Life is so precious. All too often we become consumed with the busy-ness of day to day existence, hooked up in the unrealistic expectations of modern day life and overly committed to putting on a front.
We soldier on, making out everything is okay, pushing our body and mind to its limits, trying to hide our self-perceived faults and failures and striving to achieve what we think is expected of us. But all this comes with a price tag. Our most precious asset of all; our health, starts to suffer. I know. I’ve been there.
In all my years of training, researching, and practicing as a health professional, I always come back to these three core principles: Self care, Do something you love, Connect.
They have provided the constant undercurrent of my practice, and are now my personal ethos for life
After many years using these key principles to guide my patients to better health, function and living, I now make them a part of my own life mantra. I am finally walking the talk… Yes, it took awhile, but I eventually got there!
I have a genuine understanding from my own personal journey that although it is easy to teach these principles, it is not necessarily easy to honour them and bring them into play in your own life. It took me a long time to really ‘get this’. But it doesn’t matter how long it takes. What matters is that you are willing and open.
