Inspired by the thousands of patients I’ve worked with over the last four decades, How to Be Well: The Six Keys to a Happy and Healthy Life, is my my user-friendly guide to health and wellness made simple. It’s the distillation of all the wellness wisdom my Health Coach team and I have shared with our patients about how to create lasting energy, wellness and vitality.
The book is, however, anything but a look back. It’s about creating wellness now in a world where the odds can feel as though they’re increasingly stacked against living a healthy life. In fact, I’m seeing a rising tide of ever younger patients with debilitating digestive issues, metabolic imbalances, chronic fatigue and auto-immune problems, as well as waves of people in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s who feel as though they’re aging way too quickly, dealing with memory and energy issues far too early in the game.
But the good news is that everyone can turn ill-health around – and that’s where How to Be Well: The Six Keys to a Happy and Healthy Life comes in. The mission? To cut through the health and wellness clutter and make the process of getting well, less arduous, less confusing, less chaotic and dare we say it, simple, no matter what age or stage of life you’re in. In How to Be Well, I’ve put together the ultimate wellness manual, organized in a simple and engaging way, packed with easy-to-embrace health tips and suggestions to take up at your own pace.
This self-guided approach puts the power and responsibility in your hands. You become the author of your own unique health story. There’s no drill sergeant barking out orders, just the tools you need to create your own tailor-made wellness plan and internalize your own healthy habits.
What’s unique about this beautifully illustrated book is that you can to start at any point, picking and choosing the healthy habits you’re ready to adopt, adding more good habits over time. How to Be Well isn’t your typical linear ‘self health’ book – it’s circular – so you can enter at any point, depending where you are, where you need to go and at what speed you want to get there, be it days, months or years.
How to Be Well is a treasure trove of my best advice, strategies and takeaways on how to eat, sleep, move, protect, unwind and connect with yourself in the healthiest possible ways. I hope you will think of it as your total wellness handbook, that will guide you as you build and maintain your healthiest and most resilient self.
