As photographers, we love getting the shot. Typically we aren’t just taking one shot either. We are creating a series or capturing a variety of poses and expressions. For many photographers, the act of capturing images is far more exciting than sitting down to narrow and edit. Even for those who enjoy manipulating their images in photoshop, fixing redundant avoidable issues is time-sucking and annoying. And if you don’t do your own editing, it still takes extra time for your retoucher to fix.
We're witnessing history in the making - a revolution for equality and justice. For some this revolution happening on our doorsteps, for others across seas.
The idea of creating “work-life balance” has taken on an entirely different meaning ever since the pandemic hurled us into quarantine life. It was hard enough to carve out time for self-care before the pandemic, but now it can feel almost impossible. We are working long hours from home while simultaneously running our households, taking care of the family and homeschooling kids. It’s impossible for anyone to manage all of this, but we are all doing our best. One of the most important parts in managing the stress of our current situation is ensuring we take time for self-care. You cannot be your best for everyone else if you aren’t your best self. It’s just like when the airlines tell you to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others. You’re no help to anyone else if you’re not ok!
With most fitness centers closed (at least in LA) or only partially open with smaller classes, one of the most significant conversations I've been having with people is how to stay on track and motivated during these times. I'm happy to report that you can still set fitness goals and actually reach them all from the comfort of your living room. There are some serious perks to home workouts like the fact that you can do it in your underwear if that makes you happy or how convenient and easy it is to fit into your schedule without worrying about a commute or traffic. I don't think it gets much better than that!! There's no need to compromise the quality of your workout or have the mindset that you can't hit your goals just because you're working out at home. So you ask how do we do it? Stay tuned because I'm going to share an incredible app that I recently found out about + a few other tips and tricks that will help you stay successful on your journey!
