Outdoor, travel, adventure…if I could add one more area that I am truly passionate about, it’s wellness. Some of you know that for the past two years I have been involved in the launch of a healthy living website for Canadians called tuja wellness. I have contributed as an editor, writer and marketing lead and this project has been one of the most gratifying for me thus far.
Working on a project that is inspiring Canadians to make healthier choices has encouraged me to keep pursuing my own wellness journey and has educated me on many aspects of healthy living I had not ever considered before. I would generally consider myself to be a healthy person, but there is always opportunity to grow. tuja wellness gives people the tools they need to keep growing and learning.
In my latest piece for tuja wellness, Get Your Iron, Girl: Preventing Deficiency, I didn’t delve into my own personal story, but it is what ultimately inspired the piece. A few winters ago, I was really struggling with low energy. I would head out ski touring and feel unusually wiped. Each stride was a struggle for weeks on end and I began to feel really discouraged. I finally went to the doctor and discovered my iron levels were rock-bottom. This is a really common issue, especially amongst women, and I decided to do a little bit of digging. So I called on my friend, holistic nutritionist Samantha Peris, of nu roots nutrition, and put together an interview.
Thanks for tuning in!
