Life & Business Update

The horrific events in the Middle East have caused so many emotions in me ranging from - anger, sadness, confusion, hatred, compassion, depression, and overwhelm - all the while feeling so incredibly guilty for my blessings. Why are there so many people suffering the most incomprehensible atrocities while others get to sit back and go on with their everyday life unscathed?

I don't think there's been one day since Oct 7th that I haven't cried. Some of the images I have seen, or words I have read, pop into my head at all different times of day and night and will remain in my brain forever. I always talk about the importance of gratitude, and although it seems virtually impossible to find in in times like these, the one thing I will say is that it has forced to me to reflect on my own life, my values, my business and where I truly want to spend my time and energy.

So, I'm going to be honest with you. In my heart, posting about food, mocktails, making videos and spending time promoting my business doesn't feel right at the moment. I want to make an impact now. I want to spend my energy where it really matters and not wait for people to come to me. I want to go to them. I want to be in school with my kids, serving the teachers and children in my community and make an impact where it matters now. I want to help kids see their potential. I want to give hugs to the ones that feel the most unlovable. I want to give teachers a break so they can take a breath. I want my brain to be fully present with my kids when they're at home. I don't want to wonder if I've posted enough content on social media or stress about a tech issue on my website while my kids are detailing me on their latest Lego creation. I will always be a proponent of holistic health coaching - or coaching/support of any kind that you need. But right now I see my purpose as focusing on kids and their future. Meeting them where they're at and building them up, teaching them about holistic health and giving them inner tools, life skills and mindset shifts they can use forever both inside and outside of school.

In times of trouble and sadness we often feel powerless. What is in my control, though, is redirecting my purpose to what I believe makes the most immediate impact on the world around me. It's a way for me to take a stand and hopefully impart positive change, even if it's on a smaller scale. I always say to my clients that small changes made consistently equal big results over time. So, I have to believe that will be the case here too. More importantly, however, when I leave this earth I don't want to have regrets on where I spent my most valuable resource - my time.

Even though I've decided to stop accepting new clients, and press pause on other areas of my business for now, these "weekly wellness" emails will continue because I think it's important to provide mindset tips and positivity because we can all use more of that. I just need the time and space to figure out the direction of Ali Naglee Wellness. I also want you to know this decision was not easy. I've worked extremely hard to build my business and had big plans for it's future, but this nudge is too strong to ignore. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to me with any questions.

Thank you for allowing me to be open and transparent with you, as well as your continuous support these past few years. I'm forever grateful.

Talk soon,
