A big part of my wellness coaching is about how everything in our lives can affect our health. My focus is holistic health – which means “whole body” wellness. When looking at these other “foods” that you are feeding yourself, it becomes a lot more clear why things might be out of whack! These “foods” are called primary foods. If you’ve worked with me, you are familiar with this concept already. If not, here is an exercise I like to do with my clients.

One way to achieve this is to recognize the things we have to be grateful for in each of our Primary Foods categories.
