We are so thrilled to welcome Kavisha to the Twosixmag Community! Here’s a little about Kavishsa’s journey to wellness and how she dedicates her time to helping others achieve a healthy balanced life.
Can you tell us a little about you and your journey towards health and wellness?
Believe it or not I was not always a kale loving wellness chick. In fact, I was the complete opposite. From childhood up until my early 20’s my diet consisted of fast food (nearly every day), soft drink, plenty of sugary treats, and then a lot of coffee and alcohol (in my first years of uni!)
It wasn’t until my early twenties, when I wasn’t happy with my body that I really began to take control of my health. Studying my Masters in Wellness through RMIT allowed me to completely change the state of my mind and my body. Today I feel like a totally different person, and am the healthiest I have ever been. Nowadays I don’t really drink or stay out late. Occasionally it’s fun, but I’m a morning person so staying out all night doesn’t work for me! I guess you could say that my focus is not quite the same as when I was eighteen years old. My passion is living a healthy lifestyle.
Your site highlights the importance of having a healthy relationship with food. When you made changes, what did you notice about your relationship with your body and mind?
When you change what you put into your mouth your whole world changes. I’ve definitely noticed a change in my body and mind for the better. I strongly believe we should eat out of love (a love of eating amazing tasting fresh food and a love for ourselves and our bodies) rather than out of fear (fear of being fat). Everything should be eaten in balance, and no crazy obsessions. Just relax and listen to your body. If you obsess too much about what you can and cannot eat, you become mentally drained and unwell. So what if you unexpectedly over-indulge on the weekend. The next day just get straight back on the health trail! The truth is your diet should be constantly evolving; you should be learning and trying new things all the time.
A day in the life of Kavisha Jega…
Wake up around 7, drink a greens drink (green powder mixed with water) + probiotic + fish oil. Sip on warm water with lemon while checking emails etc, then some sort of exercise (activity and length varies depending on the day). Sometimes I’ll head out and meet a friend for brunch after or have a brunch business meeting. During the day I’m usually working from home either researching and writing articles, working on one of my many upcoming projects or may be in the kitchen trailing new recipes! I stop work by 6pm. At night I can be found doing anything from relaxing and reading to going out for dinner.
What is your perfect meal & setting?
Healthy food, cold pressed juice, raw desserts, picnic, grass, sunshine, friends.
