Being a Mama is the hardest, happiest, saddest, proudest…well let’s face it, being a Mama is the biggest rollercoaster you will ever ride. It is the most rewarding thing you will ever do in your lifetime, but in the midst of it all our own wellness can take a backseat.
Being a good Mama does not mean you have to sacrifice all of you. I have come to realize it is the exact opposite. Being a good Mama means taking care of you and making sure you are healthy and happy. The better you feel, the more you have to give to your family.
I created this space for all the Mamas in the world who want to get there Wellness back on track. This is about Real Life. Real You.
It is for those Mamas who are trying to “fit it all in” with the one life we are blessed to live.
I have yet to meet anyone who does not struggle with balance. Family, friends, work, sleep, housework, groceries, working out, eating healthy…OMG, the list for Mamas goes on and on.
I am right here with you. Trying hard everyday to be the best Mama I can be. Somedays are better than others, but at the end of the day it is my story, my journey and my crazy happy life.
Real Life. Real You.
My name is Amy Bowers I am so incredible blessed to share my journey, story and knowledge with all of you. I am a registered nurse, a holistic nutrition coach and a mamatrenpeur, but I am first and foremost a family girl. I consider my 2 biggest successes in life to be my marriage and my 2 children.
I have been married to my best friend since 2004. We have a bond that many people don’t understand. He is my rock, my biggest supporter, my 3rd child, my crazy, and by far my biggest holistic challenge to date!
My daughter Billie is a mini me. She has a heart of gold, she is witty, smart, athletic and has the most beautiful soul I have ever been witness to. She teaches me everyday about how to see the positives in every situations and I am blessed for all that she is teaching me.
My son Madden is my best little buddy; a true Mama’s boy! He is the most passionate person I have ever met. He is athletic, funny, smart, kind and he is the best cuddler around. He teaches me everyday to be strong, confident and that anything worth doing is doing with your whole heart. He lives his life all-in.
I am striving everyday to raise them to love holistic living, to love themselves unconditionally, to be vulnerable, to embrace their imperfections and to love life.
Where my passion for health and wellness came from:
I grew up in a home where food was very important. My mom was and is a great cook. I remember from an early age falling in love with health and wellness and it continued into my adult life where I graduated with a BScN and have been a practising RN since 2003. It wasn’t until 2016 that I finally decided to follow my passion and enroll in a Holistic Nutrition program and put my focus into Holistic Wellness.
I have struggled personally with perfectionism my whole life and have been working very hard to overcome my fears and imperfections. I consider myself a recovering perfectionist. I have learned to embrace holistic wellness; which has changed my outlook and direction of my life. This change has created a healthier and happier life for myself and my family and want to share my knowledge and experience with the world.
Focusing on you as a Mama is a way of life and requires changes to your everyday habits and choices. It took me a lot of years to figure this one out and I still struggle with it at times. Being a well Mama, is not about being perfect, but being the best version of you. I hope you can relate to what I have to say and allow me to join you on your wellness journey .
Real Life. Real You.
