“Success begins with just one step outside of your comfort zone.”

Tracey Marinelli

 If you are battling Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions, you will know how frustrating it is to be on a constant mission of trying to find that one miracle fix that will take away all of your pain and fatigue. Sadly, I am not in the granting wishes business, but I can offer you almost 30 years of experience in dealing with my own Fibromyalgia. I spent years finding out what works and basically what didn't and believe me when I say there was a lot that didn't. I will save you hours and hours of googling, research and reading as I share all my coping strategies, tips and tools alongside proven strategies which enable me to live a life whereby "I thrive, not just survive" and all whilst being medication free. As a qualified Wellness Coach, I will stand alongside you as we empower you in finding out what works best for you.

 

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humour, and some style."

Healthy Lifestyle

I am putting together my final assignment for my Health & Wellness Diploma on what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.

The World Health Organisation defines health as “a state of complete, physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”. Therefore “healthy” is defined as balance in body, mind and spirit.

For thousands of year ancient philosophies have understood that you cannot separate the body from the mind and therefore the will to have wellness in all areas of ones life relies on choice.

Greetings from Kos

Morning from a beautiful sunny Kos.

It’s 8.30am and already very warm. Proof if ever it was needed that you are what you eat and do. Yesterday was a busy, travelling day so no morning yoga session and ate what I can only describe as mostly pre-packed and totally processed crap on the plane.

Having eaten clean for the past couple of months, my body has rebelled big time with bloating, cramps and feeling generally yuk, even trying to compensate with gallons of peppermint tea hasn’t helped. So thank goodness I packed apple cider vinegar!! Today, I am on a mission to borrow a yoga mat and will be seeking out plenty of fresh fruit, veg and fish before I have to face airline food again next week. 


Moral of the story is that this is absolute proof that our bodies need to be fed fresh and unprocessed food, it craves clean food and makes our lives (and health) uncomfortable when it doesn’t get it. We need to move and stretch and the effects are noticeable when you miss just one day. Once our bodies know they are onto a good thing it certainly let’s us know when it isn’t happy.

Good eating habits don’t take long to make and would, I imagine be hard to break given the adverse effects in doing so.

Have a great day, I know I will x
