Andrea Saliba is a powerhouse. We met online, as she leads a busy and beautiful life in Vancouver BC. As many of you know, I struggled for many years with an eating disorder, depression and anxiety, and I am so inspired by people like Andrea who aim to encourage others to lead the healthiest life possible both mentally and physically.
Mother to three beautiful kids and a boss-babe running her own nutrition and health coaching business, you got to check this chick out ;)

2. What is your morning routine to tap into your ideal mindset?
- Every morning, I wake up at 5:30am before anyone else and I meditate for 10-15 min. I focus on what I am grateful for, how I want my day to go and on my future goals.
It really has been life changing for me and something I tell all my clients to do also.
