30 Health Lessons I Learned Before Turning 30

If you've been reading my newsletter (SIGN UP FOR THAT HERE) or following my writing, you'll know that I believe living a healthy life is based on both mind and body. What we think effects us physically, and what we do physically can effect us mentally.

So, with that mindset and as I enjoy my last day in my 20s, I decided it would be best to take a look back at my wellness journey and pick out the top things that made a difference in my life. 

Here are the 30 Health Lessons I Learned Before Turning 30:

  1. Eat greens every day.
  2. Diets don't work. Lifestyle changes do.
  3. Happiness is a choice.
  4. You can't change someone, you can only change how you react to them.
  5. Walk 10,000 steps a day.
  6. Guilt is not a real emotion.
  7. Forgiveness is empowering, not a sign of weakness.
