Over the next few weeks I’m going to share on my blog my FAV things that keep me healthy and in shape

Over the next few weeks I’m going to share on my blog my FAV things that keep me healthy and in shape. I get asked all the time from clients and friends, how do you stay in shape and look so young?! Which is SUCH a fabulous compliment 🙂 I can tell that I’m aging, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing, in fact it’s not a bad thing at all!

1. I walk A LOT all over the city! I make sure my little Vinnie and I go on our 90 minute doggie walks every day.  Once in a while when it’s rainy or freezing outside it’s a much shorter walk, but I would say that only happens a few days of the year. He just loves it and so do I, and it’s such a great bonding experience that we get to have together.
2. I’m really into yoga. I believe it gives me strength, long lean muscles, balance and best of all it puts me in a relaxed state.  The effects of yoga stay with me for days after I take a class. If you haven’t tried it or are looking for a new studio, I would definitely recommendCoconut Yoga on Lincoln in Chicago. They have many different classes and are always changing up the routine in the class, I’m pretty darn hooked there!
3.  I truly believe in being open to adjusting and adapting my lifestyle as I age. In the past, I didn’t think I needed yoga or really good sleep or much balance in my life. Because my schedule is so hectic and overwhelming I realize that I DO need these things. If something doesn’t work anymore I try to accept that and adjust accordingly. I’m always open to trying new things and challenging myself so this really works well for me.
4. Sleep-I’m obsessed with getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night. It usually takes me about two minutes to fall asleep and for for the most part I’m OUT COLD when I fall asleep! Thanks to acupuncture-the treatments have helped dramatically with my sleep. Believe it or not, I used to have insomnia until I started going to acupuncture at TriBalance . Stay tuned for next weeks blog where I’m going to talk a lot more about that and explain how it’s helped me in many areas of my life 🙂
I’m really into being comfortable, as I age, with what I’m wearing. I pretty much can’t handle anything that’s not super comfortable for me, with that being said here’s the lowdown on my uber comfy outfit.
This is a top that I got from Discovery  last summer but I thought it looked kind of fun and unique underneath this faux fur vest (also from Discovery). A little summer/winter combo happening. Since the top has a little bit of teal sprinkled throughout it, my F21 ripped jeans added that touch of color coordination. It was one of those days where it was a bright but overcast day so I definitely needed my sunnies, which are from Glamhairus! My booties are from Discovery  and I just love the color and slouchiness of them. Lastly, my earrings were a gift from a client and my clutch is from Glamhairus  and I usually only wear it in the summer months, but thought it looked great with this outfit.
If this chic pony excites you, check out my recent video that I did on how to achieve it here!
What are some things that you do to live a healthy lifestyle? Any suggestions for me? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
