Begin Your Day With Positive Thoughts to Create an Exceptional Life, Louise Hay Urges

How do you begin each and every day?
What are the very first thoughts you think?
What ideas fill your head as you get out of bed, hop in the shower, make breakfast, and prepare for the day ahead?
Do you dread the projects and duties that lie ahead of you? Or do you approach your day with happy anticipation?
No matter what challenges you are facing — whether it’s sugar addiction, financial issues, or other family situations — If you begin your day joyously and gratefully, you’ll have a fabulous day — and life.
Lately, I’ve been giving quite a bit of thought to how I begin my day, thanks to the fabulous new book, You Can Create an Exceptional Life, from two of my heroines, Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson, both mega-best-selling authors, who’ve helped millions around the world. (Follow these amazing ladies on Facebook — just click the links I just gave.)
Both of these remarkable women are living proof that the spiritual principles they discuss in their new book really do work. As you read You Can Create an Exceptional Life, you’ll discover that you, too, can create an exceptional life, too.
In fact, I now follow their wonderful advice religiously, and I urge you to do that, too.
In You Can Create an Exceptional Life, which features the collective wisdom of Louise and Cheryl, you get many wonderful tidbits of advice on how lead a glorious life.
For instance, Louise suggests that you begin your day by looking at yourself lovingly in the mirror and telling yourself how much you love yourself and how awesome you are. Try it! You’ll find that this simple little tool works amazing wonders!
Also, see this wonderful YouTube video with Louise and Cheryl.
Anyhow, in this fabulous new book, You Can Create an Exceptional Life, you get many wonderful affirmations to use as you begin and go through your day. (There’s an amazing Collected Affirmations section in the back of the book, which you’ll love, I predict.)
By the way, another one of my absolute favorite CDs/books is, I Can Do It: How to Use Affirmations to Change Your Life, also from Louise Hay.
Since June — after getting quite exhausted, rundown, headachy, low on energy, and really burnt out (I developied electropollution from working long hours on my book, Beyond Sugar Shock) — I’ve been listening to I Can Do It or another Louise Hay CD every morning.
My daily Louise Hay booster shot helped to quickly bring back my natural energy, enthusiasm and joe de vivre. Wow! If you’re facing any kind of challenge, I urge you to check it out!
Let us know here what you think of both of these fabulous books, You Can Create an Exceptional Life and I Can Do It: How to Use Affirmations to Change Your Life.
Stay tuned for photos of me with Louise and Cheryl at Louise’s recent 85th birthday party.
So what new affirmations and thoughts are you having as you begin your day?
(Full Disclosure: My next book, Beyond Sugar Shock, is for Hay House, which is the same publisher for both You Can Create an Exceptional Life and I Can Do It: How to Use Affirmations to Change Your Life, but just because we’re in the same publishing family does not affect my thoughts about these books. Both of these books are amazing, and I’d be raving about them no matter what. Get them now to change your life, and tell us what you think!)

My Story: I’ve been really into Zumba since Jan. 2, when I took my first class at the JCC in Manhattan. Since then, I’ve been going all over to take Zumba classes, especially at the awesome Equinox Fitness Clubs, where I’ve found all kinds of awesome instructors.
I’m deeply grateful to author Marci Shimoff, author of Love for No Reason and Happy for No Reason, for getting me interested in learning Zumba after seh mentioned it in her workshop at the Hay House I Can Do It! Conference in Tampa, Florida.

Hurrah! Computer Fixed!

