Phorest FM Episode 124: Rachel Ringwood On Breaking The Barrier Of Mental, Physical & Spiritual Health As A Hairstylist
According to Gary Vaynerchuk’s definition of the word, hustling is putting every minute and all your effort into achieving the goal at hand. Every minute needs to count. But what happens when you forget to take care of yourself? When you’re so caught up in the hustling, that you ignore the signs your body sends you?
Hairstylists are often so busy they tend to put their own health aside for their clients. Back to back bookings may prevent many from eating, hydrating or even stopping to stretch. Featuring Miami-based hairstylist, owner, entrepreneur and mental health advocate Rachel Ringwood, this week’s episode brings to light her struggles with the hustling, how a traumatic brain injury made her reevaluate her health and lifestyle & what she’s now doing to raise awareness to the matter.
