77 Inspirational Quotes for Healthcare Workers (with Slideshow)

These 77 inspirational quotes for healthcare workers are dedicated to all healthcare workers, those brave souls who lay their own lives on the line every day for their patients.  (Scroll to the end for a slideshow presentation of all the quotes.)

These inspiring quotes are also a tribute to all those who work behind the scenes in the healthcare industry, ensuring that our systems work and our services are delivered on time and all those working for the greater good.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

I think health care is more about love than most other things. 

If there isn’t at the core of these two human beings who have agreed to be in a relationship where one is trying to help relieve the suffering of another, which is love, you can’t get to the right answer here.

Inspirational Quotes by Spiritual Leaders

Mother Teresa

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person. 

I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Dalai Lama

In this beautiful interview, the 14th Dalai Lama expresses his gratitude to healthcare workers:

So, regarding this illness, noble doctors, nurses, are even willing to sacrifice their own life. I really appreciate. Wonderful.

Selfish, think just (about) yourself is narrow. Shortsighted. …So altruism is (the) ultimate source of happiness…Altruism, that really brings inner peace, inner strength.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Real compassion comes from seeing the suffering of others. You feel a sense of responsibility, and you want to do something for them.

There is one aspect to our experience of suffering that is of vital importance. When you are aware of your pain and suffering, it helps you to develop your capacity for empathy, the capacity that allows you to relate to other people’s feelings and suffering. This enhances your capacity for compassion towards others.

As you breathe in, cherish yourself. As you breathe out, cherish all beings.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.

Reverend Edward Everett Hale

Author, Historian and Clergyman

I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but still, I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.

Never bear more than one trouble at a time. Some people bear three kinds – all they have had, all they have now, and all they expect to have.

Marianne Williamson

Author –  Excerpt from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. 

We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ 

Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God. 

Your playing small does not serve the world. 

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

 We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. 

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Vietnamese Buddhist Monk

Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos – the trees, the clouds, everything.

The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom.

There is no way to happiness – happiness is the way.

Inspirational Quotes by World Leaders

Inspirational Quotes by World Leaders

Theodore Roosevelt

American President

Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.

Mahatma Gandhi

Indian Lawyer and Politician

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service to others.

Where there is love there is life.

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.

Nelson Mandela

South African President

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

I’ll close this post off with some humour because I’ve found that when I’m not feeling my best laughter truly heals.

Enjoy these wise words by Hunter Doherty Adams, better known as Patch Adams.  You may remember the wonderful movie in his name, where Patch Adams was played by the late great Robin Williams.

Hunter Doherty “Patch” Adams 

Physician, Comedian, Social Activist and Author

You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.

Remember laughing? Laughter enhances the blood flow to the body’s extremities and improves cardiovascular function.

Laughter boosts the immune system and helps the body fight off disease, cancer cells as well as viral, bacterial and other infections.

Laughter releases endorphins and other natural mood-elevating and pain-killing chemicals, improves the transfer of oxygen and nutrients to internal organs.

Please live a healthy life – medicine is an imperfect science.

Oh, and as a parting shot, here’s a final quote by Patch Adams that seems fitting right now – this one goes out to anyone waiting in a long queue to have their vaccination.

Waiting in line is a great opportunity to meet people, daydream, or play.

Daily Health Tips from Dr Ryan Shelton (Zenith Labs)

On a scale of 1 to 10, how healthy would you say you are right now?

If you rated yourself above an 8, what daily health habits do you have in place to get you to that number?

If you rated yourself below an 8, it might be time to put some daily health habits in place.

It’s often our daily lifestyle habits that determine our health.  This is why we’ve put together a quick list of daily health tips from Dr Ryan Shelton Zenith Labs.

Daily Health Tips from Dr Ryan Shelton Zenith Labs

It's often our daily lifestyle habits that determine our health. This is why we compiled this quick list of daily health tips from Dr Ryan Shelton Zenith Labs.

1. Be Mindful About Your Food Choices

Watch this video below on Dr. Shelton’s personal experience of being on a vegan diet for a year.

Dr. Shelton said that at that stage of his life, it was difficult to maintain a vegan diet because he found it difficult in a social setting.  All his friends would go out and eat burgers and he felt like an outsider.

Dr. Shelton cautions you to be mindful about your food choices if you follow any kind of restrictive diet, like veganism, because you might find yourself deficient in certain nutrients.

For example, if you go vegan, make sure you eat:

  • fruit, nuts and seeds
  • veggies especially green leafy vegetables
  • beans
  • legumes
  • sprouts
  • whole grains

Even if you go wholefood plant-based vegan, you may still need to supplement with certain nutrients such as Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D.

