It’s no secret that our lifestyle choices affect how we feel, but sometimes it’s hard to know if we’re on the right track to developing healthy living habits. Lucky for us, we are Kickin’ It with Kim Wallace, founder and editor of the lifestyle and natural beauty blog Kimberlyloc.com, and she’s sharing some great healthy living tips we can’t wait to try!

Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Life is hectic. We need strong foundations in our physical and emotional lives that can keep us grounded when everything around us seems chaotic. Healthy living means knowing what you can come back to what feels right when life seems so wrong.

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

My dear friend May Lindstrom inspires me every day to take time for myself, whether it be through a relaxing face mask or a soothing cup of hot tea. I also admire my yoga teachers, Kathleen and Wade, who remind me of the importance of detoxifying the body through my practice and who encourage a plant-based diet (though I am an omnivore). It’s all about being mindful of how you treat your body!

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

I love small plate-style dining because I love to have a little bit of everything. I can usually put together some sort of hummus, cheese, crackers, veggie and fruit spread in a pinch.

Do you have any tips for families who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes?

Be mindful of your hydration — drink often, and drink the good stuff. Water, tea, organic juice — make it count! You’ll notice a difference in your skin as well as your eating habits. Dehydration leads to overeating!

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

I don’t like to deprive myself of anything, but my body doesn’t agree with fast food and my skin knows if I’ve had too much soda. If I have either of these things, I can feel it and see it in my body and skin!

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

As a green beauty advocate, I’m passionate about teaching people how to clean up their personal care products. If we take the time to put nourishing, organic food into our bodies, we should also invest in putting healthy, natural products onto our bodies. Start small. Replace your lip balm with a USDA organic one. Swap your body wash or bar soap for one made with moisturizing shea butter, goat’s milk, olive oil and other natural ingredients. Switch to a nontoxic toothpaste that whitens and brightens just a well as your conventional one without the harsh detergents.
