Our mission was founded on a very simple idea: we want to see people come fully alive.
And at Small Changes Big Shifts® we love to do this by helping people make small changes that ultimately lead to the biggest shifts in their lives.
While striving for optimal health can feel daunting, we see when broken down into smaller pieces that fit together in a simple framework and nurtured along the way, people feel supported and empowered on this journey.
Through our programs centered around creating whole health through balanced daily practices – in organizations, schools, medical offices, spiritual communities, and neighborhood gatherings – we put the odds in their favor to be well and stay well.
The Quadrants of Wellbeing: It Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated
Being healthy and feeling well takes more than being diligent in one area of wellness. It is not enough to just eat well or just exercise. Rather, it requires attentiveness to the whole self – your spirit, mind, and body.
If you think about it this way, you can’t drive a car on three wheels – you need all four for it to work. And your body is no different.
Let us introduce you to the Quadrants of Well-Being – a simple framework that restores how amazing our bodies were designed to feel every day, all day.
We believe that balance and variety in these four areas are essential to stepping into your best life. When each area is given attention, we build resilience to face life no matter what is happening around us.
Creating Generational Change with the BigShifts Foundation
With BigShifts Foundation®, our partner non-profit organization, we provide young people (5-30 years old) with safe places and resources to enable their wellbeing with the aim of creating generational change in how people view and use whole person care.
Children need to understand from a very early age that by practicing the Quadrants of Wellbeing they empower themselves to live optimally.
With this mental model of harmony instead of equal 50/50, people of all ages quickly begin to understand that it’s not all about exercising OR eating clean OR maintaining a spiritual practice OR being attune to the energy around us. It’s about the AND.
We help young people build a new awareness that what this culture influences them to do is not always good for them. We share age-appropriate tools to help them act mindfully in caring for their physical body and what they put in and on their body. They also learn from skilled practitioners how to care for their mental and spiritual selves by connecting with their authentic selves and the universal energy that connects us all.
