Hi. I’m Sonja. I am a nurse. I am a positive thinker and a pretty active person. In my mind, I consider myself a bit of a hippie: someone free, relaxed, colorful, and all natural – oh and I hate socks and pants (I prefer skirts, I’m not a nudist!). I call myself the Healthier Hippie because I strive to become healthy in all senses of the word: in what I put in my body, how I move my body, how I treat myself and my mind, and how I treat others. The thing is, that isn’t easy and I can be a bit too “relaxed” (ahgm – lazy) at times.. So this little blog is a little bit health, a little bit 80/20 how to get the most out of life without the extra pressure of IG and Pinterest and the girls in sports bras running past your house every morning.  Everybody’s journey for health, be it physical, social, psychological or spiritual, is different. I hope to pass along some tips I have learned along the way. I love learning more about being the healthiest version of me so that, as I grow older, I will continue to have a full quality life and set a good example for my children. I am by no means an expert on the subject but a lot of people tell me they would love to be healthy like me, so I’d love to share with you my relaxed tips on living my best life and hopefully yours too!  Join me, update me, follow me on Instagram. Whatever it takes to be accountable for your own life, do it!
