1. What keeps you busy?
Since launching Game Set, my schedule has been pretty packed. I'm married and have two young children, age 6 and 4. I'm also co-charing the fundraising efforts for a charity gala in March. You can most often find me nowadays shuttling my son and daughter between school and activities, hosting pop up shops for Game Set, or at The Soho House on my laptop.
2. How do you practice self-care?
I really love this topic and would say that I had a number of years in which I didn't know what self-care really was. Once I had kids, I began to take notice, but focused a lot on tangible ways to practice. Over the past year, I've changed my mindset a lot around what I consider self-care. In the past I would have said, going to the gym or sneaking away for a massage or manicure, which I totally still do. However, today I would say that I also consider inward ways to practice, like nurturing only positive relationships, saying 'no' more often when something doesn't feel right, and really diving head first into my passions.
3. How do you keep active?
I enjoy changing up my workouts from day to day - It's the only way I can stay motivated! On any given week I may do pilates, a HIIT class, an outdoor run, ride the Peloton bike, or play tennis.
