Throughout my life, especially in the last few years I have found immense passion in cooking delicious healthy food and seeing my body change through diet and exercise. Recently I have discovered mindfulness and meditation practices and I want to share these techniques with you to help you reduce stress and bring about inner calm. I feel like this gives my space a holistic feel nourishing your mind, body and soul.
Near the end of 2014 I started to record my fitness progress and healthy recipes through social media as a way to motivate myself to ‘stick to the program’. I found that it really helped me stay on track and in turn I gained a few followers. I started to crave a bigger space to record my journey so naturally SophieBenbow.com was born in early 2016. Later on in 2016 I travelled to Bhutan where I underwent a ‘spiritual’ transformation and I immersed myself in the practices I learnt there. Such as living in the present moment, accepting myself and my surroundings and nurturing my need to feel happy and contented with who I am and where I get to live (earth) every day 🙂
Born in the UK on the Welsh border I’m a country girl at heart and avid animal lover. I grew up horse riding, bike riding, being outside and generally having an appreciation for nature and its surroundings.
I am now lucky enough to call Sydney, Australia my home where I am constantly inspired by health, fitness and wellbeing. I am so grateful for my followers so far and I hope you continue to follow my health, fitness and mindfulness journey with inspiration.
