Maranda Elkin, Holistic Health & Wellness Coach
Life. Love. Health. Career. It's all connected.
I help fast-paced millennial women develop stress-coping mechanisms and healthy eating habits so that they continue to rise at work and avoid energy burnout.
Hi, I'm Maranda Elkin. Welcome to my space! I'm a holistic health coach and I work with ambitious women in their late-20s and 30s who are looking to make changes in order to create a happier and healthier lifestyle.
I spent most of my 20s chasing money and "success" because I thought it would make me happy. Spoiler Alert: it didn't! It wasn't until I had everything I ever wanted (making 6-figures in NYC and a huge promotion) that I realized, "This doesn't this FEEL like happiness."
For years, I had been suffering chronic stomach pain, heart burn, and mood swings but I figured, this is what everyone feels like, right? It wasn't until I had a huge health scare that I was like, "Wake up, lady. What are you doing here?"
It took me a long heart-breaking year to realize the life I built for myself was no longer working for me. Then it took me another painful year to make changes so that I could live my best life. For me.
Now, I am so much happier. I'm proud to say I am living in personal alignment. No longer living a life for others, but listening to my inner wants and desires and following those pursuits. And guess what? No one died!
Here's a hard truth: It is almost impossible to make these types of changes on our own. Change is scary. Many of us would rather live a life we hate than venture into the unknown. But if you're in your 20s or 30s, you're going to be living another 60-80+ years! You have time to change course, form new habits, and live differently.
That's why I now coach others to treat themselves with the love they deserve, whether that's eating better, finding an exercise they love, learning to manage stress, or navigating a new life direction.
Despite what your inner critic may tell you, it's NOT too late to change direction or follow a new dream. We all deserve the chance to be happy and successful right here, right now, this life. And I'm here to help you get there.
