go of guilt and fear around eating and instead really enjoy and celebrate food.

★   Learn to feel more confident in your ability to create nourishing meals or meal plans that support your body, mind and spirit.

★   Focus on gratitude for our body, enthusiasm for making small changes that lead to big results, and creating awareness about what we really need and want.

★   Explore various ways to nourish yourself and bring more joy to every day.

Email me at michelle@healthcoachmichelle.com if you are interested in adding yourself to the waiting list for the next group!

Floating to Wellness

Floating to Wellness

I first floated in February 2012 when my friend and colleague John Balquist first opened Oakland Floats. I loved it right from the start. I walked out of the session in the magnesium salt-filled tank feeling lighter, clearer and more energized. That night I had a deep, relaxing, healing sleep that I completely aatributed to the float. Even two days later I was still feeling the positive effects: I got things done so easily and effortlessly, like I had eight arms and each was carrying out the task with ease and joy. Floating restored me to my center, allowing me to move and act from a place of balance and clarity.

If you have never floated before, at Oakland Floats you step into a tank or small room filled about 10 inches with warm water saturated with Epsom salts. According to the website, “Floatation tanks are lightless, almost soundproof tanks of warm saltwater. They remove external physical stimuli, creating a state of ‘sensory’ relaxation. Under these conditions your body has a chance to restore its natural powers of self regulation, while you simply lie back and relax. The temperature inside the tank is kept at 93.5 degrees, the same temperature as your skin. As a result, the nerve endings which cover the surface of the skin no longer perceive any sense of separation between the skin and the silky mineral solution which surrounds it. Free from all external stimulation, your body can achieve a state of relaxation which is deeper, purer and more beneficial than sleep. With no body to look after, your mind can attend to other business.”

Oakland Floats picThe first few times I floated, my mind took a little while to settle down and ease into the darkness. However, I would eventually relax and once I started to get used to being in the tank, it was really amazing to feel where I carried tension. I was floating there totally relaxed except I was clenching my jaw. I thought, “Why am I clenching my jaw?” and then released it.  Floating, because it removes other sensory input like sight and sound, helped me really tune into my body and fully realize where I carried tension so that I could fully let it go.

I continued to float every few months or so and loved the peace and clarity it brought to me each time. However, just like any wellness practice, regular visits are an important part of maintaining balance, and so I decided to float three times in three weeks to see how that might effect my health and well-being.

Consecutive floats really amplified the positive effects for me. I found I was able to relax into the water more quickly each time, and I noticed right away my body would just let go. My mind was another story, of course. Boy, was there a lot of chatter in there. With nothing else to stimulate it, my mind would go into overdrive at first but then eventually it just sort of ran out of things to say. Then would come a quiet so deep, a silence so delicious.

It is so wonderful to set aside time to be in a space with no light and no sound. We are constantly bombarded, whether we conscious of it or not, with so much artificial light and sound—from our computers, TV, phone, radio, etc. It is so refreshing and relaxing to really get away from all that stimulation for a little while. Floating also has allowed me to see where I might be holding on to something that is no longer serving me and not even realize it. With all other stimuli gone, the body has time to really check-in on itself and return itself to a state of balance. 

So who might want to consider floating as part of their wellness plan? Anyone who is having difficulty sleeping, feeling overwhelmed and stressed out, challenged with food/sugar addictions, suffering with joint pain, pregnant, or just needs a little time to reset and restore. I think that covers just about all of us!

If you want to check out the floatation center or learn more about ways to reduce stress and cortisol levels, please come to my free talk at Oakland Floats Tuesday, November 17 at 7 p.m.
