- If you’re planning to start exercising, just start.
- Create a doable exercise plan that you can easily stick. Start adding five minutes of movement per day, whether it’s walking, stretching, among others.
- Keep saying to yourself that you’re more than your body, but that does not mean that you should not take care of it.
- If you move to achieve a specific look, you’re most likely going to set yourself up for failure.
- You have to know something so well to be able to break it down so simply.
- Movement is so fun, and it should be so creative.
- Start taking care of yourself this new year.
“When it comes to the human body, it’s so advanced like it’s literally a miracle that we’re never gonna fully understand, so we can always spend time arguing and breaking down and learning more and I love that side of things.” – Kaisa [5:27]
“Health is a feeling. It is not a look. Being healthy does not look a specific way. It’s very different for every single human being.” – Kaisa [11:01]
“It would be foolish to say that we’re not human beings who care about what we look like. You have to be able to take that and put more power over other things.” – Kaisa [19:14]
