Poul: “This is what quality of life is about”
A bit about you
My name is Poul and I’m currently in a very good place. I say currently, but I know now that I’m doing this for life. I’m not following a regid plan but a healthier mindset that facilitates what I want to do in life.
I’m 67 and have been taking care of my wife for many years. She had bipolar disorder and I was worried all the time and afraid of what she would do. For most of my life, I’ve had a very unhealthy mindset and it has dominated my happiness and life. I can honestly say that I have also been depressed.
A new year, a fresh start
I made my mind up that in January of this year I had to change. I was so very unhappy and sad about my life but I had to try to change things because of my family and grandchildren. I was so sad, I didn’t even want to go to the hairdressers as I didn’t want to look at myself in the mirror.
Fed up and miserable, my children told me about Replan. I liked that it was evidence-based, aimed at reducing the risk of personal crisis, and sounded doable. I went for it! I’ve already been in the park and meeting new friends. I also consider getting myself a dog. I’ve learned that this process is long-term and that making the odd mistake, or falling off-plan is a learning opportunity.
What benefits have you seen?
Apart from a healthy mindset, I feel so much better following Replan. I have buckets of energy and my sleep has improved. Others have commented on how well I look and that my eyes are glowing. I do love my life. My emphasis has shifted to being healthy physically and mentally.
The changes to my life by joining Replan have been significant. I really enjoy the different challenges and planning healthy living.
As you can tell, I’m absolutely sold on Replan. It has been the best investment in myself I have ever made. My children and grandchildren also love it; it’s improved our relationships and they helped me build up my Hopebook.
Transferrable into everyday life
Importantly I feel confident now, I am in a sustainable period and can easily maintain it in my life. .
About 3 weeks ago I was on holiday in the French Alps. This was the first time I have been traveling in a long time and it was liberating. To me, this is what quality of life is about and I can’t thank Replan enough.
