[Listen] Make Your At-Home Workouts Something to Look Forward to With This Tip

Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care. 

This Tuesday, Kristen catches up with Steph Dietz. She’s on the brand marketing team at sweetgreen (and helping them do a ton of rad outreach in the healthcare community) and moonlights as a boxing instructor at Shadowbox Chicago. As a fellow person who strugglers to work out at home (me, the other person is me), she’s recommending creating a space in your home for workouts that you truly love. For Steph, that means keeping her yoga mat rolled out 24/7 and accenting that space with meditation cushions and a favorite candle—and if she can make it happen in a West Loop studio, maybe you can too.
