That’s right, I just called you gorgeous. Because you are!! You might not feel that way right now, but peel away the layers, and you’re find that you truly are. We need more women in the world who shine from within, and my mission, my purpose, my calling is to help you find the spark that lets you glow.
Can you imagine leaping out of bed each morning, excited to greet the day? Because you’ve got stuff to do, families to love, friends to cheer on, dreams to achieve, actions to take that will leave the world better a better place?
But even the best of us sometimes have a hard time hitting the ground running each morning. Take it from me, a healthy lifestyle will go MILES to help you be the best version of YOU.
Think of me as your own personal health coach at the ready. And I mean that completely seriously – I have information available on nearly every health/wellness/beauty topic. And if you can’t find what you need on my website, YouTube, books or Facebook, you can ask me directly and I’ll be sure to get you an answer.
Creating a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about yoga and and green smoothies. It’s about finding a path that fuels every facet of your life with joy. Trust me, I can squeeze into the skinniest jeans or have the best hair day, but if I don’t feel good about who I am as a person, there’s not an anti-aging serum on the planet that makes me feel – or look – truly gorgeous.
Brass tacks: I eat a whole foods, plant-based diet (in other words, I’m mostly vegan). I exercise as much as possible (10 minutes here and 10 minutes there, to make up about an hour a day). I have a natural, green skincare regimen (that changes all the time because I’m constantly reviewing products). I clean my home with the healthiest options available. I dedicate time to unplug from technology and meditate. And I find personal fulfillment in being of service to others. That right there is my philosophy (or philo-Sophie, if you will). But it may not be yours!!
I want to be completely honest with you: My house is not full of crystals, I can’t meditate for three hours daily, and I read books outside the self-help genre. I make many mistakes, and the best lessons that I’ve learned over the years have been through trial and error (sometimes funny, sometimes not so much!). But, the major passion in my life is to find what really works in the wellness space, and what doesn’t. With so much confusing and conflicting information out there, my intention is to bring you only information that is rooted in solid evidence-based science. Easier said than done, but allow me to do the homework for you.
Living in Hollywood, I’ve been lucky enough to teach some of the most gorgeous women on earth, including Oprah and Julia Roberts, to live a greener, healthier life. My responsibility to you, as I trudge this happy path, is to keep up with the latest research so that we can nerd out together. Did I mention…I’m now a board-certified nutritionist, and have been teaching yoga and fitness for almost two decades? I’m also knee-deep into another science degree!
Your Big Priority
I invite you to make your wellness a priority NOW. Don’t wait for the wake-up call that forces you to live a lifestyle that is less-than-pleasant. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But, we tend to have an inbuilt resistance to do what’s really good for us. Plus, we’re swimming against the tide of stress, a broken food system, dollars that won’t stretch far enough, and people who don’t get us. However, I encourage you to put YOU top of your priority list – Gotta put your own oxygen mask on first, right? When you are feeling the best version of you, you are way more able to be of service to others.
Wellness might be a series of experiments for you. Maybe a 100% plant-based diet doesn’t work for you, but at least try it before you say “no”. Maybe you love spinning, but haven’t ever picked up a kettlebell. Maybe you need a just a few minutes of meditation before you head to Facebook. I’m personally inviting you … no URGING you … to step out of your comfort zone on your wellness journey. Not everything will be a crashing personal success, but just the experience will make you better!
Life is not a rehearsal. Stop killing yourself with the shame, blame and judgement. Stop with the extreme diets and protocols that lead to short term weight-loss and long-term ill health. You only have one life. It’s relatively short, so why not live it to the fullest now? Didn’t I say you’re gorgeous already! I believe in walking the middle path and finding a wellness way that works for you and your lifestyle. And honestly, I’m talking about a handful of easy, simple and affordable daily actions that could make all the difference.
