Helen Tite is also known as the Wellness Anarchist. Originally named Fitness Anarchist back in the day when she was a fitness athlete and Fitness Club Owner. Known because she was never publicly afraid to stand up for her causes in spite of sometimes being seen as a Marmite Creature. NOTE for those that are reading this beyond the UK. Marmite is a divisive yeast extract that people love or hate. There is no middle ground. Helen is a love it or hate it character and in the past that used to hurt her like mad. These days it is not a barrier to her public speaking, presenting and businesses that she runs. She just talks frankly and dials up the noise as it needs to be heard.
She is the owner of iCareiMove
Helen Tite is also the Founder of our very own iCareiMove. Truth be told, The Wellness Anarchist was born from Helen going back to school to learn how to build a wordpress website, needing a new website to build and that is how The Wellness Anarchist went live.
Because of the Marmite effect, some book Helen to talk under her original company Core Health Consultancy and others book her under The Wellness Anarchist.
It’s The Same Thing
So whether it is iCareiMove or The Wellness Anarchist it is actually the same thing. Helen Tite just swears more freely under her own brand. She can’t help it, she just gets passionate and frustrated about some subjects and it is normally around supporting others. Her dear friend and colleague Pat Taylor frequently tuts and gets grumpy at Helen’s sweariness.
Since the start of lockdown, Helen has volunteered her media self to ChaosTV. She can be found each weekday at 12.10, talking about health and wellbeing and then delivers a short innovative “fitness fifteen”. Demonstrating that you need to keep moving and you don’t need much space or equipment, you just need to keep moving. She is also running Elixir Live On-line Classes.
Her Mantra – Everybody Can Move
For a while, Helen attempted to keep Wellness Anarchist apart from iCareiMove, but they naturally compliment each other. The work collides as even though the business focuses on ageing greatly and older people, it also targets those who work in the care and health sectors. She is frequently heard talking about staying strong and resilient in the workforce, to be able to be pensionable at 68! Yes 68, and probably older by the time some of you get there.
Confused with the message?
The message is wellness. Maybe the COVID-19 has reinforced a message of being strong, resilient and as healthy as possible. We do not know why this awful virus is taking so many lives. It has reinforced how important it is to be surrounded by positive people whether that is safe distancing or using Zoom. Humankind needs people to be more… More supportive, more of the kindness, more of the Claps at night, more care for each other, more love.
It is all so stressful. Gratitude and love is all we have. We have each other. We have to continue to reach out and connect. To continue to support and help where we can. That is why you are seeing Helen’s face everywhere. She wants to help you keep strong and fighting. Keeping up your mental wellness levels and talking frankly about feelings.
This is not a time for stiff upper lip
This is a time for talking, sharing feelings and supporting each other. The Wellness Anarchist is working with others to produce exercise films, meditation audios and lots of falls prevention ideas to keep you going at home. It’s never silly to think strange things. It’s not unusual to have disturbed sleep right now. It is good to talk, laugh and share. That is the beauty of phoning each other, responding to messages on social media and even click the links to Zoom calls. Talk and keep talking and you might need to have a little swear too.
