Why You Should Start NOW!

The first step is often the most difficult and important step we can take.  Though we’ve done our share of procrastinating, we have also grown to appreciate and enjoy the power of getting started.

Physics teaches us that objects at rest tend to stay at rest, while objects in motion tend to stay in motion.  It always takes more energy to GET something moving than to keep it moving.  Overcoming this ‘coefficient of friction’ is the key.  On this episode of AppleBell Radio, we dig into some tactics that will help you to stop waiting and start moving.

We are also excited to announce the we are officially taking clients for personal coaching.  Our individualized programs are high-touch and designed for your specific goals.  We’ll help you with a complete wellness program that addresses nutrition, fitness, and mindfulness.  If you’re interested in learning more, just email us at: Jeni@applebellwellness.com to set up a quick exploratory call.

AppleBell Radio EP015 – Why Tough Guys (and Gals) Need Yoga

For this week’s episode, we have a very special guest to help us explore all the reasons that tough guys, tough gals, and really all of us need more yoga.  Our friend, Ben Bunn shares his journey to finding, and eventually adopting, a regular yoga practice and what it has done for his physical and mental health.

We cover a ton of ground and dive into the various benefits of spending some dedicated time on the mat. Like many athletes, the three of us sought yoga as way to stretch, rehab injuries, and gain better range of motion.  However, we all quickly realized that the practice offers SO much more…like the ability to focus, slow down, and de-stress.

We had a lot of fun recording this episode and it definitely comes across.  We know you’ll enjoy it!  We really appreciate Ben for joining us on the show.  He’s a great Instagram follow, so check him out @coachbunny and @cigarcitycrossfit.

AppleBell Radio EP012 – Define Your Own Rules for Success

Success is a very tricky word.  What does it even mean?  As it turns out, simply adopting others’ definitions of success can be a little problematic.  For this week’s episode, we have a special guest, our friend Garrett Cathcart, to help us tackle this very important topic.

If we know one for sure, it is that words like happiness and success do not have universal definitions – they depend greatly on your individual goals and values.  In this podcast, we share some personal stories about our search for ‘success’.  Unfortunately, we can’t offer much of a formula, because ultimately, life is your game to play and YOU get to make the rules.

After listening, we’d encourage you to take some time to think about how you currently define success.  Have you ever given it much thought?  If not, you might be surprised at what you come up with.  Regardless, at least now you’ll be making conscious decisions that are aligned with your values.  Even if that doesn’t change much, adding some awareness and intention to your decision-making process is always a good thing!

We’d love to hear how you define success, and how you reached your definition.  Send us your thoughts!

AppleBell Radio EP011 – The Power of Growth Mindset

It is absolutely possible to create real, positive changes in our lives across every dimension.  Not only can we lose weight and get stronger, we can also change we way think and behave.  Understanding ‘growth mindset’ is the key to unlocking our true potential.  For too long, we’ve been told to accept certain traits and characteristics as fixed – it’s just the way we are.  Not necessarily!

On this episode of AppleBell Radio, we debunk the fixed mindset and share some strategies for improving your life physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Adopt the growth mindset and the world will really open up for you!

If you’re looking for a little more on this concept, you should also check out our blog post on The Truth About Talent.

AppleBell Radio EP010 – Why Boundaries Matter

Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen a really powerful trend toward embracing words like authenticity and vulnerability.  This is great news.  People like Brene Brown and Esther Perel have helped us to adopt a new framework and re-think what it means to be truly connected.  However, one component of the equation is often overlooked – Boundaries.

Whether it is resisting the temptation to overshare, learning to say no, or addressing inappropriate behavior, our ability to set clear boundaries is the key to unlocking the most generous and compassionate selves.

In this week’s episode, we get into some ways to identify and set boundaries in your personal and professional life.  If you’re the type that loves to help others and is driven to do ‘more’, chances are, you could use some help with boundaries.
