How often do you feel this relaxed, with vibrant health and vitality?
Life trundles on and periodically you try to change things wanting to make the difference you long for, but each time you fail to achieve the levels of success you truly want, deserve and have every right to expect. Then understandably you get more disheartened.
There are much better solutions, substantial solutions that make a noticeable difference, and I know because it’s what I’ve been experiencing since I began learning some tools and techniques that my clients wax lyrical about afterwards.
Getting the body you want
Are you using short-term measures when you have long-term weight targets, you know drop so many pounds before you take a job or trip at short notice?
These may be okay in the short-term although I’d likely make a case around what you pay for that in the long-run, but the joined-the-thinking shows that your weight goals are anything but a compartmentalised issue.
If you’re looking for some lasting change that doesn’t keep see-sawing, these are some of the areas to check out in terms of what you’re struggling with:
- Increasing weight that won’t drop off and stay off
- Running on stress-head empty
- Not feeling relaxed enough to take more time to have fun in the bedroom
- Experiencing long-term stress that too easily depletes your energy
- Only have a decent level of energy part of the day
- Have too much to do, with so little time
- Not making time for you
- You’re acquiring more symptoms as you age
- Your body feels like it’s seizing up as the years tick by
- Other mid-life challenges
- Your hormones are playing havoc
- You’re unable to be authentic in certain situations | with certain people
- You bend to the will of others in certain areas of your life
- You’re not being yourself | feeling satisfied or fulfilled
- You get the feeling there-has-to-be-more-to-life-than-this
In more western developed countries we’ve bought into a myth that correlates poor health with aging
As complex as health is if you put all the components of aging, health, stress, life, work and relationships into a Wonka Chocolate Factory Alchemy Machine it would spit out one defining feature about getting older with good health, raised energy and fab vitality which is about taking responsibility.
Before starting my health coaching business, I spent 9-yrs working in tourism (for the over 50’s). And whenever I booked an Octogenarian onto a strenuous holiday such as Walking In The Alps, a trip to Peru, or a Kenyan Safari, I’d generally ask them to summarise their longevity, and the one thing they they all said, was remaining active.
But I’ve coming to realise it’s about much more besides, because you can be old fit and a bit of a misery guts, but what if you want to age fabulously – without going under the knife or it’s bedfellows – with lots of fab fun and silly thrown in.
Then we have to ditch the shitty parts of the past, because they do weight heavily; energetically, emotionally, spiritually, physically and mentally.
There’s only you can do that, no matter how rich fab or famous you are… no assistants on this one.
The myths of aging
Aging is something that infiltrates life in every way of every day, and if you’re not rooted in feeling good about your own aging process, you could easily be swayed into believing a thousand and one myths that filter through and contribute to feeling old.
It’s invariably based on fear, promising to lead you to the fountain of youth if you’ll just buy this cream, that patch, potion or pill.
Aside from momentarily raising your expectations, they falsely lead you into the first myth; that how you age is out-of-your-hands.
It buys into feeling insecure about it, with the flavour of aging wrapped in a gorse of doom and gloom. Believing that you’ll become decrepit, immobile, have dementia, etc is BS. How do you know rit… there’s one way and it’s this…
It be said to be true if it happens to everyone, otherwise the balls in your court. You’re capable of having a self-empowering older life, now in my early sixties, I love getting older.
I’m now more intelligent (in every which way) my concentration is much improved, I have an astute and sceptical mind, I question motives, I’m more open to still being a work in progress. This is what someone said who didn’t even know she wanted to address the topic when we started working together:
I’ve welcomed aging for as long as I can remember. Recently one of my nieces, in her mid-twenties was taking stock of where-next in her life, and fearful that she’d turn round in decades to come, only to find life had passed her by. She asked me what being older is like and I had to confess I love it. She was happy with that and all I can say is that it’s so for me.
Even when I was 17, and my friends wanted to be 18 & 21, but I was looking to turn 30, I had a strong sense that things would only get better… cue music 🙂 and they have
Staying healthy as we age is a big topic, there are lots of factors but I love sharing more of how to get the best of the best out of life by; breaking out-worn habits, stopping stressful thoughts and behaviours, getting your shape back, becoming healthier, happier and more confident than you’ve been in a long time. Because it’s all doable.
There’s no such thing as a stress-free life, but learning the smartest tools to address shit when it comes your way makes all the difference and will ultimately equip you to become your own life expert.
