GM: You’ve been on your wellness journey for so long. What inspires you to continue writing about all this?
S: Most of us are pretty familiar with what a comfort zone is. What I introduced in the book is how I discovered what I call a power zone, which is where you intentionally move the needle forward in your life in certain areas. You curate a power zone. You curate your inspirational cues, you curate your nutrition, you curate which exercises you want to explore, what kind of fitness pathways you want to explore, you curate things that feed your mind, you collect different meditations to try — you’re curating a power zone.
And that kind of sits there for you like a toolbox, just like you’ve got your chips and cookies and whatever else for your comfort zone. We stack our pantries with the things that give us comfort; then, we want to stack our pantries mentally, emotionally, physically with things that give us power, empowerment. I always have a toolbox of things that I can go to, to power up.
