Family Wellness begins at Home

Updated: Dec 5, 2019

These are the show notes from the latest podcast Blooming! A Healthy Home by Design Episode 06: Family Wellness Begins at Home.

Empowering Takeaways from today's episode so you can apply what we learned into your life!  The first thing we talked about is that overall well being isn’t just about diet and exercise - there are actually several areas that equate to our overall wellbeing, Monica and I didn’t go into detail but I thought I touch on a few of them here.

  • Diet

  • Physical Activity  

  • Home Environment 

  • Relationships 

  • Social Life

  • Career 

  • Finances 

And so for example, you could be in a toxic relationship or have a toxic career environment and eating kale just isn’t going to fix that for you.   So finding a health coach or a functional or holistic practitioner can be a good idea for you to get in touch with if you are feeling stuck or needing some extra support to get you and your family heading in the right direction.  

And you know even if you can’t get your entire family on board the wellness train…..a health coach can still help you.  Because by sorting out yourself, you can lead by example and make a huge impact on your kids.

So how can I start? 

  1. Become aware of the ingredients you eat to figure out what works and what doesn’t work for you individually.

  2. Use high quality oils and stay away from vegetable oils (canola oil too)

  3. Be mindful of labels. Stay away from products that have a ton of ingredients that you can’t pronounce.  

  4. Work on filling your plate with nutritious foods that are satiating so you won’t snack and grab convenience foods - or make fresh fruit or cut veggies available to grab when you are in a hurry.
