As our studio is full of clever, passionate and hilarious (self-proclaimed) women, we feel it’s vital to celebrate and promote the great work of International Women’s Day.
Over the course of this week, leading up to IWD, we will be featuring empowering businesswomen from a range of fields, including finance, education, health, and social enterprise. We’ve curated a list of incredible female role models and brands who put their values at the heart of their business and shared them in a blog series, just for you. So, put those feet up, pour yourself that overdue glass of red and get ready to be inspired.
Meet Keira, the holistic wellbeing expert and founder of Krumbled. After struggling with her own health battles this self-confessed foodie is now an ambassador for showing others just how easy it is to encompass a healthy lifestyle, no matter where you are or what you are doing. It’s all about finding your unique, individual, balance.
We spoke to Keira about her business and where her passion for women’s health all started, as well as the hard-hitting question – social media, friend or foe? Plus, if you’re in need of a lil’ social detox – Keira’s given us her top 3 tips for switching off and getting back into the world.
Krumbled began as a little food blog! Documenting my weight loss journey through healthy recipes & snacks. My love for healthy living then helped evolve Krumbled into more of a “lifestyle” type company with the focus to create an online destination for the modern day woman. Krumbled Foods then began from Krumbled, when I saw a huge gap in the market place for healthy snacking options that actually were as healthy as they claimed to be.
I am a huge believer in the mind gut connection, with the mind being your “second gut”. The saying you are what you eat, is so true. I am at my happiest when I am fueling my mind and body with nourishing food.
My love of food has been instilled in me since I was a young child, and I think deep down my passion for how I feel when I am at my best has always been there. However, my health and wellness journey truly started when my health was on the decline, I spent more of my time inside doctors surgeries than outside at one point. I find this is the case with a lot of business owners within the health and wellbeing space!
Start small! Get walking, get outside, embrace nature. Everything in moderation is key, I find myself wanting what I can’t have (that cheese and wine duo gets me every time).
When used correctly, social media can be an incredibly powerful tool. I always like to do a bit of a “cleanse” every now and then. If an account doesn’t light me up, or inspire me – it is time to unfollow. There is nothing worse than being 45 mins deep into a social media vortex and to start feeling crappy about yourself.
Yes, 100%. I feel quite drained at times, however taking time offline a few times a year has really helped me to stay in tune with my creative side. I love to create a story through imagery and words, and help spread the word of just how important and easy it is to live a healthy and happy life.
In a world where the Kardashians and waist trainers are a norm, I really feel that there needs to be more “realness” online.
Mental health is something that I have struggled with, and it honestly scares me to think of the way that the younger generation is being brought up, being so connected yet disconnected online. I think it is so important for people to speak the truth, to hopefully help shift the conversation.
I don’t actively go out and check the below accounts, but these are some of my fav!
Everything happens for a reason, even if you endure some horrific things in life, trust your journey.
