“I love journaling. Writing things down and sketching helps me develop my thoughts, recall conversations I’ve had, and keeps me organized. It also helps me stay off of my phone.”

"Carving out me time is crucial to my mental wellness. I may fill it with a Peloton ride, a walk in the park, or a couple of glasses of wine - the important thing is I control this time, and that’s what keeps me grounded and motivated."
