The Key to the Body and Health You Desire!
Greetings from Costa Rica!
Iâ€™m currently in Playa Flamingo, on the Pacific Ocean in Northern Costa Rica. Playa Flamingo is known for itâ€™s quiet beaches, abundant sunlight, and was rumored to be a romantic getaway spot for Richard Burton and Liz Taylor many, many years ago (we can see their reported home from where we are staying). Iâ€™m blessed enough to be spending the first half of March in Costa Rica. The motto here is â€œPura Vidaâ€ or â€œPure Lifeâ€ and quite accurately describes the free-spirited and joyful nature of Costa Rican life.
Costa Rica is a lovely place to go to remember how joyful life can be. Each year we come here to set our intentions and our focus for the forthcoming year. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life and embraced in a beautiful land where the mindset is one of appreciating life’s riches, it is easy to let the mind go from what “has to” be done to what we really, truly want in our lives.
In reality though, there are ample opportunities all throughout the year for such focus and clarifying. The New Year, one’s birthday, and different life-changing events often give us opportunity to reassess, evaluate, and come back on course.
This month, we will delve into the mind and explore how our thoughts and attitudes affect our health, weight, and well-being, offer a recipe of typical Tico fare, and look at how you can use your mind to make exercise a joy, not a punishment!
