The Science of Healthy Living

Super fun to be featured by Elysium Health on this beautiful infographic -- talking about the metabolism and the science of healthy living.

The graphic focuses on the small things that we can do daily that result in a longterm gain. While my specific tip focuses on the importance of always having a healthy snack on hand (you never know when hunger will strike!), I have a couple other tips for you --

  • FIND WHAT EXCITES YOU! First, you have to find what excites you! You’ll be more inclined to exercise if you find a method that you’re super jazzed about. Studios / gyms often have intro rates if you’re looking to try out classes. There are oodles of choices: Barre, Pilates, Running, Yoga, Zumba, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Kickboxing, TRX, Spinning and more.
  • CREATE A SCHEDULE! Once you find your workout of choice, create a schedule. Every Sunday night, plan your workouts to hold yourself accountable and keep consistency. If you’re taking a group class, ask a friend if they’d like to join you because we’re always #bettertogther.

Now that you're on track to a healthy and happy life, it can be helpful to take some time to learn about how your body works. Why does your body react a certain way to different workouts? What can you do to improve your recovery? In addition to offering up personal tips, the graphic below also examines some of these questions on a cellular level and is a great place to start reading up.
