And today I have a TRUE inspiration for you! Today we feature the Wellness Profile of Vicki Hurst!

Vikki, tell us briefly about yourself. What do you do? Feel free to share your website and stores as well.

I am a 59 year old wife, mother, grandmother and Emotional Dragon Slayer. I use Tapping, also known as EFT, which is a brilliant, yet simple form of psychological acupressure to help people, women in particular, release the Emotional Dragons that keep them stressed and stuck in their lives. (I’m a certified ProEFT practitioner). You can find the rest of my story on my website: www.EmotionalFreedomByVicki.com

What Have You Done to Achieve Wellness?(i.e. physical, emotional, mental, social, and/or spiritual well-being):

My whole adult life, I have been interested in alternative types of health care. I used vitamin and “real” food therapy to try to keep my family healthy. Chiropractic, Naturopathic and acupuncture were my favorite ways of treating my families health issues. I found EFT/Tapping a couple of years ago when I was on a personal growth journey, and have used it regularly for myself, my family and my friends and clients ever since.

What do you to Maintain Wellness?

I eat a healthy diet, which includes a green smoothie every morning, eliminating gluten, and other inflammation causing foods and I Tap regularly which has brought such peace and calm to my life in spite of stressful situations.

What is Your typical week of wellness activities?

Eat regularly, the foods that actually provide nutrition to my body, Tap with clients (which provides benefits to me also) and relax in my yard and garden whenever possible. I wish I could say I exercise regularly, but I would be lying if I did. I am learning to use time management in a much more productive and thoughtful way, so I am hoping to get that exercise, and reading back in my regular, daily schedule.

What is Your favorite indulgence?

Dark chocolate!!!

Who Is Your Wellness & Lifestyle mentor?

Lindsay Kenny

Why do you do what you do?

I love helping other women make the shift from stressed, depressed, anxious and/or fearful and seeing how they are able to spread their wings and fly.

What does your lifestyle say about you?

I hope it says I’ve been able to learn a lot through the years, always growing and always learning. Life has it’s twists and turns and I have just hung in there figuring out what is best for me at the time.

What would you tell someone who wants to follow your lifestyle routine?

Exercise regularly!! Care deeply about yourself and others!!

Thank You Vikki!

Vikki, Thank you so much for shaing your Wellness Profile with us! I fully agree with you regarding the value of relaxing in my yard and garden whenever possible. I started a garden for hat very purpose, and just 10 minutes each day after work relaxing in my garden and watering the plants, works wonders to help me unwind and de-stress after a hectic day.

Your tips for health eating, and exploring other natural remedies for wellness such as Chiropractic, Naturopathic, EFT/Tapping and acupuncture are truly inspiring to us all!

Now…it’s YOUR turn.

Are you paying attention to what you eat to ensure a healthy immune system that can fight off stress and disease? Vikki mentioned a green smoothie every morning, eliminating gluten, and other inflammation causing foods. That’s definitely “food for thought”. It’s up to you to follow Vikki’s example of healthy eating, effective time management, and balanced living to ensure optimal health and genuine wellness!

If Vikki’s wellness profile has been an inspiration to you, please share your thoughts and feedback in the comment section below.

Wellness Profile For Aysha Iqbal-Mompreneur Extraordinaire!

Aysha Wellness Profile Image

Tell us briefly about yourself. What do you do? Feel free to share your website and stores as well. My name is Aysha and I work freelance from home. I operate 2 websites and have a photo gifts store and do some freelance online marketing as well. I am also mom to a 6 year old kid. W

hat Have You Done to Achieve Wellness?(i.e. physical, emotional, mental, social, and/or spiritual well-being): It of course is a work in progress but I have been taking steps to achieve and ensure my wellness. Firstly, I have made it a point to exercise more often for better physical and mental health. Then I keep a check on my stress level and act on it right away if I find myself getting easily worked up or frustrated. All in all, I have started doing what is necessary to keep ME well. And I have been more consistent of making lists – for the day, week and for each project I am working on. This helps me decide what is more urgent and important for me.

What do you to Maintain Wellness? Essentially I prioritize at each stage – no matter how big or small. Then I maintain a to do list that I can check out of to ensure I did everything I set out to do that day – no matter how tiny a task. Always having an idea of the big picture and prioritizing keeps me more organized and help me decide better. That way, I ensure that all is well and I feel accomplished instead of stressed.

What is Your typical week of wellness activities? Going for a walk, exercising, playing and watching some TV with my kid and family. Making my list each day so the following day starts off clear and productive.

What is Your favorite indulgence? Hmm…. Watching TV …although too much can’t do much for my wellness I know … and Ice cream of course

Who Is Your Wellness & Lifestyle mentor? All mothers in general – if you have more than 1 kid, you are a super mom in my books.

Why do you do what you do? To ensure I am there for what matters the most – my child. If I am not healthy and well, who can he rely on? Besides as a mother, I need to set a good example for him! How can I ask him to stay calm, prioritize and live well if I do not comply by those standards? We need to take care of ourselves so we can be there for everyone we love.

What does your lifestyle say about you? I am not sure what others think, but to me, I am at least trying to do everything that is needed to stay on top of everything, without spreading myself too thin.

What would you tell someone who wants to follow your lifestyle routine? I am not perfect but I am trying. The first thing you need to do is prioritize, divide and conquer. And follow the system that works for you. Remember what matters the most – your welfare and your family, career and anything else. So always set that up front and don’t get swayed by distractions. I wish you the best and a life with no stress and all the wellness possible. Do good and only good will come your way.

Thanks so much for sharing your Wellness Profile with us Aysha. You are an inspiration to us all!
