I’m sure you will agree with me that our mental and physical health affects our daily lives.
And when we get diagnosed with a health condition, it can at times be very distressing and difficult. Simple things that many of us take for granted become harder, for instance, walking up the stairs or being able to have a good night’s sleep.
Today I want to share how in the past, my member Hema felt stuck in so many ways because of her health. And, it was only when she decided to take charge and make some changes did her life change for the better.
Hema joined my Wellness Membership Program in March because she was struggling from a lot of knee pain, which had affected her quality of life.
Given the extreme pain, she was unable to do many things include walk, which resulted in her piling on the kilos. And this then contributed to her raised blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Plus, the pain affected her emotionally as well and she was often in tears.
She had contacted her doctor about the pain and was prescribed strong pain killers but was unable to see the doctor in person because of Covid restrictions. At this point, she felt low, frustrated and unsupported.
In the past, Hema used to think that her doctor needed to help her manage her pain, but now looking back, she realises she had to be the one who needed to help herself, with self-love and self-care.
Hema decided to start her wellness journey with me to learn how to take care of herself better, from eating healthier to improving her daily routines and is so happy that she did this.
As you can see in the interview, Hema transformed her life in many significant ways by prioritising her own self-care. Hema has done this step-by-step by making small changes over six months and she built it all up gradually.
Before the program, she was unable to walk for more than 10-15 minutes. But now, she easily walks for an hour without pain. This is a HUGE WIN for somebody who felt her mobility was limited.
She feels calmer and more relaxed now as enjoys spending time in nature.
She’s refreshed and has more energy now than at the start of this year.
She’s doing many things that she had not done before. She believes in herself and doesn’t limit what she can do.
What Hema learnt in the Wellness Membership Program:
- To have balanced meals
- Plan and prepare meals
- Eat mindfully
- Stop counting calories
- How to read food labels
- Improved nutrition knowledge
- Increase her activity gradually and at a pace that she could
- Self-love and self-care
- Prioritising herself

Some significant ways how her life improved after joining the Wellness Membership program:
- She’s pain free
- Her blood pressure has reduced
- Cholesterol levels have improved
- Lost 14 kilos in 6 months

By making time for her self-care, Hema is now at a much better place in both her physical and mental health.
Can you imagine feeling more confident and not having to hide behind others in photographs?
This is now where Hema is, as has so much more confidence and shows up as herself, and has bought new beautiful clothes.
