Are wellness trends making you poor, not well?

Hot pilates, dry brushing, cold plunges, oils, tonics, saunas, steam, floats...

The opportunities to spend money on your wellbeing are endless. If you've been online for any amount of time you will be told in more ways than one, "you need this to feel better". It can feel exciting to know the thing you're missing in your wellness routine is on it's way and afterwards your friends probably won't recognise this healthy, glowing woman.

Getting personal for a moment, I tried dry brushing recently, in a sauna... the way your supposed to (just like Gwyneth ;). I was ready for the glowing cellulite free legs I was promised! After a few rounds I not only didn't see any difference, but my skin hurt so much doing it every time that I no longer enjoyed my saunas (another thing I was anticipating life altering results from). And to be honest I didn't really want to be doing it in the first place, I just didn't want to miss out on whatever these other wellness gals were on to.

I don't think I need to tell you it's mostly marketing. If you've been an adult with disposable income for long enough and you've probably already found out. But what I do want to say is hope is powerful. Hoping for more energy, better sleep, clearer skin, healthier weight. Hope will bring us to spend money on our wellbeing for quick fixes. But a healthy and well life is one of the few things you can't buy. Hoping for something better in your wellbeing needs to be partnered with consistent wise choices to really transform.

Broken down, health is simple.

Health is not expensive.

Feeling 'well' at it's core is the sum of all your little decisions.

Wellbeing transformation is something you can have. It's also something you can have for free!

Taking a real look at your lifestyle and getting honest with yourself is definitely a more difficult choice than buying into the next trend. Getting practical, it's the basic practices of looking after your nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress management, mental health strategies (among others) that will create a spring of health in your life! It's going for a walk to get some fresh air and clear your mind. It's choosing a quiet night in over a busy schedule. It's choosing to commit to counselling and getting into the painful things you've been avoiding. It's committing to the gym membership you've been paying for and not using. Getting the foundation right first will empower you to choose what things are going to supplement the health you've already cultivated. The trends can be a cherry on top of the healthy life you've cultivated for yourself.

A healthy life does not need to be an expensive one and the most rewarding investment into your wellbeing will always be simple, consistent habits.

If you don't know where to start, a wellness coach can support you to holistically explore your big picture health. Our approach is simplicity and walking with you to the consistency where you will find real health transformation!
