Discomfort isn’t intense pain, but just the feeling you get when you’re out of your comfort zone. Eating vegetables for many people, for example, brings discomfort. So does sitting in meditation, or sitting with a hard task in front of you, or saying No to people, or exercising. (Of course, different people are uncomfortable with different things, but you get the idea.)
And most people don’t like discomfort. They run from it. It’s not fun, so why do it?
The problem is that when you run from discomfort all the time, you are restricted to a small zone of comfort, and so you miss out on most of life. On most of the best things in life, in fact. And you become unhealthy, because if eating healthy food and exercising is uncomfortable, then you go to comfort foods and not moving much. Being unhealthy, unfortunately, is also uncomfortable, so then you seek distractions from this (and the fact that you have debt and too much clutter, etc.) in food and entertainment and shopping (as if spending will solve our problems!) and this in turn makes things worse.

People ask me what I put in my green juices, so I have decided to start sharing my ingredient lists. Most recently, I used parsley in a new recipe. Parsley comes in different varieties, but the two most popular types are curly parsley and flat (also called Italian) parsley.
The herb, now frequently sprinkled atop soups and meat dishes, was historically chewed to freshen breath. It’s also the main ingredient in tabbouleh, a traditional Middle Eastern salad and is widely used in diabetic-friendly recipes for its ability to lower blood sugar. The benefits are a joy to read about because parsley is so easy to find.
Although many people use parsley as a garnish, I keep parsley on hand for to add to my green juice recipes. Juicing parsley releases vitamins K, A and C. According to the National Institute of Health, parsley also has antimicrobial effects that can help keep yeast from overpopulating in the digestive tract. Parsley is also an anti-carcinogen, a potent diuretic and should not be juiced in large quantities daily. Just a little will do the job for a while!
Pick an organic version of parsley, if you can find it. Before juicing, remember to check with your physician if you are pregnant. Pregnant women have special needs and should always consult their doctor before embarking on a juice diet or adding an unfamiliar food to their plate.
Here is the juice blend I made with parsley. This recipe makes about four 8 ounce glasses of juice (if you want to share), or 2 tall tumblers full.
- a juicer (some prefer a blender)
- 1 fistful of parsley
- 2 yellow Bananas
- 1 bag of celery
- 1 small carton of organic blueberries
- 1 handful of pineapple chunks
- 1 small bunch of organic kale
First, set up your juicer or blender. If it is a juicer like mine, here is a tip for faster cleanup:
Line the catchment bin with a grocery store bag to catch all of the ground up remains of the fruits and vegetables. That way, you can just toss out the bag when you are done instead of scrubbing the bin.
Place a large bowl in your sink. Turn the faucet on and let it run until the bowl is 3/4 full. Tip two splashes of vinegar into the bowl and swish the water around with your hand. One by one, rinse your parsley, celery, blueberries,and kale in the bowl.
Snap the larger vegetables with your fingers. Pop them into your juicer (saving the banana’s for last since they can coat the blades). Juice on medium speed. Stir your juice, pour over ice and enjoy!
I’ll be sure to share more Juicy Details, soon.
“In what areas can coaching help me?”
Transitioning to a healthier lifestyle can involve many things including making changes to the way we eat, drink, think, sleep and exercise. My judgement-free consultations help clients make sustainable progress toward their goal for a more well-rounded existence.
Achieving healthier interpersonal relationships is the goal of this type of session. Building self-esteem, facilitating healthier communication between co-parenting adults, teaching the art of self preservation, and providing guidance in setting up personal boundaries so as not to be used or abused by family or friends are some of the ways in which one-on-one coaching can be the catalyst to realigning your relationship goals to benefit the number one priority – you.”
At a career crossroads, the right conversations can mean the difference between going for a dream or giving up on a dream. Take advantage of one-to-one coaching sessions to provide career insights, information, resources and action plans to help you negotiate a deal, justify a raise, setup a new way to work, update a resume, sharpen up a cover letter, pursue a new venture or get your foot in the door of a new industry.
