Sam and Kathy chat it up with Valerie Bisharat, who helps women live a healthy lifestyle that’s sustainable and stress-free. There is a true correlation between your health habits and your energy levels. When you are healthier, you can feel better, and you can show up stronger.
Valerie tells us about our body image. We have to ensure that our thoughts about our own body are our own thoughts and we also have to define beauty for ourselves. Once we start to compare ourselves to others, it can impact the way we feel about our own bodies and we can even give ourselves unrealistic goals.
Taking care of your body gives you more energy, focus, endurance, and gives you the foundation for everything else in your life. When you nourish yourself, the rest of your life will be bumped up a level. Once you eliminate the chaos and work on your health and fitness, you’ll become a badass!
