Reboot your life by standing in your truth
Before creating the 22Reboot program, Ella Magers had a secret: She was struggling with an eating disorder. After studying nutrition and competing as a bodybuilder, Ella found herself controlling everything she consumed. She wanted to become the perfect vegan, a shining example of a plant-based lifestyle, and a beacon of hope for those struggling to break away from their animal-centric diets. But perfectionism had a price.
Ella’s desire for excellence spiraled into shame and isolation as she followed a restrictive diet, binge eating alone after bodybuilding competitions.
Finally, she took brave and transformative action. Sick and tired of degrading herself, she frantically penned a blog post telling the world what she was going through. Holding her cursor over the publish button, she felt a wave of freedom – She felt like she was standing in her truth for the first time in forever.
Create what the world needs
Ella decided to reboot her identity – embracing the reality that she is a perfectly imperfect human being. She realized that by forcing herself into an impossible mold, she was setting an impossible example. Ella decided that her program needed to reflect her own inner transformation.
She went back to school and earned her Master’s degree in Social Work in order to deepen her skills as a coach and mentor. 22Reboot was redesigned to honor the four essential components of a holistically healthy lifestyle: Nutrition, movement, mindfulness and sleep.
Detox from your addiction to doing
Later, things were going well in Ella’s businesses – but she was exhausted. She was feeling burnt out and lackluster. As entrepreneurs, it can be tempting to ride the wave of success and abandon self-care completely – but Ella knew better!
Feeling out of touch spiritually and creatively, she embarked on a journey to reconnect with herself. She turned off her phone, powered off her laptop and even stopped eating flavorful foods during a wellness retreat in Peru. With zero emails, no texts, no blue light and no addictive foods, she was able to hear her own intuitive voice again.
Upon returning from her voyage, Ella Magers was more inspired than she had ever been! Doing “nothing” gave Ella her mission back and reminded her of what she cares about most: People, animals, and the planet.
Now, she shares her mission with us and inspires us to reboot our lives, whatever it takes.
“I was a perfectionist – I wanted to be a shining example. I wanted people to come up to me and ask me about what I was doing, so that I could share about plant-based eating – which was not well known or well received at the time. I put a lot of pressure on myself. I knew a lot about nutrition and I was very restrictive with my food. I would binge at night sometimes! I won first place in bodybuilding competitions. But I was suffering inside.”
“It took a really long time to be able to say hey – It’s okay that you’re not perfect. People are not going to respect you less because you’re sharing. I created a blog post where I put it all out there. I put my clicker on the publish button and I was like, it’s time to be proud of myself. I can’t do that if I keep hiding. It was a huge moment for me.”
“When I got to that place of just loving, appreciating and respecting myself, my whole program changed. And that was a big turning point.”
“Just because you have a thought, doesn’t make it true. We believe these thoughts and beliefs are truth but they’re not even ours! They were given to us. They were programmed into us when we were children. It really limits us. It limits our health, ability to succeed in our lives and our businesses.”
“I have a lot of trust in the universe. I work on connecting with my being, passion and mission in life.”
“Success is freedom. It’s about fulfilling my mission to help other people, animals and the planet. The money is a side effect, and it allows me freedom as well. I make money to donate to animal sanctuaries and donate to causes that I care about.”
“We have intrinsic value, just for being on this earth. We don’t have to be doing to be worthy of being. That’s hard for entrepreneurs and professionals who are dedicated.”
