Health Tips and Words to Live by From 10 Wellness Influencers

That’s right: You’ve finally got the best tips all in one place. We scoured countless websites, magazines, and interviews to curate this list of nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, and sleep hacks from the industry’s most well-known female health influencers, like celebrity nutritionist Kelly LeVeque and self-love and sexuality guru Carly Morgan Gross. Next time you need some inspiration, turn to this list for ways to feel your best and live your healthiest life.


Kelly tells Healthline: “If you were my client tomorrow, I’d ask you, ‘How many hours of sleep did you get last night?’ And I ask this question to every client, whether they’re getting ready to walk the red carpet for an award show, preparing for a movie role as a superhero, or simply trying to lose the last of their baby weight. Consistent sleep is integral to my clients’ success in hitting their goals — every time!”

Laura Lea Bryant - Holistic Chef and Cookbook Author

Laura Lea tells Shape: “Fat, fiber, and protein: Make sure this trifecta appears in your meals to keep your blood sugar balanced and your stomach satiated, so you don't continue to overeat.”

Carly Morgan Gross - Holistic Nutritionist

Carly tells Vidya Living: “Stress and fear hurt the body, the digestion, and the heart more than a BigMac from McDonalds.”

Lauren Cohen - Yoga Instructor

Lauren tells Siren Snacks: “The moment I wake up, I drink hot water with lemon. Waking up with warm water is something that makes my whole body feel good.”

Jordan Younger - Health Author and Blogger

Jordan tells The Skinny Confidential: “Exercise is a huge component in leading a healthy lifestyle. You can’t just eat healthy without exercising and expect to live a healthy life, and you can’t just exercise without eating well either. They are the yin and yang of health. My best advice when it comes to exercise is to find the type of exercise that you love so that you will be consistent with it. Our exercise is our play time, our me-time.”

Melody Magsaysay - Pilates Instructor

Melody tells Siren Snacks: “I have a sweet tooth, too! I enjoy snacking on dried mango or coconut date rolls, which are made from coconuts, dates, and walnuts, when I have a craving. If my body wants it—I let it have it.”

Arianna Huffington - Founder and CEO of Thrive Global

Ariana tells CNBC: "Take a colleague and go to a cafeteria or go to a table away from your desk in your office and have lunch. Even if you take 20 minutes to do that, it's more recharging than what so many of us do which is eating lunch while working. It just makes a difference to how the rest of your day goes.”


Simone tells Women’s Health: “Pre-workout I love drinking Core Power; it's a recovery drink. And then a banana and peanut butter because bananas have potassium, which helps with muscle cramps. And then afterwards, I like having a good fish, like salmon, and rice and carrots.”

Tosca Reno - Author & Founder of the Eat-Clean Diet

Tosca tells Siren Snacks: “I have the things I need to perform my health rituals close at hand—my journal, a pen, a spiritual book, a water bottle filled with water, or my meditation CD. Whatever you need to make your ritual real, have it there on your nightstand. Put whatever isn’t a part of your routine or that isn’t serving you farther away.”

Kayla Itsines - Personal Trainer, Author, and Entrepreneur

Kayla tells Marie Claire: “If you say to yourself, ‘Oh, I want to look like her,’ that will never happen. You want to look like the best version of you. Set yourself small, achievable goals like, ‘I want to be able to squat for longer.’ I do a lot of box jumps with clients and they always start out saying, ‘I will never be able to jump on that box,’ but then a few weeks later they do it.”

One last tip (this time from us): If you’re like us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or perhaps even motivated to make a bunch of changes at once after scrolling through so much great advice from wellness experts. But there’s no need incorporate all of these philosophies or suggestions at once (or any at all, for that matter — you’re the ultimate expert in you). Creating lasting, sustainable habits takes time. Identify one or two tips that really resonate with you to try out this upcoming week. From there, you can slowly add more over time if you’d like.
