One cold winter morning, I was up before the sun to walk to an early bird yoga class. I was bundled in layers to protect me from the cold, and was studying the sidewalk to avoid slipping on the ice, when something told me to look up... I’m glad I did. If I hadn’t, I would’ve missed the beauty in the cold. The frost kissed branches lining the streets were something only reserved for those willing to be up at that very early hour. It made me wonder what other beauty I missed daily by keeping my head down simply to “avoid a fall”.
After that moment, I started becoming more aware of when I would hold back during my day. I started observing how I arrived at decisions and realized how "safe" and under the radar I stayed. I believe there is a time for this, however I also feel that sometimes when we live with our heads down, not only do we miss out on a world around us, but the world misses out on us too. And so here I am, launching my first blog. Years of information, experience, tips and research will be shared here. As a Chiropractor, I have a passion for natural health and I hope this blog contributes to not only improving the health of others, but lights a spark that re-ignites a commitment to self.
I heard someone once point out how health insurance was as much about health as life insurance is about being alive. True health insurance, is investing proactively in supporting, sustaining and strengthening the body while we are still healthy. It is about taking responsibility for our health NOW, and recognizing that health begins within.
I hope to touch on topics relevant to you, the person reading this. Remember, we are all works in progress. Living a full, healthy life is a process, not an event. Personally, I like to spend my time doing things I love with people I love and, like many of you, I am busy and crave simplicity. Half the battle in making a change is often making the decision to do something differently and following through. Whether you are in need of a lifestyle overhaul, or you are on the track of pure health, I am here. Whether you are starting at square one or what i have to share is reinforcing how you already live, we are in this together. Lift your head up and here we go...
