nourish your roots to grow + thrive
Before I became a massage therapist, I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Certified Holistic Health Coach. When I needed more than recipes and diets, I obtained a certificate in the Transformational Coaching Method and its Mastery level program to work on a deeper, psychological level of habit and behavior change. I continue to be humbled by how much my life changed because of the "skills labs" where we practiced coaching each other. Looking back, I realize that it was that exchange of feeling heard and validated, receiving fresh new ideas, broadening and expanding my perspective of self, feeling safe to let my emotions out, and letting my mind tire out to actually let go of the excuses and to just try the new food, or go for the walk or change my job (that no longer fulfilled me).
Life is energy. Energy is life. All organic life requires energy. Humans get energy in many ways but namely through sleep, food and water, exercise (which releases energy from our muscles) and positive experiences. Everyone I know has had the experience of feeling better after they have had a chance to do something they love where they lose track of time = soul food.
Unfortunatey, most of us do more things every day that deplete our energy rather than replenish our energy - jobs we don't like, food that isn't actually food but some food-like substance, unhealthy relationships, never ending to-do lists and overwhelm, too much alcohol, not enough sleep. We tend to over-do as modern day humans and as a result, we are not feeling very well.
The great paradox of our time is that most of our sicknesses are of our own making. "Nine out of the top ten killers, such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke are caused by the food we eat, water we drink, houses we live in and offices we work in... Improving diet and exercise and removing toxins and stressors from the home and workplace have a profound and lasting effect on the prevention and treatment of the majority of modern, chronic diseases. "(Breath, Jame Nestor)
I would add prioritizing positive experiences like doing things we love and spending time with people we love.
We’re all in this life together doing the best we can! Support from safe, loving people in a trusting environment is invaluable and I'm here to do just that.
