It’s time to forget everything you know about dieting and health. All that stress, restricting, and counting won’t work in the long run. If you are looking for lasting health and happiness, it’s time to break the rules. Go ahead. Ditch the restrictions, drop the guilt, and start living a truly healthy and happy life today.
Feels pretty good, doesn’t it? Wouldn’t you rather feel good than stressed about health? I thought so and me too.
Being healthy isn’t about starving yourself, restricting your life or looking like someone else’s ideal size. Its about tuning in to what your body is really craving and learning to give it exactly what it needs. Your body isn’t your enemy and its time to start honoring it. Healthy living means bringing balance into your life, into your body, and into your mind. When you learn to do this, you live free, enjoy life, and allow yourself to Flourish.
This is what a happy, healthy life is all about.
I’m here to make it happen for you.
Welcome to your new Healthy and Happy Life.
Healthy Living isn’t just my passion, it’s my life and I’m on a mission to connect you back to the root of your health and happiness. Helping people drop the guilt and become happy and healthy is what I love to do. It took me years to realize how important these things were to me, and my health, and once I realized it, I never looked back.
So take a minute and ask yourself, are you getting everything you need out of your health? Is your life moving in a direction you are excited about, or one that makes you want to run, hide or shrink away?
Is your life going something like this?
Wake up each day exhausted and stressed, rush to get to work, skip breakfast but grab a cup of coffee to get through the morning. Sit at your desk all day feeling less than inspired and more than drained. Count down to mid morning for your second or third coffee break. Wait for lunch – which is dismal at best and anything but exciting, nevermind healthy. After lunch, the sluggishness begins. You reach for more coffee or a sugary snack.Head home and rush to get your errands done and spend time with loved ones. Throw together a pre-packaged meal or pick up take out.Maybe squeeze in a boredom inducing workout. Get stressed about all the things you still need to do and the lack of time for things you want to be doing. Rush to bed so you can do it all over again tomorrow.
Whether you are a teacher, doctor, librarian, CEO, telemarketer, programmer, or something I’ve never heard of, I bet you can relate.
A few years ago, I could to.
I spent years on the “right track”: going to college and graduate school,getting a well-paying job, getting married, buying a big house, and then BOOM, I realized I wasn’t happy. I wanted more, I wanted magic. I wanted passion. I was sick of feeling less than inspired and more than stressed. I felt empty, tired, grumpy, and not like myself. There was passion and a spark missing from my life and I could see my health and happiness slipping away a little more each day.
Then I found my passion. And my passion happened to be healthy living. It’s not just what I love, it’s what I live. My favorite thing in the world is to help people see their path and help them shine, through pure health and happiness. I now fill my days doing things that make me sparkle, shine, and radiate. I love my job, love my life, and feel happy and healthy. With a little help, I can get you there too.
I believe everyone deserves to live the life of their dreams. The key is living healthy and feeling happy for the long haul. Through reworking your ideas of food and exercise, paired with deep down stress-busters, you can let go of the things that weigh you down, and live a vibrantly healthy life.
In my signature program The Modern Detox, my book Detox 101, and weekly newsletter, I’ll show you exactly how to make this happen. I’ll show you that it’s possible to enjoy life and live without guilt, shame or deprivation. You’ll finally learn how to release the deep-down habits and patterns that keep you from living the live the life you deserve.
I can’t wait to help you get started!
Want to know even more about me? Here are a few things you might not know:
I am a yoga teacher, health coach, group fitness instructor, and personal trainer. I used to work in rehab and therapy, but my heart wasn’t in it and I felt ineffective. I started teaching yoga over 4 years, the day after graduation, and haven’t looked back since.
My husband and I have known each other for over a decade. We have been married for 6 years, dated for 5 before that (mostly long distance), and now live in Charleston, SC with 2 lovable dogs.
I don’t consider myself from anywhere. I moved around a ton, and have never lived anywhere more than 9 years. Where I live now is currently the longest stint in one place.
When I was little, I wanted to be a teacher and an author. I dreamed of teaching first grade and writing children’s books. Instead, I teach yoga and write non-fiction. My first book is Detox 101. I guess sometimes when you are little, you just kind of know things 😉
I am a quiet person. I need a ton of space and alone time or I start to get cranky. I have to be very mindful when visiting people, or when having people visit me, that I get enough time to decompress and be by myself.
I am 31. And I was secretly pretty excited to be in my 30’s, like a “real adult”. But I forget sometimes and still think I am in the “under 30” category.
I had a cat for 20 years. She died in my lap, while Barry and I were petting her, telling her it was ok to go. Her passing away was one of the hardest things I have ever gone through and I still miss her each and every day.
I spend most days in stretchy yoga pants, slippers, and gray sweatshirts. But I absolutely love getting dressed up, throwing on some ridiculously high heels, and heading out for a fancy dinner and drinks. It’s all about balance, right?
I am hard on myself and very critical of my work. My parents say I’ve always been that way. But I’m working on it.
I love dance parties and often sing and dance with my dogs in our kitchen while making dinner.
I love checking emails and social media. Seeing a little red circle or notification always makes me excited, so send me messages, comments, emails, and likes. I’d love to hear from you and see how it’s going. Make sure to sign up below to stay in touch with everything that’s going on.
