    Can a Little Stress Be Helpful? [Episode 21]

    Can a Little Stress Be Helpful? [Episode 21]

    Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 21 We know what stress does to our body - sickness, systemic and hormonal problems, not to mention generally feeling like a basket case. But do you know what it does to your brain? There are big changes that happen to our brains under stress that hinder our progress - I'm talking all about those changes and how they hold us back. I hear from a lot of people who swear by a little stress to get them moving. But there's a fine line between a little push for motivation and chronic, bad for you stress. This week, I'm looking at why that is, what's really going on and how to get that motivation without tipping over into the chronic stress arena. Some stress is completely involuntary and we have no say in controlling it. But there's a large amount of everyday stress that we all can control pretty easily. So we're talking about different kinds of stress - what you can control and what you can't. Are you ready to put the mind, body and soul back into your health routine? Do you want to be in a small group of like-minded people, learning how to make a healthy lifestyle easy - and long term? Email me for more information on my new class, The Health Mindset Fix: 101.

    What Getting the Flu Taught Me About Health

    What Getting the Flu Taught Me About Health

    Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 20   Is there a sick mindset? This week I came face to face with just that. Getting sick is frustrating. I think that sentiment would even have bi-partisan support. But it happens because, life happens. And sometimes we find ourselves tired, cranky, feverish and snotty. That was me for the past few weeks. But, as I do, I learned from being sick. I learned not just about health, but also about limiting factors that stand in the way of you and your highest success in health, wealth and life. But don't take my word for it - hear my take what The Big Leap author Gay Hendricks says about the Upper Limit Problem. We all know we should rest and drink lots of fluids when we're sick, so why do we typically ignore this very sound advice? I've found there a reason (beyond germs) that we get sick in the first place- and it has to do with our mindset. Join me today for some pretty fascinating information on the sick mindset, and being much healthier because of it. Are you ready to put the mind, body and soul back into your health routine? Do you want to be in a small group of like-minded people, learning how to make a healthy lifestyle easy - and long term? Email me for more information on my new class, The Health Mindset Fix: 101.

    In this episode, you will learn- -Why we seem to willfully ruin a streak of healthy eating with junk food - even though we feel amazing while eating nutritious food. -The real reason we try to push through being sick (it has nothing to do with schedules or responsibilities). -How getting the flu is tied to your net worth. -The fascinating reason your mindset can literally make you sick.

    The Sneaky Reason Why We Return to Old Habits

    The Sneaky Reason Why We Return to Old Habits

    Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 19 When we want to make lifestyle changes to get healthier, there's nothing more frustrating that falling back into old habits. We all have them. The ones that keep us on the couch instead of the gym, or keep us giving into cravings instead of opting for something healthier. Those old habits are frustrating because we know they push back that day that we arrive at our natural weight and live an effortless healthy life. Those habits are ultra annoying because we know we don't want them in our lives anymore. So what gives? This week I'm talking about the very simple explanation of why we fall back into old habits: our brains crave the familiar. Even if the familiar isn't what you really want. Annoying, right? Learn why that is, how we can lessen the draw back to old habits and how we can use this ancient defense mechanism to our benefit when we are adding things to our lives we know we want. We can always use these little quirks in our brains to our advantage. Lifestyle changes can happen - and it doesn't have to be hard. Are you tired of watching other people lose weight but nothing happens for you? Do you have a question about how to make health and weight loss "click" for you? Don't be shy!  Send your questions to contact@andreahansoncoaching.com
    In this episode, you will learn- -The very simple, un-dramatic reason why we fall back into old habits. -Exactly how to ease into change in a way that actually feels good. -The one thing you need to address before making any changes to your life. -What makes something familiar and the real reason why our brains love it so much.   Available now at your favorite bookstores!

    Stop Carrying the Weight of Your Diagnosis [HMP016]

    Stop Carrying the Weight of Your Diagnosis [HMP016]

    Health Mindset Podcast, Episode 16 This is the first in a three-part series of podcasts where I talk about the first three chapters in my book, Stop Carrying the Weight of Your MS. In this week's episode, I talk about the behind the scenes of Chapter 1 and then read the entire chapter. Scroll down to learn how to win a 15 minute mini coaching session with me! (Over $60.00 value). Learn why this book isn't only for people with MS. The character in this chapter is modeled after me and my struggle with weight loss when I was first diagnosed, but it goes so much farther than that. **Important note: MS can be synonymous with suffering and heartache. Not in this book. You will not find any negativity or helplessness here. In fact it's the exact opposite. You will find empowerment, freedom and comfort in knowing the answers are so close to you. (Yes - I did feel that I needed to state that!) Why being in the age of information and having so many "guru's" at our fingertips is counter productive. And the real way to create a lifestyle change, not simply a diet for the season. If you have questions you want me to answer, don't be shy! This was so much fun I will definitely do more Q&A podcasts. Send questions to contact@andreahansoncoaching.com In this episode, you will learn- -Why creating a plan you love for getting healthy seems impossible- and how to change that. -The truth of why having someone tell us what to do doesn't work long term - and why it's good news. -The real reason you're feeling disconnected from finding the solution to your health (it's not what you think). Available for pre-order at your favorite bookstores! Barnes & Noble Amazon Books A Million GET IN ON THE CONTEST! Send in your questions and I'll pick a person at random to receive a complimentary 15 minute mini coaching session with me.
