7 Reasons I am attending Shift Con 2019
Finally attending Shift Con 2019
When I started as a blogger I never thought I would be attending events like Shift Con 2019. I began this blog as a Christian Mom blog. Sharing the struggles of my faith journey. Then four years ago, I embarked on a Weight loss journey that literally changed my life and lifestyle. With the conviction to honor my temple inside and out, I have discovered that is so much more than just exercise and nutrition. I have attended many expos and conferences in regards to Gluten-Free, Fitness, and Wellness, but nothing like Shift Con from what I hear!
Exploring the Pillars of Wellness
There are so many aspects to honoring your temple, but it all falls under wellness. I like to look at wellness in seven categories:
- Stress Management
- Toxic Relationships
- Restorative Self Care
- Spiritual Devotion
A few years ago, I was sharing my perspective with a friend on the new Wellness journey I was embarking once I met my weight loss goal. She had suggested I attend Shift Con. Ever since I have wanted to go but never had an opportunity because of timing, finances, or one year, I just waited too late. Not this year, I am going, and I wanted to share why I am so excited to attend Shift Con this year.
Shift Con is being held Oct. 3- 8th in Atlanta, GA. This will be my first time visiting Atlanta, Georgia. I have driven through, maybe even made a pit stop but I have never checked out the ATL. I am excited to visit a new place.
2.Meet up with other like-minded people
It is very validating to meet other people who share the same views as you. As an African American women who care about wellness in my immediate location. I am one of the few, but when you go to conferences that are focused on Wellness. I know I am not alone. It is encouraging and an excellent opportunity to meet new people to connect.
3. Discover new products in the wellness
The problem with products that are good for you they come at a premium. Not all do what they say. When you go to Expos, you have the experience to try before you buy as well as learn about the new offerings in the market. I have been told that Shift Con is the best place to explore these products.
4. Education on wellness
I am a life long learner. Always investing in education. I am excited to attend some of the workshops and hear various speakers on Wellness.
5.Getaway with my girlfriends for a weekend
I get to see some of my Virtual and now real-life besties! My absolute heart JQue of JQue Now will be rooming. My very dear friend Christina of Growing Up Gorgeous is coming and my Soul Sister Sandrell of NaturalFlyDiva. The Ultimate Slumber Party with some amazing women and I just can’t wait!
6. Finally, get to attend something I have watched others grow
I have been watching via Online Shift Con; it always looks like so much fun. I always see so many bloggers and Influencer that I follow and have watched some cool collaborations manifest through Shift Con networking. And I want in on that! Sometimes you have to leave the comforts of your home office to connect, and I am ready to make connections in the Wellness Industry.
7. Post Back to School Vacation
I don’t know about you, but by the beginning of October, my family is just recovering from the madness of Back to School with three kids. It will be a welcomed treat to get away and learn, shift, and grow at Shift Con, and I can’t wait.
Excited to attend Shift Con 2019
I have no idea what to expect other than what I see through Social Media, but I am excited to attend. I would love for you to join me. If you’re like me curious about the even then you should come and let’s meetup. Even though I have never attended, I know that the investment in my education about wellness and holistic products would be worth it; everything else is a bonus.
