About

Welcome to Living like Leila, where it is my goal to motivate you to become the best version of YOU by taking control of your life.

Personal development is simple, but it’s definitely not easy.

I truly believe that progress = happiness, so what does it mean if you aren’t making progress?

You may feel a sense of disappointment.

You may feel unmotivated and lazy.

You’re probably frustrated that you keep trying, yet fail to be consistent.

Trust me, I’ve been there.

I didn’t understand why I wouldn’t follow through on the things I would say I would do. It never felt like there was enough time. I thought maybe it wasn’t meant for me.

Until I realized I must take complete control.

Improving yourself is uncomfortable, but that is how you grow.

If you really want something in your life, it can be yours. Whether that is a healthy mind and body, financial freedom, or an amazing relationship, you can have it.

It’s time to move out of your own way and reach for your full potential by focusing on your health, removing negativity and excuses from your life, and working toward what you actually want.

Through my blog, I share content with you in hopes of improving your life.

However, I can’t force you to take action!

I try to be as transparent as possible when it comes to my own journey with becoming debt free and constantly improving myself. The journey is never-ending after all!

If you want more tips, inspiration, and exclusive content, I highly suggest you sign up for my newsletter.

A little bit about me

I am 25 years old and currently a microbiologist.

When I’m not at work you can find me lifting weights, blogging, filming Youtube videos, meal prepping, meditating, or reading.

I have a few big goals that I constantly work towards: get out of debt, become a full-time blogger/Youtuber, move to California, travel A TON, become financially free to do and give as I please, “retire” early, inspire others to become vegan and improve themselves! πŸ™‚

  4. I really enjoyed read your blog during sipping on my coffee in the morning. I do make time for the thing I enjoy and multitask. I have one problem I’m scared to start a blog. It like I have ideas but what if no one will like what I write. And I would also want to make YouTube videos but then I think about all the little details to make the video look presentable. All of what you wrote is like half of my schedule but I want to build more courage. Thank you for message and showing that there is people that have busy schedule with doing what they like to do . I have a 9-5 , a 11 year old, living boyfriend and well me . A lot goes on in a day.

    1. Rose,

      Thank you so much for reading my blog πŸ™‚

      If something scares you, that’s your sign to do it πŸ™‚ Start a blog! Start a YouTube! The key is just starting and staying consistent. It doesn’t have to be perfect, trust me. I’ve been blogging for 4 years and I only JUST NOW (in the last 2 months or so) started gaining a lot of traffic. I wanted to quit so many times but if you really want to do it you’ll stick with it! It doesn’t matter if no one reads/watches at first, just keep going.

      Just give it a shot πŸ™‚

  7. This article really opened my eyes. I make tons of excuses, and I realize its not healthy. I need to work out, I need to prioritize me, and other things and people. I need HELP!!

    1. Don’t beat yourself up!! It took you awhile to develop bad habits, so it will take longer to develop positive habits! Take it one day at a time, do at least one little thing each day to improve yourself and things will get easier as time goes😊

  8. I have started blogging recently. Time management is something we all need to learn. Read one of your blogs which was about the time management. You are incredible. Keep up the good work. You are inspiring. I pray you achieve everything in life. Best wishes.
