It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As an Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that allows you to explore your life issues and struggles which then enables you to articulate, set and achieve your goals. My education, training and experience have  equipped me to help you find the right lifestyle that works best for you.

My programme focuses on professional women who want to create a happy and healthy balance between their professional and personal lives.


Work–life balance is a concept of lifestyle choice. The concept includes prioritising between ‘work’ (career and ambition) and ‘lifestyle’ (health-including diet, exercise and sleep, relationships, pleasure, and spiritual practices). 


Like me, many of you are wearing multiple hats in your efforts to balance both career and home/family responsibilities. So I can fully appreciate what it may be like or feel for you. The balancing act can sometimes interfere the harmony you’re trying to create. 
This can leave you feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, stretched, stressed and burnt out. 


As a health coach, I facilitate space for my clients to explore their issues, make basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. We will then work together to work on areas they want to improve within their own individual circumstance and move forward to achieve that work-life balance they’ve been longing for.

Let me help you to find that healthy work and life balance you've been longing for.



 

 

 Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do.
You can go as far as your mind lets you.
What you believe, remember you can achieve.

The benefits of incorporating meditation into your daily routine

A few years ago, I couldn’t even do mindfulness. My mind was always too busy wondering and for me to be physically still felt like a waste of time, because instead I could be doing something else which could have been more useful.
Life was literally like a conveyer belt and I seemed to thrive on that. Stressed as I was, I just carried on and managed how I knew how – running.

Fast forward a couple of years, as I became more aware of myself and my way of living and being, I started to see the connection between the dots of physical, mental, emotional and psychological well-being. Becoming more aware of how I felt and how things affected me was a good place to start, followed by how my behaviour could affect other people around me, so this was about increasing self-awareness about myself. Then it became about how I responded to people, things, situation, and everything else outside my control and let go of things which I couldn’t control or no longer mattered. The hardest thing I found, and still do sometimes, was the way I responded to people. A great reminder for me on how I respond to people is: ‘your perception of me is a reflection of you; my reaction to you is an awareness of me’. I love this because it removes self-blame in negative situations or encounters and enhances my awareness and taps into my higher self.

So as I was growing in confidence, I felt I was better at containing and managing my emotions, and talking to certain people whom I trusted, reflecting thus improving my attitude and behaviour also helped. Nevertheless, I didn’t find the escape or peace which I didn’t know I could have until I started practising meditation.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always get in the zone of peace and calmness just because I now meditate everyday. But I find it helps me to manage myself so much better.

Essentially, I use meditation to be present in the moment. Sometimes I also use it to visualise my goals and other times to feel grounded and connected with my inner and higher self and the Universe. When I somewhat feel ‘disconnected’ from my inner higher self, the Universe and my spiritual belief, practising meditation gives me back all those. It reminds me to be present, connected, and grounded, it also helps me to focus, and as a result, I feel more at peace and ease with myself.

Since I started my meditation practice, feeling disconnected is becoming less at time goes on. I cannot go a day without meditation. I do it almost first thing in the morning (I say ‘almost’, because the first thing I do is the toilet visit) for 10-15 minutes. It really sets me up for the day ahead, I become calmer but focused. Not only that, I have also noticed recently, my eczema is behaving. It tends to flare up when I feel stressed and I really believe through meditation practice, I do feel less stressed and consequently the triggers for the eczema are reduced.

Meditation may have different effects on different people, so I thought I’d share with you what the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) believes to be of some benefits: 
1.     Reverses the process of thinning your Prefrontal Cortex. This part of the brain will naturally thin as we age.
2.     Benefits the density and structure of the Posterior Cingulate Cortex (CPC) hence can enhance creativity and self-reflection.
3.     Reduces the density of Amyglada. Amyglada is part of the brain that is affected by negative experience such as stress as it causes changes of the density and alters the structure of this region.
4.     Reduces inflammation and strengthen immunity
5.     Strengthens a pain response
6.     Improves the ability to feel more empathy
7.     Helps you become mentally resilient by maintaining your Hippocampus which shapes new memories from experiences. Stress hormones affect the Hippocampus part of the brain to shrink which then interfere with memory and navigation.
8.     Helps lowering your blood pressure hence improving the blood flow throughout your body.
9.     Reduces inflammatory markers for heart disease.

Or this Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Meditation
 

I encourage you to make meditation practice as part of your daily routine, start with 5 minutes. Set your alarm 10 minute earlier and when it goes off, count down 5 4 3 2 1 and up you get! Or if morning is not possible, fit it at the time of the day that suits you best. If you're too busy, you'll need to do this even more.

I welcome your thoughts and comment. Feel free to send me a message or leave a comment.
