Today’s Guest, Dr. Nina M. Gray

1. Your name, title, and age? What do you do for a living?

Dr. Nina M. Gray, DMD, I am a Dentist. I’m 38.

2. Who was the person that inspired you as a child to eat healthy and stay fit? What was their relationship to you?

Dr. Mohsen Moghaddam, my father.

3. What did they do to inspire you?

He inspired me by showing me to live a healthy lifestyle via moderation. It is important to enjoy everything in life in small doses, drink a glass a red wine a day, have fruits, vegetables, but don’t forget to also enjoy a piece of cake once in a while.
Have a nice cup of coffee in the morning, but don’t turn it into 5 cups. Also, exercise in moderation, eat in moderation, and sleep well every night (at least 8-9 hours a night). Last, but certainly not least. His favorite saying to me is “Don’t worry about anything in life, just be happy, life is too short to not enjoy.”

4. How did their lesson change your life?

My father’s lesson has taught me to live well! After getting a full night’s sleep, I enjoy the my delicious cup of coffee in the morning and head to work around 10 am. I get to my office, and try to enjoy my work with a smile every day, even on the tough days.

I eat well and enjoy every type of food, the good, the bad, and sometimes even the not so healthy cheeseburger and fries every so often. When I leave the office, I leave my work and my day back in the office and enjoy my evening with my loved ones.

I do not have a single wrinkle on my face and have never had to resort to Botox or other treatments. As my father always says, smile more and your wrinkles will wipe away, frown and they will stay forever!

Yes indeed!

My message would be to be happy! Eat well and live well! Enjoy a little bit of everything in life and make sure you try something new at least once a month. Be fearless in life! Remember what makes you happy and make sure you do that over and over again.
