  • The Importance of Discovery With Roxanne McKee

    2nd August 2022

    2nd August 2022

    By Innermost

    We sat down with actress and fitness fanatic Roxanne McKee, who gave us the lowdown on all things discovery. Her important moments of discovery, what it means to her, and how to always keep discovering more in life.

    Hey Roxanne! Can you introduce yourself to our readers?

    Hi! Yes, my name is Roxanne McKee and I’m an actress and sport and nutrition enthusiast.

    How did you become an Innermost Insider and what’s your goal as an ambassador for the brand?

    I found Innermost at a cycling event I was at, and I thought the product was delicious. I’m very conscious about what I put in my body because I suffer from acne so I try to maintain a very balanced diet, while also feeling myself with all the nutrients I need to be on the go all the time.

    Our topic this month is discovery. Discovery is an abstract concept that’s open to interpretation. So how would you personally define discovery?

    I suppose I feel discovery for me is learning to be the best version of my myself both mentally and physically. It’s an ongoing process, and while at times it’s challenging, it’s certainly worth it. I have discovered my passion for nutrition and functional medicine in the last few years, and as a result started doing a course in nutrition. I’m discovering more each day, and it’s keeping me stimulated.

    What have you discovered along your health and fitness journey?

    I have discovered just how lucky I am to have had acne! It was the acne that made me aware of just how important it is to maintain a healthy diet, and how we really can change how we feel through nourishing ourselves. I’ve also discovered my love for nature through trail running. And how a quick dip in the sea, a lake, a cold shower gives you a happy buzz to start your day.

    Is there a time you have struggled on your journey of self-discovery and what’s your advice for someone struggling themselves?

    Advice to anyone struggling would be, just take baby steps, focus on your happiness, and your own goals nobody else’s. Little by little you will get there, it’s about consistency. And I believe in you!

    What are your 3 most important lessons about self-discovery?

    Three most important lessons about self discovery are;
    • Everyone’s journey is unique and personal.
    • Consistency is key
    • Be open to new ideas.

    What Innermost product(s) have you been loving recently?

    I love, love, love The Lean Protein, and The Health Protein (even though I’m not vegan) but I’m a big mushroom fan - I could talk for days about nutritional funghi! But I won’t bore you…

    Roxanne, it’s been a pleasure chatting to you! Our final question is ... What’s your innermost desire that you’re hoping comes true this year?

    I hope I pass all my fitness and nutrition exams!

    Learning To Relax And Unwind With Georgia Mitchell
    We sat down with Innermost Insider Georgia Mitchell, who gave us the lowdown on all things relaxation. How she makes sure to prioritise time to relax, her favourite ways to unwind, and her tips on what to do when burnout seems to be lurking on the horizon. Hey Georgia! Could you introduce yourself to our readers? Hi, I’m Georgia or @georgiafayefitness on Instagram. I love all things fitness, health & wellness. Eight weeks ago I moved to the other side of the world and I now live in Australia! Although this is such a big jump, I honestly couldn’t be happier. Im still working as a Pilates & Yoga instructor and I believe my life’s purpose is to teach and share happiness with others. How did you become an Innermost Insider and what’s your goal as an ambassador for the brand? I became an Innermost insider back in February 2021! This was around the time I won an Innermost instagram competition. After receiving a selection of their products I was hooked. I love that the supplements have such great additional ingredients and taste amazing. I love being an Innermost ambassador and being part of such a lovely community. My goal is to share with my followers the constant education of health and wellness that Innermost shares. View this post on Instagram A post shared by georgia║health & happiness ❋ (@georgiafayefitness) Our topic of the month is relaxation. How do you wind down and relax after a busy day? Things I typically enjoy doing to wind down would be a slow yoga practice, meditation, reading or a walk with a podcast. I also never underestimate how relaxing and refreshing a shower and self-care session can be. I love to wash my hair, put on a face mask, paint my nails and maybe put on a little fake tan. Do you think stress plays a part in your ability to relax? Absolutely! But if we don’t have the time to relax, the stress in our lives will only build up. My best tips to be able to give yourself the time to switch off would be to schedule it in! Put aside an hour either in the morning or evening for you to relax. Make this non-negotiable - if it’s been planned into your day it will stop the guilt and guarantee a time period to destress. What do you think the risks are of not relaxing or de-stressing on our minds and bodies? If we are in a constant state of stress we cannot possibly be living our life to the fullest and therefore unable to reach our goals. Relaxation is also a time to be still, reflect and reset. Stopping to look at what we have already achieved, to be proud and destress, ready to restart. Are there times when you struggle to relax? Definitely all days and weeks are different. Work may be playing on my mind or I might be overtired therefore leading to stress build up. View this post on Instagram A post shared by georgia║health & happiness ❋ (@georgiafayefitness) Do you any advice for others who struggle to relax or have burn out? As I said earlier definitely schedule it into your day. But also having a range of things you enjoy doing that are relaxing. Sometimes my mind is too loud to meditate or I’m too tired to do yoga, therefore a walk and a podcast that day may suit me better. I also try not to go on any electronic devices during my relax time. Sometimes social media can become a big distraction and lead you on a journey of endless scrolling that won’t leave you feeling refreshed. What Innermost product(s) have you been loving recently? My all time favourite will always have to be The Health Protein in Vanilla. It’s the best plant based protein I’ve tried and works well in both shakes or my protein pancakes! Georgia, it’s been a pleasure chatting to you! Our final question is ... What’s your innermost desire that you’re hoping comes true this year? Thank you for interviewing me! To be honest I must say I’m currently feeling so so grateful for my new life in Australia, I feel so lucky. I hope to continue on a path of self-discovery and that I’m able to share happiness with as many people as I can along the way. That's a wrap!
