At SOCIAL, we love supporting motivated, passionate, and career-driven women! This month we had the pleasure of talking with New York blogger, Emily Hein. Aside from being a blogger, Emily also creates beautiful pieces of abstract art and works as a waitress (talk about hard-working!!) She is obsessed with healthy living, creating, and spending time with her loved ones! Staying balanced, positive, and driven are some of the many reasons Emily makes a perfect SOCIAL Babe!
What does a typical day in your life look like?
I start my day with a cup of coffee right before I work out. After I workout and get ready, I’ll spend time writing blog posts, and sending/responding to emails. On days where I don’t have a scheduled blog post, I brainstorm and shoot content. In-between all that good stuff, I take breaks to spend time with my two dachshunds (Hank and Sino). I usually work until about 4 and then, five nights out of the week, I waitress.
How do you maintain balance in your life?
I maintain balance by doing things that bring me joy. I like sticking to a strict diet and work life, but make sure I squeeze in time to enjoy a glass of wine with my boyfriend, family, and/or friends at least once a week.
What are your passions and what inspires you to pursue them?
I’m passionate about creating. Whether that means content to share with my followers or creating abstract paintings! I studied art in college, so I knew once I graduated I needed to do something where I could use my creativity. I’ve always wanted to love what I do in terms of a career. So before I graduated college I created my blog and knew it was something I wanted to develop and pursue after graduation.
What is your favorite health trend?
I love the idea of eating less meat and more of a plant based diet. I don’t think I will ever be a vegetarian or vegan, but I’m currently obsessed with getting lots of nutrient dense veggies into my diet.
How do you stay motivated to live a healthy lifestyle?
What motivates me to live a healthy lifestyle is knowing how good living a healthy lifestyle feels. I love the way I feel when I eat well and workout.
Who is the most inspiring person you follow on Instagram and why?
Kathleen Barnes is the most inspiring person I follow on Instagram. She’s a down to earth and successful blogger. I love her brand and her story; she’s a great representation of what I aspire to be.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself blogging full-time and selling my artwork.
What are some lessons or mottos you have for other women following a similar life/career path as you?
To be patient! And, try not to be so hard on yourself. If you can see yourself becoming successful, you will eventually get there.
What is your favorite flavor of SOCIAL?
My favorite flavor of SOCIAL is strawberry rose!! I love how delicious and refreshing it is!!
When is your favorite thing about SOCIAL?
I love SOCIAL’s mission! I love the idea of creating a drink that we can feel good about drinking. I also love how SOCIAL gives back to Girls on the Run! Anything that inspires and motivates girls to reach their dreams gets the thumbs up from me.
