Healthy Lifestyle Design
Designing your unique roadmap requires us to work together to dissect and understand each component so that we can shape it to help you achieve your goals.
Fact: we are all different, yet require the same tools to survive and thrive. They are rest, nourishment, movement, and mindfulness. A healthy lifestyle design gives you a plan on how to implement these and weave them into your daily life, which is unique to your body and your priorities.
I am here to guide, to curate, and to ensure that you have what you need to move forward, always starting with a single step.
Don’t underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. Your morning and evening routines, as well as your sleep quality, play a vital role in good health and well-being. Healthy sleep routines can help soothe your nervous system and promote positive mental and physical health, quality of life and safety. Our body survives and thrives when it follows a rhythm and routine.
Our ancestors lived a life of movement - from morning to night they were in constant flux. Basic, simple movement is yet another tool that helps to reset our nervous system and has a profound impact on our mental and physical well-being. Once we begin to understand the best way to move and how often we move, then we can begin to change our relationship with our body and our environment. We were made to move; unfortunately we live in a society that sees movement as an inconvenience. Let’s change that and in turn, change your body and your chemistry.
Do you know the difference between low energy and high energy food? Do you live to eat or eat to live? What else are you feeding your body and mind so that it feels alive, satiated, and creative? Understanding the basic components of fuel for the body will unleash you from chains of diets, extreme exercise and other limiting beliefs. When we can identify what feeds us at the soul level, then we are truly nourished.
Where is your mind when you are taking a shower, eating lunch, or walking to your vehicle? Are you alert, and aware of your surroundings? Interacting with the people, places, and things that are around you? Where is your focus? Anxiety is a state we experience when we are thinking about the future; and depression creeps in when we are ruminating about the past. Being mindful allows us to exercise our brain and cultivate a practice of focus and awareness, something that our society of multi-tasking has robbed us of. There are tools and techniques we can learn and practice to help achieve and maintain presence. When we are living moment to moment, we are cool, calm, collected, and connected.
