Wellness Community Member: Michelle Garland, Holistic Nutritionist, Registered Sign Language Interpreter and Wellness Enthusiast

Let me introduce myself: 
Hi! My name is Michelle Garland. I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, a Registered Sign Language Interpreter and Wellness Enthusiast!
This is what wellness means to me:
I think of wellness as a philosophy. It’s happiness. It’s balance. It’s being surrounded by positive energy and experiencing life in a way that nourishes my mind, body and soul. It’s giving myself permission for self-care and protecting my boundaries by saying no to things that don’t align.
I contribute to the wellness community by:
I am the founder of Plentyfullme Nutrition and Lifestyle Consulting where I bring individuals’ health back into balance by working with them one-on-one to implement simple and realistic modifications to their dietary choices, lifestyle habits and emotional well-being. I also give talks in the community and teach cooking classes in both spoken English and in American Sign Language.
One item I cannot live without:
My biomat. It’s a far infrared mat covered with amethyst crystals made to promote circulation and increase cellular communication, relaxation and detoxification.
My favourite self care practice is:
An infrared yin yoga class – it just melts away the stress! Laying on my biomat. A hot bath with essential oils and Epsom salts. Curling up on the couch sipping on a warm adaptogenic elixir while reading a good book. And going for walks in the forest – this is my kind of meditation.
How I keep my wellness simplified:
I take one day at a time and always celebrate the small victories.
This is what motivates me:
My clients, they’re my why – I wouldn’t be where I am without them. Also, my expanders – seeing fellow entrepreneurs in the wellness field rock their businesses, I find it super inspiring.

Wellness Community Member: Sophia Ruiz, Wife, Mama + Wellness Enthusiast

Sophia Brigstock
Let me introduce myself: Hey! I’m Sophia Ruiz, wife, mama to Isabel Grace, and wellness enthusiast.
This is what wellness means to me: For me, wellness is about feeling your best. I believe that when you feel better, you do better!
I contribute to the wellness community by: I have been apart of the wellness community for about four years now. Everyone I encounter has to sit through some wellness spiel while I talk to them about organic food and celery juice. I also run a wellness Instagram called Curve Wellness where I post simple science-based health tips.
One item I can’t live without:  I can’t live without my juicer! It makes my celery juice every morning.
My favorite self care practice: An essential oil epsom salt detox bath, yummy-smelling soy candles, face mask, and sea minerals salt scrub is my favorite way to take care of myself.
How I keep my wellness simplified: I like to look at wellness as a combination of sleep, nature, food, and fitness. If all these are good, you’re probably good!
This is what motivates me: Seeing other successful women in the wellness realm is a huge motivator for me. I love to see some girl bosses!
