Introducing Dr Brett Hill…

Have you always been healthy and happy? Share your journey, which has landed you in the health industry…

No I definitely wasn’t always as healthy and happy as I am now.

In fact as a kid I was quite sickly. I was never terribly ill but I was never healthy either. I was always getting coughs and colds, I was on antibiotics at least half a dozen times a year, I was a terrible sleeper and I was asthmatic. It wasn’t really until it was time to choose a career path that I started looking into chiropractic, got adjusted by my first chiropractor and was exposed to a whole new world of health and wellness information.

Even then it took me a while to implement lifestyle change for myself. As a 19 year old I was working at a hardware store and my typical lunch was a pie, a pastie, a 1.25L soft drink and often a mars bar too. I drunk way more alcohol than I should and I did very little exercise.

Tell us about how you contribute to the health and happiness of others? 

My main role is sharing information and empowering people. I feel like there is so much health and well being information and research available now that just doesn’t make it to the general public and I see my role as taking that sometimes complex often conflicting information and distilling it down into simple, easy to act upon solutions that are available to everyone whether that be exercise, positive thinking, eating well or anything else to do with health and well being.

I share this information on my website, in my book, on my podcast shows and in the media. And now with The Business Of Wellness Coaching we are creating an army of wellness coaches who are going out and helping us further expand our reach.

What are your personal ‘must follow’ principles and why?

I think my only ‘must follow’ principles are to avoid chasing the ‘quick fixes’. So often we go for the fad diets, and the crash exercise programs and very rarely do they lead to long term positive results. Secondly to find what works for YOU.

Everyone is different so you just need to find the right changes to make right now that are going to be achievable for you.                                                

How did you start your day today?

I like to start my day with a nice long shower and plenty of time to wake up and get my thoughts organised before heading off. I rarely eat breakfast in the morning as I have found since I have been following the Paleo Diet I am just not hungry at that time. I usually eat a cooked brunch later in the day instead. I usually do my exercise in the evening.

Do you routinely supplement your diet?

I don’t take any supplements vitamins or minerals and consider all of the clean, real organic foods I eat to be super foods. They all have their place.

What was your latest inspiring health read?

I read a lot so this list could be quite long. The one I am reading right now is called The Slow Fix by Carl Honore.

Share with us a favourite health and happiness tip? 

My favourite health tips are probably drink more water, add some intensity to (and decrease the duration of) your exercise and take some ‘me time’ regularly.
