SKIPPING MEALS We’ve been doing intermitte­nt fasting without knowing it was called intermitte­nt fasting for a while. Now it’s become a thing. I don’t have to eat certain foods, but I do eat a lot of vegetables and I don’t eat red meat. Sometimes I’ll get a protein shake. I trust the Garden of Life stuff. But mostly, I eat when I’m hungry. Sometimes, I can do fine on one meal a day.

INNER CHILD One of my key thoughts is: Keep an open mind. If you can do this, it’s really refreshing. It refreshes you. Your body gets tired, you rest. Your mind needs to be refreshed too. But your mind has to be open to receive your refreshmen­t. This is how I think about staying creative.

I’ve always worked out. I grew up very active, running the mountains and such. Nobody had to tell me to do it. I just did it. My father was a fit exerciser. My mother was a fit exerciser. Since the pandemic though, I have a different mind-set. Don’t structure it.

Yesterday, I boxed. I have a heavy bag and I hit it for

FREESTYLE EXERCISE

15 minutes. Then I did one of those Peloton classes and did that for 20 minutes. After that, me and my boys, we played some soccer and juggled the ball. I have four kids; I use my children for my workout. Sometimes, I jump in the pool and swim after. I like to be free.

I use a soap for my face from Olga Lorencin skin care. She’s a friend of ours and she does things very naturally. I use moisturize­r from her, too.

CUSTOM SKIN CARE

PANDEMIC WEAR Today I put on jeans. I probably haven’t put on jeans in weeks. I’ve been in shorts and sweatsuits mostly. I have my favorite T-shirts I like. If they are there, washed, I always put on those. I think I like gray. I’ve been wearing a lot of gray. I’ve never been a brand person. I don’t care that much. I just go with what works. It’s what feels good.

STAYING ZEN What I’ve been doing is rolling with the punches. We’re not fighting against it. Instead, this is what’s happening. This is a part of life right now; let’s live it like that for a while and see what happens. I’m adaptable about this stuff. I don’t really miss anything.
