General overview of a typical day: Wake up around 5am, first thing is always a stretch regimen to get the blood flowing and the body moving. I start work on my business around 6, break for a coffee walk at 9 and a light breakfast. Then it’s more work, meetings, virtual facilitations until around 3pm. Working East Coast hours on the West Coast means I can get an outdoor adventure in – hiking, biking or tennis before an early dinner with my husband, Max. I try to practice the 16:8 intermittent fasting, which is much easier to do on the West Coast for some reason… And then I usually watch an episode (current faves: Schitt’s Creek, The Good Place, Mandalorian) and then read before bed. Currently reading Shantaram on a recommendation from a friend – it’s A+.

General overview of a typical day: No day is the same, which I like about my job, but now that we’re all WFH, it’s getting a little more uniform. I always start my day with coffee and writing a gratitude list on my phone and I’m a recent Peloton convert to end the day (after holding out for so long to join the bandwagon!)
