Sweet7 empowers you achieve your health goals by working the core natural and scientific fundamentals of wellbeing and physical health. There are seven components and each is designed to work in delicate balance with the others.
How you manage them in your life plays a big part in the stress you place on your body. Get the balance right and your physical condition and how good and free-of-pain you feel will be, well, sweet.
There are no shortcuts, and it’s up to every individual to do the work. But if you’re willing, we’ll refine a unique Sweet7 program for you that will guide you safely and effectively to a balance that’s right for you and your life.
We work with all walks of life. Many are working professionals with/without children. Some are weekend athletes, some are injured, some are not. However, everyone is aware that their body is not what it used to be. They feel the niggly aches and pains and are regularly tired. And they’re sick of it.
Our clients need guidance and help to check the toll that everyday living takes on their wellbeing. They often feel like they’ve lost who they were and want to find themselves again by breaking the habits that constantly stand in their way.
about the 7 fundamentals
Water intake is important for hydration, cleansing and facilitating many of our bodily chemical reactions. Ideally, you should be drinking approx. 33mL per kg of bodyweight, therefore, you should aim to drink 0.033 x your bodyweight of water everyday.
You are what you eat – literally. The millions of cells you ‘turn over’ every day are replaced by the nutrients you eat. Everybody’s internal nutritional needs are unique. Balance is critical for energy levels and the biochemistry that influences emotional and mental states.
Regular movement provides mobility for joints and muscles, as well as motility to the internal organs that deal with digestion, circulation and detoxification. An appropriate level of exercise needs to be properly calibrated according to how stressed your system already is. Too much too soon could make things worse.
It’s involuntary. Yet how you breathe and the conditions you breathe in are conscious decisions. You breathe 20,000 times a day and less than optimal breathing patterns can have a profound effect on digestion, organ health, posture and sympathetic nervous systems. Breathing properly, in a fresh environment and using your lungs fully, helps diffuse life’s stresses and brings significant benefit to your overall health.
You think, therefore you are. The positive and negative thoughts that you choose to have impact every aspect of your life, health and wellbeing, your interactions with others, your emotional state, your life path, and your ability to succeed in your goals. As Shakespeare wrote, “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”
Every living thing sleeps. It’s key to how well we fill the hours that we’re awake. Many of us choose to ‘get by’ with just 6 hours a night when our bodies are designed to need a good 8 hours. When we sleep, our bodies repair, tissues recover and minds download information. So it’s a busy time, just to function properly.
None of us is an island. We need people, not just for company, but for support and encouragement. The exercise bike at home that never gets used is a classic example of how, left to our own devices, we struggle to establish good habits. Yet when we regularly get together with a group of like-minded souls or a coach, it all happens.
