Rachel Zimbelman currently serves as the Why Workshop CEO and CBO for TheTravelJoint.com.
A few years ago I took a Dosha Quiz. A Dosha helps you identity your ayurvedic constitution, which refers to your genetically inherited physical and emotional qualities. I use the app. iVeda. After taking the quiz it will tell me what daily routine best suits me and the diet I should consider as well as recommending balancing practices, gems and metals.
I wake up with a lot of energy usually between 6:00 -6:30. I let my two dogs out to pee. (I have a mastiff and a chihuahua.) Stretch a little outside and say my affirmations for the day. I'll get myself cleaned up and at 7:15 I take my daughter to school. When I get home, I take the dogs for a quick walk then I do the same 10 minute chakra meditation everyday. This is where most of my creative ideas come to me.
8:00 am. I make my matcha tea with tumeric, almond milk and cannabis honey. I make a high CBD honey at home. I was diagnosed with Crohns 4 years ago and the high CBD, low THC honey has put me into remission. I eat a light breakfast of cereal and then get dressed for the day.
9:00 am. I head into work. I do all my creative work before noon. I'm currently finishing up the packaging, marketing and social media posts for two cannabis productions in Nevada. As well as a few branding projects for other companies. We take no more than 5 clients on retainer at a time in order to give them our undivided attention. I'll write a post for why workshop and the thetraveljoint.com, or get creative done for upcoming events. At 12:20 pm. I pick up my daughter for lunch and get back in time to return emails, take meetings, brainstorm with the team and finish up projects. I pick my daughter up from school at 3:00 and head into the home office where I usually stay until 6:30 or 7:00. I'll make dinner, while catching up on some news. We try to eat dinner as a family and we usually play some type of board game together or watch a movie. On a good night I will get some Pilates in or a longer meditation to end my day before showering and falling asleep around 10:00pm.
