Did You Know?

Food Portions Today are Four Times Bigger Than They Were in the 1950s:

The average hamburger was 3.9 ounces in the 1950s, versus 12 ounces now.  A serving of fries is less than 7 ounces, up from 2.4 oz.  And the average soda today is 40 ounces compared to only 7.  No wonder why so many Americans are overweight. (Center for Disease Control and Prevention)


Cherry Juice Helps You Sleep Better:

Recent findings: People who drank two ounces of tart cherry juice concentrate (or ate one ounce of tart dried cherries) a day slept an average of 39 minutes longer and spent less time awake in bed than those who drank a non-cherry fruit drink. Reason: cherry juice significantly increases levels of the sleep-regulating hormone melatonin in the body. Try drinking cherry juice concentrate 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. (North Umbria University, UK, published in European Journal of Nutrition)


Vitamin C Helps Burn More Fat:

In a recent study, people who took 500mg of vitamin C daily burned 39% more fat while exercising than people who took less.

Inspirational Quotes

“You don’t do things because you’re capable; you’re capable because you do.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  - Maya Angelou

“Our values are the mental maps our unconscious mind uses to navigate us to our personal treasures.”



“Marla is one of the best teachers I ever had. I walk out of class not only inspired but also able to use fundamental techniques for true application. She is truly engaging and inspiring in her approach to teaching. As a result of her program, I have begun my own private practice and it is a fabulous journey!” ~ Randi Beckman, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist

“One of the strengths of the hypnotherapy program is that students are exposed to many different techniques and have the opportunity to practice them with classmates. There is a strong class interaction, time for discussion, and practicum. The NLP course and the language of the mind was a powerful component of the program.” ~ J.M. CCH, Realtor/Broker

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone!

Share the gift of giving...

There is greatness, eloquence, and beauty in making time for others.  Nothing you can give is more valued than your genuine presence of focused attention in your relationships and interactions with others.  Being with someone in the silence of just listening without any expectations of the results is the ultimate compliment; it is indeed the most valued gesture you can make to another human being.

When we give ourselves to a person, we breathe new life into one another; relationships flourish, and we as individuals grow wiser and stronger.  We help heal each other’s wounds and support each other’s growth. So give YOU to someoneeven a strangeryour time, attention, and kindness.  That’s better than any other gift. Not only is it free, but it won’t break or get lost, and will always be remembered.

Please read about “The Gift of Hope” campaign (below) that the Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy is launching at our Open House on December 10th.


"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see." -Mark Twain

With the holidays just ahead, many of us are already thinking of others with the thought of giving. Therefore, I’m hoping you will join MIOH in our fund-raising effort to help support those in the Philippines who have lost loved ones and are without food, water, shelter, and medical supplies.


The name of our project is The Gift of Hope and our goal is to raise a minimum of $4,000 by February 14, 2014 for the Philippines Relief Fund through three 501(c)3 charities: Doctors Without Borders USA, Save the Children Federation, and the International Rescue Committee.

There will also be a Silent Auction to help raise additional funds. Those donating to the Silent Auction will be highlighted in our website and in the next newsletter. (Items to be donated to this Silent Auction must be received in our center by Thursday, December 5th.)

Entrance Donation: $10 or more (cash or check) going to the Philippines Relief Fund. (Designate which of the above charities you wish to donate to.)  For those who are unable to attend and still want to donate, please visit


All proceeds from this evening's donations and Silent Auction will go directly to the Philippines Relief Fund charities.
