Are you honouring your values?

Let me ask you a question: Have you ever wondered about your life’s purpose? Or really thought about your most important values in life?

Before starting my training as a co-active coach I hadn’t either! I had thought about what I wanted out of life or what would make me happy, but I think the really important decisions in my life were made completely unconsciously. Continue reading

How to make your dream come true

The stories are everywhere, always uplifting, always inspiring:

  • The woman who created a wellness clinic in her inner-city neighbourhood.
  • The man who lost 200 pounds after being housebound for a decade.
  • The mother who worked tirelessly bringing her sick child to radiant health.
  • The grandfather who quit cigarettes to realise his dream of running a marathon.

Every day people just like you go out into the world and make their dreams come true. They did it. Why not you? You’re no different than any of these successful individuals.

What Does a Health Coach Do?

30 day winning womanA Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who helps others feel their best through individualized food and lifestyle changes that meet their unique needs and health goals. I offer my health coaching services in my private coaching practice (online or in person) with one-on-one coaching.

Health coaching isn’t about one diet or one way of living. Instead, I focus on bio-individuality – the idea that we’re all different and have unique dietary, lifestyle, emotional, and physical needs. This means that we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to health and wellness. Health Coaches work with clients to help them discover how to fuel their bodies and become the healthiest, happiest versions of themselves. Continue reading

Is self-care selfish?

This morning I decided to put myself first. I decided to go workout and not spend the morning with my boys. I wasn’t home last weekend so I felt I should stay with them. The kids hadn’t seen me at all last weekend and it is limited how much time we spend together during the week. So when Saturday morning approached I thought it would be best to stay home and spend the morning with them. But then I started asking myself – best for whom? Best for me or the kids?

Self-care without feeling Guilty

Should I feel guilty for doing nothing?

I just came back from a 3-day workshop. 3 days of extreme intense learning, processing

and deepening on a very personal level. It was an amazing experience and I feel completely fulfilled and very happy. But I am also beat. I am tired and I am exhausted.

New year, new you?

A new year has started and with it many new resolutions – am I right? What is your resolution for this year? Is it health related? Is this the year you are finally going to shed the extra kilos that have gathered over the years? Or the year you are going to get your eating habits under control? Or is this the year you are finally going to put yourself first and do something good for yourself?

Most people are super motivated to get fit and healthy at the turn of the new year. Fitness centers have their busiest month in January because everyone wants to get back in shape – or simply get in shape.

January is also the month most people take a break from drinking and unhealthy eating. Are you one of them?

I used to do that too. One year I even managed to stop smoking for the first 3 weeks of January – that was my first ever attempt to quit. It didn’t go so well because drinks and cigarettes just had to go hand in hand, and by the third week I had a drink in one hand…

That feeling is probably life telling you that you are trying to be something you are not. Continue reading
