Reach your peak

By Jennie Delreeve, Peak of Wellbeing

Are you somebody who wakes up determined to be in a good mood, but somehow by midday, you are back to feeling grumpy and irritated again?

Do you find that you are often worried and anxious by seemingly small things?

When you look around, does everyone else seem to be happier and doing better than you?

If the answer is yes to one or more of these questions, read on, this article is for you.

What is happiness?

Should we feel happy all of the time? How do we achieve happiness? We have all asked these three questions at some point in our lives and maybe many of us are still searching for the answer.

Figuring out which ratios of Protein, Fat and Carbohydrate our body needs, can be quite a challenge.  There are no hard and fast rules. It would be great if there were a really simple cookie cutter approach, a quick fix solution, but unfortunately it doesn’t exist.

Our unique nutritional needs are based on many things:

  1. Gender
  2. Genes/DNA
  3. Lifestyle
  4. Stress Levels
  5. Level of daily activity
  6. The weather
  7. Where we live
  8. Pregnancy
  9. Menopause
  10. Age
  11. Health levels

One of the biggest desires people have is to improve the look and function of their core muscles.

Many have tried diets, personal trainers, pilates, detox programmes and the list goes on………

So why haven’t they been getting the results they so desperately want?
 
Because nice looking abdominal muscles and a functional core are dependent on many factors:

Many people suffer from an underlying sense of worry, fear and anxiety. They wonder where it all comes from when they have seemingly comfortable lives. Frequently, it stems from a deep seated fear that we are not good enough. That we are not worthy of all the good things we have in our life. Sometimes this comes from childhood hurts or unresolved past issues.

This manifests itself into physical issues such as fatigue, back and neck pain, hormone imbalances, worrying about the small stuff, high blood pressure, moodiness and irritability. If this sounds like a radical concept, think back to a time when you were in a very stressful or unhappy situation.

Did you notice any physical symptoms at the time? Maybe your hand shook a little? Maybe you felt continually exhausted? Perhaps you had low back pain? Most physical issues have an emotional component at root.

pow stomachfat

Many of our clients wonder why they can lose weight, but cannot get rid of the stomach fat or have well defined abs.
 
There are 4 key reasons why you cannot lose your stomach fat or feel bloated in the abs region:

1. The abdominal wall becomes stretched during pregnancy.
This needs to be reversed post pregnancy and in-between children. It is never too late to start to re-train these muscles even if your child is 20! The traditional sit up exercises are not always the best method to re-train these stretched muscles. They can actually lead to an even ‘pouchier’ abdomen.

2. Inflammation in the digestive system or any of the organs.

Visceral-Somatic Reflex describes the relationship between the organs (viscera) and the muscles (soma). Let’s say, for example, that you have a food intolerance. This food will cause an inflammatory response, which will cause all the muscles in the area to shut down, namely your abdominal and back muscles. This means that you are essentially walking around with a naked spine. In other words, muscles are not supporting the spine and your abdominal muscles are turned off. So, no matter how many sit ups you do, these muscles will not be activated!
