Alex Shearer's Health Coach Journey

Alex Shearer's Health Coach Journey

Introducing Alex Shearer - certified health coach and wellness content creator. We're so excited to have her as a part of our Re-Active community. Read below to get to know Alex's wellness tips and the start of her health coach journey. 

 

1. Describe your journey as a health coach. How did you get into this space?
I have loved health and wellness for as long as I can remember. Growing up I was always doing my own research and educating friends and family on healthy lifestyle practices. I always knew I wanted to do something surrounding health, but wasn't sure what. My university didn't have a nutrition program, so I went into psychology. It was during my studies there that I realized the real connection between the mind and body. After I graduated, I decided to go to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and combine my psychology and nutrition training. I am beyond happy I made that decision. It has been the best step in my career and my personal health journey. 
 
2. What is your favorite type of movement right now? 
 Lagree! I am obsessed with Lagree style pilates. I've been doing it for nearly 8 years. It makes me feel strong, toned, and confident.
 
3. What is your go to tip for a successful morning? How do you give yourself grace when you've had a not so great start? 
Establish a routine. It doesn't have to be 2 hours long and 27 steps. It can be 3-5 minutes of stretching or as simple as getting some sunlight on your face. But creating a morning practice, no matter what it is, sets the tone for the day. I wish my routine was perfect every day, but let's be honest, it's not. If I haven't had a great start I take a moment to step back, take some deep breaths and say some kind words to myself.
 
4. What has been your biggest takeaway about wellness after becoming a health coach?
 Every body is different. We are all uniquely created and what works for my body doesn't necessarily work for my clients. 
 
5. Would you like to shout out any brands that have made your morning extra special lately? (optional)
 - A Clevr Blends adaptogenic latte
- Four Sigmatic lion's mane coffee
