Following your goals and being methodical but slowing down and enjoying life with the people you love.

Be disciplined, and take good care of your skin. Never skip your morning or nighttime routine, and find healthy skincare brands that nourish your skin.

What aspect of your wellbeing do you struggle with the most, or would most like to improve?

Pre-COVID, I wasn’t taking good care of myself. My immune system was compromised. This year forced me to slow down and truly understand the capabilities of my body and mind. Now, my thoughts are clearer, and my body is stronger. When things get back to a new normal, I plan on adapting a slower pace to nurture my overall wellbeing.
