Is Self-Care Transformative?

Right out of the gate I would say yes… but then you would expect me to as a Self-care Coach!
The truth is, I embed self-care principles in all areas of my personal life and my work, whether I am leading Nordic Walking classes, Personal Training clients, Nutrition Coaching or Mindset Coaching; every single one of these avenues lead to increased self-care and that leads my clients to making healthier life decisions that transform their experience of life (over time).
And what makes my work worthwhile is when I get to share my client’s stories because it is their experience and outcomes that remind me how important this work is. So here is one such story:

Something’s got to give!

What Messages Are Driving Your Mind?

True heath is the combined wellbeing of mind, body & emotions.; they are intrinsically linked and are at the centre of embedding self-care into your life.

We are wired from birth to take in the earliest messages for translation, be they supportive or destructive. If we don’t ever stop to check in on them and question them, what they mean to us, we run the risk of being influenced by the destructive messages as well the supportive ones, distorting our view of self, others and the world around us.
