Today we’d like to introduce you to Adriana Bachmann.
Hi Adriana, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I’m a corporate communications professional by day and a green lifestyle blogger by night. Having struggled with my mental health since childhood, I began my journey to recovery in 2019. At the beginning of this journey, I became acutely aware that I was missing something very important in my life: spirituality. During my recovery, I reconnected with the earth’s healing power and found spiritual comfort in the idea that we are all connected. Soon after realizing this, I decided to pursue an Eco spirituality Coach certification, hoping to practice mindful eco-therapy techniques with future clients to help in their personal healing journeys. I currently explore the connection between mind, body, and earth on my green lifestyle blog Earth Momma Trainee. Knowing that our planet does so much for our physical and mental health, I am determined to take care of it in return. This idea has drawn me to the sustainability world, along with practicing and promoting sustainable fashion practices.
After learning about the many detrimental impacts the fast fashion industry has on our environment and basic human rights, I am determined to spread awareness far and wide. Currently, I am serving as the VP of Marketing with Arizona Sustainable Fashion Apparel to do just that. I am also training to become an Ambassador for Sustainable Tucson, a local organization whose mission is to build an equitable community in harmony with our natural desert environment that thrives long into the future. As an ambassador, I will work as a community ally towards a greener and more resilient future for our desert home. My ultimate goal is to become a resource for those who are looking to seek healing in the many gifts our planet has to offer, as well as a vocal community advocate for the environment.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Because I struggle with depression and anxiety, there are times where I have gotten incredibly overwhelmed with life’s hardships, and my blog gets put on the back burner for months at a time. When this would happen in the past, I would feel incredibly guilty, making it even harder for me to pick up where I had left off. Now that I’m more mindful of these patterns, I can identify when I’m feeling overwhelmed and make a conscious decision to take a short break to regroup before I just drop off the face of the planet. It also gives me a chance to share what is going on with my readers, explaining how I will use ecotherapy and eco-spirituality techniques to get back to equilibrium. What would generally be a negative experience then becomes something positive for others to learn from!
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a green lifestyle blogger who focuses on the connection between mind, body and earth. I write about how ecospirituality and mindfulness-based ecotherapy can help heal the mind, how wholesome foods and natural remedies can heal the body, and how we can take care of Mother Earth in return by fighting climate change and participating in environmental advocacy. I specialize in something I like to call green-care, a form of self-love and self-care that incorporates Mother Earth. On my Patreon page, I share more information about green-care with my supportive patrons and hope to launch an Ecospirituality coaching program within the next year! Something that sets me apart from others is my willingness to share my mental health history and personal struggles with the masses and how ecotherapy and ecospirituality has been instrumental in my healing journey. I fully embraced ecospirituality during my eating disorder recovery program two years ago, and the experience has been life-changing. If sharing my experience helps others, then why keep it all to myself?
How do you define success?
Three years ago, I would have defined success as an executive title at a prominent company, a six-figure salary and a framed picture of a smiling family propped on a mahogany wood desk at work. Now, I define success as knowing that your life is already filled with abundance. Recognizing this means you feel a sense of gratitude for everything life has given you, and if you are feeling this way, then you are experiencing success.
