Filling in the wellbeing blanks with Nadia co-founder of Mum and Daughter Blog
We are all busy and are trying hard to fulfill big dreams and goals, manage our long to do lists and have a social life! The art of doing this without sacrificing our most important assets, our bodies and our health, is the challenge we are all faced with day to day. All of us, no matter who we are, have to keep working at it and can learn from each other – so each Wednesday we will chat to a passionate bright spark to hear about what they are up to and fill in their wellbeing blanks!
Today we are filling in the blanks with Nadia Felsch from Mum and Daughter blog . The inspiring blog is dedicated to helping us al live healthier and happier lives. Nadia, having worked alongside her mum building an incredible community of health-aware and beautiful individuals, Nadia has been inspired to create her first eBook full of clean-eating wholefood salad recipes for every level of cook and every kind of lifestyle! The eBook will be available from iTunes later this month. Nadia is also about to launching her own site – www.nadiafelsch.com – incorporating the Mum and Daughter Blog and dedicated to delivering even more value to their gorgeous readers week after week. Nadia says – my site and me; offer wellbeing with an edge, sharing my experiences (and vast mistakes!) along the way.
Let’s hear what Nadia has to say:
To Nadia to be well means: having no limits! Or maybe I should say seeing no limits! Choosing food to nourish and inspire my body and optimal health; now and in the future; moving my body in a way that works for me, constantly challenging this status quo, and smiling. Living with an open heart and feeling gratitude each and every day.
I have the best job in the world! Hearing and reading about how simple adjustments and tweaks that I discuss on the blog have made a difference in people’s wellbeing; and lives; is phenomenal. I feel very grateful to use my experience to help others with a path that can be so simple, and effectively, taken.
Moving my body, laughing, and eating foods each day that make me shine are usually easy for me when it comes to managing my wellbeing.
Recognising that I sometimes need a helping hand is usually hard for me when it comes to managing my wellbeing.
Internal pressures and deadlines always seem to throw my wellbeing off track.
Spending time in the kitchen and sweating it out brings my wellbeing back on track
Something I’ve found that really helps when it comes to my health, fitness and wellbeing is remembering how awesome I feel when I wake up each morning. Full of energy and brimming with ideas for the entire day; I value this so much and want to preserve it throughout my life.
Something I’ve learnt over the years when it comes to health, fitness and wellbeing is that what we eat says everything about how we value ourselves. “Eat as a rich man and you will live wealth.”
The advice I would give to someone half my age when it comes to looking after their body is you are worth it. Worth spending 10 minutes each day valuing yourself as opposed to spending the entire day in a self-loathing cycle. Worth trying new foods, worth pushing your physical boundaries and worth prioritising your individual needs each and everyday.
The problem with being too obsessive and trying to be a perfectionist when it comes to your health and wellbeing is it never lasts! Speaking from experience, even the most disciplined amongst us will rebel at some stage from obsessive behaviour and that swing can be more draining and damaging than you imagine.
If my body stopped working my ability to do my work would be challenged! However, where there is a will there is a way!
If my body could talk right now the loudest thing that it would say / ask for is kindness. Having dinner out with friends and not fretting too much about what to eat from the menu, missing a day of training and not feeling the guilt and ultimately loving all of me.
