Byron Morrison Part 2: New Years Resolutions, what are they good for?


I’d like to start by telling you a story.

I still remember the moment like it was yesterday, sitting in the doctor’s office and being told my dad had cancer. In an instance my life was completely turned upside down. What followed were months of torment, leading to him eventually having most of his bowel surgically removed. The issues didn’t stop there, as after several complications what was meant to three days in the ICU turned in 25. He spent most of that time on life support, breathing through a hole in his throat due to a tracheostomy and with doctors saying they didn’t know if he would pull through.

It was after that experience that it dawned on me how much of an influence his lifestyle choices had on causing the disease. With everything from a diet high in sugar, to being a pack a day smoker who did no physical activity and an overwhelmingly stressful career, all unsurprisingly taking a toll on his health.

At the time I lived a largely sedentary life, paying no attention to what I did or ate, and it showed, on a mental, physical and emotional level. I was close to 50 pounds heavier and had huge problems with everything from self-confidence to my relationships with food, managing stress and dealing with the ups and downs of everyday life.

Flash forward a few years and I’ve not only lost the weight, but I’ve also kept it off, all while changing the way I think, feel and view life. I’m no longer always tired, lacking energy, moody, stressed or always on edge. The truth is I never even realised how bad I felt until I finally started to feel better, which is the unfortunate reality so many people are living in every day.

Since then I’ve made it my mission to help as many people as possible live healthier happier lives, with the goal of helping them avoid going through what happened to my dad.

That was my inspiration behind my book ‘Become a Better You’ and why I started my Tailored Lifestyles.

Byron Morrison: Introduction to Tailored Lifestyles


Tailored Lifestyles was created by Byron Morrison with one simple mission: To help as many people as possible live healthier happier lives, by taking a holistic approach in coaching them to improve their wellbeing.

So who is Byron Morrison?

I’m the author of the book ‘Become a Better You’ and Founder of Tailored Lifestyles: Habit, Nutrition and Fitness Coaching.

I know that change is hard. In fact, I know exactly how daunting and overwhelming it can be. Just like most people, I used to struggle with the entire concept of what a healthier lifestyle is all about and why it is so important. I paid no attention to what I did or ate and lived a largely sedentary life, comprising of little to no physical activity, with a diet filled with highly refined and processed food.

I had absolutely no idea of just how much of an influence proper nutrition and lifestyle choices have on our health and it showed on a mental, physical and emotional level. I was nearly 50 pounds heavier and had huge problems with everything from managing stress to my relationships with food, self confidence, along with dealing with the ups and downs of everyday life. Everything was affected, from my overall wellbeing to my relationships, mind-set and general outlook on life.

Frances Venegas


What a profound writer! As Frances launches out to put ink to paper, it’s as though God Himself is orchestrating every word you read. The flow of each message invites the reader in to take part in the illustrations of life. Each and every poem has it’s very own special identity. No two are alike. Frances has an engaging imagination that allows the reader to catch a glance of the pure nature of God’s holy power.

Frances has her own unique style that expresses not only her love and devotion to God, but her life experiences as well as encouragement and inspiration to her fellow man. The simplicity of her phrasing and the natural rhymes reflect her understanding of the power of words in their most familiar form. She is an artist who has come into her own.

Frances started writing in 1998 after hearing Dr. Maya Angelou speak. Through the years she has truly grown and blossomed as a poet. She realizes that it’s a God given gift and talent. Frances doesn’t take it lightly, that God has chosen her to minister to His people in this way. Frances truly has a heart for God’s people. She is humble, loyal and giving. All of these attributes and more are evident in and through her poetry.

Frances’s poetry has been published in several newspapers and newsletters . She has recited her poetry at church ministry functions and community events. Frances is also in the process of publishing her first book and her own line of greeting cards with personalized poetry plaques.

Frances is most certainly a woman called by God to compose the real to life compositions that touch the deepest part of your heart through her serious depictions of what matters most in life. She is the modern day Maya Angelou with her own abilities.
