This approach is not about acquiring more self-discipline or willpower. It’s about personally discovering what nourishes you, what feeds you and ultimately what makes your life extraordinary.” Joshua Rosenthal, Founder and Director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
If you are a busy professional like me, you probably understand the challenges of finding time for self-care. Even on those lucky days when you find a few spare moments for yourself, you feel guilty because all this time you’ve been busy putting everyone and everything else first. Your selflessness (or reluctance to delegate responsibilities in fear of less than perfect results) is causing you stress and anxiety, maybe lack of seep and ultimately, it is compromising your health.
Self care is not a selfish act – in fact, it is the exact opposite. When you spend time to nurture yourself and get healthy, your energy level goes up. Having more energy in your life will benefit people around you and give you the strength and confidence to overcome the challenges you encounter every day. And let’s face it, everyone likes to have healthy energetic people around!
Health is not all about the food you eat or about how many hours you spend at the gym – it is about every aspect of your life. Health is about slowing down enough to discover a balanced lifestyle – an integration of joyful experiences, good nutrition, fulfilling work and healthy relationships. Learning how to lead such a lifestyle is difficult at times because we often let our wellbeing take a backseat to the success of our career and keep our emotions underwater for the happiness of our family and friends. Working long hours and spending little to no time on maintaining good health leads to exhaustion and emotional burnout.
As a Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to make gradual, lifelong changes. I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you and to integrate self care, nutrition, physical and spiritual practice into your life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.
I currently coach people in the metropolitan Boston area but if you live elsewhere across the world and wish to transform your life and health, I am just a phone call away! Schedule a free consultation with me today.
