Be Well-Be Beautiful

A long time ago – twenty years or so – I realized that the best way to look your best and keep them guessing how old you really are is to focus more on making healthful decisions than on beauty tricks and getaway-with-anything glamour.  The fact is, simple things like drinking good water, not consuming or smoking harmful things, and eating more raw foods promotes glowing, youthful skin faster than the best face cream in the world.

One thing about knowing what is right and wrong with your health is that you are accountable for your knowledge…that means you should act on what you know; well, hopefully you do.  Of course, it’s always easier said than done whenever you are talking about eating better, keeping up with an effective fitness program, and breaking addictive behavior.  I can’t tell you how many women I’ve met who either sell health products or are in the fitness industry and have the same issues with making good choices for their bodies.  Who knew?

The Compromise

There’s women out there – and you probably know one or two – who sell health or beauty products, use them, and deeply believe in their benefits and yet they damage their own bodies with addictions to alcohol, cigarettes, or worse…I don’t understand this dichotomy.  I say to you, rethink your position and make some changes.  Even if you aren’t out there peddling a stellar product, you can stand to improve in this area as well.  Hey, I’m talking to myself here, too.

Where Am I?

Take a few moments to analyze your  state of health.  In what areas can you improve?  What obvious health-stealers can I remove from my life?  Write down your questions and answers; be realistic with what you think you can change; and set some goals.  You will be surprised at how much you accomplish in a short time – and how much better you feel. 

Health Is Beauty

Truthfully, a natural glow will return to your skin, an extra spring will pop in our step, and a feeling of overall well-being will be your lot if you just back up, do the basics that are obviously healthy, and stop laboring to cover up bad habits with make-up, expensive creams, and over-tanning.  Hey, nobody is perfect, but you can make better choices – this really is a motto to live by.  Let us know how you are doing with any new goal.  Please share your ideas and challenges with WLL as we need your input.  Be well – be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

  1. You are right, Kellie!
    There is nothing more beautiful than a radiant, genuine smile (no perfect teeth required); skin glowing with the health of eating healthy fats and antioxidants; and eyes bright with the spark of life and reflective of a clear conscience.
    Feeling strong and healthy and alive and kind and generous brings about tremendous beauty! It is also contagious.

    • Yes, it’s true, but unfortunately, it’s also a hard thing for women to understand. With all the quick fixes out there, many think there is no reason to do real “work” for beauty. My goal right now is to focus on my health, not my beauty. The thing is I know that my looks will be boosted by any effort I put forth in the other area. The two are inseparable!
