OFFICIAL Hummel Wellness Launch Coming Soon!

May 21, 2019

Thanks for stopping by Hummel Wellness. We’ll be up and running here shortly!!! We’ve just experienced a few delays, given the state of the world currently. But no fear, we’ll be Officially Launching sooner than later. We’re just getting our ducks in a row and and have some exciting partnerships announcing soon….

This blog will be offering content geared towards individuals looking to make healthier choices in their busy lives and offer information geared towards the music industry. As both health and music are big passions over here.

I’ve had a career in the music industry for almost 20 years, which encompasses many late nights, lots of traveling, crazy schedules, not always a lot of healthy food options available on the go and not a lot of down time.

Along the way, I’ve had to learn some hard lessons on how to make my health a bigger priority and strive to find a work/life balance. As I’ve gotten older and was essentially forced to stop and take a real look at my life almost 10 years ago with having several major autoimmune and chronic illness flare ups knock me down, my perspective on what I valued, made me then prioritize accordingly. I’m grateful I have a job I love and find rewarding, but no longer at the price of my health.  I have a family now and need to be a present partner with those people. I work as much as my body and mind can handle and I set health boundaries, plan ahead when traveling and create time for myself to rest.

Join me on my personal journey towards conquering autoimmune & chronic illness, with diaries of my experiences, products & places I’ve discovered, recipes and tips/tricks to making healthier choices at home & when traveling.

As well as check back for my tips on “How To Manage Healthy Living in The Music Industry” with featured musicians and guest contributors!
