Welcome to Be Healthy and Zen!
I’m Sheree…your zen friend.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist, Stress-Relief Coach, and Mental Wellness Freelance Writer.
My health and wellness journey began when I went to massage school in my early 20’s. I had no idea the knowledge I would gain and experiences I would have along the way. I felt like I had entered another world I never even knew existed. Not only did I learn about massage therapy and anatomy and physiology, I learned about things like natural health, stress-relief, self-care, meditation, yoga, breathwork, energy, spirituality, manifestation, law of attraction and the universe…just to name a few.
It quickly became apparent to me that massage therapy was not just a job, it was a way of life.
As my new knowledge became my norm, I found that many people didn’t have these basic understandings or how they could apply them to help improve their lives. They didn’t understand how their bodies worked and how to optimize their wellness. They didn’t know what foods to eat to nurture their bodies They didn’t have the experience of changing their reality by changing the way they think and what they filled their mind with.
Over the years, I’ve always shared my knowledge with clients, friends, family and anyone else who would listen.
My life is not always harmonious nor healthy. Currently, in these midlife years, I find life to be fairly stressful. I thought this was when I got to be a little more selfish and focus on myself. Dividing my time between working, my daughter, my mom, and my partner, I haven’t had that experience yet.
I definitely have my share of family drama. I sometimes get pissed off and aggravated at stupid things. I forget to be grateful. I spend too much time on social media. I easily loose my focus. I eat foods I know are not good for me. I love wine and craft beer. I haven’t had a consistent workout routine in way longer than I’d like to admit. The only time I listen to new age music is when I’m doing massage.
Despite what might be some not so healthy habits, I seek balance in my day to day life. I’m concious of how I’m feeling physically and emotionally…if I’m getting overwhelmed, if I am overeacting to things, if and when I need to take time for myself. I meditate often to bring me clarity, peace and insight. I love yoga although I don’t do it enough. I don’t watch the news. I let go of things I can’t control or have any influence over. I love to dwell in possibilities. I enoy eating healthy foods. I choose natural solutions for health and wellness. I’m continuously evolving and learning how to improve myself.
It’s our choices that create our reality and we all have the ability to live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life through the choices we make. I want to share with you many of the experiences and knowledge I have that perhaps are new and inspiring to you. I feel we all have something to share that other people can benefit from so I look forward to learning from you as well!
My desire is that you have peace and balance in your day to day life, that you have awareness to appreciate the experiences and people around you, that you offer kindness and receive kindness in return, that you express gratitude throughout your days, that you feel fantastic and that you live your best life.
