I’ve been thinking about what it takes to be a Healthy Woman, Happy Woman (HWHW). Well, I SHOULD be thinking about it, given that that’s the name I’ve given to my brand. 😉
We women have so many demands placed on us that we sometimes lose sight of ourselves and our most intrinsic needs. I think we need to get back to basics. Don’t you? What are those “basics”? Reclaiming our own well-being, health, and––can we even dare to imagine it?––happiness.
So, what does that HWHW look like?
Is she full of energy with her cravings under control, eating nutritious food, exercising regularly, and getting adequate rest? She could be.
Or, maybe she’s not. She might be headed in that direction but dealing with the peaks and valleys of navigating life:
- a few more pounds on her body than she’d like… pounds that seem to have set up permanent residence there;
- a job that works her last nerve and drives her to eat stuff she knows she shouldn’t be touching;
- a family tugging at her for more of her time and attention, leaving her with precious little of both in order to prioritize her health;
- perimenopause sneaking up on her and wreaking havoc on her emotions.
Regardless of what stage you’re at and how much you may feel that you’re the farthest thing ever from a Healthy Woman, Happy Woman, I’m here to encourage you that it is within reach. I’m a health coach who genuinely cares about women reaching their health and happiness goals, and I’m here to help you do just that in your own unique way.
I’ve created a manifesto in which I share my thoughts on how a HWHW can carve out a healthy and happy space for herself. Check it out below:
What’s your definition of a HWHW? What in the manifesto do you resonate with the most? Or least? What makes you in particular a Healthy Woman, Happy Woman?
