Health & happiness is created, not inherited
How can I put into words what this beautiful business is growing into. I have combined two of my favourite passions: Happiness (because what else matters?) and Health. I teach and share all the things that make our lives Contagiously Positive. Let me tell you a little bit about me and the company.
Contagiously Positive is a Personal Development Coaching Company that offers online training programs, health coaching, life coaching, corporate & personal lectures, workshops and speaking engagements. Laurie-ann Sheldrick, that’s me, is the founder and owner. I founded Contagiously Positive because I love to teach and it revs me up to share all the amazing life lessons that I have been learning on my life journey.
When it comes to working with organizations, or with individuals in one-on-one coaching, online courses, workshops or speaking engagements, everything is geared towards offering solutions to people who want to enhance their lives. I work with people who want to change and who want to learn stress-free, fun (key to everything!), and inspired ways on being happy, healthy, successful, inspired, motivated, productive and energized. I give people daily tools that they can easily incorporate into their lives.
I was dubbed Contagiously Positive from a man I worked with in my past life when I worked for 10 years in General Contracting. He said, “you are so f-ing Contagiously Positive!” I took that a huge compliment as I have not always been a happy and healthy women.
My personal and professional life are not separate. I live and breathe what I teach because I can be taken down so quickly into the negative vortex. I also believe that if I am going to teach health and wellness, I better practice what I preach. I am a life coach, health coach, author and motivational speaker, but my favourite part of what I get to do at Contagiously Positive is be a director of spreading health and happiness.
To win at life, I believe that continuous personal development is essential. Learning has been key for me, which is why I teach.
My personal beliefs
There is nourishment for the body (the foods we eat, and the way we move) and nourishment for our mind and soul (our relationships, career, spiritual practices, personal and professional growth, and all the things that expand and enhance our lives. I believe that what we think affects how we eat, feel, and act and what we eat affects how we feel, think, and act. There is no greater relationship than that of our mind, body and soul. They have perfect and never ending communication with each other. Food can make you feel full and satisfied, but cannot make you feel fulfilled. If your life is undernourished, you will most likely not make healthy foods choices. If you are stressed out, maxed out, burnt out at work or in life, you are also probably not making healthy food choices. I learned this the hard way, struggling my way through health issues after suffering from burnout while trying to climb the corporate ladder. All of this led me to my belief that you cannot have a healthy mind without a healthy body and you cannot have a healthy body without a healthy mind.
I am committed to serving at my highest purpose
Learning how to break through the toxic barriers of bad eating habits, health issues, negative thought patterns, limiting beliefs, and lack of self-love, made me committed to sharing my lessons and helping other people on their own journey towards living a happy and healthy life. If you choose to work with me, take one of the online courses, hire me to speak at your event, or want to follow all the free and amazing tools, tips and inspiration on my blog, I will share with you my own daily lifestyle practices that helped me step out of the darkness and leap fully and completely into the light. I will show you how to become the happiest and healthiest person you know.
Contagiously positive mind & soul
I believe that life should be enjoyed. We do not need to suffer. We do not need to be stressed out until we get burnt out. My purpose in this life is to help you overcome the limiting beliefs, barriers and/or obstacles that have been keeping you from being happy and achieving your goals and desires. My truest desire is to help you clear away the blocks that are keeping you from being your true, authentic, fabulous self.
Contagiously positive body
I believe that healthy should be the new normal. It is not normal, nor is it necessary to feel unhealthy, and tired all day, every day. There is a healthy, fun and delicious way to love your body. I will teach you the essential nutrients that all bodies need to survive and thrive, no matter what dietary lifestyle you choose.
Contagiously positive life
Here is what is so great about life and everything I’m going to share with you. In the words of Zig Ziglar, “You don’t have do it, you get to do it.” How lucky are we?
