Myth busting: Reframing Healthy Habits to Work in Your Real Life

Feel confident that the health choices you make, will make a DIFFERENCE

There's a lot of "experts" out there on what is healthy, but YOU are the expert on yourself, and we're myth busting that healthy habits are not one-size-fits-all, nor are they all-or-nothing. To be healthy is more than how you eat, what you look like, exercise and your cholesterol levels. It’s about all the aspects of your life.

When health is only defined by what you eat and how you exercise, you are missing the scope of health in REAL LIFE.

When you're able to let go of your all-or-nothing mentality and stop trying to fit square pegs into round holes, thinking that the best approach is what everyone else is doing. You’ll discover you are able to make choices this very minute that will move your health forward.

Tune in as Master Health Coach Heather Lynn Darby and Michelle Johnson Jerome discuss myth busting what healthy is and set you up to redefine your healthy habits to foster health in a way that fits into your real life.
