Linda “the Wellness Warrior” Wells — Instead of Depression, I choose Wellness
I am Linda “Wellness Warrior” Wells. I hold a Masters in Education. I am an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200), health coach, chef providing customized nutrition plans for future Wellness Warriors. I empower people along our shared journey, to release habits no longer serving them and live healthier and happier lives.
This lap of my wellness journey began in 2011, when I left my career of nearly 10 years after burning-out. I was a Program Director serving in a youth and community agency. We were deep in the recession, youth programs were closing in the midst of a spike in youth violence and murders in the City of Boston.
I observed my youth, colleagues and myself on life support. No one was being empowered or encouraged to take care of their own well-being. As a community we were in survival mode and suffering from socioeconomic health related inequities i.e. depression, obesity, and post traumatic stress.
One day, I woke up and realized I was over 220 lbs, lonely, burnt-out and the career, I loved became a J-O-B. Since that day I’ve chosen Wellness everyday. I left that job and found myself somehow collecting Supplemental
Do great things,
Linda “The Wellness Warrior” Wells
