So you had a New Year’s Resolution to start and maintain an exercise program at the gym. You started out so strong and with so much determination, but here we are at the middle of February and you haven’t been to the gym in over 2 weeks. Your initial motivation has petered out and it looks like an exercise program is not in the cards for you this year, right? Well before you hang up your gym shoes, we think that you should give it another shot. We ALL experience times when it's hard to get ourselves into the gym...but there are lots of reasons this happens. We need to match the right solutions to the roadblocks. Once you’ve cleared any roadblocks, you can get your New Year’s Resolution back on track.
The beginning of the DIAKADI Difference Program, which allows a participant to work with trainers once to twice a week for three months, focusing on fitness, diet, and lifestyle choices.

Meditation affords us the opportunity to find inner peace amid our often hectic daily lives. By clearing the mind and practicing mindfulness (a term we'll explore more later), we can calm the swirling tides of our thoughts and emotions and see things more clearly. However, meditation can seem daunting. It takes practice to be able to tame a mind that is so used to having free rein all the time. This level of mastery is difficult to achieve with a few sporadic meditation sessions sprinkled throughout the week. That's where Spirit Rock comes in. Sprawled among the woodlands of Marin County, Spirit Rock offers immersive meditation retreats designed to deepen your personal meditation practice by combining the teachings of Buddha, insight meditation, and loving-kindness meditation.
Our very own Billy Polson, as well as a long time DIAKADI client Gary Loeb, were able to attend a full 5-day silent meditation retreat. We interviewed both of them to get a sense of what they experienced.
Somehow the New Year has come and gone, and we're now on the fast track to February. How did that even happen? Nevertheless, the "new year, new you" mantra is in full swing and if you are the type of person to make resolutions, let's do a quick check-in. How are they going? If they're no longer going, don't stress. Our DIAKADI trainers say it's time to regroup, start over, and get this show on the road.
