“Not only is Ruby super inspiring, but I can also really relate to her ‘Sober Curious’ journey so much, as I’ve been on one myself! And I can honestly say that after not drinking for over two years now, I do feel that I’m a lot healthier, I sleep better and am more focused and present in my everyday life. Which is so important to me.” Kristina Karlsson

“What I really loved about chatting to Ruby was that everything she spoke about really came back to the idea of ‘living your best life’ and the importance of asking yourself ‘what type of life do you want to live?’ ” Kristina Karlsson
