Good Health starts with 4 Fundamental questions

Updated: Apr 22


When considering your health and wellbeing there are 4 key questions I ask you to ask yourself.


Question 1 - Am I safe?

“No” will trigger the hormone - Adrenaline and cortisol. Why is this important to know? Check out my video to learn more.



Question 2 - Do I have enough ENERGY?

This will trigger the hormones - Cortisol and insulin


We are electrical. We are batteries. And we have a wavelength.


Energy looks like a wavelength and behaves like a wavelength. It has a frequency, a pulse, a vibration. Your wavelength may be shallow or deep and it will change throughout the day. However, many items can interrupt our circuit, changing our frequency curve.


Things like caffeine, food, sugar all have an impact on our frequency causing a reaction that will support and nourish or deplete our energies. Eating a balanced diet and at regular intervals helps to keep our energy and blood sugar levels consistent, preventing us from suffering with the spikes and crashes that happen when we skip meals or have an erratic eating pattern that forces our body regular in to the stress zone. For more information on this take a look at my blog on the impact of blood sugars on our emotions


In my health workshop, "energy" is one of the 4 key pillars we look at with regards to our health and movement, and during the workshop I give you the tools to manage your wavelength, so you can recognise the roller-coaster without being pulled into it! I will teach you how to:

  • Go with the wave - to overview and manage it, not be dictated to by it.

  • Learn how to bring yourself back to the ‘median’ the balanced state

  • How to acknowledge and support your body when you are at the bottom of a wave, so you can feel as balanced as when you’re in the centre even when you’re not


Question 3 - Do I need to REST & RESTORE?


The body has a natural daily cycle of hormones, know as the circadian rhythms. This sleep-wake cycle is an important part of ensuring that the different processes of the body occur at certain points during the day. Your job, home life daily habits, sleep, stress and exercise all have an impact on your circadian rhythm.


When it comes to improving our health and movement, sleep and our energy levels play a big part. Allowing the body time to rest and restore is an essential part of good health.


It may feel like this something we can control through diet or caffeine intake, but in fact there is a natural rhythm that our bodies tend to follow. I look at this aspect of our health and cycles in my half day "Take Control of Your Health" workshop



Question 4 - Do I need support?

Our bodies are driven by cycles, stages and rhythms which are always working to bring us back to homeostasis (or balance). However, our lifestyles, habits and environment all influence the ability of our bodies to support us with ease, or not.


Taking the time to understand more about your own body and what works for your is important. The more awareness you bring to yourself and the subtle ways that your body communicates to you, the more opportunity you have to create routines and habits that help you thrive.


Remember also that support comes not just from within us - recognising those early warning symptoms and signs from your body, telling you it needs help and taking action - but also in recognising when we need help and support from others. How supported are you in reaching your goals? Find those around you who help not hinder you on the journey. Find your Tribe.
