    “Dance classes are my meditation. Remembering the steps in such a tough workout takes all my concentration— I’m completely in the moment. Add in the loud music and camaraderie and I’m on a high afterwards.”

    “It is such a cliché, but getting enough sleep is the most important aspect of self-care for me. It affects my energy levels, my mood and even how hungry I get during the day.”

    “I crave restorative alone time, so I try to sneak it in whenever possible—on the subway with a book, on a run at lunch, by avoiding calls after 9 p.m. (Sorry, Mom!) It gives me the time I need to reset so I’m actually excited to talk and hang with people.”

    “I go outside. Even though I live in the city, I try to find a little patch of wilderness to Zen out in or leave town and go for a hike. Being in nature always restores me a little.”

    “I’m most productive in the morning, so I protect that time. Open offices can make it incredibly challenging to stay in the zone, especially if you need quiet to focus, so I start my day at 8 a.m. or earlier, before things get crazy.”
