How To Replace Madness With Magic | Elaine Gibson

The new year is here – a time filled with hopes, dreams and promises of what lies ahead.

As an Extraordinary Lifestyle Designer, my intention is to take you from madness to magic, without the hassle.

Many of the men and women I speak with feel confused and exhausted as they attempt to up their health and peak performance. Many even place their personal health goals last while tending to the needs of everything and everyone else. It can sometimes feel like a lost cause before you even get started. Great news! You do not ever have to compromise your health and personal goals.

As an Extraordinary Lifestyle Designer, my intention is to empower you to create: Extraordinary Health, Extraordinary Business, Extraordinary Life . . . even if you have never done it before!

It is amazing how just a few gentile, easy activities can have a huge impact.

Some of my favorite healthy tips are…

Ditch and Switch. Ditch the refined foods and switch them with healthier options. For example, instead of using refined white flour and/or sugar, use almond flour or coconut sugar instead. Look for sprouted options. There are many alternatives to choose from, and you can most definitely find choices you will love – and I bet you nobody will even notice!

Fresh Herbs and Spices. You can really dress up a meal by adding fresh herbs and spices. It’s incredibly affordable and simple to keep a small, fresh herb garden growing in your kitchen window. My favs are mint, kelp and dill. There are incredible health properties in many of the herbs and spices we use and love. They are beneficial for our health and a strong immune system. Cinnamon and turmeric are very popular. Experiment and find a place for them in your recipes anywhere you can!

Use Different Plateware. Staying on track with my health goals is getting creative with portion control. Instead of using dinner-sized plates, which we tend to fill, use smaller plates. Use a mid-sized saucer or salad plate for your dinner plate, and then go back for seconds if needed. A lot of the overeating that we do is mindless, habitual eating because it’s in front of us and we were taught to clean our plates. Taking this temptation away helps tremendously, and you’ll very quickly learn how much you need to feel satisfied – I guarantee it is less than you think.

Having sleepovers with our granddaughter Devon, is one of my favorite activities. For years our evenings are filled with bubble baths, facials and snuggles. Mornings begin with hot chocolate (almond milk and cacao powder) followed by pancakes made with organic sprouted grain mix and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Nevin and I cherish this time. Knowing that we are incorporating best practices provides us with peace of mind alongside our gratitude.

These simple tips, will help you look and feel better than ever. Finding your own personal balance will take trial and error while empowering you with behaviors that will soon become second nature. This is where the magic begins. This is your Extraordinary Soul!
