7 ways to have a more balanced relationship with “wellness” from Glo’s own Kim Strother

Over the past decade as a celebrity personal tutor, yoga coach, and health coach, I’ve learned so much better about what it means to lead a healthful life. One major topic I’ve seen with many clients is the imbalanced “all or nothing” feeling that comes when you decide to shift into a healthier life-style. Here are 7 ways to reframe your relationship with wellness 😛 TAGEND

1. Ditch the scale and pay attention to how you feel

The mainstream media around “fitness” has us preoccupied with the scale and forgetting that it’s how we FEEL that matters most. Prioritize your intensity and happy and stop giving the scale cause unnecessary stress

2. Quality food> capacity of calories

Here’s your dispensation slip to stop counting calories. So numerous nutrients that boast being a “low calorie” option are just made of processed ingredients and sugar. These produces are often absolutely lacking in any nutrients and will just leave you hungry and unsatisfied. Let’s start to be considered a better quality of our menu- look for organic, neighbourhood, and non-gmo and try to eat as numerous veggies as possible.

There is no “one-size-fits-all” formula for health. If a workout is straining your body too much, try something more gentle. Our body always knows best!

3. Learn to listen to your body

There is no “one-size-fits-all” formula for state. A food or workout that is effective for your friend may very well not is ineffective for you! We all have such peculiar organisations and needs. Start tuning in to your person and listening to how it feels. If you eat something that manufactures your tummy hurt- don’t eat it! If a workout is damaging your torso too much, try something more gentle. Our body always knows best!

4. Don’t forget to breathe

So many of us live life hampering our wheeze! Tuning into your sigh is a quick, easy, and free action to come back to the present moment. If you’re feeling stressed or overtaken try this: Close your eyes, put one hand on your heart and the other on your paunch and practice breathing 6 counts in and 6 weighs out. Try it for 5 minutes. This simple practice will tranquilize your nervous system and get your body back into neutral.

5. Start incorporating positive affirmations

Every time you hear your inner critic starting to act up, reframe your thoughts into positives. If you’re unhappy with how your torso gazes today, instead of going into a dishonor spiraling, places great importance on how grateful you are that your organization keep moving and that it carries you through each and every day. Try glancing in the mirror and saying something positive to yourself daily. Let’s all shift away from the negative and prove the good.
