As a personal trainer and weight-loss coach, I’ve been teaching people how to create better habits and helping them reach a healthy weight for almost 15 years.

My first success story was my own: I went from being 25 pounds overweight, riddled with anxiety and insomnia and living off of soda, chips and desserts to having a healthy relationship with food, a regular workout program, and a yoga and meditation practice that calms my mind. At first, establishing these habits took a lot of time. But over the years, I’ve perfected them and created tons of shortcuts not only for myself, but also for my clients.

Many people think that making your health a priority is time consuming. There was a time that I thought that, too! But the small changes we make really can have a big impact. Here are some of my go-to diet, fitness and mental health tricks that will help you prioritize your health without disrupting your daily routine.
