With the start of 2019, I thought back to 10 years ago, in 2009, when the photo on the left was taken. Looking at this photo made me realize how important it is to remember where I came from and to acknowledge how much growth and wisdom has come in the past decade! It also made me reflect on how important it is to strive for a balance between work and leisure, as I have the tendency to overwork myself at times. Some of the biggest tips for winding down, staying balanced and happy despite my busy schedule are to regularly stretch, get massages and use a Theragun to keep my body feeling healthy, stay hydrated and get out in nature as often as possible!
