THE WELLBEING STORE: FLEUR MARKS
Wellbeing - something that should be a primary focus in our day to day lives, but definitely gets put on the back-burner more often than not. If you're in the Byron Bay area and are in need of some much-needed grounding or know someone who does, the Wellbeing Store might be just what you've been looking for. The store offers a premium destination for wellbeing gifting as well as workshops - so whether it's the tools or the skills you're in search of, all bases are covered.
“Knowing firsthand the impact of building small, positive habits into your daily life I decided to create The Wellbeing Store - A premium collection of wellbeing products and wellbeing kits to kick start your wellbeing journey,” says Fleur.
The Wellbeing Store offers a premium destination for wellbeing gifting as well as wellbeing workshops. Founded by the once invincible, overachieving, workaholic and now chronically ill Fleur Marks, The Wellbeing Store has been created as Fleur’s response to make her illness her greatest gift and encourage people to nurture their wellbeing. Over the last 10 years, Fleur has battled to stay alive with a chronic rare non-curable autoimmune disease, Sarcoidosis - a disease that has spread to multiple organs; her lungs, eyes, lymph nodes, central nervous system, and brain. Fleur has undergone 23 rounds of chemotherapy, over 118 immune suppression infusions, thousands of steroids and countless hospital stays to manage her disease but unfortunately, all treatment options have been
exhausted. On top of this, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2018. Fleur is determined to not let her illnesses define her. Rather, she has become passionate about inspiring people to live their life to the fullest often reminding those around her that if you don’t have your health, you have nothing. She has led significant change in corporate life as a Wellbeing expert, trainer, and Leadership Coach, implementing wellbeing programs across multiple companies as well as sharing her story to ‘wake people’ up to their invincibility.
“Given my personal and corporate wellbeing experience, I am equipped with the knowledge to know what is actually useful to gift people experiencing wellbeing challenges in their lives – whether it be mastering sleep or when life stuff happens, and they may find themselves facing chemo...So I have curated a range of wellbeing gifts that go beyond the usual flowers and show real thoughtfulness,” continues Fleur.
The Wellbeing Store is soon to expand its online offering, with the launch of a physical store Habitat in Byron Bay opening Saturday 5th December. Styled by Jason Grant, The Wellbeing Store offers a premium destination for wellbeing gifting for yourself or loved ones in a calm, welcoming, and creative space where Fleur will also run workshops for locals or visitors.
