“One of the most effective things you can do to build better habits is to join a culture where your desired behavior is the normal behavior.” – James Clear
Mercedes is a licensed social worker who works primarily with the LGBTQIA+ community. She has spent many years struggling to manage her anxiety and depression symptoms. It took her years to realize the connection between the foods she was eating and how it impacted her mentally and physically, and many more years to implement the needed changes to develop a healthier lifestyle for herself. As a track & field (sprinter) athlete in both high school and college, she also found herself eating foods that worked against her performance. Through her own journey, she has learned (and is still learning) the importance of awareness when it comes to making positive health choices. As someone who has tried to “go at it alone” for many years, she has come to understand the power of being surrounded by a loving and supportive community. Community is a huge component of Trifecta Wellness Indy! Nothing feels better than to be in the thick of the woods of your journey and being surrounded by a community of trees that are right next to you cheering you on.
Julienne has spent her youth and adulthood involved in athletics and living an active lifestyle. In 2009 she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis which came with many health related obstacles including weight gain, brain fog, lethargy, and inflammation. This was a huge setback as she realized so much of her identity was embedded in her performance and appearance. She spent many years after her diagnosis trying various diets, losing the weight just to gain it back, and feeling discouraged every time. Through Julienne’s journey, she discovered the connection between the foods she was eating and how it impacted her mental and physical well-being. Through this discovery she made a commitment to educate herself which allowed her to develop an awareness of how her daily habits were inhibiting her ability to live the life she wanted. Julienne continues to learn ways to combat her autoimmune symptoms through an active lifestyle, proper nutrition, and connecting with a supportive community. The biggest lesson she strives to live by is, “Love yourself enough to give your body what it needs to live a long and healthy life. Invest in yourself.” EVERYONE can overcome setbacks and conquer their health goals with the right tools and a supportive environment. She hopes that through Trifecta Wellness Indy, she can equip others with the strategies and awareness they need to cultivate their wellness goals for a lifetime.
