I’ve been listening to Davida’s postcast, That’s So Maven, since she released the first season in the fall. Like many of you, I tend to answer her hot seat questions for myself as I listen along. Since actually going on her podcast is a long-shot, I figured I’d answer them for myself in a blog post. And if you aren’t listening to That’s So Maven and you’re a blogger, I highly recommend it!
The Hot Seat Questions
What’s the one healthy habit you can’t live without?
Be it walking to and from work, running two or three days a week, or hitting up a barre class three days a week.
I can’t manage my anxiety through exercise alone, but it makes a huge difference in my ability to function.
I also really value alone time and sitting on the couch with the cats, tea, and a book.
Who do you look up to?
Without a doubt Marlo Brausse, the owner of Barre Body Studio. I had the pleasure of attending an information session for potential instructors over the weekend and hearing her story. She opened the first barre studio in Alberta and has created a beautiful community of instructors are barre stars at her studio. We all had an opportunity to say why we loved barre, and the resounding response was the community within the studio. I’m someone who can come and go from classes without ever talking to someone (hello introvert!) but I’ve managed to connect with many of the instructors and barre stars and it just makes the classes way more enjoyable (oof, that’s a bad sentence, but y’all know what I mean).
What do you wish you could tell your 20-year-old self?
I’m not a big believer in regrets. I believe I do the best I can in the moment with the information I have. Now, I certainly haven’t always been this way, I used to worry and replay conversations over and over (and over) in my head and it made me miserable.
If there’s one single thing I could change, it would be getting help for my anxiety earlier. Heck, I didn’t even know I had anxiety until I was almost 30. While I’d like to know what those 10 years would have been like if I hadn’t constantly been beating myself up, I also believe I took away some great lessons and am a better person because of it (not in spite of it).
What do you hope to know by 50?
Gosh this question is so hard.
There’s a part of me that would love to be married and have a family (whatever that looks like for me) at 50, but my life and happiness isn’t dependent on that. (Hmmm, I should potentially write a post about relationships after divorce.)
I want to be comfortable in my skin. I want to continue to have amazing friendships and supportive women in my life. If my friends’ would commit me, I’d rescue all the cats. I want to make a difference in the world (whatever that looks like for me).Ange pretends she's a guest on @TheHealthyMaven's podcast & answers the Hot Seat questionsClick To Tweet
