What is the lesson in life you live by?
I have two:
All things through grit, grace and gratitude.
"In the end, only three things matter; how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you"
How do you practise self-care / self-love?
That is a very good question that I am aware currently needs some focus in my life. I am doing a lot of work and reading to try and figure out what self compassion looks like for me and how I can then incorporate more of those things into my life.
Why do you think self-care is so important?
At the risk of sounding cliche, because you can't pour from an empty cup and I believe the world deserves the very best version of me. I don't like waste.
How do you ensure you prioritise the time to focus on your wellness journey?
As I have gotten older I have become better at listening to my body and I can feel when I start to let things slip. Because performance is important to me and energy is a very necessary component of that, my body tells me when I need to shift my priority.
Who inspires you the most and why?
My children, they are truly exceptional human beings that have been through a lot more than many and still remain positive, grateful and deeply compassionate every single day.
What is your favourite FRII[S]MITH product and why?
The i am [protected] tinted SPF moisturiser as it makes my skin feel great and also looks dewy and luminous all day. I absolutely love it, I don't use any other foundation!
What does radiance mean to you?
Radiance is a very special quality that can only truly come from within, I think it's our body's way of externally signalling internal health and wellbeing. A radiant person glows and is magnetic and captivating.
