The book is written is such an entertaining, easy to read way and Kemi’s warmth and energy shine through on every page. Pop it on your Christmas list and buy it for a friend who needs some more self loving! Let’s hear what Kemi has to say:
To Kemi to be well means: to put myself on my own to do list daily.
I have many jobs. I would not say what I do is a job. It is my passion and my purpose. Everyday is different. I do the same sorts of things on the same day each week. For example I coach 2 days a week, write one day a week etc.
Something I’m really excited about at the moment is launching my book Raw Beauty – The 7 principles to nourish your body, transform your mind and create the life you want. The feedback from women is very exciting. There is now a new conversation about beauty and many, many women are getting on board.
Commitment is easy for me when it comes to managing my wellbeing. I really dislike feeling sluggish, de-energised and foggy.
Road trips are usually hard for me when it comes to managing my wellbeing. I always stock up, but never want what I have packed when it comes to eating it.
2 organic raw juice cleanses (7-14 days) a year in Spring and Autumn brings my wellbeing back on track twice a year.
I usually sleep 6-8 hours per night. I’d like to sleep 7-8 hours per night.
Something I’ve found that really helps when it comes to my health, fitness and wellbeing is never leaving my food choices to hotels. I have a great mobile breakfast I have created over the years and travel with the ingredients I need and then buy fruit from the nearest shop. I always take my runners or my yoga mat when I travel for work or holiday.
Something I’ve learnt over the years when it comes to health, fitness and wellbeing is I am responsible, no one else.
The advice I would give to someone half my age when it comes to looking after their body is “You are responsible, no one else“.
The problem with being too obsessive and trying to be a perfectionist when it comes to your health and wellbeing is that it brings no joy, which is not wellbeing.
If my body stopped working my ability to do my work would be – if I cannot move my body 5-6 days a week I am not a very nice person! I would worry more for my family than my work!
If my body could talk right now the loudest thing that it would say / ask for is a long hot bath. Mmmm
