I want to preface this article by saying that this is just my experience and I hope some of the things I have learned might help you.
Let’s talk about who I was two years ago compared to today.
Starting this business and getting it to where it is, has been the hardest thing I have ever done. I have gone through burnout, dehydration, weight gain, and probably depression.
Two and a half years ago when we moved into our HQ it was basically Dominos, Monster energy drinks, wine, lots of wine. I love wine…..now I want wine.
Last year, our eating improved, a lot of Freshii, coffee, but even more wine. We used to sit at the kitchen table in our HQ, drink wine and one of us would cry (Pandemic life).
I wouldn’t trade any of it. We are where we are because of all of the hard moments and there have been even more magical ones.
This year was very different for me. Way less wine, all food prep, and some other changes.
I eliminated coffee from my day. I never used to be a coffee drinker and only developed the habit when I was working at the university and everything seemed to be a coffee meeting.
I also started micro-dosing weed. I have never been a fan of marijuana and bought some edibles to help me sleep. One day I was so tired, I said screw it and took one at work.
