What does the New Year mean to you?
To me the new year is a time to take stock, set new goals, and break them down into tiny doable steps so you can get excited about checking them off as you get stuff done.
How do you approach the beginning of a new year?
For 2019, it’s getting back to being more active for me. I was quite lazy and ate a lot last year. So I’m thinking in terms of a detox or cleanse and some good old-fashioned sweating.
Describe your wellness routine: skin, fitness, nutrition.
I work out twice a week. I try and fit it in everywhere, whether it’s running to drop my kid off at school, taking the stairs to his class (7 flights up), or jumping rope in my apartment. Skincare is easy on the outside because I take care of my insides with probiotics and gut-restoring drinks. So then on the outside, I use some Joanna Vargas moisturizer and a little mascara. I eat gluten-free and usually limit my carbs to once per day.
What's the best piece of advice you ever got?
Persist on a given course. The path isn’t easy no matter what road you take. If you want to succeed, persist.
How do you deal with stress?
I take a walk. I don’t look at my phone. I exercise with some great music on. I get out and get space.
Finish this sentence: The best thing I do for my wellness every day is _____.
Sleep! I am nothing without it - especially now that I wake up at night to feed my baby. So I go to bed when the kids do and try to be horizontal as much as possible.
