I understand through my own experience how challenging it is maintaining a healthy lifestyle in today’s hectic world. It may be the same for you right now. Long working hours, limited leisure time, financial stress, anxiety, poor sleep patterns. The proliferation of fast food and the de-naturing of our fresh produce through intensive farming; long storage and transport times, added to the constant exposure to chemicals, pesticides and other toxins. All these have left too many of us overfed and under-nourished.
Even if we feel we have a healthy diet, it’s unlikely we’re getting our daily requirement of all of the healthy proteins, carbohydrates and fats, fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants we need to maintain our bodies in peak performance. And that doesn’t mean just sports performance. Our digestive systems are overworked, our organs unable to function as nature intended. We aren’t absorbing the vital nutrients we need, we can’t eliminate the harmful toxins that are slowing us down, keeping us from reaching our full wellness potential.
And what about our working lives? We’re working harder, for less money. Even if the money is great, too often it comes with strings attached – more responsibility and even longer hours – leaving less (or no) time to spend with family, enjoy ourselves, travel, play, unwind. And it’s why so many people are burned out way before they get to retirement!
I’m lucky enough to have found a solution that can address all of this. And if you recognise yourself in any of this, then I’m excited to share it with you!!
Get active, stay active
We know that exercise is good for our mood. It floods our body with lovely little chemicals that make us feel happy! But the more we put our body through, the more we put it under stress. So it’s essential to look after it on the outside AND the inside. Maintaining a healthy body by keeping your body fat down and building lean, strong muscle tissue, will boost your metabolism, and help keep you injury- and pain-free so you stay active, for longer.
If you’re looking for somewhere to start your wellbeing journey, just get moving. Take a walk, go for a run, get on your bike. Your body AND your mind will thank you for it. If you’re looking for the next step, why not check out my Personal Training & Fitness services.
Think well, be well
What about our mental and spiritual wellbeing? It’s as important to take care of our minds as it is our bodies. Our 24-hour culture, driven by technology and the need to see all, be all and experience all – virtually if not in reality – means our brains and senses are constantly under attack! We’ve forgotten how to live in the moment and enjoy just being!
We’ve probably all heard of mindfulness. But it’s not just about sitting cross-legged repeating mantras for hours on end! It can be as simple as putting yourself on pause to take a few deep breaths, and appreciating the moment right now. Being mindful applies to all areas of our lives. What we eat. How we eat. How we think. How we feel. And how we behave. Learning how to live mindfully can have a dramatic, positive impact on you AND on those around you.
You can read about my personal journey to mindfulness through meditation on our Blog page, where I’ll also be showcasing guest articles from complementary therapy practitioners, to help you discover your own path to mindful living.
There is another way
We have dreams as kids. To be a vet, a doctor, an inventor, an astronaut! But all too often we’re told we’re thinking too big. We’re programmed from school age to take a certain path in life. We’re taught how to survive, not to thrive! So when that path doesn’t turn out how we imagined, or we haven’t realised our dreams, we give up on them.
I’ve been lucky enough to discover that this isn’t the case. That there IS another way to live, to work. To build a business of our own, in the pockets of our spare time, that could create some extra income – how many of us could really use that right now? Especially in these current times. It could even lead to total financial freedom, if you’re prepared to work for it! And I’m blessed to have the opportunity to help others realise this for themselves.
Ask yourself this question: “If you could create a breakthrough in one area of your life right now, what would it be?“
Do you still dare to dream? Are you in a position to dream of what might be possible, in your current situation? Perhaps I can show you a way, if you’re open to taking a look.
