#WeHaveAVoice with Leaha Mattinson!
Leaha Mattinson is a change management specialist, life coach, speaker, and author who “walks her talk” in a truly extraordinary way. In 2008 she learned she would someday inherit Huntington’s disease, a genetic, neurological, terminal illness that affects the brain and progressively shuts down the mind and body. It was a devastating diagnosis—yet Leaha realized that to be true to the message she shares with clients, she must live her life consciously with enthusiasm, grace, and gratitude.
She developed her own wellness protocol to halt the onset of the disease by focusing on nutrition, exercise, restorative sleep, mindfulness, and a pervasive sense of reverence for life. But the most crucial attribute of Leaha’s success is her mindset: She embraces passion, happiness, and possibility, and turns all negativity into positive life experiences. She attributes her work ethic and values to the example set by her beloved parents and a childhood growing up on a farm where she was immersed in the rhythms of nature.
Her mission is to share these valuable insights with others. As a thought coach, she guides her clients toward self-improvement by helping them resolve underlying fears, interrupt bad habits, and break through barriers in order to achieve their goals. She is also a speaker, addressing topics such as facing chronic or terminal illness, finding the Wellness Within yourself, stress management, finding courage, discovering purpose and living in uncertainty.
Leaha is a wellness advocate, she hosts the Leaha Mattinson Show and Master Your Life with Cohost Dr. Howard Rankin on Internet radio, which reaches a global audience. They are aimed at people who are passionate about overcoming obstacles, wellness, personal growth, and self-improvement—those who are eager to bring real change to the way they live and find meaning in a world that’s often brutally stressful and disconnected.
Silver Linings: How to Be Unstoppable in the Face of a Terminal Illness is Leaha’s first book. It’s companion guide Silver Linings Course Correction Guide: Your Nurturing Journey Starts Here takes the reader further into self-discovery and wellness through their own deep contemplation.
She is a mother and grandmother who lives in Alberta, Canada. To learn more about Leaha, visit her website LeahaMattinson.comRead more »
