More about Jackie Mirkopoulos:
Jackie Mirkopoulos is the co-founder of Evolve Holistic and its sub-brand The Intuitarian Lifestyle™. Over the years, through the immense amount of knowledge she has acquired through the beautiful teachers + healers + friends + family + people she’s met travelling + the people that are fleeting in her life – all the inspiring souls she has learned from, Jackie has truly realized what is means to manifest what you already know. To embrace your intuition – to let your senses guide you.
The live an Inutitarian Lifestyle™ you must leverage what you have learned from all those beautiful teachers in your life. Look within yourself + find what works for you. Even if that looks different to someone else – it’s okay. We are all different + unique beings. All with different body types, genetics, features, interests, needs and stories – not one of us are the same.
After years of trying different diets and trying various wellness fads – Jackie has learned what works for her body. She listens to what it is telling her. She doesn’t follow a certain pattern or philosophy. She ensures she is filling her body with goodness. Chemical free ingredients and having a diet that is nourishing (which for her is a clean + healthy + seasonal diet.) When she needs a treat (not a cheat! ) she has one, guilt free! By listening to what her body is telling her, she has become more balanced than ever before. Making the best decisions for herself came with understanding her needs deeply and making lifestyle adjustments that would help her live her best life.
Finding the ultimate self-care plan for yourself comes with trying different methods + finding what truly works for you. It’s important to be mindful of what your body mind and soul is telling you. In a society full of demands and technological advancements, it is important to remember that we are HOMO SAPIENS. We are animals. That have emotions. That benefit from having connections to OTHER HOMO SAPIENS. Part of the disconnect we sometimes feel with ourselves is due to the fact that we do not take enough time to be quiet with our Selves.
Lets go back to the essence of what is to be human. Lets take a minute and pause. Listen to what is happening inside of you, What are your Selves saying to you?
That is where we start our journey into an Intuitarian Lifestyle.
