1. Welcome to FHGC! Thank you for joining us. Tell me about yourself and what keeps you blooming in your purpose?
Thank you so much for having me. I am so excited to be on FHGC! I am Rose, Creative director at DadouStudios, Photographer, and I blog sometimes. Developing & investing in my passions are what keep me blooming in my purpose. I find that every time I focus on an area that I am passionate about it leads me closer to what I am supposed to be doing. So if anyone is struggling to find their purpose, I’d say just do what you’re passionate about and it will lead you to it.
2. What does wellness mean to you, in one word? How are you balancing wellness in your everyday life?
If I have to describe wellness in one word personally, I’d say “Awareness“. As I described it, when you have that self-awareness you make better choices. I know in order for me to live a higher quality life it all comes down to making better choices everyday. I make sure that I am making the right choices in everything I do whether it’s food, fashion, beauty, etc.
3. What’s an exciting accomplishment you have made so far on your wellness journey?
So many! The most exciting accomplishments (I’ll give 2) that I’ve made so far this year is meditating twice daily and giving up coffee. Coffee is a strong stimulant. It gives us a few hours of fuel until we crash and crave that fuel again. Basically, we are creating a pattern that could lead to sleep disturbances and anxiety; which I used to suffer from. If you would have told me years ago I’d be an evangelist for meditation, I would have laughed, but it’s made the biggest difference in my life.
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?
The biggest advice I can give to someone is to invest in yourself, physically and mentally. Your body is the only place you have to live in. Meditate & practice gratitude.
