How THIS Tech Platform Will Make 2019 Your Healthiest Year Yet.

As a recruiter in the Digital Media and MarTech space, it’s no secret that I am obsessed with emerging technology. There is no industry immune from disruption by technological advancements and the companies that I work with are changing- and in some cases saving- lives. In the midst of such rapid and exciting change, it can be easy to overlook the cost of our world’s digital transformation, especially when the benefits are so vast. However, the always on,” hyper-connected” lifestyle that technology has afforded us does come with a price: if left unchecked, it can disrupt our mental as well as our physical health. As my grandfather always said, “there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.”

Admittedly, I am my own worst enemy in that regard. I feel naked without my phone in my pocket and am totally lost when I can’t check my email every five minutes. It has taken me years to realize [read: accept] that the lack of balance in my life was the cause of my never ending health issues and it was only after I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition that I began to understand the importance of self-care…specifically in the form of a truly nourishing diet.

With so many conflicting expert opinions out there, it can feel overwhelming- if not impossible- to know what that type of diet looks like, especially because it’s different for everyone. However, under the guidance of some of the world’s most renowned experts and with the help of some amazing coaches, I figured out what works for me.

Many things have changed in my life since I began the arduous- and costly- journey into holistic health. One thing that hasn’t is my passion for emerging technology. Which is why I am beyond excited about the launch of Wellory.

Wellory was founded with the passion to make holistic wellness easily accessible and affordable. With a background in technology startups and training in holistic health, the founding team is transforming the way the wellness world understands personalized health. Wellory offers live 30 minute health coaching session over phone or video with a certified expert. Their coaches are rigorously screened to provide clients with highly personalized sessions, consistent text/ email support, advice, and accountability (something I still struggle with, despite being a certified holistic health coach myself!).

This is a picture show that you can save money when you use a personalized health coach through Wellory.

Wellory has embraced today’s “always on,” hyper connected world as a force for good and makes sure their members always feel completely supported. And while there’s still no such thing as a free lunch, the team at Wellory makes damn sure that you reap the FULL benefits of any lunch you pay for.
