Food & Nutrition: Answering your questions!

I believe that health and happiness is our first line of defence during this period of lockdown and will continue afterwards.

 

Many of the articles I read last week shared the importance of what you eat and the relationship it has to your health, your immunity and your ability to fight and recover from illness. So I asked my dear friend and fellow Health Coach specialising in Nutrition - Tiffany Rowlands - to join me so we could answer many of the questions we received around nutrition, food and health.

 

In this video, we answered all the questions that had been sent in to us, covering a wide range of foodie topics, including:

  • cravings for sweet things, salty things and hot buttery toast!
  • emotional and stress eating 
  • how to have a nutritious breakfast on the run
  • having multiple diets and food likes / dislikes under one roof
  • the impact of menopause on your weight
  • how you can use food to influence how you feel and alleviate some of the symptoms during...

Natalie: Lost & Lonely to Loved & Aligned

 

Natalie came to work with me after being referred by a mutual friend and a previous client.  She had been feeling lost with regards to her purpose and career goals, as well as wanting to make changes to her diet, her lifestyle and also understand how she could improve her relationships.

 

By meeting regularly, over a period f 6 months on my transformational programme, Natalie and I worked through each one of her goals in turn, using different exercises and tools in the sessions and for her to continue to reflect on and do in her own time.  At the end of her programme, Natalie was happy in a new relationship, had built up new habits and routines that made her feel good both physically and mentally and she had a very clear vision of where she wanted to go and achieve in life.

 

Before I started working with Ali, I felt lost and was seeking direction in many aspects of my life. I didn't know where to start with figuring out what I really wanted in...

Jane: From Feeling Flat to Being Radiant!

Jane came to see me after being referred by a mutual friend;  she had been struggling with some health issues and as a result was feeling very 'flat', unlike her usual positive self and was concerned about her future and her purpose going forward.

 

Jane and I met every 2 weeks to discuss her feelings and thoughts and I used talking therapy to allow Jane really say what she needed to say;  we worked through several different exercises and techniques that allowed Jane to really connect with herself, to work through blockers holding her back from moving forward and finally, she found the diamonds within.  In her final session with me, she was radiant.  She was full of energy and smiles and ready for her next chapter in live.

 

When I first approached Ali and started my Heal Yourself Happy Transformational Programme, I was feeling quite lost had lost my mojo - knew that I needed to find my way again but didn’t know where to start. I felt quite rung...

Sleep Solves Everything: 10 ways to get Happy Sleep

In a previous life, I think I must have been a cat.  Or maybe a giant armadillo!  Did you know they sleep around 18 hours a day!  To me that sounds like bliss!  I love sleep.  Especially in the winter, I love to hibernate.  If only I could live by the day light hours!

 

However, in the way we live our lives today, that just isn’t possible.  There is work, endless responsibilities and the latest Netflix release to watch.  As work life balance and boundaries blur in to one, sleep becomes over-rated with phrases such as ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’!  Some of us even wear our lack of sleep as a badge of honour, with workaholism causing a lack of sleep.  Some fear getting the proper sleep also equates to not being passionate enough about the work we do and the life we lead.

 

And yet sleep is vital for our overall physical heath as our body rests and more importantly for our mental health....
