Kimberly Snyder’s 5 Pro Tips on Happy, Healthy Living
The nutritionist to the stars shares how to discover a new sense of wellbeing, and how to actually keep that New Year’s Resolution.
January is a time for fresh starts and positive thinking, when we all see a clean slate and determine to be better to ourselves—and to others. “The New Year always feels like this incredible juncture filled with the ripeness of unlimited possibilities,” says wellness expert Kimberly Snyder. After graduating from Georgetown, she spent three years traveling solo to 50 countries, picking up a global roster of health and beauty tips. Snyder later received a nursing degree, and has since become a leading nutritionist—with A-list clients such as Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington—and a New York Times best-selling author of The Beauty Detox series and Radical Beauty, with Deepak Chopra. “New Year’s resolutions often seem to be about creating a ‘new’ outer shell of yourself. Losing weight is a primary one for many,” she says. “And while there is, of course, nothing wrong with that per se, it’s also a great idea to reflect on how you can be more authentic to yourself, and be clear on your focus for the year ahead. Spend some time journaling, going for a walk alone in silence, or just sit with the question, What do you need this year, truly?”
Here are her five recommendations for how to live a healthier, happier life.
