My life balance/stress reliever/fitness commitment: I have worked out for many years and it is very important part of my life. The past 4 years I have added hot yoga and at this time, unfortunately, have eliminated running. My knee can no longer take it! Yoga has been around for more than 5,000 years and does more than burn calories and tone muscles. It’s a total mind-body workout that combines strengthening and stretching poses with deep breathing and meditation or relaxation. It is a great stress reliever and can help you relax and focus while gaining flexibility and strength. It can even also boost your mood. I like it because it requires total focus and for the most part I think of nothing else during the hour I am there. My goal is to go 3 to 4 times a week along with some cycling and weights!

My go-to workplace snack: I always have almonds at my desk, a small handful of almonds gives you almost 25% of your daily needs for magnesium, and more bone-strengthening calcium as an equal amount of cow milk. They are also high in antioxidants, such as vitamin E and selenium. Studies show that almonds may play an important role in preventing colon cancer due to their high fiber content and also help lower negative forms of cholesterol in the bloodstream.

My favorite place to go: My family has been gathering the past 20 years at Diamond Lake in Michigan. My parents first bought there and then my husband and I bought a cottage when our kids were little. It was a great place to come with them and their friends over the years and I look forward to someday doing the same with grandchildren. It has always been a great place for downtime and for years we had no phone and no internet. Times have changed but the downtime is still there even though we now have internet and everyone has their own phone!

I can be impulsive too: The most impulsive thing I did recently is add a dog to the family 2 years ago. I went to Chicago for a funeral of an old friend who passed away. It was a sad weekend. My family had been “hounding” me for dog. My answer had always been that I was allergic and it would be too much work. Everywhere I turned I kept seeing French bulldogs and saw 2 when I got to Chicago that day. I told my daughter and left Chicago with Louie. My husband says it’s the best gift he has ever received. My son laughs at me and can’t believe I share my pillow with Louie most nights. What I took away that weekend is you only live once!
