Let’s face it. We are living in a Golden Age of haters. TV, radio, movies are all chock full of conflict and negativity.

And then there is the capital city of Haterdelphia, the Internet. Which is basically a breeding ground for a super species of negative people who feed off of making people upset.

Quick tip- If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t put it on the Internet.

So here’s is what I came up with to combat all the stress and negativity that we are surrounded with.

A Negativity Detox Program

One of our most successful programs is the 21 Day Belly Blast program that detoxes your body of processed and junk foods. That works great, but if you are stressed you will not be able to lose fat.

Chances are very good that you have a lot of stress in your life right now.  It is just the world we live in.

Over the next 10 weeks I will offer one challenge every Monday for the week. The purpose of these challenges will be to purge you of the negative influences in your life and replace them with new positive thoughts and actions.

To many of you this may sound silly, I understand. But if you are willing to trust me and just give it a try, you will be amazed at how much better you will feel.

First Week Challenge

Might as well start with one of the toughest ones first. When you are riding in the car this week, do not listen to the radio, talk on the cell phone, text, or anything other than drive.

A lot of the stress we have in our lives is from sensory overload. Stop what you are doing right now and just pay attention to all that is going on around you right now. AC blowing, radio on, people talking, lights flashing, etc…

There is a lot going on! You may not notice it, but your body does and all of that adds up. Give your body a break.

Now if you have to handle work or kid related things in the car, I understand. Do what you gotta do, but stick to the plan when you can.

The goal is to get 30 minutes/day of quiet time. You can do that at home or anywhere else as well. The car just seems to be the easiest place for most people.

Use that time to plan out your day or week, plan your meals for the day, pray, meditate, problem solve, or whatever you deem appropriate.

You will be amazed at how much clearer your thoughts are without Ke$ha blasting in the background. That 30 minutes a day of focused time can make a huge impact on your life.

I'm doing this plan right along with you. So if you need some support and someone to keep you accountable reach out to me. I will be struggling just like you!

I am looking forward to the next 10 weeks with you, glad you are on board.
