Wellness Ideas - Health Mind & Body
A Wellness Coach assists people to become well and healthy by achieving a positive and nurturing
health, mind and body combined attitude and lifestyle.

in terms of illness, continually "battling" disease, looking for the right drug to "cure" sickness, and so
Language Of Disease
"I hope I don't catch the flu - I can't afford to get sick."
"I've got to kick this cold."
"My arthritis is killing me today."
"I'm fighting off this infection."
Can you see - really, can you feel inside - how our language and focus predisposes us to create a

Some people ask my advice, yet choose to smoke, drink, eat junk food all day, blame the world for their misery
and hate everyone who doesn't think like they think. All that hate and anger is very toxic. If they don't really
want to be well, all the herbs in the world won't help.
For most of us, it just takes a teensy shift in perspective to embrace wellness rather than sickness. Sometimes
all I have to do is explain this to someone and the light bulb just comes on.
