VANESSA CRAFT

@vanes­sacraft edi­tor-in-chief “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.”

ELENA VILTOVSKAIA

@evil­tovskaia as­so­ciate art di­rec­tor “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.”

CARLI WHITWELL

@car­li­whitwell man­ag­ing edi­tor “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.”

CIARA RICKARD

@cia­ra_rickard pro­duc­tion & copy edi­tor “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.”

VIC­TO­RIA DIPLACIDO

@vic­to­ri­adiplacido beauty edi­tor “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.”
