9 Reasons to Eat Your Radishes!


9 Reasons to Eat Your Radishes!
EatYourradishes-359031

Do you know the power of Radishes?

I didn’t until about a month ago.
I came down with a gnarly sore throat and got to flexing my fingers to search for foods to help with my ailment…

Up popped articles about Radishes.  I thought, “Radishes? Really?”
And so began my road to a SUPER speedy recovery!

Your Body Is Trying To Tell You Something

I should mention that I had literally purchased some radishes a few days before I came down with my sore throat.

Two things to note:

I rarely get sick and I’d never bought radishes prior to this purchase.

Why am I saying this?

To remind you that your body is a SUPER computer, ready to heal itself when given half the chance.  Your body is your best doctor, if you’ll just listen to what it is telling you.

What You Crave Is What You Need

Screen shot 2014-10-06 at 1.37.42 PM

We often hear the word “craving” and think BAD.  But I’m here to tell you that cravings are not good, nor bad; they are merely signals to tell you that you are lacking something and your body needs it.

Example:  You’ve just worked out.  All of a sudden, you want chips.  It’s not the chips (or potatoes, rather) that you crave… usually, it is the salt, because of the loss of salt through your sweat.

I am a highly intuitive Being and have learned to listen to my body with extreme clarity.  My “random” craving to buy Radishes were merely a signal and preventative measure given to me by my body.  I think to myself, if I’d not trusted myself, my sore throat would have taken me down far longer than just 24 hours.

Yup, only 24 hours, thanks to the 3 R’s: Radishes, Rest and Relaxation! 😉

How To Cure A Sore Throat

Now you know just one of the reasons to eat your Radishes.  Sore Throats are handled with ease with Radishes (and they also help to clear out your sinuses).

Top Health Coach Success Tip: “10 Benefits of Vegetarianism”


Top Health Coach Success Tip: “10 Benefits of Vegetarianism”

fruit-basket-396622_1280

Do you want a lil’ pep in your step? Would you like to contribute to a healthy planet? Do you want to save money on your grocery bill?

A vegetarian diet has several benefits when properly balanced and nutrient dense. However, just because a diet is “meat-free” does not necessarily mean it is healthy. Benefits can be negated when a healthy lifestyle does not follow suit. In contrast, a diet containing meat is not always unhealthy. For example, eating a salad isn’t enough if you are sedentary, frequently enjoying high-fat junk foods, or smoking cigarettes! Consuming an adequate amount of calories and eating a variety of healthy food is just as important.

If you’re looking to add more vegetarianism into your lifestyle, check out the 10 benefits below to motivate you!

PS: Note: Vegetarian diets may not be for everyone, it’s all about bio-individuality, the concept that “no one diet fits all”!

BETTER MOOD

Research reveals information suggesting vegetarians may be happier than their meat-eating counterparts. In fact, it was found that vegetarians had lower scores on depression tests and mood profiles when compared to fish and meat-eaters.1

DISEASE FIGHTING

When done right, lactovegetarian, lacto-ovo-vegetarian, or vegan diets are naturally low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol and have been shown to reduce heart disease risk. Epidemiologic data has shown vegetarians suffer less disease caused by a modern Western diet (e.g., coronary heart disease, hypertension, obesity, type 2 diabetes, diet-related cancers, diverticulitis, constipation, and gall stones, among several others).2

This can be attributed to a higher intake in fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants, flavonoids, and carotenoids.

LEAN FIGURE

Vegetarians typically weigh less as a result of a diet comprised of fewer calories in the form of grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.3

LESS TOXICITY

Foodborne illnesses, antibiotics, bacteria, parasites, and chemical toxins are more common in commercial meat, poultry, and seafood when compared with plant foods, (particularly organic fruits and vegetables).

SAVING THE PLANET

A plant-based diet is better for the planet as it requires less energy and farmland to feed a vegetarian.

SIGHT

Vegetarians tend to have better vision and less macular degeneration.4

MONEY SAVING

Plant foods tend to be less expensive, except for a few delicacies, saving on overall costs.

BETTER ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

While most active individuals focus on protein intake, they should be advised that, when done right, a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, and vitamin and mineral-rich vegetarian diet may be optimal for sports performance. Conflicting studies exist, but the number of world-class vegetarian athletes continues to rise.

SUPPORTING ANIMAL RIGHTS

Ethical reasons can be a consideration when choosing a vegetarian diet.

LONGEVITY

Vegetarians have been found to enjoy longer and healthier lives when compared to meat-eaters.5

7 DJ Success Tips To Make Your Gigs Double


“7 DJ Success Tips To Make Your Gigs Double”

dj-433746_1280

Question:
Are you getting the number of gigs you want (and deserve)?

