One of the things I’ve learned from helping people grow wellthy is that it’s very common for them to feel overwhelmed at the beginning.
I’ve heard something like this 100’s of times. ‘I want to lose weight but I don’t know where to start.’
The reality is that the path to wellness is wide open to anyone, and it’s so much easier than most people have been led to believe. Here are 4 steps to consider in your journey to wellth.
Pain can be sneaky. It can take a little detective work to figure out where the source of the pain is coming from. This is because the pain may be a symptom of another underlying issue.
Here's an example we are all familiar with. A 45-year old man stops talking mid-sentence and grabs his left arm in pain. What do you immediately think of? Heart attack?
Of course. Given that we've all been taught that a heart attack can cause symptoms in other places like the left arm or jaw. This is a prime example of the concept of referred pain. Here are 3 different kinds of referred pain.
The “no pain no gain” myth has been circulating in the wellness industry for decades. It became popular in the 1980's as one of Jane Fonda's favorite aerobics catchphrases, and it's been causing harm ever since.
"No pain no gain" is the idea that you get greater rewards by engaging in hard or painful work. Another way to express the same sentiment is “go hard or go home,” but I like to refer to it as the “punishment mentality.”
