1. Welcome to FHGC! Thank you for joining us. Tell me about yourself and what keeps you blooming in your purpose?
Hello. Thank you so much for having me on Flourish heights. I am Addie Owusu, Production Assistant by day and blogger by night. Inspiring confidence in women is really what keeps me blooming in my purpose. Whether it’s through styling or speaking engagements, helping women find confidence in themselves is incredibly fulfilling.
2. What does wellness mean to you, in one word? How are you balancing wellness in your everyday life?
Peace. To me wellness has always primarily been mental, so peace of mind is always on the forefront of my wellness journey. In reference to balance I try to be mindful of my mental state; particularly in instances of stress. Sometimes a few moments of deep breathing can help to refocus and cleanse the mind. Origins also has this amazing product called “Peace of Mind” which is a great quick fix for me.
3. What’s an exciting accomplishment you have made so far on your wellness journey?
I recently got a gym membership! It sounds so mundane for a young professional to have a gym membership. but starting my day off with an hour or so at the gym really helps to clear my mind and focus on the workday.
4. The FH lifestyle is about planting your health on higher ground. What is your biggest advice to someone who is on the path to flourishing heights?
Be purposeful. Often times we delve into situations without completely understanding our long term reasoning’s behind them. Writing down my goals and more importantly the reasons behind them is a great tool for me. I review them weekly which helps me stay grounded.
