Hi! I’m Sheila…or you can just call me She as some of my friends do!
I am a Minnesotan, born and raised and live in the ‘burbs of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. My life loves include my 4 Guys; 1 Big, 1 Medium, 1 Little, and 1 Furry (a very handsome cat!), my family, and my friends.
She Be Well is short for Sheila Berg Wellness. While She Be Well is short for my name and company, the name dually stems from a Shakespeare quote by Romeo as he was inquiring about Juliet;
“For nothing can be ill, if she be well.”
I love the idea that if our loved ones know that if we are well, life will be well with us! Even if we are in a place that isn’t our best.
You know the place…that place where change is needed or even necessary. A change in eating habits, a change in fitness level, a change in weight, a change in attitude, a change in family life, or maybe even a change in career. But you’re stuck in the “how.”
That is where I was…or may be right now, again! Life comes at us quickly and our needs and wants change with it. Developing the habits needed to keep moving towards our goals and dreams when life happens is the key…and I want to help!
MAYBE YOU WERE LIKE ME
I was always “fit” when younger. But life takes over and the focus on raising Boys, partnering with Husband, taking care of a home, and building a career somehow became more important than me taking care of me. I let that happen and I own that. I was the one who choose to focus on my circumstances rather than my health.
While I had started to reclaim my wellness (even losing 22 lbs in a doTERRA weight-loss challenge) life, once again, stepped in. My Dad’s health took a turn for the worse and he passed away in June 2018. My life collapsed into my grief and while trying to be there for my Mom, my siblings, and my Guys, I wasn’t there for me. At. All. My grief was comforted by food and my tears disappeared into my wine glass. Even though we had been walking with my Dad in his numerous health issues for 35+ years, I was allowing my own health to slide down that same slope.
As a former Health and Physical Education Teacher and Adjunct Professor, Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Health Club Manager…along with my undergrad degree in Physical Education, I knew better. But I was stuck in a cycle of grief and trying to be “normal” for my Guys, but was not really living life fully or purposefully. And that was OK!! It is OK!! It is OK to go through what we need to go through. It is OK to grieve. It is OK to cry. It is OK to use what we need to keep living, one day at a time. It is OK and YOU are OK!
Even before the sorrowful events of Spring/Summer 2018, I realized I had lost the me that had such confidence in my knowledge, gifts and abilities, appearance, and personal style in my 20’s, 30’s. I had lost my sparkle!
But there comes a time to make the decision to be better. One of my favorite quotes is from Maya Angelou:
“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
During my time of sincere, deep grief, I did the best I could. And I am OK with that. I forgave myself for needing time. For needing to cry. For needing to just do my best, at that time. I knew when the cloud lightened, I would do better. I forgave myself for focusing on my career and for focusing less on my family because it was honestly what I thought I needed at that time. And that is OK, too!
The cloud that came over my life after my Dad passed lightened around my Birthday in October. (Weird time, eh? But it did.) This time of celebration for another year of my life starting, while still grieving the end of my Dad’s life here on Earth collided and it hit me…hard. I had to get better. I wanted to get better. I knew better and now I had to do better. I WANTED MY SPARKLE BACK!
And that is why I’m here today. It is why I became a certified Health Coach. It is why I developed Essential Oil protocols that I follow to enhance my health and well-being. It is why I now take time for me. To become healthier. To focus on a career I love. To show up for me. To show up for my Guys.
My journey had now led me to you and other women like us. I am here to empower other women to live a healthful, engaged life. To help you show up for yourself. To be your true self. To live with purpose. To love yourself as you are now and as you work to reclaim the woman you were meant to be. To pursue your passion in your professional life or in your next business adventure.
I am here for you as you work to reclaim your own sparkle!
