— Space is Limited! — 

Attendees will receive recipes, the How-To’s for a Gluten-Free/FODMAP living protocol, a set of the BeFree! Life Affirming Cards and a Self-Test

Join Jenny Bair as she shares “What the FODMAP?!”

No, it’s not something the young kids are saying; it’s a diet that many try when they have gone Gluten Free but still are not feeling stellar.

If you live with typical IBS symptoms, want to eat low in sugar (fructose), eat low/lactose free, lower in yeast, then this diet may be for you!

Betty Murray of Living Well has shared the science behind the diet but Jenny Bair, MHE, of Living Well Dallas is going to help you logistically get your head around it and spell out the how-to’s for the everyday living.

She’ll share her top ten list of products that she uses as go-to’s, she’ll give you a summer meal and some snack recipes to take home with you, and just give you hope for feeling better and better each day.

Jenny is an expert in how to make lasting changes in your life and she loves navigating the unseen space in between your ears to figure out how to “Work with yourself and not against yourself.”

So, get yourself and your friends to this class. You’ll leave with a refreshed sense of enthusiasm of why you make all of the efforts to live the way you do with wonderful pay-off’s.

You’ll also get to  taste test sample some of the snackie type recipes in her new “What the FODMAP?” cookbook and she will keep you entertained as she is known for her honesty, interaction and  “life stand-up comedy” rolled into her speaking and teaching.

Be Free Spirited Living

“I refresh my mind, body and spirit by taking a walk in the sunshine.”

From Jenny Bair:

I designed this Be Free! system starting with the Life Affirming Cards of 52 Weeks/365 Days to give people support for living life with some grace, ease, humor and fun using positive affirmations with A-C-T-I-O-N oriented tips and techniques on the back of re-usable card secured with an open clasp ring.  Over 90% of visits to the doctor can be boiled down to too much STRESS.  So, what are most people seeking in their personal and professional realms? Relief from the pressures of life and too much work, tactics to relax, strategies to connect with others in a simple, easy way that doesn’t take too much effort or thought beyond the already over extended To-Do list. The Be Free – Ignite Your Life System can help you reach your goals in the well-being related areas of your life such as: Physical, Social, Mental, Emotional, Spiritual, Organizational, Cooking, Sensuality, Life Admin and Creativity & Fun.   There are several ways to capture the Be Free message each week.  You can use the system by yourself weekly and or daily by using the cards as a visual cue to create some “space” mentally each week within the presented topic.  Utilize the private Be Free social media group to gain some community support.  Engage in one on one coaching in person at Living Well Dallas, by phone or Skype.  Any combo of the above. Even though the cards say gluten free living; this program applies to any person living a busy lifestyle.  Many of our clients like to also engage in detoxing their bodies too by using the Cleanse book, written by Betty Murray, the co-author of Be Free cards and my business partner.

So, the bottom line is to seek support at the level in which you need it and the best way it fits into your day.  So, my encouragement is to watch the weekly video (on Facebook) and review the Be Free weekly tips to help keep a focus on your mind for the week. Use what works; leave the rest behind. I have the motto with my clients, “Work with yourself and not against yourself.” I hope you have a great week!

 

 

 So, Step 1: Watch the video on Facebook — www.facebook.com/livingwelldallas/videos/10153901645462892/?hc_location=ufi

Step 2:  Read over these quickie life ideas to see what might work for you

Step 3:  Try one or more of the ideas on for size and see what happens to your mood, your interactions with others and how you feel about yourself & goal at the end of the week

 

Some ideas to try for this week’s concept:

-Take a walk of 20 minutes or more to increase your brain neurotransmitters and your Vitamin D levels

-Color for 20 minutes in a coloring book or a mandala book to increase better mood and decision making abilities

-Create art for 20 minutes or more

-Decide on your shifts during the day and how you will implement short breaks to refresh, get grounded, relieve stress throughout the day in 5-15 minute increments

 

If you are ready to get started to Ignite Your Life by Being Free, then contact our office to purchase your set of cards at $17.99 or the Be Free-Cleanse Combo at $24.99 or start coaching to get some guidance for life, love and your career to point you in the direction of your dreams and goals. To work with Ms. Bair, MHE, COO, contact our office at 972-930-0260.  See more on our website at: www.livingwelldallas.com.  I’ll see you next week.

