If you want to ensure that you get the most from life, then it is often necessary to ensure that you are dealing with any health issues holding you back.

There could be many issues you are unaware of, which could be impacting you on a daily basis.

Here are some of the problems that you might struggle with and the steps that you should take.


The first of these four health issues holding you back could be addiction. Yes, you could actually be struggling with an addiction – without even knowing it.

When people read the word “addiction”, they often think about the common culprits – drugs, alcohol, smoking etc. However, it is worth noting that you can get addicted to anything!

It is not always going to be things like alcohol or drugs that are causing you issues in your life. You may find that you are addicted to technology or struggling with an addiction to caffeine.

The first step is to identify the issue.

Once you can identify what the problem is, you can begin to look for alternatives. Remember, an addiction is always going to be a coping mechanism, and there are many other (healthier) things you can do to replace this coping mechanism.


Are you having issues with anxiety? Troubles with anxiety can impact your life in a variety of ways.

You could find that it stops you from exploring the opportunities that you are interested in and causes you to avoid making big leaps or changes in your life.

If you think this is an issue, then you might want to consider exploring medication that can help with your anxiety levels. This could be herbal medicine. Or, alternatively, you could explore cognitive therapy, or work with a Life Coach (such as myself), or the best life coach, both of which may help you overcome your anxiety.

Many people find that cognitive therapy helps them relax more and avoid situations that leaves them feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Meditation and mindfulness are also very popular methods used to help people cope with stress or anxiety.


You should also consider eliminating pain and ensuring that you are dealing with pain the right way.

Lots of people suffer from chronic pain that impacts their life – take me, for example. The right action will depend on the type of pain that you are experiencing.

For instance, if you are struggling with aches in your feet, then you should think about booking an appointment to see a podiatrist. Pain like this can have a simple cause and a solution that is relatively easy to manage.

You might be struggling with back pain. This could be due to something as simple as your posture and how you hold yourself, or even your mattress. Getting a memory foam mattress, or just one with the right firmness to suit your needs can make all the difference.

Sleep Trouble 

Finally, you might be struggling with issues relating to sleep. Problems with sleep can have numerous impacts on your life. For instance, you might find it more difficult to concentrate throughout the day.

You could also find that a lack of sleep increases your levels of stress because it’s trickier to handle problems and issues the right way.

That’s why it’s important to make sure that you are finding ways to get a better night of sleep each day. One of the ways that you can do this is by improving your sleep environment.

You should avoid having too much technology in your bedroom, and as explained above, make sure your bed and mattress are the right type for you.

I hope this helps you understand some of the key steps that you can take to get your health back on track and fight the health issues holding you back right now from living your best life. Best of luck 🙂 x
