My Journey to Health Coach:
The road I journeyed from didn’t begin with me loving greens or veggies. In fact, I hated salads! Yet, I believed I was a fairly healthy person. Why did I think this? Because I believed if you ate moderate-sized portions and chose turkey sandwiches over hamburgers, then you were making healthy choices. Right?
But I wasn’t healthy. Not really.
For years, I frequently suffered from sinus infections, colds, migraines, lackluster energy, fatigue, bloating, stomach upset and poor digestion. I never connected any of my symptoms to my diet, nor did the regular doctors or specialists I sought out to help me with all these nagging pains and concerns. It wasn’t until my early 30s around the year after I left my long career in financial services (to move to Japan with my husband) that I realized there was a strong connection between the foods I ate and the health of my body.
I got to the place in my life where I desperately wanted stable energy and to feel well consistently so I started looking for real, natural solutions, including upgrading up my foods. Curiously, I experimented with various diets from raw to paleo, supplements, and exercise methods. I just wanted to figure out what would serve my body best and what would help me reach my goals. And, a rigid or restrictive plan wasn’t my “right” solution either. I considered not only what I didn’t want to feel/have, but also what I mostly desired, which was glowing energy so I could do and be more!
So with lots of grace and gratitude (and green smoothies), I found the sweet spot in my health and ultimately in my career.
By listening deep to what my body needed and then nourishing it, I transformed my whole life.
It took trial and error so I could discover which foods and habits fueled my energy levels, physical health, and emotional well-being.
Once my health improved my perspective on the rest of my lifestyle habits and practices changed too. With better energy, clarity, and strength, I created new boundaries around sleep, rest, and work without feeling guilty or deprived.
Although my healthy journey started when I left my job and moved to a new country, you don’t have to travel far or leave your job to create your radiant, healthy life. You can start where you are with the first step by saying yes to yourself and your health.
Many of us women are hard-working and generous givers. Givers of our time, energy, money, natural gifts, and love. The problem is that we also sacrifice ourselves in the process. Without putting our nutrition or well-being as a priority, we can find ourselves on the fast path to burnout, total exhaustion, chronic stress and toxic weight. This greatly reduces our ability to positively impact or give back in the long-term.
When you put your health first you’ll have a greater well of resources to nurture, create and transform the lives of others around us.
It’s essential for us to take charge of our health and well-being through nutrition, self-care, movement, and play if we desire to fulfill our purpose.
Through education in holistic nutrition, transformational coaching, and various complimentary health trainings, certifications and tools, I began to coach women to make real changes in their habits and health in a sincere and sustainable way.
I know that with glowing health you can increase your productivity, fulfill your purpose and have more time and energy for what truly matters. I spent a few years alone creating this healthy sweet spot for myself. You don’t have to struggle or feel alone though.
With me alongside as your supportive, knowledgeable and empathetic health coach you can create the body and life you love now…not someday or never.
