I have been interested in healthy aging ever since I noticed my first grey hair about 25 years ago.
I have always understood the role good nutrition and exercise plays in slowing down the aging process and maintaining good health, but as a working mother of four children I didn’t have a lot of time or patience to commit to a health and wellness routine.
Pole walking for me was the ideal solution. It gave me cardio and weight resistance in one exercise and it didn’t involve a lot of time or cost a lot of money.
Healthy eating was another challenge for me. All the studies pointed the importance of diets that incorporate a lot of fruits and vegetables. I knew I wasn’t eating nearly enough of them, and I certainly wasn’t getting the wide variety Health Canada recommends.
A friend of mine suggested I try Juice Plus+ and it just made sense to me. It was a great way of boosting my nutrition, it took the guesswork out of what supplement to take, and like pole walking, it was simple and affordable.
I retired early from my job as an office manager at an industrial construction company. I enjoyed my job but I wanted more free time to pursue my interests. However, I wanted to have enough income in retirement to stay in my home, help my family and travel.
I decided to turn my interest in health into a part-time business. It gets me out of the house, I meet new people and every day I am learning something new.
There is certainly no shortage of information about health. Every day we are showered with advice, but most of it is insufficiently researched, contradictory and sometimes downright weird.
But there are a few things we can all do to retain our health and vitality and they are surprisingly simple:- Get enough good quality sleep, exercise and do your best to eat well.
If I can assist you with any of this, or if you would like to work with me, please get in touch and lets get started.
