Ok! It’s Time!
Time for what, you may be asking.
Because you’ve been a loyal supporter of my passion trajectory, you deserve an inside track to all things Peak Health 360. Welcome to the first edition of Peak Purpose!
My brain just never seems to stop, and apparently, writing down all these swirls of thought helps with clarity, focus and forward motion. So today I begin the ‘blogging’ journey with you and for you.
I’ve made it my goal to share monthly ideas with you that will range from workouts and wellness tips to financial mindset and management tools, and maybe from time to time throw in my new favorite streaming binge (and there are tons of those). If we speak on the daily, you probably know the streaming tips, but it seems so many of us get stuck in other areas of our lives, and I would love to be one of your agents of change.
Just in case you aren’t aware, prior to becoming a fitness coach, I spent 20 years as an investment advisor and analyst, hence the financial mindset topics. In fact, almost half of my business is financial mindset consulting, which basically means that I support others in gaining greater financial confidence and aligning their money with their beliefs. Peak Finance provides online and live workshops on a variety of financial topics including Money Mindset, Savings and Emergency Funding, Sneaky Spending, Investing for Your Future, Tax Time Tips, etc. Hopefully, you get the picture. This is a hot topic for Employers, as, according to several research findings, between 35 and 50% of stress at work is related to personal finances. Fun Fact: In 2021, I’ve already presented 3 corporate wellness workshops, and have several more lined up through April.
Enough about me for now. I really WANT to hear from you, too. Tell me what’s going on in your world that has you confounded, confused or just plain stuck. Maybe we work through it together. Maybe, just from what I write, you’ll get your own ideas on how to move past the stuck-ness, into more clear territory. Either way, the purpose of the Peak Purpose Blog is to be relevant, relatable, informative and easy to read, so feedback is welcome and appreciated. We are all a work in progress, right?
If you’d rather not get ANOTHER inbox item, I completely understand. Inbox overwhelm is just one of the many areas of our electronic lives that can bring on stress triggers. This is where you message me back and say, thanks but no thanks. You can always check my social pages for topic updates.

Make Your New Year Fitness Routine A Habit
How is your New Year Workout routine going? Are you closer to your fitness goals? I decided to wait until March to hit you up on this one, since most people tend to slide off the intended fitness resolution by March, pandemic or not. Here’s the thing though: using the pandemic as an excuse just doesn’t fly anymore. With the never-ending free workout ideas available on social media and streaming services, and all the research proving that even body weight exercises can improve your overall fitness level, the only reason you're not working out is...well, you. (Too Honest?) Hey, look, I get it. There are days when I have zero interest in exercise. But for me, knowing how I will feel later in the day if I don’t workout is motivation enough, even if I just go for a two mile walk. And let’s not even bring up the no-time excuse; I have to squeeze my workouts in between clients, and that is a moving target. So, if it means waking up 45 minutes earlier each day to just get 25-30 minutes of exercise, you and your day will be better off. Just read the myriad articles, tweets, posts and blogs about how one of the main habits of successful people is waking up early each day. The best way to kick start your mental flow is through blood flow. Just sayin...
