There was a time in my life not too long ago when I really struggled with anxiety. And there was a separate time in my life not to long ago that I also really struggled with depression.
During these times I really relied on my ability to self-coach.
What I mean by that is -- I would use my coaching tools to manage my own mind and try to understand my own emotions.
These tools really helped me then and I am happy to report that I no longer consider myself to struggle with either one of those any more.
The trouble was... even beyond the anxiety and depression, I still felt like I was constantly having to coach myself.
...constantly trying to get through another mood swing.
If you know me I'm sure you think this seems improbable because I am a jolly gal.
I've been dubbed...
... entirely too happy.
... and overly optimistic.
That's my natural state. My preferred state.
But--- internally, I was experiencing such swings in my mood, that I simply KNEW there had to be a better way.
I decided something.
I decided we were not designed to have to coach ourselves out of a bad mood every day.
Instead, I believe our natural state is much lighter.
This post is about that stance.
I am SO excited TO SHARE the four pillars of wellbeing...
I'm all about making things as SIMPLE as possible.
The first two pillars are the most common and you've probably heard of them before.
The third pillar is super important and it involves the work I've been doing the past three years.
The fourth pillar of wellbeing is the way of the future.
The view from here shows great promise for enhanced mental health and wellbeing, and FEELING REALLY GOOD AGAIN.
Okay, without any further delay, here they are...
The FOUR PILLARS of WELLBEING:
1. Nutrition. Food is information. What you put into your body matters. Eat more WHOLE, REAL foods. Incorporate more vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and good fats into your diet. Period.
2. Exercise. Move your dang body. We were not designed to sit all day. MOTION IS NATURE'S LOTION. Utilize it.
3. Mindset. You cannot blame others for your misery without being stuck in your misery forever. When you take personal responsibility for your own happiness, you are free to create it.
4. Gut Health. This one is cutting edge. All health begins in the gut. Tending to your micro-biome is a MUST if you want to experience true wellbeing. What's that look like? Probiotic/prebiotic foods and/or a quality probiotic supplement.
1, 2, 3, 4. BOOOM. So simple.
Don't overthink it.
Just prioritize them.
You've got this!
