|How to Succeed with your New Years Resolutions|
This time of year, many of us are dutifully attempting to achieve New Year’s Resolutions – goals we have set to make some form of change in our lives. Whatever those resolutions may be, some will succeed and others will only partially succeed at attaining these goals.
How can you improve your own chances of succeeding at these, or any, goals? The answer is based on motivation. Understanding what motivates us can help to establish how to achieve our goals. Different people are motivated very differently. Fortunately, there are insightful clues in the Personality Profile for each of the 25 Body Types about how we are motivated to succeed.
What does body type have to do with motivation? Quite a bit. In fact, there is a section in the Profile & Diet booklet for each body type labelled “Motivation”. If you already know your body type, look at your motivating factors below and take them into consideration, both when setting and pursuing your goals.
For example, the Adrenal body type is motivated by excitement, competition, visible success and external validation. An Adrenal will more likely succeed at a goal when it results in a visible achievement that others will notice and comment positively about – particularly when they are competing against others, and when there is some element of thrill (“adrenal rush”) associated with it.
If you don’t already know your body type, and one of the statements below sounds “like you”, that may be a clue about your body type:
Discovering your body type also gives you in-depth, specific nutritional and weight management information, as well as optimal exercise and even core emotional issues.
To discover your body type, and receive the ebook including your personality profile, take the women’s body type test or men’s body type test.
|Are You a Brain Body Type?|
Is "being right" a high priority for you? Do you like being in control (because if you're not, things fall apart)? Do you collect all available information before making a decision?
Then you may be a Brain body type.
Celebrities with Brain body type include Meryl Streep, Edward Norton, Jerry Seinfeld, Andre Agassi, Uma Thurman, Sting, Jeff Bezos, Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Kevin O'Leary, and Charlize Theron.
Are you a Brain body type? You might be, if:
If this describes you, you could be a Brain body type.
Men with the Brain body type may be short or tall, with moderately broad shoulders and a dominant, high forehead. They have a magnetic face and deep, piercing or compelling eyes. They have a proportionate torso with solid musculature, and easily attain muscular definition.
Brain body type women have a dominant forehead and face, with piercing or commanding eyes, and slender legs. Weight gain begins in the breasts, upper hips, waist, lower abdomen and upper thighs.
Just as the brain is the information storage center of the body, Brain body types collect and store data. Brain types are noted for intensely gathering information in detail, as they like to have all possible knowledge on a subject before making a decision. Brain types know the value of doing everything right. This desire to do everything right leads them to be very precise in their speech and actions.
Personality, Relationships & Career
Brain body types are very conscientious and inclined towards precision and accuracy. They are typically independent and self-directed, and tend to think more creatively and less conventionally than others. They are driven by a need to be correct, and will often evaluate the results of their decisions in order to learn from them. They are overly concerned with making mistakes or appearing stupid. When fatigued, Brain types have a difficult time making the simplest decisions. Pampering and nurturing the self helps Brain body types connect their feelings and intellect.
The primary nature of Brain body types is Physical / Mental. (Read more about the Points of Connection.)
Exercise is optional for Brain types, as the primary benefit is physical – redistributing energy from the head to the body. Walking, aerobics, tennis, biking, or moderate weight training are all good choices. Exercise for Brain types should be fun or nurturing – such as a meditative walk. Brain types have a naturally solid musculature, and can easily attain muscular definition with minimal exercise.
For more on exercising specifically for your body type, see the August 2017 Newsletter.
Nutrition, Diet & Weight Management
Brain body types benefit from avoiding protein before 11:00 AM, and making lunch the largest meal of the day. Organic tofu is an excellent protein source for them. Brain is one of the body types that can have fruit any time of the day (when their system is not stressed), and daily fruits and vegetables are beneficial for them. Smaller meals with snacks in between are support for Brain types. Brain types are especially sensitive to chemicals, so organic foods are essential, especially chicken and turkey.
For weight loss, limit dense proteins and breads. Eat breakfast at 10:00, lunch at 2:00, and dinner at 6:00-7:00. Have no protein before 11:00, and exercise 40 minutes daily. For Brain body types weight gain/loss is largely mental, so a mindset of being thin is helpful.
Brain IS of the body types that can thrive on a vegetarian diet. For more about body type and vegetarianism, see the February 2018 Newsletter.
Complete nutritional information including food lists for the Brain body type can be found on the Brain Quick Reference Card.
Core Emotional Issues
Each of the 25 body types encounters certain core emotional issues or lessons to overcome in life. For Brain, these are:

Motivation Essential Oil
for Achieving New Years Resolutions
Achieve your New Years resolutions with Motivation. Motivation was formulated to promote feelings of action and accomplishment when diffused, providing positive energy to help overcome feelings of fear and procrastination.
All too often, we start out with a bang armed with our good intentions, only to get stuck in Inertia. It takes Courage to break out of Inertia, and Motivation to take you there. The way to shift Inertia to Courage is “I am propelled forward.” The area of the body where Courage is stored is a point called Courage, which is located 3” superior & 1” lateral to the umbilicus or navel.
Motivation is a blend of Roman Chamomile, Spruce, Ylang Ylang, and Lavender essential oils. It can be diffused, directly inhaled, added to bath water (2-4 drops), or applied directly on feet (big toe), chest, nape of the neck, behind ears, wrists, or around navel. Another way to diffuse is to put 4-8 drops on a cotton ball and locate on vents.
With the recently launched Oils Lookup, I am able to include the latest emotions and oils as they come up, rather than having you wait until the next edition of Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils.
To learn more about the use of Essential Oils to release emotions, refer to Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils.
If you have an edition older than 2019, Addendums for these editions are available to bring you current.
