What is HEALTHY?
In the wellness world, using labels like healthy and unhealthy perpetuates the idea of perfection. With previous orthorexic tendencies, I approach the fitness world from a different perspective, and am adamant that we shift the discussion, and finally realize that healthy can me many different things.
In 2018 it is my goal to facilitate this discussion on Instagram, by sharing what #myhealthymeans and asking others to join in as well.
In order for this discussion and movement to take hold, I need you. I need your input, your viewpoints, your participation. I hope you’ll join me in this generational shift!!
Healthy From All Angles
When it comes to exercise, more is not always better. On the other hand, there are major benefits to regular movement. Helping people find their balance with movement is my 1st love and I can’t wait so share what #myhealthymeans when it comes to exercise.
Understanding food can nourish us in many ways; physically, emotionally, and spiritually, is one of the biggest mindset shifts needed in today’s wellness world. There are times when eating a cookie wouldn’t honor my body, and there are times when eating 5 cookies would. We are all individual, and have individual needs. #myhealthymeans finding the gray area.
Although wellness is comprised of many facets, food and exercise get all the attention. it is my goal to bring to light the importance of decreasing our overall stress load. This, like all other areas, is unique for everyone. Maybe it looks like eliminating, maybe it looks like daily rituals. This is why I want to share what #myhealthymeans when it comes to stress.
These are just three areas we can explore when it comes to health. We can also consider sleep, social interaction, financial wellness, spiritual health. #myhealthymeans pursuing a life that honors each of these ares…how about you?
I am 100% on board with the recent body-love movement and am so glad women and men across the nation are questioning our social norms. This #myhealthymeans campaign will help propel the discussion of self-love and body-positivity by understanding our uniqueness and individuality.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with pursuing wellness. The trick is, however to make sure we’re approaching it in a holistic, intuitive manner by trying to be well AND be ourselves.
My biggest hope for this campaign is that individuals will begin to see that comparison is fruitless, and we can only find true wellness when we look within.
