The Best Advice For Your Health (from my Dad)

This past Sunday marked the 3rd Father’s Day, that my Dad hasn’t been here to celebrate. If you’ve lost a parent, I know you get the whole anniversary thing. Also, I’m sending you a virtual hug right now. 

It had me thinking a lot about my Dad’s greatest piece of advice. I use it in all areas of my life. I even teach it in my self defense and empowerment seminars.

It’s this:


My Dad was a retired NYPD detective but he never retired his art of asking questions. 

Upon meeting you, he would find out your name (first and last and how to spell it), where you’re from, where your parents are from, what you do for a living and some other random facts all within a few short minutes. For some people, this was overwhelming, but for most, they loved it, they felt heard.

When it comes to safety, I now use this principle when I teach about awareness and boundaries. Asking more questions can help you find out a person’s intentions and see if there are any cracks in their story (red flag). 

When it comes to your health and fitness, asking more questions is equally important.

Ask yourself more questions like:

– Why am I feeling tired every morning when I wake up?

– How do I feel after eating this type of food?

– What was I doing when I looked and felt my best in life?

Ask your healthcare provider more questions like:

– What’s the underlying cause of this autoimmune disease?

– How long do you suggest I take this medication for and what are the side effects?

– Are there alternative ways of healing that I can research?

As a health and empowerment coach, I help clients ask better quality questions, so we can find better solutions.

Health and fitness is not a one-size-fits-all approach and my job is to help you find what is going to work best for you and your lifestyle.
