Origins to Art
It all started seven months ago. I was an executive with Origins and the Estee Lauder Corporation; hopping from one airplane to the next, crisscrossing time zones and hardly getting enough sleep. If you’re working for a living you can probably identify with this and how hard it is to balance a social and family life without feeling like a ping pong ball.
This combination was constantly fatiguing me as I would have to arrive on location with a smile on my face, ready to motivate, educate & lead 50+ employees then work with the clients too. To say the least my life was challenging and keeping stress in check became part of my life’s everyday diet.
It wasn’t until Origins developed a wonderful new skin care collection called Youthtopia that I began hearing about Rhodiola rosea. Just before Origins launched the product we were each given a bottle of Ameriden’s Rhodiola rosea product called Rosavin Plus. It was first on the market in the US and well researched by doctors Richard P. Brown & Patricia Gerbarg who had used it in their medical case studies for over five years. My life was about to change for the better! I have to admit, I was skeptical.
Soon all of us at Origins were experiencing the wonderful effects of this adaptive herb both physically & mentally. Wow! What a difference it made! Rosavin Plus became my secret stress buster and I still use it to this very day.
Like so many, I became confident that life would continue as usual until I was faced with a work change brought on by the times we live in. Origins had been my life for 9 years. Little did I know the change in work would allow me to become the artist I was always meant to be.
Today I am an entrepreneur, owning a fine art and portrait photography company called Equinox Photo, based in Fallbrook, California. I balance my work with riding & training my young horses. Part of my photo client base consists of the equestrian community and I am once again involved in traveling to shows and maneuvering around 1200 pound horses with riders on challenging courses to get those prestigious shots. What a great career change, but not without some adjustments.
Like many artists, I found myself most creative late at night. The switch in professions caused me to experience fatigue in a whole different way, especially when I often have to work extremely long days. It was then that I decided to try another Ameriden product called EZ energy, which still contained my secret ingredient (Rhodiola rosea) plus four other Adaptogens. After the first day I felt like the energizer bunny, it gave me the extra stamina and boost my body needed and to be completely honest I became more focused and ready for anything my new career threw my way.
My stamina increased so much that my husband who was training for a triathlon, took notice and gave it a try hoping to boost his workout level. Not only did his workouts improve, but also his recovery time dropped with better results. EZ Energy came through for both of us.
I love EZ Energy because it does not give me the usual jitters that come with so many energy supplements on the market. This is essential for me since a steady hand, clear mind, & quick reaction time are a must in fine art photography! We usually shoot on outside locations, which involve hauling heavy and sometimes bulky equipment to beautiful and remote places like cliffs or isolated beaches. You’ll find me frequently in the water, all for the sake of art, but no worries I still take my secrets with me. Rosavin Plus & EZ Energy should be in every professional’s bag!
