Why do I tell you who I am? I have learned to create and embrace serenity each day through who I am, lessons I have learned, people I have met, decisions I have made. I wish to help you create your own serenity2day.
What is serenity? Serenity is defined as a state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. It can be attained through your mindset, habits, behaviors, and decisions. Serenity is influenced by what you eat, how you sleep, when you move, how you talk to yourself, what you think, feel, and do, who/what you exposed yourself to.
I look forward to helping you attain serenity today – every day. We can start where you are and look at the goals you have. Not sure what you need but know you want and need to change something; we can work together to develop a plan that works for you to help you thrive each day. Steps towards change may involve nutrition/food, movement, body image, self-talk, sleep strategies, grief management or other areas. Schedule a free 15-minute intro session to see how we can work towards your serenity2day.
I also provide group education and presentations in the topics listed above. Please reach out to me if you need an educator or presenter.
