Your Health Life Balance Point
Taking Care of Your Health (Your Sophos)
Making time for you to think and grow.
To be adequately prepared for your journey, begin from where you are by asking yourself three important questions and write down your answers:
Why am I the way I am?
Why do I do what I do?
Why do I believe what I believe?
If you find yourself experiencing one or more of the following, then you are in the right place at the right time…
You want to achieve goals but find that you miss the target and fall back into old ways
You seek after the key disciplines needed for success but somehow they elude you
You experience great fears about your health…the confusion over the right diet (you hate the taste) and the right exercise (you’re allergic to sweat)
You are filled with emotions and feelings and may turn to food or other unhealthy habits
You are stressed out, often angry, and overwhelmed
You know you should exercise 4 or more times per week but other things get in the way
You are not sure which solution is best for you to maintain your weight and overall health
You don't get enough sleep
To build a strong future, what are your priorities for 'you'?
Sophos has had the meaning "skilled" or "wise" since the time of the poet Homer and originally was used to describe anyone with expertise in a specific domain of knowledge or craft. For example, a charioteer, a sculptor or a warrior could be described as sophoi in their occupation. Gradually, however, the word also came to denote general wisdom and especially wisdom about human affairs, i.e. being wise to take care of your health.
Pressures Threaten Life Balance
The world we live in has changed significantly during the past several decades.
As a result of this ongoing change, we face pressures to change. Because of technology, our values are being challenged; other people are imposing their expectations on us, as well as, career demands on our time and attention. All these pressures lead to increased stress. This stress threatens our life balance and challenges our leadership capabilities all the way from the kitchen to the boardroom.
