This week we got together with Devin Mayhew, one of Sun Chaser's first tasters. Devin gives the scoop on what drinking Sun Chaser is really like and shares how she chases her days through the natural world of plants!
What does being a Sun Chaser mean to you?
Devin: Being a Sun Chaser means starting the day early for me and my favorite mornings usually involve a sunrise. It feels special and productive when I’m up before the rest of the world. I love spending as much time outside as I can, to really soak up all the vitamin D. I’m from the desert and I come alive when I’m in the sun.
As one of Sun Chaser’s first tasters, what would you tell people trying it for the first time?
Devin: It’s sooo yummy and I felt fantastic both during the fun and afterwards! Best idea ever! I was surprised by how much I felt it!
How do you chase your days? Especially with social distancing measures making it harder to connect with friends and take big adventures?
Devin: I chase my days by spending a lot of time still in the sun, just in the comfort of my backyard and school garden. Slowing down, sitting with the plants, making medicine, reading, yoga, drinking water and sitting with myself a lot.
Why would you drink Sun Chaser?
Devin: Feeling good and honoring health is so important to be able to appreciate all aspects of my life. Waking up early, spending the day in the garden, learning, pushing myself, even relaxing. These are all things that I would never want to sacrifice because I'm too tired or feeling less-than. On the flip side, I still love getting together with friends to let loose. So for me, Sun Chaser bridges that gap.
