Wellness on the internet is shiny. It’s perfect. It looks like, if we do those same things in such a seemingly effortless way, we’ll look and feel great too. But real life isn’t perfect or shiny all the time, some days it’s messy and can on occasion be downright ugly. The perception of what it takes to be well and healthy these days has a lot of us feeling like we can self-care and health to the list of things we are not able to pull off, that feel utterly overwhelming or one more reason to beat ourselves up.
Real Self Care
In this episode I talk about what real wellness and real self care come down to – it’s literally one thing. Just one thing, and though it’s hard to do, if we can get this right more often than not the rest falls right into place.

One of THE BEST tools for your health is a CGM, continuous glucose monitor. It helps you effortlessly understand what foods work for you and even how stress and sleep impact your blood sugar allowing you to make changes in real time. A CGM also allows you to see your glucose variability (the difference between your highs and lows) which may be as important as how high your blood sugar runs. It’s an amazing tool and Nutrisense has my favorite interface with their app and dietitian support! It’s easy and straightforward and with code BETTEREVERYDAY at checkout you can save 30% off a subscription. Click here and be well on your way to better health.
