I’m active online in a few different health communities, therefore I get to meet a handful of amazing female Health Activists. Today I wanted to introduce you to a few of them that have recently made a strong impact on my life as a women’s Health Activist!
First I’d like to introduce you to Shannan. I met Shannan through the Fit Group at WEGO Health on Ning. Shannan is not only a fantastic motivator when it comes to working out, she keeps an incredibly active blog with her sister-in-law at Living a Whole Life. She has been a great new friend in my life, encouraging me to keep moving even after surgery, and to seek more information on living that whole life she writes about. Shannan did a Spotlight Interview with WEGO Health that every woman should read to learn more about holistic health. You can also follow Shannan on Twitter!
Second, meet Rachel Gurevich a writer for the About.com fertility page and a freelance author for her own website. I found her through WEGO Health, as well, as she did a engaging Spotlight Interview before one of our community advisory boards about fertility. With her favorite vacation spot being a cottage tucked away in Israel, who wouldn’t want to know more about this woman? The thing that really pulled me into Rachel’s Spotlight Interview was the fact that she is continually writing information in a “girlfriend-to-girlfriend voice” so that everyone understands what she’s talking about. I wish that more health experts were willing to take the time to do just this. Thank you, Rachel! Feel like making a new friend? Follow Rachel on Twitter!
The third women I recommend you all check out is Andrea Albright, self proclaimed “author, yoga instructor, meditation guide, healthy weight loss coach and former “chubby girl'”. Like the previous two women, I found Andrea through her Spotlight Interview. I connected with Andrea when she mentioned her favorite food being raspberries (best fruit ever!) and then was drawn in by her “count chemicals, not calories” idea of dieting. I wouldn’t do justice in explaining it, so I’ll send you to her website to read more about how to healthfully lose the weight that refuses to budge! You can also follow Andrea on Twitter if you’re interested in seeing her advice in less than 140 characters! (I know I am!)
After meeting these women, are you curious as to whether you’re a Health Activist or not? WEGO Health offers a fun and quick quiz that will tell you just what kind of Health Activist you are. Head over here to take the Health Activist Survey and see what other amazing people you can meet!
