Being a teenager, I know first-hand how society’s standards of beauty can cultivate unhealthy habits. You don’t need to be a size 2 to be beautiful; you just need to be positive and happy. I have found that by fueling my body with the right nutrients and by
leading an active lifestyle my confidence and overall wellbeing has escalated. I hope that by sharing my story, recipes, and tips to stay fit that I can influence and educate the American youth to put their health first, and the cereal box down.
However, wellness goes far beyond physical matters. Wellness is all about balance. We must find balance in all aspects of our lives: school, work, family, friends, sleep, fitness, and diet. As a college student, I know what it is like to be stressed, busy and overwhelmed with life. We must take time to study and be dedicated to school or work, but we must also be dedicated to ourselves. My goal is to live an optimistic and balanced lifestyle inside and out, and to guide others to do the same.
You must take care of yourself and choose to think positive in order to be well.
