DEEP HEALTH MASTER CLASS

20240512_095102.jpg
COMING SOON!

At Moxie, we look for what we call “deep health”. Deep health involves thriving in all domains of human experience. It’s a “whole-person, whole-life” phenomenon that incorporates:

 

Physical health

  • How our body feels, functions, and performs

 

Mental and cognitive health

  • How well we think, learn, and remember.

  • Our perspective and outlook on the world

  • Our capacity for insight and conscious awareness

  • Our creativity and flexible problem-solving

 

Emotional health

  • Our general mood

  • Feeling a full range of emotions; but also having more positive than negative emotions

  • Recognizing and appropriately expressing emotions

  • Regulating our emotions; being able to respond to emotional challenges in a resilient and productive way

 

Existential / purposeful health

  • Having a deeper “why”

  • Having a strong sense of ourselves and intrinsic self-worth

  • Feeling part of a “bigger picture”, and / or a larger purpose than ourselves alone

 

Relational and social health

  • Connecting and interacting well with others

  • Developing and maintaining authentic, fulfilling relationships

  • Feeling respected, “seen”, valued, and supported by others.

  • Having a sense of “belongingness”

 

Environmental health

  • Being and feeling safe and secure

  • Being and feeling supported by our surroundings

  • Having access to resources (i.e. health care, healthy food) and being able to act in the world

 

When we have some degree of deep health, we are able to grow, adapt, evolve, and potentially even excel as human beings. At the very least, we have a “life-forward direction: that gives us a sense of vitality and purpose in the world.

 

I don’t want clients to have big muscles but small lives, or clients who “look good” but feel awful inside. I want to help people feel and function well in all aspects of their lives.
 

HIGH-IMPACT FUNDAMENTALS
At Moxie we we focus on what we like to call “High-Impact Fundamentals”. These are everyday skills that, if learned and practiced consistently, will make a significant difference to nearly all clients’ results.
 

No matter what your Outcome Goals are (what you want to accomplish), think about it in terms of:

  • What skills you need to learn, maintain, or improve to move towards that goal,

  • What practices will build that skill, and

  • What kind of small, repeated actions / behaviors (habits) support the practice.

 

In the Moxie Deep Health Master Class, practices are organized logically into skills. Skills are organized under pillars.

THE REINFORCING CONNECTION BETWEEN POSITIVE HABITS & PRACTICES

Many of the habits and practices presented throughout our programs have a direct positive effect on our ability to carry out the other habits and practices. The connection and mutual influence from the "physical body" practices (Nutrition, Movement, and Sleep) is perhaps more evident than others.

 

For example, there is a clear connection between the food you eat (Nutrition) and your desire to exercise (Movement). Healthy nourishing foods provide you with more energy and also improve your mood, which in turn increases your desire to exercise (Movement). Consequently, when you exercise you will have more physical and mental energy which often equates to more willpower to resist temptations (Nutrition). Exercise and daily activity also reduce stress (Stress) which makes you less likely to comfort eat – and in this way the positive cycle continues.

 

Regular exercise also greatly enhances the quality of your sleep (Sleep) which, in turn, positively affects your energy levels, motivation, mood, and your level of willpower.

 

The improved energy levels and mood we obtain from implementing these physical body practices also helps us to overcome the resistance that might arise around building new habits in the other areas of our lives.

 

Each of us needs to find something that works for us, but that thing needs to be sustainable for a lifetime. The Moxie Deep Health Course focuses on building sustainable fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle habits that can be your foundation for taking control of your health and fitness year-round.
