BINTO: What's the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? 

The first few things I do are think of something I am grateful for (before my eyes are even really open), then make my bed, tongue scrape and brush my teeth, and last but definitely not least meditate.

BINTO: Tell us about your eating habits. 

The only thing I can say about my eating habits is that I am vegan. I have come SO far with my relationship with food that I don’t deem things healthy or unhealthy. I will say that probably 85% of what I eat is fruits and vegetables because that works for me, but I also have chocolate every single day and have vegan VooDoo donuts on the reg.

BINTO: What workouts do you enjoy? Which do you not enjoy?

I am obsessed with cycling! I am also a registered yoga teacher, so I love yoga as well, though to get to my mat is far more of a mental battle (the mind loves to go, go, go!). I also thoroughly enjoy CrossFit which I recently got into! A good walk in nature is also my jam. TBH, I love almost all movement besides Pilates and barre -- just not for me. 🙂

BINTO: What was the defining moment when you realized you could take your health into your own hands?

The first time I ever meditated. My mental health comes before anything else, because for years and years anxiety kept me quiet, scared, worthless, ashamed... you name it. The first time I meditated I realized I am NOT my thoughts, I get to CHOOSE them, and in that moment everything changed.
Take Your Wellness Into Your Own Hands

BINTO: How has your wellness routine evolved over the years? 

Good question. I think that the best way to summarize my wellness routine expansion is in that I now do what is TRULY right for me and listen to my body. I used to be obsessed with looking a certain way, and that dictated everything I did. I also used to be afraid of being alone and being in quiet. Now, I can’t get enough alone time in the mountains of Colorado, and I meditate for an average of 30 minutes a day. I live intuitively and that helps me be well, whereas I used to adhere to things I thought I “should” be doing.

BINTO: Do you use Binto? If so, what kind of changes have you experienced as a result? 

Yes! I love it. As a vegan, the only thing I truly cannot get from my diet is B12, so having that in my Binto every month is so great. I also love having a probiotic because #GUTHEALTH. I genuinely look forward to taking my Binto every morning.

BINTO: What product can’t you live without?

My Franklin & Whitman all-natural skin care products.

BINTO: What is your biggest challenge in terms of health or wellness right now? 

I would probably say it’s still finding the balance between enough “me” time and flowing and being present while also doing what I want and not holding myself back. This is a wellness challenge because anxiety can set in when I don’t find the balance between rest and hustle.

BINTO: How do YOU define wellness?

Wellness to me is being in tune with my Inner Being/Soul/Intuition and flowing from that place for every decision, every thought, every action.
