Before Long Island City resident Michelle Cady was a
health and self-care guru, she worked in the fast-paced
world of finance.
The author of "Self-Care in the City" and founder of
FitVista knew what it was like to be a high-achieving city
dweller and has made it her mission to help people take
control of all aspects of their well being.
Cady released her inaugural book earlier this year
to teach people how to take care of themselves while
living in an urban environment like New York City. She
drew from her personal experience of living in the city
for work, in addition to the stress-related symptoms,
like adrenal fatigue, infertility issues and trouble taking
deep breaths, that she suffered from as a result of her
"The noise in New York City and the stress, it's so dif-ferent
than our natural environment like mountains and
hills. That's what I really enjoyed thinking about, doing
the research and reminding people that it's not easy to
live here," Cady said.
