About Truly Julie
Finding the time to prioritise small moments of self-care throughout each day has been essential in my journey to optimum health and well-being. It is now my goal to inspire other women to do the same and it is my passion to guide them along the way.
With Truly Julie membership you will receive a daily dose of this inspiration, as well as regular practical tips and advice.
I truly believe that by combining all of the good things in life, such as a healthy diet, yoga and meditation (to name just a few!), that you can nourish your body and fuel your mind to be the happiest, healthiest version of yourself possible.
How do I know that these things work? Because they worked for me!
I grew up as your typical skinny American cheerleader, gorging on junk food and ignoring the harm my diet was doing to my body because I thought being thin meant being healthy! But the truth is that I felt rubbish! I was exhausted, I was moody and my skin didnâ€™t look so hot either!
I eventually decided to change my lifestyle after a lot of research into nutrition and exercise. I cut out all the rubbish from my diet, embraced plant-based foods and I exercised regularly. Before long my skin started to look great, my energy levels soared and I felt much happier and balanced. In addition to all of these great improvements, I also began to get physically stronger.
I have continued with this way of life ever since and started to take it even more seriously after having my fourth child several years ago. At this time I began practicing yoga more regularly and I also started studying for certain nutrition-focused qualifications to really deepen my understanding.
I first studied for a Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University before becoming a Certified Holistic Health Counsellor through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the worldâ€™s largest nutrition school! I am also now a certified yoga instructor, having completed my training under Baron Baptiste, the founder of the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Institute. After my training, I went to India to study yoga with Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala.
As a mother of four, a wife and a business owner, I find that making the time to care for myself keeps me energised so that I can do all of these things to the best of my ability!
But enough about me! Letâ€™s get back to how
Becoming a Truly Julie Woman can help you to get your health and your happiness back on track!
When life gets hectic our self-care is often the first thing that gets neglected and the negative health implications of this can soon grow.
