I help moms get healthy and LOVE life

Oct 30, 2015

Welcome!!! It's the first episode of Real Talk with Lauren and Val!!!

In this show we talk real shit that bothers most people, what most are either afraid to speak about publicly or what most just ignore.

We live in such a busy life now that we get caught up in everyday life.

Val and I have spoken extensively and about almost everything so we figured we'd take the show on the air- literally...

We talk "our truth" NO scripts, no preparation but a topic:

This show's topic------the media.

It goes much deeper than just the media.  We end up talking about negativity, veganism, food triggers, control issues, body shaming, and an awesome "REAL" girl who shares her journey on Facebook, Sara Beisel...

Valerie “the health nut” Rosselli is a  certified holistic health coach who attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition  She helps people make the emotion/food connection, food being secondary and emotions being the primary basis for most decision making.

She has her readers tune into their bodies and has them make the right decisions mentally and physically that suits them as individuals.

She is also a yoga enthusiast, and just a girl with a zany personality, who likes to give people positive affirmations to start their day, end their day, or whenever you are feeling down and what to see that there IS a light at the end of tunnel.  

She believes that the key in life is balance, and to achieve balance there are steps that you have to take to get there. Small changes can make a big difference.

“Every journey begins with a single step” Chinese proverb

“life isn’t about learning how to weather the storm. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain” Vivian Greene.

Be you, find out what makes you tick, love and enjoy the journey it’s not a race to the finish line, and love yourself.

Here are 8+ ways to help your kids in self-discovery NOW, before they go crazy like us, their parents…

 

  1. Give them a journal
  2. Let them be a part in making their decisions
  3. Ask/teach your child how to feel with apps or homemade charts
  4. Don’t force them to be in a situation they are uncomfortable in or do something they don’t want to do
  5. Don’t force them to eat when they are not hungry
  6. Tell them its okay to be different that everyone else, including their friends
  7. Talk to them, ask them their favorites and create silly stories with them
  8. Don’t make them do things because we are “supposed” to …get out of that head

 

Always create a family plan of boundaries and rules before putting this into play.

 

And have fun watching your children become independent and self confident!!!

1.reading everything you can get your hands on
2.restricting food/self diagnosing
3.comparing yourself to others
 
In a world where we are surrounded with media it is extremely hard to not be influenced. It's human nature to want to look and feel good as well as be accepted by others.  Even if we say we don't care  we really do and our actions show it loud and clear.
 
In my experience there have been 3 things I have done (and i know I'm not alone) to ruin my health when in fact I though I was improving it.
 
The first thing is reading and watching everything I could get my hands on.  I would find myself reading blogs and watching videos and subscribing to newsletters from anyone that had something good or new to say.  It became out of control and overwhelming and before I knew it I had wasted hours and days.
 
The second thing is restricting certain foods or diagnosing myself with issues I probably never had.  I became obsessed with thinking I had a health issues that I could solve on my own because I'm anti-doctor and medications, which is still party true and i'm working on that. 
 
If you find that this is how you are with food....
 
The third thing is comparing yourself to others.  I know with me I have a body image issue that I'm working on.  When i'm getting ready to go out with friends or my guy I will get dressed up and look and feel great but then just as i'm ready to walk out of the door a horrible feeling hits a lot. Like i'm not good enough or I suddenly feel bad about myself.  Then when I finally tell myself to just leave the house and get to where I am going and see the other girls there I am internally comparing myself. Why? I don't even know. Something Im looking into.
 
Just because I am a health coach does not mean I have it all together.  Far from it.  I just have the skills and the knowledge to help others realize what I know, to be aware of their thoughts and feelings but I still work with a coach myself.  No one is perfect in anyway and I feel that we could all use someone, a coach, or a friend to open up to and have listen.
