My Goal of the Day: Identify and complete the most important task on my to do list. I think about what I want to get done that month and how that translates into the single most important item each day. If I am constantly working to complete the most important and essential tasks each week, this will keep me on track to accomplish monthly goals and solves the problem of overcommitting myself.

My Goal of the Day: To practice what we teach at Global Citizen Year: leaving our comfort zones, putting curiosity before judgement, and taking risks that advance equity and inclusion.  

My Tip of the Day: Work-life alignment matters more than work-life balance, and self-care is key to productivity and happiness.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?  I love getting lost in good books, joyful moments with my boys, and the Berkeley hills. In 2000, I stopped out of college and moved to Salvador, Brazil with a backpack, a book of Portuguese verbs and the name of an NGO I hoped to work for (which, it turned out, didn’t exist). The experience of getting lost repeatedly and of forging my way in a new city stretched me in ways that changed who I was, and shaped who I am.

My Deed of the Day: I opened my second yoga studio last month, so there’s lots to do these days. Today, I created a program to mentor new teachers and support their growth at the studios. I’m also curating a retreat to Nicaragua this March, which is so fun to plan!

What should everyone try at least once? Everyone should try our hot pilates class! It’s high-intensity interval training mixed with pilates moves and is intense, energetic and so fun! We bump the music and have a disco ball!

Where do you enjoy getting lost? In the Met. I grew up in New York and love visiting my old friends at the Greco-Roman wing and the Temple of Dendur.

My Action of the Day: My mom was just traveling in Prague with me, but left a few hours ago. Really setting my intention on getting back into the zone after having such an amazing week exploring Europe with her.

My Tip of the Day: On negative thoughts: when you’re going downhill, your first instinct may be to pump the brakes, don’t. It’s the speed that carries you back to the top of the next one.

What do you love most about Your City? For me, this is something that changes often because I’m always traveling. What I’ll say about traveling is this: the cultural differences I’ve experienced escaping my bubble at home never fails to inspire new ideas while also helping me to relate and understand to other people better. I believe that to be my strongest asset as an entrepreneur and I don’t think that skillset gets emphasized enough.

My Thought of the Day: I am love and limitless

What should everyone try at least once? To be honest even when it feels really uncomfortable. As humans we avoid the truth because we down like the feel of confrontation. When I have pushed through that and did so with love it made a huge difference. Next to that it would say eye gazing with someone you really care about. Its amazing!  

Where do you enjoy getting lost? In the woods. There is nothing better for me than taking a hike smelling the trees. It truly feels like god to me.

My Goal of the Day: To serve and inspire as many humans a day that I can all while dropping truth bombs.

My Action of the Day: Creation. Whether it is video content that will inspire, a blog that will teach,  a Podcast that will wake people up or music that creates emotion. Creation makes my soul become tangible and palpable.

12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal? On the days I eat lunch I really love some fresh sashimi with an avocado salad topped with M.C.T. oil. Usually though I cook for myself so a normal lunch to me is 6 oz of grass fed beef with 1 cup of  fermented Kimchi or sauerkraut, maybe a few cups of greens like Brussels sprouts or asparagus. I am so plain but it works for me. Less to think about so I can focus on the big stuff. If I had to choose a lunch spot that makes my tummy happy I would say the Capital Grille. I would get a 6 oz. filet mignon with a wedge salad.