Whether you are just starting out or you are a seasoned veteran, you know DJing is no longer a profession of the “elite few”.  With the advent of CD turntables and laptop DJing, it seems like anyone can be a DJ these days, or at least call themselves one.

But if you’re a newbie, or if your profession is at a plateau, how do you get more gigs? And more over, how do you make your gigs double when you have them?

There’s no formula, but you can follow some basic guidelines if you’re looking to turn your DJ hobby into your profession, and make your profession as a DJ more profitable. So without further ado, here are the 7 DJ Success Tips To Make Your Gigs Double…

1. Know your Fundamentals, Know your History

Are you looking to get rich quick, or do you want to become a master of your Craft?
Do you know the fundamentals? Do you know the history of DJing? Do you know the history of music?

I’ve been playing music since I was 6 years old.  Over two decades ago, the flute became my first instrument.  However, I grew up listening to Alt.Rock (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, RHCP), Punk (Fugazi, Op Ivy) and started going to Raves/House Parties in my teens… I also used to freestyle rhyme over House beats in college.

By the time I decided to DJ, I knew the history of music from classical to house music at the CORE of my Being.

You don’t have to know everything (and I surely am learning something new every day!), but the point is that I lived it and then decided I wanted to DJ in 2003.  So,

  • Know what you love to listen to and want to play.  Make sure you also know the history!
  • Study your favorite DJs to understand sonically how DJing works and how/why they move you.
  • Learn to beat match to understand how to “see” with your ears.  I learned on vinyl.  DJing isn’t just about auto-sync and watching a screen, it’s about being able to see with your ears, and listen with your eyes via watching the crowd.

2. Know why you want to DJ (BONUS: Know your end game)

When you decided to DJ, did you know why you wanted to do it? On that note, did you come up with an End Game plan?

For example, do you want to be a mobile DJ and “retire” as a manager for DJs?  Do you want to be a club DJ and “retire” as a producer for TV/film?  Wherever you are in your DJing hobby or profession, take a moment to create a plan for where you’re going.  It’ll help you know what opportunities to say yes to, and save you time on your road to success.  (Hint: think longevity if you’re truly in it for the love!)

3. Know what makes you unique

Do you know your Unique Selling Proposition? When I first started DJ in 2003, what made me unique was that I was also a singer-songwriter and even had opened for Nina Sky (“Move Your Body”).  I knew music, and I lived music, and people wanted to book me because of it.  Then I went to, and graduated from the Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, CA, and by 2005, I also could say that I had trained and learned from the best, including Tre Hardson of The Pharcyde.  Flash forward to 2014, I am unique because I’m an Award-Winning DJ and Intuitive Health Coach.   So, what makes you unique? (Bonus: How to find your USP) (Double bonus: Be nice.  It’s really not “cool” to be a jerk DJ 🙂 ).

4. Know your audience

This will change over time, but you should know your core values so that even as your audience changes, you will know who YOU are at the core.  My audience is diverse and so are the parties I have played over the years.  But what stays consistent is my passion for House music, and my eclectic taste as a true audiophile.  Another thing that stays consistent is my audience loves art and loves music, just like me! Your audience should grow with you, as you develop and become more authentic. Which brings me to #5…

5. Know your music

Kinda going back to #1, you really gotta know your music.  These days, it’s not just about knowing one genre.  The world is a global music community, and to be able to know when to flip the switch and cut into a throwback or jazz-influenced tune, even if you are playing EDM, is to know how to get booked and continually get booked!   Plus, when you know your music, you will know the importance of remixes/mashups and how they can create the perfect mood for your gigs. Speaking of which,

6. Know how to produce/compose/sing (Be a creator)…

DJing isn’t just about digging anymore, though it is definitely still a part of the craft. Digging, or finding gems that no one else has, is an art unto itself; similarly, creating songs that no one has, is your ticket to ride!

Keep in mind, you don’t have to produce/compose the music that you DJ.  I personally have a niche with producing independent artists, and for composing for independent film and live production.  What I create is not always what I play, but it has still allowed me to have my music heard, while staying creative.  (Bonus tip: collaborations are gateways to success!)

7. BONUS TIP: Remember #1

You can have a successful career as a DJ and get a lot of gigs being authentic.  You don’t have to follow what everyone else is doing, but you DO have to know what it is you want.  Oh, and be willing to work at it.  Because no matter how good you look, if you just pretend to play with dials and knobs, sooner or later, you’ll be made:
