Body

We are all given only one body during this lifetime, so it should be cherished and taken care of. I am a healthy, confident and independent woman who can survive on my own, not only mentally and emotionally, but physically. I love yoga and dance, partaking in cardio and strength training often, and love trying new workouts as well as living an active lifestyle. I make sure to have healthy balanced meals and water throughout the day, and recharge every night with a good eight hours or so of sleep (when I can!), along with other health habits in my daily routine such as good hygiene and minimizing stress; mental health is just as important as physical health, and the two are intertwined more than most people realize. I place great importance on holistic wellness, natural healing, and herbal beauty methods.

Health and beauty is not just making sure to have your annual checkup every year with the doctor, optometrist, and dentist, and dressing up and looking nice. True beauty is an energy, a happiness and confidence along with a combination of good health and external beauty; it is a special spark of a spirit that shows one’s soul through the windows of the eyes, and it comes in many forms. After all, you can’t judge how beautiful someone is just by looking at them. I believe that when you feel healthy, beautiful and confident, then you will be happy with how you look and feel and give yourself the love your deserve. There should be no such thing as jealousy and comparison to others–each of the 7 billion people in this world are uniquely beautiful exactly the way God intended, and I am so thankful to have and love everything about my very own body.

Although I do suffer the occasional health problems including hormonal disorders such as PCOS which can lead to energy shifts and anxiety, with good health habits I can manage these effectively. I believe self-love is so valuable and necessary to love others. Without proper health, it is difficult to make the most out of what life has to offer, and a healthy human body has boundless potential. As a nurse, I am passionate about helping others in this under-emphasized vital aspect of life, with a focus on health promotion in terms of holistic health-spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and social health for my community as well as under-served populations.