If you follow my blog regularly, it may not surprise you that I agree with Dr. Shelton’s advice in this video. Because I’ve been through a similar learning curve. I’ve been following a plant-based diet for a while (since October 2020).  

At first, I focused on eliminating the foods I shouldn’t eat:

  • Processed and Refined Foods
  • Meat, Chicken and Fish
  • Dairy Products

However, I didn’t pay enough attention to introducing new foods that I wasn’t used to eating, like beans, whole grains, legumes, and seeds.  I added the basics (fruit and veggies), but that wasn’t enough to get the full benefit of going plant-based.

Dr. Neal Barnard’s 21-Day Vegan Kickstart has been a great resource for trying out some new recipes and incorporating more beans and whole grains into my diet.

Whether you’re vegan, plant-based, or following a different diet, it’s important to be mindful of your food choices.

  • Notice which foods make you feel sluggish or uncomfortable and avoid them.
  • Notice which foods make you feel energised and vibrant and eat more of them.
  • Notice when you eat and when you tend to overeat.
  • Notice when you’re thirsty and which drinks actually quench your thirst.

2. Focus on Your Happiness

Dr Ryan Shelton Zenith Labs on HappinessDr. Shelton believes it’s as important to take care of your mental and emotional health as it is to take care of your physical health.

To be truly happy and fulfilled, it’s important to focus on these 4 aspects of life.

ONE: Your Relationships

How often do you laugh and goof around with your family and friends?

TWO:  Exercise

How often do you move? Do you have a physical activity you enjoy doing daily?

THREE: Spirituality 

Do you spend time in prayer or thanks?

Are you a giver?

Do you forgive easily?

FOUR: Meditation

Do you take time to breathe deeply or meditate each day?

3. Be Well Rested

Most of us know that we need to do our best to get 6 to 8 hours a night of sleep to feel well-rested in the morning.

It’s not always easy to get to sleep though. Many people can’t switch off their minds when they go to bed and lie awake at night tossing and turning.  This can lead to much distress at night and can make you feel groggy in the morning.

Here are Dr. Shelton’s top tips for getting quality sleep and, if you’re up for it and are feeling brave, you can try his bonus master tip at the end.

  1. Get in some vigorous exercise during the day
  2. Switch off all technology (TV, tablet, laptop, mobile) a little while before going to bed
  3. Make sure your bedroom is as dark as possible (get blackout curtains or blinds)
  4. Silence is golden, especially for a good night’s sleep
  5. Make sure your room is a comfortable temperature (use a fan if too hot, heating if it’s too cold)

Bonus Master Tip:  Watch the video below (if you dare).

Aligning all 8 Dimensions of Health and Wellness

8 Dimensions Health Wellness

Health and Wellness have been a big focus in my life.  I started teaching Aerobics when I still in High School and took over my Mom’s gym shortly after I finished school.

A couple of years later I also started studying and practising a number of different modalities, including Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Shiatsu.   I became particularly interested in holistic health and healing.  I was fascinated by how the mind, body and spirit are all connected.

I delved deep into every aspect of health and wellness over the years because I wanted to know how every secret on how to live long and prosper.

And yet, it took Harold at Bodybuilder Solutions to introduce me to the idea of the 8 Dimensions of Health and Wellness. Have a look at this post: https://bodybuildersolutions.com/the-best-resources-for-mental-health-and-physical-wellness/

And, here they are.

All 8 Dimensions of Health and Wellness

I’ve placed them in the order that makes it easiest for me to remember, starting with the 4 that align with some of the chakras (or energy centres in the body).  I used their corresponding chakra colours on the infographic below.

There is a tremendous benefit in aligning all 8 dimensions of health and wellness. Because that's when you feel a sense of peace, satisfaction and well being. Do you know all the 8 Dimensions of Health and Wellness? If not, discover them in my latest post as well as keys I've learned over the years to help me align them. This post was sponsored by Bodybuilder Solutions. All opinions are my own. #8DimensionsHealthWellness #8DimensionsWellnessChart #8DimensionsWellnessInfographic #health #wellness #wellbeing #selfcare

1. Physical (the base or root chakra)

2. Emotional (the sacral chakra)

3. Intellectual  (the solar plexus)

4. Spiritual (the crown)

The last 4 are not energy centres in our body but relate to aspects of our daily lives that can impact our health and wellness.

5. Social (Relationships)

6. Occupational (Work)

7. Financial (Money)

8. Environmental (Surroundings)

Related: What is Health and Wellness About?

While it’s virtually impossible to be focusing on all 8 of these all the time and have them all in perfect balance, it’s certainly something worth striving for.

You might put so much of your time and energy into mastering one aspect of your life that the others go out of kilter.

On the other hand, when you achieve success in one area it may give you the confidence and motivation to tackle other areas of your wellbeing.

