We’re over halfway through the first month of 2018!!! I have to say, this year is going pretty great so far. My schedule has hit a nice stride and I’m feeling productive and well rested (what is happening – – – how do I keep this going forever?!?!).
I think one of the reasons I’m loving this month is all the great connections I’ve made through the #myhealthymeans campaign. I’ve put traditional blog posts on hold this month (don’t worry, they’re coming back soon), so I can bring you more LIVE interaction and inspiration/conversation with some of my favorite Instagrammers. If you’ve been following along, you know I’ve had my fair share of technology problems (disgusted rolling-eye emoji), but that hasn’t stopped the campaign. I’m on a mission to help people realize healthy means so many different things. Humans are variable. And so too, is “healthy”.
This past week I spoke with some amazing women. An entrepreneur (hello schedule issues), an #RD2B, and an eating disorder recovery coach. These individual perspectives brought so much clarity on the issue that healthy looks different on everyone. It’s defined differently for each of us. And, we have the power to decide what healthy means for us.
So, in case you missed it, here are the recaps from this weeks discussions:
Tuesday – Charleston Weekender
Liz is the owner of Charleston Weekender and co-owner of Cannonborough Collective. With all her business duties you can imagine that healthy sometimes means navigating a hectic schedule. We discussed the importance of her morning routine, how she focuses primarily on mental health, and a few of her hacks for feeling great throughout her busy days.
Specifically, we discussed the Miracle Morning, Walking and Listening to a Podcast, and how to create boundaries with social media (log off after 9pm, and don’t check it until after the morning routine).
Thursday – Eat Your Heart Out
My discussion with Alex was all about intuitive eating and health at every size. We had more tech issues than a grandparent on graduation day, but she hung with me and was such a good sport. She’s currently pursuing her masters in nutrition and is working to become a Registered Dietitian.
Saturday – Recovery Love and Care
Jayne is one of my great friends in Charleston and we had such a great conversation about recovering from disordered eating, and how to recognize disordered mindsets in yourself and others. We also touched on how we can be aware of dangerous mindsets (diet talk, body shaming, etc), but still live in the real world and not be triggered by everything.
She highly recommended reading Jenni Schaefer’s materials.
