Today, I want to talk to you about Live the Whole, which is a wellness blog that teaches you new ways to be healthy. Samantha Russell is the writer of this blog, and we have gotten to know each other over the past couple of weeks. She is currently in training to become an Eating Psychology Coach. Read more about what that is and about Samantha here. Sam posts once a week, and her writing is authentic and well researched. She definitely knows what she's talking about.
One thing that I absolutely love about Sam is that she doesn't just post diets or exercises, but takes on a more personal approach. Her goal is to make you feel better about yourself so that you can make the right choices. She doesn't post pictures of tiny women or men with huge muscles. Instead, she encourages positivity. This approach to health is a lot more relaxing, and I personally feel better about myself after reading her work.
Another thing I love about her blog is that she talks about a wide range of topics. You'll never get bored reading Sam's blog, because every week is dedicated to a different topic. I have read articles about everything from eggs, to health apps, to reducing anxiety. All her posts are connected by her niche, but still somehow show spontaneity.
This week's post on Live the Whole is about how to deal with anxiety. This is something that I personally struggle with. I have had horrible anxiety my entire life, and I must say that Sam's methods are excellent. Her post begins with an explanation of anxiety and some of its symptoms. This can be really helpful because not everyone recognizes that they have anxiety right away. Being able to notice the signs is an excellent start to getting rid of them. She then continues with 7 suggestions that can help ease anxiety. Read 7 Tried, True, Tested Ways to be Gentle with you Anxiety. You will be glad you did!
