Happy Healthy You Is Encouraging All Women to Love Themselves
This February, Australian-based lifestyle company, Happy Healthy You is encouraging all women to love themselves and to be their own Valentine.
Challenging the status quo that 'loving yourself' involves over-indulgence, the lifestyle company, founded by triple-Olympian Lisa Curry and Naturopath, Jeff Butterworth, is encouraging women to redefine what it means to 'treat yourself', and to understand that they are their own 'special someone'.
"The relationship you have with yourself is one of the most important relationships you will have in your life and it's vital to put yourself first, especially when it comes to your health and wellness goals," said Mr Butterworth.
"There are so many different elements to learning to love yourself, and as part of the Happy Healthy You community we encourage women to take the first step by completing our free online assessment, which will help them better understand their hormones, their body, how it functions and what it actually needs."
By creating wellness goals and focusing on long-term lifestyle and diet habits, you are able to understand and appreciate your body, and take better care of it for a happier and healthier life," Mr Butterworth said.
Holistic Lifestyle Coach and Happy Healthy You Chef, Rachel Enright, encourages women to educate themselves on what food is best for their bodies and understand why these foods play an important role in the health and wellbeing of your body.
"We all love a sweet treat, and Valentine's Day has a huge focus on 'treating yourself' to chocolate and alcohol, but food doesn't have to be unhealthy to be delicious. So, why not create a nutritious meal or snack that not only tastes amazing but makes you feel amazing?" Ms Enright said.
"We have helped hundreds of Australian women start their journey to self-love through a healthier diet and approach to life through our simple, nutritious and delicious recipes and plans that can be personalised to you, following your online assessment results."
"Happy Healthy You offers a range of different recipes that are balanced and perfectly-sized to 'treat yourself' to. It's also a great way to work on your relationship with yourself and learn more about what role health and nutrients play in your overall wellbeing," said Ms Enright.
Happy Healthy You provides natural alternatives to hormonal treatments, nutritious recipes, and educates and supports women in nourishing their bodies. Join our community on Facebook today and find out more on all our tips and tricks for living a healthy lifestyle, with a supportive group of women.

This Valentine's season, Happy Healthy You is encouraging all women to love themselves and emphasising the importance of showing yourself love by nourishing your body and nurturing your health through education and understanding.
Interview with Lisa Curry
Question: What is Happy Healthy You?
Lisa Curry: Happy Healthy You is a lifestyle portal that I co-founded with naturopath and hormonal specialist, Jeff Butterworth who has more than 20 years' experience specialising in the treatment of hormonal disorders. Through Happy Healthy You, we've been able to open up access to naturopaths, wellness coaches and healthy recipes to empower women to take charge of their mental and physical health naturally.
Before we started Happy Healthy You, there were times when I was feeling tired, moody and cranky. That was happening every month and it wasn't until I met Jeff that I realised it was a hormonal imbalance.
At Happy Healthy You, we encourage women to create a wellness lifestyle rather than focus too much on diet, and to understand and see their hormone results adjust over a period of time. It's all about helping women change small and sustainable lifestyle habits until they are happy with their results and are able to maintain and manage these changes.
We also offer support, education and up to date information for women living with hormonal conditions in a safe, secure environment through our online private group pages. Currently we have around 200,000 women caring, sharing and learning from each other, and knowing that they are not alone.
Question: Can you tell us about the initial online assessment on Happy Healthy You?
Lisa Curry: We've created a free online assessment made up of a number of questions, which help to tailor a unique hormonal profile for every person who answers the questions. Based on answers, a personalised profile is created, with unique details that are designed to aid in personal weight management, health maintenance and optimised ageing.
We developed the online assessment tool with the aim being to help women understand the role hormones play in their overall health and health goals. Knowing your goals makes creating a wellness cycle easier to do, and soon, healthier solutions will start to unfold in front of you. And with this comes step by step improvements in your wellbeing, motivation and happiness.
The results you get are fabulous, so it's really worth filling in.

Question: What message does Happy Healthy You hope to spread, this February?
Lisa Curry: This month, being the month of love, Happy Healthy You is encouraging all women to love themselves. When the female or mum in a family is happy, then everyone else benefits too. Remember what they say, 'Happy wife, happy life!'
The relationship you have with yourself is one of the most important relationships you will have in your life and it's vital to put you first, especially when it comes to your health and wellness goals. So many women put everyone and everything else first, and have little time left for themselves.
At Happy Healthy You, we are encouraging women to 'treat themselves', and to understand that they are their own 'someone special'.
Question: What does it mean to love yourself?
Lisa Curry: For me, loving myself means nourishing my body and nurturing my health through getting better education and understanding what I need in order to be the best version of myself. Especially now that I'm getting older, I constantly have to find what works for me, so I can make it a part of my lifestyle.
Question: How can women work on learning to love themselves?
Lisa Curry: There are so many different elements to learning to love yourself. The one which I feel is super important is not comparing yourself to others. It really serves no purpose and only gets you down, because so much pressure is put on you to be or do what someone else does. Learn to love who you are, to love what you do, and to design your life the way you want to live it. We're all different, so we need to do what is best for us and for our families.
Question: How do you treat yourself?
Lisa Curry: A real treat for me is having a couple of days off, so that I can do anything and everything that I want to do. Catching up on sleep, staying in my PJs all day, potter around, get a pedi and a massage. Ah Yes. That is the perfect day for me, and then having dinner cooked for me.
Question: Do you have a morning ritual, can you share it with us?
Lisa Curry: I wake up about 5.30am. The first thing I do is make up my health water. 1 liter of water with 1/2 squeezed lemon or lime, a teaspoon of Happy Hormones, Happy Tumeric and Happy Greens, and ACV.
After that, I go for a 15 minute walk to warm up and then I let the chooks out and feed them, along with our three ducks (Donald, Daffy and Daisy), check on the cows and horses. Then I take my health water to the gym with me, and drink it during my one-hour long workout. After my workout, I always drink a large glass of water along with taking my Happy Weight, and then half-an-hour later I have a vegetable omelette with fresh eggs from my chooks, and the day begins.
