Episode Fifteen: Recreating your health mindset
During this episode, I chat to Dr. Lisa Gadd about her health journey and how having a stroke at twenty four changed her life.
Lisa shares her personal experience of being really active as a kid and how it all shifted when she was twenty four. She was studying, playing netball and going out but it all changed when she woke up one day with a cracking headache. She talks about being diagnosed with meningitis, getting sent home then she had a stroke. Lisa shares about her recovery journey in hospital for months and how she still kept a positive mindset that she was going to get through it.
We hear about how she realised what health entailed and that it’s not just physical. Lisa discovered that health isn’t just how much your moving or what you are eating but mentally, the relationship with yourself and those around you. Lisa talks about how she recreated her health mindset and how it created her passion for helping others as a mindset, health and wellness coach.
Throughout this episode we discuss the power behind connecting with our truest self. How it important it is to connect inwards and work out what we need, then we can go out and serve others. We talk about game changing exercises like spending five to ten minutes a day to stop, breath and connect inwards.
Lisa offers advice on how we connect with ourselves, having a look at all the areas in our life, physical health, friends and family, career and spiritually. Then asking ourselves what is working and what is not? What are one or two little things we can do to help.
Listen to this in conversation episode now to begin your journey to connecting with your truest self.
