My life in Austin- self care, healing tips and favorite places to go. Enjoy your life and still heal your body!
I often get asked the question by my clients, so “what would you do” or “what’s your life like outside of work.” I think there is definitely an expectation that if you preach something then ya best practice it! So that being said, I definitely think my business and personal life mesh into one giant gray area. My passion for health and wellness is what got me into the business! So I absolutely practice what I preach. Am I perfect? Heck no! But I certainly take steps daily to improve my health. This could mean in terms of diet, movement or emotional care.
So, I am here to give you what an ideal day of fun looks like for me here in Austin. These are all activities I participate in on at least a weekly basis. So if you’re looking for ways to have fun and still heal your body, this is your guide.
I’ve put this together so that you can continue to have fun and enjoyment during your healing journey!
A Morning Walk around Lady Bird Lake.
Starting your day with a fasted walk can improve insulin and blood sugar levels. Spending time in nature in the morning hours is a great way support circadian rhythm. Walking in general can be a form of meditation. I love going with a friend, listening to a podcast or soaking up the natural sound of the birds just waking up.
Picnik Breakfast and Beverage
Picnik is the perfect place is you want a nourishing, high quality meal. I personally love grabbing a breakfast there. Unlike many other breakfast options, these are nutritious, low in sugar and will keep you satiated. I never pass up their Mayan Mocha drink. A blissful mixture of coffee and cacao with some healing ingredients.
A trip to the Central Austin Library
Libraries are infectious to me. Where else can you go that provides so much knowledge? I love to grab a few books and head to the roof deck and do some reading.
Grabbing Seasonal Foods at the Austin Farmers Market
I’ve spent the last few years getting to know some of the farmers here in Austin. I love the entire experience of going to the market. The local picks are incredible. Outdoor markets are always fun!
Drop In Black Swan Yoga Class
Black Swan has been my go-to studio. Yoga allows my brain to slow down, I focus on my breath, heart space and stretch my body. I often find that after yoga I have much more clarity about situations. Just like you, I also get overwhelmed and need some time to process and recharge.
Salsa Class at Moonfire Lounge
Dancing fills my soul on all levels. No matter what is going on, I can immediately find a happy place when I move my body to good music. I especially love learning salsa.
I love winding down in the evening with a cup of herbal tea, a piece of local dark chocolate and music playing in the background.
