What Is The Wellness Chat?

I have been on a journey to wellness for many years now. It all started in 2012 when I briefly became a vegetarian. Since then, I have become a pescatarian, have adopted a lifestyle using essential oils as homeopathic remedies, have become plant-based, and have lost 30 pounds.

Leslie W. Blog began and still is a blog for busy moms & women with topics on family, business, and lifestyle – but I always knew I wanted just a little more in terms of offering my readers information on health & wellness.

A little while ago, I met Jill (you will read more about her momentarily). Jill wrote a blog post for me that you can find here, and ever since reading that post, I just knew that she was part of the missing piece of the puzzle for Leslie W. Blog.

I asked Jill if she would be willing to contribute to Leslie W. Blog regularly, in the form of wellness posts, and she said yes!

So, The Wellness Chat was formed.

What Will I Find at The Wellness Chat?

At The Wellness Chat, you will find blog posts & resources written & provided namely by Jill DeMasi (bio below) that cover wellness in the form of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
