Along with your morning coffee, what are your morning rituals?
"Meditation. I learned to meditate through the Vedic Meditation approach, which advocates two 20 minute meditations—one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. And I usually go on a walk around the neighborhood."
With such a strong following on social media, how do you cope with the pressure of constantly being in the public eye?
"I don’t think much about the public eye aspect! I’ve been drawn to social media and Instagram because I’ve always enjoyed photography and visual mediums. I only like posting when it’s a photo I admire, so I use it in a way that stays true to myself. Also, having our company, Canyon Coffee, for which I also run social media, helps remind me that in many ways social media is a tool. It’s about projecting a feeling and vibe that resonates with me, and I’m able to separate that from myself."
Do you have any tips for a successful social media detox?
"I’ve never taken an official detox, though I have gone long stretches without sharing. If I did, though, I’d probably be focusing more on meditating, walking, eating well — doing things that help me feel clear, focused, and healthy."