Are you STUCK in a moment?

Are you STUCK in a moment – emotionally, physically, mentally, or relationally? 
an article by Jenny Bair 

Then, get yourself together in a way that makes sense for you, your lifestyle, your goals.
Sometimes, we know what we should do but this knowledge NEVER equates to change. There’s just more to it; we’re more complex as human beings. I decided to share one of my recent personal experiences so you understand as a healthcare provider I’m human too and also on a journey of pursuing optimum well-being, self-acceptance and growth.  I’m hoping to help people who are stuck right now in some way in their lives to move forward and get the guidance and plan that they may need. I have two chronic conditions, one called Endometriosis and another one called Celiac Disease; they are “friends” in many ladies.  The Endometriosis causes for me pain pretty much everyday except about four days a month and it’s been that way on and off since I was twelve years old.  It wasn’t until I heard the words from one of my doctors, “possible cancerous growth” at the end of January that my intellectual brain and my emotional brain matched up in alignment with what needed to happen, another surgery.  I’m happy to report I’m cancer free and right now, for hopefully for another six months or more, virtually pain free (or at least compared to the state I was living in previously).  Looking back over the past 7 or so years since my last surgery I can see the pattern of small peaks, valleys, medium peaks, medium valleys, and the very dark valleys. I’m not sure how to convey the dark moments of physical pain that cause emotional pain except that they aren’t especially fun even when you’re working hard to do everything to keep the pain at bay, implementing every tool, technique, oil, supplement, dietary change, medication, affirmation…but you have to end up using prescribed pain meds and about 9-12 Ibruprofen against medical consult to just survive.  So, I sit in a place today of asking myself: “Why did I resist this surgery for so long?” “Why did I think work was more important than my own health?” “How did I work in consistent pain for 10-14 hour days; what was I telling myself?” “What worked in my pain management plan?” “What techniques do I want to keep? What do I need to let go?” “Who needs to be on my Medical-Wellness Advisory Board now to keep me in check with my goals, boundaries and my bloodwork?” There’s more questions that I roll around in my noggin as I’m a question girl but it made me think…how many of you are sitting there in your uncomfortable-ness, pain, depression, anxiety, lack of passion, un-motivation, stuck-ness that you just might need a healthy “kick in the pants” of a plan, LOVE, and support like I did? Thank God, I work with the team I work with.  My work family supported me all along the way in the joys that show up, successes that show up and even in the dark valley of sucking the joy right of your being.  I’m grateful. I’m bubbled over a big joy moment actually this Tuesday when I walked into the reception and there were four friends/clients who were smiling, hugging, giggling as we made our rounds with each other. One of the ladies said, “This is why I love coming here – to get loved on! It’s like a family here.”   A warm moment of joy slipped through and bathed my being; there’s one of my big motivating WHY moments when I hear those words.
There’s huge healing in all forms taking place behind the walls of Living Well and then like a moving force back into the world into their circles.
So, now about you. What questions roll around in your noggin that might lead you to believe it’s time to take care of yourself in a different way to reach your health/medical/wellness goals?
You absolutely don’t have to do this journey alone and learn from my stubbornness; DON’T wait when your intuition is telling you otherwise!
So, I reassure you; when you’re ready. It’s your TIME.
Make it a Beautiful Day!
Get your MOJO back!
Get your health going in a new direction!
Free your mind of what doesn’t serve you anymore!
Feel hopeful!
Be zesty, passionate and FULL!
