Hi all! My name is Ciara Michelle and welcome to Pure Wellness! This is the start of what is shaping up to be a most inspiring and transformative journey through the discovery of wellness!
Head on over to the ABOUT page anytime to read about myself, if you feel so inclined. In the meantime, here's a bit about me to start you off.
I've been slowly accumulating and implementing knowledge about holistic nutrition and wellness for over 10 years and am extremely passionate about learning, teaching, and helping others share information about wholesome foods and holistic wellness. It drives my own personal philosophy for life!
Growing up in the Boston area, academics were always at the forefront of my focus. I never had to be told to do my homework or study aside from a little external push to start those larger and more intimidating book reports early. Wellness, however, was always a side dish to my "plate." From starting a yoga and meditation club at my athletics-focused high school, to cooking and bringing lunch every day throughout grad school, I've spent a lot of time thinking and learning about how to feel my best.
It wasn't until my last few months of grad school when I decided that part of feeling my best was to make wellness my full time priority.
The idea for Pure Wellness was born in a university business philosophy lecture about Past, Present, and Future. The discussion that day was about how can businesses use strategy and manage change in light of the scale of time to simply, do business? Really, this concept applies to many, if not all, human and life processes. It struck me that the present is truly a joint effort of the past and the future. Applied to wellness, based on our past and our immediate future, we can work to feel as best we can in the fleeting present moment. A mindset, made up of Past and futURE - it's PURE! (I really do love combining words; possibly my most favorite thing since alliteration.)
Here I plan on sharing all sorts of insights about wellness that can help you gain some exposure and build your perspective of the holistic world. We are sharing this earthly learning experience together, after all!
Finally, I am so excited to share this all with you, not only because I finally get to pursue something I love and am passionate about, but because I truly believe that we all have an opportunity to learn from each other's individuality! The more we share with each other about our practice of wellness, the more we all will discover! The world needs this kind of empathetic sharing in our fast-paced, modern society.
So feel free to reach out! Comment, find me on the CONNECT page to drop me an email or subscribe for updates, say hello on the social media links up above. I'm here to share and learn with you!
