Senya’s Healthy Habits
after turning 50 in June, I began thinking about life in ways I had never thought before. Staying physically fit and mentally strong weighs more on my mind. I now have an increased interest in finding natural ways to incorporate healthy habits and giving my family the best opportunity possible to sustain good health, energy, and focus. You could say my curiosity is now at its peak. I invite you to join me in a health journey that comes at a time when our own health has been thrown into question each day as we deal with the changing world.
“Nutrition is an essential part of the performing artists toolbox for success!”
I have been teaching piano and voice for 27 years. Working closely with others, I’ve always been fascinated by how health and nutrition can positively or negatively affect my students’ mindset, outlook, attitude, perspective, and ability to learn. I notice that my performing artists have their own set of concerns; the desire to look and feel great inside and out is a necessity for their overall marketing package. Aspirations of a healthy glow from skin, hair, physical stamina, and mental clarity are constantly sought after by those who love the stage. Nutrition is an essential part of the performing artists toolbox for success!
Is it possible to give students a better chance at optimizing memory and attention, staying focused, and supporting brain health? And how will that affect their self-confidence, self-image, self-esteem, and self-respect?
After many failed attempts over the years, I have found a program that works for me. I want to continue be curious and ask questions as I seek out new health programs, vitamins, supplements, fitness, and even mental health ideas by talking to experts in their field to showcase all of what is available to us. I have been persistent in seeking information on how to increase my own energy and focus as well as that of my family and students. I have been known to be that person always searching for ways to give myself, my husband, and three children a nutritional advantage to reach goals in whatever endeavors we choose to pursue. Having a daughter who is a competitive dancer and two teenage boys who play football and train hard in the gym and on the field, I have always made it a priority to provide them with the nutritional support they need to meet their goals.

I invite you to join me on social media as I fact-find and provide information that will benefit you and your family. We all want to be as healthy as possible, let’s explore the best ways to do that and take responsibility and ownership of our future.