And there is a tremendous benefit in aligning each dimension of health and wellness and feeling they are all working together in harmony. Because that’s when you feel a sense of peace, satisfaction and well being.  A feeling that all is right with your world and you’re doing just fine.

In this post, I’ll aim to give you some of the keys I’ve learned over the years that have helped me achieve this alignment in my own life, in the hopes they help you too.

Let’s take it from the top.

1. Physical Health and Wellness

Physical Health and Wellness

Deep down I think we all know the answers to this. They are simple to learn, but not easy to implement.

  • Exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes, at least 3 or 4 times a week)
  • Eat nutritious foods (especially plenty of fresh fruit and veg)
  • Get enough sleep (6 to 8 hours a night)
  • Drink enough water (around 8 glasses a day)

Those are the basics.  We all know them but we get caught up in what this expert claims and what that diet promotes and what that organisation recommends.

Related: Natural Ways to Support the Immune System

Here are my personal keys to making these work for you.


You’ll only do it regularly if you love it and can incorporate it into your life. So find something you really enjoy doing. For me, right now, it’s walking my dog and jumping on the trampoline with my son, because that’s all I have time for.   But at other stages of my life, it’s been swimming, gym, dancing, yoga, pilates.   What moves you?

Nutritious Foods

I recently went wholefood plant-based which means I mostly eat a healthy vegan diet. Though I know that’s a big ask, so if this just sounds too extreme to you, please start adding more fresh fruit and veg into your diet and avoid eating overly processed foods and especially processed meats.

I have discovered it’s a brilliant lifestyle choice, especially if you are overweight or have heart disease, Type 2 diabetes or any other preventable health condition.   But don’t take my word for it. I’m just following the experts.

Here’s a great overview of plant-based nutrition by Dr Anthony Lim

Disclaimer: Please note that none of the recommendations in this post is intended to replace the advice of your Medical Doctor. Please consult a doctor or registered health practitioner if you have any health concerns.


Stop all digital activity, including watching TV at least half an hour before you go to sleep to have a good night’s rest.


Water or tea is best.  One or two coffees a day is fine. A glass of wine a night (or your favourite drink) is fine but don’t overindulge too often.  In my book, sodas are a no-no.  I could go into the long explanation of why but then we’d never get to the rest of the post. 

2. Emotional Health and Wellness

Emotional Health and Wellness

We all want to be happy and free from anxiety, yet, sadly, most people aren’t.  We live in a world where millions of people are suffering from depression, anxiety disorders, insomnia and nervous tension and have resorted to medication for relief.

There are many natural ways to be happy and free from worry and I believe it starts with choosing happiness.

Once I made a conscious decision to live a happy life, the natural ways found me.

Here are some of the things that make me feel happy and at peace.

  • Guided Meditation or Visualisation
  • Being out in nature
  • Being in contribution
  • Caring for loved ones
  • Playing with or reading to my children
  • Caring for pets
  • Dancing, singing or listening to music

But what about those stubborn or particularly heavy emotions you just can’t seem to shake?

I’ve found Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Tapping) to be most useful in helping me release unwanted emotions.

For example, here’s a tapping session I did on Disappointment.

Once you know the basics of how to EFT, you can tap on any emotion that’s upsetting or depressing you.

The deeper you go, the more relief you feel, which could mean working on childhood wounds or past hurts that have stuck with you for years.

3. Intellectual Health and Wellness

Intellectual Health and Wellness

To be healthy intellectually, it’s important to use your mind by doing things like:

  • reading
  • study
  • research
  • travelling
  • and other intellectual pursuits that broaden your mind

It’s equally important to clear your mind of stress, worry and limiting beliefs.

I read a funny meme at a coffee shop the other day.

It said: “Give me coffee to change the things I can change and wine to accept the things I can’t.”

I’ve discovered that what causes most of our pain, suffering and stress is believing things should be different than they are.

So my best piece of advice for a happy life is to accept those things you can’t change and change the things you can.  i.e. Do your own inner work.  Let go of all those thoughts about what others did or should have done, what they said or should have said.

Instead, turn your thoughts to who you are, who would like to be around and what you would like to do with your time. Be in your own business.

Again, easy to say, not so easy to do. Until you meet Byron Katie and use her simple technique to unbundle those stresses and beliefs and turn them around.

Byron Katie designed a process of questioning your stressful thoughts, called The Work.

Here’s Katie doing The Work with someone on How to Have a Clear Mind and Healthy Body.

The Work is a great way to get clear on the thoughts that have been holding you back or dragging you down, sometimes for years.

I’ve found the best breakthroughs in my own life have come when I start out by doing The Work and then shift into EFT if big emotions come up.

