Are You Taking Care Of Yourself?
It can be so easy to put yourself last in today’s busy world. There always seems to be something more important to do than take care of your own health.
That was my mother’s outlook – and it cost us her life at the young age of 57.
It’s why I’m so passionate about helping others take back control of their health through changing their diet, nutrition and mindset. That “me-last mindset” meant my mom never got to meet her grandchildren.
It’s not too late to make a change for the better in your own life. Take the quiz below to find out if you’re taking good care of yourself. And let me know if you can use some support. I'm here for you.
With our busy lives, taking care of ourselves is more important than ever—yet it’s often the last thing on our minds. We have to meet that deadline, use break time to run errands, accomplish all the items on our list. We all know the negative impact on our health that stress can have—so, let’s find some balance. Take this self-quiz to see how well you are taking care of yourself.
