Holistic Health and Well-Being

So here's the thing

I'm getting older - I'm in my mid-30s.

I'm a father.

My overall health is becoming more of a concern.

I don't recover from training as well as I used to.

It's getting harder to keep the weight off.

I can't eat as much as I used to.

I sometimes get indigestion, which never used to happen because I have a great digestive system, alhamdulillah.

I've started looking at my health and well-being holistically.

How my physical well-being ties into my mental and spiritual well-being, and vice versa.
