Meditate, listen to a business podcast, enjoy a cup of tea, then hit emails.
The first thing I do after work:
Exercise. I love to cycle!
Especially during COVID, I typically cook. I don't have a set time, but I try to start around 6:30 p.m. every evening.
I love to read to escape my mental to-do lists. I accompany my reading by turning on my oil diffuser, spa music, and candles. It sets the best energy in my mediation room. After reading, I'll take some time to reflect on the day and pray over my family.
Self-care guilty pleasure:
Workday self-care hack:
How do you define self-care?
I define self care as a method to truly quiet the mind and allow oneself to be still in mind, body and spirit.
Favorite childhood toy or hobby:
I was an athlete as a child and later went on to be a softball collegiate athlete. It taught me the importance of a strong work ethic, persistence, and perseverance. I now integrate these in my life personally and professionally.
