#HealthySligo is the hash tag of anewu Sligo, and I am running a campaign to get #HealthySligo trending with people and businesses who are influential in contributing to raising positive health awareness in Sligo.

Prior to opening anewu Sligo back in October 2014, I knew nothing about hash tags or Twitter and only used Facebook as a way to keep in touch with family and friends. I was lucky enough to qualify for business mentoring through Sligo Local Enterprise Office and I was assigned to Denise Rushe from Starling Digital Media Direction . Denise quickly opened my eyes to the fact that there would be more to starting anewu than just consulting with clients who wanted to improve their health and wellness. I had to learn how to use social media to promote anewu and let people know that I existed.

Now that I have been on the scene a little while, I am starting to get a handle on things, and as part of raising the profile of anewu in Sligo, I decided to follow my personal desire for health and came up with the hash tag #HealthySligo. I personally have benefited greatly as a direct result of improving my own health. By positively changing my own diet and lifestyle I have gained a healthy weight by shedding over 6 stone, I now have a healthy body and more happiness, energy and gratitude in my life. I am also more productive and I have not been sick in quite a few years. I can also say that while my physical health improved, I have also benefited from vastly improved mental wellness and clarity. This all leads me to believe that:

Healthy = Happy+Productive!

Therefore, it surely makes sense that we should be promoting health for Sligo as much as possible. Studies  show that we can manage, prevent and even reverse certain chronic medical conditions through diet and lifestyle changes. People who become more pro active about their health and wellness notice untold benefits and are surprised by how easy it actually is. Being healthy can mean different things to different people. My definition of healthy is “feeding my body with health promoting whole foods and supplements, getting enough sleep and daily movement, staying connected with family and friends and being kind to myself physically and mentally”. These are the ingredients that make me feel healthy and well. But everyone is different, and as such everyone’s definition and health journey will be different, while at anewu I respect this very important fact.

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

Mahatma Gandhi


  • If health really is wealth, then how wealthy are you?

  • Ask yourself, what do you really want from your health?

  • Are you happy with your present health and wellness?

  • What would you score your health out of 10?

  • Do you think it could be better?

  • What would be your first step to improving your health score?

Any change in life can be difficult and overwhelming, which is why working with Regina at anewu will help you to focus on what you really want and how to get it. Getting a focus and a plan in place with anewu is the first step! This is closely followed by information, support, action steps, recipes and building on successes while acknowledging and dealing with difficulties.

We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.

Tony Robbins
