In a world where time is a precious commodity and the demands of daily life often pull us in multiple directions, the quest for health and wellness can sometimes seem like an elusive dream. There are many remarkable women among us who have not only mastered the art of balancing their responsibilities but have also made it their mission to inspire others on their journey to wellness.
As we commemorate National Women's Health and Wellness Day, we're sitting down with Linda and Fanny, two incredible women who not only excel in their roles here at Lifesum, but also embody the spirit of well-being in their personal lives. Linda, a dedicated advocate for health and wellness, serves as Lifesum's Senior Performance marketing manager. Fanny, our ever-passionate Workplace Wellbeing Director, has a deep-rooted commitment to spreading the message of balanced living.
Join us in this unique conversation where we explore how they manage to strike a harmonious balance between their bustling schedules and their own health and wellness. Moreover, we'll uncover the nuggets of wisdom they'd share with their younger selves and the heartfelt messages they have for all the women working diligently to prioritize their well-being.
Linda, my role is Senior performance marketing manager. I work with digital advertising and creative planning in the marketing team at Lifesum.
I prioritise regular morning or lunch walks, eat home made food and try to get enough sleep to recover.
Prioritize peace over worry, rest like it's a task, cherish family and friends, savor wholesome food, embrace nature, and always indulge in what brings you happiness.
Embrace progress, not perfection, and celebrate each step you take towards a healthier you.
I'm Fanny Pihl, a happy, healthy, and hilarious woman (at least that's what I hear). During my almost five years at Lifesum, I've been involved in many aspects of our journey to improve and grow our business and company. Firstly within HR, organizational and cultural projects, and now working with business development and opportunity expansion in our enterprise team.
I think of it as a life schedule, and I follow my inner energy and make time for what I think benefits me that specific day. Some days I feel strong, happy, and ready to make active and healthy choices, other days I'm tired and want to eat what I crave, and just rest my body and mind. Balance is a word that can't be used enough.
With age comes wisdom and experience, and therefore I would say that my younger version is the one who actually lived better by the advice I actively remind myself of and use today. Movement over sitting still, reading over scrolling, and non-alcohol over alcohol.
Honestly, depending on my hormones (the lady struggle is real!), I'm either a "Running a Marathon? Bring it on.", or "Oh, this chocolate bar tastes sooo good today".
To me, my well-being comes from within and being kind to myself and my body, and I think that it's easier to make smaller steps in my health journey at the present time, than to make massive efforts later in life.
