Morning: Wake up, give gratitude for the day. Self care, center my mind. Have a light breakfast with juice, yogurt and fruit, preparing my body for the day. Prepare my to-do lists.

Work: Work on my upstairs renovation project to create a space for guests to stay above the restaurant. Cook in the kitchen. Interact with customers.

Evening: Go home, play with my puppy and kitty. Decide if I’m making dinner or going out with my husband.

“Focus on yourself and your health. Stay calm through meditation and breathing exercises that help to relax your body. Find your peace. Don’t wait for others to help you. As women, we need to take the initiative on our own.”
