 I use and I trust the Metagenics neutraceutical company because of the certifications and quality assurance I receive from this 30-year old company.

Success and Goal-Setting




What would you do if you knew you could not fail? If you are like most people you have dreams, goals, and aspirations that have not yet been met. Maybe fear of failure is holding you back or maybe it’s a little thing called money? Sometimes it’s even the fear of success and you don’t really want to change things up in your life. Or perhaps you’re thinking, “I’m too old.” 
Whatever it is that is holding you back from accomplishing your goals and moving into a more successful future, you can take that first step. Set a goal, make a list of all the reasons you should go for it, and then start. Just do one thing today that will move you closer to your feelings of success in reaching your goal. Then, as soon as you accomplish step one, go to step two, then three, and so on. If you miss a day don’t dwell on your failure, keep focusing on what you do want and keep moving forward. Soon you will see that the goal becomes clearer and more possible. Make sure you ask trusted people to help you along the way. At first, it might seem a tough thing to do but most people like sharing worthwhile goals. Once you get the positive feedback you will create momentum for a positive cycle of success. I ask again, “what would you do if you knew you could not fail?” Make a list and start today!

Maybe your goals include health and balancing work, family and taking care of yourself.  I am passionate about providing helpful, practical information while I help guide you to finding a new path and becoming the best version of you ever!

The One Word That CAN Change Your Life!



How many times have you been told, “don’t forget lunch,” or “don’t forget the birthday,” or how about, “don’t forget where you parked your car?”
The world is full of negative messages and even well-meaning parents, grandparents, co-workers, or friends can innocently speak words of doom and failure into us. 

Here’s the truth:  our brains cannot properly decipher a negative.  If you tell yourself what not to do, your brain really hears the action word and it will more than likely do that!  When you or someone else says, “don’t forget_____(fill in the blank), your brain hears…forget!And there’s a good chance you will forget whatever it is.

Recently, when parking at my local airport, as I got on the elevator, I saw a sign that made my day (and helped my brain!). The signs mounted on each floor of this parking structure read, “Remember Level Three,” “Remember Level Four,” etc.  Whoever thought-up and had those directives prominently posted understood brain health and comprehension much better than others who are responsible for the typical signs I read in most public places.  Most people and places always tell you not to forget!

It’s really simple once you get it.  The well-known motivational speaker Denis Waitley calls it the “R2-D2.” In his best-selling book, “Seeds of Greatness,” he uses the example of a professional baseball player who typically tells them self where to hit the ball when they’re up at-bat.  Not where not to hit it!  They have a much better chance of the ball going wherever their mind tells it to go. Guess what?  Your life is the same way.  Tell yourself what to do and start seeing positive results.   Tell yourself to “remember” (this, that and all things in life).  Always remember that your thoughts are way more powerful than you know. 

Need help telling yourself what to do!  I can help you.  Donna@DonnaSchuller.com

A Mental Health Checklist



If you find yourself feeling blue, agitated, or just not 100% on your emotional game lately, there are a few things you can do that will help.

1)    Pray. Spend a few minutes in meditation and prayer each morning before you start your day. Even 5 minutes of quiet time will make a huge difference.
2)   Breath.  Take deep cleansing breaths in and out.  Practice this several times a day.  Deep breathing will help your cortisol levels which in turn will lower your stress.
3)   Exercise.  If a daily walk is all you do, change it up. Vigorously walk up hills or stairs or run a few yards off and on.  Install the “7 Minute Workout” on your phone and add that to your schedule.  Slowly increase the time until you can do 3 or more cycles of the workout.  When you get used to it, change it up again. 
4)   Sleep.  Most people are sleep-deprived and don’t know what to do about it.  All of our “smart devices” are playing havoc with our health, one way is by interrupting our sleep.  Don’t look at your screens 2 hours before you plan on sleeping; 1 hour minimum. 
5)   Diet.  Eat meals that are unprocessed, and include raw, organic food as minimally prepared as possible.  Avoid chemicals contained in most sauces and salad dressings.  Consume all caffeine before noon.  Things like colas and chocolate are culprits too.  Not only will they affect your mood, but later, your sleep, which in turn affects your mood.  
6)   Self-inventory. Your mental health will improve when you are proactive. Spend time examining your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. Be courageous and make those tough changes that will help you become a better version of yourself.  Seek professional help when you need it.

3 Ways to Become a Better Version of YOU




"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”  Eleanor Roosevelt

If you are guilty of talking more about people, or even events, instead of ideas and other great things found in living, I suggest you implement three things that will transform your life. 

1)    Travel.  By airplane, by train, or by car.  Often, I meet people who give off the vibe that they are more important than those who live in other  places in the nation, or in the world.  Take caution, narrow mindedness, judgmentalism, extremism and bigotry can occupy the minds of those who have limited knowledge of how God’s presence and love spans the globe. God doesn’t love anyone more or less than the person who makes a living sweeping floors in the Midwest or who stands on the side of the road selling bananas in Africa.  

2)   Get a job.  If you don’t need the money, then work for spiritual and emotional growth. (It will also help you physically) If you don’t travel because you “can’t afford it,” save some money in a travel fund.  In just a year’s time, you can go almost anywhere. If you don’t need money, then volunteer. Go to the local thrift store and put in a few hours a week.  Engage with the people who shop there.  Learn their stories. It will transform your life. 


3)   Turn off the news and forget about politics until it’s election time. The constant barrage of negative messages, dispersed via social and traditional media, is exhausting and divisive.  If you don’t use social media for work, consider abandoning it altogether.  Get a social media private family account for sharing photos and other kind, loving information.  

If you need help sorting all this out please contact me and I will give you practical steps you can take that will help you a lot!
