Lifestyle as Medicine – Miriam Hussey at WellFest 2019

This week on Happy Magazine we are sharing all the best bits we enjoyed at WellFest last weekend.

Today we have a talk for you by Miriam Kerins Hussey – wife of Gerry, whose powerful video we shared with you on Tuesday. Miriam’s talk is all about integrated wellness and exploring lifestyle as medicine to help us stay healthy.

Miriam worked for many years as a pharmacist, dispensing medicine for every ill and ailment. She became more and more interested in wellness and ways to feel better before reaching for prescriptions and this led her to her new role as a health and wellness expert.

Miriam also believes the power of our mind has an important part to play in the vitality of our cells and that we can strengthen our emotional system through working on our mind, body and soul. 

She explores four key areas of ‘lifestyle as medicine’:

  1. Food and hydration
  2. Movement and exercise
  3. Sleep
  4. Stress

Miriam also challenges you to think about:

  1. What is nourishing you in your life?
  2. What is not helping you in your life?
  3. What do you do to nourish your mind, body and soul?
  4. What small changes could you make?

We thought Miriam’s talk was extremely worthwhile and included some great insights and tips for enhancing wellness in your life. We hope you enjoy it too!
