Kathryn radiates health and wellness in all ways and every time I see her I learn a little something. Last time we chatted all things aromatherapy. I can’t wait to soak up more Kathryn when her next book comes out, Aim True, in January 2016 (published by William Morrow, an imprint of Harper Collins.) In the meantime, you can learn how this yoga beauty lives her most Nutritious Life here:
How do you DRINK UP?
I’m downing water as I write this! Hydration is key. Mainly water, but I love coconut water as well. When I lift a glass it’s normally a California red, New Zealand white, or rose bubble:)
How do you EAT EMPOWERED?
I adore my food and view the whole experiences around food as love. I’m a huge foodie and find no better way to tell someone I love them than by preparing a homemade meal for them. I believe in making daily healthy choices but living guilt free when I choose to indulge.
How do you LIVE CONSCIOUSLY?
I take small actions that I know add up. I always carry re-usable bags and water jar in my purse to cut back on plastic waste. I fundraise regularly for my project Poses for Paws that raises awareness and helps different animal shelters. I surround myself with people who lift me up and challenge me to grow on a daily basis.
How do you LOVE MORE?
Loving comes naturally. My husband says I always see the best in people because I believe in magic. I believe my capacity to love can influence others to do the same, so I love more by example.
How do you NURTURE YOURSELF?
Epsom salt baths, reading juicy fiction novels, taking time to write for myself and experimenting in the kitchen.
How do you SLEEP DEEP?
I try to stay away from my phone and emails (or other stressors) before bedtime. I make a blend of essential oils that I put on before bedtime and sleep with a humidifier that diffuses my favorite relaxing oil blends.
How do you STRESS LESS?
I meditate daily, practice yoga, walk my dogs, lounge on my Biomat and take time away from my electronics.
How do you SWEAT OFTEN?
I’ve been practicing yoga for years and recently fell in love with martial arts and boxing.
