Hello! Welcome to my new blog! Intros are always a bit awkward, so I thought I would start off with the question 'Why?'......Why am I writing a blog on good health?..... Why are you going to read a blog on good health?.......
Well the answer is, I would love for you to come to my 110th birthday party! Okay there is a bit more to it than that, but it seemed a good way to start.
I want to explore what life could be like if we took better care of ourselves and our bodies. I think we sometimes forget that we are in our body. What would life be like if we actually noticed this amazing bit of kit that we happen to be sitting in right now (I don't mean your new BMW SUV by the way), and actually gave it a bit of TLC? What pleasures could be had from living in a body that is operating at its most vital, energetic level, and that continued to do so for as long as possible? Why is this even important? Well, from experience I can tell you it ain't fun when your vehicle breaks down. Breast cancer, age 36, is quite a big break down! I learnt pretty quick that owning a vehicle means you have to spend some time looking after it. I've had to pick up some tips on maintenance, and as I continue to experiment and learn, I want to share it with you.
So now, I'm aiming for 110 years, to finish my morning yoga class, pop out for lunch with my BFFs and then that evening drop dead, face down in my bingo card (possibly due to finally winning the jackpot of $10,000). That is what I'm aiming for, and I tell you what, I don't want to be the oldest person at my own 110th birthday party, I want you to be there with me. I know there is no guarantee of a long life, but even if we don't get to 110, how much better could our lives be if we put a bit more love, kindness and care into our body?
Learning to look after this amazing body of ours, to reconnect with it, and to experience all the many pleasures there are to be had in it - it's a journey. And I want you to come with me, I want us to do this together, me and you, on a journey to good health.
So come and join me......and step one is to move your mouse across to the right hand side of this page and sign up for my weekly newsletter. Let the fun begin!
I'd love to hear what you think about the idea of our bodies as vehicles, and what you do for 'maintenance', or even just to say 'Yes, you would like to attend my 110th party' - please comment below!
