“Wellness” is a trendy term right now.
When people hear the word “wellness”, sometimes they think of Gwyneth Paltrow, weird diets, silence retreats, and things that just quite vibe right with them.
I’m here to tell you – wellness is for everyone.
And the kicker is, wellness doesn’t look the SAME for everyone.
The definition of wellness is: the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
So, I want you to exhale out the all the preconceived notions of what you THINK wellness is. And I want you to think about the things that make you feel good and healthy. Is it curling up with a good book? Is it going for a run? Is it making a good cup of coffee in the morning and planning out your day?
Now, I want you to think about a goal that you have.
Make it personal.
Make it something that you are going to relentlessly pursue.
Now, we put the pieces together – how are you going to take care of yourself so you can go and achieve that goal? You can’t be the best version of yourself on 0 hours of sleep – so find something that will help you sleep better. Make sure you carve out enough time to replenish yourself – you’ll be pouring so much out, that you don’t want to risk running on empty.
What do I do? I have started a daily meditation practice, where I listen to a positive mantra and focus on my breath. Throughout the day, I’ll make myself a cup of coffee (in the mornings) or a cup of team to re-center myself when things start to get crazy. And of course, I love to sweat. Whether it’s a Cross Fit workout, Rowing workout, at home workout, or yoga practice – I try to sweat for at least 20 minutes every day. It’s time when I can silence my mind, and nothing else matters.
It’s time for me myself and I.
And I’m SO excited that next week I’m going to be heading to WELL Summit – a 2 day long wellness summit. I cannot wait to learn from people from ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, and meet people who value time with themselves as much as they value time with others.
Are you going to WELL Summit? I’d LOVE to meet ya?

There are 99 days left in 2018, let’s make them our healthiest and happiest yet. And don’t forget, wellness is for everyone – including YOU. I can’t wait to soak it all up – everything from clean beauty, mental wellness, and physical health. I just plan to be a big sponge and I cannot cannot WAIT for this.
