Happy International Women’s Day! This year, we’re all about celebrating ‘everyday superwomen’ around the world. We’re talking about the women constantly juggling work and family, who have become experts in mulitasking and putting others first. Well, to those women, we’d like to say that it’s time to re-prioritise yourselves. Take a spa break. Start your own blog. Today is the perfect day to feel empowered! To help, we’ve come up with a list of 9 inspiring women on Instagram, who remind us that following our dreams is no longer a male-only reality.
Kate Hudson (@katehudson):
Fabletics co-founder, Kate Hudson inspires us on so many levels. Not only has she taught us the true meaning of becoming ‘body smart’, through her work with countless mind-body practitioners and positive psychologists, but she has also taught us that achieving a state of harmony or balance is an on-going process. As a mum to two boys and sought-after Hollywood actress, she is our office role model – bold, seemingly effortless and down-to-earth. We can’t wait to get our hands on her new advice-packed book, Pretty Happy!
Kayla Itsines (@Kayla_Itsines):
Australian fitness instructor Kayla Itsines is a true Instragram hit! Her Bikini Body Guides have helped many women get into shape, as she likes to communicate to her 4.6m followers (wow!) Her fans’ incredible transformations are truly inspiring. Warning: your abs might feel a bit envious!