These processes sound simple but they are life-altering. Try them out for yourself, especially on your most painful experiences and you are likely to see what I mean.

4. Spiritual Health and Wellness

Spiritual Health and Wellness

Our spiritual journey is deeply personal and a path only we can walk. This journey is usually ignited by the religion, faith or path we have followed since childhood.  For me, that faith was Christianity and it led me to A Course in Miracles.

Learning and teaching A Course in Miracles has given me tremendous peace.

Here’s one of my favourite lessons in A Course in Miracles.

Lesson 47, God is the strength in which I trust.

The spiritual perspective is that pain and suffering are caused by believing we are separate from God.

In a sense, this is the same concept Byron Katie teaches, just in different words. Where Katie might call it questioning what is or questioning the truth, on a spiritual level, when we question what is, we are questioning God.

When you draw nearer to God in…

  • prayer
  • praise
  • meditation
  • stillness
  • communing with nature, or
  • when you give love, and
  • forgive yourself and others..

you access your God-mind where you can safely embrace the peace that passes all understanding.

5. Social Health and WellnessSocial Health and Wellness

Social health and wellness relates to our relationships.

We all know that if we are in an abusive relationship, whether it’s a parent, partner, child, work colleague or friend, it can take its toll on our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

We also know that when our children “get in the wrong crowd”, their health can suffer.  Peer pressure and social pressure can drive people to do things they would never do on their own.

Just as unhealthy relationships can be devastating for our personal wellbeing, healthy relationships can turn our health around.There is a tremendous benefit in aligning each dimension of health and wellness and feeling they are all working together in harmony. Because that's when you feel a sense of peace, satisfaction and well being. #8DimensionsHealthWellness #8DimensionsWellnessPin

In my life, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have wonderful parents as role models.  My Dad was a Minister so I grew up in the Church. That really helped me build a strong healthy social structure within a loving community.

That foundation helped me seek out healthy role models at school and in the workplace.

It is far more difficult for children who grow up with unhealthy role models at home, to make healthy choices in their adult relationships.   This is where public service becomes important.

Our relationships with those in authority are extremely important, especially when we are younger and still building our strength and courage to stand up to authority when needed.

One amazing Grandmother, one child-centred Teacher or one caring Sunday School Teacher can change the trajectory of a child’s life and make the world of difference in a community.

If we want to see a healthy society, the responsibility falls on each one of us to give back to the community in whichever way we can.

6. Occupational Health and WellnessOccupational Health and Wellness

For me, occupational health and wellness have always started with being passionate about your work.

Job satisfaction is a huge part of your overall happiness as well as your health and wellbeing.  After all, most of us are working for the greater part of our day.

What’s interesting to note is that job satisfaction seems to have increased in 2020, according to this article: https://legaljobs.io/blog/job-satisfaction-stats/.

Perhaps the pandemic is creating a happier workforce because more people have been able to work at home or perhaps it’s because people value their jobs more now that so many jobs have been cut during the pandemic.

My best advice on the work front is similar to my advice on exercise. Find something you love to do, something that makes your heart sing, something that makes you jump out of bed in the morning.

Get to know your personality, your strengths, your weaknesses and be your biggest advocate.

7. Financial Health and Wellness

Financial Health and Wellness

Our relationship with money is usually complex.

Financial wellness is not only about how you make money, spend money or save money but also how you think and feel about money.

We grow up with a number of beliefs around money and they are not always healthy.

If you faced lack in childhood and you don’t address your money beliefs and money blocks, you may be facing lack in adulthood too.

So I would start by doing the internal work.

  • Examine your money beliefs and create new healthy beliefs.
  • Figure out why you want to make money
  • Where you want to spend your money
  • How much you want to keep and
  • Where you want to invest your money
  • And then you can turn your attention to the how.

If you’ve been hitting a few money blocks, you may find these money afformations helpful.  Afformations are much like affirmations, except they are questions rather than statements.

Isn’t it interesting how all these dimensions tie-up?  When you look at one dimension, you can see how each plays into the other.

  • Your work affects your finances.
  • Your thoughts and feelings affect your finances.
  • Your relationships affect your finances.
  • Your physical health can affect your work which in turn can affect your finances, etc.

And of course, vice versa.  Each dimension of health and wellness impacts the other.

8. Environmental Health and WellnessEnvironmental Health and Wellness

Your environment can affect your health in many ways.

For example, living in the city is considered more dangerous to your health than living in a small town out in the countryside. Not just because of the faster pace, traffic congestion and added stress but also because of the smog and noise pollution.

Cities bombard and sometimes overload our senses.

Your home or work environment can also affect your health. Most people find living or working gin a chaotic or cluttered environment to be more stressful than a clean, well-organized home or office.

