Inspiration always has its roots, especially when it relates to a healthy lifestyle. This post is a blend of inspirational and educational quotes from amazing people, experts in their fields. I believe these quotes will encourage people (me included) to live healthier and be more mindful.
Breathwork Teacher About Importance of “Thank you”
“I practice gratitude through writing lists and saying thank you out loud for all the goodness that comes my way and all of the incredibly challenging lessons I am still learning. Living with a grateful heart means giving yourself permission—to be tender, forgiving, and loving. It’s an invitation to reach forward through whatever you are facing and embrace each feeling and experience as it arises.”—Ashley Neese, breathwork teacher, author.
Beauty Expert About Respecting Imperfections
“Have you ever noticed how imperfect nature is? Almost every tree is missing a branch. The grass isn’t always completely green. When I see these things, I’m always reminded that those imperfections are what make nature beautiful and whole. We all have flaws, but it is possible to find beauty in those flaws. So let the natural world be your mirror for practicing radical self-love even if your thighs don’t look like Gisele’s!” —Nitika Chopra, beauty and lifestyle expert.
Celebrity Nutritionist About an Optimal Way of Changing Diet
“Take it slow and stay positive. Most times, I see people veer from their quest for healthier eating because they try to take on too much at once. I always say, “Progress, not perfection”. If you realize at the beginning that you don’t have to be perfect all of the time, but you’re making a conscious effort to feed your body the nutrients it needs, it will make the transition to a healthier lifestyle all the easier.”— Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist, detox expert, author.
Dietitian About Your “Happy Weight”
“A happy weight, for me, is one that requires no mental or emotional pressure or burden about what I’m eating, what I’m doing with activity, releasing visual comparisons, appreciating my body for what it does for me on a daily basis to carry out my good work to you all, act with love and kindness, and so much more; it’s not a number, it’s a feeling and a state of being.”—McKel Hill, MS, RDN, LDN, founder of nutritionstripped.com
Integrative Health Expert About the Importance of Listening to Yourself
“The magic happens when you get to a place where your health is really personalized so you’re not mimicking a trend or what someone else is doing.”—Taz Bhatia, M.D.
Entrepreneur About Importance of Nourishing the Body
“Food is the foundation of every aspect of your health—from how much energy you have to how happy you feel. It’s information, and it informs the body to promote either disease or health. So my number one tool for feeling happy and positive is to fuel my body with fresh, organic plants every single day (especially leafy greens). This ensures that all those important microbes in my gut are happy and healthy. (That’s where 95 percent of our serotonin is made.) Plus, when you’re nourished, you get a ton of other benefits, too—like more energy, less bloat, better sleep—all of which contribute to happiness.” —Danielle DuBois, co-founder, organic food delivery service Sakara Life
