Author Adita Lang is handing out superpowers.
Adita Lang is the newest author to become a contributor to Healthy Living. The daughter of two medical doctors, Adita began her career at age 16 as a fitness instructor and is still going strong. She is known worldwide for her work with biomechanics and resistance training. She also is known as a nutritional guru, a mind/body serenity coach, and an advocate for women.
Her book, “SuperPowers: The Busy Woman’s Guide to Health & Happiness,” has a growing audience and includes information on how to gain those “superpowers.”
“I wrote the book because of my life experiences. I’ve been in the health and wellness industry for over 30 years. I used to get a little annoyed with my clients for coming in with stains on their shirts and not finishing a workout,” Adita says. “I didn’t understand why until I had my two kids. With that, I started to recognize that my own flame was dwindling, and I didn’t enjoy that at all.”
Adita says she began to fine-tune her exercise, food, sleep habits, and happiness.
“These are the four components of health. I’d put in these little pieces throughout my day, and all of a sudden, I started feeling better,” she adds. “Other moms were saying, ‘I want some of that, too.’ So, I shared, and we started seamlessly adding little habits to supercharge your day and that’s where superpowers come in.”
The book is animated, colorful, and simple to read, as Adita wanted. There are worksheets to fill in and recipes included. When you’re finished, Adita says you have your own instruction manual.
“What works for me may not work for you,” she says. “I don’t tell people what to do. I teach them about essentials so they can maneuver their own plan to work for them.”
Exercise, as Adita sees it, is part of everything you do during the day.
“A recent study from the American College of Sports Medicine says all you need is 150-300 minutes of activity a week,” Adita says. “Activity is defined as something that raises your heart rate and makes you break out into a sweat.”
While women have a tendency to care for others, she cautions them not to neglect their own health and well-being.