And then there’s our impact on the environment, how we contribute to the health of our environment.

We all know by now that we can make simple lifestyle changes to improve our environment:

  • Recycle
  • De-clutter
  • Conserve Water
  • Plant trees and flowers
  • Use natural products
  • Consume less (minimalism)

But did you know that the single most impactful thing you can do for the environment is to stop eating meat?

Animal agriculture is having a devastating effect on the environment.

This video explains how the meat and dairy industry works.

Here are just a few ways eating a vegan or plant-based diet, positively impacts the environment:

  • Saves water (because our livestock consumes a lot more water than we do)
  • Reduces greenhouse gases, the leading cause of climate change
  • Reduces air pollution
  • Protects the rainforests
  • Protects endangered animals

Of course, the choice is always yours.  It’s not easy to stop doing something you’ve done all your life, especially if it’s something you enjoy, like eating meat or cheese.

I have found that when I find enough compelling reasons to make a change, I make it.  And it sticks.


I hope you enjoy implementing some of my key pointers on the 8 Dimensions of Health and Wellness into your life.  I invite you to play with these ideas.

Try one or two of them on and see if they fit.  I’d love to hear which ideas resonated with you. Feel free to leave a comment below.

So today, we’ll give you a chance to brainstorm all the characteristics you would apply to yourself once you’re successful.

Maybe your definition of success is steeped in thrills and spills and adventure.

You might want to invent something, create something or build something.

Maybe you’d feel successful if you achieved enlightenment.

Or maybe success to you is kicking back, relaxing and watching the waves roll into shore.

Why Life Can Be Whatever You Imagine, If You Let It

Guest Post by Michelle Lake, Poet and Published Author

Life аѕ уоu knоw іt today саn сhаngе tomorrow and be what you always imagined and wanted іt to be. I’m not talking about just dreaming аbоut it but living the life уоu want – dау in and day out, уеаr аftеr уеаr, until уоu leave this еаrth.

Your Thoughts Control Your Destiny

Your іmаgіnаtіоn аnd thought раttеrns control еvеrу аѕресt of уоur life, from what уоu wеаr on a daily bаѕіѕ to whеthеr уоu marry a particular реrѕоn.

Most реорlе do not rеаlіzе this and аllоw thеіr thoughts and іmаgіnаtіоn to run wild and wreak havoc on business, ѕосіаl, and fаmіlу lives. Thіѕ сhаоѕ tаkеѕ ѕhаре in many different facets, such аѕ еаtіng too much, drinking, smoking, high ѕtrеѕѕ lеvеlѕ, drug uѕе and the list goes on and on.

The good news іѕ that we аѕ individualѕ have the аbіlіtу to uѕе our minds to take full соntrоl and іmmеdіаtеlу change our сіrсumѕtаnсеѕ and ѕіtuаtіоnѕ by the wау we vіеw the situation at hand.

Is your life how you imagined it would be? Inspiration to live the life you imagined, from Michelle Lake, Poet and Published Author. #LifeCanBeWhateverYouImagine #Inspiration #Author #Poet #GuestPostHow to Take Back Control of Your Mind

It’s just like the cliché – уоu саn vіеw the glаѕѕ of water аѕ half еmрtу or half full. How a реrѕоn chooses to vіеw that glаѕѕ of water іѕ totally up to him or her because of the аbіlіtу to think, rationalize, and make the final decision of how we реrсеіvе or interpret the сіrсumѕtаnсеѕ at hand.

That final decision we make on how we interpret the сіrсumѕtаnсеѕ will also determine the оvеrаll оutсоmе of whatever ѕіtuаtіоn we are dealing with at that point in time.

So, I am sure you can see how thіѕ оnе ѕіmрlе соnсерt of ‘Iѕ thе glаѕѕ half еmрtу or half full’ can have a major impact on thе outcome of аnу situation you are dеаlіng with.

By changing our view of thе сіrсumѕtаnсеѕ from ‘I could never do that’, to ‘If I learned, I could do that’ will ultimately determine what соurѕе of action we will take.

We make dесіѕіоns еvеrуdау with negative оutlооkѕ or negative реrсерtіоnѕ not rеаlіzіng we are limiting оurѕеlvеѕ аѕ well аѕ our соnfіdеnсе in our own аbіlіtіеѕ.

As we do thіѕ оvеr long periods of time, we trаіn our minds subconsciously to have negative outlooks and perceptions without rеаlіzіng the mental rоаd blосk we have built up over the уеаrѕ.

You саn take соntrоl аѕ ѕооn аѕ уоu make up уоur mind to do so, now аѕk уоurѕеlf, ‘Iѕ the glаѕѕ half еmрtу or half full?’

