“You need to invest in yourself so that everybody else around you can benefit.” — Travis Belanger
Travis Belanger, a dynamic coach, provides emphasis on the importance of redefining wellness for men. When men are asked by people who they are, a lot will typically answer by saying what they do for work not about who they are as a person.
A roadblock for personal development is the patterns: the generational trauma or even generational behaviours. Travis is thankful that as a child his parents for providing books promoting different ways of thinking creating awareness at an early age. When he was 19 and moved to the city, an influential man gave him a book entitled “How To Win Friends and Influence People” which he describes as something that tweaked his brain.
Travis shares his experience of a friend who thanks him for saving his marriage just because Travis had advised him to read a book. It is from there that he states that a lot of guys don't share those experiences because it's vulnerable, emotional and sensitive but for Travis, he portrays a “who cares?” mindset as long as it would help a person’s life to be better.
A wellness practice Travis is currently fond of is cranial sacral therapy. He says that with this practice, you're focused on something completely different than what you normally are.
Ignite Your Life Brotherhood is an initiative by Travis that is mainly focused on men’s personal development to break stereotypes of men being afraid of vulnerability and expressing their emotional needs. It is a safe container for guys to have a conversation that they really want to have.
● Listening to something that's other than your work that is good for your mind that talks about your body and your heart
● Reading a book inspires us to think in a different way
● Spend money on quality tools because what you put in is what you get out
We invite you to ignite the Wellness Warrior in YOU!
