In the era of social media, we are simultaneously blessed by access to more information than we could have ever imagined, and challenged by the side effects of increased feelings of anxiety, stress, and isolation. Faced with the oversaturated and hyper-commercialized “health & wellness” content market found online, it is hard to find a research-based source for reputable information and advice. Our mission is to translate our passion for food and fitness to empower women to have a positive relationship with their overall well-being. We are a community of women who are determined to transform the way people think about physical and mental health by creating a platform that approaches it holistically.
What does our name mean?
“hol” stands for holistic, which includes “3” dimensions of health: physical, mental, and social