Take Your Best Shot

Now, I am sure you must be wondering what is the actual ‘desired outcome’ of this article – taah daah!! Drum roll – I wrote an eBook!

Yes, I have been working on it for years and now I realize that the ‘strive for perfection’ can also be a ‘stumbling block’ to in-action, not to mention procrastination.

You see, we all strive to be ‘perfect’ – and there is nothing wrong with that. What is a ‘Debbie- downer’ for most of us is the fact that we ‘yearn too much for perfection’, put it on a pedestal and then become inhibited because it ‘might not be good enough’.

So today, I put my ‘striving’ aside and took action – I finished the eBook. It might not be perfect, but it is done and published.

NO longer did I ‘hold myself ransom to perfection’ while I could live my life in imperfection and a sense of accomplishment.

You can do it too.

Just relinquish the hold and simply Take Your Best Shot!  Who knows, it just might be perfect.The Poetry of Life by Michelle Lake

What is Health and Wellness About?

I’m taking my health back.  It’s high time. I know what health and wellness is about because I’ve spent more than half my adult life in the health and wellness industry. Yet I’m 46-years old and I’ve let myself go.

I’ve slipped into bad habits.  

  • Barely exercising
  • Overeating
  • Eating comfort foods and unhealthy snacks
  • Crazy Sleeping Habits
  • Drinking more coffee and wine than water
  • Little or no self-care
  • No downtime
  • Digital Addictions at an all-time high

Oh, I have my reasons, I have plenty

  • Who has the time to exercise when you’re running 3 websites, a household and running after a 5-year-old?
  • How can I say no to a second helping of my hubby’s food when it tastes so good?
  • How will I get everything done if I don’t wake up at midnight and work until 3 am?
  • Limit my coffee intake? Noooo… Everyone knows coffee is the fuel that drives Moms.
  • Drop my evening glass of wine?  Nooooo… that’s how I transition from Mommy to wife.
  • Huh? What’s self-care?
  • Where do I find 20 minutes in my day to meditate or journal?
  • How can a Mom Blogger NOT be on her phone and laptop all the time?  Digital Marketing is my life. And my livelihood.

But those are not reasons. They are excuses.  

They are an illusion, my mind playing tricks on me.  

There is another way.   And it’s time to find it because I can see what years of neglect is doing to me.

The Effects of Poor Habits over Time

Not paying attention to health and wellness has changed the way I look,  the way I feel and the way I feel about me.  And if I continue on this path, it could have much more serious effects.

That Frumpy Housewife Look

Bottom-line:  I’m indoors, on my bottom, blogging more often than I’m not.

And it’s showing on my bottom. And on my hips and waist-line. And even in my face.  Ugh.  My face looks fat in pictures.  I don’t recognise me.

I’m getting frumpy.  I’m looking more and more like a housewife every day.

My hair is frizzy. My skin is lacklustre. My fingernails are chipped. I have that unkempt look.

Health Niggles

And it’s showing up in niggly little health problems.

Getting coughs and colds more often than I should, followed by fever blisters. Ouch.

A funny, constricted feeling in my throat when I eat chocolate, bread or pastries.  Food allergies are mounting.

Lethargy.  My son asks me to jump on the trampoline with him and sometimes I just can’t. All I want to do is lie on the couch for a while.

Bloated tummy and constipation leading to piles every now and then. (Did I say that out loud?)

Pain in my fingers.

When I get up it sometimes, it feels like my back can’t straighten properly anymore, like I’m walking arched over.

And my back aches. And sometimes my hips.

I climb out the car and it feels like I’ve put my back out.  I can’t walk for a couple of minutes, the pain is so intense.

Headaches on the increase. And the occasional debilitating migraine.

Loss of Control

It’s also showing up in my mood, my frame of my mind. I’m not myself.

I’m increasingly irritable, short-tempered and I shout a lot.

I’m argumentative.

I jump from one task to the next.  I’m easily distracted.  I forget things.

Poor Health Creeps Up On You Slowly

Does this sound familiar?  Or is it just me?  These little health challenges start creeping up on you, don’t they?

We call it ageing.  We say it’s normal.  But it’s not.  It’s a bunch of poor lifestyle choices piled up that slowly start eroding our vibrancy.

I remember reading somewhere that what happens as we age is we become less and less active.  As our lives become more sedentary, we start packing on the kilos. Very slowly.  So slowly we barely notice.

If we pack on a mere 1kg a year, that adds up to 10kg’s a decade.

Which explains why when you’re in your 20’s you can be lovely and slim and still get away with it in your 30’s.

But in your 40’s and 50’s you’re now 30 or 40 kilos heavier than you were in your 20’s and feeling it.

And what if you’re putting on 2 or 3kg’s a year?

