Thanks for being here! If you’ve never before felt compelled to take your WELLNESS into your own hands, this is surely the year!
I can’t remember a time in my own life when it seemed more important to understand the difference between physical health and wellness; when it was more confusing to know who to trust and where to get information from; when it seemed like our own bodies were a battleground! It’s so important right now to remain grounded in our own values, find our own truth amongst all the agenda and STAY WELL – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
I’ve always been pretty healthy but until I became a mother, it was the well-being of the arrogant rather than a conscious choice to take good care of myself! Looking out for the interests of another living creature sure does change one’s perspective and I felt the weight of that whenever my small one ran a fever, experienced a sniffle, vomited… I wanted to stop her pain and I wanted to do the best for her that I could.
By the time I was a mother, times four, I had discovered what it felt like to hold space for an unwell child and to physically hold them through illness. I had also started to see the body in its whole form rather than a series of separate systems. I noticed things like a good diet, good quality sleep, non-toxic products, activity levels, how much control everyone had over their day and life and how we related as a family, all fed into how WELL we felt and how we rolled over the bumps in the road – or whether we didn’t!
2020 is a challenge, that’s for sure, but we have a stack of tools to help you navigate social isolation, uncertainty, staying connected as a family and the type of wholeness you experience when you align the physical and emotional.
So grab a cup of herbal tea and get comfy as you delve into what we’ve got to offer this week.
