Tell us a little bit about yourself!
My name is Ri! I am a wellness creative and entrepreneur. I share content online about my wellness journey and what I am doing to become the best version of myself. I am also the founder of a brand called for the healthy hoes— a wellness magazine that provides wellness education at a very basic level to all human beings regardless of what they look like or where they are from.
What is your favorite GOLDE product and how do you use it?
My favorite Golde product would have to be Coconut Collagen Boost, hands down. I love to use it in my morning smoothie. I’m obsessed with the benefits that it provides and even more blown away by the flavor.
What is your Golden Hour?
My Golden Hour would definitely have to be my morning routine— getting some movement in, meditating, journaling, and my morning drink, which is typically a smoothie or juice. I’m also a mom. So, I find that early mornings are the easiest time of the day to get some alone time in.
What inspired you to create your wellness magazine and how do you find moments of quiet between working on so many projects?
What really inspired me to create my wellness magazine is the existing gaps within the wellness industry. One being lack of representation. With the lack of representation, it’s hard for different perspectives to be heard. This is a really important aspect because it’s essential for everyone (regardless of what they look like or where they’re from) to feel seen and heard. The second gap would be accessibility. This is something that isn’t talked about far enough. Sure, some of us don’t have access to decent grocery stores to purchase fresh produce and pantry items (which is a huge issue) but a lot of people do not have the basic knowledge on how to take care of themselves and nourish their bodies with healthy meals. My team and I really work hard to bridge these gaps within the wellness industry one step at a time.
Although I enjoy working on many projects, quiet time is essential for me. My habits within my morning routine are daily rituals that keep me going. It’s a part of my well being. If I don’t prioritize these things— working out, meditation, journaling, and nourishing my body with whole foods, I honestly don’t know how I would be able to do the work that i do within my community.
