Counselling for a healthy lifestyle

Improve your physical and mental health…

By taking responsibility for managing your lifestyle

By Dr Jim Byrne

Dr Jim in Thirsk001At the age of 30 years, I discovered a book which suggested that if there is a problem in my life, then I am responsible.  I considered this to be an incongruous idea.

How could I be responsible for my own life?

Surely life is just something that happens to us, like snow or rain falling from the skies?

In the process, I discovered that I did not live my life as if I cared about my physical health; and so I began to make changes in that area of my life – with the support of a loving woman, who introduced me to vitamin pills; and healthy eating habits!

I then rediscovered the joys of physical exercise, and began to take my sleep needs more seriously.

Now, more than forty years later, I am in the best of health; with no tendency towards colds or flu; no physical pain; no digestive or elimination problems.  No depression or anxiety that cannot be taken in my stride!

But I have to keep monitoring my life for symptoms, and tracking then back to potential causes, and working on those causes.  However, that is a small price to pay for my wonderful, fit, healthy and happy life.

If you are interested, I can teach you the strategies I have used in my own lifestyle self-management, so you too can guarantee that you will live a happy, healthy and successful life, well into advanced senior citizenship!
