PRACTICES FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. It begins with a conscious decision to shape a healthy lifestyle, and that can happen at any age or any stage in life. When considering your nutrition, how you care for your skin, or how you live your life, we believe that a holistic approach that emphasizes the interconnectedness of all these areas to be the healthiest and most sustainable method.
We have shared our go-to routines and habits. You do not have to master all practices at once. Identify small ways to incorporate healthier choices and be sure the changes you choose are practical and sustainable. Over time, these small changes can lead to a truly trans-formative outcome.
PRIORITIZE PLANT AND WHOLE FOODS
We truly believe that a whole food and plant-centric diet — meaning a diet comprised mostly of whole, unrefined (or minimally refined) plants, fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, lays the best foundation for healthy skin and overall good health. A plant-centric diet has been shown to: lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar, reverse or prevent heart disease, prevent and reverse obesity, lower risk of cancer and diabetes, reduce the risk and delay the onset of the chronic age-related diseases and improve overall quality of life.
Begin “crowding out” processed foods and gradually add more whole plant foods to your diet. You can begin with plant foods you already like and build from there. By eating more vegetables, fruits, and other nutrient-dense foods, your cravings for less healthy foods will naturally diminish.
