Wellness for Professionals
How many of us are better at giving advice than taking it or even living by it for that matter? If this is you, don't feel bad sis because you're not alone! When it comes to wellness, it's almost like people never want to talk about it. Amea Love Givens from Las Vegas, Nevada said not any more! Through her business, Wellness Love Tribe, she aims to spread wellness and support amongst medical professionals to help them stay healthy and sane of course. After recognizing she needed to care for herself as she would later become a patient, Amea claimed the crown as the Queen of Wellness for Professionals. In the words of Migos, you gotta “Walk it like You talk it.”
What inspired you to start your business and why?: I was a nurse for 9 years whose recently launched a Wellness Meetup Group called Wellness Love Tribe. At my heaviest I was 320 pounds, my anxiety was at an all-time high. While doing diabetic teaching with one of my patients, I instantly realized that this patient was dependent upon mean to be an example and expected me to give him the correct information to get healthy. I was not providing the best care being overweight and I was consumed with the stress of the job. I immediately went home and watched “what the health” and it changed my life forever. I researched and adopted a healthy lifestyle and have lost a total of 82 pounds. During my weight loss journey, l realize there were other medical professionals dealing with the same issues. We as medical professionals are so busy taking care of the patients, that we forget to take care of ourselves. Due to the lack of human interaction in today’s society, The Wellness Love Tribe was born.
What does your company stand for?: There is a lack of human connection, which is why we created a platform for Medical Professionals to gain wellness support while staying connected. Our goal is that Medical Professionals find new ways to incorporate “healthy” into their lifestyle daily, by discovering brands, activities and food in our community.
How do you create the life you want?: I create the life I Want by first remembering my journey is bigger than me, it’s about being blessed in order to bless others. I’m very persistent at achieving new levels in life.
Where do you find inspiration?: I’m inspired by past struggles & creating a better future.
How has your business made you a better person?: My business has made me a better person by being held accountable. I have other medical professionals been inspired by my journey, so it helps me want to become a better person overall.
What makes you HUMAN?: My mistakes make me human and the fact that l’m able to learn from them. I realized that it’s OK to struggle in some areas of your life, but what matters most is that you take the necessary steps daily to get better.
