Wellness Influencers You Should Be Following

Edited by Olivia Spahn-Vieira  

As 2020 comes to a wrap, we have our sights set on making 2021 the best it can be. I know *my focus* in 2021 is to improve my health and wellness. I need to be the best Kate I can be. What about you? So, I want to share with you some of my favourite wellness influencers that I follow, (and that you need to as well!)

 

Arianna Huffington

After collapsing from sleep deprivation and exhaustion, Arianna started ThriveGlobal. She saw how important it was to connect well-being and performance. As well, she realized that a lot of the world is reaching the point of burn-out, and that needs to change. 

ThriveGlobal is a campaign that creates awareness about the reality of stress and burnout, helping people to manage their pressures while still working towards their goals. 

 

Jessamyn Stanley

Yoga Teacher. Body Positive Advocate. Writer. Jessamyn is a Queer Black woman, looking to empower all women, of all bodies. She founded her own company, The Underbelly, a virtual yoga studio, and online shop, to help individuals to tunes in with themselves and live authentically. Her approach to wellness includes defying the stereotype of how women's bodies "should" look, and instead, celebrating all body-types, through the practice of yoga. 

Her latest book, Every Body Yoga: Let Go of Fear, Get On the Mat, Love Your Body, has a how-guide to different toga poses and techniques for beginners to the advanced stage!

Emilie Eats

Our next #wellnessinfluencer started her yummy, vegan food blog in her sophomore year of college. She doesn't believe in an all-or-nothing approach to nutrition, and instead, focuses on balance. Emilie follows evidence-based nutrition, and sets an example by eating satisfying food that fuels her body.
