Nourish your body, mind and spirit
Being truly healthy starts with understanding that
you are your most valuable investment!
Hi, I'm Melissa!
I'm the Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach behind Serendipitous Health. I know... it's a long title. Simply put, I teach people how to incorporate health into their lives. I have an undeniable drive to do so and want to teach you the truth on how to live healthy for the rest of your life.
Life long health can't be found in diets or gyms. It's not in the latest fitness app or on your scale. It's in the choices you make every day.
True sustainable health is about creating healthy habits in all aspects of your life. Nearly everything you do affects your health. From the foods you eat to the way you think, walk, talk and feel. Even the cleaners and kitchen accessories you choose to use can have a profound affect on your health.
It all may seem overwhelming but the truth is, it's a lot more simple than the Health Industry would have you believe.
What the heck is "Serendipitous" Health?
Serendipitous Health [ser-uh n-dip-i-tuh s][helth]
accidently come upon soundness of body or mind
fortuitous freedom from disease or ailment
One healthy change can result in multiple, unexpected and positive results.
The simple fact of the matter is, whatever you choose to do can have a rippling effect in your life, whether your choices are good, bad, healthy or unhealthy.
Body - What you eat affects the way you think and how you feel.
Mind - How you think impacts what you eat and how you feel.
Spirit - How you feel influences the way you think and what you eat.
Your body, mind and spirit are intertwined, and choosing to create at least one healthy habit in one area will yield positive results in the other two.
This is "Serendipitous" Health!
So, where do you start?
Start by acknowledging and accepting where you are in this very moment!
I'm not suggesting you have to love where you are but you do have to acknowledge and accept where you are. Whether you've made your health a priority or not is irrelevant because in this very moment you've made it a priority. I know this because you're here reading these very words.
Acknowledge the fact that you have made good, bad and possibly even ugly choices in the past, let them go and move on. Accept that your past choices are just that... past choices. You can't go back and change them so why dwell on them.
In this moment I want you to take a deep breath in and a deep breath out. While breathing in through your nose for a count of 4, picture light, white, healing air entering your body and say "I am". While breathing out of your mouth for a count of six, drop your shoulders and picture dark, heavy smoke exiting your body and say whatever ugliness you're holding onto. For example "no longer going to label myself as lazy."
Start releasing the guilt, shame and/or fear you have been carrying. Release the labels you or others have given you that are not only false but don't serve you.
Breathe in the positive and breathe out the negative.
