Find out more about our founder's wellness tips in our brief Q&A:
1) Where are you currently based?
2) Where can we find you?
Hiking up the Morning Trail up to The Peak, Stanley Beach stand up paddle boarding, and in Po Hing Fong walking my dog and playing fetch with him in the neighborhood.
3) What makes you smile and/or laugh?
My rescue pup, he’s a German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix, Kobe! He amuses me everyday with his playfulness and curiosity. He has so many expressions for a furry friend! My friends also make me laugh a lot, they always know how to cheer me up with their stories.
4) Where does your inspiration come from?
Nature, world events, colors, art and music.
5) What are you currently getting into?
Energy healing, raising our vibration and consciousness, and learning about so many different modalities to heal ourselves from within.
6) Your mantra:
"Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself." - Rumi
7) Any wellness tips for our fans?
Keep it simple: drink plenty of water everyday, aim to get a full night’s deep sleep, think less and do things from the heart, that make you happy.
8) What is your favorite health recipe – can be a health drink?
I'm a big fan of WelleCo’s Super Elixir. Tastes good, mixes well with almond milk or oat milk and it gives me the nutrients I need to feel good throughout the day.
9) What do you love about your Rumies?
I love how comfortable they feel and the beautiful colours that stand out - I receive genuine compliments from strangers when I wear them!
10) Something you’ve always wanted to try, but haven’t yet.
11) How do you stay motivated and/or on track?
It's not easy to always be motivated or on track, but I've found that having the passion or the right attitude helps with my drive and being clear on my intention of the project or task at hand will help me see it through.
