Here at Lyfebulb we are passionate about connecting people, inspiring change, and impacting lives. As we grow, we want to be sure we stay in touch with our community on a regular basis. Therefore we are excited to share a new series on the Blog, Lyfebulb Lyfestyle, which is dedicated to the holistic lifestyle encompassing Lyfebulb’s pillars.
Every Wednesday you’ll find something new: Blog posts promoting simple but effective health tips or videos showcasing easy, delicious recipes. In either case, the goal of this new series is to inspire us all to live a healthier life and improve the quality of that life in a way that is fun and pleasurable.
Quality of life is important to Lyfebulb and it is important to me. As a Holistic Health Coach my goal is to help men and women all over the world improve their quality of life, not just through diet and exercise, but through a balanced lifestyle.
My journey began many years ago and has seen me through various dietary approaches, exercise regimens, and life phases.
It started with a relatively healthy upbringing, which had me eating whole grains and healthy fats, but also generous amounts of ice cream and Cheetos. Around the time I turned 20 I saw my body changing and realized I knew nothing about taking care of my health through food. I dove head first into the confusing world of diets: the dos and don’ts – so many restrictions! Not wanting to adhere to one of these strict plans, I did my own research and found a way of eating that kept me healthy and restored my confidence.
After college I moved to Italy where I spent some time soaking in the culture and rediscovering myself in a new setting. As one might expect, it was here that I began my love affair with food. I learned to cook, letting my taste buds guide me and discovered that quality mattered. I stopped being a picky, calculated eater and began to enjoy meals of all shapes and sizes. And I did so with gusto.
Later I moved to New York City and settled into a career working at one of the largest advertising agencies in the city. It was my dream job and I was happy with the way life was going, at least from the outside. The corporate world was wearing me down with its long hours and endless demands. My energy began to suffer as did my complexion and mood. Despite the limited time and kitchen space, I still found ways to maintain a healthy diet – though eventually it became clear to me my diet alone wasn’t the solution to living a full and healthy life. Holistic health mattered.
It was through all these experiences that I learned to get out of survival mode and into a place where my circumstances didn’t determine the fullness of my life.
My name is Alexi Morrison and I am passionate about living a full and vibrant life. I am a Holistic Health Coach in practice since 2009, and I believe that true health is achieved not just through diet and exercise, but by living a lifestyle that promotes emotional well-being, balance, and joy.
I live in downtown Manhattan with my husband and daughter and I am thrilled to be a part of the Lyfebulb team promoting health and wellness. Always operating from a holistic perspective, I count Pilates, reading and quality dark chocolate as sustenance.
Stay tuned for many new Lyfebulb Lyfestyle posts to come!
