WHY YOU ARE - Your Universal Reality

A Roadmap to Discovering Who You Were Meant to Be

WE ALL HAVE CHOICES IN LIFE. When faced with adversity, we can either choose to sit back and let it damage us spiritually, emotionally, and physically, or we can take our power back and use it to become the person we were meant to be. WHY YOU ARE: Your Universal Reality gives you a roadmap of life's journeys and will help you address questions about the origins of your own unique coming into being.

PERSONAL WELLNESS CONSULTANT DIANNE McCAUGHEY, Ph.D., gives you the spiritual, intellectual, and psychological tools necessary to deal with the ups and downs of life including scientific research, personal experiences, and insights. Dr. McCaughey reveals how various methods of discipline and parenting cause us to be who we are and focuses on how genes, lifestyle, and our environment within the womb also create a piece to the puzzle of our existence. In addition, she discusses birth order, our gender, and the gender of our siblings to show the impact on our inner child, which is often "wounded." It is the healing of this inner child that paves the way to awakening. This passage toward wisdom and enlightenment is a dynamic, continual realization of oneself. WHY YOU ARE: Your Universal Reality will inspire and motivate you to seek your personal truth. Let the journey begin!

YOUNGER LONGER

Functional Fitness to Renew Your Strength, Balance, and Energy for Your Best Years Yet

Exercise should support the things you are really passionate about doing…for the rest of your life. Functional Fitness is a unique fitness methodology designed with long-term lifestyle needs in mind. In the end, it really comes down to helping you do the things you need to do the stuff you enjoy doing, and those things you dream or hope to do with greater ease, enjoyment, and less pain.

In Younger Longer, you’ll discover why “older adult” and “senior fitness” programs are simply not well designed and often rather dysfunctional with respect to the aging process. You’ll also discover our fitness programs are fun and don’t take a huge amount of time! Let’s be honest. You want a fitness program that is short, simple, and allows you to pursue life with more energy, strength, and passion.

Younger Longer contains proven techniques to decrease pain, increase your strength, and improve your balance at any age or functional level.

Personal Growth, Team Building, and Wellness Consultant

"My mission is to educate, inspire, and empower people to be the best they can be."

Improve Employee Production

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 10 leading causes of death in America are more a result of lifestyle than all other possible causes combined. Employees with healthy lifestyles cost their companies much less. Employees that are healthy and happy reduce their absenteeism and increase their productivity. The ability for an individual to be healthy is multifaceted and includes managing stress, being socially engaged and maintaining a high level of cognition and physical function. This will improve employee morale, decrease turnover and enhance recruiting and company image.

Team Building

A team is a group of individuals that work together for a common goal. The quality of the relationship - with ourselves, others, and the world around us – determines the quality of our lives. To the degree that we feel connected, we will also feel that our life has meaning. Knowing that we are connected and committed to each other gives both our lives more purpose. The team must have a common mission which defines what the team is there to do. It can have the feeling of a vision or be a statement of what is. It may also vary as to levels of specificity. The mission is the global reason for being, which then requires synergy frim individual commitment and the accomplishment of many specific performance goals.

Successful Aging

Successful aging is a result of a balanced exchange of energy between the individual and the social system in which the individual finds himself or herself. Having a purpose in life has been found to create a passion for life, and it gives meaning to life. Older individuals who still believe they can improve themselves need a sense of creative tension that cancels out depression and the lack of challenge that has been found to cause disease.

In a Harvard study, participants were asked to share what they believed were the benefits of pursuing wisdom and to identify rules for living well that they had gathered during their lifetimes Some of their suggestions included the following:

Be happy into old age.

Be confident.

Search for meaning.

Live life because it is worth living.

We must find what stimulates us to continue to grow and develop our better selves

"Dianne specifically designed a 2-day teambuilding and personal development workshop for Hewlett Packard Consulting. The teambuilding resulted in the team coming together and being able to solve tasks faster than before. The personal development was well received and people are still talking about the final dream building exercise. Dianne made the 2 days a wonderful experience and the results were very clear. We would not hesitate to use Dianne in the future."
