It's been awhile... I am hoping to make posts on a regular basis this year.
I won't play catch up now, let's just move forward.  I choose the photo of the koala bears for this page because they are able to balance their body weight on the branch, yet be relaxed enough to fall asleep! How amazing is that!? I took the photo when I went to Australia in June 2017. Seems so long ago. I need to return and spend more time. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone there and all of the millions of animals losing their lives to the fires. Absolutely heartbreaking!

So my life has been out of balance since before the holidays and I am working toward getting reorganized and back on track. What do you do when you go through a busy period and get out of balance juggling the demands of life? How do you get back on track? I'd love to hear your tips

For me, I am a paper and pen kind of person. There is power in simply writing things down on paper... making those 'to-do' lists and writing out a schedule that helps my brain to regroup and rebalance. I create project boards to help organize bigger tasks. Those help my brain to not have to try to remember everything that needs to get done and I'm better able to then focus on small daily tasks.
Signing off for now,
Be Well, Smile & May Your Gut Microbiome be Balanced! :)

<![CDATA[Exciting Times!!]]>Sun, 09 Sep 2018 01:56:41 GMThttp://coachjennifer.com/adventures-in-balancing/exciting-timesLong story short, February 2013 I had to have an esophagus surgery and ended up developing extreme food allergies which caused me to have delayed reaction eczema all over my body along with digestive symptoms immediately. This situation has gone on continually ever since with additional items added to the list of reactive allergens. After a few years I was finally diagnosed with Eosinophil Gastroenteritis and then after a few more years I was diagnosed with Mold Illness/C.I.R.S. (Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome).
  Fast forward to April 2018 when I was approached by a new company with completely all natural plant ingredient products based on the newest research of the Gut Brain Axis and our Gut Microbiome being our Second Brain. I knew exactly what this meant as I have been studying the brain for almost 20 years now. I signed up as an Independent Wellness Partner with the company and my husband, Jim, and I started taking the supplements, the Fundamentals Pack.  My exciting news is that a couple weeks ago I realized that my eczema rash is completely gone and when I think back to when I actually had a flare up, that was in mid June!! Healed up with NO scars even!! When you are used to having something wrong with your body I find you don't pay attention to it after a period of time, it becomes your new normal.   I couldn't believe it when the truth of my eczema being completely gone had clicked in, so I did what anyone would do, and eat something I know will give me a rash just to verify that the reaction was indeed gone. And... it is!!  This IS EXTREMELY exciting times!! Not just because of an extremely itchy rash all over my body, but because this means that the Fundamentals Pack is also healing my Gut!! I knew that my extreme stomach pains had gone away, though I still have other digestive symptoms. Healing is a process...visually being able to see one of the major symptoms of my gut issue heal up is proof that the products are also working on my insides! And that makes this time... EXCITING!!
