How to Take Control of Your Life with 3 Steps

screen-shot-2016-08-22-at-12-47-41-pm
Take Control with The Green Shot Challenge

Take Control with The Green Shot Challenge explained in 3 simple steps.

Step 1) Pick one aspect of your life you want to improve

Everyone has something

in their lives that they’ve been wanting to change  for some time but just can’t possibly fathom how it could get done.  So, you let it wallow in the shadow of your life for far too long, and to no one’s surprise, you sink deeper and deeper, making the change seem even more impossible.

Rebecca Matsil, a team member at Perfect Foods, studied Psychology at the University at Albany and has made it her life’s mission to understand the life long pursuit of human beings called, “happiness”. As long time and respected leaders in the Health Industry, Perfect Foods has made it its personal mission to help New Yorkers find that.

The #1 factor in depression

in America is the feeling of a “lack of control” in one’s life. Have you forgotten that you have control. Feeling helpless, hopeless and trapped in the momentum of the life you built for yourself is not how life has to be. But, don’t worry, you’re not alone and you can make a change.

“I want New Yorkers to realize that they have the power to Take Control of their lives and no change is too big or too impossible if it means growth in the long run,”

said Rebecca. We want the humans of NY to know that you have the choice to make a change, and we are here to help you start now!   You have control. Nothing makes you more unhappy with yourself than knowing that something is not right in your life and you’re not doing anything about it.  So, let’s make a change together.

One of the biggest problem with successfully making a change is first identifying what the problem is and how you want to improve it. Pick one aspect of your life to take control of. This is something you have been wanting to change but just haven’t gotten around to.

Some possible changes could be:

  • Job
  • Any Relationship: Romantic, Family, Friend, Co-worker
  • Mindset (being more positive or grateful)
  • Self-esteem
  • Start a new passion
  • Start a new skill
  • Work on an old skill
  • Work on a relationship
  • Move to a new place
  • Change your diet
  • Lose weight
  • Exercise more
  • Start Meditating/yoga

These are just ideas, but you know what change is right for you. Think of something that is holding you back from your potential. Think of something you always wanted to do but never had the time or guts to do. Think of something you envy in someone else that you wish you could have. Think of something that would increase your quality of life and, together, let’s take control.

Step 2) Be Committed and Have Possitive Support

Commitment is key to change and commitment without support is hard. That’s why we created the 4 Day Green Shot Challenge.

4 Day #GreenShotChallenge.

In 4 days you will provide your body with healthy nutrients and pick one aspect of your life you would like to see change with the support of Perfect Foods.

It’s not easy doing it on your own, so we created the 4 Day Green Shot Challenge to give you healthy support and personal support. Drink The Green Shot (Perfect Foods Wheatgrass) for 4 days in a row in one of our many locations around New York.

 Mission: Let’s Make  A Happier New York.

“Happiness is being comfortable with who you are and where you are going. Everything else doesn’t feel like such a challenge once you have that,” -Rebecca.

Short and Sweet Story: How Wheatgrass Saved Juvenile Arthritis

Harley’s Wheatgrass Stories:

The miracles of wheatgrass...
The miracles of wheatgrass…

My name is Harley Matsil, the owner of Perfect Foods, and I would like to share one of my many touching wheatgrass stories with you.

Wheatgrass Saved Juvenile Arthritis

Working in the health food industry, I meet a lot of sickly people desperate for help. One of these people was my friend Willie.  She was a nutritional consultant at a health food store called Jandi’s on Long Island and a long time customer of ours. Her daughter, sadly, had juvenile arthritis and lived in excruciating pain and inflamed wrists every day.

This is a story of how wheatgrass saved Juvenile arthritis. This type of arthritis is recognized as a “terminal illness” in the western medical world and Willie’s daughter had little hope for a day with out pain. However, Willie’s daughter told her story and sweared to have felt significantly better immediately after using wheatgrass in her diet.

For years we delivered wheatgrass and sprouts to their home (we still do to this day), and got to know them as loyal customers, dear friends, and beautiful people.

A few years ago I decided to stop by their house personally. After Willie greeted me outside, she poked her head into the house and whispered to her daughter, “Come out and tell Harley what you told me this morning.” Her daughter, now in her teens, tip toed out to meet me and as she wiggled her hands and wrists in a circle, she cried, “I am able to do this because of you.” As tears rolled down her cheek, she explained how hard it was to constantly be in pain all day every day. When she started to drink wheatgrass, she KNEW it was working. “I ate pizza not too long ago,” she insisted, “and my wrist started to hurt again.”  I looked at her mother Willie, and we both had a slight smile. It was clear thatwheatgrass saved juvenile arthritis nourishing her body with greens, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals.

There is nothing more miraculous than seeing a child in pain feel that there is some hope. No child should have to be told there is no cure to their condition. With support, love and a healthy diet, our stories show there is nothing your body can’t heal on its own.
