Christy said: "As someone who loves an active outdoor lifestyle, living with an autoimmune disease presents many challenges. I view it as a blessing in disguise and use my illness as a daily reminder of how fragile and precious our health can be. Sometimes our health is impacted by our own choices, and sometimes it’s just the hand we have been dealt. Either way, our daily choices can make our lifestyle, our lives, and the lives of people around us so much better if we choose to pursue better health every day.
On any given day, we all feel overwhelmed by our busy schedules; family, work and community commitments; filling up our day to the point where neglecting our needs can happen unintentionally. The one thing that living with a chronic illness supplies me with is the knowledge of the necessity of prioritizing my health and life balance over all else FIRST. It’s a small lesson that can serve everyone; take care of your health to be able to give that energy back to others.
To support my active lifestyle, I choose to put healthy eating, exercise and rest at the top of my priority list because it’s not a choice for me. If I don’t make the right daily decisions, I pay for it, which trickles down to the ones I love. I desire to thrive and to help those around me do the same. Mocu products give me support and fill in nutritional gaps in my daily diet. The importance of pure and clean nutrition is underappreciated and something we can all improve to get more oomph for life in motion. I am thankful to be a Mocu Motivator, a group of movers and shakers who look to buck convention and achieve their own goals while balancing busy lives. Mocu products are great tasting and useful in helping sustain my health challenges and pursue my active lifestyle."
