Our Health is In Our Hands

The pillars of our health are diet, exercise, sleep, emotional health and mindset.

Diet Is Pillar Number 1

Eat lots of vegetables and less packaged foods!

Exercise is Pillar Number 2

Movement is life!

You don’t have to do heaps of exercise.

How to Love Your Life Without Alcohol. Podcast Episode 16

Alcohol is widely accepted in society today. It’s considered normal to drink large amounts of alcohol because it’s fun and helps us to socialise.

We’ve all been there. I don’t know about you but I look back on my University years and my liver shudders. Medical students are some of the worst offenders when it comes to alcohol consumption.

Alcohol is Bad For Us

The sad thing is that alcohol is bad for us. I know many people don’t like to think about it but alcohol damages our bodies.

Much easier just to pour yourself another beer and forget about the consequences.

Alcohol is a risk factor for many cancers. Drinking alcohol in excess damages our livers, pancreas, hearts and immune system.

(For more horrible details of what alcohol can do, check out this article.)

What is “Excess” Alcohol?

The problem is that none of us think we drink in excess. We think everyone else drinks...

Day 1 of the 5 Day Change Challenge. Weight Loss and Healthy Eating

Making changes to our lives can be challenging. 95% of our brain's function is subconscious. Our brains like to be efficient and do the same thing over and over again. This is great when it comes to brushing our teeth, but not so great if that habit is "eat cake when I'm stressed."

The good news is that we can re-write our habits so that they serve us!

Day 1 of the 5 Challenge. The Problem

Sheena writes:

"It’s not so much the weight as the feeling fabulous - or not.

I am going on holiday in 12 weeks. I am fat and I certainly don’t feel fabulous! I’m not obese but my belly is a lot more round than I like.

It’s momentum really. I am pretty sure I’ll lose a decent amount of weight before our holiday but getting started is hard and so is keeping going - especially once the big event is over. There’s a good chance I’ll be chubby again next spring lol"

This is such a great question and brings up lots of points to chat about.

How to Create Habits that Serve You. And Help You Live a Healthy, Amazing Life. Podcast Episode 15.

We are creatures of habit. We do most of our daily actions out of habit. Without thinking.

This means that habits can help us feel better, get more fit and healthy.

Or they can make us feel worse. Eating out of habit. Not exercising out of habit.

Once we’re “in a habit”, it’s easy to maintain.

But why do we so often think, “I can’t be bothered to create that habit”?

Often it’s because we can’t see the benefit in that small action.

We only look at the “10 minute walk” and think, “how is that going to make a difference?”

How to Make Habits That Serve You Podcast

The Compound Affect of Habits

Instead of looking at the result of doing the habit once, we have to look at the result of doing the habit over a longer period of time.

What will happen if I do 10 minutes of yoga every day for a year?

Rather than looking at just 10 minutes of yoga.
