The Background

Some background to set the stage for the blogs that follow.

My journey started as a young adult who decided on the vehicle of medicine to make a difference to people’s lives, very much with the aim to be directly involved with those people.
In the last 10 years as a Doctor, I have specialized in health and wellness, as a certified Coach and Lifestyle Medicine Physician.
As a social-marketing professional and love to share the large range of health and wellness products I benefit from and use daily and can add benefit for others available through me.

“I love what I do. I love to help others but more importantly to make a difference for them – it’s what drives me it is my purpose in life“

I am aware how blessed I am and also that I am now ready and really want to help as many people I can using the various online platforms alongside my offline life.
I am lucky enough to be in a position to grow this dream. I can and I passionately believe that because I have that opportunity. I must overcome all the doubts and setbacks that can occur to achieve all that I can.

This blog gives me a voice and platform to share and grow this and allows you to get a good close up of how I tick and to benefit from the time you’ve given to my blogs to read them.

The Concept

I thought I’d begin with a bit of my foundational concept and it’s a creative one! Love a bit of creativity. Allows me to hang my hat on things and develop the concepts.

In the next 12 months I am going to focus on various topics
These undoubtably will develop and be added too.
A podcast is also a possibility for those who like to listen! One step at a time for now!


Meaning; “to make something as good or effective as possible .. in the period between birth and death, or the experience or state of being alive’

At the centre of a lot of what I do is all about us making the best of what and where we are NOW.

Not tomorrow or next year – now.

Slap bang in the reality of our lives.

This may involve significant challenges such as serious illness or a loss of a close person, going through menopause, being made redundant or having to move away from family.

Despite all this we can achieve better health and wellbeing.

I love to help and empower people into this space we can all achieve.

From December there will be a monthly post on the first of each month with themes inspired from the letters of OPTIMISE LIFE.

This will steer my posts with inspiring titles.

O Optimizing, optimum vs perfect
P Purpose and people
T Timing and timelines
I Inspiring others and ourselves
M Mindfulness and meditation
I Identity and I am’s
S Sex and sleep
E Exercise and energy
L Love vs Fear
I Intuition and our insides
F Food and Family
E Enjoyment and engagement

I’d love to hear your feedback on my various posts.

I am here for you to Optimise Life
