“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.”
Aloha! My name is Holly Harding, AADP, INHC and I am a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach, Food for Beauty Expert and innovator of The H Lyfe Method®!
I live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii where I love living a healthy, ocean lifestyle. Through my proprietary online program THE H LYFE METHOD® I help clients all over the world in achieving their health goals.
A little more about me…….I originally studied classical music from an early age and went off to music school in New York at the age of 17. After finishing my schooling at Boston University and working as a classical musician in Boston, I began my first entrepreneurial adventure at the age of 22 by opening Musically Speaking Entertainment, a music entertainment agency, where I booked out myself and other musicians for concerts and events. During this time, I also maintained a career in corporate marketing. At the age of 24, I moved to Hawaii and eventually started Bubble Shack Hawaii, a natural bath, body and candle company.
“A golden cage is still just a cage.”
At around age 30 and about five years of pedal to the metal building Bubble Shack, I caught a reflection of myself in a restaurant window, thinking it was someone else. After quickly realizing the person I was seeing was indeed myself, I had a 10 second meltdown and right then and there, in that moment, I made the decision that things had to change. No more running myself into the ground, no more eating every meal on the go and no more filling my schedule so far to the brim that I had no room left to do things I loved or spend time with the people I loved. This dream I had of building my business was somehow trapping me into a life I had begun to dislike because all of the other components no longer mattered. But suddenly they did.
“I love nutrient rich food and believe in its healing powers!”
Over the next year, I went on a quest to figure out my body (specifically my weight) and how I could organize my life in a way that could provide balance and health. After digging deep and ridding myself of old ways of thinking and eating, including admitting that emotional eating was in my equation, I was able to beat my addiction to sugar and empty carbohydrates and fill my diet with nutrient rich, primarily plant based foods, which as I discovered, were best for my specific body type. In turn, I lost 40 pounds, my skin brightened, I began to have way more energy and I was able to do the things I loved the most, like surfing and soon yoga! In the process of losing those 40 pounds my attitude changed, I felt happier, more energetic and even became more productive in my working hours because I began to have a more balanced life. Since that revelation, I was able to grow Bubble Shack to a level I was content with and then sell the company so I could further focus on my healthy lifestyle and go back to nutrition school in order to help others achieve their health and lifestyle goals. It’s an amazing feeling when you can use information you’ve implemented first hand to help others live a more fulfilling life!
