IT’S GREAT TO SEE YOU HERE!
My name is Manuela and I’m the gal behind Lifevolution. I’m a qualified physiotherapist, have a degree in neuroscience and psychology and a certification in nutrition.
Yes, it is extremely ambitious, but I want to change the way people live their lives, one person at a time. I want you to live your life happier and with purpose.
For several years, I have struggled with my health and have been desperately seeking for my true purpose in life. I have had many sleepless nights and of course the incessant daydreaming about running away to the Caribbean where I would spend my days eating bbqs on the beach, dancing till the sun goes down and drinking rum. I know… maybe not the most sensible idea i have ever had. There a days where I have felt bored, unfulfilled and lacking direction. Don’t get me wrong I am grateful for everything I have. I have a great husband, family, home and a job that enables me to make a positive change to people’s lives but, something was missing.
On my quest to improve my life and specifically my health, I did what a lot of people do and took several prescriptions from my doctor hoping that a “magic pill” would get me ticking perfectly… just as I had successfully done in the past. Guess what… it didn’t work this time.
Disclaimer – This post is in no way suggesting that you should stop taking medication prescribed by your doctor. Please keep taking medications as recommended by your doctor until they advise otherwise.
I started looking into alternative ways that I could get my health back on track. I did a lot of research on how to achieve optimal health and this is when I came across the idea of being holistic with self-care. Look after your physical body as well as your mind because one affects the other. In my case I was taking medication to help my physical symptoms but they were not getting better because I was not looking after my mind as well. I was stressed and my physical body was beginning to suffer. I felt tired all the time despite a good sleep routine and because of that, I ate a lot of rubbish to get that buzz I was so desperately seeking. I started to have a lot of abdominal problems which affected my mood and made me feel worse physically. The cycle went on and on.
I thought enough is enough. Something must change. I started to implement my plan to holistically take care of the whole of ME. I won’t go into too much detail about the changes I have made in this post because there are several posts to come with detailed tips for you.
