3 Foundations for a Healthy Life After 50

Over the past 3 years, I’ve changed.  That transition from my 40’s to 50’s has been uncomfortable, challenging but most of all…..a RELIEF.

My pursuit of wellness has transitioned from mainly EXTERNALLY driven goals like:

  1. making an impression with my physical image

  2. seeking instant accolades for performance

  3. attempting to position my status with my accomplishments

to goals that are INTERNALLY driven:

  1. moving my body well and without pain

  2. seeking peace and simplicity

  3. experiences that align with my passions

  4. enjoying sincere relationships

Overall…..creating long last changes which align with my deepest values.

My clients, my teachers! As I’ve worked with my clients, they too seem to be going through the same transitions…not just age-based transitions but also transitioning their values from being career driven to quality-of-life driven. We all have supported each other as it’s an odd feeling to let go of old motivators and focus on new ones.

Keeping things simple has helped.  Right now, I’m focusing on 3 basic foundations for a healthy life…and not to be too cliche…it really is about the BODY, the MIND, and the SPIRIT!

The 3 Foundations of a Healthy Lifestyle


For a Healthy BODY – Learn to breathe correctly.

Learn to breathe correctly

Proper breathing helps posture, balance and reduces stress. Once you are breathing well...your body can do anything! Learn the basics of good breathing in our special course here:


For a Healthy MIND: Learn to detach from thoughts and feelings.

When we have a calm mind, we are able to make choices that support our core values! Take the LLM Mindfulness 101 course to learn how to begin to detach.


For a Healthy SPIRIT – Learn to be of service to others.

Be of Service to Others

While it is VERY important to spend time taking care of your mental and physical health so you CAN be useful to others, I’ve personally found when I step outside of my ego and be of service to others, I have a greater sense of peace and well-being.

When I have connected to others and let go of my ego, I gain perspective. I get out of my crazy head and contribute to a larger purpose. I’ve done this by offering help without expectation, but also by simply creating a positive and supportive mindset towards others.   You may find it difficult at first to do this, maybe even feel in-authentic, but the more you practice the more it becomes simply who. you. are.
