What do you do to look, or feel, better when you have one minute?
Take a deep breath and smile!!

Coffee and sparkling water.

What does “good health” mean to you?
Physical AND mental well being— the mental aspect is just as, if not even more, important.

What’s something that you recently added to your routine?
I recently started platelet-rich plasma treatments for my genetically thinning hair. (Thanks, Dad!) I have had three treatments now, and my hairstylist can not believe how much thicker and longer my hair is. So exciting!

How does looking good relate to feeling good?
Feeling like we look our best can lead to increased self-confidence, a more positive attitude, and greater overall happiness.

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
I try to break the tasks into smaller, achievable goals, organize/prioritize and execute. Checklists also help a lot.

Do you think it is vain to care about how you look?
Not unless taken to an extreme. Taking care of yourself, which includes looking your best, is both healthy and natural.

Describe a self-care trend that you hate:
Facebook posting showing a “perfect” meal, vacation, life, etc. Perfect doesn’t exist and I feel it pressures women especially to overwhelm themselves with expectations of perfectionism.

How do you make healthy habits stick?
In the past, I’ve fallen into the trap of trying to make big, sweeping changes all at once, and those changes never lasted. For me, it’s easier to stick to small, daily, consistent actions and choices. I find it’s easier to add small things that over time, produce big results rather than trying to change too much all at once.

What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
In Chinese medicine, we talk a lot about prevention as the best medicine and I take active steps to avoid becoming overwhelmed in the first place. As I’ve gotten older, I try to only say “yes” to only those things that support my values, priorities and goals. Of course, that’s easier said than done! So, when I do become overwhelmed, I get acupuncture to calm my mind so I can think more clearly and work my way through the challenge more easily.

What’s your favorite way to exercise?
I love walking— especially in the woods. It gets my heart rate up and it clears my mind.

How do you make sure to exercise your mind?
I read constantly— everything from Chinese medicine textbooks, to novels, inspirational books, and poetry.
