  • Healthy living is about embracing sustainable changes that make you feel vibrant inside and out.

  • This article is your travel guide to navigating the world of wellness.

Start Your Wellness Journey

Your journey to better health begins with that initial decision to make a change.

Before we get into the tips let me tell you this: You have to take it one step at a time.

Please remember that it’s not about perfection; it’s about progress.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Lao Tzu

Nutrition for Healthy Living

Eating for a healthier you starts with knowing what’s good for you but I probably don’t have to tell you to stop binge eating or snacking all the time.

So, then what is stopping you from making those changes? It’s the thoughts and habits you have.

Instead of making excuses allowing yourself to eat unhealthy foods, try to get used to the habits below:

Balanced Meals:

  1. Think of your plate as a colorful palette. Fill it with veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains – like creating a tasty work of art.
  2. Look up recipes you’re excited about and make cooking fun for yourself. For example, every week I prepare a new recipe while also listening to my favorite music.
  3. Spread out your meals during the day to have constant energy and make sure to eat enough – not a 1200 kcal diet ladies! (You can track using MyFitnessPal)

Mindful eating:

  1. Imagine really savoring every bite of your favorite snack. It’s about enjoying each mouthful and being present in the moment.
  2. Don’t distract yourself from eating by watching Netflix or TV. Focus on your food, chew every bite and make this a moment you share with other people instead of screens.

Stay Hydrated:

  1. Imagine your body as a plant. Water it with love and watch it flourish.
  2. Get an app or use a big water bottle, so you now how far along you are. Tracking is a way to measure your succes!
  3. Drinking water isn’t a chore; it’s like giving your body a sip of vitality throughout the day and a glow to your skin.

“We are what we repeatedly eat. Healthy eating is not an act, but a habit.”

Felicity Luckey

Exercise for Health Living

Besides what you put into your body, you know that moving your body is essential for healthy living.

But what does your exercise routine actually look like? Do you workout, go for runs and stretch?

Or is the only movement you get walking to the fridge? – I’m sorry if this was hard but it needs to be said.

If you want to be happier, healthier and fit, start doing these activities instead:

  1. Dance to Your Beat: You don’t need a dance floor to groove. Put on your favorite tunes and dance like nobody’s watching. It’s not just exercise; it’s a joyful celebration of movement.
  2. Strength for Confidence: Imagine doing exercises that make you feel strong, like lifting weights or practicing yoga. It’s about embracing your inner power.
  3. Step by Step Cardio: Imagine taking a brisk walk in the park or pedaling along a scenic trail. Cardio isn’t a punishment; it’s a chance to connect with nature while boosting your heart health.

“Exercise should be regarded as a tribute to the heart.”

Gene Tunney

Rest for Health Living

You know the saying eat, sleep, train and repeat? Well, the only part we haven’t talked about yet is sleep.

But I like to take this broader and learn you more about rest in general. I’ll divide it further into physical, mental and spiritual, as always.

There are many practices to make your body, mind and spirit feel at peace. Look at these for example:

  1. Sweet Dreams for Wellness: Imagine sleep as your body’s rejuvenation time. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep to wake up refreshed, with radiant skin and a clear mind.
  2. Peaceful Pauses: Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and exhale stress. These mini-breaks help you find calm amidst the chaos of daily life.
  3. Zen Moments: Visualize yourself practicing yoga, meditating, praying or simply enjoying quiet moments. These activities foster inner peace and a radiant glow.

“Wellness is the glow that shows on your face when you’re at peace.”


Support for Health Living

Even if you know about nutrition, exercise and rest for healthy living, you might find it a difficult journey.

This is completely normal because so much change is required which can be hard. But you know what?

You are not the only one and there are ways to make everything easier. So, try these 3 steps to endure!

  1. Buddy Up: Imagine having a friend to join you on your health journey. Sharing successes and challenges makes the road easier.
  2. Prepare Your Home: Change your surroundings to fit your new lifestyle. Design your kitchen like a health haven and your bedroom like a sanctuary of rest. Remove all the temptations!
  3. Guidance from Experts: Imagine having that person, you can always come to when you’re struggling. If you want, I can help you and support you every step of the way.

“Surround yourself with people who lift you higher.”

Oprah Winfrey
