I spent the majority of my young life stressed to the max and constantly trying to please other people. I always did what I thought I was “supposed” to do: I went to college, got a business marketing degree, and started corporate ladder climbing with my 9-5 career. I did everything that was expected of me. But there was a problem…I was MISERABLE!
My job was extremely stressful to the point where I was constantly consumed by my work. Everything in my life revolved around my career. I was spending 60+ hours a week at the office and even when I was home, work was all I could think about. My life, hobbies, relationships, and well-being all took a back seat.
After months and months of this, I started to notice that my life was no longer my own. I would spend my Monday mornings curled up on my bed with my comforter wrapped around me, dreading the week ahead. I would often find myself in tears on my way to work, stressed, overwhelmed, and EXTREMELY burnt out.
My mental stress overflowed into my physical body as well. My diet went to shit due to my constant stress eating. I gained a substantial amount of weight because I was spending my days glued to my chair, typing away at my computer for hours and hours every day. My hair fell out by the handfuls and I was sick all the time. I felt completely lost.
It wasn’t until I found yoga that everything changed for me.
I remember originally starting my practice because I thought it would help me lose weight. However, I learned rather quickly that it was so much more than just a workout. The lessons I learned on my mat were easily translated into my everyday life, and they helped me grow and become a better person. Yoga helped me overcome my crippling depression and taught me how to love myself. I even started taking better care of myself including what I choose to eat, what products I consumed, and where I focused my energy. My love for yoga continued to evolve, and I made the decision to register for Yoga Teacher Training.
I eventually left my soul-sucking corporate 9-5 marketing agency job to pursue my passion for teaching yoga and blogging full time. Since then, I have received 3 separate yoga teacher training certifications (Vinyasa, Sculpt, and Hot) and I went back to school to pursue my dream career path in holistic wellness and nutrition. I’ve gone completely vegan and am the healthiest I have ever been. Not saying that I’m perfect in any way of course, but I’ve come a long way and am continuing to grow and learn every day.
Wellness has transformed my life, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to go on this journey with you! I know that with hard work, perseverance, and a positive mindset, you can accomplish anything. My goal is that you leave my blog feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to take on the world!