How's your health doing? Do you wake up in the mornings bright, chipper and pain-free? Are you feeling well? Or have you started to let your health slide, like I have? The Start of my Health Coaching Journey. #WhatisHealthandWellnessAbout #HealthCoach #Banting #Keto #LowCarb #RealMealRevolution So, Take Back Control Slowly

So in January this year, I started taking back control, gently.

Tackling issues that were bothering me, one at a time.

Choosing new, positive health habits I could incorporate into my life.

Re-introducing Exercise

I started saying Yes more often to my son when he asked if I would jump on the trampoline with him.

I invite him out for walks more often.

I park further away from his School so we can do a short hill-climb on the way in.  Little changes.

Adding Healthy Food Choices

I mentioned my food intolerances to my friend, Lucy and she told me she had started juicing celery and it had cleared up her allergies and she was feeling better in her clothes.

I figured that would be really easy to incorporate into my everyday life.  Juicing veggies is not new to me but I’d never juiced celery before as it’s not one of my favourite veggies.

So I make my veg juices with celery as a base and add pineapple, carrots, ginger and beetroot, depending what’s in the house.  A few times, I’ve added spinach or cucumbers into the mix too.

Drinking my veggie juice out of a wine glass dupes me into thinking I’m having a glass of wine. And most of my mixes taste better than wine (some combinations have been a bit yuck, I must confess).

Eliminating Foods that Harm

I’ve been weaning myself off bread and pastries for a good few months and I decided it was time to cut out gluten altogether.

Chocolates were the next thing to go.

Because I felt these were the things that were making me feel bad (the bloating and that horrible, constricted throat thing).

Then I noticed that most sweets made me feel yuck too, so I gave up most of them too.

It took me a few months longer to let go of my evening glass of wine. And I only did it because I found it unfathomable that I could eat no bread, biscuits or chocolates and STILL not shift the weight.  My new mantra: wine is for weekends.

Wellness and Weightloss

I was 2 weeks into this new plan:  no gluten, no chocolates, no sweets, no wine during the week when an amazing thing happened.

My friend and fellow blogger, Sharon Atkins aka Super Shazzer just completed her Wellness Coaching Course and offered me 12 Weeks of Free Coaching.  Woohoo!  What a win!

When the student is ready, the Master appears.

Free Wellness Coaching? Bring it on

And Sharon’s Coaching is super gentle and gradual, just the way I like it.  Yet the results have been astounding.

I’m only one week in and I’ve already lost 2.2kgs and 0.5cm’s around my waist.

The remarkable thing is that we only made one small change in Week 1.

Reduce Sugar Intake Slowly

Sharon recommended I reduce my sugar intake in my coffee, very gradually, by adding just a few granules less each cup.

I was drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee with 2 heaped spoons of sugar per cup. I decided it was too complicated to do it that slowly so I just dropped down to 1 spoon of sugar per cup from Day 1.

I’ve been having my coffee with cream instead of milk for a couple of years because I don’t like the taste of milk. I was interested to discover that cream is a better option than milk because it has fewer carbs. Who knew?

I also became aware of how often I was drinking coffee and opted for Rooibos Tea instead of coffee a few times.  I don’t drink milk, cream or sugar in my Rooibos so it’s a great substitute. 

Real Meal Revolution Diet

Sharon is a Certified Banting Coach through The Real Meal Revolution (RMR) so she introduced me to some of the basics of RMR last week and signed me up on their website.

The Real Meal Revolution is a low-carb diet, similar to the Keto Diet.

They recommend eating meat, healthy fats and veggies and reducing or eliminating starches and grains.

With this awareness, I tried wherever possible last week to skip adding carbs to my meals. I had my bolognese without the pasta, I had my steak and salad without the chips.  I even had a burger without the bun when we out for a meal at Roco Mamas on Friday night, I did steal a couple of my hubby’s chips though.

The thing is, I haven’t been that disciplined this week.  I really just raised my awareness and decreased my sugar intake and results have been encouraging.

How to Join the Real Meal Revolution

There are 3 ways to join the Real Meal Revolution.

  1. Join Online via the RMR Website
  2. Free through Coaching Sessions with an RMR Certified Health Coach (like I did)
  3. Buy one of the Real Meal Revolution Books.

Could You Be Doing More With Your Career?

How to Find a Meaningful Career

How to Find a Meaningful Career

Are you in search of meaningful work?  Would you like to feel a sense of fulfilment at the end of each day, knowing that you’ve made a difference?  I’ve found that being clear about this intention has led me to the most amazing careers in my life and given me incredible job satisfaction.  

