3 ways Dr. Lathon practices self-care:

  1. I meditate regularly and listen to insightful and motivational videos daily. These tools help keep me centered, calm and thinking clearly.  When I’m feeling particularly stressed, I take the time to meditate and reset my energy.
  2. I workout 5 days a week (three times a week with a trainer) to reach my fitness goals. Exercise is a critical element of holistic health so I enlist help to ensure I stay on track. I feel better, stronger and it always lifts my mood.
  3. I take time off. When you work for yourself, it is very easy to work all of the time! Even though I love what I do, I deliberately take some time off to do absolutely nothing and it feels great! It helps me recharge.
