Hi Green Team!
Let’s talk about Wellness.
Wellness: Why should it be a major investment in your self?
First, let’s answer: What is wellness?
“Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more that being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. “
Wellness includes the core value system of my practice – The 5 Pillars of Health model which monitors Diet, Exercise, Stress, Sleep and Mindfulness.
There are many who call themselves healthy because they exercise all this time. As I have seen in my practice, while these persons have a certain physical appearance, they may not have mastered healthy habits that are associated with wellness; habits which can improve overall health status, balance and well being.
Eating foods that are not associated with wellness accelerate the ageing process whether it can be seen externally or occurs internally.
(You are what you eat, Dr Gillian Mckeath, 2006)
Other results from poor nutrition:
My Group Nutrition Programs e.g.
The Summer Burn (June 10th to July 8th)
Summer burn is about incorporating healthy eating habits, learning a schedule for incorporating clean, healthy, plant based meal plan which has focuses on meal combining and is allergen friendly.
Although it does take an amount of commitment, making the decision to try one’s best really and truly does allow for the client to reap the benefits of removing unhealthy habits while new healthy habits takes its place.
The meals are delicious and you can opt to purchase food out once following the core principles over a 4 week amazing experience.
It is not a diet but instead a plan that can provide the freedom of empowered decision making when it comes to food and nutrition while providing you with the tools that boost confidence for how to eat healthy and lose weight for life.
My goals for creating these programs are simple. I wish for everyone to consider their wellness a priority so that as they age, they can stay youthful, adventurous and have fun on the journey instead of living in fear, regret and guilt which uneducated nutrition choices can have influence over.
Experiencing the freedom behind removed food addictions is ultimately liberating in so many ways and allows the body and mind to be ready and open to receive wellness. This is amazing because it allows you the space and focus to consciously nourish the body with wholesome energizing, and healing foods while removing self sabotaging habits.
Can you imagine a version of you without those habits that you don’t love? And a version of you fully equipped with habits that are reflective of who you are want to be in this world as well as who you are becoming as a means of learning to thrive.
Do you experience any of these?
