I grew up on a farm in Canada, so being active has always been an important part of my life. I definitely notice that when I take really good care of my body, my quality of life is exponentially better! I love to inspire others to stretch out of their comfort zone and push forward to be the best version of themselves!
Healthy to me, means balance. I love to eat organic food and drink green juice and hike mountains, but I also love to go for mimosa brunch with friends, and enjoy popcorn at the movies. I I feel that if I’m mostly healthy, there’s still room for indulgences and fun - it really is all about balance and listening to your body.
I start and end each day by filling in my gratitude journal. This always puts me in a positive mood, and it’s nice to have this mini reset to start the day off in a happy place, and no matter how stressful or busy the day gets, I can come back to that happy place by reflecting on the good at the end of the day.
I eat a plant based diet which means that I try to make 60-80% of my diet plants (fruits and veggies), and the rest of my diet is whatever I feel like, but usually organic. Lately I’ve really been into a glass of organic red wine in the evening.
Like anyone, my days are usually jam packed - even though it’s mostly things that I love doing, it can be tough to make time for health especially exercise. I’ll meet up with a friend for a walk or yoga class in the evening so that I can get my social time in while doing something healthy and fun together.
I schedule workouts on my calendar just as if it’s a meeting, that way if the time is blocked out I’m more likely to honor that commitment to myself.
I also carry a water bottle with me at all times - It’s a huge 64 oz bottle that I fill with ice and lemon water, so that I have something to sip on all day long.
Sho is awesome for convenience and quality - it’s annoying to have to open a supplement bottle every morning and I used to skip taking supplements because I was in a hurry or just feeling lazy. With Sho it’s one click and you'r done! These sphere gels are small and easy to swallow, and I am feeling great clicking sho Energy+ and sho Balance every day.
I keep sho right beside my french press that I use to make my morning coffee. While the water is boiling I have time to grind my coffee beans and take my sho supplements for that extra vitality boost!
I love fitness, food, and fun (in no particular order!) Live life to the fullest with the best of intentions, and everything else will fall into place :)