After a fabulous weekend getting inspired and exhilarated by the Hay House I Can Do It! Conference in Tampa and listening to such fabulous people as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Marianne Williamson, Robert Holden and Dr. Brian Weiss, I came back home to a tempermental computer.
Suffice it to say that a virus blasted my computer to smithereens.
Firefox wouldn’t stay open — it was shutting down often.
Sending emails was pretty much impossible.
In short, my computer was so sluggish, sputtering and malfunctioning that I was fearful it would just die in the middle of my Sweeter Holiday webinars/teleseminars.
So I had to make a tough decision. I had to cancel last night’s programs with Gift Guru Robyn Spizman and acclaimed hypnotherapist Steve G. Jones. Don’t worry: we’re rescheduling them. How awful it would have been if my computer had shut down in the middle of a program!
Heart-smiley-face-download For hours — I think it was five, maybe six or seven — my computer guy worked hard at fixing my computer.
He had to take out my hard drive, put in a new one, install a new Windows 7, move over all my data, including the book I’m writing (Beyond Sugar Shock for Hay House), set up my email account again, etc., etc.
Tadum! I’m now a very happy woman with a super fast computer that’s making it possible to get my work done so much quicker!
My computer guy says it’s now even better than now. And thankfully, I have lots more space, too, because I was running out of space, too!
So we’re back today for the Sweeter Holiday Summit. Join us tonight’s exciting programs at 6 pm Eastern with Steve G. Jones and 8 pm Eastern with Law of Attraction expert Eva Gregory.
Wondering what the Sweeter Holiday Summit is?
This event features 40 experts, whose mission is to help you thrive this holiday season.
SweeterHoliday_blog size 18 Sign up now at, and you’ll be able to listen to the fabulous program with the acclaimed FlyLady yesterday. (Thankfully, I was still able to hold that program before my computer got even worse. Stay tuned for a post about our fabulous webinar/teleseminar with her.)
Just sign up at, and you listen for FREE for 48 hours to all programs. If your schedule is hectic, don’t fret, because you can listen afterwards, at any time if you upgrade to the V.I.P. All Access Anytime Pass.
We’d love to have you join us. But hurry, becuase space is limited.
Please note that the figure is incorrect. We’re now having more than 30 experts — at present 40 Gurus in health, wealth, wellness, Feng shui, inner peace, finance, Law of Attraction, weight loss and more will help you to make this your best holiday season yet.

Sugar Shock Blog Now Promotes Quality Foods, Products & Services

As you may have noticed, recently the Sugar Shock Blog began promoting certain foods, products or services with affiliate links or banner ads.
I’ve resisted doing this since the Sugar Shock Blog made its debut on June 7, 2010 because I was focused on bringing you great information and I wanted to maintain the quality of this blog.
Furthermore, I grew weary of being asked to review or comment on various foods or services that did not meet my rigorous standards. You never heard about this before, because I’ve been refusing to write about these sub-standard (in my opinion) foods and products. For years, however, I have, recommended many books I like.
In retrospect, I realize that Ii’ve been doing you a disservice by not seeking out and recommending foods, products and services that I love or respect.
So now, on this Sugar Shock Blog, you’ll find ads or affiiate banners for foods, products, services and events that I consider to be of the highest caliber.
This means that for foods, NONE of them will ever contain sugar, fructose, maltodextrin, agave (which I consider worse than fructose), honey, artificial sweeteners or even organic cane sugar. (At least, as far as I now.) Meanwhile, I’ll also strive to tell you about superior self-growth and other programs and services.
Anyhow, I intend to continue to behave like a woman and blogger of high integrity. To that end, I’d lke to share with you my Sweet, But Stringent Standards.
Thank you for supporting fabulous companies such as Vital Choice, U.S. Wellness Meats and Hay House, which is publishing my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock. Speaking of my new publisher, will I see you at the upcoming I Can Do It Conference in Florida?
Showcase: Hay House, Inc.
I also invite you to visit my new Sugar Shock Shop on Open Sky, where you can find organic nut butters, chia seeds, colorful Buddha Bowls, organic shea butter, organic lavendar bath salts, organic cacao nibs, a yoga mat cover and much more.
If you’d like to recommend a company, food or product to advertise here, let me know. But first, please read my Sweet, But Stringent Standards.

News for Sugar Addicts: Sugar Shock’s Successor is on the Way — Please Help Me Name the New Book

