Our blog today comes from our friends at Swoodi. We love this story of one family living ‘The Whole Way Around’. You can see Swoodi‘s amazing swim hoodies at our Melbourne and Sydney Fairs!

Meet Taye, Jodie, Airlie and Mitch. This band of sun kissed, sand loving, mountain climbing Aussies have recently been nick named the ‘Health Coach Family’.  All aboard their Hilux Ute they’re travelling from mountain peak to sandy beach through Australia to spread the word on the importance of good nutrition and wholesome living.

Innovative and inspiring, all they need is a Ute, a tent and a few travel essentials to reach remote destinations.

As a family that has always loved camping and disliked the restrictions of a fixed address, they decided to pack up and set off on an adventure that has come to change more lives than their own.

Mitch and Jodie had independent missions at the start of their journey, but they have shared a common goal. Mitch wanted to tackle the highs and lows of four-wheel-driving in the Australian outback. Jodie has been determined to bring awareness to the importance of food and the effects it has on our bodies.  Check out her concept of  #livingthewholeway. Together on ‘The Whole Way Around’, Mitch and Jodie visit towns to encourage, guide and support people who aspire to reach and maintain a new outlook on life.   Despite the family being on what Jodie calls a ‘constant holiday’ they are continually enriching the lives of those around them.

To even further assist families on ‘Living the Whole Way’ a virtual chat has been created by Jodie to connect like-minded-mummas.   Coffee – Connection – Coaching is an online coffee date to vent the happiness, the frustrations, the struggles and triumphs of being a mother.  It’s a nourishing space for questions to be answered and wholesome living to thrive.

Taye and Airlie have learnt from a young age to go with the flow of life.  They’re active, healthy and motivated kids that are learning on the go.  We’ve been following the adventures of these two Aussie grommets and are proud to see them each sporting a Swoodi Kids Swim Hoodie.  Swoodi emerged from the beaches of Western Australia and as a label catering for active families, we understand the importance of connecting and growing together.  From pool to pond, beach to bath, Swoodi is excited to be a part of #livingthewholeway

Every individual and family at some point feels the pressure to conform. However, we can take so much inspiration from this family that has ‘conformed’ to the style of living with freedom.  They survive on the essentials and thrive on a lifestyle of no restriction.
