I am a huge believer in finding whatever make you happy and healthy in life. If you don't have happiness and health, you don't have anything! A lot of brides want to get in shape for their wedding...look their best....FEEL their best. But this needs to be executed through a joyful, safe, balanced journey. Yes, you can diet....but no one diet works for everyone since everyone is different. Sure, you can go to the gym and run like a hamster on a wheel, but that does not necessarily give you inner peace and balance (maybe for those few select hard-core runners, but not me!).
Working with a certified health coach before your wedding (or ANY time of your life!) can be enlightening, empowering and overall life-changing. I sat down with Melanie Woodrow, and I was blown away by what she is doing for people. A certified health coach by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a registered Yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance, Melanie empowers women to know themselves so they can live their healthiest and most inspired life. Her recommendations are tailored to your unique and authentic lifestyle, body and goals. Melanie is currently based in Virginia, so for us tri-staters, she is available to consult over the phone or Skype, giving you flexibility to make these life changes from the comfort of your own home!
So before you rush to try and tackle the next steps to a better you by yourself, take a minute to check out www.wholenatured.com and see what Melanie can do for your life, your body and your soul.