Are you a sugar addict? Would you like to easily shed excess weight? Do you often get headaches, “brain fog” and fatigue? And are you suffering from a low libido, severe PMS or infertility?
Either way, this is for you.
I’m really excited and thrilled to announce that – after repeated requests from many of you – the follow-up book to my book Sugar Shock is on the way.
Hay House images Sugar Shock’s successor is coming to you, thanks to my new publisher, Hay House, which is the international leader in self-help and transformational publishing.
How will this new book help you? Well, let’s face it, cutting out – or even cutting back – on sugar and refined carbs is really tough for most people.
In fact, sugar addiction is a challenging situation to solve EVEN if you know that overcoming it can help you to lose weight, get more energy, boost your libido, prevent or reverse diabetes and live longer.
So, in my follow-up book to Sugar Shock, you’ll get valuable tools and tips that will make letting go of your sugar addiction simple – and even fun.
You may be wondering how this new book will be different from my first book, Sugar Shock.
Sugar Shock is primarily an exposé that spotlights sugar’s many dangers. One of my goals is for it to shock you into wanting to kick your bad habit. For instance, this book includes scary information about the link between excess sweets and obesity, memory loss, mood swings, troubled relationships, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, female problems and early aging.
On the other hand, my next book will give you a simple, compassionate, step-by-step plan to help you stop sugar shock and break free of your sugar habit for good.
In other words, my first book Sugar Shock dishes the sour DIRT about sweets.
Now, my intention with Sugar Shock’s baby (so to speak) is to tell you HOW to ditch desserts and get a healthier, happier, longer and much sweeter life.
After reading my new book, you will — I hope and believe — escape sugar shock, easily release weight, say goodbye to mid-afternoon crashes, experience joyous freedom, look and feel better than you have in years, and build a better life in the bedroom, if you catch my drift.
In this follow-up book to Sugar Shock:
* You’ll get many tried-and-true tactics — ones I created when I kicked sugar back in 1998 and ones recommended by dozens of other health experts. And you’ll benefit from my 12 years of coaching or connecting with people around the world so they can break free of their sugar addiction.
* You’ll undertake simple, interactive adventurcises™ (my word for adventurous exercises).
* You’ll discover several dozen ways to stomp out your sugar cravings.
* You’ll learn what color sugar lover you are. (Yes, we’re all different in our relationship with sweets, and this knowledge will empower you to make the right choices for you.)
* You’ll detox gradually so that your body, mind and even soul won’t go into shock.
* You’ll get meal plans and tasty recipes from a recognized nutritionist and exercise physiologist.
* You’ll learn to Enjoy a Sweeter Life Without Refined Sweets™.
* And much more.
But I’d like your help to name my upcoming book.
You see, although I know what I’m including in the follow-up to Sugar Shock — thanks to questions and feedback I’ve received from many of you — my wonderful Hay House editor and I still haven’t settled on the book’s title.
We have a number of thoughts, but right now, we’re going to let ideas percolate for the next week or two.
So would you be kind enough to give me your input?
Since you’re my target audience, what is a title — and subtitle — that would entice you to buy this follow-up book to Sugar Shock?
If my Hay House editor and I pick your title, you’ll get several gifts.
1. You’ll get one hour of complimentary coaching from me very soon.
2. You’ll get complimentary admission to an audio replay of my Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction in 6 Weeks program, which includes access to a private, members-only website. (Learn more at
3. And you’ll be one of the very first people to get a copy of my new book, the follow-up to Sugar Shock.
4. That’s not all. You’ll also get my profound gratitude.
5. Then, I’ll thank you in the book.
6. And I’ll also spotlight you here, on my Sugar Shock Blog.
Please share your great ideas for book titles now. What should my follow-up book to Sugar Shock be called? And, in your opinion, what is the best subtitle?
Now, before I part, let me take a Gratitude Moment. I just want to extend my heartfelt thanks to my new friends at Hay House for deciding to help me help you by agreeing to bring my follow-up book to Sugar Shock into the world.
Louise_hay_pic By the way, I highly recommend that you look into the life-changing, empowering Movers & Shakers events from Hay House, a company that was founded in 1984 by inspiring author Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and Heal Your Body as a way to self-publish her first two books.
Both of Louise’s books books went on to become international bestsellers, and You Can Heal Your Life has sold a whopping 35 million copies worldwide and it established Louise as a leader in the transformational movement.
Events sponsored by Hay House are amazing, as I discovered upon attending the Movers & Shakers conference in New York City in December. (That wonderful event was, in fact, where I met Louise, which was a big thrill for me, because I’ve been a fan of hers for years. In fact, You Can Heal Your Life was one of the books that helped inspire me to overcome my sugar addiction.) At the Movers & Shakers conference in New York, I also had the pleasure of meeting Hay House’s motivating president and CEO Reid Tracy, my new editor and the dazzling author Cheryl Richardson, author of the life-changing book, The Art of Extreme Self-Care.)
I encourage you to learn more about Hay House’s programs and products that have a positive self-help slant and are conducive to healing planet Earth. Just go to ==== >>>>
