Ask anyone what their basic desires are and sure enough to be happy, healthy and to love and be loved would be top of most peoples’ list. They certainly are for me. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? Happiness. Health. Love. So why do so many of us fall short on these basic needs. Why are we suffering from anxiety and depression at earlier ages? Why are we causing ourselves to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes, skin conditions and other illnesses at an alarming growth rate? Why are our relationships teeming with drama, envy and abuse?
Too often, I hear stories about people who run to the chemist to pop a pill for a symptom that they’re suffering from, when they could be utilizing natural therapies and/or making lifestyle changes to target the cause. Whether it’s reaching for that 3rd cup of coffee during the day to get a burst of energy; depending on that cup of coffee to stimulate your bowel movements; thinking that excessive weight gain and health problems are just a “normal” part of getting older; tossing and turning in bed at night or relying on sleeping tablets to get to sleep; suffering from anxiety and depression, freaking out at the “little things;” losing your temper at those that you love most because you haven’t dealt with another issue appropriately; or simply “beating yourself up” and criticizing yourself over something that really isn’t that big a deal in the scheme of things. That is not what life is all about!
It is my belief, that we all have the ability to create and enjoy a fulfilling, exciting, loving, adventurous, happy and healthy life. We all deserve to radiate with positive energy, starting the day packed full of motivation and maintain that lively feeling throughout the day; handle ordinary day-to-day stress calmly and with confidence; end the day peacefully, slipping into bed relaxed, before easing into a tranquil sleep. We also deserve to have and maintain loving and nurturing relationships with other people and, more importantly, with ourself.
Life today is fast paced. The majority of us are faced with stress on a day-to-day basis whether it be physically, emotionally or spiritually. It is inevitable that most of us will come across challenges in our day-to-day life. In order to achieve optimum wellness and inner harmony, we need to learn how to deal with those challenges and nurture ourselves on all levels, inside and out.
This book is designed to help you create the healthier and happier changes that you’ve been seeking in your life by demonstrating how easy it is to incorporate small changes and self-caring rituals into your everyday life that promote inner health and harmony in the face of life’s little pressures.
