If there’s anyone who knows the ins and outs of managing an at-home schedule, it’s Melissa Wood-Tepperberg of Melissa Wood Health.
PureWow recently chatted with the health guru, who discussed everything from her self-care routine to her work-life balance. Here, Wood-Tepperberg explains how she’s coping during this time of social distancing.
How are you practicing self-care during this unique time?
It’s quite challenging these days trying to run my business on top of taking care of my two babes all day, but the one thing that’s really keeping me centered and sane is prioritizing my practice. I strive for ten to 15 minutes of meditation a day and about 20 minutes of movement (or anything I can get in really). It’s keeping me grounded with all the highs and lows and emotions that are coming up during this time. These practices are what make me feel my absolute best, so even on days I’m not feeling motivated to do something, I put on a song that makes me want to move and roll out my mat because I know it will immediately shift my entire mood.
How have you been staying connected with friends and family?
I’ve been doing Houseparty with my friends, group texts and Facetimes with family when I can.
