Every day is women’s day in our book, but as today is officially International Women’s Day – and with all the year’s happenings – we’re feeling a little extra inspired.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most innovative female voices across many different industries – all in the name of living well: from brand founders and fitness gurus to A-list actresses and cultural influencers. We’re grateful to be surrounded by a community of so many powerfully inspired personalities.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re sharing the daily mantras from some of our favorite recent interviews. Scroll through and pass along to the amazing women in your life…

— Guru Jagat, Kundalini teacher + women’s leader
“My personal mission statement is, “Be an infectious light of love and joy, to celebrate the little things and inspire others to embrace their true essence.”— Julianne Hough, dancer + actress
“A flower doesn’t think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms.”— Jen Atkin, celebrity hair stylist
“You get back what you put in – the more love, time and effort you put into anything in your life, the more you’ll get back.”— Ella Mills, founder of Deliciously Ella
Just do it. Waking up and working out sucks for everyone.
— Hannah Bronfman, founder of HBFIT
“Be the change you want to see.”—Lauren Roxburgh, fascia and alignment expert
“Embrace joy. Work can be very stressful, stealing our joy and the ability to be present right where we are.
I try to stop and look around me, practicing thankfulness for the privilege to work on what I love and the wonderful people doing it with me. When I’m grateful, I feel time slow down.”— Sarah Dubbeldan, Editor of Darling Magazine
“Self-care is healthcare.”— Denise Vasi , actress + founder of Maed
“Don’t sweat the small stuff.”— Elle Macpherson, model + founder of Welle Co
“Breathe.”— Garance Dore, founder of Atelier Doré
“It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. For me this means, it’s all in the being…not the doing. If that doesn’t make sense, just go back to Shakespeare’s most famous line, “To be or not to be: that is the question.”— Daniella Hunter, founder of The Real Coconut

“Overcome your fears. Whatever you fear, do it. Be open to trying new things and things that scare you.”— Tata Harper, skincare pioneer
“Stay true. We experience a lot of exterior and industry pressure to do certain things, or conform to certain standards. Although there is an amount of this that’s necessary, we find it important to stay true to our goals, our mission, and to be unique (which often involves listening to our guts rather than critics).”— Katie Searle-Williams, co-founder of Kinfolk Magazine
“Live life one breath at a time.”— Koya Webb, yogi
“Good things happen to those who hustle. (Anaïs Nin)”— Nitsa Citrine, creative director of Sun Potion
“Slow down, be open, stay present.”— Camille Styles, lifestyle blogger

Inspire and always be inspired.
“And in the end
the love you take
is equal to the love you make (Paul McCartney lyrics)
Ladt time I looked, it was Ghandi who spoke about being the change in the world you’d like to see. So my mantra is ‘Be truthful, acknowledge the sources of your wisdom & the talents of others. Don’t steal.’
I love women supporting other women with their truth. Thank you for this waterfall of inspiration and collective empowerment. We’ve got this. It is a new day, a true day. I am amazed as I watch the world transform, and see the upheaval as it catalyzes love to bring surrender, to end racism, ageism, separation of grief and love, despair over Self while the collective calls for more love. Pouring my love into life now, asking where I can serve, how to serve only the highest good in all my relations and actions. I am grateful I am here with you all.
