    How To Get Your Kids To Love Exercise

    Kids should learn to love fitness from an early age. This means instilling in them a passion for exercise and eating healthy. It will be up to you to do that and movement education specialist Rae Pica notes how early childhood should include lots of fitness activities as it is “the best time to establish good habits so that kids seek and enjoy exercise instead of avoiding it.” Once you get your kids to love fitness, they will reap the benefits much earlier. The most obvious benefit is a healthier body. But there is more, as fitness allows for a more holistic development. Additionally, exercise and good general fitness helps improve their mental health.

    Best Tips for Learning How to Say No

    For many of us, saying no is difficult. Women, in particular, are trained from childhood to be good, unselfish, and compliant and to take responsibility for keeping other people happy. Also, depending on the generation that you are born in, your cultural background, or the family beliefs that you were raised with all have an impact on how we view saying no. When you consistently take responsibility for others’ happiness, the chances are that the following things will happen:
    your feelings of self-worth become dependent on other people
    you end up with little or no boundaries
    people expect you to be there for them all the time
    you become exhausted, stressed, ....

    5 Steps to Putting Yourself First

    Putting yourself first is not an optional extra! It’s essential to avoid burnout and keep yourself happy and healthy.

Here are some things to keep in mind while building the healthy habit of putting yourself first.

    4 Ways to Deal with Guilt When Setting Boundaries

    So, you’ve worked hard to set boundaries, put yourself first, and practiced saying no. No, you can’t work late again tonight. No, you can’t drive your teenager to the bus stop. No, you don’t want to go out this weekend. No, you can’t lend them some money. You set some healthy boundaries, you politely stated your own needs, and you stuck to your guns. But you don’t feel as good as you thought you would. In fact, you feel guilty. You might feel selfish or mean. You might even be tempted to go back to apologize and offer your help. What if that person really needed your help? Maybe you shouldn’t have let them down. Maybe you were unreasonable ....

    Key Elements for Creating Healthy Boundaries

    If you truly want to be your best you, to have a happy and healthy life, you need to learn how to set boundaries. Boundaries are being clear about what your limits are, and they are necessary to ensure you don’t get overwhelmed by the demands of other people.

    Reasons That You Need To Put Yourself First

    How does it feel when you read articles saying you should start to put yourself first? What does the voice in your head say? Chances are it might feel a bit uncomfortable or even wrong. So many of the messages from society and during your childhood are about putting others first, being good, and unselfish. Look back over your life and see how often you have been expected to drop everything for someone else, let someone else go first, or have the bigger cookie. Do you feel entitled to say no or to quarantine your ‘me-time’ whether it’s going to the gym or having a massage or an early night? You might be feeling overwhelmed by the demands of others, or even resentful ....

  • Our family program

    I started training in martial arts because of my son Stephen. It was so much fun and I wish that he had continued to train with me all of the way to black belt. Eventhough he did not train very long, it was time with him I will never forgot. In my search to find something to help him with the peer pressure he was experiencing, I found something that I love to do and love to teach others to do. We have several families that train with us and I will be posting the videos of the Bruhmueller family and why they like it. ....

  • Resilience


    I was researching some topics for us to cover at our Teen Summit in August and I came across this article by John Cowan that discussed a topic that most of us don't think about when it comes to preparing our kids for life-Resilience. Check out what he had to say here:

    The fifth challenge for parents today is to give our kids resilience. “One thing that we can guarantee our young people, sadly, is that bad things will happen to good people. We can’t tell them that life is fair – it isn’t. We have to acknowledge that randomness and chaos happen in the universe. The most important gifts we can give our kids are the skills, the knowledge and the ....
