‘My Maxim: Holistic Living’

Your view on beauty?

I’ve known, for long, people who struggle with feeling beautiful and confident in their own skin — not just the skin of their thought. It would be a cliché to say that society’s beauty standards are often overwhelming, and many people feel they fall short. True beauty is not just about appearance; it is about embracing your own unique self and feeling confident in who you are — not what you wish you were. My experience has led me to believe that true beauty is a reflection of our inner selves and our connection with the world. We can choose to embrace all aspects of ourselves, leading to a more positive, authentic, and beautiful expression of who we truly are, or throw in the towel, as it were. It is only when we truly embrace our unique features and feel confident in our own skin, do we come of age, or mirror a much better image of ourselves — as we are, and not what others would want in us.

Your ‘take’ on fitness?

Fitness plays a vital role in achieving optimal health and wellness. I have seen first-hand the incredible impact that fitness can have on our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Fitness is often thought of in terms of physical exercise, but it encompasses much more than just moving our bodies. It includes taking care of our nutrition, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and tending to our emotional and spiritual needs. I also understand the importance of energy and how it affects our bodies. Our thoughts and emotions emit a certain energy that can either contribute to, or detract from, our overall fitness. By learning how to manage our energy, we can improve our physical health and well-being. Fitness ought to be a holistic practice — one that encompasses all aspects of our being. By taking a holistic approach to fitness, we can achieve optimal health and wellness and live our best lives.

Your view of health and wellness?

I have had the privilege of working with people on their journey towards health and wellness. In my experience, health and wellness are not just physical aspects, but they are also deeply connected to our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. People often have limiting beliefs and behaviours that may be affecting their health and wellness. For example, someone may have a deeply ingrained belief that they cannot lose weight — this can prevent them from making the necessary lifestyle changes to improving their health. Hypnotherapy helps to re-programme such beliefs, while empowering the individual to taking positive action towards their health and wellness goals. Certain health issues may, at times, have their ‘root’ in past lives. Sometimes, certain patterns of illness and negativity, likewise, are passed down through family lines — right from the time when we are in our mother’s womb. Such imprints may usher in a negative connotation, such as difficulty in conceiving, or traumatic birth experiences, which when removed, often create a more positive and healthy relationship with our bodies. Put simply, health and wellness are deeply connected to our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. By working on all levels — physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual — we can create a more integrated and healthy self and experience greater joy and fulfilment in all areas of our lives.

Your ‘take’ on work-life balance?

In today’s fast-paced world, work-life balance is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve. I often see people struggle with stress and burnout due to their work-life imbalance. People need to recognise and integrate the shadow aspects of themselves that may be contributing to their workaholic tendencies. By bringing awareness and creating a harmonious balance between work and personal life, one can experience a greater sense of satisfaction — better still, fulfilment.

Your mantra to beat stress?

My favourite mantra to beat stress is, “This too shall pass.” When we experience stress, or anxiety, at some point, or the other, it’s easy to feel like it will last forever. This timeless, also simple, mantra reminds us that everything in life is temporary and that this present state of disquiet too shall pass. When we acknowledge that our stress is transient, it helps us to release some of the tension and anxiety associated with it. In addition, the mantra reminds us to stay in the present and focus on the existing moment, rather than worrying about the future.
