Mituri Pradip Sharma | Nim-Véda Australia
On morning detoxes:
“I drink a concoction of two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother Enzyme in a glass of warm water every morning before consuming anything else. This serves to clean my insides and boost my immune system first thing in the morning - similar to a natural power boost.”

Dr. Carrie Rigoni | Wild And Free Boxes
On making time for yourself:
“Balancing being a mum and running a business can be difficult! If you don’t fill your own cup first, everything else will be much more difficult. Whatever refreshes you.. make time to do it. Exercise, enjoy some sunshine, put your feet on the grass, or savour that square of chocolate! Your body will thank you for it.”

On loving yourself:
“My number one health tip: practice Self Compassion. When times get tough, the wandering mind questions what you do and may want to give up. Be compassionate to yourself, first and foremost!”

Mim Jenkinson | Love From Mim
On knowing your body:
“After undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 2015, I take my health far more seriously now. There is a balance to be found between being neglectful and overly cautious when it comes to symptoms. That said, I think it's imperative to take early action and doing so certainly saved my life.
Get to know your body and know when something changes. Do not ignore signs that your body is trying to tell you and ask a medical professional for their opinion.
My Deal Pro Tip:
Stay fit for your family
Maintaining your health is ten times more important once you have a family. It won’t always be easy downing super kale concoctions or facing that early morning run. But weekends at the playground with your kids is a good reminder of what it’s all for in the end.
Amy Darcy | Eat Pray Workout
On sticking to your guns:
“If you have a health goal, know your motivations. Then be organised and create habits which will help you reach that goal. Most of all be kind to yourself, knowing the process won't be perfect but you can still make progress!”

Carlos Elysee | 30 Minute Blitz
On habits that last:
“Don't try exercise fads or extreme routines that aren't sustainable. Exercise should be part of your lifestyle, something that you will do for the rest of your life, not just for a short term goal or New Year's resolution, so set a routine and follow a program that is time efficient, that you enjoy, and that you are consistent with.”

My Deal Pro Tip:
Exercise can be anything
Don’t fall for the trap that only traditional exercise routines will get you results. Anything can be exercise from carrying your grocery shopping home to pushing your toddler on a swing. Both count as incidental arm workouts!

On fuelling your body:
“What you eat has a huge impact on your health. With so many diet trends and opinion on what we should or shouldn’t be eating, knowing what to eat for your health has become quite a confusing topic. My number one tip is to listen to your body! This is key in learning what works best for you or not and particularly understanding what foods make your body thrive. Your body is constantly communicating by providing you with feedback, and by tuning in you can begin to develop a relationship with your body where you match your diet to your body’s unique needs and health goals.
When it comes to listening to your body for health, this is one of my favourite quotes - "if you listen to when your body whispers, you won’t have to hear it scream."
