Kalvin Phillips, a gifted young footballer and prominent midfielder at Manchester City, offers an inspiring story of resilience and maturity. Despite a challenging upbringing marked by an absent father, Phillips benefited from a grandmother who played a crucial role in his personal and professional development.

Phillips acknowledges and appreciates his mother and grandmother’s sacrifices during his upbringing. In a poignant moment captured in a recent documentary, he visits his grandmother’s grave, expressing a heartfelt desire to trade everything for another hour in her company. His story is a powerful reminder of the impact and importance of the individuals around us.

Drawing from Phillips’ life lessons, we should appreciate the contributions of those who shape our lives and invest in ourselves. So, what does this investment look like?

Firstly, it is vital to express gratitude regularly. Simple daily affirmations, letters of appreciation, or thoughtful actions can show our recognition of the impact others have had on us. Secondly, we should engage in lifelong learning, nurture our passions, foster a growth mindset, and strive for balance in our physical, emotional, and mental health.

But we shouldn’t stop there. Taking a proactive approach towards our health is crucial. This includes regular medical check-ups, a balanced diet, consistent physical activity, mental wellness practices, and educating ourselves about health and potential risks.

At YouOptimised, we are committed to helping you embark on this journey towards optimal health. We offer complimentary resources to improve your health and modestly priced deep-screening services.

We recommend starting with nutrition, exercise, and education. Additionally, our whole body MRI and blood tests provide a comprehensive health overview, looking at all major areas for any signs of disease.
