IN 2016, I FELT LIKE I WAS AT THE LOWEST OF THE LOWS. I FELT THAT I HAD HIT ROCK BOTTOM. I WAS MISERABLE WITH WHO I WAS, SO DEPRESSED, HIGHLY ANXIOUS, AND THE UNHAPPIEST I HAD EVER BEEN. AS TIME WENT ON, IT JUST KEPT GETTING WORSE. I NEEDED HELP, SO I DID THE HARDEST THING I’VE EVER HAD TO DO: ASK FOR IT.


THAT NIGHT, I WENT TO TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION + ANXIETY. I REMEMBER IT WAS JANUARY 23, 2017. I COULDN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES, UNTIL IT’S NOT FUN ANYMORE. I LEARNED MORE ABOUT MYSELF IN 4 WEEKS THAN I EVER DID IN 23 YEARS OF LIFE. IT GAVE ME THE KEY TO SELF DISCOVERY AND I WAS WELL ON MY WAY. IT OPENED THE DOOR TO A WHOLE NEW WORLD I KNEW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT. TO THIS DAY, IT WAS THE GREATEST DECISION I’VE EVER MADE.


OVER THE NEXT FOUR WEEKS I LEARNED ABOUT EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION, MINDFULNESS, LETTING GO OF WHAT NO LONGER SERVES ME, MAKING SMART DECISIONS, AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF ‘UNLEARNING’.


THE MOST SURPRISING THING TO ME WAS, “WHY IS THIS THE FIRST TIME I’M LEARNING THIS?” I WENT TO UNIVERSITY, WAS WELL-EDUCATED, BUT I NEVER KNEW HOW TO BE HAPPY AND “LIVE WELL.”


I RETURNED BACK TO NORMAL LIFE AND MY JOURNEY CONTINUED. IN OCTOBER, I MADE THE DECISION TO GET SOBER. IT CHANGED MY LIFE IN EVERY WAY. IT WAS THE SINGLE PIECE THAT WAS MISSING.


FAST FORWARD TO TODAY: ALL OF THE TIPS I’VE LEARNED AND CHANGES I HAVE MADE HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS. WELLNESS WITH TESS IS A RESULT OF THAT JOURNEY. I'M GRATEFUL TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE WITH YOU, IN HOPES THAT IT CAN HELP BETTER YOUR LIFE AS WELL. I’M EXCITED TO TAKE YOU ON THIS JOURNEY TO OUR MOST AUTHENTIC SELVES.


MENTAL HEALTH. PHSYICAL HEALTH. SPIRITUAL HEALTH: WE TALK ABOUT IT ALL. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. WWT IS A COMMUNITY OF LIKE MINDED WOMEN WHO WANT TO LIVE WELL.


I’M SO EAGER TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK. I’M GRATEFUL YOU’RE HERE. AND I’M EXCITED TO SEE HOW IT ALL UNFOLDS.
