20 health experts are writing in the Del Ray Wellness District’s new blog

The wellness-related businesses in Del Ray are bottling their creative energies into a new blog.

Every Wednesday morning, the Wellness District Blog will publish two new posts to help folks navigate through the fog of stressful times. It officially launched at a glitzy outdoor party on Wednesday night in Del Ray.

The blog has 20 local wellness expert writers, and is the brainchild of Sara VanderGoot, the owner of the Mind The Mat Pilates & Yoga.

“I love to write, and I love to read, and I love wellness,” VanderGoot said. “Writing is the way to show the depth of what we all do. Not everyone gets to be right in front of us to see all of the aspects of wellness that we focus on.”

VanderGoot has a Master’s degree in creative writing, is working on a memoir and says she loves to edit other people’s work.

Topics covered so far include fighting stress with exercise, tips on getting kids to sleep earlier, and how to get into a routine now that school is back in session.

Dr. Lauren Fisherco-owner of Del Ray Psych and Wellness, is one of the bloggers.

“My theme will be on letting go,” she said. “I always talk about letting go of things that are holding you back. We often hold onto a lot more than we need to, and most people aren’t aware of what they’re carrying.”
