Sophie Jaffe is a Los Angeles-based health and wellness expert and the founder of Philosophie, a superfood company that offers products and cleanses made of whole, live, nutrient-rich foods. She’s also mom of 3, including two boys and a new baby girl, Noa. Sophie’s Instagram feed is enough to make anyone believe true happiness is real; Sophie is equal parts candid and inspiring, never one to sugarcoat (take a listen to her podcast) while finding the beauty in, quite literally, everything.
We launched this new series, The SURVIVAList, to get an inside look at the products, routines, books, podcasts, foods, and rituals are helping our most favorite mamas get by. We’re kicking it off with Sophie and could not be more thrilled. We’ll let her take it from here:
As a wife, entrepreneur, wellness influencer and mindful + active mama of three, life can get pretty crazy, to say the least. Without my crazy awesome support system of beautiful humans that surround me on a daily basis AND my day-to-day must haves I honestly could not make it through a single day.
I’m not afraid to depend on things that make my life 10x easier. If it works then it works! I’ve been able to tap so deeply into my intuition that I immediately know what is enhancing my life or was is hindering it. These are the most dependable products and apps that keep me grounded, centered and balanced.
I’m so honored to be a mama to the newest addition to our family, Noa. Our perfect little babe has taught me so much and I still can’t believe that she’s here. Showing her what this life is all about and giving her all she needs so she grows up happy, healthy and inspired is my greatest joy. Though I couldn’t get by without a bit of help!!
