Your Life Matters with Petrea King, Founding Director and CEO of the Quest for Life Foundation
An unexpected diagnosis can stop us in our tracks and cause us to consider how best to embrace the health challenge we face. Sometimes we might look great, but our inner reality doesn’t match our outer appearance. It can be a lonesome and isolating experience when everyone comments on our outer appearance without any enquiry about our inner state.
The greatest gift you can give yourself, your family or your community is the gift of your own good physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. There are many practical skills and strategies for living well in difficult circumstances and for building your emotional resilience and sense of wellbeing.
- Coming to our senses
- Mindfulness as a foundation of happiness
- You’re not your body, you have a body!
