Do you have a favourite way to start the day?
YES! Getting outside and having a walk, it helps me to focus my attention to the process of nature and ‘why I am here’, which always sets me up for a better day. By doing this I have really noticed an increased appreciation for the seasons and the world around me – which helps me feel connected to myself and all beings.
How do you stay focused and motivated throughout the day?
I love what I do and being busy keeps me motivated!
Which works best for you – adhering to a strict schedule or letting the day unfold freely?
It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I like a balance of the two! I always have various meetings, clients and time allocated to make the crystal bracelets I sell but I rarely jam pack my calendar hour by hour as I need the mental ‘space’ to keep my energy on point.
Have you been integrating movement to your day? If so, what kinds of exercise have you enjoyed practising at home?
Yes I have, its one of my most important acts of self-care towards my mental health so I have to move at the start of the day! I’ll do my walk and then either I’ll do some pilates or perhaps go for a bike ride — the Boris bikes have become my new friend during lockdown!
What is the favourite thing you are reading right now?
I’ve actually just finished Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, it’s a beautiful book.
