Celebrity Fitness Trainer Gwen Lawrence: Tips On Living a Healthy Lifestyle

Sheryl's Health Scare
Singer Sheryl Crow reveals she has a benign brain tumor.
Gwen Lawrence is the instructor for five New York pro teams, including the New York Giants. She has several online yoga classes on GaiamTV.com.

A few days ago, singer Sheryl Crow was walloped with yet another obstacle. The brave and resilient songstress and mother was recently diagnosed with a benign brain tumor called meningioma. Sheryl thanked her fans for their unyielding support, and said she feels fine and healthy.

She has been a long-time advocate of living a healthy lifestyle and has been an inspiration to many for overcoming past hurdles.

Want to stay as healthy and strong as possible? Here are a few simple things you can integrate into your life:

  • Eat organic whenever possible
  • Take 5 toxins out of your daily life; use natural body creams, natural soaps and shampoos, for example
  • Eat a diet that encourages a less acidic body; disease thrives on acidity
  • Take time for daily meditation

You’ve got only one lifelong job and it’s the most important one of all: Committing to a healthy lifestyle. For your family, your kids and yourself, you owe it to them – and you – to do the research and make each day better than the previous.

It’s simple: just start with the 4 tips above. For even more inspiration, check out these titles on GaiamTV.com, like:
