What does “Your Best You” mean to you?
To me it means focusing on my own journey and not giving my energy to compare my life to others on the internet. My favorite way to practice this is minimizing screen time in the morning and evening to ensure I start and end my day honoring my own energy and not letting others interfere with my wellness journey.
How do you look after your mental health?
Daily mental health practices such as yoga, meditation, nourishing my mind and body with whole foods, taking walks / going outside for fresh air, spreading mental health awareness online, limiting my screen time, and keeping my personal environment neat and tidy.
Favorite form of self care?
Taking walks with my pup, yoga, and drinking matcha instead of coffee for my morning caffeine.
What’s your go-to feel-good workout?
A sweaty weight training circuit!
Who inspires you to become Your Best You?
My father. For as long as I can remember, he has been a huge advocate for physical well-being in my life through his actions and words. This has translated into my passion for improving upon and sharing my wellness journey.
If you could share one message with the Lane Eight community, what would it be?
Focusing on yourself is the greatest thing you could ever do for your mind, body, and soul. Aligning with what you feel most yourself doing and not letting what others are doing influence your decisions is a super power!
