It’s My Birthday! What I’m Celebrating Today.
It’s my birthday today and I’m not shied to say that I’m 35 and feeling alive! I have lots to be grateful for, plus age is just a number. I believe it’s all in how you age.
I attribute feeling well and vibrant to all my conscious decisions, habits, and choices I make daily for my body, mind, and soul. I live a very healthy lifestyle that is now deeply set in my routine because I believe that if I know better, I must do better. Yes, the reason why I know better is because I’m exposed to all sorts of health tips as my career has always been in the health and wellness industry. I love what I do and I love to help educate others so that they can feel their best too!
Now I would love to share with you what I’m celebrating, which include aspects of my life that I’m proud of and grateful for today. PLUS, I’ll share what a typical day in my life looks like with some of my routine habits.
Health Goals Achieved
My #1 favorite thing I did this year: quit refined sugar for good! Bottom-line, it causes inflammation, so who needs it?!
I began to RECEIVE bodywork regularly: I’m always GIVING massages, bodywork, energy work, and nutrition counselling; but to make time for myself so that I may continue to serve others has been a transformative decision.
I cut down on coffee! *gasp*
I’m happy to say I got back into reading (something for mental health) and I finished reading 7 books this past year.

I take natural supplements to support my health. (Try taking the basics like a multivitamin, Omega-3, Vitamin C and D.)
