The 7 Principles
The Wellbeing Way is based on 7 principles:
Our bodies, as with everything in life, run on the basic universal law; what you put in, is what you get out. Not only just in obvious daily tasks such as our nutrition and exercise programmes but in everything we do with our lives and I mean everything! Our jobs, stress levels, relationships, time spent in the traffic, or watching the news: everything we do impacts our bodies and therefore our overall well-being. The Wellbeing Way looks at all of these inputs to assess what is out of balance.
Illness is a sign our bodies give us when something isn’t quite right. A warning signal to re-evaluate all aspects of our lives - to look at what we are putting into them.
Our bodies, minds and spirit can no longer be seen as separate. They are inextricably linked and need to be treated together. To reach a state of well-being we need to evaluate not only our physical bodies but all aspects of our lives, including our nutritional, emotional, mental and spiritual components.
We are unique individuals in every way and need to be seen as such. This ranges from the foods we eat, what exercise suits us best; and what we need to de-stress. There are also many ways to heal and all of them have their place. We need only find the different therapies and ways that work for us as individuals.
Change is difficult but need not be daunting. What is needed is a good support base and the realisation that the slower the change happens, the more sustainable it is.
Often we are forced to re-evaluate our lives because of a crisis. In most cases we are given many warning signals before the crisis hits us. The Wellbeing Way shows us how to start listening to what our bodies are saying so we can hopefully avoid the crisis altogether.
And most importantly, The Wellbeing Way’s main goal is to remind us that we are here to live our lives to the fullest. To love and experience life for all it is, being fully awake and present, from the glass of bubbles to the meditation retreat. We do have the right to be happy and fulfilled in all aspects of our lives.
