When do you feel most powerful?

When I’m running along the clifftops near my home or swimming in the sea. Often guiding my little girls through new places or experiences makes me feel like a lioness. The urge to protect them and answer their questions makes me feel so alert and in the moment.

When do you feel most vulnerable?

When I’m running late or have overcommitted to too many things and am worried about how I will get it all done. I think it’s important to stop and feel vulnerable when unexpected events remind me of the fragility of life and how quickly things can change. But mostly, I spend most of my time pretending I’m invincible

How do you reconnect with yourself?

Mostly by escaping for some time alone to exercise outdoors. Breathwork and meditation help too - especially when I'm pressed for time. And if I can’t do any of those things I reach for chocolate.

What's your favorite sense & why?

My favorite sensations are all water related so it must be touch. Floating in the sea, that rush you get when you dive through a wave, getting dumped in the surf or plunging into a cold pool. I love feeling the sun on my skin. I’m always hugging or holding hands with my daughters or playing with their hair. I also love playing with clay and making things with my hands. They are all touch-related sensations. Although I do love taste sensations too. And baking smells make me swoon.
