What is the most important part of your daily routine?
Personal time! I think it’s important to make time for yourself. I enjoy going on walks in my neighborhood. I love being outdoors and soaking in this beautiful earth.
Whose daily routine would you most love to see?
Michelle Obama. She runs the world, looks incredible, and is an inspiration! How does she do it?!
What is your #1 wellness habit?
I take things in moderation. I don’t believe in completely eliminating food groups, so I’ll eat whatever I like to in moderation. If I want a piece of chocolate, I’ll have a piece of chocolate! The most important thing is to stay active, whether it’s a brisk walk or a pilates class, it’s important to care of your body.
What is your favorite part of living a healthy lifestyle?
I feel that living a healthy lifestyle has connected me to like-minded individuals. We share recipes, motivate one another, and do fitness classes together. For me personally, I have gained a lot more confidence in myself. I am by no means perfect, but I am happy and proud of my journey to live a more healthy lifestyle.
What is your biggest wellness challenge? How do you address it?
I’d say staying on track during the holidays! It’s tough to be motivated to go to the gym during the holiday season. I stay motivated by remembering that 1) I am NOT perfect. I fall off track, but what is important is that I get back on track in a timely manner. 2) I eat in moderation. Sure, I indulge a lot more during the holidays, but I remind myself that everyday is not Thanksgiving or Christmas, so I try not to be too harsh on my sweet tooth during these times of the year.
If you could give one piece of health advice to your kids, what would it be and why?
You have one body. Nourish it, love it, and take care of it. Don’t take it for granted. Feed it good foods, exercise it, and be confident in your own skin.
