Welcome to Wellness with Linds.
the mindful freelancer.
I’m Lindsay, a mindful freelancer who loves simplifying health, living wholeheartedly, and eating real food.
I'm a whole mix of everything (hint: enneagram 3). I'm not great at keeping an aesthetic theme going on my Instagram, I'm one of the clumsiest people I know, and I struggle with the same problems each and every day of my life. I thrive off of quality time and spending time with those that I love.
I love productivity, moderation, and to-do lists. As a natural-born perfectionist with workaholic tendencies, my life has not always looked the way it does today. After a lot of serious crashes and burns health-wise, I learned the importance of moderation in the hustle, and am doing all I can to share that here.
While Wellness with Linds is a huge (and passionate) part of my life, my full-time job is running Freckle Studio as creative director. Think lots of phone calls, ideation, and content creation. Feel free to send me a message if you ever have any questions relating to this (or anything else!).
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging years ago, long before it was cool, and at a time where I was just considered strange — ha, no joke I vividly remember one of my best friends always telling me I was a weirdo (in a loving way ofc).
You can find a post about my hot and cold relationship with blogging here.
How did you get into this niche?
I originally started my Instagram/blog in order to document non-inflammatory meals I was making and to share my experience with a few autoimmune diseases I have. I deleted the account several times over the years, getting frustrated with my health and feeling too pressured to share the downs that come with autoimmune issues. After years of fighting, I finally found a happy medium in my space where I feel at home with what I am sharing.

What do you use to photograph?
Noting too fancy, just mainly my iPhone 8+. I used to have a pretty nice canon with a range of lenses but when I moved to D.C. after college someone broke into my car and stole my camera and my four lenses. Since then I have stuck to my iPhone, and occasionally have used my boyfriends Sony a7!
Where do you live?
I currently live in Washington, D.C. It’s one of my favorite cities in the U.S. and I truly love every part of living here.
If you follow me on social media, then you know I tend to bounce around quick a bit. I have a wandering soul and love moving around. After my lease is up in D.C. I hope to move to Europe and spend as long as possible traveling throughout the countries there.
What do you do for work?
I own a creative studio, and have deemed myself a content creator! I’ve been trying to come up with a new title for months because I feel like everyone and their cousin is a “content creator” these days.
So you wanna hear my story?
Unlike many stories, there's no introduction to mine. I mean maybe we could pan the camera to the hospital room where I was born incredibly sick, and immediately pumped with antibiotics. Or we could skip to the part in middle school where I felt so defeated at a young age, spending afternoons in hospitals instead of on the soccer field. Or we could go to high school when I had to quit sports because my young body didn’t have the energy to play.
It’s been a long road from here to now. It hasn’t been easy at times, and it’s definitely been incredibly trying and hard, but it’s what has gotten me to where I am now.
Most of the things you will see on this blog don’t include things that I used to battle with, like autoimmune diseases, hormone imbalances, adrenal fatigue, depression, and a number of other things I have lived in and out of the past decade of my life. But every once in awhile, when I feel the timing is right, I’ll share more about the section of my life that got me to where I am now.
