As a Health and Well-being Coach, I often get asked this question. I’m sure we would all answer this question slightly differently, as we are all different after all…or are we?
When it comes to Health and Well-being, I believe we are all remarkably similar. To not just live day by day, but to be at our best, we need to look after all aspects of ourselves – physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually.
Yes we all have our own ways of dealing with things, our own coping strategies, our own beliefs and values but the one thing we do share, on a basic human level, is that these aspects of our lives need to be maintained in order to live a healthy life.
How many of you watch what you eat but don’t exercise regularly? Or exercise regularly but don’t take time out to re-charge mentally? Or maybe you do things like meditation to help maintain mental clarity but still hold on to emotional baggage? All of these factors have an impact on our life and there needs to be balance. Trying to find balance living in today’s ever busy world? Sometimes it just doesn’t seem like it’s possible right?
I’m here to tell you it is. I can’t say it’s easy, because it isn’t, but I absolutely do know that it’s worth it. It took me 12 long years of battling chronic ill health to really understand the meaning and importance of Health and Well-being, and I would love to help you understand what it means for you too – in the way that works best for you, to enable you to live a life that you want.
