About MaKE my health
Meet your coach and see if this is the program for you!
MaKE my health brings together 3 key elements of real health:
Mindful awareness, or Mindfulness, is the backbone of the MaKE my health program.
As we become more mindfully aware, we can focus clearly and objectively on what’s actually happening in the moment, without any judgement.
Why is this crucial for our health?
When we’re fighting and avoiding our negative thoughts and feelings, we remain trapped in unhealthy and unhelpful habits and reactions. Mindful awareness allows us to create a healthy, balanced distance from our negative thoughts and feelings, so we can work wisely, positively and constructively towards the changes we wish to make in our life – both in body and in mind.
Self-Kindness is the practice of treating yourself with care, the same way you would a very good friend, and doing the things that are healthy for you.
It curbs self-criticism and blaming, which stops you from pursuing positive, health-related activities. Judging yourself or blaming others doesn’t help you improve – but self-Kindness is a very effective motivator for positive change, as it offers support and encouragement. Think of it as the ‘glue’ that enables MaKE my health participants to keep on keeping on with effective, healthy lifestyle choices.
We all know exercise is essential for our physical health – but it is also crucial for balancing and improving psychological health.
Exercise is one of the pillars of the program, with participants gaining muscular strength, tone, flexibility and endurance, as well as better balance and increased oxygen flow to the entire body. Not just making you fitter and stronger, regular exercise is key to helping you feel good – boosting your mood and improving your outlook.
