Welcome to my blog about health, wellness, massage therapy and essential oils.
I’m Jen McGahan and I started this site a couple of weeks short of my 50th birthday; proof that every new day is a chance to start again.
Over the last decade(ish) as a copywriter and consultant with my digital marketing agency, My Team Connects, I’ve worn umpteen hats and helped lots of folks get their websites and social media kickstarted online. But the constant, underlying theme throughout my professional, work-from-home routine has been a dedication to a life of purpose, wellness, and freedom.
I’m a divorced, single mom of three kids. It used to be a busy household, with lots of hobbies and activities. Now that the kids are older, suddenly there’s more time for me, which is weird. I’m still a master juggler of schedules, emotions, and messes, though. Even when your kids grow up, you’re never any less a mom. Before my divorce, I had a digital marketing agency that helped clients achieve their dreams of freedom and flexibility through their online businesses. Now I’m focusing on the power of touch (massage therapy) to heal and promote self awareness. No matter which hat I’m wearing, I’ve never stopped believing in the idea that anyone can create a wonderful, unique lifestyle of their own design.
For me – no matter what sort of upheaval and stress sweeps in (and with three young adults there are plenty, trust me!) – I keep some daily habits that help me feel awesome and stay grounded. It’s important to me to be connected with the One, so I spend a little of each day in meditation and conscious breath. I believe health begins with movement, simple, fresh food, and clean water.
I’ve also discovered a few extra “secrets” to accomplish wellness and happiness, one day at a time.
Essential Oils Advocate
I’m a member-independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils, so I’ll be sharing how Young Living products reduce toxins and make my family’s life and household the best it can be.
I’m just finishing up my year-long massage therapy training, obtaining my license at the end of January 2020. In addition to massage, I’m licensed in Manual Lymphatic Drainage, which is a wonderful modality to clear the lymph system, boost your immunity and help with all sorts of conditions a body faces in the normal course of Life. (Your lymphatic system is the unsung hero of a healthy body, by the way.)
Fitness is my Happy Hour
Finally, I’m a huge fan of a robust fitness routine, and I love being around people who keep learning and moving through life.
I’m glad you’re here! We’re in for a treat. The best is yet to be…