  • As an Aerobics Instructor, I’ve seen ladies I taught get slim, fit, toned, energetic and confident
  • As an Aromatherapist and Reflexologist, I’ve seen clients relax, unwind and release tension and stress
  • When I sold Nutritional Supplements, I saw customers overcoming health challenges, becoming radiantly healthy, happy and well.
  • As Head of Network Marketing, I saw lives completely transformed through our products and our opportunity
  • As I’m building my blogs I’m able to touch lives with my posts and interviews with inspirational Moms
  • And now, as Business Development Consultant for The Kids Gym and Public Officer for the Non-Profit, Physical Literacy for Children, I’m able to see children’s lives impacted by our fabulous program.

There’s no doubt that when you’re involved in something that gives back to the community, something that helps or heals the world in some way, you feel more connected and more fulfilled.

Being in contribution reminds you that you matter, it’s your chance to leave a legacy, it’s your chance to make an impact on the world around you.  It gives your life meaning and purpose.

Have a look at the fulfilling careers detailed in the contributed post below.

Could You Be Doing More With Your Career?

Are you looking for meaning and purpose in your daily work? Would you like to make a difference and leave a legacy? Here are a few ways you can do that. #HowtoFindaMeaningfulCareer

Finding the right career can be a genuine challenge. After all, not only is the modern job market more competitive now than it has ever been before but there are also all of the difficult and complicated things that have always come with looking for a job.

One of the of the biggest issues that a lot of people come up against when it comes to finding a career that they really want is the fact that it can be incredibly difficult to find something that you really enjoy.

After all, not everyone is going to want to hire you for what you’re passionate about. This can be made even more difficult if you want more from a career than just a paycheck.

Trying to do something good with your time while earning a living is something that a lot of people would love to do but they might feel that there are no options out there. However, that’s simply not the case. Here are some career options for anyone who’s hoping to do some real good with their career.


Education is one of those career paths that sadly can go underappreciated a lot of the time.

However, the truth is that it’s one of the most important parts of any society. After all, being able to help young people learn and achieve their goals is one of the very best things that you can do with your time.

Not only that but you don’t even have to be a teacher to work in education. Doing something like an online masters in school counselling can give you the skills and qualifications that you need to help kids outside of the classroom. Whatever role you’d want to take on, there are few things more fulfilling than working as an educator.


Let’s face it, there are few things better than being able to spend your time literally saving people’s lives. Of course, a lot of people assume that to work in medicine then you’ve got to spend decades studying. And sure, if you want to become a doctor that is definitely true.

However, there are plenty of roles in medicine outside of being a doctor that is just as important. From nurses to care workers to hospital administrators. After all, doctors couldn’t do the things they do on their own.


It can sometimes feel as though there are so many issues all over the world that it’s impossible to know where to even start. It’s fortunate then that there are so many organisations all over the world that are dedicated to doing just that.

Not only are a lot of nonprofit organisations out there looking for volunteers but many of them need people to come on board full time. There are few better feelings than being able to say you earn your crust by making the world just a little bit better.

Of course, these are just a few examples.

The reality is that there are plenty of ways that you can earn a living while also being able to both find something that you really enjoy as well as giving something back to the world around you.

Hear, hear.  I know first hand the deep fulfilment that comes with being part of something greater than yourself.

What is the most meaningful career you’ve ever been involved in?   Or is it time for a career change?

2. Interior Designer

Are you a creative person who enjoys upcycling and DIY? You can become an interior designer, even without a degree.

You will need to make sure that you have a feasible business model and you are not spending more on travel than making on your writing.

Approach hotels and restaurants to find out whether they would be interested in a feature article or review. You will need an established online presence as an influencer, and a follower base to be able to make money this way, though.

5. Travel Agent

To travel the world, but still have the job security of an employer, you might want to become an independent travel agent or join a well established company.

This job may or may not involve a lot of travel, depending on the role you get and the company’s job requirements, so make sure you check the contract to avoid being stuck behind a desk.

6. Event Manager

Do you have an eye for details? You might become a corporate event manager at a local company, or a wedding organizer.

You will have to travel to different locations, talk to venue managers, contractors, and clients. However, when you are not working on a project, you will be able to enjoy some free time. And explore the world and the best places to stay and eat as a perk of your profession.

7. Client Manager

If you have always worked in the corporate world but had enough of administration and statistics, you can manage the professional relationships of the company instead.

You will need

  • exceptional communication skills
  • a good knowledge of business etiquette and
  • good negotiation skills.

Your services will be important for the company, as you will maintain the common ground and solve small disagreements without troubling the management with them.

If your current job is not giving you the freedom and satisfaction you deserve, it might be time to move on. Consider one of the above jobs that allow you to travel, interact with people, see more of the world and spend more time with your family.

No matter which career you choose, you can end up doing something you enjoy while earning top dollar.
