In some way or another, we have all tried to live a mindful life. We purchased the fitness guru’s workout plan, we followed to a T the advice we read on that self-help book, or we bought the calming kit with eucalyptus oil and oil diffuser.
But, even with our best intentions, we couldn’t stick to the routine or we didn’t use what we bought.
Then, we most likely blamed ourselves. Maybe we didn’t try hard enough. Maybe we are not good enough.
But that is far from the truth: those recommendations or items are actually great ways of living a mindful life. But the thing is, each of our lives, and our circumstances are different. Our motivations are also different. So, what worked for someone else may not work for us.
The other thing is, life happens. And that’s okay. Our schedules are unpredictable, accidents happen, and overall, we are living busy lives.
I believe that sometimes we set goals and expectations that do not align with us (whether it is fitness, nutrition, self-care, and/or mindfulness). And when things do not go as planned, we end up doing nothing instead.
So, even if you are going through a hectic phase in your life, my goal is to provide you with the content and resources that you can adapt to your health goals and needs.
My name is Irene Mejia, I am a registered dietitian, entrepreneur, certified personal trainer, and sports nutrition specialist.
In all of the aspects of my career, I firmly believe in adaptation, sustainability, and balance. From personal experience and from working with clients, I had to learn the hard way that usually setting your expectations way too high and trying to do what others are doing, well – doesn’t really work. Or if it does, it is just temporary.
It’s all about baby steps: small changes that are sustainable and adapted to the person’s goals and circumstances, while maintaining a balance in other aspects of their lives.
