Today we're talking to TUSOL ambassador Amanda Unitas. Amanda is a a dietitian and her main focus health topics are mostly anti-inflammatory nutrition and stress management.
We ask her about her health and wellness journey, her daily routines and what her typical day looks like.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day looks like getting some light movement in the morning with meditation and journaling then logging onto work on my laptop. I meet with clients throughout the day on a 1:1 capacity working on various health topics but mostly- anti-inflammatory nutrition and stress management. Then I usually workout mid-day and then the early evening and then I relax with my husband and doggo at night.
What’s your morning routine and how do you stay healthy on a busy schedule?
My morning routine is to slowly get out of bed and brush my teeth and complete my morning skincare routine. Then I feed my dog and take her for a walk which I use as a time to just be. I won’t turn my phone on until I have had a moment to be present with my breath and body.
What is your health and wellness journey?
My health and wellness journey is all about reducing inflammation, free radicals, and stress and putting my energy towards those things that light me up :)
What’s one thing you can’t live without?
Who's your typical client?
My typical client is someone with a lot of questions regarding their health (auto-immune issues, unexplained pain, digestive symptoms) who hasn't been able to find solutions through conventional medicine.-
How do you stay balanced running your own company?
Making my health a priority through self-care- taking baths, getting acupuncture, journaling, eating a balanced diet, and including superfoods.
