At Rae, our community is the reason we exist. That’s why we created ‘Your Shine’—a series highlighting how our community supports their well-being throughout the day. This week, we’re sharing how Michaela Leung shines. 

Rae customer for: Since 2019​

Tell us a little bit about you.

I am a work from home mother who loves all things health and wellness. Professionally I have been a journalist since 2017. I have always had a love for health and wellness and that has grown more since becoming a mother. As a mother, I want to make sure I’m taking care of myself so I can take care of my daughter (Milo). I am currently training to be a yoga teacher and as a personal project, I have a bi-weekly wellness newsletter.​

How do you support your well-being throughout the day?

Working from home and parenting can be difficult. I start my day with supplements, something hot to drink (tea or coffee), and make sure that I am taking breaks so I’m not at my desk all day. I try to get in some movement whether that be stretching, hopping on my exercise bike, or going for a walk with my daughter.​

Why did you start Rae? What are your go-to products? ​

I got an ad for Rae back in 2019 and loved the branding. I decided to give the Vegan Collagen Boost a try and I loved it (especially the minty taste). I took it throughout my pregnancy. Now I am taking the DeStress supplement and Multivitamin.​

What helps you feel shine? ​

Being my best self. When I know I am moving in alignment with my greater purpose and tapping into my higher self I feel like I’m shining!​

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you? ​

Our physical body is just a reflection of what’s going on inside. When we are taking care of ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally, it gives us an outward glow that people can’t help but notice. Taking care of ourselves gives us our shine that people notice, and it can inspire them to take care of themselves too, in turn creating a healing world.
