My 2020 Growth Story
Thank you for allowing me to take the stage last night along with so many amazing women. It was an absolute honor.
I was overwhelmed with emotions last night as Stacy Cassio announced that my story received the most votes for Pink Mentor Network's 2020 Growth Stories, which also meant that the voters really resonated with my story.
Honestly, I was super nervous and probably rushed so I wouldn't be choked up and cry. Many of you asked for what I shared afterwards since it was pretty difficult to take notes - if you don't know some of the Ayurvedic terms, it probably didn't help that I talked so fast - which is why I'm writing this blog for you to reference in the upcoming months. And yes, you can absolutely share with whomever needs to hear my story.
I truly hope what I'm sharing will help you and anyone you know end 2020 with some resilience, joy, patience, and kindness to yourself.
Expert Interview - Lose the Quarantine 15
2020 has been a lot of things... tough, sad, stressful, weird, and challenging are things to come to mind. Businesses have failed, and people have gotten sick, lost jobs, or lost loved ones.
With all of the stress and uncertainty that has come with this year, many of us have packed on the Quarantine 15 (or more)! If this is you, don't fret. There are safe, healthy ways to get these extra pounds off.
We had the opportunity to interview Rhya Pachin, one of the experts in functional nutrition here in Charlotte. You may remember her from earlier in the year when she talked with us about the gut microbiome and the importance of using food and nutrition to heal the body.
Today, she is going to talk to us more about that pesky "Quarantine 15" and how we can make a few simple lifestyle changes to get that off, and keep it off.
Featured Expert - Multi-faceted Unicorn and Coach on Self-Love
It's almost Valentine's Day❣ Whether you have a bae/hunny or not in your life, every single woman deserves self-love and self-care.
Love doesn't always have to come from other people. In fact, it is so important to love yourself. As women, we wear so many hats in this modern day, and sometimes we forget about our own needs because we are so busy taking care of other people - at work, at home, anywhere really.
This interview of Chrystal Rose is about self-love that impacts the mind, body, and spirit. I'm going to be completely honest - this is something that I am 100% still struggling with. I've been bullied and shamed all of my life, a lot of times by the people whom I thought loved me and was closest to me, so this topic is absolutely important to me. Sometimes people don't realize that words really hurt, and they truly don't realize how those words can impact others' self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love.
Chrystal owns Rebellia, the Rebel Babe Cave podcast, and Mental Message. She is also a nutritional coach and is currently working on obtaining a certification in life coaching that focuses on body image and disordered eating from a holistic approach. Chrystal is extremely passionate at what she does and wants to make an impact on women's lives - centering around changing the mindset, achieving sustainability (instead of trying yo-yo diets), and working towards balance.
