Focus On Yourself

Home » General » Focus On Yourself

No matter how bad things get in the world around us there is always good work to be done on ourselves.  Sometimes people can become immersed in trying to fix or save the world and avoid dealing with our own pain or flaws.  Correcting every injustice is an impossible task.  It’s usually best left to the God of the universe Who knows exactly what is going on and cares about all the injustices that are taking place a lot more than we do.  I am not saying to turn a blind eye to oppression and injustice so please do not misunderstand me.  I am also not implying that there is no need for personal boundaries.  If someone keeps poking you in the eye and ignores your requests to stop, it may be best to take a step away from their reach.  I am talking about focusing so much on others in order to avoid what needs to change in ourselves.  Sometimes people can get lost in all the things that need to change in the world around us that we forget to listen to the voice of God with regards to what needs to change in our own hearts and character.  This is a form of denial.

In Ecclesiastes Chapters 3 and 4, King Solomon said, “Moreover, I notice that throughout the earth justice is giving way to crime, and even the courts are corrupt.  I said to myself, “In due season God will judge everything man does, both good and bad.”… Again I saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun. And behold, the tears of the oppressed, and they had no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors there was power, and there was no one to comfort them.”  Whether or not a person is interested in the Bible, I think everyone would agree that Solomon was a man of great wisdom.  He saw the problems in his civilization but even as a king he knew he was powerless to change all the issues of  mankind.

Accepting the world as it is, and focusing on what needs to change in ourselves can be very freeing emotionally.  When we are able to say with confidence that we are working on the growth that needs to occur in our own lives, it is so much easier to become less entangled with the issues our neighbors may  have.

Overall wellness involves mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and is the result of deliberate effort. We see wellness an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as well as recovering from injury, disorders and diseases.

Wellness is all about proactively taking care of yourself. It’s what you eat, who you surround yourself with, your mindset and attitude, plus how you behave in your life and work.

Because our minds, bodies and spirits are connected, we believe in treating the person as a whole.  We know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities.  We take a holistic approach to our encounters with each individual.   Our human potential and resilience is amazing and we use different approaches depending on your preferences.  To begin your journey  Click Here.
