Believe me when I say, I know your wellness struggles because I am there. I’m in the trenches, struggling to make better choices each and every day.
Often, I’ll meet new people and they assume that I am living my life like I’m on the set of Little House on the Prairie, doing only good things for my body. You know, things like churning my own butter, milking cows, growing my own food, sprouting grains and fermenting beverages. Let me assure you – that is not my life. Not even close.
I’m the nutritionist who sneaks chips and dips once a month (you know at that certain time), who loves pizza on a Friday night after a crazy week and who, when life gets crazy, lets her fitness go out the window.
JUST LIKE YOU DO.
The thing is, I always go back to it. It’s the foundation of my life. Taking care of this vessel to be sure that I can squeeze each and every drop out of life for as long as possible.
I have watched so many people in my life and in my practice just stop. Stop living and stop doing. I always wonder, what are they waiting for?
I want to be the girl who’s running for the joy of it in her 60’s and beyond. Who gets down on the floor and wrestles with her grandchildren. Who FEELS amazing each and every day, for years to come.
The thing is Wellness is not black and white.
It’s not all or nothing. It’s getting up every day and doing better than you did the day before. Make that decision to go for a walk at lunch, to sit on a Bosu ball if you must watch TV at night – better yet, listen to a book on audible or meditate. Clear your mind. Spend time in nature.
Fill your body with whole, colourful foods. Make your day a rainbow of colour in the foods that you’re eating. Your cells will thank you.
While you’re at it, give your cells some Frankincense. Instrumental in cellular regeneration, this oil will contribute to a healthy inflammatory response in the body and create an ageless glow about you. It will help you to fight off free radicals and decrease oxidation. WIN!
There are so many small things that we can do each day to improve our health and wellness in the long run. What ONE THING will you do today that your future self will thank you for?
