April’s Healthy Lifestyles Newsletter

Welcome to my monthly newsletter.  You can now look forward to my fitness and nutrition tips and motivation in its new Video Format.

This Month’s Topics:

1) NUTRITION: Great Tips to Help You Drink More Water

2) FITNESS:  Exercise of the Month – Rolling V

3) WELLNESS:  Aromatherapy for Stress Relief

4) NEWS:  Message from the winner of the 21 Day Challenge, *NEW Friday session


Not everybody loves the taste of water (especially me) however, we all need to drink it to ensure that our bodies continue functioning properly. If you want to drink more water, but aren’t crazy about the taste, here are some tips that can help:

Try Adding Fresh Fruit:

  • lemons
  • limes
  • oranges
  • crushed fresh raspberries
  • strawberry slices

Try Adding:

  • Cucumber
  • Fresh Mint


Exercise of the Month – Rolling V

*As seen on video

Start: Draw your knees toward your chest, lift your head, and grab your legs below the knees

(1). Rock up in to V and balance on your glutes

(2). Keeping your back long and chest lifted, straighten your legs and extend your arms side

(3). Hold for three seconds, then tuck and roll back to start. That’s one rep. Repeat 12-15x


Stress comes from many areas of life, and stress relief comes in many forms. An important first step in dealing with stress is to have a plan with one or two quick stress relief strategies that can help you relax and de-stress your mind.

Studies show that certain types of aromatherapy can be effective for stress relief.

Rosemary aromatherapy can be a good choice for de-stressing during the day when there is still work to be done.

Lavender aromatherapy can be a great choice for anyone trying to relax for sleep or feel more calm and relaxed during the day.

Peppermint aromatherapy has been found to increase memory and alertness, which can provide a great pick-me-up for too-tired, too-busy people, stressed students, and the overworked.
