Have Your Best Year Yet By Rethinking Your Goal Setting

As I write my article this month, I am hurtling down the M1 to spend the festive season with my family in the South with my laptop wobbling precariously on my lap. I am not driving, I hasten to add, but it will be my turn soon. Every year, we… Read More

My Prescription for Managing Depression

It can’t be cured, but it can be managed. In 2016, the UK saw a doubling of prescribed anti-depressants in the previous decade. I was part of that statistic. At the end of 2016, I was diagnosed with clinical depression, anxiety from PTSD and had an eating disorder. After explaining… Read More

Vedic Astrology: It’s Written in the Stars

The path of change, the road to reinvention and the journey of transformation is not always a clear one. While there can be smooth, downhill runs, there can also be storms clouding the way forward, treacherous cliff hanging, windy roads that threaten your resolve and uphill climbs that question your… Read More

Our Ongoing Battle with Body Image

I have a secret. I wonder if anyone else has the same secret. Or perhaps not a secret, but more of a hidden truth, one of shame and of embarrassment from potential ridicule. My shameful truth is that I am a fat person trapped in a thin person’s body. In… Read More

Reinvention: Making the Most of You

On the morning after the latest royal wedding, I reflect. I reflect on a generation of new royals who have transformed the British Monarchy. I reflect on a serenely beautiful, independent woman who walked herself down the aisle, proud of her roots, her heritage, her story, in front of the… Read More

About Ali Mortimer

Ali Mortimer

Ali believes that you can heal yourself happy through a balanced lifestyle of nourishing yourself not only on the plate but off the plate by having fun, enjoying the people you are with, loving the work you do, having a bigger purpose and embracing and moving your body regularly. Ali spent 20 years in consultancy and industry with a focus on retail and IT where she enjoyed coaching, empowering and motivating teams to deliver big results. She also started her own business in the health and wellness industry and her interest was piqued and a new passion was born. After suffering burnout in 2013, from ignoring the signs of stress of working a full time job, looking after her family and as her mother’s Alzheimer’s took hold, her curiosity and interest in lifestyle health began. She started to understand and then experiment with diet, nutrition as well as new holistic habits, including mindfulness, meditation, nature bathing and active relaxation in addition to engaging in more active physical exercise. In 2016, Ali was diagnosed with clinical depression from PTSD, insomnia and was suffering an eating disorder. It was then she experienced first hand the benefits and healed herself happy using lifestyle medicine rather than prescriptive drugs. She now runs her health coaching practice to help others find their path to health and happiness through bespoke individual coaching, group coaching, corporate coaching and sharing her learnings and lifestyle practices through an online blog, a monthly magazine column and interactive social media.
