I AM THE WELL THAT WANTS TO BE SUPER WELL: MY JOURNEY OF RESILIENCE AND EMPOWERMENT

Today, I want to share with you the mantra that has become the guiding principle of my life: "I am the well that wants to be SUPER well." This mantra isn't just a catchy phrase; it's a deeply rooted philosophy that has shaped my journey towards optimal health and wellbeing. So, let's dive into the many reasons behind this mantra and the personal experiences that have fueled its significance in my life.

 

Growing up, my family faced numerous health challenges that profoundly impacted my perspective on wellness. At the young age of 35, my father was diagnosed with colon cancer. Witnessing his courageous battle against this disease taught me the importance of prioritizing health and taking proactive steps to prevent illness. My mother, a true warrior, fought and conquered cancer not once, but twice. Her resilience and determination inspired me to approach life with strength and optimism, no matter the obstacles.

In addition to my parents' health struggles, I've seen my husband, Chris, endure his fair share of physical setbacks. As a former NHL player, Chris has faced numerous injuries, undergone 16 surgeries, and experienced multiple concussions throughout his career. His resilience in the face of adversity has been both awe-inspiring and humbling. Through his journey, I've learned the importance of resilience, perseverance, and the power of a positive mindset in overcoming life's challenges.

 

But perhaps the most significant reason behind my mantra is my deep-seated desire to protect and empower my children—Jack, George, and Lilah. As a mother, nothing is more important to me than ensuring their health and happiness. I want to equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. By prioritizing my own wellness journey, I'm setting an example for them to follow—a legacy of health and optimization that I hope will inspire future generations.

You see, my mantra isn't just about personal health—it's about empowerment. It's about recognizing that we have the power to take control of our own wellbeing and make choices that support our physical, mental, and emotional health. It's about embracing the idea that being "well" isn't just about avoiding illness—it's about thriving in every aspect of our lives.

 

So, how do we become "SUPER well"? It starts with knowledge. Knowledge is power, and when it comes to our health, ignorance is not bliss. That's why I'm committed to continuous learning and education in the field of wellness. Whether it's staying up-to-date on the latest research, biohacking trial and error on myself, exploring new holistic practices, or sharing insights with my community, I believe that knowledge is the foundation of empowerment.

 

But knowledge alone isn't enough. We must also take action. That means prioritizing self-care, nourishing our bodies with nutritious foods, staying active, managing stress, and cultivating meaningful connections with others. It means listening to our bodies, honoring our intuition, and making choices that align with our values and priorities.

 


And finally, being "SUPER well" means embracing humility. None of us are perfect, and we're all bound to face setbacks and challenges along the way. But by approaching our wellness journey with humility and compassion—both for ourselves and others—we can create a supportive and empowering environment where growth and transformation can flourish.

 

So, my dear friends, I invite you to join me on this journey towards becoming "SUPER well." Let's prioritize our health, empower ourselves with knowledge, and support each other every step of the way. Together, we can cultivate lives of optimal health, purpose, and joy—a legacy of wellness that extends far beyond ourselves and into the lives of those we love.

 

Remember, you are the well that wants to be SUPER well. Embrace your power, take action, and let your light shine brightly for all to see.

 

With warmth and wellness,

Lauren
