Hiya Sweet Friend:
I have an important question for you:
Those 3 things seem to be the poster children of good health.
But does that image in your mind look fulfilling or sustainable?
Yea… I don’t think so either.
Much better, right?
Goodbye rigid healthy lifestyle guidelines. Hello fulfilling healthy living that makes sense for YOU. Because you and I are different baby, and our needs are just as unique and beautiful as we are.
In a nutshell, health-esteem is all about loving yourself, caring for yourself and thriving in a lifestyle that is tailored to your needs. Made for you by you. Because you deserve to be well and live in a way that works for you.
Which means that this is not about following a strict diet or a never-ending list of lifestyle musts. And it’s never about feeling limited and unfulfilled.
I’m here to provide beautiful you with ideas, tips and inspiration. But I don’t expect you to do it all (that would be freaking exhausting!) Try what sounds great, take what works and leave the rest behind. An awesome choose you own adventure.
Every week I’ll share self-care tips, self-love inspiration, delicious recipes and more. Together we’ll learn how to incorporate self-care activities into our busy lives and commit to loving ourselves fiercely. We’ll talk about how caring for ourselves affects our health. And we’ll have an absolute blast ;).
See – a total choose you own adventure!
That’s me! Enjoying the view and a delicious green juice. My name’s Sara Flanagan (aka Ms. Health-Esteem) and I’m PASSIONATE about empowering others to make themselves a priority and their needs a priority. Bonus points if it all comes from a place of self-love.
In 2012, my world shifted.
You see, I had been dealing with an ever growing list of symptoms. Anxiety, irritability, racing heart, constant hunger, weight loss, insomnia, painful muscle spasms, hot flashes…
I could go on, but the point is, I felt like I was falling apart.
But in April of 2012, months of testing revealed that I had an autoimmune disease called Graves Disease.
Hearing the words “treatable but incurable” changed everything.
I’ll be honest… it wasn’t easy and I didn’t find my way to a better place for quite a while. There were lots of emotions to unpack. Totally normal.
I will always have Graves Disease. I can’t change that. But taking ownership over my well-being and participating in my healing in a way that prioritized my personal needs, and not someone else’s idea of what it means to have a healthy lifestyle, have allowed me to thrive.
This commitment to myself helped me thrive. It was a huge part of finding my way to remission. It allowed me to work through relapses with a far better outlook. And, my favourite part, it’s made me feel healthier and happier than I ever have before.
Through e-books, weekly articles on self-care, acceptance, wellness and nutrition, and a pretty rad community of fellow Health-Esteemies too, I’ve helped tons of fantastic peeps like you.
Why don’t we kick things off with a FREE Self-Care Plan Workbook. Because you deserve to tap into the activities that help you relax, unwind and feel awesome. Trust me, it’s good for you! Get your free copy right here.
Oh, and you’ll also get weekly bonus content too. Because extra stuff is fun!
